Barbara is an excellent music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.

My son and I have been taking piano lessons from Mayu for 5 years. My son started as a beginner, when he was 3 years old. I started, as wanting to improve my skills, after so many years of mediocre playing. Mayu always shares her rich knowledge of music with us. We are very happy with our progress.

We contacted Aakash Mittal about clarinet lessons for our son after he gave a presentation at our son's 5th grade instrumental music class. We’re very glad we did. Our son improved quickly during the three years he took lessons from Aakash. He received music awards at Centennial Middle School, twice auditioned into CU Boulder’s Middle School Honor Band, made first clarinet at CU’s Middle School Band Camp, and auditioned into Boulder High’s Wind Ensemble. To cap his time with Aakash, he gave his own clarinet recital, including three duets with Aakash, as well as the 3rd movement of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto with piano accompaniment. More importantly, the process that led to these accomplishments was genuinely enjoyable. Our son started off with a half-hour lesson each week, and liked it so much that he quickly moved to an hour lesson. Aakash has an excellent teaching style. After our son played a piece, Aakash would ask what he thought went well, and what needed work. Aakash rarely had negative criticism and focused on what elements would improve a piece, and in getting students to honestly evaluate themselves. As our son gained skill and confidence, they got down to brass tacks more quickly—but still without him ever feeling guilty or chastised. Aakash’s primary instrument is the saxophone, but he thoroughly understands the clarinet. Lessons included instrument-specific tasks like fine pitch control, breathing, alternate fingerings, tonguing, and embouchure, as well as broader topics of playing exact rhythm, tempo changes, pitch, dynamics, and phrasing. Most importantly, he understands that, as time-consuming as these components are, they are ultimately “just” technical elements. After our son mastered them for a hard piece, they’d then work on exploiting them to play music that swoops and soars and comes from the heart. And though Aakash’s favorite style is pretty hyperactive jazz, he is comfortable with a wide range of musical styles. Our son played the MapleStory video game for years, and Aakash helped him learn transcriptions of several songs from the game. For one recital, our son found several Legend of Zelda transcriptions—evoking exclamations from other students like “We can play game music for a recital? I didn’t know that!” As our son’s taste gravitated toward classical music, Aakash was right there with him. Aakash was especially good at helping our son work on challenging pieces. Our son is always choosing music that seems a little (or sometimes, a lot) beyond his level. For example, the Mozart Clarinet Concerto is really a virtuoso recital piece. They took the 3rd movement one section at a time, sometimes playing very slowly to get the rhythms and notes right. Aakash had him try to play along with a full orchestra recording (where it was clear that playing at full tempo makes the piece exponentially more difficult.) Okay, that didn’t work, so they concentrated on getting it right at a slightly more relaxed tempo. Eventually, we brought in a friend of Aakash’s on piano, and the three of them worked on how to coordinate and figure out who was in charge of the rhythm. It made an exhilarating finale to our son’s solo recital. Aside from his skills as a teacher, Aakash is also quite practical. He knew that his own concert schedule affected his teaching schedule, so was good about trying to make up missed classes during the week, and was flexible when our own schedule interfered with lessons. We’re also impressed with his ambition—he knows that great musicians don’t sit around waiting to be “discovered”, but actively promote themselves and make things happen. We have seen him playing live with various people many times, and have enjoyed the variety of musical styles and partners. (Especially when he plays with electric violin. Hint, hint!) We enjoyed our three years with Aakash, and had mixed feelings about him leaving for India—happy for him, but sad that we were losing a great teacher. We can whole-heartedly recommend him for just about anything he’s trying to do.

As an adult student of the flute I cannot recommend Daniel’s teaching more. I have studied with him for just under two years and my progress on the flute has been amazing. Our lessons are focused and fun and because of his knowledge and expertise I feel confident he is guiding me in the right direction. Having his studio in mid-town Manhattan has also been a plus for me as it has been convenient from where I live. He is also a very talented musician! I highly recommend Daniel

Laura has given me saxophone lessons for many years. I find her approach very helpful to me, and she also takes into consideration what I am working on. She gives me lessons on Skype or in person, and we play a lot during the lesson, utilizing the theme of the current lesson. For example, if I was working on a blues in every key, she would have me review the blues structure, then play the head and solo on it in a few keys. If she was demonstrating how to deal with two chord changes with common chord tones, she would have me play the tune with that in mind as I solo on it. Rhythmically we are working on Brazilian rhythms currently, so she is having me work on some bossas using the specific samba or bossa rhythm during my solo. I start with vocally doing the rhythm, and then do it on the sax using one note, and then do it with the chord scale, eventually doing a solo in the rhythm I am trying to master at the time.I take away a lot every time I have a lesson, and enjoy working on the assignments she gives me.

I'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.

My 9-year old niece has been taking flute lessons with Kelly for about three years now and we couldn't be happier! Kelly is kind, patient and motivating and my niece looks forward to lessons every week. Not to mention she had progressed so much since she first started and has had the opportunity to play in a few recitals that Kelly organizes for her students. Kelly is a very detailed teacher and takes the time to go over every facet of flute playing, ranging from technique to musical expressivity. My niece is so inspired and absolutely loves Kelly-I cannot recommend Kelly highly enough!!

    Jared impressed me with his abilities with the clarinet. His sound is clear, beautiful and powerful. He definitely knows and understands music and the instrument. Jared worked with my technics, making a huge improvement on my sound in short time. He is able to work with any level of knowledge, from basic to advance, and accommodates the particular needs for making the learning process a great experience.
