Amber Rocks!!! Amber has been coming to our home to give my son, Mason (age 13), private viola lessons for several months now. She is always on time, is also flexible about the times, and is incredibly sweet. She asked Mason what kind of music he was interested in learning, instead of just assuming classical, as so many teachers do. Although I believe classical is very important to know as a base, for a 13 year old boy, it's important he learns music that also interests him, which will help keep him involved and continue on his musical journey. Amber understands this, and makes learning fun. She helps him with school auditions as well, because he wants to join the strings ensemble. Amber is very patient, kind and incredibly knowledgeable. She even travels the world to perform! I promise, if you try her, you will love her! You will not be disappointed and will continue to use her, and recommend her to others. With no hesitation at all; I highly recommend Amber. I wish I could give her 10 stars because she is truly amazing!

Deb is a very energetic teacher and is great to work with! I have been taking piano lessons (beginner level) with her for almost two months and it has been a really wonderful experience. Every lesson, we review what we discussed the previous week and move on to new material. Deb has been very good about giving me exercises and pieces to work on in between sessions. This has been very helpful and has helped me improve in the short time I've been taking lessons with her. I would highly recommend Deb as a piano teacher. She is also a very talented violinist!!!

Robert Bradshaw is not only the best violin instructor I've ever met but he's also one of the best men I have ever met. Mr. Bradshaw owns his own Haddonfield business in which he is surrounded by an extremely competent staff, which is filled with other instructors teaching instruments such as cello, violin, piano and more. Whether you are a parent interested in having your child learn an instrument or an adult who would like to learn an instrument or enhance your skills, you can't go wrong with Maestro Studios. Bradshaw stands out above all other music instructors because of his passion, enthusiasm and love for his job. You or your child's specific schedule or musical needs will be met. And to keep your interest in you or your child's instrument, Rob Bradshaw puts on great recitals and concerts and you or your child can even be part of the the pit orchestra for the local theater academy's shows. Reasonably priced lessons, great instructors, and incredible experiences.

I am an older student and learning the violin for the first time. Maria is helping me to make an impossible task (according to some), possible. She is patient and keeps the lessons interesting - I have been enjoying the experience of learning violin with Maria as my teacher.

We have been thrilled with Sunny! I was looking for someone to teach my 15 year old piano, and was incredibly lucky to find Sunny. In addition to her flexibility she and reasonable rates, Sunny has an incredible educational background and knowledge base. She has been a fun and engaging teacher for my daughter, and her cheerful personality gave her an instant rapport with my teenager. In the few months that she has taught my daughter, I am amazed at the progress I have seen.

About

My teaching experience in Philadelphia has also enriched my studies and development as a musician. I am an active chamber coach and orchestral player working alongside prominent Philadelphia musicians such as Glen Fischbach, Aaron Picht, and Marvin Moon, in Temple University’s musical prep school. I am also a teacher in a Main Line studio called Leading Tone Lessons LLC, with which I maintain a studio of 4 violin, viola, and piano students. In Wichita, Kansas, I studied my master of music with the violist of the Grammy-nominated St. Petersburg String Quartet, Boris Vayner. During my two years, I was a section violist in the Wichita Symphony Orchestra, a professional orchestra lead by Maestro Daniel Hege. Additionally, I served as principal viola in a chamber group called Suprima Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Boris Vayner. During my years in Kansas, I also played in the Wichita Grand Opera, which allowed me to learn many of the greatest opera compositions. I won several awards in Wichita in the surrounding region, including first prize in the Wolff-Bing Chamber Music competition, and third prize in the Arapahoe Concerto Competition in Colorado. Most recently, I had the fantastic opportunity to lead the viola section in the Silk Road Symphony Orchestra in Berlin, Germany. This orchestra is composed of musicians from around the world, bringing together diversity and the universal language of music.

We have 30 years of experience teaching private music. Lessons are available on flute, clarinet, oboe, sax, piano, guitar, voice, violin, viola, cello, trumpet, trombone and recorder. Student recommendations: "Our daughter started taking lessons, and in just about 3 months, we began to observe the progress our daughter was making. The music lessons were made easy and enjoyable, and soon our daughter began developing a great interest for music." "My daughter wasn't satisfied with her previous instructors, but she feels a lot more comfortable with her lessons now. I am very impressed with my daughter's accomplishment, which is due to her instructor's patience and expertise. She has proven to be a remarkably effective and motivated music instructor. Even our family's friends also speak highly of taking music lessons here." "During the time our daughter studied with you, she held you in high regard. Her opinion was borne out several times; at her audition for The Boston Conservatory, students literally stopped in the hallways to listen to the sound of her playing from behind the closed audition door. Furthermore, in her recent audition, the panel commented that her training was exceptional. You have made music a part of her, and enriched her beyond our meager abilities as parents. She had become tired of music, of being a musician, but you rekindled her desire to study music. In her words now, 'Music is my life!'" "My son's musical experience has been turned into a positive one. In 5th grade, he did not want to continue, so I found a teacher to help him catch up. What a difference. The teacher's positive attitude, patience and genuine love of music and working with kids soon became evident. Although, I don't know much about music, I came away impressed by the way she taught the mechanics and care of the instrument, and the technical and emotional aspects of playing the music. I wholeheartedly recommend this music teacher, who has the knowledge and experience, and teaches with enthusiasm and joy. I am thankful that we have had her as a music teacher over the past 4 years." "My daughter has been studying with this teacher for almost a year. In that time, I have watched as her technique and confidence improved dramatically. After a few months, her teacher's confidence in my daughter inspired her to audition for her school honors band. She not only made the honors band, but also placed 3rd chair out of 6. The prior school year, she lacked the confidence in herself to even try out. Her teacher is an enthusiastic teacher who takes great joy in her pupils' successes. I would definitely recommend her as a teacher." "My daughter's private teacher has been a great instructor with teaching the skills and techniques needed to achieve the goals my daughter has always wanted as a pianist. My daughter not only learned to read the notes, which she did not learn well with her previous instructor, but she can now play fluently the songs that she can enjoy. I truly recommend her, as she is very patient and enthusiastic about music. She is very responsible and communicates with the parents on scheduling to ensure that we are aligned with our time schedule. Finally, we thank her for making every piano lesson my daughter has enjoyable." "We happily give this oboe instructor our recommendation. During your time as Adrian's oboe and clarinet teacher, he has learned quite a lot on scale and counting, and now he can play comfortably in the school concerts. I must thank you so much for granting Adrian an opportunity to perform in your well-planned recital. Adrian has grown more confident to play his musical instrument." "This letter is my personal recommendation for our daughter's private music instructor. She has been my daughter's music instructor for several years. She is both very bright and quite dedicated. I am amazed at the ease with which Sharon can perform a variety of instruments. She is organized, very efficient, extremely competent, and has an excellent understanding with her students. My daughter was not satisfied with her previous instructors, but she feels a lot more comfortable with her teacher now. I am very impressed with my daughter's accomplishment; it is due to her patience and expertise. Our family's friends also speak highly of her. She has proven herself to be a remarkably effective, motivated music instructor. I strongly believe that her motivation, abilities and experience make her an excellent candidate. I would highly recommend her for your organization. Thank you very much." "I have a fourteen year old and an eleven year old who, under this teacher's tutelage, have not only really enjoyed working with her, but the knowledge she instills in them is beyond comparison. We started out taking lessons in a music store, and the environment made my children want to stay in the car until their lesson was called. The owner was a witch. Later, we began to take lessons with this teacher in her home studio and what a difference! Her teaching style and the environment was such a wonderful improvement. My children have come to appreciate music because of her. They have come out of their lessons saying, "Mom, I did well and she made me feel wonderful." If I were you, I would say I would want a teacher such as her. She is warm, caring, knowledgeable, instills a love of music, music theory, and music appreciation. She is the best! She will make you proud for choosing her, and I would be proud saying to you that you made the right decision. Please consider her for her outstanding ability. She is trustworthy and diligent, another two traits for which she stands out above the rest." "Our daughter has been taking piano lessons for the last 5 years. After her first 3 years, her first teacher discontinued teaching and this was when we were introduced to this wonderful person and a committed music teacher. Our daughter started learning piano from her, and in just about 2 to 3 months, we began to observe the progress our daughter was making. She made the music lessons easy and enjoyable, and soon, our daughter began developing great interest for music. As we started interacting more with her, we learned that she also taught many other musical instruments apart from piano. This summer, she held a recital concert, where many of her students got a chance to perform. It was wonderful to listen to children play on the piano, violin, guitar, cello and flute, but what was truly amazing was that all of them were students of one teacher. She is truly talented, devoted, thorough, professional and a great teacher. She is always smiling and has a very pleasing personality. Our daughter adores her. We are very lucky that our daughter is learning music from such a terrific person."
