Auntie Phebe was my piano teacher from 5th to 9th grade and also taught my sister and brother for many years. Teaching piano requires more knowledge than just musical knowledge, but also the ability to meet student's mental and emotional needs in the sometimes arduous learning process. Besides her extensive knowledge gained from her experience as a lifelong performing pianist, Auntie Phebe always rose to the challenge to encourage and instill confidence in me and my siblings when necessary. Auntie Phebe is superb at meeting each individual student's needs in order to help them achieve their goals in piano. She is amazing at helping her students overcome obstacles in learning whether we struggled with mental blocks that prevented us from mastering a skill or had trouble mastering a tricky rhythm. Auntie Phebe always pushes her students to continually improve their playing by having high expectations of them. With Auntie Phebe teaching me, I passed CM level 7. She helped me grow as a pianist in the years I was with her into a confident, independent piano player that I am now. My siblings and I all loved and miss having Auntie Phebe as our piano teacher. Out of all the piano teachers I've ever had, Auntie Phebe remains my absolute favorite. She truly cares about each and every one of her students as both people and pianists. I cannot recommend Auntie Phebe highly enough. You will be hard-pressed to find a piano teacher as qualified, knowledgable, and genuine as she is.

Just used Ryan for a jazz quartet audio recording and not only did he mix/master the track he also arranged and played on the track himself. Talk about an incredible diverse area of skill sets. Great jazz and classical player, and music theorist as well. Will definitely hire him again!

We found Amy through a mutual friend and were so grateful to find her! My son started guitar lessons with Amy in 6th grade and took lessons for about 2years. He went on to play jazz guitar at HSPVA. We credit Amy for giving him that first guitar foundation he needed. Amy has a great talent to match the student with musical interests so that playing was fun, never a chore. She fostered collaboration among her students, giving my son his first chance at playing in a "rock band". Her recitals are fun and more like talent shows; with vocals, piano, guitar, and student bands. Enjoy and learn!

Let's just say we have had Alot of piano lessons from many people who are trained,etc... This is the only teacher my son practices for every day without any encouragement from me. It's wonderful. Barry is more than a teacher, hes a great composer,pianist and inspiring artist. His students are very fortunate to be in his studio.

I have enjoyed working with Ray very much and hope that I work with him again soon.

    Tom is a most excellent guitarist and a great guitar teacher. He taught me everything from metal and jazz to country and Christmas tunes. He will work with you on any issues and is very patient when the exercises take a little while to master. He has been playing guitar since he was young, went to college for music, and really knows his stuff. I highly recommend Tom Savage for all of your guitar learning needs.

    We've been going to Mr. D for 4 years. He is an amazing pianist and has a lot of tools (fun worksheets, songs, games) to help motivate kids to learn piano and piano theory. He also uses positive reinforcement (praise and stickers).

    Clara is awesome! She tutored me over the summer before I began my freshman year at Berklee College of Music, and helped prepare me for the Entering Student Proficiency Assessment. She has excellent jazz theory knowledge and solfege skills, and as a Berklee alum, she was able to help me prepare for college-level work. With her tutoring, I was able to test into Ear Training 3 and Harmony 2X (an intensive course), when I previously had only had limited knowledge of jazz theory. All the work Clara assigned was very helpful - even after 2 semesters at Berklee, I still use some of the methods she taught me! Clara is great if you want a lot of personal focus, flexible class times, and a nurturing learning environment. She is very professional and very patient, which makes her a great teacher. Her extensive knowledge makes her suitable for any music tutoring you might need. I highly recommend Clara!

    Mike Ali is an exceptional Music Instructor as I had the experience of working on staff with him in the Los Angeles Unified School District and I feel he would be a great asset to any Music Staff with the wealth of musical knowledge and experience he has in a variety of areas which include Band, Orchestra, Jazz Band, Bass Instructor, and Recording Engineer.

      Raquel and her band gave us a really strong hour of music. Her vocals are powerful and make you feel her emotions. The band is talented and work well together and they looked like they enjoyed entertaining us. They were very professional in set up and management of their part of the event. They were perfect for our party and we would definitely like to have them back.

      Ms. Margo is a classically trained piano teacher. Her qualifications were what first made me feel good about our decision to work with her, but I also like the lessons were taught in my home. She seemed genuinely interested in what my child had to say and they had good rapport. She is strict but not mean. I like that quality as my child responds to it. If my child did not have expectations from her teacher she would not progress as she did.
