I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Tona is an amazingly compassionate and dedicated instructor. She provides voice, violin, and piano lessons to my 3 children; with great flexibility to their varying interests and moods. They are developing a wonderful appreciation for music and the capacity to make their own. Tona is very talented, open, and dedicated to her profession. I would recommend her without reservation.
I am excited to have started lessons today with Debbie and look forward to learning to play the piano.
Dr. Whited has been instructing my teenage son for about 90 days. He is a classical musician who has several years of musical experience on the string bass. He is an accomplished high school string bass player who participates in several local symphonic orchestras. He wanted to take piano lessons over the summer break to obtain a proficiency on the piano that he could use as he approaches college, and potentially a career in music. As a young adult with a lot of technical knowledge of classical music, the challenge was to create an educational environment that was interesting enough to keep him fully engaged, while providing instruction on the beginner-level basics that he needs on the piano. Dr. Whited has done an outstanding job of providing this education in an interesting and challenging manner. We are still taking lessons (at the request of my son who does not want to quit now that school is starting) and hopefully my son will accomplish more than just basic piano proficiency as he moves forward with his instruction over the next year or so. Whatever the outcome is, we feel like Dr. Whited has the maturity, professionalism, flexibility and experience to provide him with the individual approach that he needs. We highly recommend her to all prospective students of all ages as an outstanding teacher.
Laurie is very thougtful and kind. She has been taught piano to my 10-year-old daughter since this June. Laurie is always calm and helpful. We love our piano lesson. These days, my daughter plays piano pretty well and I’m happy I can enjoy beautiful piano!
Hello - I'm happy to share our experience with Serini Piano Studio! Our son, age 10, has been a student of Serini Piano Studios for about a year and half. We also just recently started lessons for our 6 year old son. I couldn't recommend a better teacher. Her style is so warm and nourishing, yet she keeps the kids on task and really productive. She has a great feel for each kids' strengths and draws on their personality and adapts her lessons to the student. My oldest son has ADHD and can lose focus very easily, but she manages to keep him interested and thriving with his lessons and love of piano. We hope to continue with Serini Piano Studio for years to come!
Have agreed to get lessons for family member. Looking forward to the results!
My 6 year old son took the piano lessons with Lisa for over a year and I am amazed at his tremendous improvement in such a short time span. She is very patient and encouraging and my son really enjoys her class. Great experience with Lisa all the way around. Highly recommended!
Juliett is a very encouraging and very patience teacher. I am new to singing, yet she knows how to explain basic concepts well for me to understand. With Juliett's help, I see myself making progress in singing. Juliett is a very experienced teacher in singing and I truly enjoy my singing lessons with Juliett!
Hiroko teaches beginning piano to my daughters (4 and 6). She is a patient and caring teacher. They have progressed very nicely since starting with her. She also does a good job of checking in with me and adjusting the pace/difficulty of the lessons to keep the kids challenged but not frustrated.
Mr.Brendan is so great with the kids in choir at Church! He teaches while providing fun times as well. We love you Mr.Brendan! Stacey and Evie Bang
Singing in church choirs has been a wonderful outlet and enabled me to find a community as I moved every few years to different parts of the globe. Finally putting down roots, I wanted to find a voice coach who would help me improve breath control, strengthen the range of my voice, and improve the overall quality of my singing. I am blessed to have found Keely Bosworth Borland, a gifted soprano and performer. Keely has been the perfect coach for me. She has a unique ability to both nurture and push me. Keely has identified and helped me work on my breath control. She has used a wide variety of music to foster my confidence while stretching my vocal range. Her lessons include a selection of vocal warm-ups and breathing exercises each week that compliment the music we sing. I have found that recording her lessons and rehearsing them between lessons to be of great help. I highly recommend Keely to anyone looking for a voice coach from the novice to the serious performer.
SooJi was fantastic. She was very patient and had a great sense of humor. Very likable and I learned so much Korean. She really tailored the lessons to my needs
John tutors our family in piano. He has an excellent method of progression of lessons and the role of lessons to expand the appreciation and the understanding of the music. He has a gentle approach which is good for the little ones but also drives the older ones with goals and instills passion for music.
My 3 year old son has been taking lessons from Mr. Price for several months now. He is progressing well and has kept his intetest in piano up. Mr. Price is very responsible and we enjoy his teachings.
Yukiko is a very caring and thorough teacher. My older daughter has been taking lessons for the past two years and enjoying improving her piano and music skills very much.
We’ve had our son with Dave at age 7 until now. It’s been almost two years with Dave being his teacher. I’m so grateful that Dave is his first teacher for piano. Dave is patient, gentle, dedicated and makes things fun for my child. There were times where our son had a rough patch with certain pieces of music (and still does) and Dave guides him through it with confidence. Dave is musically gifted and all his students will say the same thing about him. He is passionate for music and piano and it shows with his teaching. If you are looking for a wonderful piano teacher who really knows their stuff you’ll be thrilled with Dave.
Marc is such a delight to work with. He is an excellent piano teacher, patient with the kids, teaches them not only how to play but the music theory and historical context. He is super organized and helpful when it comes to scheduling too. So glad we found Marc!
My daughter is having a wonderful time learning piano with Stephanie. She is a fantastic musician/teacher and her lesson plans are really fun and informative! My husband and I have seen a vast improvement in our daughter's playing with each lesson. Highly recommended!
I help pianists develop their unique ability to play piano with more freedom, confidence, and communicative power. My studio is located in the heart of Washington DC (conveniently located between Capitol Hill and H St. NE). If you also live in Washington DC, I can travel to you when schedule permits!
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
