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.

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 have been taking piano lessons with Toni Serini for about four years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I started with no instrumental experience at all, at age 61. That background made it especially important that Toni is knowledgeable, very patient, and extremely affirming. As a professional teacher myself, I can attest to the importance of each of those characteristics for student motivation and enjoyment. Toni clearly loves piano, and loves teaching the enjoyment of playing, to both adults and children. I have seen both groups thrive with her lessons. I’m so happy that a chance enrollment in a community college course led me to her!

My 7 year daughter has been taking private lessons with Hiroko for 2 years, and my 5 year-old son started last year. They are both making good progress. Hiroko is a very supportive teacher, who encourage my kids to enjoy the music as well as to develop correct technique. My daughter has been playing a wide-range of music at her level and enjoys composing little pieces with the help of Hiroko.

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.

Mrs. Dotson is one of the most experienced, patient, kind, knowledgeable, and gracious professors. We have had other piano professors before but none truly as wonderful as Mrs. Dotson. She demonstrates genuine interest in the growth of her students. She caters her teaching towards the individual interest of her students in order for them to reach their true potential and keep the classes always interesting and challenging. Consequently, she's an amazing professor for students of all ages. We can't rave enough about her. We always recommend her to any of our friends who are looking to either have their children or they themselves want to learn not only how to play the piano but also music theory, virtuosity, composition, and develop an authentic love for piano music of all genres.

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.

Excellent teacher who teaches music very holistically: not just how to play the piano but ear-training, theory, improvising, music history, and more. My son has made huge gains in just two years. Highly recommend.
