After a great stint of piano and violin lessons, we just began with Johnny Walker, Aida's strings teacher, to start my son on cello. We are so impressed with him - he knows HOW to teach, asking questions, guiding my son to think and understand rather than a mere demonstrate-and-repeat style. My son immediately took to him and can hardly wait between lessons for the next. Thank you!
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!
Hannah taught my 2 daughters beginning violin. They first saw Hannah play violin at church when she was a teenager. Both were impressed with her ability to play and the beautiful sound. Hannah instructed my 7 and 8 year old girls in her home. She was always prompt; never kept us waiting and used her instruction time well. She used different techniques and showed her versatility in instructing when one of my daughters would struggle. My daughters have very different personalities and musical abilities and Hannah was able to pull the best out of both of them, encouraging them individually and their specific abilities. Hannah's love of music and her instrument is evident whenever you hear her play or instruct. She was patient, encouraging and desiring my girls to do well, which prompted them to practice and want to do well themselves.
Carly is a great match for my daughter. Her teaching style and enthusiasm are exactly what we desired in a violin instructor! I know my girl will progress under Carly’s tutelage! 🎻
William is both an incredible performer and teacher. I studied under him for a few semesters while taking lessons at the Eastman School of Music and I found his approach to technique and musicality to be very effective. He also pushes the importance of ear training and how it can help with intonation issues. Overall, William's a great guy to work with and he will push you to be better.
My son has been taking violin lessons for over 5 years and 4 of those years with Anna. Since then she has been molding him into a talented musician. While under her instruction he has auditioned and been accepted into the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra for the last 3 years. She sincerely cares about her students and their musical endeavors. We drive 45 miles from the eastern shore because there isn't another teacher that my son or I would rather him be with. I took violin lessons myself from Anna for about 3 years. I can say as an adult student, she made me feel very comfortable and taught me a lot.
Yalira was my daughters first ever violin teacher. Considering my daughter hadn’t touched a violin before, Yalira made it an enjoyable experience for her to learn the violin. Yalira has been doing a wonderful job on motivating my daughter who used to dread of having her violin lessons in the beginning. In addition to being patient and encouraging, Yalira’s musical expertise is also incredible.
I have completed four lessons with Crystal at M Institute for the Arts. I found the online booking system works well, and my lessons begin promptly. The classes are hosted in a nice location in Georgetown, and I have found Crystal to be a very encouraging and patient teacher. Looking forward to continuing!
I found Victor here on this website for a guitar teacher for my son and when it came down to needing to hire a teacher Victor had followed up with me. So I took advantage of the first free lesson and he's been my sons guitar teacher ever since. Victor is very patient and knowledgeable, the personal attention and care he gives to each individual child is wonderful. You can tell that he has a love for music and this is his passion. I've spoken to other families that he teaches(some for several years) and they all agree. He works well with my son on incorporating styles and songs he is interested in as well as teaching music theory and basics. My son was a beginner 6 months ago and now he is playing full songs confidently. He loves coming to guitar class and learning new techniques, and songs. I plan on continuing until my son can pay for lessons himself. I highly recommend Victor Crisen.
Stein Music Lessons has definitely helped me with my technique and has helped me become a better player and better individual. I have had other instructors before Mr. Angerstein, and I can say he is the best teacher I have ever had. I was his student for many years. He is super patient, understanding and really takes the time to help with any struggles you may have. Definitely goes above and beyond. Seeing him leave Texas is unfortunate. If I could, I would continue working with him. Not many instructors really care about their students like Mr Angerstein.
Janet was our son's violin teacher for 8 years. She was fantastic! She really catered to his interests. She is a patient and encouraging teacher. She kept him interested and challenged. She was very supportive of his concerts and Solo Ensemble - attending if she was available. He continues to play in college. She held intimate recitals in her home which were a great experience for the students. Thanks, Janet!
As an adult student with no music experience, I think that Christine does a good job breaking down the basics into something that can be easily followed. She is patient and will work to accommodate busy adult schedules. She recommended the Samuel Applebaum String Builder book; which I really like as it teaches the basic hand position along with the associated notes. Rather than learning to play by listening then learning the notes. Again she can tailor her lessons based on children or adults learning abilities.
I've known Todd for many years now & count him as a friend & mentor. His violin lessons are a pleasure -- they are fun & challenging. He knows his students' abilities & caters to them; on top of that, he's familiar with quite a range of musical genres. I highly recommend him!
Ms. Carol Brobst offers lessons for all ages in violin and viola at all levels as well as beginning harp. She is also available to give demonstrations of violin making and to coach string chamber music. "My mission is to offer a mentoring environment for all motivated students to make them realize their musical dreams, from the simple joy of making a pleasing sound to attaining a music career."
Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.
Ms. Linnea Marchie is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is enthusiastic about teaching violin and brings positive energy to each lesson so that my daughter looks forward her session and actually practices almost everyday ( It is amazing). We like Linnea very much.
Our son (now 8) has been taking lessons with the studio for about 2 years now. The teachers are great, share their love of music, make the lessons fun and serious all at the same time.
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!
