My initial session with Tod was to establish a baseline since I had taken piano lessons in the last few years. He perfectly asked questions, explained techniques and chords, and watched as I also played and read the music (inadequately). I would recommend Tod to my friends.
I haven't started my piano lessons by her yet, but my contact with her has been informative, prompt and cordial. I look forward to being her student!
Olivier gave about 4 lessons to my 11 year old daughter. He is a very good teacher in that he is patient and relaxed. He put my daughter at ease and encouraged her to think about songs she'd like to learn how to play. I appreciated his punctuality and the fact that he would come to our house for the lesson. My daughter ultimately was not interested enough in guitar to stick with it, but I don't know that there's anything Olivier could have done to change that. If she chooses to have more lessons in the future, I am sure I will contact him again. The only reason I do not rate him as "outstanding" is that we really didn't have enough lessons with him to give such a high rating, nor did we see my daughter really progress or get excited about it. Overall, I was very pleased.
Truly cares about the student's success. Willing to be flexible for scheduling voice lessons times. Very knowledgable about the voice and how to produce the best quality of sound.
Nate immediatlely replied to my request for guitar lessons, and went beyond what I would have expected by offering to go guitar shopping with me. He is extremely talented, and he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He was also very flexible in setting up a lesson time that worked with my schedule.
Ms Acuna is very innovative, and spectacular with her approach of music and music teaching. She is very thoughtful of her teaching method, explaining every details of what the students need to improve their playing.
Adella has been our piano teacher for 2 of our children since they started taking piano lessons 3+ years ago. My children are 3 years apart and have very different personalities, temperaments, and learning styles. Adella has adapted to meet each of their needs and make sure that both are getting the instruction they need, yet by also making it an enjoyable (and fun!) experience. It is very convenient for us that she comes to our house to provide the lessons, and has become like part of our family. Even my child that is too young to take lessons yet, runs to greet Adella upon her arrival each week. Each spring, Adella coordinates a recital which my children look forward to. I highly recommend Adella and continue to be impressed with the progress both of my children have made under her direction.
My daughter started taking lessons from Dana about a month ago! She has made so much progress in a very short amount of time. Dana is enthusiastic and so much fun! Dana is professional while at the same time makes learning fun. It is obvious that music is her passion! My daughter loves going to piano lessons!
Responds quickly. My son loves video game music, and Edward is great in this area. For the first lesson, he gave my son a good overview of options.
Tonya is one of the best piano teachers I have personally worked with. I have worked with a handful of other piano teachers in the past, attempting to learn the instrument, and several teachers have either gotten irritated with me and said that I did not try, or did not have the patience to try and teach me the right way, and stopped teaching me. Tonya was good about being both patient and helpful at correcting me with a multitude of errors I experienced in my time as her student. She was also very good about moving at my pace throughout the lesson. She had a very good feel for what I could handle, and she was good about keeping up when we breezed through the fast sections and also slowing down and providing feedback when we experienced longer, more difficult stretches of a song or hand signature that took me longer to process and understand. She also has a really great background in the instrument, and she has pointed out many different examples of classical piano music and other styles and songs for the piano that I have never experienced before, which just goes to show how passionately she feels about the instrument! On top of all that, she was very good about scheduling and being flexible with communication. Because I was commuting from so far away from her town to get lessons, I often had to jump through loops with getting rides from my mom and dad. Also, with my work and schoolwork on top of it all, I had to change the dates and times for lessons with Tonya many, many times. She was very flexible with lessons and was very good about communicating lesson plans and working out scheduling, whether I used email or phone to contact her. My only personal disappointment with Tonya is that I had to so abruptly end my lessons with her. She was easily the best piano teacher I have ever had, and she has rekindled my love for the piano, and I continue to practice the work she has taught me daily in hope that I can pick up lessons again someday. I would highly recommend Tonya to anyone who wants to learn the piano, as she is a very talented musician and teacher. Great and easy to work with, and I loved the service she provided me at the reasonable price she offered! ~Tyler K.
Joshua provides piano lessons for my son. He started as a begginer without any previous knowledge of playing the piano. Since we've started my son is not only playing music but reading it as well! The lessons are very thorough and informative. I have referred Joshua to people all over the city!
I worked with Mike over a period of several months last year, I had a goal piece in mind that felt over my head at the time, and he worked with me towards that goal by starting with the basics, some exercises, theory, and instruction on how to practice piano music since I had never had any official instruction, just tinkering by ear that I did when I was younger. Mike paid attention to things I could do to stay motivated as I worked through our lessons and practice time, and when he felt that I was ready for the goal piece we started breaking it down into sections and he guided me through practicing the sections. I did successfully learn my goal piece and still go back and play through it for enjoyment on a regular basis. Really happy with what I learned.
Jordan provided guitar lessons for my son for 2.5 years. My child did not have any previous experience with a guitar or with music in general prior to his lessons. Under Jordan's guidance, my son has not only learned the basics, but he has learned to love music. My child can now play classical, jazz, and rock; he has even performed some Ozzy Osbourne for a talent show in front of over 150 people at school! My son has gained confidence in himself and his musical ability through his lessons. I am so glad that Jordan was able to work with my child!
I loved the way he presented music to me, I had been struggling for a long time with the guitar and he got me playing my favorite song in a month, and singing along too!! The class was fun and dynamic so I was never bored or uninterested. Thumbs up!
I have been teaching piano for nearly thirty years. I focus on enjoying the instrument and music in general. I am a believer in promoting enjoyment, in addition to a strong base in musical theory. I offer piano lessons for a lifetime of enjoyment.
My method is fairly orthodox -- I teach what is needed for a student to actually be able to play songs in just a few weeks. While we will learn the basic chord shapes and scales, I will also teach alternative tuning, many of which have much simpler chord shaping, enabling some popular songs to be learned even by the beginner.
I am a piano, cello and music theory teacher. I have a BA in Music (Cello Performance, Minor in Piano) earned from a music college in Russia. I am highly professional. Since 2010, my students participated in over 25 recitals and concerts at College of William and Mary, Crosswalk Community Church, King's Way Church, Tabernacle Baptist Church, Greenfield Senior Living, Patriot's Colony, and many other venues. My students also participated in The National Federation of Music Clubs for the last 4 years in a row. All of them received superior rating, and four of them already received Golden Cups. I have been judging piano solo events for the last 3 years. Our recent performing project was playing in the Bard's Market at the Virginia Shakespeare Festival. Three of my students did an exceptional job entertaining the audience by playing a classical piano repertoire. I also provide wedding/special occasion entertainment (cello, piano, and violin) as a trio, duet, solo in any combination.
I have been instructing all ages, from 5 years old through 65 years old for some 35 years. I'm a VCU graduate in piano performance and organ and church music minor. I would appreciate new students as well as playing and/or directing music programs in a small- and medium-sized Protestant congregation.
I teach beginning to intermediate private violin lessons. Students aging five and older can learn privately through an experienced teacher in a wonderful facility.
I play the trombone, and I offer lessons for trombone and beginner trumpet players. I also offer lessons in music theory. Music is my passion and I enjoy sharing it with others.
I teach what the student wants to learn. We can play any genre or song he/she would like to learn. We put a big emphasis on the fun of music and how music makes your life better.
