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.

Great experience with Smithson Music. Alvin did a wonderful job getting my long-unused and untuned piano back to sounding wonderful. The price was exceptionally good and we will absolutely use Smithson Music going forward. Couldn't be more pleased.

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!

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.

Joshua has been a superior teacher. His time and effort both during the lessons and between them has been instrumental in my appreciation of the piano. Though I played for a number of years, I haven't touched a piano in almost 15 years. Joshua has found music and a training method that really appeal to me, making learning the piano (again) a great joy. I would recommend him to anyone looking to rekindle their appreciation for music.

Joshua is patient, kind and brings with him a thoughtful approach to teaching young people the piano. My son was reluctant to having formal piano lessons (similar to Joshua, my son was self teaching himself). But he has responded favorably to having Joshua as a teacher/coach. Kudos Josh.

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.

Sammy Huh is an outstanding music instructor with a true love for music and a desire to assist his clients with meeting their goals. Sammy has awesome patience with a keen ear to listen to what his clients seek in their music goals; listening to the current skill level and method and assessing practice lessons during the session and comparing homework assignments during next sessions to help meet the notes needed to support owning the piece. He is a wonderful instructor with an easy going smile, very friendly, courteous and highly professional. Sammy takes music to heart, personally participating in several performances and choirs (he can sing and he provides vocal lessons!). Sammy is an instructor you want to work with. I'm glad he is my piano instructor. I have learned a lot from him and thank him very much for his wonderful patience as I grow in my piano study.

I have been taking vocal lessons with Sammy for six months. He has been the utmost professional, personable, and flexible with scheduling. However, my favorite part about our lessons remains the way in which Sammy works with you to get every song to its best quality without compromising a fun experience. All in all, he's not only talented, but a great teacher. There are also adorable cats to accompany most lessons. Highly recommend.

I am a fan of piano lessons with Sean primarily because he works at your pace and works with the direction you want to move toward with your music. He is extremely flexible with scheduling lessons - I decided to meet on a bi-weekly basis and whenever a need has come up to postpone a lesson, he has always been very understanding and hasn't had any problem with rescheduling. I have only been taking lessons for a few months with Sean and this was my first time learning how to read and play piano music, but I can already hear the difference from what it was like when I first started to now. He does focus in on technique, yet also allows time for playing music that you want to play. If you're a student that enjoys a little more flexibility and less rigid lessons, this is the instructor for you. He is extremely reliable and great with responding back to you. His passion for piano music is clear and if you ever get a chance to hear him play, he's great to listen to on the piano!

Sean has instructed both of my children in piano (6 and 8 years old) since summer of 2017. He is very patient and adjusts his style to meet their learning styles, interests and personalities. He is less structured than how I experienced learning piano as a child (kids do not have extensive homework, warm ups, drills etc.). However, his style has helped them make progress in both their technique and ability to read music and has inspired them to keep going. Sean has a calm demeanor and interacts with the kids in a way that is both supportive and respectful. We have also appreciated Sean's willingness to be flexible to our busy sports/social schedules - rearranging days/times when needed. Lessons in our home is a big bonus as well!

Theresa Bliss was a very unique music teacher for all three of our children. I use the word "unique" because she was always so patient and attentive to every detail of teaching our children piano. She always displayed exceptional qualities as an instructor and friend. I know it was not always fun to teach our boys but she always gave 125%. We had had several teachers prior to meeting Theresa Bliss and she was by far the most professional and outstanding. Thank you.

Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high quality—they cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.

My son has been playing the piano for the last eight years but was getting bored and wanted to give it up. He thought he might prefer composition. I thought we should try switching teachers before giving up playing the instrument, and we found Mr. Cobbins. I am so thankful that we did! My son really likes learning with him and is enthusiastic about playing again. He also has been experimenting with composition, and Mr. Cobbins has been very helpful in this regard. We would highly recommend Mr. Cobbins.

Chris is an awesome teacher! He has been such an inspiration to my young teen son who never played piano before Chris. He goes the extra mile with his students, is innovative, keeps my son's attention and motivates! He not only teaches traditional music that he knows is appropriate for the level and ability of his students, but also allows them to request their own songs of interest to learn. He keeps communication open with parents. My son has learned so much! Definitely the best! Highly recommend!

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.

Our daughter, 13, has been taking voice lessons with Keely for almost a year, and has had a terrific experience. Keely has taken the time to get to know our daughter, her strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and she makes effective use of the lesson time, finding music our daughter enjoys (musical theater), as well as challenging her with music she might not otherwise have been exposed to. Keely is very encouraging, abounding in patience, and a lot of fun to work with. Our daughter loves her lessons!

John Kunu is flexible in his approach to teaching, he brings many styles & skills to the keyboard, and he is willing to teach to what the goals of the student are rather than a regimented steps approach. John has been my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We are a musical family so it was important to us to choose a teacher with the depth in classical but also the breadth of knowledge in contemporary pop music, in order to keep our teen engaged in what she was learning. John's flexibility to teach to her interest areas while still making sure she mastered foundational skills and repertoire are rare in a piano teacher. We love that he weaves both classical instruction and improvisation so that a student is comfortable playing a piece of Bach as well as the latest songs on the radio. This has kept the learning fresh and relevant. But the greatest thing of all is when we hear our daughter wander over to the piano and just play -- she sounds beautiful and it is utter joy hearing your child make music and know that she will have this for a lifetime.

John has been teaching my daughter to play piano for a long time. He is an outstanding musician, is very patient and incredibly flexible.

I have known Joanna for over 30 years now, and know that even back then she had a sheer musicality both at guitar and keyboards. Her handling of elementary school students of any grade when teaching, then middle school and older, was always carefully measured, often catering to individual needs in order to bring out or focus musical gifts, or simply to raise the level of a student's appreciation for art. She has kept that measure of regard for students of all ages since she went into non-school teaching. I also would assure anybody who wants to send a younger student to her that if after an appropriate period of time she felt they were not progressing or that music was perhaps not a good fit for them that she would be honest about that to the parents rather than have anybody waste time and resources trying to engage a child with other interests. But her goal has always been, as I have observed, to find a way to engage them in the first place. Results and honesty, as well as musical passion. What more need be said. (Please know that as a professional musician myself that this is as unbiased an opinion as I can possibly render.)

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.

As an adult returning to piano after decades, I found Suzie to be an amazing teacher who has empathy for where her student is at the moment. Always encouraging and understanding, there is never a stupid question for Suzie so I know she is also excellent with children. Suzie is excellent in teaching theory as well, in ways that are clear. Moreover, Suzie is willing to teach favorite songs if you have them, and she seeks out music that is appealing to the student. I highly recommend, without any reservation, the Dotson Piano Studios for both adults and children.
