Janina Beran is very experienced working with the younger kids. Both of my boys started taking piano lessons when they were about 4 and half years old. Janina is patient with them, always making sure my kids understand the piece that they are working on. Through Janina's encouragments, my older son, now 7 years old, plays in recitals twice a year and takes the annual piano guild exams. In addition, he performs in school talent show every year. I see a positive transformation from a shy boy to a confident on stage performer. My younger son has been taking lessons for 5 months now. He keeps talking about how he wants to play as good as his older brother and performs on stage in school one day. All thanks to Janina for believing in my kids and with all of her positive reinforcements she has been giving them. I am so grateful that I have found a wonderful piano teacher!
Jan is very good piano teacher. She is patient and fun with my kids and she is very flexible about the schedule of the piano lessons also. Good rate for her piano lesson comparing to the market. Highly recommended.
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
I’ve been studying guitar with Mary for about two months now, and I can’t say enough good about her. tl;dr: Mary will understand and support your goals for guitar playing, and she is beyond capable of helping you reach those goals. First, Mary is very supportive and cognizant of my goals as a musician. If I had a song in mind that I wanted to learn, I’m absolutely sure she would help me learn it. As a beginner, however, I don’t have anything in mind and happily play the tunes she gives me. Speaking of tunes, she has so many on hand. Every week she gives me new sheets with songs that cover the technique we work on. Mary’s extensive lesson repertoire certainly helps fulfill my goal of expanding my musical vocabulary to more artists and genres, all while developing my skills on guitar. Similar to her supportiveness, Mary is also very understanding yet insistent. As a busy young adult, on average I work eight to ten hours a day and follow a daily workout regimen to boot. While my goal is to practice guitar at least 60 minutes per day, on many days I don’t have time and fall short. Despite less-than-ideal practice, Mary accommodatingly works around the progress I make (or don’t make). At each lesson I can consistently expect help with last week’s trouble areas in addition to new material — Mary sure likes to press on. Can you blame her? There’s technique to master and songs to learn! :) On her teaching style, Mary is very creative. She customizes her lessons to the individual, and — I really like this about her — she tells me exactly what she wants to cover at the next two or three lessons. This way I know what she’ll teach, and I have the opportunity to discuss what I want to learn (e.g. scales, barre chords, etc.). With decades of guitar study under her belt, she can teach anything. By “teach” I mean make you really understand. She has countless analogies, anecdotes, and demonstrations for helping you learn or improve any technique. She’ll try things until it “clicks” for you. Teaching creativity like Mary’s is an invaluable skill that will undoubtedly help any student she has. To end on a light note, Mary truly is a spectacular musician. Her playing is effortless and always a joy to hear. She makes even the beginning things I’m working on sound musical and fun to play. Mary is a gem of a teacher, and I can’t recommend her enough.
Taking music lessons as an adult, i largely expected to feel the way i did taking lessons as a child. I never would have expected to learn everything from basic theory and technique to being able to compose pieces for multiple instruments within a month. Scott's approach is professional and relatable which is rare in a music teacher of his pedigree. I'am afforded an opportunity to grow as a complete musician with his ability to take daunting musical concepts and make them immediately understandable to a layman. I really do believe that whatever your musical goals are, he is a more than capable teacher. Its also worth noting that whenever i have had any questions throughout the week, he has taken the time to respond at length.
Enjoy the lessons. great teacher.
Jeremy has the credentials and skills to teach music. But above that he is personable. Able to teach new skills or correct old bad habits. I come away from my lesson feeling uplifted and feeling that whatever talent I may have has been affirmed. I also feel that I can do anything because Jeremy believes I can Good with all ages.
I have improved so much in just 8 months of studying with Rachelle! She is fantastic.
Taking guitar lessons with Matt was a great experience. He had extraordinary patience with me as I slowly learned, and had great advice to encourage me through the process. Matt recognized when I wasnt grasping a concept, and used creative strategies to help me along. He is a very talented guitar player, and just as great of a teacher. I would highly recommend him.
I have work with Bryan before he gave me drum lessons very skilled and detailed , easy to understand I would definitely recommend any student that would like to better their skills to Bryan lash
Amber is a very patient and through teacher who is well educated in music and child development. She has a genuine love for music which I'm so happy to see is contagious to my kiddos! I have 2 children with special needs and she is the perfect teacher for them! My kids look forward to their music lessons and can't wait to show her what they practiced all week!
Elaine is very patient with my daughter. My daughter loves to go to piano lessons because Elaine makes learning fun for kids. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She want kids to learn and is tough when she needs to be but wants them to have a good and fun experience as well.
I really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with him.
As a beginner level adult student, I've found that Sergey was a great teacher, giving me lots of useful tips to continue practising in my own time between lessons. Sergey has a lot of enthusiasm and passion for music and the piano which gave me more motivation to learn and continue learning. If my stay in Seattle was not so short I would have continued weekly lessons with him.
Absolutely amazing! I am a total beginner but he instills confidence and makes everything seem so easy and doable! I'm so very happy to have connected with him and I don't hesitate to recommend him to anyone thinking about taking piano lessons! I'm learning and really enjoying this!
