I've been having piano lessons with Jan for about an year and my daughter started a month ago. My 6 years old daughter did not want to take piano lessons, but after she agreed to try and did the first two lessons, she wanted to continue and I give Jan all the credit for that. Jan is a great teacher - very patient, very attentive, has a wide knowledge of music theory and piano teaching methods and always finds a creative way to help me overcome a hurdle that I've encountered. She's also a nice person to be around and makes piano lessons so much fun, something to be excited about.

I took piano lessons with Jan before I moved and she was wonderful! She's so enthusiastic about what she does. You can really tell that her goal in being a piano teacher is to spread the joy of music. She's a great listener and is very down to earth. If I ever go back to Seattle, I'd definitely take lessons with her again.

Tara Tinsley is extremely talented! She also has the upmost patience while teaching. I am a beginner at the guitar, and if there was a word to describe "less a than beginner," that would be me. She went at my own pace because obviously I am very slow to switch between chords. I have taken a couple lessons so far and as long as I practice what she teaches at home I know I will be able to play songs in no time. I would recommend her to anybody for guitar lessons. Her office is in a great, historic building in downtown Tacoma. It is a professional office building with free street parking close by (which is almost impossible to find downtown). The lobby has seating for students and/or parents to wait. For parents that don't want to wait inside, there is a coffee and wine bar a block away! If anyone is skeptical she has music on YouTube and Spotify. Check it out and I know you will be convinced to learn from her!

Started guitar lessons a couple of months ago and couldn't be happier. I was self taught and played by ear. Didn't feel I had time for lessons. But, I was missing a lot of the fundamentals. The lessons have started to fill in the gaps and I'm learning a lot faster than before. I wish I started these lessons a couple of years ago. And way too easy taking these lessons at my place. Highly recommended!

I was sent Brad Mar for my piano lessons, and he's AMAZING. Great guy, lets the lessons flow at a natural pace, and he goes above and beyond getting learning material into your hands. This has been worth every penny and I can't stress enough how valuable this has been for my musicianship. You all rock!

Mrs. Lauri is a perfect teacher-student match for our daughter, who is eight and just starting piano. With two piano performance degrees in the family, but no time to teach, we were looking for just the right mix of solid teaching technique, skill, and personality match. We also wanted to find a teacher who would be willing to keep us in the process and utilize the unique situation of knowledgeable parental help at home. Mrs. Lauri has been an excellent choice, and our daughter loves going to piano lessons! We are extremely pleased with our daughter's progress, and highly recommend Lauri Mitchell.

"Ms. Lauri, may I give you a hug? I just love my lessons with you!" "Ms. Lauri, I like playing piano more and more every day!" Just two recent quotes from my 9-year-old daughter, who is in her second year of piano lessons with Lauri Mitchell. Yes, Lauri's rates are reasonable. Yes, she's flexible and accommodating. Yes, she's a knowledgeable and patient teacher. ...But don't my daughter's quotes just say it all? I highly recommend Lauri Mitchell!

Lauri is a fantastic teacher. She has taught my daughter since Kindergarten and taken her from not knowing a single note to Carol of the Bells at 8 years old. She has lots of patience and a well thought out reward system to keep the kids motivated. My daughter won't take piano lessons if Lauri is not her teacher. Mary A.

Elaine has been teaching 3 of my children piano lessons for 3 years now. She has since added a 4th. She is patient and encouraging yet firm. She makes sure they strive to do their best and teaches strong technique. She also include improv, ear training, and chords. Rather than just sticking to the books, Elaine is constantly coming up with fun, creative ways to reinforce the theory the kids are learning.

Minami taught piano to my 5-year old for about a year. I wasn't sure if my daughter was actually capable of learning much about music yet, but Minami did a great job getting her to the point of doing a little recital of a simple song, and I could tell there that my child had learned a fair amount and also had a good time doing it. Ability to teach in Japanese was also a plus for us. By default I think Minami doesn't push kids as young as that too hard. We didn't push our daughter to practice much between lessons and Minami didn't push for that either. But I think she can give students more strict assignments to practice if the parents so desire.

Minami is a pro when it comes to teaching piano. She has impressed us with her knowledge, skill and professionalism. We love that she teaches using methods from classic to contemporary. My children are 6 and 8 and learning much more than just how to play an instrument. They are learning how to write music, use technology to enhance music and more. They love to practice now that Minami is their teacher and do so without being asked. I highly recommend Minami.

Minami has provided vocal and piano lessons for our tween daughter for several months. My daughter loves the instruction that Minami gives- a great combo of fun and learning. She is always positive and considerate with her feedback to the student while producing the results needed. I love the convenience of her home lessons as well as her prompt communication.

My daughter has only had two lessons with Aaron, so I do not have a long term relationship to base my review on. However, I can say that Aaron was very prompt at returning my emails and phone calls . Very professional in how he approached making financial arrangements and scheduling our lessons. He provided references for me to check with. He offered a complementary initial lesson. And perhaps most important, when I pick up my daughter from her lesson she has a smile on her face and says Aaron is very nice.

Aaron is a great teacher. He explains the theory well, provides good feedback for improvement. He encourages practice outside the class providing multiple resources to facilitate this. He is also flexible in accommodating various types of teaching, going step by step vs learning through a song.

I have been taking piano lessons with Michael since October. Prior to studying with Michael I took lessons from another teacher for about 6 months. In the short time I have been working with Michael I have learned far more than I did during my whole time taking lessons with my other teacher. Micheal's approach to teaching is comprehensive and fun and is rooted in understanding the essence of the piano itself and music theory. He is very passionate about music and really enjoys teaching. He teaches with methods that are outside of traditional piano books and uses materials that build upon each weeks lessons. I have been very impressed with how much I have learned in such a short time. Michael is a very patient instructor and learning from him has been an extremely fun and exciting experience. He truly cares that his students are learning and comprehending the material and is very in tune with how each person learns. If you are looking to learn and understand piano and music in general, I would encourage anyone to hire Michael.

Michael is a great teacher! I'm currently taking piano lessons from him and I am very satisfied. His approach is different from other teachers I had looked into and he's more affordable and flexible with scheduling your lessons! His approach with teaching music theory was a surprise to me but it has proven to be a very successful way to start teaching a begginer the piano. No need to buy several lessons in advance and he works at your pace! Highly recommended this teacher.

Our 10 year daughter has been under Shireen's tutelage for almost two years, and is already becoming a fine pianist. She is also turning into a very good vocalist! Shireen has never been anything but positive, helpful, and understanding. She is always very thoughtful in the way she teaches. She explains everything, and why it is important, making it easy for the child to understand WHY. She expects the same courtesy, punctuality, and attendance from her students, that she herself gives 100% of the time. We couldn't be happier with the choice we have made for our daughter's piano and voice lessons. Highly recommend!!

It was great experience for my boy and girl with Mariya to learn piano. Both my boy and girl started to learn piano from seven years old. Although my boy stopped piano after 7 years with her due to more commitment on his band groups, years of piano playing with Mariya laid very solid foundation for him so he could successfully play All state band almost every year, out of state Jazz festivals, as well as Macy’s Great American Matching Band Thanksgiving performance at New York. My girl loves Mariya even more and always looking forward the piano lesson each week. It was very critical for her that Mariya always shared difference pieces of music and selected the best fit on both skill level and understanding level. Without Mariya’s professional teaching, she would not receive 1st place on Bach festival, and 3rd place on Russian music festival. Although she is taking a break right now due to overwhelm homework load, she always feels blessed to have Mariya as her teacher and would love to go back to piano class whenever time is available. If you want your kids to have a great start on his/her music journey, Mariya is a right choice.

Mariya was my piano teacher when I was a kid--from ages 8-18. I loved my piano lessons so much, I only stopped when I graduated from high school and moved away. I really can't speak highly enough of her skills as a teacher and a musician, or her warmth and kindness as a person. I learned so much about the piano and music in general, and I still play almost 15 years later. Thanks to Mariya I have this lovely lifelong hobby. We keep in touch a bit and I'm so pleased to know that Mariya is still teaching piano. I remember her as my favorite teacher of any subject and her lessons as the high point of my school years. She is truly a gem!
