Jesse is a great instructor with a prestigious background and education in singing and music in general. He knows what he's talking about. He's easy to get along and communicate with, and knows when to push you and how hard to push reach your goals. I had no music background at all and after A few lessons and his teachings, I already know I can go far in the music world. This guy is the real deal
It's hard to find the right piano teacher. But when I found Emily I knew I needed to look no further. I have been taking piano lessons on and off 20 years and within the first few lessons she taught me elements of theory and artistry that I had never seen from a teacher. She is patient, thoughtful and an expert in her craft. She listens and selects pieces that are inspirational to my taste and builds a curriculum to my skill level (intermediate) and pushes me just enough to help me feel confident while still learning new skills.
I am so happy to have found Kris as my daughter's piano teacher! She is 8 years old, had some introductory, minimal piano lessons at a summer camp last year so basically a beginner student. We started once-a-week lessons in January and 4 months later...L loves playing the piano! She plays when she is getting ready for school, she plays when she gets home from school. I have to remind her about the week's lesson but more importantly, she is experimenting and enjoying making music and this is encouraged by Kris as well as the fundamentals. I have seen her confidence grow, be proud of her development, and practice towards a goal. Since the lessons, when she listens to music she sometimes tries to play the chords or mimic playing it while we are in the car. I can tell she is thinking about how she could play songs she enjoys. Wow! Kris is patient, focused on the student, provides clear guidance and tailors the lessons to her level. For example, if she needs more time to practice a newer concept, he understands this. He also challenges L to stretch her ability a bit each week which is perfect for her personality. He has a calm, positive, and encouraging presence. I am so appreciative of his dependability and flexibility to make up a lesson the two times we weren't able to make our scheduled lesson due to scheduled events. It's clear he cares about the consistency of her lessons/practice and is reasonable about the occasional scheduling hiccups in families. I highly recommend Kris!
Great guitar teacher, not only gives great guitar lessons but also gives awesome insight on music and understanding it at a more complex level.
My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studios a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!
I've been taking lessons on and off for years and Kyle is by far the best teacher I've had. Kyle is a great listener, has endless knowledge, and can tailor your lessons to any style of music you want to learn.
When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.
I had guitar lessons with Aaron for several years, and I highly recommend him as a teacher. Hes incredibly knowledgeable and very encouraging; he motivates you to do your best and takes a more creative, interesting approach to teach music (for example, I learned a lot about musical improvisation and composition, in addition to classical and spanish guitar techniques). He is one of the best teachers I have ever hadif you take lessons with him and are reasonably motivated, he will absolutely help you succeed in your musical goals.
I've been playing music with Rory for close to a year now. While I've never taken lessons from him, as a fellow band mate I continue to learn while playing with him. Besides being an exceptional player, he also exhibits a calm and welcoming demeanor that every student will appreciate.
I took piano lessons from Geoff 2 years ago and unfortunately due to financial issues had to quit. For the months that I was able to be taught by him, I loved how patient he was with me as well as the materials he gave me. I would definitely return to him if I was able to do so in the future
I took lessons from Alex for several months and benefited greatly from the time I spent working with him. Unlike many teachers out there, he can both play and teach -- this is pretty rare in my experience. While I wasn't necessarily looking for someone who could listen to songs and tell me how to play them, on the occasions I asked him to do this I was blown away by how quickly and accurately he could do it. Alex is also a cool guy and brings an interesting perspective to music instruction -- we had many a philosophical discussion around the finer points of music and how it affects us as people. Give him a try -- you won't regret it!
Found Neil and the Montavilla Guitar Studio through a neighborhood Facebook page. He has been giving our 8 year old daughter private guitar lessons for 3 months now, with great patience and so many fun, innovative teaching techniques! His studio/teaching space is cozy and welcoming, he clearly enjoys teaching lessons, and has a natural knack for working with children (which is no small feat). We have been incredibly pleased with the caliber of teacher we've found in Neil. (If you are just beginning lessons - he also offers a complimentary "find a guitar" session where he meets you at a local guitar shop to pick an instrument that'll work well. Great way get a newbie musician excited about what's to come!)
'Ky is a knowledgeable and experienced teacher and musician. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer, he has a strong grasp of teaching techniques that make playing string instruments achievable to a wide range of students, from the very beginner to the more advanced. His ability to sing is also helpful, as he teaches his students to play by ear, and to learn how to improvise from songs they hear. I really enjoyed learning the guitar and taking singing lessons from him. He is focused, passionate, and makes playing and practicing music fun! I highly recommend him as a teacher.' Dave Polston
Rachel really knows her craft, and is great at teaching it! I've taken lessons before, been in choirs for years, and am really impressed with her knowledge around music and singing - in particular the breathing process and how crucial it is to improving your voice. I would recommend her to anyone.
JD has been wonderful with our seven year-old, Dylan, who has studied with him for the last year. JD has been clear and patient with Dylan, while maintaining high expectations that encourages Dylan to perform. He explains musical concepts in terms a child can understand. Thanks to JD, Dylan has not only learned the elements of music theory but also important practice and performance skills. And it is wonderful that he comes to the house, making our hectic schedules just a little more manageable! We highly recommend him.
Lindsay provides piano instruction to our kids - 8 and 10 years old. They enjoy playing the songs that are part of the lessons and they get on the piano every day to just tinker and come up with their own music. We are amazed at what the kids can play after a year of instruction. They really like Lindsay - she's very personable, patient, flexible, and knowledgeable. She is always open to teaching them a song they request and making it accessible to their level.
Nick is knowledgable and talented -- and an excellent teacher.
Bryan was prompt, thorough, patient and very good with my 10-yr old's first sax lesson.

Many musicians want to perform full time, and often think of teaching as a way to make ends meet. As much as I love performing many styles of music, I also find teaching to be a vital part of my life as a musician. As an academically trained musician, I have had many teachers over the years. As much as I enjoy teaching, I also believe that it is my duty to share as much of my knowledge as possible with other musicians.
