Natalie is a superb teacher! We are thrilled to have found such a compassionate, dedicated, competent teacher. She provides my daughter with excellent lessons of consistency, practice, review of previous lessons and introduction to new material. My daughter is so excited for her lessons because Natalie is so positive and enriching in her teaching style. Natalie exudes happiness, knowledge in the subject matter, and an overall engaging personality. My daughter has made leaps and bounds since starting lessons several months ago. We highly recommend Natalie as a singing teacher!!!

I'm a new student.

I recently started taking piano lessons for the first time at the age of 65. Pierre has been very encouraging and patient. He has also been very professional, and has even been flexible when my schedule has conflicted with our lessons, allowing me to reschedule when necessary. I am enjoying this very much, and that has much to do with Pierre.

Great teacher!

Pierre is by far the best music teacher I've come across. I used several other teachers before Pierre, and none of them were able to take me to the level Pierre has. He's very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient, but best of all, he's a lot of fun. He has the perfect blend of making the lessons challenging and informative, and at the same time enjoyable. His love for music is infectious, and my appreciation for music has grown tremendously since working with him. I can't recommend him enough!

Pierre Rules!

Pierre is the raddest music teacher I've ever had. He's always on time, always prepared, and always ready to have a great time on any instrument. His sense of humor is great and he makes learning even the most difficult songs fun. Since he can play any instrument, you'll always have someone to play along with. He has a deep love for all kinds of music, which is the best quality in a musician, teacher, and drummer. I can't recommend Pierre enough. He's given me the confidence, both musically and personally, to drum in a band, Hearing Damage. THIS DUDE RULES!!!

I act as a resource and a guide, helping my students to find their way to their music goals. *** Lesson Details *** I give my students a laid back, fun-loving atmosphere that offers as many challenges as they are up to. Students will dive into their favorite types of music, learning techniques pulled from their favorite songs. We will laugh together, work through frustration together, and make wonderful music together. I offer my students the opportunity to push themselves toward their passions and give them the tools to succeed. *** Studio Equipment *** I have a room set up in my home with music stands and seating.

Becky is awesome. My job takes away most of my time and because of that I haven't been able to be very regular in attending all sessions. She had been very patient with me and adjusted the pace as needed for a student like me. She is an enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend Becky as the first guitar teacher for students of all ages. Keep rocking Becky!

Becky is a great teacher!

Becky knows exactly what she's doing, is very reliable, and super nice! I enjoy taking lessons with her very much. She understands what kind of music I like and what I want to learn. Taking lessons with Becky is like learning from a great friend. She is easy to learn from and doesn't rush me or go to slow. I definitely recommend her as a teacher:)

Great teacher. Shes fun and friendly. Ok environment. She has a few cats at her home where she teaches and during one lesson I smelled a foul smell and realized the cat was using the litter box right next to where I was sitting. Kind of gross!

The Perfect Teacher for My Son

Learning the violin is proving to be more challenging than my son anticipated. But, Mary's kind, patient instruction is just the encouragement he needs to keep going week by week.
