Hristo is the most inspirational teacher I've every had the pleasure to learn from. He shares his talent in a way that I look forward to every lesson. His patience and positive reinforcement encourages me to keep practicing. He selects the appropriate music for my level and teaches all genres. Thank you for working with me every week. I hope I get to work with him for as long as I can until he becomes too famous to continue teaching us.

Great Instructor

I've been taking lessons from Hristo for a couple of months now. He is friendly, affable, and extremely patient. I enjoy our lessons, and have learned quite a bit in the short time we have been working together.

About Chloe

Hi there! I am finishing up my BM at San Jose State University, and have been teaching voice and piano lessons for 4 years. I have over 13 years of experience in music, musical theater, and singing, and 19 years of piano training. My most exciting accomplishment to date is my artist residency with Opera San Jose for the 2014/2015 season. Although my main passion is opera performance I absolutely LOVE to teach as well! I can teach voice to students of all ages and in all styles, and also teach beginning to intermediate piano for all ages. --Voice Lessons-- I usually like to split the lessons in half: the first half on technique (breathing exercises, posture, body alignment, warm-ups, vowel clarity) and the second half on repertory. I can teach my students to sing in Italian,

Chloe has worked out better than we had hoped or expected. She is teaching our mid-elementary aged children and they love her. The children are excited about the lessons, look forward to seeing her, and they enjoy practicing their lessons. If you want a great teacher that can motivate in a positive manner I would suggest Chloe.

A delightful professional!

Tom works with my 88 year old mom. Learning the piano at her age is a challenge! My mom tends to be hard on herself and doesn't think she plays well. Tom has re-kindled her joy of music, increased her confidence and pushed her just enough to keep it a challenge. I'm very grateful for his work with her!

PERFECT MATCH FOR MY 5 y/o!!!

Kat works very well with little ones. She was very relaxed from the very first visit which definitely made it even easier on my 5 y/o daughter. During our last lesson my daughter had the case of the "sillies". Kat's tone remained the same & never once showed any signs of frustration. She was and is absolutely wonderful with her! Kat has an amazing voice & my daughter cant stop talking about her & cant wait for her lessons. We definitely made the perfect choice!

Excellent Voice Teacher for My 8 Year Old Daughter

Kat has been an excellent voice instructor for my 8 year old daughter. She is kind and patient, yet has a buoyant energy that engages my daughter in a way the some teachers cannot. The techniques and skills she is imparting to my daughter are invaluable. I highly recommend Kat for anyone (of any age too!) looking for high quality voice lessons.

About john

I am an experienced instructor focused on beginning students of any age. It is never too late to learn the violin. I use the Shinozaki method as the primary textbook with Suzuki and Miller as supplemental texts. Students will be introduced to the history and structure of the violin and will learn how to read music, accurate intonation, identifying notes by ear, correct posture, proper bow holding, breathing and relaxation techniques. Methods I've developed over the years will help beginners master techniques that normally take years to develop and will allow students to quickly build up confidence and overcome psychological barriers. Here is a recommendation written for me by a former student: I am pleased to write a letter recommending Mr. John L. as an excellent violin ...
