Pleasant Surprise

I currently have my daughter, age 8, enrolled in singing lessons with Ben. Previously, we had her starting lessons with the most popular teacher on this site, Lisa, with the highest number of reviews and were disappointed. She didn't seem to really invest in my daughters training. It seemed like a factory mill - student in, student out, next student in. I pulled her out after 5 lessons and went with Ben. It soon dawned on me that we had made a very good choice. Ben teaches the fundamentals first so that your child has a strong toolkit and foundation to succeed, which we weren't really getting from the previous instructor. He is very professional and takes what he does seriously and has made me feel that he cares about my daughter's progress. Additionally, he is affable and my daughter enjoys her lessons with him.

Professional, skilled instructor who has deep knowledge in music theory

I am a beginner in piano and have taken piano lesson from Ben for 2 months. Ben is a very professional instructor who has both the technical skills and a deep knowledge of musical theory. I learned not just the techniques for improving my piano performance skills, but also some intriguing music theory behind the pieces. The lessons are also well organized and it felt the hour goes by fairly swiftly.

Ben takes student's learning serious but still maintains a friendly and easy-going manner. The lessons usually provided at a musical instrument shop that is very convenient and cozy. Overall I am very satisfied with my experience.

Amazing technical knowledge...excellent instructor...very talented

From the first lesson, I could tell from Ben's singing and piano abilities that he was very talented with a lot of experience in music&music instruction. He is very clear with his instruction, extremely professional so it's so cool how down to earth he is. He even spent outside time helping me find a few things that would help advance my vocal abilities quicker. I really appreciate his time and hard work. Be advised: This man is SERIOUS about music (but that's a good thing)...

Very Encoluraging

Susan is so encouraging & gets excited because I'm excited to learn to play the piano. She's very patient with me...which is a huge plus! She also has a way of breaking the music language down so that I can relate to it. It's sort of like word association. That works!

helpful and flexible

Susan is a wonderful instructor. She was flexible with my crazy schedule. She gave me enough work to not get boerd between lessons but not to much work. I always look forward to my lessons.

JACK IS TERRIFIC!

I wish we had found Jack years ago. We hired Jack specifically to help my daughter prepare for an audition. The audition was a success! Jack's approach to teaching is no nonsense and precise, but he has a warm and gentle way about him that motivated my daughter in a way that others haven't. Aside from his teaching ability, I was pleasantly surprised with Jack's sense of urgency and flexibility in responding to special scheduling needs. This is the first time I have been inspired to write an on-line testimony. I hope it helps other students discover Jack's tutoring.

Deserves 6 stars

If I looked for a million years I could not have found a better instructor than Jack. He is a peach. I am an older student with Osteoarthritis and I'm hoping that violin will both help avoid Altzheimer's and exercise and stretch the fingers. Jack is sympathetic to my needs and is helping in any way possible. I always look forward to Jack and his sunny personality and expertise. I'm sure that I have reached the epitome of "difficult students", but Jack is always patient and pleasant. He is a true professional in every sense.

Jack is a great teacher! He teaches well and professionally. He picked out the right text books for the lesson which I think very importance. My girls piano skills improve significantly. He also makes it fun to learn so the girls love it. Highly recommend him to everyone.

Classical Guitar
He has illuminated my understanding for the guitar

James has been my guitar teacher for four years and has illuminated my understanding for the guitar and classical music. His love of the guitar and music is expressed in his generosity in sharing and teaching. He has a gift of patience that conveys his enjoyment of playing and listening to music, even in it's most beginning expression. One never experiences disapproval from James, the attitude is always toward learning to improve.

Sincerely
George Vaughan

Guitar
A positive, professional teacher.

James,

"I signed up for guitar 101 at Clark College. I found James to be a fine teacher, since he expected me, as a student, to reach beyond my abilities and; yes, compose a musical encore. As a private instructor, I find him to be tactful, as he continues to reward me with ever more complex musical sheets. He is always working with me to reach my specific goals. I could take lessons closer to my home; but continue to visit Clark College, because James has the ability to not only play great guitar, but to teach what he plays. The other Martha"
