Not only is Jimi a gifted musician, but he is a passionate teacher. It is evident how much he enjoys teaching through his exuberance and encouragement. We feel very fortunate to have found him. Our daughter is making huge strides in learning the saxophone, thanks to his positive reinforcement and love of the instrument.

A great experience with a skilled instructor

Above all else, Jimi knows what he's doing. His advice is exactly what I needed to improve me use of my voice. His knowledge of the human voice and various instructional methods is both broad and deep, and he draws on it effectively to give effective personalized advice.

Jimi is an endless wellspring of information and advice, and sometimes I want to do more singing and less listening. But when I do get to sing, I always find that the listening has paid off -- I'm improving fast, and it's because of his good teaching.

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.

Go for it!

Being very experienced with teaching to both children and adults of all backgrounds and ambitions, Anne is a very skilled and smart teacher. Her pedagogy has obviously been refined over many years and is clever and efficient yet easy-going and painless. She mixes theory and more academic learning with ear-training, relying as well on your more natural instincts, in order to equip you with the varied skills of a complete musician. She really tailors the teaching to your specific goals and level, as well. All this in a very gentle, easy and genuinely caring way. And always with a smile. Just go for it!
Aleksandra P. Watertown, MA

About Aleksandra

I am a Berklee graduate with over a decade of experience performing, composing, and teaching. Music has shaped my life, and I would love to see how it can shape yours. There is no limit to the profound joy of learning an instrument and expressing ones self through it, and you are never to young or to old to start! Everyone has different musical tastes, and strengths and weaknesses. My goal is to bring out your inner excellence by teaching to your learning style, and showing you how to play the music that YOU are passionate about. I am not interested in force feeding you songs or styles of music that you are not interested in. I strive to keep my students constantly motivated and enthused each lesson.

So many teachers make you take lessons from scratch to see how much you have learned and go over the material again with you to fix errors. It is so boring for me!!! I hate that. I'm sure it works for some people. I like to play my hardest song and then go from there instead! He did no for met. He caught on right away, exactly where I needed help. I didn't waste hours and hours of tedious lessons that I would quit rather than have to do that same material again! Also, he breaks things down that are very complicated, to easy to understand chunks and bits to make it easy.
