Michael is a truly excellent instructor for beginners. I really enjoy his approach to teaching theory and practical skills on the instrument. Definitely worth it.

Puts a student at ease!

When I started lessons with Michael, I was experienced on one brass instrument and a beginner on another one. He was able to show me some useful things about the instrument I was new on, and help me keep going on the one I was already familiar with.

One thing that really stood out for me: I've always been too embarrassed to improvise musically, especially in front of anyone, but Michael got me improvising--and enjoying it!--during our very first lesson. I was impressed!

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!

Anne cares about her students

Anne is an awesome vocal instructor. She focused on exactly what I needed to work on and helped me stay focused every time I sang. My friends have noticed a significant improvement in my singing in such a short time thanks to Anne's instruction. Thank you Anne!
Marie-France M. Hyde Park, MA

About Marie-France

I have taught piano and voice most of my adult life. Early on I learned the need to adapt my teaching style to the uniqueness of each student, especially those whose perceptions differ widely from the general populace. I love what I do, helping each student discover and nurture their abilities, no matter what age the student may be.

The Holistic Piano method is especially effective with my Autism-spectrum students, a segment of the population I find particularly rewarding to teach.

The following is a quote from ex-student Karena Krull, author of "Drama Made Easy", and "Rummy Roots."

“Her greatest strength is her ability to find the right direction for each individual. This ability to adapt to the student's needs lends to individual success ...

She's really good. I am just a beginner and I am making progress thanks to Marie-France. She gives out homework so you can improve and she tailors each lesson to the needs of that student. I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested in pursuing music.

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.
