I chose Lonze to be my online piano teacher and i chose right!! If you are looking for a teacher who has a love for music and is patient with those who are learning, Lonze is your person.

I am so excited that I found Lisa. As a senior student returning to clarinet after 46 years, I wanted to makes sure that I start with the basics so that I don't get into any bad habits. Everything Lisa covered and suggested in my first lesson was on point with everything I've been reading. I am confident that I found the right teacher at the right time.

Liza has been a wonderful teacher for my fifth grade daughter. Izzie is inspired to practice while away with encouragement from Liza’s instructions!

I love working with brand new beginners all the way seasoned players who might be prepping for music college. I like to keep an fun atmosphere around the lesson and try to find out what drives my students.

We'll work through pieces from school and expand into topics such as improvisation, reading, music theory, and finding inspiration from great players. I have a jazz background, and love working with aspiring jazz musicians as well.

Steve has been great. We had to switch to online due to social distancing, and it has worked out just fine. He even gave us the first online lesson free to see if it we wanted to continue with it. He is a natural at communicating with kids, keeps it very fun, and has been great at getting our 8 year old started with piano.

Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

"Gleb has deep understanding of music theory and whats arguably more important - he knows how to convey this knowledge in a form that fits personality of a student.
He reveals strong and strengthens weak sides in a laid back, stress-free fashion. Lessons are fun and results are astonishing. Looking forward to spend more time with him."

"excellent instructor and a wonderful person

I have been taking music lessons with Daniel since April of 2013 and it has been a great learning experience.

I had no musical background and I started learning Saxophone with Daniel and 7 months later, I am able to play popular songs that he chooses to fit best for enhancing learning curve. He does a great job with reinforcing correct habits from the very beginning and has been very encouraging and has highlighted improvement as we go from class to class. As music learning can be frustratingly slow, the feedback and reassurance he provides definitely helps in keep going back for more.

I wanted to learn guitar and piano with him as well, he encouraged to learn only Piano (for enhancing learning curve for musical theory concepts) and hold guitar for later. Which speaks about how he is genuinely concerned about your learning of music with sound reasoning. So now I take guitar and Piano lessons with him. He is very patient, polite and professional. He is great with students of all ages and easily modifies teaching style as per student needs.

Besides all that he is a great person to talk to. Numerous times we have had great discussions about things outside music.

I would highly recommend Daniel for music lessons to everyone."

"Andrew was recommended to us by the BYU music faculty, when I contacted them to see who might be a good private instructor for my teenage daughter (who has a background in other instruments but wanted to learn more with sax than her band teacher could provide in a classroom setting). Andrew has always been very knowledgeable, extremely personable, and willing to match our needs with his expertise. When we went to a local music store to get some additional accessories, one of his peers assisted us--and he described Andrew as "insanely talented" on the sax. I would fully recommend him!"

"Frixos is a great instructor and a musician. It took me a while to find him. I think I've listen to every instuctor's video on this site before I made my choice. What made me chose him, as my teacher, was his passionate and creative style of playing. I believe a sax sound without emotion is a waste of this instrument. Unfortunately, very many musicians have a great technique but their music doesn't have an emotional/passionate story behind it. Well, Frixos had that and it helped me make my decision. As an instructor, he goes an extra mile to make sure I have all the support I need and beyond. He is thorough, responsible, and so much fun to work with!!! What he charges for the quality of service he provides is a "joke". So my recommendation to those who look for a teacher: take this great opportunity, let HIM teach you, and you won't regret!!! :)
P.S. I have no doubts that for as long as he is my instructor, I WILL learn how to play and be very good at it!
