I would like to take this opportunity to thank you Maureen for the piano lessons you have been giving to my mom.. It was so wonderful yesterday my brother and his family came to the house and mom played "Love Me Tender", of course by Elvis Presley.
It was a tear jerking moment.
Mom has had issues with her brain from a car accident, and her piano lessons with you have been the best, best thing for her....from our entire family,
Thank you

Family Music Teacher

We have enjoyed having Maureen as our family’s music teacher. My son started taking flute lessons with Maureen in 2009 and advanced through the levels very quickly. He plays flute in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). He also plays saxophone and tried out and was selected for the Alameda County Honor Band. Maureen worked with him on jazz theory and improvisation and he plays in the jazz band at school. With Maureen, he worked through all six levels of Master Theory and is ready for the college level AP Music Theory at 14 years old. He also completed the MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California) Composer’s Today workbooks and used http://www.noteflight.com to write his own music and participate in composition contests. My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons with Maureen and has been doing a great job. She is playing classical music on violin in school and in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). On piano she is learning to play the blues and jazz, as well as learning theory and composition. Both of my children have been able to successfully participate in the LaHonda Summer Music Camp. We have had a great experience with Maureen throughout the past 5 years and have enjoyed seeing her each week.

Last October my daugther received piano lessons as a gift for her birthday. We started taking lessons with Maureen in November, my daugther, who had just turned 6 was very excited to start classes. Maureen had been very patient with her and caters to her ability and age. Sometimes my daugther gets discouraged, because she feels like she isn't progresing as fast as she would like, but after class she is always excited and ready to come home and continue practicing. Overall, I am pleased with our experience thus far. Maureen is very accommodating and is equipping my daugther with the skills she needs to be a successful piano player.

It's been more than a year of weekly lessons with Mack, and I could not be happier.

Mack is smart, quick, and knows how to handle kids to get results. There's no wheedling, bargaining or begging. It's just ok, do this, no, stop, do it again., No stop do it again, no stop do it again, and then good, that sounds good. I guess I should not be surprised, really, but my 13 yr old son cites this as what he likes best about Mack's instruction - it's all business.

Would I recommend Mack as a teacher for kid's music lessons? Yes, without reservation. Mack is an excellent teacher.

My 11-year-old daughter took lessons from Joe last year. She had never had a lesson before, and didn't even know how to read music. Joe is so patient and friendly, and let me stay through the first lesson to make sure she wasn't too nervous. We opted to go to him because first of all, it's cheaper, and second of all, I don't think my neighbors are as understanding about the noise as his are!

He also has a piano, which came in handy! My daughter started to look forward to it every week, and she progressed faster than we thought. Highly recommend!

Asaf O.

Larkspur, CA

I have been teaching saxophone for 5 years. I believe that the best starting point is classical music, and from there my students can choose whether to continue studying classical or to explore jazz and improvisation. I always tailor my teaching methods to suit you, to make learning as fun and as effective as possible. How you feel is as important as how you sound!

About Asaf

I believe that learning an instrument has to be engaging and fun, first of all. Even the biggest musicians in the world ultimately play because they like to. When I teach, my first priority is to help my students enjoy themselves and find interest in their instrument, and I truly believe that that is where the best music comes from. I studied music at the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance, and I have played clarinet, saxophone and flute in musical theaters across Israel and in numerous musical productions.

Asaf teaches my 14 year old son the clarinet. He is a wonderful teacher. From a parent's point of view, he is incredibly easy to work with in terms of scheduling lessons. He is professional, flexible and very easy to reach via telephone, text and email. My son really looks forward to his lesson each week and WANTS to practice between lessons. He says that Asaf is "very knowledgeable, kind and patient." If, for some reason, we need to miss a lesson, Asaf will check in with us during the week to make sure my son has enough to "keep busy." Asaf really seems to care about his students. In short, I highly recommend Asaf as a music teacher!
