Very understanding teacher. My 13 year old thinks he is awesome. He said he's going to help my son learn to play Star Wars.

Was very impressed with Peter's methods, demeanor, patience with my 9 year-old daughter, who is a beginner at piano. She had some experience at reading music, and Peter was adept at recognizing this and 'pushing the envelope' a bit with her and she responded enthusiastically. She left every lesson with a smile on her face.

I am excited to write a review for our awesome violin instructor~! Our little pre-teen 10 year old daughter took lessons prior Miss Emily for about 6 months but had no motivation to practice and so there was no progress. However, since we met Miss Emily, our daughter has been so motivated! Only after her first lesson, she understood how to read notes, she was engaged, and must've picked up her violin to practice at least 3 times a day for a good 20-30 minutes on her own (under no request by Miss Emily)! I believe it is because Miss Emily is very passionate about her teaching and is very encouraging towards her students. She doesn't make violin lessons a chore, rather an amazing experience!

Miss Emily is very knowledgeable and an amazing and very professional instructor! She patiently goes step by step to make sure all the basis for a firm foundation in music is there and then thoroughly goes to all the steps to keep it simple in learning! She builds great rapport and brings her personal experience to make her more relatable! I would highly recommend Miss. Emily as an instructor!

I have been taking guitar lessons with Isabel for about 7 months now and she is an amazing teacher. She is very energetic, funny and is easy to get along with. Within my first 2 months of playing guitar I was able to play Led Zeppelin's Stairway To Heaven and now I can play more music like AC/DC's Back In Black and Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit. I like taking lessons from Isabel because she teaches me the music that I am interested in (rock) and makes it fun. I would recommend her to anyone looking to take lessons.
