Pamela is a teacher.

Pamela was very patient with my young daughter. She taught her the beginning stages of reading music and her voice became clearer and louder because of the confidence she gained during her sessions. I would recommend Pamela as a singing instructor for any age but she was so patient and encouraging for my young daughter. We loved it.

Andrew has been teaching my son music lessons since July 2013, and we have been very pleased. He is always on time, communicates well, and is able to be flexible when our schedule is not 100% predictable.

My son was 7 when he began the guitar and after just over a year, we decided that it would be best to switch to the piano. Practicing the guitar was always a struggle. Andrew took this change from guitar to piano in stride and has enough piano skills to help my son learn all of the things that are important in music: reading, learning rhythm, etc. I have seen him teach younger students and I appreciate that he can adapt his teaching approach to match the age, ability and interest of the learner.

My son seems intrinsically motivated to learn the piano and practice. But even as he plodded away strumming his electric guitar unenthusiastically, Andrew always found a way to engage him. One of the more memorable techniques Andrew uses is to write out the music for the songs my son wants to learn. At that moment, it was a Pokémon song. I thought it was rather genius. Even though my son barely practiced, he wanted to learn that song.

By means of the piano, Andrew is teaching my son music, not just how to play songs on the piano. I am amazed at the progress he has made from not being able to reproduce rhythms to now being able to do so.

It is clear that Andrew enjoys teaching. He is personable and polite. I have referred him to family and friends and would not hesitate to hire him for drums, guitar and beginning piano.

Great Teacher!

Andrew Brown is a great teacher! I didn't have any music experience when I signed up for my first class, but he was extremely patient and despite a lack of natural rhythm I learned a lot in every session. Most lessons would incorporate exercises, learning a new beat or technique, learning a song by reading music and learning a song by listening to it. I was never bored during one of his classes as the material was always challenging enough to keep my focus, but not too hard to make me feel frustrated.

I would recommend Andrew Brown to anyone who wants to learn the drums! He's a great teacher and a really nice person!

Drum
Highly recommended!

Andrew is an outstanding drum teacher. I took lessons from him for about two years when he was based in Los Angeles. He is well-versed in a variety of teaching styles and I was always amazed by his skill whenever he improvised on the drum set. His ability to break complicated sequences into more digestible pieces was immensely helpful and was invaluable when tackling more challenging beats. He is also an exceptionally patient and encouraging teacher.

He is very receptive to teaching students what they are interested in learning. One of the parts of my lessons I looked forward to was applying what I had learned that class by playing along to some of my favorite songs.

Andrew was very flexible and willing to accomodate my ever-changing schedule. Really personable and funny, too!

I was bummed to hear he was moving to the east coast. If he were still in LA, I would absolutely still be taking lessons from him!

Dayle is a great teacher! She is very patient with my daughter who takes saxophone lessons, and works at a great pace. My daughter sees how much she has improved since starting private lessons with Dayle, and this makes her more confident in her playing ability. The lessons are also fun, but she learns a lot as well. I am very happy we found Dayle!

Matthew S. Levittown, PA

About Matthew

I started playing trumpet in grade school and was in the marching band the first year of high school. I then switched to playing upright bass in the orchestra. This led to me being a part of the jazz band and playing instrumentals for school musicals. Upon graduation time, I received the gold medal for music performance in strings. I was also an AP music theory student. After, I pursued a bachelor's degree in music and took education courses. I have tutored music theory and given instrument lessons, but they were always self employed or from the university. I wish to help others make music an enjoying part of their lives, as it is in mine. *** Lesson Details *** For lessons, I like to get a feel of the student's current abilities and then start from there. I'm progressive in my ...

Highly engaging music teacher for children

Amanda R has been coming to my home to teach my daughters, ages 6 and 8, piano and music theory (reading music, etc) for several months now. We are very pleased with her. After a series of private and group lessons with other highly qualified teachers, we finally found all we were looking for with Amanda. She is well-spoken, well-educated and very professional both in person and in email or phone communication. She engages the children from the first moment and is very patient with them. They trust her and enjoy working with her. Amanda was able to quickly see what the girls already knew and where their knowledge had gaps, and to tailor lessons to their abilities and interests. The practice she assigns during the week is very reasonable/not overwhelming. the girls show a very good improvement in their music skills! I would recommend Amanda to any family looking for a music teacher for their children. She clearly has a passion and gift for working with kids!
