As a singer, you need a strong foundation to build up to having a great technique to sing well and I feel like Michelle definitely provides a strong bridge of support to help aspiring singers - no matter their level -

Michelle is a patient, kind, and knowledgeable teacher. I didn't have any prior experience in singing or music before seeing her. Michelle was my first-ever singing teacher and I loved my learning process with her! Each lesson my voice has improved and we record every lesson so it's easy to practice when I don't have a lesson.

I definitely recommend her to anybody who is looking for a vocal teacher! She is truly one of a kind :-)

Michelle is a great teacher! She really focuses on expanding range and hitting the right notes and tones. I have heard a difference in my daughters voice, in just a couple of months. Michelle is not only good, but she is patient and keeps my daughter interested and focused.

Classical piano is a subject I have taught for over twenty (20) years. As a classically-trained pianist, it has been my main area of focus throughout my teaching and performing careers. If you wish to focus on classical piano, we will cover in-depth music theory during our classes, which is a required component for success in classical piano.

*Please Note*
Online-only piano classes are only available to students who have prior experience. I do not recommend complete beginners to start fully online, as there are beginners' nuances that are much better addressed in-person!

Ms. Ozawa,
Is a wonderful teacher. She observes and evaluates a student's skills and then discusses with you areas that need improvement. She teachers students how to use breathing and piano together. Overall I am so happy I found her and was able to learn all the basic from her. I have been to a few other teachers in the past and did not get from them what she taught me. She taught me how to understand music better and how appreciate such a wonderful art.
Holly W.
My first lesson went well. Tomoko is very patient. Even in one lesson, I felt I learned a lot. She finds out what level you're at to save time and plays to your interests. I look forward to more lessons.

Bring your elderly loved one or your child with special needs for music therapy sessions in which we'll actively make music -- singing, playing rhythm instruments, and moving -- in ways appropriate to age and capabilities. The power of music and its impact on the body/mind works its calming, life-affirming magic.

During these sessions, parents or caregivers can relax in my restful, art-filled living room with a view through glass doors into my teaching studio. Alternatively, you are welcome to participate with us!

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
