Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.
Martin
DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.
Ian
Deanna was great! Nice, patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I learned basic technique which already has me feeling more comfortable. I'm looking forward to progressing and confident I've made the right choice.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Ervin Hoffman
Jon was very patient with me as a beginner with never having learned how to read music before or play any instruments. I learned a lot which gave me confidence to continue with my lessons.
Thomas
When I look back on my education, very few things really stick out. However, I will never forget those amazing teachers that bring a subject to life and change the way you think, forever. Jon is one of those teachers. He is encouraging, patient, informative, and helps you grow as a musician. I started as a beginner with a dream to play the piano. Even though I am still learning, that dream is now a reality and I can really play! If you have an opportunity to study with Jon, I highly suggest you take it. He changed my life and I'm sure he could change yours.

"I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to after taking piano lessons with Eric for a few months. I'm an adult-learner, and was previously considering giving up piano due to a lack of progress. Eric's focused teaching style and enthusiasm for the instrument has re-ignited my interest in piano, while I can see (hear) tangible improvement in my playing with each lesson.

I'd have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Eric to students of all levels."

"Ben G. has had 5 lessons with my sons an 11year old & a 9 year old. He observed their personalities while taking notice where their abilities were on the piano. Which allowed Ben to quickly understand how to plan his lessons to cater to each boy. My boys are enjoying lessons from Ben. They like watching him play their music in an entertaining way to show them how different a song can sound. Which keeps them interested in playing the piano. He is kind and attentive and makes learning fun. We appreciate the lessons Ben is creating for our sons."
