I just started lessons with Anna-Lisa. She was able to diagnose my weakness,adjust my posture,give me different execerises to work on, help me to improve my tone,release tension and sing higher notes,woohoo!
I'm so glad that I found her,thanks Anna-Lisa, I can't wait for my next lesson with you!"
Cynthia is a very fun teacher and both my kids are enjoying their lessons. One is a beginner and one is experienced. Cynthia is attentive to both needs. Thanks Cynthia for such a good experience."
My younger brother and I both have taken lessons through Bill for quite some time now.
Bill has been fantastic, and can accomodate to players of all levels. I've been playing for years, and Bill is able to provide practice materials relevant to my musical interests, appropriately scaling up the difficulty of what we're working on. Ranging from famous straight-ahead jazz solos, to tricky classical etudes, I'm happy to know my overall musical technique, repertoire, and general skill will continue to grow at the pace right for me.
My younger brother is taking some more beginner clarinet lessons, and couldn't agree more. He always looks forward to lesson day, seeing what new notes and scales he'll get to play through!"
