Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.

I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

I have loved learning and teaching guitar for over a decade. I have a really great method that will string you through the lessons you need to get you on your feet!

About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off. I

From the way I sit to my hand position, Mr. Calvin has patiently guiding me to the right direction. My piano playing has been gradually improving in the last few months- thanks to Mr. Calvin.

Mr. Lo is great.
He makes my daughter play through a piece slowly without mistake first.
And then he will sing along and she can play in a steady tempo.

My daughter has a great time with Mr. Lo for three years already, and we are looking forward for another three years with him.
August 22, 2017
In the beginning I choose Mr. Calvin because he is really close to my home.
And it turns out that he is really nice and clear with his instruction.
My son enjoys learning piano with Mr. Calvin.

Gregory T.


Bgcheck Background Checked

I make drumming understandable to someone who has not yet learned the craft. I will give you a series of tests to see what level your natural skill for rhythm is at.

We will work on getting you playing beats from day one. Whatever music you're into we will work on getting you playing that type of music. In addition, I will teach a break down of the basics and what has worked best for me.

Essentially I will implement the rudiments necessary to becoming a well-rounded beat maker. Depending on where you're at with your level of playing I will also play guitar to your drum beats so you're able to really enjoy the playing experience.

About Gregory

Hello, Future beatmakers! My name is Greg and I am here to unleash your hidden potential. If you have a burning desire to learn amazing tried and true methods to get you playing and keeping the beat fast, I'm your guy! I will never make you work harder than you want to, however, I will let you know

I've known Nathaniel a long time and he is a great guitarist! Highly recommended.
October 22, 2015
Nathaniel taught my son who was a beginning player on the bass guitar. I couldn't be more please with the results. Nathaniel did all the normal teacher stuff--had a plan, had prepared goals, gave music homework, was timely--but on top of that he had a friendly, inviting personality that invited my son to want to spend time learning music. It was Nathaniel's happy, inviting attitude that really made things click during my son's lessons and I'm thankful he was willing to take him in as one of his students.

"When I first met Moriah, I was a little hesitant to continue lessons with her because she was in her 20s like myself. I wanted someone, I guess, older to be my instructor. The older they are, the more they know, the more they can teach right? ...........Well, Moriah is one heck of a smart woman when it comes to music theory, and ear/vocaltraining! She knows what she is talking about and even more so, knows how to explain it in a way YOU will understand. She will work with you until you are able to grasp what she is trying to teach, even if you have to try a million different methods before the right one is found. She would rather spend time with you in fully understanding something then just pushing you along. She is open to questions, comments and concerns you have. Moriah is very aware of the concept of “one size does NOT fit all”, and she will customize your session to your needs, and skill level.

Her lessons usually start of with a couple of stretches (usually just upper body). This is to help relax your body, jaw, mouth, etc before singing. Then she will do some vocal warms that at first seem pretty basic, and not intense, but they will help you in the long run! Trust me. Then she will practice with you a song you want to try to sing or need help with. As you progress, she will have you work on reading music and other skills. (Course, she is open to working on anything more or less as you need). Once again, your lesson is customized on what YOU need.

I’ve been working with her since July 2018. I know that I have improved on ear training immensely! I am able to pick up melodies much faster than before. I am able to sing more powerful than before which is something I struggle with consistently. She will push you! She will take you out of your comfort and push you to have confidence in yourself. She has a great personality. Kind. Fun. Energetic. Intelligent beyond her years. I’m continuing to take lessons with her until she makes me the next Beyoncé or something.

So I highly recommend her. Book a few lessons with her, attend them, don’t forget to take your water, and a recoding device, be responsible and take it serious because she is taking you serious. After all you’re paying for the lessons. You want to improve. And you will.

I’m looking forward to continue working with her and be stretched more."

I have been playing neuvo flamenco for several years and I have had several guitar instructors. None of them come close to Jaxon. Most of my teachers were very good guitar players but not great at teaching - Jaxon is not only a great guitarist but a fantastic teacher. He has the ability to look at every aspect of my guitar playing (technique,posture, composition, etc) and greatly improve it. I highly recommend him to any level of guitarist. He will make you a better guitarist!"

3 Tips for Playing Loudly (and Beautifully) at the Piano

Piano dynamics indicate more than just playing softly or loudly -- there's actual technique involved that you'll need to learn! Here, New York, NY piano teacher Nadia B. shares her tips to keep in mind...   You're approaching a passage with the word 'fortissimo' written on the music, and you're building up to a musical climax. As you feel the power of the music, you want to play loudly, but when you do, it doesn't sound as beautiful as you imagined. Playing loudly at the piano is easy; …
