Piano technic, reading music, and learning to express your self on the piano....all of this will be taught in a fun but challenging way

About Ronda

My love of music started at the young age of 6 with piano lessons. My parents always said, "piano lessons were the best investment they ever made." Because of their investment it took me through my growing up years playing piano and singing at church and school then into college with a music major.

Colin took the right amount of time to get to know my son and his skill level so that he could begin the instruction with what’s most relevant to my son. Colin was very patient and encouraging through out the lesson. My son is excited to come back for more lessons.

Amazing lesson, Maggie is very patient and extremely knowledgeable.. the kids absolutely loved her.
Maarise G.
Amazing instructor, kind, patient, and well trained.. the kids loved her
Thomas S.
Maggie has been great. My 5-yr old daughter is very high energy, and I was skeptical that anyone would be able to administer 30 mins of piano lessons to her, but Maggie has easily done so since day one. She's very encouraging and teaches through positive reinforcement. She's very efficient with the time. She packs a lot into a 30 minute lesson. She's punctual, and she was very flexible when I saw how much my daughter was enjoying the lessons and I wanted to increase their frequency. I highly recommend Maggie.

Allen is an EXCELLENT teacher!! Allen knows how to explain music theory in a very practical way, has a lot of patience, and motivated me to keep going after my dream of playing the piano

Great teacher
Rigel
Allen was an amazing Piano teacher. Its been over a year since I have taken lessons with him but the knowledge, technique, and material he taught me I still take with me to this day. Anyone can simply memorize how to play a song but he teaches you the intuition you need to truly play Piano. Music is not something that was easy for me to get, but I can personally say after taking lessons with him I understand Piano and what music really is a lot more than what I did before. He has his recommended way of learning and curriculum, but he really does align his teaching process based on the way the student learns. He is very patient. Sometimes it would take a while for me to catch on to something, but he was always very patient and encouraging which was very helpful for me overcoming challenges. Overall, a great teacher that really understands his students.

"First time I signed up my 5 year old for lessons and Ben has managed to incorporate a serious learning environment with a fun twist for her. At first I thought we were all in over our heads in this venture. But after getting used to the lessons I can see my daughter's learning and love for song will grow more every week. It's not what she initially invosioned in a singing class but I can see she'll realize the value of how singing is done."

"I have been taking acoustic guitar lessons with Rina for about 10 weeks. When I first started I did not know anything about the guitar, but she made it easy by getting me started on learning just one sting at a time. Now I know all of the strings and play chords and a number of tunes. She is very patient and an excellent instructor. I am very happy with my progress and I plan on continuing with guitar lessons until I can play a wide variety of music."

"Before taking lessons from Steven I didn't know it was possible to enjoy practicing my violin. I enjoyed all my rehearsals and quartets of course, but when it came time to practice at home alone I lost all motivation. Steven opened my eyes to what it really meant and feels to be a musician, and in doing so I went from the back of the second violin section in the orchestra to the first few stands of the first violin section. Even other instructors and students at my music school noticed my improvement in technique and skill. Aside from becoming a much better violin player, Steven also helped me recognize my own potential and encouraged me to work hard; to believe in myself. Having Steven as my teacher was the best decision I've made throughout my musical career."

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

One of the most common weaknesses for amateur musicians is a lack of music theory knowledge. Many people assume that learning theory is difficult (it isn’t) that it has no practical purpose (it does), or even that it will actively make them worse at making music (quite the opposite). I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …

5 Simple Things to Add to Your Next Vocal Warm-Up

Singers, you probably already know the importance of a proper vocal warm-up, whether you're practicing or performing. But here's something smart to keep in mind warming up goes far beyond breathing exercises and scales! Even if you're technically just standing still, in reality your whole body is working when you're singing.  Your muscles are active from your head to toes as you stand straight and tall.  Your blood is pumping and your abdominal muscles are definitely engaged as you inhale a …

The Benefits of Music Therapy for Depression | TakeLessons

It’s hard to imagine a world without music. Our favorite songs lift us up and help us better understand love, loss, and life. Although most people feel strongly connected to music in some way, not everyone knows that music can be used to heal. From the very first tune ever hummed, music has brought increased physical and mental wellbeing to musicians and listeners alike.
