I am 70 and recently started learning to play piano with Minoo -- she is simply the very best teacher you could get! Already, she has me playing with two hands multiple songs and without looking at the keyboard! You will be amazed and grateful to have her as your teacher. She has me wanting to and happy to practice.
Judith B.
Minoo has taught me so much more than any piano instructor I ever had and she did it in only a few lessons so far. She makes it fun and now I really like practicing ---something my previous instructors did not seem to inspire me to do.

Great first lesson for my daughter - who is almost 5. Can’t wait for next week.

Private Music Theory Teacher

As an instrumentalist and composer, I have the privilege of an active and successful career in Music, performing across the country with world-class artists, as well as writing music for some of the most sought after international performers.

I believe Music is, most importantly, a tool for communication. As a teacher, I strive to show students how to use this tool on their path towards clearer, more confident self-expression, and in so doing, further myself along the same path.

Very informative, positive, and patient teacher.

Kristapor is a wonderful teacher. He not only taught my son violin, but also inspired him to be a better violinist. He spent hours with my son to come up with a high standard audition tape for applying a summer music camp. My son got accepted & had a great time learning music at the camp. Thank you, Kristapor!!!!

I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!

Jon is understanding of the student's needs. He is friendly and made my son feel welcome immediately.

I went to Jon with absolutely no musically background or training. He has been very patient and I have been amazed at how much I have learned in just a few months. I have not only learned quite a bit about playing the guitar, but I’ve also gained a greater awareness and appreciation of music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

Excellent teacher!

My husband and I are also taking Heidi's Music Theory on-line class which is amazing. We are learning so much. My performance on my flute has improved dramatically since starting my lessons with Heidi. She has so many innovative ideas in regards to teaching. Her compassion for music is very contagious. No matter what the age of the student I feel that Heidi will meet the student where they are and help them grow into the musician they desire to be."

Heidi is an awesome music teacher with great patience and love. She is very inspiring. She helps me to build my confidence and love for music when I felt upset with my voice.

Also, I am from China, she is very patient when communicating with me. She loves teaching international students. To me, she is not only a music teacher, but a loving friend."
