I learned so much from my lessons with Arrica! It was a great balance of learning the basics/ warmups I needed to build a better foundation -- and practicing and learning a song I wanted to focus on. Arrica was supportive, encouraging, and very helpful and specific in her feedback.

Arrica has been a great instructor so far!

A solid, artistic, and flexible piano technique from the beginning. One of the fundamental parts in learning to play piano is to learn the basics of piano technique, which includes proper posture of the body when sitting to play piano, proper fingers, hands, and arms position. The development of the arm and hand flexibility in order to learn the legato and staccato performance from the beginning of the piano studies.

Throughout my 20 years of teaching experience I have developed different methods for children and adults to build a flexible and artistic piano technique that has worked with all my students.

The proper use of the arm rotation, wrist flexibility and how the wrists and arms help to lead the direction of the phrases are fundamentals to attain a beautiful and rich tone .

Great teacher! Knowledgeable and patient

My daughters and I have been taking lessons with Jesus for over 6 months now. I have been absolutely thrilled with Jesus’s lessons for both me and my two daughters. We have learned A LOT about the etiquette and technique of piano - including how to read music and properly position ourselves/our hands when playing. It’s not just about the music - it’s about how music transforms us and has the power to bring so much joy! Jesus is a very patient and caring teacher. I truly enjoy having him in our home and the girls are always excited for their lessons.

During this COVID crisis, Jesus has done his absolute best to teach us through Zoom lessons. He is always flexible, easy to talk to and fun to work with.

I would HIGHLY recommend Jesus to anyone looking for a dedicated and exceptionally trained teacher, who is always on time and excited to watch you succeed.

Thank you, Jesus!!! We adore you!!

Saxophone playing has been a part of my life from as early as remember. My father was a jazz saxophonist and this inadvertently led me toward a similar path. I have been playing professionally since the age of 18 and play gigs every week in the set coast area. I have studied with some of the best saxophone teachers on the planet at Berklee, and constantly draw on information they passed along to me when expressing my style of teaching. I think people automatically assume that if you play saxophone you must play jazz, but I feel that there are so many stylistic opportunities with this flexible instrument. i've managed to play on gigs of all genres with what I know and the approach I take to playing. In my lessons I like to focus on fundamentals but then on how such fundamentals can be applied to different playing situations. From the beginner to Immediate player I really try to focus on sound quality and production, finger technique, time, articulation, theory and building a ...

What a great experience I’ve had taking lessons from Cameron over the years. Not only is so kind hearted and organized but he knows his stuff and is an amazing player/teacher. With him I learned how to improve my sound production/embouchure, technique, time and overall musicality. He explains it all so well! I’d highly recommend. Thanks Cam!!

"Nils has been amazing to work with. Having used books and some other self teaching methods in the past, I felt stuck and after 1 lesson with Nils I immediately was able to get to the next step. One huge difference from other instructors is that Nils encourages me to learn with music that I like which makes a huge difference when practicing. Nils is extremely knowledgeable and patient, I can't thank him enough for his help and expertise."
