Spencer has been giving lessons to my son for the past couple of years for Upright Bass and Bass Guitar. We started with In-home and now, due to the current environment, have moved to virtual lessons. My son loves Spencer's friendly personality and is always looking forward to his lessons. I appreciate the flexibility of the schedule and the ability to work on multiple instruments when needed. Having a great teacher has always been important. We consider ourselves lucky to have met Spencer and continuously recommend him to our friends and family. My son has advanced tremendously in both instruments, and I credit Spencer for that.

I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat.
Tom
James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays.

I have been helping beginners and other more experienced musicians to learn to play the piano for 23 years. We can start from scratch and advance through five levels of piano methods. I have used various published methods over the years depending upon the experience and age of the student. I emphasize fundamental techniques of piano playing and music reading. A good piano player can eventually play any style he or she would like to focus on. It is never too late, you can begin to learn to play piano today!

My background in classical, jazz, pop, songwriting, composing, and arranging all make me an extremely versatile piano teacher. I teach using a personal method which combines parts of all the most popular methods for piano to create an extremely varied and flexible method for each individual student. Using my experience as a composer/arranger, I frequently create arrangements for students when they express a desire to learn specific music, as I skillfully appropriate arrangements for each students' skill level.

Students will not only learn how to play the piano, but how to express themselves with it, as I keep creativity a high priority in students' progress and encourage improvisation. Students will also be introduced to basic music theory which will help them grow even further in their musical development and stimulate creativity. Many of my students have gone on to win awards, study piano at places such as Berklee College of Music, learned how to improvise, and even composed ...

I am not one to take the time to write a review, but my experience must be shared and voiced. I met Professor Candid in early September. Hesitant to start, she immediately provided me with the safest space to be myself, to express my doubts, and to expand on the craft of music with her guidance. She exceeded my expectations time and time again, giving me endless tips, daily practice routines that not only incorporated vocals but mind, body and soul altogether. She did not hesitate to keep me in mind throughout the week, sending me clips of artists, helping me envision my own personal voice. She is always attentive, extremely patient, and has such grace when communicating with you about everything. I have been a music student for most of my life, have been with a handful of music teachers and she is 1 out of 2 teachers that have fully created a 100% non-judgmental environment for me to grow and learn. She always has a great listening ear and always keeps in mind what your personal goals and intentions are, guiding you with any small or huge dream you have your mind set for. If you’re looking for a professor that will not give up on you, will constantly be available to help you throughout the week, someone that shares her joy, teaches you not only her limitless knowledge on music but her wisdom that will forever leave you with such joy and peace every time you end your class session with her, then do not doubt to take your lessons with her! She is the best out here! Forever giving amazing quality lessons! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

Candida is an incredible music teacher and I feel lucky to be her student.

I started taking lessons with Candida since March this year. With some background in guitar (mostly self-taught, mixed with learning from different teachers on and off), I wanted to create a more solid music foundation. I wanted not just to play guitar by following videos and tabs, but become a “musician”, that can improvise, play by ear, compose my own pieces eventually. My goals included learning how to read sheet music, training for a better ear, basic singing and piano skills. Candida created a personalized learning plan with all the above goals in mind, gave me homework each week that was catered to my strengths and interests. Her vast knowledge in music education also allowed me to learn tactics backed by research to accelerate my memory and overall learning. We focused on the following topics this year: For singing, correct placement of head voice and chest voice; practices to soften head voice in higher notes and gain a smoother transition. Ear train that focused on singing (not just listening) melodic and harmonic chords (triads and different extensions). Sheet music reading and playing for several classical pieces (Mozart, Chopin, Tchaikovsky). Basic chords voicing, cadences, inversions, and accompanying singing for some classic songs (Elton John, Cold Play for example). I was amazed at how much progress I made in just 9 months. I am able to sing confidently several songs I loved (including Bohemian Rhapsody) while accompanying myself on piano (I had only touched piano probably only 3 times before March). I also added couple of classical piano pieces into my repertoire (including a beautiful Waltz by Chopin that dumbfounded my friends). I can “hear” melodies better and locate notes with much ease. Candida also encourages her students to show their progress and perform, and I even participated in two student recitals this year, and was quite proud of the performances. I can't recommend Candida enough!
Melissa
My 11 year old worked once 45 minutes weekly with Candid for approximately 5 weeks practicing a couple English songs she was familiar with and two Portuguese songs that were new to her (she does not speak Portuguese). It was incredibly rewarding to witness her skills develop in such a short period, as well as her self-confidence and self image. She is half Brazilian, and she was so proud to relate with her Papai—Daddy—in his language. I also had the pleasure to virtually attend an online concert of Candid’s adult and younger students. Her rapport was beautiful with the patchwork of her student body—an eclectic group whose skills filled the spectrum, but whose passion burned bright as one. I highly recommend Candid as a teacher. I will note that she did classes online, and I encouraged practice between classes. She did not solely rely on the weekly classes as a means for learning and improvement. Her skills improved steadily over the five weeks with the guidance and careful coaching of Candid’s classes. Practice between classes was essential to make the most out of all Candid has to offer.

"Ezra is currently teaching my six year old son and I on the piano. He is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of the piano (eg, history, theory, fundamentals, artistry, technique, etc.). I have played piano in the past, but he is expanding the depths of my understanding of it. Ezra is able to be patient with my son, while still holding him to a certain expectation. His love and appreciation of music is apparent. I would highly recommend him."

"Both my kids (9 and 7) have been taking lessons with Brent for almost 2 years. I credit Brent with inculcating that love for music with my kids. Brent is patient and adjusts to skill level. I like that he gently pushes his students to practice during the week so that they can move ahead during lesson time. My son especially has taken off after he started his lessons, trying new things wrapping up homework ahead of schedule - which is great to see!"
