We contacted him and he was making a suggestion to have my son go to his house and when I told him I didn’t like that suggestion as I specifically noted I needed at home tutoring he abruptly cancelled and said we weren’t a good fit.

Private Piano Teacher

Whether you are looking for music lessons for your child or yourself, learning the piano is the place to start. The piano is the perfect instrument for learning music theory, developing dexterity and challenging your mind. Getting to a point where you can actually play songs comes quickly relative to other instruments.
I have taught music for over 35 years. I would love to get you started on the piano.

We met Gary today and he came in with the most upbeat attitude and a wealth of knowledge even in this first session. We look forward to having my brother grow and develop as a musician alongside Gary!

Mr. Gary is a kind and wonderful teacher who has worked with our son for a while now. Mr. Gary is so good at not only handling the fundamentals and details, but also deepening his students' love of music.
He provides great feedback, always with kindness, and being very clear on how to achieve the particular goal.
If you want your child to have music as something they'll have their whole life, Mr. Gary is a great person to teach them.

I build up technique and musicality, beginning with scales and instructional books which provide pieces of increasing difficulty. While this is a more traditionally classical method of learning, I also enjoy playing in other styles such as popular and anime music. Especially because of my personal interests, I am very open to teaching you the genres that you are interested in performing. ~

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.

Michael is very talented and he is a great instructor. He explains the techniques really well. Very professional and supportive. I highly recommend him!

Ms. Sally is a great teacher who teaches both our two daughters, currently 8 and 4 years old. She is very approachable, patient and knowledgeable. Both my daughters love her and have progressed very fast since taking her piano lessons, and we are very excited about their next levels! My big daughter also takes voice lesson with Ms. Sally's husband, Mr. Tim, shortly after starting her piano lessons, and has also made significant progress over shortly a few months of time. We have been building a great relationship as between our families too =)
Sheila
My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Sally for a year and a half now and it is great to see her progress. Ms. Sally is very knowledgeable, patient and easy to talk to. She encourages you to stay and watch during practice so you are aware of what is being taught.

"Mrs. Sally, or as many of us refer to her as Auntie Sally, is a wonderful, beautiful, and kind hearted individual. As a piano teacher, she exposes her love and passion in sharing her musical knowledge with others. She is one of the most caring teachers who has made a tremendous impact upon my life, among the 11 years that I have known her. As I was a former student of hers, she has given me the opportunity to share my passion of music with others, through the position of a student teacher. Her bubbly personality, advice, and past experiences give comfort to many students and myself, in a way that will inspire us to keep striving and persevering to our goals. Aside from focusing too hard on the music curriculum she loves to get to know her students better, whether that would be through their hobbies, building a relationship with their parents and other family members, or asking questions that simply let her students know that she cares about them.She has formed many beautiful friendships with her students, but for me she has always been a second motherly figure in my life. I grew up with her and her husband Mr. Tim / Uncle Tim starting at the age of 8 and here I am 19 years old, and still occupying their studio. And honestly, I love her for all that she has provided for me. Her thoughts, her words, and her actions are what sets her aside from the other teachers. Take it from me, she has been by my side and supported me, cheered me on, and made me feel special throughout the years. And that's what she does ... She makes you feel like you matter, because you do. She's more than just a music teacher within her studio, she's more than just an instructor, and she's more than you'll ever know unless you meet her."

"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!"

"My lessons with Ryan have been fantastic. I have been playing the keyboard for a few years casually, and we have been studying both music theory and piano in parallel, which I would recommend for anyone looking to learn theory or piano. On the keyboard, Ryan's expertise shines through in his approach to technique and awareness of the mechanical skills necessary to play musically. Most importantly, he always places emphasis on leading me where I want to go. When I've had an insane week at work and can't put the pressure of practice on myself, he has always been willing to help me relax through jamming while still teaching me important theory and application lessons. I also want to mention how friendly and approachable Ryan is. If, like me, you want an understanding instructor who knows his craft (we're working up to the nuances of jazz) inside and out, I couldn't recommend Ryan more."
