Evelyn is a fantastic teacher
Jillian K.
Evelyn is very sweet and encouraging and made my first lesson so much fun. After my seven year hiatus from studying piano, she quickly assessed my strengths and weaknesses and created an action plan. She assigned beautiful pieces and really crammed a lot into an hour session. Feeling very excited to continue working with her.

Nick is an amazing voice teacher and a highly skilled singer himself. His lessons are very thorough, but also fun! While Nick gives you corrections, he also emphasizes the things that you are also doing well on. You will leave his lessons feeling confident and energized!
Emma
I have had the privilege of working alongside Nick, learning from him, and watching him grow as a performer and as a teacher. I have seen him instruct and collaborate with peers and adults, as well as kids ranging from 8 to 18. The way in which he is able to articulate and pinpoint areas where improvement is available, while simultaneously keeping things fun and positive, is a true accomplishment. He cares so deeply about the work, as well as people. If you are looking for someone for your kids or for yourself, Nick comes with a plethora of knowledge and a humble, jovial demeanor. It will be a judgement free zone, so you can come as you are, wherever you are with your singing journey. Be prepared to work hard, connect to your body, and have a great time. I personally still look to him for audition advice, style tips, and reminders of technique. I could not recommend Nick enough.

Has your ex piano teacher made you learn pieces that you didn't want to learn and now you're looking for a new instructor? Look no further as you have come to the right place.

About Andrew

Growing up, my dream job consisted of putting a constant smile on people's faces. Upon graduating high school, I started teaching music when I was 18 years old.

Andrew is exceptionally talented with a keen ear. He was very understanding and flexible to my needs and open to the pieces I wanted to learn. Reasonably priced to allow long term instruction and consistent lessons.
James Sullivan
My daughter liked his teaching style which is most important. He was also very professional during the piano lesson, and he taught her pieces that she had trouble practicing on her own. He is very flexible in teaching anything the student likes.

Tigray was very professional yet friendly. My son really enjoyed his first lesson with him.

Tigran is a skillful, kind, patient and honest teacher. I’m a beginning adult learner and have been progressing very quickly with his help. Tigran’s teaching is structured and organized while keeping the lessons challenging and interesting enough to want to keep going. I value his time and knowledge.

*Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, please note I am only accepting students for online lessons until further notice*

I have over 10 years of teaching experience and teach beginning to intermediate violin lessons. Violin was the first instrument I learned to play and I especially enjoy working with beginning string players. Developing a good ear for pitches and proper playing technique are extremely important for violinists and I focus on these areas foremost. Each lesson is customized for the student’s age, interest, and technical level.

How to Sing Like Beyonce

Beyonce has been the center of pop culture attention lately, following her Inauguration Day performance, and love-it-or-hate-it Super Bowl spectacle. The singer is often praised for her vocal range and powerful sound - but perhaps her most well-known stylistic specialty is her use of melisma - moving between several notes in succession to create a dramatic, "bluesy" effect. The technique is attributed to gospel and jazz music, but has become more mainstream as artists like the late Whitney Houst …
