Cool guy, very patient and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
Annabel
Andy has been so fantastic with my daughter. Not only does he teach her the fundamentals of piano, he also incorporates teaching her more modern songs from bands she likes as well as songs she has written herself. He encourages her to always be creative and records her playing and singing the song, with his accompaniment, for her to listen to. She has been learning with Andy for a few years now and every lesson is new and different. We couldn't recommend him enough
Paul
Andy always manages to motivate my daughter and get her to enjoy playing her viola, which is no mean feet! She looks forward to the lessons and has improved greatly over the last couple of years.

I started viola 8 years ago in order to expand opportunities and get to know more about this amazing instrument, but I began teaching about 4 years ago. I teach beginners to advanced students, and incorporate basic music theory, note reading, and any other skills a student may require based on their skill level.

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

"Abigail is a really great teacher! She helped me when I needed help on something with school for my music classes! I play the violin and I recently switched viola for a new experience and new opportunities and she was still able to help me with that and tried to be very flexible with my skills! Abigail is a great private teacher lesson and if you play violin I definitely recommend having her!"

"Helen McDermott
Exceptional Violist, Masterful Teacher

Helen McDermott is an exceptionally talented violist who is also a masterful, empathetic teacher. She brings a truly unique combination of technical virtuosity, pedagogical professionalism, and psychological insight into the music studio. I know this from personal experience because I have greatly benefited from being one of her viola students.
Her vast experience as a professional violist gives her a wealth of technical knowledge, not only about how to play the viola but, more importantly, how to play beautiful music with this instrument. She has studied, and continues to study, different teaching methods, drawing from all of these approaches to develop a program of instruction designed to meet each student’s individual needs. She also connects empathetically with her students, creating an atmosphere of collaboration and mutual respect that alleviates anxiety, thereby allowing genuine learning to take place.
In short, her breadth and depth of expertise, in both musicianship and pedagogy, make her an ideal viola teacher who guides students on their path to realizing their full potential as a violist and as a complete musician."

"We LOVE Susanna!
My son decided to play the viola, out of the blue (not for school, just for his own sake), so we went to TakeLessons to find him a teacher.
Susanna is so patient, and supportive. He has steadily increased his knowledge and abilities with her guidance.
My son always finishes his lesson and says, that was a really good lesson! Music to my mama ears!
We highly recommend Susanna!"
