Melissa is patient, explains the concepts very well, she is hands on and makes the lessons very entertaining and dynamic. The way she selects the material for her students she finds the right balance between effective learning, fun and interesting. We are very fortunate to have her as a piano teacher.

She was so kind and helpful toward my kids for the fist day.

"Sam is a truly fantastic teacher. I am a clinical counselor and very picky with giving praise to anyone in the helping and teaching professions, but Sam, who (among other qualifications), also has a psychology AND teaching background, has a gift of making children feel almost instantly accepted, cherished, and excited. He is patient, warm, strategic but flexible, always adjusting to my daughter's needs in an instant. Sam provides that perfect combination of inciting commitment and a disciplined approach to learning while allowing a child to grow in his or her own pace and have fun while doing it that most children need, and I can whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone."
