Successfully teaching current students with clear, concise lessons.

All of my current students have developed confidence and enthusiasm to learn all materials presented in an easy to comprehend format.

Each student learns at different levels so all lessons are customized to challenge them but also insure they learn and retain all materials presented to them.

Currently have 16 students ranging from beginners to advanced level.
When selecting a teacher, make arrangements to meet in person to review short and long term goals of learning a musical instrument. Pricing should only be used as the last criteria before making a final decision. It's important to insure your instructor is patient and willing to challenge students to setup a practice routine that will fit their current schedule.

If a student needs an instrument, have instructor give recommendations based on the musical styles they are interested in learning.

Students often ask how long it will take to learn to play a Guitar.

Alejandro is a great instructor, really knowledgeable and motivational. I started lessons with him as a beginner and I have made a lot of progress.

Alejandro is a marvelous teacher of music, the guitar specifically, to my 3 grandchildren every Saturday and now for getting onto a year. They love it and are learning ever so much! He is a most talented musician, himself, and has a way of transferring all of that to the 2 boys and my granddaughter. He is reliable and punctual and a treasure to have the opportunity to have him teach the children. I studied the piano for 15 years when I was young, so know a lot of what I speak

Like any good teacher should be, Alex is patient and very instructive. He can cover a variety of musical styles and ability levels. I would recommend him to anyone.

I give a lot of importance to getting to know the students. Each student has different goals and plans in mind that knowing them makes the lessons so much more interesting, motivating and interactive. Students are in a road to discovery. I try to do my best in helping them in this path of discovery by giving them the tools they need which are learning the techniques and having fun and enjoying the art of playing the piano.
There is always so much joy and excitement in learning to play a new piece. I hope everyone can experience this.

Nadia is a fine instructor. Take it from me who's been coached in many sports - tennis, skiing , riding, swimming. AM is a sport, too, in that the student has to do most of the work. Nadia tells us what to do to improve, but it's up to us to practice.
Tori
In just one lesson, my daughter learned so much and gained the confidence to work through a difficult piece of music!

I'm a professional singer, composer, and arranger with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz Vocal Performance. I've toured throughout the United States and several countries in Asia.

I teach all ages and welcome beginners. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs and goals of each student. My students can work on vocal techniques and improvisation (e.g., scat singing, melody changing, etc.) over their favorite songs. If they would like, I can help my students build a solid foundation in music theory, composition, and arranging.

I've taught older students who have a passion for jazz and also younger students who are exploring the many wonderful aspects of this music.

Above anything else, I'd like to make sure my students are having fun and expressing their love for singing!

I started taking lessons with Aya about three weeks ago and they have been great! I'm a former jazz vocalist who is getting back into singing with hopes to perform again in the near future. Aya is a patient, knowledgeable, and fun teacher. With her guidance, I feel confident that I'll be able to regain the voice I once had. I highly recommend her!
