Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Hi. This is Jessica H. I came from a family with strong music background. Currently I just graduated from San Francisco conservatory of music with Masters degree. I am a very patient person who has huge passion about working with kids.I have been teaching piano over 15 years. Since I have been teaching a quite long time. I have had students who past the highest level of ABRSM .I can be more serious and push a student to get ahead, or simply teach to have fun - to appreciate and enjoy music. I have learned, is to expect the best, pay closest attention to the students - to what they are ready for, what they want, what they are struggling with, and have a good sense of humor. Inspiring and developing students passion into music.

Jessica is a professional. Her studio is set up to accommodate a student in maximum privacy and comfort. She Is a lovely young woman who obviously enjoys her craft and is skilled at teaching in a compassionate way yet sets a high standard for her student. It would be important for a student to be self-motivated to PRACTICE diligently. Jessica does not demand that a student practice, but expects that her student will have practiced. I compliment her teaching. One final note: she is kind.

Jessica is awesome! Full of positive reinforcement and very patience. I highly recommend!

Hello there! As a pianist I believe that music study is a gift that has transformative power. As a piano teacher I believe that teaching is a rare opportunity to mentor a child in music, or fulfill the dream of playing music for an adult.
I have come to realize that I am hardwired to give, to share, to encourage and to guide. My hope for piano lessons is to share with my students at least a portion of the ways that music has benefited me.
I consider it a privilege to guide individuals in discipline, creativity, self-expression, and developing a strong sense of worth in what they do. I am inspired by witnessing those moments of excitement as students rise above challenges and accomplish more than they thought they could.
All of the above is my big picture goal for the weekly routine of learning new pieces, musical theory, solid technique, improvisation, and everything else encompassed in a well rounded music education at the piano.

Annette is the best! My 5 y/o is pretty shy and Annette won her over quickly. Lessons are varied and at a good developmental pace. Since we've had to transition to online lessons, we've been pleased with how it has translated. Thus far, online lessons are still challenging and yet engaging. Can't recommend sweet Annette enough!
Michele
Annette is amazing. My girls love her. She encourages them and teaches them so well, I don't even have to ask them to practice! She is HIGHLY recommended!!!

Annette is a fantastic teacher. My 7 year old daughter started learning piano with Annette one year ago and she has grown so much over the course of the year! We are so grateful for Annette's patience, positive attitude, thoughtfulness, and her passion for what she teaches. We absolutely recommend her.

Music is Fun!! So why shouldn't lessons be fun? I strive to cater each lesson to each student's wants and need and make it enjoyable at the same time. I have been teaching all genres of music to students ages 4 and up for 10 years and find ways to make any music and opportunity to learn the foundations of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. I'm looking forward to working with you!

"I love Fawn! She's a great piano and voice teacher. My daughter started piano with her at 5 1/2 years old, and I was so thrilled at how Fawn was patient with my daughter's wandering interest. She works within my daughter's personality which makes it so much easier for my daughter. I feel Fawn really tries every angle to interest the kids, even using the iPad to guide kids through rhythmic games. My daughter also started improving immensely in her reading and writing at school once she had started piano lessons. It really was quite profound - and true what the studies say about music lessons improving academic performance! We just started doing vocal lessons and I love Fawn's individual approach. Speaking with Fawn, I can say I am completely taken with her enthusiasm and supportive attitude towards the kids and their musical development. I drive out of my way to take lessons at her studio, but she is worth it! On occasion we have done online, and that works fine too. Don't hesitate to go with Fawn! You'll be so happy you did!"
