I believe music makes an individual happier and assists in intellectual growth. If you just want to learn 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' or pursue a professional career in music, you have to start with something and I would be more than glad to help you start in your new adventure.

About Javier

My ukulele mentor was extremely knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of various music formats. She broke down complex details into language that I could understand. She challenged me with next steps and was kind to make me feel accomplished.

I am interested in teaching people in the ways they learn best, using the best methods available. I keep up with brain and learning research and attempt to incorporate into my teaching new understandings of learning and how the brain processes music. Because each student is unique, with her own learning style, motivation, goals, and desires, each lesson is uniquely tailored to that student, while still including standard elements necessary for establishing an excellent technique, while increasing students' knowledge of music theory, history, literature, performance, and practicing skills.

I teach violin using Suzuki, Rolland, Havas, traditional, piano using traditional, Faber, Bastien, Snell, and both using my own methodologies. My violin group classes are a unique blend of Suzuki and my own creative exercises, games & props.

Patti is a very patient knowledgeable teacher. Enjoyed every minute of our lessons and learned so much. She is also very funny I enjoy her humor.

In the past, Ms Brimberry taught both my daughers. When I decided to learn piano, I contacted her. My online classes with her has been an excellent educational experience. My preconceived ideas about learning piano were quickly dispelled as she constructed lessons to both my weaknesses and strengths. She corrected rhythmic errors by analyzing my learning style and then helped me to be precise in my technique and reading. She spent a great deal of time showing how to interpret what a composer intended. Ms. Brimberry was always prepared for my lessons, often bringing the world of music through biographies and history that made each lesson dynamic within the context of the composers era. Finally, she taught me how to practice; a skill that has saved me a great deal of time.

I've been taking online lessons with Wei for the past couple of months, and I quite enjoy them. As an adult piano player, I don’t have specific goals. I just play for fun most of the time. Wei, nevertheless, made specific teaching plans for me. He learns my strength and weaknesses, and chooses pieces that are both enjoyable to play and technically challenging for me, so that I’m able to tackle my weaknesses. His expertise helps me improve in many ways, like piano techniques and overall understanding of music. After a few lessons with him, I gained confidence in playing. I’m able to improve my performance of the pieces I love. Besides, Wei is an easy-going person. It’s fun to work with him. I strongly recommend his lessons if you are looking for a teacher with patience, expertise and passion for music.

We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!
Ashna S.
Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

"Great mentor and teacher for all levels

Chuch is a great teacher and I recommend him wholeheartedly. I have been mentoring under him for over 6-months and I feel I made the right choice. He has customized my lessons to my needs, level and skills and has been very flexible with the learning lessons themselves. He is very knowledgeable and able to help me through all my issues. I am difficult to work with, generally speaking and as I am stubborn-bad habits at play here, but he was able to find the right approach for me and I have made great progress since I've started given I have had limited-to-no-time to practice at home at times.

I am over 30, so it goes to show that even older dogs can be led to learn new things, given they have the right teacher and approach.

Absolutely recommended!"
