We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Excellent instructor! He is patient and flexible. Determines the learning needs of the student and works accordingly. Honestly appraises progress and helps students excel. Would highly recommend!!

Mr Tom is Fantastic with my 6.5yr old. Patient, fun, relates well. Adjusts weekly to his skill and schedule (if we didn't get a practice in). Virtual works well...I had my doubts but it is good. Well planned and prepared.
Madisen
I had fun. I was only looking to have motivation to practice while I was waiting for my band to start playing together again. He showed relevant and new exercises. I learned new things and gained confidence to play louder. The pieces were fun and a little challenging. He's a good instructor.

"I went to Mr Espinosa's home to take my lesson - the place is right next to the 135th subway stop, very convenient! Mr Espinosa was patient, understanding, and friendly. I was a little worried that a professional like him would laugh at the embarrassing skills of an adult like mine - didn't happen. He was down to earth despite his great playing, kind of more like a friend or a big buddy rather than a teacher. I think our lesson brought me much improvement! He also taught me some helpful daily practice routines. Another little touching detail was he provided me with free drinks and snacks, something none of my other teachers have done before. His studio was also fully equipped: it has a piano, great stereo, stands, and music books."
