This is just a follow up. She continues to do an absolutely beautiful job of teaching and yet still infusing the lesson with loads of fun! I couldn’t be happier.... She is the perfect example of what a violin instructor should be.

Jennifer's home is welcoming and so is she! She prepared a lesson book with my name on it and the lesson area was perfect. I cant wait for my next lesson.

Whether you are looking for music lessons for your child or yourself, learning the piano is the place to start. The piano is the perfect instrument for learning music theory, developing dexterity and challenging your mind. Getting to a point where you can actually play songs comes quickly relative to other instruments.
I have taught music for over 35 years. I would love to get you started on the piano.

Mr. Gary is a kind and wonderful teacher who has worked with our son for a while now. Mr. Gary is so good at not only handling the fundamentals and details, but also deepening his students' love of music.
He provides great feedback, always with kindness, and being very clear on how to achieve the particular goal.
If you want your child to have music as something they'll have their whole life, Mr. Gary is a great person to teach them.

I went to Diamond Elementary and because of your excellent teaching skills I am one of the best flute players in the middle school district in Anaheim. I am the section leader for my flute section in Advanced Band and I am section leader for the upcoming AUHSD Honor Band. Thank you so much! I am an 8th grader now.
Tatsuya
Mr. Gary has been teaching our son trombone for a few months now and we have been delighted with his teaching.
Mr. Gary is very patient with our son, and has ignited a real love of the instrument and given our son confidence. He never gets short and is always calm and encouraging, even when our son is not into it at all.
He teaches the fundamentals of breath, playing musically and how to take care of the instrument.
Mr. Gary is always encouraging and positive, and that helps to encourage a love for the music and instrument. Our son has definitely taken to the trombone and a lot of that is due to Mr. Gary's great teaching.

"Great piano instructor!!

Damien has been teaching my two children in my home for 6 months and we have been very impressed!! The progress my children made during this time has far exceeded all my expectations. Damien consistently demonstrates he is a thoughtful, reliable, and knowledgeable teacher. He has a contagious passion and love of music and is able to channel his enthusiasm to his students. Damien demonstrates a strong understanding of each individual child’s ability and customizes lessons to meet current skill level, while at the same time provides appropriate challenges to encourage musical development.
Damien has a strong rapport and sense of trust with my family while still maintaining authority as an expert instructor. His high expectations for every student are evident at piano recitals, as each student performs their pieces proficiently and with great enthusiasm.
I admire all of Damien's characteristics; most of all his gift to connect with students and his ability to adapt instruction to meet individual needs. Damien's positive, encouraging instruction style motivates his students to develop into confident musicians. I highly recommend Damien as a music teacher!"

While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!"
