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.

Maggie is an awesome piano teacher! It has been 7 years since my last piano lesson and Maggie took over recently. I didn't have much confidence in myself, but I guess she saw potential in me. My former teacher was keen on using children's piano books for me because she thinks, despite being an adult, those teaching materials are the most appropriate for my level. But Maggie had me playing Hanon right away. It was intimidating, but definitely helped me build confidence in myself! I feel so empowered playing the piano now. :) She's also very flexible. My schedule is all over the place right now due to schoolwork, but she's able to accommodate me still. I highly recommend her!
Luke
My six-year old is really enjoying his piano classes with Maggie! She made great recommendations for practice books and my kiddo seems to be learning quickly!
Marie Q.
Maggie is great with my kids. She understands each one's skill level and adjusts her lessons accordingly. I appreciate her patience, especially since my kids are just starting to learn how to play the piano. The best part is that my kids are learning and having fun at the same time.

Music is a subject that anyone can relate to. Playing and performing music is a dream that many people aspire. I have watched my students grow from complete beginners to taking stages in front of a large audience.

I am always thorough about teaching my students the basics: understanding proper technique, dynamics, rhythm, and timing. I teach my students to play to a metronome, read music and rhythms, play songs, and play along with other live musicians. I specialize in many various genres of music including funk, rock, pop, hip-hop, jazz, Latin, prog, and metal. Over time, you will learn to play like the professionals that inspire you.
