Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

Voice is my first instrument and I teach all levels. The vocal technique I teach is drawn from the Bel Canto Tradition and tailored to fit more modern styles of music with emphasis on posture, muscle relaxation and breathing technique among fun and interesting vocal exercises!
I have specialized in Jazz voice and improvisation and I am happy to pass on to you what I have learned so far.

Bring your elderly loved one or your child with special needs for music therapy sessions in which we'll actively make music -- singing, playing rhythm instruments, and moving -- in ways appropriate to age and capabilities.

Teresa is an amazing music teacher! This was my first time getting singing lessons, and I was really nervous going into it, but she did such a great job at helping me feel more comfortable in the beginning. She’s so kind and she’s a great teacher too. The techniques and skills that she taught me have been extremely helpful, and she teaches them in a really easy-to-understand way. I would definitely recommend her!

Technique lays the ground work for proficiency in any instrument. The voice is no different. I teach breathing, placement, ear training and harmony. That said, I focus my coaching on the power of authentic story telling using movement and acting exercises to build artistic skill.

Toni has been one of the most important people in my life. She taught me not only how to sing, but also how to perform and be a real musician. She makes the lessons incredibly fun and helpful. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without her.
Judith
I've had a few singing teachers before and let me just say it was always mediocre. It was all fundamentals and straight to techniques. With toni it was so much fun and very simple. She makes sure that I don't feel like I'm being tested or points out my flaws but rather my strength which makes me feel even more motivated to sing. She's an amazing instructor I recommend her to anyone who wants to have fun learning rather than feeling like they're in a class. She's passionate, kind and she is an amazing teacher. Take her

"A very gifted instructor. I have been taking lessons from Mark for over 4 months now. I really enjoy the classes. Mark is very consistent and patient. He never gets upset or critical, other than to tell you what you are doing wrong, which I appreciate.
I have learned a lot and on my way to playing some conventional music. The hardest thing to me has been learning the techniques of playing 2 different keyboards with different hands. Mark uses melodies and exercises to allow for the development of the techniques required. It really makes learning the accordion unique in that regard. Training your hands, your ears and your brain is challenging but fun and Mark is the best teacher for this by all means."
