I have been teaching children and adults for the past 15 years. I have worked in public schools as a band instructor, choir director, orchestra director and general music teacher. My private
horn students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

Daniel is a excellent instructor. He's very patience, knowledgeable and easy to get along with. I cant wait for our next lesson to learn some more. I tried on my own and was going to give up but Daniel has shown me that I can learn to play bass.

We will definitely request Daniel again in the future.

I was apprehensive to the type of instructor I would hire. As we got over the first two sessions and able to get more acquainted, I like that Ben paid attention to the type of music I wanted to learn and tailored his lesson based on my skills level.

This Music Man is great!

Having taken piano lessons for over 40 years on and off, Ben is a refreshing change. He makes me laugh and learn in new ways and has rejuvinated my love of playing music. (Even though I had to bring out the dusty Hanon book!)

Tre's mom; REALTOR/Broker

Ben is teaching Tre wonderfully. He is really getting to know Tre and adjust the lessons accordingly. Tre likes his lessons and seems engaged in the songs, material (theory, practice book and flash cards) and process. It helps that Ben is patient, seems to be a good listener and gives helpful praise when Tre gets a concept or improves in his technique. Keep doing what your doing Ben. We care that it is all a positive experience for everyone : )Dayna

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you Maureen for the piano lessons you have been giving to my mom.. It was so wonderful yesterday my brother and his family came to the house and mom played "Love Me Tender", of course by Elvis Presley.
It was a tear jerking moment.
Mom has had issues with her brain from a car accident, and her piano lessons with you have been the best, best thing for her....from our entire family,
Thank you

Family Music Teacher

We have enjoyed having Maureen as our family’s music teacher. My son started taking flute lessons with Maureen in 2009 and advanced through the levels very quickly. He plays flute in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). He also plays saxophone and tried out and was selected for the Alameda County Honor Band. Maureen worked with him on jazz theory and improvisation and he plays in the jazz band at school. With Maureen, he worked through all six levels of Master Theory and is ready for the college level AP Music Theory at 14 years old. He also completed the MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California) Composer’s Today workbooks and used http://www.noteflight.com to write his own music and participate in composition contests. My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons with Maureen and has been doing a great job. She is playing classical music on violin in school and in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). On piano she is learning to play the blues and jazz, as well as learning theory and composition. Both of my children have been able to successfully participate in the LaHonda Summer Music Camp. We have had a great experience with Maureen throughout the past 5 years and have enjoyed seeing her each week.

Last October my daugther received piano lessons as a gift for her birthday. We started taking lessons with Maureen in November, my daugther, who had just turned 6 was very excited to start classes. Maureen had been very patient with her and caters to her ability and age. Sometimes my daugther gets discouraged, because she feels like she isn't progresing as fast as she would like, but after class she is always excited and ready to come home and continue practicing. Overall, I am pleased with our experience thus far. Maureen is very accommodating and is equipping my daugther with the skills she needs to be a successful piano player.

We have found Mr. West to be knowledgeable, patient, and very good with advanced beginner/intermediate young musicians. (My son is 12 and fairly new to the trombone.) Mr. West is organized, professional, and has a good step-by-step plan for improving their playing. We recommend him highly!

Our lessons instructors will design lesson plans which are made specifically to cater to the individual needs of each eager student. We also have programs that tackle more advanced levels of playing.
