Ms Viva is a patient, loving teacher. My 11-year-old son loves her piano lesson and has more motivation at practice since he started learning from Ms Viva.

I give beginner piano students a great head start in their musical education, with a solid foundation covering piano technique and an introduction to music theory which would serve them well whether they continue to pursue piano, or pick up another instrument along the way.

Caleb tunes right into your experience level and has a ton to offer right from the beginning while being really easy to work with. We talked about goals and trumpet history and started structuring a new warmup routine. With Caleb's diverse performing experience, he can teach you about hip hop, funk, jazz, orchestral, and small ensemble brass work (plus probably some other stuff I don't know about yet).

My 9 year-old son has been enjoying his trumpet lessons with Caleb a lot. Caleb is nice and patient, which is very encouraging for children. He is also easy to communicate with, very flexible and always on time. I highly recommend him for younger clients.

I've been teaching piano for 5 years and have played for 25 years. I recently moved from Dallas, where I taught a studio of 25 students. I teach all ages and ability levels and specialize in classical piano. You'll start by learning the basics of technique, note reading, and music theory, and soon you'll be playing a variety of music from your favorite styles!

Elizabeth did a great job making my son feel comfortable and introducing him to the basic concepts of the piano. Unfortunately, he was hesitant and not willing to participate in this lesson. My husband and I look forward to the next lesson and his willingness and enthusiasm to participate with Elizabeth.

I teach piano in the same manner in which I teach every instrument. First I teach students the rudiments of the instrument. Also I teach them how to read and a bit of music theory. From that point I like to follow the students lead. They bring in songs that they would like to learn, or possibly how to play a certain style like Funk, or Blues, or how to approach a classical sonata. At every point I try to point out general aspects of music that need to be learned from the material that they choose.

Love my lessons

John is an amazing teacher all around. Very professional and good at getting me to understand things which may be a bit confusing. I am currently reading and playing between four books and I never thought it would be possible especially just after taking lessons for a year. Sometimes I feel a bit frustraited when I am not able to play certain pieces or when I dont understand a concept but John is great at breaking everything down and making it easier. I am now realizing how my piano skills can be utilizied in my other music projects. When I attend my lessons I am reminded why I love having them so much. With him as my instructor I can see my skills improving and I know I will only get better. I recommend piano lessons to everyone and if you are looking to have a great teacher John is your go to person !

I am a professional musician and educator with over 15 years of teaching experience. My students have won music competitions and scholarships both nationally and internationally. I approach each student as a unique and promising artist. I help them set individual goals, then plan and prepare lesson materials tailored for what he or she intends to achieve. I encourage them to work hard, dream big, and enjoy the rewards of learning and performing music.
