Dr. H. is a wonderful and patient Piano Instructor. She is very precise and works on technique very well. She wants her students to succeed.

Outstanding Piano Instructor

She is attentive, listens to what the student needs; the instructor is outstanding because unlike other instructors I've taken from, she gives me what I want to play and I learn basics which are essential. Other instructors have a set way about teaching and does not take the student in mind. I LOVE this instructor! Thanks for asking....

Martin was very gentle in mood and helpful. He didn't waste time and I felt comfortable talking with him immediately. He wasn't at all intimidating and that helped me feel comfortable making noise and telling him about myself. He focused entirely on me. Perfect manner. The HW he gave me was not overbearing and makes perfect sense in retrospect. He gave me confidence that I could achieve my goals much sooner than I expect. I'm hoping I can stick with him. He knows my technique is good, which it is, and I look forward to working with him. Just after getting back home, I really feel like practicing.

Great instructor overall

Marty was a great instructor to me. Taught me a lot in the 4 lessons I had with him. Very professional and knowledgable in Bass. Unfortunately because my schedule changing I could not keep him as an instructor. My only gripe would be that his studio room gets a little cramped and my guitar sometimes would hit things. Other than that. I would definitely recommend him.

About Nicole

Nicole began her musical journey in Long Island, New York when she began piano lessons at age five. While receiving training on piano, she joined her elementary school orchestra in the 3rd grade and quickly soared with violin. During this period, Nicole began learning music theory and the art of reading music. As a fourth grader, Nicole would go on to conduct and tune every instrument in her orchestra during rehearsal. She always competed and won many NYSMA competitions for violin while attending music seminars and workshops. It was then that her teacher realized she had a gift. Nicole continued with piano lessons and began teaching herself guitar. Later, after college, she bought herself a drum set and began to teach herself drums. As an adult, Nicole studied to become an ...

BEST TEACHER EVER! So far i've had two classes and I regret nothing! Nicole is so knowledgeable,patient,fun, and encouraging. I knew from reading all of the wonderful reviews that I would be in good hands but actually experiencing it just validated that to the next level. Give Nicole a chance and you will be happy you did.

Christina C. Palm Harbor, FL

I've been teaching music for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to begin reading playing fun single line short songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play beautiful songs with both hands. I specialize in classical, Jazz, Rock, and Klezmer style music, and I typically use the Alfreds Method books. I also place strong emphasis on reading, rhythm, and finger placement, and I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Christina

I teach music lessons to both kids and adults of all playing levels and all styles including Classical and Jazz.

Christina is an excellent teacher. She is very detailed when
explaining how to play a song in the correct time signature.
I like the fact that she does not move forward until I have
learned where my problem areas are; for example timing.
I would highly recommend Christina as a piano teacher.
