Excellent piano teacher for our 6 year old son. Jenny is patient and great overall with kids. I appreciate the incorporation of both theory and practice into the lessons Seven months in, we have seen significant progress and best of all, our son is showing initiative to play on his own.

Great teacher!

My daughter, now age 7, has been taking piano lessons with Jenny for 9 months now. She is progressing quickly. Jenny is patient with her, even when my daughter is not interested and squirming around in her seat. She has given her a broad amount of knowledge, both theory and practical, and my daughter flourishes (when she wants to)! Jenny has tried to make it more fun for my daughter to keep her interest by creating easy versions of songs that my daughter will enjoy playing and singing. This has made a world of difference to my daughter. Even though my daughter dislikes practicing, I can see that she is progressing and enjoys playing when she learns how to properly play a song.

Jenny to the Rescue!

My daughter's wedding was weeks away, and I had never been able to dance a step. For that important occasion, however, I wanted to be able to at least survive a little waltz. My daughter and I selected a short piece, connected with Jenny, and she took it from there. In three lessons, she taught us the basics, provided some great pointers, a little choreography, and even taught us a few impressive moves to throw into the mix. The results exceeded everyone's expectations, and brought not only resounding applause at the reception, but also sentimental tears to many eyes. With Jenny's help, I came further in dancing than ever before in such short time in any subject.

An extremely patient, caring, and capable instructor, Jenny always listens carefully to your questions and ideas. Then, it's fascinating to watch her pause a moment, process the issue, and come back with a solution that's exactly right. Without her, a great moment and memory for my daughter and me might never have happened.

Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!

Arlette is a wonderful teacher and has really clicked with my daughter. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week. She is teaching her how to read and understand the music as well as how to play the cello. Here sessions are very relaxed and fun and I am confident that my daughter will not only learn how to play the cello, but love playing the cello. I can see how she passes that passion on to the student. If you are looking for a fun, passionate and well education teacher to work with your children, she is the one.

Sincerely,

Karynn Bonner

I first began studying with Arlette when I was a young girl who knew nothing about reading music. She was an amazing teacher for me as a young girl, and continued to be as I grew up. Arlette has taught me and helped me hone my technique and musicality, from the beginning before I could hold a bow through the years and improvements.

Patient and Caring

Our experience with Brian as piano teacher to our two children has been incredible. He has brought each of them along at their own pace and they have learned to play very well. Brian has always been patient and kind.
This has been particularly important with our (now) 8 year old son who is autistic. He can get easily distracted, frustrated, bored, or just plain ornery and uncooperative. Mr. Brian has always exhibited great patience toward him, taking breaks when necessary and generally bringing our son along at his own pace--and our son has shown remarkable progress.
We highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher.

Great All-Around

Brian is an awesome music teacher. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable about music theory and a pleasure to be around. He teaches me piano, and is good about introducing new pieces to me, as well as teaching me the more complex nuances within each piece.

He is also great with kids! I have 2 little ones, and whenever they happen to be around for my lesson time, Brian keeps them engaged with music. Whether it's trying to play something themselves on the piano, accompanying them on the guitar, or bringing fun music-related props, Brian makes it fun

I highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher, and he is also a very talented guitarist! 5*!

Delilah is an amazing violinist whose passion for music is contagious. I am almost 25 years old and six months ago I picked up a violin for the very first time. Playing this instrument was a life-long dream that I finally decided to pursue and Delilah's encouragement and support has helped keep me going. I was nervous to begin lessons because my memories of playing the guitar was of the process becoming less about artistic exploration and more about conforming to a rigorous routine that I soon turned against. My experiences with the violin have been extraordinarily different, thanks to Delilah.

I love Delilah! She always has useful tips and suggestions that are so helpful. I have been playing several years and have taken lessons and classes elsewhere. She introduced me to practice techniques that make conquering a new piece much, much quicker and easier. Now I am way more confident with my instrument
