I have been taking voice lessons with Rob for probably about 2 years now, and he is amazing! He helped me with all of my vocal material for my college auditions, and got my into the musical theatre program at my first choice of school! He has also provided me with tons of knowledge and advice about stuff like auditions and working in the field. Rob has helped me go out of my comfort zone and greatly expanded my repertoire, and I am so grateful for him!
Derek
I began working with Rob about three years ago.. He is one of the most personable teachers that I have ever worked with. The atmosphere never feels like a teacher/ student situation, but more like two friends who are working together to work toward a common goal. He teaches with compassion and understanding at all times, and is never condescending. His talent, knowledge and skill are immense. As a result, I am studying pieces that I would have thought beyond my range. Very highly recommend him.
Peter
I admire Rob as a singer so much. His tone is so good and he makes live performance look so effortless. I'm not that strong of a singer yet, but we are making progress to improve my tone. He's also teaching me how to deliver a stronger performance using stage presence and movement, as well as voice. It helps that he has a great ear for pitch too, so I know when I am singing well. He's encouraging as well as honest, and I look forward to showing off my improved skills sometime soon!

Learning to play the violin doesn't have to be a task. I believe conquering a musical instrument is as much about love as it is dedication. I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of my teachers throughout the years. With my teaching, I intend to instill great technical facility as well as a love and respect for the instrument. (Students must provide their own violin)

I could not recommend her enough!!!! Pepina has made re-learning the violin easy and stress free! She is very patient and a great teacher. I played as a young child and wanted to relearn as an adult. I was very intimidated and nervous about re-learning. However, with the help of Pepina it has been enjoyable and very fun!
katherina
Pepina was direct and very clearly communicated what she wanted me to do. She told me when I was doing things right and helped me when I was doing things wrong.

Dan was wonderful with my son. Very nice experience. Thank you.
Elly
Mr. A. has a talent for teaching that makes it a privilege to be one of his students. Our son has been thoroughly enjoying the time under his tutelage, and continues to do so via video while in-house is not an option. The trumpet lessons have included trumpet technique, musical notation and reading, ear training, trumpet hygiene, and instrument care.
Mr. A. is a respectful, punctual, and precise teacher who inspires students to reach their potential.

"Love taking tap with Kristen! What I love about her is that she meets you where you need to be met and change her approach to teaching a step or skill so that it makes sense to you. If you are an adult beginner, she makes everything really assessable- especially if you don’t have any dance experience. You might go into your first lesson or class nervous, but by the end you’ll have learned how to tap and feel at ease and excited for your next class! Her class is the highlight of my week!"
