Our first lesson with Michael went well. My 7yo son was a little nervous about taking lessons for the first time, but Michael had him playing some notes on the piano and talking soon after we started the lesson. He's looking forward to more lessons with him.

My daughters (8,4) take piano, violin, and voice with Mike, and have for 6+months. Mike is super patient, while teaching not only theory, but also ensuring the girls understand musicality. His style really encourages confidence, and pride in what the girls are able to accomplish. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to take lessons

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!
Brad
Rob is one of the most talented and gifted people I've ever worked with. He's patient, kind, and is incredibly personable. You won't find a better teacher.

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!

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.
