I highly recommend Erin for your violin lessons. I’m an adult learner and she has been more than patient, extremely helpful, and has given excellent instruction to help me grow my abilities with my violin.
Sheena
My daughter and I had our first lesson with Erin together. We both had a lot of fun and learned alot in the first lesson.
James
Erin went above and beyond to get me my first ever violin/fiddle lesson on my birthday as part of a surprise from my family. As someone who plays other instruments but has never touched anything with a bow, I was very thankful to have Erin to introduce me to the instrument with patience but also thoroughness and clear expertise. Very much looking forward to continuing lessons with Erin as I begin to learn this instrument.

I have great luck with the black key approach for young beginners. Spoiler alert, the black keys are the pentatonic scale and sound great in any number of different combinations. I emphasize ear training, learning to read music, and also having fun.

Brian is great for kids and adults!

My 10-year-old showed interest in learning piano, and Brian is great! My 8-year-old thought it looked fun, so we added him, and Brian does a great job with him. In fact, my 40-something husband was so impressed, he signed up, too! Brian is terrific with all of them. Everyone is learning at his own speed and each is improving. Brian adeptly teaches according to skill, interest, aptitude, and attitude. I'm so impressed! I heartily recommend for anyone looking for a music teacher.

I try to teach the way that I play and write, with curiosity and compassion. In lessons with me, you'll receive a personally curated curriculum, designed around your own (or your parents') goals, and the kind of music you want to make. I also implement listening and creation segments in my lessons, where I will ask you to bring music you're actively listening to, and push you to write music that you think represents you. I aim to approach learning holistically, but also in a way that will get you excited about learning how to play.

My teaching is queer-friendly, and I seek to create an environment that is comfortable for all genders and sexualities. I am trying to unlearn white-centered teaching practices, and decolonized the way I teach and understand music. If you're willing to learn with me, and be in a space that works to be inclusive toward even the most marginalized, send me a message! Let's make music together.

Get ready for a truly rich and rewarding experience. Maria studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Viktor Merzhanov. She is a 4th-generation pupil of Franz Liszt and 6th-generation of Beethoven. She was one of the fortunate few (Garrick Ohlsson among them) to study with Roberto Eyzaguirre, who was a student and friend of Claudio Arrau, one of the 20th-century's greatest pianists. Arrau studied with Martin Krause, who was one of Franz Liszt's final pupils. Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny. And Beethoven was Czerny's teacher. Through this great lineage, learn an incredible technique that will enable you to play the music of your dreams!

Maria was born in Moscow, Russia. Her mother was a piano teacher and started Maria playing at 4. She studied at the legendary Moscow Conservatory with Victor Merzhanov.

Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.
Tyler
I have felt drawn to the Russian language and culture for many years and had dabbled with learning the language the past year. I really wanted to take my learning process to the next level and really needed that in-person tutoring. Maria has exceeded my expectations. She is patient, beyond knowledgable, Warm-hearted, and radiates a high vibration. She truly teaches the language and culture from the heart. My Russian skills are improving rapidly under Maria's tutorship. When you take lessons from Maria you won't just be her student, you'll be her friend.
Gini D.
I have been studying with Maria for two months and she is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I played piano very seriously as a child, with excellent instruction using the technique of Josef and Rosina Lhevinne. As an adult, I did not play for several decades, so I am returning to piano as an older adult student. In the two months we have worked together, I have made tremendous progress.

The technique Maria teaches emphasizes using the weight of the body to produce sound while keeping the hands and arms relaxed and fluid, which not only produces a most beautiful and expressive tone, but protects the body from injury. Although similar to the Lhevinne technique, Maria’s technique takes it to higher level. Many piano teachers do not teach a technique but, in my opinion, solid technique is critical for an advanced student and best learned from the beginning.

Maria is patient and detail oriented and teaches all aspects piano with mastery. I highly recommend her.

"William has been a wonderful instructor for our 8 years old. He has been patient and has found ways to both explain music and also make it interesting. Will has even modified complex music to an easy to play version so our son could play a song he loved. His musical growth over the last 7 months has been remarkable and its in large part due to Will's low key, thoughtful, patient approach."

"John is a very knowledgeable, patient and professional teacher for my 7 year old beginner who is taking piano lessons with him. When my child has difficulty with a particular technique or lesson, John always tries to come up with different ways to explain it until she has a better handle in the area of difficulty. My daughter says, "Mr. John is very nice and plays the piano really good." Most private teachers watch the clock, but there have been numerous times John has stayed beyond his time to finish explaining something and making sure my daughter understands. I would definitely recommend John as a teacher for anyone considering lessons for any level student."
