My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.

Dominick C. Apache Junction, AZ

About Dominick

I have eight years teaching experience. Of those seven, five of them have been in music stores wherein I taught students of all ages, musical interests and skill levels. My students have gone on to form rock bands of their own, compete in singer/songwriter contests and pick up other musical instruments all because of the musical interest/passion I have helped develop. I am very involved in the local music scene. I have written, produced, engineered and played on many recordings ranging in genre from folk to metal and classical to jazz. My band, Oceanborn, will be releasing our debut album in two weeks (10/1/2013) wherein I wrote, produced, engineered and tracked guitar. I have a modest, but very high quality studio setup and a lot of versatile gear to help me get the job done. ...

Anna-Lisa H. Mesa, AZ

About Anna-Lisa

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language. In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musically. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years. I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have ...

Anna-Lisa is the best voice teacher I ever had.I'm able to increase my head voice range and chest voice range without tension now. Anna-Lisa is able to diagnose my problems, gives me different techniques to relax and reach higher or lower notes with ease. She also teaches all genre of music and not just concentrate on opera voice.I like to sing pop music,find her lessons very fun, enjoyable,very helpful. I highly recommend anyone who like to learn how to sing to take lesson with her.

Anna Lisa had helped me tremendously through out the time she was my teacher. She was always able to accommodate with my schedule and helped me bring out the best in me, not only with my voice but with my fear of preforming in front of people. She always knew the right ways to explain techniques and bring out the best in my voice. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher.

Music has been my passion for the past 18 years. I started piano when I was 5 yrs old and the violin when I was 7 yrs old. I continued with lessons until I entered the Detroit High School for Performing Arts.

We were disappointed when Alysia showed up late to our 8 year old daughters very first piano lesson (which was an 8th birthday gift.....she was very excited) And then to our surprise she leaves the lesson 5 full minutes early. We thought that maybe she was having a rough day and decided to give it a shot again next week. Well, this time, not to our surprise, after a suspiciously quite...piano lesson...our daughter confirmed what we had hoped was not going on....Ms. Alysia spent much of the lesson texting with "her parents". Just disappointing.

Solid, happy Teacher, quality instruction!

Aysia has been a fantastic teacher for my 13 year old daughter for violin. She has clear expectations and lessons. She is very competent with her skills and good at communicating her knowledge in an encouraging and constructive manner. She has been flexible with the schedule when necessary, due to life happening. I highly recommend her as a choice teacher.

Awesome!!!!

Alysia is a great teacher I was a little nervous to use her because most of the reviews were written by parents whos kids are learning and I am an adult who just really wanted to learn the violin but after meeting Alysia she is not only patient but informative I think learning as an adult we or at least I tender to want to run before I can crawl like let's just learn this so I can get to the "good stuff." The way she explains stuff really lets you see there is method to the madness of trying to learn something so complicated? She is also easy to work with both in song selections (within abilities) and how she teaches. Learning the violin poster among a thousand other things is important and she has a way of correcting that doesn't make me feel stupid I know my husband has the nicest things to say. After a few lessons I am still on simple songs at only a few lessons and I still mess up but I have improved enough he doesn't run away or put in ear plugs anymore. Thank you Alysia!!!! I cant wait till I get a few more lessons in.... I am very excited!
David O. Queen Creek, AZ

About David

Greetings! Like you, I have a passion for music. I was singing, humming and whistling since before I can remember. I started piano at age 5, clarinet at 10, saxophone at 11, and took lessons like you're about to for them all up through college, playing lead tenor sax and clarinet in the Utah State University Jazz Orchestra for 5 years (among many other groups- all-state, small wedding combos, pit orchestras, barbershop quartets, church choirs, etc.) Meanwhile, I pursued a more "sensible" career, earning a BS and MS or mechanical and aerospace engineering. After 6 years of working that career, I could no longer deny that my heart was in music and teaching. I have now taught band (elementary, Jr. & Sr. High Concert band & Jazz band), Math (algebra & AP Physics) and HS physics for ...

Clarinet · In studio
My experience as having Mr. David O. as a teacher has been nothing but positive!

Not only is Mr. David O. a patient teacher but he also knows that every student is different by taking an interest in each student, which in my opinion is very important, and will do his best to teach them with different methods. His teaching schedule is pretty flexible and also has more than enough experience to teach both saxophone and clarinet. If I hadn't had him as my clarinet instructor, I probably wouldn't have done as many things without his encouragement.

Last year as a high school senior, I never even thought of auditioning for anything, let alone for regional band. In fact, I was going to dismiss it until I asked Mr. David O. his opinion of what I should do. He had me go for the sake of receiving audition experience then helped me through my scales and etudes. A couple of months later it’s finally audition day and I got into regional band on my first try, which isn't as common or easy as one would think. As a clarinetist who has been playing for 8 years now, I have never improved as drastically in my music experience as I have with Mr. David O. and recommend him to anyone who has a love of music.
