As a novice piano playing student, I was introduced to reading music as well as playing the piano by Buzz Amato, a great pianist and instructor. I would be remiss if I did not share how wonderful my piano lessons have been under the many talents Buzz offers as a piano instructor. His ability to convey concepts/theories of piano playing into understandable and applicable practice has made my learning experience enjoyable. Buzz is a good listener, very patient and observant, and acquires an innate gift to teach piano playing in ways that encourage me to continue my lessons. Buzz is a highly skilled piano instructor.

So, Buzz is pretty much the best! I’m an adult with a full-time career and no musical background, and I've been looking around off and on for years to find a teacher who wasn't stuffy and was open to a non-traditional student with a semi-crazy work-life schedule. Buzz is patient, flexible, and really breaks down the lessons in ways that make sense to my logical thinking. I always walk away feeling that I learned something new and excited to learn more, which I feel is the biggest testament to his teaching skills. His expertise in music theory has really inspired me to do more than simply learn how to read music, too, and I have no doubt that I’ll be taking lessons with him for a long time to come. Plus he’s hilarious, so that helps.

After one of my daughter lessons, she stated "it was like he believed in me." Buzz is a positive non-judgmental teacher. He is concerned about finding the best way to teach you. He is very patient. He has a way of making students feel comfortable and motivated in a safe learning environment.

Buzz is a brilliant musician with professional etiquette that surpasses most teachers.

Brandi is an exceptional teacher. She has only been working with my daughter for a couple of months and she has learned so much about the foundation of singing. My daughter enjoys her lessons and has begun to hear a big difference in her voice. I recently overheard her telling someone that her singing lessons has really improved her singing so Brandi is definitely a keeper!

I took about a year and a half of lessons with Brandi so my review is past due. Straight to the point, Brandi is very talented, knowledgeable, patient, and pleasant to be around.

As an adult student I was apprehensive about taking piano lessons. I wondered what the experience would be like interacting with my teacher and how well I would take the material being covered. Brandi smashed the first concern on the first lesson, and over a period of time developed my confidence in my ability to play so that I would go out and explore new things on my own and try things that I would have otherwise thought were too challenging.

The depth of Brandi's knowledge added to my appreciation of our lessons. Music Theory was not something I expected to learn but it being laced in with the lessons completed it. I learned not only about playing the piano, but why it's being played that way. I am analytical, so this enhanced my experience and rounded my education.

Beyond being a great musician and instructor, Brandi is simply a pleasant person to be around. She takes a genuinely interest in all of her students as well as their progression. I was impressed that she was able to make me feel at ease when I was frustrated and struggling. This is important to confidence building, and vital to the student's drive to persevere.

Finally, I feel confident saying that Brandi will exceed your expectations, and show you how you can exceed your own. I was in the video above, but notice that I was the only person who did not mention how very grateful I am. So, I shall rectify this in my conclusion. I was very fortunate to have Brandi as an instructor and appreciate all the work she has put in to giving me an understanding of piano and music.

Brandi is an excellent teacher. She is working with my grand daughter now vocally and she has improved quite a bit. She is highly skilled, intelligent and a very pleasant teacher to work with. She knows how to bring the best out of Kaylan and my grand daughter is doing things with her voice that she didn't even know she could do. I plan to stick with her through the whole process, of singing, vocals, piano and writing. She is EXCELLENT and well worth the investment!

Highly recommended teacher

I am in my mid-30s and picking up Mandolin for the first time without much background in music. Scott has been really great to learn from, teaching me not only the basics of scales and chords but he also has me working on songs and solos which I never thought I'd be able to do so early. I would highly recommend Scott.

Excellent vocal coach

I've been taking lessons with Jared for a few months now, and I am very pleased with the progress. Jared is really easy to work with, get along with, and is very adaptable. His approach is built off of what you (the student) wants, and finding the best way to achieve that. I would recommend Jared as a vocal coach for any singing style, any gender, and anybody who wants to become a great singer.
