I use many different methods to teach note reading, good technique and performance proficiency. I also customize lessons to help individuals reach their goals such as learning to play with a jazz band, play for a church or to play favorite hits. And of course I teach students how to excel in the classics.

Laurie was an excellent teacher for my middle-school tuba player. She was very patient and encouraging. She was very knowledgeable on the details of playing the instrument.

After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first not

Denny
As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.

Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

My 12 year old son loves all music in general, not just a single instrument. He has been playing piano for a while and was able to click with Alex immediately. The way she spoke WITH him ( not just to him) about All aspects was great. She works very well with my son and he is looking forward to his nExt lesson.
Nona R.
I felt very comfortable with her. She was very patient and gave clear instructions on what to work on for next time.
David
Alex is very patient and able to adapt to her students. I studied with her for a year and also got to see other students work with her and she always had a way of getting each student to accomplish their goals. I think when you look for a teacher, you really are looking for someone to teach you how to learn. So many teachers tell you something or tell you what to do but never help you develop a skillset. Alex is different in that she absolutely focuses on developing a fundamental process so that each student not only learns but knows how to learn. As a result, there is progress I can see immediately, of course, but also years down the road. If you're looking for a teacher seriously, consider someone who will make a lasting impact and will make you a better overall person— not just tell you to do something and move on. Alex is a teacher who, regardless if you pursue music, you will come out better because of her teachings. Highly recommend!

"I didn’t think I’d learn this much online! I really like Grace’s teaching style. She’s really organized. I love that she sends tailored videos, shares notes on what we worked on every week. The piano professor I took in high school would never take that time/ would be too old tech-wise to try that, not to be rude. She’s very humble and giving. Sometimes she gives me extra lesson time if no one is after me! Best teacher ever."

"Wonderful Teacher

(Age and gender refer to my sons at the time of the lessons.) Laima taught piano to both of my sons from 2007 to 2012. She was an excellent teacher, helping them to discover a love of playing. From her, they also gained a solid base in music theory. Under her tutelage, both advanced easily (or so it seemed to me the parent) in the annual merit certificate exams. With seven years difference in age, each son had very different needs. Laima had the 'just right' approach for both of them. Gentle, supportive, but also clear with her expectations, she worked with them through ups and downs in their own commitment and effort. She also created wonderful opportunities for them to perform. Both continue to play to this day, with my youngest considering music as a possible career. We were sorry that she moved out of our area in 2012. I recommend her highly!"

My son has improved tremendously since taking piano lessons from Ms.Bandong.She is very pateint and has used clever ways to inspire a child to want to learn and show interest in music.I consider her a great help. My son recently had a recital he performed at and did exceptionally well thanks to his instructor Ms.Bandong.He is very eager to learn when he goes home and very motivated to practice.
I would greatly recommend this instructor to anyone who wants to learn to play the piano or has a child interested in taking lessons and the piano. Thanks alot for all of your help Ms.Bandong."

"Piano lessons

Ryan is amazing with our 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. His level of patience in teaching such a young age group really shows. The lessons are fun and age appropriate. He manages to keep their attention and teach them at the same time. My daughter loves when he lets her compose her own silly sings, not knowing that while having fun she is actually learning the piano. And my son who struggles with attention is able to complete the lesson and retain what he has learned because of Ryan's methods.
Ryan is also very professional, timely and flexible with our schedule."

Mr. Cooper is very patient with the student and stresses on learning the correct technique while playing the piano. He is very respectful and encouraging and sets goals for the student to achieve along the way. He pays attention to very small details and works with the student till they master each piece.
