Mr. Eddie
We would like to express our gratitude for all your kindness and time spent with our daughter. She made her first music steps with you and now she can get rid of the piano.
She enjoyed working with you while your teaching methods help her be able to play complex songs.
We recommend teacher Nevena without reservation to everyone who would passionately like to dive into music.

Just took my first lesson (I am a beginner) with Ari and he was easy to work with; really friendly; totally understands my goals and is not judgmental. I am really looking forward to working with Ari as I think I'll achieve my goals of learning to play the guitar without a lot of mental strain. I give Ari totally 5+ stars!!
Isabella
First lesson with Avi was great! I have been playing guitar for about 6 months self-taught and could feel myself plateauing, in need of a teacher. He made things really easy by listening to what I want to improve upon and learn, immediately giving some useful tips on things I had been struggling with, and going over what we could do to achieve my goals. He's very good at explaining things in a way that is clear and doesn't make them seem intimidating, even if it's something I typically have a hard time with. Also, it was a great mix of physical guitar stuff (such as helping me improve barre chords), basic theory to begin with (such as how to form a chord), and also breaking down mental barriers which had previously kept me intimidated by songwriting. I am already much more confident and ready to try new things! Overall, if you are looking to improve at guitar or start for the first time, I recommend Avi.
Theresa
Avi works with my 8 year old son once a week. He is prompt, friendly and my son looks forward to seeing Avi every week. My husband and I could not be happier with this experience.

I teach beginning theory through more advanced students, focusing on classical music.

About Roberta

Flutist, Roberta M., is equally at home playing classical and new music. I Care If You Listen has extolled her “lush, full tones… even among the best professionals, not many flute players sound so compelling in a lower register.” Praising her “extreme adventurousness,” New York Concert Review said

Jim H.
Roberta was patient and was obviously an experienced teacher. I teach and I understand what it takes to put a lesson together so that the student gets the most out of it, while pushing the student to do better, but not too much to discourage them from moving forward. She hits that sweet spot! I would recommend her to anyone who was serious about learning.

she has got a very lovely and cheerful personality.It made me really want to practice more piano even though i haven't played it for months.

"Albino is an amazing teacher and musician. He has the ability to inspire you musically and make you feel very comfortable while doing it. He has taught me many new approaches, tips, and tricks to music theory. He has helped me to be able to really understand why things are the way they are, and not just figure things out on paper like an equation. Definitely the best tutor I've ever had! I'd highly recommend him."

She also helped me understand how to write melodies using some intervals and was very positive and complimentary about this. She was also very positive and complimentary in critiquing a transcription that I wrote. I am learning a lot with Mimi and she is very inspiring. Definitely several points above average!:)"

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."
