Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

I've played piano almost as long as my primary instrument, bass. In college I had to take an extensive path of courses to make sure I was skilled at sight reading classical piano. I also became quite familiar with composition, chord reading, and proper technique.

About Quentin

I go to the University of Georgia for Double Bass Performance. I've spent about 9 years learning and sharing everything I can about this wonderfully complex instrument. So many genres of music can be played on the double bass, and once you add my secondary instrument, the bass guitar, you're a nece

Sofia was wonderful teacher. she was very punctual and my child liked her bright and fun personality. She taught piano very well considering young child’s age and providing relaxed and flexible method rather than traditional way with tension. We liked her but her schedule didn’t work with us so we had to let her go unfortunately.
P.S. Sofia, thank you for teaching my child her first piano lessons and we wish you the very best luck for your future~!
Yuchen/Annie
An accountable and professional teacher. First, the course set is rational. Sophia usually chooses appropriate pieces which match with the actual level of me. For example, the difficulty level is step by step, which makes me confident and very willing to have classes each time. In addition, she is also good at perceiving my lost points, and is patient to give me efficient direction on how to do better! Really hope more students can reach her out, and explore your own potential on music!

Ben has character attributes one would like to find in a teacher, knowledge, patience and presence! Looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Ben!

Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

"Ms. Alla is teaching my elder son classical piano for about two years now. She is the finest teacher my son can get. She does not only focus on piano lessons but also the aesthetics like seating posture, hand position etc. I will highly recommend Ms. Alla if anyone is interested to learn serious piano with strong foundation. Her teachings will stay for life."

"Ruth is a fantastic piano teacher. She is very patient and tailors her instruction to the age and capabilities of each child. Our 6yo daughter has been taking lessons with Ruth for a year and loves it, and we've really been amazed at how quickly she has advanced. Ruth is a perfect blend of kindness, patience, and a rigorous and strong training program. We are always impressed with the quality of the performances of Ruth's students (whose ages range from about 5-16) at the annual concert that she organizes. Ruth also teaches adults! If you are in the Princeton/Plainsboro area and looking for piano lessons, we highly recommend Ruth!"
