Even though I am a novice, she taught me from reading notes to how to appreciate music by explaining very well. But I had to do what I had to do, HW and practice!!!

I will strongly recommend her to anyone.
Suuny Han
Honestly, Gina was a strict teacher and great teacher at the same time. I had to practice a lot, but it was really rewarding experience. She is very patient and guided me to understand how profound classical piano is. My playing technique improved significantly.

I would strongly recommend Gina to anyone who wants to improve!

I have a PhD in music theory from Indiana University and have taught nearly the entire undergraduate theory sequence. For 2 of the 6 years teaching music theory at IU, I designed and taught my own honors sophomore theory class. I also taught keyboard skills, sight singing, and ear training. I additionally have a master's in piano performance.

About Nikolas

I have a doctorate in music theory that I earned from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. While there, I taught a majority of the undergraduate music theory courses. I also have a master's degree in piano performance that I earned at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. I have be

Great piano teacher with lots of patience! Our boys have taken from Nik and have learned how to become independent at figuring out difficult music concepts in order to become life long piano players. Nik is always so patient and encouraging.
Sidney
Amazing teacher, teaches music theories and great at understanding your mistakes. If you have a question about anything he would take time to chat with you to explain!
Kate
Nik has been teaching my younger brother and I for a while now, and I believe that he is a great teacher to work with. He helped my brother, who had no prior experience at playing piano, learn at a surprisingly rapid pace. Nik is a very patient person but definitely does not waste time. I can also see that he is very passionate in this field and likes to teach us more than just reading and playing. He slips in some music theory here and there and also tries to help us understand music at a deeper level, which is very interesting. He always keeps the mood up at every lesson, and I could see that he would be great with younger kids as well. We are about to try online lessons with him for the first time this week, so we’ll see how that goes.

I started working with Mona at Oberlin College Conservatory, and continued working with her through video chat during the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders. She was basically my first private instructor, and she really helped me a lot. I'd gotten as far as I could with self-teaching and poor public school music programs, and was doing my best to keep up with the Oberlin Arts and Sciences Orchestra. She managed to help me work on my challenging orchestra music while instructing me on foundational technique (such as bow control, sound quality, and hand form) that I missed out on when I first started playing. She was always friendly and flexible, and gave out a good ratio of praise and critique. I'm going to miss her at Oberlin next year!

"Where do I begin? Christine is a woman with a voice, not only will you learn proper singing and the fundamentals of music. But she will encourage you to dream and think BIG. I have such respect for Ms. Christine and her love for music, that I tell everyone I meet, to take lessons with Ms. Christine.

If you truly want a teacher who cares about you and your musical dreams, then you NEED to take lessons with Ms. Christine. She has taught me and my Day Care children so much about music education, I will forever be grateful to her talents. Thanks you so much Ms. Christine!

For anyone reading this review.....all I can say is BOOK NOW!!!!"

"Kareem is a dedicated and diligent musician and teacher. He is able to share his love of music with students of all ages. Not only is he extremely capable of teaching students the technical aspects of music, but his lessons incorporate a wider perspective as well, such as, listening to different genres of music and asking his students to discuss what they hear. He is always positive and encourages students to do their best. He has style and class and it is a privilege that two of my children can study under his tutelage."

"Amazing vocal teacher, would reccomend to anybody looking to improve their voice! No matter what standard you are at, she probably has a thing or two!

I took lessons with Rachelle for a year and a half, and it improved my vioce immeasurably from when I started! She has so much experience, knowledge about how to be professional, and took great care, even outside of lesson times, making sure that I learned to my full potential. The only reason I didn't keep taking lessons was because I'd moved away from where she was teaching, and she had moved down to L.A. from Canada. I would really reccomend Rachelle for any level of vocalist, from begginer, to fully fledged professional, she will always have something to teach you. She has a world class voice, and she knows how you can get there too!"

"Tania has been so amazing. We have only had one in home session before the COVID-19 restrictions came about. She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful. My daughter is 6, and her attention span is not the greatest. I really appreciate Tania's patience and ability to keep her focused and engaged."
