I had to pass ear training for my composition degrees, and it didn't come naturally! So I know the pressure that needing to pass this skill to support your other music studies can bring. But I came through ear training more enthusiastic and insightful about music than ever before. And so will you.

My 5 year old takes classes with her. She is a very shy and anxious child. Ms Paniyeva has been very patient and accommodating. She can read and play in 5 months. I can’t believe her progress. I think we were very lucky to find her. My daughter calls her always Smiling.
Beverly
I'm satisfied with the lessons I took, even though seven months of piano still not enough.
Beverly
I learned a lot in seven months with Liana. I was pleased to have her, but I'm still slow. I think I need six months more in order to gain enough speed. Anyway, Liana is a good instructor to start with. She encourages and leaves you with no fear.

"It has been a pleasure having Yoon Jae as a teacher. He took a very personalized approach with my ear training, developing a solid idea of my strengths and weaknesses before honing in on specific issues. What sets him apart is that he's adamant about reinforcing the musical applications of the skills I'm developing, and he challenges me in ways that never feel dry or superfluous. I've seen great improvement in the relatively short time I've been with him."

"If you are aurally challenged when it comes to intervals and harmonic progressions, I definitely recommend tutoring. Michelle was very patient during our lessons and had different tips on how to identify certain progressions, which I appreciated. We also worked on complex rhythms together. It was actually really fun. She's very kind, resourceful, and an excellent tutor."

She takes into account my aims and goals as she develops effective lessons to reach those goals. Her music methods are up to date, as she matches the music to my preferred tastes. As she challenges me to reach my potential, she also allows for flexibility In order to meet my needs. I have also observed her working with very young children as well as young adults with the same satisfying results. I am very pleased and I recommend Barbara as the answer to your search for a piano instructor !"

"Rachel is an extremely wonderful teacher and vocalist. I mainly sing Musical Theatre but have a background in Classical. When I feel like I'm beginning to develop unhealthy singing habits, I usually go back to my classical roots. So finding a teacher with experience in both Musical Theatre and Classical voice is extremely important to me. Rachel really focuses on the technique and finds a way to describe it and apply it in terms her students understand. I highly recommend her whether you have a background Musical Theatre, Classical, both, or more. She'll get you singing with a healthy voice in no time!"
