My first violin lesson ever went great. Michael is very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely recommend!
Morgan M.
Michael is such a great instructor! I was worried about re-starting violin lessons as an adult but after speaking with him those worries went out the window. He is very kind, patient, and gives very helpful and constructive feedback during lessons. He seems to tailor lessons and music style to each student and gives lots of great exercises and homework/practice!

He's also very on top of scheduling and understanding when things come up (like an injured wrist). Very enthusiastic and passionate about music - I would highly recommend him as an instructor for any age!
Abel G.
Great instructor! Michael has a great attitude and is clearly very talented. He is willing to adjust the curriculum in order to accommodate my specific needs/ weaknesses. Balances core exercises, scales (including note reading homework), and music playing. We've already started playing songs together which really helps me hear the notes better!

"Andrew is one of the most helpful and genuine instructor I have ever experienced, in my 12 years of playing the trumpet. He not only has helped me develop better, but he helped me understand rhythms and articulations. Additionally, he provides various techniques and exercises that stretch beyond just the instrument itself. Overall, the effort that he puts into his work shows how special of a teacher this man is."

"Eric is a professional career musician who composes, records, and tours. I've taken lessons with him for the past eight months. He teaches everything you'd need to know as a player to improvise and go on to write your own music. Furthermore, he works from his students perception of genres of music, artists, and songs, that are interesting to them - so you will always be playing something that excites you."

"Yana is a wonderful teacher

I was a bit hesitant of enrolling my daughter in lessons because of the expense not only for the lessons but I knew piano lessons meant a piano or keyboard would also need to be purchased. Yana is so great with her, she has given her a love and better understanding of music. Yana is very patient and a great teacher, she understands my daughter very well and challenges her without crushing her spirits. I highly recommend her, this has been worth every penny!"
