I encourage students to find the sounds they like and really connect with and work backwards from there to teach them the fundamentals they will need to fall more in love with the music they create. I'm a firm believer that the music you create is an extension of yourself, so learning the basics should be fun and encouraging for the student to want to dive deeper on their own. With my lessons we will discover what works for you and design a personalized lesson plan to get you on your way to flowing with music.

About Kevin

I grew up learning the piano, guitar, and other instruments throughout my childhood. Now I've taken my focus and put it into playing live electronic music in a band. After college, and working for a couple years, I bought an RV, remodeled it, and traveled around making music for 2 years. Now I

My daughter is 8 and she has been taking piano lesson with Ms Lana since March this year. We are sooo happy with how she is progressing and playing beautifully thanks to Ms Lana's wonderful teaching, patient and caring manner!!! We would definitely recommend to any friends who want to learn piano.
Nia N.
Lana is very nice and professional my daughter was very happy to learn from her:)
Jessica
A few years ago, I moved from Ohio to Florida and was concerned about finding a new piano teacher. To my disappointment, after trying two teachers, I was still left looking for a better one. That's when I had the pleasure of meeting Lana. Lana has reinforced my knowledge of music theory, challenged my technical skills, and most importantly improved my overall ability to play. Through Lana's various teaching techniques and exercises, I have never played better and or had more enthusiasm to keep learning!

Bass lessons consist of proper technique, classic rock bass lines, and sight reading.

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of re

Learning to sing with Steve has been a wonderful experience. He is friendly and welcoming and I left every lesson feeling accomplished. I came to Steve having no experience with vocal training at all and I'm so glad I did! Great teacher. He is patient and happy to teach. Thank you!

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

About Grant

I took lessons about 40 years ago from other teachers, not sure what I was expecting. However Geoff far exceeded whatever they were. Very knowledgeable, an excellent teacher.
Jay
My son had a great first lesson with Geoff. He was kind and patient but also very knowledgeable.

"I'm a late starter (62, recently retired physician) to the incredibly complex instrument, and I genuinely believed it was impossible to become proficient enough to enjoy the piano the way I envisioned. Having Mr. Ma as my mentor revealed an entire world of musical expression I did not realize existed. His ability to explain and execute surreal concepts is astounding, revealing musical secrets with comprehensive ease. I struggled to learn piano with previous mentors who treated the craft more as sport and exercise than art; Mr. Ma has re-instilled my passion for the arts, focusing on expression, color, and story-telling. His experience as a rising concert pianist on the world's foremost stages gives him perspective that the majority of mentors simply don't have. I would recommend him to any person who struggled to make progress or maintain interest with purely physical, repetitive tasks. I look forward to my lessons every week, and even recently decided to purchase a wonderful concert grand piano for myself to further explore the classical repertoire."

How to Set Up a Violin Bridge | Violin Tips

There's one important - and slightly intimidating - hurdle that all violin students have in common. Whether you're a complete beginner looking to make a cheap, factory-made instrument more grateful to play, or a more advanced student wanting to customize your "forever" instrument to suit you and you alone, the basic knowledge of how to set up a violin is worth grasping even if your interest doesn't extend much beyond curiosity and a love of tinkering with things. As you're probably aware, the b …
