My parents had me take piano lessons since I was five years old, and it's stayed with me ever since. Having taken lessons throughout grade school, I now make use of my free time learning new songs and playing regularly. In my lessons, my enthusiasm and appreciation for the instrument come through to inspire students to learn and enjoy piano for themselves, not just because they're being told to learn. I've worked with kids of all ages in various activities (coaching, tutoring, camp) and know how to work well with them and to get them self-motivated, which is the ultimate goal of any instructor.

About David

As a current graduate student at Boston College I'm looking to help support myself and what better way than to be part of the community and share my love of piano, tennis, philosophy, and the English language with others! Having taken piano lessons throughout grade school, I'm well versed

Bgcheck Background Checked


Being 16 and playing piano and taking lessons for 11 years, and having it integrated into most of my life, has given me an appreciation for the piano, that I'm not sure anything else could. I adore the piano and everything about it! I won't lie, it takes work. But what doesn't? I've been teaching piano for a little over three years now, and it's one of my favorite things to do!

About Leah

I am 16 years old and a member of the Missouri Philharmonic Orchestra, and the principle cellist in the Play and Sing His Praises Homeschool Orchestra, where I also get to have the pleasure of being able to teach children and adults an instrument, when they otherwise might not have had a chance.

My daughter just had her first lesson with Nikita! She feels like she learned more from him in her first lesson than she has learned in the last couple years. She can’t wait for her next lesson!

Truly a privilege getting instruction from Nikita! His patience and knowledge are endless; he is a natural teacher; so blessed for my son who has difficulty focusing to receive lessons from Nikita!

This is my second review.

My son has been taken from Nikita for 7 months now. What a difference the months has made! My son is enjoying the instrument more and more, he's more confident in making good sounds, and the best of all, from Nikita he's learning how to be mindful when playing.

Nikita simply is the best.

I just recently started with Dee. She is doing a great job of helping me realistically assess my performance, and constructively set goals to improve the aspects that need work. It's been fun and very helpful.

Our 8 year old son had his first Guitar lesson with Dee this past weekend, and she was amazing. She wasted no time getting down to brass tacks with our son, showing him the various parts of the guitar, how to hold it and within minutes he knew two chords. She was able to keep our kiddo engaged, offered great praise and positive feedback/reinforcement and kept him on task for the entire 45 minute lesson. We could not be happier and cannot wait to see what he learns during his next lessons with her!

Piano should be fun! I've taught for 10 years all ages and abilities. We choose songs that student is interested in a. Any genre that he/she is passionate about. I include some exercises and theory based around the songs we are working on. This makes it easier to memorize , read and understand music. It is like reading notes as words rather than a jumble of dots. I love jazz and classical and have toured domestically/internationally with pop acts.

About David

Classical, Jazz, Pop, R&B. Anything you are interested in! I include a variety of activities during the lesson that help keep it engaging and develop a complete understanding of the piece. This includes some light ear training, theory and exercises which can all be tapered to ability and repertoire

"I have been studying with Ahmad for more than half a year now and it's been a great experience! Coming from wind instrument, my understanding of chords is seriously lacking. Ahmad addressed all my questions step by step. He's patient and motivating! If you live in the bay area and want to learn guitar, Ahmad is your best friend and teacher!"

"Wow, there are those that have the gift and born to teach. I'm so impress with Mark. He was so patient with me and explained and demonstrated how the piece should be played. He also provided great tips on how to improve my playing. I'm glad I had him as my music teacher. My progress was so rapid, of course it just wasn't his teaching. It also came from my hard work as well but the combination of his coaching and tips pave the way for my improvement. Thank you, thank you Mark."

In just a short amount oftime with her advice and guidance I already can hear a difference and feel a better tone coming out. Plus she's very kind, supportive, and easy going."

"Tom is a great drum instructor. He took an active interest in the music I liked during the very first interest, and when I came back for the second lesson he had taken the time to listen to all of the bands that I mentioned. I wasn't really expecting that and it showed me that he really wanted to tailor the lessons towards what I listen to.

He teaches out of his house, with two drum sets and full electronics setup for other things as well. It really helps when both you and him can play something at the same time, compared to other places where there is only one drum set available.

I would highly recommend Tom to anyone interested in learning how to play the drums."
