Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!

I offer students instruction in Music Theory at all levels (from Beginner to Advanced). My Music Theory Tutoring lessons help to not only explain the theory of how music is composed but also will help to inspire how to better understand how theory is implemented into a song or piece. While many Music Theory tutors are heavily mathematical-focused, I take a holistic approach explaining how the technical aspects of a song or piece are used to convey emotional and expressive aspects, while still teaching Music Theory's technical details.

Jean-Louis has been working with my son for a few sessions. He has done a great job working with the type of music my son wants to work on as well as providing him useful feedback on improving his singing. He also helped him to work on a chord to play alongside his song. Highly recommend!

I really enjoy taking saxophone lessons with Ana. She is extremely knowledgeable in topics related to saxophone, jazz, and improvisation. Her lessons are very organized, intellectually stimulating, and she provides just the right amount of structure while allowing me the space to develop my own creative ideas. I highly recommend taking a lesson with her. You’ll thank me later!
Christine
I have played clarinet for 5 years now and am working on music for solo pieces and band class. Ana gives me lots of material to work on and I am feeling more confident about my playing!
Amanda D.
I'm a classically-trained flutist and have been taking Jazz improv and theory lessons with Ana for four months. I have learned so much from her - she has opened my eyes to jazz and made it fun and approachable. The lessons have given me a deeper appreciation when listening to jazz, improved my listening skills, and made me a better player. I never thought I would be able to do improv, and after a few weeks of lessons it came very easily to me. I highly recommend Ana to anyone who wants to learn jazz improv, regardless of what instrument they play!

"Kevin is an excellent guitar player! I’ve had a few jam sessions with him at his studio playing the keys as he played guitar and drums. He taught me some chords on the guitar and I picked them up so easily. I thought immediately, “This guys knows what he’s doing!” He plays Guitar, Bass, and Drums, and I definitely recommend learning from him."

"Susan's instruction and mentorship has been transformational for my daughter's evolution as a classical pianist. The depth of articulation in her performance and the musicality in her playing she owes to Susan. Susan not only teaches with real dedication, but she also inspires her students to reach and keep attaining new heights in their piano performance. She demands commitment from her students, but is always encouraging and ensures her students gain confidence and a strong foundation in music education. Susan has extensive experience in teaching and her students do very well in piano competitions."

"I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!"
