Alex is an awesome teacher, very knowledgeable and focused on details. He goes at the perfect pace so I don't feel overwhelmed. I've browsed YouTube for Ableton lessons, and it feels chaotic to learn this way. Ableton can be intimidating, but Alex organizes the information and presents the information is a digestible way. Our lessons cover the perfect amount of information.

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

Bonjour et Enchanté

My name is Fabrice and I am excited that you are considering French lessons with me.

French is not just a beautiful language, it is a culture and people rich in Liberté, Egalité, and Fraternité. With all of my students, we not only explore the richness of the language but also the expansiveness and depth of the culture, people, and of course the country.

I am confident in my ability to help you learn French in easy and fun lessons. I have helped students of all ages, most of whom have little to no experience with the language. Today, many of these, same, students are well versed in conversational French and able to read, write, speak, and explore the language and culture in ways they didn’t imagine. I have also worked with students who have a good understanding of the language and wish to brush-up on their skills or work to perfect the language as a native speaker.

I apply numerous strategies that will depend on how you like to learn, however, I ...

Fabrice is an excellent tutor for my two young boys, very patient, playful and with a clear plan for each lesson. He is super accommodating as far as schedule goes and did I mention patient.. oh I did. :) It is worth repeating! We will definitely be continuing and are grateful to have found him! Merci Fabrice !

Fabrice is the ultimate French teacher. He’s a native speaker who brings, not only language, but wonderful tidbits of French culture to learning experience. He has geared tutoring sessions to meet my needs and interests. He is knowledgeable, interesting and funny. You won’t be disappointed!
Jon
I started taking French lessons with Fabrice three years ago when I was planning a trip to France to visit my in-law’s. After about three weeks, I had the confidence and basic language skills to feel comfortable speaking to native French speakers. About one month before my trip, I was speaking French pretty much fluently. Fabrice is personable, kind and very passionate about teaching French. His strategies, weekly challenges and attention to detail really have made this an enjoyable experience that I have continued with him for the past 3 years. Merci beaucoup Fabrice for being an awesome, qualified and competent French teacher. I recommend Fabrice without hesitation.

a teacher who is not only good at teaching
his/her subject, but whose positive attitude
toward the students makes them love learning
from him/her. Elsa is that kind of teacher. She is patient and caring...attentive and demanding. These are important characteristics for a language teacher, and in Elsa’s case her subject is French. As a student of Elsa, I felt very comfortable learning with her guidance. Sincerely, Peggy"

"I had the pleasure of learning higher intermediate/conversational French with Philippe last year for several weeks. I must say that he was the best French professor I ever had. He was extremely meticulous with his approach and took the time to understand my strengths and weaknesses and curated the course based on that. He understood that there were days when I was finding the right words and would take the lead in our conversations. Whereas, other days, he would let me lead the discussions. We discussed on topics related to politics, society, religion, science, travel and business. He was extremely polite, and professional and didn't impose any of his beliefs and stayed true to his goal of helping me improve my French skills. By the end of our session, I was able to make a presentation of my work in international development and global health with him in French. He even helped me translate my poem in French. In addition to providing me with the ears to understand spoken French better, and the ability to speak more correctly, he also immensely helped with grammar topics such as subjunctive, future, and conditional sentences. I provide my highest recommendation of Philippe and assure you that he will make your French learning experience the one to remember."

How Much Do French Lessons Cost?

If you want to learn how to speak French, you probably already know that the best way to learn is by practicing speaking French.
