Do you want to study with an award-winning artist-teacher who has performed all over the world, and whose students have won countless local, national and international competitions? I accept students of all starting levels, as these change and grow quickly under my tutelage. My goal is to have each student reach their full potential, which is usually much greater than they believe.

Svetlana has been teaching my son, who’s 10 years old, for 3 years. She’s kind and very knowledgeable. My son loves going to his lessons and looks forward to it every week. Svetlana teaches him musical theory, scales, and classical pieces and he has thrived with her instruction. Last year, he won a silver medal at the Sonatina competition! I highly recommend Svetlana as a piano teacher.

Ms Belsky has a unique ability to analyze a student's current pianistic situation and to guide them toward a deeper understanding of the best technique for achieving a more expressive performance. She has a deep knowledge of the history and performance practices of each musical style. She is generous in her observations, comments and suggestions.

Fernando was fantastic with my 14 year old son. He asked what type of music he wanted to play to keep him engaged. He had a great 45 minute lesson with him. Fernando is passionate about violin and it shows. Looking forward to continuing with Fernando! Highly recommend him!

I have taught Flute and Recorder over a decade in both personal and classroom settings. Several of my students have gone on to achieve gold medals in their solo and ensemble contests, and place within the IMA music competition.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a stronger, more supported sound and as time goes on you'll be able to expand your range beyond what you thought possible. I specialize in working with beginners, and have experience working with students new to braces, as well. Typically, I use the Rubank Flute Method book in addition to your school's band books.

As far as what age to start flute, I am firm in starting a student no earlier than the spring/summer before their 4th grade year of schooling. This is not to say that a child could not begin learning music earlier, but the arm length required to play flute is necessary to achieve success.

For recorders, I use various method books and pull from many additional pop song books as well. ...

Waldemar is the best guitar teacher, ever!!! I've improved so much since I started taking lessons from him. He's kind and patient, clear when explaining/teaching, and super talented. I love that he's a professional musician and producer, so he definitely knows what he's doing. AND, he's bilingual!!! I've been taking one-on-one lessons in his studio, and some online lessons as well -which work really well, too-, in Spanish!

Waldemar es el mejor maestro de guitarra!!! He mejorado muchísimo desde que comencé a tomar clases con él. Es un maestro amable y paciente, muy claro al explicar, y muy talentoso. Además, es un músico profesional, así q sabe lo que está haciendo. Y es bilingüe!!! Tomo clases en su estudio, y a veces online, en Español!
