Learn the fundamentals of singing! I focus on the importance of posture and breathing for singing. Violin, viola, and voice lessons combine music fundamentals with artistic expression to create a rewarding learning experience.

About Rachel

From about the age of 5, I can remember always running to my Grandmother's piano whenever we went to visit and being completely in awe of all it could do. At the age of 7, I began studying the viola. Always active in Chorus and Orchestra both in school and outside organizations, my love for music

My 11 yr. old son takes piano lessons with Ms. Rachel. Her lessons are engaging and productive. He enjoys the learning process and I am so happy to see him progressing so well. One of Rachel's main strengths is her ability to convey a given subject matter in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood. Rachel's unparalleled enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her singing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many different styles. She's reliable, experienced, professional, and a great person all around.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I really enjoy my students and listen to them to understand how best they learn. The Piano Adventures books and I offer music kids are happy to play, music that encourages good technique from the beginning and builds valuable note reading skills. Together we explore supplementary books that offer popular music, jazz, classics, Disney favorites and more depending on the student's interests.Theory opens lots of creative possibilities on the keys and composing.
My students and I have a good time together and welcome the challenges that learning piano brings.

About Arden

As a life-long pianist, I was lucky to be able to pursue my passion of teaching piano full-time after my children went off to college. I have enjoyed teaching professionally for the past 10 years. I teach elementary and secondary education students the finer points of piano theory, performance

Miss Arden was our 3 children's piano teacher for 6 years and was an amazing teacher! We were so lucky to have found her when we moved to Miami. She is the most patient, kind and sweetest teacher who has taught our children a gift that they will cherish forever. They always looked forward to their weekly lessons and especially the holiday and end of the year recitals which Miss Arden made so special. She was also very flexible with changing lesson times if there was a conflict. Our kids loved having her as their piano teacher and we truly miss her!
We highly recommend Miss Arden for your teacher!!

Arden was my daughter's piano teacher for 4 years and she was amazing! She was extremely patient and encouraging. My daughter truly looked forward to her weekly piano lessons with Arden and was very disappointed when Arden moved away.

We used Arden when she lived in Miami to teach piano to both of my daughters. She is kind, compassionate and has an infectious love of piano. She was patient with both of them and flexible with our schedules. She knew exactly how to praise them for practicing and encourage them when they missed a week. Anyone would be lucky to have Arden as their piano teacher!

Andrew has taught a wide range of students from young (and adult) beginners to advanced university students. His teacher training, education, and playing experience has taught him that good cello playing should not only sound great, but feel natural as well. Because of this, he stresses the physical elements of cello playing in connection with a strong technical foundation, as well as the development of each student's ear and individual sense of musicality.

About Andrew

Andrew began playing cello in the public school system. He earned his Bachelor of Music summa cum laude from Arizona State University, where he studied with Thomas Landschoot, and his Master of Music with distinction from DePaul University with former assistant principal of the Chicago Symphony Ste

Andrew is incredibly professional and patient. He's great at communicating with the parent and the student. He is very patient and even-keeled which worked wonders with my anxiety-prone son. Andrew has inspired him to achieve more than we ever thought possible and more importantly has instilled the gift of a life long passion in the cello. Highly recommend.

Andrew is calm and very patient teacher. I started the cello from a scratch with him and now I can play scales and some pieces. He plays beautifully and he knows what has to be done to improve my cello playing. I will recommend Andrew for anyone who wishes to play the cello!

I guarantee that within 4 lessons, we will be playing full songs together. I am an experienced teacher of 5 years. I teach guitar, piano, and ukulele. I began my teaching career at Guitar Center in Dallas, successfully teaching over 30 students weekly. All students are encouraged to be the best musicians they can. I have a strong growth mentality that gives students the motivation to learn. Students are then given tools to succeed. I have formulated my own teaching style to make learning music easier. I am comfortable teaching all ages and levels of knowledge. Lessons are tailored to the goals of each student. Together, we will be building an understanding of note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and sight reading. You will learn, but we will have fun.

About Michael

Michael is very extroverted and laid back. All of his students have been very comfortable as he uses encouragement to drive the interest in learning an instrument. Michael is an accomplished musician. He has performed and instructed for several years in the Dallas area. From the time he was seven,

If I could give Brian 10 stars, I would. He is enthusiastic, present, supportive and highly knowledgeable. Learning instruments has always been a challenge for me , but Brian makes being a banjo beginner an absolute joy. I look forward to practicing every day, and can really hear my progress - which amazes me because it's only been just over a month. I can see myself working with Brian for the long haul. He puts me at ease, and always gives great responsive tips that improve my playing immediately. I feel SO lucky to have stumbled across his profile.

"Tina has provided our daughter 11 year old daughter with outstanding lessons as a beginning trumpet player this past summer! Not only was our daughter able to skip beginning band and be placed into the more advance concert band with the 1st trumpets, she received an invite from her well known director of bands to participate in the school’s Big Band. Our daughter is quickly improving on her playing skills.
Tina will always be remembered as the primary influence behind her aspirations to play the trumpet the right way!"

"Great teacher. He was my music theory tutor, and I was able to skip past two college theory courses within about a week of hour-long tutoring sessions.

From my experience, he works with what you have: he finds your strengths and helps you to learn based on how he believes you'll best receive new information or inspiration. He is able to communicate concepts in many different ways, and always makes sure you understand. He is not long-winded, but communicates the necessary information in a way that is straight-to-the-point, and does not waste time giving his students "busy work," but instead gives them exercises that are directly or indirectly helpful every time. He is a patient teacher, and does not make you feel like you will be left behind. He passionate about teaching and his students, and he does a great job at teaching."
