Ezra has been an excellent instructor for my daughter over the past few years. She has grown from a fledgling beginner to a confident young player, gaining skill and confidence as well as an appreciation for music. Ezra balances encouragement with high expectations that help her to improve. I would highly recommend lessons with Ezra to anyone looking to gain proficiency and joy in playing the piano!
Doreen
Ezra has challenged my 13-year-old son over the last 2 years! We are so pleased with the progress our son has made with a variety of piano pieces - classical as well as "popular." He has kept our son actively playing and progressing impressively with his piano skills! He communicates with parents frequently, and he connects and understands how to tap into a student's potential! We have been impressed with his teachings! Highly recommend him!
Linda
Our son Henry (8) has taken piano lessons from Ezra for the last few years. During that time, he has progressed from playing basic notes to playing real music and developing an appreciation for piano. Ezra is the perfect mix of firm & fun + encouraging & educational. His love of music and commitment to sharing his knowledge with others is apparent. Henry is lucky to have him as a teacher.

I’m not usually one to write reviews but Jeff is such a great teacher. He really helped to develop my playing to where now I consider myself a confident bassist. His style of teaching not only helped me to be a better bassist, but also helped me internalize musical concepts that will help me for the rest of my life. I strongly recommend Jeff if you are looking for someone to really take you to the next level!

I have really enjoyed taking drum lessons with Johnny Rabb. He is not only a highly accomplished and talented musician, but a phenomenal teacher as well. As an older adult student who has studied with other teachers, I find Johnny's teaching style to be very engaging, creative and fun. His style allows him to challenge his students, but not overwhelm them as they progress with their lessons. I highly recommend Johnny for any student who is looking to take their playing to the next level!

Just wanted to update my review after taking a few lessons with Kristin. In addition to providing great yoga instruction, she's also been sharing these incredible explanations of how my body works (or isn't working right) that clearly come from a deep understanding of science and the structure of the human body. It is amazing to be able to both connect with the body and to understand how it works physiologically at the same time!

Kristin is incredibly skilled at Yoga - helping my form and deepening my understanding fo Yoga. I'm recommending her to everyone!

My daughter started a series of lessons with Kristen in preparation of her high school play audition. It was very clear that Kristen is extremely knowledgeable of all technical aspects of singing & able to clearly communicate. My daughter really enjoyed her initial lesson w/ Kristen & is confident that she will be well prepared for her school’s play auditions.

"I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy."

"Ben is a PRO. Our lessons are the most fruitful I've ever taken. First, let me say that I have been studying voice for 15 years. I have performed on stage and in recital many times over the years. To prepare me for my performances I have had voice lesson teachers from the ages of 21-73 and this man leaves them all in a trail of musical pixie dust.

I started taking lessons with Ben in January 2014 because I wanted to keep my voice in shape as I hadn't performed in over a year. (Use it or lose it!!!) Our lessons began with broadening my range (as an alto I always fear my upper register). After learning all the wonderful vocal exercises, we move on to repertoire. I brought him various pieces of broadway and secular music. There are a few that we go over just so I can learn specific ways to sing words so that the vowel is perfect and there are others that help me learn more of the Idina Menzel qualities I would like to discover in my own voice. When it came time for auditions, Ben helped me find new ways to perform an old piece that freshened and revived it!

Every lesson I walk away with something new I have learned about my voice and about the art of music itself. Ben's passion for the human voice is evident in his teachings. Many of his reviews state his patience and professionalism and I agree. I feel so confident when I leave his studio! Whether you are looking to take voice lessons for the first time, or you are a seasoned performer, Ben's your guy."

He did not ask me to buy more lesson books, but used the ones I brought from a previous class - which I appreciated. He says that if I stick to the plan, I'll be playing Maple Leaf Rag in two months.

5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano

Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha …
