Corey was a great instructor for my 4th grader. We wanted him to keep up with his clarinet lessons over Summer break. My son gets very easily frustrated when he struggles and Corey handled it all very well, always giving a new suggestion on what he could do to improve. In just 5 short lessons, Corey helped my son with his embouchure, finger placement, tounging and my son was finally able to play his B and C notes. That had really been holding him back from playing lots of music. Highly recommended!

Mr. Ames has been one of my favorite teachers during my time at LA. He is always willing to listen and help his students if they go to him. He is passionate about teaching, his main goal is to help his students succeed in whatever way he can. He always tries to make a fun and worthwhile experience everyone should appreciate the great teacher that he is.
Jacob
Mr. Ames is an amazing teacher! He helped me land a spot in the all district band my freshman year in high school and constantly pushed me to strive and be my best. I highly recommend him for anyone that is looking to have fun and be a better clarinet player.

I am astonished at how my voice has developed working with Michelle and Robert. As a soprano, I had lost so much range. Come to find out, singing incorrectly for about 40 years will do that to you. I had never taken voice lessons prior, so unfortunately, I learned to sing all wrong. Through vocal pedagogy, I now understand healthy and correct singing techniques.
They both have an amazing way of explaining things, and when I have that "a-ha" moment- it is glorious! I've learned more than I ever imagined- I never thought I would ever sing Italian or French! They support exploring different musical styles and genres, and do we ever have fun! It is my weekly therapy, and I am so grateful I found them as my teachers.
I highly recommend them for your mental health, personal development and the pure love of singing.
Hardee
My nine year old son and six year old daughter enjoy learning how to sing with Miss Michelle. I have watched my son and daughter grow from their shyness to becoming more confident performers. It has also inspired my children to become braver with their choices in other areas of their lives. Miss Michelle is a truly gifted teacher who we recommend highly to anyone seeking to become better vocally.
Susan
Michelle and Robert are the most encouraging and inspiring voice instructors. They are very knowledgeable giving great insight and advice. They also have very warm, caring and pleasant dispositions and make you feel very welcome and comfortable. I am so blessed and glad to have them for my voice instructors. They are awesome!

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.
Janet
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.

About Brian

The only thing I've ever wanted to do was play drums. My parents bought me my first drum set at age 6. I've spent my whole life learning how to be good at what I love. I still study and practice almost every day, but now I pass my knowledge on to others. If you want to see one of my early students

Brian is amazing! I've personally seen many of his student's go on and achieve big things. His ability to relate and teach, gives you the tools and confidence to make your music goals/dreams come true. Highly recommend!
Alex
Brian taught drums to me for probably four or five years, and it was seriously great. I always looked forward to having lessons with him because I knew I'd learn a lot and most importantly it would be fun. I don't take lessons anymore but I still think about many of the things he taught me when I sit down to practice. He definitely helped shape me into the drummer I am today and I'm proud to say he taught me.
Rachel
Brian was my son’s first drum teacher. He was amazing! Ethan really learned the basics of how to play and enjoy the drums. We wish Brian lived closer so we could continue to have him as a teacher.
