Justin is a great piano teacher

My 6 year old has piano lessons with Justin. He enjoys his lessons and I'm a proud mother when I listen to him play. My son is a little talker but Justin is always kind, very patient, and uses relatable examples for him to better understand. He encourages which motivates my son to want to practice more. He is also very polite, never without a friendly smile, and without a doubt loves teaching music. I hope Justin continues teaching music by the time my now 1 year old is old enough to take lessons. My family truly appreciates him.

We are so delighted with our experience with Remi. Our son began lessons when he was a fresh 6 year old. Remi had so much patience and ability to keep him focused on the keys. The progress over the last 18 months has been remarkable. My son is much more confident and no longer prone to dwell on small missteps, He plays right through them and then works to correct them. This is all due to His wonderful teacher. As an aside, it's awesome when my son really plays well and Remi picks up his guitar and accompanies the piano like a real "jam session"

Fantastic first lesson - I was speaking in sentences by the end of our 45 mins - albeit very simple ones - but nevertheless - I am impressed and look forward to getting closer to conversational Dutch. Top marks :-)

At first, I doubted that I could do a piano lesson online but Mr. Raymond erased all my doubt on the very first section with him. He is really good at what he does. I asked him a question and he answered it without any confusion. From his answers, I know he is really knowledgable in music generally, and piano specifically. He is friendly and laid-back but he will make sure you perfectly play your pieces. Take him and you will have no regret!

About James

I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and running quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time. I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very

If you like guitar, you'll like James.

I have had about a dozen lessons so far with James, starting out as a complete beginner, with knowledge of only a few chords. In this short time, I have learned a great deal of theory, practice strategy, playing full songs, and even singing along with a few in time. James has been very hospitable and patient, and I recommend him to anyone who loves the guitar, regardless of skill!
