I'm a new student.

I recently started taking piano lessons for the first time at the age of 65. Pierre has been very encouraging and patient. He has also been very professional, and has even been flexible when my schedule has conflicted with our lessons, allowing me to reschedule when necessary. I am enjoying this very much, and that has much to do with Pierre.

Great teacher!

Pierre is by far the best music teacher I've come across. I used several other teachers before Pierre, and none of them were able to take me to the level Pierre has. He's very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and patient, but best of all, he's a lot of fun. He has the perfect blend of making the lessons challenging and informative, and at the same time enjoyable. His love for music is infectious, and my appreciation for music has grown tremendously since working with him. I can't recommend him enough!

Pierre Rules!

Pierre is the raddest music teacher I've ever had. He's always on time, always prepared, and always ready to have a great time on any instrument. His sense of humor is great and he makes learning even the most difficult songs fun. Since he can play any instrument, you'll always have someone to play along with. He has a deep love for all kinds of music, which is the best quality in a musician, teacher, and drummer. I can't recommend Pierre enough. He's given me the confidence, both musically and personally, to drum in a band, Hearing Damage. THIS DUDE RULES!!!

Becky is awesome. My job takes away most of my time and because of that I haven't been able to be very regular in attending all sessions. She had been very patient with me and adjusted the pace as needed for a student like me. She is an enthusiastic teacher and I would recommend Becky as the first guitar teacher for students of all ages. Keep rocking Becky!

Becky is a great teacher!

Becky knows exactly what she's doing, is very reliable, and super nice! I enjoy taking lessons with her very much. She understands what kind of music I like and what I want to learn. Taking lessons with Becky is like learning from a great friend. She is easy to learn from and doesn't rush me or go to slow. I definitely recommend her as a teacher:)

Great teacher. Shes fun and friendly. Ok environment. She has a few cats at her home where she teaches and during one lesson I smelled a foul smell and realized the cat was using the litter box right next to where I was sitting. Kind of gross!

The Perfect Teacher for My Son

Learning the violin is proving to be more challenging than my son anticipated. But, Mary's kind, patient instruction is just the encouragement he needs to keep going week by week.
Susan S. Mission Viejo, CA

About Susan

I have been performing since the age of three. At the age of seven, I began classical vocal lessons. At 8, I wrote the school song for Cherry Creek Elementary School in Marquette, Michigan. When I was 10, I entered and won the Grand Supreme title at my first pageant. When I was 13, I moved my vocal training at the local University becoming the youngest classical vocal student. After years of participating in musical theatre productions, I landed a job in a guitar shop that lead to a big shift in my musical interests. I left my small town, the theatre and my classical background behind and began fronting both Country and Rock bands, even singing along side Juice Newton, The Oak Ridge Boys, Glen Campbell, Sugarland, and Trick Pony on stage at the Porterfield Country Music Festival in 2005, ...

Suzie is extremely knowledgeable

Suzie is an amazing teacher! I am so impressed with her knowledge of music! In just the short time I've been taking voice lessons I can feel my voice getting stronger. She has taught me the correct way of breathing, projecting and standing. She's always giving me positive feedback, which is so helpful. I would recommend Suzie to anyone who is serious about taking voice lessons!

Susan is an amazing teacher

I haven't had too many classes with Susan but already I feel more confident in my voice. She has taught me so much about the correct way to breathe and the way to keep the right tone while you sing. I thought that taking lessons with someone over skype wouldn't be very effective but I was totally wrong because Susan is so prepared and sends you warm ups and also instrumental music for the song you are going to work on before your lesson. She makes sure to give positive comments as well as critiques so you won't feel uncomfortable or feel like you're a bad singer. I am so happy that I picked Susan and I would recommend her to anyone!!

Minoo is an excellent teacher! She's very patient and she makes it fun. She actually had me playing songs by my 2nd lesson! For someone who had no idea how to read music let alone play the piano before she walked through my door, I find it quite remarkable. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn how to play.
