Brynn teaches piano to our 8 year old son. She is great with children, has an easy, encouraging, and enthusiastic manner, and is very patient. She has been attentive to understanding how our son learns best, teaches in a manner that works well for him, and explains concepts clearly. She has also checked frequently to make sure that she is assigning an appropriate amount of materials to practice and has proactively adjusted materials when she thought that new ones would add more value. Our son has made great progress, and I would highly recommend Brynn for both child and adult students.

Sofia was wonderful teacher. she was very punctual and my child liked her bright and fun personality. She taught piano very well considering young child’s age and providing relaxed and flexible method rather than traditional way with tension. We liked her but her schedule didn’t work with us so we had to let her go unfortunately.
P.S. Sofia, thank you for teaching my child her first piano lessons and we wish you the very best luck for your future~!
Yuchen/Annie
An accountable and professional teacher. First, the course set is rational. Sophia usually chooses appropriate pieces which match with the actual level of me. For example, the difficulty level is step by step, which makes me confident and very willing to have classes each time. In addition, she is also good at perceiving my lost points, and is patient to give me efficient direction on how to do better! Really hope more students can reach her out, and explore your own potential on music!

I am a conservatory trained flutist that loves teaching beginning to intermediate students. I approach teaching as a unique collaboration between me, the student, and their parents, when working with children. A single concept can be approached from many angles, and I am committed to finding the best way to communicate with each student. My goal as a teacher is to see the potential in each student, and help them reach the next level of mastery.

About Harry

I started playing clarinet in the school band at age six. My father was a musician, and he thought that playing in the school band would help me overcome my extreme shyness. I remember my first music lesson. I really liked my teacher. He came to my house, and he helped me to care for my clarine

Harry helped my daughter polish up some pieces for an audition. She was nervous and didn't feel fully prepared. Three visits from Harry gave her some great instruction and the confidence to go in and nail her audition!
Tracy L.
My son has had three lessons so far, and we have been very impressed. Mr. Grainger does a great job of encouraging my son through positive feedback, making lessons fun, and giving him very specific, targeted feedback to improve his playing. He has been very flexible and responsive to our changing needs. I highly recommend him.

"Camille is a great instructor! She is calm and encouraging. She has taught me so much about vocal anatomy and important aspects of singing such as breath support, posture, mouth and jaw placement, etc., which in turn has helped in hitting those higher notes. I highly recommend Camille as a vocal coach!"
