Jeanne is a wonderful person and knows children very well. My sons are an energetic handful and she patiently guides them through the work. For distracted 9 years olds, they steadily make progress.

Private Music Performance Teacher

I strive to treat each student equally no matter how advance the student are. My job as a teacher is to provide students a tool in life. Students will learn the way life works through the art of music. Should the students decide to pursue music or not in the future, I only hope that students will apply what they've learned in music to their everyday problem solving.

Johnny is experienced in teaching cello. His lessons are always passionate, musical, and informative. There are several aspects of his lessons that I'd like to share.

1. Full of Content: He delivers enough details of a new technique with simplification for an easy understanding.
2. Learning Curve: By breaking down and reorganizing the knowledge, he teaches new concepts step by step, from approachable actions to efficient actions.
3. Customization: He helps you find out a suitable solution to grow on the techniques based on your own physical and cognitive characteristics.
4. Experimentation: The correct ways he suggests you do is demonstrated by experimenting with different ways for comparison, which you would not only know what to do but know the reason behind it.

Cello is a beautiful yet complicated instrument. To enjoy it, a great mentorship is necessary and truly valued.
Nina
After coming from a high pressure - pre professional cello teacher, Johnny Mok is a breath of fresh air! I am learning at a faster rate and accomplishing more due to his relaxed and happy teaching style. So glad I found you Jonny!

Ray is truly a fantastic teacher. I'm learning jazz after having a background in classical piano and he is incredibly knowledgeable in both, and has been an amazing resource for theory and concepts and how to apply them in a structured and consistent way. I am so glad to have found him, he's one of the best piano teachers I've ever had.
Arlissa
Very knowledgeable teacher. Was able to quickly identify what I needed to work on/start off with. Created a plan to keep moving forward and taught me what I need to get to that next step. I had been teaching myself and he was able to add onto that next step and pick up where I left off. Can't wait to get practicing and continue my progress.
Caleb A.
I have nothing but good things to say about my lessons with Ray, he's very easy going and he teaches you the theory behind the music as you're progressing so you get the full experience, he's a great teacher and I look forward to more lessons with him

"I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor."

Jordan D. has a big passion for music, and a big heart for equipping people for the musical endeavors ahead of them. He is always encouraging and always positive. Even if I feel like I could have done better, he celebrates me where I am, which has taught me to have more confidence while singing, playing guitar or charango, and even glockenspiel.
