Catherine is very responsible and extremely helpful for my music theory study. She set up additional office hours to help me understand the knowledge and pass the advanced tonal practice course. Her introduction was very clear and she delivered it with great patience. She was also very thoughtful to be flexible to fit my schedule. I really appreciate her help, and would highly recommend her.
I wish I could give catherine 5000000+ stars! she worked with me through two tough years of undergrad music theory and keyboard and I was able to pass my classes on time and really improve my skills. her positivity, enthusiasm, understanding, and work ethic are unmatched. I couldn’t of made it through my first two years of college without her.
Best teacher ever.

Alberta C.
Dor is an excellent drum instructor. He taught our 9-year old in home for 6 months and was terrific. Our son really advanced his speed techniques under Dor's instruction. We only stopped due to our son's broken arm and we look forward to resuming lessons with Dor as soon as possible. He's great with kids, punctual, reliable and a pleasant guy.

I started my singing career at the prestigious Hanns Eissler University in Berlin, Germany where I studied jazz and classical style along with direct training from David Lee Brewer (Beyonce's vocal coach). I also studied advance vocal techniques while working with Daryl Simmons (Babyface's "Silent Partner") on various records and studio projects. I received a "Gold Record" for Pop Music in Europe. I also taught vocals at “JPat Records” (Usher’s mom’s label in Atlanta) under Michi Robinson’s Artist Development Program. My voice clients include beginners, intermediate and notable recording artists. I'm very patient and thorough with my students and try to make the sessions lively but focused as well.

I was able to train with Alice (@AlicjaTheSinger) not too long ago while I was preparing for an upcoming concert performance (I sing "Luther Vandross" tribute concerts). Her training was awesome as she had me concentrate on the basics of "runs", scales, breathing, etc. She's super fun to work with and has a positive attitude. It was clear to see the results after some practice and I couldn't be more pleased with her help and guidance. Her inside information and experience in working with Top Artists in the studio really helped and gave me a head's up as I'm working on my first song/EP!

I highly recommend Alice as your voice instructor!

Dave has been great with helping improving my son's drum techniques. He is patient, yet to the point and doesn't waste anyone's time with making sure the student understands the lesson. We are looking forward to many more lessons in the future.
Dave is an incredible drum teacher. I am glad I chose Dave as my djembe teacher and highly recommend him!!!
Dave adjusted the lessons to be appropriate and engaging for my young learner, yet every session introduced a vital piece of theory or technique. We are very pleased with this class!
