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!

Karen is an incredibly skillful teacher. She is very passionate about music and it easy to be comfortable with her. She shares her training and knowledge very clearly. The vocal exercises seem very unique and holistic for body and voice health. She is very encouraging, caring, and soul-uplifting. I feel like I have a new connection with my voice and all that is connected to using it... as an instrument and the journey is only just starting. 45 minutes went by so fast. I am looking forward to my next lessons.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Beginner or advanced, hobbyist, gigging pro or comeback player in any contemporary genre, I can help you improve your playing, increase range and endurance and understand the musical aspects of your favorite songs. Want to play out but nervous? We can discuss eliminating stage anxiety (good for public speaking, too) and how to win over your audience.

I'm a student, too. Let's learn together.

About Tony

I started as a student on piano when I was 8 and trumpet when I was 10. I've been a student ever since. That's a very long time. And what I learned as a student makes me a better teacher. I never stop learning and growing and striving to get better. Why? Because it's fun! I'd like to share that joy

Tony is a great trumpet player with lots of experience to share. We've had multiple SKYPE lessons using the online format and he is dependable, punctual and articulate. Easy scheduling, etc. Plus, he's a straight-up cool, laid-back guy. You'll enjoy your time studying with Tony and gets a lot of practical (and practice-able) info during your lessons.

I like to show my students how the guitar can be a small orchestra. The possibilities of sounds and colors that it can provide is unknown to other instruments and that is what makes it so great. Unlike the piano where a small hammer hits the strings or the violin where the bow frictions them, we have to produce the entire sound on the guitar with our own hands. The process is more personal and, even though it can be harsh at times, it is always satisfying. I also try to bring a more creative part of music when studying the instrument, which keeps classes more dynamic and interesting. I bring my own experiences so that the students can relate in different levels of difficulty.

Hugo is a very patient teacher and has a lot of musical knowledge to pass along. I went to my first lesson with him without knowing anything about music or the guitar and now I already feel some confidence talking about the subject. He gradually deepens the subject and always makes sure you understood before going forward. I super recommend him!

Hugo is one of a kind. Great teacher and an amazing human being! Took lessons with him back in Boston while he was still studying at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and it couldn't have been better. Improved my repertoire and my technique meanly when it comes to fingerstyle. Highly recommended!

I wish there were more stars to give to Natasha! She is sweet, kind and a brilliant instructor! She has taken her years of performing and training to compile a unique and highly effective way to teach voice. She is extremely dedicated to your success! I had a fear of singing and she has helped me over come that fear and I am looking forward to the 1st of many musical auditions. I look forward to many more lessons with her!!! She is the best!
Kristen
This was our daughter’s first class with Natasha. She had had only a few months of formal lessons before meeting with Natasha. I was impressed with how Natasha started by grounding her in the basics of good stance and breathing, not rushing into a lesson but making sure she understood the principles. Natasha has a friendly, engaging personality that immediately puts you at ease. Looking forward to seeing where this path takes my kiddo!

"What a Teacher!

I've been taking singing lessons with Molly since Janurary and already I can tell a difference in my vocal ability. She makes learning how to sing properly so easy to understand and so much fun while doing it. I'm a little shy to sing in front of people and I need a confidence boost but Molly is so easy to feel comfortable with and I find myself becoming more outgoing and willing to try new things with my voice. Although I've been singing since I was young, with Molly's help I am just now learning how much easier those high notes can be. Plus her prices are super reasonable, she's the best and I'm so glad I have her encouraging me every step of my singing journey."

"Piano lessons

Ryan is amazing with our 5 year old daughter and 7 year old son. His level of patience in teaching such a young age group really shows. The lessons are fun and age appropriate. He manages to keep their attention and teach them at the same time. My daughter loves when he lets her compose her own silly sings, not knowing that while having fun she is actually learning the piano. And my son who struggles with attention is able to complete the lesson and retain what he has learned because of Ryan's methods.
Ryan is also very professional, timely and flexible with our schedule."

"Ahmad is incredible!! I could tell from day one he was going to make a huge difference in my guitar playing. His lessons are prepared in advance so very little time is spent penciling out lesson material. His recording/teaching studio is a very clean and professional, and his super well organized library of teaching materials allows us to maximize our learning time. I love playing his teaching material! None of the guys I took lessons from before had such an effective approach. I have so much fun with it! His lessons have introduced me to various pop, rock, country, metal, and jazz concepts from very popular musicians. He has a unique way of teaching rhythm that has helped me capture phrasing and keep songs in time. Recently I've started taking his harmony classes. These classes have given me the knowledge to confidently play with other musicians and create great music. I would highly recommend Ahmad for anyone that desires to learn more about the guitar. I am moving back to Arizona for work (and sun!). I wish I could take him with me!!"

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?

Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick …
