My son enjoyed the lesson and wanted to practice right away.

Josh is always easy to be around and is able to form any lesson around what I wanted to do, as well as teach me loads of new ideas if I hadn’t planned anything. He has greatly helped improve my own production and give me insight into what professional producers do to set themselves apart. He’s great to work with and always in an uplifting mood.
Chris
Josh is an awesome teacher. He is patient and supportive and always comes up with ways to connect me to the concept he’s teaching. I asked to learn drums “the right way” so we spend a ton of time on fundamental exercises that i suspect are boring for him but he never shows it. He is always upbeat and positive and I enjoy our lessons a lot. Could not recommend him more highly.

Private Music Theory Teacher

This is especially intended to students that know very little about music theory. We will do a lot of games to gain the experience part very well inside. The we will transport this inner knowledge to the theory and reading. We will also work using this theory with your instrument so you can relate your knowledge better.
The early music education is intended for babies and expecting mothers. We will start introducing music to their lives and use music as a tool of stimulation for their learning process.

Patient, kind, innovative and creative are just a few words to describe Ms. Cecilia. She brings her love for music into each lesson - private or group. She is full of ideas and suggestions for learning that next piece and celebrates all victories - big and small.
Kristine
Cecilia taught 2 of my children for four years, and as a musician myself I can wholeheartedly recommend Cecilia as an outstanding violin teacher for both beginners and advanced students. She is an incredibly passionate and dedicated teacher who is always fully prepared and focused for every single lesson. She always has a plan for what comes next, and she systematically teaches in a very clear and organized way that is easily understood by the student. She is always adapting and responding to the needs and temperament of each student. She figures out how to motivate and bring out the best in every student. She demands excellence and high standards, and yet always shows compassion, patience and love for everyone. Cecilia is a very special and passionate musician who is fully dedicated to teaching and sharing her passion of music with everyone. You will be in very good hands with her!

Cecilia is an amazing teacher. She is able to adapt your lessons to what you need. Makes things easy to understand and makes me feel comfortable with playing. I highly recommend her for other students.

As a 63-year old I was concerned it would tough for me to learn. I'm sure I don't retain and absorb like a 12-year old but I AM LEARNING TO PLAY. Justin is very patient and accommodating and I am inspired to practice weekly. Most of all I'm having fun.

The online lesson is something to get used to but Jessica was very kind and patient with my daughter! Looking forward to more lessons!

Patient and encouraging

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

"It has been a few years since our daughter, Michaela, took piano and music theory classes from Howard Richman. However, hardly a day goes by when she is not using something that she has learned from him. Whether she is writing a song, composing music, producing a track, playing the piano, singing, rehearsing, performing, etc…it always involves some aspect of her lessons with Howard. She is always referencing material from her classes with him. The enjoyment and confidence that Howard instills in his students, through his methods of teaching, truly must last a lifetime. Going to Howard was one of the best decisions that we have made regarding Michaela's career. In fact, as it turns out, it was a life changing experience for her. Needless to say, we have the very highest recommendation for Howard Richman."

"Without Jeremy, I never would've gotten my Master's Degree. As I was preparing for my comprehensive exams in music performance, I had five pieces ranging from Medieval all the way through 20th century that had to be studied and analyzed for the music theory section of my exam. Jeremy was able to help me (and my entire study group) by teaching us in a knowledgeable, yet approachable way. He has a great deal of patience and a very kind demeanor. I wish I had encountered a teacher like him while in my undergrad music studies. He simplified so many of the concepts and ideas of music theory which really helped me to understand the analysis process and gave me full confidence when taking my comprehensive exams. He never made me feel stupid when asking questions and even when he had to explain the same concept over and over (which that happened often) he never lost his patience. He is so incredibly knowledgeable as a musician and such a delightfully kind person."

I’m also very pleased as she is a warm and welcoming person and I had an easy time communicating with her about what exactly I am looking for, our schedule, and also difficulties with entering our first lesson.

The boys will definitely, and with joy, continue their music journey with Alyssa."

His big smile paired with his easy going personality is very inviting, and his ability to meet his student where they are and keep the lesson on track is where he shined in our session(s).
