I believe that learning music is one of the greatest gifts a human being can obtain and achieve in life general. As a music instructor in voice, I believed that this wonderful natural instrument has the power to move people through the power of the text that singers must deliver efficiently during each of their performances. With that in mind, I always like to have my students achieve this valuable role. I also would like to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability learning wide variety of songs while maintaining a healthy singing throughout their instructions.

My first lesson was extremely productive. I am an adult student and hadn't played in many years and Max focused on techniques to help me with my weaknesses, and to quickly surpass the level of playing I was previously at. He is patient, encouraging and an excellent teacher.

"Keiko is an amazing teacher!!! She's been teaching me for many years now, and it's been great! She's taught me ever since I was an absolute beginner. She's helped me win international violin competitions that gave me opportunities to perform in Carnegie Hall. She recently prepared me for an audition for a prestigious music school, which I got accepted into. Her lessons are fun and interesting, and very, very helpful.
Highly recommend!! \ (•◡•) /"

"Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age."

"I have been taking flute lessons from Ms. Wilson for close to 4 months now and its been a great experience so far. I had very little idea of music and had no such formal training but wanted to learn flute. She is supportive from day 1 and started to teach me the basics of music and flute. She is very calm, listens to my problems when I don't get some things easily and tries to suggest solutions. She has been very flexible in class timings and adjusts her schedule to accommodate me when I can't make it to the class on some days. I wish I get to learn a lot from her and become a good flutist."

He's very receptive and adjusts his lessons according to what my kids are interested in.

My grandson is taking piano lessons from Rosalind H. At first I was wondering about the interaction because he's shy; but he looks forward to his lessons and practices diligently. I'm sure it's because of Rosalind's experience and teaching techniques that makes it so enjoyable for him; she's very good with children. I'm so glad she was available!"
