Amazing teacher and my daughter loves her lesson. Jean has a great personality and she is very patient. Its a beautiful thing to see my daughter playing the piano.

Great job getting my daughter who is not afraid to sing in front of people to open her voice up even further. She just preformed as a lead in a play and displayed what she has learned very well

About Anastasia

After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first not

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

Hello beautiful singers! My name is Hannah and I have been steadily training for the past 15 years, specializing in vocal pedagogy. Through years of training in both the professional world and extensive education, I firmly believe that the key to easy and lasting singing is in healthy vocal production. My desire is to transform the voices placed in my care through the simple science of muscular development, and transform hearts through the repetition of them seeing what they are truly capable of.

About Hannah

I am a professional singer, a signed singer/songwriter with Destiny Music Records, and a worship leader at my congregation, where I also teach my students! In addition, I am the residential Music Director for Rich Theatre in Virginia Beach. I graduated from Palm Beach Atlantic University in vocal p

Peter
Nick is an amazing ukelele teacher! He has been teaching my 9-year-old son for about 8 months now. He is cheerful and enthusiastic, and an undeniable talent. His teaching style is at once relaxed ("feeling" the music over strict adherence to technique), and rigorous (dropping in some heavy music theory early on). He's teaching my son to be a "musician", not just a "ukulele player". He encourages creativity and tailors the lessons to what our son enjoys. He sends a great summary email after each lesson with notes and reminders and things to work on for the next week. And his lessons even carry over nicely to how my son is learning piano. We would recommend him highly.
Josh
Nick is a great ukulele teacher. He works with my daughter in her after school program but we've also done online/virtual lessons and even I learn so much! He's fun, easy going, super encouraging and a true talent that he can see what my daughter (and I) are doing right and wrong. He's the best music teacher you can find.
Elizabeth
My son takes beginning band with Nick. This group of very young players is learning how to hear a piece of music, break it down, play it together, and make it their own. Along the way, Mr. Nick teaches them theory, technique, and joy in playing music. Nick has the patience of a saint. His expertise is in guitar and banjo, but he knows his way around the whole band, and can teach rhythm and technique on a wide range of instruments. I highly recommend. Note, we’ve done lessons both on line and in person. Both were good.

"Thanks to Ivan for the best lessons and opportunity to take a bit of his experience! For me Ivan is one of those people who really love what they do and share their love with world and others. If you are looking for experienced, thoughtful, patient piano teacher who could not only teach and check your progress but be your guide in fantastic world of piano music you couldn't find a better man.

Ivan conducts his lessons in a very friendly manner and I'm sure that sometime you would say with great honor that he become your friend. And it is one more thing why it is worth to take his lessons."

"Jenny Packard was my instructor for 3 years and now the director of the flute choir I attend. She is a great teacher and mentor and provides honest feedback with so much encouragement. She helped me greatly improve my technique, sound, posture to avoid pain, and even made me view playing music differently and now, I have so much more appreciation for the art. Not only was she a wonderful teacher, but someone who I could count on to be there when I needed her. She was very patient with me and always made me feel like I could accomplish any piece of music. She is truly an outstanding instructor and anyone would be lucky to work with her!"
