Sofia was wonderful teacher. she was very punctual and my child liked her bright and fun personality. She taught piano very well considering young child’s age and providing relaxed and flexible method rather than traditional way with tension. We liked her but her schedule didn’t work with us so we had to let her go unfortunately.
P.S. Sofia, thank you for teaching my child her first piano lessons and we wish you the very best luck for your future~!
Yuchen/Annie
An accountable and professional teacher. First, the course set is rational. Sophia usually chooses appropriate pieces which match with the actual level of me. For example, the difficulty level is step by step, which makes me confident and very willing to have classes each time. In addition, she is also good at perceiving my lost points, and is patient to give me efficient direction on how to do better! Really hope more students can reach her out, and explore your own potential on music!

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

Dan was an awesome instructor - even after our first lesson I came away with a ton of actionable ways to practice and improve my playing.
Jack B.
I started my mission to learn how to play piano with zero prior knowledge or experience with Dan and I could not be more happy with my results thus far. Dan is an expert piano player there is no question about that. But more impressive is his ability to teach, having no prior exposure to piano lessons Dan was extremely helpful in introducing me to new topics and ideas that have helped me to improve as a piano player. He works based off of your own goals and is dedicated to teaching what you want to learn as well as what is necessary to learn in order to meet your goals. He is very flexible in scheduling lessons which is huge for me having a job who's schedule changes regularly. I will continue to take lessons from Dan in the future and highly recommend from my experience for anyone just getting into piano although I know he works with much more talented and experienced students as well.

Dan is really good and creative teacher! I had fun lesson with him!

"Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music."

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
