First lesson, can tell we chose the right instructor. Excellent with my child. Knowledgeable.. my 11 year old is excited for more lessons!! :)
Cathy Gertz
Murray has a unique way of finding the way to teach an individual based on their strengths and weaknesses and how their brain thinks and learns. My 52 year old brain doesn't always get it but Murray always finds a way or technique for me to understand so that I can play and be the best that I can be whether I playing my drums or playing my cajon..

Not enough space to write how excited our students. Murray knows drums In and OUT. We are beyond blessed to have him instruct us!

What I enjoy most about the piano is=

The opportunity to show my students what sounds and ideas they can create from the piano; sounds that are uniquely their own; sounds that have meaning and purpose and are full of their own emotions. That is the most rewarding part of teaching.

Also= As a musician who takes great care of his body with a wide range of physical activities and has studied the human body thoroughly, I'm very adamant that piano playing requires tremendous physical dexterity and bodily control, not just knowledge of the music alone.

Point= My overall approach to piano lessons simply put is: How do we form the closest bond between "Us" and the "Instrument"?

So how do we achieve this.

I do this by training the student's hands & body to move in the way they were designed by nature to move.

I fully understand music theory, chords, scales, and rhythm and I will teach you everything I know about them. Point= So does every cookie-cutter piano teacher.

My daughter has been training with Antonella for years and she does wonderful with kids. She loves music and has a passion that will help her students learn music and have fun while doing it

Antonella is an AMAZING teacher. I am an older adult student, with no music theory or background. She is very patient, accommodating, and uses very useful analogies that help me visualize what to do in a way that helps me learn and remember. My own weakness is in making time to diligently practice. I look forward to each lesson, and give her my highest recommendation.
Angela
Our experience with Antonella has been wonderful. She has high standards but is also extremely patient with young students. My daughter has learned beautiful technique but more importantly, she has expanded her mind, improved her sense of discipline and commitment and learned to play piano with a feel for the music. Working with Antonella is fantastic for the student and their parent/guardian. It's a joint effort. I highly recommend Antonella

We focus on playing and writing music immediately, the theory is second, music playing and having fun is first!

I'm 31 years old and I have been playing music in bands of all kinds since I was 15. I practiced 3 years before I actually played with anyone and once I did I learned so much more. I don't want you to make the same mistake, try out my 30 minute discount rate and we can make sure you are having fun and playing music in no time, if you want to expand into harder lessons then we can!

My prices are so I can give each student my undivided attention, even the 30 minute may go on longer if the student is hungry. At these prices I can support as many students that really want to learn as possible no matter what level lessons they buy. I recommend the hour as it will allow for most growth.

About Joshua

Guitar is the most amazing instrument to me. I got really lucky because someone gave me an electric when i was 12 and I just played it. I didn't even know they had to be tuned at first! Once I started playing with people I learned so much so fast. I also went to school for recording and am able

"Our daughter is taking Oboe and Piano lessons with Lisa. Lisa has taught her more than she has learned from anyone else (including her instructors at school), she is always encouraging our daughter to reach a little higher than her current level, and interested in the music she wants to learn to play instead of just the lesson book. As a parent that knows very little about music, Lisa has always gone out of her way to help us with any questions we have about buying instruments or just in general."
