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

"Amazing Player...Even Better Teacher.

From my first lesson with Bonnie, she opened me up to a new realm of musicianship and technique that I had never experienced before. She re-ignited a passion in my music that I was beginning to lose. I am forever grateful to her for this.

Bonnie is a hundred percent devoted to music, her playing and her teaching. One of the things I love most about her is that she seems to know everything about the flute, yet she is always striving to learn more. And if, every once in a while, there is something she doesn't know, she investigates. She finds an answer, contemplates it, and teaches me.

Bonnie is also a genuinely caring person who is entirely invested in her students. She often e-mails me after my lesson to tell me something that she had thought about relating to my lesson, proving that she is always thinking about ways to help me in my playing.

Bonnie continues to challenge me and encourage me in all my playing - she truly makes me feel that with enough practice and determination there is nothing I can't play. She even helped me attain a 100 on my all-state level piece this year. However, the score is less meaningful than the feeling I had after I performed that day. I knew that I was playing on a level I had never imagined - all due to Bonnie's inspiring me to always be better and her total confidence in me, not only as a flute player, but also as a musician.

Bonnie's musicianship and playing is unparalleled, her teaching style unique and engaging and, once you get to know her, she is quite the comedian. I am truly lucky to have her as my teacher."

Guitar Theory | 5 Reasons Guitarists Need Music Theory

Some guitarists have a lot of excuses when it comes to learning music theory. Guitar teacher Zachary A. shatters these excuses, busts a few myths, and shares why music theory is so important for guitarists after all... Music theory is a vast, almost unending, amount of knowledge. Many of music's greats studied and had schooling for decades. In all honesty I do not believe that you ever really finish studying, at least when you are dedicated and when you have the desire to learn music. Th …
