It a great experience so far !

Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

Gina’s wonderfully encouraging and is helping me take the skills I already have and fine tuning them. She’ll listen to me sing a song the whole way through and then we’ll go back and work on specific sections. She gives good pointers and can give me vocal exercises to try to fix a specific problem. I like that we use YouTube karaoke videos because I can choose any song with a karaoke version and I can use the same video to practice at home as I do with her.

A wonderful person and fabulous singer! Gina is incredibly talented and super helpful, kind and encouraging to kids! Highly recommended!

I have been incorporating theory into the lessons for the 25 plus years I've been teaching. It's an integral part of learning each piece and additional books can be used to reinforce new concepts if needed.

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

As someone who suffered a lot from stage fear and anxiety in auditions or concerts, throughout the years I've explored different ways to control my reactions to stress and fear with the help of the knowledge I've acquired through my studies in psychology, meditation and Alexander technique.
I'm really passionate about sharing this knowledge and helping other people preparing best for a focused and relaxed audition which is a key for success in performance world!

About Omer

An award-winning Jazz violinist and a graduate of The Newschool of Jazz, I would love to offer you my unique approach to learning this incredible and versatile instrument. Through ear training and improvisation we will learn how to master the instrument whether you're interested in playing classica

Omer has been an excellent teacher! I’ve over heard several lessons with him and my son and I’m always impressed by the breath of knowledge he has. In just a few weeks my son has been inspired to play the piano for hours at a time. Originally Omer was going to teach my son violin but they switched to piano so that they could explore their common interest in composing music for film. I am immensely pleased with him and recommend him wholeheartedly!
Lucy D.
First lesson ended with such a good feeling of well being. I believe I am in the right hands. Omer is patient; and he listens as well as talks.
Lenna P.
I have been playing in a string quartet with Omer for two years and I can easily say he's one of the most talented musicians I've ever worked with. He's also a kind, intelligent, and reliable person. Judging from the skills he displays in quartet work I have no hesitation in saying that he is a wonderful teacher.

"I've been taking lessons with Joao for over a year and a half now, and I love how he works with me. He's taken the time to know my goals and my style of music, and tailors our lessons to what I want to achieve. He's encouraging, patient, generous, and kind, and I always enjoy my lessons because I know he's rooting for my success! He challenges me in great ways, but also supports me when I make mistakes. With Joao, I've gone from no piano experience to being able to write my own songs on the piano and have gained the confidence to perform in front of others."

"Michael is the best! Right from the start he picked up on the weak areas of my voice and we've been working on it since. He goes through the exercises such that I'm singing the way I wanted without even thinking about it. And he doesn't miss a thing. If I miss a note he's right there having me do it over again until I get it right.

He also explained in detail what the problem areas were and how to fix them. Describing with words how to use the human voice is no easy task, but he knows exactly how to get the point across.

I was originally pessimistic about online lessons, but I thought I'd try it since I couldn't find anyone with credentials and experience like Michael's in Atlanta for less than a gajillion an hour. I was pleasantly surprised. I can sing in the comfort of my own home, and it's just like he's right there with me.

Thanks Michael!"

"Alethia is a very talented teacher and violinist. She is extremely professional, attentive and accommodating to her students needs/goals. As an older student with no musical background, she has made the violin less intimidating and more accessible by breaking it down and making it less complex and easier to understand. While, I've only been with her a few years, I'm very proud of the progress I've made with her. If you are interested in taking up the violin, I highly recommend her."
