My 8 year old is so enthusiastic about piano. Jean has been able to get right to his level and feed that enthusiasm. We left the lesson and Tyler said he wanted to be a famous pianist like Mozart...thank you Jean for showing us how to start.
Lanna L.
Jean is a wonderful teacher. She's dedicated and patient with her students. With a great music background, Jean has given our kids (two of her students) great music & piano techniques/methodology and a way to approach music that is by far superior to that of any of the previous piano teachers. She is agile in her approach to teaching piano with the belief that not one teaching method is applicable to all kids.

Mrs. Jean is an awesome piano teacher. She has a lot of patience when she teachers and has very good technique. At her house I practice on a grand piano, it is great!

Heather is patient and kind. She brings both technical and people skills to our practice sessions. If one of my family members or close friends asked me recommend a piano teacher, with no hesitation, I would enthusiastically reccomend Heather.

Heather was wonderful in getting me back into the piano! As an older student I was apprehensive at first, but she was very positive and made me very comfortable. She was very helpful and brought me a long way in a short period of time.

Johnathan is a teacher in the spirit of a Jedi master. I was looking for someone who could go deep into how to play an instrument properly without making it drudgery and that is exactly what I found. At the start, he asked what I wanted to get out of lessons and where I wanted to take playing the violin. Each lesson has been tailored to add another piece to that foundation.

He really keeps my 6 yr old daughter interested in playing and that is the master skill.
Brian S.
Jonathan is doing a great job training me to elevate my playing from intermediate to advanced. He pays very close attention to detail and has a lot of knowledge in music theory. I look forward to taking more lessons with Jonathan.

I love music theory. I once read a comment on an online discussion board, in which someone basically said that music theory is to music what grammar is to English. I totally agree. It is one thing to know how to read and play music and it is another to have a more in depth understanding of the rules of written music. Music theory helps you to know why certain sounds sound the way they do and how to produce them.

If you're an aspiring composer, music theory is definitely for you! If you sing in a choir or play in an orchestra, music theory is for you too! It will enhance your ability to read musical scores with greater ease and greater speed.

If you're a dedicated, determined student who wants to enhance your ability to read and/or create music, I welcome you to book a lesson with me. :)

I have really enjoyed taking piano playing lessons with Naomi. Working with her, I am learning to practice and play from written music and even surprising myself along the way. Still, I feel the best is to come!
Radell Hutchen
I started working with Naomi just a few months ago and I already feel that she is one of the most inspiring teachers that I have ever had. She has a real joy for music and is an enthusiastic instructor. She has really taken the time to 'go into the weeds' with me and patiently answers all of my questions about music theory. I had tried other teachers in the past, but Naomi is careful to keep the content in step with my learning pace.

I have really appreciated her instruction.

I've been teaching Music Theory for over three years. I treat these lessons much like a classroom setting in which I instruct the basic tenants of music theory in order to help students understand it in accordance with their instrument of choice (including voice). An introduction to orchestration and how their instrument functions within the orchestra will also be instructed. We will use classwork and homework to detail what is instructed as well as multimedia to aid in our learning!

If you're looking for your child to improve their music aptitude, you've come to the right place! Let's get started!

I can tell you his class was one of a kind and he turned a couple of the most complicated subjects of music into something very enjoyable. He's a strict teacher, but he values hard work dearly and he was always available for a student seeking help."
