This is a great class for any aspiring musician, or any student,looking to gain some basic understanding of music. Hopefully, the student will gain some appreciation of music as well. The concrete foundations of music, rhythm, melody and harmony will all be discussed in detail. I've been teaching this class for about ten years and found it helps musicians with there own performance.

I have known Joshua for several years and have observed first hand the relationship he has with his students. He cares! Gracias para tu paciencia!
Maureen
Doctor Joshua has been instructing my 2 grandsons in piano at their home for many years. They are both excellent pianists, especially the 14 year old. Doctor Joshua lets them choose modern songs relevant to them and has written music for them to play. He also has recitals for his students and has had them play at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet pre-show. Their confidence has soared. I have been at my son’s home many times when my grandsons are taking their lessons and am very impressed at how Doctor Joshua is with both of them, he is very encouraging.

Joshua is attentive and enjoys teaching children. He is an experienced educator. His students get individualized lessons.

Hi, my name is Tanya and I have been teaching piano lessons since I was just 16 years old! What started as a fun activity during my childhood, turned into a lifelong passion.
I love teaching kids of all ages and figuring out different ways to make the lessons fun and enjoyable.
I was lucky enough to grow up with a mother who taught violin lessons all of her life. Watching her teach has been very educational and inspiring.
So excited to work with you or your kids!

About Tanya

I started taking violin lessons in Russia when I was just 4 years old - I was so young, I could hardly remember my first lessons. At age 6, my parents signed me up for additional piano lessons. That was the best decision they could have made. That was when I decided to permanently make piano my mai

About Cara Isadora

Hi there! My name is Cara. I am an award winning vocalist and experienced performer who loves to teach singing.

I wrote the review below because I was mad at her for personal reasons... Shes actually a great teacher. Sorry Cara
Estevan
DO NOT! I REPEAT DO NOT take opera vocal lessons from her. She learned from someone who cant even sing. She actually believes falsetto is unhealthy and I spent years avoiding the best part of my voice due to her misinformation. Any look at vocal pedagogy will confirm that falsetto is indeed a healthy voice mechanism used to develop a strong voice especially in tenors and she has chosen to be willfully ignorant due to either bad teaching or just not caring. Wolf in sheep's clothing people. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
Becca
She's a wonderful teacher! Very caring and patient but to the point. She knows her stuff!

"Hi--Mary Frances suggested that we go with 45-minute sessions, and I agree. We ran over about 15 minutes yesterday, so could you change my 30-minute charge to a 45-minute charge starting with yesterday's session? Then could you let me know once this change has been made so I can let her know? She will then change the schedule accordingly. Thanks, David"
