Meeting John was great, very friendly and professional and to the point, which is my cap of tea and he suggested to get a weighted keys piano to strengthen my fingers, I’m looking into one
Thanks John I will recommend you as a teacher

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

Dr. Gutierrez is an excellent Spanish professor. She uses her competency and fluency in the language to teach students in a comprehensive way. She also challenges her students and exposes them to various genres of Spanish literature. I enjoyed the several classes I took with her! ¡La recomiendo por completo!
Rita
Great instructor who explains and teaches Spanish in a clear and understandable way. Dr. Gutierrez is a really kind professor and one of the best Spanish professors I have had in college!

I first took a class taught by Dr. Gutierrez several years ago, and went on to take two more taught by her. She explains things clearly and well, shows a lot of patience, and brings great enthusiasm into her lessons. She's one of the best Spanish instructors I've had. I went into her class with a mild curiosity for Spanish and came out with a passion for learning the language.
