Excellent drum teacher!

Edgar is an amazing drummer and teacher. He's very patient and committed to make you a great drummer. He also takes the instruction from the "classroom" to the real world, he once took me to one of his shows and let me play a song with his band!!! That was amazing.

Erik A. Miami Beach, FL

About Erik

I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal. *** Lesson Details *** Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, know all the ...

You will learn so much with Erik! He has a solid grasp on a lot of music theory and knows how to break that down and explain it. The sessions are fun! I always look forward to the lesson, and they seem so short because the time is flying by. I definitely recommend Erik as a teacher.

Great teacher. I am learning at a very quick pace and Erik never stumbles when I ask him questions; and I sure do ask a lot of them and most of them being technical.

I have never played piano before--ever--and in three lessons, Karen has me playing with both hands, and understanding music theory. She is SO sweet--even my husband thinks she's adorable and kind. I really enjoy my hour long practice with her once a week. She is getting me kickstarted so I can eventually play songs along with Sara Bareilles music and the like.

great vocal coach!

Karen always has a smile on her face. Very encouraging and optimistic teacher. Knows exactly what I need to work on and the exercises to accomplish it. She also got the music for any song I wanted to sing and emailed me the instrumental tracks so I could practice on my own. I will miss her very much!

Absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommended!!!

We live out of state and was temporarily relocated to Miami and found Karen online. Based on her previous reviews, we gave it a gamble that paid off!!!! Our little one can sometimes be distracted like any 10 yr old but Karen was patient and GREAT with her!!! The best part, she learned the piano much faster with Karen than she has with any other teacher. Karen recharged our 10 yr old's passion for the piano and made the learning experience fun again. Thank goodness because now I know our baby grand piano won't go to waste at home! I highly recommend Karen for any parent - she's reliable and trustworthy. I wish we could take her back with us to continue teaching the little one but I don't think Karen will go for it. For all parents, definitely choose Karen! She's worth every penny and more.

Axel O. Miami, FL

About Axel

I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher. *** Lesson Details *** My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and ...

I am really happy to have found Axel. I have no singing experience and recently joined a church choir. He was able to show me how to get the best out of my voice and build self confidence. His teaching style is well organized and after every class my voice sounded better to my ears than before.

Very happy student!

AMAZING!!!

Axel is an absolutely wonderful instructor. He has a wealth of knowledge to offer including classical training techniques, how to preserve one's singing voice, and how to maximize on your personal style. He is disciplined but also unafraid to allow you to take risks. Axel stresses artistic freedom and performance power. My vocal range as well as my breathing improved under his instruction. Most importantly, Axel is willing to go the extra mile for his students. He is very supportive and puts in an extraordinary amount of time and effort in order to help his students succeed. I highly recommend him!

Aldrin is an excellent teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable and shows that knowledge in many ways. He is very patient and does not make me feel pressured. I am thrilled that he will be the person to give me my future lessons. His explanations of what we are doing are clear and concise. Cannot wait for the next lesson. As a matter of fact, my wife who listened in, will most likely take keyboard lessons from Aldrin as well.
