Roger
I am a 67 yo man who had studied music eons ago. I finally admitted that I missed it and decided to take lessons for the piano. Kit has been an exceptional instructor. She is very knowledgeable and talented. She teaches by guiding me along the way at my own pace. But is not adverse to correcting my errors. She also sends me home with advice on pitfalls to avoid in my practicing. She is patient, friendly, and makes learning very enjoyable. I highly recommend her for piano lessons to students of all ages. Thank you

My kids have been taking guitar and drum lessons with Bruno for 2 years, and they are having a great time! It's awesome that he teaches two instruments, because I can have both kids take their lessons in the same place. They have tons of fun learning new songs, and the studio is nice too. Highly recommend him for others!
Lilia B.
I enrolled in online lessons with Bruno after seeing his posts on social media. I am glad that I can get such effective lessons with him online, because he is an excellent musician and instructor. He does a great job of demonstrating all the techniques that I need to know and teaching me a lot of different songs. Our lessons have been very productive thus far and I look forward to more!
Lindsey
Bruno is a great guitar teacher. My son stared lessons with him last year as a complete beginner, and now he can play a lot of his favorite songs on guitar. Bruno is knowledgeable, patient, and fun all at the same time! My son learns something new at every lesson and is excited to go home and practice! He is having tons of fun learning with Bruno and I recommend him to anyone.
