Great first lesson with hands-on playing, not just an orientation. Looking forward to the next lesson!
Gerald
I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

Melissa was very patient and such a great teacher on my first lesson with her. It went by so fast and I learned so much!

Alina is great and knows how to customize the needs of old beginners like myself.
David
I can't recommend Alina enough. There are 'teachers' out there who are largely cheerleaders, offering lots of encouragement but not much advice or help. Alina is encouraging, for sure, but what I love about her is that she knows her stuff, helps you zero in on what you need to do to improve, and then helps you actually improve with great feedback and advice. Fantastic, I couldn't be happier, thank you Alina!
Ido
Alina is a very detailed and very patient teacher.
She is making sure that my kids are having the right material to take home, and to practice. She is very kind and easy to work with.
I would recommend Alina to any parent that is looking for Piano lessons for their kids or themselves.

Online Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano for 10 years. Within the first few lessons students will be able to read basic music notation and as time goes on they will be able to confidently play beginning songs of their own choosing. I typically use Alfred or Faber books which builds playing skills and teaches music theory.

About Rhonda

I have always had a love for music. From all the music trivia games my family won't play with me, to my large collection of records, cassettes, and CDs - I am hooked! I made my solo performance debut at age 7 by singing "It's A Small World" acapella in a school talent show. At age 9 I started

"Alex is a fabulous piano teacher. My son took lessons with him and learned a lot while also having a great time. Alex takes the time to find out what the student wants to learn and customizes the lesson plan to the student. It was an all around great experience and if he still lived in town, my son would still be taking lessons. Five stars isn't enough!"
