As a novice piano playing student, I was introduced to reading music as well as playing the piano by Buzz Amato, a great pianist and instructor. I would be remiss if I did not share how wonderful my piano lessons have been under the many talents Buzz offers as a piano instructor. His ability to convey concepts/theories of piano playing into understandable and applicable practice has made my learning experience enjoyable. Buzz is a good listener, very patient and observant, and acquires an innate gift to teach piano playing in ways that encourage me to continue my lessons. Buzz is a highly skilled piano instructor.

I am a professional actress/singer who has been easing back into performing as my children grow more independent. I am rusty vocally due to recent successful vocal cord surgery. Michael is the ultimate professional - patient, knowledgeable, and kind. I am thrilled that I found him and look forward to my next lesson.

As a choir conductor and church musician, I encountered all kinds vocal challenges from classical style to contemporary one. I'm very happy that Dr. Douglas is able to answer every question I brought to him. His experience and knowledge directly helped me toward my own breakthrough in vocal performance. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Douglas!

My son Steven has been taking taking lessons with Carol for about 2 years now and we think she is the greatest! Carol was very knowledgeable during the lessons and her patience with my son helped him achieve greatness. My son is now moving and we wish he could take Carol with him but shes got great work to do with other students! I HIGHLY recommend lessons with Carol!

I won a few guitar lessons with Albert at a Gift Auction at my son's Elementary School many years ago. Albert was a wonderful teacher who seemed to know how to play any song I suggested and got me motivated to play the guitar again! I then signed both of my kids up with him. They took lessons on and off for many years and today they both sing and play guitar every chance they get. Thank you Albert for introducing them to the guitar and motivating them to play! It is a huge part of their lives!

Albert is able to relate to students of all ages, very well and give them a solid foundation. I was eight years old when I began taking lessons from him and he gave me a foundation in Rock, Blues, and Acoustic guitar that has lasted a life time. Albert is a very patient teacher and very talented musician.

Albert is an excellent teacher of many styles - I learned classical, rock, bluegrass and folk guitar while working with him. As an older player trying to pick up an instrument again, he made me feel comfortable and much less intimidated at the task. It is true that he is very patient and dedicated to helping you realize your musical goals. I give him my highest recommendation.

WE LOVE OUR DRUM INSTRUCTOR! My son was an extremely high energy very distracted five year old when we started lessons with Mr. Al. Let's just say that my son is not an easy student, but our son had already developed an obsessive attachment to music, most intensely to drums. We expected someone would be able to teach him drums, but we also got someone who is patient, flexible, understanding, and always respectful and kind to our son. We see Mr. Al in his home studio, and at now at seven years old, Joey's skill has definitely progressed. In fact, his learning has a momentum that our entire family can see. But Mr. Al has given Joey so much more than just that. Joey's love of music has flourished beyond measure. Joey now tells Mr. Al that he loves him after every lesson, WOW! We have been so pleased that my seventeen year old daughter now also takes lessons with Mr. Al too. Mr. Al is the perfect instructor for us. My kids think he's cool, and we think he's just fantastic all the way around!

Enrique is very good with my son Jordan. He is very patient and keeps Jordan interested and challenged. Jordan is learning quickly thanks to Enrique's ability to explain everything in a very straight forward manor.
