My daughter started taking lessons with Athena when she was 7. Within weeks she already was playing simple songs & loved practicing etc. Now 2 years later she has shown incredible improvements. Highly recommend Athena.

Great intro to singing. I have never taken singing lessons because I never thought I could have a singing voice, but after taking this intro course with Dominic it made me realize that I could develop my voice into something good. Dominic is very knowledgeable and very patient. I recommend using headphones so you can hear the piano as you are going through breathing exercises.

Dominic is terrific! I haven't been this close to a piano or keyboard in probably 30 years. He was very patient and kept me focused.It's amazing how things come back to you. I will definitely keep him as my teacher. Thank you Dominic!

my experience

Tom really knows his way around a bass. Each time I go for a lesson, i leave happy about the things we've accomplished in the lesson. Anything that i would like to learn Tom makes it possible for me to do so. I started getting lessons in order to not slow down on my playing. With my schedule constantly changing Tom has been very nice at accommodating when possible.

Best instructor I ever had. He has some ear. He listens to a song I want to learn and he plays it. I'm jealous. When he shows me how to play it he makes it fun and so easy. If you want to learn how to play, Adam is the one.

Great Teacher

Yuichi has been a really great teacher for our 7 years old son. He is very patient and really great with kids. He's made a real effort to get our son interested in drumming and music more generally, introducing to different sounds, rhythms and types of music. My son really enjoys his lesson and is making good progress!

Our son is 7 years old and started drum lessons with Yuichi several months ago. My son absolutely loves his classes with Yuichi and would go more than once a week if he could. We are very happy with Yuichi. He makes the lesson fun and interesting for our son, and at the same time teaching him what he needs to know so he continues to make progress. He is a great match for our son.
