I've been teaching French for 6 years and my students have gone from total beginner to intermediate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to introduce yourself and speak about basic conversational subjects and as time goes on you'll be able to speak about many more specific topics. I can work with you on your written and oral understanding skills as well as written and oral producing. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Elsa has been great with teaching both of my daughters. She is very energetic and has a lot of positive approaches with both a 5 and a 8 year old. She caters the lessons to each level and skill set. My kids always look forward to her classes.
Erika
I can say without hesitation that Elsa is the most professional and pleasant teacher that I have ever worked with. She is very customer service oriented, efficient, and flexible if you have a specific goal in mind.

My teenage daughter looks forward to the class and always ends the session with a smile on her face. She has fun with Elsa while she is learning. Win win!

I highly recommend French Encore!
Frances
I'm delighted to have found Elsa! She is energetic and charming. She is a gifted teacher. Both my granddaughter and I take lessons with her - although not at the same time. She easily adjusts to the level of her student, young or mature, beginner or advanced, making her lessons engaging and informative.

Mary is very kind, friendly, understanding, and polite. She is extremely encouraging, and believes in her students! It is usually very hard for me to push past my limits, but with Mary I felt much more confident to do so! But she knows when to tell you to stop. She is very clear, and I learned a lot from her.

I'm a specialist in Brazilian Guitar and have played and used American Folk Styles to teach finger picking for many years. This includes Travis Picking, Blues and arrangement of all sorts of melodies for guitar. One of the first world musics I played was Irish music and I have a nice repertoire of these melodies to help the student learn how to play a linear melody. Reading is not necessary but I'm expert at getting people to read by using simple familiar music. I have been playing Jazz acoustically fingerstyle for a while and have been a good understanding of Swing guitar styles too. Repertoire and recordings are essential in the process. This I also provide to the student

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

Dan knows how to do everything! I consider myself an advanced student, and he's able to clearly answer all of my questions and show me examples on the fly! I highly recommend him, especially if you're eager to learn quickly
Susan B.
Dan is an excellent instructor. Although I have played the piano for years, my technical skills and understanding of music theory have improved exponentially through my work with Dan. He is particularly accomplished at using multiple approaches to explain difficult concepts to ensure that I fully understand them. I highly recommend him.

Have had a few lessons with Dan so far and nothing to complain about. Really this is the type of teacher I'm looking for the whole time as an adult beginner. He knows what he is doing and how to push you to the next level.
