This was my first lesson with Nick. He is a very nice guy. He created a calm, relaxed atmosphere in his studio, and he was clear when he gave me particular instructions. His knowledge of music theory in general, and of the five-string banjo in particular, was quite impressive. I would recommend him highly to both a beginner and to anyone (like myself) who is in need of a refresher course. I am very much looking forward to my next lesson.
Melissa
Nick Russo is a fantastic tutor for kids and adults who would like to learn Ukulele, guitar, banjo or other instruments. He makes ‘learning fun’ he's friendly and cheerful. I don’t have any background in music but, Nick made it easy for me to understand the notes and how it works. I always look forward to every lesson. I Highly recommended Nick to everyone.
Bill
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Nick now for a few months and it’s been a terrific experience — cannot say enough good things. Each lesson builds on the last and Nick tailors them to my ability and musical interests mixing in enough music theory, which makes learning both productive and enjoyable. Most importantly I feel like I’m beginning to understand how music works and not just blindly memorizing patterns or scales. I considered online courses before choosing Nick, but there’s no substitution for one-to-one instruction. Nick’s feedback and instruction are invaluable.

I was a little concerned about trying to pick up guitar in my early 40s, but its been a rewarding experience so far and I’m looking forward to more lessons with Nick.

I was not home but my son said he enjoyed it very much and is looking for the next one.
Michael
My wife Martha was very please with Paul and the lesson plan.
Angie
Paul has been teaching my 10 year-old son for about 8 weeks now and I have to say that I am very happy with his progress. My son opens the piano as soon as he gets home and begins practicing, with no pushing from me. Paul tries to keep the music as relevant as he can, for a beginner like my son, and he is very patient in his listening and teaching.

Mary-Elizabeth taught me violin for 2 years. I was brand new and she made picking up violin easy and enjoyable. She recognizes current and future problems and suggests exercises to correct them. She always has a positive attitude, which helped me avoid getting frustrated. Her classes were relaxed and thorough. I could not have asked for a better teacher!
Alexandra
I have a great experience of teaching with Mary ! I was already violonist but she helped me discover the wonderful world of fiddle music. I had a complete classical training and I wanted to be more free with my music so Traditional Irish tunes where the best !
Mary is very kind, patient, sweet, funny and will know how to adjust to your need without any doubt. She is a awesome musician in a great variety of music so have your pick !
Stine
We met Mary-Elizabeth for the first time in January 2009 by recommendation of The Royal Danish Academy of Music.
We were looking for a private violin teacher for my daughter Elisabeth, age 13, who at that time had never played an instrument before and was clearly shy and nervous about the project.
From the very first lesson, Mary-Elizabeth not only showed the skills and the basic technique of teaching the violin to younger children, but most impressing was her enthusiasme and joy that immidiately spread to the student. You could tell, that this was a teacher who loved playing too!!
And that opened all the doors for the difficult practising and today I have a daughter who enjoys so much playing that she brings the violin on every holiday to make sure she always has the instrument nearby!
I can sincerely recommend Mary-Elizabeth for teaching and I guarantee you, the students will love playing and look foreward to her lessons!

I had an amazing experience taking vocal lessons with Jo. I came in to our lessons having a lot of experience with playing the guitar, and I could tell right away that Jo had a knack for teaching based on the experience and abilities of her students. She taught me vocal warmups that I use regularly now, helped me work through some of my favorite songs from multiple genres, and helped give me confidence to pursue singing more. I can't wait to take lessons with her again in the future, and would highly recommend her as an instructor!
Annie
Joanna is a talented and highly knowledgeable instructor, who clearly has a wide range of musical training. You can expect a well rounded lesson addressing musicality, technique, and posture. Her demeanor is excellent for working with both children and adults.

Joanna is a wonderful teacher. Warm, patient, and detail-oriented. Incredibly talented musician to boot. I highly recommend!

"Remi is a sweet and wonderful teacher. He is patient and easy going with lots of life lessons as well as music lessons. Learning new a new instrument is "never hard, just challenging and fun" as Remi always says. I have been taking Ukulele lessons with him for a few months now and am amazed at my progress. His home is very comfortable and welcoming. His wife is often near by and always friendly with a hello and kind gesture. He is also flexible with schedule changes as my work schedule can change from week to week which is helpful. I highly recommend picking up a new hobby and working with him as your mentor and teacher."

"My sister bought 5 months of ukulele lessons for my 7-old-daughter as a gift and it has been a wonderful experience! At first, I was a little unsure of how online lessons would work out, especially for a 7-year-old, but Glenn kept my daughter engaged and fielded all technical challenges with grace and skill. He introduced things clearly and systematically, but I was most impressed with his sensitivity to appeal to my daughter's particular interests. Rather than giving her canned kiddy beginner pieces to start with (which certainly would have been easier for him), he asked what songs she liked and then transposed them himself to her level. That takes effort and dedication and really sets Glenn apart. Furthermore, Glenn met Jackie's brother one day and learned that he plays guitar and asked if they wanted something to play together. He evaluated my son's level and again, transposed a wonderful little arrangement for them to play together. It was wonderful that they had such an opportunity and everyone in the family loved getting to hear their duet. Glenn has truly succeeded in establishing a genuine interest in this instrument for my daughter, and I am grateful and touched by the way he tailored a program just for her. She has enjoyed the lessons very much and says she wants to go to California and meet Glenn face-to-face one day."
