Alex has been giving piano classes to my almost 6-yr old girls and he has really well connected with them. He is very flexible and he even introduced guitar to one of the girls when I had expressed that she should maybe try something else! Thank you Alex!
Brandon
Alex is a great teacher, very positive and excellent at using custom teaching techniques to work with the student.

Alex was truly a wonderful teacher. He was so kind, down to earth, patient and educational. He showed such an interest with my son. We're more than happy to invite him in to our home again for more lessons.

Finished my first lesson with Eamon. I am a complete beginner, never took any lessons or anything. Ramon is great! After doing some exercises and sounding completely horrible, he gave me some pointers and immediately I sounded much better. He is great for anyone who is looking to learn a new skill and you can tell he knows what he is doing

David is absolutely awesome! I started with him in his home in Chicago and had to move to Los Angeles for work. We continued our lessons through Skype when I moved and have been doing them ever since! He is patient, fun, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable. He is absolutely wonderful and well worth the money!

David is a bright and multi-talented musician and teacher. He has shared his passion for music with my two daughters, teaching them piano. He is patient and kind. His approach strikes a perfect balance between imparting theory, technique and mechanics and being silly and having fun! Both of my daughters really enjoy him and look forward to their weekly lessons. The two girls are very different in their strengths, interests and personalities. He tailors his lessons to each of them to play to their strengths and tastes beautifully. And he is always positive and encouraging even when they are squirrely. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I have been learning/ working with Bil for several and have LOVED every minute of it. He encourages you to become the musician YOU want to be and pushes you to find YOUR own unique style. He has taught to believe in myself as a musician and to be the best I can be.
Guy F.
Bil is knowledgeable and encouraging. I’m a beginner piano student, with aspirations of playing jazz. And while I’m not yet playing any jazz standards, Bil has taught me the beauty of extended chords, how to quickly build certain voicing of 7th and 9th chords, and encouraging me not only to play with them, but also to start modifying other songs I’ve already learned with said chords. His love for music theory and composition are evident, and he is eager to share his knowledge with his students at their own pace and level of understanding. For anyone considering Bil, I would encourage you to take a lesson with him and experience his easygoing yet focused teaching style.

He is patient and encouraging. He affords his students more than just how-to's - he asks of them to truly connect with the instrument they want to learn. He is well-worth your investment as he will truly invest in you."
