My son has been taking lessons from Cristina for 2 years and wow has he progressed. He loves his lessons, can read music, and is playing well. The struggle is getting him to practice! Cristina has a great blend of warmth, knowledge and discipline that works well for my 6,7, and now 8 year old son. I highly recommend her.
Sarah
Our 8 year old had been taking violin for two years and was about to the point of quitting due to the lack of motivational teaching. I went in search of a teacher that could motivate her while still progressing rapidly each week! My daughter is so eager to please Cristina, because she makes the lessons fun and interesting. When I check in to see how the lesson is going, my daughter is engaged, and answering questions correctly which tells me she's still paying attention - even in the evening hours when she's tired. Cristina mixes classical and popular music as well. I still have to ask my daughter to practice each night but she pulls out her violin on her own a couple of times a week as well. It's a complete 180 from where we were 8 months ago. Cristina is a rare find and I'd recommend her to anyone who wants to ensure their child is getting the best violin training while being inspired!
Everett
Our 11 year old daughter, Drew, started with Cristina for a little over a year, and has made some amazing progress from not knowing how to play, to having great intonation and musicality. Cristina teaches our daughter in a way that works with her interests and learning style, rather than having a regimented curriculum. I think this has allowed Drew to be way more excited about playing.

i've been playing music all my life but since i'm a square parent, it's hard for me to teach drew :) Cristina does a great job giving her guidance during the lesson.
i would highly recommend her as a teacher!

Jonathan did a great job. I’m starting from scratch! Patient and very understanding. Loved it.
Hope
John is a very effective teacher. I took bass lessons and I have improved so much. John is an amazing teacher and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn the bass guitar or upright bass.
Steve
Jonathan taught me when I was around middle school age and has left a lasting impression on how I approach the bass and music 10-ish years later. Under his tutelage I learned music theory, techniques, and all sorts of different genres and styles.

His lessons were always very professional. I always felt challenged, but not overwhelmed, by the material being taught. He also made it easy to be interested in the lessons; he would always ask if there's any song or genre that I wanted to learn and that sort of thing.

Overall, definitely a 5/5 top shelf educator and musician.

Even as an older beginner, Dustin really knows how to show all the details of piano and help me understand them"

"Veroslav is a tremendously patient expert piano instrument for my two children, ages 6 and 12. He has a gentle way of guiding kids who may feel shy. I’m just blown away by my children’s progress in piano skills in just a couple of months, but also see how much their self-confidence has grown through doing well at something completely new! Absolutely recommend Veroslav, and we feel so lucky to have been connected to with him!"

"Ella is a wonderful teacher. She truly loves what she does, and it shows in the way she teaches. My daughter responds so well to her. Ella has a warm, positive approach to teaching, but is gently strict when she needs to be, and is clearly a pro at what she does. We tried a teacher before Ella, but her communication style was just not right for children. Thanks to Ella, my daughter actually enjoys playing piano, looks forward to doing her "homework," and is learning so much at the same time. I would highly recommend Ella to anyone as a piano teacher."

"Great teacher for multiple instruments

This instructor has a solid foundation in music theory which can help students of all skill levels and instrument choice...including voice. I have already benefited from her expertise on both piano and voice as instruments, as well as general music concepts like voice leading, use of scale, tonal variation and dynamic. Very easy to understand and work with. I have no reservations about recommending this instructor."

8 Practical Tips for Learning Piano as an Adult

You're never too old to learn how to play the piano. Below, piano teacher Ryan C. shares eight practical tips for successfully learning piano as an adult... Learning a new instrument is no easy feat, especially as an adult. I’m always amazed by how many people think that learning to play the piano is out of their reach simply because they aren’t kids anymore. Well, frankly, I believe they are wrong in their beliefs! It’s my belief that everyone can learn to play the piano, regard …
