Mr. Aragon has continually shown me his love for music through his teaching. As an instructor, he paid close attention to my technique when playing the piano, guitar, or flute, and helped me improve it. Through the years, he has strongly influenced my love for music, and I continue to use what he has taught me when playing instruments and music outside the classroom. Overall, Mr. Aragon is a great, professional instructor who is passionate about teaching students music through music theory and his love of rock n roll and classical music.

I went for my first lesson this morning & John was excellent! Very professional & informative. I look forward to more upcoming lessons in the following weeks!!!
Pauline
Mr.Aragon was my son’s grade school music teacher for 8 yrs. He is very patient and encouraging, and my son really enjoyed it when Mr.Aragon would teach the class music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Now my son appreciates Motown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Billy Joel as much as he does current alternative music, and he is 13!

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!

Hi! I was born and raised in Soviet Union, where I studied piano since I was 5 years old. I am a native Russian speaker, a classical pianist, singer and professional educator. I received my degree in piano performance and pedagogy in 1992, and have been teaching since then. I have lived (and taught) all over the world, and I love what I do. I love teaching, and have a extensive experience (over 20 years) teaching music, piano and singing. I can conduct lessons in English, Russian or Spanish. I place great importance on cultivating passion for learning and music in my students, as learning with passion is the key to excellence.

Katya is a wery good teacher
Veronica
Katya has been giving online lessons to my two children, ages 14 and 12, for the past 6 months. Before this, the children received in person lessons from Katya for 3 years. Katya is an excellent pianist and piano tutor. She is patient and kind. She always looks for ways to motivate the different skill levels. She is very talented and sparks in children the love for learning and becoming avid at playing piano. Katya also gave piano lessons to other children from the same school my children attended and they all loved the piano lessons with Katya. I highly recommend Katya as a knowledgeable and loving piano instructor.

Great intro Class! Very excited to be moving forward with lessons in vocals
Doug
Storm is an amazing teacher, and I've learned so much from our lessons. He's patient, knowledgeable, and always willing to answer your questions (even outside of the lesson). He creates a plan for each student and makes sure you are progressing. I've learned more about guitar in 6 months with Storm than the previous 20 years of me trying to learn on my own. Highly recommended!

As a classical musician I understand what is expected of me to record effectively. Now more than ever do I think that students should learn how to operate within audio software. The concepts can be learned using GarageBand if the student does not want to pay full price for Logic Pro X. I will explain the process step by step, and all the student will need is a computer running the latest version of Mac OS.

Erick is a thorough and patient teacher. My son's techniques have improved since he started taking lessons Erick. Erick even introduced editing music with Garage Band to my son. I like the range of topics he brings to his lessons.
My only complaint is Erick's lack of responsiveness to emails. He never responds to correspondence.

If you are considering online lessons with Erick, do it! He is attentive, considerate, kind, informed, proactive and intuitive. My 11 year old has been taking lessons with him since May 2020 and it has been a wonderful experience for our son and for us. We will continue to work with Erick for as we can.

Steve assessed my playing and immediately homed in on some well established bad habits as well as outlining a plan to fill all the gaps in knowledge I have from never having learned the theory.
