Thomas J.

Julian is very patient, kind, understanding and helpful -- communicates extremely well to our ten year old girl who has been diagnosed mild ADHD (not severe enough to merit special education services, but she receives accomodations at school to help her stay on task, complete work, etc. -- e.g., extra time on tests). Julian instructs her in such an excellent manner that she is able to focus well and comprehend directions clearly. We would like to know if Julian has any motivational strategies to help Arryanna who has difficulty staying on task for an appropriate length of time in practice times at home.

Aaron spends quality time with our daughter and goes through material that is appropriate for her playing level. We are extremely pleased with his attention to her positioning and bowing. Great thanks to his teaching to help our daughter to work on skills!
Katie
Aaron teaches piano to my 8 year old daughter, Abby. She is shy but loves piano and she very much looks forward to his visits! He customizes her lessons to her skill level and interests. No question he is a serious musician, but he is also laid back and funny which is perfect for young kids as it puts them at ease. Abby is thriving under Aaron's instruction, I'm so glad we found him!

Eric is a really great teacher! He is very patient with my 13 year old daughter, a beginner, during her lessons and always seems very supportive and enthusiastic as she slowly progresses from week to week. He is an accomplished musician himself and plays along with her to show her how something should sound. Eric has a nice laid back attitude, is very on target with my daughter's musical tastes and he has a great personality! I am very happy with his teaching methods and we hope to continue her lessons with him for the next few years.
Tahir A.
Great instructor. Has a lot of background knowledge, which may be intimdating to some. But he does a good job of identifying strengths and weaknesses upon which to work.
Lawrence Neal
Eric was great. He is obviously very knowledgeable but he is also easy to talk to and seemed to quickly understand what I knew and what I didn't. A good communicator and his set up for the lessons was very comfortable and easy to find. One hour lesson flew by!

Songwriting was a discipline I learned through years of experimentation on my own path. I have written hundreds of songs and played them in every venue from street corners to major festivals. Having studied songs from all through history and across cultures, I have gathered a very deep base of knowledge about how to reach people and how to unify your own creativity into a creation that could reach millions of people. I write a YouTube show and blog about songwriting, so this is an area I feel I am on the cutting edge with.

In lessons you can expect...

-Musical study: I teach many formulas for finding new ideas and expressing them in a song
-Career coaching/collaboration: songwriting is a collaborative art form between writers, performers and marketers. A team is needed to give a song the best chance it can have at reaching new audiences.
-Performance training: connecting the ideas in your head to the audience requires dedication and a balance between writing and practice. I am

He took the time to start at my daughter’s level but also to push her to improve as well! He gave good constructive criticism and homework for her to improve faster!

Jonathan cares deeply about his craft. He has taught me how to be a better guitarist. I also have observed him teach many students, including some with disabilities. He tailors his teaching to the student he is working with, and he makes music fun!

"We moved to Mumbai for my husband’s job and decided to continue to take lessons via Facetime from Ms. Maria. We’ve been with her for 7 years and are truly happy with our children’s progress. Our oldest (12) will be auditioning for international competitions beginning this fall and our youngest (7) has been going through about 2 levels a year with perfect marks on the ABRSM. She’s fun, engaging, and has a great relationship with the students that make her family. We make sure to fly back stateside for at least one of her studio recitals per year and it’s well worth it. Recommend highly."

"My 10 year old son has been taking lessons with Steve for almost 2 years. Prior to Steve, Nathan was enrolled in group lessons at the park district. After a unpleasant experience with the group lessons , we decided to try private lessons. Steve has done an amazing job working with Nathan. Like most kids, some days it is hard to keep his attention, but Steve does an amazing job. He has kept Nathan focused while still allowing him to have fun playing the guitar. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Steve as a musical instructor."

Writing a catchy song that delivers a strong message can be quite difficult. Here, voice teacher Emmanuel N. shares the songwriting tips you can glean from several famous singers...     When it comes to lyric-writing and songwriting, nobody can really teach you how to do it – it’s better to show by example.
