Mary Claire has been a great help in getting me back to playing the piano after a hiatus of 50 years. She is very patient and always comes up with ways to make learning fun and challenging. She sources pieces that will challenge me and has gently brought in theory that I never learned when I was a child.
Gerald F. Miller
I have been taking lessons with Mary Claire for the past three years in her studio. She is absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable and an extremely good pianist and teacher. I am an adult beginner and has taught me so much. She is very patient with my music and has always given constructive input. She frames things in creative and easy to understand ways. I highly recommend.

With a degree in English Literature, reading comprehension has been the most important aspect of my academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals, motifs, and main purpose of each piece you read.

Our focus will of course be on coming to a complete and correct understanding of exactly what you are reading. Depending on the level you are at, our sessions will eventually inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on everything that you read going forward.

Nick worked with my son, a freshman in college, to support his completion of essays in his freshman english class. My son will speak to Nick's tutor skills, but I need to speak to Nick's service - he is incredibly friendly, and his response time is excellent. Any time we needed to ask a question, I got a reply within minutes (or, if he was teaching, at his earliest break). Scheduling sessions can be tricky when doing tutoring, and having a responsive, communicative tutor who is organized and manages an efficient schedule is KEY. Nick is all these things. I highly recommend him as a tutor!

Nick is a great teacher who makes learning fun.He is very dedicated and invested in the success of his students. He is eager to help even after the sessions are over. My daughters can email him anytime before tests or submission of big essays and he reviews them and emails them back with feedback.

I can teach finger picking, sight reading, songs, and reading tab. Acoustic guitar is a wonderful way to start learning to play the guitar because you learn how to make the sounds naturally with the instrument.

My forte and the subject in which I have a degree. Composition is an incredible art form; easy to learn but difficult to master, logical and emotional, it is the thinking person's approach to music. I highly recommend pursuing it to anyone who would learn more about themselves and being a creative artist.

"I started with Celine for piano, but then we started doing half piano and half singing lessons.

Celine and I went through a piano lessons book. It was very helpful learning how to learn a song. I got used to reading notes and how to practice. I came from being self taught through youtube and playing by ear for around a year or 2, but I never learned the traditional and more classical way. I really learned a lot from that.

Singing was more exciting because I grew at a pretty fast rate. Celine is really knowledgable about the different ways a person can use their voice and selecting out warm ups to help the growth of a specific singing technique. My voice got stronger and more stable. My head voice is more natural. My singing background was just doing it for fun since I was a kid.

Me and Celine both like kpop and korean music so I sang those as well as some English and Japanese songs. So pretty flexible there. She was able to give me really good recommendations for songs to sing based on my voice."

I am a 78 yr old who has been self-teaching classical/fingerstyle for years but to really make progress I need instruction from a good teacher.
