Henri B.

Phoenix, AZ

About Henri

Aside from being mostly self-taught and playing drums since he could hold the pots and pans, Henri is an experienced, focused teacher and musician who really enjoys seeing students achieve their goals and desires musically. He has also studied privately with former Berklee Graduate Al Pahanish Jr (Powerman 5000), and former Capitol Records recording artist Morrison Moon.  He is a goal-oriented individual with a versatile background and a relaxed, "let's have fun while we learn" attitude. Henri believes music should always be fun and inspiring for everyone, no matter what skill level. FUN is always the focus, because if you are not having fun, why are you doing it?  Henri also has years of experience touring both nationally and internationally with several award-winning Arizona-based ...

Henri is a gem. He is the perfect combination of cool and a serious musician. He is able to win over the respect of kids and truly teach them! There is no need to look any further for a music teacher!

To start with, Henri is fun to be around, DO NOT underestimate this. I have had the strict authoritarian and the the wallflower and in both cases, I ended up not showing up so often than I just quit. It took me a few times of going to my lesson to realize what it was that made this time so different, and it is quite simply that I like being there for more than just the lesson.
In terms of his lesson quality and knowledge of the subject, I can only speak to his guitar knowledge. I guess before I begin, I should say that I am a beginner, and spend most of my time in life doing the things I have to do rather than the things I want to do. (kids) Anyhow, once again, Henri hit the mark. He asked me my goals and then challenged me to get there while not pressuring me too much to practice. (like I said, not a wallflower, and not an authoritarian) Some lessons were theory, scales, and or chords, and some were just me learning a song, which is essentially the fun way of learning chords and picking techniques.
At the end of the day, the entire experience has exceeded my expectations, and while my practice between lessons is certainly lacking, I am making serious progress. One fine day, I will play that coffee house and my decent singing and average guitar will fill the air and with any luck will only turn heads in a good way!

Henri is an excellent teacher! I have been a teacher myself for more than 15 years and I recommend him without reservation. He works with my daughter who is five years old and she is always excited about her lessons. She is making excellent progress and is eager to do more. She feels well-supported by Henri who encourages her to take risks with her playing while making her feel that she is doing a great job. Music lessons with this teacher are well worth the money and an excellent investment. We are lucky to have found him!

As a colleague of Perry, we often discussed the psychological aspects of programming the subconscious in order to bring the most out of ourselves and our students. Perry is a world class pro player, and his ability to articulate ideas is profound. Students could greatly benefit from studying under him.

Mollie K.

Phoenix, AZ

About Mollie

I have been a musician all my life -- started learning the piano at age 3. I am classically trained, was going to be a concert pianist, but then when I became 18, I realized that I wanted to explore other genres of music. I have played big band jazz, was in a professional original rock band and played on the stage with many famous rock musicians, have played with many different bands in almost every style of music (including hip hop), and am an accomplished studio musician as well. I love music, period. I also am a percussionist and vocal coach. I also can teach church musicians to play "outside the hymnal." (I have played in almost every kind of church, including gospel) *** Lesson Details *** I am very laid back, I use a variety of curriculums and methods, depending on what is ...

Extremely talented and patient

Mollie has a gift. I can't get enough of listening to her play the piano. She is an accomplished pianist and performer. Mollie has taught children of all ages and is extremely patient and effective with them. I believe if you are wishing to grow musically, than Mollie can help you whether you are a child wishing to play the piano or an adult wishing to write music. I highly recommend Mollie as a music teacher.

Making Music Fun For Everyone!

Mollie is a great instructor with a great knowledge base. She genuinely wants everyone to enjoy music as much as she does. She cares enough to mold the lessons around her students, i.e. if one wants to learn a particular song first, then that is what happens. She makes it fun too. She is kind, patient, and very humble. She knows music, to the core and back again. It has been a real honor to have been able to study with Mollie. If you need someone who can play the entire music genre, classic piano to the latest hits on the radio, Jazz Standards to Improvisational Masterpieces, Mollie is tops.

Mollie is the one piano teacher who was able to get through to me and make it so it was easy and fun to use my left hand. She is patient, and very knowledgeable. Even though I came to her as an adult, I've observed her interacting with children of different ages over the years and she always treats people with respect and dignity. Furthermore, I have known of several of her students going on to enjoy successful music careers. I highly recommend her!

Cassandra C.

Phoenix, AZ

About Cassandra

Welcome to Studio C! I graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson. I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio. I'm pretty down to earth and strive ...

As a choral singer, Cassie's instruction was just what I needed to expand into solo work. Lessons are always fun but balanced with stretching and challenging exercises.

Cassandra has a lovely and gentle way of encouraging the best out of her students. One of her strengths is her uplifting and positive reinforcement. Because she believes that singing is more an outpouring of one's soul, she will always do her best to make you feel comfortable as she engages you in singing and also as she engages you as a person.

I enjoy her as a teacher and also as a friend. I believe I will know her for the rest of my life and continue to take lessons from her as much as possible. I highly recommend her!

Jeffrey O.

Phoenix, AZ

About Jeffrey

My Price: There are a lot of people on this site who teach lessons; I've looked through profiles...and their prices. Many of them do not have degrees in music and/or their lessons are expensive. I am a professional musician and educator with the lowest rates I can afford. My pricing is low to be competitive and does not in any way reflect the quality of the lesson. I believe good lessons should be affordable to everyone at a weekly basis. My Teaching Experience: I have taught general music K-8 in a charter school and basically had to build a music program with no funding and almost no supplies. I left this job in favor of teaching privately because the staff and administration were horribly disrespectful and unappreciative of what I did for their school. Teaching privately ...

Dr Jeff has been doing an amazing job with my 6 year old son. He listens to what my son has to say and really encourages him to learn the musical notes as well as how to play correctly. He is very encouraging and patient.

Dr Jeff's philosophy is really great for fostering a love of piano playing. We recently had to miss a piano lesson but were going to do something else that was fun as well. My son's reaction was, "Aw. That'll be fun, but I wanted to go to piano." In my opinion, very rare is the piano teacher who can encourage that enthusiasm!

Dr. Jeff has helped bring music back in my life. I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and had been trying to teach myself because of my past experience (played trumpet from elementary school– 2 yrs of collage). Learning that way was not ideal though and I was really not progressing at all. I finally decided to start lessons and I can’t tell how grateful I am that I did. Dr. Jeff has helped me learn and practice correctly and I really feel that I am progressing well. I am having so much fun learning and playing.
