Learned so much in my first lesson

Diane taught me so much in a just a few lessons. She was very clear and had a great teaching personality. I would recommend any student, beginner-advanced to let Diane help you become a great violin player.

She's a great teacher

Diane has been teaching me the violin for almost four years. As her student I've had the opportunity to play at places such as Strathmore and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. She teaches me both traditional and Suzuki methods, so there's a lot of flexibility concerning learning techniques.

We only just started with Marvin, but he is professional and patient with my son. My first impression of Marvin is very good and he is very soft spoken and friendly! In just two lessons, I have already seen progress and we are now looking forward to working weekly with him. My son choose Marvin as his teacher, after reading about him on the web-site and it was his choice to continue lessons. He is very excited about learning more and playing guitar with Marvin! In fact, we are adding an extra supplemental session between lessons. THANK YOU MARVIN!!

I would definitely recommend Marvin as a music coach/instructor to anyone. He has vast set of knowledge when it comes to music and its theory and he continues to inspire me as I learn more about music. He incorporates not only his knowledge but also his experiences when teaching guitar and music in general. He is open to new ideas on how to make learning as fun and as interesting as possible, for instance, he starts off with what you know and what you want to know more, in order to create a lesson plan specifically designed to your style and passion.

Marvin has helped me build a strong foundation in music, and I believe that he can also help you accomplish the same goal!

Aleksis has been the best teacher (in any subject) that I've ever had! He's very calm and patient, but also stays focused on teaching. Every time I have a question he has a good answer, proving to me that he is very knowledgeable.

Most importantly the results of his instruction have been excellent. I've made more progress under his tutelage in two months than I've made over a couple of years on my own.

An excellent teacher and very affable, I can only think of good things to write about Mr. Aleksis!

I started singing backup vocals in a band and at the age of 57 it's not easy. Alexis has been great. He is very patient, kind and encouraging. I enjoy our lessons and feel he is getting the best of my abilities.
I'm having a great time.

Helped me find my passion

In middle school, I really didn't have very much direction and I was afraid of going to high school. To make friends, I decided to go out for one of the high school's audition choirs, and though I didn't make it into the elite choir, I made the women's choir. I was happy, but I was afraid to sing out even in front of the other girls in the choir. I didn't have any confidence in my voice and most of them knew how to read music and sight-sing. I didn't. I started taking lessons with Ms. Jenni in the fall of my freshman year in the hopes of catching up with the other girls and eventually auditioning into the elite choir before my senior year.

That was three years ago. I now read music and sight sing and have much more confidence in my voice. I made the elite choir at my school in the spring of my sophomore year-- and in my junior year we performed at the White House! Jenni has encouraged me to participate in competitions and summer music programs that have helped me grow even more. I am seriously considering majoring in music in college after I graduate in 2014.

Jenni has been such a wonderful teacher. She really "gets me" and her encouragement has helped me find my passion. She's always positive and helpful and treats each student like they are her only one. I just love her and I will miss her when I go to college--because without her I really don't know where I would have ended up.

I really appreciated the way Jenni made me feel welcome and comfortable through her outgoing attitude and encouragement. She also made a point to relate to me on a personal level which was very important to me as well and contributed to my comfortability and progress. I definitely plan on taking lessons from her again in the future!

Kristin has been so great for me. She is patient and kind, and she encourages me to stretch my learning and understanding. If her explanation of something does not sink into my brain, she explains another way. She is also a talented pianist herself and I love to hear her play.
