Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.

Both of my children took piano lessons with Dr. Alex. He is a patient instructor who puts the needs of his students first. I like his demeanor with the kids as well. Dr. Alex is always in high demand, yet he is flexible and easy to work with.

My son has been taking lessons with Alex for over five years. They have developed a fabulous rapport and mutual respect. Alex challenges my son and helps to further his skill level and technique. He provides support and suggestions when choosing new pieces to play. Alex is flexible with regards to accommodating schedule changes and make up lessons. We couldn’t be more impressed with Alex as a piano teacher and mentor for our son and we are thankful that he shares his time and talents with young piano students.

I took piano with Alex a few years ago. A fantastic performer himself, he greatly improved my technique and musicality. As an instructor, he is demanding yet very friendly. I will highly recommend him to anyone.

Alex is the BEST classical piano instructor ever! I have studied with him continuously for 6 years. He is patient, logical, willing to share his knowledge & technical expertise. If you are thinking of taking piano lessons, or giving your child this life-changing opportunity, I highly recommend this superb teacher and pianist.

Dr. Kostritsa is very dedicated to teaching and his classes are always fun, pleasant and effective. He can quickly point out the area need to be improved and give handful of instructions and tips on techniques and ways of reading & playing that would benefit my kid in a long term to be a better pianist. He understands how busy when kid entering high school with many activities. He adjusted his teaching style to fit the situation. With his help, my boy was able to win second place from International piano competition and played at Carnegie Hall at his Junior year.
I would highly recommend his lessons to anyone interested in playing piano.

Alex taught piano to both my 6 year old and 12 year old. He was able to teach effectively in a way that matched their individual interests and capability. He lets you move through songs at a pace that works for you. If you are highly motivated and practice long, you will be able to move through songs quickly and vice versa. This really kept my children motivated. Also, he is very knowledgeable with a variety of piano music and gave kids great lessons on how to present yourself during performances. Great experience overall!
