excellent teacher with an exceptional knowledge.
Ariel is a great teacher. He is patient and he encouraged in a great way. I am very happy and your school should be very proud to count with such a great teacher. I am a true beginner and he gave me vocal and breathing exercises that will hopefully lead me to tune and sing. I am a teacher of English and my goal is not to perform . However I realized that singing is a very relaxing and therapeutic hobby. thanks a lot!!+ Read More
My 13 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Ariel. He is an excellent teacher, very meticulous and knowledgeable. We highly recommend him!
Best teacher, really knowledge on piano and will help you strengthen your weak areas. And has patience +
Great and super nice
I've never taken singing lessons before, I had two 30min singing lessons with Ariel and it was very impressive to me how much knowledge he can share with you in only thirty min, specially with someone who has no understanding on the subject. He's very motivating and e makes you feel that it's possible to become a singer it's just a matter of practice! Looking forward to see him soon! This is a five star instructor!+ Read More

So far my daughter is enjoying working with Ariel. And after 6 lessons showing real improvement.
Great input in how to approach my singing.
Ariel's patient and very good at explaining concepts in both layman's and technical terms. I was nervous about singing in front of someone at first but Ariel is such a genuine friendly person, that I got comfortable right away.
Very responsible, very patient and great with my kid. Focus on technique and coordination, I recommend Ariel.
Great teacher! Very patient, kind and always looking to make your child make the most progress. Strongly recommend him!
Wonderful! Every minute put to use, learned so much in 1 hour.
Great teacher, taught me an awesome technique to get started! Real nice and real when it comes down to teaching.
Ariel is a knowledgable and very skilled music teacher. I have only done two classes with him and already see improvements. Ariel makes working on your musical talent fun. He builds your confidence and pushes your limits. Highly recommended!
Just had my first lesson - and despite my nerves, it was better than I had expected! Ariel is very knowledgeable and very easy-going!
Ariel is simply fantastic. I am currently taking lessons from him at the same time as my 11 year old son and 14 year old daughter - simultaneously! He manages all three of our ability and attention levels at the same time and makes sure we have fun while we learn.+ Read More
