My daughter has learned so much from Bradley already, and it’s only her 5th lesson. He teaches her breathing as well as vocal techniques to maximize her performance.

I have attended lessons under Mr. Bradley for several months, and I would highly recommend him to others. He is patient, understanding, and persistent. His competence is unquestionable, and I look forward to studying under him in the future.

Very knowledgeable on techniques and exercises to improve performance and vocal health. I had a very pleasant experience working with Brad as he helped me develop ways to strengthen and preserve my voice while I work through a demanding professional performance schedule. I look forward to working with him again.

My son has been learning piano with Mr. Allen for about two months. My son loves his piano class. Mr. Allen is very patient and encouraging with kids. He knows how to correct kids' mistakes without hurting their feelings and challenge them properly so they can make progress. He understands kids' mind very well. We were very glad that we chose Mr. Allen as our piano teacher.

I started my piano class with Mr. Allen last year. I had no music background and knew not much piano. Mr. Allen allows me to use my Faber piano adult adventure book, and also have me use other book and tools for my study. He is very knowledgeable, patient and fun to learn from. I have made progress since then.

Brad is very knowledgeable. Very impressed. Being nervous he helped me to relax some. Can't wait to get back next week. I think I am going to enjoy learning to sing with Brad.

Mr. Allen is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about music and explains things clearly. He is good at seeing my mistakes and helping me fix them. I started taking lessons with Mr. Allen in November of 2013 and thanks to him I have been improving ever since.

We selected Brad Allen because he was using Faber&Faber's Piano Adventures. Since then, my three children have not only excelled in their skills, but they have grown more and more to enjoy playing. Brad is fun and personable and he gives his students the freedom to play the things which will interest them. The amount of practice homework he gives is manageable but still enough to increase their skills. As a parent, I appreciate his flexibility when our schedule gets complicated. I fully trust Brad Allen with the time he spends with my children.

Encore Music Studios has provided our daughter with excellent instruction and guidance for piano and voice. It is obvious that her level of performance and musical knowledge is always advancing at Encore Music Studios. Brad Allen has been our daughters piano teacher or four years and her voice teacher for two years. He is a professional and highly skilled musician, vocalist and teacher. He encourages her to challenge herself to become a better musician and vocalist. Her piano and voice performance skills are continuously improving as a result. She thoroughly enjoys her time at Encore and looks forward to every lesson and recital. The entire staff at Encore is wonderful to the students and is always supportive and proud of each of them. Encore provides quality recital opportunities that give the student an appropriate venue to successfully showcase their musical progress. We can highly recommend Encore Music Studios.

My daughter is just beginning her third year of taking piano lessons with Brad, which has been great. She has provided nothing but positive feedback regarding her experience with him. You can tell that he is very patient and comfortable working with children. I was terrified of my piano teacher as a child, which really prevented me from ever loving it. Thankfully, my daughter's experience with Brad is not like that. She enjoys her lessons and always is in a good mood when finished. Brad does a good job of understanding her capabilities and progresses accordingly. As a result, my daughter never gets frustrated or discouraged, which is important for a 10 year old.
Another fantastic aspect of working with Brad is his flexibility. My daughter is involved in other activities which changes her availability times for piano lessons. Brad is very understanding, and goes above and beyond to try and accommodate our changing schedules throughout the year. We've always been able to find a day and time that works for both of us. This is really important for a busy family such as ours. I'm looking forward to my other daughter beginning piano lessons with Brad in the next couple of years once she is old enough.

Brad Allen has been teaching both my sons, 9 and 11 years old, for the past 3 years. He is very patient and the children seem to respond very well to his calm demeanor. They love going to piano class, this is one thing I don't have to fight about, and they are always happy to practice at home. They have come a long way with his instruction and has been able to keep them motivated and excited about learning to play the piano. We are very lucky to have found him as a teacher.

Brad is an excellent piano teacher. I have watched him guide my 9-year-old son over a two year period. My son know has a strong musical foundation in piano he can apply to other instruments. Brad has a very relaxed and calm demeanor. He guides students in a subtle way, so they take ownership of their learning and maintain motivation. Most importantly, Brad's personality creates a stress-free learning environment. This is crucial for children to maintain a love and passion for music. Brad is very encouraging, warm and cares about the students he teaches. I highly recommended him to parents who want to instill a love of music in their children!

Our son has taken piano lessons from Mr. Allen for 3 years. He started when he was 6 years old. Mr. Allen uses praise to motivate and gives feedback in a manner that inspires our son to improve. He also encourages creativity and will work with song material that interests our son. Our son continues to love playing the piano and feels a great sense of accomplishment with the skills he has developed under Mr. Allen's guidance. I highly recommend Mr. Allen as a music instructor.
