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.

Excellent

I am an adult learner new to music lessons, and so was very anxious during my first violin session with Raycurt. I can't say enough about his professionalism and easy teaching style. We spoke prior to the meeting, and he told me what I needed to get started. More impressive, he showed up during a snowstorm! I highly recommend him.

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'm having a great time.

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Priscilla has a lovely, easy going personality while being motivated to get the best out of a student during the lesson time. She is very perceptive and can easily understand what will motivate and "click " with a student. Priscilla recommended apps for tuning our guitar as well as songs to practice at home. She is proactive and easy to communicate with regarding changes in schedules and weather issues (we started in the beginning of 2015 and it snowed a bunch for this area). We appreciate her guidance for practicing since we do not play the guitar.
