She is super cheerful and helpful. I've been having fun taking lessons from her. I 200% recommend you to have her as your teacher. I don't think 5 stars are enough to rate her. She deserves more! Lol.

I was impressed by her passion for music and teaching. She had all the ideas in detail about how she would direct the lessons. I'm pretty sure she could handle the advanced level. I can't wait for the next lesson.

Jerry is the greatest, with a particularly wonderful way of inspiring children with a fun and humorous spirit, alleviating anxiety, while promoting them to learn skills both concretely and even abstractly. Finding him on here, and experiencing his giftedness in teaching my nine-year-old daughter was a godsend. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

Julia is a superb, sensitive coach, who knows how to help her students connect with their audiences through body language, voice tone, and word selection and emphasis. She gives one the confidence to be at his or her best when in front of the audience. She has helped me with every critically important speech I have delivered during the last 5 years. I look forward to working with Julia again on my next audience-facing event.
Mike
Julia is a great voice teacher. She goes beyond exercises and posture and talks about presentation, mood, musicianship, connecting with an audience. One of her expressions is "Reach for the joy!" I am an old guy and have been playing various instruments forever but never studied voice. Her lessons are always inspiring and have given me not just technique, but truly a new outlook on life.
Lauren
I began taking lessons with Julia back in March 2020 and I am still continuing lessons with her. I am training in classical/opera and musical theater performance. I have been singing since a very young age and no teacher has taught me what Julia has taught me. She has pointed out in detail how I am singing and where to properly sing using different vocal techniques. Julia will break down step by step, body posture, breathing, and vocal placement when developing and learning vocal skills and techniques. Techniques that I was never properly taught or aware of. With her incredible ear, instructions and teaching, I have felt such a large improvement in my singing capability in a course of year and as helped me achieve my goals and build confidence whenever I have the opportunity to perform. Julia is absolutely talented and I am so grateful she is my teacher. I highly recommend for any aspiring classical, musical or opera singer to take lessons with her.

As a music teacher of over 10 years I take a fun but structured approach to learning the piano. I've taught all ages and I individually work with each student to help them learn the music that they want to and reach the goals that they set for themselves. I work with each student to help mold their learning experience specifically to them. We will typically start with exercises and music theory and then move to music, but am willing to adapt to what each student is wanting and needing. I will send written individual feedback after the lesson to help remind the student of what we are working on. I hope to have the chance to share my love of music with you!

She is encouraging and gives music that is just the right challenge. She has been progressing me every week and it’s been so exciting learning new things weekly.

"I was very interested in piano when I was in college, but I didn't have any background in piano. I took several piano lessons from Ben. He was always very patient and detailed in explanations. He also incorporated music theory to help me improve my understanding of music. I wanted to learn Canon in D, but it was too hard for me. Ben rewrote Canon in D to make it easy enough for me to play. After a few lessons, I learned the whole music!

Ben is also qualified in GMAT training and proofreading. Ben helped me with GMAT grammar, readings, and critical reasoning. He was exceptional in grammar! For the proofreading, he went point by point and gave valuable suggestions. He explained every correction to me to make sure I understood all of them."

"Niki is an outstanding piano teacher. She began teaching my daughter when she was 9 years old, and after 3 years of lessons, I am extremely pleased with how well my daughter plays the piano. Niki makes learning piano fun and interesting for children by allowing them to choose some of their own popular pieces. Her teaching style is the perfect balance of friendly and encouraging, yet very professional with an emphasis on progress. She sets high expectations and inspires her students through her own love of music. I would highly recommend Niki to any student fortunate enough to work with her."

"I met Prof. Ashot 7 years ago. By now, he has taught my eldest child for 7 years, my second child for 5 years, and my third child (youngest) for 2 years. Knowing that I have retained his teaching service for so long should tell you all you need to know about his teaching skills. But I will elaborate anyway . . . He is GREAT with children! He is patient, warm, and encouraging, and his love of music and teaching shines through. Not every student learns the same way, so Prof. Ashot, as a wise and experienced teacher, alters his teaching methods to suit each student individually. Below are a few simple words of praise from my kids:

“Prof. Ashot is a very experienced piano artist. I enjoy working with him very much because he is patient and has taught me a lot in the last 7 years.”
Phi, 13 years old.

“Prof. Ashot is a very experienced teacher with a knack for music. He has good taste in music. I have learned much from him and I’m learning more every week.”
Nhi, 11 years old.

“Prof. Ashot is a man with talent and skill. Prof. Ashot pushes us beyond our limit, but I love to work with him very much.”
Quoc, 10 years old"

"First lesson went very well. Carl is knowledgeable and quickly identified my son's abilities and the areas he needs to work on. He's encouraging and positive while keeping my son focused. This is not usually an easy task, but Carl's natural style made it effortless. After the disappoint I've had with a previous piano teacher, I believe I've found someone my son can relate with and will want to work hard for. Isn't that ability to inspire students to work hard and do their best the pinnacle of what we all want out of teachers?"
