Alex is an awesome teacher, very knowledgeable and focused on details. He goes at the perfect pace so I don't feel overwhelmed. I've browsed YouTube for Ableton lessons, and it feels chaotic to learn this way. Ableton can be intimidating, but Alex organizes the information and presents the information is a digestible way. Our lessons cover the perfect amount of information.

Private French Teacher

I have been a professional French teacher for seven years. I have spent my undergraduate and graduate years studying French language and literature. I received my Master's degree in Modern French Literature from Jean Moulin University in Lyon, France. I can easily adapt my classes to the needs of each particular student; from explaining basic grammar lessons to my beginner students to challenging my more advanced students with diverse and complex conversation topics. My method of teaching, depending on the student, can involve using textbooks, videos, books, movies, and songs.

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

"I enjoyed my first lesson with Aliaksandra. She put me at my ease while challenging me. The one on one is exactly what I need to improve my ability to use the language. While I have been studying on my own for quite awhile, there is no substitute for having to actually use the language. On top of all of this, Aliaksandra is personable and fun."

"I have been learning french for many years through my school system, and I have never really been confident in the language itself even though I've really liked it. Along with learning the smaller important details about french, I've been learning how to be confident with my speech, and how to sound more like a natural french speaker. Zach is also super kind, and will help you with any french questions you have, in and out of your lessons."
