Alice is great with kids. My five-year-old enjoys learning piano with her. She is very patient and good at explaining things in a simple way that kids could understand quickly.

Alice is the best! I have had multiple piano teachers and she is by far the most patient and professional instructor I have had. My playing has literally improved significantly since studying with her. I highly recommend her!

Samuel
My son is quite shy and anxious about performing below what he develops as an expectation for himself - in everything, from sports to school work to music. Nicole's combination of professional excellence, efficiency and warmth made him immediately feel comfortable and open to constructive feedback . Nicole's teaching style is excellent. He is improving noticeably with every lesson.
Daisy H.
Daisy very much enjoyed her first lesson with Nicole and said she was very encouraging and gave her great pointers about how to improve. We are so pleased and look forward to more lessons to come!

She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.
Les
I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

"Excellent, patient instructor. She didn't let my bad habits go unchallenged, giving me kind and consistent correction. The seemingly small corrections to form reduced fatigue and improved my playing. She was always great at communication. The best part for me was she did not insist I as an older adult learner practice from an elementary book. She suggested interesting pieces and studies that challenged me without overwhelming. Highly recommend Jessica for all age levels."

Is Cello Hard to Learn? Read THIS Before Taking Lessons

Many beginning musicians wonder, “Is cello hard to learn?” The process of learning the cello is not difficult, but it’s important to keep in mind that the cello is not an instrument of instant gratification. It does require focused, daily practice time and a good teacher to guide you along the way. How far you progress with cello is a direct result of the amount of quality time you put into practicing the instrument. Even someone who puts in just 30 minutes a day will notice a signi …
