Tom is an amazing teacher, so gentle, patient and kind with our shy 12 year old. Tom was great in engaging him and we feel very good about their relationship already after the first lesson. He seems to know right away how to tailor the lesson based on where our son is at. He has already made improvements in his first class. We look forward to future lessons with Tom.

I have been learning/ working with Bil for several and have LOVED every minute of it. He encourages you to become the musician YOU want to be and pushes you to find YOUR own unique style. He has taught to believe in myself as a musician and to be the best I can be.
Guy F.
Bil is knowledgeable and encouraging. I’m a beginner piano student, with aspirations of playing jazz. And while I’m not yet playing any jazz standards, Bil has taught me the beauty of extended chords, how to quickly build certain voicing of 7th and 9th chords, and encouraging me not only to play with them, but also to start modifying other songs I’ve already learned with said chords. His love for music theory and composition are evident, and he is eager to share his knowledge with his students at their own pace and level of understanding. For anyone considering Bil, I would encourage you to take a lesson with him and experience his easygoing yet focused teaching style.

Always enjoy voice lessons with Madeline! She works with you to help you learn at your own pace and is genuinely interested in what inspires you musically.

When lessons shifted from in-person to online due to COVID restrictions, Madeline helped to make the transition easy.
Brita
My daughter has taken lessons with Madeline through her school this past year and asked if she could continue with private lessons - we said an enthusiastic yes! The progress she has made in the last year is incredible and she has so much fun. Our son recently started lessons as well and we couldn't be more pleased. Madeline is a pleasure to work with and our children look forward to their weekly lessons. I highly recommend her.

Madeline Huss is a delightful voice teacher. I enjoy every lesson. She is rigorous and knows what a student needs to improve. She gives good positive feedback and adjusts to her students needs and abilities.

About Soraya

About me, I have been playing the guitar for more than 20 years. I studied at the Conservatory of Music in France. In San Francisco, I studied and played with many great jazz musicians and teachers. I have also studied theory/ composition, electronic music, and voice. I hold an MA in Education.

I've been working with Soraya for over two years. My experience with taking lessons from Soraya has been a wonderful journey of self discovery as well as learning an amazing instrument. My schedule is quite busy and I also have a 10mo old so I don't have a lot of time to practice. However somehow Soraya's teaching technique keeps me moving forward during every class. We meet once a week and I am always excited for my lesson. Sometimes it has been really challenging to learn new chords and yet she is always patient with me and curates the lessons if she sees I need more time on something. Now I am learning a new song that I picked out and it's been so much fun. I highly recommend Soraya and her knowledge about music theory is an added bonus.

This teacher never showed up to my appointment. Her phone number was disconnected.. so much for buying 10 lessons in advance.

"Stephen is not only a gifted cellist, but also an intuitive and devoted teacher. I've been working with him online for several years now, and my playing has benefitted significantly from his technical expertise and understanding of historical contexts. Few teachers are as ready and willing to explore repertoire as eclectic as I have with Stephen, whose insight extends from the ancient to the contemporary. I attribute my success on NYSSMA/All-State to his wise musical counsel!"

"Anna is adept at teaching adults. My wife and I are in our late twenties with no music background at all, and she has done a great job at both introducing the theory behind the music and keeping the lessons simple enough to progress and enjoy. It is an even greater testament to her skill that she is able to teach in this way in a completely online format. Anna knows how to get the most out of her students and is extremely passionate about helping them improve, even contacting them outside of lesson time to check on their progress. We would recommend Anna to anyone!"

He can take you where you want to go musically if you have the dedication. My creative potential has expanded beyond what I thought was possible. I am beginning to have a real experience of myself as a musician and the unfolding of my own music through the insight of his teachings. I definitely recommend learning from him!"
