Great first lesson.
Raahil J.
He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

Ben is a wonderful teacher! He is very dedicated and patient. My kids play piano greatly improved since they started with Ben.
Lynn
Ben is great if you want your child to love piano. He is a fun teacher and was very patient with my son, who was a bit turned off from music due to prior experiences. He actually wrote songs for my son to play since he needed more time at the beginner level. He was great when my son was nervous at recitals and festivals and had strategies to help him deal with nerves.
Ryan /.
Not good for beginners. Ben is knowledgeable, however.

Carla's teaching technique was perfect for me. I have played the guitar for longer than I care to admit and even I was tired of hearing my same old stuff. She incrementally moved me forward line by line, measure by measure to where I now have several fingerpicking style numbers in my portfolio.

Playing for my own enjoyment is now enjoyable once again.

My lessons were online and very effective - when I got stuck, Carla would send me a sample audio clip of her playing the difficult part which was a godsend for me in how I learn new musical things.

I highly recommend Carla and her Carlalology method of guitar teaching. You won't be disappointed.

Great teacher and she teaches many different styles of playing.

i originally selected carla as my instructor based on her skills, resume, other students comments etc. listed on the website. shortly after my lessons began i realized she was a vital resource for guidance, knowledge and material all of which would enable me to grow as a musician. she is talented, smart, inspirational, funny and more, what else could you ask for?!!!!

About Lisa

My student said it best, "I've had the privilege of having Lisa as my voice instructor. In a matter of a few lessons, she began to help me smooth out my vocal breaks and extend my range. Lisa provides great exercises and technique that strengthen and improve your singing. She is someone you can tru

It was wonderful for lisa to have the patience to help me believe that I could improve my vocals.. we did some ear training to help me get more in tune with the music!
Lisa has lots of enthusiasm and is excited with singing and helping others improving their singing abilities.
We did some group classes too, which were fun and those really engaging and motivating for the whole group.
Sergio
Lisa worked with my 10- and 6-year-old boys. They absolutely loved the lessons. We could hear them playing and laughing the whole time. She's really talented at teaching children.

I also took a lesson with her myself and it was everything I hoped for and more. I like technical details when learning and Lisa adapted the lesson to that preference very nicely.

Bottom line: Lisa is an amazing instructor and you or your children will learn a lot from her.
Yustina
Several lessons with Lisa helped me to feel comfortable singing in my upper register. I was a very low alto, now, in my good days, I can belt Adele's notes (I didn't say I sound like Adele, though)

Great personality and knowledge of music, really makes the lessons very personalized, fun and interesting. Definitely a good choice!!
vishal
Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

"In the course of a few lessons with Gfire, I (with coaching) wrote a song that I felt pretty good about. I've written a few songs before and had learned the basics, but I enjoyed learning her method (which, in a phrase, would have to be "keep going") and I plan to use it to see if it'll help with my productivity. Gfire was always very upbeat and positive without being phony, encouraging without being demanding, so the lessons were always enjoyable. I would recommend her."

Carlos is very knowledgeable about songwriting and just music in general. He takes his time to always listen to my ideas and then helps me organize my melodies and chords.
