I have been teaching piano and flute for 16 years and am a classically trained musician. I incorporate fun activities for my younger students to stay engaged and my older students learn the skills to excel for the instrument while relaxing after a long day of work or family responsibilities. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

About Sarah

I am so excited for the opportunity to teach music to those interested in learning and growing in their musical knowledge! I teach piano, flute and I also have multiple years experience with the Piccolo, Alto, and Bass Flutes. I have been playing the piano for 22 years and the flute for 20 years.

My daughter is very happy with Sarah! Would highly recommend her.
Jon
Sarah is an excellent teacher! I started taking lessons with her a few years ago and she was very gracious with me as I struggled learning. She's helped me so much. I've come a long way from struggling with Hot Cross Buns to playing full chord progressions and being able to hear songs and play chords that correspond with the music.

Not only does she do a great job of teaching the technical basics, she also includes a great amount of music theory in the process which is super helpful!
Dorothy W.
First class was a success! Sara was polite, professional, very knowledgable and friendly. Her studio is beautiful! I look forward to my next lesson.

Michael works with a wide variety of students from ages 5 and older. Michael specializes in beginner and intermediate students.

At the first lesson, the student can expect a wide variety of questions to give Michael a feel of their interests, desires and goals with playing drums. Students will be asked what kind of music they want to play and encouraged to always guide Michael to learning what they like.

Students can expect to learn rudiments, proper technique, reading rhythms and learning the songs they like.

Patient and flexible, moves at a pace that challenges you but doesnt push too hard which is a delicate balance!

Thank you!

Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

Your Tai Chi Journey begins with an understanding of your needs. There is no mystery or mysterious movements to Tai Chi Chuan. The lessons are science-based so you will enjoy learning this wonderful art which has changed my life and I'm sure it will change yours too. Once we've set some goals we'll begin with introductory training. Experienced or maybe not so much we will work together to help you reach your goals.

About Ron

To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines. American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Cer

I've worked with Ron on the International Medical Tai Chi and Qigong Association, and I must say that he is absolutely terrific! His passion for the art is phenomenal, and his thinking process is very insightful. He is a fabulous Tai Chi teacher and I would highly recommend him.
SOH
Over the years I have had a number of instructors and Master Ron is by far the best. His knowledge of Tai Chi and martial aspects of the form is outstanding and I am proud to be his student. The technique applied when he is teaching is relaxed, strengthens the mind and body when learning the traditional forms of Tai Chi Chuan. The theory behind the forms is an aspect of Tai Chi I was not familiar with and over the past few months I have learnt more about the connection between the body, the mind and the forms than I have in the number of years I have trained. If you are looking for an instructor who is knowledgeable, approachable and passionate I would strongly recommend Master Ron.
Jenny F
I have been having private lessons with Ron for 18 months or so now and I cannot recommend Ron enough. He is an excellent Master Instructor, with an immense amount of knowledge and experience. The teaching environment is relaxed and friendly and yet hard working; building strength and agility in both body and mind as well as learning the traditional Tai Chi Chuan forms.

I have been teaching middle school social studies professionally for about a year. However, I have tutored middle school and high school students in Social Studies for about 5 years. I have a bachelor's degree in Broadfield Social Studies and Secondary Education. I have a teacher license and I am certified to teach grades 6-12. My concentrations are in history, political science, and psychology. I believe that every student is unique and must have an educational environment where they can grow physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually. I want to create an atmosphere where students can meet their full potential and provide a safe and caring environment where students can share their thoughts and ideas. I believe that the teacher’s role is to act as a guide, mentor, and leader. Students should be able to have access to hands-on activities and have the opportunity to practice their skills in a safe environment.

About Brent

I graduated from Cardinal Stritch University with a Bachelor's Degree in Secondary Education and Broadfield Social Studies. I am certified to teach grades 6-12.

I am a professional full-time trombonist. At the same time, teaching has always been a big part of who I am - I love teaching. My music career has taken me around the world and back but more than that it has given me a wonderful tool of self-expression, and for that, I am forever grateful. My band performs regularly in Opera houses as well as coffee houses. Other than the trombone I do play the trumpet as well, and I have over 8 years of piano under my belt.

About Reut

Hello there! I am a trombonist and teacher, with many years of experience teaching Hebrew as well as music. As a music teacher I have worked with children starting from private lessons to young children beginning to learn, up to master classes in universities worldwide. I love teaching, and I

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band or full drum set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. My goal is to help students grow with their comfort and confidence. If you are comfortable and confident, then you will have fun. It all works together.

David is an excellent teacher! My son enjoys his personality and is learning so much. He is really growing as a musician after only 3 lessons. David is very flexible and easy to work with. He is easily contacted and promptly responds to any questions we have. Because of his extensive musical experience, David has the skills to teach every genre. We are enjoying his teaching plan on continuing lessons with David for a long time.

Great experience so far. David has been teaching my daughter who is a beginner in Drums, so far so good. He makes sure to send us an email after classes to follow up and assign Homework. Will definitely recommend.

"I have been taking lessons with Dipankar for the last 2 months and it has been a great experience!. Dipankar really is a tremendous teacher, who quickly identifies my weaknesses as a player, which allows me me work towards eliminating those weaknesses.

My weakness is that I have the tendency to rush, or to assume that a move is the correct one, when it's not! Dipankar's system has taught me to stop assuming, to look for further moves and to choose the correct move more often than before.

My Chess rating has gone up and I am a much stronger player today thanks to Dipankar! I strongly recommend him to any Player that wants to improve."
