TESTIMONIALS

Nathan has managed to capture my daughter's attention and run with it!  He steadily builds her skills week by week - she knows she is making progress which makes her more invested in her lessons.

- Rachel M. 

 

I like taking piano lessons with Nathan because he is a good teacher.  

- Ruthie, age 5 

 

Nathan is patient with me and good at explaining the hard parts.  

- Celia, age 8

“Nathan is a terrific piano teacher, who always makes learning fun. He has improved my sight-reading a lot and has taught me so much about music theory. I always look forward to my lessons with Nathan.”

- Anatole, age 12

 

"Nathan has single-handedly revived my son's interest in the piano and has given him valuable tools for understanding and appreciating all sorts of music, and even for writing music of his own. He is a passionate and patient teacher, whose encouragement and dedication have boosted Anatole’s self-confidence considerably.

- Daniel, father

OLIVER

Oliver is a great pianist and teacher. He is friendly, easy to work with, and thoughtful with his instruction. As an adult learner who's in this just for fun, I am so surprised with how much I've learned in a few months. He allows me to work at my own pace while still teaching me new complex concepts every lesson; I am excited to practice piano again!

- Jess, adult student

JOEL

“Joel is a gem - we feel so lucky to have found him! He has been an invaluable part of our son's musical education, not only teaching him piano, but music theory as well. His rapport with kids is unmatched, and his balance of lighthearted fun with high expectations is perfect. He truly brings out the best in our son.

–Sohini, mom

“Joel is the best music teacher I have ever had. He has taught me so many things about music, and I wouldn't be as good at piano - or music in general, for that matter - if I didn't have him as a teacher.”

–Arhan, age 10

NAAMA

“Naama is kind and nice. She makes me work hard but all the hard work pays off because in the end I can do each song perfectly.”

–Fiona, age 7

“Naama is great, she keeps things challenging yet fun for kids. I love how she blends music theory, reading music, and fun exercises into each class. I’m thrilled with how much progress my 7 year old has made in the last 2 years.”

–Lisa, mom

“Naama has remarkable patience with my easily distracted and often temperamental 8-year-old. She helps him work through his frustrations and adds fun to each lesson even when he is less than cooperative.”

–Olivia, mom

“Naama is so, so, so, so kind.”

–Ryan, age 8

MARK

"Mark's relaxed, open teaching style has been great for my daughter. He makes learning the piano fun and thinks of creative ways to help her learn new songs and understand the fundamentals of music theory. It's also a bonus that Mark is a professional jazz musician who plays multiple instruments, as he can teach her elements of jazz that she otherwise wouldn't get from a traditional piano teacher.”

–Jenny, mom

"Mark is a great teacher. He has taught me some new ways of looking at music and has taught me many new things I never knew before. He is also very calm and understanding. I am very happy he is my teacher.”

–Ella, age 12

“Mark makes piano lessons fun!”

–Violet, age 9

"I've been consistently impressed with Mark's teaching. He's been able to engage my child, keep lessons fun and interesting, and help her to continue to improve by always being encouraging without any pressure. I also appreciate how he introduces musical theory, so I feel she's getting a more complete musical education. Her playing has improved dramatically with him, and she also enjoys playing more and more.”

–Joanna, mom

HELENA

“We have been so impressed with Helena and her work with our daughter. I could hear the improvement in skill within just a few lessons, and I'm sure that's because Helena is both a great teacher and a gifted artist.”

–Chris, dad

TONY

Tony has been an absolute gem. His skills at guitar and piano are outmatched only by his warm, welcoming charisma and patient teaching style. We have been thrilled by the progress our 9-year-old daughter has made since starting lessons with him. If you're looking to radically improve your musicianship or have a special someone in need of lessons, look no further.

–Paul, dad

 

Getting lessons with Tony has been great. I love it. He's very nice, and if you make a mistake, he doesn't get angry. He just helps you understand the mistake. It's been really fun. I've had a great time taking piano lessons with him.

–Harley, age 9

Will has been learning how to play guitar with Tony for over a year now and since the beginning, Will has looked forward to every lesson. Tony has a positive and encouraging teaching style.  He has taken the time to find out what kind of music Will is interested in learning and then tailored the teaching to his interests. 

- Kathleen, mother

 

Tony has taught me so much and made me love to play guitar.  He is very open about what I want to learn and also teaches me useful skills that make him amazing at playing guitar. 

- Will, age 9

Tony makes piano lessons fun. 

- Quinn, age 12 

 

Tony meets your kid where they're at. His goal is to help your child love music and that's what drives him. He's patient, supportive and flexible, and my 12 year old son who has been reluctant to continue with piano has responded really positively to lessons with Tony. 

- Jenni, mother
