Ivan is an energetic, patient teacher to my boys. He took 1 reluctant student and helped him enjoy the piano and look forward to his lessons.

Ivan is the best, he really worked with my daughter and she enjoys her lessons a lot. She's learned a lot in a short period of time. Ivan is very effective with the online format we chose to use during the pandemic. Couldn't be happier.

Hayden meets weekly with our 13 year old son for trombone lessons. He shows patience as he learns the material and works with him to keep trying until he gets it and gives him actionable items to work on between sessions. Hayden also does a nice job engaging our son by providing music to learn that is interesting to him and even has gone so far as to compose trombone music of songs that are interesting to our kid. He has been an excellent teacher and we plan to continue our weekly lessons with Hayden.
David
I want to once again write a testimonial for Hayden Maple. Had is a gifted musician and instructor. He has worked at my pace, been accomodating during an illness and travel of mine. and he has understood my goals and tailored his teacher towards them. I encourage anyone seeking an instructor to give Hayden a shot.
David
Hayden is pleasant, well-informed and motivating. He is a good teacher and shares his tips on how to improve. I will be signing up for more lessons! I am actually making music with Hayden's help.

I've been teaching private voice and acting coaching for over 5 years and LOVE seeing my students improve! I am a working singer/actor, and writer/musician in NYC, but I love teaching so much that I do it even while I'm working on projects!

A little bit about me:
I graduated from University of Michigan's musical theatre program (one of the top musical theatre programs in the world!) and went straight into playing Ariel in THE LITTLE MERMAID at Chicago Shakespeare theatre, and then directly on to playing the lead in PHANTOM OF THE OPERA on Broadway for several years! I also recently returned from China, where I played Scarlett O'Hara in the musical version of GONE WITH THE WIND!

I've trained in all kinds of different techniques and currently have all different types of students and voices in my studio! I teach all levels and ages, from beginners to professionals, and a wide variety of different of styles (Broadway, opera, pop, ...

Rachel is a talented actress and singer. She is also a great teacher!
I really enjoy our lessons and i am a bit shy when it comes to singing, but she really helps make you feel comfortable. She has many different tools in her kit to help bring your voice out and understand how to use your body. I appreciate her candid approach and that she doesn't butter me up, she gives great constructive feedback that you can work with. Not only the technical aspects, but the artistry of the craft as well.
I definitely feel like i've gained a deeper understanding of how to sing properly and am more confident as a result. Highly recommend her, you wont be disappointed.

Rachel is such a great teacher. She explained everything so clearly and vividly. I have zero background or knowledge in singing but I feel I learned a lot just in the first class! And she is so kind and patient. It's such a good experience to work with her!
My Daughter is very happy with her lessons, great learning experience, but also a lot of fun.

I was very nervous before my first lesson, I was a complete beginner and was about to play in front of someone for the first time. All of my worries went away though during that first lesson and we got to know one another. I never felt any judgment but instead felt inspired to keep practicing and learning. Not once did he get impatient with me even though we were working on extremely beginner songs. He has helped me reach my goal I had started out with and helped me set new ones to start working towards.
Sandra N.
It is such a pleasure to take lessons from Yoon Jae! He is so knowledgable and has a unique perspective. I have played for many years, but now I am seeing music in a new way.

Carolyn is so awesome! I approached lessons as a complete beginner and I'm now starting to find my footing more and more with each lesson. I feel like everything I learn is immediately applicable, too. Carolyn is great about breaking down what works for my voice and helping me find the strength (and courage!) to wield it.

"Can't say enough about Yoon. He is not a mere teacher, but a mentor of sorts. Not only does he know his stuff, but what he teaches can be applied to other areas of life. He goes above and beyond the material. Teaching you not just about music, but how to learn more efficiently and how to build yourself up. Here I was, late to the music game, playing catch-up. In a couple of months, I have made massive improvements to my rhythm and intonation. More than that, Yoon instills a drop more of confidence in me every single lesson and that is invaluable. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about getting right kind of instruction!"

Her consistency in communication and consciousness of student wellbeing was always really reassuring and she was always willing to meet me wherever I was at in a particular skill.

Have been working on some ear training stuff that other instructors maybe would not have taken the time to work with me on! Working on hearing and playing the divided sky by phish right now not an easy piece of music. Also working on more phrasing and country blues licks and theory. I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone👍🎸"
