I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.

Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.

Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

About Shelby

I am laidback. You and I will create an agreement that fits both of us once we start (long-term students) and a set of boundaries to keep up focused on your goals for the session(s). I prefer us to keep the subject of conversation geared towards your learning goals that day, but I wont freak out eve

Lisa made learning German fun! I wanted to focus on words and phrasing needed when traveling to German as I hope to do that someday soon. After going over some basic German words and principles, we started on phrases, with quizzing afterward to help me retain what I had learned. Lisa provided lots of positive feedback and I gained confidence as the lesson proceded. I hope to take additional classes when I firm up plans to actually make the trip and I'll be hoping to take them from Lisa again. Highly recommend!

Lisa was amazing! I needed a refresher on my German before going on a trip, and Lisa was just who I needed to assist me. She is very professional, patient, and adapted our lessons to my specific needs and goals. I would recommend Lisa to anyone seeking German assistance!

I highly endorse Valentina and think she is an excellent tutor especially, for a working adult who is willing to work hard to progress. Thank you for your help."

"I have had only one class with Valentina so far, but even in that amount of time I felt like she knew what she was doing and was the right teacher to help me with my goals. She has experience teaching, and was able to laugh or brush off misunderstandings which made the lesson feel more relaxed.
I learned enough in our first lesson to keep me busy the entire week until our next one! I'm looking forward to our next session."

"The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!"
