About Karen

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

I recommend Hayden to all piano learners. Even though I was a beginner, his lessons helped me improve a lot. Now I can play Chopin's Nocturnes. He is patient, kind and funny. And of course he has great technique and musical sensibility. I look forward to his lessons every time. It will definitely help you improve.先生ありがとう!

Private Classical Piano Teacher

Having studied piano performance at Westminster Choir College after teaching myself as a teenager, and having taught piano for over a decade has prepared me to teach any beginner and intermediate piano student, no matter her background. My students learn how to read music well, while playing with great style and proper technique.
In my home studio, we'll use a pro-level Yamaha keyboard with weighted keys.

About Heather M.

More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio and

Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.
Kevin C.
Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!
Tejas A.
My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

As soon as I realized that my daughter (now 12) had a “voice”, I searched for an instructor. My first choice was a fail. The woman didn’t listen to her and the lessons became boring and robotic. My daughter was very disappointed. We decided to move on. Then we found Elise. My daughter has THRIVED since! It has been almost three years now (both in person and online), and the progress has been nothing short of remarkable. Elise is engaging, energetic, attentive, fun and an exceptionally talented, patient instructor, who genuinely listens to my kid beyond what I could have ever expected. Three months ago she started to teach my son (8) piano. He adores her! Elise has a very unique quality that I find beyond incredible. As an instructor, she finds a way to CONNECT with her students! I recommend her entirely.
Linda C.
Elise is an amazing voice and piano teacher. I have taken lessons with her on both instruments and have learned so much! She is an incredible technician and is an overall fun and caring teacher. You are in good hands with this teacher!
Adele
Elise was a huge help teaching musical theatre techniques to our musical students. She helped with the actual singing as well as facial expression and movement. This was a huge help to our performers!

I decided to take up cello at age 57 as a new instrument. Melissa did a great job teaching proper technique and method and was really aware of my personal goals for what I wanted to achieve. She has a great gentle and encouraging demeanor. I would highly recommend Melissa.

"As a teacher of music (violin, voice, and choral) and a Classical singer, and colleague of Brent, I think the most important aspect of teaching is to take a personal approach with each student to see what "fits." Every student learns differently, and Brent recognizes that. He puts a tremendous amount of thought and creativity into the development of his students. Too many teachers today have a "cookie cutter" approach to teaching, and in my own experience, this turns students away from working on music later in their lives. Brent has the opposite approach, he is committed to developing the skills and love for Classical music simultaneously in the student, which has a more long-lasting affect on their schoolwork, concentration, character, and social life."
