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.
Brandon
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 S.
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.

We feel so privileged to have Randy as an instructor for our daughter. Not only extremely proficient in many areas of music, Randy is also very skilled and proficient with his teaching. Our 12-yr- old daughter thanked us for finding Randy, saying that she has learned and progressed so much since he began teaching her. He helped ready her for her audition, and her confidence is growing. I can't recommend Randy highly enough.
Aliyah T.
My daughter Aliyah thought it went great!
Polly C.
My daughter has been taking voice & piano lessons with Randy for about a year now. Within a few months after switching to Randy, the improvement in both her piano playing & in her voice was very noticeable not only to us (her biased parents), but also to her music & performing arts teacher at school and others. Randy is an excellent teacher who knows how to bring the best out of his students. My daughter loves her lessons with Randy !

Very good, I enjoyed class
Kathleen
Bill has been fantastic to work with. He is a wealth of knowledge in the area of voice acting and voice control in general. He has always been well prepared, exceptionally organized and on-time, and very helpful and thoughtful in his feedback and responses. I’m heading into my 4th class and am very glad I chose Bill to work with; I have already seen improvements in both my tone and voice quality, but perhaps most importantly, I’m gaining in confidence too. Looking forward to more classes! :)

My son’s lessons with Sara have been awesome! He’s very shy and reserved but she has made him feel comfortable. I have no idea what she said to him during their first interaction but it made him more confident in his work. My son has mentioned that she’s pleasant to work with. He also wanted me to mention that she challenges him and helps him think. Thank you Sara!

Sara is an excellent teacher!! She is really helping my daughter improve her grammar and writing skills.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."
