Get ready for a truly rich and rewarding experience. Maria studied at the Moscow Conservatory with Viktor Merzhanov. She is a 4th-generation pupil of Franz Liszt and 6th-generation of Beethoven. She was one of the fortunate few (Garrick Ohlsson among them) to study with Roberto Eyzaguirre, who was a student and friend of Claudio Arrau, one of the 20th-century's greatest pianists. Arrau studied with Martin Krause, who was one of Franz Liszt's final pupils. Liszt was taught by Carl Czerny. And Beethoven was Czerny's teacher. Through this great lineage, learn an incredible technique that will enable you to play the music of your dreams!

I am gaining a lot from my lessons with Maria. She is helping me to play more musically, to really listen and feel the music. She is also helping me to learn technically how to achieve the musical expression I desire.
Evan
I have enjoyed my lessons from Maria immensely. After just a few lessons I have noticed significant improvements in my overall technique and comfort while playing. Her feedback during lessons has been amazing, not just shallow compliments but solid criticism that most teachers would avoid.
Irwin ..
Maria is the best all-around music teacher I've ever head. She combines deep musicality, technical precision, rigor, and warmth. In just a handful of lessons, she's helped me find a level of ease and expression that I've never experienced with any other teacher.

Jonathan is very very patient and has all the skills to train everyone. I will recommend to everyone who needs to know, study and enjoy the excitement in playing piano, guitar and singing .
Daniel
He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

Want to learn bluegrass, old-time, western swing, country or Irish fiddling? With 18 years playing fiddle and 10 years teaching, I have the experience to help a beginner gain basic skills or an advanced student analyze bowing patterns, moving double stops, backup and improvisational skills and ideas and more. From the student who is picking up the fiddle for the first time to the fiddler who’s been playing their whole life, I hope to inspire a love for traditional fiddle music and culture.

About Cody

I was first inspired to play the fiddle by my grandfather, Tom Smith. Many of my cousins started learning traditional instruments around the same time and we had a lot of fun jamming at family gatherings and at music festivals in our home state of Indiana. In 2015 I was proud to carry the family tra

Really great at getting into the kind of help I need to learn to jam with other bluegrass musicians
Matt
I was basically a beginner approximately 6-7 months ago. I’ve been taking lessons online with Cody every week this whole time. I honestly can’t believe how far we’ve progressed. Cody is a real professional with an immense amount of talent! 100% highly recommend!
Chad C.
Growing up and taking music classes I have always struggled with grasping the concept of music and instruments. Currently a college student with a busy schedule, Cody has helped me accomplish a lot with the time I have been taking lessons with him. Coming from never being able to grasp music to starting to play some songs and understanding theory more, progress has really shown. Learning from Cody will give you a fun, patient, and an exciting environment that will keep you wanting to learn more. Cody is extremely talented, very nice, and makes music easy! I would suggest if anyone would want to learn from the best, learn from Cody!

With 6 years of teaching experience and 13 years of playing experience across a variety of genres, I offer students individually-tailored electric or acoustic guitar lessons for players of any experience level. I'm happy to work with students to improve in the areas most important to them, whether that is simple lessons on chord-shapes, scales, and strumming, mastering advanced playing techniques, or learning to play their favorite songs.

Additionally, I have extensive experience doing live and DI recordings, and would be happy to offer any students lessons on the best ways to record your playing or navigate recording software.

About Cody

I fell in love with the guitar when I was 10, and have stayed in love ever since. I'm a self-taught musician who grew up playing mostly blues music and my favorite rock songs, and have played with punk bands, post-rock bands, cover groups, and accompanied vocalists.

Much of the technique involved in Gospel Singing is the same as traditional opera or jazz voice. Belting is a common technique with Gospel Singing and ear training or reading music is also a part of the whole package. I teach students to project as well as sing in a manner that clarifies the emotion of devotion and reverence. Gospel Singing is a real joy and a big part of my practice.

Maria B.
All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

"Kathryn is an amazing teacher! I've been working with her for nearly a year now. At first I was hesitant doing classes online, but I don't regret taking the leap. I've definitely improved my acting skills in the months we've been working together; she gives great feedback and really cares about her students, not ONLY in the way of their acting skills. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to get into acting. I started out knowing nothing and I can say 100% that what I know now is largely in part of Kathryn!"
