"I love your ability to see the importance of creating an opportunity to have children learn to love music. This personalized approach to learning is done in a unique method that illicit the child into classical training through a method that creates pathways to illicit self expression while giving the child the stepping stones to understanding how to not only express but to enjoy the learning. While sitting watching my son have his lesson, he turned his head back to me and mouthed the words.... "Mom this is SO much FUN". Can you imagine, what this moment was like? No ice cream, carnivals or video games, just a genuine moment of a young boy experiencing the thrill of self expression! I highly recommend this school to any one, all ages, that yearns for a musical expression. When work becomes play, when play becomes mastery!" Thank you!
Justin is AMAZING!!! He's professional and FUN with my two boys, ages 10 and 7, in teaching them piano and guitar. My kids are engaged and LOVE to go to their music lessons! They're learning proper hand placement and how to read music, all while giving my kids a "jam session" with him to encourage their LOVE for music. Can't say enough great things about Justin and his approach to teaching music... !
Justin's piano lessons are very helpful. I, a novice piano player was able to play songs just after 2 lessons. Justin is very helpful and is willing to answer any and every question. He goes out of his way to make sure you understand what you are learning and truly cares that you become better. His lessons have given me the confidence that I can become a confident piano player in time.
Justin is amazing!! He's been working with my boys ages 11 and 14 for some time now and they love the way he teaches. He makes every lesson fun and exciting for them. I would recommend him to anyone that's interested in music.

"Sheila is so wonderful. Samantha has taken to the piano because of her. She comes home and actually wants to practice without being told. Sheila has a wonderful way with kids." Suzan T. (La Crescenta)

Hi Marija, Last Saturday night Shelby was at a concert at the Wiltern and was chosen to sing part of a duet on stage with the band that we were there too see. Needless to say it was an epic night for her! I was thinking of you after it happened and wanted to thank you for the part that you have played in her life as a musician. You definitely got her off to a great start and she is growing and evolving. She even has a band that she and her friends put together, which is a real joy to her. Thanks so much, Marija! Blessings!

My experience with Ms. Nico has been, so far, very fun. The way she teaches me is so out-of-the-ordinary. Like, you'd think that a teacher, especially for piano or any instrument, would be strict and say things like, "This is the song you are going to play," end of story, but with Ms. Nico she gives you what you need to know and what you need to learn, and she also lets you have your own choice in music. I would play, like, famous songs, and songs that we both came up with and love in the concerts/recitals. "She knows that I love to perform so she is always encouraging me to do the recitals and suggesting ones to do, and during the shows we always have something special and somewhat of a theme to my performances, such as singing, or costumes, things like that. "Another thing that makes me love how she teaches are the games or contests if you will. It enourages me to try to win and it actually helps me improve; like, one recent game we had was who had the longest practice time over the summer. That made me extend my practice times, and I actually won, which was very exciting! And the prizes are out of this world. Not only are the prizes amazing, but usually they incorporate the personality of the student. "Ms. Nico gets to know the student while she teaches so she knows how to teach them in a more accurate way. And that also affects the choice of songs, and the one she suggests. She is also one of the people helping me to fulfill my dream of going to Juilliard. She is giving me all the tools to succeed. Ms. Nico is an amazing teacher and I couldn't find anyone better.

I courageously went back to playing the piano after thirty long years. This miracle could not have happened but for Nico's immense patience and encouragement. I greatly appreciate her continued support.

"Nico has been my piano teacher for 4 years, and I am only 8! She is a great teacher, she makes jokes and is super funny, but when it comes to music she is serious. She lets you do all kinds of music; you usually get 5/6 songs to practice. You don't just do 1 or 2 songs that you have to practice and memorize. Nico is the best piano teacher you could ever have!"
