  • Larisa Calero

    DJ is absolutely fantastic! He is teaching my 8 and 12 year old boys piano and guitar. He is a phenomenal musician and got my kids super excited about music in general and practicing in particular. Amazing! He is young, chill and knowlegeable. Always on time, always great attitude. Fell lucky to have found DJ. Highly recommend :)

    DJ is an excellent teacher. My daughter never played piano before and has been taking lessons from DJ weekly 3 months. He’s very friendly and explains things so well that she enjoys practicing and looks forward to her lessons and I’m impressed with how well she is playing.
