Connor M. says, "Steve has played a tremendous role in the progress I've made as a guitar player. Lessons with him are enjoyable, rewarding, and low stress. He is a good listener; he pays attention to my playing and my questions, and provides valuable feedback. The work he gives me between lessons is always challenging, but reasonable, keeping me motivated and keeping the momentum going on improving my technique and musicality. He plays beautifully and seems to genuinely enjoy discussing all things related to music and the guitar." Read more

Lily I. says, "My 8 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Senem for over a year. She looks forward to her lessons every week! Prior to choosing Senem we tried out multiple other teachers but Senem had a great balance of structure while still keeping my young daughter engaged. Having taken lessons myself for over 10 years I'm surprised at how well my daughter plays already! It just really shows how big of a difference a teacher can make. We're so glad we found Senem!"

Angelese P. says, "Dr. Park's vast wisdom and knowledge on cello and orchestral cello repertoire is an invaluable asset in his teaching. Not only is he an amazing technical teacher, Dr. Park's encyclopedic knowledge of music is not only impressive but is very rare to see in a young cello instructor. It is inspiring to say the least! He also shows that he cares about you outside the studio and is very personable and friendly. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with Yeil when I was at ASU. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter what age or level you are in your cello-learning journey!" Read more

Willie F. says, "My daughter has been going to A Musician Is..... for 6 years now. Many hobbies have come and gone but not her desire to play the violin and I believe that has alot to do with the teachers here. I've sat in on many classes and it's amazing to see the progress my daughter & son have made, the knowledge they have gained learning to play , the discipline they have learned thru practice and being a musician and how to apply that to everyday life. Nikki's music knowledge and the tidbits she throws your way makes each class entertaining. My daughter & son (piano for 1 yr now) look forward to all the recitals and they gets a kick out of people of all ages dressed up nervous and excited to perform. Love the group classes and group recitals also. It’s a family atmosphere and after all this time it’s been great to see everyone grow and improve. One of the best decisions I’ve made. Getting my kids into lessons and having music playing in my house every night!!" Read more

Shelley S. says, "Our son has studied with Dr. Esther Witherell since Fall 2022. In that time, his interest in and commitment to violin have both grown substantially, which we think is at least in part due to her instruction. He has improved in his intonation, tone, posture, and general playing confidence. He has internalized the skills they have been working on together, especially in shifting, articulation, and bow technique. The studio's automated system of payment makes logistics easy, and Esther is always accommodating when it comes to schedule changes." Read more

I take a uniquely personal approach to every one of my clients. I make sure to know something about each of my students, and assess, as I go along, what I think would work best for them. I understand the importance of getting to know individual learning styles. How individuals learn is, essentially, the bridge between what is being relayed and what is being received. I enjoy getting to know a variety of people who share my interests. I enjoy relaying my passion for music and playing the piano....

Senem is very kind, patient & most importantly knows how to engage with her students. She makes learning fun for my 10 year old son (who can be challenging at times.) Apart from her ability to truly understand what a student needs, she is extremely skilled & talented in piano. We are so happy to have found her & look forward to many years learning from her! :)

Dr. Park is not only an incredible cellist but the best cello teacher you could hope for. He guides you to improve technically and musically, asking questions along the way so that his students have their own realizations and each form their own musical identity. His Socratic approach meant that I always left my lessons feeling inspired and even more fascinated about music than before.

My daughter has been working with Miss Nicole over 2 years and she loves come to her and learn some new violin skills . It is never too late to start, but it is difficult to continue to practice it. Thank you so much for Miss Nicole’s patience .

Esther is a wonderfully talented musician and an exceptional instructor! As an adult learner and novice violin player, I enjoy that Esther challenges me during lessons. She encourages precision with technical skills but is also dynamic in her approach to teaching. She has come up with creative ways to help me improve my rhythm and it’s working! I leave every lesson feeling encouraged, inspired and motivated.
