"The teacher has a calm and encouraging style that really allows our daughter to enjoy learning the fundamentals." – R.D.
"Thank you again for all of your hard work in making Sunday’s performance possible. Your dedication, imaginative choreography and fun (and reasonable!) costume choices are really appreciated. Totally apart from the dance skills they are acquiring, the performance experience is invaluable. Your class has been so good for [our child]." J.H.
"This class contains a structured curriculum, yet is well designed and taught in an age appropriate fashion. Our daughter,….., showed obvious improvement in her flexibility and endurance. They not only teach with clear instruction and patience, but also enforce gracefulness and overall beauty of dance through nice music accompaniment and small pieces. In combination with the group music lessons …… (takes from the same school), we feel our daughter is getting an excellent overall education which will bring her quality and enjoyment in her future life." – Y.W.
“[My son] has had... his teacher since that very first group class for toddlers. Soooo patient and so caring. She is really good with children and makes you want to come to class every week. In the entire 3.5 yrs that I have seen her, never has she lost her cool or made any child uncomfortable or feel like they are not doing well. She takes her time to answer the questions and takes the time to explain the notes or the rhythms if she sees a child is struggling. I like the school's curriculum. I think it's been working great for [my son].” – S.M.
"Thank you so much to the Academy for giving the best music education to Jeffrey."
"My son has been studying piano at the Academy of Fine Arts for a few years now and I am very happy with his experience there. From my perspective, the most amazing things that are happening are: the fact that he tremendously enjoys playing piano, performing and having lessons with his very talented teacher, while at the same time progressing technically and playing with emotions/accents that make music beautiful. As evident at the recitals, there are a lot of talented, hard-working students here." – S.L.
"Thank you so much to The Academy of Fine Arts for having the best music teachers on board to nourish our kids and let them shine." – S.S.
PRIVATE MUSIC LESSONS
"It was a great guitar lesson! I got great tips on improving my technique in some areas that I’ve been struggling with and then we got into some fun stuff with blues progressions. I love the combination of learning the 'how' and 'why' (the theory behind the 'how'). Thanks!" – B.R.
.her voice has grown exponentially since she started that work over 2 years ago. What an amazing teacher and we are so grateful to have found her." – D.B.
