Nick had a style of teaching that engages and excites my children about learning music. He listens to what they’re interested in and leans in, teaching them songs they’re excited to practice. He’s also very kind and patient, allowing them a safe space to make mistakes and try again.

I wanted to thank you for all the work that you, your colleagues and your family put into making this (Note-worthypalooza)such a memorable event. It's amazing to have pulled off something like this during the pandemic and we are very grateful. Since we have joined the studio a year and half ago I have watched with much respect and admiration how you are and your studio are so much more than just music lessons - so many opportunities for recitals, bands, causes etc. We are glad to be part of the Note-worthy community.
With gratitude, Divya from Sudbury
I'm surprised how well the technology worked--not just from a logistical point of view, but for delivering a very constructive lesson. I didn't have doubts about your ability to teach, but I thought perhaps on our end it wouldn't feel "real." But it certainly did! I found that my son was more focused than he sometimes is. But I don't know if that was because the lesson was online, or it was just one of his better days in terms of paying attention.

My son has really enjoyed his piano lessons with Bryce. Bryce does a great job engaging with his students and encouraging them to push out of their comfort zone. He has also made it fun and motivating by introducing different genres of music from Start Wars, to Holiday Music, to Bach. It has also been good for my son to have a male teacher; he really looks up to him and wants to do better!

My daughter is thoroughly enjoying flute lessons with Sho. She is so proud of herself for the progress she's made so far, thanks to Sho for helping her with initial challenges in making a good sound and reaching the more difficult notes. Sho is a very enthusiastic instructor and is very sensitive to the way in which his students learn. He is always trying to think of new and creative ways in which to convey musical concepts and technique. Claire always looks forward to the next lesson with Sho!

My son has been taking guitar lessons for over a year now with Zayde Buti and it has been a wonderful experience. My son has always been fond of creating his own songs from a very young age and Zayde is fostering that love. Zayde encourages him to create his own songs while also teaching him the proper mechanics of playing the guitar. They have explored other music that my son loves and he has taught him how to play his favorite songs. My son always looks forward to his time with Zayde as he is warm and supportive and also an excellent teacher. We are so grateful to have him teaching our son!

Amy is the perfect teacher for us--8-year-old and 40-year-old first time piano students. She understands that children and adults learn differently and switches easily between teaching styles and techniques for each of us. She gently helps us work on "problem areas" (keep those wrists up!) and inspires us to improve our skills and perhaps most importantly, love music. Amy is flexible, attentive and encouraging. We love Amy!
Liz from Framingham
Lessons are going great...Sarah's awesome. EB is super appreciative of the expert help and they seem to really connect with one another! Sarah also goes above and beyond, recommending music, providing feedback, etc.
Kris from Lexington
I wanted to share with you. How amazing Kun was with Saleem last week.
When she arrived Saleem was tired and didn't want to do anything.
She must have magical powers. Because at the end of the lesson Saleem was happy, motivated and was practicing all week on his own.
Thank you both,
- Nadine from Lexington

Great teachers who come straight to your home and/or online if you choose. Lessons are available for almost ALL instruments.
Tara from Concord
Yusuke has been a wonderful guitar teacher for my teen daughter. His clear expertise, patience, and friendly manner make him a perfect match. He listens to her preferences and works with her to play songs that fit her style. Although she has only been playing for a few months, my daughter looks forward to her lessons, enjoys practicing, and is making great progress. We highly recommend Yusuke to anyone looking for a first guitar teacher!
Jessica from Sudbury
Lessons are going really well. And (our son) had a great time performing at the Housing Authority. He's already signed up for October! I also wanted to thank you for supporting us all as we transitioned to lessons with Connor. He and (our son) really seem to be hitting it off, and I appreciate the way Connor celebrates (our son's) interest in composing. (Our son) has made wonderful progress playing with both hands and understanding rhythm.

Renee is incredibly knowledgeable about both piano instruction and teaching more broadly. Renee understands what is developmentally appropriate and is preparing my daughter for more advanced skills when she will be ready by having a systematic approach from the beginning. She knows how to motivate and focus young children and has made piano lessons productive and fun for my daughter. Renee has routines that make the lesson flow from start to finish and my daughter knows exactly what to expect each week. She also has expectations that my daughter practice and be a responsible student which I appreciate.
Stephanie from Sudbury
Our 14-year-old son started taking trumpet lessons from Cassie a little over six months ago. His improvement was immediate, and he has really enjoyed the lessons. Cassie covers a tremendous amount of ground in each lesson and has worked effectively with our son on musicality and phrasing, dynamic contrast, rhythm/counting, articulation, tone, breath support, intonation - pretty much everything. She also regularly alerts our son to opportunities to grow as a trumpet player outside of school and lessons. She's enthusiastic, direct, efficient, and encouraging. She's been great.
Jeff from Cambridge
We have been really happy with Noteworthy Experiences of Sudbury. They have sent both piano and viola teachers to our home, and both have been excellent. Renee Bordner, the owner, is a pleasure to work with, and very good at matching personalities to attain the best possible experience.
Sarah from Sudbury
We love Sho. He got a few duets to have fun and our son insisted I come and watch. Our son even downloaded music for Pirates of the Caribbean after last class and practiced on his own so he could surprise Sho today. Sho keeps things fun and challenging and tweaks class in real time to encourage our son’s latest interests. We are so lucky to have him!
Divya from Sudbury
We are so pleased with Carly. Not only is she super talented and experienced, she is an effective communicator. I was so impressed with how quickly Sophie was able to master simple songs on the clarinet just a few weeks after first picking up the instrument and only after a couple lessons with Carly. We look forward to continued musical progress with Carly!
Christine from Sudbury
Gabrielle loves the piano! The other day she was on Facetime with her grandparents and played from memory a bunch, literally a bunch of recognizable songs!
I cannot express how happy, proud, and overwhelmed I felt!!! I may have cried. It's not just about the instrument or the task, it's really about creating music, creating comfort and happiness for oneself through an acquired skill and/or one's talent. I couldn't be happier with her progress. Allison is fantastic! Thank you for making this available to Gabrielle!
Nadia from Natick
I can’t thank you enough for the thoughtful introduction to Justin. In 4 weeks he has changed everything about how I approach my playing.
