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.

Two months ago, my daughter started piano lessons with Dan Pappas. On the first day, Dan arrived at our house and immediately my daughter felt comfortable working with Dan. My daughter is a rambunctious six-year old. Since the lessons are at home, my daughter can become easily distracted by her surroundings. Dan is very patient. He finds a proper balance of learning and having fun. Now that we are doing lessons remotely, we are doing two shorter meetings a week. This has helped increase my daughter’s engagement. Overall, the lesson quality remains great. As a family, we appreciate Dan’s flexibility. We have had to move lessons around to accommodate our schedules. Dan has always been very flexible. Despite the chaos (both from a rambunctious six-year old and current life changes), my daughter has progressed rapidly and really enjoys playing the piano.
Finally, I asked my daughter why she likes Dan. She said that Dan is nice and is patient. He lets me learn at my own pace.

Monica has opened Sam’s eyes and heart to the piano. She is so sweet and has formed a great bond with him. We never expected his skills to flourish amidst a pandemic using FaceTime, but she has gone above and beyond. We are so pleased with his progress and how much he enjoys playing. He has learned theory, developed his ear, and enjoys learning new songs on the piano. More than that he looks forward to his lessons every week! We can’t recommend her more! Monica is amazing.
Keith from Hudson
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.
Jeanette from Framingham
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!

Tim Flores is working with our 9-year-old son & 11-year-old daughter. He jumped right in as a substitute instructor in a seamless way; quickly understanding & responding to their learning styles, personalities, levels, engaging them, challenging them & quickly guiding their growth. He has a kind, positive vibe as he provides a fun, focused lesson. He often adds an extra little element to keep them engaged & learning such as duets, learning how to give (& receive) constructive feedback from each other, listening activities about classical composers. He teaches them to appreciate where they are & get excited about what is next. He is super organized & follows up each lesson with a lesson plan that is extremely helpful for the my kids (& parents too) to navigate exactly what to work on & how to go about it. Tim clearly cares about his students and helping them both progress and find the joy of music! We are so appreciative that he is working with our children!
Laurie from Wellesley
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!
Christine from Sudbury
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
Seba is a wonderful teacher for my son and a super nice guy. He finds Seba engaging , very comfortable to be with and enjoys the lessons very much. My son feels he teaches him more than notes, rhythm, fundamentals and so much more. He looks forward to his weekly lessons and is very impressed with Seba as he is super talented!
Linda from Concord
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
Hi, just wanted to thank Kira for the phenomenal connection and instruction with both Warren and Clara (who are so unique and different and yet Kira finds a way to connect with each of them in such a way that inspires their musical energy and desire to learn)!
Nick from Sudbury
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.
Mike from Sudbury
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
I can’t express enough appreciation for Tara Chambers teaching our 3 boys piano the past 2 years. The boys could only play baby songs before they started lessons with Tara, who challenged them with playing classical. The boys improved at a speed that we could never imagine. Since then, the boys are confident enough to participate in recitals and competitions. We are amazed by Tara's ability to see the potentials of her students. Tara is patient, encouraging, and loving. She listens to the boys’ preferences and always finds pieces that they enjoy learning. Tara makes learning piano a joyful experience for them. During the pandemic, Tara adapted to teaching remotely, and the boys were able to continue lessons. We love working with Tara and look forward to unlocking more potentials.
Tanya from Sudbury
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
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!
Lisa 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
Great teachers who come straight to your home and/or online if you choose. Lessons are available for almost ALL instruments.
Tara from Concord
This organization is a thriving music education business that offers high quality in home lessons and other community building events!
Kristine K. Adult Student from Concord
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
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
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
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
We absolutely adore Jessica. The kids are behind enthralled with and motivated by her!!!!
