Testimonials

"Mr. Eleazar has been my teacher for about 8 years now. Each year I can not believe how much he has helped me improve and greaten my love for music. He always starts off class with a big and warm "Hello!!" and that sets the mood for the whole class. I have moved to different instruments three times, piano to guitar to singing, and each time that I mention I want to switch, he is extremely supportive and has vast knowledge on each of this instruments. He has also taught my brother piano and saxophone, and my brother still continues to play in college because of the interest Mr. Eleazar has instilled in him."  ~ Isha Savant
