Mrs. Briggs has taught me so much in only 3 years of being her student. She made me like music more and more, and I started playing songs far beyond my age level. She taught me theory that helped me so much in my music, and her positive attitude made me want to come every class and learn a new song! – Ben (12 years old) Julie is the nicest piano teacher, truly dedicated to children and their improvement. Our son Ben took lessons with her for three years and got quite good. When Ben wanted to change books and type of songs, Julie was perfectly willing to do so. Julie gently prodded Ben into consistent practicing and he certainly benefitted. Julie’s annual recitals, in which all the kids played a song, were wonderful events. We followed Julie when she moved locally, one town away, even though it doubled our drive. We are sad to see her move across the country and wish her the best in her new adventure. Arizona piano students, you are lucky to have her. -Ben’s family
I love everything about this place. My 7 year old has been taking lessons here since he was a year old in their mommy and me Kinder Music classes. He has taken piano and now is taking drums. Every teacher he has had is amazing. You can tell everyone there loves kids and loves what they do. He's been to their summer music camps every year and it's the one camp I feel 100% comfortable with and that I'm getting my money's worth. The recitals are a wonderful opportunity for the kids and are run so smoothly. I would recommend (and have!) this business to anyone I hear is looking for music lessons.
Our son took piano lessons from Mrs and Mr Briggs for 4 years and he made a great progress during this time. Their teaching style makes kids to love music and enjoy the instrument which is a hard task for most kids these days. Our son really loved annual recitals and every spring he spent big deal of time preparing for it. Mrs. Briggs encourage kids to play quite challenging pieces which makes kids appreciate music even more. Great teachers with a great approach to teach music for kids.
We highly recommend MusicMakers!! We didn't know where to turn when we discovered our little guy had some serious musical talent. The staff and instructors are hands down the most patient and wonderful we have yet to encounter. They have been extremely flexible and accommodating. Our little 5 year old drummer has quickly become attached and fond of his instructor and the staff. Thank you MusicMakers for helping guide us when we had no idea where to turn with a musical kiddo!
Mrs. Briggs has taught me piano for eight years now. She has really helped me become an independent and skilled piano player whose learned to appreciate the beauty of playing. She has also helped me to overcome playing challenging pieces. Her patience and kindness towards my progress have always kept me motivated.
I'm an adult student taking lessons for the past 15 months. She is my first teacher and very patient but insistent to guide me through the past. I can now play an amazing music, Chopin Waltz in B minor, in this short time. You will be happy to take lessons from her.
My kids learned piano from Mr.Briggs for 3 years. Both of them just loved it. He is very patient and fun-loving. The kids enjoyed going to the class. It was a great experience.
These guys are amazing, and they use great technology to get things done. I never thought it would be possible to have a great guitar lesson through Skype. It was really cool.
My son learned piano with Ms Briggs for 3 years. He loves piano more and more. He loves Ms Briggs' teaching method very much. She is a very accomplished teacher.
Friendly family owned business. The staff is friendly and the owners are down to earth. The kids feel happy to be at the school!
