It’s Like Music

To Our Ears….

My son has been playing the drums at the Music Connection for a few years now and continues to enjoy lessons there because his instructor is so awesome! Peter Cohan is so great with young kids, he is always patient and kind. My son really looks up to him and we are confident that he as well as the other instructors, are great musicians and really know their stuff!

What They Are Saying!  It’s Like Music To Our Ears!

Mark D. Danvers, MA

For about 15 years, I wanted to learn the bass guitar. As I approach retirement, I thought I’d give it a try. As an older student, I was very nervous. My teacher is Randy Leventhal, and he is amazing! After only three months, I can play a handful of classic rock songs, and I have learned a ton about music theory. Not only is Randy extremely knowledgeable about music, but he knows how to teach. He knows how to push his students to the next level at a comfortable pace while providing constant, but not phony, encouragement. To top it off, Randy has an amazing sense of humor that helps make each lesson fun. If you have ever thought about playing the guitar, I hope you are lucky enough to get a teacher like Randy.

My experience at The Music Connection has been fantastic! Randy- guitar instructor was extremely patient, knowledgeable extremely talented and does an amazing job of teaching/ blending both theory and the love of music which catered to my personal preferences of wanting to learn songs. Both Darren and Randy were extremely flexible and willing to work around complex schedules! While clearly music lessons are a business- for these guys it’s a passion! Thanks for the lessons- can’t wait to pick back up again!

I’ve decided to take a few classes at the The Music Connection after doing some initial online search for a good place to learn guitar but without knowing very much about the school or the teachers. Ever since my first class with Peter I knew I made the right choice and didn’t need to look any further! Learning to play a musical instrument as an adult and a complete beginner without any prior musical training could be intimidating but Peter has helped me make this experience really rewarding and exciting. The great thing about Peter is that he combines a rare quality of being an amazing musician and a great teacher at the same time, and you can really learn a lot from him if you are putting your time into practice.

The music connection is amazing.  They are extremely flexible and friendly.  My daughter takes piano and voice lessons with Mara.  Mara is incredibly talented and patient.  She does such a great job teaching the curriculum.  My daughter enjoys learning with her and also has fun.  It’s nice to be part of a school that treats you like family.  Thank you Mara and the Music Connection!

We love this place! My 13 year old stepson and I both took voice lessons at the Music Connection. I’m sure it’s not easy to accommodate the learning styles of both an adult student and a teenager but they somehow did it! Bethany is an amazing voice teacher and worked really well with both of us! She was so helpful. In fact, everyone there is very helpful and kind. I never had a bad experience. They were always on time and reasonably priced for the attention and instruction we received. I highly recommend The Music Connection.
