  • I would recommend this business

My four year old daughter decided, on her own, that she wanted to take ballet. Veksler is near us and it had good reviews so we gave it a try. We are greeted so kindly every time we arrive at class by the front office. Miss Poon is an absolute magical fairy. Who else could have the patience to teach ballet to four year olds! The recital was beautiful and our daughter loved being on the stage and loved her costume! We are so happy and our daughter is too!

Customer Testimonials

Testimonial from Lazar Fleishman, Professor

For family circumstances, my 5-year son could take just one semester of piano lessons in Veksler Academy of Music. But this experience had a profound impact on his general development, his attitude toward study, his self-consciousness and self-esteem. He has learned how to confront the challenges and to make the best use of his time and efforts. He has discovered the miracle of overcoming difficulties and of achieving results to be proud of. He loved his teacher and loved the music he was to study. The culminating event of the semester was the school's public concert in the Le Petit Trianon Theater in San Jose. Not only every kid tried to mobilize and demonstrate all his or her potential for this event, but it learned them also to appreciate the effort and worth of their peers. The Veksler Academy faculty are splendid musicians and superb teachers who are bringing to the Bay Area the best artistic and musical-pedagogical traditions of the world-famous Russian piano school.

Testimonial from Shefali Chinni (Akhilesh's mom)

Our son started learning Piano (private lessons) when he was a little over 3.5 yrs old. Even though our son enjoyed listening to music and is/was good at memorizing the tunes/songs ...we were a little skeptical about his ability to stay focused and learn Piano at that young age. Within a month's time we were pleasantly surprised to see his progress... Our son is now nearly 4 yrs 9 months and has already given 2 wonderful recitals. He now religiously practices piano every day...and enjoys attending his weekly classes. The piano teachers at Veksler Academy are very patient while interacting with young kids and yet very professional. We very highly recommend Veksler Academy !!.

My 2 kids started the piano lessons at 6 and 8. They like the teachers and the piano lessons. The teachers are enthusiastic in the music and dedicated to students success. The school has the flexibility to arrange the lessons for my kids at the same time. Otherwise I would have to wait longer for them to finish the class one by one. Piano lessons help kids in self esteem, coordination, and concentration. I would recommend this music school for the parents

Our 8 years old son started taking lessons at this school 2 years ago. It's unbelievable what he has achieved in such a short time. Now he plays Beethoven and Bach, while his peers from other schools are still struggling with Old McDonald had a farm. Dedicated personal, high cultural and teaching standards greatly contributed to his success

My daughter goes here for Ballet, Jazz and VIP (performance) for the past 3 years. The teacher is very professional. The performances are many which empowers the dancers and increases motivation. I am extremely pleased with the advancement of my daughter. It also helped increase her self confidence and improved her grace and posture in general. I would highly recommend Veksler Academy for all dance types and levels.

My daughter has been attending Veksler since she was three, the Angelina Ballerina days. To this day, she misses the pink tutu and ears. She's had trouble with her vision since a young age, the classes taught her self confidence and improved her balance. Her teachers taught her discipline while having fun too! She's stuck with dance now for four years! We loved Ms. Marianna and Ms. Laura, such patience.

From Our Website

Our guitar lessons include acoustic, electric and bass guitar. We have an excellent guitar teaching staff and teach guitar lessons in many styles including rock to jazz, classical, pop, Spanish and chording. Many of our teachers actively perform in bands. Our guitar teachers have college or university music degrees so they know how to teach the proper theory and technique no matter if a student is interested in metal or in classical. Guitar lessons at our schools are enhanced by the opportunity of learning how to jam with other musicians in a rock band setting (summer camps) put together by the instructors or how to perform solo in one of our recitals.

We offer a wide variety of drum lessons or percussion lessons. Most of our students learn on a drum kit. We have both male and female students and typically do not start drum lessons before the age 7 as students need to be able to reach both the pedal and the cymbals. We do have some younger students but suggest they come in for a trial drum lesson to see if they are big enough to get started. Drum lessons are taught on a drum kit in our studios but students are able to get started practicing at home on practice pads before purchasing or renting a drum kit.

Year-End Dance Shows are the perfect venue for you or your child to show family and friends the results of months of learning and practice. Our recitals are organized and designed to eliminate stage fright and help performers build self esteem. Our Dance Shows are an entertaining event for parents, grandparents, neighbors and the other dancers waiting to perform backstage.

Students of Veksler Academy have an opportunity to perfom twice a year in our Music Recitals. Beginning from Winter 2015, our recitals will be held in beautiful 250 seats Santa Clara University - Center For Performing Arts, featuring 9 foot Steinway Grand piano, world-class acoustics, fully air-conditioned modern concert hall with rehearsal room. It is located at 952 Franklin Street, Santa Clara CA 95050. There is also a free nearby parking garage at the corner of Franklin and Aviso street. Our recitals are the perfect venue for you or your child to show family and friends the results of months of learning and practice.
