Customer Testimonials

Testimonial from Lazar Fleishman, Professor, Stanford University (Arnold's dad)

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 Sugandha Jain (Arul's mom)

My son started his first private piano lesson at the Veksler school over a year ago when he was just 3.5 years of age. We had tried another private piano teacher before this and had felt very disheartened. But I am glad we tried the Veksler School! The teachers at the school are extremely dedicated and focused on teaching and catering to each age group separately. With our son, we found the teacher had an amazing amount of patience - getting through to a 3.5 year old with music lessons on the piano is a tough job - my son at just the age of 5 can now recognize wrong notes after playing a song once! Not only teaching, but the staff also helps inculcate a lot of confidence in children with their patience and understanding that each age group is different and moreover, each child is different. We have seen that piano lessons have improved our son's concentration, coordination skills and raised his self esteem.

At the Veksler school, they even organize recitals at the theater where the children get an opportunity twice a year to play on stage. Some added benefits are the professionally set up music studios designed for all ages- adjustable benches, foot stools, a professional environment, friendly staff, a place where students can learn both music and dance. We first heard of the Veksler Academy from one of our friends who had their son enrolled there at the same age - 3.5 years. Now we would happily recommend to parents with kids as young as 3.5-4 that piano classes can be an extremely useful tool in their child's learning and growing process. At least with our son enrolled at Veksler Academy we do feel fortunate that we found the correct place for his private lessons!.

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 !!.

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.
