My son was a voice, ukulele, and piano lesson for for more than 2 years when I finally decided to, stop procrastinating and join him. During the past two years we have attended most of the showcases and enjoyed performances by her students. Lena has the extraordinary talent, capability, and patience of working and teaching every person in all age categories a wide variety of instruments as well as voice. Sky music also offers studio recording services. Can't be happier with my choice. Good job Lena.

Learn how to develop your musical skills, in a fun and relaxed environment. Learn whatever kind of music or whatever song you want to. Lena's curriculum is very customizable.

Lena’s the best! She’s so talented! Not only in music, but also working with kids. Every lesson was always fun and helpful.

I can't express just how glad I am that I found Lena two years ago when my sons wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Her approach is perfect and makes them love learning and playing. They're also learning how to perform (playing and singing) on-stage, which has so many added benefits, musically and personally. I can't imagine there's a better teacher and experience around.

First lesson. She is organized, has a plan and a process, and it seems still will be able to customize to my specific goals. Great start!

Leena is an awesome teacher, She is very freindly and very very knowledgeable . My kids are learning for more than a year from her and they are really doing great . I wish her the best and would advise all Parents Please do not Hesitate to bring your kids To sky Music Cause you will miss out on something great.

I am an adult guitar student. Lena is a terrific teacher! She is organized and has a plan. She is very positive and encouraging. I am learning a lot from her and enjoying the process

We love Lena! She is so friendly, knowledgeable, and organized! She has a great approach with beginners. We are so glad we found her!!

I couldn’t have asked for a better instructor for my daughter’s first guitar lesson experience. Lena’s lessons are focused in her student’s interests and level of experience. Would HIGHLY recommend Lena for anyone who is interested in leaning how to play a guitar.

Lena is an absolutely fantastic teacher. She provides the encouragement needed for the beginner and the constructive feedback to take a person to new heights. I look forward to every lesson with her.

Lena is simply amazing. I learned more about music in the first half hour, than I have in the last 25 years. Patient, talented, humorous, very inviting. A perfect personality and skill for teaching. Looking forward to the next lesson.

Lena is amazing! Makes you feel at ease and establishes a process with goals in mind.

Lena is an excellent instructor. Lily feels very comfortable with her.

Lena is PHENOMENAL! I've been taking lessons with her for 1.5 years and still going! Though she has chapters of curriculum to follow, she tailors her curriculum for each student so that they learn at their own pace, and she doesn't always go in order by chapter either! She gives you what you need when you are ready for it. 

Her experience as a teacher, guitarist, singer/songwriter, and performer all come into play during her lessons (at least, for me anyway!). As a new singer/songwriter myself, she not only teaches me guitar at a pace that matches my own, but also provides guidance on vocals, setlist creation, and live or studio performance tips. And she has a seasonal Live Showcase Performance at a local music venue for any of her students that are interested in gaining live performance experience.

Lena is honest and encouraging all at once... which is a hard balance to maintain. I highly respect her as a mentor and musician. If not for her, I never would have discovered my ability to become a singer/songwriter and release my first EP!

Bottom line: if you can get on her lesson roster... DON'T WAIT!

I started taking guitar lessons with Lena a little over a year ago. I had no prior experience. Though Lena would never say it, I’m probably any music teacher's nightmare. I don’t practice enough, I’m not able to keep a consistent schedule, and, every once in a while, I’ll carry my guitar around without a case!

Here are some things about Lena that are evident to me after working with her for nearly a year.
1) She’s a really patient and friendly teacher / person. This matters, especially for someone like me who is committed to learning but also can’t always get in the practice time daily. She helps me progress at my own pace, and when I come for lessons, it’s ‘So what have you been working on?’ rather than ‘Why don’t you know this by now?’

2) She tailors the learning experience to the your musical tastes. Her technical knowledge is very strong, and she knows how to teach the fundamentals through songs that you like. This was huge for me — I was always more motivated to practice harder on music I liked.

3) She’s passionate about music and is really involved with the local scene. She organizes charitable events, open mic nights, music showcases. So working with her immediately plugs you in with the local scene if that’s your interest.

I really enjoyed working with Lena.

The best! Her curriculum and teaching style is excellent, and you can tell she tailors her lessons to the particular student. As someone starting acoustic guitar in their mid-twenties, I wasn't sure what to expect going into lessons at a late age. But Lena was open and welcoming! She is also patient and so encouraging! She always makes me feel like I'm making progress no matter how small the improvement is.

Lena is just awesome I was shopping around but after my boys joined Sky music my shopping journey was accomplished. Lena is fun loving with kids and my boys picked up so soon.

My girls have been getting voice lessons from Lena for about 6 months now, and it has been a wonderful experience. Lena is energetic, creative, and fun, and my girls have a great time singing, learning, and trying new things. This has been such a great creative outlet for them! We highly recommend Sky Music!
