Took acoustic guitar lessons with Thomas through Music School 21–he is an incredibly patient, understanding, knowledgable, and encouraging teacher! Even though lessons were online, Thomas had a set-up that created an optimal online lesson experience. Thanks so much to Rok and Thomas for a great music learning experience!
Music School 21 performed a fantastic cultural arts assembly for our elementary school, students found the material truly engaging and learned a lot while gaining an appreciation for rhythm, notes, and music. The performance was superb and very well prepared.
Music School 21 is a great music school. We started our kids there as a way to keep them busy during the pandemic, since the school offers live online classes. Not only has it helped keep them occupied, they have shown real growth in their piano skills in a relatively short time. Their teacher is very good at keeping their attention despite the online challenges and seems to have a real knack for relating to children and communicating ideas in a way they can understand. I would highly recommend it!
We had been looking for a piano teacher for a while when I found Rok’s school of music. He is the 3rd piano teacher that our 8 year old daughter has had (this is just to basically show you how much we had to search till we found the right one). All what I can tell you is that our daughter was ready to give up because she was not motivated/did not enjoy piano or music.
She started with Rok a year ago and she is LOVING piano, studies EVERY single day and I have seen progress that I had not seen in any of the other years since we started 5 years ago. This is to Rok’s credit. He is patient, disciplined, very knowledgeable in pedagogic methods of music but also uses his psychological skills to motivate his students adapting to their needs. I could not recommend him more.
My 8-year old and teenager both take piano lessons with Rok at Chevy Chase Music and they both enjoy it very much. Rok is an expert pianist and an educator who understands kids well and can adjust to their moods and different personalities. He is also patient and flexible which we appreciate.
Rok is a fantastic teacher! He’s patient yet firm when necessary. My son has improved by leaps and bounds. Most importantly, Rok makes piano fun!
