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.

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!.

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 daughter started learning piano from here and takes private lessons. She started when she was 3yrs and 8 months. Her concentration and musical sense has increased since then. She gave her first recital when she was 4 yrs and 3 months and the second recital just this month. Both she did well. What I like the most is, the teacher is very nice to the kids and is a perfectionist. There is no compromise for the musical theory and practical playing. All the recitals, are very professional. All the kids need to play without seeing. Even in the class, they pass a song, only when they play without seeing perfectly. My daughter looks forward to the class every week. I really think, investing our time and money in the best piano school from the beginning matters the most for our children.

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.

Chunyang Meng (Jerry's and Addie's mom)


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.

Edward Salatovka (Mark's dad)


Timothy started the piano classes a half year ago and he really likes his teacher.

He likes coming to piano class and teacher always encourages and inspires my son.

Also the staff, Ms Nelly is very friendly and professional to organize the schedule. We do enjoy this warm and happy atmosphere in Veksler Academy

Whenever I have piano lessons, I am eager to learn more about my songs and how to improve them. To me piano is a way of expressing how I feel. My piano teacher helps me learn a lot by following every little detail on the song to make it sound professional. I really enjoy coming to piano lessons every week. Thank you!

I like my teacher very much, he is very friendly and it's fun to talk to him and learn from him. I enjoy how every one here is very kind and sweet. I enjoy how my teacher helps me when I don't know how to make my songs better. I love my lessons and to come here.

I like the song I played, I also like the sound of the music and I had very much fun by learning. I feel very happy after every piano lesson.

Lena Kunjan

I have been learning piano for since being 6 years old under the guidance of an excellent teacher, and it has changed my life tremendously. I find music as a way of expressing myself, a way of focusing my mind, a way of entertaining myself and others, a way of discovering myself and the world around me, a way of life. Now at 15, I understand the difference that a great piano teacher made in motivating, encouraging, challenging, and guiding me in my musical endeavors. Undoubtedly, what I've learned through and about music will stick with me for the rest of my life, as it has become a part of me as much as anything else.

Rahul Kuchibhatla

I've learned piano for seven years, and I can honestly say that it has changed my life. Introduction into the world of music was something that was the beginning of a breathtaking adventure. Out of all the schools I have seen, attended, and played at, I have to say that the Veksler Academy of Music and Dance is by far the best. The staff are well trained, and the facilities are well maintained. I can personally vouch for music from experience. What makes the difference in one's musical journey is the teacher, something I found out the hard way. I have to say that the Veksler Academy of Music and Dance has teachers who are truly passionate about teaching, and they will make every effort to make sure that their students find the same love for music that we are all so entitled to have.

My two kids are taking piano lessons at Veksler Academy. It has been a great experience at the academy. The kids enjoy their classes and have not complained once! The staff is very friendly and make the kids feel at ease.

Juya Kishanan (Amit's & Sudiksha's mom)

The piano lesson are great. My teacher is very nice and inspiring. I started Learning piano in third grade and after less then 3 years I was better then all my friends. I played in many recitals and finished level 5 of CM test. I really enjoy my piano classes and never understand why kids don't want to play piano.

Angela Wu

My kids started their piano lessons at 4.5 years old. I observed the first class and was very surprised how quick my boy learned the music symbols out of the simplified explanations from the teacher. The teachers always encourage my kids in very positive ways and also give me the tips about how to let the kids love to play piano at home. A good teacher will not only teach the piano but also will lead the kids to enjoy the music for their life time. I am glad that my kids are so lucky to have such wonderful teachers.

Christina Zhao (David's and Julia's mom)

I have been taking piano lessons with my teacher for 8 years. Thought this time, I have learned and experienced much. I have grown in not only body but also mind. But during these eight years, learning music has been an important part of my life. It allowed me to learn things in different way and see the world differently. I also got to experience new things such as playing in recitals. At first, the thought of performing in front of others was a scary idea, just like all other performers feel. However, as I played in more and more recitals, I become more comfortable with the idea of playing in front of others. I also learned music history and many interesting and complex songs such as "Hungarian Rhapsody #2" by F. Liszt that I can play at family gathering. Thank you for teaching me this invaluable skill. This knowledge will help me for many years to come.
