About Us

Prior to relocating to the Las Vegas area in August 2012, our diverse professional backgrounds led us to join forces in Seattle, Washington, where we taught a delightful private studio of children and adults.

Ariella Mak-Neiman spent her childhood in Wisconsin, earned a Bachelor of Music (Piano Performance) and Bachelor of Arts (Psychology) at the University of Washington and a Master of Music (Piano Performance) and Master of Arts (Strategic Public Relations) at the University of Southern California, and continued with graduate studies in music history at Yale University. A former faculty member of the Seeds of Learning School in Seattle and the Pialish School of Music in Los Angeles, she concentrates primarily on teaching in her private studio and as the newest faculty member of the Nevada School of the Arts.

Adam Neiman grew up in California, earned his Bachelor of Music (Piano Performance) and numerous awards during his time at The Juilliard School, and enjoys an active career as an international concert pianist and recording artist. In addition to his private teaching in New York, Philadelphia, and Seattle, he has served on the faculties of the Manchester Music Festival in Vermont and the Great Mountains Music Festival in Korea and is currently on the piano faculty of the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University.

With our unique blend of experiences and over 20 years of teaching between us, we offer our students an exceptionally well-rounded musical education that embodies a combination of discipline and knowledge to serve them in all areas of their lives. We love working with our students, and we hope that you will consider becoming a valuable part of our musical family!
