I have four kids in lessons-they all love her. They want to practice and impress her. She is affordable; I would not have been able to put all of them in lessons if not for her prices. My kids are progressing nicely and she is fantastic at encouraging them.
Bobbi is great! I have been taking singing lessons from her for about 5 years, off and on. Started with a group intro class of 4 students where we were all totally scared, then I transitioned into private lessons where I found that I really might be able to sing after all! I sign up for 6 to 12 weeks a year usually...enough to move to the next level of confidence and technique. I'm obviously not that driven but sure like to have fun and get out of my comfort zone. This year a group of 4 signed up for her group singing class, which has been a blast learning to harmonize on the spot, get past another level of jitters and use the mics. Even did a recital together. Bobbi is gracious and encouraging - and yes she can sing!
Ron has so much experience in the music business! He brings plenty of knowledge to my lessons, as well as fun and humor. He has a great method for practicing called "pack a lunch" that we use very often in our lessons. He can pick out any areas where I might be struggling and find a way to fix it and make it better. Ron's taste in music is also very broad. Whatever you wish to learn, he can help you with.
Had our first trial lesson with Mary. I'm so excited to have my daughter start taking lessons. She seems very knowledgeable we saw the difference immediately to me daughter's singing.
It was difficult to find somebody to trust for my daughter's singing lessons, Laura has been very very kind. She has been able to work around my busy schedule. Very affordable and willing to work with me, she was able to gain my trust.
I get more confident with each lesson. And it's great having someone who will tailor the lesson to your needs and work wth your weaknesses.
Michelle is a great teacher. Very clear and encouraging, and paces the lessons to my level very well. I am enjoying these lessons!
Very laid-back way of teaching, knowledgable and willing to answer questions makes for great lessons.
Just started taking lessons with Mike. He is a great instructor. Soon I will be the greatest guitarist in my house, thanks to Mike. Seriously, you won't find a better instructor in Arizona!
I started lessons with Mary when I was 14 years old when I moved to Tempe and knew absolutely nobody. I came to her with prior knowledge, as I've been playing piano since the age of four, but I never received such a high-quality lesson from any other teacher. A lesson with Mary is more than a lesson, it's an experience. Upon meeting her, you can immediately feel the love she has for teaching passionate students and for music itself. She plays with expertise that transcends physical boundaries. She does her research to understand the composers' intentions behind every note. Her skills are unmatched. Mary and I have grown so close in the past two years, and I'm so glad I can call her my friend. She's made me a better musician as well as a better person.
My children have been taking lessons from Reggie for over three years. He is a very knowledgeable and patient teacher. He encouraged them to play many styles of music as well as their favorites. He made lessons fun and enjoyable. He highly recommend Reggie!
I love working with Elizabeth! I’m taking lessons every week now!
I am delighted to recommend Maryanne Kremer-Ames as a guitar teacher. She is simply wonderful. I feel that studying with her has made me not just a better guitarist but also a better musician, as my ear for music has steadily developed in a way that allows me to appreciate all kinds of music more deeply. After going through four guitar teachers in seven years, I finally found Maryanne and have never looked back. I can truly say that since studying with Maryanne, I have learned how to Improve the quality of sound I get from my guitar Get the most out of my practice time Phrase the music I am learning so I am truly making music instead of just hitting the right notes Conquer difficult passages by breaking them down into smaller chunks so I can more readily identify the underlying problem that is holding me back Lock in the correct fundamentals of posture, hand position, fingernail shape, and so on that will improve my sound and increase my joy in playing Prepare for playing in front of an audience As a teacher Maryanne is patient and easy to work with. She creates a pressure-free learning environment in which everything is adapted to my individual goals and needs. Thanks to her positive approach, I really enjoy the lessons they actually offer relief from my daily stress! I cant say enough good things about her as an instructor. Shes definitely the best guitar teacher I have ever had.
My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Amethyst. She is very friendly and patient! Also the convenience of having the lessons at home is extremely helpful!
i am taking my first vocal lessons and working with Sam is awesome. I feel comfortable singing with my untrained (aka crappy) voice around him. I've learned a lot in a very short amount of time and look forward to growing with more time and practice
I'm learning finger style guitar. I had no experience reading music and playing guitar. Roger taught me to read music, proper technique, chord progressions. Now I can play simple songs with confidence. I'm continuing lessons with Roger Paull Guitar and learning more complicated pieces. I recommend Roger Paull Guitar to beginners and experience guitarist who want to improve their technique.
The first thing that stood out was his response time, it was fast! He is extremely knowledgeable and explains the material in different ways if needed. Gears lessons towards once interest. Would definitely recommend!
"To me being an awesome guitarist and an excellent instructor are two different things. Somebody who is both is a genius in my dictionary. Fortunately for me, Michael is that rare genius and is extremely professional. I rate my instructors on the following characteristics: * Knowledge of, expertise, and enthusiasm for the subject matter and teaching * Good organization of subject matter and course * Effective communication * Positive attitudes toward students * Fairness in evaluation * Flexibility in approaches to teaching I am very picky about the quality of lessons I get. I have tried various instructors in the past, and some of them I couldn't continue with, for more than a couple of weeks. A few of them were good in teaching music that they know best, some were only good in certain genre. You throw anything at Michael (rock, metal, jazz, blues, funk etc.), and his ears will pick anything and everything within the human audible range. If its played in the record, (it will be on) your tab sheet. The music you will play is as accurate as it can get. Not only he writes accurate tabs, he can hear what effects are being used. His knowledge about audio engineering is vast too, and can help you achieve the tone you like the most. His gear recommendations are excellent. He is a great guitarist and his attention to technical details of playing is unmatched. His approach is very scientific to everything. If he is telling you something, believe me, there is a reason behind it. I can go on and on raving about his instructions and what he has to offer, and I am able to do this with utmost confidence because of the vast improvements in my playing style, my understanding of music and gear, and the ease at which I am able to play more complex music within a period of just 2 years. All in all this is a great product offering for a very decent price. Thanks Michael."
Mr. McCasland helped our entire staff with Spanish. He made lessons enjoyable and engaging. He helped us determine the words that were most important for our industry and then created a plan to teach us those phrases that would allow us to serve our customers. He made us laugh, and we learned. He showed us our before and after progress report and made it clear that he had actually taught us.
Very intune to my child & her excitement to learn. Wonderful benefit for me not having to run to another lesson with on home lessons!!
Vera is a wonderful teacher and mentor to my children. She is very organized, patient and friendly. She motivates them in a gentle and positive way which make them happy and excited to attend each session and to practice their piano lessons as well. I've seen remarkable improvement in my children's music ability as well as their grades and performance in school .
