Michael and his group had a wide repertoire. The seemed to instinctively know the kind of music our group would like and we’re able to field almost any request.

Becca is absolutely amazing. She is patient and very knowledgeable. She knows the perfect way to communicate with my 7 year old so she can understand

We were searching for a piano teacher. Someone suggested I use Thumbtack. It made it easy to find exactly what we were looking for. We found a very sweet professional teacher who is in our area. I'm very happy with our choice. Mrs. O'Hearn has been great! I would recommend her to anyone who needs her service.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $25.00 per lesson ~ 30 minutes. We offer family discounts if you have more than one person in a family taking lessons. Ask us about group lessons if you are interested in that too.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First off, we find out what a new student's current level of musical ability is. Then we find out what the student wants to learn and go from there.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Rebecca has played and taught piano for almost 40 years. She emphasizes reading and theory at every level. She is also a credentialed teacher with 2 decades experience in the classroom. Mike ((drums) has played semi professional for 40 years and has taught off and on throughout that time. Michael (bass guitar) minored in music at CSUB and plays a variety of styles with a deep understanding of music theory. The three of us perform regularly, whether together with our band Studio O Rhythm Section, or with other musicians. (You can often catch us most Tuesday nights at the Bakersfield Jazz Workshop).
