Stephan did an amazing job on our ancient and terribly out of tune piano! He truly loves his craft and is a total joy to work with.

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 will be using Thumbtack again.

This instructor was the first one to reach out to me when I was looking for a guitar teacher for my 7 year old niece. He was willing to work with our crazy schedule which was a bonus. My husband takes our niece to her lessons and was impressed with the instructors patience, teaching ability and talent.

Dustin's Piano Lessons

    Dustin's Piano Lessons are a great experience for my son. This was his first time learning piano, and Dustin did an excellent job in setting the foundation for my son's current musical successes. Our family appreciated the productive lessons and patience shown by Dustin towards our 4th grader. The only constructive advice I can pass on to others of our experience with Dustin is to directly ask him for more rigor if your son or daughter are up for it. We found at times that he finished his piano homework quickly, and could have used a bit more to do. After telling Dustin this, he promptly set up supplemental material that my son is currently devouring with musical gusto. Our family appreciates the quality that Dustin's Piano Lessons brings, and we highly recommend him to any family.

    I love to teach the basics of guitar, including, but not limited to, knowing the instrument, how to tune the instrument, and tune by ear if capable. I will teach further, if the progress and drive are there, like certain songs you might want to learn.


    I am CPR and water safety certified professional. I can teach swimming lessons. I'm fun and can teach anyone to swim.


    What I do is very basic and very simple. I create a bond with a student, and I find out what kind of music they are really in to. I start with the basics of teaching my students the knowledge of their guitar, so not only will they be able to play it, but they will be able to service it. Then, I teach them basic chords, scales, and pentatonic scales. Then, I move on to teach them how to read and write tabs, and once they have learned their rhythm and picking skills, I can even teach them to convert chords to notes on a piano. I can teach them to convert their material from their guitar to a bass. I have a passion for music and opening eyes up to it. I love to teach, and I have a great teaching reputation. I simply charge $30.00 for a 90 minute lesson, and the first lesson is free so that I can get to know my student.


    I am a Bakersfield based guitar player. I will help beginners and intermediate guitarist with chords and help them understand what they are playing.


    I know a lot about guitars, and I have seven years of experience. I have played as a jazz guitarist for four years, and I know a lot of theory.


    I am currently teaching guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele. Lessons range from: * Beginning - learn to read music notation and applying what you learn to the fretboard * Intermediate - learn chords, scales, and finger positions * Advanced - learn arpeggios, modes, fingerpicking styles, solo structure/riffs, etc. All lessons are done at California Keyboards in my music studio. Parents are invited to sit in and attend the class with their student, if they prefer.

    I was classically trained on piano spending 3 years at the Paris Conservatory. At age 14 I fell in love with rock n roll and picked up the guitar, and never looked back. Music is pure. Learning is not only up to the teacher but also the student. If my student has passion and discipline, we will do great things together. I have a vast knowledge about music, composition, arrangement and songwriting...and playing different styles. Remember that an instrument is just that: An Instrument. The individual talent, focus, self discipline belongs to the student. Talent is a big one too and let's not forget the spirit of music.


    I'm a Spanish teacher, and I teach the grammar classes. I also translate personal letters during my free time.


    I get results from time spent on lessons that I teach.


    After attending music school in Los Angeles, I moved back to Bakersfield. I have a lot of free time so why not teach what I love to do!


    We Teach the knowledge that will get you on stage fast. We don't spend months teaching scales.


    I teach private piano and voice lessons for ages seven to adult. I am experienced with home school students, group lessons, day care music and working with EMR, MR and children with attention disorder.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

    You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

    What does a Spanish tutor do?

    The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

    A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

    What is CPR training?

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

    What is first aid training?

    With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

    First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

    • Asthma attack
    • Anaphylaxis
    • Burns
    • Choking
    • Diabetic emergencies
    • External bleeding
    • Heart attack
    • Poisoning
    • Neck, head or back injury
    • Stroke
    • Seizure

    First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

    What can you do with a first aid certificate?

    People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations..
