Stephan was a joy. The tuning went smoothly and I had my first piano lesson immediately following it. His breadth of knowledge is very impressive and his sensitivity to the gaps in mine made me feel very comfortable and helped with my own particular learning curve. I would highly recommend Stephan as a tuner and a teacher...
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.
Silo is absolutely a great guitar instructor. He is always willing to work with our busy schedule and is very flexible. Silo also is teaching my son about music theory, along with reading music and the basics of learning how to play. My son finds his instruction easy to follow. He is always enthusiastic to teach which is so refreshing and just what my son needs. My son is even now teaching his dad a little guitar. Keaton also entertained the whole family at Christmas with a few holiday tunes he learned. So grateful to such a hands on teacher. Silo is top notch, personable and professional guitar teacher. I would highly recommend and have everyone interested in learning guitar that he's the best.
Edvin is a master in teaching. He listens and adjusts his lessons to my learning ability.
Beautiful music! I am excited for the party, and we found a piano teach as well!
I have had up to 40 students a year, and have traditionally held two recitals a year--one in the fall and one in the spring.
I am Judy Brunton and would love to extend to you my understanding of musical theory. The goal of my teaching will leave one with the equivalent of a minor in music, the ability to learn any song at will, and the opportunity to transcend and express timeless human emotion. I believe that playing music is a gateway to divinity and an absolute blessing to humanity. I look forward to meeting you.
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 love what I do and love teaching others what I love doing! A spirit of quality and excellence is my distiguishing factor, done with fun and of course a smile! An attitude of graditude will take you farther than you can imagine!
I get results from time spent on lessons that I teach.
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.
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.
Our program is unique in that we include piano keyboard activities in our music classes for our youngest students, our toddlers and preschoolers.
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 a Berklee College of Music graduate, guitarist, and Bachelor of Music Ed. I have toured as a guitarist with the likes of Macy Grey, Tony Bennett, as well as former Miles Davis Group member, John Bigham. I have worked with many industry pro's such as Tonight show band leader, Ricky Minor. I am teaching private lessons in your hood on such instruments as guitar, bass, piano or any brass or wood winds.
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!
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 teach guitar to students at the beginning to intermediate level of playing depending on what he/she wants to play. I have a broad range of genres to cover. Contact me for details!
I teach piano to students of any age. I have been teaching for 2 years. I am a high school student. I am an advanced student and I plan to major in composition at USC for film scoring.
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 am teaching beginning guitar and bass guitar from starting to intermediate to all ages. I teach beyond basic chords, and I teach popular songs in which the students like and are familiar with.
