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.

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 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 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 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 get results from time spent on lessons that I teach.


    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 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 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.


    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 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 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.


    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 a professional vocal coach who travels across the globe. I provide quality vocal techniques, along with vocal arrangements for studio work or live concerts/recordings.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
