Mimi did well helping my son Micca with his biology lessons. We're expecting A's now
My 11 year old daughter has been taking violin lessons with Mindy for about 3 months. She is enjoying her lessons and she is making excellent progress. Recently she played violin onstage with Mindy at a recital. I was very proud of her.
I feel grateful for finding Garrick on Thumbtack! He has taught my 8 year old son, who is a beginner at guitar. Garrick's infectious love for life and music has really inspired my son. He has offered a great mix of fun and technique during lessons and my son was quickly able to play songs and enjoy playing his instrument. I would highly recommend Garrick as a teacher.
Kelly made the first lesson super fun and engaging for my boys. We will be continuing lessons with Kelly!
As a lifelong guitarist who was self taught I decided that I needed to try my hand at a different instrument. I had always wanted to learn the piano so I decided to give it a go. Being a self taught musician, I had lots of bad habits that I took with me to my piano lessons with Stella. She was incredibly patient with me and helped me undo decades of bad practice habits along with teaching me good habits to replace them with. Her knowledge of music and her talent on the piano are clearly evident and she knows how to translate that into teaching others, which is an often challenging task. All in all, the lessons were a valuable experience that I would certainly recommended to anyone interested in learning piano.
We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.
David is an absolute pro. I actually refer to him as "the best teacher I've ever had, for anything." He's good at both pushing you to develop new knowledge and skills, and also supporting and re-hashing prior lessons and learnings. I'd highly highly recommend David for any aspiring or veteran guitarist, looking to greatly expand their skills.
My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.
She's very knowledgable. Singing can be frustrating because both you and your teacher are trying to undo years of bad habits that has developed over the years without you knowing. Some days it feels like everything is totally awesome and you're on your way to becoming an awesome singer, and then some days you can feel like you're banging your head against a brick wall. She is always thinking of ways to help you break through and undo your bad habits so don't give up once you hit a wall! She is very positive and will always push you to improve yourself while making sure you do not injure yourself. She offers deals if you happen to buy sets of lessons vs. just 1.
I started piano lessons with Toby in January 2017. Toby is one of the best teachers I have ever known. She is incredibly patient, well-organized, and customizes lessons to fit each student's unique needs. I am a Chopin lover and Toby specializes in Romantic period composers like Chopin. She truly cares about the progress of her students. Toby lets her students choose their pieces and she often plays select classical pieces to inspire and push me. I am starting a beginning intermediate Chopin piece already as she has really inspired me to practice and improve. She has also played some of her original compositions which are beautiful. She is a virtuoso pianist. I feel so lucky to have her as a teacher. Don't hesitate to contact her for lessons.
My son has been learning from Ms Laura for the past 5 months and just loves her. He is very excited to go to lessons and is motivated to practice given her incentive techniques. We are very pleased with our experience with Laura. She communicates well with the parents via email and understands children very well. Highly recommend Laura for beginning piano lessons!!
Sedat is not only an amazing guitarist himself but is incredible with children of all ages. He can communicate with all age groups and is a very hands on teacher. He is also very knowledgeable in all instruments, knows his music very well. Both my children are learning so much from him in every lesson. Thank you Sedat!
I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.
We have had the pleasure of knowing Elizabeth for the past few years during which she has taught singing to our daughter, Katia, at home. Not only is Elizabeth knowledgeable, she is patient, thoughtful and considerate of her students. She puts nervous singers at ease while encouraging them to explore their full potential. We are most fortunate to have Elizabeth as Katia's singing instructor as our daughter really looks forward to her weekly lessons.
My lessons with Miriam are awesome! She's not just teaching me about singing or how to use my voice but also everything around it like posture and emotions. She helps and encourages me to push my limit, expanding my vocal range. I'm really enjoying my lesson with her and always looking forward to our next session!
I have known Lynn for 35 years and you cannot ask for a better piano teacher. Lynn started teaching me piano 35 years ago, and now she is teaching my daughter. Lynn is extremely caring, knowledgeable and passionate. Our daughter has flourished since beginning piano lessons with Lynn 2 years ago; she is playing advanced songs that most students her age wouldn't be able to play. Lynn makes learning piano fun, and our daughter enjoys practicing daily without us having to remind her. We are very happy to have Lynn as our teacher, and would encourage anyone interested in piano to call her first.
I struggled with piano as a child. It made me feel like I would never be capable of learning music. Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Forrest, and he proved me wrong. I'm proud to say that I can play open chords with ease! I'm excited for more lessons!
My daughters (5 and 12 years old) and I have been taking piano lessons with Kathy for 10 months now. She's very punctual and friendly. We can see that Kathy uses different approaches when teaching my 5yo and 12yo (who have different personality and experience level in piano), and her teaching methods are effective to both kids. As a dad, I also enjoy taking lessons with Kathy as she is experienced in teaching adults as well. I can't practice regularly and sometimes find it hard to keep up, but Kathy is patient and helps me set up learning goals. Kathy also selected materials that are good for parents and kids learning together. Now I am able to play duets with my daughters and we have so much fun playing piano together. Thank you Kathy! You're the best teacher we've got :)
Sarah participated in the St. John's choir and also took private vocal lessons with Emily to improve her singing and confidence. We found Emily to be fun, responsible, engaging, and we saw great improvements in Sarah's abilities during her time with Emily. Additionally, I will emphasize that Emily has great skill in working with a variety of personalities, including expert skills in working with special needs kids.
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
I began receiving lessons from Miss Kathleen when I was in the 4th grade. She has been my private tutor for the past 8 years, and we only recently stopped having lessons due to her move. She has played a very big role in becoming the musician I am today. With her help and instruction, I participate in my school's highest orchestra, in the Capitol Symphonic Youth Orchestra, and in events such as District Orchestra. She has always inspired and encouraged me to pursue my music related aspirations and, because of that, I plan on studying music in college and pursue it as a career. I can't imagine what I would have done with out her. Over the years of lessons, she has become more than just a teacher. She is my close friend who I continue to go to for advice.
