We found Sid on Thumbtack and he has been giving guitar lessons to myself and my two kids for last 18 months. He is super great with the kids and an awesome teacher. Would highly recommend.

Guitar and drum lessons. James is amazing. Personable, easy going, and professional. Teaches according to student's abilities and desires. Can learn any song you want to learn and then show you in a manner you can handle.

I used to be able to sing but now I merely croak. I just began weekly voice lessons with Natalia and after only one session my pipes are stronger and my range has improved. As a teacher she is both a delight and knows her stuff. Best of all, she's extremely encouraging and creates an environment that allows you to make mistakes. The location is both professional and warming, just like Natalia.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.

Stefano is a great teacher! I started taking drum lessons as an adult who'd always wanted to learn drums but had no experience. Stefano makes sure to work at your pace, finding the balance between pushing you to grow while ensuring you grasp everything and are actively improving and understanding. He also dives right into your favorite music making practicing fun and satisfying from the very start.

Christian is very easy to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about what he teaches. I have been playing without lessons for about 10 years and he's already opening me up to fundamentals that I know will improve my playing drastically. I highly recommend him to anyone who is just starting or even a more experienced player. Looking forward to continue my lessons with him.

My son has been taking drum lessons from Damien for the past 8 years now. Damien plays many instruments including drums, guitar, and bass. He is always a professional. He walks the students out after each lesson to say a quick hello to the parent. He is always well dressed and treats each lesson as important. He is an extremely talented musician and I'm so happy we found him. My son still looks forward to seeing him each week after all these years, and really has become a great drummer under Damien's instruction.

Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!

I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!

I chose Matt because he does drum lessons via Skype. That way I can use my own drum kit in my own house, and I don't have to travel. It is great! Matt is an excellent teacher who doesn't make you feel like an idiot. He is very patient, and professional. He is also a WORKING drummer himself. I like the fact he plays out and is not some old guy with a beat up drum kit who hasn't been on stage in years. I've tried other drum instructors and Matt is the best. Other instructors always want you to open the book and learn to read music right away. Matt is different, he actually listens to you, and asks you want you want to learn. Most of our lessons are spent learning cool fills and rudiments which help with speed and timing. I really like the fact Matt shows me things I can use at my next gig. Things I can apply right away which make me a better drummer. Bottom line, Matt is really cool and I recommend him for any age, and any skill level. Dan - Hemet, California

Matthew is very knowledgeable an knows how to bring the information down to my level, very basic, step by step, which is exactly what I needed. He also challenges me to go beyond what I think I am capable of and I surprise myself. I am excited about my progress and can't wait to see what the year holds. I would highly recommend Matthew for beginning to advanced guitar. Thank You, Matthew

Music lessons with Steve

My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.

My son started taking piano lessons from Kelly a year and half ago. Since then, he has blossomed. We'd tried a franchise center before discovering Kelly but quickly discovered that a minimum of piano playing is actually done there. At 7, he needed the basics first and she made it so easy and fun for him. Now 9, he took and passed the ABRSMs at Cal State LA last fall, becoming one of the youngest to do so out of 600 students. Recitals are offered twice a year, allowing kids to present their work to an audience. The kids enjoy playing, thanks to her patience, passion and persistence. We highly recommend Kelly Pedroza and Elite Musique.

Cliff makes learning so much fun! He breaks it down so it really seems easy. I love his motto - he doesn't call it practicing he calls it playing. Also he is the only teacher I know of that plays along with you - he plays different riffs while you are learning the chords etc., so it makes it feels like you are having a jam session while you are learning! I highly recommend taking lessons with Cliff.

My son began taking drum lessons with Lindsay via skype at 6 years old. He will be 9 next month and is still loving his drum lessons. He has learned so much in such a short period of time. Not only is Lindsay clearly a skilled drummer but is also an apt teacher. She is patient while pushing my son to improve his skills. I know from personal experience that learning an instrument can be frustrating to the point that the student will want to give up. This is especially true for a kid. Lindsay understands this and has the ability to balance progress with patience. I highly recommend Lindsay as a drum teacher!
