My experience with Mr. Lamb has been fantastic. He is very patient and works extremely well with my child. My son went from not really caring about piano lessons to now really enjoying his lessons. I feel that Mr. Lamb is very thorough, yet makes the lessons fun.

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.

Juan Carlos is such a great teacher. He is helping my son learn piano and teaching him how to use his voice properly. He is patient, kind, and clear when teaching my 12 year old who is not very confident yet with his singing. My son is learning how to listen and match pitch. Juan Carlos always finds a teaching approach to help my son understand what to do. I definitely recommend Juan Carlos! Melanie Hernandez

I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol

Both of our kids ( 12 and 10 ) are having a nice time with Lynn while learning their drills. She connects with them individually and helps them learn their drills in a smooth way. Our daughter loves her voice and piano lessons. On the other hand, our son did not want to take piano lessons at all but after a few lessons with Lynn, he decided to stay with it! How great is that! Thank you so much Lynn!!! :-) I am happy and looking forward to seeing more of their progress!

Brian J.
Verified review

I'm an intermediate level drummer who was seeking lessons to help bring my playing to the next level and I found Brian Fruechtenicht here on thumbtack. I have to say, having taken drum lessons before that this experience has been unlike any other. Brian's novel approach may seem unorthodox if you come into lessons with any preconceived notion of what drum lessons should be like, however his unique take on them (not to mention his enthusiasm) really conveys a lot of the practical knowledge that helps change good drummers into great drummers. In my own drumming, I feel like my style had become rote, but Brian helped me find more creativity behind the kit. I play for a band and I have to say even that sounds leagues better since beginning lessons with Brian Fruechtenicht, and those lessons tend to be some of the most fun I have all week. Brian Fruechtenicht gets a high recommendation from me!

Verified review

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

Rebecca is a passionate and amazing person. She is very knowledgeable about music and works to help her students develop their skills while finding ways to help them enjoy music. She works with your pace and allows you to play the way you like to play. I have learned under Rebecca for almost 2 years and it has been great. She was able to help me learn pieces in which it would take me a while to learn. I learned a lot of the fundamentals and also technique including scales, arpeggios, and how to transition between octaves. I was able to play a wide variety of music from classical to movie soundtracks, modern, and even music from games! I had a wonderful time learning piano from her and her cheerful and upbeat attitude has kept me going in learning piano. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn piano!!!

We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.

Ángel Has been reaching both of my sons Michael and Daniel since they were 7 years old. They are 10 and 12 now and We all love Angel. They both look forward to their lesson weekly, Angel encourage them in such a way that I don’t even hVe to ask them to study or practice they want to be ready for their lesson. Angel, speaks Spanish and since my kids are learning the language, he teaches their lesson in Spanish, which for us is a plus because it helps them practice the language while learning piano.

I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!
