great professional service very responsive and love kids enjoying Spanish lessons
Clifford made our event extra special and made my wife and guests very happy. He accompanied my wife on stage and even brought some extra musicians to the event which I thought was very generous of him. I would definitely recommend him for your event because he is simply stellar.
Mindy was so great with our son in helping him with his singing. Not having had any voice training, and having to sing a solo in a play, he was very anxious about taking voice lessons. After the first lesson he was very happy and thrilled with Mindy's approach to the voice training. She was patience, very insightful and gave him some great techniques to use to stay within his range and meet some notes that he had to hit. She even gave him pointers on how to combat stage fright. Our 14 year old son gives her 5 stars too and that's saying a lot. We would highly recommend Mindy for voice training!

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.
Kelly made the first lesson super fun and engaging for my boys. We will be continuing lessons with Kelly!
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.
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.
Sarah is so positive! Lessons are always a lot of fun, and she clearly knows her stuff. I'm very happy to have found her.
Donna Stoering has the rare gift of not only being a fantastic concert pianist who has traveled the world sharing her gift, but a gifted and highly effective teacher. I have my B.A. in piano and wanted advanced lessons after graduation. Donna listened for my strengths and found a way to both inspire and respect me as a student. She is amazing in how she helps her students with bench, shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand position using the body to create beautiful tones and create a musical story. When you learn a new piece from Donna, you'll understand the composer who wrote the piece and the mood he/she was trying to convey. She teaches her students how to join the composer, bringing their original thoughts and feelings into play as they perform. This brings a whole new life to practicing the piano. She is an expert in teaching technique and clarity. She is an expert in helping the student understand how to touch the keyboard in a distinctive manner for each style of music, i.e., French Impressionism has a different touch than Baroque. I am so grateful for having the privilege of taking lessons from Donna Stoering. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced performer, Donna is the teacher for you.
I've had two lessons with Ken so far, after returning from a 10 year hiatus from playing piano. He has been able to simplify aspects of piano playing that were previously unlearnable for me in just two hours! Ken is a passionate teacher, who makes learning fun. I'd happily recommend him to anyone wanting to learn piano and have fun doing it.
Fantastic player, even better teacher. Dylan can play any style and can teach as much music theory as you want, but also has no problem learning a song by ear and teaching it to you 5 minutes later. Want to learn a song note by note, while perfecting every technique used along the way? Yep, can do that too. Lessons are as intense or as relaxed as suits your style. Highly recommend.
Liz is the real deal. She was able to pick up on the needs of my daughter and focus on that. She didn't waste time on things already learned or trying to reteach or practice things already known. She makes the lesson count without making it onerous. She is a true professional willing to teach the serious student. She is also kind, motivating (without being condescending) and understanding. I appreciate her flexibility and adaptability in working with my teen daughter. Because of her my daughter is enjoying singing!
Lynn is great with my daughter, always patient with a naughty preschooler and her lessons are very helpful!
Learning from Ann was, simply put: GREAT. I felt like I finally found a vocal teacher who knew how to help me improve and then go on to teach me more as a singer. I had tried 3 other vocal teachers in my life, and 2 others in my current city. Upon finding Ann, I felt like I found someone who was serious, and someone who had serious knowledge about singing. She taught me proper technique and really helped me to improve where my singing faltered. She was always prepared and ready to teach me as soon as I arrived. When I found out she was leaving, I was upset and "bummed out", for lack of a better word. She is a great instructor and teacher, and I would absolutely take more lessons with her!
Liz has worked wonders with our 10 year old son and his guitar lessons. He loves guitar now and looks forward to each lesson and practicing in between. Liz makes learning fun and easy. She is also flexible with changing schedules and conveniently comes to our home so we don't have to travel. We are very happy we found her on a Thumbtack!
My son loves piano lessons with Laura!
I've been studying voice since I was 12 years old. I have been through a few different voice teachers in San Francisco and I feel so lucky to have finally found Patricia. Before Patricia I wasn't making progress that was satisfactory to me. Patricia seamlessly bridged my gaps in understanding and since working with her, I have progressed faster than I thought was possible. Patricia teaches a very effective technique for beautiful and healthy singing. When I began with her I wasn't confident with my musicality. Now, three years later, with her tools and training, I feel extremely confident as a singer and performer. Patricia's technique gives students freedom to express themselves through singing in ways that will not damage their instrument. I leave my lessons with Patricia each week feeling confident and understanding something new about my voice. Very often we have a breakthrough...something that never happened before! Added bonus, I love the location of her studio. So close to 24th street so I always leave time to grab a coffee before I come :)
I loved dealing with thumbtack. They found me a cello teacher very quickly. Amy is an experienced cellist and teacher who imparts her knowledge with grace. I am enjoying my lessons tremendously.
Met with Rafa for our first lesson the other day. Awesome experience, Rafa was engaging, friendly and well prepared. Rafa sent me homework prior to our first meeting so we could get started right away. Will continue my lessons!!
Francis is obviously quite knowledgeable about music and proper vocal technique. He will start you off breathing properly and singing in the relaxed, proper way, building a foundation of proper skills that will translate into any genre. He is fairly personable and has a plethora of methods to help coax out good sound. He is very encouraging an supportive and I'd highly reccomend him.
