Mr. Lamb is great teacher. He is currently teaching my child and my child is picking up piano fingering and technique fast. I think Mr. Lamb is very talented and knows how to instruct in music theory and piano technique. He is very friendly and easy person to talk to, flexible and understanding of the needs of my child, and accommodates us most graciously when we have to reschedule. I highly recommend Mr. Lamb for Piano lessons.
Note: This is only based on 1 interaction. Mindy taught my daughter's lesson for 1/2 hour. My daughter needed help with a school piece. Mindy patiently explained musical terms my daughter was unfamiliar with. Mindy asked my daughter questions that made her think. Mindy made sure my daughter was relaxed even when she made mistakes or couldn't answer a question. My daughter seemed to connect well with Mindy by the end of this first lesson. I was thrilled the lesson was 30 minutes (and maybe a couple minutes more) as previous teachers have cut short the lesson time. I liked the room where the lesson was taught because it was large (we're use to cramped studios) and had a lot of air circulation. The location is close enough that I don't have to use the freeway. I really liked the fact that there wasn't another student when we arrived and there wasn't a student when we left. It was really distracting at previous lessons with other teachers when students left their lessons late causing our lesson to start late and students arriving before our lesson was finished. I look forward to seeing my daughter's improvement until Mindy's guidance.
Andi is am amazing person and a very patient teacher. I have been a student with Andi for about a year and can not find any more reasons to hit the class, he has helped me not just with the lessons, but loaning an instrument when I did not have, also extending help to chose an outstanding equipment, repair it. All my classes, lessons, sheets all are sent by him the next day of my classes, he monitors, takes initiative and hardly forgets a thing from the class. Very patient, down to earth teacher and his skills are just amazing. He helped me set my goals as per my preference and work towards them. His USP is his knowledge to theory as well as his skills on the board, amazing teacher to learn a new skill, very patient and accommodating - I travel 30 miles to take classes and every bit of it has been worth, for a newbie to music he has made me so comfortable with the instrument.
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 is an enthusiastic teacher! He is willing to spend over time with my kids and makes them engaged. My kids always look forward for his lessons. He also provides my little four year old daughter and myself free lessons! We like him a lot and highly recommend him!
I have taken lessons from David Williams for about 6 years and i feel strongly like i learned something from every lesson. David didn't only help me with guitar playing, but he became my songwriting mentor. I have played with a few bands now and am fully capable of holding my own on stage, but i wouldn't be where i am today without the knowledge i obtained from David. Also, hes one of the most kind and genuine people I've ever met.
I've been taking lessons with Sara for about 3 or 4 months and she is so great! She has such a friendly personality and made me feel comfortable since our first lesson. She really knows how to explain things in ways that you understand best so that you can grow and improve without ever feeling criticized or judged. She's a great teacher and our lessons are super fun and have helped my voice so much!
Donna is a true professional and I have really felt an improvement. Shame I got too busy and couldn't continue my lessons.
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.
I start took lessons from Anna few months ago. And I can say she is very professional teacher, I feel it from first lesson. She can explain everything about singing and she knows how to teach in a right way, don't damage your voice. I can recommend her to everyone who start to sing or even professional singers improve their skills.
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.
Dylan is a great teacher. He is very patient, and very interested in meeting his student's needs. In my case, I was most interested in improving my songwriting skills, and Dylan is helping me by giving me great feedback on my efforts, suggesting new riffs and embellishments, and working on my guitar technique and music theory understanding. He is a fountain of knowledge and someone you can take lessons with for a long time.
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!
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!
Marla is a wonderful teacher. I was looking for someone who specializes in classical vocal training and she was perfect. I've had 4 lessons so far and am learning a lot about the mechanics of proper diaphragm usage, placements in order to produce the ideal sound. One thing to remember about learning any instrument (and yes, your voice is an instrument!) is that you won't master it overnight or even over the course of a couple of months. It takes time, practice, and perseverance. So far Marla has been an excellent teacher and I look forward to continue working with her.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Patricia and felt like I have grown exponentially since I started taking vocal lessons with her.
My daughter recently started doing piano lessons with Lynn and she just loves it. She loves Lynn and thinks she is so nice. I sat in on her first session and I learned so much just from watching in the background. Lynn is an outstanding piano teacher and I recommend her for anyone interested in piano or voice lessons.
Ashten was great! Super fun to work with and really encouraging! Thanks Ashten!!!
Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
Ryan is an excellent teacher. He makes our son’s lessons interesting and relevant. He’s also an excellent communicator — both with parents and students. Our son looks forward to his lesson every week.
