I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.
I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didnt know a good teacher so I asked around. Howards name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howards approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, Im stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howards influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. Im confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.
For my 60th birthday, I decided that I would finally learn to play the saxophone, forty years after I gave up the clarinet. I have been taking weekly saxophone lessons from Fay for about nine months now, and will continue to do so. Fay is a very patient and encouraging teacher. She has taught me some music theory that I had never learned before, as well as the mechanics of playing the tenor sax. In addition, she is a talented improviser, and her love of music is always apparent. Lessons consist of a nice blend of scales and exercises, along with some very satisfying pieces of jazz and classical music. I recommend Fay without hesitation or reservation.
Both of my children have been taking lessons with Rachel for the past 3 years and she's been awesome! My daughter takes singing lessons and my son has been taking saxophone lessons, and they both love it! She's really professional and fun to work with. It's also been nice that she teaches a lot of instruments so we can have one teacher come to the house to teach both of the kids one after the other. I couldn't recommend her enough!
My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++
Garrett is great! I used to play clarinet in elementary and middle school, so I was definitely a bit rusty. Now, 22, working full time, I wanted to pick it back up, and Garrett was very patient in helping me get reacclimated to the instrument. Not only, did I sound better than I did growing up, but Garrett made playing the clarinet fun and exciting. He's very flexible and will work with your schedule. You won't regret it, he's a great teacher!
Just what I was looking for in a jazz piano teacher! He listened to my goals and is crafting a teaching strategy to make me a better musician while enjoying the process. Looking forward to more piano lessons in the future. He also teaches saxophone.
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.
Dara is one of the best teachers you can get out there. His methodology and expertise at the saxophone is second to none. He taught me for many years and set the foundation for the player I am today.
Ruth is wonderful. Very kind and professional. We are so happy we found her when we moved here. My daughter (10) thoroughly enjoys her flute lessons, and she has improved so much faster than with her two previous teachers. I cannot recommend Ruth highly enough!
I Music is a superior musical instruction academy. Minho was professional and accommodating and her instructors are top of the line- amazing with my 7yr old daughter for violin lessons.
Sierra has a lot of helpful tips on breathing that I haven't heard elsewhere. She is adapting the lessons to meet my exact needs. I highly recommend her!
I had my first lesson with Tim and it was more than I could have imagined. He has a calm way about his teaching that makes me anticipate our next session. I am so glad that Tim offered to be my instructor. - Bishop Christopher F. Bays, Sr.
She was experienced, efficient and her communication with kids was outstanding, her method of teaching was so comprehendible. When we start we didn't know anything about the piano and playing it but now only thing is left practice practice to get better. Tnx
Mr. Graf was my very first music teacher. Amazing man. He encouraged me to explore multiple instruments, and made learning to play, read, and make music exciting and fun. I will never forget his passion, energy, and his awesome hair

I have been playing the flute for 13 years. I'm a flute student at Long Beach City College studying music performance. I have attended the Berklee College of Music, and I intend to transfer to a private conservatory. I love passing on my knowledge of the flute. I teach beginning to intermediate flute (I can also teach intermediate/advanced flutists). All ages are welcomed.
