3 lessons already and singing has been much more fun! She is positive, honest, personal, knowledgeable, and a great resource! She's taught me to sing more naturally and how to perform and I'm glad I have the opportunity to learn from her! She certainly has a knack for developing this beautiful art in her clients! Thanks Jan!
Stephanie is a very patient and pleasant teacher. My son now looks forward to his piano lessons and is actually enjoying them. She is a great choice if you are looking for someone who makes teaching fun.
Great Teacher! His playing demonstrates a profound knowledge of his instrument. Whether hes teaching you new techniques, chords and inversions, different styles of playing, or the basics of music theory, the lessons are presented in a way tangible to the student. He is better than any guitar player I've seen, so he can take you to the next level if you are already good, or he can help you as a beginner like me.
I have been taking guitar lessons with Paul for about two months now and I feel like I have learned so much already! I am very impressed with his knowledge on music theory and his easy demeanor makes me feel comfortable as I scrape through the chords. He also transposes songs that you request, so you can start learning through those songs instead of just chord progressions. While, also, teaching you how to read the music. I am really proud of my progress and it all has to do with his dedication to me, can't wait to see where I go from here with his guidance! I wholeheartedly recommend him if you are looking to start/get back into guitar.
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.
Thomas has an excellent grasp of music theory and teaches very well.
We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.
I have been a student of Kim's for the past 4 years. I have had and am still having a wonderful experience. She is a very skilled guitar player and instructor. Her teaching studio is a comfortable and private area, and in addition she has a recording studio separate from her regular teaching studio. The recording studio is where her students get to meet and team up with other musicians and learn the process of playing together and making recordings. This experience at playing as a group with a drummer and other musicians has been invaluable training. Especially if one wishes to go professional. Kim has an extremely sound knowledge of music theory and a way of teaching that varies depending on her students. I would highly recommend Kim as a teacher for all levels of musicians that need additional skill to add to their current knowledge.
Mark is an excellent piano teacher! He also importantly has an extensive knowledge of music theory and history. He incorporates these important aspects of music appreciation into lessons that he tailors for individual students. His lessons are very well organized and goal-oriented. I definitely recommend him!
After more than 30 years of my not playing, Charlyn works on theory and music playing. I play weekly and already in a few months have the impression my playing picked up where I left it. Charlyn is an outstanding teacher, especially for my elder age. She is positive and enthusiastic and at no matter what age or level, any student of her's will progress. I have enjoyed emensly our time together and continue to do so.
Love David! He was my first electric bass teacher, I started taking lessons from him when I was about 15. He's very practical and casual, you know he's not gonna make you play scales up and down with a metronome for the entire lesson. A more typical lesson would be David showing you how to apply a certain mode, or pattern to a particular tune or situation. Then he'll turn on the drum machine and you'll take turns soloing and holding down the groove. He's very inspiring as a teacher, partially because he's such a good bass player and also because he treats his students like serious musicians. After learning from David for a few months I really started to get into music and began practicing rigorously. Great guy and great teacher! Highly recommended!
Howard Richman is not a piano teacher...he is a LIFE CHANGER. I went to him to learn piano...but realized that the lessons I learned studying piano with the MASTER were not merely lessons in music....but lessons that helped me see outside the paradigm in all areas of my life. Often, as adults, we "come back" to our music...to study what we have been "wanting to get back to" for years. I learned that this is often a time of great change and evolution for us personally. Howard, being so intuitive, knows how to tune in to each individual's needs.... and empower them to EMPOWER themselves. He is a BRILLIANT pianist, composer and master teacher. I've watched him perform miracles with young children who struggled with other teachers who simply wanted to teach "by the book." Howard is always able to find your inner talent and abilities, possibly that are even unknown to you...and he can creatively, intuitively and intelligently create a course of action that will leave you amazed! That's why you are reading SO many wonderful comments here about him. If you are lucky enough to get to study with Howard, it will change your life!...and btw, I can now play a mean Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"....Thank you for everything you taught me Howard Richman!

I'm a songwriter/composer and first came to Kevin to learn how to sight read and improve my technique. After only a handful of lessons, I was learning music theory, composition techniques, and reading notation. With some hard work and determination, I quickly noticed an improvement in my playing, writing, and ability to read music. Within a couple months I had built a playable repertoire. After 6 months, I was working on material that had once seemed impossible to learn. His teaching methods strengthened my confidence as a musician, while also encouraged my appetite for learning. Kevin is both patient and passionate about teaching. His clear, straight forward way of communicating made it easier to grasp complex musical concepts. He is also a passionate, hard working musician, and beyond excellent pianist. Any aspiring musician could benefit from his wisdom and teaching. This review can't fully capture my gratitude for having Kevin as a teacher and musical mentor.
The only two hiring have been great, the current one is awesome, Marie seems very cooperative and genuine. My daughter love's her. And now from wanting first, singing lessons, also wants to learn the piano as well
Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
Cody was very prompt in his response and made himself available so my son could take lessons. He was very polite and patient with my son. We look forward to seeing our son's progress with Cody's instructor.
Joey is a fantastic and understanding teacher. He had me singing in a way I didn't realize was possible. I also am taking piano lessons from him, and Joey understands my goals and style. A+
We miss Davie. Great piano and drum teacher. Enthusiastic and fun. Your child will love lessons with Davie.
Lucas is an extremely talented teacher and musician!! He is friendly and patient. He is very accommodating to my learning style and my taste in music. I am a complete beginner, but he has helped me quickly and easily learn songs that I like. His lessons are fun and I feel myself getting better each week.
I had already been messing around on the guitar for a while, but decided to finally take the plunge and start taking bass lessons here in LA. Simply put, there is nothing that Roman can't do or teach on the bass guitar. Roman formulated a lesson plan centered around my own experience and goals as a musician, which increased my understanding of music as much as my ability to play. In taking music lessons from Roman, you not only get an incredibly knowledgable and experienced instructor, but you also get a funny, laid-back guy who is willing to jam along and offer insight into any musical piece you put in front of him. Roman is truly the total package, and I can't imagine taking music lessons from anyone else.
Ryan Rowles is an experienced and engaging music teacher. Very warm, personable, and talented. I would highly recommend him for students of all ages!
