Neil has been awesome and I have learned so much since I started taking drum lessons with Neil about a year ago. I had been a recreational drummer for many years but was lacking guidance to take my drumming to the next level. Neil has a great program that focuses on reading music, playing rudiments and learning various drum beats for rock, funk and more. Neil also play bass, which has been a great accompaniment for practice sessions. In addition, Neil has given me great insights into practicing better with my band, tips for playing live and how to become a better musician in general. Very highly recommended!!
Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.
I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
I love going to voice/piano lessons every week! Sarah has taught me so much in the couple months i've been with her - i have a much stronger and overall better voice than before i started lessons. It's also very fun just in general to go every week:)
Over the years I have received instruction from Donna through piano lessons and participation in various choirs she has conducted. I am impressed with her knowledge, expertise, kindness, and patience. I am especially thankful for the way I have been instructed to sing so that I do not harm my voice....and in the piano instruction that includes education in the instrument - its history and how it works - and arm and hand technique when playing.
I am an adult beginning piano student of Juan's. I couldn't be more pleased. Juan always begins a lesson by asking if I have any questions and listening to me play. He then decides what we should work on. The focus is usually on the process of learning a piece. For example, together we figure out fingering that feels best for my hands. Its fun as problem solving. Juan chooses music well suited for his teaching approach. And the music itself is very enjoyable to play.
If you are looking for an excellent vocal coach, look no further! I have had voice lesson since I was 11 years old and had quite a few teachers in my life, but Ann is by far the best I have ever had. I was trained as a classical singer and now switching over to contemporary music. This is quite a challenge. I am so happy I found her because she is the first one who is actually able to help me with that mission. Ann is not only an incredible teacher, she is also one of the most wonderful people I've met in my life. She has high energy, is patient, always encouraging and wants you to be the best singer you can be. I can honestly say she is a blessing!
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
Liz is an amazing music teacher and person. I started taking lessons with her when I started flute in the 5th grade and kept taking lessons wih her through the end of high school. The only reason I stopped was because I moved away to college. Liz is a true musician. She knows music and she knows how to teach. I was always impressed wih Liz's ability to make very complex music reachable. What I love so much about Liz is that she makes music personal. She asked what I was interested in and made sure that I got to learn the type of flute because that is what I was interested in. This is in contrast to some other music teachers I had when I played other instruments earlier in my life. I remember sometimes I would be tired from school or sports practice earlier, or maybe I had had a rough day, and would not want to go to my lesson. Of course I would go and not once did I regret it. I ALWAYS left lessons happy. Liz made music and lessons fun. She is truly invested in her students. She builds relationships with them. I graduated from college and a teacher myself now and I still talk to Liz to catch up because we are more than just student-teacher we are friends. I still think of Liz when I hear Christmas music or Flight of the Bumblebee.
Ilana has been a great teacher and working with her over the past few months I've been able to refresh most of my playing abilities after a 12-year hiatus (plus learn to play new musical styles and music theory concepts as well). She is very patient, flexible and pushes you to continue improving your playing without making it a stressful experience. I highly recommend Ilana if you are looking to get back into playing violin or are a first-time student!
I can't say enough good things about working with Patricia. She is always on time, always professional, incredibly knowledegeable, and always ready for our lessons. I have grown tremendously since I started working with her! I've actually started taking both voice and piano lessons from her because she is that good. She is classically trained and knows her stuff so well and can explain it so well that even a 5 year old could understand it.
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!
Art has been working with my 7 year old son on the drums for a few months now and has been a great teacher. He's very patient and able to keep his attention and make learning fun. He helps him focus during lessons and makes the lessons fun. I highly recommend him!
André is a WONDERFUL teacher. I started with him last month as an absolute beginner (at the age of 44!), and he's done an excellent job of helping me start to get my feet under me on the drum set. His teaching style is very flexible and adaptive, which is a great match for me as an adult beginner with mild age-related mobility issues. He's committed to teaching the basics, but he's equally committed to the idea that the goal -- the thing that's really going to motivate students -- is to learn to play music. I can't wait to get my own drums at home so I can practice enough to really do his lessons justice! André has infectious enthusiasm for the drums and for music in general. I'm lucky to have found him to be my teacher.
My son and his classmate took saxophone lessons with Andrew to be ready for Fall Band in 5th grade. He is straight forward and they learned fast from him. I highly recommend him.
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.
Chris has been awesome! I've been working with him for around six months and he's been really great. He has a ton of performance experience and that really comes through in how he references performances and recommends improvements. He's solid on theory and has a great knowledge of music to suggest songs. Highly recommend!
Before I came to Mark I had studied with four singing teachers in my ten years of classical and musical theatre training. I was a music scholar at high school in London and received free vocal tuition from well established singers. However, I had stopped developing because I lacked the foundation of a good technique. I had been told so many contrasting ideas as to how to breathe, support from the diaphragm, and approach high pitches that I did not know how best to progress.. When I arrived in San Francisco I found Mark, and was charmed by his distinctive studio, filled with photos of past performances and family. He immediately appeared to me an honest, and intelligent teacher. He explained to me that his method was very technical and was grounded in an understanding of the physicality of singing - which muscles are being used, how to raise the tongue for maximum acoustics. I having been learning with Mark for almost 8 months and every lesson I think, 'this man has got to be a genius'. His teaching is EXCELLENT. Although it is very different to what singers may be used to, he systematically combs through all you need to know in order to build a strong voice in any style of singing. I have extended my range, developed a warmer, fuller tone, and found that I can make operatic resonance. He is an EMPOWERING teacher, acutely aware of your perspective, and constantly speaking your 'language' so that you may develop. Not only have I found him to be an inspiring teacher, but also a friend and in some cases a life mentor. I feel I have found my singing teacher, and hope to work with him regardless of where I am in the world. Kayla
Joe is a great teacher and a wonderful mentor. I have taken lessons from him since 2014 and he has taught me many lessons about drumming but also lessons about life and how to become a better musician. He is very kind and willing to help you in any way he can. If you are searching to start drumset for the very first time or you are looking to fine-tune your skills, he is the person to go to. Each lesson I learn something new and they can be structured around something I need to improve on or something brand new that I would like to learn. I truly believe that he is THE BEST drum teacher I have ever had.
I am manny and he was drum teacher and my advisory and he’s good got great timing , good rythym and has many great teaching lessons that won’t make you forget of those 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.
