My experience with Mr. Lamb has been fantastic. He is very patient and works extremely well with my child. My son went from not really caring about piano lessons to now really enjoying his lessons. I feel that Mr. Lamb is very thorough, yet makes the lessons fun.

I am an adult beginner and have enjoyed my piano lessons with Stella. She is friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. She offers a good balance between technique exercises and learning to play music. And, she doesn't let you give up!

Juan Carlos is such a great teacher. He is helping my son learn piano and teaching him how to use his voice properly. He is patient, kind, and clear when teaching my 12 year old who is not very confident yet with his singing. My son is learning how to listen and match pitch. Juan Carlos always finds a teaching approach to help my son understand what to do. I definitely recommend Juan Carlos! Melanie Hernandez

I recently hired Toby for lessons in composition and to help me gain more agility and greater finger dexterity. I played piano for 5 years as a child, but stopped in high school because I became too busy. I also wanted to start writing my own music. I have lyrics, but I don't know how to put them to music. Toby has been working with my daughter who started piano lessons 3 years ago. My daughter had some interest in playing, but had a hard time getting motivated to practice. Toby got her back on track and excited about practicing. She is unique in allowing her intermediate students to play with her band which plays originals, including her own which are a mix of classical and rock. Toby has had an amazing influence on my daughter who went from not knowing how to play to playing intermediate pieces with a wonderful tone, dynamics, and dexterity. She is currently working on a some Chopin (Toby is most skilled in the Romantic era pieces such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff) and the Mozart Turkish March sonata. My daughter has also learned how to write songs and compose music to match them. Toby studied at Berklee which is well-known as the premier school for songwriting and composition, and it shows in her teaching. I am so excited to have an opportunity to work with her. She is a fantastic teacher and her original music is gorgeous and inspirational.

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

Sedat is an excellent teacher for my 10 year old. He has lots of patience and knows how to teach kids. He is able to help with easier ways to teach chords and makes the class enjoyable. My child loves his class and he encourages to pick their favorite songs to play. I would highly recommend Sedat for kids guitar lessons.

Brian J.
Verified review

I'm an intermediate level drummer who was seeking lessons to help bring my playing to the next level and I found Brian Fruechtenicht here on thumbtack. I have to say, having taken drum lessons before that this experience has been unlike any other. Brian's novel approach may seem unorthodox if you come into lessons with any preconceived notion of what drum lessons should be like, however his unique take on them (not to mention his enthusiasm) really conveys a lot of the practical knowledge that helps change good drummers into great drummers. In my own drumming, I feel like my style had become rote, but Brian helped me find more creativity behind the kit. I play for a band and I have to say even that sounds leagues better since beginning lessons with Brian Fruechtenicht, and those lessons tend to be some of the most fun I have all week. Brian Fruechtenicht gets a high recommendation from me!

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

Joann taught me piano lessons for over three years, and she worked on and off with my children for over a year. I started as a beginner, and she was instrumental in teaching me everything I know about piano. She was always on time, focused, and knowlegable. Joann works really well with children as well. She is positive and encouraging. She has fun and creative ways to engage the kids.

I've been learning piano under Rebecca's guidance for 2 years now, and she's an incredible teacher. She's very friendly, and has made learning piano a very fun experience, even going out of her way to find music that I particularly enjoy learning while still providing a sufficient challenge. I've come to look forward to every lesson I have with her, and couldn't recommend her more.

Verified review

Karin Swanson is a specially intelligent, energetic individual and gifted musician. She excels as a pianist and is an exceptional composer with a passion to teach others. As a former student of mine in the very difficult Comprehensive Musicianship class (musicianship integrated with theory) at San Jose State University, she was among the very top of her class. And her private composition lessons with me demonstrated her superb creative intuition and command of craft. Without reservation I recommended her very highly as a piano and composition instructor.

I have been taking piano lessons with Jeffrey for the past year. Although I started taking lessons when I was young and have studied under other great teachers, Jeffrey stands out among them as exceptionally gifted. He is eternally patient and has a great sense of humor. I always look forward to seeing him. Besides his affability, the depth and breadth of his musical knowledge are hard to find, even among professionals. I would recommend him to anyone, regardless of age or proficiency.

Verified review

Eteri was my teacher for 10 wonderful, amazing years! She introduced me to piano from the basics at the age of 8, and I fell in love with playing piano ever since then. Not only does she build a strong musical foundation for her students, but also she will truly inspire you to reach your full potential in terms of technical abilities and performance. She's great at encouraging students from the youngest age with games, stickers, prizes - which is so important when children have a short attention span. As I got older, I truly came to love music and piano thanks to Eteri's own love for music and the great satisfaction I got from mastering pieces that were more and more challenging. I am so thankful to Eteri for encouraging me every step of the way with her guiding words and dedicated attitude. She truly gave me a gift that will last a lifetime!

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.

I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!
