The session went well. It was an adequate length of time for the information delivered. If you are a medical professional like myself and need to renew your licenses this is the perfect refresh course. Even if you are new and this is your first time learning this information the instructor is informative and lively enough to keep one's interest and teach. I recommend this course for all civilians learning CPR and professionals renewing licenses.

Paul Grether is a very talented musician and teacher and a great person. He is wonderful with kids. He is sweet, smart, motivational, caring and funny. My 9 year old son loves him and loves his guitar lessons. He gave up tennis to have two guitar lessons a week. Paul is so affordable to top it off that we are able to afford two one hour lessons a week. I am thrilled to pieces. Anyone would be lucky to have guitar lessons with Paul.

Bought three months worth of bass lessons for my husband on his birthday, and he loves his new instructor! Paul is great and patient. My husband had his first lesson, and he already knows he will learn a lot from Paul. Thank you, Paul! He's one happy man...that makes me his one happy wife!

Joyee is one of the most hard working and supporting people I have ever met period, nonetheless a tutor. He rapidly increased my SAT scores, and he helped me through AP Calculus when it was borderline impossible for me. He also helped me in AP statistics in which I would set the curves on tests because of him. He would also tutor me after hours if I needed it late into the night even if he had other things to do, and even though for a time I was lazy and didn't do my assignments he still believed in me, and I eventually turned it around. He is a HUGE reason I got into college and I wouldn't have been able to do it without him. Also, it doesn't hurt that he knows everything. There really isn't an area of high school academics he doesn't know. He's the epitome of an expert. He also can find plenty of practice material for you and he really does tutor you to your style If you're having second thoughts about his work ethic, intellect, or teaching ability, don't. He is by far the best tutor I've ever had and I doubt that will change. Jay, NYU class of 2021

Thinque Prep was an amazing asset to my family and I. This was my first child and I was extremely confused with the all the rules and requirements that colleges have these days. I met with Joyee and he helped clarify everything. He walked me through a timeline for testing, course selection. He help set up my son for a proper testing schedule. We talked through colleges in depth. He connected me with a world class research opportunity for my son. He also hosted a essay workshop over the summer where he invited actual college representatives to work with the students. They read through his essays and gave him constructive criticism. I can't thank him enough for all his help, and we will be continuing to use his services -- in both test preparation and college guidance -- for all my children.

For more than two years I have taken piano lessons from Esther Sanborn and I can say that I am quite pleased with my growth and progress. Let me preface this by saying that I am an older adult and have over the years developed bad habits in my technique. Ms Sanborn helped me correct these with her unending patience and insight. I love her insistence on good technique, ensuring that her students become better players. She is very respectful of my personal taste in the classical music that I choose to play, and has always been very encouraging whenever I express doubt about my abilities. Esther Sanborn is a true professional who knows music, and her love of the piano is palpable. It makes each lesson a joy.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Esther for more than two years. During this time, I have witnessed her fine qualities as a teacher. Ms. Esther is enthusiastic and passionate about music. She has imparted her love of music onto my daughter. Ms. Esther has always treated my daughter as an individual and customized her lessons according to her need. When my daughter performs well, Ms. Esther acknowledges her accomplishment. When my daughter struggles with a lesson, Ms. Esther encourages with positive and caring words. I highly respect Ms. Esther's natural gift for teaching.

My daughter has been going to miss Esther practice for a little bit more than a year. Miss Esther is very good with kids, patient, and can keep my daughter focused for 45mn, which is pretty hard ! She has improved dramatically faster than what she did previously in a more "normal" setting. My daughter always enjoys her lessons. And, my husband also appreciates her flexible schedule !

My granddaughter Emily wanted to take singing lessons and also learn how to play the piano. I'm so glad that we found Sharon Winer. She is an amazing teacher and my granddaughter is already singing much better and has learned to play quite a few songs on the piano. I couldn't imagine a better teacher and I would recommend her highly to anyone who is looking for a voice or piano teacher. My name is Emily and I wanted to learn how to play the piano and sing better. My grandmother found Sharon Winer and I am so glad she did. Sharon is the best singing and piano teacher ever I have learned so many songs on the piano from her and my singing has gotten way better. I love taking lessons with Sharon she's an amazing music teacher.

I am a retired high school teacher and have decided to take up the piano. I had my first lesson with Sharon. She is an excellent teacher! She is very patient and very enthusiastic! Both of which I am very grateful for, as I am a slow learner! Needless to say, she is extremely knowledgable about music, piano and theory. I would very highly recommend her for all levels of piano study for either the adult or child learner! I look forward to many more lessons with her!

I was a bit nervous at first about getting a vocal coach but Cosima made me feel comfortable right away. She does an amazing job in teaching and if I have any question she answers them right away. There’s no pressure or judgement by her part, if anything I feel encouraged to get out of my comfort zone each time and I’m looking forward to the classes I have yet to take with her. I definitely recommend Cosima!

I’ve been taking weekly lessons from Kim for four years. What a great instructor! I look forward to each lesson. Before my very first lesson, Kim met me at Guitar Center to pick out the equipment I needed to get started - who does that anymore? Kim truly cares about her students and the music - there’s no comparison to any music academy mill. When I first started taking lessons, I also tried a couple other instructors and Kim is by far the best most, knowledgeable instructor I found. I couldn’t believe Oscar gave her one star …what a joke! This guy never even took one lesson from her or saw the inside of the studio where she gives lessons and talks trash about her?? You couldn’t ask for a better instructor or location. I would recommend Kim to anybody without hesitation. I drive two hours for my one-hour class every week, and would drive further if needed. Totally worth the one-on-one personal treatment Kim provides.

I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.

We found Ms. Allison via Thumbtack and consider ourselves lucky. She is a patient and caring instructor. My 11 year old daughter loves her lessons. We started with her while we lived in Pasadena and have since moved but continue to drive over 40 miles to her home studio for lessons on Saturday for the past year. She is a talented musician and more importantly she is able to share her knowledge with our daughter.

Both Van and Sean provide a phenomenal education for people who want to learn singing. They guided my kids over the years to learn how to sing, perform and ultimately use their own natural voice in a healthy and efficient way. They provide performing opportunities and have great connections with people in the industry and in New York City. My kids enjoy each lesson and always ask when they can go back for their next lesson.

My first lesson blew me away with how much I learned in an hour. That is why I am still with VS Music Studios and trusting them with my career. The best vocal instruction I have ever had and I use to pay over $300/hour for different instructor in NYC. I feel confident and comfortable in my voice and I'm not straining for those high notes anymore.

The best voice lessons I have ever experienced! I have worked with other singing teachers before, but Van and Sean have transformed the way I sing and my voice has never felt so free. I'm able to sing higher and lower than before and I can sing songs that were very difficult now with ease. I love it! Thanks Van and Sean!

As a native speaker, Nuria brings a perspective to learning Spanish that one can hardly get anywhere else.

After a year with Nuria I can heartily recommend her without reservation.

"It's Music Time" is a great way for kids to get acquainted with music and gain an early foundation of music concepts. I loved having my kids participate in the classes.

My son has been taking piano lessons from Ms. Kaiser (he's more formal with her -- I believe everyone else calls her by her first name) for six months. He absolutely LOVES it. I took several years of lessons (played throughout high school and college) and generally play for fun, so I am not clueless when it comes to music. I am also a teacher (just not a music teacher). I find that Marguerite is amazing at her craft -- both playing and teaching. She is very in tune to young students and knows when they are tired with one activity. She quickly moves on to something else! I love this approach. Additionally, she does not teach JUST piano. Students learn singing, rhythm through percussion, note reading, AND piano. I was not taught this way, though I really wish I was! Additionally, she teaches the students perfect pitch from day one. She truly is a special gem of a teacher. My son loves her dearly and we are thankful to have such a great teacher in our lives. He is now on to composing his own tunes. I am amazed with him and thankful we have such a great teacher to nurture his musical creativity. You won't regret hiring Marguerite!

Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.

I’ve never been more challenged vocally in my entire life until I began lessons with Lance. I came in with so much fear and now, after a few lessons, I’ve developed significantly better singing habits than ever before (and that’s with four years of choir experience already under my belt!). Additionally, Lance is a complete sweetheart that believes in the success of your voice’s capabilites, even when you don’t believe it yourself! My reccomendation is to come into his lessons ready to play and learn! Don’t be fearful! (I’m still working on it!) All in all, I can see myself progressing as a vocalist as I continue my lessons with Lance! So, if you are in need of an easy going vocal coach who can equally inspire, and challenge you, then look into Lance Smith!! You won’t regret it!
