I am so pleased with the service we received. In no time at all, my piano was back to perfect pitch, and ready to make beautiful music again!
I specifically selected Nader as my violin instructor because of his experience teaching adult beginners. I'm an absolute beginner with the violin and with reading music. I've been taking lessons for a month now and have made solid progress with both. Nader was the right choice for me and I look forward to working with him long term.
Jennifer is absolutely amazing. She has influenced my daughter through music in such a positive way. My daughter has become incredibly passionate about music and looks forward to her weekly lesson. She’s taken huge leaps in her skills and has grown tremendously because of Jennifer.
Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high. Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons. The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too. Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.
We had a couple of piano lessons. Mr. Crespo is very knowledgeable, friendly and easy going. He works well with children. Music lessons online offer the convenience of being at your own home without unnecessary travel time.
Really wide range of music knowledge and skills, and highly effective at teaching anything from the basics to super technical. Invests a lot in his students. Patient, fun, and flexible. One of the best teachers I’ve ever had, and that’s coming from 7 years experience with Academia.
I highly recommend US Music Lessons! My 14-year-old son has been with US Music Lessons for nearly a year as part of the Rock Band class. He is a drummer and has loved playing with other students in his band as they learn together the skills they need to be part of an actual rock band. They have played multiple times at local venues, including the Hard Rock Cafe, which has been an incredible experience for the kids. Although my son already was a drummer coming into US Music Lessons (Thanks to his grandfather), he has learned a great deal from the wonderful teachers that instruct the Rock Band. My son plays with kids every week who have been students of US Music Lessons learning various instruments, including voice lessons, and their experience has been positive. The kids coming out of US Music Lessons are all gifted and talented young musicians thanks to the wonderful teachers dedicated to their musical growth. The Rock Band class is an innovative, fun and inspiring way to teach music in that it develops a love and passion for performing and therefore a desire to improve on a daily basis. Playing with others that are like-minded and receiving the feedback in an actual performance class from the instructor has been an invaluable experience for my son.
When I started taking guitar lessons over 5 years ago, I thought it was just going to be a fun hobby. But now it's my passion. The way that RBSOM organizes this company is truly inspiring. From the lessons to the concerts, it's what makes everything for together. The teachers are amazing! They never have a bad thing to say and they really like to get to know each student on a friendship level. The concerts are also a great way to meet people just like you! You almost never have the same band for each song or concert. Age doesn't matter when you are have a great time laughing and playing some music.
My three daughters, all of varying natural ability, have had voice lessons over a 2 1/2 year period with Virginia Norwood, Norwood Music Studios. It has been amazing to watch my daughters improve in giant steps with both singing ability and self-confidence. Virginia has the professional training, technique and experience to bring out the best. I highly recommend the Norwood Music Studio for all ages and skill levels.
My children had music lessons with "Miss Lisa" for over ten years now, in both piano and voice. Now, she is even helping my young actress daughter with her audition monologues. She is a very gifted instructor, and is willing to step out of the box to encourage students and to develop their skills. Patient, kind, and thoughtful, she is nowhere near the "scary piano teacher" stereotype. We have followed her through several locations, and are excited for the new Encinitas Music Workshop. My daughter now has hour-long private voice lessons weekly, and still learns new things on a regular basic. At the new workshop space, there is also an opportunity for a break of pace with Guitar Hero, percussion learning, piano, and other musical pursuits.
I've worked with tim mcmahon now for several years, and I can honestly say that this man knows the drums! In addition to being a great drummer, Tim is a talented teacher as well. Tim is professional, knowledgeable, and so easy to get along with. He has very creative ways of helping his students reach their goals. A fantastic teacher! I have learned so much about music from Tim.
I highly recommend studying voice with Elizabeth Kimery! I am a professional singer and classic musical theatre performer (BA Vocal Performance); I’ve studied with some terrific teachers, but Elizabeth is who I’ve clicked with the most, and who has helped me to sing whatever style of music I've wanted/needed to, to the best of my ability. While we have worked on a lot of classical music together, she is the only teacher who has helped me develop a very healthy contemporary musical theatre/belt sound, as well as ways to switch back and forth between styles (if you’d like examples, you can check out some of my recordings here: http://www.ashleywagnerarts.com/). That has been invaluable to my work! I studied with Elizabeth while living and working in San Diego (shows with Lamb’s Players, Cygnet, etc…) and worked with her on audition prep for Disney. I was hired by Disney Cruise Line as a singer/actor (primary role, Mary Poppins), later worked professionally in Washington, DC, before recently relocating back to CA. I’m thrilled to be studying with her again! If you live in San Diego and want to study voice (including more than only classical music), you need to call her. Her rates are affordable, she is very caring, and if you give her a chance, she will help you greatly.
My daughter Sarah was frightened to go before an audience. She even refused to rehearse her lines and sing in front of her parents. We worked with singing and acting coaches, but it was Theresa Finamore that really changed my daughter. Once we started working with Theresa, we dropped all the other coaches. Theresa was positive and vivacious. She brought fun to the whole acting and singing experience. She turned my daughter from a shrinking wall flower to the star of her school musical. The experience with Theresa changed my daughters life. She now has confidence and poise whenever she is in front of an audience.
Julien is a great musician who is comfortable with all styles & levels. Weather you're in a band with him or taking lessons you will benefit from all the experience he's gathered over the years!
I grew so much as a singer with Sarah as my teacher. She is extremely passionate about what she does and works hard to see growth in her students. I learned a great deal about how to sing properly. After a few lessons I was reaching notes I couldn't have imagined hitting months earlier.
I found Dave Lake back in 2001 when I was first learning about the drums. He was very patient with me an taught me all of my rudiments. Now I play in a band and can't thank Dave enough for his guidance!
I am delighted to work with Ron Haslam. I am working on rudiments and learning to read music and he has an excellent approach using stick control and how to strike the drum properly to reading drum music and incorporating this in every rhythm we study.
Our 5 year-old has improved a great deal while taking lessons with Amy. She has made it fun and has personalized her lessons to his interest and developmental stage. He now has a better posture while playing and has started to read music.
Music lessons offered: Piano, voice, guitar, ukulele, drums, conga, rock band and violin. Lessons are available in small group or private.
I started Walker Music Lessons as a way to share my love of music with the next generation of hungry musicians. Since learning the Piano as a child, I understand the role music played in my early childhood and formative years, and I would like to share that with your child. Currently, I am versed in quite a few instruments and currently, my brother and I, teach the Violin, Guitar, and Piano. I have a private music studio in which to give instruction, but I am more than willing to drive to your location. The studio is also available to rent out. Thank you for reading, I can’t wait to get started.
