We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

Guitar and drum lessons. James is amazing. Personable, easy going, and professional. Teaches according to student's abilities and desires. Can learn any song you want to learn and then show you in a manner you can handle.

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.

My son Max has been taking drum lessons from Blake for almost a year. He hit the ground running from day one, teaching the basics including reading music which I believe every musician should know. Blake's methods and personality have made drum lessons enjoyable and Max looks forwarded to his weekly sessions. I would absolutely recommend Blake to anyone interested in learning to play the drums.

I took drum lessons with Damien from the end of junior high school until the summer before I left for college and loved every minute of it! Damien's passion for music is contagious and his enthusiasm in our lessons encouraged me to explore music in a way that I had not expected. By incorporating my personal musical likes into his teaching style he created a comfortable atmosphere where I was not limited by self doubt. I miss our lessons and highly recommend him as a musical instructor.

I have taken guitar lessons from Kim for many years. Not only is she an amazing guitarist who provided expert guidance but she was able to help me move from a basic beginner status to new levels in chord progression and improvisational technique. I highly recommend her lessons for an anyone with an interest in learning more about playing the guitar and music in general.

I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!

Stefano is a great teacher! I started taking drum lessons as an adult who'd always wanted to learn drums but had no experience. Stefano makes sure to work at your pace, finding the balance between pushing you to grow while ensuring you grasp everything and are actively improving and understanding. He also dives right into your favorite music making practicing fun and satisfying from the very start.

I was, no, am so impressed with every aspect of Mr. Snydman's lessons. Need I say more? Yes! In addition to his musical knowledge, he is a genuinely kind caring person.

I've been taking lessons from Matthew for about a year now. The amount I have progressed is crazy. Last year I was playing 4/4 beats along to weezer and now I can play Tom Sawyer from start to finish. What's really cool about Matthew is that he concentrates on technique rather than fancy fills, although he is capable of teaching both. The technique is what's ultimately going to get me work in the long run though. He is constantly improving himself as well as teaching me things he learns along the way. Very easy to work with and easily the most hilarious person I know. If you're looking for drum lessons, look no further. He's not cheap but has worked with me on his hourly rate. Remember, you get what you pay for.

Great drum school. My son has been taking drum lessons with Chris and he absolutely loves it. The first thing my son does when we get home from the lesson is run to play his drums. He talks about the lesson all week and can't wait for the next lesson to come. Great place for kids.

I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didn’t know a good teacher so I asked around. Howard’s name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howard’s approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, I’m stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howard’s influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. I’m confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.

I had taken about 6 months of drum lessons and sort of hit a wall with my progress. I needed a teacher who would customize for my interests and abilities and help me stay motivated to practice at home. So far I have taken 2 hours of lessons with John J who is a very patient and encouraging teacher. He has already covered so much ground that previous teachers glossed over, and I feel like I have a much more solid foundation because of it. I would recommend his drum lessons for any age because he can definitely meet you at your current skill level, and it seems like he could get along with anybody--kids, teens, and adults.

Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!

My grandson took lessons on the drums from Dave which were really great. He became a very good drummer but James also became interested in the keyboard and guitar, so along with his drum lessons Dave would give him beginner lessons on the other instruments which gave James an even greater love for music. Dave has a great way with his students and is available to the parents that may have questions or concerns. Many times Dave went above and beyond what was required of him. James has had a very positive experience with Dave and I would highly recommend him to any body that wants to learn drums.

He focuses on making you a better musician and not just a stick spinning rock star- but he can do that if that's what you are going for. Great lessons to keep your mind and body in rhythm.

Kalil is a great teacher who is always assessing your level and adjusting the lessons to benefit you. He understands your strengths and weaknesses to push you to the next level. My skills have improved much due to the lessons. And he is great teacher and a friend.

Brian is patient and such an enthusiastic teacher. I am having a great time learning how to play the hand drum Djambe and also the cymbals and regular drums. Teaching an old dog new tricks takes time and Brian is so calm and reassuring. Brian is an accomplished drummer and teacher. Learning beats and rhythms for the first time in my life with someone who points outs all the positives in my effort.
