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.
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.
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
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!
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.
Emily was superbly welcoming and nice. She was very understanding of how nervous my daughter felt when she started, and how self conscious my daughter was about her singing. Emily encouraged her and brought up her confidence by a lot. My daughter loves going to the lessons and enjoys singing a lot nowadays. I would recommend Emily to people of all ages and ability.
Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.
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.
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.
Anna provided a tremendous singing lesson for my wife and I! Thanks Anna!
Thomas is the best music teacher ever. He's giving our whole family lessons at this point and we couldn't be happier with his approach and with our progress. The great thing about Thomas is that he understands music so well, so inside and out, that he can magically see what you need, and how you need to learn, and then teach you that way. He does not bring a one-size-fits-all approach. Take my family for example... he sees that I enjoy abstract thinking and theory... so we talk about the mathematics of music and song structure and why John Williams sucks. My wife on the other hand is more naturally talented, so he has her composing melodies and learning complicated fingering techniques. My daughter is learning how to read music and keep time, and my mother-in-law is starting with simple versions of Vivaldi. We're all roughly at the same level, but he's helping us each approach music in our own way so that we LOVE it. It's difficult to overstate what a truly gifted teacher Thomas is. He's also just a warm, wonderful person. Good luck finding someone better.
Paul taught piano lessons in our home to our three children for ten years. It was a delight to have the lessons going on each week. Paul's style of teaching is very specific to each child. He is a wonderful mentor and teacher. He taught them about the music and the composers and history too. The recitals in the different students homes were very special too. We highly recommend Paul Price.
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
I have been seeing Kenny for adult guitar lessons. He really is an amazing teacher. Having no musical experience in the past I was pretty apprehensive about taking lessons, but after meeting with Kenny and listening to his instruction I felt much more confident and look forward to working with him in the future.
I highly recommend music lessons with Leonid at Percussion Player. He is a dedicated and skilled teacher with an extremely impressive professional resume. You can tell that Leonid is passionate about both music and teaching. He brings his insight and humor to his teaching style, and he makes sure to keep me challenged, but never discouraged. He can teach every musical style imaginable, but especially encourages me to learn music that I personally enjoy. His teaching style incorporates a perfect balance of technique, theory, and performance. Whenever he models an excerpt from the piece we are working on, I am inspired by his artistry and expressivity. The studio is another bonus. I've been to other studios, and compared with them, this one is seriously impressive! There are two drum sets, a xylophone, assorted hand drums, and a piano -- all of which Leonid is equally qualified to teach.
Prompt response to schedule, easy payment online. First lesson with cello teacher with Bridget was great - she is good with kids. Still early on, so hoping it continues to go well!
