Clifford is patient, tailors his teaching method to my abilities, is flexible with my schedule, and is passionate about his profession. As an adult, it's especially challenging for me to be taking beginner piano lessons, but quite fun. I've experienced quite a bit of progress under his tutelage over the last several months and am quite pleased.

As a lifelong guitarist who was self taught I decided that I needed to try my hand at a different instrument. I had always wanted to learn the piano so I decided to give it a go. Being a self taught musician, I had lots of bad habits that I took with me to my piano lessons with Stella. She was incredibly patient with me and helped me undo decades of bad practice habits along with teaching me good habits to replace them with. Her knowledge of music and her talent on the piano are clearly evident and she knows how to translate that into teaching others, which is an often challenging task. All in all, the lessons were a valuable experience that I would certainly recommended to anyone interested in learning piano.

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 started piano lessons with Toby in January 2017. Toby is one of the best teachers I have ever known. She is incredibly patient, well-organized, and customizes lessons to fit each student's unique needs. I am a Chopin lover and Toby specializes in Romantic period composers like Chopin. She truly cares about the progress of her students. Toby lets her students choose their pieces and she often plays select classical pieces to inspire and push me. I am starting a beginning intermediate Chopin piece already as she has really inspired me to practice and improve. She has also played some of her original compositions which are beautiful. She is a virtuoso pianist. I feel so lucky to have her as a teacher. Don't hesitate to contact her for lessons.

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.

Both of our kids ( 12 and 10 ) are having a nice time with Lynn while learning their drills. She connects with them individually and helps them learn their drills in a smooth way. Our daughter loves her voice and piano lessons. On the other hand, our son did not want to take piano lessons at all but after a few lessons with Lynn, he decided to stay with it! How great is that! Thank you so much Lynn!!! :-) I am happy and looking forward to seeing more of their progress!

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!

Joann is a wonderful knowledgeable piano instructor. I stared my son in weekly piano lessons with Joann at age 6, last year. I was very impressed with her ability to teach the basics in a way he understood and connected to. He likes and respects her and is eager to learn. Joann is very relaxed, patient, and positive with him. I am very pleased! I would definitely recommend her to other potential students, young or old.

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.

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.

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've just had one lesson so far, which was amazing. I'm just starting to learn music and singing, and Emily seems like the perfect teacher for a beginner like me. I'm really excited to continue learning with Emily.

Holly responded quickly to all of my questions about piano lessons, her background, schedule, etc. She was more than willing to give me references from other families that have children taking lessons from her. My daughter is a beginner. We have been taking lessons with Holly for a month now and my daughter enjoys working with her and seems to be picking up the skills.

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!
