My 9 year old son started taking piano lessons about 4 months ago for the first time with Michelle. He was a beginner and was hesitant to start lessons not knowing what to expect from them, but he has come to love them! Michelle has been great encouraging him and at times pushing him to do his best when he gets a little lazy. She has been able to recognize his strengths and weaknesses in the short time we have been with her, which I think is a sign of a good teacher. Michelle is professional and tries to be as accommodating as she can with rearranging lesson times when we need it.

Donna Stoering has the rare gift of not only being a fantastic concert pianist who has traveled the world sharing her gift, but a gifted and highly effective teacher. I have my B.A. in piano and wanted advanced lessons after graduation. Donna listened for my strengths and found a way to both inspire and respect me as a student. She is amazing in how she helps her students with bench, shoulder, arm, wrist, and hand position using the body to create beautiful tones and create a musical story. When you learn a new piece from Donna, you'll understand the composer who wrote the piece and the mood he/she was trying to convey. She teaches her students how to join the composer, bringing their original thoughts and feelings into play as they perform. This brings a whole new life to practicing the piano. She is an expert in teaching technique and clarity. She is an expert in helping the student understand how to touch the keyboard in a distinctive manner for each style of music, i.e., French Impressionism has a different touch than Baroque. I am so grateful for having the privilege of taking lessons from Donna Stoering. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced performer, Donna is the teacher for you.

Daniel Jackson has helped my voice improve so much and has helped me learn the correct technique. I came to him for lessons after taking almost 3 years off singing and Daniel makes sure that every week I progress a little bit. After only a couple lessons I could personally tell that my range had increased and it feels easier to sing. Daniel makes sure you are singing songs that you love and he is fun to be around!

My daughter who is 8 years old has been coming to Kathleen for lessons for almost 2 years. She is very patient with my daughter and is great when it comes to rescheduling. The differance with Kathleen & other studios is that if we're late or just can't make it she makes sure she gives us our makeup time. Where other studios will not. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering learning to play piano.

Private lessons are the most direct / proven method of learning to play / master a musical instrument. Mark's education and long time teaching background gives him an advantage in helping students progress. I'm coming up on 3 years studying under Mark and I am very happy with the results. He helps you practice, which he does a nice job of emphasizing, by keeping assignments fun yet focusing on good fundamentals - which are key long term improvement.

I chose Bob to help me understand music theory and how it relates to the electric bass. He understands exactly what it is that I am trying to achieve and has constructed my lesson plan accordingly. He has been flexible with my schedule, and I return frequently as to make sure I'm getting the most out of his lessons.

Mark has been teaching our daughter for three years. She was only 10 years old when she started and was full of questions and hopes of instant mastery. Mark was really patient, answering her questions and building success into each week to sustain her morale while she learned that it doesn't happen overnight. While she is still on the road to mastery, she has grown a trust in Mark to let him set the pace. He reciprocates by encouraging her to practice and influence the pace. I also enjoy that Mark has the flexibility to work with our daughter. His approach allows her to pick some song she likes. He can listen to the song and adapt it into a relevant lesson or teach her the chords and allow her to learn the song. This mixed with the variety of classics and Christian pop songs will make for a well-rounded skill set for our daughter. I have the opportunity each week to watch one of Mark's long time students play and am really impressed at his comfort and skill playing a variety of styles.

"I had guitar lessons with the Guitar Institute of Learning for a little over 3 years, and those years were the first 3 years I had in my experience of ever playing the guitar. I learned so much from my teacher. He taught me Jazz Standards, folk songs, and even things that were accommodated to my own interests as well! More importantly, I gained a life changing perspective from the songs, chords, melodies and harmonies that my teacher taught me. The concepts never get old. Guitar Institute of Learning does not just teach you how to play guitar, but how to practice it and how to become a great musician. It can be one thing to play an instrument, but to know how to play with other musicians requires a development of playing with others and applying your knowledge. Which is what guitar institute of learning can help you do. Everything I learned from GIOL literally changed my view and appreciation for music once I became more aware of the music world. I learned things that, once I looked back and realized what I was learning, I was so surprised and grateful that I was shown such great songs. I will always have a gratitude for the class and vast repertoire that they had opened me up to. As a musician, now playing guitar for 8 years, I would not be where I am today without those lessons. Knowing how important practicing everyday is, and finding how you define music will help you find an appreciation and motivation from and beyond these lessons." -Lawrence S. Abbott

I had studied piano as a child, and I began to play again after I retired. When I moved to Walnut Creek I transferred my piano lessons to Martin. I found that his lessons were much more comprehensive than my previous teacher's. In addition to helping with the basics, he teaches more subtle aspects of interpreting each piece that results in greater musicality than I had achieved before. Although this is more demanding, he is very supportive and encouraging, and I look forward to each lesson.

Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

What do you learn in a first aid course?

First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

  • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
  • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
  • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
  • First-, second- and third-degree burns
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Bites and stings
  • Hypothermia or frostbite
  • Shock and seizures
