great professional service very responsive and love kids enjoying Spanish lessons
His instruction makes the lessons clear and easy to understand. The homework is enjoyable because it builds up skill. He isn't rushed so learning is fun. I really enjoy it.
Fast response and enjoying my lessons. Highly recommended.
My lessons with Andi were always cool. He has a lot of knowledge, and has a easy going approach to teaching guitar. His goal is to get the client to be able to play what their interest is as oppose to pushing his style of preference. Andi will create tab, cord structure and mp3 for the student. He is a great instructor with a lot of patience. As a older guy, I recommend him for students of all ages.
Was promptly on time for our very first lesson. My 4 year old Autistic son immediately opened up to her and even on command started following her instructions the very first day which if you know anything about autism, that's huge. Needless to say we quickly committed to many more lessons. We're very happy to have found her and look forward to watching our sons love of music grow under her tutelage. Thank you Miss Mianzi! :)
I am an adult with zero music education, I love classical music and decided to start playing piano for pleasure. Acquiring a skill is a project in our busy lives, a piano teacher is a partner in such a project, you need to find the one who would make it work. Finding Stella has been great for me. She is very flexible and dynamic, so far we have been able to schedule regular bi-weekly lessons despite the fact I live in Portland and Berkeley and keep traveling between them. More importantly, Stella is very efficient at utilizing the little time we spend together. She spends half of the lesson time reviewing homework and the rest of the lesson discussing assignment with demos in class. She starts by asking me to exercise my hands at the new assignment in class, she gives comments on posture, hand position and movement of my wrests, fingering and sheet reading. She emphasizes the purpose of the assignment (speed, muscles strengthening ... etc). While I am exercising she is always busy writing notes on my performance and things to watch for and new assignments. *She is super efficient at using the lesson time*. I definitely recommend Stella. I think she can be your partner in your piano project.
Kelly made the first lesson super fun and engaging for my boys. We will be continuing lessons with Kelly!
I had a great time taking lessons with David this summer. He is friendly and flexible, and helped me learn to sing and play guitar at the same time. We worked through most of Rubber Soul together! Highly recommend!
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:)
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.
We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.
My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.
My 11 year old daughter recently started taking lessons from Ms. Matoush and I can't believe the progress and enthusiasm! My daughter was very excited about learning, but seems to lack discipline (I bought her books and videos to learn at home; but that didn't end up working out). These in-person lessons have gotten her genuinely excited and she's practicing and progressing wonderfully now. I'm considering enrolling my 9 year old son as well, since now he's suddenly interested in playing the piano too!
I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.
I've been playing guitar by myself for a couple of years through tabs/video lessons etc. My progress has exponentially increased since Sedat has started teaching. He is one of the most patient and polite teachers I've seen.He was very quick to gauge my understanding of music and the instrument and planned my lessons accordingly. I have been trying to understand music theory for a while. Sedat's lessons are an amalgam of theory, technique (finger exercises) and songs. I'm finally able to understand what I'm playing rather than just learning through tabs. He has a wide knowledge of different techniques used in many genres (Rock, Jazz, Blues, Fusion etc) and can help his student improve their craft in the style they love. Needless to say, he's a brilliant guitarist himself. I once attended one of his concerts and it was amazing. I've struggled with self-learning through various means but learning with Sedat has been a huge positive enforcement in my guitar playing. His versatility with his music and patience with the students makes him an amazing teacher and I'd recommend students of all levels and age to learn from him.
Marla is a wonderful teacher. I was looking for someone who specializes in classical vocal training and she was perfect. I've had 4 lessons so far and am learning a lot about the mechanics of proper diaphragm usage, placements in order to produce the ideal sound. One thing to remember about learning any instrument (and yes, your voice is an instrument!) is that you won't master it overnight or even over the course of a couple of months. It takes time, practice, and perseverance. So far Marla has been an excellent teacher and I look forward to continue working with her.
I struggled with piano as a child. It made me feel like I would never be capable of learning music. Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Forrest, and he proved me wrong. I'm proud to say that I can play open chords with ease! I'm excited for more lessons!
Sarah participated in the St. John's choir and also took private vocal lessons with Emily to improve her singing and confidence. We found Emily to be fun, responsible, engaging, and we saw great improvements in Sarah's abilities during her time with Emily. Additionally, I will emphasize that Emily has great skill in working with a variety of personalities, including expert skills in working with special needs kids.
Edgar was great to work with! I HIGHLY recommend his services! My son took lessons off & on for a couple of months before serving his full-time mission in Argentina & hands down it was the best investment we could do for him to help prepare him!
Alison is a very nice teacher and I enjoyed my trial lesson with her. Unfortunately being a student I am unable to afford lessons or pay for a good guitar so I'm placing this passion of mine on a hold.
Lessons from Michael are great. He is great about tweaking sessions to your personal needs to specifically target and prioritize what someone may be struggling with most at that time. He is very encouraging and his experience really shows in the lessons.
