I started seeing Mike a few months ago for private guitar lessons. Having received lessons from a few other people, I can say that make is the best instructor I've had. I felt that I had hit a brick wall in learning music theory before getting lessons from Mike. But over the past few months, Mike has explained guitar music theory to me in a clear, and informative way. I know have a better understanding of guitar playing, and enjoy it more because of that. I would highly recommend getting guitar lessons from Mike whether you are a beginner, or a more experienced player that needs some help learning music theory.
I have been trying to find a music teacher that I really like and it's been hard. I really am kind of upset because no teacher has ever taught me what he has in two lessons. I have learned a lot more then in the last two lessons compared to other tecahers in the past. I would strongly recommend him for bass, keyboard and guitar. If you wanta be a professional musician and be in a band or just for fun he is the guy to take lessons from.
Melody was one of my first piano teachers, but by far and away the most influential. I remember feeling her love for music, and how that flowed over to me. While learning the technical aspects of piano is extremely important (and something that Melody is fantastic at teaching), what was vastly more important to me was learning to use the instrument to express emotion, and how much more can be taught besides that which is on the page.
I have been taking lessons from Jerimiah since August 2016. He has a wonderfully welcoming and positive attitude, which makes his studio a stress-free environment to improve your playing and challenge yourself. He is very accommodating of students' busy schedules, and is always responsive to text and email. He is very attentive to individual students' goals, and is proficient in a diverse repertoire from musical theater to jazz to classical, both for piano and vocals. He puts on seasonal recitals for his students, which is helpful for student goal-setting and performance confidence. I would recommend Jerimiah to vocal and piano students of any age or skill level. -Dan N.
I have known Mary for over 8 years, as both a musician and friend. She is extremely knowledgeable and talented in everything she does! Mary teaches piano, voice and guitar, plays the organ/piano/guitar at our church, as well as accompanying our choirs. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher!
My 14 years old daughter started voice lesson with Brooke in July 2010 at a local music school. When Brooke moved to a different state, a year and half later, my daughter really missed her. We decided to try lesson via Skype and its been working extremely well for over a year now. My daughter thinks Brooke is a great singer who can really teach. My husband and I are more than happy with the progress our daughter made since working with Brooke and we definitively recommend her to anyone who wants to learn singing.
Jeff is a very knowledgeable and gifted teacher. He brings a unique approach to the table teaching songs of his client's choice; meanwhile incorporating the best techniques for chords and chord progressions. He is very considerate and values his clients time and certainly gets the most out of each lesson. I'm happy to report that I learned my first song, die a happy man by Thomas Rhett, after 2 lessons with Jeff. I highly recommend him to guitarists of all ages and experience.
We signed up for Traveling Music Teachers last week because we liked the idea of not driving our son to his music lesson - I have three kids, so driving all over town isn't always an option. A professional musician came to our house and did the lesson in my living room while I made dinner. It was perfect. Well done.
I first was drawn to Kevin Jones because of his witty advertisements in Facebook homeschooling groups. He seemed to have a very good sense of humor and I thought I could help him out if we became Partners since I was opening a new homeschooling electives program to take place on Mondays. The response to Kevin teaching guitar with us has been amazing! I love his willingness to work with the little kiddos even though they are a little antsy because some music teachers will not allow that unless a student is older. He seems to be a master of his craft and I appreciate his professionalism :) Our home schooling program is certainly glad to have found him!
We have been with Set Apart Studios for 3 years. The teachers are talented, encouraging and fun to be around! We recommend Set Apart Studios to anyone who wants to foster a love of music in their kids!
I studied as an adult student with Serena for over 10 years. She taught me music theory, chords, classical and jazz, and is always patient and skilled to take me down whatever musical path I wanted to explore. I have recommended her to many, and continue to recommend her as a teacher. I especially like that Serena enjoys teaching, and is not someone who settled into teaching when something else didn't pan out.
Ms.Philgreen is a amazing teacher... probably has been one of the best music teachers I've had so far. I studied under her and from the ground level she turned me into a confident and competent musician(in a stunningly small amount of time). She connect and builds an incredible student-teacher relationship, multiple times she feels like a mix of my teacher, bestfriend, sometime family. All of our lessons had a comfortable and productive vibe, she made everthing so easy to understand while still challenging you constantly....Incredible teacher would recommend to anyone.
Laura is very interested in having my daughter be excited about the new music she will be learning. She made my daughter feel very comfortable in order to ask questions and talk freely.
Paul is an amazing guitar teacher. He is fun, creative, talented, enthusiastic and all around a great guy. He really makes an effort to understand his students and bring out the very best in them in a low key, supportive way. I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn guitar. He is also flexible on schedule and meeting place which is priceless.
We've gone through 3 violin instructors before meeting Alex. By far he has been the most caring and engages with his students in a unique way that brings out the best in the kids. He gives the kids just the right amount of fun and challenge for the student. If you add parents that equation and engages in the child's lessons and practice and holds their child accountable for practice, it really is a formula for kids success. We can't say enough about Alex and the part he plays in our daughter life and music/violin education!!
We have been working with Gudrun Fraser for six years now and she is amazing! She has experience, talent, and a gift for teaching. We had to go through several piano teachers that were not up to par before we were recommended to Gudrun, and we have been with her since. I recommend Gudrun Fraser if you want to learn to play piano, and she will make you the best you can be.
Ever since I was little I always loved singing, and Meghan Dawson was my first singing teacher: definitely the most special one I've ever had. She is very professional, patient, has a lot of knowledge, and always taught me that the most important aspect about singing is vocal health. She taught me a lot about voice physiology, and even though I was very young to understand the complexity of the vocal mechanisms, I was able to learn a lot and to develop a voice control and awareness from the time I was 14. She taught me for almost 4 years and I couldn't be more thankful because she introduced me to the opera world and I simply fell in love with it, and now I'm the youngest soprano in the Academy of Opera at the São Pedro Theatre in Brazil. Now, even though I don't have lessons with her anymore, I continue to learn and develop, but only because I had a very good teacher. She will always be my friend and my favorite teacher in the whole world, the one who always believed in my potential above everything, and the one I owe all my accomplishments to. With her, you are definitely in good hands. Anna Beatriz Gomes
I highly reccomend Nic as a guitar teacher! I had never played a guitar until my first lesson with Nic. After a few weeks, I was progressing faster than I thought was possible. Nic is knowledgeable and patient. Great teacher for newbies!
Great teachers, and easy to coordinate lessons! All around awesome experience in advancing my piano skills.
Each week, Michelle had me play my assigned music. She gave me tips on how to improve my song to make it perfect. She didn't go too easy or too hard on me. Michelle's kindness calmed me down whenever I played the piano. Seven years later, I can say-- without a doubt-- that Michelle is an amazing teacher who taught me that music is a way of relieving stress and a way of life.
I decided to pick up drums as an adult a few years back and have been taking lessons with Ryan for over three years now. When I started, was an absolute beginner with no idea what to do behind a drum kit, but Ryan immediately made me feel comfortable and confident. I’ve grown immensely over the years, and I would highly recommend Ryan as a teacher for players at any and all skill levels!
