I was nervous about starting guitar lessons, but chose to try it out with Kevin...thank God I did! He makes it fun, enjoyable, stress free and also challenges you to do more than you think you can. He has the patience to work with someone who may need a little extra help, and the skill to work with someone who excels quickly. I love my time with him, and would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of starting the guitar for the first time, or someone who wants a little help knocking the rust off...he's fantastic!

My mom has always wanted to play the drums but never got a chance, so for her 71st birthday we got her a drum lesson package with Stephen. Never too late to learn something new! She absolutely LOVES the lessons and has been very happy with Stephen. He is professional, kind, and most of all makes the lessons fun! I am so glad that we found Stephen - he has been a fantastic teacher for my mom.

We are very happy with the piano lessons Genevieve provides to our 9 year old son and our 7 year old daughter. They enjoy learning from her and they're given lots of choices for what they want to play. She's also very flexible with rearranging lesson times if we have to miss. The recitals and sectionals have been fun and helpful too, and we are looking forward to the summer camp if it works with our schedule. :)

My sister Hailey has been taking piano lessons with Anna Sobotka for 2 months now and has made tremendous improvement in such a short amount of time. I am very happy I signed up with Golden Music and hope to continue with lessons for as long as Hailey continues to love them.

We love Jeremy and Modern Music Studio! Our boys have been taking guitar lessons from Jeremy for two years, and he makes it fun. They love going, and Jeremy goes out of his way to get them excited about music and customize their lessons. Highly recommend.

My son Cameron has been taking drum lessons from Ryan for a little over 6 months. He is very positive and kind, leaving my son with a smile on his face after every lesson. He even got us into one of his shows for free and brought us backstage! I would absolutely recommend Ryan as a drum teacher.

I love this service. I have 3 kids, and our teacher comes to the house and teaches them all back to back at the same time. It's one less thing we have to drive to, and a life saver for my family. Thank you Traveling Music Lessons!

We have really enjoyed how well Rich has worked with our son. It is not easy teaching a 4 year old to play drums and Eli is LOVING it and his teacher! Thank you Thumbtack too for offering a service where we could find Joyful Noise easily.

I can tell Michael puts time into thinking about how to teach as well as what to teach. I always come away with a firm idea about what to practice and how that will be applied in the future. He is a trained musician and I feel I benefit from his experience of being a student of the drums. He is a friendly, upbeat person who sincerely wants to see me succeed. He answers questions without belaboring, and weaves interesting information about the greater drum culture into his answers. He keeps the class moving at a fun pace and challenges without intimidating. I am a beginner, and I highly recommend Michael as a drum teacher if you are just starting out, but I think his dedication to the art would make him a great teacher for any level.

We received percussion lessons from Kevin Keith. He not only is an excellent musician, but he is a wonderful teacher. He is very knowledgeable in many genres of music, from solo literature, to band/orchestral music, to jazz. Of which, he shares his knowledge and experiences with his students freely. He is very hardworking and enthusiastic to ensure that his students get a quality education. He is great in communication, both with the student , in ensuring understanding of lesson materials, and with the parents on updates on how the lessons are progressing. He has a very patient and friendly disposition, that would allow anyone to feel comfortable in working with him. He has been a wonderful teacher and mentor for the past 2.5 years.

I have had a some other drum teachers and Mike is by far the best teacher I've had. He does an excellent job of building the lessons around the direction I need to improve upon and he integrates new concepts into our lessons very well. He has helped me think like a drummer, something that has been very eye opening for me. Also his analogies are on point.

Lyza is able to connect with young children and adapt to different learners. She started with our son when he was 3.5 and he was very interested in actually playing Instruments. Most folks just turned us down and told us to take one of those toddler group classes as he was too young for real lessons. The classes were all nice but not all that interesting to him. We tried several different places. All with great reviews like swallow hill and such. Lyza has a great balance of structure, free form, global exploration with the various instruments she brings with her, focus on specifics of an instrument and learning to read music. She is also a really intelligent, kind and fun person who you can completely trust with your child. Value - she comes to your home for 45 per hour. And it's a full hour. Often a bit longer. That is an amazing value. At |15-30 for various 45 minute group classes you are better off doing lessons with lyza every other week.

Mr Rich taught drums to my 8/9 year old daughter for two years. She made great progress and loved the lessons because Rich always made them fun. She got to choose songs she wanted to play the drums to, and that was complemented with drum music book practice. Rich is skilled at applying a little pressure to improve, without too much pressure that it became too difficult or burdensome. He was very easy to schedule with and always arrived on time. Highly recommend!

About

I teach Heavy Metal, Hard Rock drumming, Double bass techniques, rudiments, odd meter, hand/foot patterns, phrasing, structuring a thematic drum part, playing with a click track, reading, power with finesse, fluidity, etc. I teach piano with an emphasis on musical literacy, theory and proper technique. I have over twenty years of experience as both a private instructor and professor of music composition. I hold the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Music Composition from the University of Colorado at Boulder where I also work as a music instructor.

About

We are a home-based studio. Our home has been converted with multiple sound-proofed areas included a space with a waiting area and a large viewing windows for parents of students. My wife, Rachel teaches piano and toddler music classes under the name Monkey Musik. I teach drums, guitar, and trumpet in a separate studio space of our home. We have taught students of all ages and skill levels for nearly 10 years. I take drum students starting at age five. I have a child-sized set and an adult sized set to accommodate any size of student from beginner to moderate skill levels. I take guitar/ukelele students starting at age seven. I can help recommend a new instrument for students if they don't have one. I don't teach tabs. I teach using a classical method that focuses on learning to read and understand written music. I also blend chord knowledge with classical knowledge from beginner to advanced skill levels. I take trumpet students starting at age 9-10 or younger on a case-by-case basis. For beginner trumpet students, I will focus on how to form an embouchure and how to play notes in the first octave. With more advanced students, I focus on range, tone, accuracy, and endurance. For moderate-advanced students, I teach from Arbans.

About

My drum lessons stand out from other drum lessons because I focus on teaching you what you want to know, not what I want you to know. I help you learn by associating drums with something you can personally relate to.

About

I have been an independent music instructor for over 25 years. I teach piano, classical guitar, electric guitar, cello, drums and music theory. I provide long-term support for students of all ages.

About

I have played drums and piano since i was about 6 years old and have taught music theory to friends and beginners since my teens. I offer a wide variety of stylistic training from jazz to funk to rock set drumming. I also offer Snare drumming and mallet lessons for those in their school bands. I have worked with kids in a wide range of jobs but will teach anyone relatively new to percussion.
