My son was hesitant to start his guitar lessons, and if he didn’t like it, it would be a major ordeal to get him in the car to go. I work like everyone and have zero time left. The fact that Tess comes to the house to teach - while I prepare dinner - is freaking awesome. What a time saver. And shes made it a great experience by offering tons of encouragement and lots of laughter wrapped up in a neat 30 min session. Highly recommend.

Kevin is talented, knowledgeable and patient. He started almost a year ago giving guitar lessons to my two kids (11 & 13) and I. I am so proud to see my kids progress and be able to play songs. Kevin does a great job and I highly recommend him.

I’ve been taking lessons from Jeff for a few weeks now, and I have appreciated his approach to teaching the drums which has taken into account my own playing abilities and tendencies rather than trying to fit a one-size-fits-all approach. Having played for quite a few years, I was looking for a teacher to help identify areas I could clean up and help take my drumming to the next level. Within a couple of sessions, Jeff was able to identify a couple of key areas that I was needing to develop (mainly related to foot and hand technique) and come up with a game plan to start building up these areas. So far, I have found this new practice area to be very beneficial, and can notice an improvement in my overall feel and flow. Jeff is also very approachable and receptive, which I think is one of the most important qualities of a good teacher. I would definitely recommend Jeff for high-quality and individual-focused drum lessons.

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 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.

I have been taking drum lessons from Josh for approximately two years. I am extremely pleased with my growth as a drummer. Josh’s studio is located at Denver Percussion, a full service store for all percussion needs. The lesson studio has two full acoustic drum kits - no electric drums! Not only is Josh an incredible drummer and instructor but his knowledge of enhancing your lesson with computer assistance is second to none. One of the best features is the video you receive from Josh after your lesson. Your full lesson is available to you at any time through a YouTube link provided by Josh. I give Josh my highest recommendation.

Ryan gives drum lessons to my 9 year old son. He's great to work with and always has relevant lessons planned for my son. My kiddo enjoys the lessons and looks up to Ryan as a teacher because he's seen Ryan play shows!! Highly recommend Ryan as an instructor.

My son has had two lessons with William so far, and we've been very impressed. He is knowledgeable, experienced, encouraging, skilled, and very in tune to his student's abilities and needs. We are very excited to see how our son progresses! He has certainly learned a lot already.

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 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.

My daughter has been taking lessons at Littleton School of Music for almost three years, mainly piano, but some guitar and some voice, and she has become a pretty good player. More than that, she loves music and playing and singing, and that will last her a lifetime. I love that her lessons are tailored to her musical interests and goals, and can be adjusted as those shift. A few months ago I started taking guitar lessons there myself, and I'm so happy I did. My lesson is one of the highlights of my week. The staff at the school are engaging and professional and enthusiastic. The school offers opportunities to perform for students who are so inclined. The summer band camp is an amazing experience. I just can't say enough great things about this wonderful place, and the people who work there!

I was recommended to Paul by a friend. He is so patient with me, and knows how to keep things fun! He's also incredibly knowledgeable in his teaching. He has encouraged me every step of the way! I have taken lessons with other teachers, and Paul is unique in that he brings his guitar to lessons so we get to "jam" and I feel like I'm in a band. I would recommend him for all ages. Love him!

    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 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

    I have over 35 years of teaching experience. Learn on real drums for all age levels and styles. I also offer Skype lessons.

    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.

    Hello! I am Daniel, a music professional, educator and music producer.My experience spans 10 years in the Music Education, Piano Performance, Production & Composition, and Artist Development field.I have educated and collaborated with students, artists, and music enthusiasts of several genres, and proficiency levels internationally. I'm quite student focused and strive to assist my students in achieving their specific goals. I commit to working one on one, to help get information students need from every lesson. I believe one key way to educate is by creating a friendly, relaxed, affable and non- judgmental atmosphere. I work with adult and teenage students, students with special needs, and students looking for instruction in genre specifics like, rock, pop, blues, Afro-beat and many more.
