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.
Jeffrey Keefer is a versatile and intuitive musician who gives his students amazing tools to play music and enjoy playing the music they love, right from the very start! I have wanted to be able to play the piano and the guitar my entire life. My parents paid good money for 'classical style' lessons for me when I was very young, but I never felt that I was successful in my early lessons as a child. As a result of these early lessons, I even lost some of my passion for the instruments because the lessons were such dull, sad, drudgery. Now that I am older, much older, I have even less patience for the "Hickory Dickory Dock" style songs that early learners are often limited to. Jeffrey's lessons are active and engaging and have practical applications for the real world of music today. I am learning to play music that I truly love after only a few lessons! Jeffrey provides the right tools to play fun music, right now. He also supports this knowledge with the important essentials for long term musicianship. I come from a family where all of my siblings were classically trained musicians (I was the only 'undisciplined one'). My sisters and brothers conceded in conversations over the years that music would have been much more of a joy for them if they could have learned by a 'Jeffrey Keefer' style method. For me, the desired result of these lessons is to play music and build valuable skills that enable me to play, right away. I am so jazzed about practicing every day and I can't wait to learn more at the next lesson. Jeffrey Keefer's teaching method has been a breakthrough for me after years of believing that I just wasn't musically 'gifted'. Now, I play!
Melody is an amazing voice coach! I am quite the novice and I have learned more from Melody in a month than all of my collective years in choir. She has an uncanny way of teaching theory, warm ups and tempo in a very engaging way. I feel so fortunate to have found her. She is a kind soul and very knowledgeable and skilled at imparting it to others! If you are on the fence, search no more!
My children have very much enjoyed learning piano with Jeremiah. He is very patient with them and nicely caters their lessons to their learning styles and potential. We look forward to continuing our lessons with him!
Mary has done a great job with teaching me how to play guitar! I'm a beginner and she has taught me all of the basics and music theory. She's also provided books for me to take home and practice, which has been extremely helpful. Definitely recommend Mary for anyone wanting to learn guitar from a more technical side.
My kid is starting piano lessons for the first time and Brooke inspires her to learn how to play and to improve.
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.
Only had 2 lessons but they have been really good. Helping my son with technique and mastering his 6th grade jazz band music. He moves a little quickly but so far that hasn't been a problem. Took awhile to find a drum instructor when we moved here but glad we found Stephen!
Catherine has been wonderful to work with and my son loves his music lessons! He looks forward to his weekly sessions with her and has found her coaching to be very helpful with improving his voice.
If you are seeking guitar lessons take this into account: You're going to learn the chords and strum patterns regardless of who teaches you. The trick is finding someone who is passionate about music and teaching it to others. Outstanding is not a word I sling around haphazardly, but Dave has earned it. Dave is very passionate about his music, is a very talented musician and he sincerely enjoys passing along his knowledge to others. If you chose Dave as your instructor, you will not be disappointed in any way. His price is a great value.
She was very easy to understand and if she wasn't clear she could explain something in multiple perspectives. Calee's work ethic definitely shows. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to get into music lessons!
Egemen is an exceptional instructor / private tutor that builds the class based on the particular needs of each pupil. He meets with each individual to define goals for the class. Then, in order to reach these goals, he identifies the strengths and weaknesses of the pupil, and prepares the contents of the class accordingly. He never hesitates to take the extra step to come up with material that best suits the capabilities of the particular individual. No matter if you're interested in music theory, music composition, electronic music, or piano, Egemen is an inexhaustible resource that will keep you impatient for the next lesson.
Fantastic guitar teacher. I've been playing for almost 25 years, but I knew nothing about music theory. Over the course of 12 weeks, he made sense out of everything I had been doing up to that point. I now have a much better understanding of how music works instead of just memorizing tablature. He also introduced me to recording for the first time. LOTS of fun. Thanks Brett!
If you really want to enjoy playing a guitar acoustic or electric theres no aspect of playing or personal effort thats going to get you to that goal of enjoyment and self-confidence faster than an exceptional teacher. After a year of lessons, I found Lyle Long to be a truly exceptional teacher and musician. As a teenager, I was given a guitar by my grandmother, and over the next few years taught myself some basic chords, a few songs, and a lot of bad habits and techniques. I never took lessons. Looking back, I now understand why I got frustrated, lost interest, sold the guitar, and walked away from playing for 45 years. Last year, I picked up a guitar and find out what I could do with it. At 63, I wondered if an old dog really could learn any new tricks. From the first lesson, Lyle brushed away all of my hesitation and self-doubts, and started working on fixing those old, self-inflicted bad habits, poor techniques, and mistaken concepts. To put it mildly, it was great fun, amusing, and instructive; but step-by-step, a real confidence builder. I can only imagine what might have been if Id have been lucky enough to have had a teacher like Lyle when I was a teenager. Without doubt, the positive impacts would have been far more than just improving my musical abilities. To any parents out there who are considering music lessons for their children, I highly recommend Lyle Long as an instructor, and a role model. And if youre an adult, and ever wondered if you could play a guitar, all I can say is, Stop wasting time thinking about it! Give Lyle a call. I guarantee youll have a ball finding out more about guitars, music, and yourself than you ever imagined possible. Chris Crown
Amazing! I highly recommend Anne! She is wonderful at helping me visualize the vocal techniques so it's easier for me to understand and making me share in her excitement for music. After one lesson I can already tell she is very talented and passionate about teaching her craft! I look forward to more lessons!
Mrs. Fraser is a great teacher! My daughter had taken lessons with her for years now. It has always been a wonderful experience. My daughter has learned so much about the piano and music theory. She really cares about each student and their families. We always look forward to the piano recitals for her students each year. It is a wonderful showcase of each student and where they are at in their skills. Not to mention what an excellent piano performer she is as well! Thank you Mrs. Fraser for your dedication and talent!
I have been taking lessons at Dove Music Lessons for 5 years. I have learned so much about playing piano and performing, I especially appreciate what I have learned about music theory. Amanda is very supportive and professional. She also has realistic expectations from children, making piano lessons a fun event in my everyday life.I plan to take lessons from Amanda until I go to college.
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.
Alex is very professional and patient. He responded to my texts very quickly.His rate is very affordable, just $40.00/ lesson. I asked him to call me, because I didn't like to text; and he called me back. I would really like to take piano lessons from him. But unfortunately, I can't at this moment. I told him that and he was very understathatnding. I would recommend him to any one who wants to take piano lessons. He's great to work with,
Chandrika is an excellent music teacher. She is extremely patient and works very well with children. She is also an excellent source of music theory knowledge. Chandrika is a joy to work with and I would highly recommend her to students of all ages!
great teacher - especially if you want a diverse and well round experience grounded in theory and jazz. David is able to meet our son where he is at and motivate him to keep growing as a pianist and musician.
