I took piano lessons as a teenager about 60 years ago. Over the years, my keyboard abilities have diminished significantly. Gary came up with a plan that will change my playing style and enable me to enjoy playing again. Gary is very easy to work with. The first lesson energized me and I look forward to working with Gary.

I have been going to Gary for 9 years. My girls have received lessons from him in piano, drums, bass guitar and vocals. Gary is an amazing and patient teacher, but more importantly, a wonderful person and friend! I highly recommend him to anyone of any age who has a passion for music. Gary is truly a talent!

I've been taking guitar lessons with Chris for a few months now, and I can hear a clear difference in my playing. He is a great teacher, very patient and encouraging. As a fellow music teacher myself, I can say that his level of musicianship is very impressive. Chris is also very flexible with his scheduling, which is very helpful. I highly recommend him to everyone out there.

Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

From the start, Rock House has been outstanding, with a welcoming, friendly and seriously creative vibe. Extremely talented teachers, and an overall superior, professional outfit. Instructors are actual, working musicians who are certified in the Rock House Method of teaching and are deeply involved in the industry, playing alongside other well-known professionals. They truly care about their students (all ages) and help them work towards their potential. My son has been guided on a learning path for guitar and looks forward to his weekly lessons. His instructor is enthusiastic, very in tune with his needs and an all around cool guy. Rock House sponsors many events, giving the students an opportunity to play publicly (if they choose). One is a teen/youth open mic held at the Community House. Students can play solo, with a teen house band composed of Rock House students, other musicians their age or with a backing track. Giving students an opportunity to show their skills and gain confidence playing in front of others. Rock House has been inspiring, welcoming and encouraging. 5 stars all around. I highly recommend Rock House to everyone I know.

Excellent staff and instructors. I have been affiliated with the Rockhouse school for over a decade and the school has done nothing short of pushing it's own boundaries everyday to perfect a learning system that is concise, unique and second to none. Highly recommended for lessons of all instruments.

My 2 children (ages 9 and 7) have been taking piano lessons from Laura for the past 8 months now and she is wonderful! My children have very different musical preferences and she is very accommodating to both. She makes the lessons fun and they always look forward to lesson days. My children are very eager to practice and learn new songs (which she provides them) and they have made leaps and bounds since Laura has become their teacher. We are very thankful to have found such a wonderful and knowledgeable teacher. I would highly recommend her!

So far I am loving my classes with Laura. She is very professional, and I'm already seeing an amazing improvement. She's teaching me how to play the violin,and I already started reading music. She's very patient, and is very detailed in her explanations. I'm a 31 year old student, and I'm having a ton of fun learning my first instrument. As soon as my kids are old enough Laura is gonna be their piano, or violin teacher.

We switched to Laura in May for piano lessons after 3 years with another teacher. We are very happy with her teaching approach. She makes it fun for my 2 daughters (10 & 8) and yet they are learning a lot. I noticed that my girls practice more during the week and looks forward to their weekly lesson with Laura. She comes to our house too which is very convenient.

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

Holly S.

Verified review

After just my first lesson with Larry, I know that under his instruction my guitar playing will develop significantly. I am an intermediate player that feels stuck, needing help to get to the next level. Larry listened to my playing, listened to my goals, and in just that first lesson, convinced me that he could help me. He is an amazing musician, with an incredible amount of both performing and teaching experience. He can help all levels of musicians, and can explain theory and technique in a way that is not too much for you to absorb. I cannot wait to get a few months of lessons under my belt with him!

Started learning the piano last year at the young age of 57. Bought a inexpensive upright and a couple of books. Did the youtube thing also. Didn't have cash for lessons.(or maybe just didn't want to pay for them).Anyway, a year later i honestly felt i could only go so far without personal direction. Finding this website I stumbled upon Maria. I have completed five lesson now. At first i was completely uncomfortable trying to play in front of her. She reassured me that this was normal. Her professional demeanor helped me feel at ease. Theory wise she explains things in a way that i can pick up on in mins.( sometimes i couldn't even find ans on the internet). I always leave her with a sense of confidence. She seems to know how to push you just enough to excel to the next step. Never ever any pressure. Marie picks up on your weaknesses and targets them. As you can tell from my review i feel very lucky to have found her. I look forward to continuing my weekly lessons. Marie was born to teach. FIVE STARS across the board.

Maria is the most thorough, pleasant, and knowledgeable private music teacher I've ever taken lessons from. I leave each piano lesson with a more comprehensive understanding of notes, of rhythms, of musicality, but most importantly, of myself.

WHAT A TERRIFIC TEACHER. Sometimes, educators who have been teaching for a while forget what it's like to be the "learner" and can in turn be condescending, impatient, and unwilling to simplify difficult concepts for their students. JOE, on the other hand, was PROFESSIONAL, PATIENT, and PLEASANT. When explaining certain musical concepts to me, he explained it in my language. He encouraged me to ask as many questions as i could come up with; no question was off limits. He tailored the music lesson to my skill set, and even provided study material for me to work with in between our one-on-one lessons. I am excited again about playing piano and learning how to read music!!!!

Dan has done a great job with my daughter, starting when she first sat down at the piano 6 years ago. He's taught her how to play the piano now and for the future- meaning proper hand position, practice habits and understanding the process. He has suggested appropriate music for her to learn and helped her with pieces of her choosing. She has progressed beautifully and has mastered a variety of easier to difficult pieces. His patience and sense of humor have no doubt helped her along!

I came to Dan Shaw as an intermediate level, older adult student. Dan is very flexible in working on specific musical styles of interest to me. He teaches in a confident and friendly manner, with good results advancing my piano technique and knowledge of music theory. At every lesson Dan offers interesting insights that open my eyes and ears to the musicality of a score and to emotions buried in the sounds of a composition. I highly recommend studying with Dan. -----M.Z.

Dan is an outstanding piano teacher. As an adult student, I was particularly interested in finding an instructor who could help me understand both piano technique and music theory. Dan frequently made keen insights into how music works its special magic, which made taking lessons from him an extremely rewarding and enriching experience. Highly recommended!

When looking for classical piano lessons for our child, like all parents, we were concerned that she would not only receive great instruction and an appreciation for great music, it needed to be an enriching and enjoyable experience overall. Well with David Gleba we have found just that. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he is kind, patient, light-hearted-just a tremendous person. He is an exceptional musician providing an extraordinary experience for our child. We could not be happier and are so glad we found David Gleba. We highly recommend him!

Our son took classical piano lessons with Mr. Gleba for a number of years. A very talented pianist and composer, Mr. Gleba has a particularly good way with kids - makes piano interesting and fun, with a wicked sense of humor, but teaches in a true classical style. We highly recommend Mr. Gleba to anybody old or young who wants an accomplished and talented piano teacher.

Our daughter enjoyed many years of lessons on the piano with David Gleba. He is an excellent instructor, punctual, and instilled in her a deep love and appreciation for classical piano music. The pieces that he chose for her to practice were a;ways lovely to listen to as parents, but also fun for her to play as a student. We highly recommend this exceptional teacher.

After studying piano for several years with teacher who focused on music theory I had attained a high level of theoretical knowledge, but still could play the piano well. I had a friend whose son had studied with Jeff and was able to play professionally. When I started with Jeff I told him that I wanted to focus on technique and play 'pretty" music. We did just that, with him arranging songs that fit my level, customized for me. I had another problem, I spend five months a year in California, and was unable to find a suitable teacher. Jeff used his considerable computer expertise to set up lessons on Skype(Skype was in its infancy in 2004). Those lessons are as good as the ones I take at his studio. Working with Jeff opened the door to a greater appreciation of classical music, and knowledge of the great composers. We also did Pop, Rock and Jazz tunes. After all this time I have yet to outpace his teaching skills. Jeff specializes i teaching youngsters, but also has many seniors, like myself. I highly recommend him for students at all levels.

Jeff Baker has been my daughter's piano teacher since she was 8 years old. She is now a senior in high school and only wishes that she had more time for piano. Regardless, we are so thankful that she has such a lasting, positive connection to the piano and we owe that to Jeff. There a million words to describe Jeff. The ones that stick out the most are patient, encouraging, flexible, warm and enthusiastic. I highly recommend him!

I have an 8 year old daughter that was learning Piano and I have sensed pretty quickly that she is talented and needs the proper guidance. We looked around for a teacher that can take her to the next level. I found Jeff and today, a year later – I can really notice the difference. He has his way with kids and is capable of challenging them at the same time. Strongly recommend!

My experiences at Aysgarth Piano Studio are truly amazing! Ms.Kalt is a pleasure to collaborate and work with. I encourage you to take lessons from her because I guarantee you WILL get your money's worth. She is a talented woman who is devoted to teaching the piano. When I started taking lessons at the age of seven, I only had a basic knowledge of the piano and music. Without the help of Ms.Kalt, I would never have been the pianist I am today! Now, I'm eleven years old and have learned to play the Clementi Sonatina, a Bach Prelude and many more! She has changed the way I think about music and the piano. I continue to take lessons and won't quit. She has been an inspiration to me and other students. Overall, I rate Ms.Kalt ten of ten. This is because of her amazing efforts she puts into teaching of us students. Ms.Kalt is the first teacher I highly recommend because of her amazing integrity and effort she puts into teaching us students. I hope you find this review helpful and wish to see you taking lessons from Ms.Kalt!

I decided to fulfill my dream of learning how to play the piano properly with a good teacher. I found Pam on Thumbtack and she has been fantastic for my adult piano lessons. I am 39 years old with a musical background that dates very far back in the day (high school), and she taught me the basics and challenged me beyond what I thought I was capable of. She is patient but strict, and emphasizes technique in a way that I find to be so helpful to prevent bad habits from starting early. Pam is a devoted teacher who pours herself into each of her lessons for all of her students. I have been learning from her for the past 6 months and plan to stick with her as long as she's willing to teach me.

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
