She's so personable and yet so professional at the same time. Her passion for music and singing is undeniable and it shows in her lessons. With just 2 lessons so far, my fiance has noticeably improved vocally.
I would highly recommend Dave Robles for guitar lessons. He taught two of my daughters, from age 6 to age 12. He is both a professional educator and musician. He builds a rapport with the kids, and keeps them interested by letting them have input into the kind of music they're learning. He is reliable and organized, and provided a tabbed binder with sections for notes, theory and music. I recommended Dave to the after school enrichment program at our elementary school because he did such a good job teaching my girls, and I would highly recommend him for all ages.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Pete for about 5 years now. The 5 years that I have been getting lessons have been a really good and I have learned so much about the guitar. Firstly, when I first started I was starting from scratch and had absolutely no idea on how to play. But now im able to play with pretty good speed and keep up with the fast songs. His teaching style I believe is very good and easy to understand, helping you excell in whatever you are doing. And it' not boring at all. Each lesson I have had, I have at least laughed a couple of times. So overall he is a great teacher who I would recommend to anyone if they were looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument he teaches.
Barbara is an excellent musician that pays attention to detail and emphasizes the importance of good training and formal education. She is extremely well versed in vocal training, various types of repertoire, classical and secular styles and piano/accompaniment. She is extremely dedicated and demands excellence and discipline from her students. I would highly recommend her as a music teacher, mentor and vocal coach!
The Rock House School of Music provides a great, casual environment for a musician of any skill level. Any apprehensiveness you have will quickly disappear when you are met with the enthusiasm of everyone at Rock House.
I had been trying to find the right classical guitar teacher for years before taking lessons with Tim. Honestly, I have made more progress in a few months with Tim than I had made in nearly eight years of various other teachers. His love of music and teaching are evident in the fact that he really takes the time to understand your background (musical and otherwise), your musical interests, and your personal goals. He then tailors his approach with each lesson to ensure that you progress steadily as a musician through sound technique and theory rather than simply teaching you how to play songs. I highly recommend Tim to anyone interested in becoming a proficient guitarist in any style.
He has become my daughter's music coach/teacher. He is great! He is really helping her invest her heart back into her music. It warms our heart! Thanks Tommy!❤
Half a year ago when my husband and I were looking for a piano teacher for my 7 year old daughter who has never learned piano before, we were cautious and had quite a few discussions, as we think the first teacher has a big impact on new learners. And we were also a little worried she may find piano boring, which is kind of children's natural attitude toward something they regard as "not fun". We feel very lucky to find David. To say it based on our experience, he is really the best piano and music teacher we could expect. He is excellent in piano skills, and he has a systemic teaching schedule, which makes learning easier for beginners. Even better he is also a composer and he is very knowledgeable in music theory. I really appreciate that my daughter is able to learn how to play piano as well as some level of music theory at a younger age. Furthermore, he is so friendly and humorous, he has tremendous patience with kids, the lessons are so fun, and that goes really well with my daughter, who now thinks David is her teacher as well as friend. And he really cares for his little student! That being said, he is also a strict teacher with high expectations from his students. We are really happy of the progress my daughter has made in the past a few month, and that she is so interested in piano and keeps learning. We heartfully recommend David as piano/music teacher for similar-aged children.
Dana has been an excellent teacher for my 15 and 13 year olds. My children recently wanted to become more focused on their singing ability in musical theater and Dana has given them the confidence they needed. She is great!
I labored under the delusion that music was beyond my grasp, apparently not true. I know this only because of this particular music teacher. She has taught me things about instruments that I had no idea existed. She is disarming , kind and considerate. if you put in the effort she will put the effort in on you. she will push your limits to show you how much you have actually learned and bolster your confidence by doing so. I have never been so happy with a decision as the one I made choosing her as my teacher.
I loved my experience with Billing's Music Studio! The environment was very comfortable which is important for a nervous person like me. The instructor was very patient and informative. The lessons are tailored to the student's individual needs and goals. I highly recommend.
My daughterhas been taking lessons with Johnathan for 6/7 months now. We came from out if state where she had been with another instructor for about a year and a half. We are so glad that we found Jonathan! My daughter is 6, and she really loves music so we did not want the old strict standard teacher who might end up making her hate the piano. Jonathan is amazing with kids and also an extremely talented pianist. He is so patient and calm, and brings a natural enjoyment to the lessons. He plays duets with my daughter during lesson (even with my other kid jumping around!) which I feel brings an important depth to my daughter's understanding of music. I really feel that with Jonathan as our teacher, my daughter will continue to love and enjoy music.
I am a history professor at CCSU, and Matt came to my attention through the recommendation of our Music faculty. Prof. Linda Laurent knew I was looking for a student or former student who could teach a 50+ history geek who hadn’t played in over forty years. She immediately responded that Matt was my person. Matt is an excellent teacher, in part because he is a good listener. We started in January, and before we did anything he asked what my goals were, how quickly I wanted to move along, and why I wanted to learn to play. He then had me play a little of what I had been tinkering with and we set up a plan. Knowing that I never intend to audition for an orchestra, but that I was hoping to use music as recreation, relaxation, and as a means to enjoy learning something new, Matt then structured our lessons. We meet every second week for an hour. During the lessons, Matt is great. We first talk about what I got to, what I enjoyed, what went well, and where I had trouble. He then has me play a bit (only stopping me when I’m WAY off track), and then he reminds me about technique or form. We use a couple of books, but he does more than just “assign” the next piece. We talk about what skills and methods the piece is helping me learn. He asks how I practice a new piece, and then I attempt to learn something new while he is there so he can watch my process. His corrections are clear and helpful, never judgmental. If I am not getting something, he will play a bit to show me or have me try other ways to figure it out. I’ve especially enjoyed his explanations about music theory. He gives a very clear explanation of chords, scales, and why certain notes go together. I can then hear that (surprisingly!) in my own halting attempts. That’s cool. This approached has worked for me. I’m sure Matt will have a different, and equally effective, approach for a young child just learning or a high school student hoping for a music scholarship. I can't recommend him more highly.
Dennis is extremely helpful in teaching to the student's needs. Whatever you are interested in learning he is able to give great insight, as he has a wide knowledge of music and guitar. He is also very friendly, and will take time to make sure you are able to understand what he teaches.
I hired Golden Scroll Soloists for a corporate event and they were AMAZING! They had a huge selection of music which was all fantastic and everyone I spoke to within their group was so professional! My guests loved it! I'm hiring them again to play at my upcoming wedding and I can't wait!
Excellent!! I would recommend the music store to everyone who need a dependable professional guy for their piano.
Chris is a great music teacher and his rates are affordable. My nine year old really likes him and looks forward to the lessons.
I think that you are a great teacher. You help me understand what I need to learn,and what I need to work on. You are definitely helping me succeed.
Chris can teach both drums (drum kit) and various percussion instruments (tympani, tuned percussion, etc.). I am taking lessons from Chris mainly to learn basic rock drumming on a standard drum kit. He is a wonderful teacher. He'll give you valuable lessons not only on playing the drum kit, but also on good drumming fundamentals, such as proper stick grip, how to position your hands on the stick, and stick control, speed and independence. He will also instruct you in good habits and tips for practicing the drums between lessons. I very highly recommend Chris as a drum and percussion teacher.
He provided private alto sax lessons to my daughter for 7 years. She is an exceptional musician, and he played a very significant role.
I hired musicians from EKM to sing at my wedding ceremony and was absolutely delighted that they were also able to bring a string quartet to my cocktail hour and play for my reception. It saved me the hassle of hiring three acts and they did all of it for a very fair price. They also kept in contact with me and invited me to meet their performers before the ceremony so I would be completely at ease. They were fun and personable and I would work with them again.
