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.

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.

Laury is an awesome voice instructor. She is very knowledgeable and willing to share her vast experience. As a young singer preparing to study voice at Boston University in the fall, her focus on maintaining a healthy voice is one of the main reasons I chose to study with her. The fact that she is also a BU alum is an added bonus!

I can't say enough good things about Barbara Wyton at Continuo. She matched my daughter with a Trumpet teacher that was perfect for her and my daughter is still taking lessons from him two years later. Home lessons have worked out very well for us. I recommend Continuo to everyone I know.

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!

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!

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.

Dave's been very patient with my highly unpredictable schedule, and he's quick to point out any progress I've made, especially when I feel like I haven't made any. I really needed to start from the basics, but we've been able to move faster with my lessons than I expected to. I've made much more progress with these lessons than I ever would have on my own!

Katie teaches out of her very nice home in a quiet neighborhood. Her studio location is convenient and easily reached off of I-95. After one meeting, I can say that Katie is an excellent musician and teacher, and, thankfully for me, is very patient. Her observations and suggestions seem to be spot on and helpful. I’m looking forward to studying with Katie for some time to come.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is CPR training?

Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

What does a Spanish tutor do?

The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

What is first aid training?

With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

  • Asthma attack
  • Anaphylaxis
  • Burns
  • Choking
  • Diabetic emergencies
  • External bleeding
  • Heart attack
  • Poisoning
  • Neck, head or back injury
  • Stroke
  • Seizure

First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

What do you learn in a first aid course?

First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

  • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
  • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
  • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
  • First-, second- and third-degree burns
  • Poisoning
  • Choking
  • Bites and stings
  • Hypothermia or frostbite
  • Shock and seizures
