I'm so happy that I chose to learn CPR, AED, and First Aid lessons from Ricardo Camacho Jr. He was very professional through out the whole lesson. For every single question my friend and I asked he had a answer to all of them. I felt very comfortable in the space where we learned everything. The videos that we watched was a lot of fun to watch, I never felt bored at all, I was very intrigued and interested in all of the videos we watched. I highly recommend everyone to take him. Thank you Ricardo.
So glad I found David on Thumbtack! I've only had a few lessons with him so far and have seen results with bettering my voice. He is very patient and makes each lesson exciting. Beginner to advanced, he knows his stuff!
I have been taking jazz guitar lessons from Dom for almost a year and a half now. His particular approach to teaching music is very refreshing from all others I've encountered before. Dom has a certain way of finding a student's particular sound on their instrument and personalizing each lesson to better bring out this sound. My experience so far has been completely positive and I look forward to more lessons.
I have thoroughly enjoyed by Spanish lessons with Gloria. She is well organised and structured in her approach to teaching which is so helpful especially when you are a beginner and trying to grasp the basics. Each lessons has been uniquely customized to my level and progress. Gloria is extremely patient and finds ways to keep the lessons fun and interesting while at the same time making them challenging enough to enable you to progress. Gloria is an excellent teacher and I cant recommend her enough!
Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!
David is a fantastic teacher. I came to him with a difficult task. I had to learn how to play guitar well for a performance, with 2 weeks to prepare. I had no previous guitar experience. He not only taught me patiently, he also helped me put together compositions for the show. He truly went above and beyond as a teacher. He is extremely attentive and very adaptable to what you want as a student. I liked him so much I continued with lessons after the show!
Serge is an extremely skilled top notch coach and amazing instructor that genuinely cares about his students. His training sessions are very challenging and rewarding. My strength and endurance levels have greatly improved in such a short time since training with Serge. He has patience and will take the time to go over moves as many times as you need, in a supportive and encouraging way. You will sweat, train hard and learn a lot from each lesson. My training sessions were by far the BEST that I've ever experienced. What marks a phenomenal instructor is his ability to teach in a particular way that impacts every aspect of a students life, and that is what Serge has done for me and I'm truly thankful. Overall, I would highly recommend Serge to all without any hesitation. Josette-
I took voice lessons with Mara for about a year and only stopped because my work schedule was making it difficult to meet regularly. I can't rave enough about her patience, outgoing personality, and knowledge. She had this way of making me comfortable from day one, which speaks volumes since I had a bad experiencing singing in front of others as a child. I could not recommend Mara enough as a voice teacher--she makes lessons something you look forward to each and every week! I wouldn't take lessons with anyone else.
I just started working with Pamela a few weeks ago, but so far in my experience I find her to be a patient, kind and incredibly knowledgable presence in the room. Thanks to her established and tailored exercises, I begin to hear a difference in my voice! She's also helped me to choose fresh material that highlights my sound, and helped me to feel more confident. I definitely plan to keep attending these lessons!
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
Just for background information, I took lessons with Christine for about 4 years throughout high school with a focus in classical voice. I currently still study voice in college and I can honestly say I have the most helpful foundation I could have ever asked for for that. Christine instills a very strong vocal foundation both artistically and technically. She doesn't dumb anything down, but is absolutely understandable even for beginners. She is also incredibly knowledgeable as a musician, which is enormously helpful because with each new piece she adds to your repertoire, she also builds theoretical and artistic knowledge which helps you be able to perform other pieces later on. So I went into a lot of later repertoire having a solid understanding of the purpose and context of the music I was singing. Also, she never loses sight of the artistic aspects of singing, never letting pronunciation, oddly placed breaths, facial expressions, body language, misunderstanding of text, etc, slide. This seems kind of standard, but it's actually a really professional way of treating your students and made me personally, approach my music with as much professionalism as I had developed. I also found it extremely helpful that she explained why she did asked me to do certain things or ignore other things because, especially for beginners, classical training can seem like a black box and occasionally feels like it's taking you backwards. Having those explanations assuaged a lot of that fear. In my experience, I felt a lot of changes both explicitly and implicitly. I felt my voice grow, in range and strength, and my technical foundation and knowledge are both fairly solid. I stopped fidgeting and found a tremendously improved focus and composure while performing (a big problem for me). My Italian pronunciation is actually quite good now. My ear and internal tempo are both MUCH better. My theoretical knowledge is a lot more in depth than it was, (kind of a bonus because that's not her job). And my contextual knowledge of music is also at a much higher level than it would have been otherwise. Overall, Christine is a really talented teacher and musician who provides a lot of understandable but high level information, impeccable and PRECISE technique, and an artistic but academic approach to music and singing which lays a perfect philosophy in her students for continuing to grow as musicians.
Laura is an exceptional tutor. She is highly patient and utilizes various learning modalities to help a student absorb and retain the Spanish language. Her methods work on comprehension, reading, writing and speaking. She spends time working on the diction and pronunciation of words. She customizes the lessons to your individual learning needs. Laura is also working on fine tuning some bad habits that I picked up over the years which is helping me re-learn the proper usage of the language. It is a process yet she will make it fun and engaging.
Josh is clearly very skilled with a guitar and has taught many students before. He will tailor the lessons towards what you would most want to learn, and in that sense he is very flexible. He is extremely friendly and punctual. Even in my first lesson he was able to help my technical ability improve dramatically, and I'm much more confident of being able to pick up new songs quickly. I look forward every week to the lessons.
Beatrice is very engaging and dedicated teacher. Our lessons are informative and helpful in building my beginner skills with various methods combining grammar basics, reading, writing and speaking. I highly recommend Beatrice for those who are looking to start learning or improve their language skills.
I've really enjoyed working with Dave so far. I felt like I made substantive progress after just a single hour, and I'm excited for future lessons!
I'm really learning a lot with Viky. She has the fundamentals down and is able to teach them. I'm really enjoying the lessons
Steve is a really great teacher! He takes into consideration what I want to learn and what my goals are. His lessons have a perfect balance between learning music theory and basic skills, and working on songs that I’ve always wanted to learn. I feel like I am making progress on the guitar and learning a lot from each lesson. Also, he is flexible with scheduling which has been really convenient for me! I highly recommend Steve as a teacher!
Very much enjoy working with Drew. He's done an amazing job of planning lessons around my interests/level. He's very professional and patient to boot.
Joyce is truly an amazing teacher. My son has studied trumpet with her for four years and she consistently strives to make the lessons interesting and fun for him - not always an easy task! He has learned a great deal from her and improved tremendously during the time she's been his teacher. I would highly recommend her!
Victoria is a wonderful teacher and person. We started understanding and combining simple phrases while travelling in Spanish speaking country after couple of months of her lessons. And after a year I already had working knowledge of Spanish.
Rachel is instructing my 10 year old special needs child. She is patient and gentle with him and he adores her. I would recommend her highly.
