As an adult who never had piano lessons and doesn't play any instruments (so far) I think Broderson Music Studios provides excellent instruction. I am still early in the process, but have found Gary to be very encouraging and patient. He is able to answer questions in a way that is clear and understandable without ever feeling "dumbed down". I look forward to learning more!
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 music instructor. I have had 3 sessions so far and feel like I have learned so much from her. I can't wait to see how much more I will improve in the next 3 sessions. I'm glad I signed up for singing lessons at the Alexander Music Studio!
I have gone to pat for 7 years and he has taught me countless songs, riffs, scales, techniques, and chords and even taught me the bass guitar. He never makes you do anything you don't want so you can learn whatever you want to learn. He's a great guy and I look forward to going to his lessons every week.
Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc. Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result. Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim.
Tommy has been an amazing guitar, bass, and audio engineering teacher. Recently, we've been working together on some college auditions involving jazz bass, which I knew little of in terms of techniques and terminology. With Tommy's help, I've learned what would have taken me forever, and I feel a lot better about the audition process.
Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!
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.
I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.
Great guitar teacher - my 16 year old son likes him and is enjoying learning to play the guitar (two big wins!). Focuses on getting the child 'making music' right from the start so that they start having fun right away and stay thus engaged and interested. Really flexible with scheduling lessons for those of us who are 'calendar-challenged'. I'd highly recommend Joey to others.
My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Mike for the past eight years. The valuable lessons she has learned from Mike while learning to play guitar were applicable to playing violin for her school. Learning how to practice, reading and writing music, playing a song by ear, understanding difficult rhythms, and being exposed to a variety of genres are just a few examples of the valuable lessons she learned over the years. Mike also recorded her playing her grandfather's favorite song so she could give it to him as a gift. My daughter has learned to love music and we have Mike to thank for that. I have also had the pleasure of learning how to play guitar through Mike. We both feel our time with Mike is always well spent.
I've been working with Andy for over a year. He's tried to work with my strengths on bass guitar and provide me with ways to overcome my weaknesses. He teaches in a way that's clear and not overwhelming and what I learn leads somewhere. I would especially recommend Andy for adults because of his patience and willingness to adapt his lessons to me, the person that he's teaching. I'm so looking forward to learning more and playing live.
Kevin is a terrific guitar teacher. He's very knowledgable (classically trained but knows a lot about different musical genres), comes to lessons prepared, and is very conscientious about teaching what I want to learn. I would definitely recommend him to anyone at the beginner / intermediate level.
My name is John. I'm new to Thumbtack, but I'm 22, and I've been playing electric bass for nine years. I've always loved giving lessons. When I first started playing, taking lessons really helped me to appreciate and learn about bass and music in general, and I'd like to help foster that in others who would like to start learning about music. My hours and rates are flexible depending on your situation, so just get in touch with me, and we'll take it from there!
I've studied at two accredited conservatories -- Mcnally Smith College of Music and Berklee School of music. I focused on mastering guitar and piano. Teaching is my passion.
I am a musician, educator and composer. I offer bass/music lessons to all skill levels. My goal is for the student to have an understanding of the music and perform it effortlessly. Most of all, I help share with them the joy and happiness that music has given me over the years.
I am a seasoned musician playing live for over 40 years. My first instrument is bass, but I can also teach beginner guitar, keyboards or how to write your own music on computer using M.I.D.I. (musical instrument digital interface). Do not be fooled by my years, I still play in an extremely high-end rock band, and can play all styles of bass playing. I am patient, friendly, I have a good sense of humor, and I get results. I am a good communicator and I have a method of how to look at your instrument without it intimidating you. Each student has different goals, each one wants to play different music, if you have the desire and willingness to practice, you will see steady progress.
I provide instruction in any guitar instrument at reasonable prices. I have years of experience that I can use to make you the best possible musician.
We offer an affordable guitar, bass, piano, audio recording/production and voice lessons to students of any age! Thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more details.
I have always believed that the pursuit of any discipline in the arts stimulates the imagination, fine tunes motor skills, and is generally good for the soul. Learning a musical instrument can be a wonderfully rewarding experience, regardless of the style of music you pursue. I have been playing guitar for 41 years since I was a lad of 10, and I have been teaching for the last 31 years, offering private lessons at a very affordable price. Now, at age 51, I still genuinely love my craft and enjoy interacting with students of all ages and levels! Lessons are given in the comfort of my home studio. You will learn to read music notation, guitar notation, and tablature. I shall teach you the benefits of music theory, improvisation, and good technique. As you progress, I will help you with learning to master the songs that you want to play.
30 years experience and a passion for all musical styles. Being able to deliver exactly what a student wants (on the spot) while also provide important insights geared towards teaching one "how to fish" (long term self-sufficiency) as opposed to only "receiving a fish" (short term gratification).
