Taking voice lessons with Naomi for almost four years has been a life changing experience for me. Her instruction and knowledge has helped me accomplish things I didn’t even know were possible for me to achieve. I continue my lessons because I know she has much more to share with me and I have so much more to gain from her teaching. I believe working with Naomi will further develop my skills and her guidance will only help me improve my talent.

As an experienced actor, I know the importance of broadening my skills and looked to Naomi to help me begin to develop my "singing muscles" to reach my goal of having a serviceable singing voice that plays well in live musical theater. My lessons are ongoing, and Naomi is perceptive, understanding and brilliant. I am making progress, and intend to keep working with Naomi for a long time. I highly recommend her!

Naomi is a real gem! I first came to her about 5 years ago looking to improve my voice. She took the time to evaluate what my strengths and weaknesses were and was able to structure her lessons around getting the results that I wanted. She helped give me the confidence that I needed to become a better singer and for that I am truly grateful!

Vocal lessons are something that I have never done before. I started out as an absolute beginner, and I can't be more excited that I am learning from Susan. There's such comfort in learning from someone so experienced and passionate, who does not compromise when it comes to teaching what needs to be understood. Not only does Susan have a great ear and is very focused, but she keeps you on track when you start to get distracted or flustered. I am so thankful that when I meet with Susan I am a guest in her home rather than a "customer", as I imagine other atmospheres tend to feel. This is something I look forward to weekly! Highly recommended!

Right away Susan was open to what I was looking for in a music lesson and what I was looking for in a teacher. She not only has wonderful techniques to show you in order to open up your voice but she has a wonderful personality and is willing to work with you in a positive way. She has encouraged me to work hard and has been very helpful in finding the music that appeals to me and my taste. I couldn't be happier with Susan as my teacher and I would recommend her to anyone that wants to improve their singing abilities.

Ms. Moore has been nothing but kind and welcoming to us. She has great patience with my son, who was diagnosed with ADHD. Despite his wiggling, he enjoys Ms. Moore's vocal lessons and is always eager to start. She is very engaged and involved, even before and after lessons, as well as forthright, yet polite and and respectful. We have the utmost respect for her, and she deserves commitment and respect for her time. Love her!

I spoke with Dennis extensively before my first lesson and he assured me that he would be able to teach me how to play guitar. Dennis informed me that I would know the fret board and would know a song by the end of my first lesson. He asked me to give him eight lessons and he would prove to me that he can teach me to play the guitar. I was very hesitant in hiring Dennis because of all the past experiences I have had with other instructors. So, I decided to give Dennis a shot at this challenge. Dennis will be my final guitar instructor. If he can't teach me no one can. I have had 6+ guitar instructors since I started playing and taking guitar lessons as a New Year's resolution in 2016. I have struggled in this journey and I started to think that maybe playing guitar just wasn't for me. The time and money I was spending with other instructors and saw no progression was making me think this way. I have been playing and taking lessons for over a year now and still do not know one complete song from beginning to end. I have always wanted to play the guitar and want to possibly make this a second income source by playing for the public. Dennis arrived at my home for my first lesson this past Tuesday. He introduced himself and is very laid back and friendly but professional. We immediately went to work and he informed me again of what we were going to accomplish in that first lesson. That is exactly what happened! By the end of my first lesson I knew the fret board and learned how to play the song Knockin on Heaven's Door. He taught me more in the first hour than other instructors did in several lessons. I felt like a weight had been lifted off of me, because he made me feel like I can accomplish this journey of learning to play the guitar. Dennis does charge a higher price per lesson then any of my other instructors and his technique is wellworth it! Especially when you are in the comfort of your own home and who doesn't already feel comfortable with where they live? I know that I have only had one lesson with Dennis but he is encouraging and has excited me again about playing the guitar. Dennis delivered what he said he was going to do and that means a lot to me! As I told Dennis in one of our initial conversations, he will be my last guitar instructor. Because he will either teach me or guitar really isnt for me...

Dennis is helping me greatly. Although I've only had two lessons, I've learned more in these two lessons than I was able to teach myself in 6 months. Dennis motivates me to practice and I thoroughly enjoy the time spent with Dennis during each lesson.

Deborah Cain was extremely pleasant, hospitable and very supportive & patient with my attempt at learning how to play the piano. She was so very helpful in discussing how I need to progress and provided me with a number of suggestions.....including letting me know that I need to practice, on my own, for a minimum of 30 minutes a day. She wasn't demanding, at all. I was so pleased with Debbie, that I signed-up for 12 more private lessons; one per week. Piano is a really tough instrument to play. There's so much to learn and comprehend, and Debbie takes the time to teach you the things you need to know. She doesn't make me nervous. Her calm disposition and patience is a great thing to see in a teacher. She makes me feel very comfortable, and she knows what she's doing!! I'm so glad I found her through Thumbtack, and I'm so glad that she offers very reasonable and affordable rates. You'll definitely want to get in touch with her; especially if you live in the NW Tampa area. I'm sure glad I did!!! Thanks, Debbie, for your patience, you ability to teach music, timing, theory and all that other "stuff" that goes with learning how to play the piano. I really appreciate you and your skills, and I'm so glad we met. Also, her 1st lesson is "complimentary"!! How nice is that!!! :-)

My son started piano lessons with Mrs. Cain when he was five years old. She is a wonderful, experienced, teacher that cares for her students and their musical development. My son absolutely loves her and I would recommend her for anyone that is looking for a knowledgable piano instructor. She is patient and easy to work with! I have even taken lessons from her myself (an adult). Thanks to her for years as a committed teacher!!!!!

Deborah is a very nice teacher. She has shown so much interest in helping me reach my goal of composing music. I'm very excited to have her as my new piano teacher. Her husband is very charismatic as well and contributes to the relaxing atmosphere at Cain Coaching Piano Studio. Her lessons are so affordable, I'm very relieved to be able to explore music and follow my passion. Highly recommend!

Rob does a great job making my bass lessons fun and engaging, and is great at matching the material to the individual student. I really like that he writes things down for you to reference later and answers questions well. He's definitely taken the intimidation out of learning an instrument. Overall, he's very professional and is a teacher I'd recommend to anyone.

Ryan has taught my husband for the last 2 years. When my husband started, he had no previous guitar experience and no musical theory. It's really amazing how far he has come in that time under Ryan's teachings. He wanted to learn guitar all his life and just gets better every day. Thanks Ryan!

We are thrilled with our son's music lessons at Maestro Maines Studio! Our son has had both drum lessons and steel pans lessons, and he has enjoyed both! In fact, he loves the steel pans class so much that he looks forward to that class all week. As a homeschool family, I am thrilled that homeschool classes will be added starting in January, along with a group steel pans class. Yippee! It's businesses like this that make me love our community. Give it a try! Your kiddo(s) will probably love it!

I had always wanted to take voice lessons but due to the expense, it was something I had never pursued. It was only when I was cast in a community theatre musical production for a character outside of my vocal range that I decided to pursue the opportunity. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to study with Joe. He is very passionate about his craft. He is knowledgeable and efficient. His method of teaching is extremely comprehensive and with each lesson, I learned more and more. Over the course of our few weeks together, I expanded my vocal range and gained the confidence I needed to perform perfectly. My voice was noticeably stronger- not only to me, but to my family and my musical theater peers. He worked hard to accommodate my schedule and never hesitated to put in additional time. Recently, I was cast as a lead in another community theatre musical production. While my voice is pretty, I am confident that my ability to secure this role was because I had spent time working with Joe. I will continue to work with him throughout my community theatre endeavors and would recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their vocal range and/or skills. He truly is a wonderful teacher and this review does not do him justice.

My 9 year old daughter had never picked up a guitar before taking lessons with Brenden. She's doing great and is falling in love with it already. I'm so impressed that he's not just teaching her how to play the notes but everything from good posture to proper positioning to reading music. Brenden is personable, patient and professional (alliteration not intended). I would recommend him to anyone wanted to learn from scratch or hone your craft. He's a great teacher.

Brendon is very professional in his work. From the very start he adapted his lessons and helped me become a better guitar player. Brendon helped me figure out the direction I wanted to go with guitar and I'm happier than ever with his decision. I've been playing for almost a year now and I'm so happy with my progress! I highly recommend you take lessons with him.

I learned a lot very quickly with Brendon's help. He helped me with practicing how to read music, learning how to play each note, understanding how to read a guitar tab and even taught me how to play parts from songs I chose. Working with him was really beneficial to me in learning guitar.

Sarah and her husband sang a duet for my daughters wedding ceremony. I can't not begin to explain how beautiful they sang the song. I was very nervous hiring someone that I had never met before. However, Sarah and Tyler were so professional and very, very sweet. She emailed me her suggestions on what she thought would sound the best for the song I selected. Her suggestions were perfect. All the guests were talking at the dinner reception about how much they loved the music.

I try to teach myself guitar through the internet... and I think it back fired. Rob was able to work with me with my odd mixed background. He has the great ability to work with you and utilize what you already know to help learning new material. We got started by reworking some foundational issue and some music theories. Then we added some finger exercises to build up strength and dexterity. We also set some short term and long term goals to work towards and look forward to. To top it off, he is able to work around my miserable schedule and is very flexible to accommodate my needs. I should have just saved myself the headaches and take some lessons right away instead of trusting the internet (never trust the internet). Highly recommend.

I came to American rock school as an adult 38-year-old wanting to get better at playing guitar. I had taken lessons from five teachers over the previous four years. I thought that basic chords and scales were about all I would ever be able to play. I am not a musically talented person, I just enjoy music. American rock school has taught me to hammer on, pull off, bend strings, add tremolo, and play most every chord shape on the guitar. Now I can jam along with all my favorite songs which is something I thought I would never be able to do. The school also puts students together to form bands, it gives kids the opportunity to feel like a rockstar and play on stage, they even get some public events.

Mr. Erik was my vocal coach for over three and a half years. Throughout those years he taught me three different languages (Italian, German, French), basic piano, singing techniques, performance quality, and much more. He always keeps the lessons fun and interesting and finds ways to help you better understand music from both a technical and emotional standpoint. Working with Mr. Erik made me a more confident and technical singer. He helped prepare me for college and all of my auditions for musicals. He also sparked my interest in classical singing which is something I will always be thankful for because it made me a more well rounded singer. Mr. Erik is a phenomenal teacher and person who has so much to offer anyone he works with.
