When I came to Dave Lockwood for guitar lessons, I was struggling in kind of a self-taught rut. I could play chords for a lot of songs, but I didn't know the theory or anything you would call "advanced". Dave's methods show you how to understand the fretboard and why certain notes and chords go together. He is really helping me become a complete player. Mostly though, Dave is a very patient teacher. He doesn't mind going over the same material with you until you understand it and he'll take different approaches until you get it. I really appreciate this about his teaching methods.
She is very nice and easy to talk to. She believes in what she teaches. She is very optimistic and helps me with my confidence. She worked with me at my home. My lessons are 30 minutes but a good thirty minutes. Her quality of work is good.
Cool guy and super knowledgeable about music. His lessons go much deeper than just learning songs, he's going to teach you the theory behind them and how to understand/deconstruct them, which I really appreciate. You really get a sense that he has a plan for you to improve, he keeps track of your progress and has a program for you as a player. I also like the informal atmosphere, he's easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend him to any player looking to improve.
Taking violin lessons (and now viola) with Paige. It's been a much better experience for me than my first time trying to learn violin. I appreciate that she's willing to adapt her lessons to my own goals and also select music that is actually pleasing to listen to even for an absolute beginner. As some other reviews mentioned, she's also very quick to reply to any messages.
We are very happy with mr James. He is great with our kids. The kids actually look forward to their lessons especially my 4year old daughter.
I have just started piano lessons as an older adult. I am very impressed with Teal Justice's ability to adapt her instruction to my specific needs, and look forward to a productive learning experience.
Awesome teacher!! I have been taking lessons for five years with Eric and can honestly say that I would not be where I am as a guitarist today if I hadn't. As a teacher, Eric helps to explain not only "how" to play, but goes further to explain the "why" behind it all, teaching the "music theory" behind what is being played in a way that is both understandable and applicable to becoming a better musician. Starting out as just a beginner, I knew that there was always something new that I could learn from Eric, from learning how to play my favorites songs, to being taught new chord structures and scale concepts, I always had something cool, exciting, and challenging to go home and practice. I would highly recommend Eric as a teacher for anyone looking to become a better guitarist and musician.
I started taking acting lessons from Michael in January for my college auditions. He has been amazing in helping me prepare. I had 8 auditions and I have so far been accepted into 3 of them! I recommend him if you are interested in taking acting lessons or even voice!
Every review says as much about the person reviewing as it does the business reviewed. Olga is a conscientious and professional piano and voice teacher and I highly recommend her. A bad review is telegraphing that the person writing it has specific things that set them off. Sometimes these are fair and then the review reads as sensible. Typing a bad review in ALL CAPS is not sensible. The person comes across as obnoxious and at best, as fussy when focused on things most people consider unfair, like free lessons. Unless it is someone who shares the same issue, when someone like that writes a bad review the only person he or she is pushing away is someone LIKE THEM. So in that respect, they're doing the place a favor because they are aborting another bad review. Most of us read multiple reviews and can sort the rational voices from the angry ones. I am a parent of two boys and I have to say that $20 for quality one-on-one (private) 30 minute music lessons is too cheap. This is especially true if the teacher has several university degrees. Yes Olga gives us a discounted rate for my younger son but I do not expect her to teach for free. I am yet to see a teacher giving a $20 private lesson and free lesson for the 2nd child. To do it once perhaps, but that deal would be too good to be true to sustain long term. Not only would the teacher soon go out of business but it is unfair to the parents who are paying a higher but fair rate. In this day and age that is not a fair price for a qualified music teacher. However, $20 for a group lesson of 4 or 5 kids would make sense. My boys were able to read notes from their first piano lesson and are able to interpret a piece of music. Their lessons include scales, arpeggios, classic pieces, aural testing, sight reading and music theory. She is currently preparing my eldest son for the grade 1 Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Exam. I can say she has gone above and beyond what previous piano teachers have delivered, even extending the lesson time by 5 or 10 minutes if needed. She was more focused on my boys understanding the concept than anything else. In fact and she spaced our lessons so they do not overlap giving me ample time to discuss any concerns. Our experience has been that we get more than what we pay for at each lesson. No one should have to work for free. The effort Olga makes in teaching our boys correct finger posture, rhythm and theory is incredible. She is great with kids and I could not ask for a better teacher.
Voice lessons with Elideusa are wonderful! She is so patient and encouraging. I gained a solid understanding of vocal anatomy and technique.
My daughter takes private piano lessons with Nancy. I am ver impressed by Nancy's way of teaching kids piano, she's very patient and caring. She's very thorough when introducing new songs. Nancy made learning piano fun for my 8 years old daughter.
My daughter really enjoys taking piano lessons with Mateo. She is really interested in learning the piano and I believe most of that has to do with Mateo's encouragement and engagement level during the lessons. Mateo seems to really care about his students and according to my daughter, he is "really funny".
My daughter Gabby joined the Ugarte Studio in 2010, to get voice and piano lessons from Pia. In this five year period, she has blossomed into a a stage performer, very capable of singing in character, and ready join the performance world in NYC
Kris is an excellent teacher, professional and great with my child. My child is now learning at a faster rate and enjoying piano much more under his instruction. Lessons are super convenient since he comes to our home. Also, his fee is very reasonable for the level of knowledge he had and that my child is receiving.
I thought he explained things clearly. I liked what I walked away with in the first lesson. I look forward to more lessons. I think he's an amazing teacher.
My son has been receiving piano lessons for @ 1 month. His teacher, Ben Phillips, is great. The lessons are fun and easy going, and he really looks forward to the evenings that he has lessons. I don't even have to bug him to practice. It has been great!
I have taken guitar lessons before, but I wasn't learning or moving forward at the pace I wanted. He played guitar the whole time and seemed detached, annoyed and uninterested in helping me. He really didn't seem passionate about his lessons/teaching methods and what I learned over time. So I finally decided to try again and I took guitar lessons from Cam about a year ago and it's been the most rewarding experience.
Our family has known Lyndsay for over 2 overs. Both of our children (ages 9 and 6) took piano lessons with Lyndsay beginning almost 3 years ago. The progress our children made FAR exceeded our expectations! They always seemed to be the best taught children in recitals as well. Lyndsay made learning piano fun and allowed our children to choose what music they wanted to learn. Lyndsay is friendly, kind, gentle, positive, encouraging, patient, and so, so sweet. She is able to connect with her students and customize their piano lessons according to their strengths. She turned our children into confident, self-motivated piano players. I highly recommend Lyndsay as a piano teacher and if she didn't move, we would have used her forever! We are envious of future families who can experience just how great she is!!! Carrie Gallacher
Ashley has been working with my daughter for almost a year now. My daughter enjoys her singing lessons immensely and has learned so much. Ashley is great to work with and the results have been amazing.
I've been taking piano lessons with Canda for a little over a year now & couldn't be more thankful to have such a friendly & constructive teacher. Shes very flexible & understanding, yet extremely punctual & professional. I really dont think I could've gotten a better experience with anyone else!
We teach on pianos in our studio. Keyboards are great to learn the basics but the emotion of music is best served on an actual piano
