I know Mrs Somogyi for over 2 year. She's a wonderful dedicated person to her students and she has a great personality. I can see progress with my daughter from each lesson. I recommend her to any parent looking to place their child in music related lessons.

I have two children that take lessons with Ryan and they are progressing very well. I wish I had kept with my lessons, but back in the day Soccer and Hockey were more important. I would recommend him to anyone. the 4 stars is merely because he is not finished yet.. :)

I'm currently taking lessons with Jeff and he's an excellent teacher. I'm practicing songs I never thought I'd ever be playing on the guitar. Everything he teaches is easy to understand and you see the improvements in no time! The lessons are fun and time seems to just fly by. I was nervous about learning how to play but after a couple of lessons with Jeff, I'm not nervous at all! I look forward to what I'm going to learn next after every lesson.

I started piano lessons with Melrick around April 2016. He has made the investment very worthwhile. He is knowledgeable in both reading music and learning by ear. I have no regrets and look forward to my continued growth. I would highly suggest him to anyone that is interested in learning to play the piano no matter what age you are.

I had the opportunity to take lessons at Listening House for over a year before I went off to study music in college. I had taken lessons before, but since then it had been two years without them. Mrs. Barfield was able to really help me get back on track with my technique and my reading. In the months before I left the studio to go off to college, we studied technique and we worked on preparing me for college level piano classes. We wanted to test out of as many group piano classes possible to save time and money. I was able to test out of the first two classes and, with her help, I also got out of the first theory class at the college. Overall, my experience at Listening House was the best piano teaching experience I have had as a student. Not only do I fee like I have learned a lot. But I have gained a good friend and mentor in Mrs. Barfield, and for that I am so very grateful.

After a brief phone conversation, Matt offered me a opportunity that I couldn't refuse with his in person sessions and online course material. Immediately upon meeting, his professionalism and expertise was evident. He studied my current habits quickly and we addressed some very minor things that needed attention. He also focused on my positives and worked towards excelerating those as well. His session style is very open and his teaching method had me walking away with a new found respect and love for practice. (That's right, I said LOVE for practice) If anything, have a quick phone call with him and sit down for one session. You won't regret it. Cheers to the future!

Two of my daughters have taken lessons with Ms. Altman and I’ve appreciated her balance of encouragement and nudging for more. She’s not afraid to praise what is going well and also tell students what they need to work on. She knows the value of repetition and incremental progress.

My tutor was very flexible with his schedule. It was very easy for us to set up a time and date for the tutoring sessions. He was prepared for the sections I told him I needed help with and was great at explaining concepts I disn't understand from my own professor!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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 can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations..
