Absolutely amazing in just one session learned more than I have from anyone. Awesome guy and helpful. I can't wait for my next lessons.
I've only recently begun taking piano lessons, but I can already tell that Jon Novi is the kind of teacher who sees limitless potential in his students. His enthusiasm buoys me even when I think I've messed up a song, and encourages me to try again. Also, his piano skills are on point, and he does a good job of explaining how to read a score and the mechanics of playing the piano. Beyond piano know-how, though, I would argue that it is Jon Novi's zest for teaching that makes me glad I am taking lessons with him. You won't regret it.
I learnt a lot in the first lesson with Mr. Garcia. He knows very good piano technique and his explanation is always clear, simple and easy to follow . I look forward for the next lesson!
Elif is simply wonderful! She taught my daughter for 2 years. She is an incredibly talented musician with an unparalleled passion for music and teaching. She creates a nurturing environment for her students while being very honest and disciplined with their development. She explains all the techniques very clearly and encourages her students' innate creativity. I would definitely recommend Elif to everyone who wants to learn this beautiful instrument and share Elif's passion.
Very welcoming and knowledgable. Already scheduled my next lesson. Looking forward to continuing lessons.
Drew has been taking lessons since he was 7 in voice, piano and acting. Theses gifted teachers helped him pursue his career in film, musical theater and, now in his final year at USC , an undergraduate degree in music composition. Most recently, Drew will be singing with the USC Chamber Singers! Each student studying with Stacey De & Co excels from their love for teaching the arts!!!
I've been with Davide at guitar Chicago for just over 2 years now. I have absolutely loved my experience thus far. Prior to my first lesson I never knew how to play or even pick up a guitar! Now I'm playing over 2 dozen songs. Davide is always flexible with my scheduling and is always in a great mood.
Taking voice lessons with Michele for just over 8 weeks, my range has expanded and I'm gaining control. Michele is patient, encouraging and knows which exercises help me the most. Always on time & willing to give a little more. Thank you, Michele!
Yuen has been really great to work with. She is flexible in her scheduling, very patient with my limited abilities in the piano and my occasionally spotty practice regimen, always friendly and cheerful, and, as far as I can tell with my still-limited knowledge base, really knows her stuff. I am definitely improving under her tutelage, and look forward to having my daughter start taking lessons with her when she turns four.
Our 8-year old has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Rum for a little more than two months, and she's learned so much already. Phil and Rum are lovely people. And we really appreciate the affordable rates they offer. Highly recommended!
Love working with her. Am an older singer who struggles with my middle range. Janet keeps me in good voice with her understanding of what the bottom line problem is, and creative lessons and easy to understand direction.
I've been taking lessons with Paul for 2 years now. I started as a beginner and now i feel like an intermediate. I always learn something new every lesson!
I have been taking Spanish lessons with Cristobal for coming up on a year and French lessons for the past 6 months or so. While I am sure that there are plenty of choices for tutoring this may be the only teacher I have had that I can honestly say has far superior methodology versus all my other professors. I don't say this lightly either, I say this coming from years of experience with other teachers in various settings. Just to give a little background, I studied Spanish for 3 years in high school, then studied in Mexico at a vocational school in a completely immersed environment (living with a host family of non-English speakers) far from the reaches of most gringos in a small city called Cuernavaca. I have worked with native Spanish speakers that speak very little English for 10+ years, studied Spanish in college for 4 semesters, and even studied with Professor William Slavin for two years in weekly private sessions, a local scholar who spoke English, Spanish, French, ,Italian, Portuguese, and Hebrew. While Slavin's approach was very thorough, Cristobal's approach is practical, more natural, and aimed at speaking. Ole! Spanish School isn't just another business in the sea, it's a place with an authentic philosophy and a natural approach to language learning. To make the experience even better, his rates are super reasonable and he has a very easy going personality that creates a relaxed environment. His positive ratings exist for a reason.
Josefien made me feel so comfortable! I was nervous to sing as I have never been vocally trained. She was helpful and patient as well as very knowledgable!
I wanted to arrange guitar lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present. The experience was great especially since we live hundreds of miles away from each other. I was a first time user of Thumbtack and I will definitely use it again.
Pete and I regularly performed, wrote music and recorded albums together in Shenzhen, China from 20012-2014. I've traveled the world and have performed/collaborated w musicians from all walks of life. Without a doubt, Pete is one of the best. His unique melodic & harmonic guitar colorings are essential in what set him apart from other composers. Pete knows how to listen to each song and write to meet the needs of that song. Pete is also a seasoned music teacher, having 3-5 years of classroom teaching of guitar, ukulele in China as well as private lessons in the US over the last decade. And then there's performing: Pete's performed in all manner of venues, all types of bands and with eclectic and unique musicians. There's very little he hasn't experienced and so much that he is able to assist in helping student's develop. Whether you want to develop your guitar chops, learn how to song- write, pro tips and pointers on performance - Trust me, Pete Kruse is your mentor. I'm his peer and I have learned countless skills from him. He gets my full recommendation. If you're looking to book him to perform for your function, you'll be very happy with your entertainment!
My son loves piano lessons. The credit goes to Ms. Russkoff.
Learning to the play the piano has been a lifelong dream. And when a change in my work schedule allowed me to sign up for lessons, I jumped on the opportunity. I couldn't ask for a better teacher in Anisha or a better community in The Music Scene. The environment is welcoming an encouraging to students at all levels, and we have become each other's biggest cheerleaders. Anisha has a knack for helping you get a concept that has stumped you, and her love for music is evident in the way she teaches and leads. More than a classroom, The Music Scene is like a living room where friends and family gather to share and play and sing around the piano. It's a place where it's never too late to realize your dream.
Irwin is the real deal! He is the only instructor I found with degrees in both Music and a Masters in Music Education, to say this guy knows his stuff is an understatement. I have had about 5 lessons with Irwin so far and plan to stick with him for years to come. He has taught me so many things already that I wish I knew years ago. He immediately corrected some minor bad habits that have had a major difference in my playing. As he put it, he wants to teach you music as a language, once you know the language you can play with anyone at anytime. This is what everyone should be looking for from a teacher, I am glad I found him:)
This guy is awesome! Mike has a great personality and is very fun to talk to and learn with. It is very comfortable and not intimidating to learn with him and he responds to messages very promptly. Really cool guy :) I'm excited to be learning with him. I went to his place to have the lesson and enjoyed it and am looking forward to next time.
I really enjoyed taking guitar lessons with Ryan! He took time to really listen to and understand what my goals were and helped me work towards them, which is no small feat for a complete beginner. He explained new concepts in ways I could understand and I felt comfortable asking for clarification. He also gave me a variety of different exercises (chords, scales, picking, strumming, full songs) to keep things interesting and to keep me engaged. I also liked that he added in a little music theory (at my request) so that I knew why I was doing what I was doing. In all Ryan is kind, chill, accommodating, talented, and thoughtful, so I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.
