If you really want to learn to sing well, take lessons from Mr. Dave. I studied with him all through high school, and my college professors were so impressed that I knew the basics of singing more than most incoming freshmen. He makes sure to explain everything that is happening with your voice in detail so that you understand exactly what is going on and what you need to do to recreate that perfect sound. Mr. Dave also encourages his students to explore their own voice for themselves and see what techniques and methods work best for each individual singer. He's knowledgeable and passionate about singing, and I highly recommend him to any aspiring singer.
Our daughter (Kivi) started with the recorder in 4th grade, and soon graduated to clarinet. By Middle School, she was taking lessons from a classical teacher who advanced her skills markedly. Upon reaching high school, she was in demand by the jazz band - whose leader persuaded her to take up the saxophone. Kivi loved the sax, and loved jazz, but clarinet remained her first instrument. I thought of the great jazz clarinet players: Pete Fountain at the top of a substantial list. But we could find no one who could teach jazz clarinet. Finally, we attended an event at VanderCook, and one of the presenters gave us Jon's name. Kivi studied with Jon for about two years. I was disappointed with the amount of time Kivi had to spend practicing Jon's lessons - what high schooler has time for anything? Nevertheless, Kivi learned a great deal from Jon, and was the only student to ever perform a clarinet solo in our high school's jazz band history ("Jack the Bear"). Jon was unique in my experience in that he taught what Kivi wanted to learn - rather than imposing a rigid course of instruction. If you are considering private lessons that offer something both valuable and unique, please look no further than Jon Novi.
He got back to my emails right away and was easy to arrange a time with for lessons
My daughter really enjoys taking her piano and vocal lessons there. The teacher warmed up to her right away and she felt very comfortable and at ease.
So far we are off to a great start, I have had three lessons, and feel that I am already improving in my conversation skills.
Matt is an excellent and patient teacher. He is well versed in numerous styles and instruments. Both my children as well as myself take lessons from him. Finding an instructor as knowledgable, versatile, and affordable as Matt would be difficult. I have reservations giving him top marks.
My 6 yrd son took lessons from David O. last year and it was a really great experience. David is great with kids. He is very patient and attentive to the needs of each student and always makes sure to keep it fun.
Took guitar lessons for a couple years here. He definitely knows his stuff and does a good job making sure you understand it as well. Being well versed in more than just playing, I also was given advice on my own music and production. Definitely recommended!
Mrs. Reynolds is an exceptional teacher when it comes to singing. I have been taking lessons from her for ten years now, and have grown immensely with both technically and with a sense of musicality. I respect Mrs. Reynolds not only for her own incredible talent, but also for her ability when teaching to pinpoint exactly what you are doing wrong, whether it's a lack of using your diaphragm or improper formation of a vowel, and be able to help you fix it. Mrs. Reynolds is an impeccable teacher, and I wouldn't wish to be taught by anyone else.
I have never played the piano or keyboard in my life, however I always wanted to learn. I found Phil on thumbtack and I have learned so much! I’ve learned all the notes and feel very comfortable playing the keyboard at my current level. Thank Phil, I look forward to continuing my lessons.
I'm very happy with my lessons!
Hello my name is John I am in my 40s. After talking with Ms David's I automatically knew she was the one that could help me enhance my piano skills, she was very energetic and excited and gave me a lot of pointers over the phone. Being an adult never have took piano lessons I was rather skeptical , but that changed after my first lesson .I love the way she approaches music is very direct and passionate, teaches you at the speed that is very comfortable. I'm really looking forward to my future lessons and recommend her as your future piano teacher
I work in accounting for a business that has customers, venders and employees in Mexico. As our business grows, communicating in Spanish becomes more and more vital to our operations in Mexico. Prior to working with Cristobal, I wasn't able to correspond with our Spanish-Speaking customers and venders. But, after working with him twice a week for several months, I developed a proficiency in written Spanish that has dramatically increased the efficiency of those transactions. Tutoring sessions were fun and challenging. Cristobal was able to tailor lesson plans specifically to me and my business. He combined critical elements of interpersonal communication with relevant business interaction and dialogue. The structure Cristobal formulated in his lessons created a platform for continuous growth and learning. Because of the foundation he provided me, I am now able to continue learning through the day-to-day interactions I experience at work. His guidance and aptitude for communication was an invaluable asset to the progress I have seen in our customer and vender relationships. I would highly recommend Cristobal as a tutor or consultant for any Spanish-speaking integration in business.
My oldest daughter started working with David when she was 5 years old and has been doing so for the past 10 years. Her brothers have also taken lessons from David and the experience has been a great one! David really keeps the music fun and curbs it towards what the children not only want to play, but also the necessary tools they need to be successful. Whethere my boys continue with the piano or move on to another instrument, I definitely feel our time with David has been worth the commitment and respect David as a role model for my children, not just as a teacher but also an adult mentor!!!
Nikki is a wonderful voice teacher. She really works with her students to bring out their best qualities and is very encouraging. Nikki provides students with a warm and supportive environment for improving their vocal skills. She really listens to the individual needs of her students to customize her lessons and develop a positive relationship.
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.
My daughters have only had a few lessons with Ning at this point, but both are very excited to learn, can't wait for their lessons, and think she is a "great teacher" (pretty strong reviews from 7 and 8 year olds!). Ning is very prompt, organized, and professional and we have been very pleased thus far!
Aaron is great. Been taking mandolin lessons from him. I am an experienced guitarist and Aaron is adapting to how I want to learn well. He is very patient and flexible with grown up schedules.
I have not played in about 30 years and felt kind of funny wanting to take lessons again. Suzanne is very encouraging and has helped me find my joy of the piano again. I am so happy!
The teachers are awesome, very amiable! The kids loved taking their guitar lessons! I definitely recommend Simply Suite Music.
