I always had a good time when learning with Mr. Eickstaedt. These lessons were memorable and I was better able to remember our lessons because I could link an experience to them.

I consider myself an adult 'beginner' student because even though I took lessons for a year or two in my pre-teens, I've long since forgotten how to play the piano or read music. Recently I found Jon Novi through the Thumbtack website. I was thrilled to learn that, right from the start, he would teach me the songs I was most interested in playing – bypassing the uninspiring, rigid, standard training lessons. In fact, we spent our very first session on a song that I've been wanting to play for years, and I enjoyed every minute of it! Jon has the qualities of a great teacher – he's very enthusiastic, positive, and encouraging, as well as a very skilled musician. Best of all, he takes the time to listen to the student, guiding and motivating them to reach their goals.

My two sons, 5 & 7, love learning from Mr. Bob! He’s very patient with the kids and talented with multiple instruments (piano, guitar, drums). He holds high expectations for his students, which allows my kids to progress rather quickly. I’ve been very happy with having Mr. Bob as their music teacher; the boys always look forward to going to music lessons.

Elif is a very skilled piano teacher for our son, who came to her already knowing piano but still wanting to better his skills. Lessons are in her beautiful home, set up specifically for piano lessons. Elif is able to listen to and watch his playing, determine what skills he needs, and how to stretch his innate abilities. My son enjoys his lessons very much--which is saying a lot! He leaves feeling enthusiastic about what he just learned, and excited about trying it out. We are very grateful to have found her, and highly recommend her as often as we can.

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!!!

Michele is very personable, patient and just flat out awesome to work with! I'd been meaning to take singing lessons for some time and finally got around to doing it. I've played music for years and studied Jazz/Classical guitar in college and could recognize right away that Michele is a true talent and knows what she's doing. By the end of the introductory class I knew I'd found the right teacher to help me develop my ear and my voice.

Peter is an outstanding instructor. Very personable, knowledgeable, takes his time to instruct, demonstrate and then, while I am peforming the move, if needing correction , does so in a calm and easy way. He fit the bill for everything I am looking for in learning self defense in a non class type setting. You wont be disappointed in giving Peter a try. He has all the equipment, mats, and practice items to use as well..He's also very flexible given my schedule of the times I am in his area on other business, to schedule a lesson around.

Our 4 kids have taken lessons from David over the past 11 years and he has brought out the unique talent in each of them. His style of teaching was great for our family. All 4 of our kids could have their lesson at the same time, while each lesson was individualized because of the use of headphones. David has been so easy to work with through the years, with our varying schedules due to school sports and other activities. He has been very flexible in helping us find time to make up lessons that we missed due to schedule conflicts and he has such a positive and uplifting approach. Our house has been filled with such a variety of music, rather than the standard lesson book songs. We highly recommend David as a piano teacher as well as a nice person to know!

Pete taught our son James guitar lessons for about two years. James had never played guitar prior to meeting with Pete, and I was impressed by Pete's patience, optimism and professionalism at every lesson. James can now play several pop songs and even some beginner classical music. Thanks Pete!

I've been taking piano lessons by Ms. Ning for a year now. She is an extremely patient teacher and always guide me to a better understanding of music. Thanks to her, I become more fond of the piano music. She loves to discuss with me about what kid of music I want to play, and not just always follow the lesson book..

Aaron is a gifted teacher and musician. He teaches people of all ages. I started working with him, and already see immense improvement. He tailored my lessons based on my goals and current struggles vs skills. He also worked with my nephew, and I sat through the first session. (My nephew is shy lol). Totally different lesson plan, and worked very well with him. He taught in such a way that my nephew could pick up on it and improve right in the lesson! Aaron is very encouraging, patient, and effective. A hidden gem in the Dekalb County area. I highly recommend him no matter where you're at, or what your age is. I've had a few music teachers, and this guy teaches to make you succeed. His hopes seem to be success above his skills (which might be impossible. He's brilliant and very gifted both in his musicianship and his teaching skills.)

Suzanne made a dream come true. My elderly, terminally ill mother had "Play the piano" at the top of her Bucket List. Suzanne is a kind, compassionate, loving person. My mother and I both feel that we met an angel! We hope to continue lessons as long as possible.

Mary has given our son (who is entering third grade this fall) piano lessons for 2 1/2 years and we could not be happier with our son's experience. Mary has a very pleasant personality and knows how to develop a good rapport with kids (this probably stems from her many years as a music teacher at a K-8 school). We feel like our son has advanced rather quickly in part because Mary introduces him to more challenging material as soon as he is ready. She also solicits input from our son regarding the music selection. This helps motivate our son as he enjoys learning pieces with which he is already familiar and that he likes. In summary, we are thrilled with the piano lessons and highly recommend Mary!

Nick is a great teacher. He is very knowledgeable and talented. I'm taking lessons for the acoustic guitar. He's great at listening to what I want to achieve and understands how to help me, given my current level and available time I can commit.

Anne has been teaching flute lessons to my son for 4 years - and she has been amazing! She remains patient as he learns new notes & scales, yet knows when to challenge him by incorporating those new skills to play more complex pieces. One of her characteristics that I most appreciate is her ability to quickly identify and correct poor techniques, before they become bad habits that are more difficult to let go. Anne has provided several performance opportunities as well, which have helped build my son's confidence and improve his stage presence. My son now plays in his school's Advanced Band as the youngest student at 9 yrs old. I credit Anne's hard work, encouragement, and teaching excellence for developing his proficiency to keep up with his older peers.
