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.
Mr. Bob has provided my children (8 and 9 years old) with piano lessons in our home as well as the studio. They went from not knowing anything about music to reading notes and playing songs within a couple of weeks. When they would get frustrated he helped them work through their struggles to show them they could be successful. I would highly recommend Mr. Bob.
My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)
My daughter enjoys taking piano lesson with Mr. Al for the past 4 years. His lesson is not boring. It's fun and the best part is he comes to our house to give lesson.
Got my 15 year old daughter guitar lessons with David & he was AMAZING!!
I got SO much more than I asked for connecting with Altered Stage. Not only does my membership get me access to unlimited guitar lessons with an awesome teacher, it also includes a great space with all the equipment needed, a welcoming community of likeminded and friendly recreational musicians, and the chance to play on-stage with my fellow members once/month. I went from being the guy who could play chords and learn simple songs through tabs to someone who understands music theory and feels comfortable jamming with strangers at the drop of a hat. A huge change from where I started and not at all what I expected. AS gives members the chance to get involved as little or as much as one wants. I could not recommend them more to musicians at any level.
Wiebe is the best, most trust worthy guitar teacher ever! It's a lot of fun to play and learn here. Students are super cool too! Best thing is that sometimes you can even make a small band here!
I've taken guitar lessons over the years and Fran is the best instructor, I have ever met. He has the ability to teach and convey theory in a very concise and organized manner. His blueprint process helps you become a better player.
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!
My wife wanted to take guitar lessons as sort of a refresher. I came across an Eric Kinkel website and found out that he gives guitar lessons. My wife called him for rates and times. She also mentioned to him that she has an older guitar and didnt know if would be suitable for lessons. As it turned out Eric was nearby and offered to. stop in and give an opinion on the guitar. Eric had one of his guitars with him and my wife talked him in to playing. That sealed the deal! He is really very accomplished and played incredibly well. Back to her guitar . . .there were minor issues for which he recommended a "guitar guy" who did great jub of fixing the tuning keys, changed the strings and made a few more tweaks for under a hundred dollars. That worked out great. Maybe this was a bit lengthy but the whole experience was nice for my wife. She wound up taking 4 each 1 hour long lessons to clear off the cob webs. I thought it would be good to pass this on because providers like Eric are becoming scarce. If you are near the Chicago Northwest. Suburbs and considering guitar lessons, definately give Eric a shout.
I took lessons through Mclain's mind of music for one reason; to learn how to play "Green Hill Zone" on Piano. Thanks to Kevin, I can say that I accomplished that goal (granted, 2 years after he left but you get the idea.) Because Kevin was my teacher, I've moved on to learning a couple other songs as well (although I could always practice more than I do.) When Kevin was giving lessons in Chicagoland he was the most affordable piano lessons, regardless of if it was hourly or half-hour (short of having a piano whiz for a grandparent who would teach you for free, which I do not.) Improve, I guess a couple times he was 5 or 10 minutes late for the appointment, but that's only because he would DRIVE OUT to the kid's house and be stuck in traffic on the way back (which is totally understandable, considering what an excellent musician Kevin is.) If you take one lesson, you'll feel the same. Young or Old, Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced Kevin can teach you how to play.
First impression has been great! Still in beginning phase of lesson plans .
First lesson went great. Todd is responsive to my needs as a student and really knows his stuff. I look forward to future lessons.
Meagan is professional and conscientious. She makes the lessons interesting and fun with her attitude and music selections.. We could not be happier.
I was looking for someone to teach my son how to play a guitar ( no previous experience). Now thank to Phil Barrile he’s playing every day and continue to improve. Thank you Phil for being a great teacher to my son!
