I am a choral director and a soloist. I gave local lessons for years. But, every vocalist needs a vocal tutor so bad habits do not form. Dave is excellent not only in his training techniques but he has an outstanding voice to demonstrate the proper training styles that he uses.
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.
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.
Señor Rodrigo is an excellent tutor. I learned a lot in just one session. I am looking forward to continuing my Spanish lessons with him. He is very patient and very knowledgeable of the Spanish language. Definitely consider him for your Spanish lesson.
Matt is an exceptional guitar teacher. He has a great balance of ultimate patience and expansive skill. He tailors the lessons exactly to my skill level, and is great about pushing me to improve in a gentle way. Matt can decode any song I want to play, and break it down in a way that works best with my approach to learning and my skill level. In addition to being an excellent guitar teacher, Matt works with my whole family to bring us together as a band (guitar, drums, piano, and voice). He has an uncanny ability to get the instrument mix perfect, and to coach all of us to come together. I am a 53 year-old guy, and Matt is not only exceptional for me, but also adapts perfectly for my two daughters (age 18 on piano and age 14 on drums). Both of my daughters begrudgingly put in years of piano lessons with conventional teachers, but now truly enjoy playing together under Matt's tutelage. Further, Matt is a great guy ... very dependable and trustworthy. I have had several guitar teachers, and none came anywhere close to Matt's teaching abilities. I cannot recommend Matt highly enough.
I searched Craigslist for instructors in Orange County who teach "Moeller", a specialized method to maximize energy efficiency while drumming. David O and I spoke briefly on the phone about my expectations. I have taken just 5 lessons in total, and so far, my goals have been met or exceeded, including a huge breakthrough on my speed and technique (I'm a technical metal drummer). I can't express how to the point and precise David is. He has learned from some of the best drummers in the business and I feel honored to have the opportunity to work with him and improve my craft. Thank you David!!
Matt displays great patience with the students and does an excellent job of keeping the students engaged. He creates an environment where they have fun while learning. In addition to teaching the students how to play the guitar, Matt also teaches them the proper maintenance on the guitar. Matt instills in the students the importance of reading music and playing technically correct. He ensures the students are continuously challenged to improve without overwhelming them. Our son has taken lessons for over a year now and it has been a very rewarding experience for him as well as us.
I am very happy with Janet's style of teaching, and am continuing to take lessons from her.
Yuen Yee Richardson has been providing weekly piano lessons for my 2 kids since May 2016. Our kids enjoy their lessons with her, have made great progress in their proficiency and are always happy to play a song or two, whether on their own or upon request. Yuen Yee is easy to work with, provides constructive feedback about how our kids are doing, and very communicative. We have recommended her to our friends with no hesitation.
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.
More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.
Mr.Al is a wonderful piano teacher. He is patient, accommodating and meets each child where they are at. He brings enthusiasm to the lessons and finds out what "drives" each child to take their knowledge to the next level. Our boys really enjoy working with him and have made amazing progress along the way. We feel so blessed to have the opportunity to work with him for the past 5 years and look forward to many more!
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
Nicolette Mass has been a wonderful teacher and mentor to help my daughter work toward her goals of becoming a better vocalist in order to perform in musical theater productions. Nicolette's depth of musical and teaching knowledge were evident from the moment she began working with us. Yet at the same time, she created a very relaxed atmosphere where my daughter could be at ease to learn about her voice without being self-conscious. My daughter is introverted and can be very shy, to the point where she does not like to practice at home for fear that her siblings may hear her. But with Nicolette, she belts out songs fearlessly! Beyond that, she is getting parts in the musicals she only dreamed of a year ago when she had her first lesson. We couldn't ask for more!
Mrs. Russakoff taught all 3 of our children to play the piano and we will always think of her as such a positive influence in their lives. Weekly lessons were always fun! The children felt encouraged, motivated and rewarded, and they learned and succeeded. As piano teachers go, you can't do better!!
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.
Sally Dubois is a wonderful Suzuki piano teacher. She makes lessons fun and provides parent guidence so that daily lessons with my 5 year old are effective and efficient at home.
She is a professional and experienced singer and teacher and after only a couple of lessons I am seeing results!
