Do far so good, she has had two lessons with my headstrong 6 year old son and she has been patient with him and he has been really excited to show off what he has learned. She gives homework to reinforce what he is learning during his lessons .
Tona is an amazingly compassionate and dedicated instructor. She provides voice, violin, and piano lessons to my 3 children; with great flexibility to their varying interests and moods. They are developing a wonderful appreciation for music and the capacity to make their own. Tona is very talented, open, and dedicated to her profession. I would recommend her without reservation.
We just started lessons with Ms Wanlu. My daughter’s first class was incredible in my opinion. She tapped into things that no other instructor ever did. She is clearly a young and talented instructor. We are excited about our future lessons!
I am having an incredible experience working with Debbie Kirkland. What a pro! I have only had a couple lessons, but she has been so patient helping a novice such as myself. Debbie is big on technique, and her comprehensive approach (even getting me down on a mat to show me proper breathing and placement) shows her commitment to her students. I feel like the foundation I am building will serve me well as I progress in my lessons. Even though it’s challenging and frustrating at times, I’m excited every time I go for my lesson. Debbie’s enthusiasm and passion for her craft make it enjoyable, and I’m grateful I found her and look forward to continuing my training under her direction.
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Jim for about 9 years now and vocal lessons with him for 2. Since we’ve first started lessons Jim has always been a true professional: always early or on time, helpful, hard worker, etc. More importantly, however, he genuinely cares about his students far more than any teacher I’ve ever met. Over the years, Jim has not only become a great friend of my family but really a part of our family, and a short review cannot begin to describe how amazing Jim is as a guitar and vocal teacher.
I've been taking piano lessons for a month now with her, and not only have I progressed technically at a good pace, I've also been having a ton of fun!
My experience with Mr. Penney is unparalleled and unequal with respect to any other voice teacher I've ever had. I thought a longtime voice teacher was the best until she passed away and I had to find a new teacher. Then I found Mr. Penney and I've never looked back. Everyone noticed a difference in my voice once I started lessons with him. He hears things in your voice like no one else and he is able to translate that into advice and guidance that enables his students of all ages to reach their potential and their goals.
Maddie is without a doubt the best vocal teacher you will come across. After only a few months of lessons, I was singing like a new person. I feel confident that I have gotten top notch training and have the confidence I need to be successful in the musical theatre industry. I came in with some vocal issues (straining, fatigue and bad habits) and Maddie gave me tricks to make sure I was singing healthily and in a way that I could sustain. Not the mention she is the sweetest, kindest person you'll meet. I am forever greatful for Maddie and the tools she has given me. If you are looking for a vocal teacher, you can't find someone better than Maddie.
Gosh, you simply can't do better. Where else are you going to find a classically trained bluegrass expert with a Masters degree, giving affordable private lessons? Chris is just amazing.
Wonderful, very engaging. Have been Been doing lessons with Orla for over two months. She has taught me so much. I look forward to a long relationship and to continue to grow with her experience and guidance.
My name is Isabella and have been studying with David for about 10 years now. I started taking lessons when I was 5 and I am currently 15. Dave is a phenomenal player and an even more wonderful and caring person. He is very professional and gives meaningful feedback. I have learned so much and I continue to learn something every lesson. We study mainly classical composers, but he is very flexible with whatever you want to play, and he always believes in your musical ability. I have played Beethoven's Sonata No. 8 in C minor, and more recently Chopin's Polonaise in A major the "Military Polonaise". Dave has sparked my passion for music and I hope to one day become a concert pianist. I am truly thankful for all that he has done and continues to do for me and all of his other students.
Our teenage daughter started with Yuki several years ago, uncertain if she would last more than a few months. Since then, the lessons have been going so well that we have bought a new piano. In fact, I (her father) have started taking lessons with Yuki as well. Yuki is very friendly, patient and a great teacher. Highly recommended.
Morgan tailored my music lessons to meet my playing style, level of play and desire achievement. His easy going demeanor made my lessons relaxed and enjoyable. Highly recommend him. John
Taking lessons at Eugene’s Music Studio has been so good for my son’s love of guitar. I used to hear him cautiously trying to play simple songs, but after having lessons with Evan, I hear him confidently playing songs and quickly moving on to harder pieces! I’m so happy with the progress my son has made with Evan.
I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Drum and guitar lessons--prompt, patient, and gave great exercises to use for practice.
My daughter has been taking lessons from Jenni for 4 years and we have thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She brings to the table not only an amazing level of talent, but also a contagious sense of optimism, fun, and love of music. We've also enjoyed how "networked" Jenni is in the local market; she always has recommendations for her students on how to get more involved with performance and/or learning opportunities. Thank you Jenni for all that you've done to promote and teach music in our family!
Our daughter, 13, has been taking voice lessons with Keely for almost a year, and has had a terrific experience. Keely has taken the time to get to know our daughter, her strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and she makes effective use of the lesson time, finding music our daughter enjoys (musical theater), as well as challenging her with music she might not otherwise have been exposed to. Keely is very encouraging, abounding in patience, and a lot of fun to work with. Our daughter loves her lessons!
I hired Jack and one of his associates for jazzy background music at my house on two separate occasions. He was easy to work with, arrived on time, and his fee was very reasonable given his high talent level. I have no hesitation in recommending Jack for his music service, whether to play at an event or for music lessons. And I would definitely use him again.
Met Steve when he was playing a show at a local pub- got to talking and shared with him my 11 year old son's passion for music and learned that Steve gave guitar lessons. Met him on a Thursday. By the following Monday, he was sitting in my home teaching my son to play Everlong- Steve is passionate, enthusiastic, and professional- he's a full time musician- this IS his thing!! Communication with him re: lessons, etc is very easy- and my son thinks he's super-awesome- which bodes well for his own enthusiasm regarding pursing guitar. Highly, highly recommend.
My 9 year old son has only been taking lessons for two months, so this is a very limited experience, but we plan to stick around! Magdalina is very kind and patient with him, explaining the new lesson without rushing, commending him on homework well done, and encouraging his interest. He loves his piano lessons and looks forward to them. Magdalina's schedule works very well for me, as I was able to pick a convenient time. She was very flexible when I asked to reschedule a couple of times. Also, the lesson environment is very pleasant - it's clean and spacious.
