Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
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.
Laurie is very thougtful and kind. She has been taught piano to my 10-year-old daughter since this June. Laurie is always calm and helpful. We love our piano lesson. These days, my daughter plays piano pretty well and I’m happy I can enjoy beautiful piano!
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.
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.
I’m glad I’ve met my piano teacher on thumbtack. She’s very patient and share her passion about music in the lessons. I enjoyed her lesson a lot.
Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high qualitythey cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.
John Kunu is flexible in his approach to teaching, he brings many styles & skills to the keyboard, and he is willing to teach to what the goals of the student are rather than a regimented steps approach. John has been my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We are a musical family so it was important to us to choose a teacher with the depth in classical but also the breadth of knowledge in contemporary pop music, in order to keep our teen engaged in what she was learning. John's flexibility to teach to her interest areas while still making sure she mastered foundational skills and repertoire are rare in a piano teacher. We love that he weaves both classical instruction and improvisation so that a student is comfortable playing a piece of Bach as well as the latest songs on the radio. This has kept the learning fresh and relevant. But the greatest thing of all is when we hear our daughter wander over to the piano and just play -- she sounds beautiful and it is utter joy hearing your child make music and know that she will have this for a lifetime.
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.
As an adult returning to piano after decades, I found Suzie to be an amazing teacher who has empathy for where her student is at the moment. Always encouraging and understanding, there is never a stupid question for Suzie so I know she is also excellent with children. Suzie is excellent in teaching theory as well, in ways that are clear. Moreover, Suzie is willing to teach favorite songs if you have them, and she seeks out music that is appealing to the student. I highly recommend, without any reservation, the Dotson Piano Studios for both adults and children.
Great piano teacher! Our kids love him.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
Great with kids
I have been taking piano lessons with Toni Serini for about four years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I started with no instrumental experience at all, at age 61. That background made it especially important that Toni is knowledgeable, very patient, and extremely affirming. As a professional teacher myself, I can attest to the importance of each of those characteristics for student motivation and enjoyment. Toni clearly loves piano, and loves teaching the enjoyment of playing, to both adults and children. I have seen both groups thrive with her lessons. I’m so happy that a chance enrollment in a community college course led me to her!
Juliett is a very encouraging and very patience teacher. I am new to singing, yet she knows how to explain basic concepts well for me to understand. With Juliett's help, I see myself making progress in singing. Juliett is a very experienced teacher in singing and I truly enjoy my singing lessons with Juliett!
My daughter is having a wonderful time learning piano with Stephanie. She is a fantastic musician/teacher and her lesson plans are really fun and informative! My husband and I have seen a vast improvement in our daughter's playing with each lesson. Highly recommended!
Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.
Playing piano has always been a life-long dream. I started piano lessons late in life and never dreamed of finding an instructor like Chris Rooney. His personality, professionalism and teaching techniques are above reproach! I look forward to every lesson and strive to do my best as my progress is a reflection on the professionalism exhibited by Chris.
Our experience working with Alhy has been amazing, my son was so excited after his first piano lesson. Alhy played a song with my son on the first day! she knows how to communicate well with children, she tries different ideas to help the child learn the lesson with ease and understanding.
We met for first time today. Jennifer has been very good with communicating with us. Jennifer is very kind and my son really enjoyed his first session. Looking forward to more piano lessons....
David is an excellent piano instructor. He teaches my 8-year old son and just knows how to click with his students to make it fun for them so that they want to learn. He makes sure the students are building a strong foundation and understanding of music. I highly recommend him for adults or kids!
