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.
Brian was a wonderful hire! He was so easy to work with and the music was great.
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.
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.
Melissa makes you feel very welcomed at every lesson. She is also invested in the material she teaches and her students. She tailors the music lesson to fit the student. Lastly, you feel encouraged when being taught by Her. Taking piano lesson with her is your best choice.
It's amazing watching the progress my daughter has made since working with Annie. She looks forward to her piano lessons. Annie is very good at adjusting the pace of the program to what works best for each individual, and my daughter loves the encouragement stickers she gets for her accomplishments.
First off, Larry is one of the best teachers I have ever had. You can tell he cares about every fundamental building block necessary to become a well rounded musician. He's particular about certain techniques, and as I progress I continue to discover the brilliant method to his madness. I took saxophone lessons for 4+ years, and was in multiple bands, but I can honestly say Larry has liberated the way I understand music. Lessons with Larry are one of a kind. He writes the lesson book week by week, combining years of knowledge and experience into one book for your personal use. You learn everything you would have if you paid thousands of dollars for music education, plus the one on one lesson time. So nothing goes misunderstood, and you move at your perfect pace. I recommend Larry to anyone who truly wants to become a great musician. There are no shortcuts, and this is the real deal. Larry has mastered the art of teaching, and I honestly believe he will help me surpass the high expectations I have set for myself as a musician.
Love the lessons! Great pace of instruction-- just enough so that you make steady progress but I never feel rushed
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.
Paul was an amazing teacher, he tailored the lessons to work on what I was interested in and focused on achieving my own goals as a musician. As a student and music minor, he did a fantastic job incorporating music theory in each lesson, which I greatly appreciated. Also, he was flexible about scheduling which was helpful, again as a student various things came up but Paul was always willing to reschedule at my convenience. He's a great guy, very easy to talk to, and if I find myself in Baltimore in the future I will definitely contact him for future guitar lessons!
Singing lessons. Just starting out but Caitlin has been wonderful. Very patient and encouraging.
To put it simply, I would not be the musician I am today without Max. He is an incredible instrumentalist, audio engineer, and teacher. I have learned so much about music theory, performance, recording and producing, and everything in between. Multiple times he helped me take a song from an idea to a finished product, teaching me the process throughout. I would recommend Max to anyone who wants to dive deeper into the world of music in whatever way you want, as he is fully prepared and more than qualified to teach you.
Brett was extremely flexible in being able to provide us a timeframe for piano lessons for our daughter, responded back quickly to emailed questions, and my daughter adored her piano tutor. We're really excited to get her started in weekly lessons.
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.
Drum and guitar lessons--prompt, patient, and gave great exercises to use for practice.
