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.
I started piano lessons with Sammy a month ago and he 's been great for me because Im self taught and play by ear and Sammy's been working with me on learning how to read and understand music theory . He is very patient and explains things so I can understand it ! I look forward to being one of Sammy's best students !!
I have taken over a years worth of guitar lessons from American Music Studio and will continue taking lessons into the future. Brett in co. cater lessons to your skill level and learning style, encouraging you to push the limits and learn more. The instructors are approachable, motivational, personable and experts in their craft. I cannot express how educational and enlightening my experience with American Music Studio has been.
My 13 year old is taking saxophone classes with James. He is wonderful teacher, always on time, very positive and great at motivating students. We feel my daughter has make much improvement in just a few lessons. I highly recommend Cadenza Studios!
Ms. Nicole Lamm was my very first voice teacher. I started taking voice lessons with her at about age 13, and continued for over 5 years, for all of 8th-12th grades. Being at the most beginning stages of singing, Nicole not only introduced me to a genre of music that I never thought I would sing, but that I would easily fall in love with. She brought me from an inexperienced child to a young lady, preparing me and instilling in me musicianship, work ethic and and a passion for classical music, including art song, musical theater and opera. Her teachings are affective for anyone, young or old, beginner or professional. Because of her patience and time spent with me all those years, I have been singing for over 10 and am continuing my studies as an opera singer, a career that began with her and will last a lifetime.
Yulia Petrachuk is an excellent singer and vocal coach . Her extensive knowledge of music, vocal technique along with her artistic gifts and ability to share them with others all combine to make her an outstanding artist and teacher. I highly recommend her!
Singing lessons. Just starting out but Caitlin has been wonderful. Very patient and encouraging.
Mr. Walls is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. As a choir member at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for the past fifteen years, I have been able to sing liturgical music, and participate with other choirs in singing more complex pieces of music, such as requiems and compositions for rites of the church and special occasions. Our choir has sung in various languages, and joined other choirs in ecumenical choir fests. Mr. Walls has studied music composition, conducting, and history, and is an accomplished musician on several instruments, including the piano, organ, and guitar. He has several years teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I would say Mr. Walls' expertise and talent are second to none.
My teenager takes clarinet lessons at the music space. Her instructor, Zach, is great! The entire team is very professional and kind. I would highly recommend "The Music Space".
What a great fortune to find my perfect singing instructor through this site. Diane is a pleasure to work with. She made me feel. Try confortable and explained what goes into good singing technique and I can already see an improvement since my second lesson. She is very professional and very friendly. Very respectful and has a great way of explaining things. The price is very reasonable and she is very patient. I never took singing lessons before and have not studied music, but she was willing to teach me from nothing and I quickly learned enough to improve a lot in a little time. I can't wait to tale more lessons and get even better. I highly recommend her especially to other females that are looking for an instructor they can trust and feel safe going to her home studio and directions are easy along with a large parking lot which makes it all convenient safe and efficient. Thank you Diane!
While I’ve only started my violin lessons Kirsten has been a wonderful teacher whom I know will be able to help me learn to play the violin.
Maddie is a professional. She has natural talent in music/acting and has studied and trained in this area. Lessons with Maddie are like advanced courses! She gets so much accomplished in every lesson. She can play any music, knows so much music and her voice is...amazing--can't get enough. The fact that she has the ability to teach is what sets her apart.
Im so excited to start my lessons with Derrick! After meeting with him I knew he would be the best fit for me. He has such a great personality and I know he is going to help me make great strides to achieve my goals with my vocal lessons with him. I would highly recommend Hewlett's Music Studio to any vocal scholar!!
Janet Greene was my son’s private lessons teacher for almost ten years. She worked with him as a 4th grader until after graduation. His love for his viola and music is in large part due to her passion for music and her gentle guidance to the nuances of music and playing. She also encouraged him to practice every day and we have fond memories of him walking around the house every evening playing his instrument. She often found other venues for him play which gave him confidence in his ability to play in front of others. I believe that one reason he is still playing his instrument in college is the love for music she helped him develop. I highly recommend her as an instructor, tutor and person!
I am currently taking lessons with Ms. Carol Westcott and I could not be more thrilled. The setting of the studio is not only comfortable but welcoming, while at the same time her expertise and knowledge make it so easy for me to trust her judgment. She has a very technical way of teaching; when something goes askew in my voice, she tells me exactly what happened, and even has a 3-D laminated model of the larynx and vocal cords to show me what happens when I sing low, high and in between. On the other hand, she knows my voice so well that she can tell me exactly what to do based on my unique voice in order to produce a certain sound or tone. She has helped me develop my opera, chest mix, chest register, head register, low, middle, and high belt, as well as different styles of music, such as country, pop, alternative and musical theater. ONE LAST THING: I arrived at my first lesson not knowing a THING about sheet music...I had based my learning on sound for my whole life, so I couldn't read notes, keys or symbols. She taught me how to do just that. Thank you, Ms. Carol!
I am over 30 years old and went to Miles with zero musical knowledge let alone any experience playing the drums. Miles reaches that perfect balance of being patient and pushing me to learn more. He has introduced information to me at a rate that is appropriate and takes the time to work through the musical concepts with me. At the same time he knows when to push forward with more challenging aspects of playing the drums to get the most out of our lessons. Miles is clearly very knowledgeable and talented and I recommend him highly if you are looking for drum lessons.
Excellent teacher who teaches music very holistically: not just how to play the piano but ear-training, theory, improvising, music history, and more. My son has made huge gains in just two years. Highly recommend.
The vocal technique that I learned from Dorothy Miller completely transformed my voice and my career as a singer. Dorothy’s teaching focuses on the implications of classical, consistent technique within all different styles of music. Voice lessons with Dorothy combine this teaching of safe, anchored singing while exploring the exciting world of performance and audition repertoire. For me, I started working with Dorothy at the age of 12. I had been singing my whole life, but my throat was constantly sore and I had no access to higher ranges. In my 6 years of study with her, I was able to expand my range and vocal versatility, lay down a firm technique and develop a passion for new types of music. Dorothy works to develop an authentic, individual relationship with each student, and over the years I can genuinely say she has become like a second mother to me. She additionally helped me to navigate and prepare for the college audition process, and I completely credit her in my acceptance to the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University!
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.
Michael has been teaching my kids piano and guitar. He is patient and really connects with them. He teaches them current music to keep them interested but he also teaches theory and mechanics. Great experience for my kids.
