My daughter really likes Debbie's style of teaching and has learned more from her in a few lessons than she had with a previous instructor in an entire year.
Morgan’s teaching style strikes a great balance between having fun and learning how to move to the next level in playing. He does a terrific job in conveying the music theory concepts and principles that guitar players need to know.
Brian was awesome! I had him perform at my wife's 40th birthday party and he was great. He learned a few new songs (in addition to the extensive list he already knows) that my wife and her friends loved when he sang them. He was very accommodating in that he performed his first set outside and then moved inside. I highly recommend him and will hire him for other parties in the future!
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.
I'm a professional musician with expertise in saxophone, guitar, and vocal performance. I wanted to get piano lessons not only to bring my abilities up to high level of performance, but also to improve my arranging and composing skills. Dr. Elena Swensen has a deep knowledge of the piano repertoire, phenomenal piano technique, and a mature and vibrant musicality. I highly recommend her for someone looking to be taught to a top tier pianist who teaches with great flexibility and kindness.
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.
Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.
I've had 2 lessons with Daniel. Not only is he punctual, professional, and clearly, very knowledgable about piano and music theory, but he is also an excellent teacher and generous with time and materials. He has a calm demeanor and is a very clear communicator. I feel lucky to have been placed with Daniel, and hope to continue working with him for a while.
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.
Nicolas is an excellent teacher, he is diligent, patient and works well with children. Nicolas taught voice lessons to my daughter Alison and over the course of two months we saw major improvement in Alison’s performance. I would recommend Nicolas to any parent seeking to help their child in voice lessons and further music advancement. Nicolas being a well rounded individual, is well fluent in two languages and has years of music expertise. His excellent background has proved him to be well qualified for any career in the music and arts. Nicolas has brought his experience to children in Madagascar as well as warming their hearts through music and the arts.
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.
I found Ms. Kathy in our local newspaper ad. I am so happy that she answered my call. I am taking piano lessons again after many, many years. She's fun and a great teacher. She makes learning enjoyable and not stressful. She gives you a lot of pointers and encouragement. I look forward to practicing my pieces and having my next lesson.
Analilia has been working with my 6th grader for 5 weeks now. We are so happy. She tailors her piano lessons to each student. My daughter and Analilia have a great rapport. The lessons are interesting, fun and productive. We all are very pleased.
Mrs. Dotson is one of the most experienced, patient, kind, knowledgeable, and gracious professors. We have had other piano professors before but none truly as wonderful as Mrs. Dotson. She demonstrates genuine interest in the growth of her students. She caters her teaching towards the individual interest of her students in order for them to reach their true potential and keep the classes always interesting and challenging. Consequently, she's an amazing professor for students of all ages. We can't rave enough about her. We always recommend her to any of our friends who are looking to either have their children or they themselves want to learn not only how to play the piano but also music theory, virtuosity, composition, and develop an authentic love for piano music of all genres.
Jabari has been a wonderful teacher. He is methodical, knowlegable, enthusiastic and patient. I am a beginner adult student who was looking for somebody well-versed in classical music, and with an ability to teach both theory and practical. He has been everything I was looking for in a teacher. You can't go wrong!
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!
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.
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!
My students excel in performance and in achieving their goals. By learning to play well, and developing a performance mindset, they enjoy playing with others about their age usually, and competitively for groups they would like to join. There is fun just for the sake of music making itself.
I teach voice, guitar and piano lessons. I especially like working with beginning musicians. You are never too old to start learning about music. I've been teaching lessons on and off for about 8 years. I am also a middle school choir and guitar teacher for MCPS. I love working with beginners who are just starting on their journey towards becoming musicians. My teaching methods depend on the instrument, age and experience of the student, and the goals for the lessons. Every student will develop a solid base of fundamentals and music reading that grows into study of a variety of styles of music. I love seeing and sharing my students passion for music. I can be rather silly and love to laugh, but I also believe that excellence is a habit. Therefore, I try to keep each lesson engaging and fun while also setting reasonable goals for my students. I also want to help my students develop consistent practice habits so that they can see how practicing leads to improvement. Lastly, I want to help my students make music that inspires them.
My work stands out because of the excellent instruction I received as a music student. I was taught solid fundamentals, music theory and was exposed to a wide range of styles and types of music. I teach this way as well.
