I have only been taking the lessons for less than two months, but I absolutely love them! Jim is so clear in the teachings, patient, and encouraging. He is also very flexible in class timings and easily offers alternatives if one class needs to get cancelled or rescheduled. I was very nervous when I first started the classes (being almost 30 and never have had music lessons!), but Jim made everything seem so simple and achievable. He is a great instructor!
I am a woman in my 40s with very little formal vocal training. I sing very part time in a cover band (mostly 80s & 90s rock). I have had weekly half-hour singing lessons with Arlys for the past year. In just the first few months, I experienced a dramatic transformation in my voice and confidence. I have learned how to warm-up my voice, stand and breathe correctly, form vowel sounds to enhance pitch and tone, transition more easily through chest and head voice, and added at least 4 notes to the upper end of my performance range. Over time, my skills increased to the point where our lessons focus on "tweaks" to the songs I will be performing. Arlys strengths are her knowledge of how anatomy affects the voice, her ability to explain techniques in a variety of ways (so that at least one of them clicks for me), a prodigious sense of humor, flexibility, and a passion for both teaching and her own continuous learning. Arlys is delightful, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone who wishes to sing better, especially shy singers, young people, and those who need to know why or how something works.
I purchased a series of refresher lessons from Allured Music Studio and Jess went above and beyond to deliver a nice gift certificate as the lessons were a birthday gift. My wife has not started her lessons yet, but we are hopeful that Jess' initial steps are indicative of her teaching.
My two sons both studied with Shulamit over the course of five years. As a teacher, Shulamit was patient, yet motivating. She has a lively personality that both of my sons responded to. She remained true to her training and philosophy of teaching, yet was flexible when my son's interest was veering away from classical music. Shulamit knew that she was not going to become a different teacher, but she incorporated some popular music into his lessons to try to meet him where he was. As the mother of the student, I have always enjoyed my contact with Shulamit and have felt privileged to be audience to her magnificent playing.
Mike is an excellent teacher with incredible skills and knowledge of many genres of music. Before taking lessons with Mike, I was only learning guitar by learning simple metal songs with my old guitar teacher. When I started taking lessons with Mike, my guitar playing improved exponentially. Mike helps you reach your goals through a variety of methods like exercises and the underlying music theory to introduce the material, followed up by applications of the material seen in real music you listen to. Mike has also helped me be more open-minded about other good genres of music like the blues, jazz, and classical, which has also helped me to become a more well-rounded player. Overall, Mike is a great guitarist, musician, and teacher who can help you get as far as you want to go as a guitar player.
My son, Austin, has been going to piano lessons for over 10 years. We recently switched to Reisinger and are very pleased with the results! Carolyn has taught my son quite a bit in just 6 months and is helping him get ready for college! I would recommend her for any level of lessons.
My 7 yr old son and I have been learning from Jeff for 4 months now. I can definitely say he is very good at what he does and is also very patient with beginners like us ( 40 year old & the other 7:) He has been playing for over 20 years and so knows his stuff. He is constantly trying to find ways to help us understand and learn things more easily. I have a traveling job and have had to reschedule a few times and he has always accommodated that. I strongly recommend Jeff for lessons, no matter what you sort of guitar lessons you are looking for.
This is my children's third school year attending instrumental music lessons with Dr. Lamb and we are more than satisfied with the quality of Dr. Lamb's instruction. My children are learning how to read music and I can see how proud they are of their learning. Dr. Lamb offers extensive knowledge and is an excellent instructor who wants nothing more than to inspire children to explore their musical abilities.
Andrew works with me to help improve the support for my voice and improve the quality of my sound. Our lessons are usually at the Christ the King Lutheran Church and last about a half hour. Andrew impresses me with his extensive knowledge of the workings of the voice and how he uses that knowledge to determine exercises that help enhance the sound. In the short amount of time spent with Andrew I feel more knowledgeable about my instrument which, in addition to the exercises, has brought my singing to a higher level than before I started the lessons. The techniques that I have learned from Andrew will stay with me for a lifetime as I continue to learn and improve.
My daughters love piano and voice lessons with Michael Kullik
Jonathan is an excellent musician/performer and an excellent music instructor. He designs my guitar lessons to fits my needs as a K-5 elementary music specialist in the public schools. He is patient and kind while maintaining high expectations. I would recommend Jonathan Ehresmann to anyone looking for a high quality music lesson experience.
Spencer brings well thought out, individually catered lessons to his students. I love how he has the interests and passions of the student in mind while still working in his expert opinion on what can help the student progress. I have been taking lessons with Spencer for a year and I can see an incredible amount of growth in my playing.
Mike is supportive and professional. He has introduced my daughter to many different types of piano music and helped her continue to love music by teaching to her strengths and not putting unnecessary pressure on her.
At 26 years old and with no musical background, I never thought I could learn how to play an instrument. I have always wanted to be able to play the violin but I doubted whether I could learn a unique instrument like the violin as an adult. Charlotte is fantastic and patient with a real gift for teaching music. I've learned so much in the short time that I have been taking lessons with Charlotte! Learning the violin has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Our daughter had private voice lessons with Sue for a couple of years. Although she just graduated from a performing arts high school where she had an excellent experience, she really 'found her voice' with Sue. She was given a challenging and varied repertoire, had many performance opportunities, and received much positive encouragement and guidance. She was a wonderful coach and gave our daughter some much-needed self-confidence, both on and off stage!
Lauren has taught all three of my sons in private lessons during high school, each on a different low brass instrument - Tuba, Trombone and now Baritone. They all have enjoyed their lessons and have noted significant improvement in technique and performance. As a parent I find Lauren very easy to work with - we schedule lessons and communicate via email. She has been very flexible scheduling during the summer months and consistent with lessons during the school year. Our family highly recommends Lauren Husting!
Jared teaches our daughter both cello and ukulele. He has also given my husband some guitar lessons. He is professional, genuine, and works flexibly with our schedule. He works hard to help our daughter do her best in a way that resonates with her. She enjoys her lessons with Jared and has really progressed in her musicianship with him as her teacher.
Great experience. She tailored her lessons to the learning style and strengths of the individual student. Nicely done, genuinely interested in her students.
Sarah is an excellent music teacher. Her knowledge of music is amazing. I take piano lessons from her. She listens to your goals and helps you achieve them!
I can teach people how to sing, play guitar and viola. I can provide 30-minute to an hour-long lessons, and I travel to you or you travel to me.
We are Doug and Pat and live in St. Paul and have more than thirty years of experience in teaching and performing music. We have two locations in St. Paul, MN, and one has a recording studio. We can teach all ages and all styles of guitar playing, both electric and acoustic. We can help with writing original music and accompany recordings. Any song is available from an i-pod, CD recording, or internet search. We can break down chords and provide easy charts for playing or change keys to one that the student can sing. We can also perform for events, weddings, parties, fund raisers. We play in two bands and various churches in the twin cities on a regular basis.
