Jim is a great teacher with a very pleasant teaching style. I took piano lessons as a kid (forced by parents) and hesitantly decided to pick things back up as an adult. I'm in my 9th week. Jim is very patient and understanding of those hectic work weeks when there's not a lot of practice time in between lessons. We go at my own pace with no pressure to be perfect each week (I got that a lot as a kid) and I'm getting a lot out of each weekly lesson. I look forward to practicing on my own at home because the music selections are fun and well-known. I also think he's very reasonably priced too given his extensive musical background. It's a real bargain!
Arlys was very knowledgeable, attentive and enthusiastic despite my status as a novice singer. She teaches vocal drills by example and is good at helping the student relax and learn vocal exercises that would otherwise seem awkward to perform for that first time. I should have recorded my lessons and listened to them for practice and review during the time until the next lesson. She suggested that but I never got my recording device to work. Vocal miracles cannot be performed overnight but if you are serious and willing to work hard between lessons she will improve your singing ability as fast as anyone.
Jess is an incredible teacher. My daughter is taking piano and flute lessons and has improved incredibly since she started her lessons with Jess. She has also given my daughter much more confidence. She is both very personable and professional. My daughter loves having her as a teacher! I would highly recommend her!!!
Not everyone who is a great player is necessarily a great teacher - Mike is both! He knows which tunes and techniques you need to work on, when, to achieve the results that you're after. I've learned volumes from Mike in just a couple of years of taking lessons, which have been a very worthwhile investment for a dedicated guitar student.
It is a real pleasure to provide a testimonial for Ms. Maneev. Ms. Maneev was our daughters piano teacher for the past two years and has been a true source of inspiration for her. After starting to receive lessons from Ms Maneev, our daughters playing skills and musicianship began to progress at a much faster pace, which was not even conceivable to us while she was working with her earlier piano instructor. Ms. Maneev is a great piano player with a wonderful personality, and an outstanding pedagogue and teacher. We are grateful to Ms. Maneev for her or her uncompromising approach, for her attention to detail, and for inspiring our daughter. We could not recommend Ms. Maneev more highly - anyone who has Ms. Maneev as a music and piano teacher should consider himself lucky!
I feel very fortunate to have found Bruce for guitar lessons for my daughter. I had other guitar teachers before but none of them were of the quality of Bruce. He has a well grounded lesson plan and is teaching my daughter how to properly play a guitar vs. just teaching her to play notes or chords on a page. He is very personable and professional and knows how to convey ways to improve without sounding critical. He welcomes questions and is willing to vary the routine (adding in holiday songs or a song my daughter really wants to learn) to keep things interesting. He is even taking the time to adjust a more complicated song my daughter wants to play to her skill level. My daughter loves to play the guitar and I have no doubt her interest is being maintained by her lessons with Bruce.
Setty has really been patient, flexible and an amazing teacher for my 9yr old. We love her!
I just started my piano lessons about 4 months ago and I have been very impressed with how much I am learning. Carolyn has an extensive music background and she is so friendly and comfortable to work with. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. She stretches you to go beyond your comfort zone with music that I truly enjoy playing. I am learning so much about reading music and music theory. She does not overload you but reviews bits and pieces as they fall into place with the pieces you practice. I can't believe how much I am learning. I am very pleased.
Sara has been teaching piano or voice to at least one of our kids for the past 11 years. We feel extremely fortunate to have found Sara, and grateful to have her in our lives this past decade. She has fostered not only an appreciation for music, but a passion for it in our children -- especially our teen aged son. Sara is not only a skilled musician, she has an innate ability to develop a unique relationship with each child. She is able to meet each student wherever they are at. We have four very spirited children with differing temperaments. She has been able to adjust her teaching style to accommodate their needs while remaining firm in her expectations for behavior, practice, and music development. Im certain our son would have quit music lessons long ago with a different teacher but with Saras patient, flexible, supportive style he has flourished and now wants to become a music teacher himself!
So far Tyler had been great. He is quick to respond to my learning style and mold the lessons in order for me to best learn the language.
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.
My sister and I both really liked that he comes prepared with materials, resources, and a lesson plan. His teaching style doesn't waste time and is very explanatory. We feel confident in learning a new language from him as well as excited to continue lessons!
I came to Dr. Barrett with a "lost/damaged" voice through a recommendation from a singer-friend. (I'd majored in voice at college). I began lessons barely able to sing above "mid range." It took about six months of lessons and diligent practice for my voice to recover. Gradually I gained back vocal range, better breath capacity and a tone quality which I found nearly unbelievable. Andrew is patient and knowledgable and in my humble opinion literally brought my voice back from the dead. I highly recommend him.
Mark is patient and skilled professional. He takes time to teach beginners the correct techniques as well as encouraging them to play their instrument. We feel very fortunate to have him as an instructor as our son practiceas and always looks forward to his lesson. (Can not believe this but he has his instrument and in the car before me!)
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.
My daughter has taken vocal lessons from TC Vocal Arts for 2 years. Within a month of starting lessons, she had noticeable vocal growth. Over time she has expanded her range almost a full octave, as well as improving intonation and sight reading. Angela has been very supportive, including attending some of my daughter's other vocal performances and has been easy to work with for scheduling.
Excellent teaching! I've had such a great experience, unfortunately I have to discontinue lessons for a bit. Once I am ready to take vocal lessons again I will surely do them through Lundstrum and Susan!
Jessica has been teaching my son for the past month. She has a good rapport with him, explains what to do and how to do it simply and well. She provides provides and overview to verify he's mastered something before advancing to the next item. In addition she's encouraged him to succeed and challenge himself. He's been enjoying piano lessons and learning skills to improve both his knowledge and his skill.
Great experience. She tailored her lessons to the learning style and strengths of the individual student. Nicely done, genuinely interested in her students.
