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!

I've taken piano lessons with Mr. Chenevert for two months now. He has been fantastic, very kind and patient. I've learned quickly, thanks to his wonderful teaching. Five stars for this teacher and this find on Thumbtack!

I am enjoying my piano lessons a great deal. James is helping me establish my own plan, learning at my own rate. He is always ready for me when I get to his house and has a beautiful grand piano that I enjoyed playing.

I am a mother of grown children who decided to take piano lessons after years of running my children to various lessons and recitals. I had piano lessons as a young child and kept playing casually at home. Shulamit’s excellent technical training and knowledge of classical music has been inspiring to me for the two years I have been her student. It has kept me moving forward through the disciplined process of consistent practice at a level I never had experienced before. Now I even enjoy listening to Bach Inventions for enjoyment!

I have been taking lessons with Shulamit for about 4 months now, and her teaching has helped me immensely to improve. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things music and is able to offer truly helpful insight that is rare among piano teachers. She is willing to help push me when I wish to strive for harder pieces, but also understands and helps me when I need more practice. I would highly recommend Shulamit to anyone wishing to take piano lessons.

I started playing piano when I was over 50 years old. I have been taking piano lessons from Shulamit for the last year and a half. She is an excellent pianist and has a great ear- she hears all my mistakes. She has been helping me fix my bad piano habits. My playing is much better thanks to her. It would be difficult to find someone as accomplished as she.

Mark tutored my grandson whom will be entering the 2nd grade this fall. What I wanted my grandson to gain from the sessions was confidence that he could do any math problem ranging from two digits to 11 digits at his grade level. Mark not only exposed him to large number addition and subtraction but also multiplication and division. We were very pleased with the services received and will continue to use Freed Tutoring services.

Mark helped our grandson with pre-algebra and was very nurturing and patient while teaching concepts. Nick really enjoyed his sessions with Mark and gained so much confidence. I believe the skills talked about carried thru in his other subjects as well. Mark is excellent!!

At 41 years old and with no musical background, I decided I wanted to learn how to play the drums. Needless to say, I have a lot to learn but Nick has done such a great job starting at the beginning, teaching me the basics, and building from there. I played my first song with a band and can't wait to get started on the next one. The best part is Nick worked to understand how I learn which makes it fun.

Nick has been absolutely awesome to work with. His energetic and ethusiastiac personality helps to keep me motivated. When working with Nick you can expect to learn technique, grooves, reading, playing with recordings, and he has you pick a song you like and work on that every lesson. I've grown exponentially, and love going to lessons every week. I get better and better every week. Totally worth the $.

Nick is giving my 7 year old son lessons which could be a very hard task for most. He was so comforting and so encouraging with him though. My son came out of his 1st lesson very happy and confident :)

I frequently take my grandchildren to their music lessons with Dr Barbara Lamb. Dr Lamb has a vast knowledge of music and of different instruments. My grandson has improved greatly under Dr Lamb’s tutelage, both as a school teacher and leader of The Fabulous Fiddlers through fourth grade and as a private teacher. He is now able to read music in both treble and bass clefs and the tone when he plays has improved greatly. She includes vocabulary slowly, as in the musical signs and terms for tempo, etc. She gently guides him into making improvements in his stroking and incorporates interesting bits of information about the music he is playing. When it is obvious he hasn’t practiced enough she doesn’t chide but instead tells him how and why the music would sound better if he were able to spend more time playing. He enjoys the fact that in addition to the standard teaching books she will coach him on music he brings in, Star Wars themes in particular. When he brought in his recorder and played a piece for her she complimented his playing and also gave hints on fingering and breath technique. She is very patient and when my grandson starts rambling about other things she listens and gently guides him back to the topic. She instilled a love of music in both children and I enjoy hearing them sing when they are in the shower. My grandson says he would give Dr Lamb a 5-star rating, adding that she is nice, patient and she knows a lot. He was very disappointed when she left his school and the Fabulous Fiddlers program was dropped. It had taught him discipline and had prompted him to work harder on improving his cello skills. He is looking forward to continuing cello as he moves on to middle school. My granddaughter has had to drop lessons temporarily due to school responsibilities but she also enjoyed her lessons and progressed well. She hopes to be able to continue guitar lessons in the future.

Fantastic! My husband and I are not musical, and were not raised in musical homes, so when our daughter started to take violin lessons there was a lot of apprehension, particularly with her young age. Dr. Lamb taught her violin and taught us how to help and be supportive. She has been a great influence, patient and kind, while still understanding how to push her forward. She is a clear communicator and sets both short term and long term goals in order to keep practice fresh and fun, while still allowing for the kids to reach their potential.

Sharon is an outstanding teacher. I take my two grandchildren to her for piano lessons and they love to go. They learn differently and Sharon teaches them the way they learn best and picks music that they enjoy as well as being challenging. When one has to miss a lesson the other always wants to have that time tacked onto her lesson . I could not be more pleased.

My daughters have studied with Accent Music Academy and Sharon for a number of years. They love their lessons and they love her. She is always positive and supportive and encouraging. Even if the girls show up unprepared (what, they didn't practice?) she never is negative or discouraging. Highly recommend her as a teacher!

Maria Grant's success in teaching is her ability to look at the individuality of each student and the keen sense to adjust her teaching style to fit their needs. She's willing to go the extra mile and look for new ways to continually motivate and challenge her students to want to do their best. She's passionate about her love of music and what greater gift could she offer than to pass that on to her students. Maria teaches both the young and the not so young. As a 'not so young' student, she taught me to focus more on the purpose of being a musician and less on the performance. I am so grateful for her as my teacher and mentor.

Shanna S.

Verified review

Maria's passion for music is very apparent every single week that we show up for lessons. I've been so fortunate to watch my daughter go from a little girl taking lessons to a young adult continually working on her passion. The lessons now are a true collaboration between teacher and student where ideas are exchanged and a deeper thought goes into conveying the artistic meaning of the song. Music has become my child's passion, largely due to Maria's guidance and compassion. I'm so grateful we found Maria to pass on this beautiful gift.

Ricky will help new students learn the foundations of piano - rhythm, fingering, scales, melody, and more. Be sure to ask him to play for you, he has an amazing gift to give.

Jim Plattes is an excellent violin teacher. I am a beginning adult violin student who requires a lot of patience. He provides a comfortable environment for learning and has given me useful instruction on developing my bowing hand, holding the violin, and developing the right tone. I recommend him highly.
