Larry is the third guitar teacher I've ever had. The first two were in the classical style, and I was seeking a teacher to teach me electric/metal techniques and somebody who would be willing to teach me theory in the guitar to help me be able to start composing. Larry has gone above and beyond the call of duty, and I have never had more fun or learned more from an instrument teacher, I highly recommend him !!!!!
Pete caters his lessons to his students' abilities and makes learning to play guitar fun. My daughter has been taking lessons for several years, and practices for the sheer joy of playing. Pete is a very talented and accomplished guitarist who takes great pleasure in watching his students improve under his guidance.
Definitely the best guitar teacher I've had! Jay has a very detailed set of lesson plans in 10 books that walk you through learning guitar from the basics to advanced in a systematic way. Highly recommended!
Dr. Bill Hall is one of the finest teachers I have ever had! I was a bit nervous about reaching out to someone new over thumbtack, but Dr. Hall immediately made me feel comfortable and confident in asking the right questions. He gives great feedback, and helps to elevate your musicality and voice to a new level.
Quick response, very easy to work with and great teacher
Maya is a remarkable talent. Her prowess at the piano is breathtaking. She has an unsurpassed knowledge of the piano and its history. These attributes make her a wonderful teacher. What makes her a great teacher is her personality. She cares for her students and she knows how to bring out their best. She's been there! Maya is disciplined and holds her students accountable in a positive way. She is very patient and understanding of the struggles students encounter. She makes you want to be a better student. I thank my lucky stars that I have Maya as a teacher. Anyone wanting to learn the piano could not find a better teacher. Maya's student: Rick Sturgeon
She is awesome!!! Love her. Have great feeling about my girls piano experience
A very dedicated music teacher and always listens to the children and try to help them
He is an accomplished performer (not true for all piano teachers), and through detailed instruction, has helped me to advance my level of playing. Also, he seemed to genuinely enjoy teaching.
Nabil has made Julian blossom in his talents. Having the Language and Music House on site for piano and French is wonderful. Punctuality in all correspondence is wonderful also.
Good guy with a lot of experience and technical knowledge. Very professional and accommodating to your musical and creative needs. If you have a blueprint Jeff has the tools.
I have taken fiddle lessons from David during the past few months. He is a patient teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge of traditional Irish and American folk music and comfortable teaching style.
Jan is such a great teacher. I am a 63 year old woman and have never taken lessons before. Within just a few weeks, I was playing along with songs! Jan is very professional, and always answers my questions. He is great at helping students accomplish their goals.
Peter has been giving my 6 year old daughter lessons for the past few weeks and it's going great. He shows up on time, he's very patient and teaches at her level. Very good violinist and teacher
Kenny's dope. Wealth of knowledge and super cool to be around. He is exactly the kind of teacher i was hoping to find.
My son is on the spectrum, and it's hard to find tutors who are creative enough to make lessons that are comprehensive enough for him, and he can relate to. I love that he enjoys his music lessons and doesn't see them as a "chore", he looks forward to them. That speaks volumes!
It has been about two years since our son started taking piano lessons. Cathan has been an extremely knowledgeable, wonderful, caring and inspiring teacher for him from the very beginning. She was very encouraging when we were looking for a teacher and created a great impression on us right on the first day. My son's fondness for the music and the music teacher has only gone up since he started taking lessons. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to the beginners as well as advanced learners.
Great teacher . Great person.
Kevin is an amazing percussionist as performer and teacher. He was my first percussion teacher, and he changed my life.
My daughter started playing piano at age 8 is about to turn 18. She has been taking piano lessons with Cathan for the past five years and it has been a completely amazing experience! Cathan is a wonderful person who truly cares about her students. She has not only been an excellent teacher, but also someone my daughter truly admires and enjoys being with every week. In her lessons, she has inspired my daughter and given her a deeper and richer experience by helping her understand the time periods that the music was written in, who the composers were and the story they were telling with their music. Cathan has a way of integrating all of this effortlessly during her lessons and it has helped my daughter develop into a more mature pianist. When she plays now, her music if full of emotion and depth--it is so much fun to listen to her play. The relationship she has developed with Cathan over the years has given her a greater confidence in all areas of her life and education. There were times when my daughter struggled--Cathan patiently walked her through those times and found new ways to motivate and inspire her, and for that we are truly grateful. It has been a joy to work with Cathan--she is a gifted teacher and an exceptional human being.
My daughter started learning from Alla from the beginning about 2 years ago at the age of 7. Alla comes from a traditional Russian background and knows her stuff. If you are looking for Suzuki method, she is not the teacher for you. She teaches according to how she was taught and believes is correct and while I may not have understood her methods, I have learned to trust them and trust her judgment. For example, she didn't let my daughter touch the bow for months, and even when she did, she didn't allow her to do so unsupervised by her. She focused on the left hand and didn't use tape to learn where the notes are. I felt like some things were hammered for a while and then my daughter would take off on them. When we meet up with an older cousin and she sees where my daughter is after 2 years, she says, "Wow. I didn't do that for a long time." One thing about Alla if you are considering her as a teacher is that she is sometimes gone because she performs around the world. That means there are gaps in teaching throughout the year...usually in the summer. I don't mind this as it gives us a break and also because she stays fresh as a violinist. She is also readily available on Skype to give lessons when she is a away and while this sounds strange to us uninformed folks, she is remarkably able to correct and teach even online. While Alla expects excellence, she is very patient and understands that kids are kids. She has stuck through and motivated my daughter when it got tough. She's very warm and caring...but she does expect you to do things the way she taught you! Alla is very generous and giving. She even came with us to Dan Lawrence Strings in Lee's Summit to pick out an amazing violin that I know we wouldn't have gotten without her there. One thing I would like more of are recitals. We've had 2 over the past 2 years. However, for now, I'm glad for the foundation my daughter is getting and trust there will be more opportunities to perform in the future. Kansas City is lucky to have Alla here as a violin teacher and recognized performer and I hope you will hire her so that she'll have reason to stick around!
