My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carly since May 2013, after taking a year-long break with another teacher. A happy parent referred us to Carly and I convinced my daughter to give piano another try, before giving it up altogether. I can honestly say that Carly brought the joy of learning and playing piano back to my daughter. My daughter can be very shy and Carly took the time to get to know her and they have formed a great teacher-student relationship. Carly motivates her with fun music, encouraging words and makes her eager to learn, rather than look at piano practice as a chore. I am very impressed with how far my daughter has come, in a short time, with her piano playing. I have gotten to see Carly play piano (and sing!) and she is an extremely talented young woman, that any child (or adult) would be lucky to learn from. She has always provided us with good communication, shown flexibility when needed and I highly recommend her to other parents.
My daughter is going to Keeley for an audition for college and it's only been two weeks. I am not a professional but I can definitely tell a difference in this short time. My daughter is use to singing in a choir and not solo but she is enjoying her lessons!
Joe Basile was an assistant teacher in my 383 class at Western Carolina University, "Music and Audio in Media." I was a film student at the time with very little understand of music and audio especially in film industry. Now the two teachers, co-teaching the class, taught me a lot about sound but it was Joe with his one on one sessions with me and all the other students that help solidify the knowledge we were gaining. After college, I couldn't get a job in film but I was able to get a job as a sound engineer doing live concerts only because of my background with the 383 class and what Joe helped me learn in it. Now I work for Samaritan's Purse in their broadcast department doing audio and video for them. I love my job and how it helps people around the world. I say all this because if it wasn't for that class and Joe helping me on my projects after hours making sure I understand music, audio, and sound, I wouldn't be where I am today. Thank you, Joe Basile! Sincerely, TC
Dr. Warren is an excellent teacher. She has a tremendous amount of experience singing, teaching, directing choirs, and has a winning personality on top of it all. I am a total beginner when it comes to singing and I feel very comfortable in her presence. For someone with more experience, she can easily take you to the next level.
My daughter enjoys her voice lessons and ensemble with Mr. Steve immensely! I appreciate his ability to work with kids at a professional level and still make it fun and exciting!
Taking up drums at age 49 was exciting and challenging. I owe so much of my growing confidence to Clay's teaching. His laid back nature, professionalism, vast knowledge of music history + styles lends itself to lessons that are fun and informative. His approach is fresh and non-judgmental. I always leave a lesson with something new to try. Highly recommend him as an instructor.
Philip is an outstanding and encouraging guitar teacher! I've improved so much in a short time. I really appreciate his expertise and patience. Highly recommend.
I was apprehensive about beginning singing lessons, and was mostly just testing the waters when I submitted a request via Thumbtack, but when Kevin picked up my request and contacted me, I was sure it was something I wanted to do. Kevin's passion for music was apparent from moment one, and from the first lesson I was anticipating each one that would come after. Even in the first lesson I learned techniques that improved my ability to warmup my voice and stretch and explore my vocal range. Without a doubt I'm looking forward to our future lessons.
I have taken a few guitar lessons and i am thoroughly enjoying
This is my first time taking up professional vocal training. I wasn't sure how I'd do with vocal lessons because I don't have a lot of confidence in my singing. I'm really hard on myself when I mess things up, but Ms. Jennifer was so easy with me and explained things in ways so I could understand them well. Her exercises aren't overly complicated, which makes it easier for me to practice at home and I don't get frustrated so easily. She's a patient and sweet instructor, and I'm excited to see how I improve over the next year!
TJ is a wonderful teacher. He clearly loves what he does and is very patient while working with students. I would highly recommend Mr. Rogers to anyone looking for music lessons.
Vernon is an excellent piano instructor. I began two years ago with half hour lessons and am now taking hour lessons weekly. His focus on proper technique, lessons, and lots of music, along with his positive and encouraging approach, have all been extremely helpful. He uses additional material and media to support the learning process (learning jazz soloing along with standards and audio comping). I appreciate that he enjoys teaching and constantly encourages his students' progress, yet listens and helps when there are difficulties. Vernon has made learning piano enjoyable and I have learned a lot.
Rosendo is an outstanding percussion instructor and an exceptional human being. He puts all his passion for music and his invaluable kindness and benevolence in every of his lessons. Rosendo is also very professional, always punctual and extremely encouraging with his students. I have never seen Rosendo not smiling, and always heard him telling all the good he sees in his students.
Having Joe Westerlund as a drum instructor was truly a great experience. I came in as an adult looking to get back into drumming after having played as a teenager. Joe was sensitive to this and planned my lessons accordingly. After 5 minutes with him, I could tell Joe was going to be a blast to work with for half an hour per week. He was quick to cater the lessons to whatever genre of music I was interested in playing which may or may not have matched his personal tastes. Which, to be fair, it's hard to pigeonhole Joe into a specific genre given his vast experience and wide array of bands he's played and toured the world with. His positive attitude and gentle demeanor was comforting to me as a newbie to the lesson format as an adult and I found our time together to be quite enjoyable. Not to mention Joe's technical abilities and musical talents which are fantastic. If I were to recommend anyone I know, kid or adult, to a drum instructor, it would hands down be Joe Westerlund. Besides being a killer drummer, he's also a genuine, great guy.
Dan is an incredible teacher. Through his voice teaching, he is strengthening my daughter’s self confidence and passion for music and musical theater. His classes are not just singing. It’s the science behind it where he teaches her how the body and it’s organs work to sing. It’s learning to create her character. It’s learning to read music. It’s body awareness. It’s understanding that every area, even one you love, has difficult parts or areas you don’t enjoy, but you work on your broccoli because it makes you stronger. He does all this in a positive manner. It’s really impressive.
Joe Sams is a top notch instructor. He keeps my 14 yr old son motivated, and can coach him regarding a variety of performance environments (drum set for a worship team -clicks/audio, vs. school orchestra-music/conductor).
We offer beginner to intermediate violin or fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, dobro and viola lessons. I also hand make violins and guitars and offer expert repair and sales.
I have a very wide range of musical influences which has helped me assist all kinds of students with their musical goals, from folk acoustic guitar to jazz piano to progressive rock to hip-hop and electronic music - I really feel at home in any setting and can relate to people of all ages and backgrounds. I play a myriad of instruments and like to help my students develop a strong understanding of the theory behind what they know so they can explore the patterns further.
I'm a college student with 14 years of music experience, including piano and drums. I am also providing math tutoring, and swimming lessons if requested.
