I was looking for someone who could teach my husband the guitar. Tokyo is a perfect match. Not only is he an excellent guitarist and singer, he is a wonderful teacher and person! And he looks like he enjoys what he does!
Paul is a great guitar teacher! He is always very friendly, patient, and encouraging during our lessons. He is also always available via text in case you have any guitar related questions, which is super helpful and generous. It’s evident that he truly cares about his students’ progress, and he does a great job planning each lesson to ensure his students get the most out of each week.
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.
First lesson; wife and I back to back. Kelli is very approachable, has a beautiful voice and is a good match for us regarding song/music styles. We're both happy about how we're starting out; seems like a good approach for us. I already play guitar and need vocal help for song/praise/worship scenarios as well as strength for public speaking; Kelli is focused on our needs and interest.
My daughter is a tough nut to crack. She loves her guitar lessons but is basically silent. I love that Kevin takes that, is still himself, and teaches her!
I have taken a few guitar lessons and i am thoroughly enjoying
I've had the pleasure of working with Billy for the better part of 3 years. Billy has fulfilled and surpassed every goal and objective that we were looking for when we brought our young daughters to Progressive Music Center. My daughters take Piano, Drums and Vocal lessons at Progressive. From the outset, Billy has lived up to his excellent reputation as the Preeminent resource for Music education in the Triangle Area by providing individually catered lesson plans along with caring, relationship-based instructors. Not only have my girls progressed musically in every way imaginable, but the program(s) that Billy provides serve as an enriching part of our lives socially and have helped build their self-confidence. We enjoy his passion for music, his experienced direction and our relationship with him has provided limitless opportunity for our family...it continues to be a great ride!
We brought our son to James in Aug of this year and have seen improvements in his playing within weeks. We highly recommend him for guitar lessons. A O’Hara
Howard have been tutoring my two daughters so that they could increase there SAT/ACT scores. He slso tutors me in Pre-Cal Math and English Literature. He is an excellent tutor that knows the material he is teaching. He is always willing to go above and beyond. He makes sure we understands the material. I was surprised when after just 3 weeks working with my daughter, she was able to raise her SAT scores by 90 points. My daughter has an A in Math now all because of Howard. Myself was failing Math in College. I had a D in the class and now I have a B. My first test I got 46%, and after working with Howard within two weeks I got a 94% on my next test. I don’t know how he know these stuff. It just comes naturally to him. If you want your child or even you has an adult going back to colkege like myself; Howard his the guy you need. My daughters are not the easiest kids to teach, but everytime Howard leaves my home they have more confidence in themselves and they grades have increase. So I know he’s doing a grest job.I recommend him with a 110%.
My boys love their guitar lessons with Adam. He tailors each lesson to their personalities / music likes and is very patient. He has really inspired them to become better guitar players. He has also been very flexible with lesson time/dates as the boys schedules are a bit hectic with sports / school, etc. So glad we found Adam!
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.
I've only had the first free lesson/interview. Dave was easy to talk to and we had a good discussion about what I wanted to get out of my piano lessons and how he felt he could help me. He had a book ready for me to get started with and I hired him for a semester. I'm really looking forward to working with Dave who I feel will be someone whose musical knowledge and teaching strategy/philosophy will help me reach MY goals.
I highly recommend Austin for anyone interested in ukulele and guitar lessons! I have thoroughly enjoyed my time learning with him. He's talented, patient, and extremely knowledgeable. I recommend him without reservation!
Philip is a wonderful and encouraging teacher. I am learning a lot, quickly and having fun in the process. He is showing me how I can link piano scales to guitar scales and raise my musicianship in general.
Working with Alan was great - he is super knowledgeable, patient, and good about assigning practice homework. His explanations to a beginning guitar student like myself about chords, finger placement, etc. were very easy to understand and helped me to grasp concepts quicker. Highly recommend!
