We just met and have arranged to start my lessons next week. Thanks so much - Terence
My son has been taking lessons from Carly for a year now. He was hesitant about taking lessons but she has been patient and very good with him. He really enjoys taking lessons from her and I love that he thinks piano is so much fun! I'm so impressed with his progression in only a years time. I would totally recommend Carly!
Lydia is a great teacher. Both my kids and I advanced really fast. She is very patient and joyful in her teaching, so kids enjoy lessons. Both they and I think she is the best.
Wanted to learn to play for 30 years, never dove in. Finally after just a few lessons with Tokyo I am off and running better than expected - tons of fun!
Mrs. Keely is always teaching me new things and always is making me laugh through the entire lesson. I can't wait to have more lessons with her in the future.
I took lessons for 9 years as a child/teen and have played periodically over the years. I am now 46 and considered intermediate to advanced in my skill level. Holly had great advice to give on polishing my technique and habits to make my fingers move the way they should again. I feel like working with her really got me back on track and I am playing better now than I was prior to taking lessons with her. She was also flexible in scheduling and worked with me to make it possible for me to continue lessons as long as I could. I had to stop temporarily to pursue some educational goals but I do intend to return to her to continue lessons when time permits.
James is highly knowledgable - patient and helpful. He knows music history, technique, and can demonstrate so a student can learn. I take classical style lessons but he is equally qualified in many other styles of music. Friendly and outgoing. I highly recommend him if you want to learn to play as a beginner or if you are experienced and want to improve on advanced techniques.
Leslie tailors each lesson to what I need at that time. Her lesson visuals improve understanding of the concepts. Most importantly, she developed my vocal skills in ways that I never thought possible. I now have the confidence to present myself and "perform" in any capacity. She has an amazing client list, professional experience, and contacts. Be sure to tell her how much the Tootsie pop exercise could help you! I highly recommend her.
Maida is teaching me Spanish, and I am very satisfied with her methods. She has recommended a book that I use and she leads me through the lessons and adds to them with explanations of daily usage and pronunciation. It is just a little difficult to understand her English sometimes because of her accent, though.
Kelli has helped my son improve tremendously not only with his voice, but with his confidence as well. She is great to work with, very flexible and patient. She goes out of her way to individualize the lessons for the student. Also provides public performance opportunites for her students to gain exposure and experience.
We are loving our experience with Heather Hills! My 8-year-old daughter takes piano with her once a week. (This is her first experience with piano lessons). The home setting is welcoming and beautiful and Heather's personality is wonderful. I have been so impressed with how much my child has already learned after about 8 weeks. She is always eager to practice and after each lesson she is in such a positive mood, excited to share her new songs. We appreciate Heather's ability to be flexible with our schedule as well--due to illness or vacation, etc. I (and my daughter) highly recommend Heather Hills for a piano teacher!
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!
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!
Wonderful, professional piano teacher. My son and daughter have enjoyed their lessons and learned a lot. When you have someone in your home working with your children, it's important to find a professional that you trust. I highly recommend Mr. Harkins!
Wonderful lesson! He is very knowledgable and I look forward to more lessons!
My 2 boys have been taking lessons at progressive for 8 years. My 13 year old is a drummer and loves taking lesson there. My 16 year old takes guitar, and also is in a band at Rock academy. They have participated in Rock Band camps every summer, and have loved every minute of it. It is a wonderful, creative environment to learn and hone your craft and I wouldn't have my 2 boys take lessons anywhere else.
This guy is the real deal. I saw him as very respectful. Choose TJ for your lessons.
Dan is a wonderful voice teacher who creates a professional yet relaxed, non-judgmental atmosphere during lessons. This makes exploring your voice and learning new principles enjoyable and satisfying. Dan himself is a highly accomplished classical singer, but he’s open to working with all types of material and ways of using the voice. While working on technique, Dan never lets you forget that your job as a singer is to communicate the text of the song. I’ve worked with Dan for several years now and can recommend him without reservation.
Todd is very personable and appears to be a good fit for my up and coming drum lessons.
Adam is a great teacher. To start, he is a personable guy; I have never found lessons overly tedious in part because he makes people feel at ease. He is also flexible to your interests and abilities in music so that you literally start learning songs and styles you like from day one. Adam's grasp of music theory and, in my case, the guitar, is routinely amazing in its complexity and depth. On multiple occasions, if I was having particular trouble with certain chords on the guitar or something like that, he was able to provide alternative methods or styles that were easier for me, which I appreciated. Not only that, he's able to break those concepts down so that even someone with little exposure to music like myself could understand it. Within a 4 months of lessons with Adam, I was able competently play entry-level songs and am still improving by the week with his help.
Having my child take lessons with Paul was the best thing. He is attentive, great with children, and teaches them so well. My child already knows how to play songs! Its awesome!
