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 daughters are taking lessons from Carly and Megan for last few months and my girls love them. Carly loves what she is doing and my daughter enjoys her lessons. I tried few other teachers and music school before starting with Carly and this is what I was looking for my daughter. Carly is very talented and makes all her lessons fun, to keep my daughter always interested. She is very flexible about timings and easily reachable on text and email. Megan is a very sweet teacher and she knows her stuff really well. My daughter got selected in all county and now in all district band under Megan's guidance. My daughter is always looking forward to her clarinet lessons.

This is the first time my son is learning Piano lessons. He is in kindergarten and is very naughty. Carly knows how to accommodate him very nicely. She is very patient and makes the lessons more interesting and fun. My son always waits for Fridays because Fridays are his piano lessons. I will highly recommend her.

Tyler is super knowledgeable and very friendly. The lessons are tailored to the students' level and designed to stay interesting by learning technique and theory through songs the students select! He's also very patient, flexible and never rushes through our hour long lessons. I always feel like I am getting full value. I'd definitely recommend him to any level or age range!

We are so happy we found Italo for our 12 year old son for his guitar lessons. He has really progressed and developed interested in music and is already able to play many songs after just a few lessons. Italo displays a sincere passion in teaching and his energy and enthusiasm is very inspiring.

Justin does a wonderful job of instilling a general love of and appreciation for music inn our 10 year old girl. We hired him to teach guitar, but he also uses singing and our piano in the lessons. We all really like his holistic approach. Justin is laid back and very easy to get along with, as well as trustworthy. We highly recommend him!

Our 8 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Justin for a year and he loves it! Justin is so supportive and helpful in writing, singing and playing. We have been so pleased with our son's experience that my husband has signed up for lessons this fall. We couldn't say enough great things about Justin!

Lydia is a very good teacher using a very good program for quick results. This method will accelerate your learning and still get the full music theory background you will need as a piano player. I highly recommend Lydia and her Gifted Ear Music Studio.

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.

Holly did a great job teaching my son piano for many years. Even though she had her agenda for teaching piano, she was flexible to allow him to play some of his favorite music along with what was required. She encouraged him to participate in competitions, recitals, and compose music which only furthered his love of music and ability to perform for others. Holly truly has a passion for teaching piano!

I am an older adult voice student who has been working with Dr. Warren for several months. I contacted her initially because I wanted to get my voice back in shape for choral singing after not being in a choir/concert chorus for many years. She has been wonderful to work with! -- always positive, with a great sense of humor and lovely mezzo soprano voice as well-- giving me vocalises and songs that are expanding my range slowly but surely. It is especially helpful that she can demonstrate vocal techniques with her own well-developed voice, so that one can both observe mouth positions and hear desired sounds. With a doctorate in Musical Arts and more than 30 years of experience in voice training, choral conducting, and church music ministries, Dr. Warren has been able to answer every musical question I've ever asked her, and add to my musical knowledge with many other details about composers, musical scores, and repertoire. On occasion, she is enjoyably assisted in her teaching by her husband's beautiful red eclectus parrot in the next room who says a friendly "hello" or injects a whistle (of purity to be envied!) into a student's scale or song. I can't imagine any student who would not benefit from her encouragement and teaching style.

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.

Dr. Warren has the back of listening to the older student who simply wants to sing with her to condition her voice, and relearned notes and counting beats. I recommend her for any short-term program.

Leslie works with my 12 year old son weekly, training him in the areas of voice/singing, acting, piano, and commercial voiceover and on-camera. She cares very deeply for her students and with positive reinforcement and individualized training, helps them to grow -- nurturing their talents and attaining their goals by acquiring and developing real skills. Leslie so often goes the extra mile, putting in far more time and effort than would be expected in that quest to see her students succeed. In the two years she has been my son's teacher, I have not only seen his talents develop, but I have seen his confidence grow immensely. She is not only a wonderful teacher but, in addition, because of her background and years of personal experience as a true working professional in the industry, she is also knowledgeable about the ins and outs of what it takes to become a stage, film and commercial actor/artist. She has been able to share so much information with us in order to help my son down this path. I am so grateful that Leslie is available to mentor my son with her skills as a talent and a teacher and impart "real world" knowledge of the "business" with us. I would highly recommend Leslie to any and all who desire proper training and guidance in the performing arts. Mandy P.

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.

Carissa Wronski had been our daughter’s piano teacher for several years before she moved away, and she was the best piano teacher one could ever ask for!! Not only was she an excellent teacher in terms of her work quality, she was super friendly and gentle, yet firm and professional. She has a positive spirit and a caring heart, and my daughter was always inspired by her character. She knows how to motivate and challenge kids to grow and develop their talent. We’re so thankful that our daughter had the privilege of having Carissa as her piano teacher. We miss her so much, and we hope that someday she would come back. I highly, highly recommend her!!

I had 3 boys taking lessons with Carissa & we all loved her. My boys still miss her & I’m not sure she’ll ever be replaced! Her love for the piano would come across in her lessons. She is professional, thorough, sweet, and encouraging-she knew just when one of them needed a little boost. My boys learned so much from her & I'm so glad she was the one who gave them their start in piano!

We are so thankful for the time our three children had under Carissa's instruction. They blossomed as musicians. She is kind, yet firm. Her demeanor is always encouraging. Using her knowledge of theory and technique, she aided our children in performing excellently in local festivals and ajudications. I would eagerly recommend her for anyone looking for an excellent piano instructor.

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.

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!

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!

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.

I am so glad to have been referred to Alecia from a good friend! My child has been taking private piano lessons from Alecia for almost a year now. I did a lot of research beforehand on other people and even tried trial classes.... In the end, I chose Alecia, because of her patience and personal attention. I grew up forced to learn piano and as a result, did not enjoy it. I wanted the opposite for my children. Alecia has been able to make piano fun and interesting. She gives her full attention to my daughter and chooses songs for her that are tailored to her needs and creates a book just for her to play from. My daughter actually wants to practice and has picked up the instrument and music theory well. I would absolutely recommend her if you want your child to explore and deepen their knowledge of music for life, not just note learning.

Alecia is a very professional. She has a classy style and excellent piano skills. She would be an asset to any event.

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.
