Working with Caroline has been a huge pleasure! She is patient and will allow you to go at your own pace while challenging you to go further. I was able to start at an intermediate level after Caroline's assessment as I had had a couple of years of French as a pre-teen. Instead of starting at the beginning level, where I was sure I needed to be, Caroline was able to listen to and understand what I already knew and place me at a level where I'd grow and be challenged. Her business partner, Joe, is also wonderful as he was able to accommodate my sometimes awkward requests for scheduling. LingualMuse will work with you to get you where you need or want to be. They are both quite personable, which helps growth. I will continue practicing my French using the resources provided and purchased and then get back to regularly scheduled lessons with Caroline soon.

I am very happy with Craig as a teacher. He comes prepared to our lessons. Always looking for new things to push me to improve my skills. He listens and takes the time to understand my needs as a student. He clearly has a lot of practical guitar knowledge and is able to translate it into simple terms that I can understand.

Bob Wolfman’s lessons are a great way to improve your guitar playing. I was struggling to find things to practice that would keep me interested and moving forward and Bob’s structure really pushes his students playing while keeping the lessons fun and personal. I am fully satisfied with the lessons, and the skype format makes it easy to fit in my schedule.

Aaron Rosenberg is a wonderful teacher. I took private lessons from him covering a wide range of topics in music - solfege, theory, piano. I have had a great deal of musical training, and am an adult learner. Aaron treated me like an adult but progressively pushed me to a deeper understanding. Aaron found the pockets where I most needed to pull my experience and training together, and taught me a great many things in a short time. I highly recommend him as a music teacher.

As an adult student, I have been taking mandolin and guitar lessons from Steve for about two years. I would recommend him unquestionably to any prospective student looking to take music lessons. Steve is a down-to-earth instructor who is not only eager to help his students learn but demonstrably excellent at playing and teaching the instruments he teaches. Steve has introduced me to a variety of music from a theory viewpoint, but is eager to help his students define their own path, reflective of their particular musical tastes. I’ve played an array of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and classical music with Steve. Not only has my playing dramatically improved, but my appreciation for the music has improved exponentially. I’ve learned how to diatoni cally examine songs, understand rhythm signatures, identify different scales, solo, and perhaps most importantly, how to practice properly. Whether you’re just looking to play your favorite song, or become a lifelong student of your instrument, Steve is definitely the guy to help you along the path of musical discovery.

    Ian is a talented and patient teacher! I like that while we worked on the traditional lessons (e.g. scales and chords), he incorporated elements of my personal interests by letting me work with music I liked. He customizes each lesson for his students instead of a “cookie-cutter” approach. In terms of scheduling, he was very flexible. As a working professional and father, I would have to reschedule lessons occasionally and Ian would be understanding and helpful. I highly recommend Ian as a piano teacher for people of all ages!

    My Hannah over taking lessons with Mr Alex- they has such a strong bond. He made each lesson fun but they still got the work done. He is an excellent teacher and I would recommend him to anyone- from beginner to advanced levels.

    Even though I have only been with Owen for about a month he is a great person and always brings a smile to each lesson. He is friendly with everyone and is easy to get to know him. He is the second guitar teacher I have had since I have been in the STRIVE U college program and I like him better then the other guitar teacher I found online last summer. Owen has been teaching me how to write songs and play more on my guitar, We have been just doing chords and no lyrics yet but can already see some change in the song writing skills. We just started learning down with the sickness on guitar a couple weeks ago. I like doing song writing one half and playing guitar the other half. I would love to learn how to play more songs on my guitar and learn harder chords slowly as it is hard for my fingers to stretch on the guitar on certain chords and I would like to be challenged a bit and have my hands be challenged as well. being in this music program for lessons is a lot of fun and I am glad I tried it out.

    I have been taking lessons from Chris for about six years now. He is a fantastic teacher. He gives me challenging enough music so that I am always improving, but also lets me pick fun songs to learn so that I actually enjoy practicing. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

    From the moment I met Bethany, I knew it was a match made in heaven. I had never sung for anyone outside my immediate family and friends, so I was very nervous. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed and before I knew it, I was knee deep in my first voice lesson and loving it. I had so much fun and learned a lot that I didn't know in just one half-hour lesson. I look forward to many more voice lessons with Bethany and signed up for the next month already. She has great communication, honesty and a wonderful spirit. So happy I chose to take lessons with her!

    I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!

    I hired Dominic Sbrega to teach my son how to play upright bass. I am a very thorough researcher, so I called conductors of local orchestras and bands to try to find the best teacher for my son. I was surprised that Dom’s name came up so frequently, given that he was still in high school. However, even at his young age, he had a great local and national reputation. As a result, I decided to give Dom a chance. Though my son was studying classical music, he was also interested in jazz. Dom was adept at teaching both. Dom was extremely patient and always very clear in his instructions. Dom’s lessons managed to be both demanding yet fun. My son adored him, enjoying every second of his lessons. I could not imagine a better bass teacher.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is CPR training?

      Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

      How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

      You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

      What does a Spanish tutor do?

      The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

      A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

      What is first aid training?

      With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

      First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

      • Asthma attack
      • Anaphylaxis
      • Burns
      • Choking
      • Diabetic emergencies
      • External bleeding
      • Heart attack
      • Poisoning
      • Neck, head or back injury
      • Stroke
      • Seizure

      First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

      What do you learn in a first aid course?

      First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

      In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

      • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
      • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
      • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
      • First-, second- and third-degree burns
      • Poisoning
      • Choking
      • Bites and stings
      • Hypothermia or frostbite
      • Shock and seizures
