Drum lesson for a total beginner - and Mike was terrific: kind, reassuring, extremely knowledgable. He had me playing to Hey, Jude before the session was over. And maybe above all, he made the whole experience lots of fun.
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
I've been taking lessons with Tad for a few weeks now and I've been loving it! I came in as a total novice and Tad has helped with my confidence and technique as a drummer. His lessons are always very thorough and he's been patient with all of my questions, making sure that I understand all of the material :)
The drum lessons I've taken with John over the last few years have been invaluable to my drumming, whether it's solo in the studio or playing with others on stage. I had just started to play when we began lessons, working with stick control and timing. John provides an encouraging, positive atmosphere to build skills in technique and efficiency, and outlines practices and exercises to do on my own outside of the lessons. He also introduced me to essential warm up stretches and exercises, which are very handy for endurance or just ensuring I don't wear down too quickly while playing. John's lessons have been paramount to my goal of collaborating and performing with other musicians; I've advanced greatly since I first began studying with him. Highly recommended if you're just starting to play (as I was) or to fine tune your methods and learn something new if you've already been playing a while!
David's a great teacher! I'm a total novice to both drums and playing music, and he's done a great job explaining to me how things work and what I need to know in order to play well. His lessons and homework assignments keep me advancing at a solid pace - not too fast and not too slow. I was very nervous to play at first, but he's encouraging and supportive, and he makes it fun, so every lesson I leave feeling a little more confident. I recommend him to anyone, no matter their skill level!
Conor seems to be very calm and patient. Neha is very responsive and very good to work with in setting you up with a great teacher got your specific instrument. I look forward to the lessons and I felt very comfortable. I’m excited!
Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.
I have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.
I sing on my church choir and noticed that I wasn't connecting to the directions of the music director. Terrence taught my son piano several years ago and was on his second year teaching my daughter. So I began taking voice lessons with Terrence and began learning how to control my breathing and protecting my vocal cords as well as learning about tone, pitch and stamina. I look forward to our next set of lessons which also fits my budget!
Liv had the most wonderful experience with her first year of learning the ukulele. She loved her instructor and is now playing some great songs. We can't wait to continue and even get into guitar lessons as well!
Having drum lessons with Zak was an amazing experience for me; I love the way how Zak dictates his class and how he can make you feel truly conected with the instrument. Also is awesome the patience he has, and the good vibes emanating from him all the time.
Gerald is extremely knowledgeable, talented and professional. My son started taking drum lessons from him when he was 5, and Gerald has motivated and inspired him even when the lessons became challenging. Gerald has an incredible work ethic and an infinite amount of patience!
I had an excellent video lesson on Lessonface. Not only did I learn a lot about my instrument...I also received many tips and hints in improving my performance. I look forward to my next lesson which will be in the near future. All around I give it 5 stars.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Scott for about 2 1/2 years. I love that he comes to our home and I also love being able to hear how the lesson is progressing. Scott is a patient and talented instructor, he makes her feel good when she does something well and he keeps her focused as they review things she has trouble with. We are very pleased!
I have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.
I started lessons with Anthony in December. Throughout my life I have had 3 guitar teachers before him, for as long as a year, and have never been better than I am right now (this is also in half the session time as previous teachers had me start with 1hr sessions). For the first time in my life I am confident to say "I play guitar," despite having started lessons when I was still in elementary school! His knowledge of the guitar, calm demeanour and method of teaching have me more comfortable than ever with a guitar in my hands. I'm confident transitioning between chords, as well as barre chords for the first time in my life! Oh, and now I can read music! Within the first month I was already able to start picking up and learning a few songs and now I can play most songs that I try to learn, picking up the chord progressions rather simply for most songs I attempt. Right now we are still progressing to get better each week, learning cool finger techniques and scales! After just a small time with Anthony I've developed a love and passion for playing the guitar, which has turned into an almost therapeutic experience right in the palm of my hands! Can't say enough good things about Anthony, and if your on the fence then I would say don't wait, start as soon as you can! You will be glad you did as right from day 1, Anthony will leave you amazed with what he can teach you!
I had several lessons in basic theory with Andy. He provided learning materials to meet me at my level - elementary, compared to his advanced level. A good listener, Andy not only taught me the foundational elements I was looking for -- he also gave me insights into learning and practicing I didn't know I needed ::: Andy, imo, is a hugely talented, multi-disciplined, musician who has the capacity to educate, as well as compose/entertain.
Jay is the best!! I have absolutely no rhythm, but I needed to learn three songs on the drums and somehow - quite magically - made it work. He's patient and kind and smart and funny and, best of all, seriously knows his stuff. We had a blast and I totally rocked out!! I 100% recommend Jay without reservation.
My son has been taking lessons with Jim for 2 years. Jim is a gift! He is so patient and positive, making every lesson fun for my son. He looks forward to his lesson every week. I highly recommend Jim!
My son is starting his third year with Mr. Lane and has gained a solid foundation in reading and rudiments, and has steadily progressed in his technique. Highly recommend.
