To say that Dom Minasi is an unbelievably talented musician is to paint a fraction of the whole picture. Yes, the man thinks music with every single breath and feels it with every fiber of his being. Yes, he has deconstructed every standard jazz tune known to mankind, only to re construct his very distinctive own version. As a teacher, you would be hard pressed to find someone as invested as Dom in passing down "the tricks" to save you enormous amounts of time trying to figure things out otherwise. He has written so much literature about music, musicians, on every subject, he has taught for over 50 years, (50 YEARS!!) at all levels from young to old, beginners to pros, there is hardly an instance he has not experienced in teaching. I, for one, must be the worst student Dom has ever had, because I come to his lessons highly unprepared, but Dom still keeps drilling concepts and notions and makes and sends me videos, articles, references, anything that will get my butt moving, as well as helping me overcome my insecurities about playing the instrument. He essentially believes in his students and will stop at nothing to see them succeed (Very stubborn individual, this one). I have a lot to thank Dom for as a teacher, not to mention the friendship that naturally blossoms when you work with the man. Could not get a better experience than this. I better go practice now!

Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!

My son, age 14, had his first lesson private lesson with Serge last week and love it! Serge is a professional and obviously well versed in Krav Maga. He is also a very good instructor, explaining the moves but kept the class fast paced and fun. We bought a 5 class private package for a great price. Would highly recommend!

I have had many tutors in the past and Gloria is by far the best I have experienced. She is so patient and thorough in her lessons. I already feel much more confident using Spanish in conversation in the short time I have been working with her. I highly recommend Gloria to anyone looking to learn Spanish at any level.

Mara's been great with helping me get back into vocal shape after several years off. I had four weeks to prepare for a show I was not ready for and with Mara's help I was fine. She is wonderfully flexible about scheduling and location. Mara is friendly, approachable, she tailors lessons to what I want and need, but also isn't afraid to challenge me when I need that too. She's helped me work on songs I have no sheet music for, even offered to throw something together to work with! I'm so happy with my lessons and hope to continue working with her for a long time.

Ms. Thomas is a wonderful teacher who is quite knowledgeable of the operatic repertoire. Already after a few lessons I am learning how to release jaw and tongue tension, and to better connect my breath to the body. I highly recommend her for introductory students as well as those pursuing an operatic career.

Annie is a total godsend for anyone with a semblance of self-consciousness or hesitation about letting their true selves shine. Her approach to technique involves a lot of relaxation and emphasis on letting your natural voice shine, which is huge for anyone (speaking from experience) who's pre-programmed to have a certain "poise" to their vocal technique. Annie is amazingly approachable and easy to get along with, and she's become a cherished mentor after only a handful of official lessons. Highly recommended and hugely influential if you happen to have past vocal training and are looking for a more liberated, natural way to perform!

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.

Francis has been amazing with my 12 year old son. He has taken lessons over the years here and there but nobody has inspired him the way Francis has.. he would complain about practicing abc would never do it without a major struggle. Now, it is not uncommon that my so. Will play the piano for hours after Francis leaves.. what a wonderful blessing!! I would highly recommend Francis!

Anette is incredibly knowledgeable and capable when it comes to the voice and music in general. I'm amazed at how many times I've come away from a lesson with a new tool or perspective for my singing. She keeps it interesting and above all else relevant to what you are looking to achieve, curtailing lessons specifically to your abilities and progress. In the music world, where there are countless teachers, styles and approaches, I am certain that Anette's value add as an instructor is absolutely top notch. If you put the effort in, you will certainly get a great return on your investment with her guidance.

Amazing vocal teacher! Nicky is a great vocal teacher who is kind and patient. She has been working with my 11 year daughter for about 3 years. Nicky makes the extra effort to use age appropriate songs and part of the lesson includes music theory. Win win! My daughter can’t commit to the practice time necessary with an instrument, so we went with vocal lessons with Nicky. With singing she can practice any time and anywhere. Nicky has been able to bring out some beautiful notes, making this mom very proud. Can’t beat the price - she comes to our home and is a very accommodating with our crazy schedule. Again she is an AMAZING vocal teacher!!

She made me feel super at ease from the very start. Always showed up to lessons with a plan A and a plan B, so that I could be the one to decide how I wanted to tailor my lessons. Loved that! I improved so much from her lessons, not only in actual skills but in confidence as well. Such a genuine person with so much talent to share!!

Working with Humberto has been fantastic. He will structure lessons to what you want from the experience. For me we are working on strong foundational knowledge of Spanish so that I can converse causally and in a business environment. I am quite enjoying the sessions.

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
