I'm so happy that I chose to learn CPR, AED, and First Aid lessons from Ricardo Camacho Jr. He was very professional through out the whole lesson. For every single question my friend and I asked he had a answer to all of them. I felt very comfortable in the space where we learned everything. The videos that we watched was a lot of fun to watch, I never felt bored at all, I was very intrigued and interested in all of the videos we watched. I highly recommend everyone to take him. Thank you Ricardo.
I am one of Davids students and I can tell you he is an excellent music teacher as well as producer and vocal coach. I started my piano lessons with David and within 3 or so months I was already playing full songs. Currently I am recording an album project at Posterity Studios with David as my producer/engineer and vocal coach. I can tell you that so far what has been pre-produced is very impressive and I am enjoying the direction the album is taking. Not only am I having David provide some of the music, but I also have live instrumentation being recorded as well....guitars, drums, and bass along with my background vocalist. So if you are looking to take lessons for piano or for vocal lessons or plan on cutting an album, Posterity Studios is the place to go. I am pleased with the lessons and also with the work David is doing on my album project.
After years of being self-taught, I realized I wanted to take the next step and truly learn the instrument the right way. In just a month with Dom, it is clear that I chose the perfect teacher. His knowledge of guitar and experience in teaching has you learning to read sheet music and playing songs in just a few lessons. More importantly, Dom is encouraging and enthusiastic which inspires confidence in his students. He is patient, but continues to push you out of your comfort zone. It is clear that Dom cares deeply about the success of his students and I have developed a personal relationship that has me looking forward to the next lesson.
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.
Rae has been giving me one hour voice lessons for approx. two months, at her home. What impressed me is her vast experience, patience, and friendliness. She has gone above and beyond, and my voice has improved tremendously. I am very satisfied with the quality of her work and highly recommend her.
David is the best! I started lessons having never played guitar in my life, and already by the first lesson, I had learned so much and could begin to play. David really listens to what you want to accomplish and specifically guides you towards your goals. David is an expert and a great teacher.
Serge is an extremely skilled top notch coach and amazing instructor that genuinely cares about his students. His training sessions are very challenging and rewarding. My strength and endurance levels have greatly improved in such a short time since training with Serge. He has patience and will take the time to go over moves as many times as you need, in a supportive and encouraging way. You will sweat, train hard and learn a lot from each lesson. My training sessions were by far the BEST that I've ever experienced. What marks a phenomenal instructor is his ability to teach in a particular way that impacts every aspect of a students life, and that is what Serge has done for me and I'm truly thankful. Overall, I would highly recommend Serge to all without any hesitation. Josette-
I took voice lessons with Mara for 8 months during my pregnancy and I learned so much and improved enormously! She is an incredible teacher who gives clear instruction and strategies to optimize your voice. She's friendly and fun to work with. I highly recommend her.
Pamela is amazing. She has been my voice teacher for while now, and I always look forward to our lessons. She is kind, honest, and truly sees the talent in potential in all who come to her. I'm a actress by training and new to the singing world, and she has opened my eyes to how fun voice training is and how everyone can sing if they have the will and passion (and the right teacher, which she certainly is).
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.
Christine is a truly phenomenal teacher. If you have any hesitations about starting voice lessons because you are afraid of singing in front of other people, have no fear! Christine made me feel completely comfortable from the very first minute of our first lesson together. She is classically trained and extremely knowledgable about singing. I would recommend beginning lessons with her to get a solid technical foundation even if you eventually want to sing pop or R&B (i.e. she is not just for classical/opera singers!) That being said, I've met several of her other students and heard them sing and some are very serious students of the craft; she is an excellent teacher for experienced singers as well. During lessons, she plays her (baby?) grand piano in a large private area of her home. The walls in the singing area are filled with books of sheet music, but she also happily found specific songs online for me to work on when she didn't have the music already. She has an incredible ear- she truly listens to you and can pinpoint and explain to you exactly what to change (your posture or breathing, enunciation etc.) to instantly improve your tone and pitch. Improving your voice is a long process, and there are no magical tricks (except practice practice practice!). But with Christine as your guide, you will see improvement and most importantly, you will gain confidence. She truly believes in her students, which helps them believe in themselves too.
I've been a musical instrumentalist and wanted to learn the mechanics of how to control my voice as an instrument. I've had two lessons so far and have learned a ton. I've been pleased with the clarity and pacing of Dan's instruction. He records 4-5 min segments on my phone to review and practice. It's very effective.
Laura was a fantastic tutor, she always had well organized, pre-planned exercises for me to do in my lessons, these helped my grammar and reading abilities a lot! Moreover my conversation skills improved, as we constantly allotted time to practice and she taught me some of the more colloquial phrases used in Spain that are really useful, but not necessarily always covered in text books. Overall, Laura was a great help!! Thank you!
Lessons were a gift for my son. He’s very pleased so far and excited about the progress he’s made.
Guitar is a self-starting thing, but playing with Josh is like having a small conversation with an actual guitar sometimes. Nice way to motivate your self-starting with solid chord and technical lessons. Also, no shortage on positive reinforcement but not in a Zip-a-dee-doo-da Disney screwed up way.
Dave is an amazing instructor! He truly cares about his students. Keep an open mind when coming to his lessons, because I can assure you that his methods are to ensure that you enhance musically, but with correct techniques. Dave is patient and honest. He not only wants to see his students do well and improve in their lessons, but he also cares about his student's well-being. I am happy that I found Dave on thumbtack, by far the best decision, I have ever made. I have improved greatly within the year, and I know I'll continue.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
I have been taking piano classes with Mr. Boere for around six months. The communication was easy since the first lesson. He has a relaxing while demanding teaching style: One has the opportunity to practice the lesson while he goes over what is right and wrong, including finger position and even sitting position but he also makes ahre that one gets the opportunity to improvise even after the initial lessons. I am a beginner and as such, there have been times when I have thought about quitting because the challenges are big; however, I have found that with Mr. Boere's classes, while the challenge still exist, he finds a way to build on one's strengths and work from there. I recommend Mr. Boere to anyone willing to learn piano.
Very much enjoy working with Drew. He's done an amazing job of planning lessons around my interests/level. He's very professional and patient to boot.
As a newcomer to music who's also an adult (I'm 29 as of this post), I was really afraid of taking lessons, since most folks who are starting to learn are young. But Will made me feel very comfortable, treated me with respect, and gave me the advice I needed to feel confident in my journey. I plan on going back to him :)
I've had one lesson so far, and I'm very happy with my experience. The front office was very responsive in reaching out to me, and my teacher is excellent.
