Jimi is the best! I took bass lessons from him for years- extremely knowledgeable and patient, an excellent teacher!
I've been learning from Dom for a bit shy of two months now and have been loving every minute of it. While I'm a neophyte on guitar, my mother is a music teacher (guitar/piano/voice) and I grew up with vocal coaching at various levels, so I have experience with a variety of music training. I found Dom to be incredibly responsive; as other reviewers have touched on, he starts from the very beginning with vital information that I merely glossed over when self-teaching other instruments, but he will quickly amp up the pace of your lessons to your speed of learning. At this point, I leave each lesson feeling challenged, but I come into the next week with enough understanding to grow and meet the next batch. I'm also taking bass lessons with him once a month, and the sessions dovetail nicely into each other. He has a wealth of music history and experience at his disposal and you would do well to take advantage of that. Also, he has two of the sweetest cats I've come across in a while, so there's that.
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.
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
I have been taking Piano lessons with Robert for the past month and a half. I started as a complete beginner and I've really enjoyed my lessons. Robert is an excellent teacher who provides a structured method to learning while also keeping you motivated throughout. I'm already able to play a few songs and I'm looking forward to getting better!
My 10-year-old son started taking bass lessons from Wayne three months ago. I couldn't be happier with the progress he has made. Wayne has stressed how to properly squeeze each note, hold his fret hand and sit with correct posture. In addition, my son is now reading basic sheet music. He also knows the names of most of the notes on his fretboard. Wayne always provides music lessons that he writes out personally and also provides associated MP3 audio files. My son is able to practice the lesson along with an audio track that serves as reinforcement. Wayne even transcribed a song that could be played with the actual music track. Wayne has an encouraging and positive attitude. There is a genuine excitement and passion in his teaching. I highly recommend.
Michael is a terrific teacher! He is everything a student of music could ask for in an instructor. I am a busy professional who decided randomly to start learning bass guitar and Michael has been a blast to learn from. First, he is very professional: he is punctual, responsive and very flexible when accommodating my very busy work schedule. He takes the lessons seriously: while we have a lot of fun, he is focused on making sure I am getting as much as I can out of each lesson. No time is wasted. Second, Michael has a great teaching method: we learn while having fun. I know so many other students of music who dread meeting with their teachers (they want to learn but hate the process). Michael makes the sometimes challenging process of learning a new instrument actually enjoyable. This may seem obvious to some but it's worth repeating: if you enjoy something, you'll want to do it more and get better at it. Michael brings that kind of energy to our lessons. Finally, Michael's rates are very reasonable especially considering how much I learn during each lesson. Anyone interested in learning an instrument should absolutely consider learning from Michael Karsh. You will not be disappointed.
I can't say enough fantastic things about Christopher. He taught my daughter in home guitar lessons. He is professional, responsible, easy to work with and a genius on guitar. He taught my daughter so much and she plays beautifully. I would recommend him to anyone!
Sean is a wonderful teacher and a great guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking music lessons.
The best Hebrew teacher I know !!! Dan‘s lessons are so much fun and before you notice you’ll be able to speak with your Israeli friends without any problem.
Lou is an incredibly accomplished guitarist who studied with, among others, Eddie Simon (Paul Simon's brother). I needed some structured guitar lessons that would allow me to understand chord structure better. Lou took me through understanding and practicing simple scales through more advanced chords. He always came prepared with charts and tablature for me to keep and his fee was incredibly reasonable. Plus he's really funny. :-)
His teaching is excellent , everything is broken down to my understanding and he is a friendly person. Literally love playing the guitar, Kevin is very comical and I enjoy the guitar lessons!
Steve can play & teach absolutely every genre of music on the bass, answer any question, demonstrate anything that you want to know and sightread difficult charts in seconds. He's the consummate bass player/instructor. The real deal!
Josh is quick to respond and easy to schedule lessons with. His lessons themselves are super efficient and he truly takes his students' goals into account to help design practice sessions for them that will get them playing quickly and well. He's knowledgeable and knows how to infuse some basic music theory into his teaching.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Chris for a few months now, and I can hear a clear difference in my playing. He is a great teacher, very patient and encouraging. As a fellow music teacher myself, I can say that his level of musicianship is very impressive. Chris is also very flexible with his scheduling, which is very helpful. I highly recommend him to everyone out there.
