I am looking forward to continuing music lessons with David. I met him for the first time this week. I know that he will be able to achieve my goals. I was looking for a teacher that specifically can teach sight singing. I am more than confident that I'll be sight singing very soon. David is obviously is genuinely passionate about teaching. It is a career for him not just something done here and there. I'm lucky to have met him.
Bass lessons with Dom are amazing! He takes great care to patiently teach me music theory. His lessons are well-paced and informative. He is encouraging, skilled, and thorough. Learning from a guitar player as skilled as Dom is truly a dream. I can't wait for the day we will truly start jamming together!
I have been working with David as a bass teacher for a couple of months now to re-develop my skills and he has been a fantastic instructor. David has a great ability to read where you are in your development and come up with fun and relevant lessons to advance your development. He clearly has a deep knowledge of music theory but makes his lessons in theory much more interesting than any I've ever had and has me look forward to learning every week. David has made learning bass fun and I'd highly recommend him.
Annie was absolutely amazing. First of all, I'm not the most confident when it comes to singing, I enjoy singing, and I write songs, but I often feel like I couldn't deliver when it comes to singing them. That's when I started looking into getting some voice lessons to help with my technique and hopefully unlock a few things! Annie showed up right on time for our first meeting with a free consultation- (awesome! who gets free stuff nowadays in New York?). She asked me what I wanted to achieve and asked me to show her my songs (in which I was nervous about but got over it quickly because she was super open minded about it). She pointed out the good things I did in the recordings and then gave me some pointers on the parts I could work on further with her, perfect and yes please. We've had 3 lessons so far and worked on 2 songs to keep the lessons exciting. She gave me a few exercises to do on my own, helped with breathing techniques, and even advised on some dietary factors that would help keep my voice healthy. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who cares about your progress, listens, is non-judgmental (my biggest need for my shyness), and has a whole lot of knowledge to give!
Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.
Jimi is an amazing teacher. His versatility and depth of knowledge, not only of guitar, but of music theory make his style of instruction completely tailored to the interests of student. Jimi is a musician in his heart and his passion for music is tempered only by his intense humanity. There are no drills, there's no yelling. There's only an immersion in music and true scaffolding of skills. Additionally, you'll find yourself laughing and learning all the same in a way that breeds a true life long love of playing. My lessons with Jimi added a dimension to my life in knowing and understanding music that is truly like a 6th sense. He enablers me to shear the world in ways I never would have otherwise. Anyone would be well served to take lessons with him--or just to talk about music with him.
Francis is very professional. His piano lessons are very tailored and engaging. I would highly recommend.
Josh is an awesome instructor! Everything we worked on was based off of what I wanted to learn. He sequenced everything so I could be challenged and have stuff to work on but wasn't overwhelmed. He really knows his stuff, teaching me the technique of how to pick properly and the basics of music theory. My soloing sounded way better after only a few sessions! Josh is a great person and is very knowledgable, I highly recommend him for all levels of guitar
Steve has taught my daughter guitar for one year. He is an extremely talented and gifted teacher, able to convey the concepts at a level appropriate for the student. He also has a voluminous knowledge of music theory. Steve frequently stays after the lesson is over as he is truly interested in the student as a developing musician. I am certain you will find him a superb teacher.
working with sean was a great experience. as a beginner adult student, he was always very patient with me and understanding of my busy schedule. i found his lessons to be challenging and informative while at the same time being really fun. he never made learning piano feel like a chore. i learned a lot, not just how to play the piano, but also about music theory--the guy reall knows his stuff! i'd highly recommend sean to anyone at any level and was sad to find out he was leaving the bay area.
Josh is a great teacher who can not only instruct a student in the fundamentals of guitar, but is happy to take the time to help a student play his/her favorite songs/licks. His strong music education background allows him to drill down into the music theory behind songs and I think makes me a better player!
I have learned so much about singing. I look forward to lessons each week. I highly recommend Marty if u want to break down the mechanics of singing and learn music theory. Excellent instructor.
I've been getting piano lessons for a few months now, and we just started working on voice as well. Dave is knowledgeable, patient, and really wonderful to work with.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
My son had his first guitar lesson last week. Drew is punctual, professional, friendly, and great with kids.. it was easy to set up a day and time that works best for us. Looking forward to our next lesson. Lena
Inspiring jazz guitar lessons: technique, theory, chord melody, improvisation.
Brittany has a deep understanding of music as a gestalt from years of study and performance and can teach this tacit knowledge to her students in a clear, systematic way. Additionally, and as important, she develops her students' music and creative intuition. I am specifically interested in music theory and performance as it applies to Arabic music and creativity so that is a little bit rare to find in a 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!!
Just did my first lesson with Justin yesterday, he's awesome! Great guy, easy to talk to, and he's got a nice studio with air conditioning to practice in. Really comfortable environment and immediately felt trust in Justin's teaching. Will be continuing my lessons with him!
My 6yr old just had his first lesson with Lenny and is very excited for the next one. Lenny was very patient and relatable. We were very pleased!
Miranda is an excellent teacher. So far she has worked with me to create a lesson style that works for my specific goals, she has provided many exercises for me to use to warm up my voice and to increase range, and has explained to me a lot about the mechanics of singing. She is also a warm and welcoming person, and from the very first lesson I felt completely at ease. I definitely recommend her as a teacher for any age (I am 24) or level.
