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 took voice lessons ages ago and have been thinking about picking them up again. After doing some research I decided to go with David. I am so glad I did. He is professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He has a very great teaching style and he obviously knows what he's talking about. I'm very pleased with my experience so far and will recommend him to anyone that wants to improve any part of their singing.
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.
Gloria is a fantastic tutor. She is well prepared energetic and thoughtful.mshe came to class with lessons specifically designed for me and my level of Spanish. She is very good at correcting without losing the flow of the class. I've had three Spanish tutors, and Hloria is by far the best. I hope to be able to hire her again soon. She is a gem!
We have learned how to use proper breathing techniques to improve our range, and have gained more confidence in our abilities. Rae has a lot of patience and shared many pearls of wisdom with us. We look forward to more lessons!
David is knowledgeable and committed to making me a better player! He makes the lessons fun and I feel like we get a lot done during our times together. The rates are reasonable and I feel like he encourages me.
Serge went out of his way to meet me earlier than usual. He was both professional and friendly. Informative and patient. He cares! In our first lesson I learned so much. He covered the basics along with a few moves. Serge is the real thing. I can comfortably recommend him.
Mara is an incredible instructor. My voice lessons have been so comfortable and non judgemental, especially considering how awkward learning to sing can be early on. My voice was improving significantly after just a few lessons.
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.
Michelle is an amazing & wonderful teacher! She is animated and engaging and very knowledgable. My eight year old daughter takes piano as well as voice lessons from Michelle, and she really looks forward to their meetings every week! I highly recommend Michelle!!
Christine is very kind, helpful, patient, and encouraging. I have never taken voice lessons before, and she has helped me feel confident with my voice in just a short time period. I couldn't have asked for a better first instructor for my vocal training.
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!
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 clearly very skilled with a guitar and has taught many students before. He will tailor the lessons towards what you would most want to learn, and in that sense he is very flexible. He is extremely friendly and punctual. Even in my first lesson he was able to help my technical ability improve dramatically, and I'm much more confident of being able to pick up new songs quickly. I look forward every week to the lessons.
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.
I'm really learning a lot with Viky. She has the fundamentals down and is able to teach them. I'm really enjoying the lessons
Working with Oriana has been a wonderful experience. She challenges you, but still moves at a pace that allows you to grasp each new concept. Every lesson is customized and I feel that she is truly invested in my progress. Our piano lessons are one of the highlights of my week!
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.
Joyce has been teaching my son trumpet for 3 years. How do I appreciate her? Let me count the ways! - Son played trumpet in school band throughout middle school before starting lessons with Joyce. He strongly resisted learning to sight read all those years. Joyce had him (happily!) sight reading within the first few months. - Joyce helped my son correct some technique problems which were frustrating him. His progress was impressive, and he won a coveted spot in the area all-state band. - Joyce is open to working with music that her students enjoy. Jazz improvisation has become a staple of lessons that my son looks forward to, and solos in his school jazz band have flowed from this. - Whenever I listen in on lessons I always hear laughter. Even when my son is tired and grumpy before a lesson, he comes out of the lesson feeling great. -Joyce loves cats! Your cat will be treated like royalty whenever Joyce is around.
Michelle is not only a wonderful person she is a remarkable teacher. I sing with Michelle in the Schiller NJ Chorus and have private singing lessons with her. Not only is her voice glorious but her teaching style covers the many aspects of singing; anatomy, music theory, voice control/development and gentle informative critiques. She’s the best!
I really enjoy my lessons with Martha. She is very helpful and its great that she has been able to tailor our lessons to my specific needs and goals for bettering my grasp of Spanish. It is really clear that she is a great teacher who cares for her students. I would definitely recommend her to others who want to improve their skills.
