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.
Awesome teacher, he just jumps right in with you. Our first class I learned the basics of drums, names of each, some drum rudiments and then we went through some songs I liked and played along with the music. The lesson was fun, Mike is super easy going and provides lots of good feedback.
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!
I have never taken singing lessons before. With just a couple of lessons with Mara I have noticed a tremendous change in my vocals. I am able to reach notes that I did not know existed for me, I am in better control of my breathing, my phrasing is better and overall became more confident in my singing ability. Thanks Mara!
I have not been working with Pamela for long, so ask me again in a couple of months and I'll probably change to 5 stars! So far I enjoy my lessons and the exercises we do have already expanded my range. My high E used to be just a squeak but now I can really sing it after only a few lessons, and I even feel more confident with my lower range - something that has always been a struggle. I look forward to seeing what is in store with her guidance. I fully recommend Miss Pamela!
I took piano lessons from Gary for years and his program is fantastic. I learned to play the piano through songs that I loved, which made me want to continue with lessons as a kid. I am in college now and I still play the piano. Also, his rockonamerica program was a wonderful experience. I got to play rock music in a band with other kids my age. It was way cooler than any piano recital. I would definitely recommend taking music lessons with Gary; his lessons were a lot of fun and years later I still retain what I learned.
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
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.
Anette gave voice lessons to my 11 year old daughter. She was knowledgable, patient, and fun. She worked on songs that my daughter wanted to sing. She was understanding about school schedules. And it was great to be able to hear the entire lesson through dropbox.
Gregor is a kind and supportive teacher who made my lessons fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend him to anyone who is considering violin lessons for the first time or already an experienced player.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano 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 have been taking Bass Guitar and Drum lessons from Steve for over a year. Steve exhibits the utmost in professionalism and take the time to make sure I've mastered the task at hand before we move on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend Steve to any aspiring musician. Joe B
I have been working with Sophia for a year. Previous to my lessons with her, I had never taken voice other than choir as a high school class. I absolutely loved working with her! I feel like my music preference and her method really worked together swimmingly. (I am training musical theater songs)She taught me things I could do on my own (and these are things I still do everyday!) The amount my vocal range and confidence has changed in the past year is AMAZING and I can only thank her for the tools she gave me to become a better vocalist. I 100% recommend her if you are looking for someone who really cares about your voice AND you!
My daughter loves her violin teacher! We switched to City Strings from another music academy, and couldn't be happier!
Justin has been teaching my two daughters for several years now and they adore him. He doesn't just focus on teaching them how to play music, but also how to understand and appreciate all the facets of music. He takes the time to explain the theory behind the notes and why notes are played together. He is particularly sensitive and patient with my 15 year old special needs daughter. His thoughtfulness and gentleness with her has really helped her fine motor skills. I can't recommend Justin any stronger. He is an amazingly talented pianist and organist, and he is a wonderful and talented teacher.
I'm a bad singer who comes from a long, storied ancestry of bad singers. However, after only three vocal lessons with Corey, I have managed to make more progress than I thought would ever be possible. He is genuinely great at what he does. He is nothing short of a miracle worker.
nice guy who loves music and is very knowledgable
I started taking piano lessons as an adult and found Gab Kallay's teaching style to be excellent. She explained things very simply and catered the lesson to me. I also learned some vocal technique which was real helpful. I would highly recommend.
I'm an adult beginner and have been enjoying weekly lessons with Nancy for several months. Nancy is an excellent teacher who has the gentle knack of adjusting her approach and guidance as appropriate for each stage of a students development. She has an impressive command of music theory, but never overwhelms with it. Instead Nancy provides simple easy to follow practice suggestions including ear training and relaxation exercises that have helped me establish a foundation of musicality and continue to improve my singing.
I could never expect that I could have such a deep and warm sound. Emanuele really helped me to release all my tension and to feel free while I play.Thanks to him I have now a much more professional sound and a much more serious approach to the violin. Every lesson is a new experience, I really enjoy studying with him.
