Ed was recommended to me as a voice teacher by a good friend and fellow musician. I took voice lessons with Ed weekly for eight months until he moved from Virginia to Washington state. We will soon resume lessons using Skype. From the first lesson, I experienced immediate improvement with my singing. Ed is extremely knowledgeable and experienced regarding music in general, and using the voice as a musical instrument in particular. I feel very fortunate to have found him, and because of his easygoing nature, we have become good friends along the way. Ed's calm and comfortable personality makes the instructional process a very positive experience, and his depth of knowledge and experience regarding singing and performing in general will impress, if not amaze you. One of the projects we undertook as teacher and student was to prepare me for a vocal competition. I chose a song, and we dissected it, phrase by phrase, during the lessons leading up to the competition. No detail was left to chance including important aspects of the performance of the song, beyond just the singing. I had a great a great deal of confidence and a very enjoyable experience performing in the competition as a result. Ed obviously loves his work as an instructor because he is a lover of music, and it comes through in every interaction. I am very excited to resume my voice lessons with Ed using Skype. The only aspect of the entire experience that I would like to see changed or done differently would be if he decided to move back to Virginia and be our neighbor again!

Ryan is an awesome guitar teacher. I took acoustic guitar lessons with him for about a year and half and I learned so much in the process! If I had to describe his teaching style in three words, I'd say patient, flexible, and fun. He is understanding and caters his teaching to your musical goals. If you are looking to just learn riffs to your favorite songs, he'll help you with that. If you'd prefer to learn all the theory behind the music, he can help you there, too.

I had been playing guitar on my own for about 15 yrs. At my first lesson Joe asked me to play something, saw where I was in my ability and tailors my lessons to my skill level. He has Great attention to detail. Joe not only corrected my strumming technique immediately but explained why and demonstrated how the correct way is more effective. Joe also plays in 2 local bands which allows his students the ability to go see him peform. Great Teacher!!!!

Dennis is wonderful at helping me accomplish the goals I’ve set for myself and I highly recommend him as a music teacher. Although I’m not a guitar student, I’ve had Dennis work with me to help develop my skills with jazz. He makes lessons both interesting and challenging yet never leaves me feeling discouraged or feeling that that something is too difficult. I love that he gives me many strategies for learning new pieces, for developing my ear, and for improving my competence as a jazz musician (rhythmically, technically, harmonically, etc). I especially like that everything we work at gets applied in the context of playing real tunes – nothing is ever given in isolation without going on to the application of the skill during the lesson. I’ve been working with Dennis for 3 years now and continue to look forward to each lesson with him.

I am a beginner beginner piano player who approached the idea of lessons because of my passion for songwriting. Austin's Studio has been wonderful, teaching me chords, scales, and how to understand sounds so I can start messing around and making songs even after the first lesson. I would describe our lessons as "modified jam sessions" where we talk theory and progressions. He also has been sososo kind as to lend me an electric piano while I look for an affordable piano to purchase. I would describe Austin's style of teaching as approachable, knowledgable & adaptable.

Angus is an incredible voice teacher, and has done much to help me improve my singing skills. He has been very patient in my development, and is always easy to reach if I have any questioms about his lessons - something he always makes sure to emphasize ever lesson. Angus has surpassed my expectations as a vocal instructor and I am very thankful for his expertise and instruction, and I look forward to working with him next year.

I began lessons with Brian as someone who has played in the past and can still read music. Despite this, he insisted on starting by not skipping the basic tools that would help me later on such as rhythmic clapping excercises and emphasizing the use of both hands while providing the accents in doing so. The pace begins slow but then quickly escalates the more comfortable you get. Brian's constant encouragement and patience in teaching basic principles set you up to begin practicing without feeling lost or discouraged. Brian was always willing to look up and transpose to a simpler version, any song I hoped to try, or he offered great reasons why I should hold off and what steps to take to get there. A fantastic teacher for anyone wanting results and willing to put the time in

    I am offering private lessons on guitar or bass. I am a trained, experienced professional musician with over twenty five years in the business. Method plans are tailored to suit the needs and aspirations of each student, so results come quickly. Lessons take place in my home studio, and are 30 minutes long, once per week. The rate is $80 per month which includes four lessons. There are no other charges; all recordings and written materials are included. References are available upon request. I accept all ages and levels. My youngest student is six, my oldest is sixty. Learn the basics with chords and play some of your favorite songs, or delve into advanced harmony, scales and improvisation. Over the years, I have played jazz, blues, country, rock and more. I love what I do and it shows in the playing of my students.


    I became a piano teacher to help people transform their lives through music, and I want to see you accomplish more than you can on your own. It is difficult to find the time and motivation, so I will push you to accomplish your goals.


    I provide high-quality, comprehensive, and professional vocal instruction for middle school through adult students. I am a professional teacher with 46 years of experience in high school and colleges in Indiana, New York and Germany.


    We provide unconventional guitar and bass lessons lessons that you won't experience with a classical teacher. Anyone interested in learning quickly will do just that.


    I am a private vocal instructor based in Central New York State. My career as a private voice teacher began when I was a sophomore in high school with my own private studio of nine students with whom I met weekly. I temporarily disbanded my studio in 2013 but would like to begin teaching again now that I have more tools to shape and guide students as they work to find their voices and enjoy music making.


    I am a guitar teacher based out of Syracuse, NY. I have novice knowledge of guitar technique and theory. Whether you're looking to just learn some chords to play on your acoustic guitar around the camp fire, learn how to improvise with your friends in a jam session, learn about guitar theory and technique, or just want to increase your overall ability to learn and play music, I'm here to teach you. I've wanted to start teaching guitar to people a while ago, but could never really find a place to get started. I’m motivated and very interested in teaching what I think is an amazing art to anyone and everyone who wants to learn. Starting from the time I’ve written this, I’ve played guitar coming on 6 years now. I'm very dedicated to my art, and I love the feeling of showing other people that they can harness the power of music in their hands. It's a very good feeling to express yourself this way, plus it makes you look kind of cool.


    I offer aspiring musicians expert guidance through the often confusing first stages of learning an instrument. I will walk you the process of finger development, and technique (which most teachers neglect). I take pride in getting my students to reach their "a-ha" moments concerning chord, scales, and harmonic theory. Learn how to play your favorite songs, jam tastefully, or even write your own music!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is CPR training?

    Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

    How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

    You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

    What does a Spanish tutor do?

    The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

    A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

    What is first aid training?

    With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

    First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

    • Asthma attack
    • Anaphylaxis
    • Burns
    • Choking
    • Diabetic emergencies
    • External bleeding
    • Heart attack
    • Poisoning
    • Neck, head or back injury
    • Stroke
    • Seizure

    First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

    How much do Spanish tutors charge?

    Nationally, the average cost for a Spanish tutor ranges from $30 to $40 per hour. The cost for a Spanish tutor can vary depending on whether you choose private instruction or group lessons. Geographic location can affect cost; tutors in expensive cities and pricier regions command higher rates than in rural areas and small towns. The experience and education of the Spanish tutor will also affect their rates. For adult education, many people learning Spanish choose to join a Spanish school with tutors who teach group classes and also offer private tutoring for students. Typically these schools charge a monthly tuition that gives students access to a set number of classes per week, with private tutoring available at an additional cost. One example of an average cost is a monthly tuition of $200, which includes five 90-minute group lessons per month. Monthly tuition can vary depending on the school and the teachers. Short-term workshops are also a way to learn Spanish. Students may work with a Spanish tutor and group of other students at their skill level for a short period of time. One example of an average price is $100 for an eight-week course, with one 60-minute group class per week.
