Amazing vocal coach!!!!! Highly recommend. My voice/confidence has improved greatly since my first lesson.
I was very new to the music world when I signed up for basic lessons in singing on thumbtack. I took at least 15 lessons in three months with Ed Cohn. Beginning with breathing exercises, Ed has taught me very helpful vocal exercises using vowel sounds, Ed also taught me ear training techniques using Solfège. Ed also encouraged me to buy a keyboard to further improve my tone/pitch matching skills. I also learnt a thing or two about reading musical notes, understanding music scales, chords and rhythm.
Ryan is an awesome teacher. His talent and love for music really show. I've taken guitar lessons one-on-one with him for almost a year and have also worked with him through the Rock School program. He knows how to challenge his students while keeping things fun and enjoyable.
Joe is an excellent guitar player with a great deal of knowledge to pass along. As an unorthodox student (someone with previous self taught experience who has not played in several years), he has helped me get back to where I once was and start to advance beyond that in just a few lessons. His lessons are also very reasonably priced.
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.
My son's voice lessons went very well, he really likes Erica and her sincere approach to making him a better singer. Its an obvious passion for her!
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.
If anything, Melissa Howe definitely knows what she's talking about. She uses her magical vocal powers for good. Ive learned so much from her in only a few lessons. Mel is a miracle worker. If theres anyone out there you should get vocal lessons from, its Melissa Howe.
I met with Will yesterday after taking lessons with a lot of guitar teachers over the past few months. Will is an extremely talented teacher, guitar player and musician! The experience with him was so above and beyond what I received from the rest (several of which are on Thumbtack). He makes you very comfortable, explains things so they're very easy to understand. He even included video, so I can watch him play the exercises as many times as I need. Will is worth every penny and I won't be going anywhere else!
Wonderful! Cant wait to return next wk. Love her!
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 highly recommend taking lessons with Kyle Cushman, He is a great teacher and taking lessons with him made me a better guitarist.
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.
Great vocal coach! Extremely visual and creative with friending and educating about the voice. I was not nervous at all, he lead to reassure the Tmosphere was welcoming and friendly. Very respectful with no attitude or ego! I will be back
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 real Music Educator. I have been involved with Skaneateles, Liverpool, Bishop Grimes, Holy Cross and I am now with the Westmoreland High School Marching Band and Onondaga Community College as an adjunct professor.
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.
I teach all ages focusing on the beginning student. I use appropriate games and theory to help make the lesson fun. I offer affordable and negotiable rates for parents with more than one child.
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 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.
