Lori is intuitive about how she teaches. I am sure if you are already a good musician or singer you will get better. I was never able to sing and we dealt with that successfully. She gave constant positive feedback and taught with enthusiasm. She presents herself as scattered and loves her persona. However, she is professional where it counts - her and my music. She will focus where you want but given the choice, she will start with the big issues and gradually work do the small ones always supporting you and encouraging you. She is very excited about getting a new white piano. She is excited about music, teaching, life.

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.

Absolutely wonderful! Everyone at our wedding agreed that she was the perfect addition to our ceremony! Her music was amazing and I could not think of anything else I would want to walk down the isle to! She was so sweet and helpful! She has a website with many songs that you can listen to her play to decide what you would like. She will play some songs that aren’t listed on the website as well. She knew how to play every song that we had in mind for our ceremony! People were really amazed with her skill and music during our ceremony. We got married over a week ago and my family is still talking about how wonderful she was!

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!

Ms. Howe has helped me so much with my singing and musicality. She is such an amazing teacher! I loved every single minute of my lesson with her and my vocal skills have improved so much! Working with her at private lessons and also several musicals, has been such a great experience for me. Within just 30 minutes, I can get so much feedback and advice from her. She gives honest opinions and comments to me which have really helped me become a better singer. Without her, I wouldn't have been the singer and person I am today. Thank you!

Verified review

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

About

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

About

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!
