Patrick Michael Wickam is the Bill Nye of singing lessons. With him, you cant help but become better. In short, with performers career center, greatness is inevitable.
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.
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.
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!
Mr. Salinas provided our event with elegant, soothing piano music which helped the evening run smoothly and for our fundraiser to meet its financial goals!
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
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.
Chris is a very talented player, and great teacher. Easy to talk to and he's eager to help me improve. The lessons are 100% customized to your skill level. I've been playing for over 15 years and he's taught me a ton so far.
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
I've been taking lessons from Jimi on guitar and bass for years. Excellent teacher.
Sean is a wonderful teacher and a great guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking music lessons.
Francis is very professional. His piano lessons are very tailored and engaging. I would highly recommend.
I've been getting piano lessons for a few months now, and we just started working on voice as well. Dave is knowledgeable, patient, and really wonderful to work with.
Before my lessons with Katryna, the only singing I've allowed myself was in my shower! She is an amazing teacher, who told me how to find and control my voice. Now I am planning to record a song as an anniversary present for my husband :) So whether you have high or low skills level I'd recommend Katryna for you 100%. Not only an experience teacher, but also a great person!
About 5 months ago my 7 year old daughter asked me if she could take piano lessons. No one in our family plays to teach her, so i took to the internet to find a local teacher. I came across Sara and contacted her - it was a random blind pick on my end, but she got back to me and seemed really happy to meet my daughter and see if it would be a good fit. We went for a "trial run" lesson to meet and my daughter instantly was not only very comfortable at her home studio, but LOVED Sara. She was instantly ready to take lessons! fast forward 5 months, Sara's holiday recital was a blast, my daughter played in front of a LOT of people, she can play 3 songs now, her music teacher in school has her play in front of her whole class (which has boosted her self esteem enormously) and she LOVES LOVES LOVES playing, and learning new songs with Sara. Sara is a REALLY good teacher - i cant believe what she has taught my daughter in such a short time. She has a great personality, real friendly, funny, smart, and amazing with kids. I got real lucky finding her randomly... but i wanted to write this review so anyone else who may be like me who is looking for someone to teach piano, can be assured that Sara is the real deal.
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
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
Marlene is such a fun and inspiring teacher! I always look forward to our lessons together. Marlene is expecially knowledgeable in building healthy piano technique which has been very helpful for me.
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!
I have been taking Piano lessons with Robert for the past month and a half. I started as a complete beginner and I've really enjoyed my lessons. Robert is an excellent teacher who provides a structured method to learning while also keeping you motivated throughout. I'm already able to play a few songs and I'm looking forward to getting better!
WHAT A TERRIFIC TEACHER. Sometimes, educators who have been teaching for a while forget what it's like to be the "learner" and can in turn be condescending, impatient, and unwilling to simplify difficult concepts for their students. JOE, on the other hand, was PROFESSIONAL, PATIENT, and PLEASANT. When explaining certain musical concepts to me, he explained it in my language. He encouraged me to ask as many questions as i could come up with; no question was off limits. He tailored the music lesson to my skill set, and even provided study material for me to work with in between our one-on-one lessons. I am excited again about playing piano and learning how to read music!!!!
