I love working with Rae! She is on the east coast and I'm on the west coast, so I'm grateful for the internet! I've been told my whole life that I can't carry a tune. So I've always whispered when singing in public to make sure no one could hear the horrible sounds coming out of my mouth. But for professional reasons, I wanted to give singing a real try. Rae has taught me that singing is a skill that anyone can learn. And she's right! We are about a month and a half into our lessons, and I'm getting better with each lesson. I'm singing with more confidence. Rae is a wonderful teacher and supporter. I am so grateful for her work! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

My son, age 14, had his first lesson private lesson with Serge last week and love it! Serge is a professional and obviously well versed in Krav Maga. He is also a very good instructor, explaining the moves but kept the class fast paced and fun. We bought a 5 class private package for a great price. Would highly recommend!

To say that Dom Minasi is an unbelievably talented musician is to paint a fraction of the whole picture. Yes, the man thinks music with every single breath and feels it with every fiber of his being. Yes, he has deconstructed every standard jazz tune known to mankind, only to re construct his very distinctive own version. As a teacher, you would be hard pressed to find someone as invested as Dom in passing down "the tricks" to save you enormous amounts of time trying to figure things out otherwise. He has written so much literature about music, musicians, on every subject, he has taught for over 50 years, (50 YEARS!!) at all levels from young to old, beginners to pros, there is hardly an instance he has not experienced in teaching. I, for one, must be the worst student Dom has ever had, because I come to his lessons highly unprepared, but Dom still keeps drilling concepts and notions and makes and sends me videos, articles, references, anything that will get my butt moving, as well as helping me overcome my insecurities about playing the instrument. He essentially believes in his students and will stop at nothing to see them succeed (Very stubborn individual, this one). I have a lot to thank Dom for as a teacher, not to mention the friendship that naturally blossoms when you work with the man. Could not get a better experience than this. I better go practice now!

Mara's been great with helping me get back into vocal shape after several years off. I had four weeks to prepare for a show I was not ready for and with Mara's help I was fine. She is wonderfully flexible about scheduling and location. Mara is friendly, approachable, she tailors lessons to what I want and need, but also isn't afraid to challenge me when I need that too. She's helped me work on songs I have no sheet music for, even offered to throw something together to work with! I'm so happy with my lessons and hope to continue working with her for a long time.

Pamela is wonderful! She's kind, knowledgeable, encouraging and packs so much into her hour lesson. My only downside is I haven't been practicing enough between lessons. But even with that weakness on my part, I'm seeing big improvents just from our sessions. I've had eight so far. Now that I'm committed to practicing every day , who knows how far I'll go? So glad I found Pamela!! She's great!!!

I actually got in touch with Jimi through Thumbtack, and was pleased with the lessons I got right from the start. We're working on music theory and composition, and I managed to learn something I regarded as monstrously difficult for years in the span of a month or two. Jimi makes music accessible and "not scary", adapting his lessons to each student's needs. Highly recommended.

Taking lessons at Eugene’s Music Studio has been so good for my son’s love of piano. I used to hear him cautiously playing notes to simple songs, but after having lessons with Eugene I hear him confidently playing songs and quickly moving on to harder pieces! I’m so happy with the progress my son has made with Eugene.

I cannot say enough great things about working with Dave. As a complete newbie to piano, I was nervous about starting lessons. Dave has been incredibly kind, helpful, and informative. I'm about five lessons in and already have a level of familiarity with the instrument that I never expected. Dave's lessons are well structured and leave me feeling excited to continue my practice. Highly recommended!

"The most wonderful thing about Jonathan Segal, besides incredible musicality, his kindness, and his uncanny ability to pun, is the way he "gets" my kid. He tailors his lessons specifically to fit my son's interests and talents and quirks, he knows how to inspire him, make music fun for him, when to push him forward and when to let him take the lead. I couldn't imagine a better piano teacher for my, or anyone's child." Cindy K.

Amazing vocal teacher! Nicky is a great vocal teacher who is kind and patient. She has been working with my 11 year daughter for about 3 years. Nicky makes the extra effort to use age appropriate songs and part of the lesson includes music theory. Win win! My daughter can’t commit to the practice time necessary with an instrument, so we went with vocal lessons with Nicky. With singing she can practice any time and anywhere. Nicky has been able to bring out some beautiful notes, making this mom very proud. Can’t beat the price - she comes to our home and is a very accommodating with our crazy schedule. Again she is an AMAZING vocal teacher!!

Corinn has taught my two daughters (13 & 15) piano and voice for the past 3 years. She is the best teacher we have had and we are thrilled that she has moved with us, by sheer luck, from London to NJ! She is extremely reliable and conscientious and is a talented and patient teacher who challenges my girls as individuals and has helped improve their skills tremendously. They look forward to their lessons with Corinn and feel as very comfortable with her. She is a very talented singer and pianist and is passing on her love of music to our daughters. We feel very lucky to have her influence in their lives.

I started lessons with David Chang a month and a half ago and everything has been going great ever since. Initially, I was concerned that I wouldn’t be able to play any instruments in my life, since my hands sweet excessively at random times mostly all of the time. David did a great job showing me over the past few weeks through his teachings that the problem with my hands isn’t a problem at all when it comes to playing the piano. He also spent a lot of time outside of our lessons assisting me with purchasing the right piano so that I could practice his techniques on my own time. He has a ton of patience and actually seems genuinely interested in the success of his students.

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.
