It's hard to find the right piano teacher. But when I found Emily I knew I needed to look no further. I have been taking piano lessons on and off 20 years and within the first few lessons she taught me elements of theory and artistry that I had never seen from a teacher. She is patient, thoughtful and an expert in her craft. She listens and selects pieces that are inspirational to my taste and builds a curriculum to my skill level (intermediate) and pushes me just enough to help me feel confident while still learning new skills.

I have been taking electric guitar lessons for a 18 months and Samantha is an excellent teacher for players from any level. She has a depth of technical knowledge, different styles of playing and most importantly, she makes it fun and interesting. It is rare to find a skilled guitar player who is also a skilled teacher, and Samantha is both.

Max is an excellent teacher. He is patient and supportive and is able to tailor my guitar lessons to my interests. I had almost no experience with guitar, but I think I have progressed a lot in a short time with his help. I also really appreciate that he is able to come out to St. Johns for my lessons. If you are an adult looking for guitar lessons, I definitely recommend Max.

I started taking his piano lessons only about a month ago, but it''s been such a great joy to work with him. He constantly assesses my weaknesses and strengths, and plans my lessons accordingly. He also listens carefully to what I like and what I want to do, too. I live a bit far from his studio, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend him!

When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.

I am a 75 y/o individual with very limited musical skills and arthritis in my left hand. Who would take on such a challenging project.....Tim Bischof. Very patient, very knowledgeable, very skilled guitarist. I was having difficulty with the classical guitar when Tim put me in touch with Hawaiian slack key tuning which has re-energized my approach to learning the guitar. I can recommend Tim enthusiastically.

I'm a senior learner that has used several instructors in my years of learning guitar. Rory is the latest and the best so far. He has an easy style that has taught me more in a year than I've learned from all the others. From basic fingering exercises to understanding scales to learning to jam, I've learned both the how and the why to do things. He has tied more pieces together for me but helping me understand the big picture. I would highly recommend Rory as a guitar instructor for learners of all ages.

Helen, was AMAZING, she taught my 6 yr daughter her first piano lesson. We were going to try out a few different teachers, but after meeting her, I have no interest going anywhere else. Thank you for being so friendly and so talented! <3 A few things that were important to me were, 1. She could connect with my 6 year old. 2. That she could teach syllabus. 3. That she has opportunities for her students to perform during the year. She met all three of those. :)

My 10 year old son has been very interested in getting guitar lessons for about a year now, so I finally decided to do some research to find the best music school in the area. I asked some of his classmates for recommendations, and a few mentioned taking their children for lessons a Northwest School of Music, an that they really liked the instructors there. I read some reviews and went to visit one afternoon before my son got out of school. I spoke with Manny Martinez, the instructor who does the guitar lessons, and I could tell that he loves what he does. He has lots of experience and fantastic credentials and just seemed like a great teacher to learn from. My son has been going to him since January now. My son has been having a great time and has a real enthusiasm for it. Manny has done a great job in helping him to advance and develop his skills, and my son has been keeping up his end of the bargain (practice!) due in part to his instructors focus on making it really enjoyable. It's great to see my son devoting time to practicing because he loves impressing his instructor with his progress. Overall, I'm very happy I chose to sign my son up for lessons at the Northwest School of Music. The staff are fantastic, and they really motivate and encourage students. My daughter is interested in learning guitar as well now that her brother is having so much fun with it, and I'll be signing her up in the fall. The lessons are priced well, and the quality of instruction my child receives is worth every penny.

My Daughter went from never playing an instrument to being proficient on her trumpet in 8 months. Her band teacher is so impressed. Much of her understanding of music comes from her voice and trumpet lessons with Ms. Valardi. She is branching out into piano this summer and has even attempted to write her own solo. A music teacher that understands the excitement of a student and balances that with foundation is a wonderful thing to find. Ms Valardi is just that.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Priscilla for about 1 1/2 years and could not be more pleased. She is a wonderful teacher and an extremely knowledgeable and talented musician. Her lesson plans are designed to be motivating and enjoyable for me while also moving me steadily forward in becoming a better musician. I love her enthusiasm! I believe she truly enjoys teaching.

Tommy Bailey's Lessons

    About

    At 14 years of age, I picked up my first guitar; having no idea what to try first, I took to the Internet to find the right path. I quickly learned that while the Internet can be a very useful tool to learn a large abundance of things, there is nothing like having someone sit in front of you and show you the ropes. At 24 years of age now, I commit most of my time to my job as a race timing technician, but on the side, I love getting the chance to open the instrumental eyes of a new musician. I've played in several bands, taken several music courses in college, and still take pride in all of my instruments. My lessons generally start off with an acoustic guitar; if you do not have one, I can provide one for rent. I go into types of guitars (12 strings, bass, electric, etc.), and I provide various scales and chord diagrams to work on, on your own.

        My 12 year old has taken lessons after school individually and in a group, but didn't like the instruction, which I think was classical. He has a 3/4 size guitar he would like to learn to play, perhaps less classically and more casually?

        I've had various acoustic guitars off and on over the years, no lessons just learned some chords. Haven't played regularly in many years. Seem to just play basic 3-4 chord songs. ready to learn something new. Not sure if my fingering is even right for easy chord changes. Just strum chords no real note picking, looking to get to another level. Could probably find lessons on line, but need a little more hands on instruction.
