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.

Patient, intelligent, talented… Those are just three of the qualities that Maxime displays as a guitar teacher. I started taking guitar lessons from him last year and to be honest, at first I was somewhat concerned about taking music lessons over the Internet. But it’s worked out quite well. And although I am a beginning guitar player, I’m not an inexperienced music student. After undergraduate studies in music. I went to Juilliard on scholarship before going on to perform all over the world. Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, recording contract with Sony. Recorded at Abbey Rd. Studios with the London Philharmonic, PBS radio and TV performances with leading orchestras and opera companies and along the way more voice lessons than I can remember…. 😬 so if there’s one thing I’ve done a lot of it’s take private music lessons. From a lot of people. Some good, some bad, and some great. And I have no qualms about recommending Max to either a beginning or advanced guitar student. He does a great job and is very organized in his teaching. So if you’re thinking of taking lessons give him a try. I think you’ll be very happy. Did I mention that is also a really nice guy…? 😎 Les young

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 had guitar lessons with Aaron for several years, and I highly recommend him as a teacher. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and very encouraging; he motivates you to do your best and takes a more creative, interesting approach to teach music (for example, I learned a lot about musical improvisation and composition, in addition to classical and spanish guitar techniques). He is one of the best teachers I have ever had—if you take lessons with him and are reasonably motivated, he will absolutely help you succeed in your musical goals.

Attila has taught my son in the last 6,5 years. They spent lot of memorable lessons together starting with simple children's songs ending with Blue bossa jazz standard. He is patient and has good sense of humor, wide range of music styles. Thanks to his work my son plays the guitar very well and he is the guitar player of the Big Band at the Music School. Highly recommended teacher.

Would highly recommend. Cameron makes it enjoyable for my 5 year old and teaches in a way that keeps him engaged and willing to learn. The program is fun for my son and I even hear him singing the songs from piano lesson while he's playing with his toys. As a working parent, I also appreciate that Cameron is flexible when our schedule needs to change.

I took piano lessons from Geoff 2 years ago and unfortunately due to financial issues had to quit. For the months that I was able to be taught by him, I loved how patient he was with me as well as the materials he gave me. I would definitely return to him if I was able to do so in the future

Ron taught piano to both my son (kindergarten through 6th grade) and daughter (first through fifth grade). Both children flourished under Ron's student-driven approach to learning. Ron is patient and kind and takes time to understand each child's unique learning requirements, while helping them find joy in their musicianship. He transitioned both children to different instruments at their request, and their piano foundation was extremely helpful in both cases. My son continues to meet with Ron a few times each month to study jazz guitar and bass. Both kids will always have a lifelong foundation in music, and a strong appreciation of it as well. Thank you Ron!

Alf is great teacher! I am very happy to have found him on Thumbtack. I started taking guitar lessons from him having no techinical knowledge in music or ability to play the guitar. He came to the store to help pick my first guitar! Barely 2 months into taking classes now, I can play several chords and maybe even a full song if I tried. He shows passion in teaching. His lessons are very clear for a beginner and he is genuinely interested in my progress. I high recommend Alf to anyone looking for guitar lessons.

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. :)

The amount of time and effort Austin dedicates to his music is truly inspiring! Just watching him talk and teach others about the guitar is amazing. He’s patience and truly enjoys explaining the different techniques and notes. Regardless of the amount of experience you have with guitar, I can bet after working with him you’ll have a greater appreciation for music in general!

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.

I took bass lessons from Don for a couple of years and it really expanded my abilities and confidence. I chose him as a teacher when I heard him play at a jam session and I said that's what I want to sound like! He is a professional, focused and organized teacher. I could not read a chart at all when I started with him and now I can, and I've got great notes and records from all the lessons I can review anytime. Don is the best.

I've been with Tamara for the past 11 years and I've had such an amazing musical experience. Starting with piano and then extending my class time to fit in guitar and ukelele lessons, she's one of the most talented and versatile musicians I know. In addition, class times were flexible. The teaching environment was always very comfortable and supportive. Allowing her students to play what they were interested in and giving them a chance to explore different genres of music really enhanced my understanding and interest for music.
