In my first lesson with Judy, she was able to discern what I'd been doing wrong that had been causing me difficulties getting into my mix voice. After a month of lessons, I can see significant improvement, and with Judy's extensive knowledge of pop vocals, I know I have much more to learn!

So happy with these lessons! Kris is a very talented musician and teacher, and I'm very glad I selected him from Thumbtack. I'm just a beginner and I can't believe how much I have learned. Kris is very patient and always accommodating in regards to scheduling. I would definitely recommend Kris to others looking for a piano instructor.

From the get-go Deanna's been a great piano teacher to our 5 year old and each week he races through the door to begin the lessons. It's only been a few months but we can sense his growing understanding of how the piano works. Anyone who helps my kid (or anyone's kid) learn to play and love music gets 5 stars.

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.

Greta has been teaching my 13 year old daughter voice lessons for over 6 months. She is a natural, enthusiastic teacher that easily puts my daughter at ease, helps her to feel confident and challenges her every lesson. Greta has great communication both with me and my daughter. She is always open to new ideas While maintaining a focus on the goals they have set. Every week i see how dedicated Greta is to my daughters growth, not just as a vocalist but as a young woman. It makes me so happy to know my daughter has another adult in her life that believes in her! It easily makes the hour drive back and forth every week worth the trip! And it should be noted Greta made the drive to see my daughter perform in her middle school play, and helped her prepare for her girls choir audition, which she she joined this fall!

Heidi is a gifted singer and vocal coach. Our daughter has had the pleasure of taking voice lessons from Heidi over a period of years and has blossomed under her supervision. Since studying under Heidi our daughter has been presented with many wonderful opportunities including being accepted into a magnet academy for children that are gifted musically, she has auditioned for many musical venues, made state choir and won state in solo for her age group. Heidi teaches creatively, uses positive reinforcement and is highly encouraging....she never gets short with her students and always has effective solutions to offer them when they hit vocal road blocks, enabling them to grow. We highly recommend Heidi to anyone in search of an expert for voice lessons in the Portland, Oregon metro area. Shari G. & Rob B.

I have been taking piano lessons from Anna Fisher for about a year now and have progressed faster than I ever thought possible. I'm an adult returning student and truly value her teaching style. She's patient and kind, and she can answer any question I come up with. Anna is very knowledgeable and offers her students a well-rounded musical experience. Not only does she help me with my piano playing, she also is training me in music theory. I look forward to my lessons every week and leave inspired and encouraged to keep practicing and learning. Anna is truly an artist, and I would highly recommend her to others.

Picking the right teacher is a critical step in your development as a guitar player no matter what level you’re at. I’ve had several teachers over the years, some more helpful than others. Here are some reasons why Erick Hailstone is the right guitar teacher for me. • The biggest value-add for me is Erick’s ability to arrange a song, any song, from standard boring arrangement out of a book to a unbelievably cool song with a Jazz or Blues twist with alt-chords throughout. No other teach I’ve encountered in the Portland Metro area does this. And he’s fast at it. He uses great tools in the process, so we can share files and collaborate. The alt-chords are seriously a differentiator how a song sounds and come with a bit of a wow factor. • Erick has the ability to take any complex problem and break it down into smaller issues to work on. He completely gets it when it comes to figuring out “okay, I’m at this level of playing but I’d like to get over here.” He’s got the roadmap to take me there. • As a player, Erick has every single characteristic that I’ve dreamt of having since I was a kid. Great tone/sound. Flawless playing. Shreds when the song calls for it. Steely Dan to Wes Montgomery and everything in between. He makes it look so easy. From the first time I saw him play 20 years ago until today I walk away shaking my head thinking how I’d love to play like that. It’s absolutely incredible. • Some of my most valuable takeaways have been nuggets of advice that have nothing to do with guitar technique. I can’t stress how meaningful this has been at times. Things like “Rule #1 for a guitar player: Never get in the way of the singer.” • Studying with Erick has helped me build up a rich library of exercises to practice with. Arpeggios, Scales, and licks. Right hand technique (which is much more important and much more difficult than I ever imagined), tasty chords and of course, songs. • Erick truly understands the theory behind every bar in a song and can articulate what is going on there. His understanding of music theory is vast. • One of the things I’m into is recording and often times my lessons are around problem solving with the recording process. My recordings have improved dramatically since I started collaborating with Erick on them. By my own choice, I’ve spent entire lessons just learning the ins and outs of some of the tools like Pro Logic. I can’t tell you how much time this has save me from fishing around on you-tube. • Lastly, we’ve been collaborating remotely via a program called zoom so I never even leave the house. This has a huge convenience factor and saves a bunch of commute time. It works pretty well to use zoom plus I have the added benefit of being able to record the sessions and review them later on. As I said earlier, picking the right teacher is a fork in the road critical decision to your development. I’ve had no regrets and am seriously loving the results. Bill Toner Tualatin, OR

Anya is an amazing teacher. She has great stories and multiple ways of explaining things. She creates a great learning environment for learning and has helped increased my confidence (which is why I wanted voice lessons). She has also successfully convinced me that I am actually a soprano and can hit notes I would have never thought possible. I always look forward to our lessons and working with her.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.  

What can you do with a first aid certificate?

People with a first aid certificate are trained to respond quickly and appropriately in life-threatening situations. Although a first aid certificate alone isn’t enough to secure a job, it can make you more attractive to certain types of potential employers. When you have a first aid certificate, you’ve proved that you know how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), use an automated external defibrillator (AED), and handle emergency situations like choking, heavy bleeding, a heart attack or stroke, or anaphylaxis. Most parents prefer babysitters and lifeguards with first aid certification. Many professionals, especially those who work with children, are required to have first aid training, including teachers, coaches, counselors and therapists, firefighters, and social workers. In addition to adult and pediatric first aid plus CPR and AED courses, you can take first aid training specifically designed for babysitting and child care, for health care settings, and for swimming and water safety situations..
