Our daughter wanted singng lessons for a birthday present and we had been referred to Judy. We did not know what to expect at the first recital and were blown away by the talent and range of her students. She brings out the confidence to be themselves when performing. Judy is also so professional and on time. Very importatant to a mom of three!
Max has been giving me guitar lessons for a couple months now. He is a really talented musician who is also a great teacher. He is patient and thorough with his teachings. He is flexible and affordable as well. It's been a great experience overall.
I've been taking piano lessons with Kris for about 3 months now and it's been great! He really knows how to tailor the lessons to my individual needs and he isn't afraid of challenging me. The lessons are dynamic because he mixes sheet music with theory, exercises, scales, and improvisation. His lessons are very reasonably priced and he's always reachable by phone and email. He is also flexible in scheduling if you need to make any changes on any given week.
Sofia is very knowledge and takes the time to make sure students understand the ideas and mechanics behind her training and how their instrument functions. I've taken professional voice lessons before abs she is as good or better than my previous teacher. I'm looking forward to many more lessons with her!
Kyle makes music "click". I'm really enjoying the lessons!
I have been taking lessons with top piano players all over the world and there is a reason that I train with Shannon from across the country. Great guy and great with kids!
Before studying with Deanna... I was less confident overall in my singing, my voice cracked in a lot of places and my range was a bit narrower. The most difficult part about that was singing in front of others and not being quite sure what notes were going to come out of my mouth. The thing about Deanna is that she is very welcoming, supportive and makes you feel comfortable. My biggest insight learned during our lessons was that it is possible to get my voice to be more predictable, the importance of proper breathing and that it really is helpful to record and listen to your own voice. And this was valuable because it's a confidence booster especially during performances. If I had to measure the results I'd say I gained confidence, comfort and knowledge about singing. I'd recommend Deanna to singers that want to stretch the current limits of their voice and feel more confident singing. Thanks so much for this great experience!
Loren is a very friendly and patient tutor. He uses really fun games that make the discomfort of learning a language a lot easier and more fun. I would highly recommend him for any tutoring you may want!
I took piano lessons many years ago; and have wanted to play again but I have forgotten most of what I had learned. My Great Niece wanted piano lessons too; this prompted me to look into lessons for both of us. After researching many instructors I found Judy. She is a perfect fit for us. She is able to teach a beginner as well as someone like me who needs to relearn. I have learned so much more now in a short period of time than I did all those years ago. I recommend Judy to anyone who is searching for an instructor. Her ability to meet her students needs and teach where they are at is wonderful. She helps you grow in your knowledge each week. Thank-you for helping us succeed! Nancy L.
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.
She has a wonderful way of teaching and guiding me through the nuances of learning to play the piano. I'm learning at a comfortable pace, enjoying both her and the lessons. I highly recommend her.
Eleni is kind, attentive, and very knowledgeable. I love that her lessons incorporate movement and understanding of anatomy to truly help improve the voice. I would reccomended her to anyone looking for a great vocal coach.
I really enjoy Jason More music lessons. I very much appreciate his ability to explain complex concepts in a very simple way allowing me to grow fast in my music learning and skill. Jason is the best teacher I had so far. Thanks.
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.
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 had three guitar lessons with Cameron and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and positive. As a beginner guitar student I would highly recommend him if you've toyed with the idea of learning but have been intimidated or put it off for any other reason. Cameron presents the information/exercises in just the right amounts for me thereby preventing frustration with the material and instead increasing my confidence and enjoyment.
Shlomo is a wonderful piano teacher! Our son has been taking lessons from him for 3 years now and we are more than satisfied. He has a great balance of being encouraging, while also challenging. He is very creative and comes up with great ideas to keep music lessons engaging. We strongly recommend him as a teacher.
Haven't started lessons yet, but he is super responsive and friendly.
Jeremy is a /great/ teacher. I took guitar from him for 8 months before a move pulled me away. He's friendly, patient, and has great knowledge not only of several instruments but the music theory behind them. He helped me with weak spots, and in no time took me from unexperienced to rhythm riffs of favorite songs and a solid grounding in music theory. He recommends apps to help with keeping beat & tuning, and uses online feeds of the lessons & mp3s of examples from class keep the flow. He brings together talent, friendliness, technology, and know how to be an exemplary teacher. Recommended!
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.
I’ve been seeing Haley for about 2 months now for vocal lessons. She is super professional and helps me so much with finding my voice. I have so much more confidence and skill after working with her. She is extremely talented and I feel so lucky to have her as a coach. She works really hard on helping me find my sound and making me feel comfortable and confident with my voice.
