We bought voice lessons for our son-in-law who has never sung before. He loves his lessons! We heard Jesse in concert. He sang an hour-long series of broadway hits (one of his many genres). He has a wonderful voice and range and is a great pianist. Really relates well to audiences and students

Jesse is not only exceedingly knowledgeable but he obviously cares a great deal about the student's progression. His energy and enthusiasm are inspiring and he is talented beyond his years. I feel quite fortunate to be able to take voice lessons from a teacher of this caliber.

Emily is by far the best voice teacher I've had the pleasure of working with. In the past, I've had voice lessons from other teachers who were referred to me because of their years of experience, but this just translated into working with someone who was set in their ways and styles of teaching. Emily helps you explore your vocal abilities while providing techniques and critiques on improving. She is able to meet the client where they are at whether it is children, college students, or adults and helps them build their self-confidence. Emily is an extremely passionate person and accomplished musician.

Emily is an amazing educator. She's smart and passionate, and i've watched her work with old and young students to great effect. She teaches to you, not at you, and is great at identifying and nurturing your natural talents in a healthy way for musical longevity. I've never been more enthusiastic about lessons, voice or otherwise, until I met Emily. :)

I got voice lessons from Emily for a couple months, very reasonable pricing, very friendly and she was good with working around my schedule. The lessons were on point and I was picking up new techniques and exercises with every lesson. Would highly recommend taking lessons from her, the only reason I'm not anymore is because she moved!

My daughter is 12 years old and absolutely loves working with Judy Malings for her voice lessons. It's been over 1 year now and I've seen incredible singing improvement and on-stage confidence in her. Judy is talented, organized, and truly cares about maximizing the voice sessions for her students benefit. Judy's singing showcase events are very professional and fun. They're a wonderful display for parents to see the amazing progress in their kids singing talent. Judy Malings is a great mentor for music and voice!

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!

Amazing teacher and amazing woman. Singing lessons with Sofia were an amazing journey - to vocal and personal freedom. The teaching method Sofia uses was a revolution, changing almost all I was taught about singin so far - and it brought wonderful, unexpected results! If you are lucky enough to have a chance to learn from her - wow!

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!

I found Eleni here on Thumbtack. I have only had a handful of lessons with Eleni so far, but it's going great! She is a kind, caring and knowledgeable teacher. I say this because I feel she really CARES about her students and in invested in their success in learning. She has a deep understanding of the voice and mechanics behind it. She is very easy going and relaxed, which makes her easy to learn from. I can really tell she enjoys music and teaching with all of her soul.

I have had 2 singing lessons so far from Eleni. I feel that I am improving already! She is very skilled and observant and can see quickly where I am holding tension and help guide me how to relax both physically and mentally in ways that instantly effect my voice in positive ways. I am very excited to continue working with her and I highly recommend her as a teacher. She is experienced, highly knowledgeable, friendly and comfortable to be around and effective!!

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!

Kyle is a terrific teacher. He’s patient and enthusiastic. I’ve been learning the electric bass with him for about 6 months and my musicianship has improved significantly!! He helps me with the mechanics of my playing as well as songwriting and theory which helps me understand what I am doing even more. I look forward to my lessons with him each week. They always stretch my brain and challenge me to improve.

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!

Bonnie is, quite simply, a superb piano teacher, and we whole-heartedly recommend her to anyone who is serious about his or her child learning to play the piano. She translates complex music theory into easy building blocks for a small child to understand. Bonnie then relates these concepts to activities and ideas easy to grasp. She balances mechanics with theory and sight-reading with improvisation. And Bonnie has an amazing amount of patience, kindness, good humor, and phenomenal skill! She can draw my daughter’s little wandering mind back to the subject easily and makes learning the piano fun and interesting.

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.

We've been searching for a piano teacher for a few months. We knew we wanted our son to experience lessons and develop an early skill set for music but we also knew we needed a teacher who understands the needs of young kids and loves teaching them. But it’s so hard to find a teacher who is passionate about 4 year olds AND has a schedule that accommodates working moms. Most of the teachers I found could only do mid-day appointments.  Deanna is engaging, kind, understanding, and informative. She connected with Tommy immediately and had a teaching style that is clear and direct. She also was able to vary activities in a way that allowed Tommy to focus and feel successful.

My 4-year-old son has been taking lessons with Deanna for the past 6 months. I am a preschool teacher. I was immediately impressed by how Deanna was able to connect with my child and work with him with such calmness and ease. My son tried many different classes and has had many different instructors. Deanna has by far been his favorite instructor and he is always excited and ready for class. The program she uses is wonderful, it introduces children to sequencing and patterns, fine motor skills and development and so much more. I highly highly recommend classes with Deanna. We love her!

I am very pleased with my decision to hire Geoff Arnold. He is very patient with me and wants me to have fun with the guitar. I receive well thought out lessons and enjoy them. The material I receive makes sense to me and I know exactly what I need to work on for the following week.. I interviewed many instructors and Geoff was hands down the best one for my style of learning.

The lessons were really for my husband and he thought Geoff was great. He appreciated that he treated him as an adult (because he's never taken lessons before) and was very patient with my husbands lack of skills. We would definitely refer others to him as well as use him again in the future.

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

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 4 year old son and I get lessons from Nyssa. I do voice. I have learned a lot from Nyssa. She is very knowledgeable, patient and so encouraging! My son is doing Wunderkeys(preschool piano)with Nyssa. He has limited motor skills and this has really helped him make great progress. I see growth in that he is doing things with his hands that he had trouble with in the past. She works really well with him as well. My husband calls it my son's "occupational therapy." I would recommend her 100%

My lessons with Nyssa are absolutely therapeutical! She is encouraging and very knowledgeable about what she teaches-two qualities which can be difficult to find in a teacher. She is very good at listening to what your goals are and helping you reach them, while instilling a well-rounded vocal foundation. I cannot say enough awesome things about her! I love Nyssa!

Ten or eleven years ago I searched for a piano teacher for my then 8 year old grandson. Dan Kenison's name kept coming up. My grandson became his student, and a few years later, also my granddaughter. Dan has a soft, easy way with his students. My grandkids loved him, always looking forward to their lessons and yearly recitals. Now that they have moved on in their lives my old piano has been standing grand, but silent. A year ago I made the decision to learn to play her...at 67 years old! Of course, I phoned Dan...aka Mr K...and have been his student, now going into my second year with him. I'm amazed that I can actually play recognizable tunes! I am self-employed and must practice around my own somewhat busy schedule. There have been weeks when practice was slim. But Mr K is willing to go the distance with me whatever time that may take. I am so grateful to have this opportunity at this later time in my life to yet learn and begin to understand the language of music. I highly recommend Dan Kenison to future students...no matter their age or ability. Suzanne Jauchius 503 655 2631 West Linn, Oregon

My 6 year old has been working with Mr K for the last couple of months and things are going great. I was worried about transitioning from one teach to another thinking that my son may not like the lesson format but that hasn't been the case at all. Mr K has a lot of experience working with younger kids and I can see that in his interactions. My son is high energy but Mr K can redirect him when needed. Also, scheduling and setting up payment was a breeze so as a working parent, I appreciate that!

I took voice lessons with Joannah when she was in Boston and there were a few things that I particularly loved about her teaching manner. First, she's knows a lot about the anatomical aspects of the voice and air support systems, and she brings that into the lesson to explain how singing works and how to sing healthfully. I really appreciated this expertise and transparency about how the body makes sound. Second, Joannah has a very open and non-judgmental approach to her teaching. I always felt comfortable with her trying my best, even if it took a little while to get the sound we were looking for. And finally, Joannah herself is a very talented musician - she has a beautiful voice to listen to and is an inspiration to be around.

I started taking lessons with Joannah after a 10-year hiatus from playing the piano. Joannah made me feel right back at home behind the keys! She took the time to understand my goals and my musical preferences and combined the two to put together an exciting yet reasonable lesson plan for me each week. She was also flexible with my busy work schedule, and had no problem changing or canceling a lesson if something came up. I highly recommend Joannah as a musical instructor for folks of all ages--she is wonderful!

I highly recommend Tim as a cello teacher! I've taken cello lessons from Tim for almost 3 years. I started at age 44 with more than a little apprehension having had less than ideal experiences as a kid with a few piano teachers. I wanted to learn to play a lot of tv/movie soundtrack music as well as the more standard classical tunes. Tim's sense of humor and easy-going demeanor combined with his vast knowledge of musical theory plus his skill as a cellist are the perfect combination to inspire and draw me forward in my learning. He knows how to apply enough challenge plus enough encouragement to help even the older student excel to the best of their ability.

I highly recommend Tim Smith as a teacher in many areas of music. I am so elated to be taking cello lessons with this fine teacher! Tim is multi-talented and able to challenge me through every level of musical growth. I appreciate his individual teaching style which allows each student to progress at their own personal rate. He is flexible and accommodating with lesson times and his rates are right in line with the local teaching market.
