Jesse is a great instructor with a prestigious background and education in singing and music in general. He knows what he's talking about. He's easy to get along and communicate with, and knows when to push you and how hard to push reach your goals. I had no music background at all and after A few lessons and his teachings, I already know I can go far in the music world. This guy is the real deal
My 7-year-old daughter took weekly singing lessons with Emily for a little over 3 months. Emily was sweet and very encouraging. My daughter really liked her and was always looking forward to her singing lessons. The lessons had to stop because Emily was relocating to another city. Before she left, Emily went out of her way, took time from her busy moving schedule and gave my daughter a free farewell lesson. We wish her all the best in her new chapter in life.
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!
I was thrown into the dueling piano circuit after learning three songs from the entertainment director who then disappeared. Shannon took it upon himself to not only teach me essential songs that would entertain a crowd but show me the core of theory and how to apply it on the gig. Almost five years later, I can honestly say that if it wasn't for his instruction and instilling not just the theory of music, but the mindset of a live performer, I would not have made it in the industry or be half the musician I am today.
My wife and I have been taking music lessons with Kyle for over a year. He is a very versatile musician being proficient on the piano, guitar and vocals. Because of this he is able explain many different aspects of music. He is also extremely patient. Kyle is the best.
Evan is an excellent guitar teacher! Lessons are always fun with a perfect balance between music theory and practice. He is extremely informative and helpful when it comes to tricks and techniques to work on to improve my skills. He is really flexible and can come to my house for lessons when I can't make it out to his. I'm exited to continue working with Evan and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play the guitar!
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!!
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 daughters little wandering mind back to the subject easily and makes learning the piano fun and interesting.
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%
Drew is an amazing teacher! I have only had 2 lessons and I am already learning so much from him. He is patient, kind and makes learning music really fun.
Attila was great with my 8 year old. He is very patient, was able to teach some basic guitar concepts, and gave reasonable homework for the time between lessons. We've only had one lesson so far, but my son is excited to learn more!
Cameron is a brilliant musician and gifted instructor. I sought him out for voice lessons, and I quickly learned that he could help me become a better guitarist and gain a much richer understanding of all aspects of music theory. Within three months we had begun exploring song-writing and composition. I never even intended to write songs at this point of my life, but Cameron integrates this process logically and seamlessly into what we cover. I have taken many years of music lessons from a dozen different instructors; more than ever I now find myself looking forward to each lesson as a highlight of my week. Cameron's kind nature and patient, supportive style make the hour pass like time spent with a good friend. And my appreciation for and understanding of the subtlety and layering of music has never been deeper. I really cannot recommend Cameron highly enough. He is an exceptional teacher.
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. :)
I studied with Manny for about 4 years starting when I was 15. I'd already played guitar for about 3 years at that point and there were some significant gaps in my playing. Manny helped me become a more well-rounded player by teaching me about music theory, introducing me to the world of jazz, giving me tools to develop my chops and ear and being a positive voice of reason. With Manny's help I prepared an audition piece and was accepted into Berklee College of Music in 2011. Without Manny I wouldn't be the player I am today :)
I took cello lessons with Elisa for a few years and played in a group of student, stringed musicians led by her for a few more. She is very good at what she does. She is also very kind. Her lessons are affordable (especially important for a broke college student like me), and her schedule flexible for the most part.
Today was my first day working with Darin, and I must say I was more than impressed by his knowledge in music, skills in pedagogy, and his overall passion and enthusiasm for music and teaching! I could truly sense his excitement for me to learn and how much he cared to provide me with all the resources needed for me to succeed. He is not only an excellent pianist, but truly has incredible talent and knowledge in teaching. He truly spends his time generously in teaching and makes the learning experience so exciting. Darin spend extra time outside of the lesson planning out the lesson and then typing up all the things we covered in the lesson so I would have a summary and point of reference. I highly recommend him and am looking forward to working with him as my teacher!
We had piano and guitar lessons a good part of last year and will continue this year for our home schooling students It's fantastic instruction - and we can participate in recitals thru skype as well! It's great for us, we live in WY and MT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
My son is 14 years old and has no musical background. Taking lessons from Bethany has been a wonderful experience for him. She has a very relaxed and open approach to teaching. I don't need to remind him to practice because he is self motivated and doesn't want to disappoint his teacher. He is receiving a solid foundation and I believe she will be able to help him progress throughout the years. She is also very responsive and is easy to reach by email. I would highly recommend her services!!
Daniel is knowledgeable, patient, and personable. He catered each lesson to my individual progress and learning speed. His prices are very reasonable and he even provides a discount if you pay for a whole month of lessons at once. Unfortunately, I had to stop attending lessons due to a schedule change at work, but if I had not, I would still be going. I would absolutely recommend Daniel to anyone who is interested in learning more about music!
