Louis Pettinelli Music was outstanding! The two musicians (piano and base) arrived on time, dressed well and most importantly played beautifully for 5 hours. I highly recommend them for any event. The live music was wonderful and my guest enjoyed both listening and dancing to their music.

I've had 3 lessons with Chloe so far and I'm very impressed and happy that I chose her to be my teacher. Chloe is a great teacher who not only encourages the student but also listens and answers questions. I've had bad experiences in the past with other teachers and it's exciting and refreshing working with Chloe. She has a lot of different ways to help you visualize what you want to achieve and has a great ear to realize exactly when you're cheating and doing things improperly. I'm very excited to be working with her and look forward to my improvement in the upcoming months. Highly recommended.

My 14 year old daughter has studied voice with Chloe for the last two years and she loves working with Chloe. Chloe is a patient and exacting teacher who focuses on proper vocal technique in a relaxed friendly manner. Chloe allows my daughter to bring in whatever music she is currently singing and guides her to understand the music and her voice better. Recently, my daughter took first place in a singing contest and will be singing two solos in Carnegie Hall in December - Chloe is a huge part my daughter's success!

I've played the guitar for 40 years, but have only truly played now for the past 6 years; since the time that John McElderry has been my teacher. He has taken me through the Berkley College of Music in Boston curriculum. He'll lead you so far, then makes you work out the rest of the puzzle of your lesson, ensuring lasting retention of the material. Always fun, always learning something new. I've never been able to come up with a question that John couldn't answer and immediately demonstrate. I will take lessons with John until I can't play anymore. Very enjoyable learning experience. I'm now a competent guitar player, doing things naturally that I had only dreamed about earlier.

John has been a perfect teacher for me because of his profound understanding of music theory and composition. John has a degree in music from Berklee and those concepts are brought to life in our lessons. My musical understanding and ability has skyrocketed since our lessons began. Prior to us starting, jamming with other musicians was incredibly intimidating. Now I have standing weekly jam sessions with multiple groups and am able to old my own and improvise well at each. I have become the teacher for many of my friends who I previously thought were years ahead of me in musical talent. If you have the hunger to learn guitar, John is your guy.

John is extremely knowledgable about music theory. From my first lesson I walked away better off. And I think I will continue to grow in my guitar skills and music knowledge.

I tripped across Thumbtack while looking for a professional to teach my young son (7 yrs.) to play the drums. He is not interested in sports, or anything other than electronics for that matter. I received several responses, all quickly. After a few conversations, Brian (BJB) seemed to be a good fit. He explained that he does in-home lessons or lessons at his studio. We opted for in-home lessons for now. That may change. Brian is nothing short of a saint when it comes to tolerance, patience and guidance. It is so very obvious that he wants to pass along his love of music. He keeps the lessons moving and on track. He is gentle, yet firm with his instruction. Always punctual. He is also flexible when my schedule changes. My son finally enjoys something other than his tablet! He is learning to read music, which is awesome. Brian also helped guide me in making certain purchases - pointing out some great buys as opposed to overpriced items or expensive items that my son clearly isn't ready for. I highly recommend BJB Music. Gina R

We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.

I'm so glad we found this school. David comes to our house once a week and teaches my boys (9 & 13) and they are learning so much, so fast! They are playing by ear and reading music. David is so professional and works with each of them at their levels. There are always "duet" moments where he plays along with the kids. I honestly couldn't be happier.

A Julliard Grad, Sam Ruttenberg is an extremely versatile teacher in both the jazz and classical fields. A student who wishes to be well rounded will be a perfect match for Sam. Although I have only studied primarily drumset with him, he has incorporated classical concepts into my playing and vice versa which has made me become an overall stronger player. Not only is he a jack of all trades, but he is also an entrepreneur. His bestselling drum product, the Hingestix, are sold all over the world. For anyone who is just picking up drumsticks should check his product out. Whether you are just trying to get better at the drums or considering having a musical career, Sam teaches students of all ages and gives back to the drumming community as much as he can.

Verified review

Sam Ruttenberg is not your typical music teacher. From my perspective as a parent, I love that every minute of the lesson is utilized productively through a variety of percussion activities. However, what impresses me the most is when my son Daniel asks Mr. Ruttenberg a question, and he doesn’t answer him, but instead, guides him to figure it out on his own. As a result, this builds Daniel’s confidence. Now that is a true teacher!! Be ready to be enthralled !!

Sam is an excellent drum instructor! I have been playing drums most of life and have taken lessons from many teachers. But none have been as instrumental as Sam in propelling my drumming skills to new heights. Whether in-person or via Skype, Sam's lessons are effective, professional, and responsive.

I`ve been taking guitar lessons from Steve for seven weeks now and I find him to be a GREAT teacher and very knowledgeable on everything when it comes to anything related to music. If you want to know anything about a particular instrument or Amp or anything related to music Steve can guide you. I`m an older student and mentally handicapped sometimes ;) and he`s very patient with me. I give him 5 stars and would recommend to him to anyone.

Dan is a great lesson teacher - his lessons are very helpful and you come away learning a lot each time. If you're ever confused about something, he'll explain it in fifty different ways until you understand. Lessons are also fun because it's not all playing, and a lot of discussion is involved when talking about theory. Dan is personable and helpful when it comes to new concepts and improving your technique, sound, or improvising. I truly felt like every time I walked away from a lesson, I was a better player and I was able to apply what he taught me in other ensembles. Dan's really great. Highly, highly recommend.

I have been taking flute lessons with Dan for the past four months. My technique and improvisational skills have increased dramatically since I started with Dan, and I have seen myself grow as a musician much quicker than when I was getting lessons elsewhere. I also always feels very comfortable asking him any questions that I have (no matter how silly) and I find that he is very good at communicating complex ideas. He's also incredibly kind and patient! I would definitely recommend him to anyone for flute (and saxophone/clarinet) lessons - he's a step above other teachers in the Philly area.

I left my drum lesson with Patrick all fired up! Patrick covered the basics for me, as someone brand new to playing drums, in a way that covered a ton of territory while getting me playing and improving by the end of the hour. I appreciated Patrick's embodied approach to drums, encompassing ergonomics and the physicality as well as the mental part of playing. He incorporated examples from music I knew and his enthusiasm and broad knowledge for drumming came through. I can't comment on his punctuality, as I was running behind schedule, but he was accommodating and responsive. His rate was not the cheapest I was quoted, but his expertise, clarity, and personableness were well worth his rate. Highly recommended!

Patrick is an awesome instructor! I had no formal experience whatsoever about drumming and barely knew anything about a kit before I started lessons with him. After only a couple months of lessons I have a much better understanding of the kit and been able to start learning a couple songs (yay!). He's patient, enthusiastic, and always challenges me to move further out of my comfort zone. He's also good at picking up on my learning tendencies and uses that to help me better understand my strengths and figure out how to improve on my weaknesses.

I have just started working with Patrick but definitely plan to continue. His lessons do not come from a book but are tailor made to fit my skills and what I want to learn. He was immediately able to assess what my strengths and weaknesses as a drummer are and knows how to work with my strengths and improve my weaknesses. Plus he is familiar with the type of music I would like to learn!

I have known Susan for 20 years, and started taking lessons with her at age 3. Susan's training was instrumental in helping me achieve my dreams. I credit Susan with helping me book my first broadway musical, and having performed at the highest level, I can say with complete confidence that Susan is truly a world class voice teacher. Susan's prodigious skill in the art of voice training enables her to bring out excellence in all of her students, and take them to a higher caliber of singing then they ever thought possible. Perhaps most importantly, Susan is a pleasure to work with, and her enthusiasm for her craft is contagious. I'm honored to call Susan my friend and mentor.

After doing a lot of hard singing during college, I basically had to start vocal training from scratch with Susan. It's safe to say, without her training, I would likely not be singing today. As of now, I have performed and taught in New York and Washington, D.C. among other cities in the states, Ecuador and Argentina while I continue to take lessons with Susan by Skype on a regular basis. She has a very organic, in-depth style that is tailor-made to each student. Also, most teachers just don't have the extent of her knowledge. If you're within 500 miles of her, do yourself a favor and go take lessons!

Susan is honestly a dream come true. She is supportive and positive in our lessons, and has taught me so much (with a lot of patience and kindness as well!) She is also incredibly responsive to her students, and has been able to make time for me whenever I ask. Additionally, so much of what she does is based in the science of how the body works; it really puts the price into perspective. She's worth it, and your body (and spirit) will thank you if you're anything like me!

Deb is a very energetic teacher and is great to work with! I have been taking piano lessons (beginner level) with her for almost two months and it has been a really wonderful experience. Every lesson, we review what we discussed the previous week and move on to new material. Deb has been very good about giving me exercises and pieces to work on in between sessions. This has been very helpful and has helped me improve in the short time I've been taking lessons with her. I would highly recommend Deb as a piano teacher. She is also a very talented violinist!!!

Shelly is the quintessential teacher: knowledgeable, professional, and inspirational. She's been my daughter's music instructor (piano, vocal) for over two years and she has learned so much from Shelly.

As a beginner-level guitar player and singer, I couldn't speak more highly of Taylor as a teacher. I've been doing lessons with him for almost 2 years now and have improved from complete beginner to recording songs! With his help, I've not only learned how to play songs on a guitar, but he has also taught me how to sing with the correct breathing and increased my range. One of the biggest benefits is that he has a home recording studio - not only is it cool to have my own recording, but it helps me learn to be able to listen to myself. Taylor's teaching style is very engaging and enthusiastic, plus he's patient with my musical inexperience. He teaches me songs I want to learn as well as unique guitar and singing skills. I would highly recommend Taylor to any aspiring musician who wants to have fun lessons while also improving drastically.

I would definitely recommend Taylor as a guitar and vocal instructor. I started taking lessons with him last year. At the time I had been learning songs on my own and feeling pretty lost and stuck in terms of my progress. After the first couple lessons I could already see significant improvements in my singing and guitar playing. We are currently recording an EP of songs I have been learning to play and sing. Using the recording equipment and recording my own music has been a blast. Overall working with Taylor has been has been an awesome experience and I'd recommend him to everyone!

I have been a student of piano teacher, James Gugliemo, for almost 2 years. I am a retired professional clarinetist, who at an advanced age, has now persued the serious study of piano. Jims' scope of teaching encompasses Classical to Jazz to current musical trends. His knowledge and communication skills are of the highest order. I actually have known him and his pianistic abilities for many years. Studying with him is always an experience which motivates and encourages me each and every week. I would highly recommend him as a teacher for students at any level from beginners to the very advanced.

My teenage son has been enjoying Danton's classical guitar teaching for the past two years. In this time, he has greatly matured in his playing skills and understanding of music theory. Danton challenges his students in creative and fun ways, making lessons a pleasure. He includes the student in selecting music, being sure to advance the student's skill level without overwhelm the student. He is professional, engaging, and friendly. Additionally, his ability to come to my home for lessons saves me time each week. Certainly, he is a very talented musician whom I eagerly recommend for all styles of piano or guitar instruction.

He is a personable and professional young man with a charming, upbeat personality and has great flexibility in working with you in his studio or in your home.
