I've been taking lessons with Monte for over a year, and I would highly recommend him to anyone; a beginner or someone already skilled who is just looking to jam. Monte is a patient instructor and will work with you to learn just about any song or style of music you want. He can hear something one time and play it perfectly. It's a pretty amazing skill when you see it in action. Give him a try and I promise you'll be hooked!

My children participate in multiple lessons and rock bands at Sun Burst. We have been consistently impressed by the quality of the teachers. They truly care about the kids and want to see them grow. It has changed the dynamics in our house in such a positive way I cannot speak highly enough about this program

I have taken guitar lessons from Scott Elliott off and on for 38 years. Scott is an excellent teacher. I came away from each lesson with information and techniques that would keep me busy for years. I highly recommend Scott as a teacher of Guitar, I recently took classical lessons from Scott and it was very intense. Scott pays close attention to details, from striking the string properly to holding the instrument and everything that comes after that. He was always very accomidating with the schedule and was able to help me immensly. The atmosphere of his teaching studio was very comfortable and pleasant. I highly recommend studying with Scott if you are serious about learning the proper way to play a guitar. I have taken lessons from several other teachers, but after studying with Scott, I felt that other teachers were wasting my time, or that I was showing them different techniques. I really can't say enough good things about Scott and his guitar and teaching abilities.

I've always wanted to play piano but never had the time. That excuse went away when I saw Dan's video. I feel like I've gotten a great head start and the lessons I've had so far have built on what the video showed. That's why I hired the guy. He makes everything easy and I'd recommend him to anyone who asks.

I began taking lessons with Gail in my late 40's. She helped me with pitch, delivery and phrasing. She even helped me develop my songbook and introduced me to musicians. I am now performing on a regular basis and have cut three CDs! I highly recommend Gail.

Jane is an outstanding piano teacher. She was very patient and encouraging in every lesson. I studied piano with her in high school and learned a lot. My only regret is not starting with her earlier! The knowledge and skills I gained from her instruction helped me in my four years of music school at West Virginia University. I am currently an elementary music teacher and was blessed to have a strong music foundation which was formed in lessons with Jane. I have also had the pleasure of singing while she accompanied me on several occasions. She is very talented and I would highly reccomend her.

About

Do you want to play guitar? I mean, do you really want to develop the fine art of playing guitar? Do you want to be able to learn how to build nice chord progressions, how to play a solo melody, and do solo improvisation, in different styles of music and on all different types of guitars? Have you always wanted to learn that song from a CD, but can't get the right notes and chords? Do you need to train your ear? Do you need a good method to be able to learn to play blues, classical, folk or rock as quickly as possible? Call me. I have more than 25 years of experience teaching music.

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..
