Joe Rossi met with me, my daughter Eva, and Eva's mother, Dana at his studio. We were immediately struck by his humility, good character, and genuine devotion to providing the best possible teaching/communication to his students. He is very kind, very talented, philosophical, creative, and a rare find in these times. I will heartily recommend Joe to friends & family in the future. I appreciate Thumbtack's service, for your vehicle allowed me to meet the perfect teacher for me and Eva. In fact, Joe was so impressed with my daughter's singing/piano skills at our initial meeting, he apparently advised a woman who controls a particular scholarship fund to meet Eva during Eva's first lesson. Eva won the scholarship! By the way, I experienced difficulty on your web-page when I attempted to complete project 2 (Eva's lessons). Dana Hayden, Eva's mom, ended up contacting you instead. I am taking flamenco/classical guitar lessons from Joe.

I'm happy I decided to start taking guitar lessons. The teacher is friendly, very knowledgeable, and patient. I feel like I've learned a lot and I look forward to learning more. Lessons are reasonably priced and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

I have been taking adult acoustic guitar lessons, at Sunburst School of music, for about 5 years. You can feel the vibes of this music school, as soon as you walk through the door! Lots of energy, fun, learning and, of course, all kinds of music! My instructors have been so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient. With their help and lots of practice, I have become a guitar player! I would highly recommend Sunburst School of Music, to anyone of any age, who is thinking of beginning their own adventure into learning a musical instrument!

My daughter has been taking drum lessons from Pat for a little over a year. Pat shows a sincere interest in her development as a musician. He keeps her engaged and excited about learning, which transitions into her willingly practicing at home. I worried her enthusiasm would fade, but Pat's love for music and teaching is contagious. She looks forward to every lesson.

Devin was recommended to me by a friend when I was looking to start taking drum lessons. I was an absolute novice, having never even touched a drum stick before, so he had his work cut out for him to say the least. Devin was incredibly accommodating and patient, and was able to provide the perfect amount of direction without going over my head. I never felt out of my depth, although I surely was, which is a credit to his teaching style and capabilities. I would highly recommend him.

I had two lessons with Erli. I have just purchased a Yamaha DGX-660, and he showed me how to use the various functions of the machine. Both the piano and he are wonderful.

My son has been taking both guitar and drum lessons for six years every week at N Stuff. I can't tell you how professional, kind and talented the entire staff is. Every week we get to walk into a place that feels more like CHEERS, where everyone knows your name. It gives my son a ton of confidence and he has never wanted to quit because of the positive attitude he gets from everyone. From helpful knowledge when buying a piece of equipment to help when something needs to be fixed, hands down, this has been such a wonderful experience all around.

The Melody Shop is a wonderful place. I can't say enough about how well the teachers and staff continually engage their students and the all around atmosphere that promotes the love of music. I have personally seen all levels of abilities perform at their peak with the guidance of Neil Carr. My daughter not only learned how the read music, but she performed at a recital, which she would have never done before she began her lessons with Neil Carr.

I honestly couldn't be happier. The individual instruction is so amazing. There are group sessions once a month that are beneficial for performers. My son is so motivated now! The teacher lets me sit in on the lessons and I'm so impressed!

Working with John has been great! He is very accomodating to my schedule and is extremely knowledgable. I started out learning hand placement, chords and reading music, and now we are starting to put that together and play songs. He bases his lessons off of what you would like to learn and what kind of music you are interested in. I'm so happy I chose John, don't miss out on the opportunity to work with him!


I'm excited to spread my knowledge of percussive instruments to all beginners willing to put in hard work and dedication to one of the most rewarding talents.

My name is Devin, and I am the drummer for the band "Save Us From the Archon" based out of the Pittsburgh area; we have completed six national and three international tours, released two full-lengths/one EP and shared the stage with many internationally touring acts. I have been playing drums and percussion for a little over twelve years now. I just graduated from Westminster College with a BM degree in percussion performance/music theory, and I have been teaching music privately for the last six years. The most common drum lessons include the following: - Understanding the Rhythmic Scale - Rudimental Exercises in Linear Drumming - Odd Meter Drumming - Double Bass Drumming - Metal Drumming - Jazz Drumming - Latin Drumming - Limb Independence The most commonly asked for theory lessons includes the following: - Basic Music Theory - Secondary Function Chords - Exotic Scales and Their Uses - Atonal Theory (Spans Free Tonality, Dodecaphonic Theory and Set Theory) - Composition (Basic) - Composition (Advanced) For references of my playing and composing abilities, you can find my music and videos by searching for "Save Us From The Archon" on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, YouTube, etc.


We at Bentley & Romito Music believe that music should be fun and educational. Students learn how to read music and are taught music theory. They can also learn their favorite songs as well as how to "jam." Students are taught how to improvise and are encouraged to be creative. Each student also has a chance to play at a number of recitals over the course of the year.


Drum set lessons are taught for all levels—from beginner to intermediate. I teach drum kit sessions in all styles, and I provide practical lessons for fast results you can use in everyday situations. Drum lessons are based around your needs—if intermediate or great beginner routine—to help you get started. I have been teaching for 8 years.


I teach drum and percussion lessons to students of all ages and ability levels out of my Monroeville, PA studio. I am conveniently located on Northern Pike Road at a professional storefront music studio, shared with other local teachers. I offer some of the most affordable and consistent lessons in town. I have an extensive background as a teacher, performer and composer, including 2 master's degrees in music (one in percussion) and an undergraduate degree in music education. I have been teaching privately now for over 7 years. I have many flexible time slots available, and I pride myself in offering to teach any percussion instrument, style, experience level, or age of students. I've taught adults. I've taught preschoolers. I've taught college music majors, grade-school students, and everyone in between! No experience with music of any kind? Not a problem! Visit my website today to find out more about me and what I do. Fill out the contact form; tell me about your goals or desires in music, and let's get started!


I've taken years of music lessons and I'm willing to pass that knowledge on. I can teach a variety of percussion and stringed instruments.

I am a results oriented instructor, employing patience and repetition to gain success over time. What ever the reason for the instruction may be, personal satisfaction or to join a band or organization, the students own energy will be the catalysis. I can provide instruments for the lessons for the first two months if needed. Whether Jazz, Pop, Rock or Reggae, I promise our time spent together will be FUN and INFORMATIVE. I am willing to negotiate the hourly rate, ( if need be ). So let's get started having some musical fun. * Bass guitar * Hand percussion lessons * Music instruction for ages six and up * Concentrating on jazz, pop, hiphop, and classic rock styles
