I moved to TN at the beginning of the year and was on an on-going search for a voice teacher. After many failed attempts I contacted a faculty member at UT, and she highly recommend Alex Engle. In our first lesson, Alex took the time to get to know me as well what I was expecting from lessons. She's is classically trained, and as s musical theatre/contemporary performer, he has given me great tools that can be crossed over from the classical realm. She always comes prepared with new techniques and warm ups, and isn't afraid to tackle a difficult piece of music with me. Alex is a great teacher for any singer looking to further their vocal technique!

As an adult, learning an instrument can seem overwhelming. But at Knoxville Academy of Music it isn’t. I found the instructors personable, caring, and positive. They don’t just want you to learn at KAM, they want you to love learning, and they truly provide the environment that makes that happen. Lessons are private and affordable and competitive. Best of all, though, Knoxville Academy of Music treats you like a family friend, rather than an appointment in their book.

Mr. Bos was a great piano teacher. I remember waiting in turn for my three siblings to take their lessons and when it was my turn, he was just as patient and helpful with me as he was with them. We went through different piano books, such as Piano Performance and Piano Theory, so as to be well rounded and be able to perform pieces as well as be able to scale octaves and have good technique. I am sure that he would be a great teacher to anyone of any age, and would highly recommend him. -Olivia

My child is taking vocal lessons with Will in preparation for college admissions auditions. He is working on preparing songs for live performance and making sure we have a live venue to practice in. So far, my child has made swift progress and worked through the issues with three songs. We are very pleased.

We had a Spanish teacher come out to our house to work with my three children. She was very professional and punctual. The kids enjoyed the lesson and are looking forward to another! This is a great service offered. They are very responsive and very professional. I highly recommend for children or adults. We will definitely be using them for years to come!

What a gift to have Kayla teaching our child piano! She's incredibly talented both musically and as a teacher. She brings joy and excitement to each lesson and moves our child along at just the right pace. Kayla has brilliantly empowered and motivated our child to practice, play, and even do a little composing of his own! Thanks to Kayla, our child's piano playing and understanding and joy of music have excelled far beyond our expectations.

    Michael's guitar lessons were outstanding for my 12 year old daughter. He is very professional, friendly, a good role model, and he really knows how to pull out the best in people. 2 years worth of lessons and my girl is now able to strum along with some of her favorite tunes and is really enjoying it. He stresses hard work, dedication, and building good practice habits. Would highly recommend to anyone. He might just be the best guitar player around too, I've seen him play.

    For the last year, Kelvin has been coming to our house each week to teach my 6-year-old daughter, Nora, and me (41 yrs old) how to play our new piano. We were both new to reading music and playing an instrument when we started. Kelvin is well known in the musical community in Santa Fe and the person who sold us our piano assured us that we had made an excellent choice of teacher (we had found Kelvin independently). Kelvin has a patient style and a good sense of humor. His approach was obviously different for me and for Nora, and he explained that adults tend to enjoy learning to play songs as soon as possible and also like variations on a given song, to keep things interesting, while kids tend to progress best by learning scales and patterns. Within the first 2 weeks, I was playing a dozen familiar tunes with confidence and after a few months the “language” of the music was starting to make sense to me. The weekly lessons have been productive and we increased our time from 30 minutes each to 45 minutes each for the last two months, as both Nora and I were enjoying our increased skills and wanted more lessons. Kelvin has a speech impediment which causes him to stutter. Do not let this be any kind of hindrance to considering him as a teacher. Indeed, this has allowed our daughter the opportunity to learn on 2 levels at once from Kelvin as she absorbed the music lessons while learning to be patient and appreciating that not all people talk the same way. Kelvin has been most patient and supportive of Nora and her sometimes shifting interest. For several lessons in a row, rather than just staying on book, Kelvin helped Nora to discover how to find the notes for a song that she had in her head that she had heard on the radio. Then he would teach her a variation or a fun ending, and she would get all excited and show to her friends during the week that she could play radio songs. I’ll admit that I have not made much time for practice during the week and often find myself “cramming” during the 5-10 minutes before Kelvin arrives. Despite not committing myself more fully to learning on my own, I have progressed steadily in my ability to handle more complicated music and am nearing the end of my first music lesson book (which Kelvin brought at the first lesson for us both). I wholeheartedly recommend Kelvin as a Piano teacher.

    About

    I teach beginners and intermediate students how to play the guitar, mandolin, dobro (resonator guitar), ukulele, pedal or lap steel guitar, and more (basically any string instrument that is not bowed). I have extensive experience in playing professionally on a national scale. I have played with The Everybodyfields, Robinella, and The Black Lillies (whom I currently tour with). My students learn to play "by ear" and learn music theory as it pertains to the particular instrument's neck. My personal influences are a mixture of classic rock, country music, and folk — many people call this "Americana".

    About

    Hello, my name is Austin Altena, and I have over ten years of experience playing guitar. In addition, I can also play/teach the harmonica, banjo, bass, mandolin, and acoustic or electric guitar. It's only recently that I have decided to start giving "formal" lessons, but I have been helping people learn or improve their guitar skills for 4 years. I can read and teach sheet music if it is so desired, however, it is not necessary for guitar playing. I have completed several college level music theory courses. I have a versatile playing style and could teach your prospective student anything they would like to know. As of now, I do weekly lessons for 30 minutes to an hour, depending on whats being covered in the lesson. I charge thirty dollars a lesson. If you or someone in your life has the desire to learn or just improve their guitar skills, I am confident that I can give you an enjoyable and informative lesson experience. I give the lessons out of my home, and I have a studio room with everything we would need, but I am willing to travel to you if necessary.

    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..
