I really enjoy taking Spanish classes with Rebecca. She makes the lessons fun and relevant. I appreciate that she understands proper Spanish and is able to explain things in a patient and simple way.
It was through a Google search that I found this site, thumbtack, and used its service to find a guitar instructor. I consider myself fortunate having met and being able to take lessons with Michael. He takes the time to learn a prospective student's background to tailor a customized curriculum for the new student. I've been piddling around with guitars for over 20 years and he's helping me mend my haphazard style into a more solid, well rounded, and longer term playing form. My interest is parallel development understanding the theoretical under-pinning of music alongside with the fundamental techniques of guitar playing. Michael is skilled in technique, knowledgeable in theory, broad in approach, and enthusiastic about teaching. He's well organized and professional. All the positive qualities one would want from an instructor.
Lessons are enjoyable and you can go at a speed that in comfortable for you. Instructor is very nice and patient. I would refer any of my friends or family interested in playing guitar.
I have been taking lessons from Damon every weekend for 6 months, and I cant tell you how much learning from him has changed my musicianship. Before I went to him I was timid and unsure of myself as a musician, but after a short time I started seeing significant improvements. Career changing improvements. Not only did Damon fix my bad vocal tendencies, but he gave me amazing opportunities to sing around Dallas, and continues to do so. Most of all, he helped me to define myself as the artist I knew was inside of me somewhere, but was thwarted by years of rejection and mistakes. Damon taught me how to be confident, proud, and true to myself and the music I wanted to make. Thanks to him I am now writing my debut EP the way I want to. The way I always knew I could.
A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. ~Brad Henry Liam does all of the above with ease. He is excellent at being able to understand his students needs and work with them no matter what level. I was hesitant, as a beginner to even take lessons from such a highly skilled teacher. He immediately put my fears to rest. He has put me at ease and made my piano experience fun. I look forward to continuing my journey with such a talented and humble teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone at any level.
I'm so glad I found a guitar teacher like Vic. I have always been interested in learning to play guitar and wanted the best instruction possible. With only a few lessons, I feel that I've grasped concepts of music theory and already become a better player. He's patient, kind, and a very skilled musician. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor. I completely recommend working with him!
I have been working with Fluency Corp for over a year. Micah was terrific in getting me set up and matched with just the right instructor. I have loved my lessons and have learned to become fluent! I highly recommend using Fluency Corp to learn a language!
I contacted several competitors prior & they would take long to reply. Zera was not. They responded quickly, politely, & set things up very easily. No back & forth. They have a good interactive site. You can pay online. Very easy people to work with. As far as the lessons, my son is liking it, he looks forward to his lessons every week. I cant ask for more. He is learning bass guitar with Jordan.
Michael is quite proficient in both his own abilities on guitar and also his ability to teach. He is patient, and happy to answer all my questions which I appreciate as an intermediate-level guitarist. He was happy to tailor my lessons to specific areas that I already knew I wanted to address, as opposed to forcing me into a highly structured, pre-determined lesson plan, which again I appreciate. I highly recommend Michael for anyone looking to become a better guitar player and musician.
Joel is a very talented musician that is versed in all styles and has a thorough grasp of the bass.Ive played with Joel for years and consider him one of the best bassists I've played with.Ive taken lessons with Joel and found him to be a great teacher as well.Any student would benefit from his skills as a teacher.
I have been with Pete going on a year and really enjoy my lessons. I am a late senior learner and have specific things I want to learn... Blues and Boogie Woogie. Pete listened to my needs and has given me great direction. I still struggle with reading music and changing chords quickly, but I know that will come with practice. Great patient teacher!
Dr. Susan Carter-Fricks is the kind of person you hope for in a voice teacher. She is supportive, knowledgable, and is willing to work with you to reach your singing goals. I highly recommend her for voice lessons!
Moira is a lot of fun and learning the harp (or singing) with her can be either a serious pursuit or mere pleasure or a bit of both. She is a lovely, caring person with great expertise and enthusiasm for her art.
I hired Mike to provide Bass lesson to my fiancé so I can only comment second hand. I can say that after only three lessons, my fiancé is truly enjoying playing again.
I really enjoy bringing my daughter here for lessons. Aram is a wonderful teacher!!
I began taking guitar lessons from Kenneth when I was 14, and right away, I noticed his ability to mold the lesson into an experience that fit 𝘮𝘺 musical interests and what I wanted to learn. Whether I wanted to learn theory, practice a certain technique or rudiment, or just have fun learning a song, Kenneth could always adapt and make the lesson interesting and enriching. This is a quality that many music teachers lack, and it’s the aspect of his teaching that kept me enticed for so long. In addition to being a great teacher, Kenneth is a passionate music fan of many different genres, and through taking lessons with him, I was exposed to many new musical concepts that opened my eyes to the world of music I was yet to discover. Though I no longer take lessons, I can say for sure that my time with Kenneth has made me a much more skilled, receptive and well rounded musician, and I am very thankful for all the things I learned.
Things went well during first two lessons, I feel I am getting the attention I need. At this stage of my learning I am satisfied and look forward to the next lessons. The instructor is knowledgeable and I understand where we are going. I am pleased to know I can use the school's piano for extra practice during off schedule hours.
Always on time, great lessons, adapts to each student, quality teaching
I have been taking lessons with Sharon for over 10 years now and she is phenomenal. Her knowledge, education, as well as experience in piano in her lifetime is truly shown in her ways of teaching. She has strong structure in her lessons that over the years, I have really been able to improve from not being able to play at all to playing very advanced pieces. I would highly recommend you will not regret a single lesson (unless you didn't practice for that week, haha) !!!
We hired Anthony to teach our 11 yr old daughter how to play the guitar. This is her first instrument. Anthony was a pure delight to work with, was always on time and sometimes even stayed a little over to make sure the lesson(s) were taught. He even helped us find a GOOD guitar for our daughter. Our daughter looked forward to each lesson with Anthony. He even broadened his lessons to include vocal coaching as well. I would highly recommend Anthony for anyone needing a music or vocal coach.
Wonderful and patient with my 7 yr old, and she is enjoying her lessons very much!
