I'm one lesson in with Stevie, but I can already tell he's a great teacher. He's incredibly chill, patient, and personable. Our first lesson consisted of learning a few basic cords, discussing and writing down some goals, and then assigning me some homework. Can't wait to continue my lessons with him!
I am having an incredible experience working with Debbie Kirkland. What a pro! I have only had a couple lessons, but she has been so patient helping a novice such as myself. Debbie is big on technique, and her comprehensive approach (even getting me down on a mat to show me proper breathing and placement) shows her commitment to her students. I feel like the foundation I am building will serve me well as I progress in my lessons. Even though it’s challenging and frustrating at times, I’m excited every time I go for my lesson. Debbie’s enthusiasm and passion for her craft make it enjoyable, and I’m grateful I found her and look forward to continuing my training under her direction.
What a patient and thoughtful teacher. Tona's instruction showed immediate results and is making the process of learning a new instrument fun and rewarding. I want to practice and look forward to our lessons!
Gregg combines a solid understanding of musical theory with a genuine passion for music. He cares about his student's progression as musicians but also forms a bond with them personally. He understands how to tailor lessons to suit the needs and desires of each individual student. He is welcoming and non-judgmental which makes it easy for beginners to feel comfortable. He is reliable and a good communicator. Most of all, he makes practice fun.
Although I have only had a few sessions, I have been extremely pleased with my lessons and the interaction with Debbie. She appears to be a professional who cares about customer satisfaction. Our lessons begin on time and her experience and knowledge in teaching is obvious. I am very pleased with Debbie's studio and would recommend her to others.
Morgan is a great guitar teacher. I have taken lessons off and on since 1972. That's a long time. Each time the teacher would show me some dreaded "music theory". I always resisted and just went to "show me the chords...show me the licks." Guess what? Morgan got through to my hard head after all these years. His method of showing theory is reasonable and logical and I FINALLY got it!! Hooray! The benefits of understanding the WHY behind the guitar and not just the HOW are ENORMUS. I Highly recommend Morgan.
Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
I've been taking piano lessons for a month now with her, and not only have I progressed technically at a good pace, I've also been having a ton of fun!
We had a CPR lesson. He was friendly and very accomodating. Not to mention the price, it was the best around!!!
My 6 year old son took the piano lessons with Lisa for over a year and I am amazed at his tremendous improvement in such a short time span. She is very patient and encouraging and my son really enjoys her class. Great experience with Lisa all the way around. Highly recommended!
We have been taking voice lessons with Ms. Lamm for 5 years (first my daughter, now my son) and they both love her. They have also learned and improved so much!
My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!
Sean is great! My son loves his lessons and looks forward to his time with Sean- and his skills have improved tremendously!
Maddie has been a wonderful vocal coach for our 11 year old aspiring musical theater star. Her preparation, warm ups and song choices are fantastic. She has worked with Celeste on her stage presence and has given her the confidence to sing with abandon! I love how much she has grown as a singer in such a short time!
Wanlu is an excellent instructor, she is patient, fun, and seems knowledgeable about her craft.
I hired Patricia to help me improve my spoken Spanish in preparation for an upcoming conference in Argentina. We meet three times per week and converse about a wide range of topics, from technical workplace vocabulary to casual conversation. Patricia has been a tremendous help for me to refurbish my Spanish skills and improve my speaking precision. I hope to continue taking lessons even after the conference is over!
My teenage daughter has had several lessons with Orla and we have found her to be professional, kind and extremely knowledgeable about mechanics of the voice as instrument. She brings her enthusiasm and warmth to each lesson and my daughter very much enjoys working with her. In the few lessons that they've had so far, we have seen improvement in both voice technique and comfort of performance.
My daughter is taking self-defense lessons before she heads off to college. She is learning very much from Brian and enjoying her time.
I have been very happy with the guitar instruction that my son has received from Brain. He is a creative and patient teacher that really takes an individual interest in the student. Highly recommended !
I took voice lessons from Mrs. Marquita in high school, and can accredit her with being the reason I qualified for a 14 women a Capella group. Her lessons were well thought out, and pushed me to be better. She was warm and welcoming and worked diligently to ensure I understood the music and my voice. I would recommend her to any and everyone!
My experience with Mr. Penney is unparalleled and unequal with respect to any other voice teacher I've ever had. I thought a longtime voice teacher was the best until she passed away and I had to find a new teacher. Then I found Mr. Penney and I've never looked back. Everyone noticed a difference in my voice once I started lessons with him. He hears things in your voice like no one else and he is able to translate that into advice and guidance that enables his students of all ages to reach their potential and their goals.
