My daughter really likes Debbie's style of teaching and has learned more from her in a few lessons than she had with a previous instructor in an entire year.

I've been working with Tim for almost 2 years now. Tim has a great, private, home studio in his basement with about a dozen different acoustic and electric guitars, a variety of bass and amps, and tons of other equipment like microphones, recording software, effect peddles, etc... You don't need to bring your own equipment if you don't want to. If you do, Tim also has a work bench and can help with repairs, maintenance, and fine tuning. His studio is in Canton and convenient for lessons. Plus, Tim is very flexible and able to accommodate me when my schedule changes suddenly. When I first started with Tim, I had been playing on my own for about a year. Tim is an amazing musician but didn't make me feel bad about my level (or lack there of) of skill. Tim first taught me the basics of foundational guitar theory (notes, scales, chords grips, chord theory, keys, etc) and focused on technique, picking, fingerstyle, and strumming patterns. However, he kept it light and fun and we worked in learning the songs I wanted to learn at the same time, making the experience enjoyable instead of a chore. Tim is always willing to help transcribe and tab out a song for me, or a solo I want to reproduce, or other melodies/chord progressions from other songs. He is even willing to send out videos or recordings to use for practice purposes. We are now delving more into music theory and more advance compositions and songs.

I started as a complete novice on the bass, and after just two years with Morgan, I've sat in with a band playing at a local nightclub and have been asked to join a group. Morgan really tailors the lesson to your experience and interest, and he has an excellent grasp of music theory. The way he teaches makes it easy to put what you've learned to work in real-life playing situations.

Don is a very accomplished guitarist with a wealth of knowledge. It shows that he is eager to impart his knowledge. I had my first lesson with him today and I learned so much. He incorporates music theory in to his lessons to show us why things are played the way they are and where they originated from. He was patient and very encouraging. His soloing skills are phenomenal and I am excited to learn from him. I highly recommend him to musicians of all levels. He is now my jazz guitar guru! Hail to the Guitar Chief Don!

I went to Dan to learn music theory on guitar, and Dan was enthusiastic, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. After just 6 months I was able to start transposing songs on the fly. Would definitely recommend Dan to anyone looking to build their skills on guitar and music theory.

Brian was awesome! I had him perform at my wife's 40th birthday party and he was great. He learned a few new songs (in addition to the extensive list he already knows) that my wife and her friends loved when he sang them. He was very accommodating in that he performed his first set outside and then moved inside. I highly recommend him and will hire him for other parties in the future!

I am a fan of piano lessons with Sean primarily because he works at your pace and works with the direction you want to move toward with your music. He is extremely flexible with scheduling lessons - I decided to meet on a bi-weekly basis and whenever a need has come up to postpone a lesson, he has always been very understanding and hasn't had any problem with rescheduling. I have only been taking lessons for a few months with Sean and this was my first time learning how to read and play piano music, but I can already hear the difference from what it was like when I first started to now. He does focus in on technique, yet also allows time for playing music that you want to play. If you're a student that enjoys a little more flexibility and less rigid lessons, this is the instructor for you. He is extremely reliable and great with responding back to you. His passion for piano music is clear and if you ever get a chance to hear him play, he's great to listen to on the piano!

I hired Jack and one of his associates for jazzy background music at my house on two separate occasions. He was easy to work with, arrived on time, and his fee was very reasonable given his high talent level. I have no hesitation in recommending Jack for his music service, whether to play at an event or for music lessons. And I would definitely use him again.

Marc is such a delight to work with. He is an excellent piano teacher, patient with the kids, teaches them not only how to play but the music theory and historical context. He is super organized and helpful when it comes to scheduling too. So glad we found Marc!

To put it simply, I would not be the musician I am today without Max. He is an incredible instrumentalist, audio engineer, and teacher. I have learned so much about music theory, performance, recording and producing, and everything in between. Multiple times he helped me take a song from an idea to a finished product, teaching me the process throughout. I would recommend Max to anyone who wants to dive deeper into the world of music in whatever way you want, as he is fully prepared and more than qualified to teach you.

My son, Ian, is having a wonderful experience being taught flute by Laura Kaufman. She brings the best combination of playfulness and seriousness to the lessons. She always has new approaches - and sometimes useful gadgets - to get her message about good embouchure and breathing across. She is encouraging and supportive. I recommend her highly!

My 6-years-old daughter takes private piano lessons with Ms. Anahita. she is experienced in teaching young kids. My daughter progresses steadily and gains confidence from the encouragement Ms. Anahita. Ms. Anahita is a wonderful and talented instructor. She is very patient and caring to her students.

Jabari has been a wonderful teacher. He is methodical, knowlegable, enthusiastic and patient. I am a beginner adult student who was looking for somebody well-versed in classical music, and with an ability to teach both theory and practical. He has been everything I was looking for in a teacher. You can't go wrong!

Verified review

Janet Greene was my son’s private lessons teacher for almost ten years. She worked with him as a 4th grader until after graduation. His love for his viola and music is in large part due to her passion for music and her gentle guidance to the nuances of music and playing. She also encouraged him to practice every day and we have fond memories of him walking around the house every evening playing his instrument. She often found other venues for him play which gave him confidence in his ability to play in front of others. I believe that one reason he is still playing his instrument in college is the love for music she helped him develop. I highly recommend her as an instructor, tutor and person!

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
