After a great stint of piano and violin lessons, we just began with Johnny Walker, Aida's strings teacher, to start my son on cello. We are so impressed with him - he knows HOW to teach, asking questions, guiding my son to think and understand rather than a mere demonstrate-and-repeat style. My son immediately took to him and can hardly wait between lessons for the next. Thank you!

“It has been a great learning experience for my two daughters. I don’t think I could ever find a better piano teacher. Not only does Ms. Heather share her great talent with my kids, she is also very friendly and always cheerful and looking forward to teaching them. My daughters have improved dramatically since we started with her a few years ago. We also really enjoy the convenience of in home lessons! I highly recommend Lessons In Your Home for music lessons. My daughters now look forward to their piano practice daily”. Great Falls, VA Resident

Hannah taught my 2 daughters beginning violin. They first saw Hannah play violin at church when she was a teenager. Both were impressed with her ability to play and the beautiful sound. Hannah instructed my 7 and 8 year old girls in her home. She was always prompt; never kept us waiting and used her instruction time well. She used different techniques and showed her versatility in instructing when one of my daughters would struggle. My daughters have very different personalities and musical abilities and Hannah was able to pull the best out of both of them, encouraging them individually and their specific abilities. Hannah's love of music and her instrument is evident whenever you hear her play or instruct. She was patient, encouraging and desiring my girls to do well, which prompted them to practice and want to do well themselves.

My son loved Amy's teaching style and personality from the first minute! His interest in learning to play the piano only increased once he started because Amy makes it so much for for him! We had a choice of several excellent teachers through Thumbtack. I regret that we could only pick one because they all appear to be great, but Amy was the perfect choice for our son and we couldn't be happier!

I have known Joanna for over 30 years now, and know that even back then she had a sheer musicality both at guitar and keyboards. Her handling of elementary school students of any grade when teaching, then middle school and older, was always carefully measured, often catering to individual needs in order to bring out or focus musical gifts, or simply to raise the level of a student's appreciation for art. She has kept that measure of regard for students of all ages since she went into non-school teaching. I also would assure anybody who wants to send a younger student to her that if after an appropriate period of time she felt they were not progressing or that music was perhaps not a good fit for them that she would be honest about that to the parents rather than have anybody waste time and resources trying to engage a child with other interests. But her goal has always been, as I have observed, to find a way to engage them in the first place. Results and honesty, as well as musical passion. What more need be said. (Please know that as a professional musician myself that this is as unbiased an opinion as I can possibly render.)

Janet was our son's violin teacher for 8 years. She was fantastic! She really catered to his interests. She is a patient and encouraging teacher. She kept him interested and challenged. She was very supportive of his concerts and Solo Ensemble - attending if she was available. He continues to play in college. She held intimate recitals in her home which were a great experience for the students. Thanks, Janet!

I found Victor here on this website for a guitar teacher for my son and when it came down to needing to hire a teacher Victor had followed up with me. So I took advantage of the first free lesson and he's been my sons guitar teacher ever since. Victor is very patient and knowledgeable, the personal attention and care he gives to each individual child is wonderful. You can tell that he has a love for music and this is his passion. I've spoken to other families that he teaches(some for several years) and they all agree. He works well with my son on incorporating styles and songs he is interested in as well as teaching music theory and basics. My son was a beginner 6 months ago and now he is playing full songs confidently. He loves coming to guitar class and learning new techniques, and songs. I plan on continuing until my son can pay for lessons himself. I highly recommend Victor Crisen.

As an adult student with no music experience, I think that Christine does a good job breaking down the basics into something that can be easily followed. She is patient and will work to accommodate busy adult schedules. She recommended the Samuel Applebaum String Builder book; which I really like as it teaches the basic hand position along with the associated notes. Rather than learning to play by listening then learning the notes. Again she can tailor her lessons based on children or adults learning abilities.

As a past board member for the Tri-County Music Association, Rochester, MA I have had the opportunity of not only knowing Emily as an individual, but hearing her play as a soloist and strolling musician. Her superb musical talent, her maturity, and her professionalism, make her an outstanding individual to hire for any event or lessons. Having known her for years, she will not disappoint you.

Ms. Linnea Marchie is an excellent instructor for my daughter. She is enthusiastic about teaching violin and brings positive energy to each lesson so that my daughter looks forward her session and actually practices almost everyday ( It is amazing). We like Linnea very much.
