Taking music lessons as an adult, i largely expected to feel the way i did taking lessons as a child. I never would have expected to learn everything from basic theory and technique to being able to compose pieces for multiple instruments within a month. Scott's approach is professional and relatable which is rare in a music teacher of his pedigree. I'am afforded an opportunity to grow as a complete musician with his ability to take daunting musical concepts and make them immediately understandable to a layman. I really do believe that whatever your musical goals are, he is a more than capable teacher. Its also worth noting that whenever i have had any questions throughout the week, he has taken the time to respond at length.
Ms. Jan is so sweet and very enthusiastic about teaching piano. I can really see her love for music. I am learning at a better pace than I thought I would so she must be doing something right ^_^ I cannot wait to continue improving my piano skills with Ms. Jan!
I LOVE taking piano lessons with Aleta Barber. She is a natural teacher. Although I have had years of music in elementary and high school, as well as private lessons as an adult, she has introduced me to ways of learning I've never been exposed to. I feel so fortunate to be working with her.
Have worked with Bryan since 1995 musically, collaborating in bands and in the studio full time. He is not only an amazing musician, teacher, studio producer/engineer, but and amazing guy. Easy to work with, always knows how to get you the results. Even so, finding the results you thought never existed and improving the outcome tremendously. I would definately recommend Bryan if your looking to better your musicianship and learn something new everytime you meet. I always do! Rock on B!
Mary is absolute a guitarist with passion. Profound music background and sincere attitude made her stand out among all the other guitar teachers. My 9-year-old daughter is pretty introverted, but Mary made her feel comfortable. In my daughter’s words, she is “nice, funny and good at guitar playing”. And she is not just “nice” to young student, she is strict. She wouldn’t let go her standards, which makes me, as a parent, feel assured. Very happy that I found her as my daughter’s very first guitar teacher!
My piano teacher is great, scheduling my lessons was super easy and I cant believe it but Im actually reading music. Having Music lessons in my home is very easy
I was looking for someone to help me improve my singing for my amateur theater hobby. And I found him. Jeremy is a kind, patient, and knowledgeable teacher and I would highly recommend him. I didn't realize how expensive voice lessons were going to be but now, I don't even care with how impressed I am. He can tell just by listening to me sing, what is going on internally that is causing issues, whether its pitch, tone, support, breath, mouth shape, you name it. He highly emphasizes technique which its exactly what I wanted from a teacher. My other teachers were more concerned with mastering an audition piece. Jeremy works technique through exercises and challenging pieces which will make you better at singing any song. And not just two songs that will get you the part. I have had 4 lessons and right now its a lot of deconstructing bad singing habits, which basically feels like learning how to walk because I've never sung properly before. I'm excited to see where this goes!
Ken is a fantastic teacher with tons of experience and a great attitude. I've been learning guitar from him for many years, and hope to continue for years to come! Whether you're a complete beginner (as I was) or a seasoned player interested in learning more music theory or refining your technique, he's a great coach and always has interesting lesson material. The lesson space is comfortable and you'll be treated to professional quality sound during your lessons.
JD Dorland Music has been a fantastic experience. I chose to start Piano Lessons in the middle of December which is already a very busy month and JD was very accommodating with dates and times. I am an adult with no experience in playing the Piano or reading music and my first lesson was a great experience. He is incredibly friendly and the environment was laid back and welcoming. JD provided me with the tools necessary to succeed outside of my lesson with a combination of book and online work. I truly felt like he set me up to be successful. You will not be disappointed by JD Dorland Music.
Our experience at Studio Savage has been fabulous. My daughter asked me for violin lessons and we couldn't find a better match. Theresa is very patient and explains very well to my daughter what she need to practice during the week. The lessons are good and fun, some times lessons involve games than after a few weeks transform into songs on the violin. Also, my daughter is catching fast on notes and reading music while she plays. Most important, my daughter is still exited about the violins, I am happy because she is doing progress, and we both love the teacher.
I really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with him.
David has a way of teaching music that is like no other - he teaches how to really understand music instead of memorizing drills. He mostly wants you to have fun playing music for life. He's been great with our son, who started at age 7 and is now 12.
Aaron is a great teacher. He explains the theory well, provides good feedback for improvement. He encourages practice outside the class providing multiple resources to facilitate this. He is also flexible in accommodating various types of teaching, going step by step vs learning through a song.
Cayce embodied all of the above qualities and beyond. I learned so many valuable lessons from her -- ones that have shaped me as a vocalist and an individual. Her heart for students and music continues to inspire me, and her passion has given me a reflection of the depth and beauty that lies in being a musician.
Sami is a very patient and nice teacher. He's teaching technics are very entertaining.
Almost twenty years ago, I stopped singing. I’m not sure why really, but other hobby passions took priority, and recently, I found myself yearning to be part of a community effort at ensemble singing. I realized with the prospect of auditioning that I felt completely unprepared for this task, having been away from singing for so long, so I took to Thumbtack in search of a voice coach/teacher to get me back on track. My search quickly found me in the music studio of Chris McCafferty. (Read previous statement as “I was lost, and now I’m found”). I couldn’t possibly be more pleased with Chris and his teaching style. He offers the optimal combination of encouragement and support, along with practical truths about my areas for improvement in relatable ways that I can understand, with a communication style that is both kind and actionable. In addition to expressing an exceptional teaching style, Chris is an amazing human being, and his goodness radiates from him. If you’re looking for a voice teacher, regardless of your skill level or age, you owe it to yourself to pay a visit to Chris, and see for yourself how much he can enrich and progress your vocal technique.
I went from barely understanding piano to understanding it so much that I could sit down and teach my self a song, or listen to piano music and then play it. I’ve only been taking lessons for a few months too. Holly personalizes lessons that fit your interests in music and your exact needs to help you exhilarate! Piano is a language and most piano teachers only teach part of the language, but Holly teaches every single part of the language of piano.
Curt Golden is one of the greatest guitar teachers around. His advice and direction has accelerated my learning probably nearly tenfold. The best instructor in Seattle and one of the best in the world.
Ben is very professional musian and a good teacher. You can tell that he reall knows his stuff. I am glad that I find him as my guitar teacher and I recommend him to everyone who wants a good patient teacher!
Shawn is a wonderful and patient piano teacher. My daughter had lessons as a younger child and needed a change as she moved beyond the beginner stage. She's been with Shawn for about 8 months and her playing has improved significantly. She enjoys practicing again and is motivated by his instruction. He's offering her just the right amount of challenge, creativity and encouragement. And this is a 12 year old I'm talking about (hello parents of tweeners and teenagers)! We also appreciate his highly organized website and timely communication. All around Shawn is a fantastic, solid professional who is passionate about music, seriously grounded in theory and very consistent in his instruction with youth. If you're considering music lessons with him, you will be lucky to get on his schedule.
Abe is knowledgeable, patient, professional but most importantly, he is passionate about teaching music. I’ve had guitar teachers in the past and I could honestly say Abe is the best. He makes everything so clear and challenges me each week so I’m not bored. He’s professional but he also makes lessons fun! I would highly recommend him as an instructor ;-)
