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.
Jan is a great piano teacher. She's also really good with kids. My kids have been enjoying her lesson. Her price is really reasonable. I'm glad to find her.
We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.
My 10 yr old daughter came to Ryan as a true beginner and left her first lesson playing 2 songs! She went into the lesson very unsure of herself, and left feeling confident and successful. Ryan's patience and easy-going friendliness was what made my daughter love working with him. His talent and outside-of-the-box teaching methods were what made me happy as a mom. We got more than our money's worth and I would highly recommend Ryan's lessons to anyone. Lessons for my daughter lasted 9 months and only ceased because Ryan relocated to another state. Our loss! Excellent teacher!
I’ve been studying guitar with Mary for about two months now, and I can’t say enough good about her. tl;dr: Mary will understand and support your goals for guitar playing, and she is beyond capable of helping you reach those goals. First, Mary is very supportive and cognizant of my goals as a musician. If I had a song in mind that I wanted to learn, I’m absolutely sure she would help me learn it. As a beginner, however, I don’t have anything in mind and happily play the tunes she gives me. Speaking of tunes, she has so many on hand. Every week she gives me new sheets with songs that cover the technique we work on. Mary’s extensive lesson repertoire certainly helps fulfill my goal of expanding my musical vocabulary to more artists and genres, all while developing my skills on guitar. Similar to her supportiveness, Mary is also very understanding yet insistent. As a busy young adult, on average I work eight to ten hours a day and follow a daily workout regimen to boot. While my goal is to practice guitar at least 60 minutes per day, on many days I don’t have time and fall short. Despite less-than-ideal practice, Mary accommodatingly works around the progress I make (or don’t make). At each lesson I can consistently expect help with last week’s trouble areas in addition to new material — Mary sure likes to press on. Can you blame her? There’s technique to master and songs to learn! :) On her teaching style, Mary is very creative. She customizes her lessons to the individual, and — I really like this about her — she tells me exactly what she wants to cover at the next two or three lessons. This way I know what she’ll teach, and I have the opportunity to discuss what I want to learn (e.g. scales, barre chords, etc.). With decades of guitar study under her belt, she can teach anything. By “teach” I mean make you really understand. She has countless analogies, anecdotes, and demonstrations for helping you learn or improve any technique. She’ll try things until it “clicks” for you. Teaching creativity like Mary’s is an invaluable skill that will undoubtedly help any student she has. To end on a light note, Mary truly is a spectacular musician. Her playing is effortless and always a joy to hear. She makes even the beginning things I’m working on sound musical and fun to play. Mary is a gem of a teacher, and I can’t recommend her enough.
Ed is talent and wonderful instructor. My son enjoys and looks forward to his guitar lessons with Ed. It's been easy to schedule lessons and Ed's responsiveness to all emails is quick and commendable.
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
Elaine has been teaching 3 of my children piano lessons for 3 years now. She has since added a 4th. She is patient and encouraging yet firm. She makes sure they strive to do their best and teaches strong technique. She also include improv, ear training, and chords. Rather than just sticking to the books, Elaine is constantly coming up with fun, creative ways to reinforce the theory the kids are learning.
Ken was able to create a teaching method designed to teach a visually impaired student. I'm amazed on how simple yet effective his methods are. Lessons were FUN yet productive. I can't emphasize enough the value of having a professional recording studio/engineer/teacher offered through Ken Fordyce and Mirror Sound Studios.
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 O'Suna has taught my son for almost 2 years. He is patient, but knows exactly how to push my son to keep trying and keep improving. David has obviously played guitar all his life and is able to also inspire my son to what he can do with this instrument. We've enjoyed our lessons with him. He is also available to answer questions if a part of the lesson wasn't understood, or doesn't sound right at home. That way we don't keep practicing it wrong all week. Real dedication to making sure the lessons can be fun, picks songs my son will like!
Scott is a true mentor, and working with him shaped not just my technical vocal skills but my identity as a performer in musical theatre and straight theatre. He expanded my belt range significantly, in ways that were healthy for my vocal chords, and he helped me develop a mixed belt that let me move throughout my vocal range with greater finesse and control. Lessons with Scott are focused and fun, a perfect mix of overall technique and specific, practical work on songs for example, he often helped me prepare for auditions, and we would then work together to shape the vocal possibilities of each role I was cast in. His deep knowledge of the range and history of musical theatre is impressive and very helpful; I also learned so much from him about the context and history of what I was singing in my lessons, and he is able to suggest great audition songs! Most importantly, Scott connects with and cares about each of his students as individuals, and as performers and vocalists, and this shows in the growth he elicits from them, creating a supportive environment with high expectations accompanied by a caring guidance that makes it possible meet those expectations (provided of course, that you hold up your end of the bargain and practice daily!).
Amber is a very patient and through teacher who is well educated in music and child development. She has a genuine love for music which I'm so happy to see is contagious to my kiddos! I have 2 children with special needs and she is the perfect teacher for them! My kids look forward to their music lessons and can't wait to show her what they practiced all week!
When I didn't have the money to pay for vocal lessons my daughters freshman year he put her in his open spots free of cost. He knew her talents and we appreciate his work with her.
I have been studying Vocals with Sami for 2 years. He is an amazing instructor, he is patient, kind and a blast to learn with. Every lesson is designed for me based on my progression from the week prior. He is always available to speak even when I don't have lessons to offer additional help. Thank you Sami for helping me become a better singer.
I have had 3 children take lessons with Little Bird Piano. From a 2 year old to a 13 year old. My children have loved the lessons, the challenge. They have improved so much. Their skills are far above others. I love the personal attention, the willingness to help them find songs they want to play. Even my baby who tagged along to the little class - picked up songs, hand motions and still sings them a year later. From piano to voice to babies to adults, you will get excellent instruction with Holly.
Aaron imbues his lessons with compassion, inspiration, and spontaneity. He's really like no other music teacher I've ever had.
Enjoy the lessons. great teacher.
The introductory lesson that I had with Ben was excellent. I've been playing for 7 months, and Ben did a wonderful job teaching me new ways to finger chords that Ive been having trouble with. He is a nice guy, and I will be taking lessons with him regularly.
I took drum lessons from Phil for many years. I found he is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and highly skilled in the trade, not to mention easy to be around and he always went the extra mile (even when I didn't practice). Being his student was highly beneficial and I feel I got a premium musical education.
