Steve is awesome! I spent almost two years taking weekly lessons from him, and I've improved immensely during that time. He does a great job of blending songs and jamming with teaching the theory behind the music. I was struggling with rhythm and timing when I started, so he had me play the drums so I could get a better handle on it. Steve is a great guitarist, an awesome teacher, and I'd highly recommend him to players of any skill level looking to improve!

Both my daughters take piano lessons from Helga, and she is absolutely wonderful! They both started at a very young age, and Helga's patience is endless. She is fantastic about knowing just what each child needs, and challenging them while still recognizing what they're capable of. When she was recommended to us she was referred to as "the best piano teacher I ever had," and we completely agree with that sentiment.

Paul actually read my entire request and sent a very detailed response to my needs. Most of the others assumed that I was looking for lessons. That attention to detail and his professional accomplishments are the reason we chose him. So excited to work with him!

I am impressed with my 6 year old daughter's continued progress with Cherie as her teacher. Even though our schedule reduces time in lessons during the year, Cherie makes the time with her count. My daughter looks forward to each lesson, and that is rewarded by the successful results. Cherie's curriculum, and supportive personality make her a music teacher I highly recommend. A great teacher teaching with passion, tailored to each individual. My daughter and I look forward to working with Cherie in the future!

    About

    I am a private instructor on several instruments as well as a performing solo guitarist, singer songwriter who often performs in duos, trios and bands. TEACHING I specialize in acoustic guitar music, solo instrumental guitar and also teach beginning piano, electric bass, ukelele, and some electric guitar styles. I received my BFA - Guitar Performance from UW-Milwaukee and WI Conservatory of Music. Becoming a musician is a process that anyone can follow. Whether you want to better understand music in theory, learn a particular song or even just focus on a key phrase or lick, I can lead you through the steps to developing musical skill and ability. I'll also make the process enjoyable and fun. I offer weekly and on-call lessons in my studio. I can also make arrangements to teach you in your home, within a ten-mile radius of HeadStock Music or on days that I'm performing in your area. Lessons are also available online through Skype. PERFORMANCE While at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music I specialized in American fingerstyle guitar. I play solo guitar pieces, commonly referred to as classical guitar, however I play on a steel string acoustic and the music is a mix of American music styles: folk, jazz, rock, blues and country. My strongest instrument has always been my voice and I initially studied guitar to be better accompany myself. I enjoy songs from blues, folk, rock, country and jazz styles. I am also a writer and enjoy singing my own songs in a concert/ house concert settings. In most background situations I favor familiar popular songs from multiple eras with a few originals thrown into the mix. Currently, I play solo under my own name, and in The Mugs; a blues folk trio with guitar, mandolin and harmonica. Occasionally I sing in a folk harmony duo called the Sugar Daddies but mainly I'm out doing a hundred plus solo guitar and song performances a year. I've also done some side projects in a Replacements cover band and an Eagles cover band. Visit my website to hear musical samples.

I look forward to working with you!

      About

      I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years now and am very experienced reading and improvising. I have also been playing guitar for over 15 years now, and I have given lessons in the past.

      About

      I teach guitar lessons. I love blues, rock, folk, some other interesting styles in the independent and "cult-following" genres. I am not as comfortable with jazz. I would do an even exchange if someone wanted to learn something from me I would take jazz lessons. I believe 45 minutes for a guitar lesson is perfectly reasonable, but if someone wanted to go longer or shorter we can get into contact and figure that out.

      About

      I've been playing the guitar for over 20 years. Let me teach you the basics on becoming a great guitarist.

      My name is Tabitha (K) Flatt hence, TK Fotography. I've been taking pictures as a hobby for the past 10 years and have recently begun to market my skills. I am married and have three wonderful stepchildren, one large dog, and four cats. I teach Spanish to students ages 5 to 13 at a local district. I love taking pictures -- the candid and capturing that moment. I am happy with my work when you are happy with my work! I recently had a client (a bride whose gift from her uncle was my service) say, "You are very talented. I'm not sure what he paid, but it is the best wedding gift, and I will definitely refer you. Not to brag, but I have to say, based on one of the pictures you put up today, I was very beautiful!" That was the best thing I could have heard from a bride who was pleased at what I captured on her special day. I am a detail person -- the little things are important. Take a look at my work if you haven't already, and you will see what I am talking about! Feel free to contact me for any further questions via my contact page, email, or phone! I photograph weddings, events, seniors, families, and children.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is CPR training?

      Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (better known as CPR) is a lifesaving manual technique that pumps oxygenated blood back into the body’s organs if someone’s heart or breathing has stopped. A variety of CPR training is available to community members, employees and healthcare providers. CPR training may last two to five hours or more, depending on the content and the target audience. During the training, students will learn how to recognize and respond to an emergency situation. There are different CPR techniques for adults and children, but with both you will learn how to determine whether the person is conscious before administering chest compression. During the training you’ll learn chest compression techniques for adults and different techniques for children between the ages of 1 and 8. Students learn how to properly administer chest compressions, when the technique is appropriate and when it is not, and how long you must perform rescue measures. Students also learn what an automatic external defibrillator (AED) is and how to use it if necessary to shock a patient before administering CPR chest compressions.

      How do I become CPR and first aid certified?

      You can earn CPR training and receive first aid certification in a number of ways. Choose an online course to learn the materials remotely and then find a testing location to complete the certification process with an in-person demonstration of your knowledge and skills. Encourage your workplace to host a first aid and CPR training so employees can learn what to do in case of a workplace emergency and how to respond with lifesaving techniques. You may also be able to take a CPR or first aid class in your community. A basic CPR training may run four to five hours. After receiving CPR training, you’ll know how to respond if an adult or a child goes into cardiac arrest or stops breathing. You’ll learn how to use chest compressions to keep blood pumping to a person’s organs, which can keep them alive until an emergency responder can arrive. First aid and CPR training can also include education about how to use an automated external defibrillator (AED).

      What does a Spanish tutor do?

      The goal of a Spanish tutor is to help students improve their Spanish reading, writing, comprehension, and conversation skills. The tutor’s approaches may vary, depending on whether the instruction is individual or a group class. Many Spanish tutors practice immersion — meaning they will speak only Spanish with their pupils. For students with little to no Spanish experience, the Spanish tutor may use a mix of Spanish and English to accustom their students to speaking the language.

      A Spanish tutor can offer a wide range of services to their students. For students currently enrolled in a Spanish class through their middle school or high school, a Spanish tutor can help them with homework and language practice, as well as expanding their understanding of their current school curriculum. For adults, Spanish tutors will have different approaches based on that student’s need. Academics and those seeking high-level professional development for their career will often have more intensive and targeted lessons, drills, and interactive speaking tests. For adults who wish to learn conversational Spanish for fun or for travel, lessons may revolve around learning commonly used phrases and practicing speaking in relaxed settings.

      What is first aid training?

      With first aid training, you may be able to help save a life. First aid training can teach people who are not medical professionals how to help a sick or injured person in crisis before an ambulance arrives on the scene. Most commonly, first aid training helps teach you how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use automated external defibrillators (AEDs).

      First aid training can teach you how to respond in a variety of emergency situations, including:

      • Asthma attack
      • Anaphylaxis
      • Burns
      • Choking
      • Diabetic emergencies
      • External bleeding
      • Heart attack
      • Poisoning
      • Neck, head or back injury
      • Stroke
      • Seizure

      First aid training classes may be offered by professionals who are affiliated with the Red Cross, which offers online, in-person, and blended training classes. First aid classes are also often offered through local recreation centers, city services, schools, hospitals and private companies.  

      What do you learn in a first aid course?

      First aid training gives you a variety of lifesaving skills for responding to many different emergency situations. In a first aid course you’ll learn about how to examine someone who’s been hurt, how to use a defibrillator, how to administer cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), and how to control bleeding and trauma. Some courses include pediatric first aid as well as adult first aid; helping a choking infant, for example, is different from helping a choking adult. Although you can take CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) courses separately, most first aid training includes both.

      In a first aid course you’ll also learn how to respond to:

      • Wounds, including punctures, cuts and hemorrhages
      • Heart attacks, chest pain and respiratory arrest
      • Bone fractures, sprains and torn muscles
      • First-, second- and third-degree burns
      • Poisoning
      • Choking
      • Bites and stings
      • Hypothermia or frostbite
      • Shock and seizures
