I’m taking beginner cello lessons with Linda.

She is super positive and encouraging and meets me exactly where I am in my learning and goes from there.

She asks what I want to do, points out when I miss things (like not taking a proper pause), and teaches me new skills (theory, now technique, etc.)

Very positive experience! After four weeks I can play cello while site reading the bass clef (I knew how to read piano music but not the bass clef very well).

I’m going to renew my lesson subscription with Linda!
John R.
Linda was awesome, very patient with a total beginner with not only cello but also playing music. She is great teacher , i can tell that from our first lesson.
Steven
My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Online Trombone Teacher

Trombone:
A musical instrument in the brass family where sound is produced when the player's vibrating lips (embouchure) cause the air column inside the instrument to vibrate. Nearly all trombones have a telescoping slide mechanism that varies the length of the instrument to change the pitch. I will start with the basics. Proper breathing, reading, notes, rhythms, songs, theory, and improvisation.

Karen was great!
Carter
This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

Mr Tom is Fantastic with my 6.5yr old. Patient, fun, relates well. Adjusts weekly to his skill and schedule (if we didn't get a practice in). Virtual works well...I had my doubts but it is good. Well planned and prepared.
Madisen
I had fun. I was only looking to have motivation to practice while I was waiting for my band to start playing together again. He showed relevant and new exercises. I learned new things and gained confidence to play louder. The pieces were fun and a little challenging. He's a good instructor.

We needed a Trombone teacher for my 7th grader this past summer and Jessie was available. He has since then proven to be a lovely teacher - very knowledgable, supportive, easy to understand and professional. I would definitely recommend him to other parents."

"I am a high school student who has been taking trombone lessons for four years, and I have been playing for six years. I was having trouble on this difficult piece that had a wide range of notes, and I needed help with this because I had an upcoming state competition. Eventually, it was recommended to me to find a professional who taught at a collegiate level, and that was when I went online and found Mr. Gallo. I decided to sign up with him for six lessons just to see what I needed to work, but when I started taking lessons with him, I realized how much improvement I needed to make on my trombone. He had denoted instantly in my first lesson what I was doing wrong. Thanks to Mr. Gallo's phenomenal teaching, I have embraced a more acute and accurate practice routine as well as a better embrasure which has assisted me in unlocking a higher range on my trombone than I have ever reached before. The practice technicalities he has taught me that have become very advantageous to me, and will be easily instituted in more complicated pieces in the future."
