Piano Review for Robert Hitz
As part of my goal in life is that when I turned 60 I wanted to have something creative that would enrich and fulfill the latter years of my life. Having watched my aging father play piano was an image I have always appreciated. My father had been my piano teacher as a child and I was ready to get back into piano. I found Robert Hitz, my piano teacher, through TakeLesson.com. I have been taking piano lessons with Robert now for 10 months. Takelessons.com really made it easy to find Robert who was only 5 miles from my home.

It has been the best 10 months that was totally unexpected. What I didn’t experience as a child, that I do now, is I have a genuine love of music that feels inherently inside me. My father and son are both musicians and I now realize I must have a natural instinct for music and a love I never knew.

Robert has made the experience absolutely wonderful with his natural gift for teaching and making you feel totally at ease when you feel totally illiterate and lacking confidence. While I learned piano as a child, I totally lost the ability to read music or remember any scales, chords or composition.

Here is what’s great about Robert. You learn everything you need to learn, but in an unconventional style. He has taught me everything from chord progressions, scales, reading music and being able to totally improvise my own piano compositions. From understanding the basics, he has enabled me to just sit at the piano and make beautiful music that I create. My husband has been in total support and awe of how far I have come in the short 10 month time.

I work full-time and truly have little time to practice. Again, Robert has a total appreciation for the busy life of his students and works around the fact that you may come back each week with having had little to no time to practice the prior lesson. One of the best parts of my lesson is when Robert “drives” and I get to play along improvising to his music. He picks a scale and we just play together. I call it doodling on the piano and it is really awesome to feel so free to just listen and play along making beautiful music together. I walk out of every lesson feeling so elated and motivated knowing I am getting better and better. Practicing is pure pleasure and dramatically reduces the stresses of life and work.

I have a new appreciation for listening to music. I’m an avid power walker and now I listen to piano music while I walk. We fill our home with music and the stress levels just take a nose dive as soon as we put the music on. Listening to the intricacies of music has given me a total peace of mind that was unexpected and a true gift.

Robert has a great following of talented and gifted piano and voice students of all ages (children, teens, college students and adults up into their 80’s). We have been to several of his student concerts. One of my favorite venues is the Cabaret in Germanos Restaurant in Little Italy. Great food, great music and so much fun to get to meet and listen to all of Robert’s students. Robert creates concerts all year round with his students either at his home or in around town. Such a great way to meet new and really interesting people that are different from your usual crowd of friends.

If you are considering taking piano or voice lessons, go for it and meet Robert for yourself. I can’t say enough how great he is as a teacher and now a friend.

I developed a desire later in life to learn how to play jazz and blues piano. I was very fortunate to start learning from Mike. He started me out with basic blues and over time I progressed into many of the jazz standards. Because he is also an accomplished guitar player, at all his lessons, he would accompany me while I played the new piece of music I was learning. He also does this if you are learning the guitar. This was very helpful in giving me a more complete musical experience, as I also learned to hear and play with other musicians. He is an extremely patient and upbeat instructor, constantly giving me positive reinforcement. I would get a new tune to practice as I became more proficient with the previous one. Each new tune became progressively more challenging. Having taken lessons from Mike for many years, I also witnessed his teaching and developing of younger kids. He really works with them in a positive way giving them as much time as they need to turn the corner on each tune and progress forward. They seem to enjoy it and he has developed some great musicians. As part of his instruction, he gives all his students an opportunity to participate in a Jazz Band he puts together. In this Jazz Band he leads all the players in working together though a jam session. Other players may include guitarists, brass players and keyboardists, young and older. Frankly I am forever grateful to Mike for helping me create the foundation to play jazz and blues piano both alone and with a group of other musicians.

I had been taking piano lessons for close to 6 years when I started with Mike. I learned more about playing jazz from him in a year than I had in all that time from a number of other teachers. Very easy to get a long with and makes class a lot of fun. Very highly recommend!

I have lived in and worked in and breathed recording music since I was a kid. Back then, it was a big deal. You needed two inch tape and a half a million dollars of gear.

Now I have a way for even beginners to do the unthinkable: start recording at their the very first session with just a three-piece studio using Ignite software, a laptop and a small controller. This is not just dragging loops around. I mean real recording. Let's talk!

My son has been taking lessons with Randy for two years. Randy’s approach has been holistic not just focusing the technical aspect of reading notes and learning scales. Early on he had my six-year-old son working on figuring out songs by ear. Randy had adapted the speed and content based on my son’s interest. At first we weren’t sure how this would translate to learning to play piano but now when he is playing sheet music, the transition is easier because he knows what the note should sound like. It was like Hoosiers when the basketball team practiced without a ball. Learning the basics first. My son has grown so much all around musically with Randy as his teacher.

My sister and I have been taking piano lesson with Randy for about two and a half years. No words can describe how grateful we are to have found Randy. He has taken our piano experience into a whole new level. His method of teaching is great and most importantly fun. He is not only our music teacher but he is now our life mentor and a family. He is always so patience with us even when we make him work too hard. THE BEST PERSON IN THE UNIVERSE!!! (Sophia)

My first lesson with Cyndi was a complete giant step towards my goal. She explains things well and we hit it off right away. We got right to work on the good technique that I had never had. She pushed me to the limit and more, which is what I asked her to do.
Aside from doing the all-important breathing and scale work I learned the secret of an effective vibrato. She explained it in a very simple way. For me it was a revelation to think of it like this; an immediate breakthrough for me!
I was sent home with some breathing exercises and scale work as well as how to effectively sing the song I had brought along to work on with her.

Cyndi has a beautiful soul and is a very effective and positive teacher.

Thank's Cyndi! See you next week.

Cindy Is one of the best teachers! I love how she works with my girls, she takes her time and doesn't miss details. She's an outgoing person and my girls are always so excited to go to her lessons. I'm really greatful to have her as my daughters teacher. I know because of her skills my girls will go far in singing. I highly recommend her as a teacher.

My daughter and I are very happy with Cyndi's work, doing jazz vocal instruction.

My daughter walks out of each session with an ear to ear grin because Cyndi not only has taught her well and taken full advantage of the time spent, but also because Cyndi is a great encouraging force who brings some TLC to the lessons and positive support that helps my daughter's confidence (an area that she sometimes has struggles with).

Cyndi brings the "whole package" with professionalism, understanding of the craft, a determination to help a student get things right before moving up and on to the next step/level. She also brings a great deal of patience, as well as the TLC catering to the needs of my daughter and working with her at a realistic pace with the goal of mastering skills.

She communicates with me as needed/requested and has been very accommodating when needed. My daughter previously worked with another singing instructor and we had a bit of a disappointing experience. We drive 10x as far now to meet with Cydni because she is worth the commute.

This has been a truly enjoyable experience.

Don was teaching several of my charter high school students in guitar/vocal and music production. After a quick observation of his classes, I signed up for lessons as well. I am an adult student and have been taking guitar/vocal performance lessons with Don for three years. This has been a truly enjoyable experience. Don combines proper technique with enough creativity to make our lessons fun. Don is an inspirational teacher. He tuned into my musical tastes and tailored his lessons to my desires. I highly recommend Don to any adult or youth students interested in furthering their skills and enjoyment of music performance.

Family Fun on Ukelele and Strumstick

Don has been wonderful to work with as a Ukelele and Strumstick instructor. I had an idea to get music lessons for my husband and 5 year old daughter as a Christmas gift. The thought was to have special Daddy and daughter time; sharing something that my husband loves to do. Don has worked with us to create a whole experience for them around music lessons. Don has succeeded in building an environment for our daughter to enjoy the music lesson experience. The first time she played 'hot crossed buns' brought a tear of joy to my eyes. He has even included me in the group lessons on Strumstick. My husband has expanded his knowledge of musical instruments and enhanced his playing skills with Don's skillful instruction. Don has made the whole experience delightful for our family.
