Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

I taught Mathematics and Physics in German language in a high school in Hungary for 10 years. I am not a native German speaker, but I speak German very well.
If you are at Beginner or Intermediate level (or between them) and looking for somebody teaching you German or refreshing your German knowledge, I might be the right person.
Through every-day conversations I teach you grammar, vocabulary and German culture, to be prepared for a trip to Germany.

My crochet teacher , Andrea, was excellent. Very patient, on time and an excellent teacher. It was first time doing crochet and the first time I used take lessons. I was very impressed with both and would use them again.

This Instructor is like Comfort Food and Exercise. ...!

Ms. Jane H. is the ONLY instructor Ive ever had that has made me feel so comfortable and confident with learning myself in my singing abilities. .. (of which I THOUGHT was minimal to say the least) . I didnt think the talent im learning to grasp and manipulate was in me until I met Jane..
Ive listened to her talent on YouTube, and I know for sure Jane will get me to the big leagues with my gifts..
If your looking for an Instructor that nurtures with fun your latent potential to full blown "Talent"..; Start Here with Lady Jane H..

Drum · In home
Trevor has been my 12 year-old daughter's drum teacher for over a year and has started teaching my 14 year-old daughter and me the guitar. Above all, Trevor instills his love of music into every lesson...and to every student. He custom-tailors each lesson to the student's style, needs and goals. Lessons are always fun, positive and productive. He is responsible, always on time and communicates well. Trevor has been a great find. He is an amazing teacher.

Trevor is a knowledgeable and capable teacher. I am not a beginning student, I have a degree in music and I have played guitar for many years. I was looking for someone to help take my playing in a different more refined direction. Trevor is excellent. He knew I had an understanding of music already and came to me with a nuanced and exciting curriculum.

He is personable, professional, and most of all, an excellent teacher.

Professional, fun, well-worth-it

Colton has provided excellent Tuba lessons for my 6th grader playing music for the first time. He is responsive to student needs and moves at a just right pace. He is friendly and fun. He addresses what my son is needing to practice for school and then takes it to the next level. He covers not only the skills for playing the tuba but also etiquette of instrument care, being in an ensemble, and music theory. He's easy to schedule with. Highly recommended.

Expect great things with Colton

Colton is passionate about music and you can see that right away after 5 minutes of talking to him. He is incredibly talented and my emotions during the lesson range from intimidation, respect, to excitement and motivation. Colton should be found teaching at a university sharing coffee with tweed covered professors leading hoards of students to musical enlightenment. His excitement for music is contagious and I leave the lesson feeling recharged for my practices and ready to take on new projects. He has a way of demanding the best of you and having a good time altogether without you even noticing.

If you want the best, then schedule a lesson with Angelika. I am an adult who wanted to learn more about piano but also in understanding music in general. So far, I have learned many techniques that make quite a difference in the way a piece sounds and in how much enjoyment I (and anyone who may be listening!) get from playing it. Angelika explains things very well and has the patience sometimes needed when learning something new…or in becoming better at it. Go ahead, do it for yourself (or those you love). You will not be disappointed!
