I have been playing guitar for 4 years now and I would love the opportunity to teach others the skill. I have a guitar already but if you want to use yours that is fine too. Music has always been a passion of mine, and I hope to get people just as excited about it as I am.

About Kyra

I have been playing guitar for 4 years. I try to listen to all types of music so I can be a more versatile teacher. I enjoy helping people do hands-on things, and I try to use different styles because I believe everyone is different.

Jonathan did a great job. I’m starting from scratch! Patient and very understanding. Loved it.
Hope
John is a very effective teacher. I took bass lessons and I have improved so much. John is an amazing teacher and I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn the bass guitar or upright bass.
Steve
Jonathan taught me when I was around middle school age and has left a lasting impression on how I approach the bass and music 10-ish years later. Under his tutelage I learned music theory, techniques, and all sorts of different genres and styles.

His lessons were always very professional. I always felt challenged, but not overwhelmed, by the material being taught. He also made it easy to be interested in the lessons; he would always ask if there's any song or genre that I wanted to learn and that sort of thing.

Overall, definitely a 5/5 top shelf educator and musician.

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Lessons are structured according to the level and age of the student. I believe that teacher's approach must be flexible and according to the student's need, their personal goals and development.
Apart from introduction and building of pianistical skills and musical understanding - theory and ear training, sight reading, I also try to introduce repertoire from different epoques and genres which helps student broaden their knowledge.

About Sandra

I have been teaching piano and theory since year 2000. Apart from teaching privately, I served in music elementary, middle and high schools in Belgrade. Residing in Miami from June 2015, I served in Miami Fine Arts Academy, Music Works and Allegro. Bachelor Degree in Piano from Belgrade Universi

When I came to Sandra I was one month away from my college piano audition and in need of a miracle. I had to prepare four quite difficult pieces and I had not taken any piano lessons since I was 12 years old (over 6 years). I knew this sounded very impossible but I went for it anyway. A month later, I got accepted into the Piano Performance program. So basically, Sandra is a miracle worker. She didn't only help me ace these pieces from scratch and learn the proper way and style to play them in, but she also helped me record my audition tapes and let me use her piano for them. She took her own personal time to give me extra help so I could get into this university and she was always supportive and caring too. Not only is she a piano master, but she is also extremely nice so every lesson was very pleasant and enjoyable. My piano skills greatly improved in just a month and I cannot thank her enough for everything she's helped me achieve. So if you are looking for an amazing piano teacher, you just found her! Seriously, look no further, you will not be disappointed.

Sandra is an amazing teacher! She is strict and kind, funny and serious at the same time. Just perfect for improving your skill fast and productive.

I am 48 years old and have been playing Bass since 9 years of age. I’ve played classical and jazz professionally since I was 14 years old. I play Electric as well as String Bass. I am currently a resident Bassist at the legendary Preservation Hall Jazz Club in New Orleans LA since year 2000. I tour extensively having performed in many countries around the world. I teach adults as well as children and feel it is an opportunity for me to give back to the world that which music and more specifically the Bass has given me.

I had the honor to work with Mitch over the course of 2 years. He was so patient with me, taking his time to not only teach me how to play the bass but to cultivate a deeper understanding of music theory. He always made me feel comfortable with the level I was at and it was awesome to see him perform on a weekly basis with some of NOLA's jazz greats. I'm looking forward to working with Mitch again!

If you ever wanted to know how it all fits together, now's the time to learn! Why does music sound good to us? Why do certain chords have certain qualities? What is the 'science' behind the sound? I can answer these questions and set you up to shine in any musical setting with a knowledge of music theory.

About Evan

I have been playing music professionally for 10+ years but I also have a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience from Temple University. My background in a psychology discipline allows me to have a better understanding of the mechanisms of learning, specifically related to music. Learning takes place

Do you wish you could sing at karaoke night or in front of your friends without feeling embarrassed? If your voice isn't quite up to your standards, it can be easy to let that fear hold you back from something you love doing. Here, Hayward, CA voice teacher Molly R. shares her advice...   “I really LIKE to sing -- the problem is… I hate my singing voice!” Surprisingly, this is something I've heard quite a few times from my students, as much as I wish that it weren't the cas …
