Tyreese is super patient and thoughtful in his instruction and fine-tuning. Couldn’t have asked for a better instructor after a 30 year hiatus from an instrument that is fast becoming so dear to me once more!
Very good, very clear, very patient. I can actually make a sound out of the clarinet.
The teacher was wonderful. But the platforms connection was poor. Really enjoyed the lesson.
Today was a really good lesson. I am really getting into it. I thank You from the bottom of my heart.
Tyreese is a great instructor. He understands what my needs are as a beginner, As an older adult I am learning how to study all over again. Tyreese is patient and giving me the confidence to be great at playing my flute. One of my many dream goals is learning the flute. You’re never to old to learn new things!+ Read More
This was a dynamic lesson. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My daughter is 11 years old and just started playing the flute for band. She was struggling to keep up and getting frustrated. Started lessons with Tyreese and she has improved dramatically. What's more, he is very encouraging and helps her to believe in her potential. She looks forwards to the lesson weekly, and I would recommend Tyreese highly.+ Read More
Tyreese is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor, I am very pleased with with the progress I am making with him. I would not trade him for any other teacher.
As usual it was a great lesson, guess what i have just learned to play the flute; actually play, thanks to none other than Tyreese and his tolerance with me, I think I am going to the street corner and belt out the one line that I learned. Wish me luck.
As usual an excellent teacher. He gives it his all.
Mr. Pleasanton explains concepts thoroughly and great insight on musical theory's.
Mr. Pleasanton tutored me for three years on Clarinet. He's very punctual, respectful, and the tools he uses to teach are very useful! The knowledge he shares is priceless!
Tyreese has been my daughter's instructor for 4 years. He is an amazing flute player and instructor. Tyreese is always professional, organized and a pleasure to work with.
