My daughter is really enjoying the lessons with Soundboard Music School! The teacher has a caring personality which really helps my daughter learn.
I really enjoyed taking the class at the library and now I am taking lessons regularly. My teacher is a great and I’m learning lots!
My daughter’s teacher is an awesome, knowledgeable, organized, on-time, and all-around wonderful person to receive lessons from. Having Soundboard Music School come to our home is absolutely wonderful. I can listen in and do dishes at the same time! It saves me a ton of time not having to drive and sit and wait during the lessons.
With our teacher, our son was introduced to both the acoustic and classical guitar. His versatility and insight to our son’s learning style enabled him to grasp the basics of both guitars in a relatively short amount of time. Combining patience and encouragement with a love of the guitar and creativity, our teacher inspires his students to share in this love of music and to excel in their practice.
I have not had a better music teacher. Honestly, my teacher has a good way with his students and is very insightful in what is needed in each individual’s guitar practice and lesson times. Each lesson is made to fit the need of the student, not the student to fit the teacher. He gives just the right amount of challenge, and just the right amount of support so that the student may thrive.
The teachers of Soundboard Music School offer a vast and abundant knowledge of the music world. Their patience is unparalleled and they know what works best for each individual. This makes them one of a kind.
We really enjoyed the approach Soundboard Music School took with the music lessons. My daughter really enjoyed the teacher and it was super convenient to have him come to our home!
The music class at the library was fun and entertaining. We would love a followup class!
Outstanding instructor! The class was very well organized and my 9 year old son really enjoyed it.
My teacher is the best!
