Noah is an excellent instructor; he encourages creativity and exploration, focuses on playing music for the joy of it while applying the right amount of pressure to motivate, and doesn’t shy away from providing alternative methods to learn new concepts. I can’t recommend Noah strongly enough foe anyone looking to improve their playing.
I must admit, I forced my daughter to take music lessons as an activity during COVID. We agreed she would try it for a month. And now, six months later she is still taking lessons and really enjoys it. Noah has an amazing ability to connect with students and help them feel successful. I am grateful that he involves the parents just enough to feel informed but also allows my daughter to have her own relationship and experience with him. She is learning so much more than just ukulele. I never dreamed that online music lessons could be so wonderful.
Noah has been a tremendous guitar teacher for my son. He is a very patient and meticulous teacher and was able to engage with my son in his classes from the very beginning. Noah is also very goal oriented and helps your kid move in the right direction when it comes to gaining skills. I highly recommend Noah for anyone who is looking for a teacher who is fun as well as ensuring your kid. gains the right skills.
My son started on-line ukulele lesson at age 5.5 with Noah and after 7-months of lessons, he still looks forward to seeing Noah every week! That's saying a lot about how great Noah is, not just as a teacher, but as a person. My son has never stuck with any other lesson or class longer than a couple of months because something about the class or instructor either scared him, embarrassed him, or upset him. Noah is extremely patient with him and allows him to be his quirky, little-kid self during the lessons, then gently steers him back to focusing on the lesson material. My son loves how fun his lessons are, and I love how much he's learning. Noah is an extremely knowledgeable teacher and I appreciate how he is also exposing my son to music theory and to playing a variety of music (genres). Noah is a fantastic teacher, I highly recommend him for students of any age.
We are so grateful for Noah and his expertise. Our daughter wanted to start piano lessons in the Covid environment and Noah jumped right in to teach her the basics with enthusiasm, patience and knowledge. Thanks Noah!!
I was referred to Tretter Studios by a homeschooling resource. My son wanted to learn guitar, which we knew could be tricky during the pandemic with only virtual lessons; however his instructor, Noah is very knowledgeable and patient. My son started with Noah about 3 months ago without any experience playing a guitar and he can now read music/tabs, and play a lot of his favorite songs. Noah provides weekly practice materials for my son, as well as feedback to me so I know how things are going. Learning an instrument is extremely challenging and often intimidating. I'm so glad we chose Tretter Studios because it's been such a positive experience. The value we receive for the cost of the lessons is also remarkable. Highly recommend.
Noah has been teaching my daughter the bass guitar over the last 8 months. Her skills have greatly developed and she's confident joining a group recital now. My daughter always looks up to the next lesson and is highly appreciative of Noah's input. As a parent, I am happy with Noah's professionalism, punctuality, and flexibility. Due to the COVID-19 Noah, adjusted to online lessons which he delivers appropriately.
Noah is a knowledgeable and talented music teacher. He is patient and good at teaching kids. Noah has been successful at teaching my daughter to read music and use proper technique for playing the piano. My daughter enjoys her piano lessons and is learning a lot. I highly recommend him.
