My daughter LOVES her voice lessons AND her teacher! I like the ability to take lessons month to month and not be held to a lengthy contract. I would recommend anyone and everyone to Bigel Music!
Awesome Place – Bigel Music is a high quality place for musical instruction. Every instructor and employee show great attention and compassion to everyone the minute they walk through the door. Larry Bigel, the owner, is a fantastic guy who will always treat you like a great friend. The atmosphere is great for individuals of all ages. My personal experience has been nothing short of amazing. My bass guitar instructor, Richard, is a very knowledgeable musician who encourages me to ask questions. Try finding that at another instructional studio. Believe me, it's rare! Awesome. That's the perfect word to sum up Bigel Music. Thanks guys!
Great Piano Instructors – My daughter has been taking piano lessons for over three years at Bigel Music. Due to a scheduling conflict, she started taking lessons with Cliff since late January. We have been so happy to be able to get another great teacher in Cliff. He
Worst Music service ever – 1-This place is NOT very accommodating, teachers are frequently absent and your kid is switch back and forth between instructors. If you must in roll your child make sure he is never with CLIFF ( as he knows nothing about music and NOT Only that, my child has been taking lessons with him and I did not see improvements, he never takes the time to come and talk to me as a parent and update me as other teachers do walk outside and talk to parents. I ask My daughter what did you not get anything new for last 2 weeks and she told me he wastes time during lessons to get his water so they never have time to go to the next lesson..so it takes her 3 weeks sometime to get one new song and no she is not a high level..As a result she gets bored at home practicing same old song!
2- There is no place for you as a parent to sit, you have to be in the parking lot.. although they have room inside to position a chairs ...
3- On many occasions I was not told if a teacher is going to be absent until the day of practice which is very inconvenient
4- Take your money elsewhere many teachers that can come to your house where you see/hear what your child is learning and you dont have to wait in a parking lot
Music Lessons – I have both of my children enrolled for violin lessons at Bigel Music. Not only are they extremely courteous, my children absolutely love their instructor. He is patient, kind and extremely motivating. Both of my kids are now begging for piano lessons from Bigel Music as well.
Very flexible lessons provide excellent instruction – I have two children that always loved listening to music. When they were in preschool, they would always sing the songs in circle time, try and imitate the teachers movements. When my daughter (the older child) turned seven, we decided to get her music lessons. Some people suggested she start with piano. But she really wanted to play the guitar. I started her at Bigel and after a few months, she's already made great progress reading music and playing songs we can recognize. We just started my other child on drums and he's been having a lot of fun. Due to the hectic lifestyle and various other activities my kids have been involved with, we've had to change our lesson times quite often. They've always done their best to accommodate us and I'm very grateful for that. I would recommend Bigel Music to anyone interested in starting their child in lessons.
A great local music store – I recently found this cool little music store on Bruce B Downs. Until now, I've always gone to Sam Ash or Guitar Center for strings and things. I'm so glad I don't have to waste any more gas money when I can drive around the corner to buy gear for my guitar. Besides the prices at Bigel are very reasonable. The staff are very friendly and never try to upsell me on anything. I recommend Bigel Music, a great place with great people.
