My son has been learning to play piano at Redmond Bach 2 Rock. He loves the lessons, and comes home able to do more than he could the day before, so he's definitely learning as well. Music is so important in a child's development, and we're happy we found such a welcoming place to get my son started off on the right foot.
I'll speak to the specific classes my son is taking - he's been in piano lessons with Barney for years now and they've been a blast. My son (7 years old) has a lot of fun in class and has been learning/growing tremendously the past six months once we went back to in person lessons. He looks forward to Piano classes every week. :)
The school has a standardized well-articulated curriculum. The teachers are polite but open about difficulties my children might be having with some of the material, which helps me help my children to overcome them.
All of the instructors have been engaging and competent. My daughter is very impressed with the teacher's "vibe" for electric guitar. She practices every night to be able to impress her instructor and looks forward to her lessons every week. Bach to Rock is definitely opening up the world of music to my daughter.
The staff is friendly. My daughter enjoys going, is having fun, and feels that people are supportive of her progress, and she's learning.
Small items for improvement: Hard to find MyB2R link on main website. I found the website separately and logged in and then scoured the main site to find it. I did find it, but the link should be more prominent.
Also, we had a rough start missing the first lesson since I thought my time was 30 minutes later. I was heading to the car to go to the lesson when I received a call that I was late. Although, in the end, the owner was understanding and allowed me to reschedule at no extra cost, my initial interaction with staff made me feel like the establishment is very rigid and there are no exceptions. I think that there should be a built in 1 time where families are allowed mistakes due to traffic issues, medical issues, or other life situations. While this may exist, it wasn't stated and would relieve anxiety if this was understood.
Again, overall I think the place is great and we've had a very positive experience since our first issue. I will continue to use the business until my daughter changes interest or changes course. Thanks!
