Every week, TakeLessons students and teachers send us their shout outs. We love to share how our teachers and students congratulate each other on their achievements and we’re so thankful to be a part of such a positive and thriving community. Check out all our shout outs for this week:
Stacey S. in Covington, KY wrote, “My student Abi M. will be playing Maria in her high school’s production of The Sound of Music! My student Eli is out in LA recording his second album with Walk the Moon. And my beginning piano student Presley is confidently reading music!” Keep up the good work Abi, Eli, and Presley!

Bryan E. in Oakley, CA wrote, “I wanted to congratulate Tolu on having a breakthrough lesson getting through her vocal bridges on the E vowel! After four lessons of working hard she was able to blend breath and vowel modification for beautiful resonance throughout her range! Well done Tolu. Sadly she has come to the end of our lesson time together, but she has made significant progress in just the short two and a half months of working together. Great job, and best of luck Tolu! I wanted to say congrats to Brianna for her successful memorization of the her music notes flash cards! I made the deal that if she could answer all the cards correctly I would treat her to ice cream…looks like ice cream is in the future! I also wanted to congratulate Jonathan, he was made the same deal, and today passed all the treble cleff notecards, half way there bud! Keep up the hard work, both of you, and I am proud of you both!” Congratulations, and enjoy your rewards!
