Each week, TakeLessons students and teachers send us their shout outs. We’re thankful to be a part of this positive and thriving community, so we’d like to share these messages with you. Here are the shout outs we received this week:
Gfire in Austin, TX wrote, “My voice student Jessica, age 10, just got cast in a major production of “The King and I” at Austin’s prestigious Zachary Scott Theatre!! She is part of the children’s ensemble.” Congratulations Jessica!!
Shakeatha D. in Houston, TX wrote, “Arwen and Anissa are making wonderful strides in their vocal lessons. Arwen is six years old and quite the triple threat performer. Anissa has a golden voice. I look forward to continuing to move forward with their progress.” Keep up the good work ladies!
Helen P., who takes violin lessons from Branda T. in Irving, TX wrote, “I just wanted to say that Take Lessons.com is a BRILLIANT idea, connecting people with other people who have the desired skills so we can learn and improve ourselves. I just took some violin lessons and learned some basics which was an awesome experience. And the skills people offer are truly MANY. All the way from Acting to Math, to Computer Science etc. I think in this day and age, we all could use self-improvement. Most of us have the time and money, as the lessons are affordable. I recommend anybody who is reading my message to learn a new skill , especially if they have been dreaming , wishing they could produce in a subject. Example: I wish I knew how to sew. I wish I understood math. I wish I knew more about the computers….I wish I could play the piano. Don’t wish, just do it! : ) Thank you TakeLessons!” Wow, thank you Helen, you’re making us blush! It’s truly our pleasure to connect people who want to learn with great instructors, and the best part is hearing back from happy students and teachers!
Mary Kaye K. in Fairport, NY wrote in to tell us about her experience with her piano teacher Keith S. “My piano teacher Keith rocks!! He creates an awesome environment to learn piano. By that I mean he brings a teaching style that is open not only to further my awareness about piano but I also am developing an emotional connection to the piano that is AWESOME!” Wonderful! Thanks to Keith and all our teachers for all that you do!
Anna T. in Lawrenceville, GA wrote, ” I would like to brag about my voice student Emma. She has been working with me for almost a year and I am so impressed with her improvement. She has learned so much about dynamics and her range has grown tremendously. Several weeks ago, she was at a local restaurant with live music and asked if she could sing with them. The musician said yes and she actually got up and sang. That takes so much nerve and confidence and I am so proud and happy to have such an eager and capable student. I am now encouraging her to audition for some local musical theater shows and for her school choir. I know she can make the cut!” Go Emma!! We’re all rooting for you.
Ryan H. in Newport Beach, CA shared a great article that was recently published about his business in his local paper. Check it out to learn how Ryan is making money writing ukulele jingles for all kinds of clients! Very cool, and congrats on the feature Ryan!
