Justin is a great piano teacher

My 6 year old has piano lessons with Justin. He enjoys his lessons and I'm a proud mother when I listen to him play. My son is a little talker but Justin is always kind, very patient, and uses relatable examples for him to better understand. He encourages which motivates my son to want to practice more. He is also very polite, never without a friendly smile, and without a doubt loves teaching music. I hope Justin continues teaching music by the time my now 1 year old is old enough to take lessons. My family truly appreciates him.

I've been working with Raymond for only 2 months now. He has a very repetitive but very sensible, understandable, casual and likeably method of teaching. As a beginner, I've made tremendous advancements in my guitar etiquette and playing. He is wonderful to work with.

Remi has been a fantastic and dependable teacher. He has been providing piano lessons for my daughter and guitar lessons for my son. Both are in tae kwon do which equates to frequent reschedules and cancellations. Remi has always been accommodating and willing to work with us to make this work. As a teacher he exhibits the patience of a saint and is willing to go through lessons repeatedly and from different angles to ensure that the student 'gets it'. I have been, and continue to be, very satisfied with Remi.

As a new student of piano and music in general, I was hesitant to start lessons at my age but, Remi is very kind, patient and knowledgeable on the subject. He has made my training a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend him to any new students like myself. I look forward to more lessons to come.

About James

I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and running quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time.

I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my ...

If you like guitar, you'll like James.

I have had about a dozen lessons so far with James, starting out as a complete beginner, with knowledge of only a few chords. In this short time, I have learned a great deal of theory, practice strategy, playing full songs, and even singing along with a few in time. James has been very hospitable and patient, and I recommend him to anyone who loves the guitar, regardless of skill!

*** Lesson Details ***
Everyone has the ability to learn. Do not let someone tell you different. It is either the wrong
teacher or wrong method for you if you are having difficulty. It is never the student.
I use many combined methods to fit the individual student accoring to their skill level, desires and overcoming any difficulties. I have two recitals a year and video tape them so the student can see and hear their progress.

In addition to piano I also teach keyboard, organ, improve, stand up comedy, recording, and

Logan D. Jacksonville, FL

Guitar is my first instrument and I have been playing it for about 8 years. I can get anyone started and have them playing in a month. The lesson regime will usually partake in technique such as becoming fluid and comfortable with chord changes and scales and repertoire where the student will learn the music he/she desires to learn. I believe in giving students what they need to become the best they can be. I don't teach based on a rigid curriculum. I teach based off where the student is as a musician and help the student achieve the goals he/she is reaching for.

About Logan

I have been teaching and helping people on this musical journey since January 2011. it pretty much started out with me just helping friends become better artists and better people. I enjoyed helping so much that I thought it would be a good idea to share the knowledge even more so I branched out through takelessons.com. I can teach beginner and intermediate levels in guitar, piano, and music theory.
