Cory is an awesome teacher!

I've studied with Cory for 4 years now, and I just want everyone to know what a great teacher Cory is. I've not only developed immensely in my musical skill, but I've also noticed when I'm working with other musicians that my studies have really set me apart from my peers. Cory has an awesome recording studio with all the professional stuff you'd come to expect in a major studio, Protools HD, Logic 9, a great Mic Pre & Compressor, along with an awesome tube Mic for recording great vocals. I've known Cory for 14 years now, and he's a lot of fun to work with and learn from. I've also been to many of his gigs, and I can assure you he's an awesome performer. Glenn

Guitar
Cory taught my daughter to play guitar when no one else could!

Cory M is a multi-talented sweetheart of a man.
He’s been a great guitar teacher for my daughter, who has gained knowledge of sight reading and classical guitar while learning to play the folk/indie/classic rock she most enjoys. It’s to Cory’s credit that she’s stuck with these lessons through all the other activities she’s taken up and abandoned.
Cory is also a highly skilled performer and recording artist. I’ve enjoyed listening and dancing to his band playing old favorites and original compositions. He creates CDs of his music and records other artists in an impressive-looking home recording studio – and on top of all this, he’s a great cook and a kind-hearted, generous neighbor. We’re fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

Piano
I'm a big fan!

I'm a professional musician, and I entrusted both of my sons to Cory M, and have also recommended him widely to my friends......he gave both of my boys a solid foundation in piano, and when my second one chose guitar, the transition was very smooth. They each started when they were 6 - Cory is great with kids that age, and by the time they started in the school bands, they were well prepared to dive right in.
Cory is an actively working musician and composer, which makes it fun for the kids, and gives them a view on how the material they are studying functions in the real world. He also maintains a high quality home studio, opening up the opportunity for students to gain experience in that realm.
I'm a big fan.

Edwin is extremely patient and good natured. His knowledge of music and his ear for chords is amazing. I am a beginner and within a few lessons I am playing full songs from major bands. I couldn't be happier with Edwin and will be working with him for a long time.

I've always wanted to learn guitar and have had one lying around for awhile. I've been on youtube to try to learn some basics, but it was great to finally get some real feedback and pointers. Edwin was very patient and helped me get some basic rhythms down. Now I've got some specific stuff to work on til my next lesson.

The live 1-on-1 lessons with awesome TakeLessons teachers are a must if you are serious about learning properly!

About Joseph

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to the school€™s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band ...

Drum · In home
Ben got me launched in rock and jazz drumming. I'd never played drum set before, and he had only six weeks to help me prepare for my 8th grade jazz band audition. He cut right to what I needed to know and gave me confidence to perform well in the audition. Twelve years later I'm drumming lots and still relying on fundamentals I learned from Ben. His talent is undeniable and he has benefited from outstanding music instruction himself. I remember him as a teacher who has high standards and will urge you to get better, yet he's patient and makes lessons a lot of fun.
