About Melissa

Hello! Melissa C. here and I can't wait to meet you! Here's a bit about me. I have a BFA in Musical Theater with a minor in piano from the University of Oklahoma. I also became a certified Montessori preschool teacher while living in NYC. I have performed in some great places such as Hershey PA, aboard the MS Maasdam cruise ship, Seoul South Korea, traveling tours and of course, good old NYC! I had the great fortune to be in the original cast of SCHOOLHOUSE ROCK LIVE! on Broadway as well as many other Off Broadway musicals such as the It Girl. Here in Dallas I perform in plays and musicals on a regular basis and I love it!! What gets me excited now is teaching kids, teens and people of all ages to sing or play the piano! I teach in several schools to groups of children and I ...

Melissa has been beyond helpful and informative as an instructor. I've taken 3 lessons so far and I can say that I see a big difference in my singing in such a short amount of time. Before taking lessons, I thought I could only learn how to sing in my "head voice" (ex. Phantom of the Opera) but when I started taking lessons with Melissa, she helped me discover my "chest voice". It really amazed me on how much she can pull out of you!

I can also say that each time I take a lesson with her, I regain a higher amount of self confidence. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better instructor!

Thanks a million Melissa!

Ryan is so great with my 6 yr old son. He is very patient with him, and even though we are having our son learn piano for now, his ultimate goal is to learn the guitar. With Ryan knowing this about our son, he also allows him to strum the guitar every so often so that it reminds him how his piano lessons will ultimately pay off in the end. Ryan is super great with kids! I highly recommend him to anyone.

Ryan is an amazing Piano teacher! My son is 7 and requires a lot of patience and redirection, and Ryan is very good at keeping him on track. We had to switch teachers after the previous one was not a good fit for my son's strong personality. I highly recommend Ryan if your child is easily distracted and strong willed. :)

Thomas S. Richardson, TX

About Thomas

Hello, I'™m Thomas, but most people call me T. I started taking private drum lessons when I was 6 years old from Lucy Flohr. Ms. Lucy was one of the most influential and important people in my development not only as a drummer but in life as well (she's the lady in my profile picture). I met her at 6, and we'™re still friends 30 years later. After Lucy I started lessons with professors at UNT (which in those days was NTSU). My glam band, Skin Deep, was getting major record deal offers, but it was 1992 when grunge took over. So under guidance of our attorney we didn'™t sign any offers. With my high hopes deflated and a musically defeated heart I had to make a change. So instead of going to UNT to study music which I had been being groomed to do, I chose to go to Austin and attend ...

Fantastic Teacher for Kids

My 8 year old son has been taking drum lessons from Thomas for about 4 months and he very much enjoys it. What I really like about the lessons is that Thomas custom designs the next lesson based on how the student is performing in the current lesson. His homework assignments are very detailed which is great because I, as well as my son, know what he should be practicing during the week. I can definitely see a big improvement since my son started and I have no doubts he is getting a solid foundation in drums as well as music theory. Thomas is a super nice guy and very patient which makes him fantastic for kids. My wife is a music educator and she is just as impressed with Thomas as I am. We highly recommend him.

Awesome teacher

I have been taking lessons from Thomas for about 4 months. I knew nothing about drums when I started. I have learned so much so fast. T's teaching style is flexible and he is able to adjust the way he explains things so I understand. I have so many light bulb moments in the lesson and when I am practicing at home. He is professional and a lot of fun. My drum lesson is one of the highlights of my week. T is not only teaching me how to play the drums, but how to not be so hard on myself. We laugh a lot and I always leave feeling great about my lesson and that I have accomplished something. I am an adult student and would recommend him for any adult or kid. I can see how young people would relate to him as well. He is laid back, but very professional and knows his stuff. I have recently moved 30 minutes away from him, but will continue to make the drive because he is awesome and worth the drive.

TakeLessons has exceeded my initial expectations, not only the program itself, but the expectations I held for myself.

Love TakeLessons. Love my teacher. Love his teaching method which is relatively laid back on the surface, but the dudes mind is expansive! He hits you curve balls and knows how to relate to his student(s) individually, so that it feels like this is YOUR lesson that he has crafted specifically for YOU. His subtility in regards to a method/ideology is massive! Just when I think , "Oh, ok..." then I'm like "OH! OK!" Constant light bulbs flickering, constant movement and stability in his methods. It's like a friend teaching you professionally to a point, and yet it's clear that he's the teacher, you're the student. After each session I feel like I can do this, and that it's not just a pipe dream and that this teacher enjoys what he does and the sessions we have and wants to see me excel and that in & of itself is not only motivational but inspiring.

Gaily has helped me so much

Gaily is an amazing violinist. She is very flexible and tells me what I need to know in order to improve. When I get a little bored with my practice drills, we work on fun music that I love to play.

I have noticed a huge difference in my playing since taking lessons from her. I play more in tune and with more confidence. You should definitely take lessons from Gaily.

About Dusty

I teaches ages three and up. If your looking for quality violin lessons by a local violin teacher in Mckinney. My curriculum is based on the Suzuki method which is a wonderful method for learning music. It is just like learning a new language through instant immersion. I am a registered violin teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I offer both group and private lessons for ages three through adult. Most lessons are done in my home studio but I do offer lessons in your own home depending on the area. Benefits to learning music with me. My students get to participate in recitals at least twice a year. I offer weekly private and group lessons, important for encouragement and practice. Training in music appreciation and theory is intuitively absorbed in every lesson.
