Pablo F. San Jose, CA

Viola is my primary instrument. I have played for approximately 15 years, and I've played in all styles of music, in orchestras, quartets, trios, pits, and everything in between. I've been teaching others how to play for 5 years now.

I can take a student from their first steps on a stringed instrument to preparing for college and professional auditions.

Chris taught one lesson to my son, then he cancelled the following week's lesson and never returned numerous phone calls, emails, and text messages. He didn't respond, then the following week at our next scheduled instruction he called me 30 mins before the lesson asking if he could move the date.

Needless to say, it was very unprofessional of him, and we intended to end our relationship with him as my son's instructor.

The thing got worse when he proceeded to schedule my son for a weekly reoccurring lesson for the next year. I've had to manually cancel each lesson, at least until Jan 2015.

I would strongly warn you against signing up with Chris if you expect an instructor who is reliable and responsive to your communications. I'm sorry it didn't work out, but the other problem is that this was my son's first experience to music lessons, so it was a bad first experience.

We're giving 3 out of 5 stars since that seems fair. With regards to the lessons themselves, Chris certainly met our expectations with our son's violin lessons. However, with regards to communications and scheduling, it could have been much better. More than once my son was waiting on Skype after receiving the "You have upcoming lessons" email from TakeLessons. Chris needs to learn how to cancel the lessons ahead of time. He rarely responded to emails (was trying to get him to stop showing our email openly to all his other students, really needs to learn how to use BCC). He never returned phone calls. Due to the canceled lessons, our TakeLesson pay date came prematurely, and since I waited until our son's paid lessons were completed before paying for new ones, we got dropped from the schedule and lost our time slot. Too many frustrations led to finding a new teacher.

Great teacher, especially for kids!

My two boys -- ages 8 & 10 -- needed just the right teacher to begin learning the piano, and I'm so glad we started with Chris. He related to them right away, just sat down and started working with them and within seconds they were playing. He interwove fun with learning seamlessly. The boys looked forward to their lessons with him. Thank you, Chris!!

Daphne is an amazing teacher! She comes to my home, is always on time, and we have very productive lessons that inspire me to practice the entire week in between lessons. She is supportive, encouraging, positive, and a pleasure to be around.

We've only had a few lessons but Drew is enjoying it and likes Daphne a lot. I will have a better idea of how much Drew is progressing in the coming months.
