About Shakeatha

I have sung for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college.

I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital; Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; ...

Shakeatha is great! After just a few lessons, I felt like I was improving. I like that she stresses proper vocal technique and breathing as well, which are very important. She's also highly versatile, so no matter what style you want to learn, whether its pop, jazz, soul, or classical, she's got you covered. She really encouraged and challenged me, reawakening my love for singing and music overall. I highly recommend her!

Debbie "Debra" T. Houston, TX

About Debbie (Debra)

Having been a public school teacher, as well as a private and group piano instructor, I've observed how differently students "digest" information, and piano lessons are a great way to make use of different learning styles. I emphasize knowing HOW to practice before you leave so you'll be successful at home, and you are welcome to contact me with problems during the week so you don't lose a week in progressing with your lessons. I've had students send a video of a tricky section to ask for alternative fingering, and photos to clarify how they are reading something!! I also perform with an orchestra and want to feel proficient among my peers, so I really know how it feels to make a mistake in front of everyone. I am here to help you feel proud of your ...

Debbie T., my piano teacher

I am a senior who decided to learn the piano. This is something I have wanted to do all my life. I began with a private teacher and studied with him for 6 months. Although he was a very good instructor something was missing. I searched the internet and found TakeLessons.com and found Debra's profile. I have been studying under Debbie for one year as of January, 2014. She is the absolute BEST! I have only praise for her. She is patient, kind, funny, very very knowledgable, She is professional, energetic, and flexible. I just can't say enough good things about her. I see our relationship lasting for many years to come! I just love her!

Best piano teacher I have ever had!

I started taking lesson this year and I love it! This is my third time trying different places and teachers, I am very picky and have high expectations. I find Debbie's knowledge about music and piano amazing! She is the most patient teacher I have ever had, I have a hectic schedule and no matter how often I have to change lessons or come unprepared she always is understanding and encouraging. And her personality is just so warming, she is full of praise even at times when I know I don't deserve it, yet she strives to push you forward, if one way doesn't work for you she will find a way that you are comfortable with so you continue to progress. She knows just about EVERYTHING there is to know about reading and playing music, even the Italian versions. I love the personal feel of being at her home studio, and would recommend her to friends and family, I look forward to many more lessons in the future !

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13.
I've taught personalized lessons for over 5 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've ...

Amazing teacher

Andrew is really an amazing guitarist and teacher. As a female, at first I was nervous to show up at a "random" male teacher's door, but he made me feel really comfortable right away. I feel I'm really progressing with him, more than I could ever have done on my own.
Thanks Andrew!

About Leni

BA in Music, composition and conducting from Hunter College (City University of New York)
Diploma from the Conservatoire de Fontainebleau, France
Studied with Louise Talma, Jacques Louis Monod, Nadia Boulanger

Lessons are about learning to make music, not endless scales and arpeggios which so often lead to pain and injury. Sight reading, theory and interpretation are strong elements from the beginning.

An overwhelming percentage of young, enthusiastic and talented children are discouraged early and give up the piano because they do not enjoy their lessons. Music is one of life's great joys. It should be fun. For the intermediate, and even the advanced, student, it is critical that much more attention be paid to the musicality of the playing and the understanding of the ...

An Amazing Teacher and Musician

I have had Leni as a teacher, and a friend, for several years. I am amazed at how far I have come, and I feel that the technique and the theory behind the methods he teaches are incredible and imperative to the progress I have made, both on the piano and in other areas of music. The atmosphere that he creates is a welcoming and stimulating learning environment. The Taubman technique that he teaches is understandable, helpful, and it is the most successful way to avoid long-term injury to the hands and wrists. I am incredibly grateful to him for his dedication and passion for his work and his students.

Great teacher

I've been taking lessons with Leni B for over a year and I'm loving it. The lessons are fun and I'm learning alot about how to play well. I'm learning much faster than I did with my other teachers and my hands don't get sore from practicing. No lame exercises. It was about the music from the start, and now I can play really well.

Thank you for viewing my profile for guitar instruction.
I also can teach and help with composition and "score to picture".

The band I currently record guitars for {A Bad Think} has been nominated by the Grammys for Best Rock Album of the year.

I was born in New Jersey, and soon after moved to St. Louis where I began to play guitar at age 6 at the Mel Bay Studios from Mell Bay himself, and later from the person who taught him to play. After attending music school for a while, I moved to a recording studio in Houston Texas, where I was a session player and learned the art of recording and producing from major label producers and engineers. During this time I recorded on albums for Freddy Fender as well as other pop ...

I just had my first lesson with Ralph and I must say, it was amazing! I am extremely excited about playing again and reaching goals I had set for myself years ago, but never reached.
His lesson planning around my skill level was very comprehensive to my needs. He listened closely to my personal goals and tailored specifically the lesson to meet and exceed my goals.
I highly recommend Ralph to all levels of guitarists from beginning to semi pro!!!!!!
Thank you Ralph!

Simply the best guitar teacher I have ever had.

I have had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons from Ralph.

I have never learned so much as fast as I have with Ralph. His teaching style is thorough but he has the unique ability to always make it fun and interesting!

With his rich background and experience in the industry, I just don't know how one could find a more versatile, capable, and passionate teacher. Simply the best guitar teacher I have ever had.
