I've been taking lessons from Rick for over 1.5 years and have shown steady improvement thanks to him. He is always prepared and gears the lessons toward the style of music I enjoy playing. He is patient and keeps the lessons at a comfortable pace while also making sure to push me to progress my abilities.

I'm a mid 40's guy who's wanted to play guitar since I was a kid. After a failed attempt in my teens, I hadn't revisited it (unless air-guitar counts) until this year. Fortunately for me, through Take Lessons, I found Rick. He is so very patient, friendly and flexible. The one thing I most enjoy about our lessons is that it's like visiting with a friend for an hour each week - whether we talk about music theory, new guitars or just about our lives, he always is engaged and accessible.

I can't say enough about Rick, he is a very knowledgeable musician, he genuinely cares that you reach your goal and is a really, really pleasant person. If your dream is just to play some of your favorite songs, or to go on to be a professional musician - Rick is definitely who I would recommend.

First rate instructor - fabulous

I'm a 50 something music student who loves guitar but has no particular talent. Rick has been patient with me and his lessons have improved my playing after a short time. I'm playing songs that I would otherwise never attempt.

Cristina is knowledgeable, patient and a great teacher for me. I'm really excited about the progress I've made in just 3 short weeks and I know I want to go as far as I can in drumming.

I'm normally self-conscious and nervous about learning new skills, esp if I feel like I'm not able to be GREAT at it right away. But Cristina put me at ease right away and has helped me to be laid back and patient. That's a big deal.

She's an awesome drummer too.

I had always heard that finding the right piano teacher for your child was important, I never really understood that until my son began working with Mr. Dustin S. for piano lessons. My 10 yr. old had other piano teachers in the past that really didn't seem to listen or take time to understand our son's needs which in effect, seemed to cause my son to steadily lose interest in wanting to learn piano. Mr. Dustin S. took the time to listen to our past experiences, taking notes (literally) on what were the past concerns and future goals. He thoughtfully planned and adjusted his lessons to keep my son interested in practicing piano as well as in learning to read music. Mr. Dustin S. is very knowledgeable, and truly takes time to know his students.

My daughter (SARA) who is 5 just finished her fourth lesson with Dustin. Dustin is very patient with her and she looks forward to her next lesson before we even leave his studio. I highly recommend Dustin for any student that wants to learn piano. "My daughter is truly blessed to have such an energetic, talented, and passionate instructor." Out of all the Piano Instructors available, I know we made the "RIGHT CHOICE." Thank you, Dustin for all you do!

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.
