About Ree

Hey there!

No matter what stage you are at in your singing exploration, I can help empower you to let your voice be heard and have FUN in the process. :o)

--- What do I bring to the table, you ask? Well....

As an experienced singer songwriter and current front woman of an indie rock band, I bring a lot of real world vocal and performance experience to my students. Having a diverse musical history ranging from pop, r&b, punk, emo, 80's soft rock, to big band, classical, musical theater, and black gospel, I am able to understand and teach students within the style that they feel most passionate about.

I'm a huge believer in directly applying the techniques taught, so our lessons will consist of scales and understanding of the voice, but will always include song ...

Ree is an amazing instructor for my 7 year old daughter!! She has been working on her breathing techniques, vocal exercises and practicing her favorite song from Frozen! My daughter can't get enough and the lesson time flies by. Ree developed an instant rapport and is excellent at teaching to such a young (easily distracted) girl! Thank you Ree!!

Best Teacher Ever!

Ree has not only taught me how to control my vocals and different practice routines but she has taught me to believe in myself and learn that you can do anything you set your mind to. I never knew my voice could do so many things until she taught me to experiment. She is super nice and down to earth. I know i don't have to feel judged or shy around her. She is patient and very knowledgeable! I definitely recommend her to anyone!

Music Performance · In studio
Karen’s recitals, showcasing 6 to 12 students each time, always thrill
me. Men, women, boys, & girls of all ages and various degrees of
achievement stand before their audience with confidence. They have
practiced, not only the pieces which they play, but showmanship, not
pushy or cocky, but polite and welcoming. They make eye contact and
smile; some invite the crowd to sing along on the choruses. Even the
1st year students exude confidence.

The crowd returns those smiles, along with cheers and clapping. One
can tell that Karen has kindly and persistently shown and encouraged
each student. If any show fear, she does not chide; she accompanies
them in the performance and nods approval as they continue. I watch
that fear subside. They are then met with handshakes and pats on the
back. Next time, they will be even more eager to share the pieces that
they worked on and not expect criticism.

Karen picks a theme and arranges guitar, piano, and voice selections,
intermingled into a program that leaves a person well entertained and
planning to come back next time. I am not related to any of the
participants and have no obligation to be at the recitals. I love the
music, the talent, and the progress that I see and hear. You, too,
will be glad you came.

Guitar · In studio
I am 73 years old and have always wanted to play a guitar, Karen is a member of our church choir and had mentioned that she teaches guitar and piano. I asked if I could take lessons this past June and she agreed to teach me. I am so happy that Karen is teaching me to play a guitar, I did not think I would ever be able to do that but I am learning thanks to her great teaching skills, patience and fantastic knowledge of music. She is very encouraging and teaches on my level of understanding never above my head. I would recommend Karen to anyone that has a desire to learn to play a guitar she is perfect for me!
Jaxon W. Mesa, AZ

About Jaxon

I am a graduate of ASU's guitar program, where I got my Master's Degree in Music- emphasis in Guitar Performance. I have been playing the guitar for 19 years and teaching for 10. My main style is classical, and due to the technical training I have had since I was very young, it has been very easy for me to learn and master other styles such as Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Country, and other styles of guitar. I have a passion for performing and have played hundreds of solo and ensemble concerts. As a classical performer I was the Oregon State champion in their guitar competition for both 2005 and 2006 and won 4th prize at the Sierra Nevada International Classical Guitar Competition 2014. I have played concerts all over the United States as well as in Spain and Mexico. As a ...

It goes without saying that Jaxon is an outstanding teacher - I think that anyone who studies with him would agree. Both Jaxon's verbal instruction and his playing demonstrations are clear and well articulated. His ability to select interesting repertoire seems limitless, for even an advanced student such as myself. He will guide you with techniques and tips while also keeping in consideration your own interests and goals.

I started playing the classical guitar for just fun years ago, and lived in such remote areas that finding a teacher was impossible. As fortune had it, I moved to Tempe and hooked up with Jaxon through TakeLessons.com. He's a great instructor that is patient and won't ever make you feel bad about not having time to practice. He didn't immediately show off his amazing guitar playing ability, but instead directed all his attention at me, the student. His flexible teaching style helped me translate the music knowledge I already had onto the classical guitar. If you follow his methods, you'll be amazed at how fast you improve! I would highly recommend Jaxon to anyone even remotely thinking about playing classical guitar music.

BEST GUITAR TEACHER EVER!!

I have been playing neuvo flamenco for several years and I have had several guitar instructors. None of them come close to Jaxon. Most of my teachers were very good guitar players but not great at teaching - Jaxon is not only a great guitarist but a fantastic teacher. He has the ability to look at every aspect of my guitar playing (technique,posture, composition, etc) and greatly improve it. I highly recommend him to any level of guitarist. He will make you a better guitarist!

He has studied privately with Rob Laytham (Modern Drummer columnist), Joe Leroux (marching band guru), Gary Chaffe (legendary drummer) and many others throughout the years.

Aaron is a great instructor! I've been taking drum lessons with Aaron for over 2 years. He brings enthusiasm and positive energy into each lesson. He is very talented, and his passion for drumming is evident in the way he teaches. Lessons are always fun. Aaron is patient and encouraging. I have a very random work schedule, and Aaron is always willing to accommodate me when scheduling a lesson.

Richard C. Phoenix, AZ

About Richard

I started taking piano lessons at the ripe age of 4, but I quickly found my calling on the guitar. At the age of 20, and with 13 years of playing experience, I graduated from the Roberto-Venn School of Luthiery (guitar building), after building both an acoustic and an electric guitar and receiving repair certification from Fender.
I later completed my Bachelor’s Degree of Music in the field of classical guitar performance, at ASU in 2007.
During this time I expanded to other instruments such as the Ukulele, Banjo, Mandolin, Dulcimer and Bass Guitar.

I am involved with a number of extra musical activities that are available for you. First, I am part of a weekly jam session where my students meet and jam on a rotation with other music students in the phoenix area (drummers, ...

Excellent teacher!

As a beginning guitar player, I could not have been more pleased to have had Richard as my teacher! His knowledge, experience, and passion for guitar (and music in general) is outstanding.
I really found my learning experience with Richard worth while due to the fact that I wasn't simply learning how to play the guitar - I learned about music theory and why guitar is played the way it is.
I could easily take what I learned in Richard's class and apply it to other instruments (aside from the physical aspect).
Once I'm in a position to take lessons again, I will not hesitate to be Richard's student again!

About Zachary

I am a trained jazz pianist but I love many different styles of music. I grew up in the Portland, OR area, did my undergrad studies in Utah, and recently moved to Arizona to begin my masters degree at ASU. I have played in many different types of bands as well as played solo piano professionally. Whatever type of music you enjoy, I hope to be able to help you learn to play it.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your ...

When I went looking for a piano teacher, I was looking for someone who wasn't too rigid so I'd have the flexibility to work on the type of music I enjoy listening to. I mean...who wants to play songs they don't like in the first place?! Zach is a great listener, is very technical, and can work with a student in a way that best suits their goals. He is very pragmatic, and as an adult student this is very important. I've learned a lot more than I expected at this point.
