About Will

At the age of 12, I picked up the bass guitar to start a rock band with my neighborhood friends. After years of private lessons, I got my Associate's degree in music and shipped up to Boston to earn my BA at the prestigious Berklee College of Music. During my time in college I joined a number of bands, had my music played on the radio for the first time, and even founded my own mobile recording company. I found that my best teachers were the ones who were willing to learn themselves, so I decided that my own quest for education would never be finished. *** Lesson Details *** I want to get you playing music immediately! Beginning students are much more likely to stick with an instrument if they see immediate results, so I don't waste time in the first lesson forcing you to learn lots ...

From Learning To Doing

When I started taking lessons I was very much a beginner. Will helped me out. We started at the bottom working some scales and learning the fundamentals. Once I figured out some of the basics we got to do what I wanted to do, play!!! After just a few months I became comfortable playing in public and now I gig all the time. All of this thanks to Will. Thanks Will!

The boost I needed to get playing again

Will's lessons didn't only help improve my bass playing, but also gave me the confidence I needed before recording in the studio. He was patient and didn't mind working with me until I had my skills down. His lessons are more practical than others I have had with a more "classical" feel. I would recommend Will's lessons to anyone who is looking to improve their bass playing or have some fun rocking out to great tunes.

About Erica

Hi! My name is Erica, and I am a private lesson teacher, composer, arranger, and pianist currently living, writing, performing, and teaching in North Jersey. I believe that by having such a versatile musical background, I will be able to understand different needs and interests you may have and help you begin or continue your musical journey and reach your goals. I currently teach 30 private piano and composition students in North New Jersey, and I am consistently inspired by all the progress all my students have made! My students have played classical pieces in recitals, played in jazz combos with other student musicians, written music that was performed by professional ensembles, learned how to play ragtime, and more. No two students have gone down the same path, because the ...

She gets it!

Quick background: I was classically trained for about 7 years in piano, starting when I was around 9. My teacher was great, and did an awesome job of driving the fundamentals.

Fast forward to more recently: Having not taken lessons for 15+ years (I had continued playing and learning...just without a teacher), I decided I wanted to pursue a bit more jazz and theory. I went back to my childhood teacher, who very honestly told me that jazz was not his forte. I took a few months of lessons with him, which helped to get me back into the swing of things, but I was really interested in jazz.

I found Erica on takelessons, and she was truly amazing! If you're looking for a teacher who is always "by the book", this isn't her. While I'm sure she can do that, she thrives in allowing you to be a musician. Her understanding of complex time signatures is great, and she really helps to chunk things up into manageable pieces.

Some of her greatest strengths, from the student's perspective, are her patience, friendly demeanor, STRONG understanding of music theory (she's a composer at heart, and I've no doubt that she's great at it), broad knowledge of music, from composers to artists, and her ability to help you learn to improvise. If I wanted to play different notes than what was on the page, within reason of course, that was ok. Having come from a classical background, that was quite refreshing.

I was always able to look forward to learning something new at my lessons; even her book recommendations have been excellent.

I'd say, because of her patience, she's a perfect teacher for adults and children alike. You really can't go wrong with Erica!

So far with Barbee has been a fantastic experience, she is a really talented and patient teacher and performer, she is humorous which is good, you don't want a teacher that is serious all the time, although she can get serious when needed.
A really good person to work with, in general great! I truly love her teaching and her dedication to students.

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

Yuki is the best sax teacher that I could imagine lives on this planet (by the way I’m one of his students.) It’s been maybe 5-6 weeks and I know him like my neighbor! Every time I see him I get better and better! Besides that he’s one of the nicest people I have ever met. I’m positive all of his other students are 100% satisfied with his lessons and will stay with him until they are better than he is. In the end he is a very positive sax teacher and his main priority is to satisfy your child with their skills and performance. I know that I’m satisfied and hopefully you will be too!

Yuki is a wonderful and patient teacher. I am sixty years old and have always wanted to learn the sax. He always takes time to explain what we are trying to accomplish, even with an " old guy " like myself. I highly recommend Yuki to anyone who wishes to learn the sax in a competent and relaxed manner
