Sanford is an exceptional instructor and person

My son stared lessons with Sanford about 7 months ago. He is doing a fantastic job with Sanford as his instructor. Sanford is kind, extremely patient, knowledgable and supportive. He gives my son a little push when he needs with positive words of encouragement. What I found to be wonderful was the way he was able to start teaching all aspects of playing music simultaneously, reading, writing, and playing music. The excitement my son feels every time he is able to play a piece of music is priceless. We have Sanford to thank for that.

Wonderful!

Samantha D. is wonderful. My kids play so well for only 1 year'sworth of lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone! I am blownaway by the music that comes out of the Piano from a 7 and 11 year old.My 11 year old signed up for her first music competition at school. Ifyou told me one year ago I would have girls playing a piano, I would notbelieve you. I truly thought they would quit after a couple of months.Not the case. They are musically talented and still love it. Thanks toSamantha D! They are now thriving in the in-school music program.Thank you, TakeLessons, for filtering out the best teachers. When achild has a small window of interest, you have to grab it the rightway...the wrong teacher would not have given me these results.

Highly Recommend her!

My daughters (10, & 6) have only had three lessons with Samantha! They love it. Her nature is kind and welcoming. She can tell how much they can handle so doesn't overwhelm them with too much theory or pieces to play. She strikes a nice balance. My 10 year old started composing her own song when she became bord with the beginner book! Samantha has added to this excitement and changed her teaching style to match my daughters learning style. My daughter was beaming! Samantha has taught her how to take the next pieces of theory and add it to her song. She also ordered music my daughter enjoys like Selena Gomez. My 6 year old is excited every week and doesn't want to be late. My husband and I thought this would be just another thing to start and quit. So far they are going strong!

Excellent Teaching Skills

The best vocal coach ever! Miss Jackie makes the students feel as though there is nothing that they cannot do and helps them achieve it. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of her field, goes above and beyond. She is very patient with the students and never lets them feel silly. I highly recommend her for vocal lessons.
Nicholas U. Allentown, PA

About Nicholas

I am a second generation music teacher for piano and violin. I have been teaching for over 15 years as well as playing both instruments for about 30 years. I have an Associates in Music. Making lessons both fun and educational is what make my students successful in their instruments. My lessons are custom made to how the student learns, not cookie-cut. We also do bi-annual recitals in October and April to showcase the students' accomplishments. *** Lesson Details *** My lessons are both fun and educational at the same time. I compromise with my students by having us each pick a piece to play on top of the usual learning pieces. My students play anything from Katy Perry to 80s music and rock ballads and in between. I use John Thompson and Fingerpower as well as a notespeller for

Joe is awesome

I came to Joe with some basic knowledge and skills on bass, he recognized this and built on it very quickly. I feel my skilled has tripled in the short time I've taken lessons with Joe. Our lessons are never boring an he does so much more than tell me to play a set of notes, he challenges me to make my own way and improvise. I would definitely recommend him for anyone wanting to learn an instrument.

Joe taught both my kids and made it a wonderful experience

We wanted our son and daughter to have an appreciation of music and at the same time enjoy the experience. Joe was the perfect solution. He has the ability to reach out to kids and make them feel comfortable. He encouraged them to select the music they enjoyed and then molded his lessons around their interest. We didn't really need to push them to practice, they actually enjoyed it. This had not been the case at other organizations, where it was always a chore to have them practice.
Mason B. Macungie, PA

About Mason

My Name is Mason and I've been teaching music to students of all ages since I was 14. I originally taught at a facility near Reading, PA called Zeswitz. While I worked there I studied along side other seasoned professionals in genres like jazz, heavy metal and folk styles. Currently I run a small business. My experience, since I was 8 years old, was built on private lessons from select very accomplished and certified guitarists. I also played in several profitable bands including jazz duos, classic rock trios and currently a blues duo with my lovely wife. I'm also always building and helping local bands. I'm very pro learning and never satisfied with my playing enough to say I don't have to practice any longer. I share to same attitude towards my students. There are always new grounds to ...

Music Performance
I've been a student for a few years now. As a producer, I lack the ability to perform. Mason goes beyond traditional curriculum and helps me use the abilities I already have to bring to the stage. I am pretty skilled in my musical career, but now I'm becoming polished. Thank you! Absolutely recommend!
