TakeLessons Honors our February 2011 Teachers of the Week

Each week we recognize a TakeLessons teacher on our Facebook page that has shown outstanding commitment and dedication to our program.  If you missed any of our recent posts, take a minute to learn more about each one of the phenomenal teachers that we honored this month!


Jim P. from Wheaton, IL

Jim has been teaching guitar lessons in the Chicago area for over a year, and in that time has worked with eight students. Jim is proficient in a variety of styles (everything from rock to jazz to blues) which his students absolutely love – check out his profile videos to see him show off his skills! His students have also found that he is very patient and is a pro leading them in the direction they wish to go with their lessons, which keeps them excited about coming back for more.


Dena C. from Horsham, PA

Dena c

Dena teaches music lessons in the Philadelphia area and has worked with over 30 guitar, piano & voice students in the nearly two years she has been with us. In addition to teaching with TakeLessons, she also has experience performing professionally and working as a music therapist.  We love working with Dena because she is committed to providing a First Class Experience for every student we send her way! Her students say they have learned more from her than they ever imagined they would when they began lessons – which is music to our ears!


Jackie R. from Elkridge, MD

Jackie teaches piano and singing lessons at several of our Best Buy stores in Maryland, and has worked with a total of 16 students since the program launched last fall.  Jackie’s students love her because she is so positive and encouraging.  She even calls and emails her students throughout the week to remind them to practice and see what kind of progress they are making between lessons – talk about dedication!  We applaud her for her positivity and commitment to excellence.


Steven B. from Las Vegas, NV

Steven is a piano, bass and guitar teacher in Las Vegas.  He is incredibly proactive, responsible and genuinely committed to providing a stellar experience for each of the students he teaches. His students describe him as charismatic and praise his ability to cater lessons toward their individual needs.  He’s an expert at developing not only their skills, but improving their confidence as well.


Congratulations to all of our outstanding Teachers of the Week for the month of February!
