Each week, TakeLessons students and teachers send us their shout outs. We’re thankful to be a part of this positive and thriving community, so we’d like to share these messages with you. Here are the shout outs we received this week:

Amy Z. in Avondale, AZ wrote, “On Friday, June 6th I hosted my first private studio recital since working with TakeLessons. 6 piano, 1 flute, and 1 alto saxophone student performed for an audience of 50 family and friends on the stage at the elementary school where I teach during the school year. All of the students played very well and acted so professionally! I am very proud of each and every one of them. I am looking forward to hosting more recitals in the future.” Pictured above is Amy’s student Josh at the piano giving a big thumbs up! Thanks Amy, for putting this recital together!

    I am 61 years young and sang in public (at a camp talent show) for the first time in 44 years!…and this time I felt good about it. The only reason that I was able to do this is, is because I have been taking singing lesson on TakeLessons with the BEST teacher, Mr Farobag Cooper. I believe it has only been 2 months of lessons ,but Mr Cooper is so patient that he made me feel very comfortable with my singing. He takes it slowly and I never feel rushed at learning.
    I am learning little by little how to control my voice. I have started to understand the musical notes and some how can play a few notes on my piano. Presently, I have a crazy schedule and I feel the only way I kept up with taking lessons was due to Mr Cooper being flexible. If anyone out there is thinking about taking singing lessons ask for Farobag Cooper. Aside from being a patient singing instructor, he is very smart and I believe he teaches various subjects, and is probably #1 in any lesson.I was very lucky to be matched with him and continue to take classes.
