About Peter
Whether piano, voice, songwriting/composition, music theory or music production, I bring all that I have learned and developed as a musician to the lesson in the interest of the student’s growth.

Whether we work in classical, jazz, or pop, We focus on what will directly fit your individual goals. We can cover the full spectrum of technique, theory, ear training, sight-reading, and performance. What emerges over time is tailor-made program suited to your needs and goals.

A little bit about my background: I have studied with over 12 music professors, both in the classroom and individually for 6 years at Saddleback Community College in Orange County. I’ve studied a number of styles while composing for and performing in various small ensembles, including:  world music, classical, pop, jazz, and musical theatre. I continue teach, produ
ce and compose music for myself and other artists as well.

I look forward to getting to know you!

My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

I have been working with Peter for a little over a year and although I'm moving away, I will be continuing my sessions with him over video. Over the past year, I've had the most incredible mentoring experience with Peter and would highly recommend him to students of all ages. I used to play piano as a kid and quit when I was in middle school, and Peter has helped me regain, maintain and build on my skills. He takes measures to keep me accountable in my practice and also nurtures and encourages me creatively -- his experience as a composer comes in handy and we have dope jam sessions. In addition to his musical teaching practice, Peter is also training in somatic and trauma healing modalities that infuse his work with students with care and attunement. I know some parents who work with him keep him around their kids as a life coach and buddy as well as a music teacher. He's the best and I will miss seeing him every week in person!

Peter has taught my 11yr old son so much! The Focus is on the fundamentals but he is flexible and fun which support creative learning and keeps my son engaged! A great instructor that is very reasonably priced and it is convenient to have such a great teacher come to the house, many others we looked do not offer that kind of service.

James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

About Trevor
My name is Trevor Murphy. I am 24 years old and have been teaching music lessons for 4 years. I completed my Bachelor’s of Music – Jazz Studies from San Jose State University in 2017. I have been a member of the International Society of Bassists since 2012 and achieved my Eagle Scout Rank in 2011. I have 14 years of performance experience and specialize in Double Bass Performance and Music Theory as my main focuses. I also offer lessons in guitar, piano, trumpet, electric bass, and upright bass. I enjoy working with motivated students of all ages and backgrounds who are passionate about music and want to develop a great work ethic and sense of self-discipline, while having fun in what they do. It’s more than just music – It’s about combining what’s in your heart with what’s on the page and truly expressing the music. Additionally, I will
go into detail on the secrets of overcoming fear and performance anxiety when playing for audiences. The inner game of music is about overcoming self-limiting beliefs. Become brilliant. Become fearless. Become the most confident version of yourself through music. Learn a higher level of musicianship and book with me today!

· Upright Bass · In studio
I was looking for an upright bass teacher and found Trevor on Takelessons.
After we got through the maze of takelessons website ( a real issue that needs to be resolved. How can you know if a teacher is right for you without communicating with them Takelessons?) we were able to discuss what my interests and goals were. Trevor understood I was new to double bass, but had some experience on electric bass and was able to put together a lesson plan that helped me progress rapidly while still keeping the lessons interesting and fun.
I asked Trevor to help me with bowing, classical and Jazz improv. Each lesson contained time for each and I was sent home with practice pieces on each of the disciplines. My zeal for learning "everything" may have been a bit unrealistic, but Trevor made sure to spend time with me on each area and worked on correcting anything he saw come up that was not correct form.
Trevor has an easy going style, but shows a great love for music.

About brittany
Hello all!
I am a musician and lover of all things creative. I have been singing professionally, myself, for over ten years. Some of my greatest training came from singing in a capella quartet that has been awarded international championships. I've studied all kinds of music from classical to pop, jazz, country and Broadway. I started teaching lessons in collage and now work full time as a music teacher. I have also studied yoga, movement, flexibility and strength for many years on my own. And for those who are interested in calligraphy or knitting, I have been known to be a constant crafter. Mostly, I love teaching for the light bulb moment when somebody "gets" something they didn't before. I love working with people of all ages and levels!

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Ellen
I was born and raised in Norway, where we had grocery stores with farm-grown vegetables and animals that were free-ranged, rather than caged. When I moved to the United States, I was so amazed at the variety of foods in the supermarkets, that I chose to buy and eat everything!

By March 2009, I was the heaviest I had ever been. I was 44 years old and my joints were stiff and hurting, I was considered obese, had thyroid issues, was diabetic, and I had been diagnosed with breast cancer.

I started looking for solutions that would address the root causes of my illnesses and decided to study nutrition. Within a year, I had lost 56 lbs., went from a size 16 to a size 2, and all of my health problems disappeared.

Healing myself inspired me to help other people get to the root of their problems and heal it naturally, to allow support
to all other improper-functioning parts of the body.

My purpose is to help you detox through the five channels of elimination to restore nutritional deficiencies, so you can heal from chronic and mystery illness.

My classes and programs will provide you with the proper information, a variety of laboratory testing based on your needs, as well as all the steps and tools you need to move forward so, you can heal and get your health back! I also specialize in helping you to achieve permanent safe and effective weight loss.

I look forward to helping you heal, naturally!

My work is based on the teachings of Edgar Cayce and "Medical Medium" Anthony William.

I also want to to acknowledge her health coaching in addition to the excellent weight loss knowledge that Ellen has. She is always on top of her game in her industry and constantly furthering her knowledge. I have received her advice through the years and everything she has taught me has been beneficial and right on. Her excellent listening skills, simple instructions and "no diet" mantra is what works to develop your right eating style. I highly recommend contacting Ellen for your health.
