Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

Easy to sign up and Great customer service

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.

I have a tough time learning but Miss Jess explained everything in a way where I was able to actually understand. She is an INCREDIBLE instructor and I'm so blessed to be able to learn piano with her. She's one of the most patient teachers I've ever worked with and didn't make me feel like I was unteachable like people have in the past. If you're even debating yes or no, just pull the trigger and go learn with her!! I'm so thankful

Miss Jess taught our kids for 2 years, and we loved her lessons! She moved away from where we live and we miss her dearly. She is a wonderful teacher and we highly recommend her!

My goal is to promote musical appreciation for students of all abilities and ages and to offer a high standard of comprehensive music instruction and public performance. Careful attention is placed on each violin and viola student to ensure a custom lesson plan. All aspects of music will be taught, including reading, rhythm, sound development and violin or viola repertoire so that the student becomes a complete musician wherever their musical interests should lie.

Meghan is an awesome teacher! I have struggled for years with my bow hold and general bow technique and she was instrumental :) in helping me fix my bow issues. If you're struggling with technique, I would highly recommend her. She will explain things in a way that allows you to be aware of the problems and she'll give you the tools to fix them! Thank you Meghan!

I bring a passionate approach to help vocalists develop confidence in their performance!

I’m a conservatory trained musician, with years of professional experience. I enjoy the balance of my work as a singer/songwriter, performer, producer and vocal coach.

As your instructor, I will help you build a solid foundation in vocal technique through breathing and vocal exercises suited to your style and skill while tailoring to your personal goals. We will then apply the technique to songs.

For those interested in performance, I can help coach your performance skills to help you feel confident, about singing on stage!

For those interested in songwriting, my lesson plan can include learning foundations in songwriting to help you create your own original songs and melodies.

"First off, I am a complete beginner. I have never played an acoustic guitar and only started to playing the bass the end of last year. I have tried on my own for about a month and decided I need some professional help. I just needed an instructor who could guide me and answer my constant questions rather than having to look up instructions online. Jordan is worth the time and money just having someone who can easily answer my questions or instruct me on what I am doing wrong. After the first month, I can see a lot of improvement from when I first started the online lessons. Jordan is very patient and knows his stuff. These types of lessons and also Jordan's enthusiasm motivates me to keep going when normally I would not try as hard when learning on my own. I am very happy with my instructor and online lessons. I would recommend Jordan for those who are interested in playing guitar."
