Lessons are fun. My philosophy is that students should have music in their lives and benefit from the lessons they take now for years to come. Learning to play a musical instrument will help students with math skills, study habits, and develop a skill that will last for a lifetime.

After 3 months students will understand the fundamentals of their string instrument, know how to care for their instrument, warm up properly, be able to read and play introductory passages. After 6 months the student will have learned basic music theory, how to read music, and have advanced through playing multiple songs.

About Betsy

Music is the biggest passion in my life. I love being able to share that gift with my students, and look forward to their progress as much as my own. I continue to grow and develop as a musician, and love connecting with people through music. My students all learn to love and appreciate music, t

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

Nancy was excellent. She was no nonsense and to the point in her lessons. We never wasted time and I always left with a little more knowledge under my belt. I’ve moved out of LA and have hired other instructors but none as succinct as Nancy. I definitely got my money’s worth with Nancy. I would return to her for lessons if I returned to LA.
Tamsin
Nancy is a wonderful teacher, my teenage son began with her at the awkward age of 14, new to the violin and a requirement of his new school.
She not only got him playing, but instilled a love of music and of composition. Nancy was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as my son transitioned and has a special place in our hearts

New to LA , I found Leggy Fish Music on my second search for cello teacher. I’m so glad I did. Nancy is great teacher , working with me as some one late to music on basics as well as creative methods.
She creates new and different classes - group , and mash up with different musicians and instruments.
She seems to get the best from all her students.

Welcome to my violin and viola studio! I believe that every student can enjoy the process of studying an instrument, and can learn to play with ease and joy. As a result, I work to determine each student's learning style, look for ways to encourage individual ownership of learning, and adapt my approach to help meet each student’s needs and goals. I teach both Suzuki and traditional lessons, and draw from a variety of musical styles and approaches to help students develop a broad range of skills that include a strong technical foundation, ear training, sight-reading, ensemble playing, and musical self-expression. Through this approach, I hope to help students develop a lifelong love for music that will serve them in all future endeavors, musical or otherwise.

Emily is an excellent teacher. I have no knowledge of music at all and she has been very patient in teaching me the basics. I have done 5 lessons with her (one in person and 4 online) and she has been very helpful thoughout. She made sure to send me copies of the lessons and recommended books, so I could practice offline.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"We LOVE Susanna!
My son decided to play the viola, out of the blue (not for school, just for his own sake), so we went to TakeLessons to find him a teacher.
Susanna is so patient, and supportive. He has steadily increased his knowledge and abilities with her guidance.
My son always finishes his lesson and says, that was a really good lesson! Music to my mama ears!
We highly recommend Susanna!"
