My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.
JoAnn C.
Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

I have over ten years of experience teaching violin and viola to students of all ages and backgrounds. I teach children as young as 5 years old up through adult. As a teacher, I cater to varying learning styles and use many different techniques to fit my students’ individual needs. I believe that no one learns in the same way, and as a result of this philosophy, I adapt my teaching to each specific, unique situation. I want music to be a fun activity where students can feel comfortable expressing themselves!

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

My main focus for me would be for you to enjoy making music. That means
1. Working in a smart way so you would reach the best from your potential in a comfortable way.
2. Understanding that each person is unique and in that matters, the way of learning, of relating with the teacher and approaching to the violin playing.
3. Having fun while practicing and during the lesson.

"I'm actually a colleague of Michael's from the Las Colinas Symphony, and freelance work too. But I do learn a lot from the guy, so maybe consider me a student also! He's one of the finest, and most well respected musicians in the orchestra. Super knowledgeable, very creative and fun. Call this guy up, talk to him for 2 minutes, you will see what I mean."

"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!"

"My daughter started taking online voila lessons with Nikita, and because this was our first experience with online lessons, we weren’t sure about what to expect. Turns out, my daughter started improving on all of the skills she hadn’t mastered. This growth started very quickly after lessons, thanks to Nikita! Through years of playing, she has never learned to acquire these skills, and after two or three lessons she had fully conprehended them. Nikita helped her so much!"

"Kan is truly one of the most thorough, patient, and detail-oriented instructors I have ever had. She actually teaches her students the basics, which many tend to skip, but she stresses is important if you truly want to be a good musician.

She is extremely kind, devotes her full undivided attention to her students, and you can tell she is very passionate about music and teaching.

If you're looking for an instructor, Kan is one of the best! You wont be disappointed."
