My History of Piano:
I have been teaching piano for 10 years. My 25 years of training is mostly through private lessons and passed down generational methods taught through my mentor, Joann Maybe.

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True Inner Dancer."

Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Meets you at your dance level and you move forward from there. Excellent attitude and knowledgeable instructor. Professional and thorough.

Do you want to play classical piano music: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven? You are in the right place!

I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method.

También disponible la clase en español.

Laura had such a welcoming presence and didn’t make me feel bad about my voice at all, she made me feel way more confident. I am a beginner and I noticed an instant change in my voice, a good change. Laura also introduced me to a new part of my voice I didn’t know existed so I would definitely recommend her to anyone I meet.

Rachel was my piano teacher from middle school through high school, and she was always encouraging and focused. She is a gentle and patient, which makes her a great choice for young kids (or ultra-sensitive middle schoolers, like me - or really just anyone who isn't already a flawless prodigy when it comes to music). She was good at selecting pieces that I would enjoy and that would stretch me, and she was flexible enough to work around my own musical goals (like playing by chords).
She's an experienced instructor, a skilled player, and a positive mentor figure to have in your child's life.
Definitely recommend.
Andrea
I took lessons from Rachel for 7 years. She's a fantastic beginner piano teacher that taught me the joy of learning and inspired me to go into the professional field of music.

"My daughter started piano lessons with Fawn at three years of age. She is now six years old and not only playing but reading music as well. I’ve also noticed my daughter booking more jobs in television and print because of the confidence she has acquired by playing in Fawn's Talent Share's. She is amazing with kids and I highly recommend her! Fawn is the best!"

"Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner."

"Rachel's greatest strength as a piano teacher is her ability to build a love for piano in her students.
My kids LOVED their lessons with her. They were even self-motivated to practice. (!)
Rachel built a rock-solid foundation of a love for music and piano into my children. Some of my kids have gone on to become serious piano students, well equipped for higher levels. Some are less musical, but came away with a good knowledge of music fundamentals, and very happy memories of their years with Rachel. She is a very sweet and encouraging teacher!"
