Great first lessons

Rodrigo is an excellent instructor! He explains everything thoroughly and makes the accordion less intimidating to play.
Barbara Judd
I have been taking accordion lessons from Rodrigo for about 6 months. I had never been successful playing a couple of instruments from long ago. I have now made great progress from Rodrigo's instructions. He helps me understand music theory, reading music, simplifying music, and how to charge my musical working memory. I have long been a collector of music. This is the first time I've felt progress and success.

I have used DAW software as Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Linux Multi-Media Studio for several years to create original, favorably reviewed electronic music concepts. While a sizable sample of studio time has been either independent (releases on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify) or for multimedia, as E-Learning/Articulate360, the initial impulse was to contribute acoustic backgrounds and creative inspiration for live bands. I have released several singles and albums on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify, ITunes, Amazon, Youtube, and related media outlets. Additionally, my songs have been trending on multiple playlists from magazines and music agents. This includes a reader submission reward for an exemplary genre demo. I have garnered over 100K listeners and followers on various channels. Essential for a decent command of Ableton Live is to learn both session and arrangement views. We study systematically the task and the art of embedding vocals, instruments, midi, effects, automation, and ...

Erol is very knowledgeable and has helped me to develop great awareness on how l speak and what to do to reduce my accent. In a month l already noticed some improvement.
Rosa Mac
Very pleased with the course and the instructor. Even though it was a miscommunication at the beginning, we were able to connect with the instructor's information. (Takelessons sends one meeting code, and instructor send another one????). Class was good, instructor very nice, organized and patient (2 hrs time zone difference). Will continue class in the future. I highly recommend Erol.

I work with beginners to advance singers. I love to focus on my clients Uniqueness. Every voice is different and I like to help support those qualities by giving them the tools they need to make their voice flourish. I like to incorporate more modern styles of music in my curriculum, with the emphasis on posture, muscle relaxation and breathing technique among other benefiting vocal exercises!
I also work on Artist Development with singers & songwriters who are wanting to pursue a music career as an Artist. With Artist Development, I focus more on the development of the clients vocal image and help them pin point their Artist niche.

Jesaiah is AMAZING! She always stays long enough to answer all of my questions. She remembers what you're interested in and implements it in her teaching. She always takes the time to find exercises that fit me, sends me informational links and notes from our class. She will pull you up with herself. And she is the nicest and she just has a lot of positivity! I did a lot of research before starting and if I go back, I'd 100% choose to take singing classes with her, again! Oh and she's a WONDERFUL singer!!
Jesse
Wow! Jesaiah is great. I have been her student since the first of the year and have learned so much and she makes learning fun. She's even recommended some producers to help me with my original song.

Amazing teacher. She has been teaching my kids since they’re five and now that they’re 9 you can se how huge their improvement was thanks to Ms Jesaiah!

Greg
One of the most talented musicians I have ever met. While trombone is his main instrument, he plays and instructs exceptionally well on a myriad of other instruments. He is calm and patient with learners and has a very rich knowledge base when it comes to musical literature and technique. I highly recommend Justin Hammis for anyone interested in private lessons.
Jessie
He was band director for my kids. He is a terrific person and a fun, talented director.

"I took many lessons with Francisco after a period of relative inactivity from playing drums on a consistent basis. I had been playing for years, but had unfortunately become rusty and out of practice at the time. Francisco helped me build my chops back up, and introduced me to new unique concepts in phrasing, approaching grooves, technique, and much more. Francisco's down-to-earth and very friendly personality, combined with his obvious passion for drums and percussion, made every lesson an event I looked forward to. He gave me a lot to think about each lesson, providing me with great musical concepts that can be studied for life. Francisco isn't a teacher who only thrives teaching beginners. As a drummer for several years with lots of performing experience, he still managed to significantly help improve my playing and reignite my spark in drumming. Thanks, dude"
