Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended

Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Love how she teaches the mechanics of learning to sing properly such as breathing correctly and posture right from the start for a beginner. Fantastic instructor!

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

A+mazing! I've been to several Take Lesson Instructors and as an advanced student, I had the best experience with Fawn. Fawn is an expert in her craft. Results are fast and effective. She is organized, to the point, and efficient. She knows her stuff! Also, very nice and uplifting. Thank you, Fawn! :)
Miriam and Allie
We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!

A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!

"Daniel is an interactive tutor who is very helpful with any calculus problems you have. He helped me study for my math test by going through problems step by step with me, which allowed me to understand the concepts at hand. He made sure that I actually understood the process by asking me questions, so it wasn’t only memorization but actual grasping of the way to solve problems. I definitely recommend Daniel to anyone who would like help with their calculus!"

He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too.
