As a composer of new music, it is essential to support the local community of musicians through lessons which support individual interests and patiently encourage progress at every level. I teach all ages and can work with any level of skill in terms of instrument ability, music theory, or music engraving. If you sing, play an instrument, or are interested in the manipulation of sound: composition lessons are for you!

In a typical lesson we will begin to develop a new project or analyze a work in progress. Students can expect composition games and exercises with pen and paper for each lesson. If you have Engraving/DAW software like Finale, Sibelius, Ableton, or Logic we will utilize that for games and projects. Helping each student develop their compositional style while increasing their knowledge of music theory, improvisation, and engraving skills are my main goals.

Whether you would like to increase your music theory knowledge, learn how to write music, arrange a

Ive really enjoyed my experiences with Josh. He is well versed in all styles of composition and specializes in more modern avant-garde styles. Our lessons in modern counterpoint have really improved my harmonizations skills and expanded what I thought was capable for chords in a band setting.(i.e. jazz big band, concert band, orchestra, etc.)

From rock to classical music we will explore guitar playing in a fun and constructive way! From day one the focus will be on making music with the guitar as opposed to just a dry, academic approach. And that is not to say that what we will be learning won't be academic. My curriculum is designed to create musically-conscious students who appreciate and understand music to a collegiate degree.

Hi! My name is Baltazar! I am a passionate teacher and musician who has been playing since about age 10 and teaching since about age 15.

Learning to play the trumpet is a rewarding experience. Many people think you need to be big and tough to play the trumpet. But it's quite the opposite - it is an instrument requiring precision coordination between the embochure (lips) and the fingers. It's more akin to precision surgury than an athletic competition.

I will help the student develop a good foundation to play the trumpet well. Everyone wants to play loud and high but developing a good sound is crucial before attempting advanced techniques. I will help the student make sure they are developing and progressing in the right direction.

About Sean

We are a husband and wife piano teaching team that enjoy seeing children grow as they expand their musical skill set. We are firm believers of learning the fundamentals. We teach all ages and levels, and want our students to be having fun! And if your piano needs a tuning, we do that too! It

Learning from Mr. Higgins has been a great experience. He is extremely knowledgeable and definitely knows his stuff! As a freshman high school trumpet player, I needed a lot of help on various things. Mr. Higgins went above and beyond in helping me improve on those tricky things and always made me feel at home and not at all pressured. For any student that truly wants a professional's advice and is serious about getting better, Sean Higgins is one of the best.

Mr. Higgins is a wonderful piano teacher! He is very receptive to my overall goals with piano and tailors each of our lessons to meet my abilities and ensure that I am learning well-rounded skills. During our lessons we review workbook music, (beginner) classical pieces, technique, and ear training. I'm really enjoying learning from Mr. Higgins, and he makes each lesson both educational and fun!

I specialize teaching beginners. Playing new instruments takes a little time and patience. I have taught from 3 years to 70 years old!! Anyone can start playing anytime!!

About Yuko

I am very pleased with my first lesson! Yuko's method of instruction made it easy for me to catch on to patterns and to notice similarities to English and other languages. I am excited about how far I can go with her instruction.

Yuko is very kind and patient. She is also very knowledgeable and explains everything in such a great way my 13 year old enjoyed her class very much.

My son really loved Yuko who replaced his previous teacher who is no longer with Takelessons. He knows how to play some kids songs already. But after their lesson, there is this an instant motivation to learn deeper.
He is now having learning with Yuko.

"Excellent lesson., Ryan is very professional, explaining the purpose of each assignment, having a notebook for the instructions, and focusing on the student's desires during the lesson. I am very excited by his enthusiasm and look forward to my lessons. I couldn't wait to practice after he left, even succeeding at part of the assignment that I had doubts I could complete."

Matt is doing lessons with my 6-year old son and from the moment they met it was magic. Matt talks to him at a level he can understand, is so patient with him and really allows for him to have fun while learning at the same time. Matt is our third instructor over the past year and he is by far the best. My son is enthused about picking up the drums again and excited when Friday rolls around."

"Roberta is an excellent instructor, per the fuller review that follows this summry.

I come to the flute late in life, though with a background in Celtic music on simpler wind instruments. Roberta has guided me skillfully and with compassionate direction since I embarked on my flute journey. She is helping me make the transition from folk instruments to the flute in as painless a manner as is likely to be possible. I look forward to each lesson and am highly motivated to practice in order to continue to derive the full benefits of Roberta's considerable knowledge, wisdom, artistry and instructional skill. When a particular element of a lesson goes well, it is sometimes hard to tell who is the most delighted--the student or the teacher."
