About Dilys
Ms Dilys has been teaching since 2001. She has taught children and adult of all experience levels. Her goal is to help students to make their musical experience in a fun and fulfilling way by implementing games and other teaching tools.

*** Lesson Details ***
For young beginners, I use a lot of listening and singing games to increase their interest in learning music. They will be able to read music notes after 3 months and be able to play some short pieces By using the right method, it becomes easy in reading notes.

I hold recitals once to twice per year which give important experiences for our children. For advanced students, i encourage them to take cert
ificate examination and to participate in other competitions

I believe we are striving for the same goal --- make this music learning experience FUN and FULFILLING

*** Travel Equipment ***
All games tools are provided by myself. I expect my student have their own books

Very nice and patient teacher. Made the first lesson fun and not boring or overwhelming for my 5 year old. He sat through the whole 30 minute lesson without any problems because she kept it interesting for him.

I actually have been playing and performing on the Piano longer than the Guitar- since I was 10 years old. I have a lot of knowledge that will help you to understand the instrument better and sharpen your Piano skills. I will assist in your sight reading, song creativity, building up a solid repertoire, technique, comprehending music theory, etc. We will strengthen any area any area you are looking to develop.

About David
A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Voice, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish in their musical abilities. I have been enjoying doing this now for 20+ years- all ages & levels. I am also in a multi-dimensional rock project and a recording artist with my band Vision.

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever th
e interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

First lesson was awesome! David let my son take the lead and was able to quickly change focus and use his vast knowledge to teach relevant skills. He learned so many new things this first lesson and can't wait for the next one. David was so patient and kind with my teen, who is on the spectrum. We highly recommend him.

· Vocal Training · In studio
I took lessons with David for a few months and I was rather thrilled with the lessons in the beginning and quite upset towards the end of our time together. David is a great teacher for the general hobbyist or child but I outgrew his lesson homework within 8 weeks of lessons. It was at this point that I asked David to record the vocal warm ups so I (as well as other students) could practice more conveniently. He assured me he would, and week after weeks, the warm ups weren't available. David knew I only had a limited amount of time until I was moving from the area. He had the idea that we should record one of my original songs using his homemade recording studio. He wasn't very knowledgeable of the program he was using at the time and I was his first student who he tried this on. We ended up using about 6 of my lesson credits on this song (which was out of time from the beginning). After a while of minimal progress on the song, no recorded vocal warm ups and plateau in my vocal learning, I decided to cancel lessons with David earlier than decided. David is a very friendly person with a moderate knowledge of most instruments but I would not recommend him to someone who is serious about advancing their craft on a professional level.

Making a piano lesson efficient and fun is what I can do best. With a Berklee College of Music degree I have had the pleasure of studying with some absolutely crazy and amazing musicians, which have helped me shape the way I play and teach. Interested in composing, ear training, improvisation, and music theory too? I've got you covered!

About Lorenzo
I'm a Berklee College of Music graduate with a degree in Film Scoring, I have over 15 years of piano experience; having played with some really great musicians! Being a full time composer, I will help you not only learn how to read and play music, I can teach you the basics of how to write your own music, may it be simple piano pieces to orchestral scores!

In my opinion, playing piano is one of the most exhilarating instruments to play; you'll be able to understand music theory better, easier to learn other instruments, and learn how to play any song to your liking. The possibilities are just endless.

About John
I have 40 years of playing drums & percussion and 12 years of teaching beginning and intermediate drummers by ear, performance & notation. Preforming drums has brought so much enjoyment to my life and has expanded my cognitive and creative mind more than I would have ever realized when I started in 1978. Teaching/sharing my drumming experience is a passion, my students are taught not only how to play drums but also about music structure (verse, chorus, bridge, etc.), how to perform with other musicians and how to dissect a piece of music. Various styles and rhythms are taught and rudiments are covered thoroughly - nothing better than an impressive double stroke roll! I have always been a teacher that I feel can understand each personality and adjust my approach to each lesson as needed and furthermore, I always treat my students with res
pect, courtesy and patience which I find makes them more apt to relax, listen, learn, feel the music and have fun!

Aku is a talented, kind, and patient teacher. She connected remarkably well with my 4 year old daughter, who always looked forward to her weekly lesson with Aku. She progressed very quickly through her lessons, faster than you would except for someone her age, and I am sure this was because of Aku’s teaching. Aku played a duet with my daughter for her recital. She was the youngest student there and they did so well! I was so proud of her and what’s even better is that she was so excited and proud of what she accomplished over the past year. Thank you so much Aku!!!

It is with great pleasure I recommended Yelena if you are looking for piano teacher. Yelena has been my teacher for much of 2009, after i made the drcision to pursue piano lessons as an adult. AlthoughI had taken piano lessons for a couple years as a child, my knowledge of the keyboard and understanding were of music were limited. I have worked with other piano teachers since reaching childhood, but the expeirience was not inspiring
or motivational.
That all changed when i started working with Yelena.
Her passion for sharing her love of music with her studentshas been great source of joy for me. With her guidance, I am playing at a much advanced level
Then ever before, and with a deeper appriciation of what i am doing. She combines the rigth amount of theory and scale work, with learning classisl pieces.
Yelena has the patience and warms of a great teacher, and believe she would be equally good working with children as she is with adults. Her contribution to promote the love of playing music in her students is a true gift to us all.

Classically trained pianist for 14 years. Students will study music from all time periods from baroque to modern and develop a variety of music theory skills including sight reading, ear training, and technic. I want my students to not only meet their musical goals, but also gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of music in the process!

About Jessica
I started playing the piano when I was 4 years old, and studied with Jane Bastien from 2004-2018. During that time, I participated in a variety of competitions and festivals, including MTAC's Sonata Contest and festivals held by the National Federation of Music Clubs. Mrs. Bastien cultivated in me a passion for music and one of my biggest goals as a teacher is to spread the love of music to my students!

Although I trained as a classical pianist, I have served as an accompanist for several different ensembles performing various musical genres. I love all types of music and will customize each lesson based on my students' individual needs and goals.

I won many local young pianist competitions and participated in the International piano competitions in Russia, Poland, Croatia, and Bulgaria.

I really enjoy teaching the children of different age and keep very positive, friendly and comfortable environment during the piano lessons. I expect my students to progress week by week by providing them a very dynamic program of piano performance, music literacy, and improvisation with further recitals, competition, and exams. Look forward to meeting my future pianist!
