My 11 year old daughter really enjoyed. She picked a song she likes and Jordan created a hip hop dance to go along with it. I highly recommend her!

Jordan is a wonderful teacher and a very nice person. I have enjoyed my ballet classes very much. Jordan is very knowledgable in dancing techniques and has an inspiring passion. Great experience. Would recommend it to anyone looking for dancing classes.

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!
Tamura H.
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!
Tamura H.
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.

Very helpful, patient, answered all of my questions, and taught me how to do my makeup.
Adelaide
Nikisha was very professional, patient and nice all at the same time. She went over everything I needed to know and learn slowly and even went over the time limit just to make sure I was ok with the lesson. I’m so glad I found her and would definitely recommend and come again.
Shonda P.
My daughter and I are very happy and pleased with the class my daughter had today with Nikisha. The knowledge and skill that she uses to teach teens how to properly take care of their skin on top of how to properly apply makeup the correct way and not going over the top is wonderful. She helped my daughter feel more confident in her technique when applying makeup. She answered all questions that my daughter asked. Nikisha was very professional and I appreciate her craft and time today just simply amazing!!

Amazing teacher of the makeup arts! First lesson was for a six year old and she had so much fun! Alexandra is definitely knowledgeable well above the skills needed for a six year old but her teaching ability is what was really impressive.

"Super Enjoyed our first online class..even with some technical difficulties due to my antivirus software firewall, or browser or the weak wifi in my place or something...Truly enjoyed it. Jason was very kind and patient, while we tried to fix the technical aspect. Once we got started on the phone because video and voice didn't work; I really learned a lot, and gathered insight into Acting that I couldn't get from a book or other classes that I have taken. I'm truly blessed I get the opportunity to work and learn from Jason. I am super excited and can't wait till our next lesson. I will call technical support at Take Lessons to get technical help to fix the issues, and will buy a portable wifi hotspot if I have to solve the video and sound issue. Jason is patient, kind, very nice, professional, extremely knowledgeable, I can't say enough good things. Thank you very much for all your help and your time. I look forward to the journey ahead... Take care. Aloha. -Bobby"
