Great teacher

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Shannon for 2-3 years. She really enjoys her time with Shannon and has learned so much! Shannon does a wonderful job of creating chamber music groups with recitals, in which my daughter was able to take part - definitely nothing that would have been offered in her school at this level! We are very lucky to have found Shannon!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you Maureen for the piano lessons you have been giving to my mom.. It was so wonderful yesterday my brother and his family came to the house and mom played "Love Me Tender", of course by Elvis Presley.
It was a tear jerking moment.
Mom has had issues with her brain from a car accident, and her piano lessons with you have been the best, best thing for her....from our entire family,
Thank you

Family Music Teacher

We have enjoyed having Maureen as our family’s music teacher. My son started taking flute lessons with Maureen in 2009 and advanced through the levels very quickly. He plays flute in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). He also plays saxophone and tried out and was selected for the Alameda County Honor Band. Maureen worked with him on jazz theory and improvisation and he plays in the jazz band at school. With Maureen, he worked through all six levels of Master Theory and is ready for the college level AP Music Theory at 14 years old. He also completed the MTAC (Music Teachers’ Association of California) Composer’s Today workbooks and used http://www.noteflight.com to write his own music and participate in composition contests. My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons with Maureen and has been doing a great job. She is playing classical music on violin in school and in YOSAC (Youth Orchestra of Southern Alameda County). On piano she is learning to play the blues and jazz, as well as learning theory and composition. Both of my children have been able to successfully participate in the LaHonda Summer Music Camp. We have had a great experience with Maureen throughout the past 5 years and have enjoyed seeing her each week.

Last October my daugther received piano lessons as a gift for her birthday. We started taking lessons with Maureen in November, my daugther, who had just turned 6 was very excited to start classes. Maureen had been very patient with her and caters to her ability and age. Sometimes my daugther gets discouraged, because she feels like she isn't progresing as fast as she would like, but after class she is always excited and ready to come home and continue practicing. Overall, I am pleased with our experience thus far. Maureen is very accommodating and is equipping my daugther with the skills she needs to be a successful piano player.

My 10 y/o daughter is taking online piano lessons with Bonnie and we couldn't be more pleased! Prior to Bonnie, she has taken lessons off and on since she was 5 and never really got into them. She dreaded practicing, and didn't really like her teacher. Bonnie is so sweet and patient with her. Every little step forward gets praise from Bonnie. My daughter is learning all kids of new stuff. She practices almost everyday, and without me telling her to. I was worried about online lessons for piano, but it doesn't seem to interfere with the teaching/learning process. Glad to have found TakeLessons and more importantly, Bonnie!

Fantastic teacher all around. I'm enjoying my lessons with Stepher and taking advantage of her knowledge of theory, technique, guidance, evaluation and assignments.
Daniel S. Boston, MA

My goal is to help students forge a positive relationship with the oboe and the experience of making music. I've been playing for over 13 years with 4 years of intensive teaching experience and a conservatory degree.

No two students are the same, so I operate according to each person's goals, whether they're learning for their own enjoyment or planning a career. I'm experienced in a plethora of genres, so whatever you want to do with the oboe, I have the skills, the time and the experience to help you make it happen.

About Daniel

When I started learning oboe at age 10 I was told by my band director that it was going to be too difficult and not worth the trouble. The oboe may be slightly more difficult to start out with than the other instruments, but it is also more rewarding. What it lacks in ease it makes up for in beauty and character. I want to make sure that no one misses out on the joy of this instrument out of intimidation! Having an experienced teacher and reedmaker to help is essential, and I will gladly offer my skills to anyone interested in the instrument at any age or stage of development. With the right instructor, learning the oboe is no more difficult than any other woodwind. I have been the oboe teacher at Camp Encore/Coda for three years and a counselor for many more. During that time I ...

Daniel is a very engaging teacher that makes learning to play the oboe enjoyable. His encouragement made playing the oboe more fulfilling for me than it had ever been in the past with other instructors. He strikes a good balance between constructive criticism and cheerful reward for a job well done. Time in lessons is always well spent and I always walked out feeling like I had made great improvements in just an hour's time. I would highly recommend him!

Dan is wonderful. Let alone the fact that he's amazing at what he does, the way he teaches is so easy and good for whatever level you may be at. I learned with him for a few years at Camp Encore/Coda and then for a little while during the year, so I got to know him really well. He helped my knowledge and skill with the oboe grow immensely. When I started with him, I was not very good at playing, and he gave me the exercises right for me. He is so nice to learn from for he understands what is the best for his student, and he pushes you the right amount so you improve, but don't get stressed out or worried. I didn't think "I'm not good enough" when he gave me something hard for he gave me the tools needed to keep moving forward. Learning from Dan was a really great experience.

Prior to my time at Camp Encore/Coda, my experiences of oboe teachers and been unengaging, boring and most importantly, uninspiring. Dan was such a great contrast to previous old and stale lessons - I actually looked forward to his! He is a thoughtful teacher who aims to teach, but also understand. His work with me on the oboe was hugely beneficial, and fundamentally inspiring. His love for the music and the instrument is at the forefront of his teaching, and he perpetually convinced me of my own. Thank you, Dan!
