I have had three classes so far with David, but already from the first class I knew he was supreme! He is an excellent teacher and an excellent musician. What keeps impressing me is his ability in understanding exactly what I am doing wrong while I play just by hearing the sound of the trumpet. Super!

Air + Vibration = Sound

This formula will be the foundation for all that we do in our lessons, and it is easy to learn. Once it is understood and developed, it will then be mastered. Our lessons will focus on striving for excellent technique while developing a beautiful sound.

Jeremy has been teaching baritone to our son for over a year. We appreciate his patience, positive friendly attitude and encouraging words to our child. Jeremy has made learning an instrument fun, and is always challenging our son to remember what they went over in each lesson, and what the focus is going to be for the following week. He has been flexible to accommodate our schedule needs as well. We would highly recommend Jeremy for all levels of instruction!

Chris taught one lesson to my son, then he cancelled the following week's lesson and never returned numerous phone calls, emails, and text messages. He didn't respond, then the following week at our next scheduled instruction he called me 30 mins before the lesson asking if he could move the date.

Needless to say, it was very unprofessional of him, and we intended to end our relationship with him as my son's instructor.

The thing got worse when he proceeded to schedule my son for a weekly reoccurring lesson for the next year. I've had to manually cancel each lesson, at least until Jan 2015.

I would strongly warn you against signing up with Chris if you expect an instructor who is reliable and responsive to your communications. I'm sorry it didn't work out, but the other problem is that this was my son's first experience to music lessons, so it was a bad first experience.

We're giving 3 out of 5 stars since that seems fair. With regards to the lessons themselves, Chris certainly met our expectations with our son's violin lessons. However, with regards to communications and scheduling, it could have been much better. More than once my son was waiting on Skype after receiving the "You have upcoming lessons" email from TakeLessons. Chris needs to learn how to cancel the lessons ahead of time. He rarely responded to emails (was trying to get him to stop showing our email openly to all his other students, really needs to learn how to use BCC). He never returned phone calls. Due to the canceled lessons, our TakeLesson pay date came prematurely, and since I waited until our son's paid lessons were completed before paying for new ones, we got dropped from the schedule and lost our time slot. Too many frustrations led to finding a new teacher.

Great teacher, especially for kids!

My two boys -- ages 8 & 10 -- needed just the right teacher to begin learning the piano, and I'm so glad we started with Chris. He related to them right away, just sat down and started working with them and within seconds they were playing. He interwove fun with learning seamlessly. The boys looked forward to their lessons with him. Thank you, Chris!!

About Tuba

Would you like to experience playing an instrument with a sound so big and deep that everyone will be sure to pay attention to you? If so, you should try playing the tuba. As you may or may not know, the tuba is the largest and lowest pitched instrument among the brass wind family. It may seem to be an uncommon instrument to play, especially in popular music, however the tuba has been widely employed in creating the distinct sound of drum and bugle corps, drum and brass corps, marching bands, concert bands, and jazz bands. The tuba can be somewhat difficult to play due to its size and the manner in which its sound is produced, but luckily tuba lessons exist so you can learn the knowledge required to properly play the instrument. By taking tuba lessons with us, you will learn the basic ...
