Music Lessons in Columbia, NC

You live in Columbia, North Carolina but you don’t think private music lessons are worth your hard-earned money. In your opinion they’re expensive and you don’t have the time to travel to take them. On top of that, you have a busy schedule which most Columbia music lessons providers cannot accommodate. As a result, you’d rather learn by yourself via articles and videos found on the web but you’re finding your progress is slow and you don’t have anybody to ask questions when your stuck. Well we’re glad you found us, because we can help.

First off, we believe that no one should undertake learning a musical instrument on their own. In order to ensure the best learning experience we feel that every student needs a teacher that can provide guidance, track progress and inspire the student to beco
me a better musician. At TakeLessons, our instructors will not only teach you how to play an instrument, dance, sing, or act, but they’ll also help motivate you to improve your skill-set. With that in mind, our music lessons do not simply cover technique. Instead you may also have the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned through concerts and recitals. In addition, our Columbia music lessons are not as restrictive as you may find with other music lesson providers. You can personalize your lessons by selecting the instrument, teacher, schedule and location that is convenient for us as many of our instructors will even travel to their student’s home to teach.

To top it off, our Columbia music lessons are backed by TakeLessons’ FirstClass Experience guarantee. With this we promise we will do our best to provide you with an excellent lesson experience that satisfies your expectations. If we don’t and you feel your first music lesson is not what you expected we’ll gladly help you find a new teacher or simply give you your money back. So don’t go it alone! Start your lessons today with a Certified TakeLessons instructor you can trust to help you achieve your musical goals.

Daniel O. Pittsburgh, PA

About Daniel

I begin by seeing students as unique individuals first, and my students second. We then proceed along a uniquely designed curriculum based around their personal passion for music. I have found it is not uncommon for beginners to lose heart as the early stages of musical development tend to have their challenges. However my experience has taught me that with a great teacher anyone can make music making a part of their life! I pride myself on helping my students by truly getting to know them and their challenges so they may achieve free, easy, and fun music making! I am currently pursuing my Master's Degree at the University of South Carolina. I have a specialty in Classical playing but my roots are in electric, singer/songwriter pop, rock, and blues. I have had success teaching a ...

My son Joshua has been playing trombone for 5 years before we were introduced to Jackie Falcon. Her incredible talent and professionalism stretched Joshua's skills to the point that he now plays for several churches and is planning to enlist in the Marine Corps and play in one of their regional bands. She is an incredible asset to 'bone' players at all skill levels.

Jacquelene Falcon or Jackie if you will is a great lesson teacher !!! She's young, intelligent, laid back , and a cool person to be around. She makes sure to work with students to exemplify their strengths and build upon their weaknesses. During my time with Jackie she's improved my breathing, sound quality, tuning, and my range. Her lessons feature unique exercises that center on focusing on one aspect of your overall playing. I would definitely recommend her if you're seeking lessons or just want someone to jam with .

Estela A. Columbia, SC

About Estela

Hello black belt musicians and parents! I am the CEO/Founder of a private studio, as well as a classically trained trumpeter currently residing in the city of Columbia, South Carolina. As a young musician, I frequently earned high marks on solo performances and was the recipient of numerous awards, including the John Philip Sousa Achievement Award and a musicianship solo award from The Instrumentalist Magazine. When I was 11 years old (and my amazing mother can testify here) I said I would pursue music as a career...but little did I know exactly how. Actively working in the Tampa Bay area in Florida allowed me to perform with a variety of wind ensembles, symphonies, jazz bands and chamber groups, as well as playing for church engagements and as a soloist. My favorite adventure was ...

Estela has been great. She really connects with my son and he is re-interested in applying himself. He had started to lose interest with his last teacher.

Trumpet · In studio
My daughter, Emily, began private lessons with Estela during the second half of her sixth grade year while taking band as an elective. Estela seemed to transfer her enthusiasm for the trumpet to my quiet daughter. When she started 7th grade she was placed in the Symphonic band, bypassing her peers and was chosen for the All County Honor Band in 7th and 8th grade. She also earned superior ratings in Solo and Ensemble during 7th and 8th grade. During Emily’s time with her she encouraged her to participate in a trumpet workshop and attend some trumpet concerts at the University of Tampa, and provided recordings of famous trumpet players for her to enjoy. All of these different musical experiences that Estela exposed Emily to helped foster an enthusiasm and love for the trumpet. As a parent I am very grateful for Estela’s influence on Emily. She helped my daughter catch the trumpet bug.- Barbara Lind, parent, studied for 3 years.

How to Start a Singing Career: On-Stage and Behind-the-Scenes

Sad Violin Music That Will Bring You to Tears
An effective practice routine incorporates a variety of things, including scales, long tones, technical exercises, sight reading, and repertoire work. However, there is one other very important habit that musicians should incorporate into their regular practice routine, no matter what their age or skill level: listening to other performers.
