Monica is wonderful!
Wow! I was impressed by Monica's recap from her class about reading music. She made things so clear- it helped me a lot, now I can explain them to my own student more easily! I also love her positive attitude!
Sawyer ..
It doesn’t get much better than hearing from my child “Monica is so awesome. At the beginning of the song it goes super low and I couldn’t hit the notes. She helped me with my technique and by the end of the lesson it was easier to hit them! And even though I know I did awful trying to hit them at the beginning she didn’t make me feel like she thought it was bad!”

My kids love their lessons with Monica, she is always positive and supportive with them and I can tell they are improving vocally. Very happy we chose her!

I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

Experienced teacher of 40 years, with a strong background in classical piano. I have been fortunate to have studied with three superb piano teachers throughout my life, and have learned from each how to relate to students and encourage a deeper knowledge of the repertoire, as well as solid practicing and performance technique. I am not intimidating at all and I meet each student where she/he happens to be on the musical journey.

About Will

I'm a professional pianist/ accompanist with over 40 years experience as a teacher and performer. I enjoy helping students progress and increase their ability, as well as their musicianship. If you give time to practicing, the piano will give back much more, and become a rich part of your life.

I have known Will for many years. He is an incredibly talented musician and an excellent teacher. I worked with Will in a number of musical shows and projects in our area and started classical piano with him when I was 30. In a very short period of time, I was playing with confidence and went on to write, record, and release two full-length original pop albums using piano as a main source of instrumentation! Will is highly recommended!
Ellen
Will Duchon is an excellent piano teacher. He not only teaches technique with great clarity, but most importantly, he possesses the wonderful ability to convey a deep sense of musicality to his students. He does this with patience and passion, with a focus on the joy of musical learning rather than simply the pieces themselves. He knows how to balance challenge with fun, while gently encouraging and motivating his students every step of the way. I highly recommend Will without hesitation!

For blues guitar the first thing I do when I meet a student is to interview the student and find out why they want to learn how to play the guitar and what are some of their goals. Then I find out what style of music they would like to learn. I have the student come up with ten songs they would like to learn. I take this information and structure future guitar lessons around the essential elements of these songs. I design each lesson to teach the specific skills required to learn those songs. I create an organized binder guitar workbook and having a teaching degree I create all of the lessons to meet each students individual needs that include lessons on theory, technique, chords, rhythm, scales, arpeggios, songs, song form, and exercises etc. I use a color coded method to teach scales, chords and theory that I created that help students not only understand scales but also they are able to see visually where chords come from. I break down each song into easy digestible parts so ...

I only have high accolades for David. I've learned more from David in the mere 5 lessons then I learned in a years worth of lessons in the past. His method of teaching is perfect with the right amount of homework. He customizes the lesson for the type of music I ultimately want to play with a good balance of theory and practical lessons to get me there. Bravo!!!

With me students listen and practice their way to being complete musicians. They improvise from the start, quickly gaining confidence that music is their domain and that they can be creative in music, more than expert readers and interpreters. They practice because they want to improve something they've heard in their playing; to help them hear, I guide them in recording and reviewing their own playing.

This creative and self-directed approach, combined with a strong foundation I give in classical technique, can open infinite doors. My students have composed their own music, learned jazz, and explored Irish flute music and the Cuban charanga. Other students have explored Country, Rock, and even Dubstep (not my thing, but I like keeping an open mind).

I encourage lots of exploration and listening, both curated and free, which I then encourage students to share. My studio explores the length and breadth of the world's music, both ancient and modern, for inspiration -- far beyond ...

About David

I've worked hard to be a flutist, and I continue to work hard every day to grow my technique, my hearing, and my musical imagination: what we call "chops" and "big ears"! My great hope is that I can help my students succeed at something they are passionate about within the musical domain. Personal

David helped my daughter leap from barely any knowledge or sound to sounding like she’d been training for years- in only a few sessions!
Our family was amazed at the immediate progress! David is patient and able to adjust concepts to the child’s level for easy absorption and application. I can say from first hand experience that school music lessons may be fine, but there is no comparison to the one-on-one attention of an expert flutist! Thank you David!
Sabina
David has a great approach to his students and was very helpful with providing additional resources. My daughter really enjoyed lessons with David and we highly recommend his services.

"My dream instructor

When I first heard about Take Lessons and the ability to take guitar lessons over Skype, I was skeptical. Turns out it has been an amazing effective and convenient way for me to learn guitar. At one point I was a very active musician, mostly playing bass guitar, but I had not played a lot in the last 10 years. Eric has been able to expand my knowledge, my dexterity, and just my overall enjoyment of guitar in the few months I have been taking lessons with him. I was always a solid player, but Eric has been able to add a new layer of ability and really increase my skills. I recommend him to anyone who asks me about taking guitar lessons!!"

"An Excellent Source IF YOU REALLY WANT TO LEARN HOW TO SING!

About me: I am an actor, dancer, writer, choreographer…an artist; as well as an acting teacher and coach. It's been a life long dream to sing and sing well. I was cast in the chorus as a kid a couple times, but really had no clue about my voice; how it worked or what to do with it. As far as I knew/experienced I was an average to bad singer, with little to no vocal talent. I thought singing was a "God-given gift". You either had "it" or you didn't. I knew my Dad could sing, but my mom was a terrified singer and somewhat terrifying to hear. I thought I was somewhere in between, like my eyes, half blue, like Mom, half hazel, like Dad. And nothing I could do about it. Until I met Stephen...

About Stephen: Working with Stephen regularly has changed all of this. Stephen doesn't just magically "get you to sing". HE TEACHES YOU HOW YOUR VOICE WORKS. He helps you to develop what he calls "an intimate relationship with YOUR voice". This knowledge literally takes away the mystery and "magic" of singing. He systematically guides you through a very CLEAR PROCESS that unlocks YOUR voice. And he empowers you to become YOUR OWN TEACHER. Stephen has taught me that MY VOICE IS A MUSCLE, JUST LIKE ANY MUSCLE IN MY BODY. That it can be trained, refined and conditioned, just like any muscle in my body. He got me to believe this through my OWN EXPERIENCE that when I put the work in I WILL GET RESULTS. Just like when I work on my physical coordination and strengthening in Ballet class, my jumps and turns improve; getting higher, more precise, faster, lighter, whatever the case may be, when I work with Stephen on my voice, my range grows, the quality of my vocal timbre gets richer and fuller, there's more ring and resonance; EVERYTHING IMPROVES. Stephen's clear technique has given me great confidence in my ability to sing and to continue to improve as a singer. I highly recommend him to anyone, from absolute beginner to pro. I am truly positive you will be happy with the results. And enjoy the process.

About Stephen's Character:
Stephen is a consummate professional. Extremely reliable, respectful and kind. If I had children of my own, I would feel 100% comfortable sending them to him. I have recommended Stephen to several of my own acting students, as well as fellow dancers and strangers on the occasion that the topic arises. Because I believe in his method and I respect and appreciate the way in which he offers his knowledge and embodies his words.

Stephen is Passionate, Inspired and Inspiring when he's sharing his work with his students.You can tell from his conviction, brilliant insights and compassion that he created his method from his own triumphs and failures, breakthroughs and frustrations as a singer and singing student. It seems he's spent his whole life learning what he's now refined into a very clear method that he can impart to ANY eager student in a very short amount of time. I feel very fortunate and thankful to have found such a gifted teacher."
