James B.

Book Now

I normally use the Standard of Excellence method books for many of my students; however, I am open minded to adjusting to each individual student's musical needs, whether it be Jazz, Classical, or whatever style music the student is focusing on. Other excellent methods are the Ed Sueta Book, Rubank Method, Breeze Easy, Achievement in Excellence, and perhaps the First Division Method Book. For Drummers, I prefer the Haskell Harr Method, or the Buddy Rich Method Book, as well as the Breeze Easy Method. I always play my instrument along with the student so that he/she can hear how the music is supposed to be played in regards to the notes as well as the rhythm! This way, we all have fun learning!

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

More than simply helping students "play the correct notes", I help students understand music as a type of language; I endevear to teach students how to be expressive and communicative. This perspective stems from my educational background. Not only do I have a master's degree in piano performance but also a PhD in music theory, an area of study that seeks to understand the grammar of music, how it "works".

About Nikolas

I have a doctorate in music theory that I earned from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. While there, I taught a majority of the undergraduate music theory courses. I also have a master's degree in piano performance that I earned at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. I have be

Great piano teacher with lots of patience! Our boys have taken from Nik and have learned how to become independent at figuring out difficult music concepts in order to become life long piano players. Nik is always so patient and encouraging.
Sidney
Amazing teacher, teaches music theories and great at understanding your mistakes. If you have a question about anything he would take time to chat with you to explain!
Kate
Nik has been teaching my younger brother and I for a while now, and I believe that he is a great teacher to work with. He helped my brother, who had no prior experience at playing piano, learn at a surprisingly rapid pace. Nik is a very patient person but definitely does not waste time. I can also see that he is very passionate in this field and likes to teach us more than just reading and playing. He slips in some music theory here and there and also tries to help us understand music at a deeper level, which is very interesting. He always keeps the mood up at every lesson, and I could see that he would be great with younger kids as well. We are about to try online lessons with him for the first time this week, so we’ll see how that goes.

I am a professional cellist with years of performing and teaching.
I attended the Jacobs School of Music for my undergraduate and masters' degrees and was a graduate teaching assistant. I also received my Stott Pilates Teaching Certification while at IU and incorporate postural alignment into my teaching. I have Suzuki certification and work on a strong technical foundation, which both facilitates performing and frees us up to explore non-traditional techniques and other genres.

Most importantly, I strive to nurture the love and passion for music and cello and I am here to help you achieve your musical goals.

About Maria

I teach cellists of all ages and abilities and tailor the lesson to the individual. Lessons include standard repertoire, and if requested, non-traditional styles as well. I have experience with solo repertoire, orchestra, chamber music, and folk music, and can help you develop your ear and even sin

"I have been taking violin lessons with Ha-eun for a couple of months now and I am very excited to be working with her. It is a real pleasure. She is very educated/talented musically and is very patient with me. She works with students of varying music levels. I have some music experience both through school and through previous violin lessons years ago when I was younger. We began working where I left off. Her lessons are very organized and they consist of 2 components, both a music theory component and a technical component where I learn how to hold the violin/bow correctly. During my first lesson, she had the patience to tune my violin (despite the cold winter which can really affect violin sound/make tuning hard), set my shoulder rest properly on the violin and set the "No fret" violin finger board tape which can take a while. I really enjoy taking lessons with her and I anticipate working with her for a long time moving forward in my violin education. It is with no hesitation and no reservation that I recommend Ha-Eun for new students as well as those wanting to go back to learning the violin like me. She has a very positive attitude and is very patient when I have difficulty learning anything. I'm very happy I found her on TakeLessons and I look forward to many many more lessons with her!"

"Music is such a huge part of my world, and after touring many years ( 15+) I landed here at age of 32 writing a review which I would only do and only will do if i feel its something I need to share. Stephanie has shown me a world that I hadn't had many footprints on before I reached out to her for voice lessons. Talented is an understatement, her approach to teaching voice is incredible, the ability to adapt to each person, describe and demonstrate. Not to mention her patience ( dealing with me ) in a way that has finally made sense giving my last attempt to really give it my all to learn how to share my soul not only through guitar but now the VOICE..
Some amazing singers may not teach, some amazing teachers may not sing Stephanie you have a god given talent to do both.... stay in your magic!"
