About Summer
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.
 
Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition. I place a great emphasis on learning repertoire from a variety of genres of music.
 
Students will have the opportunity to share what they learn at spring and winter recitals and to participate in group lessons on a regular basis.



I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, music th
eory, and ear training to students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, including students with special needs. 
 
I am currently completing my Masters degree at University of California, Irvine. Prior to my graduate studies, I was based in New York City, where I ran a private music studio, performed throughout the city with my jazz quintet, and worked as an accompanist and musical director. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering.



Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Summer is fantastic. We first had her as an in-home instructor in Manhattan, and now that she has moved to California, we have her online. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about music, has introduced the kids to different genres, music theory and online music practice apps to keep them engaged and learning. She gives them homework "listening assignments" to help develop their ear for music. The kids have grown so much in their love of music and their ability to sight-read, play and understand music theory.

Summer is the best! She has taught my children throughout their middle childhood into their teens and during this time has introduced them to many different genres of music, which they have particularly enjoyed. In that way, she has not only taught them to play the piano excellently but has instilled in them an appreciation for music. In addition to being super-nice, patient, open-minded and very well organized, she challenges her students ceaselessly and pushes them to reach their potential. She employs a variety of different teaching methods and adjusts her style to the learner in front of her. My children related to her extremely well and they loved her.
Highly recommend

Summer is one of the best piano teachers I ever had. She makes learning piano really fun and is extremely patient with her students. It was sometimes a challenge taking lessons on a consistent basis due to my work schedule but we always managed to get around it somehow. I really enjoyed my lessons and feel that they have helped improve my skills tremendously. Thanks Summer!!

About Chris
Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and personally. In addition to teaching singing and acting for over 10 years I have performed in numerous Broadway shows, West End shows, and National Tours throughout the US and Canada. I am presently a working actor. I received my education from the University of Michigan's School of Music. Whether you are a first time singer/actor or an established professional I love students who are excited to absorb new ideas and attempt to grow in ways they hadn't thought possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are unique to each individual. I tend to cater
my lesson plan to each students goals, experience, and age. I believe that there is no one way to teach or one way to learn. Trying numerous exercises and coming up with creative ways to help students assimilate new material and concepts is a core part of my teaching philosophy. Above all learning should be fun and exciting. I will do my best to create a safe open atmosphere where a student of any age level can succeed in achieving their learning goals.

Musical Theatre is my passion and my forte, however in order to teach singing or acting proper technique must be established.

Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

About Brandon
What do Britney Spears and Beethoven have in common?

They're both pop music! One just happens to be 200 years old.

Berklee College of Music graduate from Boston, MA with a passion for all genres, though mainly popular music. For me, music has always been about having fun and doing what feels natural, and I try to pass this on to my students.

In all seriousness, if it's not fun, why do it?

I'm super laid back, but I refuse to let you spend your money, or someone else's, on lessons like it's going out of style. I believe that the more fun you have with music, the more you'll want to play, and as a result, the better a musician you will become.

*** Lesson Details ***
During the first lesson, we will create a clear goal and purpose for your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to what YOU need in order to achieve your
goal.

Every student has a different motivation for taking lessons. Whether you simply want to show off for that special someone or you're trying to get into an elite music school, it is my objective to get you there with a smile on your face.

Want to learn the top ten guitar solos of all time? And nothing else? Just say so!
Want to learn piano theory until you're dizzy? We can do that too!
Always wanted to play drums but think you're too uncoordinated? No such thing!

Or, maybe you're already a polished musician lacking the theory to get another degree - no matter what your motivation may be, together we can make it happen.

You don't have to listen to a specific type of music to be a real musician. Yes, believe it or not, Britney Spears is a musician too! We'll work on the types of music YOU enjoy, not the stuff your parents, friends, or coworkers consider 'good' music.

Whether you want to learn Justin Bieber or Rachmaninoff, it's cool with me - believe it or not, the two have something in common...don't believe me? I'll prove it!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in online music lessons. I have an extensive background in computers and technology, and incorporate a lot of unique tools to my online lessons to greatly improve the user's experience, such as multiple camera angles; picture-in-picture views; displaying sheet music on your screen and being able to highlight, point, and change pages for you; as well as interactive games similar to Rock Band that I control on my end as the student participates on their end.

I teach all styles, though my interests are mainly in pop, electronic, rock/hard rock/classic rock, metal, and classical.

*********************************************************************************
PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING LESSONS:

- All students must meet at least once a week.
- Cancellations are allowed once every three months.
- Rescheduling is always allowed and requires at least 24 hours notice.
- Rescheduled lesson must occur within two weeks.

Brandon is an excellent instructor with not only a really keen insight into how music works, but also the ability to tailor and relay that information effectively to the student according to his or her needs. That is a rare trait among musicians. He's a really cool person to learn from and paces each lesson nicely so that you don't even notice that your lesson time is up! With Brandon, you'll improve your ability to understand music dramatically. Sign up! You won't regret it.

Her lessons are truly engaging and productive and she can communicate the information in a way that is easy to understand. She so very patient and encouraging while also inspiring excellence in her students. She keeps the lessons fun and interesting by spending some time each week on playing duets, sight-reading and learning a variety of musical styles. Her own incredible musical talent is an inspiration and her enthusiasm is contagious!

About Allie
Allie is a singer-songwriter, recording artist, actress and performer with no shortage of personality and enthusiasm. She has performed on stages all across the Wasatch Front. She is a Member of BYU Noteworthy, a professional touring acapella group from Brigham Young University. She has been training with Dean Kaelin, who is vocal coach of many famous artists such as: David Archuleta, Carmen Rassmussen, Julianne Hough, Fictionist and SHeDAISY, for more than 7 years. She was also trained classically by Glory Vance and Julianne Betenson. She received specific "Broadway Style" instruction from Erin Carlson.
Most recently, she released a music video in Mayan,Spanish and English language that reached more than 170,000 views. She's all about providing uplifting material and teaching her students how to truly move and change people through mus
ic.

Allie teaches both in-home and online classes, however, only the online classes are available through Takelessons.com in person lessons must be arranged personally.

Here's the basic outline of what you can expect:
Before we ever begin with your lessons we will do a vocal evaluation. We will see what areas you would like to strengthen vocally. We'll set some goals and completely customize your lessons to you and your needs.

A basic lesson goes as follows:
* Warm Up
* Learn new skills
*Apply skills in YOUR choice of style and music.

We have one voice. just like a piano can play many different styles of music, your voice can do the same if you train it properly. you should be able to sing with the same vocal quality all the way through your range without having breaks. We will work on smoothing out your range so that singing becomes EFFORTLESS. Once your singing becomes effortless, you will be free to express yourself, and get the message of your music across to your audiences. Successful music is connection to people. When you can deliver your message unhindered by vocal blips-- you will be an amazing artist!! :)

i'm so excited to work with you!

Allie <3

Allie Gardner epitomizes the future of helping others through music. As a wonderful performer with great excitement and conviction, as well as sensitivity and attention to detail, she regularly uplifts her audiences through her impressive musical abilities. She stands out as an accomplished recording artist, arranger, actress, violinist, and guitarist. Through her breadth of vocal techniques, she has the ability to successfully instruct others in the classical, pop, and musical theater genres. Additionally, her wonderful friendship to others, her dedication to excellence, and her excitement for life qualify her as a capable private vocal instructor. I have confidence in the force of good she will be as teacher and performer for years to come.

Allie is seriously the best! Not only is she an incredible performer but she knows how to teach her craft. I've had voice lessons before where the teacher didn't know how to translate technique to a student level. But Allie totally knows where you're coming from! She just gets it and that's so hard to find. Honestly, I'd get on her books ASAP before she runs out of space for more students!!

About Valeria
I am a professional violinist. I have a Bachelors Degree in Music with a violin specialization and Musical Pedagogy.
Violin students can expect to improve week to week in their skills and technique. It is important to be consistent with violin classes; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with expression, intonation, and confidence.
I cannot wait to start with our lessons!
I teach violin students of all different ages. I studied classical violin for 19 years, and popular for 5 years. I am qualified to teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play popular music whether the student prefers a music sheet to read while they are playing or memorize it, depending on the student's goals
and choice.
I have performed in a Chamber Orchestra for ten years. I have toured South America and the Caribbean. I also have performed as a soloist in different ensembles and Orchestras with a vast repertoire.
My personal passion is for classical, popular, pop and rock music, it is important to understand that an accurate technique is essential to all music styles.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you to improve and become a better musician and performer in every class!

My 10 year old daughter has now been taking violin lessons online with Valeria for almost a year (once a week for half the year, and now twice a week). Valeria is amazingly patient with her, but also challenges her to push herself ever farther, and gently holds her to high expectations. They work on multiple aspects, writing the notes, singling along to the music to get the beat of it, proper posture, bowing technique, etc. She works with my daughter to select some pieces that are growth pieces and some that my daughter is interested in playing. They have developed a wonderful rapport.

Valeria is also super flexible and easy to work with - she's been understanding when we needed to reschedule lessons and great at communicating with me about simple things like logistics and also about my daughter's progress. I very highly recommend her!

I began teaching in-home lessons to K-12 and adult students in 2010. Since then I have:
1) Taught thousands of fun and engaging lessons to over 150 students
2) Helped high school students attain successful college music auditions
3) Had students on saxophone AND clarinet place successfully in All-State and All-County Honors Bands and Gifted and Talented Ensembles

Whether your student is excelling and wants new musical challenges to stay engaged or you think they could enjoy music but are struggling to keep up, I have experience with that situation. I am a passionate performer myself, and I released my debut jazz album in early 2018. I truly believe that music is one of the greatest sources of joy in the world.

I highly recommend Julian as a saxophone teacher. My son started playing saxophone and taking lessons with Julian three years ago, when my son was 9 years old. Julian is patient with my son and has built a good rapport with him. Julian has always encouraged him to try his best and to not be discouraged when he makes mistakes, and that has made my son comfortable with Julian and confident enough to push himself. Also, Julian is reliable and punctual, and is good at communicating through text and email.

About Joshua
My name is Joshua Ballard. I’m currently making online music courses from home for a company called Lernsys. I have a B.A. in Music Education with Highest Honors. I've been teaching for 10 years. I've directed, taught, and sang for multiple churches. I worked as an Assistant Choir Director at Tascosa High School for 3 years before I have the job I do now.
I'm looking for private piano and voice students any age. I prefer to teach at my home, but I'm open to coming to you. Please contact me if you’re interested!
My Personal Bio:
My beautiful wife tells me that she loves my passion for people. I live my life striving to make everyone I meet better for having met me. I teach music because caring about the people in the world means communicating effectively with everyone. To do that we need a Universal language, and music fills that role. I
believe that in order to make the world a better place we need to be in touch with other people in profound, creative ways. Working as an online teacher has provided me that chance. Through them I can fulfill my philosophy by reaching hundreds or thousands of people across the world.
I consider it a privilege and an honor to work for my students. My experience teaching has proven that this vocation comes with heavy responsibilities, therefore I take my job very seriously. I'm extremely motivated to producing high quality courses. I teach music in a way that's comprehensive, interesting, and rewarding. We can't ignore that Science has proven that the nature of music instills deep-seated, virtuous core values like self-discipline and a high self-esteem. Music will also improve a student's performance in other subjects, especially in mathematics and reading.
Music is a lifelong skill that should be accessible to everyone. My calling is to give my all to make it so. If you feel a calling to become a professional musician, don't feel discouraged from it! In today's world you can find a fulfilling, lifelong career in music. I hope you will entrust me to teaching you music, and I promise, if you do, you will not regret it!
