I hired Stephanie to work with me at Lynn Middle School as a woodwind technician for one semester, Spring 2012. Stephanie was always punctual, organized, and outstanding with the kids. She immediately set up a fun and safe environment for them to learn. Her work was excellent. We were preparing for our district Music Performance Assessment Festival and received Superior ratings. I have no doubt we owe part of that rating to her hard work. She really goes above and beyond, on one occasion I had to miss my afternoon classes for jury duty and she ran rehearsal without any problems. I wish we still had Stephanie in our district. I highly recommend her.

Joannah B. Boston, MA

About Joannah

Music has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. In the evenings after listening to my mother teach piano lessons to a studio full of students, I would climb into her lap and beg her to teach me to play the piano. I eagerly soaked up everything that she taught me, enthralled by this incredible language of music. I continued studying piano with my mom all the way through high school, adding much-anticipated voice lessons in high school as well. We came from such a small town that we had to travel two hours round trip for my weekly voice lessons. As an undergraduate student at Willamette University in Oregon, I launched into further piano and voice studies earning a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. I began teaching seriously in the spring of ...

I was a beginner when I started working with Joannah. She met me at my level and crafted lessons that were just challenging enough to gently push me outside of my comfort zone; I progressed quickly as a result. She encouraged me to “be brave” when singing. Her encouragement coupled with her infinite patience created a safe space for me to learn.

Joannah is a gifted instructor. Time with her is well spent.

Joannah has been a wonderful teacher for my seven year old daughter. She is enthusiastic, patient, and full of ideas to make the lessons fun and informative. My daughter's playing has come along nicely. She worked with me through a bumpy patch (as can be the case with new young students) to keep my daughter involved and enthusiastic and now she really looks forward to her lesson each week. I'm very pleased and would recommend Joannah to anyone!

Classical Voice · In studio
I am happy to recommend Joannah as a voice teacher. At the urging some years ago of my two daughters (then in their teens), I started singing in my church choir. I had not sung in a choir since my teenage years. At some point one of my daughters noted that I was straining to reach certain notes and wondered if I was using the proper voice techniques. I knew nothing about such things, but, serendipitously, I had come to know Joannah, who had just begun offering private voice lessons, so I signed up. In just six or eight lessons one summer, she taught me how to stand, how to breathe, and myriad other singing techniques I had never known about. She was a joy to work with, and those few weeks greatly enhanced my pleasure in singing. I heartily recommend her.

Christopher S. Jamaica Plain, MA

About Christopher

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music. In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...

Tegan is a lovely young woman with great skills in teaching children music theory and piano for beginners. Two of our children are currently taking lessons and both are thrilled with Tegan. She is patient, kind, a master at her art and very entertaining while creating a constructive, fun atmosphere for children.

Tegan is very prompt - and her focus on teaching is evident from the moment she sits at the piano. This is our first experience with TakeLessons but definitely not our last thanks to Tegan. She is an asset and a joy to be around. We will definitely continue our class' with her - she is the perfect choice for our family.

I've only had two 2 hour sewing lessons so far with Tegan (I plan on taking more) and I am already showing a great deal of improvement and have a lot more confidence in my sewing. Tegan is super helpful and knowledgeable. She shows a deep understanding of sewing because she knows multiple different ways and techniques on how to approach a task and explains why, how, and what the outcome will be. She is patient and makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed which is sometimes hard to do when you're learning something new. I would totally recommend her to anyone new to sewing! Overall my experience has been great :)
