She is outstanding. I am very impressed with her teaching my daughter violin.

It was a great first day. My child felt motivated by her teacher

Cara is the best music teacher we've ever met. My daughter Amanda (now 6 years old) started learning piano from her 8 months ago. Before that Amanda learned piano for 1 year but didn't have good progress. Now, Not only can Amanda play piano very well, but also she can play violin well for 5 variations of Twinkle Twinkle, after only 9 violin classes from Cara. The most important thing is: Amanda is falling love with the music, which I believe will benefit her whole life. In our opinion, experience, fun, discipline and child-centered are the key to Cara's teaching success. We have met with her husband (a retired band director), and two daughters (both professional violinists), we can feel their love to the music and really admire their music skill.

Our friends thought we were crazy when they knew the fact that we need to drive 60 minutes single trip to take the weekly lesson, but after they see Amanda playing piano and violin, they think it well deserves it.

Cara is the best music teacher for kids in Metro-Orlando area. If you want your kid to fall in love with music, she is your best choice. Go Cara!

Brian is one of the teachers that sticks with you for the rest of your life. He cares about his students and is an excellent teacher. He started me on a journey that had me playing euphonium for years after he moved.
Hunter
Brian is the reason I began to take tuba seriously and I am 100% certain that I wouldn’t be half the musician I am today if it weren’t for him. I took tuba lessons from in high school and he was great at challenging and pushing to get better and better every single lesson we had. I strongly recommend anyone who has the chance to study with him to please take it.
Nick
I took tuba lessons from Brian for a few years, and I highly recommend him. He is an excellent and passionate music educator. He is great at keeping students challenged and motivated, and he has a cheerful and fun personality. Thanks to Brian's help, I made first chair All-State tuba, won a couple of soloist competitions, and was accepted to multiple colleges for music performance. With those kinds of results, I wholeheartedly recommend Brian for private music lessons.

I’ve always struggled with math. It was no surprise that I had significant trouble with the GRE Quantitive section. I had tried one tutor before working with Daniel. I ended up getting the same score that I had on past tests and I felt that I was never going to get past the hurdle. I decided to find another tutor and after looking around a while and messaging several tutors on TakeLessons I connected with Daniel. Hands down he has the best methods for how I learn. He provides lesson plans, homework, and goes through every problem step by step to ensure that you are comprehending. He also tests your knowledge by having you basically teach him what you’ve learned. If you can’t explain it, then you don’t know it, is what he says. It has been awesome working with him and I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone that needs help with math at any level.

"I'm very grateful to have had Frankie as an instructor. He taught me how to be a better musician in addition to teaching me how to play the guitar. I understand so much more about music, composition, playing in ensembles, among other aspects of making music thanks to him. He was always patient with me and found ways to make me excited about playing everyday-even if my assignments were practicing difficult chords or scales. Truly a fantastic musician and leader."

"Very Comprehensive

So after my first lesson with Rob I have to say it left a pretty good impression on me. Pretty good vibes coming from him and he makes the material relatively easy to understand. He takes the time to really assess what it is you're aiming for and doesn't try to impose his own values into your musical style. All in all I feel that this is going to be a great teacher student relationship and I'm looking forward to really delving into mastering my guitar with him."

"His resume and experience speaks for itself. Steven is well informed. I had an audition to prepare for in just 3 weeks and I've never felt confident that I would ace it and leave the judges in spades. I learned the importance of vowels, dip thongs, having a steady tongue that's out of the way for proper air flow and so much more. You want to be good, put your money where your mouth is. This is the guy for you. He's a bit pricey but he's worth EVERY penny and you get what you pay for."

Very thorough teacher with lots of patience and a great passion for music. My daughter was playing one of her favorite songs in no time.

"Michelle was a FANTASTIC instructor! :) I had a really hard time choosing instructors but I am so glad I picked her. Without much prior singing experience, I auditioned and made it into the fifth best choir in the world but I couldn’t have done it without Michelle‘s help! People in the choir were surprised that I was auditioning in without having been in a chorus before. She really knows what she’s talking about and is encouraging and uses every minute of the lessons wisely. I can’t believe how much I improved in just five lessons! Definitely would recommend Michelle!"

"Claudio is a superb teacher! After being with the same teacher for the last 3 years we noticed that our 10 year old daughter was not very motivated to continue learning music and playing the piano. We decided to switch to Claudio and we are glad that we did (we even extended her lesson time). He does a lot of positive reinforcing and is excellent at teaching on different aspects: technique/posture, note reading and ear training. He also combines different sources (apps, webpages,...) to add variety to lessons and home practice. Overall, our daughter really likes going to piano lessons with Claudio and her motivation is way up."

The Ins and Outs of Cadences for Piano Players

What are piano cadences, and how are they used? Learn the ins and outs in this guest post by Manassas, VA teacher Carol K...   When I first decided to tackle the word “cadence,” I thought to myself – “What exactly do I think of when I hear that word?” For me, the word implies an ending, or rhythmic inflection of sound, like the modulation of the voice in reading or speaking. This article will examine, in greater detail, what a cadence means to musicians, the types of caden …
