Our first lesson with Michael went well. My 7yo son was a little nervous about taking lessons for the first time, but Michael had him playing some notes on the piano and talking soon after we started the lesson. He's looking forward to more lessons with him.
Lena M.
My daughters (8,4) take piano, violin, and voice with Mike, and have for 6+months. Mike is super patient, while teaching not only theory, but also ensuring the girls understand musicality. His style really encourages confidence, and pride in what the girls are able to accomplish. Would highly recommend for anyone looking to take lessons

Derek
I began working with Rob about three years ago.. He is one of the most personable teachers that I have ever worked with. The atmosphere never feels like a teacher/ student situation, but more like two friends who are working together to work toward a common goal. He teaches with compassion and understanding at all times, and is never condescending. His talent, knowledge and skill are immense. As a result, I am studying pieces that I would have thought beyond my range. Very highly recommend him.
Peter
I admire Rob as a singer so much. His tone is so good and he makes live performance look so effortless. I'm not that strong of a singer yet, but we are making progress to improve my tone. He's also teaching me how to deliver a stronger performance using stage presence and movement, as well as voice. It helps that he has a great ear for pitch too, so I know when I am singing well. He's encouraging as well as honest, and I look forward to showing off my improved skills sometime soon!

Rob is one of the most talented and gifted people I've ever worked with. He's patient, kind, and is incredibly personable. You won't find a better teacher.

Learning to play the violin doesn't have to be a task. I believe conquering a musical instrument is as much about love as it is dedication. I wouldn't be where I am today without the love and support of my teachers throughout the years. With my teaching, I intend to instill great technical facility as well as a love and respect for the instrument. (Students must provide their own violin)

I could not recommend her enough!!!! Pepina has made re-learning the violin easy and stress free! She is very patient and a great teacher. I played as a young child and wanted to relearn as an adult. I was very intimidated and nervous about re-learning. However, with the help of Pepina it has been enjoyable and very fun!

Pepina was direct and very clearly communicated what she wanted me to do. She told me when I was doing things right and helped me when I was doing things wrong.

I️ was connected to Rod through a tutoring agency. I️ contacted the agency because I️ recently graduated college and wanted to get into grad school but had not taken a math class since the 10th grade. The school I️ was applying to needed a minimum math score for the GRE, which I️ knew would be a enormous stretch for me. Additionally, I️ always had trouble with math and knew I️ would need a tutor to re-teach me everything I️ needed to know to get the score I️ wanted. Initially, the agency connected me to 3 different tutors who were all absolutely terrible! Sometimes they didn’t even know how to answer sample questions in the workbooks! Finally, I was connected to Rod. After our first meeting I️ knew he would be the one who would help me improve. After a month of intense work with him my GRE math scores actually improved a full 12 points! Beyond that, he literally taught me math in a way in which I️ actually understood it. Before I️ just thought I couldn’t learn, but now I’m confident that I️ actually retained everything and it even made sense! I’m so grateful to have met Rod because before him I️ truly felt hopeless. I️ would definitely recommend Rod to anyone who is looking to drastically improve their math skills. If you’re like me and hate math, can’t grasp it, and even feel like you just can’t learn it, then definitely contact Rod now! You won’t be sorry!
Jennifer K.
I initially reached out to Rod for Algebra 1 review because I felt that my daughter lacked a solid foundation in algebra. However, after a couple of sessions, we have decided to switch gears toward geometry with Rod’s recommendation. Throughout the geometry lessons, algebra practice was incorporated. I am happy that not only did Rod tailor his lessons to my daughter’s goals but also he gave her a lot of encouragement. My daughter found it extremely helpful that she got to explain and discuss with Rod, which made lessons interactive and real learning. Now going back to school, my daughter feels confident, thanks to Rod!

"Thank you, Vanessa Pace!

THANK YOU, VANESSA!

A year ago when I was shopping for a voice teacher, Take Lessons provided a wide selection of viable options. As a senior adult, I was feeling a need to clarify my "Call" in life, and to return to some of the personal strengths that I hope to continue using in the last 1/3 of my life. In my profile I indicted I was looking to maintain the voice that has been a part of every aspect of my life from theatre to singing, to preaching, to creating radio spots. When I mentioned that goal to Vanessa in our first meeting she countered: “We won’t just maintain it, we’ll restore it!” What a confidence booster that was!

Although my life work mostly involves speaking, I also have a love of singing—something I have participated in one way or another for the last 50 years. I wanted to overcome the “old lady” vibrato syndrome if possible and to be able to sing without concern that those within earshot would shudder.

In addition, I was looking for certain attributes in a teacher:
• A person who is at my stage of life or beyond.
• A person who is knowledgeable in both singing and speech.
• A person with a personal teaching style that is positive and encouraging.

ENTER VANESSA PACE!

Vanessa is confident and knowledgeable. In addition, she has customized my learning program to suit my current objectives, which have changed from one week to the next depending upon my professional assignments from work and my personal creative pursuits.

In this year Vanessa brought me to a point of “breaking through” inhibitions and moving beyond what I thought I’d be able to do. Her constant use of cues to put me on track with the use of my voice has been invaluable! She compared letting sound pass through the vocal cords (without strain) in the same way breath becomes music through a clarinet. Using words like “Pull up your spine—you’re two inches taller!”; and reminders to draw on the strength of (underused) larger muscles to support the efforts of diaphragm have been helpful in numerous practical matters of everyday life.

Vanessa is inspiring in that she is a life-long learner and passionate about things to the degree that she invests in them with intelligent research, attention to science, and a spiritual passion that drives her to draw out the best in her students in similar fashion.

If you are looking for a voice teacher, Vanessa will work with you where you are--and help you move toward the goal of where you are hoping to be.

I am thanking God this Thanksgiving Season for Vanessa Pace.

~ Ann Thomas"
