Russell took the time to observe and gauge my baseline to fit the lesson to my individual skill and need. He was informative, balanced, and is a great drummer himself. He articulates well so it is clear what the aim is.
James
I look forward to the lessons every week. Russ takes the time an ensures that the information provided is understood as well as performed correctly. Homework is always a blast. How many times can anybody say that? I would recommend Russ to any level of performer, if just to sharpen exisiting skills or start from the very beginning, Russ has the ability to get you to the level "you" want to be at with your drum playing. Russ will also introduce books that can be practiced out of when that homework is assigned. Great instructor and as become a good friend. If you want to learn the drums....call Russ!
Frank W.
Russell is the man! Patient, attentive, precise and an outstanding professional with a passion to teach you proper technique and to help you reach your drumming goals! He is an Awesome teacher and musician!

About Kiah

Never say “I can’t.” Change that phrase to “I don’t have the skills yet.” You do not have to be naturally talented to be good at something. Start where you’re at and never stop practicing! I’ve been playing piano and flute for over a decade, and have been singing since high school. I studied at S

I was very nervous when I first started singing lessons, thinking I'm too old for this. Kiah made me feel comfortable and encouraged me to practice, and I could see results from her guidance very quickly. She's friendly and very adaptable, and I wish I could continue my lessons with her!

Ms. Bryner is an absolutely awesome piano teacher. She is highly talented and is wonderful in teaching Piano to young children. She is very friendly and engages naturally with the kids.

Kiah is super! She knows so much, is super friendly, and really warm. I worked with her as a fellow teacher at a music school in Washington state, and I often asked her for advice. She taught me many techniques and gave me advice that I implemented in classes with my students. I also learned from her myself. I saw her students advance really quickly; it was impressive. I can only recommend her! Best of luck in Florida, Kiah!

Piano class is an exciting and informative introduction to piano and music skills for beginning to intermediate level music students in grades Kindergarten through Adult. The goal of the course is not only to develop a solid musical foundation in piano which will greatly assist in the future pursuit of any musical instrument in any style, but most importantly to instill in the student an understanding of how music is put together and thereby yield a sense of appreciation and mastery, even of little accomplishments, which build upon one another to greater accomplishments.

Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and classic piano repertoire. Class size varies from 2 to 3 students (with the possibility of expansion) with group activities as well as one-on-one instruction. I have found that a group atmosphere is often more beneficial and enjoyable for beginning to intermediate level students because they are ...

I have had a wonderful experience studying piano with Tamari. She is an enthusiastic teacher making the lesson not only rewarding but also joyful. We had to go virtual because of Covid-19 and Tamari spent a lot of time getting all of us familiarized with virtual lessons. She is very dedicated, patient, caring, has a warm personality and she really enjoys teaching.

Hi Everyone,
I’d like to tell all about what a wonderful experience I’m having with Tamari as my piano teacher.
First about me. I’m a 70 year old male with virtually no hands-on music experience or knowledge (other than listening). My parents forced me to take piano music lessons 60+ years ago which I totally resisted. Playing piano was a sissy thing and after a few months they gave up.
For the past 50 years I regretted my youthful error. So when I had the chance to take a piano/keyboard class from Tamari, through OLLI at Uconn I jumped at the chance.
Tamari started the first class totally prepared. Not only did she have startup handouts geared to beginner level students. She also came with extension cords and power outlet strips so all could set up comfortably. Right away we (9) were playing notes and learning. Tamari gave us terrific learning tips (beyond Every Good Boy Does Fine) to make grasping lessons much easier.
Sadly, the Virus hit, and self-isolation became the norm. So Tamari set up her classes through the ZOOM video conferencing software. Wonderfully, a fun learning experience.
One example from yesterday. Tamari helped me learn that just playing the notes , G A G C B by pecking at the keys isn’t music. There’s a certain rhythm needed to make the sound correct and enjoyable. And after, patiently, staying with me, turn after turn, I got it right. Bravo to her and me.
Let me wrap this up by saying, I couldn’t be happier or more satisfied with Tamari as my Piano teacher.
Ralph A Famiglietti.
Anna C.
Tamari is a remarkably accommodating teacher. Uses instructional strategies that are effective and appropriate. Also, presents new material clearly and logically. Demonstrates enthusiasm and interest in lesson presentation. My daughter loves learning classical piano with Tamari.

"If I had to pick all over again, I would still choose Michelle! I can't think of anything she could do to improve. She is smart, funny, bubbly, positive, and very flexible with schedules. She could teach any age and any range of ability without making the student feel humiliated. In fact, she is very good at building confidence and you can tell she ENJOYS teaching and singing. She is also very caring. I originally purchased the lessons for my daughter (20) who is interested in theater, but just for fun (and as a Christmas present), we did the first few lessons together. I am in charge of our church youth band, so I continued my lessons as I discovered there really is so much to learn. I have never been able to reach high notes, so I've learned how to breathe and even get well past my normal B-flat high note. I never knew there were so many places for sound to reverberate, so I guess you could say I am finding my voice. I am a reading specialist, so I recognize quality instruction. My daughter and I love her so much that my 22-year old son wanted to take lessons as well. He is a piano performance major at UNT and appreciates good teachers who are also good musicians. We all three highly recommend her. I would give her more stars if I could! The Take Lessons website is also very well organized and I haven't had a bit of trouble with it, despite the fact that I've had to rearrange my lessons quite often. Thanks for everything, Michelle!"

Just For the Trill of It: 4 Cool Things to Try With the Violin

To the uneducated, the idea of playing the violin might not have the same mass appeal as, say, shredding on an electric guitar or rocking out on the drums. Some people might even think of classical orchestras as old-fashioned and stuffy.  But in reality, the violin is far from boring! With the emergence of styles like hip hop violin music, stringed instruments are getting their spotlight in mainstream music more than ever.  And as you continue your studies, you'll learn there are definitely …
