Karen S. Wilmington, DE

About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. I have studied piano with Gisa Adler at New School of Music in Philadelphia, PA. I taught public school in the Conestoga Valley School District in Lancaster County, PA and I have taught private piano for over ten years. I love music and I love teaching - seeing my students progress and reach their goals. I believe music should be a pleasant experience and a demanding and ill - spirited teacher can ruin a student. I am NOT one of these. You will find me patient and supportive. *** Lesson Details *** To be an accomplished pianist you must learn all the basics well. These include music symbology which enables you to read music so you can translate it into the sound on the piano. In order to ...

Barbara N. Brookhaven, PA

About Barbara

I have been singing for as long as I can remember. It is my very favorite activity. I have transformed my love of singing into a career. I have been teaching music lessons for over 25 years. When you study with me you will have the advantage of that experience. I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with varied backgrounds and diverse needs. If you are a person who was told not to sing by your music teacher, don't give up! I have taught many children and adults to match pitches and improve their singing voices. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Moravian College and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Temple University. While at Temple, I studied standard vocal repertoire and ...

Alexis explains technique in a way that is at once immediately understandable and easy to implement. I've only had a few lessons with her and I'm already noticing a huge improvement. I would highly recommend her as a voice teacher to anyone at any level.

Alexis has been a wonderful private vocal instructor for my son who is currently a middle school student. She is professional, versatile, helpful, flexible and extremely encouraging as a teacher and mentor. Alexis believes that her students need a solid musical foundation; she is willing to spend time teaching the basics in order to assure her students know how to read music. She has been able to help my son grasp and learn music theory concepts that were sometime challenging in his music theory class at school. Alexis has also worked diligently with my son on musical theatre audition preparation which prepared him and ultimately earned him lead roles in a few musical theatre productions. Alexis is very versatile and is able to teach many types of musical and vocal styles from classical, to Broadway – musical theatre and to popular music, etc. She worked with my son and helped him gain confidence to participate as a vocal soloist for his school’s talent show. I also love the fact that Alexis can see the growth in her student’s after they have worked hard in their private lessons; she offers them advice and encouragement and often recommends new opportunities for the student to try such as auditioning for All State Choirs. Alexis is also very flexible and will work with you in instances where you need to change, reschedule or cancel your vocal lessons. This flexibility is greatly needed and appreciated as a busy parent who may have to change the schedule due to personal conflicts or work commitment. But, the best endorsement that I can give for Alexis is that my son trust, believes in and likes Alexis as a teacher and as a person and as a parent, I don’t think you can ask for too much more!

As a violin teacher, I am impressed by his ability to work with a variety of age groups and skill levels. He relates well to children and brings joy and humor to every lesson, while explaining the mechanics and the physics behind the technical aspect of music to more mature students.

I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who has a desire to learn the violin and a passion for music!

My nine year old daughter enjoys her lessons with Miss Reynolds. She said today, "The violin lesson is so fun." The Skype method through Take Lessons makes violin possible again-flexible, affordable and available. Miss Reynolds know how to guide us (example if the violin goes out of tune) and teach my daughter just at her level and keep her challenged just right. Perfect!

I had my reservations of having my 9 yo daughter learn violin online, but the experience has been wonderful. Elicia is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. She is able to get across what is needed with ease. My daughter is excited to have her lessons and also practice daily.
