I have never touched a guitar before, but always imagined myself learning to play so this was excited to begin. Neco is very professional and his lessons were very easy to follow, even with me being busy with other things like (work.) I still am nervous but he is encouraging and even when Its something simple he answers questions with alot of patience. His teaching style is fun and I appreciate it and plan to really continue with my learning!

This is our first experience with guitar lessons and this online tool (takelessons.com). We love everything, so far! As for Necovelli, we couldn't be happier with his teaching methods, professional demeanor, positive attitude, and overall experience. My son has progressed through his initial lessons with confidence and is modeling Neco's great attitude. I started at 30 minutes per lesson and it just isn't enough time to get through all the curriculum - so we just increased to 1-hour lessons. We are very happy and would recommend both Neco and this site to anyone thinking of signing up!

Joshua L.

Glen Burnie, MD

About Joshua

I am an active musician in the Baltimore and Washington area working as a pianist, guitarist, producer, and composer. I am a music director at two churches and spend time gigging, writing, and teaching. I graduated from the university of the arts with a degree in music performance performing in different ensembles from Latin jazz to the school's production of "Porgy and Bess." I have been teaching students of all ages for 3 years now and love working with children. Not only will students learn to read music but will get a great sense of rhythm, balanced theory, and even songwriting for those i
nterested.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a universal language that I believe anyone can get a basic understanding for. I cater my lessons to the individual needs of the student. I am laid back during lessons but wont settle for less than excellent. My goal is to push students beyond what they think is possible of them and let them discover the potential that they have. I do this by usually teaching out of a lesson book and then allowing students to pick a supplement book or even just songs that they want to learn. This way lessons are fun yet the fundamentals are still being driven into their memory. In 6 months new students should have at least built up the confidence that's needed to be good musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a piano of their own or their own guitar. Students have to be able to practice in order to get better. a casio keyboard with 61 keys is just fine too

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I produce and write hip hop, pop, rock music professionally. I went to college and studied jazz performance on piano for 4 years. this included classical as well. I also play gospel on keys and blues on guitar.

Murray P.

Baltimore, MD

About Murray

My musical career started at age 3 when my parents placed a pair of drum sticks in my hands. I started playing drums in church and then progressed to play in middle school where I was part of the jazz band and orchestra. With some very early lessons, I begin to blossom into a skillful drummer. I then continued to play in bands in high school and, in addition, became a member of the Milford Mill Academy Marching Band. In my sophomore year, I became the section leader of the drum line where I played & mastered the snare drum. I have 2 degrees in music theory from Deer Park Magnet school and Morg
an State University. I have performed with many bands from all different musical genres such as gospel, funk, pop, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, reggae, and R&B. In 2004 I became the only drumming instructor at The Psalms of David School Of Music. In 2011 I started and became the principle of the New Antioch Baptist Church School of Music. I have recorded with a variety of musical artists and currently plays full time at the New Antioch Baptist Church of Randallstown. In 2012, I recorded my first DVD entitled, "P.'s Time 2 Groove". Throughout the last 24 years of my drumming career, I still have the passion and fun as if it were day 1. Within the last 14 years, I have taken that same passion for playing and have transferred that energy into all of my students. I welcome all students any age, any skill level. Hope to have you as a new student very soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students will quickly learn the basics of drumming, including: stick control, technique, rhythms, drum fills, and licks. It does not matter if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced drummer. The same time and effort will be exercised. We will have a fun and meaningful time playing, both by ear and by reading music. These lessons will really be hands on using teaching methods such as music books, DVD’s, and playing of my own. Students will have a great time also studying music theory, learning how to assemble the drum set, learning the parts of the drums, how to tune the drums, and how to accompany other musical instruments. After 3 to 6 months taking lessons, all students will be well on their way to a very successful musical career having had such fun and learning to play all different styles of music. My motto: Lets play Good, get Better, and be our Best!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finished basement: (2) drum sets, small studio, recording equipment, seating for students & guest.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring snare and sticks. For the more advance lesson drum kit if one not provided. For the beginners sticks snare and if they already have a drum kit that is fine too.

*** Specialties ***
Gospel, Christan, jazz, blues, rock, R&B, pop, Latin, reggae, funk

This is only my 4th week and I have already decided to continue taking lessons from Murray. His skill, knowledge, teaching style, and enthusiasm has inspired me to practice for SEVERAL hours a week. Murray has not just simply gone through the lesson plan, but has given me some very good suggestions on how to practice more efficiently and gain comfort with new material. I see progress and I look forward to more in the upcoming months.

Jennifer P.

Gwynn Oak, MD

About Jennifer

I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedd
ing bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush estate).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Bodhran · In studio
I've had the privilege of being Randy's Bodhran student. He has a gift for understanding how to construct the lessons around his students abilities so they can grasp the concept and skill needed to move forward in their lessons.

I was very nervous as I had never played any type of drum before but his ability to set his students at ease was apparent from lesson one.

I highly recommend Randy as an instructor.

I met Randy many years ago when he was playing with the Rogues at the MD Renfest. He is a great teacher and taught me some bodhran basics in the little spare time he had between shows. He is very patient and encouraging. If you are interested in learning the bodhran, dumbek, djembe or full kit, I highly recommend that you seek him out.

Being an older student with a different learning curve than younger students, Randy tailored my lessons to meet my special needs. He was patient beyond expectations when I was having trouble grasping a difficult concept. He is a true professional and dedicated to passing on his musical knowledge. I had to stop taking lessons for a while due to a broken arm, but I plan on continuing them in the future.

Introduction to Proper Violin Posture
You may feel that learning the violin is all about playing the right notes at the right time. It is – to an extent. But in order to learn the various techniques and play for longer periods of time, there are other skills that every student needs to master too, and that includes proper violin posture. Because it affects all areas of violin playing, such as tone, intonation, bow hold and stroke, as well as shifting, all violin technique is built around proper violin posture. If you ignore or forg
