Christian was very careful as I knew nothing about music. He explained the guitar’s basic function in language that I can understand. I am more enthusiastic about playing than I thought possible.
Braylon C.
A great instructor. Very patient with my son who has never touched a piano before. Very knowledgeable about all types of music and different instruments. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for lessons.
Emmett S.
My son Emmett is always excited to spend time with Christian! Each lesson is well organized and they cover a lot of material focusing both on skills and fun items. Technology part of things can be challenging but Christian each weeks puts the time in to make the experience better for all of us. We are having a wonderful time and learning a lot.

Over my 20 years of playing trumpet professionally, I have picked up enough trombone to offer quite a lot to trombone students! I believe the fundamentals of all great brass playing are the same, and I can get you off to a fantastic start if you are a beginner or intermediate player :).

I have been behind the Drum Kit for 20 years, 13 of those years as a professional touring a recording drummer. I have taught students of all ages and all abilities to great success. Whatever your goals, whether you delight in mastering this complex instrument, or whether you hope to be a professional yourself one day, I can help you get there.

As a South African, I was raised on the drumbeats and rhythms of traditional Zulu and Xhosa folk music. Growing up in the UK, I received classical training in drum kit, chorus, and piano, and built a career as a professional drummer with the critically-acclaimed band Stornoway. I’ve played some of the world’s most renowned stages. With numerous critically-acclaimed albums, EPs, and singles under my belt, I’ve mastered all stages of recording and producing under the tutelage of some of the finest producers in the business. Now, as a New Yorker, I blend these very different approaches into a unique teaching methodology that emphasizes ...

"I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it."

"I have been taking lessons with Marjorie for many years now. When I first started, I was so shy about my voice that I didn't even want to sing in front of her! But her easy going ways soon helped me to get over all of the fears I had. She has so many great techniques to help you breathe correctly, open up your voice, and enunciate properly. With her help, I was able to sing in front of an audience for the first time in my life, and I am now the lead singer of a cover band! None of this would have happened without her, which is why I can say that she changed my life for the better. It is a pleasure to learn from her, and I think she's having a good time as well. It is very apparent that she enjoys teaching her students as much as we enjoy learning from her."

50+ Best Acapella Songs for Girls, Guys, Groups & More | TakeLessons

Every singer should have a few traditional and contemporary acapella songs under their belt. Many times, singers are required to sing acapella at auditions - without an accompanist or background track. Music directors often ask singers to sing acapella in order to hear and test their musicality and stamina. (Acapella singing requires that these skills be sharp!) It also shows that you’re able to be a leader, and that you're comfortable having the spotlight on you as a solo singer. I …
