My daughter learned additional skills and mastered new pieces while working with Dawn. Her dedication and experience teaching online helped our young oboist to progress quicker, and the school band teacher noticed the improvement too. We're happy we found Dawn on takelessons!

I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

Hey! Thanks for landing on this description, I'm excited for your fun journey ahead! My violin lessons tend to focus on fun; I like to keep my lessons conversational and personal. I focus the learning material around things you like, some students have learned the latest Billie Eillish songs, and other beginners have learned the chorus of "Take Me Home, Country Roads".

However, just because the class is fun, does not mean that we do not strive for perfection. Violin is hard! I will give strict feedback in a positive and growth-mentality environment. This course focuses utilizes the Essential Elements & Suzuki lesson books.

Perry knows his stuff! His instruction and book have helped me become a solid drummer. I look forward to learning more from this talented musician. Thank you Perry!

Didn't think online drum lessons would work, but they do and I am thrilled I found Perry as my teacher! His Drum Control book is the perfect guide and I am improving with every lesson. Thanks Perry!
Gerry
Returning to drums after several years, I found that the "Drum Control" book Perry created and wrote really cleaned up my technique and got me going again with the essential tools I needed. I can't believe how easy it was with this great book. The combination of his teaching and book got me rockin' in no time! Perry is a real pro and knows what he's doing. I am learning from the best! Thanks Perry!

I love playing guitar! I teach beginning to intermediate guitar. I like to make the lessons fun and interactive. Playing along with the students. Fun classic children's songs for younger students. If the student enjoys singing I encourage them to sing along when they feel comfortable. I sing and play guitar so I'm comfortable with singing along with student or singing on my own. I can also help the student to sing along with guitar. I adapt the lessons to meet the individual needs for each student.

"My first lesson was everything I hoped for from start to finish. I haven't played piano for many years & wanted to begin by using a keyboard as a learning tool--to recapture dexterity and reading ability. I emerged with a better grasp of basics & even a little music theory--exactly as I had requested. Itai is a wonderfully patient teacher & I am looking forward to next week."

"great teacher for beginner to advanced

Paul really got me into playing the guitar. I was disinterested when I first started but he encouraged me to stick with it and to keep practicing. When i got over being a beginner, we got more advanced and learned theory and I took lessons with him until I went away for college where I ended up majoring in music. I highly recommend Paul, even if you're just looking to play some songs and have fun!"
