I have played Baroque flute for five years, and I enjoy early music and the learning process with this instrument. Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of Baroque flute playing, performance-practice, and approaches to early music. I am especially interested in teaching modern flute players how to approach and appreciate this instrument!

Professional experience performing on trombone alongside other trombone luminaries (eg. Wayne Wallace from Patois Records) dating back to 2013, and in instructing students as young as 11.

Within the first few lessons, you'll know to play with a full and beautiful sound, and as time goes on you'll be able to get around the instrument with confidence. I specialize in jazz (both big band and playing with a combo), and typically use the Arbans book or adaptations from Flexus to advance your progress.

I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I'm a multi-instrumentalist and composer with two degrees earned concurrently from Indiana University--one a Bachelor of Science in Biology from the College of Arts and Sciences, the other a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the internationally renowned Jacobs School of Music. Upon arriving

My daughter is taking piano lessons with Iryna for over 6 months now. I can’t express enough how lucky we are to have Iryna as our teacher! Her love of teaching and children really shows. My daughter is making great progress not only in music but also in school! Piano lessons help my child with consentration as well as memory. She really loves Mrs Iryna and is always looking forward to her next lesson. The convenience of Iryna coming to our house for lessons helps out our busy family tremendously!

I am the mother of one of Iryna's Students. She is an excellent piano teacher. My children went thru several piano teachers before we found Iryna and she has been the best. She really takes the time to explain and does it in a way that makes it easier for the student to understand. She is patient and allows the student to learn at their own pace. I would strongly recommend her.
Anthony
Iryna is an excellent piano teacher. She is very good at explaining and has a lot of patience. She has helped me understand music. I like that she lets me choose the contemporary music I like. She is the best music and piano teacher I have had.

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

Anne is an attentive and dedicated teacher! As an adult learner, I have appreciated how she is able to offer practical suggestions on how to effectively practice and gain immediate useable skills. She is able to quickly determine what works best for me, and encourages me all along the way. I would absolutely recommend Anne for anyone wanting to learn harp, or improve upon their abilities. She is fun to work with, always with a smile, and is very personable.

Anne was lovely.
She taught me all the nuts and bolts of playing the instrument in a way that was clear This included the integral parts of the harp, how to read music, how to posture the harp, and hand positioning Anne showed a good measure of patience, which was much appreciated.

"We selected Brad Allen because he was using Faber&Faber's Piano Adventures. Since then, my three children have not only excelled in their skills, but they have grown more and more to enjoy playing. Brad is fun and personable and he gives his students the freedom to play the things which will interest them. The amount of practice homework he gives is manageable but still enough to increase their skills. As a parent, I appreciate his flexibility when our schedule gets complicated. I fully trust Brad Allen with the time he spends with my children."

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

"Mikaela is a fantastic clarinet instructor!

Happening across Takelessons.com while in search of a good clarinet teacher for our daughter, was by far the easiest and most rewarding. We feel grateful to have been so lucky.

Mikaela has been EXCELLENT in every sense of the word. She comes on time to our home for every lesson. She takes her time with our daughter and teaches in a way that makes our daughter look forward to each lesson. Mikaela is extremely knowledgeable about the instrument and what she is teaching, and it shows each and every time she teaches. The very first lesson, Mikaela let us know that our daughters instrument was not working properly (we didn't have a clue). She knew exactly what was wrong with it, and we had it fixed by the next lesson. Her communication with our daughter and with us is the best it could possibly be. We are so happy and fortunate to have found the perfect match for our 12 year old clarinet player. Our daughter was recently complimented by her music teacher at school, and was very excited to hear how well she is progressing."

"Gavin is, by far, the best guitar instructor I've ever had. I took lessons from him for 2+ years and learned a great deal from him. He incorporates teaching the essential skills every guitar player should master with music that the student wants to learn. This method really motivated me to play more and become a much better guitar player! I've learned so many valuable skills (chord recognition, improvisation, scale shapes etc) while taking lessons from him, and it has made me a much better player in the long run. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to take guitar lessons, regardless of their prior skill level. Thank you Gavin!"

Jonathan taught me the basics and then picked a few songs and doesn't leave the song until you feel pretty comfortable playing the melody, accompaniment and even some soloing. I looks forward to all of my lessons"
