Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

"Phillip has been an extremely effective and professional instructor, with a sterling personality that makes lessons go by in no time flat. Lessons are well considered, and there's a genuine dialogue about what seems to work and what doesn't. I was nervous selecting an online teacher, but I've been pleased and most importantly musically fulfilled since beginning with Phillip and look forward to each week's lesson."

"Natasha is a truly outstanding piano teacher. As a child I took piano several times from various teachers and it was always difficult and boring and I never got anywhere with it. I think this is the experience that many of us have had in trying to learn an instrument. But with Natasha it was completely different. She has been my children’s teacher for about 4 months. They are 6 and 8 years old. Let me tell you, she is magic! Both my kids LOVE playing the piano now. They look forward to their lessons, they are learning to read and write music and my oldest even wrote a simple song without any prompting! She teaches in a way which breaks all the parts of playing the piano very easily and really engages the students. I would say she is the perfect combination of disciplined and caring. She has given my boys a love for music and a genuine interest in playing the piano. This is one of the best gifts I can think anyone could give a child. Our whole family loves Natasha and we are very thankful to have found her. Now I also want to take lessons with her!"
