Dave is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's extremely kind and easy to work with, and always pushed me further. He built a balanced curriculum around technique, theory, and playing songs that had me seeing great improvements in a short amount of time. You will not be disappointed! This man knows a great deal about a large variety of topics, and will tune your curriculum to what specific things you want to learn.

I've been teaching saxophone for over 10 years. I will work with students to develop a good tone, technique-through scales and etudes, and rhythmic internalization by incorporating drum tracks and metronome throughout the lesson. My philosophy is make music fun but also make it so my students have fun putting the work in to get to be a better musician. My style varies from student to student depending on their specific needs but I will always bring energy and fun to all my lessons.

Sarah is very easy to work with, always interested in helping you the student have fun with the sax, as she has. Despite her great experience and background (or because of it?) she never seemed bored or working beneath herself with a beginner. I could say more, but I better take this time to practice!

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.

Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me.

"This review is waaaay over do. When I was begginer singer Randy was the first teacher to break down to me why my goals were more than realistic and set a new standard for what I felt a instrument coach should be. So here we go.

Randy is every creative, spontaneous, disorganized person's dream come true. Someone who helps you build the connection to your imagination to create whatever music you want in reality. He understands the common misconceptions people have that cripple their creativity and he will get you out that box really fast. Randy works to educate you and give you tools to where you don't need him. That's how much love this teacher has for his students. There is a lot of potential people have that they miss out on because they don't have the right teacher. So going to list some specifics.

1) If your a begginer artist rather if sing or have a different instrument your trying to improve with, know if you start with Randy you will be in GREAT hands. Music theory in general can be confusing but its the foundation any serious artist needs to understand to create their own music. Randy is great with explaining and helping you understand whatever area your struggling with.

2) Randy is all about organization and helping you set the right goals. Alot of your visions and ideas as a artist can be all over the place and knowing where to start can be overwhelming. First session you will be leaving with a game plan that will not fail so long as you do your homework.

3) For the singers who don't think they can sing certain songs know that Randy is very talented in making music. He can put any song you want to sing in your own range and is all about you sounding like you. He will help you discover what chords and melodies sound good with your voice. This is very important because again you get out of that limited box holding back your creativity.

4) This is the most important thing. Accountability.
Randy will make it very clear to you with everything he gives you that its on you to practice these things. He doesn't do a half job and he is thorough. He is the kind of professional you need to work with and I promise if you do book with him you will not look at alot of other teachers the same. He is worth every penny!

So in conclusion if you want to sing well or make your own tunes in no time, Randy is the man you need to talk to. All you gotta be is disciplined and do your homework. This teacher makes it fun and exciting."

What Is Violin Purfling? & Other Violin Parts You Didn't Know About?

I’m sure we are all familiar with the basic look, shape and sound of the violin. After all, violins have been around for over 400 years, and you simply make beautiful music by drawing the bow over the strings and moving your fingers! Right? Well, if only it were that simple.  When I meet a new, beginner student for the first time, I always introduce them to the “anatomy” of the violin.
