I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

My background in viola definitely has helped with my violin playing and teaching! I started much later than most students do and remember EVERYTHING that I struggled with, as well as how my teachers helped me to accomplish my goals. I attend Lynn Conservatory, studying with one of today's leading teachers in the country. I have taught in the ISUs nationally recognized string project, and had violin private students go on to win auditions in their youth symphonies, as well as compete at All-State successfully. I have given national and international talks at conferences all around the nation. I feel that my background education and teaching experiences have helped me be a very unique teacher having a diverse background of methodology and information to create a unique approach for each of my students.

About Abigail

I am a professional violist, chamber musician and orchestral player, as well as a professional teacher and chamber coach. Students can expect to see improvement in their sound, intonation and feel more comfortable on their instrument within a week of regular practice. I can help students find and

Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

About Melissa

I am a professional singer, pianist, and photographer. I studies at EIU with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice and piano. Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply found

I'm an advanced teacher that has the ability to break anything down into simple pieces that are easy to learn. It is also my intention to teach my students how to teach themselves.

I'm a professional singer, composer, and arranger with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz Vocal Performance. I've toured throughout the United States and several countries in Asia.

I teach all ages and welcome beginners. My lessons are customized and catered to the needs and goals of each student. My students can work on vocal techniques and improvisation (e.g., scat singing, melody changing, etc.) over their favorite songs. If they would like, I can help my students build a solid foundation in music theory, composition, and arranging.

I've taught older students who have a passion for jazz and also younger students who are exploring the many wonderful aspects of this music.

Above anything else, I'd like to make sure my students are having fun and expressing their love for singing!

Our 5 year old enjoyed working with her.
Erin B.
I started taking lessons with Aya about three weeks ago and they have been great! I'm a former jazz vocalist who is getting back into singing with hopes to perform again in the near future. Aya is a patient, knowledgeable, and fun teacher. With her guidance, I feel confident that I'll be able to regain the voice I once had. I highly recommend her!

"When I met David, music had not always been a positive experience. As an older student, I am not always able to practice and I do have other things on my mind. He has never scolded me for not practicing, he is very patient with all my musical hangups, and he keeps meeting me where I am at. I may still not be comfortable with music, but I am comfortable with him."

"What can I say about Eric other than his the best Guitar teacher ever. He spots your weaknesses and fill in those blanks and all while learning to play songs you love. His method is much more intuitive than a classroom environment. Because of him my progression was fast and I can play a lot of songs and I have a deeper understanding of what it takes to play.

If your looking to start your journey on becoming a rock god you can't go wrong with him."

"Update after taking 4 singing lessons. Eric is AWESOME!!! I wish I could give 10 stars!! I achieved my initial goal that was to be able to enjoy singing, and now I want to be good at it! Eric helped me to improve my vocal range - which means I have more selections of song to sing now. Eric made me feel comfortable and confident to practice songs that I've never even thought of trying. Eric is very encouraging and supportive. I just LOVE this singing lesson! I highly recommend Eric to anyone who is interested in taking singing lessons at any levels. I am planning to take this singing lesson for a long time...as long as Eric teaches at Takelessons :)"

"Remi has been a fantastic and dependable teacher. He has been providing piano lessons for my daughter and guitar lessons for my son. Both are in tae kwon do which equates to frequent reschedules and cancellations. Remi has always been accommodating and willing to work with us to make this work. As a teacher he exhibits the patience of a saint and is willing to go through lessons repeatedly and from different angles to ensure that the student 'gets it'. I have been, and continue to be, very satisfied with Remi."

11 Annoying Things People Say to Female Guitarists

Female guitarists rock just as hard, if not harder than some men, yet the things people say to us sound like they're straight from the 1950s! Ladies, women, and girls, here are 11 of the most annoying things I've heard in my years of playing guitar. Maybe a few will sound familiar to you too? 1. Is that for your boyfriend? Why do some people find it so unbelievable that you're carrying your own gear or shopping at Guitar Center for yourself? 2. You're pretty good for a girl. …
