Emily is a great teacher. This is my son's first time playing guitar and he has gotten really good. She teaches him music theory too. And, he gets to play all kinds of songs including classical.

Miss Brown is an awesome piano and guitar teacher. When I retired a few years ago I took piano with her. Now she's teaching me how to play guitar. Since I know how to play piano, it's so much easier to learn guitar. She's teaching me how to play in a band too. We jam together me playing guitar and she plays piano. Miss Brown makes everything easy to learn. I'm having so much fun learning to play music!

I've been teaching music since I was 25, and my students have gone on to become professional musicians, lifelong friends, and most importantly, happy from the experience.

I do not use method books but rather take the students' requests and pieces they love and turn them into sheet music by hand.

I do not tell the students what they do wrong, only what they do right. Everyone makes mistakes, so when that happens, I tell the student "Good!" and move on to the next musical success.

I approach piano from a classical background and students can expect to study some materials related to classical music, and if a students interest is outside of classical they can expect to learn how to play their favorite song, or a familiar melody from a movie, or how to listen to songs on the radio or online and be able to figure them out!

For students who would like a broader understanding of piano and how to play they will be expected to study a lesson series of books they must purchase at the discretion of the teacher, or as a teacher I can also teach out of any existing books a student might have. If they would like to learn one song they love and want to purchase Pay-As-You-Go lessons until they have mastered it, that is great, too!

Students who want to gain a comprehensive study of piano will also learn music theory and ear training, and how to read music.

Jacob does a really good job teaching saxophone lessons. He is very good with young kids.
Tami W.
Our experience with Take Lessons and more importantly with Jacob the instructor have been very good so far. My 9 year old son is just starting saxophone and based on the two lessons he had with Jacob, they appear to get along well. Jacob appears to be very patient with my young inexperienced saxophone player.

My son was able to play a few notes the first lesson and played Hot Cross Buns the second lesson. Apparently, playing anything that early in training is unusual. So we are very pleased and hope to see the progress continue.

Jacob was a great instructor. He was very kind and class time was very productive! He is a very positive teacher and highly recommended!

I am a certified Steinway education partner with over 14 years of teaching experience. I specialize in teaching students who already play the instrument and wish to get a more in-depth experience with piano literature by learning new repertoire and building technique. For all my students, I emphasize the importance of practicing efficiently while developing critical listening skills. I am very patient and encouraging and I also teach adult beginners.

Yoon is an incredibly patient and experienced teacher. He takes you through the theory and technique in a way that is both accessible and informative. Honestly, you couldn't ask for a better instructor, and his teaching methods are top-tier.
Drew
I studied piano for 3 years with Yoon Jae, from when I was 25-28 years old. I'd started playing piano a bit in my early 20s, but never very seriously. I am mainly a drummer and percussionist, and studied music in college. I was looking for someone to take my piano playing, reading, and technique to closer to that of a professional, rather than an amateur/hobbyist which was where I was at. Yoon Jae really did that. I'm not going to be touring and playing Carnegie Hall anytime soon or anything like that, but I can really confidently say that my lessons with Yoon Jae raised my level a lot. My understanding of touch, nuance and phrasing grew a lot. My reading, though still a weakness, improved a lot, and my technique improved tremendously. By the end of our time I was playing Chopin's Fantasy Impromptu. I think if my 22 year old self saw a video of my 28 year old self playing that piece I would be floored. Though I don't take lessons with him anymore, now when I work on a piece on my own I still use many of the approaches, strategies and practice techniques he taught me- and I think that is the most valuable thing I got from him. He really developed a much deeper awareness, nuance and focus in that I can take with me for the rest of my life as a musician. He really is a great teacher.
Willem
Yoon Jae is a phenomenal teacher and person. As a teacher, he pushes you to be your best musician, yet remains understanding. He guides you in creating insights into your strengths and weaknesses, so that you'll continuously improve. He also provides you with tips and techniques to get the most out of your practice. He's also incredibly nice and fun to talk to.
