I have taken Acting with Christian for about a month now. He is truly passionate about what he does and pushed his students forward to succeed. Compare to my first lesson, I felt more confident in myself to get into character and expressing it out. He went above and beyond in explaining every little detail to help in every step of the way. He is one of the best teacher so far that I have taken on TakeLesson. I look forward to every lessons, plus they are quite fun!

For many years I sang in my school Chamber Choir and took voice lessons. The choir performed regularly in pubic and in statewide competitions. I also have years of experience teaching the basics of singing in a low pressure way.
Topics we learn about include breathing and breath control, pitch and intervals, keys and scales and singing harmony. I can accompany a student while they sing, and hopefully teach them the basics of accompanying themselves.

David was exactly what I was looking for in an upright bass teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, friendly and very professional. He clearly understood where I want to be in a year's time. I would not hesitate to recommend David to any musician interested in studying the double bass. A fine teacher.
Lee K.
David provided instant feedback and is very knowledgeable.
David T.
David , arrived on time at my home for my first piano lesson in 25 years.
He was friendly and knowledgeable and soon found some things for me to work on, but he was patient with this 53
Year old guy.
I feel confident that my piano skills will improve greatly with David’s tuition.
I eagerly look forward to my next lesson.

In our first lesson, I quickly noticed her enthusiasm in her teaching. I felt very comfortable singing with her and would definitely recommend her.
Kellie
We love Amanda and Keith. They are energetic, enthusiastic, patient, and knowledgeable. We started lessons because of my daughter's interest in singing, and even at only 10, we've seen huge improvements in her presentation and performance since working with Amanda. It's been a blessing to watch her talents being developed in a caring environment.
Brittany
My son recently got into singing he loves to sing around the house so we decided to explore it. He have done 5 lessons with Amanda and my son loves it.. he comes home singing what they practiced on, he has learned a lot. When he sees someone else in the house singing he try’s to correct us .. Amanda is very nice and very helpful and the communication is amazing!!
