I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

My daughter learned additional skills and mastered new pieces while working with Dawn. Her dedication and experience teaching online helped our young oboist to progress quicker, and the school band teacher noticed the improvement too. We're happy we found Dawn on takelessons!

"My daughter finds Mr Tony to be very patient, calm and enthusiastic about her piano playing. "He never gives up on me," she says.
He mixes classical with fun music from her favorite, Taylor Swift. Whenever there has been a scheduling conflict he is very flexible and open to makeup sessions. We enjoy his style of piano reaching and have been very pleased so far."

"Would highly recommend as a teacher for beginner-adults. Zhana is a wonderful, patient, and constructive teacher and has several regular adult and child students.

I've gone to her for the past 2 years as we work through the first few suzuki levels. As an adult learner, violin is tough but Zhana breaks it down and gives helpful feedback.

She also goes above and beyond for her students by organizing recitals a few times a year. Her adult-students and child-students all perform at recitals."

"Great teacher for all levels

I have been consistently playing guitar for over 15 years, and within one lesson Jesse taught me new approaches to both guitar and songwriting that immediately inspired me. He has a great depth of knowledge and passion for music, and that comes through in each lesson. He quickly pinpointed the areas I needed to practice, and helped me craft a practice routine, and he continues to show me areas I can improve during each lesson. He plays many different instruments and uses them to teach, which comes in especially handy for learning rhythm. It also means I get to practice playing along with those different instruments, which is always a good thing. He has an easygoing attitude which makes learning easy, as I never feel intimidated or afraid to ask questions. I look forward to my lesson every week!"

"I took guitar classes from Greg for about 8 years, bass lessons for about a year, and drum lessons for about a year, and eventually worked with him as an instructor as well; I'll let you know that you will be very hard-pressed to find a better teacher than Greg - he takes the time to really delve deep into all your lessons and give you the best experience, as well as wonderful material to work with, in order to help you fully reach your potential as a musician. On top of that, he really gets to know you and caters to your style of learning, and helps you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, overall making your learning experience the most fruitful it can be. Besides, he makes the learning fun! I highly recommend and respect Greg as a musician and an instructor."
