Justin is a great piano teacher

My 6 year old has piano lessons with Justin. He enjoys his lessons and I'm a proud mother when I listen to him play. My son is a little talker but Justin is always kind, very patient, and uses relatable examples for him to better understand. He encourages which motivates my son to want to practice more. He is also very polite, never without a friendly smile, and without a doubt loves teaching music. I hope Justin continues teaching music by the time my now 1 year old is old enough to take lessons. My family truly appreciates him.

At first, I doubted that I could do a piano lesson online but Mr. Raymond erased all my doubt on the very first section with him. He is really good at what he does. I asked him a question and he answered it without any confusion. From his answers, I know he is really knowledgable in music generally, and piano specifically. He is friendly and laid-back but he will make sure you perfectly play your pieces. Take him and you will have no regret!

Remi's great! I was a little unsure at first, being a grown woman taking up a new hobby, but he set me at ease and has challenged me appropriately. He had me figured out pretty quickly, too; and he adapted lessons to my personality, incoming skill set, and taste. He's also a delight to be around, so lessons are fun.

Remi has been a great teacher - very patient, supportive. Also has a lot of good "tricks" to help you through challenging parts of learning an instrument. I have been playing violin for years now, so I have had quite a bit of experience with music instructors, and I feel I picked an extraordinary teacher to help me with the ukulele. (Also, I have a very irregular schedule and Remi has been flexible with reschedules, which I greatly appreciate.) Thanks Remi!

About James

I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and running quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time. I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very

If you like guitar, you'll like James.

I have had about a dozen lessons so far with James, starting out as a complete beginner, with knowledge of only a few chords. In this short time, I have learned a great deal of theory, practice strategy, playing full songs, and even singing along with a few in time. James has been very hospitable and patient, and I recommend him to anyone who loves the guitar, regardless of skill!

Logan D. Jacksonville, FL

Guitar is my first instrument and I have been playing it for about 8 years. I can get anyone started and have them playing in a month. The lesson regime will usually partake in technique such as becoming fluid and comfortable with chord changes and scales and repertoire where the student will learn the music he/she desires to learn. I believe in giving students what they need to become the best they can be. I don't teach based on a rigid curriculum. I teach based off where the student is as a musician and help the student achieve the goals he/she is reaching for.

About Logan

I have been teaching and helping people on this musical journey since January 2011. it pretty much started out with me just helping friends become better artists and better people. I enjoyed helping so much that I thought it would be a good idea to share the knowledge even more so I branched out through takelessons.com. I can teach beginner and intermediate levels in guitar, piano, and music theory.

Baileigh W. Jacksonville, FL

I've been playing guitar for 8 years now. Currently, I am enrolled as a performing music major in FSCJ for guitar. I've had many teachers that have given me a wide range in styles. Teaching people in the past, I have learned that everyone learns at their own pace and in their own way. I like to teach a bit of theory when I teach any instrument because more than anything I want people to understand the fundamentals which will create a stable foundation for any type of musician!

About Baileigh

Hello! My name is Baileigh. I've been playing guitar for 8 years now. Along the way I have learned piano, ukulele, bass guitar, and fundamentals for percussion. I'm currently going to school for music, which I hope will help me pursue a career in music composition and songwriting. Aside from music, I am very passionate about science and history. Sociology and astronomy are my strongest subjects. I'm looking forward to helping others invest in tangible knowledge that they will find exciting and useful many of times in the future.
