We signed up with Marci for beginner lessons with my 6 year old daughter and couldn't be happier! She is fantastic with children! She is very patient and has many creative ways to motivate, engage and work with young children on their level. One of the many things I love most about working with Marci is that she established a relationship with my daughter which helped tremendously in bringing her "out of her shell". Marci has provided age and level appropriate materials that my daughter loves to play from! Marci, thank you for being such a wonderful teacher!
Nancy
My 6 year old son and 8 year old daughter love going to piano every week! I am very impressed with the way she teaches and is so patient!
Julie
This is my third review of Marci's teaching. My son, Arthur, participates in weekly piano lessons, and is still enjoying them!

Arthur has been practicing hard for his next recital, and I'm really looking forward to hearing him play :)

Keep up the good work!

I have been driven to sing since the womb. I first discovered my talents at the age of 13 and have been a ROCKET ever since ! From singing solos in church choirs to auditioning for a performing arts school. I’ve realized my passion for my gift was only BEGINNING. I have not only had the opportunity to be apart of a wonderful concert, chamber choir for 3+ years , I’ve experienced music theory , vocal pedagogy, Piano 1,2 & competed in district and state solos , with a rate of 2 and 1! To being a lead 1st soprano. Overall I’ve taught others how to read , write , find their vocal range , I’ve also had the privilege to critique ,direct some of the various music selections such as jazz, opera,folk,classical etc.., for fellow individuals , classmates , peers. When it comes to music the drive I bring to the table is knowledgeable, & fun with a intent to grow and follow your passion!

I am currently pursuing a Master's in Flute Performance at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music under the tutelage of Kathryn Lukas. I have a very gentle and positive demeanor, and I am skilled at assessing the needs of my students and helping them to create richer music and love the process. I have pedagogy training from Prof. Lukas who herself has been a successful educator for several decades. I have been playing flute for over 16 years and have much experience in core technique development, major repertoire, understanding and communicating musical concepts, and performing in different modes (i.e. solo, ensemble, chamber, etc.).

"Ahmad is a master guitar teacher. Every lesson I feel like he's sharing the shortcuts to playing how I want.

I've been playing guitar and keyboards for many years, so I've been somewhat cautious about approaching a professional instructor to help me "get serious" about the guitar. Like other players, I've run into overly pedantic instructors who take every player back to the beginning and teach the "right" way to play the instrument, but also the loose instructors who have no structure and can't deeply answer theory or technique questions.
Ahmad has managed to build a rigorous teaching methodology while still being fun and really engaged in what the student wants to learn. He's has compiled drawers and drawers full of prepared exercises and explanations, but he's looking to help me find the most helpful topics to work on rather than disregard what I already know."

"Benjamin is my second instructor I have had on TakeLessons, I stopped with the first when I did not think it would be a good fit. I have only had two lessons and I can already see that Benjamin has high attention to detail and is very skilled. I want someone to teach me the fundamentals, point out my bad habits and teach me methods to correct them - no compromises. I am confident that Benjamin will get me on the right track and intend to continue on with him."
