Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

Nadia is an Amazing, Talented, Effective and Kind Teacher........

NADIA is an Amazing teacher! I am a professional Musician (Opera Singer), and always dreamed of playing the Flute. With Nadia's skill as a wonderful flutist and her knowledge of Alexander Technique mixed in with her teaching of the Flute, I have very quickly developed a comfortable and proper position while playing. As a beginner in Flute, I must say that she has truly helped me begin to make some great sounds, sight-read easily, develop Good playing-Habits, and enjoy playing and caring for my Flute. It is RARE to find a Great Teacher who is both "effective" and "kind". I Highly recommend Nadia to ALL those who Love Music and the FLUTE!!

Lindsey is an encouraging, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and talented singing teacher and performer! Before Lindsey relocated to Texas, I took lessons with her for about 10 months. I always loved singing, but I never took any private lessons until I discovered Lindsey on takelessons. After a few months learning from Lindsey, I was able to widen my range, correct my breathing techniques, and learn the fundamentals of harmony and sight singing. Lindsey’s lessons were always fun and informative. She also gave me the confidence to audition for a Vocal Ensemble. After several weeks of audition preparation with Lindsey, I surprisingly made it into the group! If you are looking for a fun and educated singing teacher, Lindsey is for you!

Lindsey is an incredible singer & teacher!!

We absolutely love Lindsey!! My daughter has been taking voice lessons from her for several months now & we couldn't be happier. She has a fun, wonderful personality which makes lessons a delight. She is such a skilled vocalist & her method of teaching is very effective. She really gets my daughter involved in the process, continually guiding her to reach her goals & utilize her strengths. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn to sing.
