Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program.

Music Therapy is an established health profession in which music is used within a therapeutic relationship to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. After assessing the strengths and needs of each client, the qualified music therapist provides the indicated treatment including creating, singing, moving to, and/or listening to music. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, clients' abilities are strengthened and transferred to other areas of their lives. Music therapy also provides avenues for communication that can be helpful to those who find it difficult to express themselves in words. Research in music therapy supports its effectiveness in many areas such as: overall physical rehabilitation and ...

Both my daughters (ages 6 and 8) are taking piano lessons with Kristin. She is a great teacher: patient, encouraging, listens to the kids, and makes sure they enjoy the lessons. We hope to have lessons with her for the long run and highly recommend her for a positive music experience.

After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first not

As an adult beginner, I chose Anastasia for more personalized instruction, especially in technique, after learning the basics through community center group lessons. I have not continued only because another equally well-qualified instructor who lives close by, within walking distance, has become available. I am very pleased with the lessons and pointers that I have received. Anastasia is professional, encouraging, and friendly. An especially helpful part of her instruction is the set of comments and suggestions that she writes down to guide practice between lessons. If the neighbor instructor does not work out, I’ll be back.

Your tuition includes not only your lessons appointments and my expertise, but also customized materials and prep time. Part or all of on-line lessons can be recorded and referred to during practice sessions. Studio lessons are enhanced by enrichment classes and optional performance opportunities.

"Dr. Backus is a phenomenal music teacher. In just a few lessons we could hear the difference in the way our daughter was playing piano. We have been so impressed with Dr. Backus’ ability to teach challenging piano techniques or music theory to our daughter and to make it interesting and fun. Our daughter not only enjoys her piano lessons but she is looking forward to them. Dr. Backus is a top-level piano performer and music teacher. Dr. Backus is extremely knowledgeable in her field and she is also organized and provides a framework of study for her students that is compatible with the student’s other activities and still ensures real progress in piano performance. Dr. Backus is passionate about music and about teaching music. She demonstrates so much positive energy and confidence that she captivates her students during the lessons. We highly recommend Dr. Backus as piano/music teacher."

"Dennis has been a wonderful guitar teacher and mentor for me over the last 18 months or so. I am in my mid-50s and was starting essentially as a beginner when I signed up to work with Dennis. Thanks to Dennis' patient and individualized approach, I have made great strides and am pleased with how I have progressed. While he is a very accomplished guitarist, he is also a very experienced teacher. Dennis' teaching approach is not to ask the student to follow a rigid learning plan or replicate the journey he took to mastering the guitar, but rather focuses on tailoring the lessons to the student's abilities, musical interests, time constraints, learning modes, etc. The bottom line is that I enjoy working with Dennis each week and practicing what he has taught me.

The pandemic has obviously thrown a big wrench into the giving of guitar lessons. Before, Dennis was teaching me at his house. We now meet online using the Takelessons platform. Online lessons took some getting used to and are clearly not optimal, but I think Dennis has become more and more adept at making it work as well as possible.

I heartily recommend Dennis as a guitar teacher."

"I took guitar lessons from Jon a few months ago.
the lessons were the best investment I ever made.
they were transformative.
they took me to the next level.
and there is just no comparison to the level I was at previously.
I grew in super fantastic ways.
lessons with Jon helped me to become a better guitarist and singer.
but, also a better musician. I learned a ton about how to be the best musician that I can be from him.
the guitar techniques that I wanted to learn from him, are challenging.
at the beginning, some of it was impossible.
he encouraged me. told me I could do it.
showed me a ton of super cool techniques.
told me stuff about how to use my mental powers (stuff like about HOW we learn).
he knows a lot about learning.
and he's super generous in teaching it.
I highly recommend for everyone to take lessons from Jon."

5 Dumb Mistakes Amateur Drummers Make

Learning how to play the drums takes a lot of patience, dedication and of course, practice. The technical skills won't just appear overnight, and neither will the gigs or performances! As you progress in your lessons, there are a few crucial mistakes you'll want to avoid. Here are a few we can think of...   1. Not branching out. As a musician (not only a drummer), you'll gain a lot more exposing yourself to new and different types of music, rather than limiting yourself to one genre. Eve …
