About Joshua
Hi! I'm Josh, a passionate music educator in Boston, MA. I have taught over 2000 lessons over the past five years to piano, voice, and theory students of all ages. From preparing for rock-vocal style auditions at Berklee College of Music to helping re-discovering the fun of classical piano lessons, there is nothing I enjoy more than working with students on achieving their goals. As a gigging musician and a lifetime student myself, I know what it takes to improve, master, and most importantly ENJOY your time at your instrument. Looking forward to helping you reach all your music goals!

About me:
I eat/breathe/sleep music. From writing and conducting my first A Capella piece in high school to playing in bands that have toured around the world, music is my passion and my life! I value nothing more than finding that passion in others and
working together to turn musical fantasies into realities.

From grade school to high school I took rigorous classical piano lessons. In 2006-07 I attended two summer programs at Berklee College of Music where I studied jazz/rock performance, and continued to study jazz piano at Washington University.

At Boston University, I studied classical music composition/theory, and was accepted to for a dual degree in Music Composition, Psychology, but decided to pursue music as a minor in order to allow more time for gigging. Since relocating to Boston, I have performed 250+ shows in various ensembles around the greater Boston area.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private instructor, I am here to give you the most rewarding, interesting, and enjoyable lessons in the UNIVERSE. My lessons are are catered to your specific goals and where you are at, beginner to advance, 5-1000 years old. I am here to get you to where you want to go, whether that's taking up a new hobby or becoming a virtuoso. Together, we will do it!

In our lessons we will work on:

- Your favorite songs, any style
- Writing your own music
- How to learn music by ear
- How to read music notation and chord sheets.
- How to record/produce yourself
- really, seriously, ANYTHING YOU WANT!

I know what it's like to have a teacher that is uninspiring, or to be told that a certain kind of music is the "right kind to learn," when all you want to do is jam out to your favorite songs on the radio. I've been there. That's not what I'm about. I'll teach you how to play whatever it is you want to learn, whether that's the complete works of Bach or the latest One Direction song. Let's do it.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Digital Piano, Synthesizer, Digital Audio Workstation, Recording Equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano and voice students must provide piano/keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
My experience is primarily with pop/rock/jazz/classical music, but we can do any genre/style you'd like!

My 15 year old son is primarily a songwriter and guitar player. He wanted some singing lessons just so he can feel more confident as a vocalist. Joshua has been very pleasant, fairly flexible in terms of scheduling, and has delivered on that confidence. We recommend him!

About Carl
Carl grew up in Connecticut in a musical family. He found a great deal of enjoyment starting Drum Lessons in grade school where he noticed that this joy for music and rhythm contributed to a passion-inspired growth accelerating beyond his performance in other subjects. He was inspired by Classic and Progressive Rock artists throughout Junior High and High School, and began to take his growing passion more seriously, taking part in Marching, Symphonic bands, Wind and Jazz Ensembles. Carl made the All-State Orchestra in High School, and performed at an All-New England Orchestra while attending CCSU (Central Connecticut State University)​ and​ while studying Classical Percussion (Snare Drum, M​arimba, Timpani) under the tutelage of Principal Percussionist at the Navy Coast Guard. After two years at CCSU, he transferred to Berklee College
of Music where he obtained his BA in Music Performance. While attending Berklee Carl explored Contemporary Drum Set styles within various ensembles and classes, focusing on Jazz, Latin, Funk, Fusion, and World Music, under the apprenticeship of artists such as Kenwood Dennard, Ian Froman, Jon Hazilla, Nancy Zeltsman, Casey Scheuerell.
Carl currently teaches at Needham Public Schools as well as the Winchester Community Music School, and performs in and around Boston and New England in various stylistic musical groups ranging from small Combo Jazz, Big Band, Folk, Funk, Indie Rock, Theatre, etc. Some latest projects include ‘Echo and Drake’ who were ​featured in ‘Paste’ and ‘American Songwriter’ Magazines, ‘Zen Carnival’, Mamadou(.com) to name a few.

Carl’s role as a teacher is to create as much of a positive blend of education with an exciting musical environment, incorporating the latest contemporary music (student and teacher influenced) while also applying a broad scope of traditional styles, techniques, and exercises for developing a well-rounded musical experience and musician, and with the goal of assisting the student in reaching their highest potential and​ to​ become as self-reliant as possible.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Depending on which town, I could travel up to 20-25 miles because in some cases those locations maybe near other places i currently teach...

*** Specialties ***
Drum Set Technique, Coordination, Styles, Improvisation.

About Itai
Itai graduated from SUNY Purchase with a BA in Studio Composition in 2007, and from Hebrew College with a Masters' Degree in Jewish Education in June, 2016. He has been working in after-school, Hebrew school, camp, and other supplementary educational settings for over ten years.

About Maximillian
I've been playing music since I was 7 years old. The first record I remember playing on repeat and learning all the lyrics to was The Beatles' Rubber Soul. My musical tastes span many genres including rock, funk, R&B, jazz, folk, and many more. I love helping people discover new music, because hearing a great record for the first time can be a life changing experience. Although I first learned to play by ear, I took a strong interest in music theory in school, so I am able to teach in either style. I've been teaching lessons for 10 years now, and have watched my students grow into great players. I studied music at Ramapo College of New Jersey, worked as a touring musician and audio engineer in Nashville for 3 years, and now reside in Boston, where I play with many different musical groups. I also studied with legendary studio owner and au
dio engineer Lou Gonzalez, founder of QUAD Studios. His new studio, QUAD Lakeside in Raymond, Maine, is one that I helped build and use to record and produce bands from around the northeast.

About ali
My name is Ali Y, I graduated from Boston University with a master degree in 2017. Before I graduate, I started to teach violin and Mandarin in Takelessons, as you can see in my reviews, I have a very high rating since I started, every student like to play violin with me because I always can see their smile in the lesson.

I’ve begun to study in BU with Professor Bayla Keyes since 2015, in these two years, I’ve learned a lot from her, not only my violin skill but also a lot of teaching methods.

I got my bachelor degree in Renmin University of China, which is one of the best university in China. I had 24 students before I came to the States, several of them won the first prize in different violin competition.

I’m very patient. And I know how to commute with students. Most of my student can learn very fast and be very happy at t
he same time. I hope my student to love music instead of just playing the music.

About Fae
Welcome! I'm a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter in East Boston. I teach a wide range of skills, including piano, guitar, mandolin, singing, songwriting, and music recording / production. All ages and levels are welcome! Whether you're just starting out or looking to sharpen existing skills, you'll be surprised how fast you can improve. I teach music that you care about, whether that's Elliott Smith or Carly Rae Jepsen or the Undertale soundtrack or your own song ideas. Come see what you can accomplish!

I base my teaching on the three pillars of music learning:

Enthusiasm -- you learn best when you care about what you're learning. I don't use a one-size-fits-all curriculum; I help you learn the music you love, no matter what it is. Ever wanted to play Zelda songs on a real ocarina? Let's make it happen!

Confidence -- the most
valuable thing you can have as a musician isn't virtuosic technique, it's comfort and confidence in your own skills. That confidence opens the door to deeper musical expression that connects with listeners, and it is possible at every level. I write custom song arrangements for you so you can feel good about sharing music with others, no matter where you're starting from.

Growth -- every song has something to teach you, but when you're starting out it's hard to know where to focus. I write exercises targeted to your specific skills, so you can start improving right away!

If you want to know more I'd love to hear from you. Adult beginners welcome!
