I started looking for a piano instructor back in January. I have a particular goal in mind and after reviewing many instructor
I had taken piano lessons when I was a child, but gave that up; however, now I'm back at it! As an adult learner, I look for a few things: personality of the instructor, experience and educational background. When I reviewed Jeffrey's profile, he seemed to be the best match for me.
My first lesson with Jeffrey we discussed what my objectives were and he listened. He had me do some exercises to get a baseline as to where I was.
The other thing I like about his teaching style is that is very patient with me and give encouragement even though I may not seem to be doing well! Every lesson I build upon the previous and he gives me exercises that help in the areas that I struggle in. He also goes out of his way to help me find music that is suited to me (and free from the Internet). Jeffrey is also very flexible and understands when life happens and I may not get to practice as much as I want to or if I have to change or cancel an appointment. He is also great at communicating with the client.
Another encouraging item to mention, Jeffrey will be honest with you - I initially started with 30 min sessions, and those 30 minutes go very quickly! It'a time I move on to 60 min ones - he said I'm ready!
Jeffrey definitely has a passion for music and it shows through his teaching! What are you waiting for? Make an appointment today!"

Michael is amazing! It is my first time doing a Skype lesson on Take Lessons, and it exceeded all expectations.
As far as logistics goes, not counting the times when Skype skipped a few seconds of speech, working with Michael has been seamless. He is very professional yet very down to earth. He is very flexible with the times of the lessons and is easy to get in contact with if there is an issue with the schedule. I recommend a Skype lesson to anyone not only because of the convenience, but also the range of expertise you can get. Michael lives in Brooklyn - and there is no way I could have worked with him living in San Diego before this! Thus, the teaching environment is a 4/5 simply because of errors of technology not by fault of the teacher."

I started playing the violin at age 4 and while I have loved all my teachers, I still wish I had someone as brilliant as Jill instructing me. For any age, Jill Good is perfection."
During lessons and ensemble coaching sessions, Ms. Maria is extremely patient, kind, understanding. She is highly committed to teaching, able to work with students of any proficiency level, and always earnestly encouraging students to improve to the best they can. I will always remember the amazing lessons I had learning Arensky’s Suite No. 2, Op. 23 (“Silhouettes”) under her instruction!"

I am a classically-trained violinist. I grew up in Lodz, Poland, where I began musical education at the age of 7.
I studied violin and piano at the Music High School and Music Academy of K.&G. Bacewicz, Lodz, Poland and earned a Master Degree in violin performance in 1980.
During his College years I started to perform with the Symphony Orchestra of Polish Radio and Television.
From the mid – 70s until the early 1990s, I performed with several Polish orchestras
and held a position as a v
in Slupsk, Poland.
Then, I spent almost 10 years performing in numerous ensembles and orchestras in Germany and toured with Orchestra of Great Theater of Lodz in many countries all over the world.
From 2002 – 2005 he was first violinist at Lodz’s Operetta Theater.
I moved to Michigan in 2005, where he performs with Macomb, Jackson and Flat Rock Symphony Orchestras.
*** Lesson Details ***
The most interesting and beneficial thing about performing music is that it is one of the few activities that engages both the left and the right brain at the same time. I believe that every Human Being is precious and deserves to be nurtured and encouraged in a fun and loving environment. With that in mind, my teaching places equal importance on developing strong technique, and developing creativity. Students learn all the basics of music, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire, so that they can enjoy music in all kinds of settings, all their lives.
Our time spent together will be laid back and comfortable, yet challenging because that is probably why you want to take lessons.
Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of instrumental pieces/songs given to work on throughout the week—usually 2-3 short songs for 30-minute lessons, and 1-2 longer instrumental pieces for an hour-long lesson. These will be the same pieces we have worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge you need to master each piece. Music theory sheets and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.
Within 6 months, you will begin discovering how to read music and understand the language of it. You will learn how to play some of your favorite songs/instrumental pieces and learn some that you might not know. We'll discover what you really want to learn and achieve through taking lessons, and we will work toward those goals!
Discipline is vital to musical progress and daily practice is strongly urged, in order for the student to progress. If a students don't practice, they won't progress. Because of that, you can expect that I will encourage consistent and regular practice, always keeping in mind that the study of music is meant to be fun.
Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn by rote, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music.
I would be honored to share my knowledge and love of music with you. Give yourself a priceless gift that will last a lifetime!

It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all thats left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isnt a talent that everybody has. … Read More
