I am an AFPA certified personal trainer and hula hoop expert. In addition to working as a personal trainer at LaFitness, I have taught Hooping for Fitness and Performance at a local community center.

Aaron is an exceptionally talented, outstanding teacher and person! My 16-year-old son has learned so much from Aaron online already and genuinely looks forward to lessons with him every week. We highly recommend Aaron! :)
Sarah
Highly recommend. I played flute in high school (15 years ago) and am new to keyboard as a hobby. He's attuned to my level of comprehension and has been helping me master skills at a good pace. Highly proficient musician and instructor; answers all my questions and demonstrates songs/skills as we go. Has an excellent Zoom setup using multiple views, which has made remote learning a breeze. Thanks Aaron!
Kelly P.
Aaron was great with my son who is just starting out with drums. He slowed down where my son needed more support and sped up when he was gaining skills quickly. The support with recordings of the lessons and practice plan for the week is fantastic and the multiple camera views during the lesson was really helpful when showing techniques.

Karen is a wonderful teacher. Very experienced and patient with a beginner.
Erika H.
Karen is so friendly, sweet, and methodical in teaching style. It is wonderful to be introduced to dulcimer with her and - literally - learn how to fine tune my instrument with her tips and encouragement. She makes me even more excited to tune and play my instrument. I can easily get happily lost simply in the tuning process with my dulcimer as it brings me a lot of joy just to hear the notes come into tune and playing very small, minor amounts of things on my dulcimer as is... it is so nice to have a guide like Karen to help me better to understand and dance with my dulcimer, learn about music and how the dulcimer strings are arranged, and how to hold the hammers! I thought I was excited to learn before... I'm even more happy and excited now and have some clear, down to earth steps to begin to actually really play with my instrument!

Christine is a fantastic piano teacher! She made me feel comfortable and at ease with what was my first ever exposure to the piano. I didn't feel nervous or anxious. She gave me a good explanation of the basics and clearly communicated what I needed to know so I could perform the required actions. She gave me excellent feedback, correction, and encouragement. I'm very pleased to have her as my piano instructor!

In a fun and easy going atmosphere, I will introduce to the beginners the
Conga drum, how to play correctly and effortlessly all 7 “official” sounds on the Conga. Every class will consist on a routine of proper technique review and warming up exercises, followed by learning basic patterns.

The first couple of lessons will be always geared towards the beginner student. As the student grasped old concepts, then we will move at a faster pace to attend the needs of the intermediate level students.

I am at the beginners level and was Self-conscious and nervous, but Murray was encouraging, Inspiring and made me feel at ease....as much as I could. Lol
Niyama R.
Murray is friendly and accessible. He is able to combine his skill with an obvious love of teaching. His approach seems to emphasize technical skill, fun, and a bit of boldness on the student's part. I appreciate his ability to represent the many potentials of drumming, not just as an art but also as a modality of expression and healing that can meet the needs of the moment for a person or a community.

We had fun and are looking forward to our second lesson. Thank you,

"I had no formal or informal voice training before taking lessons with Arlys. I knew I was at a point where my voice had to improve if I wanted to continue leading in a musical setting. And I knew that if I was going to take voice lessons, I would go with the best instructor possible.

It was clear to me right away that Arlys was the best choice I could have made for an instructor. I noticed a difference in the way I sang the day after the first lesson. By the third lesson, the way I sang was completely transformed. Now I can hardly describe how much my voice has improved from day one.

Arlys is very helpful and encouraging in every lesson, and really knows her stuff when it comes to singing. She also allows her students to play an instrument while singing if they are interested in that, which is helpful to me.

I would recommend Arlys to people who want to dive into voice lessons for the first time like I did. I would also recommend her to anyone looking to take their singing skills to the next level and beyond."

"I've found the right person to build my career

I already had a new music career underway with two releases on the international marketplace, but I knew in order to compete against the masses and gain the attention of more fans, I needed to step things up a notch and push myself far beyond my safety zone. When I spoke with the folks at TakeLessons.com, they told me about Julia, about her credentials, and felt she would be the best fit for me. Julie has been nothing but a blessing! Not only does she have advanced education in music, but she also has the experience to get me where I need to be. Weekly, she has worked with me not only on voice theory and techniques, but I was able to bring my own vocal pieces that we've been working on for my album, and my singing has never been so good! If you're serious and are looking to really change your life with music, this is the person you want and need. I have no desire to go anywhere else."

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists...

How to Sing with a "Raspy Voice" Without Hurting Your Voice

Listen, I love me a good, “gritty” rasp as much as the next person but, there is a time and a place. (Lookin’ at you, Chris Stapleton.) Yes, I said it, a vocal coach who likes to hear the enemy of healthy singing, or raspiness, every once in a while. It’s a great way to evoke emotion not just in your song but to the listener’s ear. They hear that rasp and affiliate it with passion, grit, pain, and so on! However, there is a right way and wrong way to approach raspy singing. Whe …
