Sophia, my six year old, had her first lesson this evening with Matthew. He was extremely attentive and understood very quickly where she was level-wise and was able to tailor a lesson without hesitation. She really enjoyed her time and I think she got a lot out of it. She can't wait for next week.

I specialize in contemporary music theory and also have an intermediate knowledge of classical theory. Students will learn the basics such as roman numerals for chords, all the way to advanced concepts such as chord scales, modulation and chord substitution. Unless otherwise requested, all lessons will be taught using music notation.

About Sam

Hi! I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of music where I majored in professional music. This included music theory and guitar instruction, as well as reading and writing music notation and charts in different styles. I also play frequently, including shows at The 9:30 Club, The Howard Theater

Sam is great! He is attentive and great with my 9 yo. He is also flexible and easy to schedule. We plan to continue in-home guitar lessons with him for a foreseeable future.
Jaye
Terrible experience. I bought a package of 20 lessons for my 9yo nephew. He looked forward to it ever day from Xmas to the first week of January. Sam canceled the first lesson only 2hours prior its beginning. Then canceled the second lesson 10 minutes before he was supposed to be there because he “forgot” he had a “recording session today”. During the only lesson my nephew had, Sam didn’t show any ability to tailor a lesson to a child. Instead he gave him a pick, which dismayed me, and taught him a rock song we never heard of.
When I contacted the company they were very nice about it but I had to challenge their vetting process of teachers.
Dara
It was an excellent lesson! I really learned a lot from it. I was able to learn one song and start on a second on my first lesson only! Definitely recommend Sam to anyone thinking about picking up the guitar!

I've had experience working with both beginners looking to sing for enjoyment as well as coaching aspiring professionals to refine their craft and move ahead with career goals! I tailor lessons according to your goals while also helping you discover and fulfill your maximum potential. I establish and maintain a calm, safe space for us to explore your voice without pressure or judgment, and encourage your insights and creativity.

I also emphasize the importance of overall musicianship for singers so that they have deeper understanding and appreciation for their musical selection. This can include learning to sight sing, transposing songs to your correct key, accurately communicating preferred tempo and rhythmic feel to other musicians, writing charts in order to work with live bands and so on.

About Rachel

A graduate of Duke Ellington School for the Arts and the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Rachel Panay is a 6 time Billboard Club charting singer/songwriter in the Dance music genre. She recently returned to her musical theatre roots appearing as Rose in Theatre Lab's production of The Secret

Anne
Rachel has taught our son since first grade; he's now in third. She's tailored lessons to his musical taste (the Beatles) while providing a strong foundation on which to build. She's been very flexible and accommodating throughout the switch from in-person to remote lessons, and he really enjoys the time with her. Knowing that so many kids are motivated by short-term goals, she's planned even more recitals during this remote time than when they were solely in-person, and that's been a great motivator for our son to practice.
Stephanie
DO NOT BOOK WITH RACHEL PANAY RAZIEL
It is with deep regret that I have to report that Rachel was clearly INTOXICATED during her lessons with my children today (ages 14 & 11). We will not be using Take Lessons again. There is no way an app can sufficiently vet all these teachers. Please don’t put your children in danger and learn this lesson the hard way like we didi.

Rachel is a great teacher for my 12 year old child. Rachel builds her confidence and meets her exactly where she is at. I highly recommend her.

Think of me as a creative guide rather than a singing teacher. I provide opportunities to develop skills that will help with singing as well as personal artistic growth. You will learn vocal technique, and then be asked to take the next step and create your own style and approach. If you are interested, we can work on creating original compositions and songs. Over the course of my lessons, you will also learn about a variety of foundational musical topics, explore the concept of creativity, and develop your own creative process.

About Kelly

In my lessons, you will get to know the unique qualities of your own voice, then learn to shape and strengthen it through specialized knowledge and easy daily exercises. Every voice matters! I'm here to help you find yours. I am not your traditional voice teacher. Following in the footstep

I have been a vocal student of Kelly for 2 years. I've seen such a drastic improvement. She has helped me to progress far beyond what I thought was possible. I have recently performed in 4 part barbershop quartet. Kelly helped to make that happen! You will love her!

Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

"Raymund has taught our 10 year old daughter guitar for the past year. He has been a fantastic teacher during that time.

He is patient with her, very accommodating to schedule changes, very responsive to questions, provides regular and candid feedback and has brought her from no knowledge of the guitar to being able to play full songs of her choosing.

Raymund is very knowledgeable and is able to get her motivated by allowing her to play at her pace and to play the music she enjoys.

I would highly recommend Raymund to anyone wishing to learn how to play the guitar."

"I learned to play the guitar a couple of years ago and wanted to learn how to add to my arsenal by singing as well along with playing the guitar. I was brutal, tone deaf to the up most degree so I found Kelly online and figured I would give it a go. Kelly is beyond amazing, she makes you feel so comfortable in sessions which was huge because my confidence was low. I have been with Kelly for 5 months now and couldn't be more happy with my progress and confidence to sing. If I could I would see here every day, not only has she help me find my voice and take to where I never thought It could be. My sessions with Kelly are the best part of my week because how fun she makes them. I would recommend Kelly to everyone and anyone from beginner to advance she's truly the best."

How to Use a Capo: 5 Useful Tips

Have you ever been frustrated with the key of a song, and wanted to change it instantly without having to transpose everything and learn new chords? Well, now you can! Learning how to use a capo can be a lifesaver, especially if you enjoy singing along or if you frequently work with vocalists. For an easy, hands-on way to see how a capo works, try playing a normal C chord. Place your capo on the first fret. Then play the same position you just played - you'll notice it's now half-step higher …

What Are the Best Violin Brands for Beginners?

When you’re first starting to look for a violin brand, it's important to find a compromise between affordability and good quality. It’s not always smart to buy the cheapest model available, as not only is this likely to produce a poor sound and hamper any incentive to practice or progress, but it's likely to lose a lot of value on the resale market - it's worth bearing in mind that student models will be resold at some later date, whether you're moving onto something better, or to another in …
