I have been incorporating theory into the lessons for the 25 plus years I've been teaching. It's an integral part of learning each piece and additional books can be used to reinforce new concepts if needed.

I have an M.A. in Reading, which has been invaluable in analyzing learning styles and teaching to each student's strengths. I have been teaching piano for over

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.
Vi
I cannot recommend Lilan highly enough as a piano teacher. She is calm, patient, and dedicated in making sure you learn both the basics of piano and intricacies of any piece you want to play. She is also an excellent pianist - check out her videos on this page! Thanks, Lilan!

Great first lesson!
Eliza
Margaret was very professional and patient with my 7 year old.
Natasha
This was my first lesson but she helped me correct the mistakes I was making holding the fiddle and the bow, and she is very encouraging while I am learning to play and still making not so pretty sounds. She made me feel comfortable making mistakes and I was not nervous at all. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.

I will teach you to play from an emotional center and tell stories with your lead a guitar playing. I specialize in jam band guitar playing. This style, most typified by Jerry Garcia and Trey Anastasio, borrows from rock, blues and bluegrass. It is known for emphasis on soaring climaxes during improvised sets.

Why do some guitar players "noodle' instead of flow? The short answer is they are unclear about what they want to say and they are nervous. I will teach you to get the note from your inner ear to your fretboard. I will also teach you how to stay in a flow state. My lessons combine theory, ergonomics, mindfulness and journaling. The result will be confidence, clarity and the development of your own voice.

About Henry

I have been playing guitar, writing songs and singing for over thirty years. I believe that playing music is one of the most profound experiences that we can have on earth! I am also a yogi, meditator and hypnotist. I believe our mindset deeply affects our ability to have fun and progress. I do te

"Great teacher

It is out of sheer luck that TakeLessons.com introduced me
to Blythe. As an adult student, I started learning the violin
decades too late, and yet with Blythe's patience and her
effective techniques in helping me correct errors, I am
steadily progressing. One day my dream of playing the violin may
actually come true, and I will always be grateful that Blythe has made this possible."
