About Gabriel

I view my role as an educator to be bigger than simply training a performer. I believe in creating a complete musician--one who thinks deeply about music. I accomplish this by working on, yes, the technical aspects of playing an instrument, but also through constant listening, ear-training, theory

We will make sure each student understands the foundation, then build from there. Some students require different approaches to learning, and I work with the students' strengths to help them build their knowledge.

Using your primary instrument, we will explore the theoretical foundations of music for that instrument, while drawing basic parallels to other instruments.

Music is a language of sonic and physical expression. Symbols written and spoken are needed to communicate this art. Basis of composition.

I have a easy step by step system which makes the language self explanatory.
Within a month you could start writing your own music

This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I've been teaching music theory for more than 10 years. I LOVE music theory and incorporate it into all of my instrumental lessons with my students. I am really passionate about teaching others to understand how and why music works. Theory is also really important to study if you're interested in composing your own music. I teach beginner through college level 3.

About Megan

Megan is an excellent music teacher that helped show me different ways to overcome challenges that I was having. She is very patient and kind and she worked hard to make connections with me and personalize my lessons.
Willa
I honestly think one of the best decisions of my life was deciding to take a lesson with a music teacher I found through a friend. I was nine and desperate to find a teacher who would take me seriously and help me grow as a musician. I remember first liking her Harry Potter necklace, and then being so surprised that she taught me in an hour the chords I had been trying to learn on my own for six months. Six years later, Megan has become not only my mentor, best friend, and biggest supporter, but has also modeled for me how to be a strong, confident woman in today's society. She constantly pushes me to be better, and she is always there for me whether it be for music theory questions or movie suggestions. I would not be where I am today musically, lyrically, or emotionally without Megan and her amazing lessons. I owe so so much to her and continue to learn so much from every class. She is everything I hope to be and the best teacher anyone could hope for.
Amanda
Megan has been instructing my sons for over 8 years. She began with piano but as their interests grew and changed, she helped them move to learning the electric bass, drums and ukulele. My kiddos have very strong personalities. I do not put them in classes with just anyone. Megan has consistently showed up with strength and excellence, inviting my sons to not just grow in their love for music but in their character. They have learned to persevere when things are challenging and Megan is there to guide them in that with a mastery that is hard to find anywhere else. As an educator myself, I have been deeply impressed with Megan’s musical ability and her absolute to connect with and instruct my kids. She has been a huge part of their development, not just in the arts but in their lives.

"Jimmy is a great instructor. He takes you seriously no matter what you skill or knowledge level is. When I started with Jimmy I could play guitar but generally only Cowboy chords.

Jim was patient, he analyzed how I played , what I knew and he tailored lessons around what I knew. That way I got the most out of my time and money spent. I can go on and on about Jimmy but for you sake I'll just say that I highly recommend him"

She will go out of her way to check on my progress musically and see how I'm doing throughout the work week.

I'm very grateful for her dedication to the art of music. Anyone who is looking for a caring instructor; look no further than Ms. Christine."

"Honestly I couldn't have picked a better teacher. Above all else, Christian really takes the time to help you understand what he's teaching and how to apply it to your own playing. I've been playing guitar for 10 years now and before I started taking lessons from him, I never knew how much I didn't know. Every lesson is fun and engaging and definitely well worth the rate.
