I had taken guitar lessons as a kid, but hadn't played in many years. During our first lesson, John figured out my skill level and started the lessons on the right track. I've enjoyed our lessons and the "assignments" he has given me, which are just what I wanted.
Chris
Great first lesson. Just the right level of difficulty. John is very patient and helpful.

I have no strings background and I thoroughly enjoyed my first Ukulele lesson with Aleksis. Not only did we go through techniques, we also got to play a Bob Marley song at the end of the lesson. Who knew it was possible to play an entire song on the first lesson?! It was really fun and I really look forward to our next lesson.

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

My son really enjoyed his first lesson. He is looking forward to the next session 😊.
Shreya B.
I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Kept missing class without any heads up so I had to just wait around and hope he'll show up, ignored my calls and messages to reschedule, so I had to just get a refund from TakeLessons. As a teacher he is good, but very unprofessional behavior in terms of accountability and respect for students' time.

I’m a super beginner. So far so good! He starts from the beginning and doesn’t make you feel dumb.

Evan was a great Bass teacher. I had fun every lesson and got significantly better at the instrument.

Tony has been a wonderful guitar and singing teacher, and has helped me learn new techniques and improve the skills I already had in just a few weeks! He has a diverse skill set (that I am only scraping the surface of), is very reassuring, and reminds me to find the joy in music. I think he would be a great fit for any type of guitar player/singer regardless of genre or age. His lessons feel perfectly tailored for the type of musician that I want to be.

Tony has a really good ear and easily picks up my areas to work on.

He also tailors my lessons around developing strong points while strengthening weak points.

It has only been 2/3 weeks and I can already feel and hear a lot of improvement.

Thanks Tony!

He's awesome! Makes learning a new instrument fun.
