I mentioned to Gregory specifically I wanted to learn, which was GarageBand for iPad. He told me he taught middle schoolers and to book with him. I asked for more specificity on could he teach this exact thing, to make sure there was no confusion (please check the conversation he and I had within the takelessons website) and he kept saying book with me. I did.

He may know a thing or two about GarageBand (I don't know that for sure), but he knew very little about iPad GarageBand. It was a complete waste of my time. In text messages I said to him that I would not give him a bad review, but I was going to ask for a refund. He said thank you for not leaving a bad review. But then he wouldn't allow refund. Good God!

So here we are. He wasted 2.5 hours of my time, cost me parking in the city, didn't teach me literally anything, and he wouldn't give up the 50 bucks

All that said, now here I am having to take more of my time that could be used for productive purposes, to have to write a bad review. He really deserves this.

Very nice. It would have been better if I knew what books to purchase ahead of time. To maximize the lesson time, teacher should send expectations and tips for success to students ahead so preparation can take place. Be sure to have your own equipment too.

My 4 yr old son had sooo much energy but Mr. Brown was able to get him to calm down enough to learn so basic key strokes. Can't wait to see how lesson 2.

I have been teaching piano since 2014 after graduation from college with a Bachelor's in Management and Piano Minor. I have been a church pianist for over 10 years and specialize in Hymnplaying Improvisation. The age range is 4 and up and I use a variety of methods depending on the student. Music for Little Mozarts, Thompson, Bastien and my own supplemental materials are some of the methods and techniques I use to develop good piano skills and a love for music!

My teaching style is fun, interactive, and paced to the student. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and begin your musical adventure!

Hi everyone!

It is a pleasure for me to teach music. I have been teaching piano and cello for more than ten years. All my students no matter which level of playing are having a good quality time in the lesson. Through my lesson, student learns music from different genres such as music theory,music history, ear training and music appreciation. Because of that, my student always tends to learn quicker than they expected.
Besides teaching, I also perform. My philosophy in music learning is that, it is never easy to learn an instrument. Therefore, learning in a creative atmosphere and giving out precise guidance is not only good for students, but also good for me. By exploring music together each week, it will be a fun and engaging experience for both of us towards music learning.

About Alice
I am a classically trained pianist and piano/ cello teacher. By more than ten years of teaching experience, learning with me is going to be engaging and enchanting. I chose the right method books and design the lesson plan/ practice plan according to your needs. Through my lesson, you are not only learning music but also having a great time learning.

I held a Master degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music, , as well as a bachelor degree in piano performance from Taipei National University of the arts. By 27 years of indulging in music, I have to say, it is such a fulfilling journey!

Therefore, I would like to meet all of you. No matter what age you are, what level of playing you are, don't be hesitate to talk to me. I love meeting people and sharing musical thoughts. Looking forward to meeting you.

Arlington, VA

I want to inspire my students of all ages to reach their potential as musicians. I work with my students on sheet reading, key and time signatures, developing an understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, and proper technique. My lessons are tailored to the student’s interests, goals and skill level.

About Lilan
I started my classical music training at four years old and continued formal lessons until high school. I grew up in a very musical household as my father is also a professional musician.

Through my formal training and my further study, I have built up a substantial knowledge of music theory. At 11, I began playing percussion instruments and played in my school band through college (Shanghai Jiaotong University). At 13, I earned my level 10 piano performance certificate, which is the highest level in China.

During my time at University, I toured with the band throughout Eastern Asia and Europe. I also performed for Hillary Clinton’s visit to Shanghai and have performed musical solos multiple times at the Shanghai Grand Theater.

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to and playing popular music and classical pieces, particularly
those by Bach and Chopin. For more information, please do not hesitate to ask.

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.

What I enjoy most about teaching piano is:

The opportunity to transform the piano into much more than a box with buttons that sits collecting dust day after day in millions of homes around the world, but rather an instrument capable of communicating every type of human emotion in limitless ways, that is, if our physical bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain=

As a musician who takes excellent care of his health and wellness through a wide-range of physical activities and sound (pun intended) nutrition, I'm a firm believer that playing the piano requires tremendous physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is consistently proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in sports and other athletic/physical training outside of studying music.

Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies, which instantly heightens their overall musicianship and individual artistic expression.

About John
What I enjoy most about teaching piano:

The opportunity to transform the piano into more than a box with black and white buttons, but rather, a device capable of communicating every human emotion in limitless ways, that is, if our physical bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain:

As a musician who takes great care of his health through a wide-range of physical activities and sound (pun intended) nutrition, I'm a firm believer that playing the piano requires tremendous physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is constantly proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in sports or any other physical training outside of studying music. Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies. This instantly heightens their overall musicianship and individua
l artistic expression.

My approach to piano lessons simply put is: How do we form as close a physical bond as possible between the instrument and student? In terms of piano, I acheive this goal by training the student's hands to move; in the best way; in the right way; in the most healthiest way; in an athletic way.

Now, you *do not* have to be an athlete to see results. My point is= I take an athletic position in terms of teaching piano.

I fully understand music theory, chords, scales and rhythm. So does every other teacher.

What other teachers *do not know* is: How to teach students of any age how best to move at the piano.

This specifically is what seperates me from 99 percent of piano teachers.

Overall point= If we did not have a body with which to move, we would not be able to make any music at all. So on a fundamental level, your body is the first thing that needs to be trained when learning a new instrument.

Classically trained pianist and youth soccer coach. In my free time, I enjoy reading, composing music or playing sports.

I will make sure to communicate and understand the specific goals my potential student may have and diligently work towards them.

About Saad
I am an aspiring singer, songwriter, pianist, recording artist and sound designer. i am currently studying at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every one has a ability to succeed; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Are you a complete beginner, or are you looking to dust off the keys and pick up where you left off? With over five years of teaching experience and a lifetime of playing, I provide customized private lessons based on each student's skill, pace, and learning style. An age appropriate curriculum is chosen to maximize both learning and enjoyment. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome! During lessons, students will learn proper hand techniques, artistic expression, and music theory while mastering songs from classical, folk, jazz, and pop genres. If you're interested, send me a message!

About Christine
I have been teaching the piano since 2010 after graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. My goal as a teacher is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their own musical journey, whether they pursue the piano for the rest of their lives, switch to other instruments, or decide to pursue other interests.

I started studying the piano when I was four and began participating in piano competitions in the 5th grade. When I was in 8th grade, I won first place in a concerto competition and was able perform my piece before a live audience, while accompanied by an orchestra. That opportunity helped me realize that I love sharing music with others, be they students, fellow musicians, or members of an audience. Throughout the years, I have pursued this love by playing the p
iano for/with friends and family, singing in choirs, and playing the violin in orchestras and ensembles. While attending the University of Maryland, I was a member of the Gamer Symphony Orchestra, where I sung with the choir and led the soprano and alto sections in rehearsal. Today, I also work as a piano accompanist and church musician, where I sing with the choir and play the violin, in addition to playing the piano.
