Great learning experience with Eric.
David
I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

Great experience! Looking forward to more.

Ear training is an essential skill for instrument learning. From years of playing horn and conservatory theory, I have gained experience in aural recognition. We will work on prepared and sight-singing along with dictation as a fundamental part of the lesson.

Our first class was amazing! Xin is bursting with positive energy, kindness, and patience. She’s exactly what my 9 year old hopeful musician needs right now! Can’t wait to continue classes with her!

Xi is VERY knowledgeable of the art of horn playing. I understand what she is saying without difficulty. She knows what she is doing and her skill in teaching is above average. I’m so thankful to have found a teacher who respects where I am at 54 and how to help me get back in the game. The work is up to me of course, but she been very real and encouraging along the way. Well done!

Dynamic and effective lessons. Fundamentals of horn playing explained thoroughly through fun, easy to follow drills and video clips from the instructor. Each student gets a designated share drive with lesson notes, assignments, technique videos etc.

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.

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.

Alex is a well-prepared, patient, and encouraging instructor. As a beginning trumpet student, I was self-conscious about my ability but Alex has helped me feel comfortable not only as a trumpet player, but as a musician. I would highly recommend working with him!

Want to hone your ability to play a song by ear? Hear a melody in your head and then be able to recreate it on your instrument? If so, you'll find a lot of value in focusing on ear training. With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best. I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!

Johah is very patient and flexible. He identifies and is willing to work on techniques, such as barre chords, in a way that finally helps me to stop the buzzing! I am looking forward to working with him.

My 15 year old son has been taking virtual guitar lessons with Jonah and has loved it. Jonah is a great teacher who really gets on my son’s level and connects. It’s a fun thing for him to do during this strange year.

"It has been a pleasure having Yoon Jae as a teacher. He took a very personalized approach with my ear training, developing a solid idea of my strengths and weaknesses before honing in on specific issues. What sets him apart is that he's adamant about reinforcing the musical applications of the skills I'm developing, and he challenges me in ways that never feel dry or superfluous. I've seen great improvement in the relatively short time I've been with him."

"Rachel is an extremely wonderful teacher and vocalist. I mainly sing Musical Theatre but have a background in Classical. When I feel like I'm beginning to develop unhealthy singing habits, I usually go back to my classical roots. So finding a teacher with experience in both Musical Theatre and Classical voice is extremely important to me. Rachel really focuses on the technique and finds a way to describe it and apply it in terms her students understand. I highly recommend her whether you have a background Musical Theatre, Classical, both, or more. She'll get you singing with a healthy voice in no time!"
