About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

I enjoyed learning from Christian today. I am 70 years old and did not feel out of place. He made me comfortable and he is very knowledgeable about how to go about teaching. He was very polite and patient with me and was able to go over things and explain professionally in a manner that did not insult my intelligence. He seems dedicated to teaching and does it very well .
I highly recommend this man to anyone that wants to learn how to play the Piano.
Wade J.
Christian has been top-notch in every way I could hope for. His communication prior to and after the lesson has been stellar, taking time to prep me then follow up with thorough, well written tips and details. (It's clear that he values the student's time as much as his own, and seeks to make the experience individualized and worthwhile for those he teaches.) The lesson itself was spot-on, being well balanced in both fun and degree of challenge. Feel very fortunate to have found him!
Cayden
Christian easily connects with my teenage son. He is professional while at the same time relaxed and easy-going. He stresses the importance of learning the basics but there is no high pressure. He strives to teach music that is interesting to my son and that challenges him. He does a great job of explaining things. We are happy we chose Christian as our teacher.

Learn how to write songs, develop songwriting ideas, improve your lyrics, and discover new and interesting ways to compose music. Learn how to write the songs down (in music notation) so you can play them with other musicians. Learn to transcribe songs that you like (pick up by ear) and use them for inspiration. You can also work on playing and singing your songs (developing your performance), since I teach those subjects too!

I'm a 49 year old trying to take my piano skills to the next level. Kelly is very patient and after just two lessons I've learned quite a lot. Looking forward to continuing with her and highly recommend.
Daniel
Kelly is easy to connect with and took the time to find out what my interests were so that she could create a plan oriented towards my goals.
Ryder G.
We are return customers to Kelly. My son loved her as a piano teacher but we stopped when he was taking trumpet during school. Now that he’s over trumpet, we excitedly reenrolled with Kelly. She’s so encouraging and positive. We just did my son’s first online lesson through TakeLessons and it worked flawlessly. I’d recommend Kelly in a heartbeat.

Stephanie is great. She’s very knowledgeable and patient. I never thought I’d be taking singing lessons or any kind of vocal training. But, after trying it out on a whim, I’m hooked and want to continue improving.
Linda
Stephanie has been an amazing vocal teacher for me!! In the past few months that I have been learning with her, she has helped me find confidence in my singing voice and has taught me valuable techniques to help me develop better vocal skills. I definitely feel like I’m singing in a healthier way and have better range. Stephanie is super patient and diligent in her work and is always willing to provide feedback and help throughout the week in between lessons. Could not recommend taking lessons with her more :)

Stephanie is an amazing teacher. She knows her stuff and cares about her students making improvements and reaching their goals. Excellent!
