About Patrick

The Vocal Artist A rare 'natural' tenor, Patrick's range and versatility are evidenced throughout his work. From Bach Cantatas to Broadway tunes, he's even dared to sing Denver, bringing audiences to tears with his own rendition of Annie's Song. He is a torch song tenor, a la Rondstadt's 'Round Midnight but with the power and passion of Pavarotti. Like most classically-trained tenors, Patrick can list many of the master works among his repertoire. Starting with Michigan Opera Theatre's Opera-in-Residence program, he performed in Madame Butterfly, Die Fledermaus and The Mikado and others. In Detroit & Windsor Ontario, he performed Bach, Schubert, Handel, Dubois, Mozart and Dvorak. While Patrick's early career focused on classical sacred performances, his real passion is to ...

Awesome!

I needed to practice a solo for my Easter Vigil Psalm performance, and he helped me take care of my instrument, taught me great exercises, and gave me good advice about my career. He is a very nice instructor. He will help you grow as a singer and performer, and you always learn something new everyday with him...I highly recommend him to everyone because he really knows music theory.

"From your mouth to Patrick's ear*...

I was looking for an experienced and patient teacher, one who really listens, and am lucky enough to be able to work with Patrick. He not only hears the singing, but has the flexibility and talent to adapt to the needs and concerns of the singer. Highly recommended. *"From your mouth to G*d's ear," is a Jewish expression meaning, "May what you just said be true!"

We are lucky to have found her!!!

Around a year ago, my daughter decided she wanted to learn to play the guitar! Thanks to Google, we ran into TakeLessons.
Nicole was recommended to us. After reading about her we were quite impressed!
Right after the first lesson and to my surprise, my (very shy) daughter had a great 1st experience with Nicole.
Nicole is a professional in her field AND also in handling kids and knowing how to help them overcome their shyness. She brings out the best in my daughter and also encourages her to sing even write her own notes!
I would highly recommend Nicole. She is truly talented and the greatest teacher!!!

Drum · In studio
I have studied drum set with Alphonse on and off for years. He always knows what I need and can assess my needs immediately. He will teach you everything you need and want to know from the beginner through the advanced drummer and may even jam along with you once the time is right on any of the many other instruments that he is proficient at playing including piano, trumpet, congas, and more! If I lived next door to Alphonse and had unlimited time I would schedule a lesson every day, that is how inspiring lessons with Alphonse are. Alphonse is the best, to that I can attest!

Teresa Y. Northridge, CA

About Teresa

A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened to what I wanted to learn." These stories and her own passion for music-making inform her approach. A degreed music educator and multi-instrumentalist, she celebrates and uses the musical interests of her students to move them forward. She has three grown sons, including two touring musicians. Their musical lives also influence her work with children, young people, and adults. The point is to celebrate and develop each student's unique, interest-based musical self-expression. In her home

Teresa is an excellent music teacher!
My daughter received a ukulele as a gift from her grandparents. My husband and I wanted her to take lessons, but we were hesitant. She had taken music lessons previously, with a different instructor, with little success and mostly frustration. But then we found Teresa.......
Teresa took the time to learn about my daughter's strengths and weaknesses, and planned her lessons accordingly. She utilizes several different teaching modalities into her lessons (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) with amazing results. Teresa is a truly dedicated teacher who is both knowledgeable and passionate about what she does. My daughter looks forward to each lesson!

Teresa is such a wonderful teacher and great with the girls. She's patient and generous as a teacher. She allows the girls to use their intuitive musical skills in her teachings. Teresa allows students to think outside the box along with traditional piano teachings. Overall Teresa is amazing!!!
Daniel I. Van Nuys, CA

About Daniel

I've been teaching for almost 20 years. In that time I've had students of all ages, abilities and personalities. From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curriculum. I've had a thorough conservatory training at The Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy where I studied composition, music history, theory, counterpoint, orchestration as well as piano, voice, and more. My professional experience is extensive. I've been doing commercial scoring for 12 years, I have experience with modern recording and engineering techniques and I play many instruments. Drawing on my solid conservatory training as well as years of experience as a ...

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for the past 3 years. During this time we have seen a lot of growth in our son's musical abilities. We really appreciate Daniel's patience and flexibility within his lesson plan. Our son had learned theory, music history and practiced ear training all within his lessons. Recently our son was writing a "score" for one of his home made movies. Daniel was able to give him "real world" advice and incorporate that into his lesson. We are thrilled to have been referred to Daniel and look foreword to having our 4 year old start lessons next year.

Daniel is an awesome instructor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about music and knows how to teach and convey that enthusiasm about music to his students. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly harmonic lessons with him.

I'm also very happy with how my daughter is advancing in her piano lessons wit h Daniel. Right after we switched over to Daniel for her piano lessons I noticed a huge improvement in her musical abilities.

Thank you, Daniel!
