My goal as a teacher is to help you reach your musical goals! My lessons consist of scales, duets, and solo repertoire. Each lesson is different depending on the student I am working with, but the core of my teach is based around these 3 areas.

I cannot recommend lessons with Victor more highly! I am a new adult learner, and Victor had all the patience and encouragement in the world for me. He was flexible with my ever-changing work hours, and never showed a hint of frustration or impatience. He is knowledgable, easy to get along with, and a wonderful instructor! Highly, highly recommend!

I'm very good with young students. Flute is very difficult for smaller, younger ones because of the instruments size. And it's difficult to even get a sound sometimes.

My first lesson with Schroeder was a marvelous experience. Amazing enthusiasm he brings to the table. I recommend him to anyone who is beginning or is seeking to move up on the instrument. Can't wait for the next lesson.

Schroeder has done an excellent job teaching my son to play the saxophone. He makes the lessons fun and connects the learning to applicable examples that make sense to my child.

Raycurt is not only knowledgeable, he is extremely skilled. He is thorough and maximizes time by providing superb instruction. My son looks forward to attending his classes; and I am a parent who is beyond pleased with Raycurt’s level of expertise.
Ben E.
This was a really unfortunate and wasted experience. Raycurt was wildly unprepared to teach. He brought a broken metronome and almost no sheet music/lesson plan. I had spoken both to the sales rep and Raycurt himself prior to the lesson and he was still fully unprepared.

I also explained my level of experience and was assured Raycurt was qualified to teach at the level I needed, but he came off as less knowledgable than me, which was particularly disappointing.

Worst of all, after multiple hours of speaking on the phone, I couldn't get my money back for this lesson.

I'd strongly recommend not using takelessons at all, they've put a horrible taste in my mouth for their entire service.

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

In a world full of chaos the challenge is to find a practice that helps you calmly balance your physical & emotional being that you can instantly use anywhere. We will explore and personalize tools intended to help you calmly energize yourself using techniques utilized by singers, actors and public speakers to conquer stage fright & audition nerves.

Briefly, my method for teaching meditation practice is simple and straight forward with focus on a very specific breath exercise with the intent to pull all our physical and mental focus to a central point, helping to distract our 'less quiet' self into being a bit more quiet. The sessions are personalized to each individual's needs, meaning you can meditate from the couch, a comfy chair, or the floor in full lotus position. My environment is optimized for visual beauty and comfort in order to provide a welcoming and nurturing space to meditate. Primarily, we investigate removing restrictions to meditation, to help uncover a practice that

I had such a wonderful first time experience with Arlys that left me feeling refreshed and excited! Arlys has a way of being her authentic self and making you feel comfortable and confident all at the same time. Right away she had some very insightful things to teach me on singing that I will remember to put into practice. Can't wait to go to my next lesson! Thanks Arlys!

"Taylor is an amazing teacher! She really knows how to break down complicated subjects for people like me who have no idea how music theory works and why it's important. My class is divided into theory and actual use of the software which is really a great way to learn the concepts and apply them yourself. We also had a lot of fun jamming out to little songs we made!"

"After years of music classes taken in school, i have really struggled to grasp the concept of learning instruments and the basic fundamentals of music. Currently a college student with a busy schedule, Cody has really changed me from a person who always wanted to play the fiddle to actually accomplishing my goals of playing songs and understanding theory and the instrument more. I would 100% recommend anyone who wants to learn to play the fiddle to reach out and give it a shot. Cody is a phenomenal musician that can play tunes that will make your jaw drop. You will learn from the best teacher who is very kind and considerate of being a beginner and helping you accomplish your goals!"

"Updating my previous review. After 5 sessions, Randy has been able to give me the exact kind of tips and techniques I was hoping for from a teacher; with much more to come I'm sure. For several decades I had neglected any music skills I may have had as a child - even steering clear of a piano or keyboard for fear of someone asking me to sit down and play. I'm confident those fears are waning and will be gone in short order under Randy's lead."

Mr.Ray is the music teacher at my sons' daycare and has been for the last seven years plus.His performance and ability to keep the children interested in the program is amazing! My oldest son Mikey has been at the daycare since he was a year old and is now seven and still gets excited about the annual christmas program.My youngest son Malachi loves mr. ray and talks about him endlessly when he visits the daycare.I believe he is the one who got Malachi so interested in playing the guitar!
