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.

Private Viola Teacher

I am a professional violist who has been teaching strings for nearly a decade, and I have been performing on the viola for over two decades. I use a body-oriented approach that helps violists play with ease and artistry. This approach includes a mix of Alexander Technique, body mapping, Karen Tuttle Coordination, Suzuki pedagogy, and my own curriculum around somatic movement education. In addition with ear training, note reading, playing by ear (or, active transcribing), and improvising, I help students learn jazz tunes, their favorite songs, and classical pieces, no matter the difficulty. We work with the Suzuki books and other training materials from my library. For the advanced student, I invite them to bring pieces they're working on, so that I may help them build their repertoire and prepare for auditions. Most importantly, I guide students on how to solve problems that show up in their practice and how to become their own teachers. Are you ready to get started?

About Anastasia

I am a singer, violist, voice coach, music educator, somatic movement educator, and interdisciplinary artist. I hold two degrees: a Bachelor of Science from the University of Vermont and a Bachelor of Music from the UNC School of the Arts. Born and raised in Memphis, TN, I grew up singing gospel

An Ya is an amazing musician. She doesn't only teach people like me how to sing. She's out there in the real world... playing her viola and singing in front of crowds throughout the region. In my experience with An Ya, she adapted my vocal lessons to work specifically on areas where I was struggling. She always seem to drill down to the real root of the vocal problem I was having and helped me improve. I wasn't able to stick with lessons as long as I had hoped, due to conflicts with my work schedule. However, I came away from my time with An Ya with better control over my diaphragm and a stronger "head" voice. Thanks to An Ya, I'm a better singer than I was before.

Private Viola Teacher

I feel what makes taking lessons with me unique is my experience teaching private violin and viola lessons in Texas public schools (grades 6-12) and my career as a professional musician having performed in many orchestral, opera, and chamber music settings. Through the lens of that performed experience, I know how crucial an education that includes classical music can be in a student’s overall academic development and maturation. Though not everyone pursues music as a career, no matter the student’s age, I wish to ultimately be a positive support system in fostering their development in their mirrored desirability to make classical music and incorporate it's richness and beauty into their life.

"For two years, I took viola lessons with Chen. In my seven years of studying music, I can confidently say that Chen has been one of my favorite music teachers.

Chen is a very effective teacher. He is very patient and is constantly thinking of new ways to tackle solving a student’s struggles. If you put in the time, work, and practice, he will help you to advance in playing your instrument with greater proficiency.

Since Chen is very knowledgeable in his craft, he helped me to know what to look for when purchasing a new bow. He knows many practice strategies and techniques to get your scales, etudes, and repertoire to become performance ready.

When I first started taking lessons with Chen, I could hardly play the viola at all. After two years of learning under his instruction, he had guided me to learn and develop the skills needed to get me through three college orchestra concerts, becoming the principal viola in that orchestra, performing two college solo recitals, and joining a university community orchestra.

Thanks to Chen, he has taken me to levels of proficiency with the viola I would never imagine I would get to. If you are looking to learn how to play violin or viola, I would definitely recommend Chen as your teacher. Thank you, Chen."

"Zachary is a great instructor and friendly , you won't feel the stress of a regular class.I can say that I am always excited to learn because of the motivation he give. I wasn't sure at the beginning that the online lessons would work effectively and that I will see great results. I have already had 5 sessions and still have 15 left. He is so patient and gives a clear guidance to improve your level. Each week there is a prepared plan of what we will focus on depending on the performance which means you take the full use of every minute in the class. Also ,the weekly homework or exercises given helps you to know what to do to improve between each class.

Totally recommend"

"This review is for myself and my daughter who are both taking lessons with Theresa. We give Theresa S. 5 stars each for being a great teacher and 5 stars for her location being very good for us. In addition, she made us feel very comfortable as if we had known her a long time. Her passion for her music and love of teaching makes her very enjoyable to be with. When we hit a bad note, her enthusiasm and the way we kept moving forward, I found, made us strive harder to get it right. We are both looking forward to many weeks under her direction."
