I am a professional songwriter with a passion for teaching the songwriting craft! My specialty is custom music, meaning that the majority of the songs that I am hired for professionally are tailored to something specific, meaning they tell me the style, and lyrical theme they are looking for, and I make it happen. I like to make my songwriting lessons just as customized, so that my students can learn what will be most valuable to them. We will analyze and utilize techniques that are being used in songs that speak to you, so that the original songs you write can measure up to the music that you love.

About Taylor

I started writing songs when I was 8 years old and never stopped! I attended the Academy of the Performing Arts Huntington Beach High School, and from there studied Commercial Music and Writing at Brigham Young University. I have written and produced 3 personal pop EPs, and have released several s

Want help discovering what YOUR best voice sounds like? I'd love to help!

I'm a singer/songwriter with over 10 years of experience singing in various settings, from choirs and church bands to performing background vocals and recording in studios. As a teacher and as a vocalist, vocal health is a priority for me. I want to use the knowledge I've gathered over the years to ensure that students have the tools to sing well for as long as they can. I look forward to working with you!

Kaciny is the BEST!!! I am extremely grateful to have been taught singing lessons by her. Her patience, and loving way of teaching, as well as knowledge, was exactly what I needed to feel more comfortable in my own body and with finding my own voice. She has such a great balance of being a teacher/friend. I would highly recommend Kaciny to anyone just starting out, or wanting to refresh their skills. 10 stars!!!

We love working with Kaciny. She is a voice coach to my daughter and had provided both in-home voice lessons and currently doing them online. She is extremely talented, professional and has a way with children that brings out the best in them.

I have nothing but good things to say about Amy! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed our lessons together so far and look forward to learning more with her in every lesson!
Roni
This is our family's third year of online lessons with Miss Amy and we feel incredibly blessed to have her as our teacher! We adore her teaching and the unique way she has of getting our two boys (now 15 and 13) to think about their music and what it takes to make beautiful music! She is so amazing! She is incredibly loving and has patients to rival Job! For anyone who feels online lessons can't work please know that we are proof that love is the greatest teacher and with love anyone can be successful!

We love you so much, Miss Amy! Thank you for being truly wonderful! Our entire family feels blessed and changed for the better because of you!

Amy is a great teacher. She made the cello seem exciting and approachable. Not so scary. :) I’m looking forward to my next lesson and many more! Thank you, Amy!

Relatable and experienced Trombone and Brass teacher looking for beginner/intermediate level students! All ages welcome, no one is too young or too old to learn as long as you like music and want to learn your instrument. We will set goals together based on how YOU want to sound and what music YOU want to play. I will do my best to offer you the knowledge and experience I have while relating it to other concepts/experiences you already possess. In lessons, you can expect to work on tone, embouchure, breathing, rhythms, lip slurs, etc.

Once we have a handle on the basics, I'll arrange music hand tailored for my student based on what music they like to listen to! I've done music for students all ages and many genres. A few examples of favorites are The Polar Express movie soundtrack music, Back to the Future soundtrack, Bad guy by Billie Ellish, We Are Number One from Lazy Town, and many others.

I hope you're excited about these lessons as much as I am because nothing makes me smile ...

Students will work towards learning music by the great classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Kabalevsky, Schubert, Grieg and many more! In addition to classical studies, we will visit other genres of music including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop, etc. However, creating a classical foundation is fundamental and essential to developing proper technique and artistry.

You want to learn to play the piano? Then, Ruth is the one you want! I’ve never played the piano before now and Ruth has been there with me, patiently teaching me and guiding me. Now, I can play tunes I even recognize and it’s a lot of fun! I think you’re gonna like her.
Tom Bruce
I am a 61 year old retired teacher, and I have been been taking weekly lessons with Ruth for the past 8 months as a beginner student. She is an excellent teacher showing lots of patience and encouragement. She makes learning the piano a fun and challenging experience. Together we set weekly goals for my playing that keep me progressing and improving at a steady rate. I would highly recommend Ruth for both children and adults.
Tom B.
Ruth is an awesome instructor. She is very patient and has a unique way of making the lessons fun and relaxed. I am 61 years old and revisiting the piano after not playing for 45 years. Ruth has made the lessons very productive. Each week I feel like I've really progressed! Yea!!

"Comprehensive, Fun, and Professional

My younger brother and I both have taken lessons through Bill for quite some time now.

Bill has been fantastic, and can accomodate to players of all levels. I've been playing for years, and Bill is able to provide practice materials relevant to my musical interests, appropriately scaling up the difficulty of what we're working on. Ranging from famous straight-ahead jazz solos, to tricky classical etudes, I'm happy to know my overall musical technique, repertoire, and general skill will continue to grow at the pace right for me.

My younger brother is taking some more beginner clarinet lessons, and couldn't agree more. He always looks forward to lesson day, seeing what new notes and scales he'll get to play through!"

"My 11-year-old son has now had 3 lessons with Jeremy, and we are both extremely happy with his progress. My eldest had saxophone lessons through takelessons.com, but he already had some experience. I'm pleasantly surprised that with no prior trumpet experience, and without anyone else in our family playing trumpet, my son is doing really well. Jeremy is patient, kind, and encouraging. He does an excellent job explaining what he is looking for and takes a systematic approach in structuring the lessons."

"James is an amazing artist and communicator. He brings a wealth of experience to the table ranging from singing, playing guitar, putting a band together, recording, writing, to performing. He also knows the difficulties of living the artists/musicians life, as both he and his wife are performing artists. He loves sharing these incredible experiences with his students, making them applicable to the student's situation.

Although my son sees himself as a lead for his band, he comes across a bit shy and unassuming. James has been great at addressing this and pulling my son out of his comfort zone so he can reach his ultimate goal.

Also, my son was extremely particular about who he wanted as a voice teacher. I thought I would never find one to fit the bill. James was a perfect fit. I anticipate we'll be in touch with him routinely as my son pursues his music career.
