Very knowledgeable and experienced in not just playing the violin but teaching it as well.
Chris T.
At the age of 58 I decided to start taking violin lessons for 2 reasons, enjoyment of playing music and exercise my brain. I found Lucy K on the takelessons.com website and she was able to accommodate my request for lessons in my home on a Sunday. Starting from scratch, she taught me the fundamentals of playing and I have made some progress over the last 8 months. She is patient with me yet will push me along and at time bring me out of my comfort zone, which is good. She has the ability and training to teach students from early age to older adults like me. In addition, she also teaches piano, which my wife started lessons with Lucy K at the same time I started violin. She has my recommendation if you have interest in either violin or piano.

Maureen has been a wonderful clarinet teacher! Being an adult who is picking up the clarinet again, I like how Maureen provides a balance of theory, exercises, improvision, and various methods to help me in my playing.

LisaJo is an incredible teacher. I was hoping to take in-person lessons, but due to the pandemic I (reluctantly) opted for online instead. All my doubts have been cast away... LisaJo's infectious enthusiasm leaps through the screen and her competencies as both a teacher and musician are evident through her ability to provide clear, creative instruction that translates directly into progress. I always look forward to my lessons - I'm learning lots but also having a great time with it :) I super recommend LisaJo if you're looking to learn violin!

LisaJo is so patient and she shows me lots of details I should pay attention to.
I highly recommend her to other students.

Best teacher ever!!!!! I went from knowing absolutely nothing about the violin to playing in the Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra after 2yrs of lessons. Through our lessons together Mrs. Lisa Jo taught me technique yes, but she also taught me so much more. She instilled in me a love for music and it’s many intricacies that I will cherish forever. Truly an amazing teacher

"Diane is a fabulous teacher!! When my daughter wanted to start violin and fiddle I knew I would need to know something about violin to help her at home. So, Diane taught my 5 year old and me. Diane really has an amazing bond with my daughter and has truly become one of our family... She makes the lessons fun and engaging for my daughter... She takes a personal interest in her students and gears the lessons to their level. Diane is always willing to work with you when it comes to schedules as well, for example: summer time vacations.... I highly recommend Diane as an instructor. She knows her instrument, her theory, and how to convey the information to adults and small children. We have now been taking lessons for a couple of years and my daughter still looks forward to them and that is due to the investment that Diane has personally made in their relationship!"
