Christina D. Brentwood, NY

About Christina

I am a classical singer and pianist from Wisconsin! I started playing music at the age of three on the piano and began voice lessons at 15. While in graduate school in Las Vegas, I started teaching both voice and piano lessons and found how much I loved imparting my knowledge to others and watching them make progress. I have performed leading roles in Operas and soloed in orchestral concerts and recitals. I mainly perform opera/classical but love musical theatre as well. My performing experience has taught me a lot which I am eager to pass on to my students! I have been teaching with Takelessons since my move to NYC in 2011. *** Lesson Details *** As a teacher, I try to create a lesson environment that is relaxed and open but still efficient. I have specific requests for you

I am a professional actress/singer who has been easing back into performing as my children grow more independent. I am rusty vocally due to recent successful vocal cord surgery. Michael is the ultimate professional - patient, knowledgeable, and kind. I am thrilled that I found him and look forward to my next lesson.

As a choir conductor and church musician, I encountered all kinds vocal challenges from classical style to contemporary one. I'm very happy that Dr. Douglas is able to answer every question I brought to him. His experience and knowledge directly helped me toward my own breakthrough in vocal performance. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Douglas!
Nikki L. Medford, NY

About Nikki

Hello there! For the past nine years I have taught students of all ages and ability. In addition to maintaining a private studio, I have also taught at the college level as a graduate teaching assistant. While enrolled in flute lessons, students will receive instruction on developing tone, technique and musicality on the flute as well as focus on proper breathing and posture. In addition to being coached on practicing techniques, problem solving and setting and achieving realistic goals, students will learn how to constructively and positively assess their own playing. This creates a sense of ownership that allows the student to blossom into a mature musician and lifelong lover of music. This is my primary goal and purpose as a teacher. I am looking forward to meeting you and ...

Craig's Patience and Knowledge

Craig is very knowledgeable and patient. I am an older student (64) who started lessons at age 4 and then my playing became sporadic, sometimes not playing for weeks at a time. Craig has been focusing on open chords and using the Jazz repertoire to put concepts into practice. I tend to be a little hard on myself and Craig has helped me with that, too. His suggestion of working on songs two measures at at time has been very helpful

Great teacher!

Craig is an excellent teacher and a very nice, person. He teaches piano to three of us and easily adjusts his lessons for each of our competency levels. His instructions are easy to follow and his suggestions for mastering skills work. Our lessons are friendly and low pressure. I would highly recommend Craig.

Cynthia is an amazing teacher! My daughter has only had three lessons so far, but she is learning so much and is still excited to learn more. Cynthia makes her work while not expecting more than what my child is capable of. She's very patient and makes the lessons easy to understand. She is also pretty flexible with her schedule (as much as possible) and will try to work with you if something comes up. My daughter will definitely continue her lessons with Cynthia.

I have played a number of gigs with Cynthia, and as a colleague I can say she has an incredible amount of both professionalism and proficiency in her field. Her piano and violin skills are something that you do not find much in the music education scene anymore. She is a rare find, and I would highly recommend for anyone looking for a dedicated and talented teacher to go with Cynthia.
