About Manda
As a graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory and Boston University Metropolitan College, Manda has obtained a diverse education in performance and performing arts management. As a clarinetist, Manda has performed in Illinois, Alabama, Ohio, and Massachusettes as a soloist, chamber musician, and in large ensembles. Her performances have been well received for their diverse programming and superior musicianship and technique.

Manda began teaching clarinet and piano in 2008 while she was still in high school. She began with beginning and intermediate musicians and quickly received the op
portunity to coach advanced players at one of Illinois' top high school band programs. While studying in Ohio, she began teaching clarinet and piano at the Joyful Noise Neighborhood Music School. There she continued to have one of the largest studio classes of both instruments for two years. Currently, Manda continues teaching in Boston, MA through Takelessons and Musika as well as through her own personal network.

Outside of her performances and teaching, Manda has held positions as a fundraiser and administrator at the Verb Ballet company in Ohio, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute in Massachusettes, the Brooke Charter Schools in Massachusettes, as well as the New England Historic Genealogical Society. Using her skills learned in these positions, as well as from working with mentor Dr. David Cutler, Manda uses an entrepreneurial and logistical mind set when running Manda's Music. You will be met with a professional atmosphere and efficently run lessons and administration.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to have their at-home-work as well as practice techniques written out in a journal for their reference every week. We will begin working slowly so the student and I feel comfortable with each other, as well as with the instrument. Each student is different, so there is no timeline that is set to work from. We work at a pace that is comfortable yet continuously challenging for the student. Over all, Manda works to acheive her goal for students to gain an appreciation for music, and look forward to coming to lessons each week.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The lesson spaces include stands, pianos, and chairs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide pens, pencils, metronome, tuner, and small repair equipment. I expect students to bring their instrument (for clarinet only), assigned music, assignment journal, and specified instrument equipment (i.e. reeds, swab, cork grease, etc).

*** Specialties ***
Classical music, popular music, and beginning jazz.

Manda meets me where I am, without judgement, and provides the feedback I need to get to where I want to go. She is flexible and incredibly responsive.

About Daniel
I love to sing, and I love to teach. Private lessons are a great place for both. Whether you're already passionate about music, or just dipping your feet in the water, I can personalize lessons to meet your needs. For me, seeing a student grow as a musician is a reward in itself. But the biggest rewards should be yours: a stronger voice, a deeper understanding of music, a whole body involved in making music, an enjoyable effort, and a growing independence to handle musical and technical difficulties over time.

My background:
I am an experienced tenor vocalist, with over 11 years of pri
vate vocal study, a BA in music from Williams College, and further study in vocal pedagogy (how to teach voice) with a Longy professor. I sing currently with the Cantata Singers, Labyrinth Choir, Stämbandet, MetroWest Choral Artists, Terpsichore, . I have taught voice on faculty at Camp Encore/Coda, music composition with Classroom Cantatas, and private voice lessons out of my home studio, currently in Somerville. I've also taught for 2 after school programs and 3 summer camps. I've studied piano, both classical and jazz, for a total of 15 years. I have studied a variety of musical topics at college, from theory and composition to singing and conducting, to music technology, recording and engineering. I've performed and directed in diverse styles ranging from early music to broadway musicals, jazz to classic rock, American to Swedish.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is simultaneously the most natural, intuitive instrument we know, and among the most complex. Every person's voice is unique, so lessons are not about fitting your voice to some imagined ideal. Rather, lessons are an opportunity to learn how to utilize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, while maintaining your own unique sound.

You'll learn how to:
- Use your breath effectively to support your voice.
- Reduce tension, to keep your voice healthy and help your voice last longer.
- Make more sound with less muscle work, through resonance.
- Involve your whole body, to produce a fuller sound.
- Make good artistic choices, which reflect your own unique perspective.
...and much more, according to your goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room with full weighted keyboard and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can reliably reach students 5 miles away, traveling by bike or public transit depending on the student's location.

I prefer students to have a piano or keyboard, though we can work without one if necessary. My keyboard is too bulky to be carried around for each lesson. If a keyboard is not available, we can work without one, and I will bring a tuning fork for starting pitches.

*** Specialties ***
I sing in a variety of styles, including classical, broadway, and jazz, both sacred and secular, from around the world. I have extensive knowledge of music theory, and 15 years experience as a pianist. Although I do not currently teach piano, my ability to accompany vocalists during lessons is very helpful for students.

About Patrick
I am a student at UMass Lowell, pursuing my bachelor's of music degree with a concentration in sound recording technology. I got started with music in 2002 when I first picked up the saxophone, and have been teaching privately on and off since I graduated high school in 2012. I also teach the Salem (MA) High School marching band and percussion ensemble. I tailor my teaching to whatever works for individual students, and make sure we work together on our goals, and what we want to accomplish for the lesson, and for the upcoming weeks/months.

About Dominic
Hello, I am 25 years old from Derry NH. I have been playing drums for many years, but I have been a serious, practicing drummer, since December 2014. I have recently taken up piano in September 2015. I spend an average of 4-6 hours everyday practicing between the two instruments. Usually two hours each. Occasionally much more. I am very knowledged in the craft of practicing and love to share my knowledge of drums, drumming, piano and music in general. I am currently enrolled at northern Essex community college (necc) as a music performance major with plans of transferring to New England Conser
vatory (NEC) in Boston or Southern University of New York, (suny Purchase). I have taken lessons from many teachers to learn as much as I can. Music is my passion, and sharing that with others brings me great joy.

Dominic was always professional, on time and easy to communicate with. My 16 year old daughter found him easy to work with and learned a great deal in a short time. He was also very accommodating when she had to reschedule due to her busy schedule. Definitely a great teacher that we highly recommend!!

Dom has been such an amazing music instructor! My whole life I've never thought I'd be able to learn an instrument or music in general, but he has helped me so much with it! Dom is very welcoming and friendly which eases away any stress I might have from trying to learn something new. If it weren't for him and his upbeat attitude I wouldn't have the motivation I do now. He makes it easy to understand with his years of experience and is very supportive and understanding if you're having a hard time. If you don't have Dom as your instructor, you will definitely regret it!

About Brandon
Hi! Thanks for checking out my TakeLessons profile. In the past 20 years of teaching, I've taught hundreds of students how to play the guitar, and I'm proud of every single one of them! Some have gone on to become teachers themselves, some have gone on to become successful performers, and all have developed a wonderful hobby to last a lifetime! Thanks to some of the wonderful teachers that I had the privilege of studying under; both as a young high school student, then later at the college level at Berklee and Umass, I've developed a broad range of influences to enhance my own music creativit
y, as well as to relate to the needs of students of all different backgrounds. I'm equally as experienced working with children, teens, and adults of all levels. I do have some experience working with people with learning disabilities such as adhd and Aspergers. I look forward to the opportunity to help you or your child learn the guitar, and answer all of your questions!

My son starting taking lessons from Brandon when he was 9 years old and continues to this day at age 14. Brandon keeps him thoroughly engaged and focused and easily tailors his lesson to his style of learning. He plays to his interests and teaches him songs from his favorite bands. He loves his rock camp in the summer where he puts together a band of musicians for the week. His passion for teaching is evident and his connection has been invaluable to my son's growth and confidence in music. I would highly recommend Brandon.

I have been taking lessons for about 4 1/2 years with Brandon and it could not have been a greater experience for me. I started at the age of 41 without ever playing guitar before. I now know how to play several songs and am able to do some singing also. I have always loved listening to music and to now be able to play songs, and to do it well, is all because of him. He is able to get the most out of his students with his teaching and making it a lot of fun.
