Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!

My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.

Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!

Just had my first lesson with Michelle and I am delighted to have her as a teacher. She is knowledgeable and organized.

I appreciate her warm personalty and patience since I am coming back to the trumpet after a long hiatus I am looking forward to the next lesson!

It went greater than I expected. Very very impressed - explanations very clear, easy to understand - some tricks to improve a few things - couldn’t wait until I could practice those tips. Practiced another 25-30 minutes after my lesson. I’m already looking forward to my next lesson in a week - she made me feel at ease very quickly.

She is a great instructor! Very patient, especially when there are weeks where I don't get to practice very much because of work. She is understanding and always looks for the progress.

My experience ranges from teaching children and adults of all backgrounds. I founded Harp4all Music Conservatory and have regular harp ensemble practices and recitals. I teach from several method books including Harp Olympics and Fun From the First. My teachers include Susan McDonald, Elizabeth Richter, Ellie Choate.

I have taught bass for 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/bass player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

"Never imagined how great of an experience it would be!

I started playing piano in January and took about 10 lessons in an instructors home. For convenience, I looked into in home lessons and found TakeLessons.com, which led me to Jason. While I was still learning the basics, Jason immediately challenged me beyond what I thought I was going to be capable of and just when I would think I am not getting this, he would change it up and give me exactly the lesson I needed! While it is an entirely different teaching method than what I was use to, I have found that my skill level has significantly improved! I am still a beginner, but with Jason's leadership, I know I will continue to grow! He provides variety, has amazing technical equipment/software for delivering the lessons, is very patient, yet pushy in a good way, provides lots of materials to practice on your own, and always leaves you feeling good about your desire to play and enjoy music, no matter what your skill level is. And he is very prompt and organized and flexible. All around he is a true professional that I would recommend to anyone! I should also note that while his style of music may seem to be an extreme mismatch from yours, (I love country, classical, and soft rock), he has such a love and appreciation of music, that he makes it feel as if he wrote the songs that I want to learn to play as he is teaching them to me!"

"Shelley is by far the best voice teacher I have ever had. Within the short duration of time that I have worked with her, I have noticed that my voice has significantly changed (it feels and sounds better) after using her techniques. She knows what she’s talking about and offers substantial and specific criticism. She individualizes every student, in that she chooses repertoire that benefits a particular voice instead of assuming that every student has the same voice and strengths/weaknesses. This is a very important skill for a voice teacher to have. Shelley is also very good at time management within a lesson. Most importantly, she makes the experience fun! I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone who is looking for a voice teacher! Thank you Shelley!"

"My daughter has taken lessons with at least 5 other voice teachers over the past 4 years, and Daniel is by far the best fit. He is encouraging and knowledgeable. The difference between a song we think she has down, and the song after she works on it with Daniel is just amazing. She wants to sing and play bass professionally, so we tap into Daniel's expertise about the music industry and bring songs for auditions, solos, performances, etc. to him with no advance warning and he teaches her how to approach them. He consciously expands her range on the low side as well as high side. Most importantly, he is very professional, kind and supportive about life, not just in music. And, of course, there is his amazing voice that can shake our house if we ask him to sing something!"

How to Read Sheet Music: Violin Notes for Beginners | TakeLessons

The most valuable skill you can develop as a musician is learning to read music. While it’s possible to learn to play “by ear,” reading music opens up the world to you as an artist! There are many different ways to write music. Guitarists often read off of charts outlining the chord progressions for the song. Drummers have a rhythm chart showing them what to play. As a violinist, however, you'll most likely be reading off of violin sheet music. Standard sheet music is filled with direc …
