I have 12 years of experience playing the piano. My focus is primarily classical and sacred music. I have been teaching piano since 2016 and have loved every minute of it. I have also played for many special events (weddings/funerals/church worship team). My music instructor studied under interns of Juilliard School and Curtis Institute. From energetic kindergarteners with a list of favorite songs to learn to school-age students with an interest in the arts, my music students have found the piano to be a great creative outlet.

About Abigail

In my free time, I enjoy playing in my family's music band and learning new creative skills, such as sewing, crocheting, trying new recipes in the kitchen (including gourmet cookies), and am currently studying horticulture.

My 4 year old loves his piano lessons with Abigail. Her teaching style is very tailored towards the interest of the kids. She is great with kids and i would highly recommend her for piano lessons.
Vishal Naik
Abigail is an amazing piano teacher. She was able to connect with my 6 year old son right away. She is very calm and patient while teaching. She has taught my son the basics of piano very well. My son is flourishing under her and enjoys learning.

Our 8yr old loves learning Piano with Abigail. As someone with social anxiety and learning difficulties, it has been difficult for him to pickup anything new; Abigail has been very encouraging and he looks forward to meeting Abigail for every lesson.

I have taught advanced tap for adults and teens for years, but I enjoy teaching beginners of all ages, as well! I have previously taught tap technique, history and choreography at dance studios in the Chicago area.

I studied tap for twenty years with acclaimed teachers including Lane Alexander, Becky Cooper, Phil Brooks, and Mark Yonally. I was the artistic director of Tonik Tap ensemble at Northwestern University, for which I choreographed several pieces. I specialize in choreography, advanced technique, tap history, and beginning improvisation.

My husband and I both took lessons from Darcy and she was a great teacher with fantastic curriculum and very accommodating. Very happy with her and how our dance came out.

Darcy is very professional and very easy going and willing to change course when required. She is working not only with my daughter but also keep me posted on her progress. My daughter likes her style and I have seen improvements with my daughter grades... Yes, I will certainly recommend her to anyone.

Jonathan is very patient and professional.
Michael
My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

Absolutely amazing! I was struggling with Calculus but Daniel helped me get through it. Thanks to him I now know if there is a problem I’m stuck on or need help I can confidently ask him for math help.
Erin
Helped me with Introductory Physics 1 and 2! Really helped me understand the material rather than just doing the problems for me! Great tutoring!
Angela
Daniel tutored my teenage son in Algebra and Geometry for over one year. During that time, my son's grades increased and he became more confident with Math, in general. His time with Daniel set him up for success in Algebra 2 this year (11th grade). Daniel was always on time, very polite and courteous with my son! Highly recommend his tutoring service.

I have a Master in Fine Arts and, I encourage students to learn the Spanish Language through art culture traditions. In addition, to being a Spanish instructor, I work as an art curator, gallerist, and art educator. I incorporate art and music into my classes as a way to give a well-rounded introduction into Spanish, not only in a linguistic but also in a cultural sense. I use a communicative methodology, which emphasizes interaction, so you will learn in context (asking for coffee, or talking about your family), and a student-centered approach, which is based on your personal goals.

My class includes an e-textbook (open source) and all practice material. Most of all, I hope to get to know my students and have fun in the process of teaching and learning. And yes! any question is a good question, feel free to contact me. Click the icon above under " Ask Liliana a question."

"Thank you, Vanessa Pace!

THANK YOU, VANESSA!

A year ago when I was shopping for a voice teacher, Take Lessons provided a wide selection of viable options. As a senior adult, I was feeling a need to clarify my "Call" in life, and to return to some of the personal strengths that I hope to continue using in the last 1/3 of my life. In my profile I indicted I was looking to maintain the voice that has been a part of every aspect of my life from theatre to singing, to preaching, to creating radio spots. When I mentioned that goal to Vanessa in our first meeting she countered: “We won’t just maintain it, we’ll restore it!” What a confidence booster that was!

Although my life work mostly involves speaking, I also have a love of singing—something I have participated in one way or another for the last 50 years. I wanted to overcome the “old lady” vibrato syndrome if possible and to be able to sing without concern that those within earshot would shudder.

In addition, I was looking for certain attributes in a teacher:
• A person who is at my stage of life or beyond.
• A person who is knowledgeable in both singing and speech.
• A person with a personal teaching style that is positive and encouraging.

ENTER VANESSA PACE!

Vanessa is confident and knowledgeable. In addition, she has customized my learning program to suit my current objectives, which have changed from one week to the next depending upon my professional assignments from work and my personal creative pursuits.

In this year Vanessa brought me to a point of “breaking through” inhibitions and moving beyond what I thought I’d be able to do. Her constant use of cues to put me on track with the use of my voice has been invaluable! She compared letting sound pass through the vocal cords (without strain) in the same way breath becomes music through a clarinet. Using words like “Pull up your spine—you’re two inches taller!”; and reminders to draw on the strength of (underused) larger muscles to support the efforts of diaphragm have been helpful in numerous practical matters of everyday life.

Vanessa is inspiring in that she is a life-long learner and passionate about things to the degree that she invests in them with intelligent research, attention to science, and a spiritual passion that drives her to draw out the best in her students in similar fashion.

If you are looking for a voice teacher, Vanessa will work with you where you are--and help you move toward the goal of where you are hoping to be.

I am thanking God this Thanksgiving Season for Vanessa Pace.

7 Acting Warm Ups & Games for Actors | Take Lessons

Being in the entertainment industry is not much different from being in the sports world. In addition to some natural talent and interest, a huge overlap with both industries is the time spent honing your craft.  Of course regular practice is a necessary evil, but come race or audition day, our minds and bodies still need to be prepared for what’s about to happen.

How Do Actors Cry?  

Actors often draw their audience in through strong and seemingly authentic emotions.  Perhaps you watched a particularly emotional scene in a movie or play and wondered to yourself whether or not the emotion the actor was showing was truthful.  Perhaps they were crying and you could see the tears falling.  Are those real tears?  The answer is, probably, yes. Crying on command is tricky business and like everything else, takes preparation and practice. However, there are some tips and tri …
