Laura was wonderful with my 5 year old girl, she was patient, energetic and her love for music showed through! My daughter has been very motivated to practice her songs to show "Ms Laura" next week. We look forward to working much more with Laura.
J D.
Amazing! Talented vocalist and pianist that communicates very well. Has great advice and wonderful personality. Great with kids.
Rafael Marinho
I met Laura at Harvard University when we were both doing our MFA degrees in acting. Since our program was not a Musical Theater one and I was not a singer, I started to take private lessons with her to compliment some of the training in singing we were getting there.

Laura is a fantastic singer and actor. She has an incredible ear as well as great knowledge and experience of what makes a singing performance pop. All this makes her an outstanding coach.

Even now after graduation, I am still training with her. Our focus now is on continuing the development of my singing voice. My goal is to reach a level where I have the skill and confidence to audition professionally for musicals, and I know I am in great hands.

Have you ever hoped to learn piano but didn't know where to start? Whether you (or your child) want to learn classical, jazz, pop, gospel or rock, I have experience performing and teaching many different styles of keyboard and piano. I've taught piano for about 8 years to ages ranging from 4 to over 60! It's never too late to start.

I have a master's degree from UT in jazz piano and a bachelor's in classical piano from James Madison University. I've played in a wide variety of bands and ensembles, ranging from pop cover bands to reggae groups, jazz trios and classical ensembles. In addition, I have more than eight years of experience teaching piano to students of all ages, young to old. Whatever style you're hoping to pick, I can help you learn and understand the music you play so that you can really connect with the music.

I focus my lessons towards what the student wants to accomplish. If you want to learn a song, I will find the music for you or transcribe it from the ...

"My two children have been taking lessons with Dan for the past few months. He is excellent!! He is very engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about music. This helps keep my kids motivated. He as been very flexible with our crazy schedule and the online flexibility is fantastic. My kids are progressing well and learning things they never covered in their previous in person lessons. Without Take Lessons, my kids would probably not be in piano at this time. Thanks!!"

"I met Lori at a recent voice competition where she was the designated pianist for my division. She rehearsed patiently, returned texts promptly, and kept a steady, cheerful attitude through two days surrounded by stressed-out singers. As for her playing, she performed challenging repertoire with grace and disciplined understatement that made it clear she was there to help us shine. It's hard for me to overstate just how good an accompanist she is."

"Stephanie is great! Also she said she is more of a voice coach, she is also a piano teacher. Stephanie is amazingly patient with my teen, can joke with her and get her to learn at the same time. Kristen reported to her mother than she is learning and at a rapid pace. It warms my heart to see Kristen still has interest in learning the piano and is trying. We have had a few piano teachers and Stephanie is really connecting with my daughter. She is also punctual, kind and upbeat. I highly recommend Stephanie."
