Inaya has gained an incredible interest in playing the piano since beginning her classes. She practices on her own now very consistently. Debra is patient with her and that goes such a long way! I am proud of Inaya and highly recommend Debra as a piano instructor.

My name is Maggie and I'm a piano teacher. I have been teaching private piano lessons for 10 years. I focus on students' fundamental skills such as finger technic, sight reading, and ear training. I also incorporate music theory during the piano lesson so students also understand why the music sounds beautiful. I teach at my home studio, and I can also drive to your place if you have a piano or keyboard. I teach Classical, Jazz, Blues, and Pop. Don't hesitate to contact me if you are looking for a piano teacher, you're welcome to join my studio!

Adelene K.
Maggie is a great teacher. My seven-year-old daughter loves her and she learns a lot from her. My daughter had a different piano teacher before. I like Maggie's upbeat way of teaching better than her old teacher. I personally believe the right attitude and energy helps motivate kids to learn. I like that she has different lesson plans and reward system. Just a little something to show my daughter that she's doing a good job.

I teach a variety of styles of piano including classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk, and pop. I always start lessons with new students by getting to know what music they love to play and listen to, and I will develop my lessons accordingly.

If you have experience with piano, I will probably start by asking you to demonstrate your skill level by playing a song you know. If you are picking up piano for the first time, the first lessons will be devoted to learning correct posture and technique, and you will begin playing your first scales and chords. We will begin to work on simple exercises to get the left and right hands playing separately. After a few lessons, you will begin to learn your first melodies and repertoire.

After a few weeks, our lessons will likely take several different, but parallel trajectories. You will learn to play the lead melodies to songs as well as play the rhythmic accompaniment. This will involve learning the scales or collections of notes that make up ...

Bill taught me everything I know about playing the guitar. He made the learning process fun. His enthusiasm about music in general is contagious. I would highly recommend Bill Rice to anyone looking to learn the guitar.

Accompaniment by Ferlyn!

My History of Accompaniment & Arrangements:
Many of my accompaniments, compositions, sound productions and songwriting techniques are used in a several performances and a few video amateur productions. I have been mostly self-taught and trained through private music lessons. Arrangements and accompaniment techniques for guitar, piano, orchestral and symphonies are readily available for learning.

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True Inner Dancer."

Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

Meets you at your dance level and you move forward from there. Excellent attitude and knowledgeable instructor. Professional and thorough.

This was my daughter's first singing lesson. Melody was very accommodating with my wife and I observing our daughter. With a musical background myself, I immediately knew that Melody had immense knowledge not only about singing, but also the theory and technique that all singers should learn.
Gianna
My daughter is now 16 years old and has been under Ms. Melody's tutelage for a year now. There are good times and bad, and I am thankful that Ms. Melody did not give up. My daughter will encounter lots of hardships throughout her life, and as a mother, I cannot do all the teachings myself. It is always good to know when you have a caring teacher whom you can trust and know what they are doing both in music and life. I like that Ms. Melody can be lenient, and firm when needed. My daughter has joined her recitals, music playdates, and couldn't be happier. I can't recommend Ms. Melody high enough.
Micala S.
My daughters, 8 and 6, took lessons as beginners from Melody for 10 months before we had to move. SHE IS AMAZING! Not only did she make the lessons fun and engaging, but they learned so much in that short time. I grew up playing piano, violin and French horn and I was very impressed with her approach/methodology and how much of herself she put into her teaching. For the last 3 months we were with Melody, the girls also took voice lessons. The highlight of our spring was watching the girls perform at the recital Melody had so painstakingly organized. It was astounding how much they had progressed musically and my husband and I were in awe at how well they performed in front of people. We were also impressed at the wide range of experience in the students Melody taught. Some had played for years and were clearly continuing to blossom under Melody's tutelage, while others were beginners like our daughters. Melody was always positive, encouraging and extremely patient (even when my six year old had clearly not practiced for a week straight or was tired and whiny). My daughters and I miss her dearly as our mentor and now our friend! We cannot recommend her highly enough.

"Our 12-year old son has been learning clarinet from Mr. Dimitry for about a year now and we highly recommend him to prospective students for his deep music knowledge, rich clarinet performance experience and above all, just being a great clarinet teacher.

In a year's time with Mr. Dimitry, our son's progress has been very impressive. After our son started lessons with Mr. Dimitry, it quickly became apparent that Mr. Dimitry is a very experienced teacher for young musicians. He engages our son effectively to keep him interested in music and clarinet while at the same time sets high expectations for him. Our son always looks forward to clarinet lessons and also is motivated to practice pieces at home.

Mr. Dimitry not only teaches sound clarinet skills, but also emphasizes the importance of playing music the right way, that is to tell stories and express feelings through music rather than to play music like a technician. Although it is difficult for a young musician to fully appreciate this concept, it does go a long way in preparing him to become a really good musician in the long run.

Mr. Dimitry is very polite, pleasant and professional. We recommend him without any reservation."
