Valerie B. Wilmington, DE

About Valerie

Hi there! My name is Valerie. I'm a certified music teacher that loves to see a person grow in their love and ability for music. With 17 years of teaching privately, experience teaching publicly in elementary school music classrooms, enjoying several years as a Kindermusik (preschool music) teacher, and a school year teaching with VSA arts of Delaware (teaching music to those with disabilities), I find it thrilling to see a person of any age & background grow and blossom in their passion for music! Though I enjoy and have experience at teaching all ages from children to adults, I specialize in CHILDREN'S MUSIC EDUCATION (ages 5-12). I would describe myself as an elementary school music teacher that teaches privately. ;) My studio is filled with many smiles, stickers for every ...

We chose Valerie because of her experience with kids. She made my daughter feel at ease immediately, connecting with her through humor, easy-to-understand communication and praise. In just three lessons, I can already see the difference in my daughter's voice. We are happy to have found Valerie!

Valerie is excellent with Samantha. She tries to keep Sam on track during lessons and makes them fun for Sammy. Valerie did a spectacular job in a couple weeks prepairing Samantha for an audition to Cab Callaway. Samatha went into and performed very well at the audition, THANKS VALERIE!!! Valerie has been excellent with both her vocal and piano teachings and we would highly recommend Valerie.

Karen S. Wilmington, DE

About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. I have studied piano with Gisa Adler at New School of Music in Philadelphia, PA. I taught public school in the Conestoga Valley School District in Lancaster County, PA and I have taught private piano for over ten years. I love music and I love teaching - seeing my students progress and reach their goals. I believe music should be a pleasant experience and a demanding and ill - spirited teacher can ruin a student. I am NOT one of these. You will find me patient and supportive. *** Lesson Details *** To be an accomplished pianist you must learn all the basics well. These include music symbology which enables you to read music so you can translate it into the sound on the piano. In order to ...

Alexis explains technique in a way that is at once immediately understandable and easy to implement. I've only had a few lessons with her and I'm already noticing a huge improvement. I would highly recommend her as a voice teacher to anyone at any level.

Alexis has been a wonderful private vocal instructor for my son who is currently a middle school student. She is professional, versatile, helpful, flexible and extremely encouraging as a teacher and mentor. Alexis believes that her students need a solid musical foundation; she is willing to spend time teaching the basics in order to assure her students know how to read music. She has been able to help my son grasp and learn music theory concepts that were sometime challenging in his music theory class at school. Alexis has also worked diligently with my son on musical theatre audition preparation which prepared him and ultimately earned him lead roles in a few musical theatre productions. Alexis is very versatile and is able to teach many types of musical and vocal styles from classical, to Broadway – musical theatre and to popular music, etc. She worked with my son and helped him gain confidence to participate as a vocal soloist for his school’s talent show. I also love the fact that Alexis can see the growth in her student’s after they have worked hard in their private lessons; she offers them advice and encouragement and often recommends new opportunities for the student to try such as auditioning for All State Choirs. Alexis is also very flexible and will work with you in instances where you need to change, reschedule or cancel your vocal lessons. This flexibility is greatly needed and appreciated as a busy parent who may have to change the schedule due to personal conflicts or work commitment. But, the best endorsement that I can give for Alexis is that my son trust, believes in and likes Alexis as a teacher and as a person and as a parent, I don’t think you can ask for too much more!

I began violin lessons at age five, and was requested by the youth conductor to join the Palm Beach Youth Symphony a year later.

My nine year old daughter enjoys her lessons with Miss Reynolds. She said today, "The violin lesson is so fun." The Skype method through Take Lessons makes violin possible again-flexible, affordable and available. Miss Reynolds know how to guide us (example if the violin goes out of tune) and teach my daughter just at her level and keep her challenged just right. Perfect!

I had my reservations of having my 9 yo daughter learn violin online, but the experience has been wonderful. Elicia is very knowledgeable, patient and encouraging. She is able to get across what is needed with ease. My daughter is excited to have her lessons and also practice daily.

David F. Wilmington, DE

About David

About Me: I am an aspiring math teacher currently earning my masters degree in secondary education from Wilmington University. I have passed the Praxis series exams and earned the ETS' recognition of excellence. I come from an eclectic background; in college I studied aviation (where I learned to fly airplanes), music (especially Caribbean), and philosophy. I am still an amateur performing musician, but I am truly an academician at heart. Tutoring Style: The most important thing to me when teaching is sharing my excited interest in the material with my students in a contagious way. I don't have to fake having fun; math, writing, grammar, and philosophy genuinely are fun for me, and I will work hard to help my students have fun as well. Tutoring works better the more ...

I just finished my junior year in the IB Program at Mount Pleasant High School. For the past year and a half I worked one on one with David. Before I started going to David, I was very unconfident with my ability to do math and struggled a lot. After just a few sessions with him, he was able to give me the confidence in myself to not get down on myself. More than just helping me with self-confidence issues, he was able to teach me methods of problem solving that I was able to understand better. David prepared me for every test that I took and made sure that we reviewed the tests after I got them back. I'm extremely thankful for David and all of the help that he gave me and strongly recommend anyone that needs a little help in math to see him!
