This was my first time using takelessons and I am impressed. Gleb is very knowledgeable, punctual, dedicated and a pleasure to work with. My 14yr is making improvements every week and it is very noticeable. Looking forward to continue working with him.
Evelina
My child likes the class. She learned a lot of new important details about saxophone and feels happy. The instructor was very patient and made the learning go smoothly. She is already talking about her next class: it’s a great sign that initial class was a success. Thank you Gleb!

Private Music Theory Teacher

I have studied music theory at the college level and have been writing and composing for over a decade, both alone and in a number of successful bands. I believe in theory as a creative tool rather than simply as an intellectual exercise, and I put strong emphasis on putting knowledge to use.

Ben has character attributes one would like to find in a teacher, knowledge, patience and presence! Looking forward to our next lesson. Thanks Ben!
Aena
Fantastic, patient and kind ukelele instructor. I recommend Ben without reservation.
Thanks Ben!
Kamal
Ben has been instructing my 2 kids (now aged 11 and 9) in-home for at least 5 years. We started off with piano for the first few years but then switched to a combination of piano and acoustic guitar (half a session dedicated to each instrument).

He is patient, kind, and highly knowledgeable. I clearly see the upward trajectory in my kids' musical capabilities. One of my kids can be difficult to deal with, especially when he is tired, but Ben would mold his approach to the lesson on the spot to keep my kid engaged (e.g., instead of continuing the lesson on the actual piano, he'd switch to a fun music-oriented game).

Music Theory can seem complicated. But let's take the stress out of it and learn how the notes fit together and how to build on that knowledge. I endeavor to make it much more accessible and even a little fun!

Would not recommend. Has some knowledge but a really bad character and will put you down as a person. If you aren’t a favorite, you’re ranked least important and more likely to be put down. A really bad experience and person.
JJ
Miriam is an excellent musician, mentor, and person! She knows her craft extremely well and knows how to coach someone by offering critical feedback and encouragement. Miriam is the kindest and most compassionate person that you will ever meet. Taking vocal lessons with Miriam will make you a better singer and a better person. Thanks, Miriam!
Ethan
Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!

Spiros has been an ideal teacher for me, he has a wealth of experience to draw from and has a natural nack for teaching (Im an absolute beginner).
His teaching method gets you playing fast and doesn't skimp on theory and musicality - he doesn't simply have you learn tabs and songs, this was a huge plus for me. Highly recommend him.
Lynda Horvat
Excellent first lesson. Via Skype we covered common phrases, beginning grammar and vocabulary. Looking forward to my next lesson.

"Although, I've only worked with her for about 3 months, I have learned so much musically. Ms. Christine is very professional in her work. She's very passionate about her craft and loves teaching. She will go out of her way to check on my progress musically and see how I'm doing throughout the work week.

I'm very grateful for her dedication to the art of music. Anyone who is looking for a caring instructor; look no further than Ms. Christine."

Not only that but he makes sure you have fun! Whenever he’s teaching I can’t help but have fun. He’s always cracking jokes and making you feel comfortable. I love music lessons with him. I’m so glad he’s a teacher and I hope he helps many more kids like me to become better musicians."

"I took guitar lessons from Blake for about 5 and a half years. He is a fantastic instructor. Immensely talented, knowledgeable, proficient and practicing his craft actively, and a great teacher and communicator. Most teachers will just teach you how to play riffs, licks, and elements of technique and maybe how to play songs all the way through. What I took away from Blake's lessons the most was the THEORY behind music and how it applied to guitar playing. That knowledge has proven itself invaluable over time - music is a language and Blake will teach you how to speak it fluently and in many dialects! I have high praise for him!"
