Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Private Music Recording Teacher

Whether you are a beginner inspired to record your own music for the first time, or you've been recording for years but just can't seem to make further progress on your own...I've got you covered!

I can help you to grow in your understanding of the recording process. For instance...what are the different types of microphones and how should they be used? How should different instruments be recorded? How do DAW's (Digital Audio Workstations) work? What is the best way to use plugins for EQ, compression, reverb, and the like? How to mix a song? These kinds of issues and much more will be covered in our music recording lessons.

I have been both recording music and teaching for over 20 years. I care deeply about helping students reach their goals on the instrument, and I never cease to be amazed at the beauty and creativity involved in making music.

My background in a nutshell: I have a degree in music with a focus on percussion and composition from a major university, I've studied ...

About Jesse

As an intermediate drummer, Jesse's lessons were a perfect fit for me! I've been with him for about two years now. He's an experienced and skilled musician, but more importantly he's patient, motivating, and overall just a great teacher. I always feel like I'm getting my money's worth when going to his lessons. My skill level and enjoyment level of drumming have dramatically increased since beginning studying with him. I have no plans to quit taking lessons with Jesse anytime soon!
Thorson
Jesse is a great drums instructor and musical mentor. He has a great set-up for teaching drums online, and a cozy home studio in Morningside Heights if you prefer in person instruction. His hourly rate is the best deal you'll find on Manhattan. I previously paid $150-200 per hour for college instruction, and Jesse's teaching is as good or better than any college instructors. He is clear, friendly, patient, and able to cater instruction to both the ability and aspirations of his students.
Peter
Jesse is a true professional, a technician, and an artist. And he yearns to see his students level up. I love his taste in music! I wish I could receive his tutelage more often.

Mark is an American composer, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and music producer.

I started teaching private music lessons my senior year of high school, in 2006. Since then I've taught over 100 different students of all ages from 3 years old to 78 years old. While still living in Ohio, I was the one and only official guitar teacher for Guitar Center Youngstown through the duration of 2008-2009. In late 2009, after moving to Los Angeles, I continued to teach privately and with several music schools all around the city. I currently live in the Sherman Oaks neighborhood of LA with my wife and two little kids.

Online Music Recording Teacher

After years of performing in the studio and on stage it was only natural that she start musically directing and producing. With production comes recording after recording. Francesca now runs ProTools and Login in her studio daily and will show you the quick path towards recording your demo. Francesca has been professionally recording since 2000.

About Francesca

Alumnae of CSULAs music department with an emphasis in classical voice and guitar, Francesca's skills cover a vast array of information. With a background and formal education in opera and "the classics", Francesca is equally comfortable on stage with a chamber orchestra as she is with a rock band.

Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!
Andrea D.
I've been working with Francesca for a few months now, and I feel I've grown so much. Prior to this I've sparsely attempted to play instruments, but she has taken her knowledge and passion and been able to pass that on to me while constantly reminding me that one day I will be good. And I believe it! I've come a long way to establish a regular practice routine, still working on it with her, and I have high expectations for the future. I recommend her to my own people and I recommend her to you.

"This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too."

"I really enjoy learning from Russ. He is good at relating things back to a way I can understand and improve. He is so versatile in his music knowledge that I can litterally throw anything his way that I'm curious about and he points me in the right direction. I've taken guitar, bass, vocal, and even production lessons from Russ. By far the most value I have ever got from an instructor. At first I was a little hesitant because of the higher price than others, but when you start noticing that you are learning stuff other teachers had no idea about, it makes sense to pay a little more for the quality you get out of his lessons. Thanks Russ for all the lessons over the last few years! Wouldn't be where I am today without ya!"
