Ashlie has been teaching my twin girls the violin for over a year. She is very kind and patient and has a way of getting through to my children. Ashlie is no pushover which I really like since my girls will look for ways to waste time but the lessons are always well controlled. The girls have learned so much from her and I hope to continue with Ashlie for as long as we can!

A very good instructor, being that she had to contend with an adult learner that also did not read music, she was very understanding. She works her teachings around you not the other way around, so you can move at your own pace and ability and not feel like you are not improving. So I recommend her to any of you who are older, and would like to take up the Violin.

I've had many different music teachers over the years for various instruments but none of them have been as helpful and encouraging as Ashlie.
Ashlie's enthusiasm and love for music shines through every lesson. I would strongly recommend her to everyone!

Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!

Arlette is a wonderful teacher and has really clicked with my daughter. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week. She is teaching her how to read and understand the music as well as how to play the cello. Here sessions are very relaxed and fun and I am confident that my daughter will not only learn how to play the cello, but love playing the cello. I can see how she passes that passion on to the student. If you are looking for a fun, passionate and well education teacher to work with your children, she is the one.

Sincerely,

Karynn Bonner

I first began studying with Arlette when I was a young girl who knew nothing about reading music. She was an amazing teacher for me as a young girl, and continued to be as I grew up. Arlette has taught me and helped me hone my technique and musicality, from the beginning before I could hold a bow through the years and improvements.

We are lucky to have found her!!!

Around a year ago, my daughter decided she wanted to learn to play the guitar! Thanks to Google, we ran into TakeLessons.
Nicole was recommended to us. After reading about her we were quite impressed!
Right after the first lesson and to my surprise, my (very shy) daughter had a great 1st experience with Nicole.
Nicole is a professional in her field AND also in handling kids and knowing how to help them overcome their shyness. She brings out the best in my daughter and also encourages her to sing even write her own notes!
I would highly recommend Nicole. She is truly talented and the greatest teacher!!!
Christine, Lia's mom!

About Ray

Hello! My name is Ray - I'm 26 years old, born in Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. Here I was also introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer. I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for over 12 years now. I can say with pride that it is my passion, and I anticipate teaching being a very important part of the rest of my life. I enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy, and in addition to teaching am currently working as a pop music producer. *** ...

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

Classical Guitar

When I started taking lessons from Ray I was playing the electric guitar, although I had a classical guitar in my house I did not play it that often. I took my classical guitar once to class and then I started to learn how to play the classical guitar. I went from playing basic peaces of music to playing Minuet in G in a short time. From playing electric guitar about 3 or 4 years to playing classical music in about 1.5 to 2 years. Ray has helped me to increase my knowledge of music.

Audition Prep · In studio
Verified Student
I needed help getting ready for an upcoming school audition that was within a month and a half. It was a bit of an emergency since I had to learn and perform two classical songs from memory after eight years of a singing break! I searched through several profiles on here but I was instantly drawn to Tania through her words and video uploads. She seemed to be the perfect match and I was grateful for her to take on this challenge with me. When I finally met her, I was absolutely thrilled to find that she was all I had hoped her to be - and more!

Tania's voice is incredible and she is filled with so much insight about voice techniques and bodily applications. She is not afraid to challenge you to go above and beyond your goals but she is also patient, understanding, and will be there for you every step of the way. I find her to be inspirational, wise, and encouraging. In fact, I can easily say that I have learned more about how to TRULY sing from her than all the years I spent in choral programs in school. She is incredibly beautiful and beautiful to work with!

I feel blessed to have found Tania and I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a remarkable voice coach. I won’t know until March if I have been accepted into music school but I have no doubt that I've made it thanks to Tania’s help!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!

Classical Voice · In studio
It's my pleasure to recommend Tania as a voice teacher without reservation. I had the pleasure of working with her as her accompanist/vocal coach for several years while we both lived in Florida. Tania possesses a beautiful soprano voice, is quite a talented actress and is quite facile with French, German and Italian diction. She's an excellent teacher; I've had the pleasure of hearing some of her students sing. If you're looking for a voice teacher, Tania would be an outstanding choice.

I had the pleasure of working with Tania when our very large cast needed to perfect a French Canadian dialect for a play. Not only was she a consummate professional, she made the lessons really fun and easy to grasp. Tania is very dedicated to high-quality work and to making sure her students get top-notch results. I wholeheartedly recommend working with her and will hire her on my next project!
