I am a classically trained violinist and violist passionate about helping my violin and viola students develop a love for music and for their instrument by way of a solid technical foundation and efficient practicing skills. Though I am most familiar with the Essential Elements and Suzuki lesson books, I am willing to use a different method book should you have one available. I welcome students with special needs, and am thoroughly versed in the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic violin and viola repertoire.

Helen is very patient and knowledgeable. She pays attention to details (which I love) because then I won't develop bad habits that I will have a hard time correcting later.

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.

We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

I have taught students of all ages - 4yrs to 75yrs in private & group voice lessons for years. I studied under Lisa Kelly (formerly of Celtic Woman) & with Anuna (an Ireland-based singing group, & the original Riverdance choir). I worked with the Lisa Kelly Voice Academy in Peachtree City for 1.5yrs and managed the satellite studio in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL for 1 year.
My focus is on building confidence in the individual singer and the mechanics of singing - breathing and posture and placement of the voice in different genres of music. The mechanics of the voice remain the same, but different styles require different control. Let's work on it together!

I have been playing clarinet for twelve years and have taught students of all ages and levels. In my lessons we will work on basic fundamental techniques (breathing, technique, etc) while also learning pieces that you can bring home and play for your family. I believe playing the clarinet is something that gives people the ability to increase their creativity level, confidence, and individual expression which is important to our daily lives. I want my students to be able to grow as individuals and learn to have fun with music through playing the clarinet!

Hi there. I'm Andrew. I have been teaching for about 10 years now and it has become one of the things I truly love to do. When I am not writing, reading, gigging, touring, or recording, I love to teach people the things that have made my life so colorful.

With a little push in the right direction, you can become an active participant in the things you love. No more watching from the sidelines. Become the musician, writer, speaker, reader that you have always wanted to be. It's never too late! Trying something new or asking for help can be intimidating, but I am happy to show you that the rewards far exceed the costs. Trust me, I speak from experience. I've taught personalized lessons for nearly 10 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played everything from small dive bars to music festivals with crowds of thousands and been on tour and lived the whole life more ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stop

Emily's background in musical theater is perfect for teaching our 10-year-old daughter! We signed her up for jazz to help her with choreography. We love that Emily teaches routines with Broadway music. She has also been very responsive by email, and Emily tailored our lessons to best fit our daughter.

Emily is a wonderful yoga teacher and I look forward to every class! She is motivating, kind, patient and fun!

We did not have the best experience with Emily and Take Lessons. When first inquiring about acting lessons for my daughter as a Christmas present, I was told by Emily I could purchase single acting lessons. I found out this was not the case. Because of the confusion, they allowed me to purchase just 2 to start with. The first lesson was fine. The second lesson, we got a couple reminder emails with a link to join the lesson, which is great, however after being signed in 10 minutes early and then it got to be 15 mins after the lesson was supposed to start and it hasn't, I emailed Emily and I was told I wasn't supposed to click on the link in the reminder email. I was supposed to join a Google meet, which I never received an invite for. The lesson was canceled, so we wouldn't get charged per Emily, however, our credit card was charged a fee that same day. The lesson was rescheduled as it was already paid for. At the beginning of the lesson I mentioned I would like to purchase more lessons for my daughter and inquired about lesson times outside of school hours. She said she would check her availability and get back to me. The next day all I got was an email saying good luck to you, I am not able to find a time for your daughter. Not accommodating at all.

"Rebecca is an amazing piano teach

Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high.

Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons.

The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too.

Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her."

I am proud to say that not only is my son a remarkable guitar player due to Williams teaching, he is a better young man. William has been such a positive influence and has become a dear family friend. He teaches guitar and respect and opened our family up to the wonderful world of music in the Phoenix area.
