Eric is the first coach I've worked with that has pointed out the things that are holding me back as a singer. It's always a noticeable improvement after each session!

We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!
Ashna S.
Very knowledgeable. My daughter enjoy learning from him.
Isabel Z.
So far, I have had only one lesson with Dr. M., the only singing lesson I've had in my entire 66 years of a lifetime. My only regret, is that I did not take them sooner. Dr M. is patient, an expert, and motivational. What more could you ask for when working with a teacher. He thinks he can make a singer out of me; I'll have to trust his judgement. It would be awesome, if he achieves our goal.

Online Music Theory Teacher

As a music student at Stony Brook University, I worked with some of the finest music academics in the country. I have studied music history and theory at high school, undergraduate, and masters degree levels. I can help you prepare for the AP Music Theory exam, undergraduate aural training courses, and more.

I can help with both targeted work on course materials and broad goals like music analysis/interpretation/composition (especially in the western classical genre). I can also offer music history and musicology, if desired.

Whether students are looking to learn the basic foundations of music theory, an understanding of music theory as it applies to performing on their instrument, or the ability to analyze music for scholarly works, my understanding of music theory is thorough and can be catered to all levels.

About Sarah

Sarah went from a baby banging pots to a professional musician performing in Carnegie Hall and with Grammy Award winners. She began her classical training early and is fluent in piano and string instruments. Sarah first knew she loved teaching as the first volunteer keyboard instructor at the Nevad

Online Music Theory Teacher

I took my first Music Theory course in high school and immediately fell in love with it. I never listened to music the same way again. Just as people who know the rules of a sport seem to have a deep connection when watching it, I feel people with an understanding of the rules of music enjoy it to a higher degree.
It all starts with an introduction to piano and learning how to read pitch and rhythm. Then a trip back in time to study early music and how it evolved into what we hear today.

David was exactly what I was looking for in an upright bass teacher. Knowledgeable, patient, friendly and very professional. He clearly understood where I want to be in a year's time. I would not hesitate to recommend David to any musician interested in studying the double bass. A fine teacher.
Lee K.
David provided instant feedback and is very knowledgeable.

David , arrived on time at my home for my first piano lesson in 25 years.
He was friendly and knowledgeable and soon found some things for me to work on, but he was patient with this 53

I feel confident that my piano skills will improve greatly with David’s tuition.
I eagerly look forward to my next lesson.

Mr. Willson is a fantastic instructor for music and guitar! His lessons are organized and he is great at answering all of my many questions. We learn at least one new song each session, so my repertoire is expanding a lot! I definitely recommend this teacher.

"My name is Mary Mercurio Santos, and I am the Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Coordinator for Azusa Pacific University. Adam worked under my direct supervision as a Tutor and Supplemental Instruction Leader for approximately three years while he was an undergrad at APU.
Adam's knowledge of music, and Music Theory is extensive and comprehensive, and yet he has the ability to break down these complicated theoretical concepts and make them easy to understand for even the most basic learner. I have seen him successfully tutor students at all levels of musical knowledge and experience. If you need to know ANYTHING about music, I strongly recommend you reach out to Adam for services."

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
