About Patricia

As a child I watched from the doorway as my older sister took her piano lessons. From that experience I taught myself to play the piano. My formal training came in college where I received my BA in Applied Music in piano and voice. I studied classical music and opera from a visiting professor from Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore MD. I graduated with honors and gave my Town Hall performance in the Spring of my Senior year. I had a passionate desire to be involved in music, to hear it and to perform it. I spent several years singing with the San Diego Opera Company, performing lead roles in Musical Theater and soloing in concerts from Monterrey to San Diego, CA. While still a student in college, I taught piano to children from the local community, so I have accumulated decades of teaching experience. Nothing brings me greater pleasure than

to see individuals "blossom" into their creative selves. Whether it is for a student's own enjoyment, audition preparation, recital performance or ongoing piano or voice development, I am committed to engaging you in an experience of learning and fun. It may be the biggest thrill of your lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to have fun. For me, learning is a great source of fun. My goal is to make the process of your learning music fun while effective. I do have high standards for participation. I do not ask anything of you that I haven't done myself. I know, from many years of experience in performing and teaching, what it takes to make progress in a learning curve, Are you excited? Are you dedicated? Are you willing to jump in and get busy? I will give you the foundation of theory and technique to support your performance. I will expand your understanding and appreciation for music in its many styles and formats. No every other week or schedule as you go lessons, please. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room - Steinway piano, cathedral ceilings ... good acoustics.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Must have piano or quality keyboard. I definitely prefer piano.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained classically in both piano and voice, but spent many years in musical theater and singing in supper clubs, as well. I am capable of teaching most styles of piano and voice except rock and rap.

i recently came out of an audition and I sang my musical pieces better than I've ever done them before! The auditioner sat me down at the end and said he loves my voice. He said, based on how much he liked my pieces and how well I did that he would like to extend an early invitation for callbacks for the program! I really have Patricia to thank for that. She has helped me improve my voice by leaps and bounds in the time that i have been working with her and its amazing to get such immediate and rewarding results. I CAN NOT THANK PATRICIA ENOUGH! SHE COULD NOT HAVE PREPARED ME ANY BETTER AND IM SO GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO WORK WITH HER!!

About Leanna

Leanna is available for at-home and online lessons and loves to teach students of all ages. She has been playing the flute for 16 years and is eager to share her knowledge and expertise of the instrument! Her passion and enthusiasm for teaching comes through in each lesson. She likes to tailor each lesson to the student's various interests in music.

Leanna grew up in a learning environment, as both her parents are teachers. Her mother teaches music in her hometown, so Leanna had the fortune of observing and listening to countless private lessons in her home. She has gained experience teaching group and private lessons of her own for the past 6 years. If you do not see an available time on her schedule that works for you, please feel free to contact her with the time that you prefer!

Leanna received her Master's Degree in Flute Perfo

I highly recommend Sarah. She has excellent skills for any teacher - she's encouraging, knowledgeable and patient. I'm an adult who played piano years ago and always wanted to play the flute but I was frustrated, squeaky, out of breath, and out of tune. With a few weeks of lessons I'm further along than I was trying to teach myself over years.
I had years of serious music study with critical music teachers who made me embarrassed about mistakes and dread my lessons. With Sarah, the learning is fun and I now look forward to every lesson.

Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

About Shauna

Shauna is a professional director, acting and voice teacher, playwright and the artistic director of Voice Theatre, a company she founded in Paris, in 1988. Since then she has have directed over forty plays in eight countries from Aberbeen, Scotland to San Antonio, Texas to London, England to Paris, France.

(New offer: call the Take Lessons Sales Team to book one lesson so you can get an idea of how we might work together).

I have taught acting and acting in many universities and professional theatre training programs on both sides of the Atlantic. I am currently a mentor for the New York Foundation for the Arts. I have led hundreds of workshops and individual classes where singers and actors have shed non-productive habits and built healthy expressive acting instruments and voices. I have taught actors from the Royal Shakespea

re Company to jazz artists to Broadway singers and actors.

I am a graduate of Carnegie-Mellon and College at Purchase where I earned a BFA in acting. My post grad work was at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in Bristol, UK. I am published by Drama Books, "Voice and Speech Warm-up", University of Nebraska, "Pushing Through", Arts Navigator-London, "Taking Legacy to Germany" and featured in Cune Press, "Stage Warriors". This Spring I have been commissioned by Texas Tech University to write a new play.

My students experience improvements and change most weeks. You'll become the master of specific exercises that will unlock tension blocks in each part of your body and voice. You'll develop strength, expressiveness and confidence and as a result you'll have a technique that will solve challenges in rehearsal and performance.
You will learn how to solve rehearsal problems and challenges on your own.

I teach students of all ages to "own" their own instruments as constantly developing artists whether it is acting or speaking or singing. I work out of my studio in the East Village in NYC, or in my home in Upsate, NY and online. I teach many different styles.

Here are a few of the schools I have taught voice and acting: The Stella Adler Studio of Acting, New York University Tisch School of the Arts, T. Schreiber Studio and the New Actor's Workshop. In England at: The Mountview Theatre Conservatory, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, Queen Margaret College and Middlesex University – all members of the Professional Theatre Training Programme of Great Britain. I have been a guest artist at Bowdoin College, Williams College and Harden-Simmons College.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better artist!

It's an amazing feeling when you find someone who is a master at the craft and can teach it too!

Shauna's previous extensive theatre training and instruction is UNDENIABLE. Because of this, she brings much more to the table than the average acting coach.

She made me realize there's SO much more than just breaking down a scene and creating a character. She made me think about where the character is going physically as well as emotionally, and why. I continue to grow and improve with each lesson with her. I'm so lucky to have found Shauna, and strongly recommend her to all actors.

Shauna is an amazing teacher! With her tools and teaching techniques she guides you to the place where your voice is physically mentally and emotionally connected,able to work and produce results that every artist is seeking to accomplish-reaching the audience. She. Is kind, compassionate and makes you work hard all at the same time to get you to the place you need to be as an artist. Thank you Shauna! ♥️

Gabriella
Shauna is an absolutely incredible voice/acting teacher. She took the time to meet me where I was and encouraged me to be confident in the skills I already possessed. As a dancer, it is often scary to use your voice because it isn’t something we often exercise. Shauna helped me gain incredible knowledge in a new instrument. I was preparing for an important audition and with the tools she gave me I was able to have incredible success on a nearly impossible time constraint! I highly recommend Shauna for all levels :)

About Nicholas

Hi! My name is Nick and I have been teaching guitar, piano, and songwriting lessons for 2 years both privately and also as part of Oaklawn Music Studio in Rhode Island, and St. Maria Goretti School in Long Beach, CA. I have played the guitar for 11 years, been singing for 7, played piano and ukulele for 4, and producing/mixing/audio-engineering for 2. I moved from my home state of Rhode Island to Los Angeles in 2016 and attended the Los Angeles College of Music in Pasadena, CA to earn a Certificate in Music Composition (Songwriting) and have written over 150 songs myself. I have played several live shows around Los Angeles, Rhode Island, and Montana at farmers markets, art shows, coffee shops (among other humble venues), and have served as a session instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and engineer for numerous studio sessions around Lo

s Angeles.

Currently, I reside in the small town of West Yellowstone, Montana and work as the resident musician for a company called Under Canvas. I feel that it is my time to give back to the community and teach others all that I have learned, an experience I would love to share with you.

If you have questions about any of my experience (or anything for that matter) feel free to reach out :) I typically will respond within 24 hours.

"I took violin lessons for a year with an instructor I found through a different organization (not TakeLessons)--and I learned more in one hour with Antoin

I've been taking cello and ukelele lessons from Jared and I could not recommend him more highly. Not only is he incredibly patient and
supportive, but he's got a fun, easy-going demeanor. He's so knowledgeable and passionate about music that he's really able to incorporate that into his lessons and tailor them to music that I'm interested in. He's very encouraging and pushes me beyond what I think I'm capable of doing. I could not be happier with my lessons. I very much recommend Jared to anybody of any age or ability."

How to Teach Piano to Kids | 8 Ways to Support Your Little Mozart

By Megan L.

Studies show, time after time, that music lessons in early childhood are essential for creating neural pathways for brain development.  They also give children a head start on creativity and self-expression.  Music was likely our first language as human beings, and it still provokes a very primal response in us - anybody from anywhere in the world can listen to a song and know what emotion it is trying to convey. If you ask an adult if they took piano lessons as a child, many will say yes.   …
