I have two sons that have been taking lessons with Jordan for 10 months. He is teaching both my sons, one the guitar and the other piano. I have used one previous instructor from takelessons.com for piano lessons and he was good. However, Jordan does not constantly reschedule lessons and I can see more progress in how fast my son is learning and his enthusiasm to learn. I am happy I switched my son who plays the piano to Jordan, whom was already teaching my other son guitar.

Key Points:
Jordan, is good at assessing a student’s abilities and interests and adjusting his lessons accordingly

He makes the lessons fun and challenging.

He has gone out of his way to learn about my sons and their interests, so when they were introduced to guitar and piano, they were able to learn and play music that they already enjoyed listening to

He is a gifted musician but also highly skilled at teaching. He works well with families and has a flexible schedule.

He is fair but firm with students

The highlight for me was hearing my sons have a jam session together

Jordan has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill and enthusiasm, making my sons WANT to learn.

I would highly recommend him as a teacher.

Jordan is amazing, he can just learn a song by ear the first time he hears it, I’ve been working with him for a little over a year and I never thought I’d be able to do that, but my ear has really started to develop. He always offers positive critique, never negative and always patient!!

Jordan is a good teacher. Talented. Patient. Smart.
My daughter responded well to him.

About Isaac

TEACHING STYLE: I provide positive, patient, professional instruction, customized to each individual student's levels and goals.

LEVELS: I teach all levels of students; beginner through advanced are all welcome. I teach all ages-- children (age 5+), teens and adults.

LOCATIONS: I teach in 3 locations: (1) my home in San Diego (92129), (2) in your home if you prefer (if your home is located within my travel radius), or (3) anywhere in the world via online saxophone lessons!

FOCUS: Lessons are customized based on the student's levels, musical preferences and goals. Beginning students will learn basic saxophone technique and fundamentals, sight reading (learning to read music), ear training and theory.

For students who have mastered the basics and are more advanced, lessons are focused on three main areas:

(1) Tone

development: A beautiful sound will set you apart.
(2) Technical facility: in order to be a great improviser, you need the technical facility to play what you hear in your head and I can help you get there.
(3) The jazz language, through rigorous transcription and a practical application of those concepts by soloing over chord progressions (blues, rhythm changes, etc.). Students will be able to immediately apply the concepts learned through transcription to real live performances and other contexts.

I also coach students as they prepare for auditions, such as high school or college bands, or for work as a professional musician.

MUSICAL STYLE: I am fluent in a variety of musical styles and customize musical repertoire based on my students' tastes and goals. Genres I specialize in include: straight ahead/traditional jazz, smooth jazz, classical, pop, funk, hip-hop, R & B, Gospel, contemporary Christian music, soul and much more.

Lessons are generally once per week and scheduled at a regular time. If you have different scheduling needs, please let me know and I will do my best to work with your schedule.

LESSON LENGTH: Beginning students typically start with 30 minute lessons; intermediate and advanced students usually opt for 60 minute lessons.

RESCHEDULING/CANCELLATIONS POLICY: please give me at least 24 hours notice if you would like to reschedule a lesson. Missed lessons with less than 24 hours notice will not be rescheduled. Exceptions: sudden illness (e.g., waking up that same morning with a fever) or sudden true emergency (e.g., severe accident or injury, etc.).

Some of my training/education and experience include:

B.A.: Music Performance


M.A.: Jazz Studies from California State University, Long Beach (Bob Cole Conservatory). 


Studied with Eric Marienthal (Chic Corea, Rippingtons, and Peak Records Recording Artist).


My latest single, "Begin Again," was a radio success and made Billboard's Most Added List for the Smooth Jazz Chart


I've performed/recorded with Kirk Whalum (saxophonist on Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"), Malcolm Jamal-Warner, DW3, among many others, as well as at Paisley Park (the late Prince's estate).

I have seen Isaac teach kids, adults and professionals. I have also seen Isaac play at weddings, churches and professional concerts. I even saw him play at his own wedding! He is by far the best saxophone player I have ever met. I highly recommend Isaac.

When you work with Isaac, you are working with a professional musician. As a professional, Isaac shows up on time, follows through on his promises and delivers a high quality service.

On top of that, Isaac can put on one heck of a show!

The crowning moment when he played at the Chateau Marmont Hotel during the middle of a birthday dinner and all the celebrities seated at other tables shut up and listened and then applauded. They had no idea who he was but we all felt his gift. That was a divine experience from a fearless master of his craft that will remain forever etched in my soul.

About Grace

I am a professional violinist and violist. I graduated with a Bachelors of Music from Rhodes College, concentrating in violin and viola.

My teaching style involves pushing my students to reach their full potential, while encouraging them along the way. My curriculum includes the Suzuki method, sight reading, and note reading. Students can improve their technique and become more advanced players. I also offer special lessons in chamber music and orchestral playing.

I teach students of all ages and levels, but specialize in beginner or intermediate violin and viola students. Students will be able to operate at a comfortable pace based on their individual level.

I frequently play gigs in Memphis, Southaven, and Olive Branch, and have recently accompanied several high profile artists at Royal Studios. I will teach my students how to tak

e full advantage of their abilities, and how to market themselves for gig opportunities.

About Jeremiah

I am excited to begin teaching lessons in music, Bible, and academics. I have the knowledge necessary to teach my students beginning and intermediate levels of music and Bible as well as offer help with academic needs.

I am a graduate of Baptist Bible College in Springfield, MO and have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Church Music and Bible. Whether my students want to develop an interest and love for music, Bible, and/or academics, I want to be an example, mentor, and friend and show them that learning is fun and has value. Within professional standards, I do not intend to convert students, however I would be glad to share my faith and knowledge to those who express interest in learning more.

Though I have limited experience in teaching, I have the knowledge and skills necessary to explain concepts. My future plans include becomin

g certified in multiple instruments (piano, voice, and possibly clarinet and guitar) through the Music Teacher National Association (MTNA) so that I can possess more credentials and better credibility in my future teaching endeavors.

Please consider me as your instructor so we can begin this learning journey together.

About Ellen

I am an undergraduate senior at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor studying piano performance and philosophy, with strong passions for critical thinking, piano pedagogy, chamber music, and contemporary music. I recently won top prizes in the Sewanee Summer Music Festival Concerto Competition, the Camerata Artists International Virtuoso II Competition, and the American Protégé International Piano and Strings Competition, where I was able to make my Carnegie Hall debut at Weill Recital Hall in 2018. I attended the Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Division in New York City for 10 years, and have been playing chamber music ever since I began there at the age of 7. I also attended the Brearley School for seven years, where I had rigorous academic training in the sciences, humanities, and leadership.

As a musician leading a double li

fe with substantial academic training and work, I truly value learning music alongside a well-rounded education, as I believe that music is the quintessential liberal art. Just on its own, learning to play an instrument requires discipline, focused attention, and hard work. With the combination of a strong education, students can understand not only how to execute what is on the page in front of them, but understand music in context and have the ability to understand what music can communicate to others and themselves. For this reason, I incorporate academic components like music theory, composer biographies, contextual history, philosophy, and literature in ways that are accessible and fun to learn at all ages. I hope to build up students who not only improve their playing, but acquire skill sets that make them smarter and carry over into all aspects of their lives.

Ellen is great at teaching both my daughter and myself. Very friendly, personable and understands the piano and classical repertoire at a high level. She’s really helped me with my fundamentals and music theory. My daughter (who is much better than I) mainly studies classical music with her and I love to hear her progress. Ellen is warm and accommodating and I’d recommend her to anyone!

About Cole

I’m a lead vocalist and guitarist for my worship team at my church. I have been playing guitar for 15+ years and have been teaching others for almost 10 years.

I spend the bulk of our first lesson trying to figure out what your goals are. Some people are aiming for the big stage, while others just want to learn a few songs that will impress their friends and loved ones. For any goal you have I can equip you to get there.

I have a few key values and commitments I make as a guitar teacher that have proven successful:
1. Cultivate an environment that is encouraging for the student.
2. Highlight areas of strength and build from there.
3. Give productive critique, feedback, and advice on how to improve.
4. Agree on a practice schedule in our first lesson that will help the student meet their goals and set them up for success.


5. Remain available during the week to answer questions and provide guidance in between lessons.
6. Receptive to ways that I can better teach you and help you meet your goals.
7. Have fun playing the BEST instrument in the entire world!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for a lesson today and let’s get you ready for the big stage, or mom’s living room! I’m excited to go on this adventure with you!

"I am a new beginner and I never knew how to read or play the piano or any instrument. It has always been my dream to play the piano. Dianne is a very, ve
ry good teacher. She takes her time and heart to explain the history behind the piano, along with lessons. She makes me fill like I am part of her family as she welcomes me in her home to take lessons. I look so forward to my next lesson. I rate her five stars plus!!!"

"Victor was on time and very friendly. My daughter happily jumped right into playing.

The best review I can give is that this morning after the lesso

"Jimmy is the best vocal teacher around. I call him my vocal coach because his teaching is more like coaching. He allows you to develop at your own pace. H
e does not rush you. His patience and diligence to help you develop your abilities as a singer demonstrates how much he cares for you to be your very best in a short period of time. His recording studio is state of the art in that you feel you are a professional singer recording your music. He is the best out there!"

"Corinne is an absolutely wonderful instructor! I took private lessons with her in middle school, and she not only gave me the skills to master several aud
itions but refined my techniques and reformed bad habits that I had acquired throughout my clarinet “career”. She enabled me to build strong practice exercises that worked specifically for me after observing how I worked as a clarinetist. Our relationship continued as I moved into high school concert and marching band as she was our clarinet instructor for various workshops and sessions. She helped me learn to lead and instruct others in my section in the role of section leader. My growth continued (even after my private lessons ended) as she learned my strengths and weaknesses in an individual and group setting. Without Corinne, I definitely would not have the accolades and/or titles in the realm of music that I have now. As an instructor, Corinne doesn’t simply care about the short term goals or specific event to which you may come to her for assistance, but she cares about the musician you will be and techniques you will possess in the long term. She will work with you to find the best foundation upon which you can build up skills, a fine repertoire, and wonderful musicianship. I have had the pleasure of working with Corinne for over 5 years now in various settings, and I can say without a doubt that there is no one better for any clarinet instruction you may need!"
