Hello! I've been performing for 21 years and teaching for 15 years. Teaching has always been a passion for me! Whether you're an adult trying the violin or viola for the first time, or a dedicated student aiming to major in music, I can adapt my approach to suit your needs. I will help you build confidence in your playing through presenting attainable goals each week, while also providing appropriate challenges. I aim to help you feel comfortable and natural as you play by prioritizing proper posture and technique.

I have a Master's degree from the Peabody Conservatory in Violin Performance with an emphasis in pedagogy. I have performed in the U.S.A. and Europe, with well-known artists such as Andrea Bocelli, Yo-Yo Ma, Itzahk Perlman, and the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. My teacher training includes the Suzuki method (registered for books 1-5) and the Mark O'Connor method (certified for books 1-2).

My hope is that the violin or viola becomes a constant source of inspiration and ...

Mrs. Hollis is a very kind and patient instructor. She is great at teaching technique and important skills that have to be learned in order to play the violin at your best. My son Ben absolutely loves taking lessons with her and he has learned so much. She is so professional, talented and has so much experience! She is a perfect instructor for anyone who would like to learn to Play the violin!
Olivia
Mrs. Hammonds is such a wonderful teacher! I came to her when I just started high school and was overwhelmed with joy when I found such a great teacher. Focusing on memorization, technique, and working on a solid foundation even after playing for 10 years prior, really reflected in my playing. I think she was the teacher who really showed me why I wanted to play violin and set my foundation up to improve more and more even today!
Kim
As an adult student that let my violin sit idle for too many years, Hollis was able to help me regain some basics skills and build upon them to re-learn different playing styles. Her approach was refreshing and focused on helping me re-learn some classical pieces that were familiar to my background. In addition, she introduced some jazz and fiddle pieces that I was interested in branching out with and worked with me to fine tune bowing techniques for each style.
I would highly recommend Hollis as an instructor for anyone starting out or looking to improve upon existing skills!

Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online.
Gaurav Jung Pande
I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.
Nicolas Parada
Super talented, yet super down to earth. Great teacher and ridiculously knowledgeable, yet super funny. I had been a self taught bass player for years before taking Charles' course at NYU and was hoping to try out a new instrument and learn it the "right way" through lessons, expecting things to be very academic. But Charles works in a way that is surprisingly individual-based, and so that while you do learn a lot, you do so at your own pace and having fun along the way. By blending your own formal course goals with his own knowledge and incredible feel for the instrument alongside the songs you want to learn (often times you learn them together- he is great at picking up new, unfamiliar tunes by ear) it creates an experience that keeps you picking up the guitar long after you leave the classroom. Where I am now with guitar and where I started at first are miles and miles apart thanks to him, and he's just a super chill guy who likes playing guitar. Who also happens to be ridiculously qualified. 10/10 would recommend.

Great experience with Lynn, also after having had sax lessons for over a decade now. She clearly loves to play and jam and has tons of experience teaching it.
Arthur F.
My first lesson with Lynn was wonderful. I was greeted at the door with a warm smile That made me feel at ease. I'm an absolute beginner and even my mistakes were fun.
Lynn; I love your personality and your teaching method. I got a lot out of that lesson.
And, by the time I'm 75 which is in about 5 months and with your guidance I'll be able to play a tune or two. I got a good teacher. Looking forward too lesson Number 2.
Dave P.
I've worked with Lynn for going on three years now and she has without a doubt been one of the most talented and most enjoyable people to make music with that I've ever encountered. Not only does she rock the sax better than most, she's extremely humble and approaches music with an openness and extremely positive energy. I give her my highest recommendation as a great teacher, and a great human being.

I've been teaching beginning and intermediate drum students on and off for the last 15 years, and I'm excited to take on more students at this time. All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Learn drum set so you can play in a band, get going on rudiments and make the snare line, focus on orchestral technique, or get a mix of whatever interests you.

Andy is an excellent instructor.

My 14 year old son had been playing drums for an hour or more every day for several months, and was making fair progress. He was convinced he could learn the drums on his own. But between his first and second lesson he improved exponentially. We were clearly going down the right path.

While my son was uncomfortable with the idea of taking lessons from someone he didn’t really know, Andy established a strong rapport with him by the end of lesson 1. And he was very eager to come back for lesson 2.

We intend to continue lessons with Andy for the foreseeable future.

"My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about."
