Sarah is very patient with my daughter. She tailors the class to her personality. She gets her to do the class in a fun way. She makes the class enjoyable but still focuses on her growth. She pushes Alexa enough to keep her going. She motivates her to learn. My daughter looks forward to her lessons. Recommend!

Mr. Johnson is a FABULOUS violin instructor. I haven't played in 20 years, and after a few lessons my technique is coming back. His teaching style is one where he pushes you beyond your expectations. He's an excellent teacher for beginners and experienced violinists. I also love that he is so talented in many genres of music...such a gifted violinist. Hope to play like him again soon. I highly recommend this teacher.

Raycurt has developed and implemented a constructive way for beginners to understand the violin, comprehend music theory, and figure out how to make this instrument sound good!

Khemya is so patient, and was able to make a connection with Rajen so easily. Her empathy and overall sense of caring really made the lessons special. She communicated with him in a really great way, and he got a lot out of the lessons. We can't recommend her enough!

I have greatly enjoyed having Rebecca as my teacher. She was very dedicated to helping me improve and genuinely cared about my success. Her breathing techniques were the best I have ever seen. She has also helped display my strengths and add to my love of singing. Her flexibility was also very helpful.

Rebecca Luttio is an amazing voice teacher

Rebecca is an Incredible person to study voice with, She has and inspiringly beautiful sound, and she's really friendly, upbeat, positive, and always enthusiastic about what were doing. Every time I don't understand something, she finds a new way to explain it, and seems to have an infinite amount of patients. I feel like what has changed the most since I began taking lessons with Rebecca, Is the physical training that comes with singing opera, as well as learning how to use your air and broadening your range, which would have never crossed my mind before. I really like that she is a student as well as a teacher and comes to every lesson with new Ideas. For me the couple years we have worked together so far have really changed the way I sing with my whole body, I would recommend her to anyone who really loves to sing.

Excellent teacher who is incredibly knowledgeable in all aspects of music. His use of the "pivot system" got me reading music in no time. As with all lessons, practice helps move things along, but even when "life" got in the way, Dan always made great use of our time. I will probably start up with him again once my schedule clears.

Although, I've never met Kenya personally, my usually shy daughter has been completely comfortable around her. I a few short lessons she's already learned sooooo much. My daughter and I both look forward to more lessons from her in the very near future. Thanks TakeLessons and THANK YOU KENYA!

I wish I could have continued my lessons. Hopefully I'll be able to continue this in the future, but wanted to say that Kenya is a very kind and patient teacher, and I hope to be able to take lessons from her again when the time comes. I really liked her approach to teaching an old dog like myself.

Kenya is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and has a good read on my 8 and 5 yr olds so as to not push too much but is by no means a push over. I like her soft spoken firm style.
