Hello! My name is Aimee and I am looking forward to meeting you. I have been teaching for 16 years and love helping my students achieve their musical goals. I believe every student is unique and therefore feel it is necessary to give each student a learning approach that is suitable to their individual ability. Every lesson with me will provide to the student consistent advancement in musical knowledge. Whether it is Playing guitar, Singing, ( or both), or Playing piano, I will help you get where you want to be. I do incorporate in the Lesson Plan, learning Music Theory to the applied instrument. I encourage a positive approach to learning music to ensure goals are met.

Aimee is wonderful! The best singing instruction I have ever had, by far.
Since day 1 she has been helping me to work on my singing technique by doing exercises that have strengthen my voice.
Also, Aimee is a teacher during and after the lesson. One of the things I appreciate most about here is that after every lesson she takes the time to prepare a sheet for me to practice, and whenever I pick a song I want to learn for the following week, she does research and preparation on it, so by the time the lesson comes, she has always great pointers and suggestions for me.
Looking forward to many more lessons!

First of all, Mrs. Aimee is very welcoming and also very professional. She is truly determine and committed to making the best that each student can be. The one thing that I absolutely loved about being taught by Mrs. Aime is that she actually gives me homework on how to practice, which not may instructures do.

This was my first lesson. I think it will work for me.

I feel less than qualified to give the right review for Mrs. Aimee. Her background is impressive. I chose her because she helped people with special needs, I am one of those people, though I had forgotten that is why I chose her. I chose her because she is female. And I feel more comfortable with women like her. I also very much liked the photograph of her because I am a photographer and it was very well planned out. The shadowing and the guitar. But I was not sure if she would be right for me. Until I met her. She is a professional. She is more professional than my own therapists and doctors. She has the ability to inspire greatness. I will always benefit from her teaching the guitar. And knowing her personably. I wanted to write my last overall review of her since instead of the cookie cutter reviews that were previously made. All of you love Mrs. Aimee as much as I do. But because of some technicalities I will no longer be working with her. My shortcomings get the better of me, but I learn each time. And I can move forward from each experience. So you go.....!

She encourages and gives detailed instuctions and is genourous with her time. And plays guitar very well at a level I could only dream of. She helped me remember a song I knew. And taught me different ways to play songs that I already know.
I also want to add that Aimee has been an excellent teacher, who is so very patient and talented!

First time ever learning to play an instrument and I must say I love Aimee! She knows her matter, and is very encouraging. I'm already playing and learning how to read music. I am truly happy I found her!

Amy is a GREAT teacher who works with any issues and can pin point ones you are not aware of while learning. I highly recommend her for lessons. As a female, it is easy to get intimidated by male instructors who do not have the patience to deal with the woman, Amy has that gift.

I found Aimee through TakeLessons after not being very satisfied with my daughter's previous guitar teacher. From my first conversation with Aimee, I knew choosing her was going to be the right decision. Her experience and expertise shows as she knows how to teach and is good at it. My wife and I feel blessed to have found Aimee and that she is our daughter's teacher now. We are planning to have her start teaching our youngest son piano.

My son, Joe, has been taking guitar lessons from Mrs. Aimee since he was in kindergarten. He is now in third grade. In second grade, he also started taking voice lessons from Mrs. Aimee. She has been a God-sent to us! She is a professional, hard-working guitar instructor. She also worked with our crazy schedule and taught Josiah through Skype a few times when we could not make it to her location on time. Mrs. Aimee is a consistent teacher who also is very patient and loving with her students. She made the lessons fun and interesting for my son by incorporating the kind of music genres that he liked. She is not only Josiah's guitar teacher but has now become a friend of the family.

I just had my first lesson with Aimee. Even though it is only my first I have no qualms about testifying to Aimee's ability as a teacher. I am very impressed. Aimee was boundless with her praise, encouragement and enthusiasm yet she tempered everything with constructive criticism which zeroed in on my particular needs. You must understand that I had had 2 years of classical guitar lessons (and I use the word 'lessons' loosely) with another instructor not associated with "Take Lessons", and I was at a point where I still felt like a novice and was even asking myself whether or not I would ever get any better. Fortunately for me, I found Aimee. She made my lesson time fun, sorely lacking with my previous instructor. She made it exciting! Her praise and encouragement was genuine and heartfelt. Her knowledge of her craft and instrument was extremely impressive. In my opinion, she is a gifted teacher and I very much look forward to a long and rewarding association. Need I say it? Well, I will anyway. Aimee is a very competent teacher and I highly recommend her. My time with her was well spent and productive. She has given me hope and excitement again about learning to play guitar.
