Overview

Want lessons that will cater to your needs or the needs of your child and not a book?

My lessons are designed to foster a love for music and focus on your dream in the music world as well as build knowledge and expertise from that focal point!

Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic repertoire or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your music goal!

Beginner? We can get you started on the right foot! I have experience with adult beginners, seniors and children of all ages. I have special curriculum and activities that enhance interest, reduce stress and help you to maintain what you learn.

Pre-schoolers have a curriculum all their own that teaches music through lovable animal characters with games on tablet, computer and other to teach, reinforce and excite their hearts.

Have some knowledge but just can't play or sing that special song? We can tailor a lesson just for that.

Can you read music but not play on your own? Can you play by ear and not read music? I have experience bridging the gaps.

Is your dream to become a Soloist, harmonizer or karaoke star? Accompany yourself or others or just play for fun? Then why not you and I embark on that exciting journey together!

Is your dream to become a church musician or play for a choir? or Are you already a church musician but need help with a particular song, program or musical?

Worship to Him is the reason that I do what I do!

Try us! You'll be glad you did!!!!


*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor, though the classes are very well structured.

Usually, we progress with a chosen curriculum according to the students music vision and initial overview during the 1st few classes. However, all curriculums are supplemented to enhance student performance and comprehension. Our supplemental material is used to go swifter for material that you grasp well and understand, and slower with more repetition for that that you need more practice, without being monotonous. It is also used to provide appropriate but exciting reinforcement of all material to ensure that material is retained.

We are forever updating material and also incorporate games and enhanced activities to keep lessons interesting and refreshing as well!

I also have experience in music therapy, teaching autistic, ADD, ADHD and those with varying degrees of brain damage.

It has been difficult finding an instructor who can work with my granddaughter, age 4, who can captivate her attention and encourage her to release her inner talent for singing. She just started for the first time singing and has since been singing solo in church in front of the congregation three times and Ms. Barbara has her set up for a recital this month at a new location.
GOD BLESS YOU, MS. BARBARA!!!!!!!

Barbara is a very lovely, talented, and honest woman. She is professional and gifted working with young children such as my granddaughter only four years old. She made her feel so comfortable and on the first day, made her so relaxed that she cooperated with the lessons taught through play. It is obvious that she isn't in it for the money, but for the imparted gift of talent she possesses. to her clients. I'm looking forward to the next lesson for my granddaughter. I will do my part in reinforcing the lessons at home to get the best she gives for my granddaughter.

Mis. Barbara is awesome. She is very encouraging, attentive, and passionate about teaching. I did not feel pressure, she made me feel very relaxed. It was as if I was talking to a long time friend. Her knowledge of music made me feel confident that I was in the right place. Thank you Takelessons, and especially Ms. Barbara, singing has always been a dream of mine, and now I'm getting the training and confidence to become the STAR I was born to be!
