About Barbara D.

I have been teaching for many years and would love to take you on a fun, flexible and step by step journey to attain your goals in Piano, Organ, Voice, Reading and Phonics, Math, Typing or Word for Windows Course in a group or private class format. I hold a Bachelor's Degree and have been active in voice, piano, organ, public speaking and writing all of my life.

Reading and Phonics is a weekly or Bi-weekly Program. It can be taught as either a full learn to read program, homeschool course or as a tutoring program for problem or challenging areas.

Math learning is in attainable and non-stressful increments designed to foster a complete understanding of mathematical concepts and their relationships and to foster an "I CAN DO IT! ATTITUDE!

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

My Reading and Phonics lessons are made to dazzle and awe your child into an understanding of letters, sounds, and the written page with several learning enrichment programs as well as numerous supplemental material. I also love to work with teachers when possible and use placement tests to determine where to start and periodically to know how to continue. (The kids just think they are games).

All of my lessons are designed to foster a love for reading, math or music and focus on your reading and Phonics goals or your dream in the music world as well as build knowledge and expertise for all three!

Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic reading, computation, repertoire, not wanting to stumble over words or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your reading, math or music goals!

Beginner? We can get you started on the right foot! I have experience with tweens, teens, 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 phonics, reading or music through lovable animal characters with games on tablet, computer and other resources that teach, reinforce and excite their hearts to learn and retain what they learn.

Does your child have some knowledge but just has not excelled in math, phonics or reading? We can tailor lessons for just that.

Maybe you have some music knowledge but just can't play or sing that special song? We can tailor lessons for that, too!

Maybe your child knows letters and sounds but just hasn't made the leap to reading? We can tailor the lessons to get your child from point B to Z!
Perhaps math is a dirty word or causes your child to cringe or have great anxiety! I would love to help them to enjoy math instead of feeling annoyed at math.

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 just for your child to be able to read at grade level or above? I will give it my all for them to do so.

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?

Does your Church just sing Hymns? We can do Hymn Lessons.

Does your Church sing only Gospel? We can do Gospel Lessons?

Does your Church only do Contemporary Christian? We can do Contemporary Christian Lessons.

*** 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 student's or parent's 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 teaching autistic, ADD, ADHD and those with varying degrees of brain damage.

Ms. Barbara had a very positive attitude and worked well with my son. I would definitely recommend her if you need someone who gives good advice on song choices that match the singing style of the student.

I'm delighted with Barbara as my piano instructor! As a senior citizen I find her knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, kind, friendly and professional in her approach. She takes into account my aims and goals as she develops effective lessons to reach those goals. Her music methods are up to date, as she matches the music to my preferred tastes. As she challenges me to reach my potential, she also allows for flexibility In order to meet my needs. I have also observed her working with very young children as well as young adults with the same satisfying results. I am very pleased and I recommend Barbara as the answer to your search for a piano instructor !

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!
