My two children have been taking lessons with Dan for the past few months. He is excellent!! He is very engaging, energetic and enthusiastic about music. This helps keep my kids motivated. He as been very flexible with our crazy schedule and the online flexibility is fantastic. My kids are progressing well and learning things they never covered in their previous in person lessons. Without Take Lessons, my kids would probably not be in piano at this time. Thanks!!

With consideration, verbal encouragement, and a ready smile - challenged me to see what kind of a learner I will be. I learned a LOT in the very first lesson.

Depending on your singing level and experience, Dan will help you find the very little details that will help you take your singing voice and craft to a whole new level. In just 3 lessons, Dan has helped me go from an amateur singer with lots of potential to possibly becoming a potentially great recording artist with the important technique necessary in becoming one.
