I'm a 58 year old complete novice. Aaron has been very patient and doesn't seem to mind starting from scratch. Every time we come to the end of the lesson I have something new, and wish I had more time.

Bryan E. Oakley, CA

About Bryan

Hello! Music has consumed me from a very young age, and has been a defining force ever since. I started singing in Kindergarten, and began playing the viola, cello, and saxophone in middle school. During high school, while performing in every vocal and band solo and ensemble I could, it became very clear that I wanted to pursue music in college. I attended Hastings College, a private liberal arts college in the heart of Nebraska, where I received my Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance. During college, and since, I have had a private music studio teaching students piano, voice, and a little guitar from ages 5 to 87, so I have seen a great deal of talent over the years. I enjoy all ages and genders, but having been a male in music I am aware of the stigma young males face ...

My son is 7 years old and can sometimes be a little hyper. He has seizures so he is on this medication that makes him a little hyper. I have to say that Bryan is very patient with my son and my son loves going to piano lessons. When he is sick and have to miss class, he actually cries. I live in Mountain House and Brian lives in Oakley, which is a little drive for us. I have to say, it is very much worth the drive. My son had no experience with piano before he started with Bryan and I have to say that he has learned so much in these past few months. Bryan is an excellent teacher and as long as I can afford him, I will definitely continue to take my son to piano lessons.

I've learned more than expected!

Bryan has been an amazing teacher for me as I'm learning to sing at the age of 36. I didn't realize how much was involved with all the technical aspects of singing. Thank you, Bryan, for showing me the way, and allowing me to reach a goal that I have for later this year!

Easy to sign up and Great customer service

My 12 yr old decided he wanted drums for Christmas and we knew that would include getting him lessons. Finding Christian through Take lessons was indeed lucky for my son. If you are looking for a teacher who is calm, level headed, knowledgeable and very easy to contact at anytime then Christian is who you are looking for. He has several students and they all come out happy and feeling good about their lessons. My son, even when not feeling great insist that he attend his drum lessons. compliments to the instructor.

About Greg

I started playing guitar in the 5th grade and in middle school began playing in rock groups. At the beginning of high school, I started teaching in some of the local music stores in the area. While wanting more from my playing, I started classical guitar lessons with an Andre Segovia student, Rani Cochran, and soon started lessons from Warren Nunes, a top jazz guitarist in the Bay Area. While continuing to take lessons in both types of music, I majored in Music at the local college. There I played in the jazz band and in guitar ensembles. After receiving my A.A. degree, I took classical guitar lessons with Larry Ferrara at the Conservatory of Music in San Francisco. At this point I transferred to San Jose State University and received a B.A. in guitar performance and a B.A. in ...

Do I Need to Learn Scales on the Ukulele?
New to the ukulele and curious if you'll need to learn scales? Music teacher Aaron B. shares the pros and cons of studying ukulele scales... The ukulele is mostly a chordal instrument and usually does not play solos or single note melody lines. So, the use of scale patterns on the neck is not essential. However, knowledge of scales and harmony is absolutely essential in the comprehension of music. Scales help us understand which notes work well together and why. Each key has its own innate
