Jerry is the greatest, with a particularly wonderful way of inspiring children with a fun and humorous spirit, alleviating anxiety, while promoting them to learn skills both concretely and even abstractly. Finding him on here, and experiencing his giftedness in teaching my nine-year-old daughter was a godsend. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

She is super cheerful and helpful. I've been having fun taking lessons from her. I 200% recommend you to have her as your teacher. I don't think 5 stars are enough to rate her. She deserves more! Lol.

I was impressed by her passion for music and teaching. She had all the ideas in detail about how she would direct the lessons. I'm pretty sure she could handle the advanced level. I can't wait for the next lesson.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"So happy I found Laima!

I recently started taking piano lessons again after not playing for about 24 years since I was a child. I wasn't sure how it was going to be trying to re-learn after forgetting everything and if I would even enjoy it. I have to say I am so happy that Take Lessons recommended Laima to me and am so glad I decided to do it! I am very impressed with Laima's teaching techniques. She makes every lesson very engaging and fun, and I find myself learning quickly because I am really enjoying it and because of her exceptional teaching style. Laima is kind, energetic and an amazingly skilled piano player, singer and teacher. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn. I had a lot of music classes and lessons as a child, and she is the best teacher I've ever had by far."

"Oscar was such a good instructor that I don’t think I’d ever want to be taught piano by anyone else. He gave me personal piano lessons for ~5 years. He was always patient and understanding whenever I struggled with sheet music that was trivial to him, making sure he put himself in my shoes and tried to visualizr how to best provide guidance on the process of mastering the technique.
Oscar is an expert at a variety of musical genres ranging from classical music to modern jazz. His range is so wide that once, I even asked him to help me learn a hard rock/metal tune, and despite not being familiar with the genre, he was capable of extrapolating his knowledge into understanding the sheet music and how it was meant to be played to the point where he was better than me at playing this song (even when I’d practice it daily and he was just reading it on the fly!).
Oscar was always flexible and understanding of time conflicts, even inviting me to play at his house at some points where my piano was broken and/or unavailable.
I liked Oscar as a teacher so much, that I even convinced him of giving me and my family some cooking lessons!"

How to Write Your Own Music: A Beginner’s Guide to Piano Composition 

After hearing a new piece of music, listeners often ask, “How’d you come up with that?”  However, this question often implies, “Why did you write that?”  The "why" is not answered easily. Creativity comes from a mysterious place.  Neuroscientists have shown that creative thinkers tend to be “right-brained”  processors (and synthesizers) of information. However, the impetus to compose includes a myriad of both internal and external factors, and often, these factors are elu …
