Music Lessons in Toledo, OH

Did you know that famed jazz musician Arthur Tatum, singer Crystal Bowersox and R&B artist Lyfe Jennings came from a little town called Toledo, Ohio. Though known for its manufacturing industry, the fourth most populous city in Ohio has also produced a number of talented musicians over the years. However, we believe that Glass City still has more plenty of music talent to offer. Believe it or not, with the right attitude, hard work, skill and practice you could be one of Toledo’s next big musicians.

However, before you start a career in music, we suggest that you first take the time to brush up on your skills. Of course one great way to do so is by enrolling yourself in our Toledo music lessons with one of our certified TakeLessons music teachers?

Mitchel B. Toledo, OH

About Mitchel

Hello Students and Parents, I have been playing several instruments since I was very young, and am excited to share my passion for music with you! I have recently graduated from the Michigan State University College of Music, currently teach music at several public schools, and play in local ensembles. I have been very fortunate to tour the United States as a drummer with multiple ensembles including The Pioneer Drum and Bugle Corps, the Michigan State University Percussion Studio, and the Plymouth Canton Educational Park Drumline. I love all genres of music. Sometimes I feel that I have no choice but to blast my favorite hip-hop or electronic tunes while on the go. Other days, I immerse myself in the exploration of technique and emotion while perfecting some of Beethoven's late ...

My son has really enjoyed his lessons with Mitch and he thinks Mitch is a great teacher. "He keeps it challenging and you learn different things each time" (building on past material). Mitch has also encouraged my son when he has thought out of the box, such as designing his own rhythms or drumming on various surfaces such as buckets. He meets my son where he is at and encourages him to grow from there.

As a parent, I have found Mitch to be extremely professional. He is prompt, or if on the rare occasion is running late, he calls to let us know. He is flexible with scheduling and very easy to work with. It has been a wonderful experience for us so far, and my son is really enjoying his lessons.
Carrie A. Monclova, OH

About Carrie

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~ *** Lesson Details *** I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about ...

Carrie is a wonderful instructor with my teenage daughter. She has the right teaching skills to push her when needed and has her always reaching for more. Her variety of instructing skills is what makes her great. She makes the lessons fun, beneficial and full of challenges. I would recommend her to everyone. My daughter has been going to her for almost 1 full year now and the difference is amazing. Besides her singing her confidence with stage and performing has exceeded my expectations. Thank you Carrie!!!

James R. Toledo, OH

About James

Having grown up with music (my Dad was a drummer in the Navy and in several local dance bands), it’s difficult to believe I have been able to make a living doing something I have enjoyed all my life. Starting, obviously on the drums, I was involved at an early age in a marching drum and baton corp that played in numerous parades throughout the summer months. I played tenor drum and ended up playing glockenspiel, learning the two songs “Five Foot Two” and “Ain’t She Sweet.” Shortly after that I began learning to play the organ. I started out at a local music store learning things like “Alley Cat” and “Whispering,” and after a few years moving on to lessons from a local Church Organist and my career blossomed from there. In high school I was involved in several vocal and ...

Nicholas L. Perrysburg, OH

About Nicholas

Hello eager students! My name is Nick and I have been recording and performing in the Toledo area for 12 years. In that time I have put out five studio records including: Strydir Lee, Careless and Free, Acoustics Volume 1, Electric Money Burns, and Phony Cosmic Clues. I have played on a number of local stages here in Toledo and gained a large following on stages in Chicago, Cincinnati and Detroit. I was even lucky enough to perform live on the Mitch Albom radio show! Over the years students and friends have come to me to learn how to play guitar or bass and how to write their own music. So not only will I give you professional lessons but I'll also allow you to record in my studio with me so you can create your own masterpiece! What I can teach is an understanding of music that ...

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless!
