Aleena has been an amazing teacher for my son Isaac. Her level of
patience, knowledge and understanding with the ability to translate that in
a way that he can easily understand, I think is amazing.

Aleena is an amazing piano instructor.. She has truly been a blessing to me abd my daughter's life and teaching her how to play all types of music including classical music and her favorite song, "Fur Elise!" Aleena goes over and beyond to make sure her students are the "best of the best" and will not let them settle for anything less than that! I would recommend her to anyone who has a desire or passion for playing the piano and who loves the general aspect of music.. Aleena is patient, understanding, caring to all of her students and is always willing to help them reach their ultimate goals! Thanks so much for being an inspiration to me and my daughter and for helping her to create her musical path and finding a creative niche that she enjoys and wishes to pursue!

This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too.

James really gave me excellent advice about how to structure my practicing and enjoy myself musically and otherwise. I'd give him several points above average.
