About Sachie
Born to an award winning conductor and music teacher, I was exposed to music at a very early age. With my father’s supervision, I began my piano and ear-training at the age of three. At age four, I joined the Yamaha musical after-school program and engaged in group lessons. As I got older, group lessons gave way to private instruction as I learned and played piano passionately through my childhood.

I was born and raised in Hiroshima, Japan and left my native land in 2006 to the United States to better my education. In school I studied general music, with an emphasis on piano. Additionally,
I have also studied Early Childhood Development and Education.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons depending on the age and experience level of my students, but in general I believe in the Suzuki method as one of the tools for first steps. The Suzuki method is a very well established philosophy of learning that focuses on ear and practical training. By training ear and musicality while learning proper finger position, the child improves without spending too much time at the start learning note reading.
As the child quickly progresses I music theory and reading follow.

I am a passionate teacher and believe in the musical potential of all students. I am eager to work your child to help unlock their abilities and motivation. It is my view that communication is a two-way road and it is excited to provide instruction while properly communicating with her students. Through this, I can overcome each individual’s obstacles and also enhance their inner strengths. With the right instruction, developing the right motivation, and of course practice, she feels every student has the potential for great success.

Our first lesson was great! Sachie got a feel for where Danchi was at and made a plan to teach three areas: theory, technique and ear training. Sachie knows what she's doing!

When I went to takelessons for help with choosing the right instructor, i was led to Nicholas. The referring choice maker told me Nicholas would be using Adobe Premier. He did not. I dont think it was Nicholas fault, I think the takelesson person made an unintentional selection or did not communicate with Nicholas that I did not want to take Adobe Photoshop, but wanted Adobe Premier. This is the second time this has happened. It makes learning very difficult and I dont think it is the instructors fault. Not sure what to do. This is the second time this has happened.

We did not feel that this was a good match for our daughter. I have taken voice lessons before and have 10 years background in music. We did not appreciate the teaching style and quality of lessons. We decided not to pursue this or any further service with Take Lessons due to their lack in transparency of their business policies.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will s
tudy similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.

What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Allison and I worked on a screenplay together which won an award. The process by which that screenplay was written, is the interesting part. Allison shared many different ways that she uses to create the world of the story and then fill it with characters. She easily explains how interactions and dialogue can be elevated, in order to pull an audience member into the story. I have never seen such a unique and easy to follow writing style as Allison shared with me.

Enjoy creating with a true creator.

Allison sees things, creates scenes, personifies purity in her writing that can only be described as singularly unique! Personally, she helped me to expand my vision, redirect ANYTHING from my past or present toward creative expression and ultimately made me a better poet, script writer and professional entertainer. You could not find a more caring, enthusiastic and easy-going teacher!

About John
Education is a journey. A personal journey that everyone must take. Each student has his/her very own learning style and must work to find how to take ownership of their journey. As a guide along that journey, I found that students need encouragement and patience. As a tutor, I strive to give my students what they need to be successful in their own journey.
