DeShawn S.
I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.
Tori
Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

Fantastic instruction. Patient, clear, and ensured she was meeting my daughter where she is at. Significantly more productive class times compared with our last in person teacher.
Patrick
I have been learning from Jonathan for the past two months. She is a very supportive and patient teacher. I was a complete beginner when I first started, but after one to two weeks, I can play easy tunes like Twinkle Twinkle. Whenever I have any questions regarding the violin, she can give me helpful solutions. When I have lessons with her, I can immediately know where I need to improve and gain a few extra tips on my playing.

I would highly recommend Jonathan to you (people who are browsing on Takelessons)!
Aurora
I had my first lesson with Jonathan today. He is personable, informative, gave constructive feedback and encouraged me. I found his style of instruction helpful.
I’m looking forward to my next lesson with him.

"Jason is a really good instructor. He’s an awesome drummer and he helps you discover your abilities by finding out what you want to play then walking you though it so you see yourself how it’s done. And he also makes sure you know the fundamentals every drummer should know. He even checks with me during the week to see how I’m doing and gives me excercises that help me improve. I’d definitely recommend him"

"No experience, no problem. Colin knows how to play.

I had never played drums before my first lesson but I had a singing background which gave me a good rythm. Colin was able to assess my coordination and abilities within that first lesson and understand how hard to push me. Colin is very good at the drums but knows what it takes to get there. Despite his elite skills he is able to relate well to the beginner, understand the different issues they are having, and provide a solution. I've been taking lessons at Colin's house where he has a couple of drum sets in the basement. The equipment he has is very good. It can be a little cold in the basement during a minnesota winter but when you're drumming it's not a big deal. I would say that his basement is an average place to play, but he's got good equipment which is most important. While teaching he doesn't follow a lesson book. He provides a good progression of excersises that allow you to gradually learn while using the entire drum set. Colin is a great teacher who is always willing to answer your questions and provides very fun lessons."
