My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.

Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

"Mike is an excellent teacher! He’s positive, encouraging, patient, and always flexible. My son has learned so much from him and Mike has inspired in him a love of playing the drums. He learns to play his favorite music and Mike makes the lessons fun and keeps my son engaged throughout the lesson. Very professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. So glad we found him!"

"Exceptional musician. Skilled and patient teacher.

I have been taking weekly guitar lessons with Nick for nearly four months now and it has been all I hoped for and more. As a recent retiree and amateur musician one of my goals is to rapidly improve my novice guitar skills. I was looking for a teacher who would push me hard but was willing to work with the particular songs and musical questions that I might bring to him each week. I could not be more pleased. Nick is able to immediately bring his knowledge and experience to any material that I bring to a lesson and he uses it as the basis for a wide range of teaching moments – whether it be technique, harmony, or improvisational approach. What I didn't anticipate was the extent to which his holistic, listening (and singing) based approach to playing an instrument has challenged me. Nick is making me a better musician not just a better guitar player. (And it is very helpful that he types out notes on all that we discuss and sends an email following each lesson.)"

"I have been taking lessons with Rebecca for a little over a year. During this time her high energy level and enthusiasm for teaching has made each lesson an absolute pleasure to attend.

She is a teacher who enjoys thinking during each lesson and providing her students with the right tools to improve their singing.

Rebecca’s unique teaching style also blends the technical and mental aspect of singing.

If you are a beginner or a more advanced singer looking to improve your technique, she is a great choice."

"Jerry has been a wonderful teacher for my 11-year-old beginner cornet player. My son had no prior formal music training and Jerry has been patient with providing basic music instruction. My child really enjoys their two 30-minute sessions each week and I know his progress is largely due to Jerry’s instruction. Jerry provides an appropriate amount of homework to complete throughout the week and gives encouraging feedback. I am glad that we found Jerry on TakeLessons and highly recommend him as a trumpet instructor."

"I've taken 3 lessons with Candida and I am blown away. I started taking lessons when I was a child, but had given up the instrument going into adulthood. Candida has helped awaken a love for music that I never knew I had. We are studying technique, music theory, and learning methods which are allowing me to not only learn faster, but appreciate and understand the progress that I am making. This multiples the enjoyment that I am getting from the instrument. Candida also does a good job of motivating you and contextualizing your progress and your goals. I am very excited that I am taking lessons with her!"

We love Heather! WOW! We were really surprised how amazing she is! My 16 year son was very apprehensive in getting a new piano teacher. He really enjoys the lessons and he has already improved in just a few lessons. She is very patient, upbeat, cool and funny. She is very gifted..."

"Christian has helped me through the basics all the way to beginner-intermediate stages of playing very rapidly. He has tuned each lesson difficulty after seeing weekly progress to fit my skill level and avoid "stale" lessons.

I will continue to use Christian as a great source for learning musical theory and technique."
