It a great experience so far !

Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

Susan.
Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!

Getting the notes right is crucial. Your performance of those notes is equally as crucial. Our favorite performers have more than just the ability to perform notes though they connect with the work they are presenting and the audience they are presenting it to. I've been performing for over 25 years and would love to help you with your performance technique. We'll work on stance, delivery, emotional connection, and creative visualization to help you deliver your best possible performance. I also specialize in helping one overcome stage fright / performance anxiety. I can help you develop the tools necessary to find a relaxation state and that helps you reach your utmost performance potential.

I was born and raised in Los Angeles but I've just recently relocated to the Bay Area. I am a Professional Musician/Songwriter/Vocalist teaching songwriting, voice, and performance technique as well as a combination thereof. I began singing at a very young age for anyone who would listen (so my pa

I learned so much from my lessons with Arrica! It was a great balance of learning the basics/ warmups I needed to build a better foundation -- and practicing and learning a song I wanted to focus on. Arrica was supportive, encouraging, and very helpful and specific in her feedback.

Do you want to take your skills to the stage? Do you want to learn how to book the right stage for you while also having the skills to land you more gigs in the future? I'm your guy for that!

We'll study your favorite artist and see what they are doing right and how you can do it too! I'm all about benchmarking, you've got to have a point of reference and be coming from somewhere.

That's probably people are dumbfounded to see me perform Frank Sinatra, Led Zeppelin, Jay-Z, James Brown, Prince, Michael Jackson, and Marvin Gaye all in one night. I study the greats so I can be great, and you can be too.

I have a degree in jazz guitar from the Eastman School of Music.

Blake is a great instructor. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. He went at the pace I needed (glacial) and encouraged me every step of the way. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Max
Blake is a seasoned musician with experience in just about every genre imaginable. Whether it's technique, harmony, theory or aural skills, he can explain any seemingly difficult idea in a concise, logical way. With all the knowledge of a conservatory trained guitarist and gigging musician, he's a down to earth teacher who simply loves music and is passionate about sharing it with his students.
Michael
Blake is a dedicated teacher who helped me improve right away! I wasn't at all sure what I wanted (or needed) to work on next but he picked up right away what was best for me. So grateful to have worked with him.

"I have had the pleasure of playing in very complex musical collaborations with Suzan G. a couple of times recently and am thrilled to find out that she is a teacher with Takelessons. I am a TL music teacher, and having seen her live and in person and discussed the theory of the music we are performing, I can highly recommend her.

Suzan is thoroughly knowledgable about music theory and composition and movement. Her piano skills are excellent especially when seen in the arena of jazz improve composition on the fly with a group of professionals. She can sight read complicated charts and sing beautifully at the same time, for songs she has never done, and these are the challenges that true musicians thrive upon.

As a TL teacher of children also, I can see that Suzan is very family friendly and cheerful, kind and helpful. All good signs of an excellent teacher! Your Kids will love her.

Way to go, Suzan, and keep up the great work!"

She is a consummate musician; not only does she play superbly, she has extensive knowledge of music theory, as well as possessing a repertoire of works which are appropriate in multiple settings. She is a delight to work with - bringing not only her expertise, but her bright spirit to every endeavor. I commend her without reservation."

He is always kind about how he professes but also takes teaching seriously. he has an amazing capacity of patience and is willing to work with a student until they are comfortable and confident in their skill. He has taught me things from bass clef to crochet. His sense of humor makes his lessons light and easy to let the information sink in.

So going in for voice and learning how to use a the microphone but also the icing of knowing what to say. I am not perfect now, but not a horrifying mess like I was. Now I can at least speak and feel relaxed. Simplicity singing lessons that f work. :)"
