Jake was extremely friendly and enthusiastic during our lesson! He was very flexible and willing to teach depending on what I was interested in, and skilled enough to give immediate examples of how to apply those skills. I would highly recommend him for Ableton lessons!

After 30 years of guitar playing, I recently bought a uke. I can't believe how much fun it is and pretty easy to get started on. Give me 30 mins and I'll teach you 2 songs on your first lesson!

I start many children ukulele initially, whose hands and bodies are too small to begin guitar. We can build on their knowledge and musical journey keeping both instruments in mind (not necessary however) as they grow and mature into guitar. Best to "Ask a Question" via email to get our process started.

Fiona
My daughter has been under the wonderful care of Ms. Taylor for over 2 years now and she has learned and grown tremendously under her care. From not knowing how to read notes or any finger placements, to reading notes and switching things up ( different tempos) while playing the piano on her own.

Ms. Taylor pays attention to detail and is very easy going that makes it easy for my daughter to learn. She is very compassionate. She has also taught her breathing techniques along with voice training. She keeps her grounded and motivated. My daughter has a passion for music and is in the best possible hands. She is very flexible and accommodating!

Thank you so much for everything you do to help her flourish!!

We LOVE and APPRECIATE YOU!!

The Ukulele is such a fun instrument to play. It's a small instrument with a big sound. There is actually 4 different sizes you can choose from: Soprano, Concert, Tenor, and Baritone. The first 3 have the same string arrangement which is
G, C, E, A, and the Baritone is D, G, B, E, which is the same tuning as the first 4 strings on a guitar. Soprano is the smallest and the Baritone is the largest. If you want the true Hawaiian sound you need the Soprano. If you have really big hands or thick fingers you might want to go with the Concert or Tenor size so it will be easier to play.

They are very affordable instruments. The one I have is a Fender U Uke it was around 109.00. It's easier then guitar because you don't have to press down as hard on the strings.

Some of my favorite Ukulele players and bands that incorporate it are Jack Johnson, Brian May from Queen, Beach Boys, Elvis, Israel Iz, and many more.

I teach beginner to intermediate level for single and group lessons.

About Christian

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

I enjoyed learning from Christian today. I am 70 years old and did not feel out of place. He made me comfortable and he is very knowledgeable about how to go about teaching. He was very polite and patient with me and was able to go over things and explain professionally in a manner that did not insult my intelligence. He seems dedicated to teaching and does it very well .
I highly recommend this man to anyone that wants to learn how to play the Piano.
Wade J.
Christian has been top-notch in every way I could hope for. His communication prior to and after the lesson has been stellar, taking time to prep me then follow up with thorough, well written tips and details. (It's clear that he values the student's time as much as his own, and seeks to make the experience individualized and worthwhile for those he teaches.) The lesson itself was spot-on, being well balanced in both fun and degree of challenge. Feel very fortunate to have found him!
Cayden
Christian easily connects with my teenage son. He is professional while at the same time relaxed and easy-going. He stresses the importance of learning the basics but there is no high pressure. He strives to teach music that is interesting to my son and that challenges him. He does a great job of explaining things. We are happy we chose Christian as our teacher.

Do you want to sing & play your favorite songs?

Do you dream of writing your own songs?

I have been teaching music privately since 2009 and LOVE to help my students sing and play their favorite songs all while becoming a well rounded musician.

We will get to the joy of playing as quickly as possible and as we go along we will fill in the music fundamentals - reading and writing music, rhythm, technique, songwriting, music theory and more. It will be a fun and enriching experience.

I can't wait to connect with you - to support and challenge you and help you make your musical dreams come true.

Marye combines discipline and skill with kindness and patience. She is a gifted teacher who cares deeply about her students, helping us increase our skills and grow and heal and express ourselves as human beings. I recommend her highly.
Wendy
There are piano teachers and then there is Marye. Marye is a graduate of one of the best music schools in the country. She combines yoga, psychology, singing, and digestible music theory to every lesson. You will stretch, sing, and clap your way to greater piano proficiency. Taking piano lessons from Marye is good for your soul.
Sue
“After decades of thinking I'd lost my ability to sing, I learned how to finally sing utilizing my diaphragm while studying with Marye! She helped me locate my vocal range, which was huge, while making it feel so inclusive and safe! The joy of singing has returned to my life through Marye's skilled, sensitive and sweetly cultivated music space.”

Jeremy was great! My daughter’s first lesson went very well. Her first instructor joined the military, so we were left to select someone new. By God’s grace and a lot of help from Michael at TakeLessons, we landed on Jeremy’s profile. We couldn’t have gotten a better instructor the second time around! It’s like an extension of the first lessons! Jeremy is knowledgeable, kind, sincere, laid back, patient, and encouraging. What more could we ask for? As a mother, I really appreciate his communication with me via phone and email. If you are looking for a great instructor, you can do no better than Jeremy!

"Francesca is absolutely fantastic. I did a LOT of research when I was selecting a teacher. The teacher had to be multi-faceted (I wanted to explore singing, performing, and learning guitar/ukulele). The teacher had to have positive energy: there's nothing worse than a boring teacher. They had to be personable, communicate well and be NICE, but still be demanding when needed (to keep us challenged and excited and *learning*!). And finally, they had to have No Big Ego -- that is crucial to me, and very hard to find when you find someone that is very good at what they do.

Well, Francesca is ALL of those positive qualities. She knows her stuff, communicates very efficiently (and nicely!). She has a huge range of skills and talents -- from very professional skills/talents while still being able to do/show very down-to-earth personal performances (check out her videos of her performances -- you can see she is very skilled but also very personable -- a rare combination).

Another HUGE quality is her ability with kids. While I am an adult, it was very telling about what kind of *teacher* Francesca is by seeing her be successful with Kids. When I would arrive a bit early for my lessons, often she was just finishing up the last few minutes with a child. She is VERY good with children -- and that is a skill in itself. It's one thing to communicate well with adults; a whole other talent to be "fun" and inspirational to kids! And Francesca does that extremely well. The children learn and have fun doing it -- you can tell by the interactions that the kids are excited and are learning and doing well... of course that equals Fun (and keeps them motivated to learn more). If you have children that want to learn any musical instrument, I would highly recommend Francesca.

All in all, I am very happy I found her. I have learned SO much in just my first several lessons that I am very pleased with the VALUE of her teaching -- some teachers may be cheaper in cost, but if it takes 5 times longer to learn from a semi-good teacher, you end up spending more and getting less, and taking more time. The old saying applies here: "You get what you pay for."

If there were 6 stars available, Francesca would get that rating from me."

"Jesse is our first music teacher and my 9 year old son is really enjoying his Ukulele lessons. My favorite thing about Jesse is how often he compliments my son during his 30 minute lesson. Practicing has yet to be a struggle and my son looks forward to his lesson. Jesse is able to keep my son's attention and make his lesson fun for him. In 5 lessons my son has learned to read music and several basic songs. It is easy to welcome Jesse in our home for the lesson. We highly recomend him as a teacher. My son wants me to add that when Jesse rides his motorcycle to our house for the lesson it is also super cool!"
