I'm into my second month of weekly guitar lessons with Brett and can't believe how well I am playing already!! I've had some basic guitar lessons in the past but still very much a beginner. Brett knew precisely where to start and what I needed next to advance my playing, and broke it down into attainable steps. So far I've learned a good handful of strum patterns; I can finally play two songs pretty well and sing along; and I am in the rudimentary stage of learning to finger pick. Really love the fact that beautiful sounds are coming from my instrument! Highly recommend if you're ready to make the commitment to becoming a capable player.

What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!

The home studio is becoming a musicians must. As a professional composer I've learned how to be 100% self sufficient. I'll show you how to produce a great recording! You must know the ins and outs of the basics. I've been an audio engineer for 15+ years and I'll show you how to achieve great sound right away. Compression, EQ, panning, etc.

I specialize in using Ableton Live's recording software, but can work with any DAW.

Kyle is a great listener and helps me put together lots of advanced concepts that may be kicking around my head but I don't have names for. He seems genuinely concerned for his students. He is helping me organize, produce, mix and master an album that I've had written for a while. Thanks Kyle!

"When my Dad Lou turned 100 years old, and since he always liked to sing, we contacted Randy to make a record for the occasion.
My dad had a good voice, but with Randy at the piano (and adding an orchestra to the mix!!) my dad could easily have given Frank Sinatra a run for his money!!
Randy was gracious, considerate and attentive to Lou’s every thought and his every tone.
Lou is almost 102 now, and is quickly changing. I keep the record in my car and play it often, remembering and cherishing and tearing up for the good times it brings to mind."

"Seraj has over 25 years of recording and Sound Engineering experience and training. But here’s the thing; he makes all that skill...SIMPLE to understand. It is very rare, this day and age, to find instructors who know their craft so well, that they can explain it in easy-to-understand terms. He doesn’t just do something to the recording; he explains to you WHY and how he did it. Seraj is patient, hardworking, and always building new skills and knowledge of his own art form. That is not as common as it used to be. I highly recommend him."

"This spring semester started off very stressful, but after getting James to tutor me for my music business class it have been a big relief. My grades started going back up and the biggest accomplishment of them all is that I passed my class with a B+. “Thank god out of all the teachers on takelessons.com I chose him.”

James is very caring and understanding and most definitely knows his stuff when it comes to Music business. He really cares about his student’s and really wants to see them win , even when he’s not on the clock with you at the moment he randomly sends you helpful tips and interesting reading files that can help you along the way to become a success artist. I will most definitely keep him around while I'm on my Musical Journey ! and If I were you I would too."

"My son learned how to effectively play in a band

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Tim for over a year now. I have been very pleased with the progress my son is making. Tim makes my son feel very comfortable, and is more than willing to work with him in any area where he shows an interest. Tim is personable and patient.

Tim is quite flexible with time. He has kindly worked around our schedule whenever necessary. His fees are quite reasonable, and he always errs in our favor in regard to time.

Tim is a great guitar player himself with a true love for the instrument, which shows in his teaching. He was invaluable in helping us pick a reasonably priced, yet quality guitar for our son.

He has taught our son any song my son hears on the radio note for note a real gem.We are quite pleased with Tim's teaching, and highly recommend him."
