Kenya C.

Wyoming, RI

About Kenya

I started playing music in the fourth grade. My first instrument was the cello. In fifth grade I changed my instrument to the violin and found that it was definately something I wanted to persue. A year later I started on the piano, and unlike the violin, I found that it was easier to learn it on my own. Because of that, my knowledge on the piano has been mostly self taught. I have been playing both instruments going on 16 years, and even though I did play other instruments, nothing took center stage like the piano and violin. Although I have never played in the Boston Philharmonic or London Symphony Orchestra's, nor have written or composed any CD's, doesn't mean I don't have a passion for what I do. To me, music isn't just about playing in a large orchestra or being ...

Although, I've never met Kenya personally, my usually shy daughter has been completely comfortable around her. I a few short lessons she's already learned sooooo much. My daughter and I both look forward to more lessons from her in the very near future. Thanks TakeLessons and THANK YOU KENYA!

I wish I could have continued my lessons. Hopefully I'll be able to continue this in the future, but wanted to say that Kenya is a very kind and patient teacher, and I hope to be able to take lessons from her again when the time comes. I really liked her approach to teaching an old dog like myself.

Kenya is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and has a good read on my 8 and 5 yr olds so as to not push too much but is by no means a push over. I like her soft spoken firm style.

About Kathleen

I began playing flute as a child and have continued with it into adulthood.

I also like to incorporate a little theory in the mix so student understands what they are reading. Most of all, I want the student to feel relaxed and have ...

Guitar · In studio
I am in my 60's and all my life I've wanted to play guitar. Lou has made that dream come true for me. It's been only a year of taking lessons with Lou and I am already playing many of my favorite songs. I remember at the beginning when I doubted if I would ever really play a song and Lou kept telling me "you will be playing sooner that you think". Then it all started coming together and I now play with my friends and I can't express how thankful I am for Lou's teaching style which has allowed me to learn chords, rhythm patterns, songs and even finger picking. It don't get any better than this.

Guitar · In studio
My son and I have been taking guitar lessons from Lou for two years now and at the beginning we didn't know anything about playing guitar. Now, we know over two dozen of our favorite songs, chords, rhythm patterns and he's presently teaching us about finger picking. He has not only made my son and I learn how to play guitar but has given me another opportunity to enjoy doing something with my son and all of this adds up to an outstanding teaching job by Lou.

Guitar · In studio
I started taking guitar lessons at the age of 13 from Lou. When I first began my lessons I never imagined I'd be able to play like I can now. Now I am 16 and completed three years of lessons and I enjoyed all 3 years. Each year I found I progressed more and more and that's all thanks to Lou's teaching style. He is an amazing instructor. My favorite artist is Taylor Swift. He taught me how to play so many of her songs I lost count. I feel I am ready to advance in music theory and playing if I want to continue my guitar studies in college. I highly recommend him.
