Paul is a very nice and understanding guy who only got to give our child an introductory lesson.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Paul makes learning fun and he’s very good at what he does!!!

She is so nice and friendly. My 5 year old daughter likes the lessons which is interesting and easy to catch up
Prema
Catherine is a kind, friendly and very patient while teaching me violin lessons. She walked me through Musical Grammar and taught me the details of "Violin instrument". She makes the lessons fun and challenging too which helps us to go to the next level of learning. She gets into the details as to how I'm playing and in the end its just that she wants me to get it right . She has always encouraged me and motivated me to learn. I didn;t know the "ABC's of music but she has taught me alot till date. I'm glad I found her as my music teacher.

Bobby has been a great teacher. I am in my 30s, trumpet beginner and with very limited time due to busy work schedule.Despite those limitations, Bobby has managed to keep every lesson interesting and challenging by mixing music theory, drills, and popular tunes fitted to my personal taste in music. I feel I am making steady progress.

"Dave is an exceptional teacher!

I am a beginner guitar player, Dave has been patient and kind at every lesson. This has been an inspiration and a great help for me to continue learning the guitar. I wanted to find a guitar teacher and not just a guitar player; his approach to teaching is outstanding. He has a love for music and a gift of being an excellent teacher. I always leave my lesson feeling good about my progress and inspired to continue learning to play the guitar. I recommend him for any player at any level; he he teaches good practice habits and is very knowledgeable of music theory and how to teach each person individually. It is rare to find someone knowledgeable in music and apply their knowledge to teaching. I was fortunate to find him!"
