Local Lessons & Private Teachers

Find the perfect local teacher near you

Benefits of Local Lessons

  • Convenience

    (In-Home)

    Manage your time more effectively by cutting out the commute.

  • Familiar Environment for Kids

    (In-Home)

    Young kids may be a bit nervous in a new setting. Taking lessons at home is comfortable and familiar.

  • Focus

    (Teacher Location)

    It's easy to get distracted at home. Meeting at your teacher's location often cuts back on distractions so you can focus on learning.

  • Teaching Tools

    (Teacher Location)

    Depending on what you're learning, the teacher's location may have access to better resources that wouldn't be available in your home.

How Local Lessons Work

  • Search & Book Online

    Search for a teacher in your ZIP code and browse profiles until you find the right match.

  • Select Location

    You can select a teacher for in-home lessons or travel to their location - typically a studio or library.

  • Connect

    You'll have the opportunity to speak with your instructor before your first lesson.

A GREAT MUSIC TEACHER!
My daughter wants to learn to play an electric guitar. Then, we met Steven through Take Lessons. We initially planned on getting the guitar lesson first but Steven introduced her playing the piano as well. He is very knowledgeable in teaching how to play an instrument and does so in a way so that the child can understand. Thanks a lot Steven!

Steve is a rare find - an accomplished musician, a great teacher, and a genuinely nice guy. My 10 year old and I have been taking lessons with him for the past year, and our progress/improvement has been significant and noticeable. Particularly with my son, Steve is patient, supportive, and very encouraging, and he teaches at just the right level. He always makes sure that we cover music theory along with learning our favorite songs in order to get the most out of our training. My enjoyment of piano has increased significantly since starting lessons with Steve, and each time we leave a lesson he says: "Have fun with it!" I highly recommend Steve as a teacher.

Initially impressed with Charles video displaying his prowess with the guitar. Even further impressed with his patience with my over eager 9 yr. Old on her first lesson. And he is a local talent!

Aaron is a good instructor. Luckily I practiced quite a bit before hands to be able to catch up with the speed. The video audio quality are not that great though.

Since the first day, I've seen such an improvement in technique and confidence. She is very encouraging and supportive. I never felt hurried or forced. It has been a delight to be on this journey with Majorie.

I just started taking lessons with Marjorie and I've seen a difference already in the way I approach singing. She is good at teaching technique and it works! The bonus is all the fun you'll have while learning. Needless to say, I signed up for more lessons.
