My History of Piano:
I have been teaching piano for 10 years. My 30 years of training is mostly through private lessons and passed down generational methods taught through my mentor, Joann Maybe.

My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.

With my method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning dance and find one's "True Inner Dancer."

Really patient and encouraging! I'm a beginner when it comes to dance / choreo but she was still very supportive and positive. You'll have a lot of fun taking a lesson with her!

Ferlyn has excellent skills in teaching dance. My daughter has improved her dance techniques in 3 classes. We highly recommend her to everyone that needs dance instructor.
Dominique N.
Given all of the positive reviews, I am refraining from giving Ferlyn only one star. I am sure she is relatively competent as a teacher. The unfortunate aspect for which she is receiving such a poor review is a significant lack of professionalism.
I arranged piano lessons with Ferlyn for my mother.
Her first lesson (for which I was present) was fine.
I then found out that at their second lesson, Ferlyn showed up very sick. This was quite concerning, especially given my mother’s age. Ferlyn definitely should have canceled that second lesson and not showed up so sick.
Then, only two hours (!) before my mother’s scheduled third lesson, I receive a text message from Ferlyn stating the following:
“Hi Dominique, wanted to let you and your mom that piano lessons will be cancelled today because it is my Birthday! I will see her next week. :)”
This was incredible. This was a cancellation only two hours prior, not due to some emergency or even due to her illness which should have caused a cancelation the week before! This was because it was her birthday. Something that would have been understandable, were she to have let us know well in advance. I am sure she knew in advance when her birthday is.
This does not reflect on TakeLessons, as I have had great experiences with other teachers.
But this degree of inconsiderateness, first with regard to the illness and then with regard to the manner of cancellation, is appalling.

I have taught, tutored and teach Spanish to USA Veterans and students struggling around campus for years. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I grew up hearing it and studied it in high school and at the college level. I know what it is like to be a student in a Spanish class as well as using it in real life application. I also have 2 minors in Spanish Language and Latino/a and Latin American Studies (Formerly known as CBS: Chicano-Boricua Studies) which give me the perfect mix of language and culture.

I am very patient and work on your level. I have years of academic and practical usage/experience with the language. I use that experience to put myself in your shoes and give tips and cultural things that may help you better understand your new language. Also, my knowledge of Psychology helps us hack learning in a time-efficient way. No question is ever a dumb question and we will spend as much time on a topic as needed.

I believe that learning music is one of the greatest gifts that people can obtain and achieve in life, because if builds self-confidence, provide happiness to ourselves, and appreciate different cultures. Through singing, it has the power to touch the empathy of people through communication of words as singers deliver these texts within their sounding voice.

Having the talents in music is not predetermined whether you have them or you don’t, but I firmly believed that musical talent is a skill that can be learned and enriched. Through hard work and practice, I do agree that everyone can achieve these skills and become an exceptional musician. It is in my environment as a voice instructor to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability by learning wide variety of songs while maintaining healthy vocal production throughout their instructions.

Through my previous mentors, I had received voice instructions with intense and thorough understanding of ...

About Lester

Music is one of the greatest gifts. It builds self-confidence, allows for various emotional experiences and provides an understanding of different cultues. Our voice is a powerful musical instrument.

Projection and tone of your voice is your calling card, sometimes before the meaning of the words are understood. Sometimes, your voice precedes your appearance or is heard over the phone, on speaker monitor or over the airwaves.

How do you wish it to sound? As we know, it does not sound the way we hear it with our ears. Record your voice and listen to the recording. As you may be aware, you may not recognize it as you know it. The art of projection and intonation - nasal tone or the covered voice or being brash in its tonality. Too high, too low, monotonous, lethargic or over-modulated....

I will help you to get to your ideal voice. The voice that stops the listener in their tracks and makes them hear what you have to say. More importantly, the impression of you as an individual personality is formed by the impression your voice leaves and at first, makes.

If you want to do voice over work, acting, public speaking, change the way you are perceived, build ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
