Stephen's a great instructor both from a technical and personable perspective.

He's got a cornucopia of musical knowledge that's evident from how speaks to how he teaches. If you like any film score, chances are he knows how to play it.

Speaking as a beginner, I can say he's been very patient and knows a bunch of exercises and books to learn everything thing from theory to practical pieces to finger exercises.

He provides constructive guidance on what you're doing wrong, and I'm happy to see myself improve under his tutorage. (oh and if you're a sci-fi fan, you'll have a lot in common with him)

Steve is an excellent teacher! I always look forward to my classes. I am a student in high school, and he fully understands my need to balance my school work with piano, and he makes sure that I am able to comfortably commit to both aspects of my life. Steve makes sure that I stay on task and that I am progressing with my piano skills all while making the lessons fun and enjoyable.

First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together.

You can not directly get someone to see that they can be better or do better without a bit of influence.
Ms. P has been a positive influencer to my daughter. She taught techniques and gave her a written action plan for practice. I looked for someone my daughter could look up to and see herself in. She’s played drums and piano in school when she was younger and now wants to focus on being a vocalist. Ms. P offers lessons in singing and playing instruments. I figure she would be a perfect example of what you can do with your talents. My daughter words are below:

“Working with Mrs.P was a great experience. i didn’t realize how much breathing comes into play while singing. She showed me how to elongate my voice and sing from my chest instead of my throat. She’s very funny and kind and makes learning a comfortable experience.”

I'm thankful for Takelessons online options and finding Ms. P for my daughter's vocalist growth.

Priscilla has such a calming and warm presence! I love how she opened the lesson with meditation and stretching exercises.

And she jumped right into teaching me the song I wanted to learn how to play. I’m really going to enjoy taking more lessons with her. 😊

If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

I've been a successful commercial photographer, author, educator and film producer since 1980. I understand that students learn in different ways and I strive to accommodate these differences.

I've owned and operated large commercial studios in Burbank, CA, where I did business with entertainment industry leaders: Warner Bros, Universal, Paramount and Disney. Disney especially punched my dance card for over 20 years. We love the mouse at our house. Currently I work exclusively as a location photographer and film producer.

Throughout I’ve taught at various private and public educational institutions, wrote my first book in 2009 and am currently writing my second. I’ve mentored many young photographers over the years and am thrilled for their successes.

Thanks for reading.
