First lesson. Too soon to tell. Not what I was expecting, but I had nothing on which to base any expectation. I will trust the process.

Confidence, projection, microphone usage - all work together to ensure that my students' musical performances are top-notch. I conduct two recitals per year and am working to expand our performance opportunities in the community. Many of my students already sing in premier choir ensembles and/or bands. I 'press' my students with various different vocalizes and pieces to ensure that when the opportunity to perform comes - they're ready.

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sou

All my three kids have enjoyed piano lessons with Marty. The oldest for more than two years! We are moving out of the country, so unfortunately we have to leave her; I wish we could take her with us! She is such a dedicated teacher. My kids have learned so much from her, not only playing the piano but also music theory. She is also flexible in scheduling, so we could always find a time that worked well for our busy family schedule. We will miss her!

The guitar is the most popular instrument to learn, and it can be used to play practically any kind of music in any style.

We all have a vast wellspring of creative energy within us, and my goal as a music teacher is to help you discover your gifts and make beautiful and deeply satisfying music. For this reason, my approach to teaching music is customized to the needs, tastes, and strengths of each student. You'll be able to choose material from popular and familiar music in whatever style attracts you.

You'll learn some basic exercises to develop core skills, gradually increasing technical challenges as your skills grow. Most importantly, you'll use scientifically-based learning techniques to train your brain and build "muscle memory." Soon you'll find yourself moving smoothly between chords without missing a beat, playing by ear, or writing your own songs. And woven into the practical lessons, you'll also learn basic elements of music theory.

I've just done my first session w/Sean. I'm signing on for a while as he seems very approachable, knowledgeable, and flexible. He also has a varied background w/singing/songwriting/guitar playing which will work for my new approach. He also works in several complimentary areas of music & likes Rumi & J. Mitchell as much as I do!

I teach beginner bluegrass fiddle using an approach designed to help students be able to learn both by ear and with sheet music, and to prepare to play with other musicians or attend bluegrass jams, as well as play with good technique and posture. I teach children age 6 and older, and adults, and welcome adult beginners. Students can choose to work from either the book Jack Tuttle's Bluegrass Fiddle Primer, or The American Fiddle Method Volume 1 by Brian Wicklund, if they can already read music. Students who do not yet know how to read music should start with Strictly Strings Violin Book 1 by Dillon, Kjelland, and O'Reilly.

About Margaret

I am a professional violin, fiddle, and viola instructor offering studio and online lessons for kids and adults including adult beginners. I have performed in orchestras, chamber music groups, bluegrass bands, and country bands. I have played violin since 1988 and taught since 2003. I hold a Bach

I just completed my fifth lesson out of my 10 lesson package with Margaret. She is wonderful! Always exactly on time, provides clear instruction and is very encouraging and patient with beginners. I'm an adult who is just now learning to read music, and she makes it way less scary! Definitely recommend taking lessons with her.

We got to know Dipankar through TakeLessons. He uses a digital chess board on the screen to play and teach chess. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is very prompt. He adjusts the lessons according to the learning speed of our son. Overall, very pleased with the lessons."

Sewing at Home: 3 Easy Sewing Projects for Children

The energy that my first time sewing students bring to the very first class is wonderful. They are so excited about the creative possibilities that learning to sew will bring them. Often this excitement is tempered by the fear of using a sewing machine. I start by encouraging them to do some easy sewing projects for children, so they can get comfortable with using a sewing machine. It is also a great way to learn some very basic sewing skills. The following projects are quite simple, quick and u …

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
