Michelle has been working with my daughter weekly since early August. We couldn't be happier! Since her first lesson, Michelle has made my 10 year old feel comfortable and confident. Our daughter has been inspired by her lessons and literally doesn't stop practicing singing and keyboard. We have already recommended Michelle to other parents in our community.Oct 10, 2017Verified
Michelle Maves, the owner of Take Note, is an amazing teacher. My children love their lessons and love music because of her passion for teaching and her enthusiasm for her students. She is able to customize her lessons for each individual child - she even tailors the music so the student stays engaged. My two children are very different and you can see the different ways Michelle can tailor the lesson. Having played piano myself, I recall my own days of piano lessons. I can tell that their experience with Michelle is distinctly great. They have fun and are enthusiastic about the lessons. They also look forward to recitals. I unreservedly recommend Michelle. Cheers!Apr 7, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Please contact us for pricing details. Prices depend on location, lesson length, and several other factors.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Most parents first contact us with general questions about music lessons. We travel to our students, so it’s important that we discuss the instrument the student wants to learn, where the student lives, and the student’s schedule. We also like to find out more about the student’s learning style and any prior music lesson experiences to make a great match with one of our excellent instructors. From there, we check with our teachers about availability in the student’s area. We then send the parent more information about an instructor who we think will be a good match. We encourage students to have a lesson with the teacher. We don’t require semester commitments, so there is no obligation (beyond paying for the session). Students then handle scheduling and makeups directly with the instructor. Most students work with us long-term as they discover learning music is fun when a great teacher is there to guide them in the process.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have studied music for my entire life. I have years of training in voice, piano, and acting and have been teaching for over a decade. I majored in musical theatre in college and have performed all over the country. I also developed my teaching skills with many top companies in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago before starting my own business.
