Takelessons Bridges the Gap

Success in learning often depends on finding the right teacher; someone that not only has expertise in the subject, but also knows how to inspire. The teaching style that works for one student may not work for another. As a parent or student, how do you find the right match? As a teacher, how do you find new students that fit your style? TakeLessons bridges this gap.

For Students...

The team at TakeLessons has been connecting students with teachers since 2006. We know everyone learns differently, so our marketplace brings together a diverse community of teachers from different backgrounds and with different teaching styles.


TakeLessons started in music, but we're so much more now. Tap into our network to find amazing tutors, dance instructors, acting coaches and, of course, music teachers. TakeLessons makes learning anything convenient, affordable, effective, and fun for all ages.

"Theodore teaches my 11-year-old son guitar. Since day one he seemed to instinctively know how to bring out the best in him... he lights up when he hears, from Theodore, that he has done well. My son has learned more in 4 weeks with Theodore than he did in 2 months with his previous teachers!"

"TakeLessons has exceeded my initial expectations, not only the [platform], but the expectations I held for myself. Love TakeLessons. Love my teacher. Love his teaching method which is relatively laid back on the surface, but the dude's mind is expansive! He hits you curve balls and knows how to relate to his students... after each session I feel like I can do this and [Thomas] wants to see me excel and that in and of itself is not only motivational but inspiring."
