They are not qualified to judge or "certify" anyone, much less teach how to train ANYONE the ART of how to teach private lessons. All they are selling is the very bureaucracy that clients ARE PAYING GREAT MONEY TO AVOID.

They try to sell the illusion of safety and credibility but that is like the wolf telling chickens that he's there to protect you from the other chickens.

Their OWN NUMBERS DON'T ADD UP:
They have teachers in 2800 cities and only 5% of the teachers who apply are qualified (desperate) enough to satisfy their high standards (cheap enough) That means that they have interview and passed judgment on over 56, 000 instructors in their six years in business.

But that is if they ONLY have one instructor in each city but if you actually look at their referrals lists in each city and cut through all of the redundant tactics to look like they have more (like posting ads of individual teachers AND Best Buy) then that number will multiply to over a million instructors.

No matter how much we are expected to be stupid enough to swallow this, there is no way for ANY of their claims to be credible enough to justify charging the prices of ACTUAL WORLD-CLASS INSTRUCTORS THAT WOULD NEVER HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS SCAM and then pass off inexperienced instructors, no matter how good the instructors attitude and intentions might be, as being at the same level just because of a "certification" that is no better than the printed "diploma"s on the back of silly guitar methods.

Teachers who get sucked into this scam do not realize that if they see their bio and picture posted on an ad by takelessons.com, when a customer calls the (877) number in the ads, a TELEMARKETER in San Diego will tell you that teacher does not have any openings but takelessons.com has another "certified" (cheap) instructor closer to where they live at Best Buy because take lessons has a deal with Best Buy to
sell their referrals to them. That means that each customer has to get through two corrupt 3rd parties to get to a teacher and when they do, they find out the real value of the bogus "certifications."

The best way to get takelessons to assist you in the way that they indicate is find out who takelessons refers and scratch them off of you list of choices. Their teachers cannot be a part of the system without being corrupted by it.

Their "guarantee if every bit as bogus because if you do not like the first teachers that they "carefully and skillfully matched you" (sold you) they do not want you to take your money somewhere else. You only get the guarantee AFTER you have exhausted all of THEIR referrals but you are the one that is going to exhausted.

They will keep resigning you to more teachers and start over and over until you catch on. You are not supposed to ask "Why would I want your 2nd, 3rd or 4th choice if I don't like your 1st choice?"

THIS IS A VERY OLD SCAM OF POLICIES THAT ONLY THE MOST DISHONEST ESTABLISHMENTS EMPLOY WHERE LESSONS ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A BAD REAL ESTATE DEAL FOR THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS

SAFETY TIP #1 NEVER NEVER NEVER ALLOW A SALESMAN, ONLINE OR LOCAL, TO SCHEDULE YOUR LESSON WITH A TEACHER OR ALLOW THEM TO "DO YOU A FAVOR" AND TAKE YOUR PAYMENT FOR A TEACHER AND IF THEY PULL THE, "YOU HAVE SCHEDULE SOMETHING RIGHT NOW BECAUSE OPENINGS ARE CLOSING FAST" TO GET YOU TO SIGN UP AND PAY RIGHT THEN BEFORE YOU EVEN TALK TO A TEACHER...PUNCH THEM! OF COURSE, IF THEY ARE ON THE PHONE IN SAN DIEGO KEEPING YOUR "SAFE" THEN THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO.

You are ALWAYS much better off talking to a teacher OUTSIDE of establishments that try to intrude because the teacher is going to be the one that you spend all of your time with every week and they are MUCH more likely to operate in YOUR best interest since they have the accountability. You are not going to be just another number where to a salesman, both teachers and students are just numbers and once they have you locked in, they're happy because they will be making most of the money that YOU are paying.

You would know you were being ripped of if you paid a travel agent, in advance, top dollar for a vacation package at the most expensive resort and then found out that they sent you to a cheap motel chain or if your gormet $200 meal for two came in a bag with golden arches but these scammers know how to fool over 100, 000 students nationwide so far because it is a lot harder to judge quality...THAT'S WHY YOU ARE HIRING THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE AND THEY PREY ON THAT.

The only thing these telemarketers are trying to make their customers "safe" from are quality instructors who really do know how to teach. Now who's going to protect the customers from takelessons.com

I like the concept of Takelessons Music Lessons. They are an online scheduling service that matches the type of music/instrument you want to learn with available teachers in your area. I do appreciate having the search engine, but they don't give you enough information about the teacher or their background. It's a good starting point that you'll need to research further.
