Takenya Battle is America's #1 Music Education Expert. Music forever changed her world the moment she took her first piano lesson in the 4th grade. By the time Takenya attended college at Florida A&M University on a full academic scholarship, she had already given numerous school performances in various choirs, sung her way to state level competitions and played her way through several churches and bands. While there in Tallahassee, FL, Takenya was afforded a stellar education in drumming, woodwinds, and strings even though classical piano and classical voice were her primary instruments of study. College semesters often entailed singing and performing in Italian, French, and German. Negro spirituals and English songs were also required learning. The semester wasn't complete without accompanying someone and performing a piece by Chopin, Haydn, Beethoven, or Rachmaninoff.
After graduating cum laude, Takenya began her 14 year tenure as a Dallas music educator. There she taught well over 11,000 students to love and appreciate music in varied forms. Students wonderfully sang in Latin, French, and German, created their own instruments from scratch, and grew to be able to aurally identify music over 300 years old with great ease and finesse. While teaching in Dallas, "Protect the Earth", a song Takenya wrote for Earth Day, was sung by over 7 combined school choirs. She maintains her State Board of Education certificate as an all level music instructor.
Takenya continues to further her own education while still teaching others. A Master Certificate in Music Production and Technology is expected to be earned by her from Berklee College of Music Online in the summer of 2017. During her studies, Takenya has written and produced music for high profile podcasts and business owners.
America's #1 Music Education Expert is also an Active Duty Reservist with specialized training to serve in a hospital environment- even when no formal hospital may exist. Takenya Battle is the mother of three children who came through her and three children who came to her. Her husband, James Battle, is a fervent supporter of his wife.

Her vocal skills are outstanding. Not only does she have a great voice, but she also has a great ear for music, which is important for harmony and blending. She definitely works and plays well with others!

Kenya is amaaaaazing! She has a way with kids! She's funny, sweet and never skips a beat. I love how she keeps my daughter engaged even she gets distracted. Her lessons are always fun and she inspires my daughter more with every lesson. I can't say enough good things about her! Lucky to have found the best teacher around!
