About Me

Born and raised in the wine country of Northern California I have been a student of music since the age of 4. Beginning on violin, then exploring a variety of instruments from piano to drums, at age 13 I finally discovered the guitar (my principal instrument and what I would later go on to study at the prestigious Berklee College of Music).

My teachers have ranged from the local music shop teachers, prestigious academics, to well known performers. I grew up loving music, and was lucky enough to have the opportunity to receive a first class education from a very prestigious music school. While attending Berklee College of Music in Boston I studied along side the brightest of young musicians from all over the world, and studied under some of the highest caliber teachers in their respected fields.

Now I share my wealth of knowledge and expertise on the subject of music with my students. I was glad to have such a wonderful opportunity to study at such a great school, and am happy to share it with eager ears and minds.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are very laid back and casual. The curriculum is generally suited to each student's wants and needs.

I teach song-writing, academics, technique, composition, and am comfortable in a variety of learning styles - audio, visual, muscle memory, etc. (though it is always a combination of all of these).

I am very well educated in all the traditional basics of contemporary, pop, jazz, and classical. I have also spent a lot of time working with obscure approaches to the instrument. I promise with a little practice, patience, and effort; you'll see clear results within weeks.

First I check in with my student and listen to hear if there are any specific tough spots he/she had since the last lesson, and what the student would like to go over this week.

When starting with beginners, it's always: What would you like to learn? And what do you know?

Lessons that are intended to continue over a longer period of time will usually involve more developmental work somewhat similar to the curriculum listed below.

Students looking for minimal commitment and play-a-longs are also equally welcome. You are the client and I'm here to provide a service for you.

About Me

I have worked with "regular-education" students, with autistic students [while working with Dr. Nyla Lamm (Professor of Education at Columbia University)] , and with mentally disturbed students. These students are ALL entitled to an education (just like you and I were). I love teaching ALL students. No exceptions!
I have a Masters in TESOL from Fordham University, a New York State [TESOL] Certification, and have experience teaching children and adults. I am very enthusiastic about working with people [because I love it!]. As my resume indicates, I have a degree in English, a Masters in TESOL, and a wide ranging knowledge of Spanish and History (my minors). Additionally, I have taught English as a Second Language to individuals and groups.
Also, I worked with La Guardia Community College as an ESL Professor. This is in additions to the 10 years of Teaching English to various multicultural groups. Because I know both languages, English and Spanish, well; have strong communication skills; and love interacting with people; I feel especially qualified to be part of your staff. I have tutored English to pupils at a correctional facility (OATKA), to college students, migrant workers, blue-collar workers, and professionals as medical doctors. Additionally, I have written standard, collegiate English for the English Club at SUNY Geneseo.
In addition, I have broadened my communication skills by going through Mediation Training, working with people from different cultures, becoming a Notary Public, gotten certified as a Mediator by the Center for Dispute Settlement in Rochester, NY, and going to numerous conferences dealing with Classroom Management, Learning Strategies, Learning Languages and Children Literature (among others).
I would be very pleased to become part of your staff. I am available for an interview at any time on a two days notice.

Sincerely,

PROF. SOLANGE M.
