Singing, Music Performance
Charles, a self described spiritual singer whose repertoire offers songs of faith, healing, hope, love, peace, harmony, and enlightenment. He has a flair for infusing familiar and beloved inspirational and spiritual songs with a fresh, smooth, and distinctive sensibility entirely his own. His self-confidence is projected with warmth, charm, and genuine love for his music.
He captures the essence and spirit of those classic singers that have gone before him and established a tradition of great singing….Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, and Harry Belafonte, as well as the more contemporary sounds of Peabo Bryson, Wintley Phipps, Luther Vandross, Jeffrey Osborne.
He is in his element singing as a soloist for spiritual ceremonies, concerts, conferences, services and related events. His musical accomplishments extend to include performances at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City, The Jazz and Blues Company in Carmel, California, Houston Grand Opera, Opera Omaha, and the Houston Symphony as well as roles in musical theater with "Showboat" and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". Most recently, he performed for former first lady, Laura Bush and Peter Buffett, son of investment mogul, Warren Buffett.
As a singing teacher, Charles has taught voice both privately and within the public school sector for over 18 years. He received his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Houston System and has studied extensively with operatic tenor, Joseph Frank and well known Houston vocal coach, Tom Mckinney. He has also taken masterclasses with world reknowned teachers including Hollywood vocal coach, Seth Riggs.
Charles has served as a preliminary vocal judge for the popular "Gimme the Mike" singing talent tv show on NBC Houston, 97.9 The Box "Hatta's Idol", coached 2 American Idol Finalists, one Xfactor top 10 contestant season 1, and 2 semifinalists for the "Voice". He also served as a vocal coach for Beyonce's Music World Entertainment's Project Popstar, under the direction of Matthew Knowles.
As a life coach, I provide personal coaching for singers and musicians. This process involves helping a singer to first and foremost identify and understand why he/she sings, and what is the message they want to deliver when they walk on stage. In other words, what do they have to say?? From this viewpoint, they can create educational and professional goals based on their highest truth and life purpose. and address any issues that might be blocking them from achieving those goals. One of the major challenges that singers face are making career and life choices that will balance with their artistic or musical goals. In addition, it is very important to know your true gifts, passions, motivations and intentions. Moreover, having a realistic view and understanding of the recording business vs. the music playing business is essential to your overall business plan and success. You must also find the time and energy to pursue your art while making a stable and rewarding living. Lastly, if you are a creative type who is struggling with two common life dilemmas: the "starving artist" who is tired of panicking every time the rent is due, and the " well paid professional" desiring the time to devote to his or her art, then life coaching is for you

Bass Guitar, Guitar, English, Reading, Songwriting
Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. I'm Andrew. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 8 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stopped. The second I started learning I knew that that was what I wanted to do. Fast forward to now, and here I am loving every minute of it. I took lessons of my own as a kid, which helped shape me greatly. I then picked up bass at the age of 13.
Ive taught personalized lessons for over 4 1/2 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". Ive played South By South West, Westheimer Block Party, opened up for bands like the Misfits and Rage Against the Machine, shared the stage with bands like Minus the Bear and Echo and the Bunnymen, and been on tour and lived the whole life more often than not!
YOU can be an active musician. If you have the passion and desire. The first step though, is learning your instrument. Learning an instrument is something that stays with you for the rest of your life. It's an unfaltering companion that can benefit you in so many ways. I like to toss out the strict "teacher/student" regiment and create a laid back, fun, easy going atmosphere. I want to be buds and SHARE music with each other and introduce you into this world that I have grown to love so so much. There is nothing more rewarding. I promise. So let's get started!

You Feed Your Body and I’ll Feed Your Mind!
My name is Issaac and my philosophy is that learning should be fun and enjoyable. It is from that premise I tutor the following subjects: General Music, Music Theory, Composition/Songwriting, Piano/Keyboard, Music Production, Drawing/Cartooning, Theater, Public Speaking, Creative Writing, Career Development, College Counseling, Study Skills, Reading, Arithmetic, Microsoft Word, Biblical Studies and Religion.
I am originally from New York City and now I reside in Texas. I am a graduate of The High School of Art & Design in New York City specializing in Animation and Cartooning. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree as a Music major with a minor in Art from The City College of New York. I was awarded an honorary Master’s Degree of Sacred Music from Friends International Christian University in California for my accomplishments in Music Composition, teaching Piano/Keyboard and Music Theory and for Church Music rendered for weekly services, conferences, convocations, concerts and theatrical performances.
My first musical training began in elementary school on the soprano recorder, clarinet and keyboard (small organ). I studied classical piano for about 10 years. At the age of 17 I started playing regularly for church services and developed my gospel music style and improvisational skills. I have been composing music since I was 16 years old. I am grateful to all my music teachers and professors for developing my skills and broadening my musical awareness to the great diversity of musical expression. There may be styles that I may not like but I can appreciate the musicianship involved in the creation and performance of that genre of music. And it is from that thought of enlightenment that I will encourage my students to appreciate the different types of music and the cultural group that is communicating through it. For I agree with the statement that “music is the universal language.”
It was at City College as a Music major that I attended courses in: Music History, Music Theory, Musicianship, Harmony, Orchestration, Jazz History, Jazz Arranging, African Music, Voice, Chorus, Gospel Choir and Electronic Music. It is from that wealth of knowledge, training and understanding of music that a solid foundation was laid for me as a musician. I was able to grow and develop musically not just to benefit myself and those who heard my music but also for all the budding musicians who need someone to share that knowledge, wisdom and understanding unto them as well.
I have been an artist since kindergarten and my specialty is cartooning. I was blessed to have studied art at Art & Design where I was shown the various disciplines of art, i.e., sculpture, photography, graphic design, drawing, painting, illustration etc. In my junior and senior years I majored in animation and cartooning. At City College I continued my art studies in: Art History, African Art, Ancient Egyptian Art, Drawing, Painting and 2 & 3 Dimensional Designs. I love cartoons, its history and how it has evolved over the years. I will impart to my students the basic techniques to lay a foundation. Then after that I will assist them to discover their own unique artistic style of expression. It is from my well-rounded artistic educational experience that I can be an even more effective as a teacher and tutor of art in general and especially in cartooning.
I have had the privilege to develop my acting, script writing (plays, skits), improvisational acting, directing/producing and stage management skills for over ten years at the former Master Theater located in the Upper Westside section of Manhattan. I can assist you and/or your child/children with:
How to overcome stage fright and gain confidence on the stage?
How to bring depth to the character that you portray?
How to project your voice as well as make that connection with the audience?
How to manage a stage production, auditions, rehearsals etc.?
Parents/guardians I want you to feel at ease with allowing your child/children to be tutored by me. I love working with children. I have worked with children in private tutoring, music lessons, dance/drama/choir/band rehearsals at church, Sunday school classes, plays and skits for many years. Your input as the parent/guardian is invaluable to me and there will be times that we will need to communicate outside of the tutorial session on:
What progress has your child/children made?
What direction do I need to go in to help facilitate that?
How can I better serve you both in this capacity?
I do not think there are many things that are greater to me than to see a child that had struggled with a subject to finally realize that she or he can overcome it and master it. When I see the joy of accomplishment on his or her face to me that moment is priceless!
I have taught students of all ages, in private and classroom settings for over 25 years. If you are an older student do not be intimidated by the obstacles that you may encounter with a particular subject. Take a deep breath and relax. I am here to serve you. I am not looking for the perfect student. I am looking for the student who knows that she/he is struggling with a subject and needs some help. My prerequisite is that you the student have a desire to master whatever subject that you are presently challenged with. That is it! Also you may need some help with a subject that you have studied before but just need to brush up on. I will provide for you that one-on-one guidance to get you right back on track.
I like to have a structured yet informal approach to my sessions. I teach/tutor online and in the student’s home (or a mutual agreed upon location, i.e., school, community center, library etc.) I want you the student to experience an atmosphere that is calm yet constructive. I am not the infamous teacher who will whack you on the hand with a ruler if you make a mistake. In fact I will encourage you the student to tell me of the mistakes that you make. It is with this valuable information I will be better equipped to assist you in those points of contention that you have the most difficulty with in that particular subject.
Learning can be a fun and an enjoyable experience and I want to convey that philosophy in all of my lessons with all of my students. I will use interactive methods and materials as appropriate for the student’s age and the subject matter. I like for my lessons to involve as many senses as possible because it helps make the lesson to be more enjoyable. Plus this will also help the student to retain the knowledge in a more concrete tangible way. The learning process can be a memorable experience and should not ever be perceived as a boring dreaded form of punishment.
Finally, I ask all my parents/guardians and students this one thing that if you benefit in any way from my tutorial services please tell everyone.
All referrals are greatly appreciated!
