Excellent drum teacher!

Edgar is an amazing drummer and teacher. He's very patient and committed to make you a great drummer. He also takes the instruction from the "classroom" to the real world, he once took me to one of his shows and let me play a song with his band!!! That was amazing.

Mitchell C. Miami, FL

About Mitchell

With almost 20 years of music education experience, I have developed a super fun and effective teaching method that has proven to work. I am a kid at heart and love working with children. And as the oldest child of 6, I possess the necessary patience and enthusiasm for their learning development. In addition, I have worked with many adult students who initially thought it was "too late" for them to learn an instrument. They proved themselves wrong and were very successful with their new found talent. I have been a professional recording artist and live performer since the age of 15. I began teaching around the same time as a way of earning extra spending money. As the years went on, I fell more in love with teaching and formed a career out of it. So come join me on this musical ...

I have taken lessons from Mitchell and have grown leaps and bounds in my ability to not on become a better guitar player, but also learning the fundamentals so that I can play on my own. He is the ultimate professional and his own skills as a musician show up when he is teaching.

About Erik

I want to teach you how to express yourself through music. I've been inspired by music since I was young and have been involved in one way or another since I started piano lessons at age 3. I've been playing guitar for over fifteen years and written and recorded music for about eight. Whether you want to go into music seriously as I have, or just use music as a hobby and way to express yourself, I want to help you accomplish your goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each person is different and learns in a slightly different way. Having said that, there are certain essentials which must not be ignored. If you've never taken lessons before, we'll start with the fundamentals, how to hold the guitar properly, make chords, build up finger strength, properly tune the guitar, ...

Great Experience

You will learn so much with Erik! He has a solid grasp on a lot of music theory and knows how to break that down and explain it. The sessions are fun! I always look forward to the lesson, and they seem so short because the time is flying by. I definitely recommend Erik as a teacher.

Great teacher. I am learning at a very quick pace and Erik never stumbles when I ask him questions; and I sure do ask a lot of them and most of them being technical.

Wow!

I have to say, I am so happy on went out on a limb and started taking lessons with Samara. It has all been 100% worth it and more. I was attracted to her profile because of her ability to integrate private yoga instruction. As an aspiring actress that struggles with stage fright, I started noticing that my yoga practice helped me to be more present in life and my acting work and I wanted to find someone who could help me explore that. Samara is a perfect fit. Sometimes we just work a monologue from many angles that allow me to clear any blockages I had with the text or character before. Then, her awesome yoga exercises and sequences totally just chill me out and help me connect with what's going on in my mind-body. It's the perfect antidote to my self-doubt. After only a few lessons, I am finding that I trust myself in my auditions, and also in my life relationships, and I don't feel nervous about presenting what wants to emerge through me. I feel confident in the artist I am! Thanks Samara!!

Acceptance to my Dream School!

Samara was the key ingredient to helping me excel at a recent audition to Berklee College of Music. Being a songwriter with little performance experience left me uncertain of my ability to deliver my material, performance wise. I didn't realize how I was not conveying the material to it's fullest potential until Samara had me read the lyrics to my song out loud with her. Samara and I discussed the song, line by line and she coached me on how to deliver the lyrics to best communicate the ideas and emotions in the song to my audience. By reading the lyrics out loud with Samara, I was able to emotionally re-connect with the piece and deliver each line to the fullest potential.

With her extensive knowledge regarding performance art, Samara was able to correct everything from my posture to selecting which words could be sung in head voice vs. chest voice. Overall, Samara kept my originality in tact, she did not alter anything that was not genuine to my work. She helped me remove the elements of my performance that were distracting and enhanced the parts that allowed my song to shine. By practicing the piece with Samara's guidance and employing the techniques she recommended, I had a successful audition and received my acceptance letter a few weeks ago! Thanks again for everything Samara!

Zach has been giving guitar lessons to my eleven-year-old daughter in our home for the past few weeks and we have been so pleased with his instruction. He is punctual, professional, and best of all extremely patient. I would recommend Zach to anyone I know looking for music lessons, especially children, his patience and passion is a gift. Not to even mention how talented he is himself as a musician!!!

If you need a guitar teacher, I highly recommend Zack. He has been my teacher for 3 years and we never run out of lessons. Zack is an expert in music theory, critiquing songs, rhythm and melody. From a novice I have improved to a good player under his instruction. Give him a try I am sure you will be pleased.
