I have sang for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college.
I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital; Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; Xavier University of Louisiana Student Productions - Treemonisha (2004), Purlie (2005); Xavier University University Chorus; 2004-2009; Xavier Concert Choir; 2004-2009; Vocalist with Recording Artist: Josh Jones Nu Horizon, New Orleans, Louisiana; Vocalist with Recording Artist: Bishop Alvin Davis & Company, Baldwin, LA; Greater St. Stephan Gospel Choir and Praise Team; Background Studio Vocalist for Ebony Lockett (2009), Community of Faith Praise Team, 2012-2013
Currently, I sing at many venues and with various groups throughout Houston area. In addition to all of this, I also perform a great deal of gospel music on the praise team at the Community of Faith.

I've loved music since I was able to walk. When I was 5 or 6, I would listen to my mother's stereo system, with Jim Croce playing on the 8-Track tape deck.....(ok, so I'm aging myself a little bit). I would lay on the floor in between the speakers which were turned inward toward my ears. I could lay there for hours, tapping my toes to "Bad Bad Leroy Brown", "Roller Derby Queen", "You Don't Mess Around with Jim", and many others. I would also listen to the Beatles, Seargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and "Revolution" and be completely taken away. I didn't realize it then, but what captivated me were the songs that were written to tell stories, and the music that brought the stories to life. As I grew into my early teens, I got into Kiss, Alice Cooper, Rush, Ted Nugent, and Jimi Hendrix. (His version of "All Along the Watch Tower" was much better than Bob Dylan's original version)
During my high school years I got more into Hard Rock and Heavy Metal, because of it's energy, and decided to start learning how to play the bass guitar. As the '80s music scene was going down hill with music from Boy George and Pet Shop Boys, along with so many LA "Hair Bands", I turned off the radio. I would spend hours in record stores picking out albums from my favorites, and would go see them in concert when I could. But when I saw Sammy Hagar during his "Three Lock Box" tour, and Ted Nugent promoting his "Wango Tango" album, I realized that I wanted to be a rock star. I wanted to play guitar with such heart and soul, and write songs that inspired and excited audiences! So I bought my first guitar for $300 at a pawn shop, which was a Gibson Sonex - 180.
After playing bass guitar for the high school jazz band for a couple of years, I wanted to learn more about song writing. I was 17 when I started taking lessons. What I noticed most of all is that my instructors were trying to teach me how to play songs on the guitar, not HOW to play the guitar. I then decided the only way to learn to play the guitar is to figure out the "why" of chords, and scales, and why certain tones when payed together instill a certain emotion when heard. This way, when someone asked if I could play guitar, I could honestly say, "Yes". I would pick out certain songs to learn as a study reference, and then figure out different ways of playing them. I only wanted to play the guitar so that I could play my own creations, or improvise with a band.
In my college years, I lived in Switzerland, studying the hotel business. During my off days, I would take my guitar out into the town, and play for extra money. It was a great experience, and a way to meet a lot of different people from around the world!
Ok...enough of the biography. When I got back to the states, I decided the hotel business was not for me, and went in search of my calling. I started going to the community college, and discovered I wanted to become a music teacher! I was working full time in sales, selling telephone systems to businesses, and going to school at night. I learned the art of public speaking, and giving presentations. I gained teaching experience through giving sales training seminars, and through teaching martial arts. (I was a 2nd degree Black Belt of Aikido at the time)
As the years past, I joined the contemporary praise and worship band at my church, which allowed me to play in a band in front of an audience. I was also recruited into a local band called Covenant, formed by a couple of people from my church. Over 10 years, we toured and we recorded 2 Cd's and a live video concert!
I was still in the career of Telecommunications sales, but then the bottom dropped out of the economy, and I got layed off for the 3rd time in 2 years. So, I decided to change my career direction. I opened up my teaching practice full time, and developed a special curriculum that can be tailored to fit the individual students' personal goals, and learning ability! I've been teaching for over 16 years now, and specifically music for almost 5 years. I've taught beginners, intermediates, and advanced students from the ages of 7 to 65. My favorite students are the ones that have the desire to play. and dedication to practice.

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!

This provides me with firsthand experience in important areas like playing for a crowd and recording my own material. All of this is vital to learning how to be a well-rounded musician, which is what you will learn from me.
When you start by playing music you love, you will end up loving to play music.
