About Charles
I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Pr
eparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just my own guitar and amp they need their own equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, flamenco, rock, heavy metal guitar. I have also developed new classical guitar techniques that I call the "trem" stroke and the "harpeggio"

About Alison BinShing
Born in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Bin Shin (Alison) began playing cello at the age of 8. She received a Bachelor of Music from the Shanghai Conservatory of Music in 2002 and a Master of Music from the Longy School of Music of Bard College in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 2013.

Ms. Alison has held several orchestral positions, including with the Malaysia National Symphony Orchestra, the Radio Television Malaysia Orchestra, The Youth Orchestra of Shanghai, Boston Chamber Symphony, the Metrowest Symphony Orchestra, Boston Callioppe Orchestra, and The Greater Boston Asian- American Symphony Orchestra. She has extensive international performing experience, including an engagement with the National Symphony of Malaysia at the Asian Orchestra Festival held in Japan in 2004 as part of a tour of China, Japan, Korea and Thailand. As a member of the
Radio Television Orchestra in Malaysia, she performed on several Malaysian television shows including Astro and Malaysian Idol. These experiences helped shape Ms. Alisonas an artist and inspired her to nurture the next generation of musicians.

In addition to her appreciable experience as a performance artist, Ms. Alison's commitment to mentor future generations of cellists motivated her to tutor at the Shanghai ABRSM Music School, the Shanghai American International School, Edvox Strings Music School in Singapore, and the Bentley Music Academy in Malaysia. She has instructed a cello section, taught at a private cello studio and instructed orchestral repertoire classes. These experiences have helped her to further develop her expertise in music education and engagement as a qualified music teacher in greater Boston. In addition to employing a traditional teaching style, her dedication to cello and teaching inspired her to become certified as a Suzuki method trained instructor in 2011. Ms. Alison enjoys instilling the same passion she has for music in her students and hopes to encourage her students to develop their own musical style.

In 2010, before coming to the United States to study for her Master in Music, Ms. Alison began her own quintet, The Trout Quintet, which performed classical music in Kuala Lumpur. In addition to Ms. Alison's extensive classical string music repertoire, she often experiments with different musical styles such as Bossa Nova and Lieder, performing as a guest with several groups in the Boston area. Her creativity and drive have helped her to become an accomplished performance artist and a well-respect music teacher.

Starting in September, Ms. Alison will be performing with the Waltham Philharmonic and the New Philharmonic Orchestra etc. In addition, she will be leading the cello section at the Josiah Quincy School using the groundbreaking El Sistema system, pioneered in Venezuela by Dr. Jose Antonio Abreu.

I've had two lessons so far and Alison seems like a really wonderful teacher. She is very attentive to detail and good at giving advice and feedback. I haven't taken music lessons in a long time, and I've never played a string instrument before, but already with Alison's expert instruction, I feel like I'm really learning. I highly recommend her!

It was truly a pleasure meeting Concetta for my first ever violin lesson. It is difficult to learn anything at the age 40, specially a musical instrument, but she made it comfortable and easy to understand. She's extremely patient a key quality when teaching a subject such a music to anyone. I would say, give her teaching style a try and you won't regret it. Very knowledgeable indeed.

Very patient and beyond knowledgeable! I haven't done anything with TakeLessons before and my online class was hosted via skype so it was easy to get connected and learn at my own pace. I like that my lessons will be tailored to my style and my level of musical understanding. She has excellent follow-up for after the lessons as well. I'm excited to be a student again :)

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument.

In my opinion, having been an educator in the Isaac School District for many years, Mr. Quintana exhibits excellent teaching techniques and strategies to enable the learner to be successful. He is professional, prepared, courteous, and prompt. For the past 6 years, Mr.Quintana has been my cello instructor. The environment that he creates as an educator provides an excellent foundation for continued learning. Mr. Quintana's knowledge of string instruments and piano are superb.

Victor is a great instructor and a great person. He is wonderful with my young son, who was an absolute beginner when he started lesson with Victor at age 8. My son has a learning disability that makes it harder for him to read music and process instructions. Victor worked with all of that with patience and respect. Now my son can play beautiful songs and perform in front of others. I believe that learning music has also helped my son become better at reading, math, and thinking! Most of all, he feels successful about his guitar skills, which adds to his confidence. I cannot thank Victor enough!
