Had my first lesson. Great teacher, very informative on the subject, and very easy to talk with. Left the lesson feeling I learned more than before the lesson. Now I'm even more excited to work with my camera he helped me understand more. Definitely would recommend him as a teacher. If I decide to take another lesson, I will request him as my teacher. Thanks for the lesson.

I have been teaching guitar since 2009. I teach in a therapeutic style, using my music therapy training to be as observant, adaptive and flexible as I need to be for the student's benefit. I teach at the student's pace and to their interests, while building their musicality, music theory, and performance skills. I often incorporate singing into lessons as well. 1-2 times a year, we work towards building a repertoire of 1-4 pieces (depending on the student) to play at a local assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility.

About Laura

We're gonna HAVE FUN! Your lessons will be customized to your needs and what you want to do with your ability to play guitar. I can teach you either electric or acoustic guitar. I can prepare you for any genre as I include fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios) in your practice. I use Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method books for reference and/or lesson work. I can help you learn how to play with a pick, how to finger-pick, how to sing and play simultaneously, and even how to sightread.

These Psychology lessons are mostly focused on how to communicate, build confidence, and reduce anxiety.
Many of the principles taught will focus on how to engage in healthy conversations and read social cues.
Psychology will back up principles taught.
Elementary and middle school psychology focuses on developmental stages of school- aged children, and what their patterns of behavior could indicate. Please send specific goals to the instructor before signing up for this course to make sure this is the right fit for you.
*Disclaimer*
Lessons and insight are based on studies conducted and reported, but please realize that there are many variables that contribute to a person’s psyche, and if conclusions of student’s goals are not reached, psychologist, counseling, or even psychiatric services are recommended.

I was a little hesitant in my first class as I am trying to learn it at older age but Panagiota was very friendly and made sure that the environment is comfortable for both of us. I had the first lesson and I would say it was good but too early to conclude the overall experience. I would prefer to provide meaningful feedback at the end of my sessions so that it will be informative and helpful for others. Thanks

She was very thorough in explaining the basics in a very short amount of time. We focused a lot on technique and what to work on until the next lesson.

"Austin has been great teaching my 8 year old ukulele. He is patient with the struggles of a young beginner. He takes a nice pace without rushing, but also keeps my kid focused, which is no easy task. Learning an instrument over video, rather than in person, is an extra challenge, but Austin is good at observing, demonstrating, and talking through hand positioning and other nuances despite being over a screen. I also appreciate the lesson notes, and links to materials!"

From Online pupil from England George D.

Johnny is an awesome teacher. Instructive. Quick to find what you need to focus on. Patient. Insightful. Funny. Just what you need if your time is precious, but you can get in front of webcam for a few hours a week. He's helped me get those tones right and given me the confidence to grow. Really, really importantly he's always there for questions and support outside of the lessons."
