About Azuri
Learning is one of my main pursuits. My name is Azuri and I have studied music for over a decade and have my degree in guitar performance from musicians institute. I've had the gift of studying many artistic crafts and spend my time today trying to further my own study, while sharing what I've learned with my students.

Art is one of the most important tools we have as a culture and contains in it a shared history, tradition and the keys to future ones. Whether it be through the primal qualities of music or the impulses of dance, the records of drawing or descriptions of writing, these are the tools for our expression. I have had the great fortune to study, in many different settings, a small piece of these traditions and sharing them is paramount in respect to receiving them. I love sharing knowledge and I hope to elevate yours as a st
udent.

Teaching Philosophy -

My teaching philosophy is built on well rounded communication, explanation and examples. So, that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment.
Along with being provided good information, a student learns better and feels more motivated to learn when there is a balance of positive support and confidence building accompanied by constructive criticism and examples/information that can help a student assess what ever walls they may be meeting in their musical growth.

I understand that all students/artists have different goals they wish to achieve. So it is very important to me to accommodate each individuals needs and wants to help them grow in the fields they wish too; However, In that I have played music for a long time, I understand there are certain things that a student may not have been exposed to yet; It is important that while focusing on a students artistic goals they respect and are open to the suggestion and guidance of their teacher.

I truly believe music has an amazing influence on the world and has the ability to change peoples way of thinking. Therefore, I try and keep an open awareness to all music, so that I can understand all different musical languages utilized to communicate to people, and I don't believe I will ever know them all. I hold it to attention to influence my students somewhat similarly so that they can shape the landscape of how we communicate musically in the future.

I also try and be very patient with my students. Knowing that when I feel rushed, it makes information more difficult to comprehend, remember and allocate. I love watching the gears run in my students head, so I try and provide information that pushes a student but is within their abilities.

HUMOR is very important. I like to break people out of their shell by telling a joke and hopefully getting one back, so they feel more comfortable and free. One of a Artists worst enemies are nerves. Keeping things light-hearted and maybe even a little small talk can be very helpful to a students development and growth on a topic. After all, Art is meant to be fun and we should enjoy every moment of it, in fact we should enjoy every moment in life period.

I understand music requires focus and discipline and I have certain expectation of a student to understand that and practice. You can't buy chops, you can't buy music theory etc. you can get help but eventually your the one who must understand it and play it.

I am here to help you. Based on what I know and what I have extensively studied, I will do all that I can to help you achieve your musical goals. I am here to answer your questions and help you grow. I love teaching because I love sharing knowledge; As long as your seek it, it is here for you. Otherwise, I'd still love to hear some jokes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm very disciplined but am also very light hearted. It's important for me to assess things seriously, so that one can understand a topic or piece of information.

I generate my lessons based on the individuals needs and therefore draw from various curriculums, sources and examples, such as : MI curriculum for ear training, Theory, Single string Technique, Reading, Rhythm guitar, Ted Greenes Chord Chemistry, Berklee Guitar Method, as well as The Real Book, other artist books(Eric Clapton, etc.) The Guitar Players Hand Book, Bach pieces and self developed curriculums, relative to the topic at hand and students personal goals, amongst many others.

-Beginning students within three months of consistent lessons should have the ability to solo and playing chords to songs that they are interested in and songs provided in the lesson along with a basic understanding of the major scale and its relationship to all of the diatonic music.

-intermediate students should have an elevated understanding of scale and chord patters along with the theory that explains modal relationships and use of these concepts.

-Advanced students should learn all of diatonic scale shapes and modes assuming they don't already know them in which case their specifically situation will be assessed

-Professional students I expect to have specific questions therefore where they grow should be largely subjective.

Overall, in a short amount of time on a scale of 1 - 10 I expect to in three months at-least elevate a students musical abilities one full point if not more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio in home in private room with guitars, amps, piano, and seating.
Em's studio is family owned cafe with studio in finished basement with an office, recording equipment, and teaching space for acting and guitar.

*** Specialties ***
As a Musician I try and play as many styles and be proficient in as many as possible and therefore can play most. However, in the fields of blues, jazz, funk, flamenco and Latin I excel.

Aaron was quite a good coach. I accomplished all my objectives. However, i live in Ventura and the lessons are in Los Angeles so the distance is too far for me. Therefore, i won't be signing up with "take lessons" for additional lessons.

Aaron is punctual, courteous, and incredibly knowledgeable. He directed lessons to address what I wanted to learn, but always made sure to bring practice materials and blank sheet music for the days I wanted to leave the curriculum in his hands.

His extensive education is crucial to his understanding of theory and composition, and with all his insight he was able to help me parse out my own pieces so that I could flesh out my own arrangements.

I not only received the guitar training I signed up for, but also invaluable teachings regarding gear, composition, theory, and performance. There was never a question I had that Aaron couldn't help me with.

He's an excellent teacher and an excellent person.

About Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

I traditionally strength train and consistently utilize HiiT training so as you could imagine I've developed some imbalances in my body. Thanks to Lindsay she was able to recognize this and help out tremendously in the flexibility and core aspects of my training. I'm stronger than I've ever been and my ROM Has increased significantly. I strongly recommend using her expertise and training in this area.

I'm new to pilates so I can easily get confused. Not with Lindsay! She is so specific with the movements, I know exactly what to do next! Not only that, but how she articulates which muscles to work and how to make the most out every single exercise. Guaranteed to burn out your muscles, but then with her stretches, you leave feeling great. How a teacher speaks has always been a deal breaker for me. Lindsay's voice and her demeanor is so pleasant, encouraging, and fun! Also, her body is GOALS! I will follow her to whatever studio she goes to! Thanks Lindsay!

My daughter wanted me to find her a flexibility coach to help her with dance. Because we live in a rural community, this type of instruction is not available. I did an online search and was very fortunate to connect with Take Lessons and Lindsey. She takes a 30 minute lesson twice a week and has seen considerable improvement in her flexibility. Lindsey is not only a great teacher but a great person. Her and my daughter have developed a personal relationship. Lindsey is very knowledgeable, encouraging, and kind. She has been taking Lessons from Lindsey for 11 months, and we plan to continue with classes because of the excellent instruction she has received.

About Tyree
My love of the game started very early in life. I played on my first organized basketball team when I was 5 years old. I played in either park leagues, for my school, or for the Reebok Slam n Jam league until I was 24 years old. My aspirations for any type of pro career (NBA or overseas) was cut short because of a knee injury suffered, oddly enough, at work, not on the court. However, my love and passion for the game never dwindled but instead grew, as I eventually got involved with one on one tutoring and coaching.
I am now 45 years old and I recently received my AA Degree in Kinesiology. I also coach girls varsity basketball in Los Angeles, CA. Last season, my first, our team had the highest victory total that they have had in over 10 years. We also had our best ever finish in league and hosted a CIF play-off game for the first time i
n school history. I know a lot about the game and teach with the love, respect and passion that I feel for the game. In short, I teach basketball because I know it and I teach it the right way. I will break down every aspect of the game into basic simple skill building drills, that can be worked on anytime. As these basic skills progress, we will reconstruct them and we will learn to incorporate these skills into our overall game. My focus will not only be on offense. I will teach proper defensive stance, rotations, hands and feet positions, and proper slide technique. The lost art of the mid range game (15 ft) will be resurrected, as well as many other basic skills that I see lacking at every level, including the NBA.
Just remember,
To truly know the game is to respect the game; to truly respect the game is to love the game; to truly love the game is to know the game.
And the only way you can do that is by learning the game the right way. No one is born spinning a basketball on his/her finger. It is through hard work and dedication that greatness is born. I will give you the skills, but the dedication and hard work must come from you.

"Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong."
