About Joao
I believe that anyone can learn an instrument and, even more importantly, that everyone can enjoy the process of learning music.

I lived in Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, and in Boston before moving to New York. Moving around so much has brought me in contact with all sorts of people and cultures and has allowed me to grow as a musician and a teacher.

My teaching philosophy draws from different traditions: Socratic teaching method, Buddhist techniques of intense focus and self-kindness, Frederich Wieck school of lyrical expression, and the detailed science of Body Mapping.
As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I place great emphasis on relaxed technique, ear training, and the use of contemporary repertoire along with classical pieces.

My first degree was in English and French linguistics and literature. I later ded
icated myself to scholarly research and completed a master’s degree in History at the University of Amsterdam.

Eventually, I decided it was time to do a rigorous program at one of the best music schools in the world so that I could perform and teach music at a high level. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with degrees in Performance and Film Scoring.

I teach online and normally in my Brooklyn studio. I am currently in Orange County, CA while at University of California - Irvine.

Some of the highlights of my time in New York:

I was awarded an arts grant from the New York Department of Cultural Affairs and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for my performance and composition work.
I was commissioned by the organization MyFace to develop and implement a program for artistic expression through music, movement, and storytelling for children and adults with facial differences.
I worked as an accompanist and music director for shows and dance classes at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Whatever your goals are with music, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals and aspirations.

If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!

I studied jazz piano with Joao for over a year. In my time working with him, I learned a tremendous amount. Joao is both an extremely talented musician and a skilled instructor. He clearly cares a great deal about his students and their progress. He was always patient (especially during weeks when my practicing had been slow) and both encouraging and supportive of my efforts to master new concepts in jazz. Joao has an excellent sense for what his students want to accomplish in their musical explorations, and an ability to tailor his lessons to the student’s unique goals. He has an impressive knowledge of both the history of jazz and music theory which makes him an incredible resource for learning about the jazz idiom. Last but not least, Joao was very personable and fun to talk to, and I always a enjoyed working with him. He is an outstanding teacher.

About Claire
I hold an MFA in Acting from the California Institute of the Arts and have been teaching professionally for over ten years. I teach Acting and Auditiong to young actors (10-18 years) and I also teach Public Speaking, Voice/Speech and Accent Reduction to those looking to find more ease and power when using their voice in front of others. I have taught, directed and coached young actors who have gone on to work professionally in Film, TV and Theater and my students have been accepted to renowned conservatories and universities across the country (NYU Tisch, California Institute of the Arts, AMDA and others). I am a passionate teacher who believes in the individual and in unlocking the creative genius, the impulses, the imagination and the unique forms of expression within each of my students. In my sessions, I encourage my students to
“play” and to discover how to both lean in and tap in to what is there and then develop relaxation, ease and focus on the task at hand - a monologue, an audition, a speech or working with a text. In addition to teaching and coaching actors, I have worked extensively in the corporate worlds in areas of Voice, Speech and Presentation as a coach and have taught group classes on Public Speaking and Presentation. I have taught and coached students from China, Russia, Taiwan, Italy, Japan in addition to the U.S. Throughout the ten plus years that I have been teaching, I have helped both actors and non-actors, those in the professional business world, gain tools that lead to freedom and ease of expression when speaking in front of others, be it at an audition, an interview, giving a presentation to a board or speaking in front of thousands at a Ted Talk.

Claire is a professional. She is a natural born teacher who immediately clicked with my son. She gave him the tools he needed for an upcoming audition at a theatre conservatory. Anyone from beginner to dedicated professional would benefit from private lessons with her. We feel very lucky we found her with so many less qualified people out there.

Mariana has been an incredible instructor. I came to her as an adult with no previous understanding of French. Her passion for teaching and knowledge of not only the language, but the culture as well, are unparalleled. She immediately made me feel confident by including conversation in our first lesson. I could not have asked for a better introduction to French. I highly recommend Mariana as your first choice for French!

I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes after I began to work as a Nurse at a Los Angeles Nursing Home, where Farsi is the first language of most of the patients as well as some of the doctors and nurses.
Even though it's only two months since I signed up for Farangis's Farsi classes, I can enthusiastically say that I can now communicate with the patients and medical staff in Farsi. I definitely recommend Farangis.

I am a professionally credentialed and certified teacher from California state and I am happy to share my
experience and my love for French with all students and their families.

Johan here and I love music! Nice to meet you fellow music lover.

I have been involved in music since I was just a child. It started with learning piano, then guitar, ukulele, mandolin, harmonica, djembe and so many more.

I’ve continued to learn and perfect my craft by being apart of different types of bands from small to large with varying genres of music. I also formalized my music education with a bachelor of Art in Music. Did I mention I’m also quite a harmonizer? Sign up today and maybe I’ll throw in some tips with your instrument lesson.
