About Jesse
*Disclaimer*
I'm currently not taking beginner students on guitar, bass, drums, piano, ukulele, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, flute, and saxophone. I highly recommend my studio partners Tyler, Andrew, and Melissa though. Please check out their profiles for the following topics:

Guitar, Bass, Ukulele, Piano, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Tuba, Flute, & Saxophone

My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir
, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Once or twice a year we'll also stage a larger event off site for more individual students and bands classes to perform.
Adult students also occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

This was my son's first lesson, and he is looking forward to playing his trumpet and coming back for more lessons. I was hoping to spark his interest in music and so far so good.

Business Conversation, Social Interactions, Accent Reduction, Grammar, Reading, Academic and Business Writing.

About Mary
Because ESL, particularly conversation ESL, requires group participation, I have decided to accept only group tutoring, with a minimum of 3 people, $20 per person or $60 per group.

I have been an ESL instructor at the community college level for over 30 years. Because of my love for teaching non-native speakers of English, I have founded English for Professional Development for those aspiring to go beyond academia. For these career-oriented achievers, I have had the opportunity to teach at major companies in Silicon Valley by helping them climb the corporate ladder. I hope we will be able to establish a relationship that is a long-lasting one. My goal is to pass on my knowledge to you, and if you can learn from me and pass that on to another, then I will have achieved my goal as a tutor.

The past five months spent with Henry teaching me my second language has been worthwhile. My decision to choose him as my instructor has paid off exponentially. He immediately immerses you in the language and steadily increases your exposure as you gain proficiency. This is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher, someone to push and challenge me to learn but also there when I was having difficulty.

As someone who has zero experience with the German language he definitely provided the firm foundation I needed to confidently continue my studies alone. I have no doubt when the time comes for more lessons I will revert back to Henry.

Er ist ein sehr guter Lehrer!

Send me a message if you are ready to soar!

About Nicholas
I'm a certified ESL instructor from the United States. I graduated with honors from the University of Georgia with degrees in both German and Political Science.

English and German students can expect to improve every session depending on the students' needs, for example, pronunciation help, test prep (IELTS,GRE), interview skills, literacy, homework assistance, current issues, etc

Essentially, I believe students learn by example. My bilingual and multicultural upcoming allowed me to see and understand the world differently. Spending summers with my Paraguayan grandparents as a child and learning German by living with a host family as a teenager demanded that I had to be creative and work with others to simply understand and to flourish. As an elementary school teacher, foundations must be taught and understood through the teacher and f
ellow students. My hope is that my students will learn and grow to care and understand the world through others' perspectives and languages.

As a professional, I look forward to meeting you and facilitating your growth in either the English or German Language.

Bis Bald!
