Max has been a stellar double bass tutor for my son. He caught on right away how to work with him and improve his playing, technique and music theory. You can really tell he has a passion for music (especially the double bass) and teaching. Will continue to have my son study under him :)
Jonathan R.
Max was very helpful as a teacher. He gave me a lot of good insight into picking the bass for bluegrass music. I've been primarily playing bowed music. I plan to continue my lessons with him.

My first experience with Valentina. She was engaging and was interested in learning what level I was at and how she could help. Should be a fun experience.

I focus on using the language as quickly as possible. It is important to verbalize immediately. Grammar is very standard in Italian and I teach it, but reinforce it mainly through usage, spending most of the time on vocabulary and communication.

About Jeannie

I have been in theatre since I was a child. My first love was acting until I was bitten by the directing bug when I realized I could watch my baby be born as the play came to life. To support myself while going through my theatre degrees, I worked with computer and became certified with Microsoft a

Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

"My girls (8 and 11 years old) really enjoyed their lessons with Simona. She was able to structure the lessons to meet their individual needs and interests. One of my favorite moments was coming home from work to see yellow post it notes on many household appliances and furniture as she had the girls go label these items in Italian as a fun little "quiz". Simona was the perfect solution to introducing my girls to the language of their relatives. We'll be back once our schedule allows."
