About Amber
I have been a performing singer-songwriter/graphic artist for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs, released several CDs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am both easy going and goal oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons and enjoy every minute.

I provide the syllabus & handouts needed initially
but will may assign a book after the first few lessons. Students should have an empty three-ring binder handy or iPad in addition to owning their own guitar or piano/keyboard. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if needed.

Within 6 months*, the student should know and be able to play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow basic sheet music. Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning.

Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

* results will vary with each student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Each student needs a guitar or piano/keyboard and a 3 ring binder.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting: Folk, Rock, Blues & Country.

James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

About Rick
I will create a free personalized WordPress syllabus after our first (short) interview.

We can work together via email, telephone, and even use video-conference software for a virtual meeting.

Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, we can meet the old-fashioned way, face-to-face! I actually prefer that because deskside training can be very productive!

An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers and on the Internet. I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. In the 1990's, I was building PCs on my kitchen table, and manually installed RAM chip-by-individual-chip on the motherboard. (Yes, that is now an obsolete skill.)

I created my first website over 25 years ago. Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor,
web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller.

I'll be available to help you as you need me, on your schedule, because I am no longer seeking a full-time, punch-a-time-card job working for anyone else...!

I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, and on the Internet.

3 FOR THE PRICE OF 1 (See Below)

I’m an award winning photographer with great teaching skills who can teach you how to “Escape the Green Box” (get off of the Auto setting) and really use your camera and/or Adobe Lightroom to make and manage beautiful images. These are the highest quality and in depth, lessons taught one-on-one and should not be confused with quickie 2 hour overviews. I don't just tell you to "push that button" or "turn that dial", I teach you how the various camera settings impact your images. I give you the knowledge to fully understand, control and utilize your camera to make beautiful images matching your artistic vision.

I have a very easy going and relaxed teaching style, more like two friends chatting and having fun. But it's all about you and your needs. The first thing that sets me apart is that I listen t
o you. We then tailor your experience around what you already know, what you want to learn, what your photographic goals are and I cater to your learning style. This has been a winning formula with me for over 400 students spanning 6.5 years of private tutoring in photography, camera use and image editing.

These are private lessons - not a room full of people. My schedule is flexible but I do try to limit it to the hours of 10:00 am to 5:30 pm on all days of the week, however weekend time slots tend to fill up quicker. I've found that lessons of 2 hours each seem to work the best as it allows us to get into some depth each time but not so much at a time that it's overwhelming. If requested, I will do shorter or longer sessions. I have a 2 hr. minimum for the first session so book two back-to-back sessions for the first session. Lessons longer or shorter than 2 hours on weekends can only be confirmed a day or two ahead of time.

If you sign up for lessons, you can bring 1 or 2 guests (family, friends, co-workers, etc.) who can fully participate in the lesson at no charge, In other words, up to 3 for the price of 1. Just let me know in advance.

I took basic camera/photography lessons from Dan. He is extremely knowledgeable and detailed in his lessons. Few things I liked about his teaching approach -
* He had prepared a list of topics to introduce/teach based on my specific needs
* He asks good questions, so we actually think about logic and answers
* He is very detailed and approachable, willing to answer any questions

Found his class very useful and would definitely recommend him photography lessons!

Although I consider myself an organized person, after 3 months using Lightroom I had complete chaos on my computer. It seemed I had 4 catalogs, Images I knew I had were no where to be found and I seemed to have other images in 3 or more places. It as a mess and I know there must be a better way.

I found Dan on the internet (Yelp and Craigslist), scheduled a 2 hour session with and brought over my laptop. Dan was wonderful. He listened intently to my problems. He asked me about my workflow and things that I never thought of like how many cameras will be taking photos which will all be put in Lightroom. He then mapped out where my images were on my laptop as well as my catalogs (turned out I didn't have 4 I actually had 6 - there were 2 I didn't know about.

He then proposed an image storage file structure and naming pattern, showed me how to merge information to get down to one catalog, get rid of duplicates and add missing images. He walked me through each process several times till I felt comfortable doing the rest on my own at home.

It was so great that i came back 2 more times to get info on keywording, collections and on the 3rd session we went through the magic of the Develop module where we took some ho hum images I took at Yosemite and he showed me with a few slider moves who to make them worthy of hanging in the living room.

Later, when I got stuck he helped me out through email at no charge.

Dan's style is laid back but articulate. He talks in lay terms and works at your pace. I really can't tell you how happy I was with his style and the depth of knowledge he has in the product.

About Christopher
My strengths and skills lie in my work ethic. I teach with the same passion regardless of the pupil, but a completely unique style depending on how the student responds. I have been teaching software since I was very young, it has always just come intuitively to me. That being said, there are infinite learning styles, everyone's brain chemistry is a little bit different, so I adapt accordingly. A lot of this software and technical knowledge is difficult and tedious, and there are often many different means to the same end, but my teaching style is thorough and simplistic, and I will always explain things in a way that is cohesive to the student's learning process.

I have worked with Chris on a number of photo editing projects and I have been guided through the process with ease. He has done professional product photo shoots for my business and edited images prior to posting to an e-commerce website and has the eye, layout and technical ability to produce stellar results. When I am in need of direction on how to get the most out of images I use for print or online applications, he is my "go to" person for guidance.

About Peter
I have been teaching classes in Basic and Intermediate Photography for over eight years at the Los Angeles Center of Photography, and currently lead several on location workshops as well. I have tutored and trained groups and individuals in Adobe Photoshop for over twenty years and in Lightroom since its inception.

I have worked as a professional commercial and editorial photographer in New York and Los Angeles for over twenty five years. For much of that period I owned and ran a small photo agency that represented over 40 photographers (including myself) and this enabled me to become proficient with all aspects of digital image management including workflow, cataloging, meta data storage, archiving and copyright protection and licensing.

I help my students with solutions, whether it is learning how to use a digital camera and apply b
asic photo techniques and principles, or teaching people how to organize and manage a collection of several thousand images. I work patiently with my students and classes, making sure I listen and understand their specific needs and then setting up a course that will best communicate and demonstrate the answers to those needs.

Credentials: Adobe Photoshop (since version 2.0); Adobe Lightroom (since version 1.0); Basic and Intermediate Photography instructor; experienced photo retoucher and digital illustrator; photo organizer (member of APPO - the Association of Personal Photo Organizers)
