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.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

CDF ACADEMY has been doing Mixed Martial Arts since 1979. A lot of our training is thinking out of the box and is very hard to find. Our curriculum consists of Tibetan Llama Kung Fu, as well as water boxing, Tai Chi, Filipino Weapons Training, JKD, and Cdf Street fighting: defensive techniques for the street. So much more as Wooden Dummy training and Women's kick boxing and training. I trained with Grandmaster Wai Lun Chois and Guru Danny Inosanto who studied with the late Bruce Lee and Guru Rich Lamoureaux.

About Sifu Jack
I was accepted in an all Chinese School in Chinatown Chicago in 1973 when it was very difficult for non-chinese students to study. My Sifu was Grand Master Wai Lun Chois who fought for 8 days out of 13 days in full contact in South East Asia Singapore to become the Grand Bare Knuckle Champion. I have taught over 15,000 Students since 1975.

Take lessons anytime and anywhere. If you fly into Vegas I am available to pick you up from the airport and go start training at your hotel, at a school or local park... Have a great day.

There are (unfortunately) many Martial Arts instructors who know just enough about self defense to get their students killed. Sifu jack is a TRUE instructor with years of experience and he possesses an exceptional reputation. The best thing I could say is " I'd have him watch my back and/or protect my loved ones anytime".

I train specifically in combat for Brazilian Jui Jitsu, American kickboxing, and Muay Thai. My training regimen will require a large amount of endurance both mentally and physically. If the student keeps up with the training consistently, results will be seen every week! The training will include a balance of body weight exercise and technique mastery. Shaping both the student's body and skill as a martial artist.

About Ikyo
My name is Ikyo, I have been studying several different types of martial arts for 16 years and have taught students both in classes and privately for the past 6 years. I specialize in teaching combative styles such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai, and American Kick Boxing. However, these are not the extent of my martial arts knowledge. Feel free to ask me questions about my style of teaching and what to expect during a class.

You are doing yourself a disservice by not training with Josh. Josh makes you work hard and there is no time for excuses or shortcuts. He is extremely knowledgeable with new workouts and doing things to help you reach your goal.

You will be pushed and challenged but in the end, you will be more confident in yourself and your abilities! Best thing is Josh is always encouraging and he believes in you. He wont let you quit on yourself and he surely wont quit on you.

He is an excellent teacher and really cares about you. I personally have some physical limitations and Josh is always able to adjust workouts and techniques so that I can get the workout without injuring myself. I have worked with other people that were not accommodating at all and I left their worse then when I came. Working with Josh has truly restored my confidence since my injury and I will be forever grateful.

Stop wasting time and doubting yourself. Work with Josh, you will not regret it.
