From my lessons the student should expect solid knowledge, fun time with the instrument and great teacher.

About Albino

Albino was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage.

My son really enjoyed his first lesson. He is looking forward to the next session 😊.
Shreya B.
I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

While clarinet is my main instrument, I am equally comfortable teaching beginner flute to students of all ages. I have found that many of the same principals and techniques of clarinet apply when teaching flute.

My son had his first lesson today and has already learned so many things! When the lesson ended, he smiled and told me it was so much fun and the teacher was nice. My son is a beginner at clarinet and usually has a hard time with learning new things, but he was able to understand Jason very well.
Jason is friendly, focused, patient, knowledgeable, confident, professional, and cool. He is organized and communicated clearly what we need to work on and what is the upcoming plan. Jason is awesome and exceeded my expectations. My son is really looking forward to his next lesson!

Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

"Maggie is an amazing teacher. Both my kids love going to her class. My son was the first one to join and has been learning from her for little over an year. In my son's words, "Ms. Maggie is the most inspirational teacher who has increased their interest in art more than ever before." I knew my son had an artist within him but since he has been going to Maggie I see such a tremendous improvement in his work. I see him understanding the techniques and applying whatever he has learned in his different works. His progress motivated me to enroll my younger one too."

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
