We gave a poker lesson with Athan to our son for his 19th birthday. It was the best! Athan was extremely responsive and well prepared asking us in advance what our son wanted to work on. He made it fun while learning many skills. Highly recommend Athan!

Voice is my first instrument and I teach all levels. The vocal technique I teach is drawn from the Bel Canto Tradition and tailored to fit more modern styles of music with emphasis on posture, muscle relaxation and breathing technique among fun and interesting vocal exercises!
I have specialized in Jazz voice and improvisation and I am happy to pass on to you what I have learned so far.

I am an experienced musician and performer with a variety of teaching skills gained over 20 years of study and action. Lessons in my studio are about so much more than just learning to sing a song or write music. Students are instilled with business knowledge, work ethic, and confidence so that they can truly accomplish whatever they set their minds to. We go deep and focus on how to develop new mental and physical habits that can help the student better express his/herself. We work hard on a curriculum that is specifically catered to the student's needs, and of course, is fun too!

I've worked with students from ages 6-65, with varying backgrounds and interests. From complete beginners to professional performing artists. All students are guaranteed to see improvement in their technical skills within the first month of lessons. Let's do this!

Singing classes for me are a great experience and I enjoy classes a lot. I always look forward to lessons and practice. Classes are always convenient with online. If there were more than 5 stars, Jameson would get them!
Kabir J.
i was definitely nervous coming into a singing lesson and was scared to sing in front of anyone, but Jameson is a very patient and knowledgeable instructor who makes you feel very comfortable to talk to and to sing to during the lesson. he gives very useful feedback which you can take with you and practice to improve a lot. I learned so much from him and he really adapted his teaching to what I wanted out of my singing experience in terms of the style of the song. I would highly recommend Jameson as a singing instructor.

I have been playing chess for well over 30 years. I have taught one on one
children and adults for about 10 years. I have great patience when I teach
students never believing that any concept is too difficult to understand or
master. I have a love for the game that I want to instill in others
I have hundreds of chess books and have gotten to know lots of chessplayers
throughout the years. I do my best to have my students gain and UNDERSTANDING of the game rather than just rote memorization.

Mike taught Leo in person before the pandemic started and has been doing online lessons with him for the past eight months. He is amazing with both. Leo has a very short attention span, but a deep love for music. Mike has been able to hold Leo’s attention every week for over a year — even during online lessons. Leo has become an awesome little pianist, and has developed a love for the piano. It has given him the ability to express all of his feelings and has helped his attention span for his schoolwork. Mike has so much patience, and always inquires about Leo’s favorite activities. He is great with kids and makes them feel so comfortable. Leo loves his “booming voice” and the free play blues music they get to play together every lesson.
