About Hissael

I have been teaching and tutoring students for 6 years now. I teach math and guitar. The thing I love most about my teaching isn't the end result of a student's passing report card or a student's accomplishment of learning a difficult musical piece. It is the effort that takes place between the stu

Wonderful first lesson, Alex adjusted quickly to my level and corrected things I forgot after being away from my clarinet for 20+ years. Will be continuing and reminded me how fun it was to play music rather than just listening.

Mel has done a fantastic job getting me started on Mandolin. I have a tiny bit of musical background, and he has been able to help me quickly move to where I need to be in order to challenge me to grow. I highly reccomend him.
Patrick K.
Mel is incredible and a very thoughtful instructor. He takes the time to make sure you understand the concepts and works with you to make sure you progress in an efficient logical way. He really spends the time with you and you feel like he is as committed to your learning experience as you are. I would recommend him for anyone looking for lessons and I am excited to keep studying the fiddle and violin with him.

"My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about."
