Improv acting is a completely different realm of theater. It requires you to think on your feet and to be able to turn a situation that meant nothing to you five seconds ago into an entire scene. It explores every corner of your imagination. I will teach you different improv exercises as well as games. I will get you sharp so you're ready for any improv situation.

"Aleksis has been the best teacher (in any subject) that I've ever had! He's very calm and patient, but also stays focused on teaching. Every time I have a question he has a good answer, proving to me that he is very knowledgeable.

Most importantly the results of his instruction have been excellent. I've made more progress under his tutelage in two months than I've made over a couple of years on my own.

An excellent teacher and very affable, I can only think of good things to write about Mr. Aleksis!"

"My 10 year old son has no musical knowledge what-so-ever. We wanted him to have some basics, and he was curious about the guitar. Sadly our family isn't musical and it's hard to know where to start. We were lucky to have engaged Stephen. His calm, patient, encouraging approach has been the perfect complement to my son's temperament.

When I overhear snippets of exchanges during their lesson I am excited that my son is making connections and having a conversation about what he's learning. I can't support his instruction because of my complete inability to read sheet music—so I am particularly pleased that he seems to be making observations and taking small steps towards understanding something that confounds me.

My son looks forward to his time with teacher and (so far) is interested in practicing too. Of course we'd recommend Stephen!"

Being retired , I made the decision to seriously play clarinet again. His skills, as a musician and teacher have helped me regain my passion for the instrument and ability to play at a high level. I would recommend him most highly."

He is our first instructor so I don't have anything to compare him with but I do know people and feel great working with him. I forgot to mention, he has a little studio in his basement perfect for lessons.
I hope this helps anyone . Thx."

Learn Guitar Now | How to Read Tabs

Although learning to read sheet music is a valuable skill for any musician, most guitarists prefer to use a different type of notation known as guitar tablature or guitar tabs. Guitar tabs give a basic visual representation of the neck of your guitar and use numbers to indicate which notes are to be played. Learning how to read tabs is pretty simple, and, once you get the hang of it, you can easily learn new songs or write down compositions of your own. How to Read Tabs Guitar tabs are …
