About Joao
I believe that anyone can learn an instrument and, even more importantly, that everyone can enjoy the process of learning music.

I lived in Brazil, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, and in Boston before moving to New York. Moving around so much has brought me in contact with all sorts of people and cultures and has allowed me to grow as a musician and a teacher.

My teaching philosophy draws from different traditions: Socratic teaching method, Buddhist techniques of intense focus and self-kindness, Frederich Wieck school of lyrical expression, and the detailed science of Body Mapping.
As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I place great emphasis on relaxed technique, ear training, and the use of contemporary repertoire along with classical pieces.

My first degree was in English and French linguistics and literature. I later ded
icated myself to scholarly research and completed a master’s degree in History at the University of Amsterdam.

Eventually, I decided it was time to do a rigorous program at one of the best music schools in the world so that I could perform and teach music at a high level. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with degrees in Performance and Film Scoring.

I teach online and normally in my Brooklyn studio. I am currently in Orange County, CA while at University of California - Irvine.

Some of the highlights of my time in New York:

I was awarded an arts grant from the New York Department of Cultural Affairs and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council for my performance and composition work.
I was commissioned by the organization MyFace to develop and implement a program for artistic expression through music, movement, and storytelling for children and adults with facial differences.
I worked as an accompanist and music director for shows and dance classes at Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Whatever your goals are with music, I can help you get there! Get in touch any time to tell me about your goals and aspirations.

If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!

I studied jazz piano with Joao for over a year. In my time working with him, I learned a tremendous amount. Joao is both an extremely talented musician and a skilled instructor. He clearly cares a great deal about his students and their progress. He was always patient (especially during weeks when my practicing had been slow) and both encouraging and supportive of my efforts to master new concepts in jazz. Joao has an excellent sense for what his students want to accomplish in their musical explorations, and an ability to tailor his lessons to the student’s unique goals. He has an impressive knowledge of both the history of jazz and music theory which makes him an incredible resource for learning about the jazz idiom. Last but not least, Joao was very personable and fun to talk to, and I always a enjoyed working with him. He is an outstanding teacher.

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

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.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Tatiana
I am a former German professor from Russia who currently lives in America and tutors full time now Russian and German.

I provide a variety of activities for my lessons so you will never get bored. For example, I will use games, interactive conversational lessons, fun warm up tasks, case studies, and even riddles. We will use authentic materials as well. You will learn conversational skills, formal writing skills, and test taking strategies all in a fun manner.

I have a background as as an experienced lecturer, teacher, and tutor in the field of linguistics (general linguistics, history of linguistics, psycolinguistics, social linguistics, gender studies). Since defending my dissertation, I have continued to do research in gender studies in the field of virtual communication and digital text, especially non-verbal communication, soci
al networks and gender-specific communication. However, I have found that my true passion is helping students in one-on-one lessons.

About Artem
Hello dear students! My name is Artem and I'm 24 years old. I have been playing violin since I was 4 years old and am a freelance musician, composer and pedagogue.
I am passionate about teaching because I believe education and willingness to learn is an extremely important factor for personal development and success.
I was born and raised in Saint Petersburg, Russia and underwent intensive training in voice, violin, composition and piano. After winning the Frieburg Intenational Violin Competition in 2010, I was offered a full scholarship to study music at Dalhousie University at the age of sixteen. After moving to Canada I went through a 9-month intensive english learning program, so I know first hand how difficult it can be to learn a new language. This experience helped me understand the struggles that any ESL student goes through an
d discover new ways to teach my first language to others.
I am excited to get to know you and share my knowledge with you!

Nothing beats learning from a native speaker, especially one as knowledgeable and professional as Artem. Russian is his native language, but you would never have guessed it since his English is impeccable. He takes difficult concepts and makes them simple to understand. He walks with you each step of the way, meeting you at your level and guiding you to fluency. He understands the best way you learn and adapts to your learning needs and situation. Artem will help you attain native pronunciation and will go out of his way to provide extra help and materials. I've been amazed how much I have gained from lessons with him. Highly recommended. Wonderful teacher.

Daniela is very talented and knowledgeable. She communicates very well and adapts her language skills to make you visualize what she is teaching you. Very descriptive and very talented in expressing concepts to help you visualize the body in ways that allow you to use it efficiently while singing. She is very kind and energetic, yet assertive and competent in her direction. I’m going to keep learning with her. Awesome teacher.

Since I was a second language student myself, I know what works and what doesn't. Spanish is a beautiful language and it is a lot of fun. I hope I can help you learn it and practice it.
