I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio production as well. Feel free to ask me questions, and expect informative non-judgmental answers.
I have spent a lot of time developing as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer, which helps me in all aspects of my music and teaching, I'm always looking to learn more. I have played in heavy metal bands, but have also done solo acoustic singer/songwriting stuff, I have produced raw hip-hop but also love old soul and ska tunes. Being well rounded musically and drawing from lots of influences is what makes me a good teacher and shapes me as a m
As an artist I have been featured on MTV, Rollingstone, BBC, NBC, VOA, ARY, Alt Press, LA times, documentaries and more. I have been playing guitar and recording music since childhood and am a classically trained sitar player and Indian classical vocalist.
I am a great teacher for someone who wants to write songs, or is into Indie, rock, pop, reggae, metal, hip-hop, and electronica.
*** Lesson Details/ What to Expect ***
You can expect a custom, fun and attentive one on one lesson. I am thorough and patient. I expect you to love music and put forth effort. I'm laid back, I will work as fast or as slow as you need. I prefer a total immersion technique and get my students playing right away. This boosts confidence and fosters interest because once a student enjoys playing you don't have to convince them to practice.
By the first lesson you will be familiar with the instrument and it's parts, and playing your first chord.
In 3-6 months you will be playing guitar with a greater knowledge of chords, basic harmony and be able to play scales and songs.
Once you have a foundation of chords we can explore more specific music subjects and lessons will become more personalized: songwriting, guitar tones, musicology, making a DIY record, shredding like a metalhead, I can guide you to help you achieve your goals.
I receive a very large number of student requests everyday, So to keep things organized please keep the following in mind:
Takelessons is a wonderful service that I use to handle all my payments and scheduling. I want to focus on the teaching, so they help with the rest.
I have a 24 hour cancelation policy, please give me at least 24 hour advanced notice, or you will forfeit your lesson credit.
All scheduling changes or time off can be requested right from the website for your connivence. it's super easy!
Use an email that you will actually check to sign up for notifications, it's not spam, it's to help us all stay organized.
Remember to please reserve your spot by paying in advance. (I have a waiting list of people asking me for those super convenient days, and times)
Online students please make sure you have the highest connection speed available to you. This will ensure you get the most out of the lessons.
*** Equipment ***
Please make sure you have your own instrument, and a note book or device to take notes with.

Crystal hails originally from Los Angeles, CA - where her musical parents gave her a head start by including her in the family business the moment she was able to contribute. She went on to study classical voice, piano and music theory at The Boston Conservatory of Music. After concluding her studies in London, she returned home and began working regularly as a theater performer, appearing in twen
Crystal believes that music is serious business but that it should be fun. She encourages her students to play music they love, as well as expanding their musical knowledge. She is a firm believer in basics first and emphasizes theory and technique as the tools to support creativity and provide freedom, power and control. She believes effort beats talent every time and the student who practices consistently will see results, whatever their level of ability. Most of all, she believes we were all born to make music.
*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson structure varies depending on the student's instrument, age, level of experience and musical style. However, all lessons focus on:
After 3 or 6 months of consistent lesson attendance and practice, students will have a clear understanding of how their instrument works and how to care for it. They will be able to read basic music notation. They will be working toward clearly defined musical goals and they will have at least three performance pieces learned.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Loft Space: full size electric piano with weighted keys, small digital recorder, microphone, Garage Band, parents can sit in on lessons
*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring a small keyboard for vocal students with no piano, karaoke tracks and a digital recorder. I also bring a selection of games. Students are expected to purchase all necessary books and sheet music.
*** Specialties ***

Crystal has increased my daughterâs self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those âteenâ years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!
· Piano ·
Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughterâs love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystalâs professional and caring teaching style.

Denise has been teaching private lessons since 2008 and is currently teaches in Hollywood. All classes can be taught online as well except dance which is taught at the world-renowned International Dance Academy.
Denise is an award winning professional actress, and is also a hugely successful model. She started her own gogo dancing company in Canada from 2005-2011 and again in the USA in 2018. She has danced for events like EDC, ULTRA, and the World Olympics.
Denise has an extensive training background starting at a very young age in acting, singing, and dancing, and still
Her teaching style is personal and catered to you, making sure you feel confident to go for your dreams! Lessons will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone, but always in a nurturing safe environment. Work on YOUR goals and get one on one training made for YOU!
· Speaking Voice · Online
Let's start with the positives. Denise puts in a good amount of effort in teaching you. She's flexible with accommodating your schedule, and she tailors her lessons based on what your goals are. This is evident from her referring to her notes when beginning her lessons with me. She also isn't a clock watcher who makes sure your lesson ends straight on the minute unlike some other teachers.
Is she effective as a speaking voice teacher? So far, yes there has been some progress made. Her methodology might be a bit more different than other speaking voice teachers I studied under. Other teachers focus more on the phonetic sounds, while Denise linger more toward stretches probably due to her dancing background. If you don't like Yoga type of stretches, you may be in for a bad time.
Keep in mind that due to my focus on developing a voice for acting, I'm also not having a pure speaking voice lesson as my lessons are intertwined with monologue work too. If you wish to take speaking voice lessons for public speaking, your mileage may vary.
So why a one-star deduction? Denise at the start can be pushy with trying to sell you more lessons. I mean it goes without saying that of course you'll see improvements faster if you can devote more time to any class, but time and money are factors that everyone should always consider. Let's be frank, private lessons on TakeLessons aren't cheap (unless you're rich of course). I was annoyed when she repeated her tactic three times, enough that it affected my decision to nearly not renew my monthly lessons with her.
She did cease when it seem like I wouldn't budge. Nevertheless, the pushiness did leave my experience a bit tainted, which made me question her sincereness with her excitement and positive reinforcement at times. I continue to give her a chance though because I do feel there's an ongoing improvement with my speech and line delivery. Also because we get along despite being complete opposites in some ways (which seem to frustrate and intrigue her). Despite being my teacher, I see her as a peer in a way because of how close in age we are, but I digress as this review is about her effectiveness as a teacher.
I would recommend giving Denise a try if you’re an actor seeking a speaking voice teacher. In person lessons are still best, but she has proven to be effective as an online teacher despite being a tad pushy with having you buy more lessons from her.

I enjoy a healthy lifestyle and am passionate about the way we work and how I can improve the status quo.
I teach small business with the city I live in, as well as screen printing. School always made absolutely no sense and my questions seldom were answered. Now that I am 30, I can see how public schools assess students instead of prepare. In college, sales is not taught for a reason - corporations don't need more competitors. Personal finance is also not taught. So why are both parents gone from the home all day working for another? Why are the kids being raised by tax funded schools? How can we keep families together without the stigma of working from home?
First and foremost, teaching is a business just like mine.
Life grows from seeds and even after we eat from a seed, we can still plant a new seed. That is everlasting abundance and it is an entitlement. It's only when someone withholds natural resources and asks us to work for them to earn it, that the whole planet gets out of sync.
I have a personal story that fuels me. However, my personal story is one of many similar stories continuing today. I am here to teach what I can to change the world starting with me, my home, then my community and beyond. Which brings us here to TakeLessons.com where we can heal from the industrial era.
I hope we can meet and I can understand or discover why you are here on earth and how you can be in a better position to maximize your potential to share and earn.
Ps. Everyone should work, yes. If I want an orange, I must work to peel that orange. I shouldn't have to go work for a human, to get a check, then go to another human to turn that check into a green paper, that I have to go to another human to buy the orange. All to end up where we began - peeling the orange.

On the academic side of things, I was privileged to become a professional math, writing, and reading tutor in 2006 with Kumon Centers before branching out with my own practice. I have consistently helped hundreds of students from pre-school to college improve in those two disciplines. I enjoy building friendships with my students and would love
Musically, I have been trained in the classical and jazz styles, taken part in piano competitions since I was 10 years old, won many awards on the regional and state level, and played with many orchestras, bands, and other groups over the years. I also had a number of years where I played professionally for events and shows. All this to say, I am no stranger to the stage and to what it takes to "make it" in the music world while still remembering why you love the instrument you play.
Whether you are wanting to learn how to play the best of Mozart, jam with your friends in a band, or build a strong foundation of musical theory so that you can switch instruments (or impress your loved ones) with ease, I can help.
I fervently believe that music and our academic studies are a part of who we are, and if you want to learn how to express yourself on the ivories or with numbers, I'm your man!
