About Jonathan
I see each lesson with a student as another opportunity to help facilitate realization within them. Now in my fourth year as a professional freelance performing and teaching artist living in New York City, I currently hold a private studio of over 20 pupils, ages 6 to 65, professing a wide range of topics rooted in the subject matters of music, the arts, and spirituality.

Most of the subjects I teach are music related, in which I have over 6 years of Conservatory training, a Bachelor's and Master's degree, as well as over 15 years experience performing, recording, and competing on an international level. However, my interests, practices, and skillsets do extend beyond sound and visual art, and in the realm of spirituality.

I specialize in the following areas of musical study: General Music, Composition, Ear Training, Music History,
Music Theory, Sight Singing, and Songwriting. I also specialize in the following instruments: Trumpet and Piano/Keyboards. As a trumpeter, I have competed twice in international competitions presented by the International Trumpet Guild, and have participated in two audition based international intensive programs: at the School for Improvisational Music, and at the Banff Center in Alberta Canada. I was one of only two jazz trumpeters in the world to receive an audition for the 2014 Juilliard Artist Diploma Program in Jazz Trumpet, and besides touring as a musician in over 5 countries, I have served as an educator for the Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance created by GRAMMY-winning pianist Arturo O'Farrill, as well as the Gramercy Brass Orchestra of New York City.

I have also been practicing various forms of meditation practices and Yoga practices for the past 3 years. My influences span from Astral Projection to Reiki, to Vipassana Meditation, to Visualization Techniques, and much more. I believe and live by the idea that creativity is an energy that flows through us, and one's creative abilities can be improved and expanded, through the emotional body, which is influenced by one's perceptions. Throughout my training in music and the arts, I have realized that creative flow and love for what one is and does can be applied to anything in life.

Because of my 9+ years experience as a professional artist living in New York City, my students receive both guidance in discovering their own voice and comfort within their desired field of practice, and also practical approaches to retain and utilize their training and pre-ordained skill sets, with self-application and diligence. Through study with me, my students enable themselves to swiftly make progress and move toward a life of renewed purpose and fulfilment. Through specific assignments, exercises, and practices my students foster a real relationship with their instruments, and themselves, thus unlocking their creative minds, for usage in all aspects of their lives.

I teach out of a my home apartment studio on the upper east side, complete with weighted 88-key digital piano, Bose high quality speakers, recording equipment, as well as musical media, and tablature spanning many musical genres, cultures and time periods. I also am equipped with a spacious floor space for Yoga, Pilates, Weight Lifting, Meditation, and more. Additionally, I am able to travel to any location within the five boroughs for an additional travel fee (TBD based on location).

I look forward to helping you realize your potential! Let's get started...

I would highly recommend Jonathan as a music teacher. Jonathan is absolutely passionate about music, which is evident by his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is very patient with my five year old and encourages her to get her very best effort. Jonathan customizes the music and lessons for my daughter’s skill level while at the same time provides challenges to keep the learning process interesting. In a short period of time, my daughter's keyboard playing abilities have dramatically increased. I am very grateful to Jonathan for making learning fun for my daughter, who always looks forward to her lessons!

About Ana
I am a Graphic Designer with a full time job teaching Photoshop and Photography in high school.
After receiving many requests from amateur and professional photographers, as well as aspiring graphic designers, willing to learn the unlimited creative possibilities that Photoshop has to offer, I decided to join Takelessons and become a weekend teacher here.
If you would like to learn how to create literally anything your imagination leads you to, or just use techniques to obtain an effect you have seen somewhere, you came to the right place.
You can discover the secrets of professional photo retouching or dive in the surrealism of advanced photo manipulation, Each lesson will be customized to your specific needs.
On the other hand, if you are just getting started in Photography, Photoshop or Graphic Design, you have likely tried tho
se You Tube videos and gave up in frustration, as most of these videos are too fast or too advanced.
No worries, we can go through the basics at your own pace, until you feel comfortable with using the tools on your own.
The sky is the limit.

Note: in order to book classes for advanced techniques, students must have the necessary basic and intermediate proficiency levels.
If you are not sure what your level of proficiency is, please check with me and we can figure it out together.

Attention: many hours of extensive work go into creating comprehensive student-specific learning content for each individual student at beginner level.
When booking a lesson, bear in mind that your teacher will be working on developing these materials after the lesson has ended.
I will do everything in my power to develop, complete and send these materials out to you during the same weekend*.
With that in mind, please plan for taking lessons on a Saturday.
Sunday students will most likely not be able to benefit from same-weekend newly developed learning content.

About Jonathan
I am a professional photographer specializing in photojournalism, portrait, food, and wedding photography. I graduated from UCLA and have worked professionally in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their photography skills. Every photographer has a unique vision; I teach students the technical and real-world approaches to bring that vision to life. I can help any student to photograph with confidence and success.

I teach photography students of all different ages and experience levels. I have 15 years of professional experience. I can teach students to select the right camera settings for any situation and compose their photos for the highest visual interest.

As a professional photographer, I frequently travel to New York and San Francisco for photo shoots. I have photographed eve
nts with Michelle Obama and Nancy Reagan. I've worked with high-end restaurants such as Blue Hill at Stone Barns for their food photography. I've photographed alongside firefighters battling wildfires in Southern California. I love to mentor students who want to become effective, creative photographers.

My personal passion is photographing people, but I firmly believe that a great foundation is essential to any and every photographic field. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better photographer!

About David
Dedicated art professional with 18 years of experience in creating artwork utilizing various medias. In my early years I worked as an outsider artist giving watercolor lessons for Susan Edwards of the artist place called "The Art Attack in Sycamore Illinois. After some years of painting and displaying my work at outdoor art shows and inside some stores i went to Northern Illinois University and obtained my Bachelor of Fine Art in painting. I have joined art leagues and art guilds near where I live. I recommend the Kishwaukee Valley Art League and the Rockford Art guild. There i learned how to reach children and adults on how to get interested in painting. Strong competency in teaching and leading aspiring artists in group or individualized settings. In order to become a better artist you learn by drawing in a sketchbook from photos i
will assign every two weeks. If you think they are good then you will redraw them in a journal. We will critique them by email and make wonderful discoveries on how you are getting very good at becoming an artist.

Inside my art studio I have had artists stick to my belief that a sketchbook and a journal with pencils is the best way to improve.

Happy Drawing and remember my favorite words "Just Paint"!

I hope to provide an environment where students can progress from one task to the next with a positive result. I want my students to be able to accomplish their goals and expectations for each class.
