Are you interested in learning to play the music you love, using techniques that are actually healthy for your hands? My instruction promotes efficient, ergonomically sound, time-tested playing techniques.

Do you want to play well? Then you need to learn to practice well. Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer weekly full hour lessons at a reasonable price.

I offer training for acoustic as well as electric (steel and/or nylon string) instruments and provide instruction in popular music styles as well as formal classical.

Quality practice coaching will make a profound difference in your ability to learn and play music effectively, but it takes time. That's why I offer weekly full hour lessons at a reasonable price. Practice well and you will play well.

Leaving a second review for William to tell players out there how awesome he is. Having worked with William for over a year, I can tell you his teaching style and ability to communicate are superior to that of other teachers. Moreover, William helped me develop a strong technical foundation for playing—and after 16 years of guitar playing with other teachers, I was surprised how far those little changes can go (i.e., how you hold the pick, where to put your thumb on the neck, the sequential order to playing notes on a chord, etc.) While that may sound basic, believe me, it's not. I almost had to relearn how to play. Overall, I highly recommend William if you're looking to crush your guitar playing goals.

I focus lessons highlighting any genre around technique. Cultivating one's technique establishes good habits regarding things like breath, and posture, which will help maintain a singers overall vocal health. In addition to classical repertoire I have experience working with musical theater, pop, jazz, soul, and country.

Wonderful teacher! I've been taking lessons to improve my voice in speech and daily conversations with Chelsea for 9 months, and I've definitely achieved my goal. She made customized plans, design the class based on my goals, and adjust the class material based on my feedbacks. Now my voice is much more supported and I’m more confident in giving presentations. Overall, she is very professional, supportive and encouraging!

I truly can only say good things about working with Chelsea. I was quite nervous about taking piano lessons for the first time since my early childhood, but Chelsea was very encouraging and made me feel at ease. Even with pieces that I thought I couldn’t succeed in playing, her method of breaking down the piece and then putting it back together worked amazingly for me and I was able to learn to play those pieces. We had to unfortunately switch to virtual lessons midway due to COVID-19, but she was used to conducting virtual lessons and I didn’t feel any hiccups with the switch in lesson format. What’s also great about Chelsea is that she cares about you more than just as her student but you as a person - she actually helped me with a career change (granted it was related to music) and was very helpful in that aspect as well for me. She was everything I could have hoped for in a piano instructor and more!

Chelsea is a tremendous teacher, with sympathy and patience for my absurd schedule and difficulty reading music.

I can provide you with constructive critique as you progress in your work. This also helps motivate students to take a step back and objectively look at where they are now and how far they have come with their work. As a person who is constantly evolving as an artist myself, it is important to bounce ideas off of others to help you improve and get a better understanding on how to develop your own style with your art.

I enjoy the impact art of any kind has on society and others. Art can be used to communicate many things and in many different forms. Also art is subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will love your art expression but it is important that you're passionate about your work.

I enjoy learning through interactions with others and the way they perceive their surroundings. My passion for art started when I was very young.

Currently I am the author and illustrator and designer behind a brand of children's products. My background ...

I have been teaching music theory for years. Since 2012 I have been teaching in many schools and churches to help my students understand what they are playing, what they want to play and what they hear. My students can hear a chord and tell me if it is major/minor/diminished/augmented/dominant etc. They also will be able to figure out what key a song is in by ear and what key a vocalist is singing in for accompaniment. I teach the number system to those who want to know which chords fit in each key. This includes the number system which is the method that MOST performing musicians use while they write, play gigs and tour.

Allen was able to get my daughter caught up on what she was not able to fully grasp during the COVID online school year. She feel much more confident going into her next school year (especially since Math continues to build on what you have learned previously) with that foundation to build upon. Thanks!

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …
