Julian is an outstanding instructor. He has an amazing teaching ability, offering a great deal of knowledge and patience for people of all levels. I am really glad to have found a way to really learn what playing bass is all about. Thanks to Julian, I feel like I am able to hold my own if I ever try to look for a band to play with. I now feel like I can play and sound good doing it. Highly recommend!!

I started out with absolutely no musical training at all. The first few sessions we spent on learning the basics of how to hold the instrument properly. Julian then asked me why I wanted to learn so that he could find the right method for me. Its been about 4 years and I feel I keep getting better. I have learned more than I ever thought id be able to. I even played live in front of fans before a stars game at the AT&T Center. Julian is a great instructor and will tailor your sessions based on what you want to learn, all the while giving you the proper tools to grow on your own and find your own sound.

Jim is a great guy and excellent teacher, but was not up to date on the oldies instrumentals and that was my main profile request. I did learn things from him in other areas that will help me with other songs. Thank you

Very patient instructor! Love that he read my student questionnaire and formatted sessions based on my experience (just a little) and likes/dislikes. I can't wait for class each week; definitely recommend Jim to any student.

Music Theory · In studio
I recently began taking lessons with Michael on understanding more about music theory with the objective of becoming a better guitarist and song writer. Not only the knowledge I have gained, but the overall improvement of my musicianship in such a short amount of time has greatly surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend Michael to any musician looking to take their craft to the next level.

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.

Andrew F.

San Antonio, TX

After understanding a student's level and what their interests with guitar are, we pick out suitable music to use for lessons, as the student progresses. I like to experiment, so, after the student gains a good understanding of playing a song or a piece, I like to go over various ways of playing the song to explore other kinds of expression through the guitar. With this approach, my students may learn to bring logic (technique, scales, theory) and feeling (how music is played) together. After a good level of understanding is obtained, I go over beginning lead guitar with students. I strive to make it a fun experience so that motivation is well-maintained and progress takes place. If desired, I can include singing in the lessons!

About Andrew

I have experience tutoring students as well as working with people individually and in groups, as an undergrad Psychology intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from grade school students (making healthier choices) to adults (stress, anxiety, career decisions, bereavement, etc.) to older adults in hospice care, as well as facilitate groups with individuals suffering from a mental illness. Also, I teach a beginner ukule
le class at a community education center. Through my personal, academic and vocational experiences, I have gained insight about the process of working with people, educationally, musically and through goal setting (counseling and coaching).

My approach is one that is peculiar to each of my students. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone has their own way of learning. Therefore, I use an approach that I feel works well for each of my students, with regard to whether a student thinks abstractly or concretely, for example. With so many possible goals, it is important to be flexible to work effectively with each student's learning style.

I see the process as a wonderful opportunity for students to gain knowledge and awareness and to personally develop. With my patience, positive energy, personal insight and passion for working with people, I do my best during each meeting to help ensure my students are working effectively towards progress, while having a fun time doing it. I do this by helping my students create meaning and by keeping the focus of the lessons based on my student's interests and concerns. Further, I strive to feed the passion of each of my students through such means as inspiring and motivating, done genuinely. My hope is that this is undoubtedly clear during the process.

Two important things: I strive to maintain a positive collaboration with my students so that learning and development may occur. I believe this is one of the most important parts of the process. It is essential for students to share the same commitment. Also: I promote the idea of Soul. To me, Soul is any sincere display of passion. With Soul, we perform in a most genuine and graceful way. I personally believe that whether one is playing the piano, writing an essay, giving a speech, or anything (necessarily peaceful), one should do it with Soul.

Personal Development Coaching: Using my insight gained as a counseling student and my aforementioned experience working with people, I am happy to provide my personal development coaching service, which focuses on helping individuals develop personal areas identified as needing growth and development (e.g. career, anxiety, lifestyle). If interested, please, see the details I have provided under Life Coaching. I work with grade school students and adults (including college students).

My approach to personal development coaching is based on a therapeutic intervention called Gestalt Therapy (GT). The underlying idea of GT is that awareness is the key to change. Also, responsibility of the individual and living in the present are promoted. My approach looks to help the individual gain self-actualization. This allows one to discern where such things as anxiety, unhappiness, ambivalence, etc. stem from. I believe that it is important for every human being to go through such a process so that peace and awareness within brings peace and awareness to the outer world. I help facilitate the process in a genuinely humane, empathetic and professional manner.

I mentioned everything that is above so that it may be known and understood. Please, contact TakeLessons if you have any questions about any services I provide, my approach or anything!

Marco E.

San Antonio, TX

My approach is to learn tunes and then analytically break down the harmony (chords), the phrases (melody & solo) and boost your overall technique and ear-training. In doing this, we'll have a bunch of fun in our lessons and increase your overall musicianship. Let's get started!

About Marco

I started playing guitar seriously at age 12, and I was heavily influenced by Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix, Chet Atkins and Wes Montgomery. After being in several bands in highschool and attending the North East School of the Arts, I found that I could study music in college, so I started pursuing my Music Education Degree at SAC and am in the process of applying at UNT. I specialize in guitar technique, reading and music theory.
