I can play any number of styles from blues and country to hard rock and heavy metal. I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now. I know music theory very well and I'm great with making the theory part fun to learn while teaching to play a style that the student prefers. I'm an easy going guy and really patient. I make the promise to every student that I will give them every bit of effort and support I can to propel them in their music career. I'm one of those people who gets along with everybody and I like to make my lessons fun for each student.

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've been

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
Brad
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

Hello! I would love to help you grow as an artist and reach your fullest potential. I am a Voice Teacher and Acting Coach with nearly 10 years of experience.

As your voice teacher I tailor your lessons to meet your needs. I will guide you through the proper way to warm up your body, breath and voice. We will focus on technique to improve your breath support, stamina and range. I will provide you with tips and tricks to sing in any style while still staying true to your natural voice.

Even the greatest singers don’t sound their best if they are singing the wrong songs. After getting to know you and your voice I will make repertoire suggestions that challenge you and let you SHINE!

Singing is so much more than sounding good...singing is storytelling! I will be your guide in discovering the meaning behind every word and note and help you to convey the story to your audience.

Carl is the best voice teacher. My 12 year old daughter has improved her voice tremendously since day one. Lessons are fun and very efficient. Thank you Carl!

Carl is one of the best voice teachers I’ve had. He is always so prepared and encouraging! When I have a problem, he thinks of solutions and adjustments until I nail it. I’ve only been studying with him for a short while, but I’ve already grown so much. Thanks Carl<3

Do you want a math teacher that is excellent at teaching and FUN? Well you have come to the right place! I have taught for 5 years in New York and 2 years in Berlin, and my students will describe me as enthusiastic, funny, and caring, but with a dash of ridiculousness! My goal is to make a hard and dry subject like math into something that is enjoyable. I am a certified New York certified professional teacher that loves teaching math and I hope I can get you to love math too.

I have taught common core subjects such as Algebra 1, Algebra 2 & Trigonometry, and Geometry while in New York. I also have experience teaching middle school (6th-8th) and secondary subjects such as Pre-Calc, Intro to Calculus, and Intro to Statistics.

About Nathan

I started my career as a civil engineer, but once I got a taste of teaching I never looked back. I taught in New York for 5 years and last year I started my international teaching career by accepting a teaching position in Berlin. Teaching is my passion and I hope my love for math will rub off on

Hello there! I am a former instructor for the Junior Appalachian Musicians program, teacher at the Mountain Music School, and a Luthier of twenty years. I like to emphasize the fun and magic in music, these lessons shouldn't be a source of stress, rather a source of joy! Each lesson is tailored to the student, and will move at a pace comfortable to the student. I have spent two decades playing a large swathe of music, though I gravitate towards old time banjo and classical guitar.

About Kyle

I am a music lover first and foremost, my roots are in mountain music, clawhammer banjo specifically. That music captured me from an early age and I hit the ground running with it. Though it didn't take long before I picked up other genres and instruments. Classical guitar quickly became one of my f

I have 10 years of math tutoring experience, which have helped my students achieve top scores on standardized exams. I stress understanding over memorizing formulas to ensure my students can appreciate/enjoy math and apply it to any quantitative career (engineering/data analytics/research).

I recommend just starting with a single 15-minute lesson to see if we are good fits for each other and start a roadmap to progress toward your goals! My rates is for a one-off session, so it is extremely negotiable if we work together regularly.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have. However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. Or maybe the teacher/professor is not the best

Hector puts forth 110% towards his work and students to ensure quality material. He is patient, and is more than happy to clarify any questions.
Not only does his passion lies within teaching, but he is continulusly striving to learn new things. He loves to analyze complex sciences and the world around him, and as an outcome he formulates fascinating theories. Not only is a great teacher, but a friend who truly inspires those around him."

"Mark is a thoroughly knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor. I just completed a series of lessons with him to learn the basic elements of my new camera and settings so that I can go beyond the auto settings before embarking on a trip to Peru. I couldn't be happier with what Mark taught me. In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!"

"My regular art classes were canceled due to COVID-19, but a friend knew someone who was taking some some private classes online with Carolyn and I decided to try it out. Now that I have, I think it's much better than being a single face among many! I'm improving so much with the one-on-one feedback and suggestions that I'm getting and Carolyn is such a kind, funny, and personable woman that I don't feel intimidated at all, even though my skills aren't where I'd like them to be. She's also extremely flexible with scheduling - with the shelter-in-place orders and with kids in the house 24/7, I can't always meet at the same time every session, but she lets me choose what works best for me which is another thing I don't get with regular classes. I'll definitely continue taking classes with her even after life returns to normal. Thanks Carolyn!"
