I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

Our cello lessons cover an array of topics from technique to musicality along with establishing the important connections of mind and body to achieve healthy and sustainable cello playing! I approach every student differently and try my utmost best to cater to every student's need. I have years of experience teaching pre-school age cellists to adults! I look forward to helping anyone achieve music and cello goals!

Rob is a terrific teacher. He covers the fundamentals which my son really needed even though he'd been playing for several years before he started with Rob. Highly recommend.

He is an awesome tutor, and I learn a lot from this lesson. Unlike my previous tutor, he uses his cello to demonstrate things. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to improve at playing the cello.

We will examine your current diet, exercise, and lifestyle habits and formulate a personalized, attainable and manageable total nutritional plan based on your goals and needs. Sessions include a diet and exercise regimen, physical fitness/exercise lessons and training, and techniques for lifelong health and longevity.

*I have experience in many areas of exercise and fitness, but I like to think outside the box, and I don’t actually enjoy going to the gym and “working out”. I much prefer efficient and fun means of exercise (so it doesn’t feel like a chore, but rather something I’d like to spend my time doing). If this is you too, great! We’re going to have a good time, look awesome, and feel amazing!

Your goal, should you choose to accept it: BE HAPPY & HEALTHY!

No, I didn’t say “skinny”, I said “healthy”. Often times when people want to lose weight, they are unhappy with their physical appearance which, in turn, makes them unhappy. They then focus on the immediate ...

Our company Alignment Healthcare has been taking advantage of Take Lesson's dance classes for several months now, instructed virtually by Jordan Wentz. We have tried various types (burlesque, wedding dance, hip hop and more) and Jordan has done a terrific job with all of them! Our employees including myself have provided positive feedback all around and look forward to her lessons after the long work days, it has served as a perfect way to have active fun while learning new skills. Definitely recommend as the pace can be suitable and adjusted for different experience levels! We plan to continue with Jordan as our instructor with different courses each time.

Funny Memes for Learning Spanish

I would never encourage you not to practice grammar or vocabulary, because both are vital to learn to speak Spanish well. However, there is more to learning a language than what you’re going to find in a book. Make sure to take you time to also learn cultural aspects and casual conversation skills. Funny memes and social media can be great ways to enhance learning Spanish, and also entertain you at the same time. Humor is intrinsically tied to culture, so while you learn new jokes or fu …
