Experienced teacher of 20+ years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate piano student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be playing songs in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

For beginners, I highly recommend starting with a 30-minute lesson. Intermediate and advanced should consider 45-minute lessons. 60-min lessons are available but are only recommended on a case-by-case basis. Please take into consideration your student's current skill level when deciding on the lesson length.

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.

There are multiple approaches to studying Flamenco guitar, depending on the ultimate goal. In the simplest you just learn some techniques and scales to begin or complement your playing. In the more advanced you learn all the intricacies, the details and rules including the structures, "compas", techniques and most advanced "falsetas" or musical segments. Whichever interests you, I will strive to provide you with an understanding and a real foundation. The lessons I offer include some of my own transcriptions of most of the material I teach, including compositions by Paco de Lucia and Sabicas. Flamenco playing will enhance any other forms of guitar playing you may already possess, and will inspire you to reach higher levels.

About Jose

I started learning Flamenco guitar as a teenager, and this allowed me to experience what is necessary for a young mind to learn and grow in this beautiful art form. Its sounds and techniques captivated me and it is that very beauty what will surely keep you learning, regardless of your musical goa

Adeola passionately wants her students to find a success story within her class. Whether that personal success is in becoming comfortable with standing in front of an audience or in comprehending and portraying a character's reality, Adeola will help you find progress within yourself and your work. Adeola's energy and drive allows the classroom to be comfortable, yet productive. She strongly attacks the challenge to find easiness and authenticity in acting, which are two important concepts that sit at the foundation of her coaching. Take a lesson and see for yourself where Adeola can take you in your work.
Abby
I had the pleasure to work with Adeola through an intensive this summer, and she was truly amazing! She is kind, optimistic, compelling, and she genuinely wants her students and those she works with to be the best that they can be. Her classroom was always an accepting environment where I felt confident and safe enough to take risks without fear of judgement (which is so important!) Her use of the Meisner technique changed the way that I now breakdown scenes when acting with and directing others. She is phenomenal with helping students emotionally connect with their characters, and she challenges her students to be specific when figuring out their characters objectives and tactics. My only regret is that I didn't get to spend more time with her!
Aisha
Adeola helped me put a few scenes on tape for an audition. She was very helpful with pulling out the best in me for each take. She was patient, kind, and challenged me to focus in and really bring the character to life. I believe she is an exquisite actress and teacher. She has quite the knack for pulling out the best in her students. I highly recommend her for all of your acting needs!

"I really enjoyed my experience taking voice lessons from Alex! I learned something new every lesson and was given the opportunity to sing some of my favorite songs along with some that were less familiar. Alex helped me with many audition pieces and made sure I was prepared and confident before going into every audition. He made every lesson fun and I would definitely recommend taking lessons from him!"

"Mike has been working with my 12 year old son to improve his sax skills over the last 4 months. They have virtual lessons for 30-45 minutes once per week. I'm absolutely amazed by my son's progress and newfound excitement for playing the sax. Mike has done so much to help him improve his skills and confidence! My son says he feels like he's improved so much and learned some great techniques. He says Mike is patient and "really knows his stuff and taught me some cool jazz stuff too!" I would definitely recommend him! Thanks Mike!"

"Getting right to the point, Ronnie is an amazing choice for an instructor. You can't go wrong with this guy. In depth review follows this statement.

Now we can get to why this is. I am a teacher but definitely not a music teacher. However no matter what you teach there must be a defined plan with structure. Ronnie takes this to heart and provides authentic instruction with passion. The amount of video and photo examples on his bio are unparalleled, it gave me confidence in choosing him. I got see his character and enthusiasm with instruction.

I've never played Harmonica before and Ronnie laid out the foundation that I needed, in easily digestible steps, to become a skilled player on a simple looking yet complex instrument. He has provided guidance on harps to purchase, reference materials, practice schedule and artists to check out. Even with this being an online course he has been extremely attentive to what I'm doing and makes sure that I get all the technical aspects correct. Ronnie checked for my understanding on the concepts and clarified anything I was not clear on. He has been beyond what I expected from an instructor and he has made himself available for questions even outside of my lesson time. It is rare to find an instructor in any field with this passion and customer service. Thank you."

"A+. He is very professional and takes his time to make sure you understand the lesson. He pays very close attention to the details to make sure you do not learn or continue to use bad habits. His teaching method is very impressive. He makes sure that you know why you are doing something and not just memorizing chords. He puts theory into the lesson so you understand why you are doing something rather than just memorizing chords. I'm on my 6th lesson and I only know 6 chords that I learned on my own. But my wife is an accomplished pianist, my kids plays piano, trombone and saxophone and my.wife and kids teachers says he is teaching the correct way. Anyone can remember a chord and strum strings but once you understand how the guitar works and what it means to move from string to string on different frets than you are way ahead if the game. I highly recommend Nikita."

Mastering the Art of Zen Guitar

Billy Joel once said “I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everybody loves music.” Today, we encourage you to think about why you play the guitar.  Dreams of shredding on stage with Steve Vai aside, most musicians would cite the emotional connection to music as a big motivator. Guitar practice, after all, is like a form of meditation; think about it: there's a reason …
