About Charis

I have a B.S. in Music Education. I have worked with several disabled students patiently guiding them, finding creative ways to make music accessible to them. I believe it is not about me or the parent, but the student. I work with children of all ages believing that we can find a way that works

Alexa B.
Great teacher! She was able to teach my daughter in 3 lessons what her band teacher couldn’t do in 6 months. My daughter walked away after her first lesson excited and couldn’t wait for her next lesson. You can tell Charis loves what she does.

Kay is very knowledgeable, kind and accommodating. She is very encouraging and never makes me feel dumb when I hit a sour note. (As a beginning beginner, that happens a lot!) I am amazed at how much I have learned in such a short time!

As a teacher that cares alot for the student, I get to know excactly what the student likes and needs. Music is fun and a passion so learning it has to be fun as well . We will be listenining to your favorite music as you learn to play to it. The best way to learn is to listen and then playing along with good instruction. Learning rudiments and syncopation, there are asignments to practice in the process.

I initially started lessons with Jessica in CA. When I moved to the other side of the country four years ago, we decided to try ways to continue online. After some trial and error, I’m so glad we stuck with it. It’s worked out beautifully even before “Social Distance” was a thing!
Jeanne
Jessica is not only a very talented musician but a great teacher! Her instruction was clear and understandable and she seemed dedicated to her students. I was an adult student and had always wanted to learn to play the violin. I took lesson for three years until my schedule became too busy. I would definitely recommend her to potential students of all ages.
Nate
Jessica's mix of outstanding skill as a professional musician, her effective read of how different personality types approach music, and her distinct ability to transfer skill and understanding through a teaching mentorship - were THE factors that brought me back to the violin after a hiatus brought about by a poor match between me and a previous teacher. Whether music theory or technique, Jessica's teaching helped me through barrier after barrier. I am so fortunate to have found her.

Do you want to learn to improvise like the greats? Do you want to learn all the essential elements to mastering blues guitar?

I focus on building personalized lesson plans that focus on the needs and goals of each unique student. I use a comprehensive approach to teaching which includes songs, theory, technique, improvisation, and composition. This method ensures that my students are not only learning to play guitar, but to make music.

I provide my students with everything they need to succeed. Not only do I provide the student with what to practice, but also how to practice it, and just as importantly why it is important to their learning. When following all instruction given in the lessons, my students progress rapidly, on a week to week basis, and others on a day to day basis.

"Hunter is clearly an experienced actor, knows how actors work best and how to get actors to bring out their very best work. She gives you just the right mix of adjustments and encouragement to really find the character for yourself and make it your own. She is always willing to go the extra mile and makes sure that you really “get” the scene. I feel so grounded and 100% prepped after every coaching session with her. I am a much better actor today because of the work we have done. #sograteful! She really is the best!"

"Greg is a awesome guitar player and a great teacher.
I only took lessons for a month because I really didn’t have the time because of work and other chores I needed to give attention to but Greg was really friendly and patient and if I had the time to really focus on guitar, with the help from Greg, I’d probably be awesome by now.🤙🏽
If you’re thinking about or wanting to learn how to play, I’d highly recommend Greg.
Thank you Braddah Greg and ROCK ON 🎸"

She kinds of stimulate thinking at the time of learning and hence make piano learning interesting for kids rather than something complicated and boring stuff.

She was also nice to offer free lessons in month of august, that helped us to evaluate her compatibility with my daughter."
