Kerstin has been a great tutor for our son. Not only does he enjoy working with Kerstin, but his German skills have noticeably improved (along with his grades). Kerstin is a great communicator, always on-time, never cancelled and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Kerstin.

Kerstin is a fantastic teacher. She connected right away with my daughter Chloe who is 8 years old and immediately engaged and had her learning German after 1 lesson. She is punctual and professional. I highly recommend her.

I've been helping students reaching their Spanish goals for 12 years. I'm mostly experienced in adult learning (+40 years old students), from beginner up to advanced levels. I like to follow a communicative teaching approach, motivating students to interact in real situations, we are going to learn but also have fun! I specialize in grammatical and technical classes as well as conversational ones.

There’s nothing like the feeling of a good class, a class that was enjoyed by the teacher and the students, so I always try to create a bond between students so that classes are more customized. It also helps to develop confidence and promotes the use of Spanish in the class. It doesn’t matter the topic and the focus of the lesson, humor, laughter and little jokes are a must in all classes to break the ice and to make the class more pleasant.

I can't wait to get started!

My bass experience began later than my guitar experience, but I pursued it just as fervently! Over the last 13 years or so of playing I have played bass in many projects. From alternative, to metal, to folk, to indie-rock. I've been a guest studio bass player on a good number of tracks and still continue to play and teach today. I play bass (in addition to other instruments) almost nightly at the a dueling piano club I regularly play for.

Most bass teachers that also play guitar are really just guitar players that can play their way around a bass on a basic level. However, there is much more to a bass than just playing what a guitar player or other musician might be playing!

The bass is a unique and colorful instrument in its own right. It shares some things in common with a guitar, but has a wide range of its own qualities and abilities. The bass plays a PIVOTAL role in almost all music. I would argue that it is even MORE crucial than many other instruments like guitar or ...

"More than just a teacher.

I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently.

Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him."

"I have been looking for a high quality guitar teacher for a while and I found it in Phil Circle. He is a professional musician and makes a living at it, so you know he is good.

He understood the skill level I was coming from and what I needed to improve. Phil gave me some exercises and scales the first meeting, and I learned more from those exercises than I did in my previous lessons with two other guitar teachers.

Phil is the real deal, he knows how to teach, and he will make you a better musician!"

Sandra's level of patience and her ability to teach while making it fun has helped my daughter tremendously! She has more confidence and she is more controlled with her voice. She has also learned to express what she is singing about through facial expressions. Sandra's guidance has given my daughter an advantage in her endeavors. I would highly recommend Sandra to anyone!"
