John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

"I took four years of Spanish in high school and tried studying independently on a few apps in recent years. I always received an "A" and yet never became fluent. Ana is by far the best instructor I've had! I finally feel like I'm really learning the language. Ana's lessons and homework include interactive activities, conversation, and reading. She immerses me in both the Spanish language and culture, which makes me feel more prepared and excited for travel to Spanish-speaking countries. I will continue studying with her long-term!"

Best Spanish Textbooks for Self-Study

However, since the Spanish self-learning market is constantly expanding, we have to be careful. You may spend money on a book that doesn’t suit your needs as well as you expected it to. Another element to think about is your reason for learning Spanish. It may be different from someone else’s motive for learning Spanish. But no matter what that motivation is, in the end, we have …

Test Yourself: Masculine & Feminine Spanish Nouns

In English, every noun has a neutral gender. This makes it easy to learn, so you really only need to learn the new word and the learning stops there. In Spanish, on the other hand, every single noun is either masculine or feminine. This means that every time you learn a new Spanish vocabulary word, you need to learn its accompanying gender as well. This may appear confusing for beginners, but bear with me! Here are the general rules for determining masculine and feminine Spanish nouns …
