Hi there! I've been playing guitar since I was a teenager during the '70s. i play and teach rock,blues, jazz, fusion and read and compose music. What you can expect from me is a patient, serious, determined teacher who knows how to convey simple to complex technique and ability to those who are destined to be a student and musician. I can teach how to read, listen, interpret, improvise and evolve many musical skills.

Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!

Thomas C.

I have been teaching professionally for the past six years. As a student who struggled myself in nearly every aspect of education, I understand the importance of individualized learning. As a teacher and performer, I look to find relationships between the emotional and intellectual facets of music. By doing this, I try to uncover the mystery of violin playing, allowing my students to gain an understanding that will last with them forever.

Every single student posseses the potential to fulfill his or her violinistic dreams. I cater my teaching around the goals of each student, while still instilling a high artistic integrity.

Though I center each lesson around building a superior technical foundation, duet playing, the theory of harmony, and aural skills are integral parts of my teaching. I strive for my students to develope a beautiful, in-tune, pure sound that can directly connect to their own emotional palette.

About Thomas

Hailed as "delightfully spirited, [with a] rich tone" (Cleveland Classical) violinist Thomas Cooper has appeared as a soloist with several American orchestras, including the Colorado College Festival Orchestra, the Coeur D'Alene Symphony Orchestra, the Credo Baroque Orchestra, the Dubois Orchestra

Talvez a maior dificuldade que exista para um aluno é ter uma referência real de sua voz. Referência que engloba aspectos técnicos vocais; musicais; cênicos como também aspectos de posturas, compromisso com a carreira e com cada trabalho proposto. Hombridade. Tive a oportunidade de assim de conhecer uma das minhas melhoras referências: Luiz-Ottavio Faria. Em todas as aulas que tive pude receber um conteúdo técnico refinado, embasado e experiente pois não se tratava somente da postura vocal, da técnica ali trabalhada ou de notas certas e sim um contexto completo do que você está cantando como também interpretando. Toda aula com ele é aula para ser um artista em todos os sentidos. Grato professor e amigo. Bravíssimo por sua carreira e por sua conduta de sempre.
Manuel Alvarez
I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Faria in Brazilian Theaters where we song a few Óperas toghether. Now I´m living in NY and I am having the opportunity to improve my technique with this excelente teacher who gets with all his profissional experience and a lot of sensitivity, explain and identify the erros of the voice and posture of the body. I can say that Mr Faria is on of the best Bass currently, as well as one of the best teacher I met. Congratulation and a lot of successs in you profession.

Mr Faria,
is a complete opera singer, with a great background and stage experience. Is awesome the way he conducts the lesson, explaining all we need, how many times we need. When he gives an example, we can feel this solid technique, and art of singing.
Thank you Maestro

Hi, my name's Andy! I've been playing drums since I was 13 years old. I started out taking professional lessons until I gained enough confidence and foundation to go on to perform with various groups and in live settings. I have toured all over the country and played with very talented musicians from many different genres. At the age of 18 I began teaching drum lessons to others to share my knowledge. My students have gone on to form musical groups of their own and challenge themselves with live performances. Contact me if you are looking to learn beginner drum techniques, prepare for an audition, brush up your skills, learn your favorite songs, and play the best instrument in the world! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! Let's have fun!

Andrew didn't teach me through Reverb, but I made an account just to say how much I appreciate him. His lessons were fun, and worth every penny. I would recommend him to anyone, any age. He taught me drums for 2 years, and it was a blast. He is the most patient, down to earth and funny guy, and his teaching style was so easy to learn from. He is definitely one of a kind!!!

One of the greatest drum teachers out there, I highly recommend this, to newcomers, and old timers too!

Experienced guitar instructor of over 10 years, offering highly-personalized lessons built around the musical preferences, needs and goals of my students. I teach students of all ages in a warm, welcoming, LGBTQIA+ friendly environment.

For beginner students the focus will be primarily on getting you able to play songs from artists you love quickly and enjoyably, with a focus on developing good rhythm, technique, guitar care and a solid foundation of chords that can be used in innumerable songs. Theory will be given in small, easily-digestible pieces, and always within the context of actual musical examples. If you're interested in learning to sing while playing, I'll also help you find ways to incorporate it early on so that it becomes more natural as you progress.

For students with some experience the direction of our lessons will be largely determined by your personal needs and goals, but subjects we might cover include songwriting, finger-picking, expanding chord vocabulary, ...

"I have been taking violin lessons with Ha-eun for a couple of months now and I am very excited to be working with her. It is a real pleasure. She is very educated/talented musically and is very patient with me. She works with students of varying music levels. I have some music experience both through school and through previous violin lessons years ago when I was younger. We began working where I left off. Her lessons are very organized and they consist of 2 components, both a music theory component and a technical component where I learn how to hold the violin/bow correctly. During my first lesson, she had the patience to tune my violin (despite the cold winter which can really affect violin sound/make tuning hard), set my shoulder rest properly on the violin and set the "No fret" violin finger board tape which can take a while. I really enjoy taking lessons with her and I anticipate working with her for a long time moving forward in my violin education. It is with no hesitation and no reservation that I recommend Ha-Eun for new students as well as those wanting to go back to learning the violin like me. She has a very positive attitude and is very patient when I have difficulty learning anything. I'm very happy I found her on TakeLessons and I look forward to many many more lessons with her!"

A few weeks ago I learned about Justin's online classes and signed up. Any doubts that I had about online instruction ended after the first lesson. My son is improving greatly. This is his review, "He's an excellent teacher because he has good teaching skills!" Justin uses helpful materials, he has a clear methodology, he's thorough, and as a current performer he's inspiring. We plan to continue with Justin weekly in the school year."
