Despite what TakeLessons says about my location, I can come to you even if you don't live on the East side.

About John
I have an associates degree in music and I have been teaching lessons for 10 years now. I also have experience as a substitute teacher. As a substitute, I have taught all grades, all subjects, and I have helped out many kinds of students each with their own way of learning.

Besides teaching, I love learning too. Anytime I have a question I immediately start seeking out the answer. Learning never stops!

*** Lesson Details ***
Ever wondered how musicians write music? Why do they make the choices they make? Why do those choices work? Why does music work the way that it does? I can answer all these questions and much more.

With me as your guide, I will unlock your musical superpowers and make you capable of things you didn't know were possible. I have many different methods for teaching not only technique, but how to listen, and ho
w to think creatively so that you can unlock your full potential.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide my guitar, picks, and tuner and that's really all you will need as well.

I'll occasionally bring my laptop with me to use some music software to assist in my lessons.

I'll always have pens and paper so I can make notes or diagrams if needed. I highly recommend that my students have a spiral notebook so I can more easily cater to them.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in many musical genres including rock, ska, punk, progressive, jazz, folk, and more. Music theory is a big part of what I do as it's the universal language of music. If you learn enough theory, you can learn ANY instrument.

My son was new guitar player, he has now had several lessons with John. We have seen his skills grown exponentially. John really connects with him and keeps him engaged. He has taught him soo much in such a short span of time. John is a fantastic teacher!

About Mark
I am a lifelong lover of music and education. I will use my 41years of performance experience to show students how to play guitar, bass, or sing, but more importantly, how to enjoy those things!

I believe music is, first and foremost a source of joy, and my lessons are designed to bring that about. Whether you desire to be a full-time rock star, or just a hobbyist, playing in your church praise band, I can show you how to do it, and have a great time doing it!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are individualized, based on the needs of the student. I teach all ages, all styles. For guitar, I prefer beginning, or intermediate students, although I think I can help the advanced player as well.

Bass- I teach all ages and skill levels.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Pro Tools, Reason, cakewalk pro, Garage Band, and many other software p
rograms, Samsung laptop and two Dell PCs,

Unfortunately, yesterday was my last lesson with Mark, as I am moving to Guam. I would definitely not be giving up my weekly lesson with him if that weren't the case! I've learned so much in the short couple months taking lessons from him. I would recommend him to anyone of any skill level. Very helpful and kind. :)

Coming from seven years of teaching experience and a lifetime of learning, I can help you build the skills you need. Whether you want to improve your writing, reading, speaking or listening skills at a basic level, or want to earn an extra edge for high-pressure, high-performance situations, I'm your guy. I'll bring my experience teaching ESL, high school English, research, and college-level English to the table, and build up your potential in the skills you need for school, college, and any career.

About Benjamin
Learning can come easy for some or be a struggle, and it helps to know how someone else has dealt with the situation to see yourself get through it. That's what made me want to be an English teacher; my best teachers have always been those who know their stuff well, and who pulled me through the struggle to see the benefit for myself. Over the years, I've helped different folks work on their English conversation, their art skills, acting, and all kinds of reading and writing. What I want most is to see you grow and succeed!

I am a licensed high school English teacher with BPS, and I have also studied art and graphic design. I have taught in schools and smaller settings to students from 12-79, and from various language backgrounds. I speak English and Portuguese fluently and have strong Spanish, as well.
While I am currently teaching onl
y high school English, here are some other areas I have taught: acting (performing arts), set design (performing arts), graphic design (yearbook design), speech, AP English Literature (college level reading and writing), ESL (all ages), writing tutor and ghost writing.
