About James
I worked for Eddie Van Halen for five years in the 1990's in the Beverly Hills area of Los Angeles and was instrumental in providing help with development of the Peavey Wolfgang and Wolfgang Special Guitar by providing feedback on the prototypes Eddie was designing at the time. I learned a lot from Eddie and his brother Alex about music and the music industry. (All you have to do is pay attention! ) I have played in bands from Hollywood to Toronto and back both as a singer songwriter and guitarist. I bring the Musicians Institute way to the table and get things up and running quickly. I help students get it under their fingers fast and get it right the first time.

I believe in sharing the happiness of making music with anyone who loves music and the guitar in particular. I do my very best to get you playing the songs you love in Pop,
Rock, Jazz and Folk Music of your choice. Today's modern new guitars are easy to play and you will enjoy learning Guitar right away. That is how it should be.
When you study there is a basic understanding of Guitar to be learned that allows an ease of use for anyone for years to come. This will help you reach your goal and improve each week. My students learn to practice in a way that feels comfortable and makes sense. This takes all the stress out of learning and gives everyone something to smile about and look forward to each week.

The good feeling of playing along with friends and taking a solo is within every students grasp. I will show you the way there. And with a solid and straightforward approach to the theory as it applies directly to the guitar you will feel confident and unafraid of any music endeavor. We'll cover harmony and fingerboard theory and give you a road map of the guitar neck that makes it a pleasure to play. You learn the basics and much more than you thought possible retaining 90 percent of what you learn!

Having been a student myself I was deeply involved in music since age 12 and played in bands and duos for over 15 years . I can help you to be a well rounded player and performer with a smile, a laugh and a joy for music whether your in a band or a budding solo artist.

*** Lesson Details ***
Most students want to play the Guitar to play their favorite songs and I'm the same way. Music is something we carry with us in our hearts and minds. Students will learn what they wish to learn and work at a pace that is comfortable to them. Whether you are a student, “weekend warrior” or a parent whose child has expressed an interest in Guitar anyone can learn all there is to know about Harmony and Theory for the Guitar and how to play their favorite songs.

We cover theory in an easy and straightforward no nonsense way in the first half of each lesson and then apply it to the song you wish to learn. This creates an atmosphere where you understand and feel at home with the Guitar. You get an understanding right away and because it is immediately fun it allows you to feel comfortable at any level. Music is fun, and songs are the creative expression of what we feel. Combining theory and the freedom to play and sing songs allows us to express ourselves through music. 
After 6 months students will have a solid foundation in theory, and a road map of the guitar fretboard enabling them to advance to an intermediate level if they are ready to do so. Students will know enough that music as it relates to the Guitar, which is the world’s most popular instrument in contemporary music, is not a mystery but is a welcome friend. And they will be able to play songs by popular artists and advance at a pace that is satisfying and enjoyable.

play pop and rock, and
introduced me to
fingerstyle guitar. I love it!”

""James is a trustworthy man, great with answering back right away. Always ready to help with new members. I would definitely recommend him." ~ PJ Stover of PJ Stover Voices; Independent Film & Recording voice-over artist
-----------------------------------
What James spouse says about working on songwriting with him:

"James is my husband for over 10 years now. Over the years, I have seen James give guidance and counsel to many hopeful musicians of all ages, and inspire others about how music influences and benefits our lives. I would highly recommend James to anyone who wants to learn guitar, voice, music theory, and acting. James is a great talent, and study with him would benefit anyone with the sincere desire to grow as an artist. When we married, I had fallen in love with James’ conversational style, and his vast knowledge of music. When I heard him play guitar, I knew that I wanted to write songs with him, and we released our first album, in 2012 on iTunes."

Keri W.

James was a wonderful instructor! Not only did he make my son feel confident about taking lessons he offered great advice and guidance about the acting industry. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seriously interested in improving their acting skills. My son is 12 years old.

I have been teaching one on one and group lessons for 15 years in various subjects, Including Music, Dance, Theatre, Academic Tutoring (Eleme
ntary/Middle School subjects: English, Writing, Reading, Math, Social Studies, Reading, Writing, Learning Skills, Civics, French, and test preparations), and Culinary Lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like the combination of relaxed and goal oriented. I like to get to know my students and learn about about expectations and goals they have for themselves. Then I set up a plan that will help them achieve their goals and get them closer to what they want from their lessons. I take into consideration their interest, style, and help them to find their unique learning style.

I do have some guidelines for parents and students. If the student is a minor, I ask that the parent be in the house for the lesson. I also ask that the lesson be performed in the Living room or Music Space.

About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

About Amanda
Hi! I'm Amanda! Meet me here: https://youtu.be/vXQSDJpnXkU

Want a teacher who knows what they're doing? You've found her! I'm a PhD student studying Linguistics: Second Language Acquisition. I have mastered and use only the best and most current ways to learn languages based on today's research in my sessions! Plus, I always make sure we have a lot of fun and laughs too!

I'm a recent English instructor at the English Language Institute of the University of Florida teaching students of all ages. I've taught French at the Ohio University to undergraduates. I've been teaching since 2006, so if you're looking for someone with experience and know-how, that's me!

My first experience teaching was through France's TAPIF program where I was given over 200 students, aged 6-12, and a long list of words and phrases and told to do my best! Si
nce then my teaching style has evolved along with the current findings in Second Language Acquisition research. I focus on aiding students in lowering foreign language anxiety through building student agency and perceived self-efficacy. This leads to increased true self-efficacy and improved academic outcomes (Bandura, 1986). What does all this mean? I help students engage in directed discovery learning, provide explicit instruction when necessary, and methodically review in ways that encourage deep learning and high retention rates. Because foreign language anxiety is lowered, authentic communicative activities are painless in my lessons and prepare the student for real world situations.

As an instructor, I play the role of a coach. I enable students to focus on their goals and hold them accountable to accomplishing them. I promote student agency and allow students to make choices about their own learning; this way each lesson fits their individual needs and differences. Before being a teacher, I was a success coach for college students. Not only will you learn your target language from me, but also the metacognitive and self-regulatory skills necessary to get ahead in life, your career, and academia! Who else offers that?

Overall, I am passionate, dedicated, outgoing, sometimes silly, and, above all, motivating. I work hard as a student and instructor, always giving 110%. Sign up for a trial lesson and let's make an action plan together! It's time to reach your goals!

I look forward to working with you!

Karlie has a special way of making each student feel welcome. She creates an environment that is conducive to growth in one's individual yoga practice while at the same time facilitating a fun and energetic yoga community. I have practiced with Karlie for over 3 years and she gives precise instruction in a calm and even manner. Karlie has the ability to know when students are ready to progress and push to the next level in their practice. She guides students with the perfect balance of gentleness and confidence with positive results. Her classes have a fantastic pace and I always feel energized with great mental clarity at the completion of class.

Love, Love, Love Karlie!! I mean who couldn't love 90 minutes of hot Bikram being guided by an Aussie :) I love yoga and have been practicing Hot Yoga, Hatha and Vinyassa back east for 10 years. Recently having moved from east coast to west coast, where everything is different including yoga, I needed to find a new studio. So I did... Coronado "Bikram" Hot Yoga. I thought....if its HOT then I knew it was familiar and exactly what I needed....SWEAT to get my now 55 years young body back in shape, whatever shape that was, I knew that it was yoga that would do it. My first class I immediately found out that "Bikram" is very different than anything I had been practicing. 90 minutes of verbal instruction of 24 poses x2. Hence is where Karlie came into my life on the yoga mat.  Karlie taught me some very important lessons in spite of my years of other yoga styles with some very respectful instructors: First, be kind to myself.  I demand so much of my mind and body and am often disappointed in one or both.  Working to accept my limitations while still pushing myself to grow and learn is always a challenge and Karlie would remind me "there's a savasana after this." Second, my life is a journey.  The fact each class is studiously called a practice helps reinforce this message.  Everything I do or think or learn is part of my path.  Embracing the journey helps me to put many things in better perspective and allows me to enjoy and laugh where previously I may have pushed or despaired. Third, it’s only about me.  I don’t need to compare myself to others, either in the class, or in life.  I find this one harder as I envy those whose practice allows them to do yogic feats that still elude me. But now, I make every effort to view those individuals as inspiration. Fourth, shortcuts only cheat me.  I want to do poses my body wasn’t ready for and would sacrifice form to achieve something that meant more to me at the time.  Now, I understand the importance of taking each step so I gain the learning through the development. Fifth, my mind and body are fully connected.  The more I understand and respect this fact, the more peace I find in my life and in my relationships. Sixth, and most important, Karlie is always on the mat with her students...we are all practicing together, the same body and energy together in the hot room and I am ever so grateful to have practiced with her :)
