I have been incorporating theory into the lessons for the 25 plus years I've been teaching. It's an integral part of learning each piece and additional books can be used to reinforce new concepts if needed.

I have an M.A. in Reading, which has been invaluable in analyzing learning styles and teaching to each student's strengths. I have been teaching piano for over

Lilan is an excellent piano instructor with her professional skills and years of playing experience. She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot. I will recommend Lilan to everyone who would like to expect an improvement on their playing skills as well as receiving great instruction experience.

I cannot recommend Lilan highly enough as a piano teacher. She is calm, patient, and dedicated in making sure you learn both the basics of piano and intricacies of any piece you want to play. She is also an excellent pianist - check out her videos on this page! Thanks, Lilan!

I will teach you to play from an emotional center and tell stories with your lead a guitar playing. I specialize in jam band guitar playing. This style, most typified by Jerry Garcia and Trey Anastasio, borrows from rock, blues and bluegrass. It is known for emphasis on soaring climaxes during improvised sets.

Why do some guitar players "noodle' instead of flow? The short answer is they are unclear about what they want to say and they are nervous. I will teach you to get the note from your inner ear to your fretboard. I will also teach you how to stay in a flow state. My lessons combine theory, ergonomics, mindfulness and journaling. The result will be confidence, clarity and the development of your own voice.

About Henry

I have been playing guitar, writing songs and singing for over thirty years. I believe that playing music is one of the most profound experiences that we can have on earth! I am also a yogi, meditator and hypnotist. I believe our mindset deeply affects our ability to have fun and progress. I do te

"John is a hands-on teacher with a friendly, no-nonsense approach to teaching. He first looks at your expectations and tailors the lessons accordingly. My objective was to be able to strum chord progressions to accompany my singing aspirations, and he was able to get me to learn the initial chords quickly. His aim was to get me to be able to sing basic songs that I liked quickly, so that i could sustain my interest in learning chords and strumming.

I have had a great learning experience with John so far, and am looking forward to many more lessons with him.

"Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers."
