About Jesse

*Disclaimer*
I'm currently not taking beginner students on voice/singing, guitar, bass, drums, piano, and ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Melissa though. Please check out her profile:

My Background

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar cla

sses in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio.

Philosophy of Learning

Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations. It's really important to know though that everyone makes their own experience. The process of learning music involves you learning as much about your own mind and body as it does any external concepts, so please keep in mind only you can move yourself forward.

I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.

I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Adult students also occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.

Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)

*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

The best part of my tutoring is to give a good start for beginners. It will be the easy way. Students will be led step by step to gain knowledge and skills in speaking, reading, writing, and grammar issues as well. An easy start gives an easy way to go.

About Sergey

As I speak two languages English and Russian, I can teach both. Russian is my native language, so students can learn Russian from the native speaker. And that is the best way to learn foreign languages. I've been teaching Russian since 2010 and I use my own method, which is not like in boring books. Students have to get what they need to fill the gaps and go further. Who goes, he reaches the destination.

I have taught ESL for 20 years to individuals and groups. I have been teaching both adults and children in private and business/corporate environments.

I like to focus on conversation and pronunciation while learning grammar and the basic rules of the language. This allows students to improve their speaking and listening skills and be able to apply immediately what they learn.

Learning while having fun is my mission!

About Daniela

Hi, my name is Daniela, I’ve taught for 20 years in schools, companies or privately to students any age. I’m bilingual and I can teach Italian and ESL English. Currently I’m living in Italy and I’m very often in the US. Studying a foreign language can be challenging but I’m convinced that learning can be much easier and more effective while you’re having fun! Let me share a small hint: studying is like eating, better leave the table while you’re still hungry and eat only what you like: next studying session you’ll remember all the fun you had and not how tired or bored you were the previous time.

I’m 100% positive that I know exactly what it takes to become a fluent and confident English speaker. I know tons of tricks and methods to an easier, fun and brain-friendly learning journey. I love working with students to improve conversational skills, build confidence and encourage them to improve, not only their English but improve as human beings.
I became an English Coach after I noticed that people were having classes for six months (or more) and still were not able to have a simple conversation. So the only option was to believe that the method people were learning from was not efficient enough. I’ve noticed that people were having English classes but were not really using the language and sometimes, not even having enough contact with it to improve.

Hi everyone! I’m Ty! I’m an English Coach (Accent & Fluency Coach), neurolinguist, and translator. I’ve worked as an English teacher for almost 10 years. During that period I’ve also graduated from Law School, but since English has been my passion all along, I decided not to pursue that career. I’ve already had the awesome opportunity to coach hundreds of people, in face to face and online sessions. I coach people that want to improve their English and reach fluency, and I also coach people that want to sound 100% American. I have worked with coachees ranging from age 3 to 80!

I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional methods, which is usually what we see out there. This idea of learning a language through grammar, and thinking that you will reach fluency like that never made much sense to me. What I actually believe, is immersing yourself in a language and, before you ask me, you don’t need to live in an English speaking country to do that. I can show you exactly how to do that from the comfort of your own place. And the best thing is that, as your English Coach, I will support you through your fluency journey.
We’ll have a few live sessions every week but we’re also in constant touch because I believe that this is the best way for you to become fluent and actually acquire the language.

Ty rocks!!! I’ve had taken classes before with a lot of teachers but I could never see myself becoming comfortable to speak with a native English speaker. After having classes with Ty, he showed everything in a very simple way. Now I’m able to talk to anyone without feeling concerned.

"Bryce has a casual yet effective teaching style that made me feel relaxed and comfortable from the beginning. I already had an advanced level of English,
however I still needed to work on some of the nuances and prepositions in the language. Bryce has helped me immensely. I have started to teach English to others as my level has improved even more. I now feel confident teaching others English as a second language."

"Joy is an impressive ESL teacher, and her methodology is unique. She develops a personalized material for each student, based on defined points that you w
ant to improve. Using your phrases, she prepares your grammar exercises, vocabulary lists and also chooses the pronunciation or grammar books that will be used. You don’t need to buy any material.
I’ve been studying with her for over a year now. When I started the classes, my writing wasn’t at the same level as the other skills. Now I feel more confident to write, and I’ve improved my vocabulary and fluency. She also helped me with job interviews through training, recording, rewriting and correcting my speech to sound more fluent.
Her experience as an ESL teacher gave her the ability to recognize exactly what it is missing in your learning process."
