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!

I teach students how to read and how to increase their reading comprehension with different methods of acting out the plots and making them come alive with students.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

Reviews from Others:
Gohar S. Said: Cody is a great teacher - my daughter loves learning piano now (it was difficult to convince her before).

Paul G. Said: Cody is a very knowledgeable teacher! He is very patient with students as well! I am looking forward to seeing what my own musical path will take with his help!!

Minna S. Said: Cody was very prompt in his response and made himself available so my son could take lessons. He was very polite and patient with my son. We look forward to seeing our son's progress with Cody's instructor.

Judene B. Said: Corey is a wonderful piano teacher! He is kind and supportive, and motivates you to work at your best. I highly recommend!

Grace C. Said: Cody is very patient and accommodating to my learning needs.

So, if you need lessons online, come take lessons with me! I'll help you!

About Barbara D.

Fort Worth, TX

View Full Profile

This is a weekly program with 30 minute TUTORING sessions or a full comprehensive course of 45 minutes per week. I use several learning enrichment programs and other supplemental programs that are age and grade appropriate. For tutoring, parent or teacher need to provide current classroom material. I love unlocking the mystery of reading through a variety of lovable characters, general games and computer games in bite sized increments that are comforting and exciting and not threatening, demeaning or discouraging.

Adult literacy is also available.

About Barbara
***I HAVE CPR AND FIRST AID CERTIFICATIONS!***

**********I PROUDLY TEACH THE FOLLOWING:
**PHONICS**READING**PIANO**ORGAN**SINGING**EAR TRAINING**SUMMER CAMPS**SEMINARS**WORKSHOPS**

*******PRIVATE, FAMILY AND GROUP CLASSES******* *HOMESCHOOLS*PRIVATE*PUBLIC & CHARTER SCHOOLS*

NOW ENROLLING FOR SUMMER READING TUTORING AND ENRICHMENT AND PIANO, ORGAN AND SINGING CLASSES!!!

Reading and Phonics is a weekly or Bi-weekly Program. It can be taught as either a full learn to read program or as a tutoring program for problem or challenging areas.

Do you want lessons that will cater to your needs or the needs of your child and not a book?

My Reading and Phonics lessons are made to dazzle and awe your child into an understanding of letters, sounds, and the written page with several learning enrichment programs as well as numer
ous supplemental material. I also love to work with teachers when possible and use placement tests to determine where to start and periodically to know how to continue. (The kids just think they are games).

All of my lessons are designed to foster a love for reading or music and focus on your reading and Phonics goals or your dream in the music world as well as build knowledge and expertise for both!

Whether it be a specific genre, general, academic reading or repertoire, just not wanting to stumble over words or just wanting to play or sing the songs you enjoy, I have the curriculum and supplemental material to reach your reading or music goals!

Beginner? We can get you started on the right foot! I have experience with tweens, teens, adult beginners, seniors and children of all ages. I have special curriculum and activities that enhance interest, reduce stress and help you to maintain what you learn.

Pre-schoolers have a curriculum all their own that teaches phonics, reading or music through lovable animal characters with games on tablet, computer and other resources that teach, reinforce and excite their hearts to learn and retain what they learn.

Does your child have some knowledge but just has not excelled in phonics or reading? We can tailor lessons for just that.

Maybe you have some music knowledge but just can't play or sing that special song? We can tailor lessons for that, too!

Maybe your child knows letters and sounds but just hasn't made the leap to reading? We can tailor the lessons to get your child from point B to Z!

Can you read music but not play on your own? Can you play by ear and not read music? I have experience bridging the gaps.

Is your dream to become a Soloist, harmonizer or karaoke star? Accompany yourself or others or just play for fun? Then why not you and I embark on that exciting journey together!

Is your dream just for your child to be able to read at grade level or above? I will give it my all for them to do so.

Is your dream to become a church musician or play for a choir? or Are you already a church musician but need help with a particular song, program or musical?

Does your Church just sing Hymns? We can do Hymn Lessons.

Does your Church sing only Gospel? We can do Gospel Lessons?

Does your Church only do Contemporary Christian? We can do Contemporary Christian Lessons.

Want to learn it all?

Worship to Him and service to others is the reason that I do what I do!

Try us! You'll be glad you did!!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very laid back instructor, though the classes are very well structured.

Usually, we progress with a chosen curriculum according to the student's or parent's vision and initial overview during the 1st few classes. However, all curriculums are supplemented to enhance student performance and comprehension. Our supplemental material is used to go swifter for material that you grasp well and understand, and slower with more repetition for that that you need more practice, without being monotonous. It is also used to provide appropriate but exciting reinforcement of all material to ensure that material is retained.

We are forever updating material and also incorporate games and enhanced activities to keep lessons interesting and refreshing as well!

I also have experience in teaching autistic, ADD, ADHD and those with varying degrees of brain damage.

Books, short stories, plays will be the focus. Writing about the materials read and testing retention will be only a slightly secondary focus. Assignments will be based on the student's present level of advancement and tailored to that level.

About Randy
I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, with a few years behind me; I'm ready to pass on what I have learned. At the risk of tooting my own horn; I am well trained, professionally, both as an actor and a teacher with more than a few credentials to support those claims. I invite you to please peruse my background on the site and feel free to ask any questions you desire.

Regarding Texas Hold 'em (poker), I have been playing and teaching the game, and working for online casinos for over thirty years. My approach is simple, requires extreme discipline, but I can show you how to win mo
re than you lose. And this is true of all subjects I teach whether literal or figurative.

My undergraduate Bachelors is in Acting & Directing I was taught by the same professors who launched the students that formed the now famous Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago (Illinois State University); I also have a Masters degree in Theatre History and Criticism (Theatrical Critical Theory). I have teaching experience both as a GA and in the private sector. I have been exposed to many different types of teaching styles and locales, (i.e. classroom, studio et.al). I hope that gives you a thumbnail concurrently I hope I didn't bore you to death.

Peace and Kindest Regards,
Randy

Sound is everything so that is my first goal and the hardest to achieve being from a distance. My anecdotes will prove to be useful in getting you to produce the best poss
ible tone quality on the instrument.
Technique is what truly unlocks all doors in music having the ability to play anything comes from scale practice and patterns. Metronomes are a vital part of your success.
Finally reading and basic music theory is the essential skill that separates men from minnows in the sense of making music consistent. The discipline necessary to do this is minimal but important.
I trust that you will excel in my class because my methods are tried and true.

I’ve spent the last 10 years exploring the artsy-science of storytelling and persuasive speech, and put in many a late night to streamline success in the voice over industry (commercials and cartoons).

For years, I've spoken for other people...now, I want to teach others to speak for themselves. Maybe you're trying to gain greater confidence in speaking, maybe you're looking to modify your native accent, maybe you want to regain your old voice after a stroke or injury, maybe you want to build a sustainable career in acting/vo like I've done. Whatever you're after, I can help.
