Great lesson. Worked out a plan to accomplish my goals. Noel is amazing and multi-instrumentalist which helped to combine skills and a jam session into the lesson.

Simply put, Noel is a terrific teacher! I had the itch to pick up the guitar at 39 years old, and wanted to work with someone who had a laid back approach while still having the chops and the knowledge to offer some challenges. I was not disappointed!

Noel has an extremely diverse background in much that goes well beyond the guitar - He's an awesome drummer as well. This made the lessons even more interesting since he could offer perspective from the drummer's point of view, stressing how important rhythm is to becoming a solid guitarist.

On top of everything else, one of the things I like the most about taking lessons with Noel is that sitting down with him is like sitting in on a jam session - a pretty cool feeling for someone who's somewhat new to music, but has always wanted to learn.

Great Teacher

My teacher is amazing. A master professional in his musical field. He teaches like he's done it for decades, even though so young. I would dare to say he can teach with his eyes close. I love all his teaching techniques, from theory to scale, to practicing the Hanon Studies, to ear training and on. I like how he plays along with me while teaching me a new musical score. He completely dedicated to teaching his student and making sure his pupil is satisfied with his performance. He'll even help you with preparing you for an recital or musical event. He knows how. I highly recommend for teaching any pupil from age 3 to 92. He'll ask me what I want to do next, and then we look for scores that I can learn according to my level.. He's attention to your needs as a student and works around it. I always look forward to going to my next lesson and see how I improved and what's new score he's prepare for me to learn.

I teach beat matching, turntable fine-tuning and repertoire selection to help you become the DJ you aspire to be. I own crates and crates of vinyl records and CDs, and I have DJ'd all over the world to enthusiastic crowds, so I can teach you to attain a real joy and skill in the art of turntablism.

Gfire was very encouraging, even though my voice was barely audible at times.
She had very effective advice for training my voice to go higher ("less effort on high notes"). She incorporated singing to help my speaking voice and overall made me feel like she really cared about my improvement. I will use her again next year, and feel like our phone lessons were quite successful.

Gfire was a pleasure to work with. She was interested and attentive and worked hard to learn about my daughter's musical interests and tastes. She supported my daughter's playing and has earned a high recommendation from our family.

This is about you not me!!!!! DJ techniques including Turntables, CDJ’s, and everything you need to know about DJ'ing, from harmonic mixing to creating a real journey, what tracks to start/end with, how to beat match. What to expect and how to get booking...agents/managers. Now some of this can be done on line but I normally teach DJ'ing privately, so lets have a discussion and see how I can help you.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST CONTACT ME VIA PHONE AT LEAST 36 HOURS BEFORE YOUR LESSON. There are specifications I need to discuss with you- and if you are coming to my studio for my own comfort and safety I like to get to know any potential students first. Thank you.

Charissa is an amazing one on one teacher. She goes at your own pace and makes sure you really know what's going on. I'm a slow learner so I love that I can ask her as many questions as I want and when I want! Not to mention, she is one of the coolest down to earth people I've ever met!

Such a great teacher, and you can be sure that she knows her stuff. But what I appreciated the most was the fact that she always made sure that I understood the lesson before we moved on to the next. Teachers this great, that truly care about helping their students reach their dreams, are hard to come by these days!

We've been teaching for 7 plus years and our students have gone on to attend conservatories and win competitions.

We specialize in classical, pop, and EDM, typically use Faber and Suzuki books, and play many music games with young students, to ensure everyone has fun learning.

We love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Ms. Rada Culciar is a well educated and very professional instructor. Her teaching approach is organized and easy to follow. I have made wonderful progress under Ms. Culciar's instruction. I would encourage anyone who would like to study the violin (or any other subject of study) to take lessons with Ms. Rada Culciar.
