About Alex
Hey, my name is Alex. I'm a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboards, voice, drums, flute, etc.), composer, performer, recording artist, arranger/orchestrator/transcriber, recording engineer/producer & music educator.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas "Cum Laude" in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, with minors in Music Production & Composition. While attending St. Thomas I served as the Music Theory tutor, as well as the live sound/stage/light/recording technician for student & faculty recitals.

I have been playing professionally & teaching for over a decade. My passion for music is something that I love to share with anyone else who feels inclined to make music. My goal is to share the skills & knowledge I've acquired throughout my experiences with those willing to learn & dedicate themselves
to the craft of making music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am experienced in most major genres of music: classical, jazz, blues, rock, funk, folk, metal, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, instrumental rock, "shred," pop, world music, electronica, etc. & feel comfortable conveying the techniques, approaches & idioms to a student by breaking them down into digestible components, while making these new ideas relatable to material they are already familiar with.

In the end, I want the student to learn what they're most interested in learning. I'm here to answer any questions they may have & with my experiences, I feel confident that I will be able to either answer these questions or point them in the right direction. Some topics covered:

Scales/modes
Ear training
Instrument-specific techniques (ie bending, tapping, sweep picking, etc.)
Songwriting & Composition
Arranging & Orchestrating
Sight-reading
Improvisation
Chordal theory & how to read charts
Practice routines & approaches
Instrument maintenance
Instrument-based gear (guitars, amplifiers, effects, picks, slides, capos, etc.)

The student will learn at the pace they set for themselves & can only get out of it the amount of effort they put forth. I expect my students to practice on a regular basis (however brief each session may be). Consistency is key for progress to be made, & if they hold up their end of the bargain, the payoffs will be quite substantial!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice amplifier, tuner, music stand(s), guitar picks & cables.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide guitar neck paper. I expect the students to have their own instrument & any materials they may need to achieve the goals they've set for themselves (such as a weekly notebook).

*** Specialties ***
Progressive rock, classic rock, blues, jazz, funk, disco, classical, acoustic fingerstyle/slap, flamenco guitar; music theory, sight-reading, composition, songwriting, film scoring, music production.

Elena was able to teach someone 500 miles away the basics to a slew of different Latin ballroom dances (salsa, marengue, bachata, cumbia step, etc.) In just a few lessons I was able to feel comfortable enough with the steps and timing to be able to dance in public with others! She was very amazing and was willing to accommodate to my needs as a student. She gave plenty of reference material as well as songs so that I'd be able to practice when not taking lessons. I would highly recommend her as a teacher to anyone who is wanting to learn Latin Ballroom dance, but doesn't know where to start!

About Paul
While attending the University of Southern California, where I received my M.F.A., I worked as a writing tutor in the USC Writing Center and also taught Classical Greek Mythology. After graduation, I taught Verbal, Writing and Literature SAT classes and worked as a private tutor in a variety of subjects.

I later taught for five years at the New York Film Academy in Universal City, CA, where I taught a variety of Critical Studies classes to various levels of students, some in certificate programs and others working towards their M.F.A.

As a former English and Spanish double major, I have always enjoyed teaching at various levels. Most of my other work these days involves the writing and editing of short stories, screenplays and novels.

You’ll find that I have the education, background and experience to be an excellent instruct
or for your needs.

Paul was my favorite teacher at the New York Film Academy.
Unlike most of the teachers, Mr. Paul put a lot of effort and creativity into planning his classes, which made them both stimulating and fun for us.
I also loved the fact that Mr. Paul always respected our opinions, and never made us feel stupid when we didn’t understand something. He was always very encouraging and willing to keep explaining until we got it.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in extra lessons. He is definitely worth it!

My goal is to ensure that every student I come in contact with has the necessary tools to be successful in their academic careers and surpass the hurdle of standardized testing.
I have two degrees, one in Public Relations and Spanish from the University of Houston and one in Bilingual early ch

My GMAT journey began wth a large amount of frustration toward both the exam and the expectations I had set for myself. Leona was extremely patient and understanding of my schedule while I was working and made it a priority to help me feel better prepared in areas I was struggling. Bottom line, if you want to do well on this exam it is YOU who needs to put in the effort - Leona will give you the tools to succeed - but if you want a 700+, come prepared to eat, sleep, and breathe the exam. That being said, I'm happy to have Leona as very close friend of mine now and could not have gotten to the finish line without her! A million thank you's!!!!

Detra has been such a blessing to our family. She came to our home to evaluate our 7-year old daughter who has struggled with reading. She had a great rapport with our daughter, made her feel comfortable and even have fun during the evaluation. She has a patient and positive demeanor and put our daughter at ease. She then spent over an hour with me (her mom), going over the results of the evaluation and recommending steps to work on. Since that time, she has answered my many questions, offering additional resources and encouragement. Looking forward to having her work more with our daughter. Highly recommend Detra!

Ms. Damskov showed amazing love and care for my child and her job. She enthusiastically learned as much as she could about each subject so that she could teach it back to my struggling 8 year old. She is a wonderful tutor and teacher that I would readily send any of my 4 children to. I have full confidence that any of Ms. Damskov's students will not only do well under her, but far excel any expectations.
Your student will develop a love of learning under Ms. Damskov's teaching.

About Timothy
Hi, I'm Tim! From the beginning of high school to where I am now as a honors college student studying Business and Information Systems, I came to the conclusion (for myself, at least) that the most effective way of learning any subject is to teach that subject. During high school, I tutored a variety of subjects (AP math courses, AP English courses, AP science courses, AP social studies courses) while taking the courses simultaneously. In my school district of Edison, New Jersey, many high school teachers privately tutored the subjects they taught in school. Around 20+ students in my year were admitted to Ivy League schools. It was in this school district that I outperformed these high school teachers by the number of students that I tutored on a weekly basis--to a typical teacher's 4-5 students a week, I would tutor 7-8. Of over 50 stude
nts that I have tutored in the past 6 years, less than 5 did not receive an "A-" grade or higher in the course they asked me to tutor. Some of the students I tutored started out in the "F" to "C-" grade range at the beginning of the semester. Some of the students I tutored went on to get accepted at Ivy League schools. I mainly tutor high school and college students.

The most important reason for my success is that I teach students how to teach themselves. Self-studying is one of the most important skills in life--it is imperative in pursuing any education because you can't always rely on having a good instructor to teach the material. What sets good students apart from the rest of the pack is the ability to self study. Why? Because no matter the type of instructor, self-studying works independently of them. If you do not depend on your instructor to do well in class but instead use them as a supplement to your preliminary understanding, you are bound to do very well.

Teaching is very much a form of learning. Whenever I teach someone something, I learn a little more about myself, and it's a feeling that I enjoy very dearly. It's because of this feeling that the pleasure of learning is something I want to share with everyone.
