*** PLEASE MESSAGE ME PRIOR TO SIGNING UP FOR LESSONS TO DISCUSS GOALS, ANY BACKGROUND YOU HAVE IN YOUR TOPIC, AND ARRANGE THE BEST TIME & PLACE FOR MEETING. ***

Are you looking to learn Guitar, Singing, Beatboxing or Songwriting? No matter what style you are in to, I can help you build the skills, confidence, & practice strategies to become a successful musician. Beginners, Intermediate, & Advanced all welcome!

Majoring in classical guitar performance at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts I was a part of many performance opportunities. These included solo classical guitar recitals, weekly performance class, a collaboration with the Columbia City Jazz Dance Company, and a performance at the Columbia Museum of Art to name a few. Now I frequently participate in songwriting showcases, street performances, and collaborati
ons with bands and music groups of many different genres.

In a lesson with me you will be focusing on four main areas:

1] REPERTOIRE: Songs you are working on in preparation for performance or just to play for fun!
2] MUSIC THEORY: Exercises in ear training, note-reading skills, sight-reading skills, and overall knowledge of how music works.
3] IMPROVISATION: Learn drills to improve solo skills and increase your confidence jamming with other musicians.
4] TECHNIQUE: Guitar lessons focuses on how to properly use the left and right hands in a way that that is relaxed and tension free. Voice lessons entail learning how to breath properly, prevent vocal strain, and expand your range.

In addition to instrument lessons I also provide Songwriting Lessons, Music Theory Lessons, and Music Performance Lessons for more advanced students + I teach Recording, Web Design, and Graphic Design subjects for Artists or others looking to learn how to promote themselves or their projects. (Subjects Include: Logic Pro X, WordPress, Web Design, Graphic Design, HTML, CSS, & More!)

Get started on your path to better musicianship today!

Sylvia was excellent! I came to her class with very little knowledge of the subject but she was patient and taught me step by step on the topics I wanna learn. She was very knowledgeable of Adobe software, professional and very understanding of my schedule. I am confident now on using the program after our classes. I highly recommend her! Thanks Sylvia!

About Etana
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
sion of Design with you.

About Nicole
I love art and I am passionate about making things beautiful. That spills over into Graphic design, Painting and more: I have 20+ years as a graphic designer, photographer 10+ years, artist/painter. I have been instructing for over 6 years. All of my artistic positions led me to run a print shop for several years so I know what you need to prep files for printing, photography, page layout, web and much more so that your files meet industry standards. If your a fast learner, I can go at a faster pace, if you need more time, I am fine with that too. My goal is for you to learn well, advance and put the skills I teach you to use. Then we will layer that info and move on. I'll incorporate reviewing what we worked on before in the future lessons. I want you to be able to put to practice what I teach you so that you can successfully manage on
your own in that area.

I love being outside, I love the water and get inspired by nature. I am not a camping type person but could sleep outside nightly (on a screened in porch, LOL). I love to enjoy life and want you to enjoy learning something new as well.

Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

About Mark Onewolf
I began photographing family events at the age of 8 years old. I was always fascinated with how things work and the camera was no exception.

I learned to shoot with Film cameras. First with my Dad's Pentax and when I was employed I purchased my own. During my time in the Navy and Army I became good friends with a combat photographer who mentored me in photography. Long deployments were perfect to cultivate my skills and there was no shortage of people places and things to photograph.

So what makes me a good Instructor? My education background is Avionics and Electronics Engineering. I am a math and logic minded person which enables me to reverse engineer processes and break them down. I have experience teaching ESL to foreign exchange students which often requires me to understand the task from the perspective of the client
so that I am able to help them understand in the way they learn.

I come from a Artistic family, Music, Art, Dance, Singing etc and being a musician myself I am not just a 1's and 0 person. Photography is a very logical subject not unlike music. There are rules to bent and offers structure yet has a creative release for those of us seeking that.
My clients find that I am patient and laid back and able to explain things in multiple ways until they get that ah ha moment. I am passionate about photography and I hope my enthusiasm is contagious.

As a Professional photographer I see so many bad photos from family and friends and others posting on social media and in forums. Someone took the time to show me and feed my passion so I want to do the same and help to create better photographers and hopefully better photographs.

Mark is a thoroughly knowledgeable, patient and encouraging instructor. I just completed a series of lessons with him to learn the basic elements of my new camera and settings so that I can go beyond the auto settings before embarking on a trip to Peru. I couldn't be happier with what Mark taught me. In addition to the basics of aperture, shutter and program auto modes, he provided very practical information on things like tripods, storage, programs and apps. I can't wait to take more lessons from Mark when I return from Peru!

Mark has taught me a lot of lessons in photography. Very knowledgeable in a broad range of disciplines (i.e. long exposures, head shots, weddings, street, editing, portraiture, product, and more). Covering so many categories of photography I feel gives him the ability to answer many questions that a specialized niche photographer would lack. I am a photographer and I get paid gigs, that's how good Mark is. I received my ROI 100x over. Highly recommended.

Just had a photography lesson with Mark last night. He was great. He explained everything in a clear and concise manner that I could easily understand. He also listened to what I wanted to topics that I wanted to learn and tailored his presentation to cover those topics. Thanks, Dan.

About Reza
Greetings,

My name's Reza. So my bio won't be the typical programmers bio, as I'm not a typical programmer. I find that people choose to work with someone whom they like. Thus, I’ll get into a bit about me, my life, and my story into coding so you can understand a little about who I am.

I really wasn't supposed to become a programmer. While I was a little geeky and played video games, I generally was pretty extroverted and hung out with a lot of people and went to parties growing up. I never saw myself as someone super ‘intelligent’. I thought I was smart, yes, but definitely not a techie. I didn't think I was a ‘nerd' either. So if I wasn't a nerd, how'd I be able to learn something so technical? Because only nerds would and could learn programming and IT, right?? Or so I thought at the time.

I originally planned to become
a psychologist because I was fascinated by how the mind worked and wanted to figure it out as well as help people figure out their own minds in order to be successful in any area of life they wanted to be. This passion stemmed from a young age of 13 when I received a book on how to be a confident man and attract women. See, someone from my video game clan in warcraft 3(I mentioned I was a geek) ended up sending me this e-book that changed my life. My interest in personal development began around dating and meeting women, and then shifted to becoming the best version of myself I could be. I began self-teaching myself social skills, confidence, leadership, body language, positive thinking and transformed myself from a shy geek to someone who could speak in front of a room full of people in a seminar. This ended up leading me to me working as a social dynamics coach at the age of 18 helping men and women obtain power in their social, and dating lives. I coached individuals, ran seminars and helped with the curriculum design.

My love of self-development and coaching drew me towards becoming a psychologist. Even more so, I began dealing with depression and that fueled my fire of wanting to understand what was going on so I could solve the problem. It’s like when you’re dealing with a bug in programming and you have this intense desire to figure out the problem so your application can work! Except this time, the application was my brain and it wasn’t working properly. I ended up being forced to drop everything, school and the job I had, in order to deal with my mental health. It got so bad, I didn't think I'd ever be able to work again. A simple delivery job felt too daunting for me. But, as do all great changes that occur, I began taking full responsibility for my life and began figuring out my health little by little. I put the onus on me to have a healthy mind. I began researching and self-teaching myself about brain-chemistry, and how the brain and mental illness worked. I would use this knowledge to self-tailor a personal treatment plan that let me crawl out of depression and burst back into life. I ended up finished my psychology degree and got to working at an Apple store as a tech specialist. Again, just as with social skills, my ability to self-teach myself a particular skill yielded me tremendous results that changed my life.

Well, that notion would be put to the test a year and a half ago after I visited Colombia. I fell love with the country, and thought to myself, "how can I work and travel at the same time?" I did some research, and found out that programming was a great way to live the digital nomad lifestyle I so desperately wanted. Again, I didn't think I could do it, because, well, I'm not a nerd... or I'm not smart enough...or I'm a 'peoples' person...or I'm a sales guy, not a tech guy....or I'm too old, even if I was only 26(lol)...or I have depression and my mind can't focus on difficult tasks for very long so I should stick to simpler tasks...or *Insert excuse*. Blah blah blah... but, I decided too actually try to programming first before I agreed with any of those excuses I was making in my head. And, then something happened... I don't what it was, but from the moment I wrote my first print statement and I saw something happen in the console, I was hooked. It felt like an addiction. It felt like magic. It felt like I was in control. I felt like this was my ticket to success, freedom, and most importantly, getting my life back to the next level. Even though I felt behind in progress compared to my peers in the field of success/career due to mental illness, I knew programming could be my ticket back on top. It felt like my very own comeback story!

So began my long journey into learning code. And I'll tell you what, immediately the next day, things began getting more difficult and my brain began to hurt in ways it never had before. It felt like it was going to explode out of my head. But, I kept persisting and kept simply staring at the screen and gave my brain no choice but to figure out the problem it was looking at. And low and behold, somehow, someway, I stuck with coding and a year and a half later, I'm working on an appointment setting App to sell to local small businesses. All the meanwhile, getting closer to achieving my digital nomad goal.

Now I'm here, on Wyzant, looking to help others. In the last year and a half, I've made more progress self-teaching then most people do in double that in college. When you're forced to teach yourself, it changes things, because you know the onus is on you. However, getting help from friends who became mentors in coding made a huge difference as I was able to get unstuck on problems that plagued me for hours, days and sometimes weeks. I’m here to help basic students who are just getting into programming as well as intermediate students in Python and Django. I believe what makes me different then other teachers is that I'm someone who wasn't 'supposed' to become a programmer, but I did anyways. I'm very good at self-teaching and ultimately that's how one can speed up their learning time in development as there's so much to learn and you can't just go to a class or a bootcamp and expect to learn everything in the classroom. To me, it's not about how good I am in coding, it's about how good I am at getting the knowledge I have into my student's head that counts. I strive to give my student's the best experience possible. That's where I come in.

About Matthew
Hello! I am a 22 year old from Central Massachusetts and have a passion for all things computers! I got into programming in High School and decided that was what I wanted to do with my life. So I went to UMass Amherst and got a degree in Computer Science as well as in Business and graduated with a 3.8 GPA.

I have created several applications and primarily am good at teaching Java but also know a fair bit about Python and C# (used for making games)! I have always had a passion for teaching others to program and love to see the reaction of people when they finally have that aha moment with it! It really is not too difficult to understand and with enough commitment anyone can do it!

If you are interested in learning programming I would love to guide you through the process of learning the very basics and get you set up to make some app
lications of your own!
