Patricia is also a member of bassist Michael Formanek's Ensemble Kolossus, a large jazz ensemble featuring brilliant improvisers and instrumentalists.

Patricia is an AMAZING teacher.

Personality: She is very welcoming, warm, funny and just a positive person to be around which bodes very well when it comes to learning and stepping outside of your comfort zone.

Knowledge: Just by looking at her credentials you know that she has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to music. However, her greatest gift is being able to relay all of that information to someone who may not have a very strong musical background. She is also very adept at making connections making the learning process fun and understandable.

Lessons: I have been taking lessons with Patricia for months now for voice. The greatest part of the lessons are that she does not only focus on improving your voice on a technical level. She helps with mental preparation, ear training, music theory and great deal of other things which helps students to become more well rounded. I believe this also helps students to grow in their area of study much faster.

Misc: Patricia greatly encourages her students to perform. If you are not comfortable going to an open mic, Patricia hosts a performance event for her students. This provides a safe and secure environment for students to express themselves an apply what they have learned in lessons.

I recently performed and while nervous the mental preparation that I described above helped me to "put on a show". I will continue taking lessons with Patricia and I am grateful for everything I have learned and experience in my time.

Patricia is an excellent teacher for all levels. I have worked with her teaching three year old beginner drum group classes, all the way to masterclasses for college students at CUNY on techniques to use when improvising in complex time signatures. She can teach anyone! Patricia makes the lessons fun all the while you gain inspiration. I also really enjoyed the concert she hosted for her students in the Village. Sign up, you won't be disappointed.

Whether you want it for travel in Latin America, or because you live in an area with lots of native Spanish-speakers, I can help you build your vocabulary and fundamental knowledge of grammatical concepts!
I use a variety of methods, though my teaching is heavily conversation based. I believe conversation needs the foundation for all languages; everything else will fall into place once you learn how to actually express yourself aloud. I also teach using literature/stories/poetry written in the language of focus.
If this is your first time learning a foreign language, Spanish will be your gateway! (And I will be your guide).

About Malka
Hello Potential Students!
I can't wait to start working with you! I know from experience that a good student/teacher relationship is the key for success, so I approach my teaching with positivity, flexibility, and the firm belief that everyone has innate intelligence waiting to be uncovered and harnessed.

I offer my students humor, support and my own expertise in a variety of subjects relating to the field including audition advice, tips on controlling performing nerves, help with diction, text interpretation, and much more! I believe the student/teacher relationship should be based on trust and mutual respect, and that is what I offer.

I have a BA in Scenic Arts from the National School of scenic Arts in Caracas Venezuela.
The dynamic of my lessons are art based.

About Oscar
As a Director, my proposal always takes a reflection on the text as starting point: an analytical commitment to the author's language as it comes expressed in its structure and stylistic features. In the sense I illustrate it, it means to exert an interpretative freedom within the boundaries of what Roland Barthes called the semantic plural of a text.

Given a special interest in the experimentation through language I have restrained the scope of my reflection to the so-called theater of the absurd. In my work on that genre I have set as an aesthetic goal, to bring what was thought as a mainly dialogistic and situational language, to a higher level of semiotic interplay. In that regard, my aim is to integrate entire scenic materials (including lighting, set, and more abstract element such as rhythm) as intrusive and/or commentate resour
ces to the sources given within the text itself.

I have never been worried about plots that give an illusion that one "understands" just because the plot imposes an order that is similar to life; where the word "dramatic development" is implicit, creating a unique sensation for the spectators. As Luciano Berio said about his splendid music, "the experience of not being completely sure of what one listens to, should be considered inseparable to the work." That's to say, not all have to be comprehended by the spectator. And as a dramatist friend says, "sometimes, not even the author, who writes, understands." It is about leaving marks, milestones, footsteps that bring a hidden sense, leaving a perceptible and therefore, terrible, ineffable image. A teacher I had at the university said in class, "Art is not about questions and answers, Art is

En Colombia cantamos, ven, cante conmigo!

In Colombia we sing when we talk, not really but thats what we say. My favorite language is my first and I'd love to teach a natural and accessible tongue.

About Johan
To me, there are few things that are more rewarding then seeing someone take on a new idea and make it their own.
I am primarily a musician, working in the city but find that teaching others both the language of music and my native tongue, Spanish, are a fascinating and positive way to give back to my community.
Creativity, honesty, and patience are the pillars I work off of; and I know full well that each person requires something different of me, so I will always work towards tailoring the learning process to you and your needs.

Stamford, CT

After having studied French first, Spanish was not so difficult for me to learn. Please note that formal Spanish taught in the classroom is not necessarily the language used in everyday communication. I can help you with vocabulary, grammar, and understanding different Spanish accents.

About Michael
When helping students, it my belief that patience and belief in the student's abilities are of utmost importance. With this in mind, I am here to guide you through your stumbling blocks and propel you to another level of understanding that makes things a lot clearer for you.

I have experience tutoring students from high school to college level. At different times in my life I acquired two bachelors degrees; one in music, the other in biochemistry. It is important for you to know that I take your education seriously but it can be interspersed with a little humor; not too much, but enough to keep things interesting.

In addition to helping students, I have worked as a professional freelance musician and as a research biochemist. Whether it be one on one or in a group setting, my experiences have taught me to be very patient, flex
ible, and accommodating, I have provided music lessons to promising young musicians in addition to training graduate students.

Whether you be a traditional high school student or a non-traditional adult student, my ultimate goal is to help you gain a better understanding of your material with patience and encouragement in a safe learning environment. Let's get you on the road to some awesome grades. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become a better student.

About Sheila
Hello and welcome! I would like to start of by saying I was a former Pastry Chef working in various cuisines; French, Italian and American are my top favorite. I was often pulled out of my work filed to help out with translating for those who were unable to communicate. This is why I would like to being in helping spread the Spanish language to those who want to liberally travel or come up to anybody and strike up a most engaging lovely conversation. Spanish is not complicated but in fact fun; it can take a little bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it; there's no stopping you!
