About Perry
Hello!

My name is Perry and I am a professional classical, flamenco and electric guitarist performing and recording in the Dallas area. I studied with Robert Guthrie at SMU for many years, as well as Brad McLemore of "Soul Food Cafe" and professional jazz musician Chuck Pangburn at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts.

I am familiar with all styles of guitar from fingerpicking to Bebop/Swing. I teach using a foundation in classical/flamenco style and technique. I have found that for my own career as a recording artist in both the classical, acoustic and electric guitar fields that the classical/flamenco styles are the most useful for developing and training the hands to become a consummate professional.

I teach beginner to advanced students of any age. I also can provide pro and amateur electric g
uitarists an in-depth study of correct hand postures and left-hand/right-hand technique which can help to refine their overall technique and stylistic approach. I can also advise professional electric guitarists on their electronics, effects pedals, and amplifiers to achieve their own individual sound. I also teach Bass, and reading the Bass clef.

My teaching specialties include: Solfeggio, Sight Reading, Music Theory, Scales and Modes, Left and Right Hand Technique, Blues Progressions, Jazz Standards the Classical Repertoire, Flamenco styles, techniques and repertoire, DADGAD and other alternate tunings, and the works of Sor, Giuliani, and Carcassi, Brouwer, Aguado, Villa-Lobos, Sabicas, Paco de Lucia, Pat Martino, John Fahey, and Davey Graham.

I have an in-depth knowledge of the stylistic approaches and techniques of such guitarists as Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Randy Rhoads, Jimi Hendrix, Robert Fripp, Adrian Belew to name a few, and I can teach you the components they use to build their signature licks.

As a rule I only transcribe to give the students examples for lessons. I intend for all of my students to grow as musicians, so my lessons do not consist solely of transcribed solos and riffs.

I have a vast library of music, so I can draw from my own resources to teach you, or from a method of your choosing.

My schedule has a few openings right now. I do teach outside of my stated teaching radius, but ONLY at the 60 minute rate.

I teach people of all ages, from children to adults. I believe everyone is on an even keel, if they are willing and eager to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Emphasis on classical posture and technique.
Emphasis on sight-reading.
All students learn to play basic blues and jam
Technique varies depending on the particular style the student wishes to learn.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a limited number of learning materials such as exercises, listening or practicing CD on occasion. However, I feel that it is the student's responsibility to provide their own guitars, and the bulk of their own learning materials and necessary electronic equipment. This can include footstools, music stands, method books, amps, cables, pedals, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I've been playing guitar for 25 years, and this has given me the time to study, perform, and perfect many styles of guitar playing.

I studied classical and flamenco guitar with Robert Guthrie for 4 years before and after my studies in the SMU program. I've also played in jazz and rock ensembles since the age of 14. I studied with Chuck Pangburn, pro jazz cat, and Brad McLemore, an indie rock songwriter, early on in my studies as an adolescent.

I encourage most students to learn to play on a classical or nylon-string guitar early on in order to develop proper technique, posture, sensitivity, and sensibility. I also encourage all students to learn to sight-read at a very early point in their studies. Once, this hurdle is cleared many other challenges are easily surpassed.

Presently, I am developing a new method which incorporates solfeggio, blues and popular music forms, and improvisational playing. I also am exploring the vanguard of new guitar technology such as the Vo-96, analog effects, and various guitar synthesizers.

I try to introduce an understanding of music theory early on so that students develop a full comprehension of not only the written language of music, but also, the sonic language of music.

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

and imagery found online.

I love Mayra. She taught me a lot more than I thought in just one class. I have a painting that I will hang on my wall. Never thought one class would do that. She has great personality and great skills.

Mayra was very helpful. She had a challenge with us because we we're weren't sure exactly what we wanted to learn. Mayra worked with us and demonstrated some new techniques and ideas based on where we already were as (very amateur) artists. She was helpful, very encouraging, and easy to work with. Thank you!

Terrible experience. Couldn't connect online, 20 minutes after start time called him and he tried to assist, but ended up doing a "phone lesson" which consisted of a question and answer time where I had to come up with my own questions. To conclude we were told to go out and take some pictures on our own and learn from experimenting on our own taking pictures of all kinds of things. We could then download them, send to him, and he could critique.
Not what I expected. Not necessarily his fault, but Going to ask for refund

My experience with this teacher was great! She was very easy to talk to and she was very nice and straight to the point about each of the topics. She also talked about herself and what were my interest and goals that I wanted to get to with her lessons. I just wish that my screen could be shared like hers! So a tip! MAKE SUTE THAT YOU CAN SHARE YOUR SCREEN WITH THE TEACHER BEFORE THE LOSSON STARTS BECAUSE YOU’LL NEED IT... TRUST ME!!!!

About Emily
Greetings! Do you love to draw or paint either digitally or with traditional mediums? Do you or your kids love cartoons, anime/manga, or comics? How about figure drawing, or lovely nature landscapes? Drawing animals perhaps? How about portraits? Well, if you answered 'yes!' to any of these, then I'm the art teacher for you.

My name is Emily Cammisa, and I follow Bob Ross's philosophy that art is a pursued interest, and anyone who has that invested interest and willingness to practice the craft can get good at it. I've helped people of all ages go from saying "I can't even draw a stick figure!" to "I can't believe I did that!" as they proudly show me their work. I have a bachelor's degree in fine art from Skidmore College and 10 years experience with freelance illustration work and teaching. My goal is to share my love of art with you
and build your artistic skill level to wherever you want it to be. Whether it's just a hobby, or a potential career for you, I'm here to help.

What age groups do I teach, you ask? Well, I love teaching kids 5+ and adults alike how to draw and color like a professional artist. I also specialize in teaching people with autism. There's no better therapy than art; it truly is food for the soul. I also make my lessons very affordable and convenient by traveling to my student's homes with all the art supplies every week; rain, snow, or shine. I also teach at the College of Saint Rose every July, so I'm great with large groups in addition to doing private lessons.

Sound good? Great! Let's get drawing and painting. I look forward to bringing out the creativity in you (or your kids!)

Emily works with my son developing his drawing skills before he leaves for college to study digital animation. He really needed to work on illustration skills and Emily has been amazing! I can’t believe how quickly his skills are improving!! But more importantly to me is that my son enjoys the lessons. He is very comfortable working with Emily and his confidence has grown in the process! I can not speak highly enough about Emily as a teacher!! She has a very calm and supportive approach which is perfect for my son. My son does not drive so it is really convenient that she is willing to travel to my house for lessons!

My daughter first met Emily through a summer camp that she participated in. She came home excited and told me that we HAD TO take lessons from her! She has been taking drawing lessons from Emily for the past year and has grown so much in skill! Emily is a patient, kind and caring teacher. She really has a wonderful way of connecting with her students and is supportive of their art style. I would highly recommend Emily!

About Ira
I'm a former NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PHOTOGRAPHER and Fashion Photographer, shooting ads for major corporations. My ads for Revlon, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein and other famous brands have apeared in VOGUE, ELLE, INSTYLE and hundreds of other publications. I've also been a frequent guest speaker at major photographic events and trade shows, teaching advanced techniques to professionals.

I'm an expert in using Photoshop, including advanced retouching techniques, composites and layering. And I believe it's critical to master these skills to produce truly great photography, because even if you're not doing any retouching, you need to use these techniques to fine-tune your image and make it powerful.

Because I started as a photo-journalist and then went into fashion and advertising, I have a in-depth understanding of how to create strong, b
eautiful images in all of these areas. I've hung out of helicopters and airplanes shooting for National Geographic, and worked in New York City creating images for major ad campaigns.

If you want to improve your travel photography, portraits, shoot amazing product shots, or anything else, I can show you how to do it! I love sharing all the knowledge and techniques I've learned over the years to help make you the best photographer you can be!

I have loved taking photos since my first photography class in high school. I have photographed many different subjects, scenes, and moments all over the world. There's a picture around every corner and the best camera you have is the one that is in your hand. My Photos have been in Diesel magazine, featured on a Nat Geo's photographers page and in recent calendar publications. I shoots a Nikon, Canon and Sony systems and has been doing classes for about 4 years with great reviews.
