Learn how to learn English, have fun, and accomplish more than you would in a class.
I'm currently not taking beginner students on guitar, bass, drums, piano, or ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Andrew and Melissa though. Please check out their profiles for the following topics:

I've been playing with classical ensembles and rock bands since 2001. Even though I started on classical trombone and rock guitar, I have come to expand my repertoire to a variety of instruments and genres. During my time in college I performed with the University choir, orchestra, and band. I also have organized, wrote/arranged for, and performed with a variety of bands in my home state of New Mexico, as well as Japan, and the San Francisco Bay Are
Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar classes in New Mexico high schools to Elementary students in Japan to a variety of private students of various musical instruments and genres everywhere I've been. Since relocating to the Bay Area in 2010, I've had the pleasure of working with lots of great students from kids to adults with a wide range of ambitions. Since 2012 I've been running my own full time studio along.
Philosophy of Learning
Lessons are generally designed to work towards giving students the tools to accomplish their goals and become increasingly independent over time. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. What kind of music do you want to make? I'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.
I also love to help students put together a song, record, and produce it for them so that they can have a recording to share with their friends and family.
I also hold events for my students. (Check out our pictures and videos below!)
Younger students have the "Young Musicians Showcase" every few months where individual students and band classes have a chance to perform and celebrate their accomplishments with friends and family.
Adult students occasionally have events where they get a chance to get together and play music as well.
Aside from in-studio lessons, students also have the option to sign up for online lessons via Skype.
(*Online lessons offered during different times than in-studio lessons.)
*Unfortunately due to scheduling issues, I'm not currently accepting students for bi-weekly lessons. I can do regular weekly lessons, or occasional drop-in lessons, but bi-weekly appointments make it really hard for me to give the best scheduled times to my existing weekly students. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

*Multiple Music Stands
*Vocal and instrument microphones
*Guitars, Basses, and a Banjo
*Two guitar amps and a bass amp
*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set
*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

I have taught ESL as a tutor and at an international language school for over five years and am a Speech-Language Pathologist, so I can also help with accent modification. Because I myself have studied several languages, I am able to relate to my students frustrations in learning another language.
I graduated with my Master of Arts in Speech-Language Pathology with Highest Honors at Queens College, which only accepts four percent of applicants. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Pittsburgh Honors College on a Full Tuition Honors College Scholarship with a double major in French and Italian Language and Literature. I graduated with a 4.0 GPA. Last year, I scored above the 93rd percentile on my GRE Verbal and Writing sections. In high school, I scored above the 98th percentile on the SAT/ACT Verbal sections. I graduated high school with a 4.0 GPA from all AP and honors classes.
I am a speech-language pathologist with experience teaching children and adults various areas of language. Additionally, I have been tutoring a range of other subjects for over f
I tailor my lessons to each student I teach and to his or her individual learning styles. I am friendly, patient and not intimidating: three qualities that I personally find important in a tutor. I truly love teaching and meeting new students. I find that I always learn from my students when I teach as well! During our first lesson together, we can discuss your goals and create an academic plan personalized to your needs. I look forward to working with you!

Want to improve your English language skills? I am here to help you! I have ten years experience as an ESL professional. In that time, I have taught all levels and all ages from 4-year-olds attending school for the first time to adult professionals needing English proficiency for promotion at work. My classes have centered around conversation, reading comprehension, and written skills.
My goal is to make lessons that are both fun and interactive. It is important to me that my students enjoy themselves while we are studying together, as this is one of the best ways to learn!
I am more than willing to work with your schedule, as mine is very flexible. I'm looking forward to helping you reach your learning goals!

I have experience coaching friends with little or no knowledge of English. I especially enjoy coaching students whose language I do not speak, as this approximates best their everyday conversations with people they encounter in the US.
I enjoy talking about practical everyday life situations in an unstructured format, always considering the student's most pressing needs. Part of our work together may be accompanying the student on shopping trips, obtaining a driver's license, enrolling in a course, looking for an item in the library, etc.
I have a multicultural background, and can carry conversations in several languages. I have traveled to 77 countries and have visited Asia and Latin America countries on 200 occasions. I have lectured at the university level (graduate and undergraduate) and to managers worldwide.
Often, recent immigrants are puzzled even by simple questions. They become afraid to engage with Americans, and may retreat to the safety of their ethnic group and never learn English. I will teach you to listen better and understand more. You will learn simple words and sentences to make yourself understood.
We will test how you are doing by doling some everyday things you need to do: shopping, asking for help, getting directions. I may not speak more than a few words of your language. That is an advantage because it simulates what you encounter everyday. You will gain confidence in just a few days. I have seen it happen with several friends I have coached.

caring person, and she always has new ideas about how to improve. She also pays attention for her students personal interests and prepares individual materials for each lesson."
I am Japanese. Although a Japanese sentence can be translated to English in a grammatically correct way and English speakers can understand it, often the sentence does not resemble native English. Maggie helps advanced learners understand how certain words carry various emotions and create a certain ambience. She believes that native-like fluency cannot be attained through translation and gave me tools to break the habit and develop a more intuitive approach to language learning.
Maggie has great enthusiasm for teaching each student well. Her lessons were systematic and she clearly explained grammar and style points. She used not only textbooks, but also many materials which made her lessons much more fun! That’s why I liked her lessons so much.
I believe you would have a wonderful experience studying with Maggie.
Working with her would be one of the fastest ways to improve your English language skills."
Maggie is absolutely one of those who made this possible: she was one of my teachers, and she was simply great! She helped me so much in those months, and I really enjoyed following her classes. I think she is a brilliant, naturally gifted educator, enthusiastic and accurate. She is professional, serious, and her methods are simple and effective. She can always find ways to make things easier, even the most difficult ones (grammar for example!), so that meanings/concepts/rules would become clear and fixed in our mind.
She is also a very nice and generous person, always available to help: she cared so much about our education, making sure nobody was left behind, and every time I needed some extra explanations, she was always there to give more information, making examples taken from the everyday life, using tricks, songs, newspaper articles, connecting so theory to practice.
My English and I owe her a lot, and I’m sure your experience with her will be as enjoyable and rewarding as mine!"
