About Jesse

*Disclaimer*
I'm currently not taking beginner students on voice/singing, guitar, bass, drums, piano, and ukulele. I highly recommend my studio partners Melissa though. Please check out her profile:

https://takelessons.com/profile/melissa-m62

My Background

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 Area.

Since 2006 I have been an active teacher. This profession has taken me everywhere from working with classical guitar cla

sses 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.

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. It's really important to know though that everyone makes their own experience. The process of learning music involves you learning as much about your own mind and body as it does any external concepts, so please keep in mind only you can move yourself forward.

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 opportunities to perform for friends and family at my studio every few months. Adult students also 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.

My studio is equipped with:

*Music Stands

*A P.A. System

*Vocal and instrument microphones

*Guitars, Basses, Ukulele, Banjos, etc

*Two guitar amps and a bass amp

*Various percussion including a fully equipped acoustic drum set

*A Roland V-Drums electronic drum set

*An electric piano console and Yamaha organ

*A MicroKorg Synthesizer

*A Tuba, Trombone, Cornet, Saxophone, and Flute

*An extensive physical and virtual music library

*A recording system that students are not only welcome to use but encouraged to

*HD Webcam and condenser microphone for high fidelity online lessons via Skype

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Just finished the first class on accent reduction with Michelle. She is AMAZING! She put herself in my shoes, trying to analyze the pronunciation pattern in my own language, encouraging me to take a moment to reward myself for the efforts and achievements along the English learning journey. Most importantly, she is professional d exceptional in interactive teaching. Thanks again Michelle.

I really enjoyed my lesson with Michelle. She is a great tutor with her special skill. The only reason I did not give her a 5 starts at this time is because I want to finish more sessions to truly give her a 5 star from bottom of my heart. I would love to continue my journey with her and I am faithful I will improve quickly with her help.

Completely bilingual German/English speaker with close to 20 years experience teaching and tutoring ESL to students from different cultural backgrounds. The goal is for students to be able to actively use the language and not be afraid to experiment. I integrate speaking, listening, reading and writing with authentic texts so students learn subject matter along with language. Classes are creative, fun and tailored to the student's needs. Understand the language learner's perspective as I am an immigrant, with a multicultural background.

About Annika

My first tutoring experience took place in first grade when I was asked to assist a newly arrived Vietnamese girl with her English. I myself had learned English when I first came to the United States at three years of age and could relate well to some of the issues the newcomer was facing.

A true global nomad, I have lived in Germany, the U.S., Mexico and Russia and have traveled extensively. Starting with English and German, and eventually Spanish, French and Russian, I have been instructing students since 1989 in various countries of a variety of ages in a multitude of informal and formal settings.

In 1990, I received my Bachelor of Arts in Russian Studies from George Mason University. In 1995, I completed my Masters Degree in Secondary Education/Teaching English as a Second Language. After one year of working in a public school

setting, I began teaching privately and on a freelance basis for a number of private companies and language schools, and the government.

I'm attempting the impossible - learning a new language! Annika makes the impossible feel possible. She is a really great teacher, has excellent suggestions for how to move forward. I like the text we work from, too. I highly recommend learning a new language from Annika!

About Brigitte

I graduated from Seattle Pacific University with two degrees in European Studies and Romance Languages. My studies also include time spent at the University of Salamanca in Spain, the American University of Paris, and John Cabot University in Rome. I also have a minor degree in History.

I spent one year working as an English composition and French tutor in the United States for two middle school students. In 2010, I moved to South Korea to teach English. I spent about four years teaching elementary and middle school students in after-school English academies. My students ranged from very beginning to upper-intermediate levels of English.

I also earned my TESOL certificate from the American TESOL Institute in Thailand. After leaving South Korea, I worked as an English camp counsellor in Italy and Wales for Italian elementary and middle

school students.

Since moving to France, I have mostly taught adults in a professional setting. My courses have focused on grammar, vocabulary, conversation, business English, and test preparation. I have experience preparing students for the BULATS exams and the TOEIC.

I have taught all kinds of classes over the past ten years, from reading activities with children to more advanced discussion topics with teenagers and professional English with adults.

As an experienced ESL instructor, lessons can range depending on your needs. My experience includes teaching academic English courses of beginning and intermediate levels for various skills (listening, reading, writing, vocabulary/literacy, and grammar).

I have also tutored English privately, focusing on one-on-one instruction. In these sessions, I have worked closely with students to isolate and improve weak spots in their pronunciation, taught collocations and expressions (conversational and academic English), and concentrated on listening practice.

My graduate level certification and extensive teaching background has prepared me to teach you, regardless of your goals for improving your English!

About Naomi

I am a performer and teacher, specializing in cello and English as a Second Language. I graduated with a bachelor and master degree in music performance (cello) from Ball State University (Indiana). While a student, I had a multitude of teaching experiences ranging from music theory, music history, ear training, and English as a Second Language.

For the past three years, I have taught beginning/intermediate cello students. My teaching experiences began at a non-profit community music camp, Music for the Sake of Music, in Green Bay, Wisconsin. During this experience, I found a passion for teaching beginning students because of the fundamental need to provide a solid foundation. These early teaching experiences also inspired my teaching philosophy. Students can expect to focus on technique while simultaneously working on challenging and

exciting repertoire. Although there is an emphasis on strong fundamentals, I strive to demonstrate the fun and beneficial qualities of studying music. Music should not be a chore but rather a source of creativity and enjoyment.

I am open to teaching students of all ages and levels, although the majority of my experience is in beginning and intermediate levels. I've studied the cello for 14 years. I have experience in tutoring music theory, sight-ear (ear training), and music history. Also, I have been certified through the National College Learning Center Association, completing training that emphasizes engagement of students. Through this training I've learned how to help students learn independently and overcome challenges through trial and error. In music, these skills foster efficient practice techniques that often lead to a quickly developed technique.

During my studies, I was also a classroom instructor of ESL. I taught academic English to university students with various proficiency levels. In these classes, I taught between 2-15 students. This experince strengthened my classroom management but also taught me how to prepare lesson plans catering to individual students. I have received a graduate level certification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and in doing so I have studied materials development, classroom assessment/creating assessments, and methodologies for teaching English as a second language. Lastly, I have tutored individuals in ESL, working closely to improve listening, speaking, and vocabulary.

As a performer, I have played in many regional orchestras throughout Indiana such as the Lafayette Symphony Orchestra, Muncie Symphony Orchestra, and Kokomo Symphony Orchestra. I also have experience performing outside of a classical setting, especially in recording. In previous years I have recorded on pop albums for independent artists and composers. My most notable experience includes recording with Tony Award winning actress and singer, Sutton Foster on her newest album Take Me to the World.

Studying music is not about achieving perfection; it is about creativity and joy and obtaining skills that transfer to numerous fields. I look forward to meeting you and helping you develop a wide variety of skills that will enrich many parts of your life.

The #1 Tip on How to Ace the IELTS

The International English Language Testing System (also known as the IELTS) is recognized worldwide as the most popular English proficiency exam. Millions of people from around the globe take the IELTS every year, and unfortunately, many of them do not pass. There is one trait, however, that everyone who successfully completes the IELTS has in common. It’s something you might not expect. Our friends at Magoosh describe it in one word: confidence.
