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!
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.
I've been tutoring individuals, small businesses, and corporate employees to become proficient in using their computers and applications since 1985, and I can help you do the same. I have the experience to help you learn all about Microsoft Windows, and Microsoft Office applications (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook).
I'm very patient and I pace all my lessons at the learning speed of my student - as fast or slow as they need so they don't feel overwhelmed. Naturally, it takes a few times practicing the usage before someone feels confident, but I can help you become proficient in using your applications. I enjoy teaching people about their computers, and it makes me happy to see them become proficient in using their applications.
Hi! My name is David M. and I'm studying a degree in Computer Science. I'm in the last year so I hope that next year I will graduate.
All the assignments that I had to do in the previous years have showed me that programming isn't an ability for only a few people. If you have the correct attitude, motivation and see how it can change your life and the life of other people, you will learn easily all the keys to be a successful programmer.
In my classes I pretend to give this knowledge for my students and I believe that the world could be efficient, sustainably and better if we know how to control technology and use them with goodness, instead of letting technology control us.
I have advanced knowledge in C, C++, Java and Python that I have been learning for years so I can teach you from the basics to an expertise level.
learned in deep Java while I was developing an app in Android, so I can help you if you want to know about making apps with Android Studio and more.
In addition, I have deep understanding in less known languages that implement programming paradigms that are very useful for solving certain type of problems: • Haskell (functional programming) • Prolog, CLIPS (declarative programming and SAT)
Finally, I know about efficient algorithm techniques (greedy, dynamic programming, flow networks); some AI techniques like local and heuristic search and compiler concepts (ANTLR, grammars).
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any doubt or you want to know if I can help you with other topic.
This was my first time using Take Lessons and my experience with David is very recommendable. He knows how to teach to a beginner all the small details with very patience and it helped me a lot. He talks in a very comfortable and understable way and he demonstrate that he's a highly skilled developer. I would definitely reserve another lesson with him.
are specifically designed for the student and I change the teaching style on a case-by-case basis, it is absolutely necessary to merge the experiences of the student into the curriculum and translate those experiences into code with examples.
Experienced teacher of 5 years, specializing in the beginner/intermediate python student! All ages welcome. Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. Not only will you be getting trained in python in no time, but you will be building a strong portfolio and projects too, python training, data science,ML technique, and more. Let's get started!
Experienced Instructor and Software Engineer. Total 10+ Years of experience in the software industry. My tutoring career started 10 years ago when I became the person that my colleagues reach when they don't understand something in programming and computer-related subjects. I've been known in the college as the person that explain computer programming in an easy and smooth way and since then I did not stop teaching (> 1500 hours taught).
For the last 10 years, I worked mainly as a Software Engineer for many companies (some of them are multinationals) and in parallel, I taught many computer sciences and programming courses on a part-time basis; so I have both the practical market experience and the tutoring talent and experience as well.
I also completed a post-graduate diploma in software development skills and I have a masters degre
e from Istanbul University. I'm specialized - and built many software systems in - C, C++, Java SE, PHP, and Android SDK.
I enjoy using my intelligence for uplifting and important work. Helping others to help them achieve their dreams is satisfying. I love to learn and so I love to teach, because by teaching I get to learn even more! I look forward to growing along with you as you progress in this field.
"Etana was great, very understanding and patient with me. Who says you can't teach an old dog a new trick! Anyhoo I'm excited of the possibilities over the
next few lessons."
"I have only had one lesson, but it was great. Cindy is very nice and easy to follow. Very detailed. Looking forward to the next one!"
"This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can
't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!"
"Easy to work with and very responsive"

"Alex is a great instructor. He helped me understand certain areas of php that I really needed help in. He did so, in an easy to understand way and I now k
now and understand the material."
"Etana is a great teacher in addition to being an expert at WordPress. Highly recommend!"
