About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn how to open up and knuckle down at the same time!

I am currently a full-time YouTube Creator, sidelining in cover bands and a solo act. Teaching is a big part of what I do online so I see my work as a private teacher as 'research' for the lessons I create. Although I'm firmly grounded in a classical music training, there's nothing you can ask about that I won't try to figure out. My favorite thing about teaching is using unexpected questions to develop new ideas that I then integrate into my original compositions. Check out my intro to the B

lues Raga video if you want to hear a good story about what I mean.

Recently I've had several articles published by the TakeLessons Blog. Check out my most recent post here.

About Tamari (Tamara)

Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment

to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I attended Indiana University's distinguished Jacob School of Music where I earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults. Within the 10 most recent years, I served as Music Director in Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian and Lutheran Churches, as it is my firm conviction that Music is a universal language which can help deepen the prayer experience while helping to bring comfort and joy.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Tamara is a very highly qualified, and extremely capable musician and instructor. While away on a leave from my position as music director at a local church, Tamara planned and provided the music for services, and led the congregation's music programs in my absence. While I was away, it was a great comfort to know that Tamara provided quality music for each service. In addition to demonstrating an extraordinary level of musicianship, Tamara is a dependable, and dedicated professional. I am pleased to provide my strongest recommendation!

About José

Hello,

My name is José, I am from Spain and I am really excited to be your next Spanish teacher. I have been teaching for a long time and I am currently very involved in the design of teaching materials too. I will adapt and design personalized classes according to your needs.

I have been teaching for 4 years and I have ample experience with different age range. Whether you have to prepare for you high school exams or to pass those college classes I am here to help you.

I am a certified teacher from Spain. I majored in English in college and after that I got a M.A. in Education and Spanish teaching for foreigners.

Since then, I have worked for different institutions such as high schools in Spain, Middlebury programs, IES study abroad programs, and I am currently working as a language instructor at Pomona College.

I am passionate ab

out languages and I always try to keep up with the current language learning methodologies in order to offer the best to my students. For this reason, I not only became fluent in English but I learnt (and keep learning) German, French and Italian.

I believe that developing a good atmosphere and helping the students get over the fears of making mistakes is a key factor in language learning, and I will make sure to bring that to our lessons.

Best Spanish teacher ever!!!
Cuando empezé a tener clases con José mi nivel de español como segunda lengua era intermedio, pero quería mejorar mi vocabulario académico para expresarme de manera más formal en el entorno universitario y José me ayudó a conseguirlo!
Trabajamos sobre todo con artículos y ensayos que él iba seleccionando para cada clase sobre temas específicos y su método se basaba sobre todo en la práctica y en la conversación, así que la clase no resultaba nunca aburrida!
Además, la experiencia con él fue interesante porque añadía curiosidades y anédoctas que me ayudaron a comprender muchos aspectos de la cultura española.

Highly recommended!

José is a fantastic Spanish language teacher. I have had him as an instructor in a university setting for two years. He is patient, insightful, and creative in his teaching methods, always keeping students engaged. He has taught me a lot about Spanish popular culture, both thematically and linguistically. He has also provided an appropriate balance of correction and encouragement: he helps me not feel embarrassed about my speaking, while simultaneously correcting my errors as I go. Five stars.

I would highly recommend Jose. He was very patient with me as I decided to start studying Spanish again at Uni in the US. He actually helped me correct my accent and my grammar very quickly. I appreciated the fact that he was a very open person and that he was also willing to adapt the level of English and Spanish for me as Spanish is a 3rd language for me (I'm French). Really nice and reliable person, I will take more lessons with him.

"Pantelis is an enthusiastic, encouraging, and experienced teacher. I like that he is helping me to establish a strong foundation in grammar - something t
hat earlier teachers failed to do. I like that he has flexible hours and is easily accessible if I have questions during the week.

He quickly gauged my skill level and adjusted the pace of his lessons accordingly.

He has provided a number of excellent online resources, some of which he is helping to develop. I am very pleased with the resources and the lessons."

5 Things Your Spanish Teacher Never Told You

By Suzy S.

Want to learn a new language? If you took a Spanish class in high school or college, you may have faint memories of simple vocabulary words and Día de los Muertos parties. But Spanish can be much more than just a language elective in school. Read on as Carmichael, CA Spanish tutor Joan B. explains...   Spanish teachers relish the times when their students have “aha” moments; seeing students putting together all of the grammar, vocabulary, and colloquial understanding of the languag …
