I am a published photographer, a professional musician with an international acclaim and a published writer.

The reason all of these arts are synergistic together is because they are all about the inner vision and the capture of something magical. This magic is invisible to these who pass by in a rush.

Photography has been a love of mine since childhood as I took images with a fully manual camera in black and white without a range finder or auto focus lens. I still love the visceral experience.

My published photographs both on line as well as in galleries have been met with approval both in the media as well as by the established authorities. The director of Eastman House has picked one of my larger images of nature as one of his favorites. My specialty is street photography and the expressive moments of animals interacting with people. I do like portraiture which has been selected as an honorable win by photographic associations and printed in concert programs for ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.

Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.

I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Online or In-Person Oil Painting Lessons with Las Vegas, Nevada based Carolyn K. are for beginner thru intermediate level artists who have never been taught, or perhaps never mastered, a step-by-step way of approaching painting whether it be in oils or acrylics.
Carolyn has a unique, fun and easy way of interacting with students and conveying information, sure to delight students! She feels strongly that a solid, organized structure is the surest way to achieve the success of a completed work. It is the difference between artists who can become prolific and those that accomplish few pieces in their lifetime with most works becoming abandoned out of lack of an approach to completion.

About Carolyn

I am absolutely passionate about oil painting!! If you want a teacher with passion and zeal, supportive, encouraging, and kind...I'm your gal!! I really care about your success and encouraging you to remain a life long student and lover of art!

My regular art classes were canceled due to COVID-19, but a friend knew someone who was taking some some private classes online with Carolyn and I decided to try it out. Now that I have, I think it's much better than being a single face among many! I'm improving so much with the one-on-one feedback and suggestions that I'm getting and Carolyn is such a kind, funny, and personable woman that I don't feel intimidated at all, even though my skills aren't where I'd like them to be. She's also extremely flexible with scheduling - with the shelter-in-place orders and with kids in the house 24/7, I can't always meet at the same time every session, but she lets me choose what works best for me which is another thing I don't get with regular classes. I'll definitely continue taking classes with her even after life returns to normal. Thanks Carolyn!

Drawing is essential to becoming a skilled artist. Careful observation, practicing dividing light and dark, hand-eye-pencil coordination, and learning basic shapes and forms will all vastly improve the more information you soak in. How many times have we heard someone say "I couldn't draw a stick figure." Well, it's just not true that those of us who were not born with innate talent can never make works of art of the highest quality. It just takes time and work. The more information we acquire, the brighter the light bulb will go off in our heads.

I've created a 20 minute lesson option so that our first meeting we can chat about your existing supplies and work area. For lessons after our initial meeting, and after you have acquired the necessary materials, then we'll need a full hour for demos, exercises, and art history.

These lessons will address principles of composition in photography, as well as learning the exposure principle to be able to apply correct camera settings.

A link to an interactive camera setting tool will be provided for the students to practice on their own time.

At the end of the lesson, students will receive an exposure cheat sheet. The list can be stored on a smartphone and consulted any time anywhere while shooting.

Minimum requirements for enrolling in this class:

1 - Because every lesson is customized to address each students' unique circumstances and needs in the field of photography, students must provide information on which camera they will be using PRIOR to purchasing lessons.
However, the photography lessons are NOT intended for going over the brand/model-specific camera manuals, nor for teaching where to find the brand/model-specific camera features. Student candidates are advised to research and study this type of information PRIOR to enrolling in the ...

Ana is absolutely amazing; I explained that I am a slow learner and she went through Photoshop steps with extremely clear instruction at my own pace, making sure I understand the concepts, not just memorizing steps. Also sent me links to instructional videos to prepare for my class. Among the best instructors I have ever had in my life.

Very helpful and I learned a lot during my first lesson in Photoshop.

She knows so much about photography! It was great learning from her.

Secondly, Eileen knows all kinds of techniques and was really good at settIng up exercises that were simple (not overwhelming or stressful) but still allowed a lot of room for me to experiment with color and brushwork."
