We will start on fundamentals of letter structure, color theory and composition. I will introduce the tools and how to properly implement visual effects and techniques using those tools onto the students desired media of choice.

We will progress from the basics of drawing techniques all the way to painting on larger canvas and possibly walls.

Paint and supplies must be made available by the student.

Charles is the perfect teacher to learn guitar , very understanding and down to earth makes you feel comfortable in learning the guitar
annabelle J.
Charles has been my teacher for a few weeks now and I am so happy I found him on takelessons. He is an amazing guitar player but also an amazing teacher, he always comes prepared and the class is well organized. He is also open to hearing suggestions to learn your favorite songs. He is very encouraging which gives the motivation to keep going which is so important for a beginner. I am already seeing great progresses after only a few weeks, and I can't wait for more lessons this year. Highly recommend him if you are looking to get started with the guitar! You will really enjoy learning with him, he is also a very cool and fun guy so you can learn in a nice environment, whether it is in his studio at his place, at your place or online.
Gaurav Jung Pande
I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better.

With a degree in English Literature I have studied English and British Literature my entire academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals/motifs of the piece, and inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on what you are studying or reading.

Since 2017 I have been assisting students with both American and British Literature in standard college prep high school classes, AP courses, core college courses, as well as advanced Bachelors and Masters level courses.

Nick worked absolutely miracles with my very-reluctant-to-learn 13 year old boy. He kept him engaged and built a real relationship of trust - and helped my son grow as a writer, reader, and editor. I absolutely recommend Nick as a fantastic teacher and tutor.

As a member of the Pierce Quartet I regularly arrange and perform music for weddings and other special occasions. I love sharing classical music with all levels of students. Lessons with me are calm, meditative experiences where we use peaceful techniques to enter into the heart of music.

Fantastic first lesson!
My son is really excited for the next one.
Top notch!
Jennie
Lenna has been Leah’s teacher for over 2 years. She enjoyed cello through her school program, but wanted to push herself further and learn more solo work. Not only did she love her lessons, but she greatly improved. So much so she was just accepted into LaGuardia for cello! Lenna — even virtually during COVID— encouraged Leah and inspired her to do her best. Needless to say it’s such a joy to see my teenager love to practice, look forward to playing with Lenna, and learning so much.

I'm a specialist in Brazilian Guitar and have played and used American Folk Styles to teach finger picking for many years. This includes Travis Picking, Blues and arrangement of all sorts of melodies for guitar. One of the first world musics I played was Irish music and I have a nice repertoire of these melodies to help the student learn how to play a linear melody. Reading is not necessary but I'm expert at getting people to read by using simple familiar music.

Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

Mary is very kind, friendly, understanding, and polite. She is extremely encouraging, and believes in her students! It is usually very hard for me to push past my limits, but with Mary I felt much more confident to do so! But she knows when to tell you to stop. She is very clear, and I learned a lot from her.
