I am a Deaf fluent communicator, instructor, and performer in ASL. I founded Loud n Clear Musik to teach music and sign language to both the hearing and the Deaf world. ASL lessons can also be taken for art, music, and ministry purposes. My lessons are for students of all kinds to help them better communicate, understand, and connect with the Deaf friends, families, community, customers & clients, and peers. I communicate in ASL non-stop with all Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and Deaf-Blind. I can teach you ASL effectively, fitting your level with ease, and with lots of fun!! I also communicate (and speak) very well in two other languages: English and Spanish. I can teach individually or teach a class.

The lessons can be Intro/Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced. Your lessons will be planned according to your needs. For example, Basic Lessons will consist of learning the fingers and coordination exercises, alphabets, numbers, basic signs and communication for friends, family & relatives, ...

I've been teaching American Sign Language for 5 years, and signing myself for 18 years, and my students have gone on to develop a love for ASL, Deaf people, and Deaf culture. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to carry on a simple conversation in the language, and as time goes on you'll be able to feel totally at ease with Deaf people. I have great online tools you can use for free to practice between lessons, and I'm flexible with any other resources we use. I can't wait to meet you!

Working with Carla has been incredible! I had a minimal amount of ASL experience before starting lessons and Carla has helped me learn so much in such a short amount of time. She's wonderful at helping you to incorporate what she's teaching into conversations so you can practice using and understanding signs.

I was able to use my short 4 weeks of private lessons on a recent trip where I was able to have a lovely conversation with a member of the deaf community - thanks to Carla.

I look forward to continuing on and developing a much deeper understanding of ASL!

About Ariel L.

Hello, my name is Ariel and I am hoping to be your next ASL teacher. I am immersed in the ASL language everyday which has allowed me to become fluent. As I continue to increase my knowledge in ASL, I have become efficient in teaching this great language to others.

Why should you take lessons with me?
First, I work at the pace of the student, consider your goals, and your strengths/ limitations. Every lesson will be custom-made for you only. Second, I have received training and teachings from professors and interpreters from College and Universities. Therefore, I am trained to be familiarized with different settings and subjects, such as medical, educational, astronomy, computer/technology, and law.

I am dedicated to teach ASL to every student ready to learn. I am very eager to teach you this extremely unique and amazing language. I am also eager to meet you and begin our learning adventure!

I love learning from Purnima! Not only a I getting fully immersed in language, I get to learn about Deaf culture. Purnima makes learning vocabulary easy, and takes the time to answer questions if something doesn't makes sense. She is so sweet and kind, and I would recommend any classes with her.
