About Omar
My passion is sharing music with people.

I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio production as well. Feel free to ask me questions, and expect informative non-judgmental answers.

I have spent a lot of time developing as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer, which helps me in all aspects of my music and teaching, I'm always looking to learn more. I have played in heavy metal bands, but have also done solo acoustic singer/songwriting stuff, I have produced raw hip-hop but also love old soul and ska tunes. Being well rounded musically and drawing from lots of influences is what makes me a good teacher and shapes me as a m
usician.

As an artist I have been featured on MTV, Rollingstone, BBC, NBC, VOA, ARY, Alt Press, LA times, documentaries and more. I have been playing guitar and recording music since childhood and am a classically trained sitar player and Indian classical vocalist.

I am a great teacher for someone who wants to write songs, or is into Indie, rock, pop, reggae, metal, hip-hop, and electronica.

*** Lesson Details/ What to Expect ***

You can expect a custom, fun and attentive one on one lesson. I am thorough and patient. I expect you to love music and put forth effort. I'm laid back, I will work as fast or as slow as you need. I prefer a total immersion technique and get my students playing right away. This boosts confidence and fosters interest because once a student enjoys playing you don't have to convince them to practice.

By the first lesson you will be familiar with the instrument and it's parts, and playing your first chord.

In 3-6 months you will be playing guitar with a greater knowledge of chords, basic harmony and be able to play scales and songs.

Once you have a foundation of chords we can explore more specific music subjects and lessons will become more personalized: songwriting, guitar tones, musicology, making a DIY record, shredding like a metalhead, I can guide you to help you achieve your goals.

I receive a very large number of student requests everyday, So to keep things organized please keep the following in mind:

Takelessons is a wonderful service that I use to handle all my payments and scheduling. I want to focus on the teaching, so they help with the rest.

I have a 24 hour cancelation policy, please give me at least 24 hour advanced notice, or you will forfeit your lesson credit.

All scheduling changes or time off can be requested right from the website for your connivence. it's super easy!

Use an email that you will actually check to sign up for notifications, it's not spam, it's to help us all stay organized.

Remember to please reserve your spot by paying in advance. (I have a waiting list of people asking me for those super convenient days, and times)

Online students please make sure you have the highest connection speed available to you. This will ensure you get the most out of the lessons.

*** Equipment ***

Please make sure you have your own instrument, and a note book or device to take notes with.

I am trained in piano, but never had any guitar or ukulele experience prior to meeting Omar. Omar figured out my aspirations and skill level in no time and got me strumming songs in less than 4 weeks. Now I lull my kids to sleep with my ukulele and they sing along.

I am well pleased with my artwork! She was able to capture details in her drawing that I overlooked each time I looked at myself. I am now looking for other pictures for her to draw and paint for me, thank you!

About Alexis
Born in Brooklyn, New York I began drawing around the age of five with pencil and paper, which later evolved into an all-digital workflow. I created animatics, illustrations and storyboards for Adidas, Boost Mobile, Discovery Channel and HBO. In 2010, I moved to Los Angeles where I've since illustrated for the Disney Channel, the NFL, Nissan, and Red Bull.

I began teaching in 2007 and love seeing students evolve. I conduct my customized lessons online or in the comfort of your own home or office to move at your pace and level of experience. I provide easy to follow methods to bring your creativity to life, so I look forward to helping you become a better artist and storyteller!

My teaching philosophy is an adaptation developed from years of being a student, working in the field, and from experience as an instructor. I hope to provide an environment where students can progress from one task to the next with a positive result. I want my students to be able to accomplish their goals and expectations for each class. Students should retain what was taught, understand, and embrace-based on their classroom encounter with me as their instructor.

About Joseph
I am a commercial and wedding photographer based out of the Philadelphia area. I am a 2006 graduate of the Antonelli Institute of Art and Photography. I have received multiple awards for my work in the commercial, sports and wedding fields. My images have graced the covers of international publications like Sports Illustared and The Blood Horse. As a commercial photographer I have shot for companies such as: Brother, Lenox, Blanco, Hilton and Sotheby’s to name a few.

My career has mainly been centered around the commercial word, meaning, I shoot mostly for companies. My average work week can include shooting anything from products, like printers, bedding or fine china, to capturing an image of a CEO or Board of directors! On the weekends you will often find me hanging out with a bridal party shooting award winning wedding images!

My s
tudents will enjoy my energy, fun loving nature and ability to break down complicated subject matter into simplistic ideas. I will tailor our classes to your specific skill level as well as to what your photography goals are long term.
