*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz

Currently taking lessons with Matthew after extensive search due to my intricate schedule and English level. Matthew's background, experience, presentation, and - during this time period - flexibility, make him an outstanding instructor. Highly recommended!

He's very skilled at recognizing students' areas of difficulty and addressing them with ease. He's also passionate about what he does and his students walk away with this same passion for learning!

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.
Andy June 2, 2017
· German · Online
I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

“I've tried to learn English for a long time and, though I learned a big amount of words , I wasn't able of having a short conversation with nobody. Teacher Beverly have been making a great job by identifying my difficulties and then working hard straight on it at abslutely enjoyable online classes. I'm really happy because in a few time I've improved my English skills as I've never did before, nevertheless I'm sure that there are so much to be learnt from her yet.”

Austin, TX

I have 5 years of experience in bodybuilding competitions, started in South Korea, 2013.
I know how to make proper meal plans, exercise routines, and I've trained many people face to face in the past at the University of Texas at Arlington.
I have a lot of free time, so i'm actually available 24/7, even if you're one of those people that go to the gym at 3am i'd still be able to help you out.
I can do online lessons, or i can come meet you in person.

About Cesar
Hello, my name is Cesar and i offer many fitness related classes and courses.
I have 5 years of bodybuilding and teaching others.
I taught a few students at UTA, and i helped them lose weight and achieve their goals in fitness.
On the side i enjoy playing video games as well.

I started my journey in South Korea while i was still in the military so if you’re looking for a strict coach that will keep you in check then i’m 100% your guy.
On the other hand i’m also very laid back so if you just want to learn a couple of things and get some meal prep guidance or workout routine i can do that too and let you do things your way.
I’m available 24/7 so if you’re someone that prefers working out in the middle of the night i promise you it’s no problem. I work from home so i’m usually up until about 4-5am.

Anyways , i hope you pick me so i can w
ork with you and help you reach your fitness goals!
Thank you!
