Gilbert, AZ

About Charles

I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to
become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Preparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just my own guitar and amp they need their own equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, flamenco, rock, heavy metal guitar. I have also developed new classical guitar techniques that I call the "trem" stroke and the "harpeggio"

Initially impressed with Charles video displaying his prowess with the guitar. Even further impressed with his patience with my over eager 9 yr. Old on her first lesson. And he is a local talent!

Debra D.

Phoenix, AZ

About Debra

Hello and welcome!

As the owner and principal instructor at Studio D - Dance & Voice, my goal is to provide a positive, enjoyable learning experience for all of my students.

My background includes dance (teaching, performance and competition), commercial acting, singing, modeling, and radio/TV experience. My talent resume is available upon request. I have been on network TV and I've been a national media spokesperson for a major US corporation. I'm represented by one of the top talent agencies here in Arizona and I have worked extensively in Los Angeles.

DANCE STUDENTS:

I teach
the following individual and group classes:

- BELLY DANCE: Beginning and Intermediate (mainly cabaret style, including zils, veils, scarves, veils, and fan veils). We also dance a wide variety of belly dance, Oriental, and fusion dances - something for everyone!

Interested in performing? Then you'll definitely want to join my belly dance performance troupe. I'm always looking for committed dancers who want to learn choreography and performance techniques. We perform at various venues around the Valley.

- BALLROOM: (including Latin, Swing, Smooth, and Club dances)

For ballroom classes, both couples and individuals are welcome - no partner is required. I work with students who are serious about learning how to dance, and who want to learn proper technique in addition to dance figures. I'm especially interested in working with dancers who are considering competitions and performance. I absolutely love choreographing routines for my student dancers!

I teach at one of the largest studios in the valley - we have plenty of room to move and explore the various dances you want to learn.

For couples planning their wedding, I can help you choreograph and rehearse an enjoyable wedding dance that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.

Having a party? I offer group lessons and performances (ballroom and belly dance) for special occasions at your location.

I'm looking forward to helping you become the dancer you want to be!

ACTING / SINGING STUDENTS:

Please let me know your goals and interests and I will help you achieve them. I utilize a variety of different methods and techniques customized for each student. I have been acting and singing for over 20 years.

MODELING STUDENTS:

I teach all aspects of modeling, including print, runway, platform, tearoom and showroom. You will also learn about hair, make-up, auditions, fittings and the business of modeling. And, you will have the opportunity to work with a professional photographer to practice and build your portfolio.

*** Lesson Details ***

DANCE LESSON INFORMATION:

There are a few rules of dance etiquette that any reputable instructor will ask you to follow:

- Please come dressed appropriately. My studio maintains a dress code, so please arrive in appropriate dance attire. Belly dancers may wear yoga pants and athletic tops (belly dance skirts are also perfect). I can provide coin belts and practice veils.

- While in belly dancing we dance barefooted, ballroom dancing does require special shoes. These are highly recommended. Please note that sneakers are discouraged (rubber soles will stick to the floor and impede your movement). If you want to try a lesson or two in regular shoes, that's fine. Just be sure to wear shoes with a leather sole.

- Please arrive 5 minutes prior to your lesson so that you are ready to go when your lesson time begins. If you arrive late, you will forfeit that time.

- Cancellations require a 24-hour notice. This policy allows us to offer your lesson time to another student.

Most important, lesson times are all about YOU. Each lesson will continually build on your knowledge and skills. Your dance instruction will be customized just for you, your skill level, and your goals.

Happy dancing!

***Accessories and Props***

- Belly dance: I can provide coin belts and practice veils. For more advanced students, I would ask them to purchase their own props and costumes.

- Ballroom dance: Students will need a pair of appropriate ballroom dance shoes (recommended, but not required initially).

- Acting, voice, and modeling: No special items are necessary.

Debra is a great instructor for dancing. I've studied with her for many hours and found her teaching to be pleasant, easy to understand, and right to the point; she helped me turn my two left feet into ones that can dance.

The nice thing is that with her background in television, P.R. and how to present a good image, and she has taught me to be more confident and comfortable with my dancing. As a guy, that means a lot!

I highly recommend Debra for anyone wanting to learn the fine art of dance.
