- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I specialize drawing realistically in graphite, charcoal, and pen. For beginners, I always go over the basics: shapes, shading, and strokes. We will start with simple objects such as cups and boxes, and move on to more advanced subjects, leading to your goals as an artist. I can teach how to draw from life, photo, or even from your imagination.

Hello, my name is Dennis Willoner.
Music and art have always been a huge part of my life. I have been playing drums for 15 years and have been teaching for 7. I grew up learning to play drums from a private instructor, and have been studying on my own ever since. I have played in many bands in my music career and have also tracked drums in studios for local artists. Today, I currently work at School of Rock in Palo Alto as a private and group instructor, and play in a professional band called Constructs.
I have been drawing ever since I can remember. I mostly draw realistically, but also like to get on the creative side. I enjoy drawing faces and people the most out of any subject. After learning so much about art, the world can be viewed in a complete other perspective.
I teach students to play the songs they know and love with other musicians as they learn how to play in a group setting. These songs are rehearsed for multiple months overtime, ending with a stage performance for all their parents and friends.
Great instructor: friendly and patient, clear guidance and fun process
He's an experienced drummer and a good teacher. It helps that we have similar tastes in music.
