They say taking the first step is the hardest part of any task . . .

(10+ years of experience, a B.A. from Penn State and three years of tutoring experience)

I can teach you AT THE VERY LEAST enough to get you passed the first THREE.

My name is Niguel (pronounced like Nigel--the U is silent--but if you mess it up, I won't care too much haha). I have a variety of interest and an affinity for those who share the same! I have only been teaching a few years, but everything that I do I have been studying rigorously ever since I can remember and I hope I can teach what I have learned--and what I am still learning--to you!

If you want a teacher that's radiates contagious passion, sign up for one of my courses and let's get to work!

Freelancer for DDO Artist Agency

Following my graduation from Penn State I was lucky enough to land an agent to assist me in booking more and more professional work! This work, of course, is not limited to acting! Music gigs and writting commissions are also among the list of things I've been able to achieve thanks to DDO

P.S. If you're a fan of NBC's Shades Of Blue you may have seen me on the four episode of season 2! (half of my hair was missing--clip in my profile)

Acoustic Guitar · In studio

Learning to play guitar is something I have wanted to do since I was a teenager. Thanks to Niguel's lessons I am on my way. Guitar is not as easy as it looks (at least not for me) but Niguel is a great teacher. When my daughter is older I will hire him to teach her as well

Ukulele · In studio

I've played guitar and bass, but for some reason Ukulele has always been impossible for me to understand. That is until I took Niguel's course. He explains the instrument and the chords and notes in a way that makes learning to play the uke so much fun!
