I have lived in Spain more than 20 years, I am a native Spanish speaker. I studied all my youth and finished High School there in Spain. Later on I graduated from the University of North Texas obtaining my Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Minor in Spanish. I taught Spanish at IALE International School of Valencia for a year and then obtained my Teaching Certification in Spanish in Texas this year. I can teach grammar, how to write the language correctly, correct pronunciation, conversation and all related to this beautiful language. I like teaching all ranges of age. I have experience teaching very beginners up to adults.

If you have a lot of knowledge about the language but you want to improve your speaking in a higher level, or you need to learn it for your job or business I am the one to speak with! I will take your Spanish to a HIGHER LEVEL!

If you are asking yourself if it is the same language than the Latin American Spanish, yes, it is the same. The only differences are based on vocabulary and some expressions. It is similar in how British vocabulary and American vocabulary differ. Grammatically it is the same exact language but do have a broad knowledge of how different Hispanic countries use different expressions.

Join me and learn Spanish from a Native!

About Robert K.

I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of North Texas.
I also studied a 6 year piano degree in Spain, finishing the degree with the highest grade in piano performance.
I can teach classical music, which is my specialty. If you like to learn the music of Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, Chopin and many others, I would be glad to teach you!! In addition, we could study other styles too! Pop songs, Rock, Jazz, your favorite songs, some special song that you always wanted to learn. Just tell me what you like I can help you achieve your goals!!
I can help you to obtain a great touch on the keyboard and learn how to read music and how to express the music written by the great composers.
I have experience teaching from young students to adults in Spain and in the US.

I also love teaching music theory. Music theory is the knowledge that let us learn and understand how harmony, melody and rhythm intertwine in a musical piece. Knowing music theory can even help you expand your artistic skills and be able to write songs or improvise.

Come and let me help you learn how to play the piano, you will enjoy it! Fill your life with music!

I speak Spanish as a native because I was raised for many years in Spain. I hold a Minor in Spanish from the University from North Texas and also I hold a Spanish Teaching Certification from the State of Texas. Therefore, I can teach grammar, writing and perfect pronunciation.
If you are asking yourself if it is the same language than Central and Southern American Spanish, yes. It is the same language. The only difference that we have is in vocabulary or some expressions. An example would be how British vocabulary and American vocabulary differ. In any case, it is the same exact language.

If you want to learn piano, music or Spanish, I can help you achieve your goals, it is worth it!!
