Music Lessons & Tutoring

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I specialize in Latin (learning from scratch and tutoring). I instruct students of all ages at different skill levels.

My in-studio lessons are given on a grand piano.

Education

BM Music Composition -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
BA Classics (Greek and Latin) -- Ohio State University, Autumn 2012
Classics Fellowship -- Indiana University, 2013-2014
Piano Training: Collegiate lessons from Steven Glaser and private lessons from George Haddad

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Profess
or Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers' Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU's Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.

My son was excited to have a real singer as an instructor, and hasn't stopped bouncing and singing scales since! We're looking forward to growing with Mr. B's help!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.

Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.

About Cait
Want to improve your speaking confidence or writing skills? Having trouble learning English alone? Think learning English is important, but don't know where to begin? Let's talk.

Your lessons will be customised to suit your particular needs and wants as well as your learning style. You can expect that lessons will be:

-Fun and engaging
-Designed based on YOU
-Informal, humorous, and easygoing

I can help you with...
-Conversation/speaking and listening
-Pronunciation and Intonation
-Reading and writing
-Grammar
-Business English
-Test preparation (IELTS)
-Document editing/proofreading
-Job Interview Preparation
-Resume building
-Homework help
-And more!

Want homework? Homework can be assigned based on what we discover during our lessons about which language skills could be improved. Homework will also be tailored t
o your individual needs and desires for learning.

Interested in improving your English writing for IELTS, work, school, or any other purpose? Join the popular and growing writing program! There are two options for this program:

1. Journal Writing

1-7 times per week, you will write a paragraph or two about your day or about something happening in your life--what you did, what you are thinking about, a project you are working on, etc. I will edit your writing, showing you not only grammar and spelling mistakes, but also suggesting alternative sentences to show how you can express your ideas in an eloquent, native-sounding, colloquial way. As you integrate the suggestions over time, your writing will improve more and more!

2. Assigned Writing Topics

Under this program, you will write about topics I assign based on what you want/need to work on. For example, if your goal is to improve the emails you write at work, this is what we'll work on. If your goal is to gain vocabulary, you'll be given a list of vocabulary words, definitions, and examples and a topic to write about, with the instruction to use the new vocabulary words in your writing. The assignments are personalised based on YOU.

ABOUT ME:

Although I am new on Take Lessons, for the past 5 years I have been teaching students of many ages, backgrounds and abilities both online and in person. By now I've taught hundreds of students from all over the world! I love this job for 2 reasons:

1. I love to travel! I have been traveling and living overseas for most of the past 8 years and have spent time living, volunteering, working, and exploring all over Asia, Europe, Australia, and more. So far I have been to 30 countries! This job allows me to travel, which I love.

2. When I teach online, it's almost like traveling without ever having to leave my computer. The world comes to me! Sometimes I think that I learn just as much as the students just from talking with people from different places and backgrounds.

Aside from teaching English and traveling, I like: yoga, meditation/mindfulness practice, visiting eco-communities, bouldering and rock climbing, baking and cooking, and board games.

Whoever and wherever you are, it would be my pleasure to work with you. Hope to talk with you soon!

About Nika
Hello future students,

My name is Nika. I am a 26-year-old developer and a creative experience designer at an international Italian based touring company.

I just moved to Austin from Dallas and I am so excited to learn more about the coolest place in Texas. ;-)

I was born and raised in Iran and started learning English since I was 8. I was very passionate about learning a new language and found the best methods to excel at it. I would love to teach people who are interested in Farsi, all the creative, out of the box and fun ways I personally used, to introduce them to one of the oldest, rich and romantic languages, Farsi.

In my free time, I enjoy writing slam poetry and going to slam events. I also love to read Persian poetry and going to Persian poetry nights.

I love listening to NPR, programming, Farsi and comedy podcasts.

I al
so love food and cooking. I try to experiment with food and see what I can make with what I got.
