Hispanic Festivals

Esquina Tango http://www.esquinatangoaustin.com/ A great way to continue learning outside of your Spanish lessons in Austin is to take dance classes.

Mexic-Arte Museum http://www.mexic-artemuseum.org/ A different way to experience Latino culture is to take a trip to the Mexic-Arte Museum.

I have spent four years studying Spanish in academic settings and have traveled extensively to Latin America, learning Spanish on the way. I have a wide vocabulary and a thorough understanding of grammar.

About Michael
I am a classically trained and professional musician who has worn many different musical hats over the years. I began playing drums when I was 14, in Houston, TX with Craig LeMay, and since then I have learned many different string and world instruments. I studied music theory and vocal performance at the Florence University of the Arts in Italy, taken sitar lessons from Mita Nag in Kolkatta, India, and jazz performance in Austin, TX with Joey Colarusso. I have played in many different bands over the years, such as accompanying Michael Kiwanuka with the musical saw, accompanying Katie Sachs wi
th the musical saw, playing bass guitar with Halaska and DJing private events with Spacecraft Entertainment. I have been teaching music to special education students, in Austin public schools, and foster children with Kids in a New Groove. I have also built and modified many of my own instruments and ready to teach you some quirky musical production skills as well. I believe listening and being adaptable to an individual student's needs are the keys to teaching anyone to express themselves through music.

After studying Spanish for 2 years at the university level and extensive travel to Latin America I am fluent in Spanish in both the academic and conversational sides of the language.

Michael was an excellent teacher. Very relaxed, patient and understanding. He taught me a combination of songs and some music theory that was reasonably challenging to practice at home.

If I could give ZERO stars, I would!
This instructor stood me up.
I showed up at his home for our first lesson only to find out that he wasn't there.
I've also contacted "takelessons.com", but have had no response from them either!

CAVEAT EMPTOR!

Michael is doing a great job getting me started on my piano journey. The exercises and drills he is teaching me have helped me feel comfortable at the keyboard. I've even learned a song already, after just 2 lessons!

Highly recommended.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

Learn with a native Spanish speaker from Bolivia. I have a passion to teach and help while sharing my culture and knowledge. My classes are adaptable for every student, an I will tailor the learning experience to each student's specific goals and needs.

There are 20 countries in the world that have Spanish as their official language, but Spanish is not exactly the same everywhere. I enjoy sharing insights into regional colloquialisms to help you prepare better for your unique circumstances.

About Gustavo
I started teaching Spanish in 2011 in Bolivia, helping people visiting my country learn the local language and customs.

In more recent years I have helped Spanish learners prepare for trips to Spanish speaking countries, to write documents and letters in the appropriate style and tone, and to deepen their knowledge in order to be able to communicate (both casually and professionally) better with Spanish speakers.

Today was my first lesson with Gustavo. From the start, he was super warm and welcoming. We had already worked the details before meeting today on where I wanted to focus my learning and he had a plan and peripherals ready to go. He really stretched me today, allowing me to engage in the language and corrected where needed. At the end of the lesson, he gave me some homework to help me prepare for our next lesson. I'm really excited about our future lessons together!
