About Omar
My passion is sharing music with people.

I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio production as well. Feel free to ask me questions, and expect informative non-judgmental answers.

I have spent a lot of time developing as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer, which helps me in all aspects of my music and teaching, I'm always looking to learn more. I have played in heavy metal bands, but have also done solo acoustic singer/songwriting stuff, I have produced raw hip-hop but also love old soul and ska tunes. Being well rounded musically and drawing from lots of influences is what makes me a good teacher and shapes me as a m
usician.

As an artist I have been featured on MTV, Rollingstone, BBC, NBC, VOA, ARY, Alt Press, LA times, documentaries and more. I have been playing guitar and recording music since childhood and am a classically trained sitar player and Indian classical vocalist.

I am a great teacher for someone who wants to write songs, or is into Indie, rock, pop, reggae, metal, hip-hop, and electronica.

*** Lesson Details/ What to Expect ***

You can expect a custom, fun and attentive one on one lesson. I am thorough and patient. I expect you to love music and put forth effort. I'm laid back, I will work as fast or as slow as you need. I prefer a total immersion technique and get my students playing right away. This boosts confidence and fosters interest because once a student enjoys playing you don't have to convince them to practice.

By the first lesson you will be familiar with the instrument and it's parts, and playing your first chord.

In 3-6 months you will be playing guitar with a greater knowledge of chords, basic harmony and be able to play scales and songs.

Once you have a foundation of chords we can explore more specific music subjects and lessons will become more personalized: songwriting, guitar tones, musicology, making a DIY record, shredding like a metalhead, I can guide you to help you achieve your goals.

I receive a very large number of student requests everyday, So to keep things organized please keep the following in mind:

Takelessons is a wonderful service that I use to handle all my payments and scheduling. I want to focus on the teaching, so they help with the rest.

I have a 24 hour cancelation policy, please give me at least 24 hour advanced notice, or you will forfeit your lesson credit.

All scheduling changes or time off can be requested right from the website for your connivence. it's super easy!

Use an email that you will actually check to sign up for notifications, it's not spam, it's to help us all stay organized.

Remember to please reserve your spot by paying in advance. (I have a waiting list of people asking me for those super convenient days, and times)

Online students please make sure you have the highest connection speed available to you. This will ensure you get the most out of the lessons.

*** Equipment ***

Please make sure you have your own instrument, and a note book or device to take notes with.

I am trained in piano, but never had any guitar or ukulele experience prior to meeting Omar. Omar figured out my aspirations and skill level in no time and got me strumming songs in less than 4 weeks. Now I lull my kids to sleep with my ukulele and they sing along.

About Aleena
***Give the gift of music to someone you love this season!

I've been teaching piano and art for more than 9 years and I've been associated with TakeLessons for 7 of those years in 2 different cities. I teach beginning and intermediate piano as well as art students at my studio.

Teaching is a very rewarding experience.
Although my training was in classical music, I currently compose and perform a variety of genres besides classical.
I also create multi-media 2-dimensional art as well as painting with acrylic and oil; drawing as well.

Music improves math and other cognitive skills. Einstein used the violin to relax and there are scientific studies correlating brain development with the acquisition of music skills.
I'm an encouraging and flexible teacher because every student is different and requires their own individualized le
sson plan.
I have a policy to always communicate with my students and parents of students who are children.

****One of my students was a 16 years old virtuoso in classical guitar. He came to me because he never learned how to sight read. Within 6 months he was writing his own music and decided to change his specialty from guitar to piano.
*****Another one of my students was dyslexic and he was told he would never be able to read music but he was reading music and within a few months he was writing it himself.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I encourage anyone who is interested in learning to begin lessons with the knowledge that they can eventually create any kind of art they desire.
I continue to perform and create visual art which enables me to sharpen and maintain my skills.

I hope to have an opportunity to meet you soon and I encourage you to ask any questions you have!!!

About Sara
Hi! My name is Sara and I just graduated from Brigham Young University in Provo. I now live in Texas as a photographer while my husband attends medical school. I love learning and getting to experience lots of different things! When I worked at BYU as a Peer Mentor, I met one-on-one with first year college students to assist them in developing time management skills, effective study strategies, and test-prep skills. Before that I worked at a daycare for a year where I ran a homework club for elementary school students. I've also assisted in creating and carrying out a homeschool curriculum for my 4 special needs siblings over the last few years and currently teach a Sunday School class of 3 years-olds at my church - some of which also have special needs. I genuinely enjoy spending time with and meeting new people and I'm excited to get to
know each of you!

About Dennis
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 have been wanting to learn drawing since I was a kid. Had a few years of drawing when I was a kid and then haven't touched in a long time. When I rekindled my interest to learn, I came across Dennis.
Honestly, the reason why I chose Dennis was because he provided at-home classes and that would avoid the hassle of me having to travel. The first few classes were more of me and him warming up to each other, as I am sure he also found me different.
He comes with all the necessary equipment and spends a few minutes giving you some basics of the stuff we are going to do that day. Then he leaves you to draw while he also draws the same. He glances once in a while at your sheet and gives you very subtle feedback. If you have missed something, he will just try to nudge you in the right direction with minor comments like "Don't you think, these are of the same darkness?, There may be more highlights in this area or the mid tones here and here are of the same darkness. etc.". He never touches your paper, but only guides you.
Sometimes when some focus is needed (for example on the eyes), he will tell you the technique involved in depth and we did one full class just doing eyes, one full class on hair.
It was a little frustrating initially for me as I was not used to the teaching technique, and now I see the point. The first drawing itself turned out be much much better than I had anticipated it to be and he hasn't touched my paper till now - so this drawing is fully mine.
You can also continue drawing and send work via text message to him. You almos t always get detailed instant feedback. The only thing is, I haven't been very diligent in doing drawings due to lack of free time. So once a week for an hour is what I do.
He also spends extra time sometimes so that he can take the drawing to a logical point, sometimes even beyond 1.5 hrs though my session is for an hour each. That shows the commitment he has to his students.
I believe my work will improve as this course continues. We have had about 6 classes and I am already seeing the difference. A long way to go, but the first steps have been right - most of it due to Dennis and his method of teaching. I would say more than teaching, it is a method of mentoring where the hand holding is done in a unique way.

She was great to work with. My husband spent extra time chatting with her because she was so knowledgeable and helpful. We are excited about taking another class with Vicky, in the future

About Roya
My name is Roya. I am a professional artist and educator. It would be my pleasure to teach you painting and drawing. Over the last 10 years, I have taught painting and drawing in universities and colleges. I have a M.F.A degree in painting and drawing. You will learn painting and drawing like a university's student in my studio. My teaching philosophy focuses on laying a strong foundation with technique and growing from that foundation towards theory and concept. I equip my students with strong technical skills that emphasize art elements, art composition, color theory, and a variety of mediums techniques. My goal at the beginning stage is to provide students with enough skills to begin making art that deserves critical discussion. I teach in my studio at my home, Richardson, TX 75082. Please send me a message if you have any other quest

I am very attentive to your learning process and speed and can formulate a strategy that would be most productive to your specific needs. I will teach you the foundations and principals necessary from sketching in your construction lines, blocking in your colors and refining details and the theory behind composition so you can achieve success in your artistic endeavors.

About Jessi
I am a professional artist, board game designer, and animator. I graduated from the Art Institute of Houston with a Bachelors in Media Arts and Animation and am working towards my Masters Degree in Painting.

My students can expect to improve with every week in not only your drawing skills, but also your painting techniques. Every artist is different and I will strive to bring out your inner artist that I know you have! You have a voice, I will teach you to tear down your artistic walls and unlock your individual expression.

I work in several different mediums, including, but not limited to, Graphite, Watercolor, Acrylic, Digital, Ballpoint pen, and Sidewalk Chalk. I have been drawing since I was 4 and taught myself. At the age of 14, I went with my family to Disney World, where I sat in on a drawing lesson by one of the artists of 'The
Lion King.' It made such an impact on me, that I still remember what he drew, Zazu.

I teach art students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach you to draw using graphite pencils as well as paint in different mediums, including watercolor and acrylic. I love to mentor students with a passion, as that is where some of our best work comes from!

I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become an artist!

When Photoshop came around, I jumped right in and have been enjoying this digital age, without chemicals :). I currently teach at Emory Continuing Ed and at Univ of West GA continuing ed. I love teaching all the things we can do with Photoshop, Lightroom, and photography in general.
