About Morgan

I love all things artistic, from realistic oil painting to hand embroidery. I have a broad range of interests and proficiency in many painting and drawing mediums. The way I teach is very laid back, and dertermined by what the student needs and wants. We start by sitting down and discussing

I decided to take painting lessons from Morgan because while I have experience in drawing, I was a complete beginner when it comes to painting. Now after just a couple months of biweekly lessons, I feel like I have a good grasp on the fundamentals of oil painting. I've already painted several pieces that I really like. Morgan has been very supportive and knowledgeable the whole way through. I'm very glad I decided to take lessons from her.

I am a published photographer, a professional musician with an international acclaim and a published writer.

The reason all of these arts are synergistic together is because they are all about the inner vision and the capture of something magical. This magic is invisible to these who pass by in a rush.

Photography has been a love of mine since childhood as I took images with a fully manual camera in black and white without a range finder or auto focus lens. I still love the visceral experience.

My published photographs both on line as well as in galleries have been met with approval both in the media as well as by the established authorities. The director of Eastman House has picked one of my larger images of nature as one of his favorites. My specialty is street photography and the expressive moments of animals interacting with people. I do like portraiture which has been selected as an honorable win by photographic associations and printed in concert programs for ...

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.

I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

“To take photographs means putting one’s head, one’s eyes, one's heart on the same axis.”

- Henri Cartier Bresson.

Are you ready to open your eyes to fresh ways of seeing and perceiving the world around you?

I teach the secrets of Natural Light Portrait and Street Photography. Through private one-on-one lessons, you will push beyond the cameras, lenses and technical jargon. You will learn the “insider” tricks necessary to enhance your observation, increase your anticipation, develop your timing, and build a photography style that is individual to you.

Each lesson is “hands on,” as we review together what you shoot between lessons. The goal is to help you analyze what works and what doesn’t, and you will grow in your confidence and skills.

For each of my students, I go above and beyond. I support my students with encouragement and specific feedback. My lessons will challenge you, but we will move at a pace that's comfortable for you. You will also laugh and have fun!

I've been teaching photography for more than 20 years while working as a professional photographer for numerous magazines , newspapers and photo agencies. I'm based in New York City. My work has been published widely, as a regular contributor to the Washington City Paper and The Washington Post Ma

Teaching only watercolor for over 35 consecutive years, I am known as the Crazy Watercolor Lady because I am so crazy about watercolor! lol I absolutely love the medium of watercolor and have so much fun sharing it with my students, watching them grow to advanced work.

I developed a wonderful method of teaching watercolor, taking my beginner students to advanced work very quickly. You can even trace what you'll paint. I taught myself watercolor which helps me understand what my students know, and what they don't know. I teach any subject, such as, portraits of people or pets, landscapes, animals, cityscapes, flowers, abstract, etc. It doesn't matter what subject it is, because it's about light and dark shapes and color, which applies to every subject you paint. It is also about the wonderful techniques of watercolor, such as, salting, spattering, using saran wrap, making skippies, blooms, tickling an edge, fingering, bleeding out, etc. I also teach how to paint on Yupo, a ...

Natural lighting versus studio lighting brings about two different looks in your photography. We'll be discussing natural lighting, which does not need any equipment. And we'll also discuss the benefits of two styles of studio lighting. The natural lighting of a photo will be much softer and a warmer look while using studio lighting gives your photos a more ov …
