I like to tailor my lessons to the needs of each student. I can teach all styles from, classical, to jazz to fiddle and contemporary or rock. Whatever the style, I strive to focus on good musicianship, theory and technique developing right hand dexterity and the bow arm along with the left hand and vibrato. I use several different methods depending on the age and ability of the student.

I incorporate a lot in piano lessons such as chords, technique, memorization, music reading, music theory, ear training and more. I like using both lesson books and music that the individual picks out to keep students interest and engagement. I use many materials throughout lessons. I like to incorporate the fundamentals of music theory so that the student understands the concepts of music, not only learning to read sheet music. I keep lessons fun and engaging and I teach each student what they want to learn. I consistently check in with students progress and continue to take students to the next level. Students will learn how to practice efficiently, and learn patience in the process. I continually help students form good practice habits and show them effective ways to practice.

Hi, I'm Zak! I'm guessing you're here because you love singing. Well, so do I!

Small world.

I've played piano on Broadway for Wicked, Mean Girls, Motown, and The Color Purple, and have vocally coached multiple Broadway actors. What makes singing lessons with me unique is that I am also a vocal coach. I focus not only on healthy technique and exciting repertoire; I also focus on Acting While Singing. This is a skill that often falls by the wayside - we act until the song starts, then just stand there singing. I've heard many top directors say they'd rather cast an actor who sings than a singer who acts (meaning, they prefer acting talent to singing talent). Acting While Singing is what takes a performance to the next level. Like Lin-Manuel Miranda in Hamilton and In The Heights, and Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen, truly transformative performances come about because the actor is so fused with the character that we can't tell who is who.

Please reach out if you're curious to learn ...

Jonathan is very patient and professional.
Michael
My high school daughter has received trumpet lessons from Jonathan for over a year. He is an excellent instructor, very knowledgeable and patient. As a school teacher, he knows how to work with kids in a way that gives him an advantage over a non-teacher performing artist. We've done lessons both in person and online. I'd highly recommend Jonathan to any parent looking to have their middle school/high school student take private lessons.

Jonathan is very patient with my kid and made the first lesson fun.

I have a Master in Fine Arts and, I encourage students to learn the Spanish Language through art culture traditions. In addition, to being a Spanish instructor, I work as an art curator, gallerist, and art educator. I incorporate art and music into my classes as a way to give a well-rounded introduction into Spanish, not only in a linguistic but also in a cultural sense. I use a communicative methodology, which emphasizes interaction, so you will learn in context (asking for coffee, or talking about your family), and a student-centered approach, which is based on your personal goals.

My class includes an e-textbook (open source) and all practice material. Most of all, I hope to get to know my students and have fun in the process of teaching and learning. And yes! any question is a good question, feel free to contact me. Click the icon above under " Ask Liliana a question."

"I held a virtual team painting event and invited Sharon to be our tutor. My team has a tight budget, but Sharon managed to fit the painting kit under the budget & the paint was high quality! She also made a video helping us prepare for the painting event: how to stain the palette, how to wash the brushes and how to coat the canvas.

In the painting event, we had a large group (~15 people), so it’s very difficult to coordinate. People had different questions every 5 mins, or people asked the same questions, or you had to wait for other people. Sharon was very patient to answer everyone’s questions. We even went overtime but Sharon was very nice that she continued finishing the painting with us.

All my teammates produced very nice paintings! Majority of them have never painted before, but they created beautiful paintings under Sharon’s guidance. Thank you Sharon!"

What is the Best Lighting for Photography?

The best photography lighting is based on several factors, and depends on what type of look you want when it comes to your photos. 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 …
