*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Ms Shannon has been very accommodating with instruction, since I have some physical challenges. She finds new and creative ways to make things work for me.
I am so lucky to have found her. She's an imaging teacher.

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Gustavo
Hi, my name is Gustavo. I play soccer twice a week and work as a pharmacy technician while attending school.
I have played on many club teams, managed several teams, and have coached for several teams. My goal is to share the same skills I've learned to others so they can learn to gain confidence in the game of soccer. I love exchanging value for value and hope to have others learn to love soccer much more. I specialize in beginner and intermediate levels and will provide the skill of learning how to have a more active role in the game of soccer. I'm very skilled and experienced on the mental aspect of the game and will provide the skill set for confidence on the field. My teaching methods are not intimidating, very simplistic, but effective as I apply focus on every drill. I am no professional, however i am confident that I will provi
de the foundational skills needed to develop players to become more confident with the ball.
