About Lars

I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught seven- to 60-year-old students in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now, I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco for university studies, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week-long summer jazz camp called Jazz Camp West, where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music (Jazz Guitar) and Spanish, as well as

an MA in Music, from San Francisco State University. By now, I am confident in working with whatever musical material students offer! Thank you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now a play seven-string guitar that differs from the standard six-string guitar in that it has one string lower than the low E of a six-string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar
My guitar roots are mainly Jazz, but I am always happy to employ a very wide range of styles. I work with both modal and tonal musical styles.

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

Based on my experience, after a few lessons with me you will be able to read some words, count numbers, use common phrases to ask for help and direction.

About Shelley

I'm a professional singer/teacher residing in New York City with degrees from Indiana State University, and New York University with a specialization in Classical Art Song, Musical Theatre Repertoire, and Vocal Pedagogy.

Every lesson is about YOU. So each week we will take a look at your goals for the lesson, whether you are preparing for college auditions, school talents shows, a desire to work with music theory, or piano skills, this is your opportunity to explore. Everything is possible.

As a professional singer myself, I am constantly auditioning on broadway, off-broadway, and for smaller local and regional theater opportunities. I believe that as a teacher I have to continue to be in the field and learning as the industry continues to change. I have to be aware of the opportunities in this business. I have been hired by pr

ofessional opera and musical theatre companies, in additional to large choral works as a soloist, and have a private studio in Washington Heights.

Prior to NYC I taught middle school choir for 200+ students, of which I received teacher of the year in 2012. I also still hold a valid teaching license in the state of Indiana and currently applying toward my NYS teaching certification.

Within my voice studio I teach in person and online lessons. While online lessons can be beneficial for students wishing to study with me that are not in the immediate vicinity, I recommend in person lessons

I look forward to hearing your beautiful voice and helping you to embrace music!

Ms. Shelley is very dedicated to every one of her students. It is a pleasure working with her!

Shelley is by far the best voice teacher I have ever had. Within the short duration of time that I have worked with her, I have noticed that my voice has significantly changed (it feels and sounds better) after using her techniques. She knows what she’s talking about and offers substantial and specific criticism. She individualizes every student, in that she chooses repertoire that benefits a particular voice instead of assuming that every student has the same voice and strengths/weaknesses. This is a very important skill for a voice teacher to have. Shelley is also very good at time management within a lesson. Most importantly, she makes the experience fun! I would highly recommend Shelley to anyone who is looking for a voice teacher! Thank you Shelley!

Shelley is amazing! All my old teachers always told me to breathe to release the tension in my voice, but Shelley taught me vocal warmups to ease the strain. I now can sing better and connect to lyrics.

About Suyoun

Hello! My name is Sue and I've been teaching English to Koreans, Koreans to English speakers since 2007.
From this long experience, I learned how different and opposite these 2 languages are, so I can teach my student how to learn this beautiful Korean language the most efficient way and fun.

How can I make the classes fun? Along with language classes, I will share lots of Korean culture and history, so the students have always interest in the Korean culture. Once you are interested in that culture, it will be inevitable not to learn the language! Always remember! Language and Culture. These are 2 things that never be separated.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Sue is the best 선생님!! I contacted her for Korean lessons this summer and she responded immediately and was able to accommodate my time schedule. She’s a very patient and kind teacher and person. I had the hardest time with pronunciation and she was able to help me really hear how the words were supposed to be pronounced and made me feel more confident. She made every lesson fun and enjoyable — every teacher should be like her.

About Jorge

I am a native Spanish speaker from Nicaragua who loves to talk about a vast amount of topics, meaning there will always be something interesting to talk about in my classes.

I studied civil engineering at the National University of Engineering in Managua, Nicaragua. Since I was a child I greatly admired the dedication and patience of my teachers in while teaching students many different subjects. At an early age I realized that there was great potential in me to teach, my first teaching experience was in high school when I taught a group of people older than me to read and write for the very first time. At that time I could feel the magic and pride when people could read and write for the first time, that feeling is what has motivated me since that day to want to teach. My great interest in cultures and languages has made my interest i

n teaching grow even more. I learned English to be able to communicate in a more open way and have the opportunity to teach my language and be able to talk about my culture.

I have had the opportunity to teach Spanish as a second language to many groups of English speaking missionaries, to be a part of someone learning Spanish and be able to see them communicate without the need of a translator, it is something that fills me with a lot of pride.

Every student is a new opportunity to inspire and improve a life. I look forward to that every day.

This was my first lesson with Jorge and I was very impressed with his teaching ability. I have a good knowledge of Spanish from my childhood days in Chile and was seeking to refresh my Spanish capability. He was very encouraging and had some excellent ideas as to how we can best proceed. I am looking forward to continuing lessons with Jorge Fiero!

Jorge is one of the best teachers that I've ever worked with. He is great at explaining topics in a way that is very easy to understand. His classes are always fun as he always has topics to talk about that catch your interest. I had multiple Spanish teachers before Jorge and I learned more with Jorge in a matter of a few months than I did with any of the other teachers combined over 2 years. I would highly recommend Jorge to anyone looking to learn Spanish whether you are a beginner or more advanced.

"Bryce has a casual yet effective teaching style that made me feel relaxed and comfortable from the beginning. I already had an advanced level of English,
however I still needed to work on some of the nuances and prepositions in the language. Bryce has helped me immensely. I have started to teach English to others as my level has improved even more. I now feel confident teaching others English as a second language."
