If your considering taking guitar lessons for the first time,
or looking to "spice up" your playing ability, Numan is the teacher for you.
He's patient,knowledgable and always go's the extra mile to help me during our lessons together. I've had previous teachers who charged more and are nowhere near as talented; my playing has inproved drastically since studying with him and friends have noticed..Highly Recommended!

Numan first of all is a great guitar player. He has studio experience, and has played professionally for years. He has taught me many great techniques in playing guitar. He has patience and is very clear and thorough when teaching and works at the students pace. In just a short while I was already learning some of my favorite songs, reading music, scales, music theory and writing my own tunes! I definitely recommend this teacher if you want to learn the guitar from top to bottom.

Numan is the real deal. I spent years putting off taking guitar lessons as I've never been the best student. A friend of mine recommend Numan and I thought I'd give him a try. His teaching style is very patient and thorough. He does not get frustrated and works with me at my pace. He's also the best guitar player I've ever known. In just a few months I'm playing at a level I never thought I'd be able to. I cannot recommend Numan enough.

About Taro
こんにちは 

My name is Taro, and I am a Japanese teacher from Kobe, Japan.  
​ 
I first started teaching Japanese when the mother of a high school student reached out to me to help him learn Japanese. I have been teaching the language since then to men and women of all ages.  

Japanese is a language that emphasizes formality which is reflected in Japanese culture that values civility and order. Learning Japanese properly enables you to understand how Japanese people think and act, which helps you to enjoy Japan fully when you visit the country.  

My job is to help you learn the language the right way so you can get to the next level. In order to do so, I use curated material and utilize technology to maximize your learning process.  

I look forward to working with you, and I am excited to help you realize your goal.  

Taro

Material Used:

Genki I&II (beginners)
「上級へのとびら」(intermediate-advanced)
新完全マスター Shin-kanzen Master (JLPT: N4-N1)

Prior to the beginning of my lessons with Taro, I had little to no knowledge of Japanese, so I took weekly lessons for Japanese lessons for a little over half a year, and I am proud to say that I feel confident in my understanding of the basics in Japanese grammar and knowledge. He was excellent in adapting to my learning goals and ensuring that I received what I expected from every lesson. I was able to retain much of what we went over because the lessons effectively covered material that I can relate to my personal life. Taro is definitely my favorite teacher since he goes the extra mile and genuinely cares about his students as well as their goals. If you're thinking of beginning lessons and aren't sure where to start, Taro is the perfect teacher for guiding you to identify and reach your learning goals, whether you're a beginner or have moderate experience with Japanese!

I have been taking Japanese lessons with Taro Sensei for about 5 months. He is a very patient and organized instructor. He designs the teaching material based on my specific level and goals. I enjoy the fun conversation with him during every lesson. My Japanese skill has improved gradually as time goes by. Thank you Taro Sensei.

Hi there! I'm Anna, and I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've been offering private piano lessons since 2009 and offer foundations in music theory, technique, sight-reading and classic piano repertoire.

I begin most students in Faber method books, before branching into classical repertoire including selections from Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary time periods. My teaching style is flexible though, so I'll be happy to adapt to your individual liking and needs.

In 2012 I graduated from Thomas Edison State College with a degree in music and in 2017 I completed my Master's in Education from Post University. Today I enjoy teaching music to students ranging from six years old through adult.

I believe quality practice and motivation are key to success, and I'm looking forward to helping you succeed!

Anna is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled musician, which inspires her students to want to excel themselves! My 7year old son has been taking lessons from Anna for about 2 years. He is excited to go to his lesson each week! Although my son struggles with some dyslexia, Anna is extremely patient with him and makes him feel like he is valuable and capable. She has adjusted the method and curriculum to find something that works well for him. She carefully explains the lessons, makes my son feel so special, and inspires him to want to learn.
