Guitar lessons, or any music lessons, are about sound and understanding it in a way that is comfortable and fun for the student so that they can apply it as they wish. I don't force students to learn how to read music, in fact, I let them choose the lesson and only guide them if the lessons are not getting slowly but surely harder and more challenging in more than one way. The principle goal is for the student to understand sound, how it can work by moving your hand or just one finger, the difference that can make to the sound, and again, how to apply that sound in a musical context. This applies to both chords, lines, harmony and melody, the works. I teach Jazz Guitar Primarily, but have been playing over 15 years (guitar) and 23 years (piano). I have a wealth of knowledge of theory which I do believe to be extremely valuable, but only after the student is able to comprehend the sounds they are playing, and, of course, if they have questions. I believe lessons are an exchange ...

As a professional theatre artist, director, writer, and educator, I’ve seen (and performed) hundreds of auditions from Shakespeare to Broadway. It’s my pleasure to help you land the role you covet.

Bring material you know cold, or try out something new on me. Either way I’ll give you my honest response, take your greatest strengths and magnify them, challenge your least convincing moments, and guide you through improvisational discovery exercises to mine the gold from any script or song.

Cello is famous for its deep and warm sound, probably the widest range from low to high register. It is used for solo, chamber music, ensembles, chamber and symphony orchestras.
But the most important cello can change your mind and fulfill your soul like no other instruments !

Nazar is a great instructor. He was quickly able to assess my goals and ability and did a great job pointing out areas for improvement in an encouraging and positive way.
Jessica
Nazar has a wonderful ability to relate to people. He has excellent skill and enthusiasm, making our son WANT to learn. We highly recommend him...
Kelvin
I've been working with Nazar since 1998. Not only does he know his stuff and makes his teaching personal to your needs, but he also has a way to make you feel successful even when you are struggling. you always feel better about your playing when you leave than when you got to his studio. He recognizes your learning style and what you want to accomplish, then builds his teaching around that.

If you are looking for a cello teacher (and yes, he also teaches piano and other instruments) I'd say put your time and money into Nazar and you, you will feel it is one of your best investments

Since our child started taking lessons with Sarah, we've seen consistent improvement and growing enjoyment from playing the violin. Sarah was very accommodating with schedule changes and gave us plenty of notice if something came up on her end. Sarah gets the highest praise from our family! We will miss her.

I like to make piano lessons fun and interesting to students. I teach beginners at any age. We can start from "Hot Cross Buns" or "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star," or any other beginner song you are interested in learning.

I have an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am very passionate about helping children to learn, especially in piano. I have been practicing piano for more than ten years and continue to play to improve and have more fun.

If you would like to learn a song, please let me know ahead of time so we can be prepared for the lesson. After purchasing lessons, you can send me the title, composer and/or the sheet music.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to piano lessons with you!

"First lesson: Was/am having difficulty with a particular rasqueado technique. Diego “dissected” my motion indicating proper methods for better finger placement and hand positioning.
Accompanying this was a video of our lesson for my reference and an informative blog note pertaining to the art of practice.
Throughout all Diego had a courteous manner, was receptive of my questions and gave me notes by email about what we had discussed along with practice suggestions. Look forward to continuing with him.
