About Jason
TakeLessons.com Instructor since 2005, Jason M. is now available for online lessons worldwide featuring multiple-camera angles and a share screen experience leaving no stone un-turned!

Jason has been playing guitar for over 15 years and teaching music since 1996. Although trained in standard teaching methods, he has developed his own method of teaching to positively enhance the student€™s strength, dexterity, ear-training, memorization and techniques. His goal as a teacher is specifically designed to help you achieve your goals as an artist and a musician.

This year Jason was also the Music Director at the National Guitar Workshop Day Jams Rock Music Day Camp where students ages 7-15 came out to form bands, record original material and master their craft. He also taught beginning to advanced guitar/ vocals/ performance and songwri
ting as hosted a recording clinic at the end of each day.

Jason has host student showcases/charity benefits where his students were able to get on stage and show off their new talent and perform with other musicians. It wasn't mandatory though, if you were just looking to come out and support there was no pressure other than to come out and have fun.

Jason has been transcribing for guitar and bass since the age of 18 and since then has become a master of the craft including both 5 line staff and tablature, hand-crafted exercises and deconstructions to better enhance the students learning. Artists and genres that Jason has experience with range from Classic Rock, Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, Santana, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Led Zeppelin, Robert Johnson, Pierce the Veil, Paramore, All Time Low, Demi Lava to, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Pantera, Avenged Sevenfold, The White Stripes, Green Day, Old Crow Medicine Show, Taylor Swift, Mumford and Sons, Bruno Mars, Rob Zombie, John 5, Audioslave, Rage Against the Machine, Van Morrison, the Beatles, AC/DC, ZZ-Top, Bullet For My Valentine, All That Remains, Ozzy, Black Label Society, Sublime, Aerosmith, At the Drive In, Type O Negative, the Black Keys, the Pixies, the Toadies, Black Sabbath, Jason Mraz, Lady GaGa, John Mayer and Journey.

Jason attended the University of Alaska, Anchorage where his degree is in Music and Business. He is constantly continuing his education with music theory courses as well as private guitar instruction. He attends guitar workshops and seminars by artists such as John5 and Kerry King who are known as some of the worlds finest guitar players. He reviews every day from a wide range of over 1000 sources working to become a better musician and instructor.

Another nice feature that you might enjoy from one on one sessions with Jason is learning the ability to craft and record your own songs using state of the art technology that caters to your own unique personality. There are no limits!

Jason teaches all experience levels from beginner to intermediate and advanced as well as artists that are signed to labels.

Local news outlet Fox 5 did a segment with one of his students who overcame issues with ADD and depression as a result of taking guitar lessons.

His students advance quickly, some have released albums, been in Guitar World Magazine as well as its online companion and won awards for their music websites.

About Endilla
Hello There,

My name is Endilla Teaupa. I am of Tongan decent (with a hint of Samoan and German). I was born and raised on the Islands of Hawaii where I was literally immersed in the Spirit of Aloha. In other words, surrounded by a lot of, “Ho’ Brah not even!”, “Sup’ Aunty/Unko/Sista/Brada”, “Whatchyu like?”, “Shaka Brah”, “Get da’ Slippah”, “bumbai you learn”, (haha) etc. My culture has a lot to do with who I am today, but, even deeper than that is my love and passion for the beautiful Dances of Polynesia.

  I began dancing the Hula (from the islands of Hawaii) at 5 years old and that was all I danced for a while. Here and there I would learn a few Tauolungas (from the islands of Tonga) to perform at family functions or gatherings. When I turned 12, my Aunty, former dancer of the Polynesian Cultural Center, invited me to dance with he
r group, ‘Tautehine o’e ’Pasifiki’. That’s when I was I introduced to the Otea, a combination of Drum beats from the islands of Tahiti. I must admit, back then, my skills were zero to none.  With my arms moving quicker than my hips, I’m sure I gave the impression that I was doing the Harlem shake (haha). From there on I continued to learn more about the Polynesian culture. That included Samoa, Fiji, Maori, Tokelau, Cook Islands, etc.

  Taking in all that I’ve learned, I’ve developed a deep love and passion for my Polynesian people and the way we are able to express our emotions through Dance.

  Few who knew me then, saw that I struggled with my own personal insecurities. I was very shy as a child and I lacked a lot of self-confidence. I was literally one of those clingy little children who was glued to their parents hip. I didn’t want to leave their side because I was afraid. Afraid of jumping into a world that I knew would hurt me. Dancing, however, changed that for me. Every opportunity I had to hit the stage, I became a whole new person. Dancing made me happy; it kept me active and in shape, and most importantly, it brought out the true beauty and confidence that was buried deep inside of me.

  I believe that there’s a lot of beautiful gems hidden in every individual. In order to discover those hidden gems, we need to dig deep and really find what our true passion is. For me it’s a lot of things. Dancing is one of them. If you have not yet discovered yours, I’d like to extend an invitation to you to join me in catching the Passion Wave of SWAY.

About K. Beautifull
As a woman, managing perspectives of self vs those of others and society, being able to unapologetically embrace your beauty, your body, your sensuality and sexuality may become like a juggling act or just dropped altogether.

But You Matter! All of you-mind, body, spirit.

I am a dancer AND I am a Licensed Counselor with years of experience working with teens and young adult women through traumas and emotional and behavioral challenges. I understand how these traumas can affect us into adulthood and how we connect to our own identities and our self esteem.

I use Sensual dance and fitness as a way to reconnect and empower positive perspectives of ourselves and even to heal wounds of shame or guilt.

I am trained in ballet, contemporary and jazz and have spent my adult years teaching sensual, erotic, fitness forms of dance to women a
s well as performing in various shows of burlesque among the other genres of dance.

My sessions offer you an opportunity to glow and grow through it .... life, depression, fear, self consciousness.... healing .... in a safe space where you explore your sensuality through movement. It could take the first session to break through ... or it could take a few ... either way I am here for you. My sessions are healing for me and I hope to share that energy with you.

From celebrating your beauty, your body, your life .... to reconnecting to your self ... come share sacred space and time with Sensual Self Fitness sessions !
