Informative and patient classes centered around students needs and requirements.
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.
*** Lesson Details *** My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.
*** Studio Equipment *** Has all instruments at both his home and college studio
*** Travel Equipment *** I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.
*** Specialties *** My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.
If you needed a reason
There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

Angela Solis is a violin and viola teacher with more that 12 years of experience. She started her music studies in Spain, where she finished her Bachelor Degree in music in 2004 and where most of her performance and teaching experience was forged between the classical, contemporary and regional styles. Her experience in performance includes playing in several orchestras, ensembles, recording studios and as the lead singer and founder of her band “Costellas”.
Her teaching experience was also broadened when she decided to attend multiple Suzuki and Rolland method workshops in Spain and set off traveling around Asia, where Angela also worked as a Violin and Viola teacher and came in contact with the ABSRM system.
One of her greatest professional achievements was to obtain the Viola teacher position in the state music system in Spain. It
is a hard process that can take years and where one has to prove a high level in performance, teaching skills and instrument related knowledge. Angela got the 6th highest score in the test that year of 2008.
Being an instrument teacher is not easy, and teaching a string instrument is really hard during the first stages. Angela invested lots of time and effort promoting both instruments and motivating the scarce students she first got so they could thrive. Some of them pursue today successful music careers and the number of Viola and violin teachers in the school she started doubled in 3 years.
Nowadays, Angela lives in San Francisco, where she moved around 2 years ago, got married, and have some private students while taking private lessons herself from a teacher of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. She is also learning composition and Music production and practices chamber music whenever she has the chance.

Hi, I've been teaching Spanish for 13 years and my students have gone on to love Spanish language, culture, and study abroad. Some of my students continued studying Spanish in college and even be Spanish Honor classes. Some students even made it their major. We begin with easy sentences and then as time goes on, you'll be able to conjugate the verbs and able to make some sentences and short conversations. I am using a curriculum for young adults that I have used in my school teaching which includes Spanish culture and other subjects and we will have lots of material to accompany your lessons. I love working with students of all levels and make our lessons as fun as possible.

I have been teaching professionally for 10 years. Most of them abroad, in Ireland and Turkey and always at the Instituto Cervantes and in several universities, last year in Barcelona, at Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.
