The Recital was fabulous- thanks for all your work.
Goals: Since I am also a Life Coach, we really focus on how to accomplish our hopes and desires. We begin by weekly, then monthly and even a yearly goal.
Each week we also focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. Another is TECHNIQUE. Technique is the ability to have proper position, wrist-lifts and finger curve as well as Theoretic knowledge and application.
I started giving out lickable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet and come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!
It is a great week when students are nearly all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.
Perhaps you are reading
this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.
I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?
Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.
I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.
You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.
*** Lesson Details *** In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.
We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.
What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.
Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.
*** Studio Equipment *** Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.
*** Travel Equipment *** No travel.
*** Specialties *** Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.
I have taught English to Korean immigrants in Virginia. I organized English classes for church attendees who wished to improve their English communication skills. I developed weekly lessons based on the needs of the group which introduced them to the basics of English grammar and conversation.
I am an experienced Korean teacher from Korea who has taught all levels of Korean to English speakers. I tailor my lessons to the interests of students and make my classes interactive. I develop customized lessons to reinforce the material from the book and reinforce grammar topics. On occasion we even go on field trips to local Korean restaurants!!!
I recently began taking lessons with Hannah and it has been a wonderful experience. I went in intimidated at the thought of learning such a difficult language from scratch, but Hannah has been a very helpful and encouraging instructor and makes the language so much more manageable. I've been rather amazed by how much Korean I have been able to pick up in such a short time and have no doubt that I can become fluent eventually under her instruction. Anyone interested in learning Korean should absolutely take lessons with Hannah!

My son and I had our first lesson with Hannah. It went very well. Hannah is engaging and patient. She really understands that studying Korean is no easy feat and takes the time to explain things to e Janice our comprehension.

I’ve taken a few classes with Hannah and learned a lot. Her style is patient, but in a way that challenged me to work hard and learn as much as possible, quickly and efficiently.

I am a professional singer, songwriter, actor, and teacher. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre (with a minor in Spanish)! Originally from North Carolina, I moved to New York City in order to pursue my dream of being an actress! Upon my arrival in New York, I quickly found that I also have an incredible passion for songwriting and teaching. Currently, I am pursuing a career in music and working as a teacher.

I have been teaching music and tutoring for a few years now!
I enjoy music so much! I received my degree from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I am also a member of the worship band at my church.
One thing that I enjoy the most, as a teacher, is seeing growth and seeing students get that “aha” moment. The most amazing thing about teaching is being able to see the joy in students as they perform. They get to be themselves. Playing an instrument or singing is raw, vulnerable and takes a lot of hard work.
Being a musician is worth it. You get to be able to express yourself in ways impossible otherwise.
Please let me help you along your journey to become the musician you dream to be.
I also mentor/ tutor students at the middle school level in the four core subjects: Math, Science, English and History. I really enjoy w
orking one on one making sure that my students are setting goals and really understanding the material they should be studying.
I would love to teach music and do a little bit of math if you would like that for your child. I can also teach English while we play instruments or sing.
Please let me know if you have any questions! Cannot wait to meet you!
I'm an engineer by profession, by passion and been working in this field for quite a long time. Nevertheless, I also like to teach languages and go to language exchange groups in different places to share my knowledge of languages.
The teaching experience that I have included: - The social aspect of communication is very important, so I prefer to adjust to a specific style of learning of each person - I prefer live, interesting discussion that brings result rather than just formal lessons. - The most important aspect of learning language is having fun, so I believe this is the most important part. When it's dull it's really hard to learn something, so it must be engaging and interesting.
In other words, I'm an engineer who loves to teach people different things and it means that my definition of success is helping people become fluent in a language. My focus is the result itself.
I'm an engineer by profession (and degree) but was always enjoying teaching other people languages. I'm a native Russian speaker but been living in the USA for 10 years and fluent in English. I highly believe that education should be done in informative and a fun way, this is the only approach to achieve the result. And the result is the most important part of any education and this is my main focus - make you speak the language quickly. I will find the best approach depending on the student language level and particular needs. I look forward to e-meeting you!
I focus a lot on conversation practice because throughout the years I have noticed that this is a great way to make the student improve.
On the other hand, I do have a lot material to teach you from
Hi, my name is Milton. I am 27 years old, I am Salvadoran but I live in Brazil for six months every year. I have traveled to Guatemala, Panama, and Brazil. I like learning languages and that is the reason why I speak excellent English and Portuguese. Currently, I am learning French.
On my free time, I go to the gym, listen to music, read, watch movies and go shopping.
I study Modern Languages at the university of El Salvador and there I discovered my passion in teaching. I started working with a NGO where I taught English, then I was hired at a public and private school. Also I did some teaching via Skype and that is how I helped others to improve their learning course.
Most of the time, my students ask me to prepare a conversational class where the student chooses a topic of his/her interest. When I had a classroom, I used to use a b
ook from where I would prepare my class. I like using current topics to keep the student's attention going.
Ralph is a good man and wonderful teacher. He really worry about if student learning. He Carefully prepare the lessons and always ask if student are comfortable or wants other kind of topic. His qualities are punctuality, attention, preparedness and ability to teach.

May 2, 2019
I've been taking lessons with Ralph for almost a year now over Skype and I'm so pleased with my improvement. I'm always impressed with the preparation Ralph does for each lesson - a huge list of conversation topics or an article to discuss - and appreciate his enthusiasm, good humor, and patience. I started at an upper-intermediate level and Ralph has helped me refine the finer points of speaking to sound more native. Highly recommended!
I taught creative writing and U.S. History in the Department of Education for New York City (10+) years experience.
I have a unique teaching style that I perfected during my 10 years with New York City public schools with a focus on building comfortable relationships that ensure students the best learning experience. I teach from a variety of perspectives in order to give students a realistic well rounded view of historical events and societal issues.

"Richard is a awesome teacher.
He is very friendly and helped improve my English pronunciation and grammar using his guitar.
Thank you Richard!"
"I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me
seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work."
