An immersive, cultural experience that will allow the student to experience Spanish as native speakers do.
Hello there, future string players and welcome to my profile!!
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and raised in Miami, FL. I started my musical career at the age of 8, singing in chorus, playing the recorder, and shortly afterwards moving to the guitar, and the violin.
When I was 15, I was nominated for a James L. Knight Award in Music, and I performed as a violin soloist with the Miami Beach Symphony Orchestra, and the Greater Miami Youth Symphony playing Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major. One of my most memorable experiences when I was a kid! In high school, I formed my own string quartet and we would perform all over the South Florida community especially at hospitals and for the elderly. At 16 years old, I was also given an internship with the New World Symphony, conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas, for about 2
years. During this time, I was able to take lessons from master violinists such as Marc Thayer and Glen Cherry. During this time, I was given the opportunity to perform with the New World Symphony at 17 years old for pops concert conducted and performed by Chuck Mangione in El Doral, FL.
I later on accepted a scholarship for violin performance at the University of Miami for my Bachelor of Music, and earned my Master of Music from Florida State University. I also taught string orchestras for 10 years at Ruth K. Broad Bay Harbor K-8 Center, South Florida Youth Symphony as conductor (and now composer!), and conductor of the Greater Miami Youth Symphony. I was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Alhambra Orchestra for two seasons under the guidance of my high school orchestra teacher, Mr. Reginald Nicholson (1947-2011). It was here where I was able to work on my compositions, orchestrations, and conduct a fine group of musicians.
I now live in sunny Los Angeles, in the Sherman Oaks area, and I'm loving the new change. I am eager to share my knowledge with new students on various subjects such as learning a string instrument to learning a different language. Please feel free to ask me any questions.
I am looking forward to getting to know you and your goals for learning! ____________________________________________________
LESSON DETAILS I have been teaching music as an adult, certified teacher since I was in college, but have done teaching as early as 15 years old.
I will help you create a fantastic technical base so you will be able to play with ease as your skill level develops, all while keeping the lessons fun and engaging.
MUSIC STUDIO Piano, Violin, Guitar, Music Stand, General Teaching Aids, Recording Equipment.
TRAVEL EQUIPMENT I can provide a music stand and basic materials but the student is expected to have their own instruments and to buy the music I recommend. I can recommend various vendors/shops where you can buy the ideal instrument for your lessons.
EXPERTISE I am classically-trained musician that also specializes in Tango performance, Latin/Jazz, Rock, and a variety of other styles. I believe that training in the classical aesthetic will create a firm, solid foundation to crossover into other areas listed above. With a good dose of technical exercises, scales, and a variety of repertoire, my students always turn out well-rounded, ready to tackle almost any kind of music they wish to learn.
Thank you for stopping by and let me know what you would like to learn!
Amazing lessons! Nicolas is methodical in his teaching and shows patience, dedication, and a kind heart. My 10 year-old daughter loves her lessons. I highly recommend him!

One the best intructors I’ve had in years! Nick really knows his music theory, orchestration, and compositional techniques. He’s helped me appreciate the intricacies of creating music for myself and others. He challenges me to do my very best. Thank you, Nick!

Nick is the perfect balance of dedicated teacher and incredible human being. Our 9 year old son loves his violin lessons with him. We are delighted we found him! Thank you, Nick!
I've taught Spanish for several years now. Not only have I studied Spanish myself, but I lived in Peru and Mexico for several years, as well as traveled extensively around Latin America, gaining complete fluency. With a focus on conversational Spanish, I offer Basic (A1), Pre-Intermediate (A2), and Intermediate (B1 & B2). You will be able to have a full conversation in Spanish by the end of your first lesson!
Hi there! My name is Jackie, and I have nearly 20 years of experience in teaching. All of my students, meaning a perfect 100%, have improved their grades by at least one letter grade, if not more, and passed every one of their tests and exams. I help all my students reach their goals.
The feedback I often receive from my students is that I made learning an enjoyable experience—they want to work harder to advance quickly in their classes. All of my students agree that I have a lot of patience and turn even the most challenging lessons into ones of positivity and encouragement. I provide critical feedback in the most constructive of ways that help the students reach conclusions on their own. I enjoy being there to support and guide their experience.
Basically, I love teaching. I'm enthusiastic yet patient, and I absolutely adore helpi
ng kids and adults alike learn. It's such a sense of accomplishment when my students show off their terrific grades. I see the same look in my students’ eyes regardless of age—that pride that shines from within, that exuberant smile, like they can conquer anything. I want my students to keep that pride for a long, long time.
Right now, I’m working on self-publishing a Spanish conversation textbook for beginning students and am writing an intermediate-level Spanish conversation textbook. I've also written several academic articles published online. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy traveling, playing with my cat, and swimming.
--- UPDATE 02/2019 TakeLessons will be rolling out a new English language video series that I am in! I'll share the videos on this page as soon as they go live.

I have volunteered at a center for a little over one teaching English to Spanish Speaker. I have also taught a few friends how to speak Spanish. Although I am not a native speaker, many people have said that I sound fluent and they even thought that I was a Native Spanish speaker. I have taught myself Spanish reading books, listening to music, and talking with some of my friends. I enjoy speaking. I accept anyone willing to learn Spanish. I will be teaching vocabulary and grammar. I would call myself a efficient teacher, because I teach at your speed, if you don't understand, I won't leave you confused and unprepared to speak Spanish. I also prefer to keep my teaching alive, even I believe that a boring teacher can be difficult to learn from. Most importantly: don't be afraid to ask questions (I don't judge, I just want you to learn) and don't be afraid to speak (It is important to be brave and speak, don't worry if you might be wrong you're learning. Speaking Spanish is a form of ...
I am a non-Native Spanish speaker, but I really enjoy speaking Spanish. I have volunteered and taught several people how to speak Spanish and English. I have taken a Spanish Conversation class at University of South Alabama. I have an abundance of material that I use to enhance my own fluency in Spanish. All of the time that I have taught, I have learned to stay with my students. I prefer to teach slowly so that they will understand and learn. My goal is to teach my students to become successful. Honestly, I enjoy teaching. My dream is to become a licensed interpreter and travel to Spain, Mexico, Puerto Rico, etc. I am currently working on my dream by enrolling in University of North Alabama so I may earn a license. Whatever your goals may be; being an interpreter, traveling, or even teaching as I am now. I encourage you to achieve your
goals. Put your mind to it and you will achieve. I look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your goals. Who knows you might enjoy speaking Spanish as much as I do.
