Become proficient in Spanish with an expert teacher and native Spanish speaker
Raised in largely bilingual household. B.A. in Spanish from UW (cum laude). English fluency slightly stronger. Extremely high level Spanish proficiency although the minutiae within humor can sometimes be lost. Excellent for those who need help with pronunciation, grammar (clarification of grammatical rules like the difference between a direct object and an indirect object, etc.), conjugation, and conversation.
About David L.

Many years of drum instruction with students who have learned best with alternative learner-centered approaches including: extreme patience, slow to fast repetition of patterns and exercises, focused breathing, as well as sight-reading, rhythm and ear training. Students with: Asperger's, Autism, Dyslexia and related states have benefited greatly.

David L.
I have been working with learners in both one-on-one and classroom/workshop settings for over twenty years. I have taught learners of all ages from diverse backgrounds, each with unique skillsets. My principal subject matter is drum set instruction, but I also teach flamenco cajón, Ableton Live, audio production, beginner flamenco guitar, and Spanish language!
