First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email to introduce myself. We then Briefly discuss the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students would like to achieve by the end of a period. This is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The customized syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during our lesson together.

About Priscilla

Hi! I’m Priscilla also known as Ms. P. to my students. I'm a mentor who values a unique and creative approach to learning music, art, and even photography. In my career, I’ve realized the importance of using a variety of teaching techniques catered to a student's learning style. As a mom, I’m

You can not directly get someone to see that they can be better or do better without a bit of influence.
Ms. P has been a positive influencer to my daughter. She taught techniques and gave her a written action plan for practice. I looked for someone my daughter could look up to and see herself in. She’s played drums and piano in school when she was younger and now wants to focus on being a vocalist. Ms. P offers lessons in singing and playing instruments. I figure she would be a perfect example of what you can do with your talents. My daughter words are below:

“Working with Mrs.P was a great experience. i didn’t realize how much breathing comes into play while singing. She showed me how to elongate my voice and sing from my chest instead of my throat. She’s very funny and kind and makes learning a comfortable experience.”

I'm thankful for Takelessons online options and finding Ms. P for my daughter's vocalist growth.

Priscilla has such a calming and warm presence! I love how she opened the lesson with meditation and stretching exercises.

And she jumped right into teaching me the song I wanted to learn how to play. I’m really going to enjoy taking more lessons with her. 😊

I've been a successful commercial photographer, author, educator and film producer since 1980. I understand that students learn in different ways and I strive to accommodate these differences.

I've owned and operated large commercial studios in Burbank, CA, where I did business with entertainment industry leaders: Warner Bros, Universal, Paramount and Disney. Disney especially punched my dance card for over 20 years. We love the mouse at our house. Currently I work exclusively as a location photographer and film producer.

Throughout I’ve taught at various private and public educational institutions, wrote my first book in 2009 and am currently writing my second. I’ve mentored many young photographers over the years and am thrilled for their successes.

Thanks for reading.

As a college graduate with two Associates degrees in Fine Arts & Associates in Digital Arts, and a Certificate of Completion in Digital Photography, I've learned a tremendous amount about photography and operating the camera. I'm eager to share this knowledge and these skills with my photography students.

You'll learn the basic functions of your camera, how to compose a great photograph, and if you need help with editing and managing your photos I can help you with that as well. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions, I'm always happy to help!

He was patient and took the time to work with me on my current website issues. He went above and beyond to help. Easy to work with.
Keith Rivers
Josiah is an EXCELLENT teacher. I purchased WordPress early in 2021 in order to build a company website. After going through tons of YouTube and WordPress lessons for literally several months, I still had no idea what I was doing and my website was also going nowhere.

After choosing Josiah as my instructor, I had an immediate improvement of my website and also gained a wealth of knowledge about website design and building in a very short amount of time.

Josiah is very, very knowledgeable and patient. I never feel coerced. He listens to my questions and concerns and gives timely, reliable feedback. Most importantly, he genuinely wants his students to learn.

Additionally, I appreciate the fact that there are no assignments, no exams, I only have to learn what is important and what I want and need to know, and I can do all of this at my own pace with absolutely no obligations or constraints.

In addition to the website building, Josiah also unselfishly gives invaluable expert advice on other topics such as marketing and advertising. I am very grateful for his help.

I am happy he is my tutor. I don't think I could have chosen a better tutor. I strongly recommend him as the number one tutor for website building with WordPress.

"I had been a student of photography from Deano Mueller for over 3 years now! With all his teaching experiences from The New York Film Academy on the Universal Studios lot, as well as working as a Professional Photographer since 1989, Deano really knows how to share his experiences, skills, & wisdom with total understanding of sharing his knowledge of photography! By far, Deano has been the best teacher that I had the pleasure to work with and has made me a much better photographer and also because Deano understood my wants & needs of what I really want to learn about photography through his knowledge & experiences!"
