I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

Beginning students will focus on scale and chord construction, the circle of fifths, transposition, and application to their primary instrument or voice. Intermediate students will study chord progressions and begin to understand these concepts in the context of four part harmonies through analysis and composition. They will also begin analyzing any music that they may be studying on their primary instrument. Advanced students will begin studying form analysis and the structure of music in the context of larger compositions and ensembles. Interested students may also begin learning composition in these lessons.

About Samantha

Hi! I have been making music in some form all of my life. I began playing band/orchestra instruments in sixth grade on clarinet. I quickly added flute to my skillset after that. Flute became my primary instrument about twelve years ago but I do still play both instruments and a few others. I have be

I was apprehensive at first about doing flute lessons online without any background in Western Music Theory, and not even knowing how to make any sounds on the flute.

Samantha helped guide me through a structured series of lessons building upon music theory and notation as well as helping with the basics of hand placement and creating sounds.

She also helped me to learn new notes, scales and chords progressively, and pushed me to achieve far more than I would have been able to on my own in such a short span of time.

She was also really good about being flexible and accommodating to find a time that would suit us both for lessons, and was always punctual and on time for every session.

I would highly recommend her as a teacher!

Ruben is a great instructor and very flexible. He tailors his lesson strategy to the student's goals and creates a supportive environment. His focus is on building a solid understanding of music structures first and then applying to the guitar.

There was some confusion with the 'take lessons' website in that it scheduled my lesson for CST when both I and Ruben are in PST. I didn't spot it until 'day of' and Ruben was gracious and flexible in still being able to do the lesson at the later time. Not his fault and I appreciate his willingness to adjust his schedule once the issue was realized.

Reuben was well prepared and very engaging.

Originally from France, I passed the TOEFL to enter to an American university and got 107 out of 120 in 2013. Since graduating with a master in 2016, I have been preparing students from different nationalities to prepare for the TOEFL ib. I can speak and write English as fluently as a native speaker and earned a bachelor, master and doctorate degree in the United States. I am really good with grammar and with my knowledge of French and Spanish, I can compare languages and make grammar much easier to understand for you.

She is so patient and explains in a way I can understand as a very complex language. Great working with Lilla.

I enjoyed my time with Lilla . Hungarian is not an easy language to learn . I tried to learn from my Hungarian husband with little success . She was so patient and kind and encouraging. She made our classes fun and productive. I learned so much . My fluent husband is thrilled with the progress we made . I will do more classes with her in the future . I Highly recommend Lilla to anyone trying to learn Hungarian!

Lilla is a very kind and knowledgeable teacher. She provides excellent worksheets for her students to properly learn the language. I highly recommend her if you're interested in learning Hungarian.

“I was blown away by the things you were saying - and feel as if Amanda learned in that one hour more than she’s learned in a year of voice/piano! I only wish we had known you a year ago! Your enthusiasm, experience and passion are amazing!

If you are looking to keep the music going during this shutdown, consider online singing lessons!

I've taught singing for over a decade and I direct singing groups ranging from elementary, middle, and high school through young adults and senior citizens.

Nothing makes me happier than helping a singer become more confident and expressive in their voice.

I've been teaching students around the world over video chat for years, and while it's not the same as in-person, there are many advantages.

Due to the shutdown, my schedule has opened up considerably and I have many openings for new students.

Ease of scheduling and lack of travel are obviously a bonus, but one of the big advantages to online lessons is you get ...

She knows how to get you into your body and character, even over Zoom, and I have seen a lot of improvement in my acting skills from only a couple months of lessons.

5 Movie Monologues for Men to Practice Your Skills

Good monologues are hard to find. They are even harder to find when we are talking about film. Film is a very fast moving medium. We, as an audience, have been trained to expect to see something new every few seconds. Live theatre, however, has enjoyed a long and enriching relationship with the sustained attention of the monologue. Here, we are just going to focus on movie monologues for men, and how they help the actor hone their skills. First, we need to define the thing we are looking …

7 Different One Minute Monologues for Kids!

Monologues are an essential part of a stage actor’s career, and that includes actors from ALL walks of life! It doesn’t matter what sort of actor you are - comedic, dramatic, classical or contemporary...you will need a variety of monologues to have ready if you’re auditioning for acting work. Professional actors certainly know this, but it is advantageous for those that are active in community theater or school theater, too! Theater in recent years has exploded.

How to Read & Understand Stage Directions

If you’ve ever been in a play or musical you will be familiar with the term ‘stage directions’. For those who don’t know, stage directions are,  “an instruction in the text of a play, especially one indicating the movement, position, or tone of an actor.” Stage directions can also be instructions for the director, such as the way the stage should be lit or what kind of sound effect could be used.  Stage directions can also tell an actor how to deliver a line— pace of speech, emot …
