Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drums

This is to learn hand drums mostly in the African style.
I have led drum circles in the Washington D.C area at such places as the Silver Spring Plaza. I am a main member of the Sunday drum circle that happens every week in Meridian Hill Park. I teach in schools and have many different instruments and music materials as well.

General Computer

I have worked with computers for over 20 years producing teaching and creating music and music videos. I have run computer labs where students learn to create their own music CDs I have also helped the labs install music software. I work with Windows Apple and Android software

Guitar

I currently work with a music company that teaches beginning piano and guitar to young people. I have lots music books, sheet music and recordings. I do this 10 to 15 hours each week. I have taught beginning guitar to students in the last 3 years. With the right books and teacher anyone can learn very quickly.

Piano

I offer a fun, creative, open learning style designed for anyone who wants to enjoy music and the arts for the rest of their lives.

If you are just starting out, I teach beginning piano and guitar to young people. We have fun learning to read music with a focus on playing real songs.

I teach piano and guitar 10 to 15 hours a week in the Washington D.C. area mostly in schools and to private students as well.

I have worked with dancers, poets, and many types of musicians. I have recorded music on the internet as well. I do have a music degree.

Public Speaking

I studied theater in college, give live performances, and have been a MC (master of ceremonies) at festivals. I was a teaching artist for the Kennedy Center and the Choral Arts Society, where I gave presentations to school students.

Reading

Hello and best of luck with your finding a great tutor. Here is what I have to offer.

1. I am a happy and fun person.
2. I come from a family that is very well educated . My father and 2 of his siblings have PhD's.
My dad received his PhD from Columbia University in New York city. My mother Adrienne Kennedy is an award winning playwright.
In addition 3 of my 4 grandparents finished college as well.MY degree is in music and theater.
3. I have books of stories,folktales, myths/legends,poetry plus plays from many cultures from different time periods.

I believe that reading and all learning is much more enjoyable if the student has a connection to the task at hand. So the first step is to expose the student to different styles and levels of material.
The rest is things like
is the student rested and ready
do you have a good place to work
are you working the right amount of time
do you always know where you materials are.
do have someone to work with or at least share some of your lessons with?

Well let me know if you want to do a lesson or two.

thanks joe
