My unique experience as a polyglot, foreign language teacher, composer, songwriter, guitarist, pianist, singer, meditation teacher, GMB personal trainer and martials arts instructor informs my pedagogical practice as an instructor and educator.
Due to these experiences, I implement a holistic approach to instruction that results in a richer learning experience for everyone involved.
I'm a classically trained guitarist, pianist, and singer. I also compose and produce both acoustic and electronic music. I have a BFA and MA in Music Compositon. I received 3rd place in the New Orleans International Guitar Competition. I also produce and release music professionally.
I am polyglot who also teaches foreign languages to non-native speakers. My experience in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, and Portuguese allows me to anticipate potential difficulties language learners may have and my comfort in each of those languages allows me to clearly articulate and explain difficult concepts.
I am a certified GMB Fitness personal trainer. I also train extensively in several martial arts, including karate, judo, Brazilian ju-jitsu, and aikido.
My teaching style always adapts to the students goals and needs. I'll help you get to where you want to go quickly and all while having fun. I also bring learning materials to the student free of charge and I'm really good at helping students overcome their challenges.
I am passionate about finding unique solutions for unique individuals. Helping people reach their goals while enjoying the journey is an important part of the way I teach.
Whether I am teaching music, movement, or meditation, I know that people benefit from holistic approaches that support them in achieving their goals!
Delighted to have found Amine to help me achieve my goals of writing and producing my own songs. In three months, I have completed more songs with Amine, than I have in 2 years on my own. While Amines impressive academic achievements in make him a goldmine of information about creating rhythms harmony’s and melodies, it is his emotional intelligence and how he communicates ideas that is unique and helped me develop rapidly. As a 40 year old former banker, I am on track to produce my first album in 2020 and the possibility of a new career as a songwriter is now very real.
I have been receiving guitar lessons from Amine for several months now, and I have nothing but positive things to say! I am studying Portuguese and in an effort to better learn this subject he has been teaching me about Brazilian music as well as practicing the language with me. Amine is a good-humored, and patient teacher with whom I have learned a lot about music culture in Brazil and technique.
Amine is an incredibly insightful and charismatic person who has helped both me and my son to progress exponentially since we have begun working with him. He is extremely patient and instills a sense of confidence that allows for growth without fear of mistakes. My 8 year old son has ADHD and has been doing after-school tutoring sessions with him. I have never seen my son focus or take interest the way that he does with Amine. He easily redirects him and keeps him on task without breaking stride or making my son feel like he did anything wrong. Since they have begun working together, my son has also taken a much greater interest in learning music; piano in particular. Amine has a depth of knowledge regarding psychospirituality and personal development that is apparent in his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a gentle or rigorous approach to music, spirituality/meditation, or tutoring (for any age).
Amine is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. His work with me on computer music topics like mixing, editing, sound design, song-writing, and composition has always demonstrated great creativity and attention to detail.
