About Me

Hello Students!
My name is Michelle and I have been dancing since I was seven years old! I was one of two graduates to earn my Bachelor of Fine Art in Dance/Dance Pedagogy from Columbia College Chicago in 2011. I have since moved back to New York City where I dance for a professional modern dance company in downtown Manhattan. When I am not teaching class, I am busy being a student of my own all over New York City at prestigious studios such as Steps on Broadway, Gibney Dance Center and Broadway Dance Center. It is here where I take daily classes with the country's greatest dance teachers/choreographers to continue my never ending training in dance techniques and developments.

As a working professional dancer, I understand the rigor that it takes to achieve your goals and I work with my students one on one to achieve them! I have had the honor of training with the greatest dancers in the business to help me achieve my goals such as David Dorfman, Joe Goode, Alexandra Beller, Kendra Portier, and Oliver Steele.

Dancing and teaching dance are my greatest passions in life and I want to share them with students of all ages from 18 months to 100 years old!

Thank you for visiting my profile and I hope to teach you soon!
Michelle

Dance

About Me

Hailing from Connecticut, Janelle has come to make her mark in the dance world of New York City. As a recent graduate of New York University, Janelle has focused her attention on the arts. Not only has she begun to choreograph for such artists as Kitana Blade and such groups as MAD dance, she is a dancer herself, having performed in numerous PMT Seasonal Showcases, Alvin Ailey Student Showcases and many other venues throughout the city.

She has gone from being a student at New York University to being an adjunct professor where her classes range from Ballet, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Stepping to African and Kathak dancing. Her life is "Dancing gives my life substance while teaching gives my life purpose."

She always looks forward to teaching new students and will welcome anyone in every class with a smile and a knack for instilling what she knows to those who participate.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking class with me I look for the students to show as much effort as possible! A lot of fun will be had as I too love to dance and participate with my students, laugh and enjoy our time together. Each class or session will begin with an extensive warm up as to avoid injury and then from there we will proceed into choreography that focuses on a specific skill set we are looking to achieve for that day. After 3-6 months of working with me I'd expect the students to be able to 1.) be creative and comfortable in themselves to utilize the movement that has been taught in previous sessions 2.) execute the movements properly and 3.) enjoy the progress that they have made and to be able to notice it themselves

About Me

I am a certified music therapist (MT-BC), vocal instructor (BS in Classical Voice), certified yoga instructor (200+) and Reiki master. I am a professional freelance editor, working on a collection of nonfiction essays. I am a meditation guide. All of the subjects I teach through TakeLessons are related to one of the aforementioned areas. I am a person who finds joy in a variety of places, and I truly love what I do.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I have worked professionally as an editor of scholarly writing on both the college and post-college level, as well as a professional editor of multiple dissertations, and other publications. Being a creative person, I find language to be a wonderful way to express thoughts and emotions as well as communicate deeply with others.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout Westchester. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized classes offered to deepen your experience.

About Me

Hello!

I am a recent conservatory graduate who has moved to the city to become involved in the fascinating art culture of New York City!

I have extensive training in music theory, music history, flute performance and teaching, piano teaching, ballet technique and contemporary dance technique and I LOVE to share! I have a passion for teaching kids, but I am more than happy to teach any age. My students in the past have ranged in age from 3 years, to 60 years and I have loved my time with each of them! I hope to meet you soon!

Piano Teaching Experience and Philosophy:

For the past eight years I have maintained a studio of up to 20 students of all ages and abilities. I focus my teaching on elementary through early intermediate study, establishing a firm foundation in technique, theory, aural skills, musicality, and music appreciation. My goal for every beginning student is to foster a love of music and build the skills for disciplined practicing. I believe that regardless of other abilities, these two skills will enable any student to be an active and engaged musician throughout their life. To this end I teach a highly personalized private lesson, drawing heavily from a student’s musical interests and maintaining solid accountability for their independent work during the week. Although I usually base my teaching in Faber’s “Piano Adventures” series, I am very familiar with other popular methods and cater the books I use to the individual student. In addition to a method book base, I am comfortable supplementing my training with theory, history, guided listening and aural training. I have taught students of every age and aptitude including students with tendencies towards ADD, OCD and ADHD and am also comfortable working with those who have autism or Asperger's syndrome. I am a passionate teacher and firmly believe that every human being has the right to experience music. My pedagogical training includes observational hours at the university level and a workshop with Randall Faber of the “Piano Adventures” method book series.

Flute Teaching Experience and Philosophy:

Prior to and in conjunction with my performance degree I have taught flute privately since 2008. A conservatory level course in flute pedagogy with Suzanne Jordheim has greatly influenced my teaching and has allowed me the opportunity to work under the observation of the best private music teacher I have ever known. Since my work with Ms. Jordheim, my students have consistently won high honors in school and regional bands and orchestras as well as at state performance competitions. I focus my beginning students towards tone development, disciplined practicing, a relaxed posture and rhythmic integrity. I am comfortable teaching beginning through advanced flute students.
