Great teacher

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Shannon for 2-3 years. She really enjoys her time with Shannon and has learned so much! Shannon does a wonderful job of creating chamber music groups with recitals, in which my daughter was able to take part - definitely nothing that would have been offered in her school at this level! We are very lucky to have found Shannon!

Having been a runner since my pre-teens, I have competed in both short distance sprints & long distance races (up to a half marathon). In that time I have studied under amazing, award-winning coaches & have amassed a great deal of knowledge regarding the subject. In our discussions/training, we will cover breathing techniques, proper running technique, warming up & stretching adequately before performing, etc. In conjunction with hands-on training, we will discuss dietary plans, varying training regimens, proper hydration, & how to build a routine that will increase your overall physical & mental wellness.

I graduated from the University of St. Thomas "Cum Laude" in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in Guitar Performance, with minors in Music Production & Composition. While attending St. Thomas I served as the Music Theory tutor, as well as the live sound/stage/light/recording technician for student & faculty recitals. I have been playing professionally & teaching for over a decade. My passion for music is something that I love to share with anyone else who feels inclined to make music.

About Kortnee

Hi There! Today is your day to start those piano lessons! Right? Please contact me for additional availability. I have more options than are shown here. Whether I am teaching a piano lesson, directing a play or training for a triathlon, you will find that I am always full of enthusiasm and positive life energy. I look forward to helping you meet your performing arts goals. There is nothing more beneficial to your well-being and contentment than participating in the arts! When I was a little girl, I begged my parents for piano lessons.... and then flute lessons... and then saxophone lessons, and then oboe lessons... and then voice lessons.... and the list goes on and on! They couldn't keep me away from music and theatre. I studied music and theatre in college as well ...

Kortnee is a fabulous teacher! She came into our home and taught my 9 and 11-year old daughters piano once a week. Both girls thrived and looked forward to their lessons. The progress they made in one year with Kortnee was impressive. We have moved out of state and the biggest regret is that we can't find another piano teacher like Kortnee. We miss her and her enthusiasm for teaching music. Best instructor ever!

Kortnee is amazing!!

I actually take both piano and flute from Kortnee. Her energy is contagious and she knows many styles of music. She is always ready to support what I want/need to do and can give me a tip within minutes that will help me forever. I can puzzle over a phrase or mood, and she will immediately "get it". She loves to see me have fun, and loves to help me over the rough spots.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Kelvin L. Bolingbrook, IL

Every one of us have had to run at some point of time – be it as a punishment for coming late to school, a way to reach a train that you can’t afford to miss or simply a part of competing in a sport. While most of us know it is healthy, not many people do it on a daily basis. Probably, if they knew about its various health benefits they’ll be more encouraged to include it in their lifestyles.
Here are some of the top reasons why running is healthy for you.
Great for your heart...Great for your lungs...Helps you lose weight...Slows down aging....Reduces depression...Aids digestion.... Good for your bones....Helps you sleep and Makes you happy

Mr. Kelvin is a passionate musician, best that I've known. His lessons are not boring and always go by in a flash. He is good at identifying problems that needs correction and he will point them out consistently until rectified. Highly recommended if you are looking for a teacher to give you pointers to bring your music up a notch!

Mr. Kelvin demystifies Lightroom and the layering process. He has taught me how to edit with ease. He makes sure you understand what he has done before moving on and is generous with his time when you have questions. Whether you are a beginner or a pro, Kelvin moves at YOUR pace and does not move on until you fully understand the task at hand. I will continue classes with Mr. Kelvin for the foreseeable future. He is a pleasure to work with. He is a very intelligent, kind and understanding mentor. I would recommend him to anyone. :)

Kelvin is an accomplished and effective teacher who makes online lessons both enjoyable and stimulating. He quickly spots bad tendencies so that they can be corrected early in the process and thus prevent future problems. Kelvin is personable, professional and knows what he's talking about. I look forward to each lesson to see what the next challenge will be and to get to spend time with Kelvin.

I have been running for 5 years. I run in various races ranging from 5k to full marathons. I have a love for training new runners as the growth is rapid and transformational. My technique for this class is hands on and normally includes running along with you for each session leading up to your first big goal, whatever that may be. Normally that means your first 5k. But knowing how I fell in love with it, you will probably far surpass your first 5k! I personally run minimally (on the fronts of your feet, with minimal padding in the shoe) however I teach for all different techniques.

Chelsea has been a wonderful acting instructor for my daughter. She covers what my daughter will need to know for her future in acting and really helps her understand what she needs to do. She also does more than just teach, she has been invaluable to different resources and really has my daughter's best interest in mind with everything she does. My daughter is more outgoing and not afraid to be silly in front of others anymore. She can't wait to do more acting because of Chelsea's teaching and support.

Chelsea has been giving my 14 year old son acting lessons. She is wonderful. He is a new student to acting and she is not only speaking to him as an educator but as someone with her own experience as a young though very knowledgeable, actor. My son is very shy and introverted and this is a great way for him to come out of his shell and we couldn't have picked a better instructor. She listens to his concerns and gives him great advice. We will definitely be signing up for additional lessons with Chelsea!!

A great, intuitive teacher/weight-loss coach. She knows what she's talking about and is capable of working with you to create a plan or help you with the path you're already on. Offers advice and guidance but doesn't force you into any dietary dogma. Makes herself available in-between lessons if need be. Knowledgeable, funny, and easy to talk to.
