About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

About Arletta
I love teaching and meeting new people. But be warned I like to have fun while I am teaching. In fact I was voted most sarcastic teacher by my students last year. That must be a good thing because I almost always have a waiting list to get into my classes. Don't worry about the sarcasm being aimed at you; it is mostly at my self or a commentary on some issue that defies logic or good sense. Even though I like to have fun, I also love seeing someone understand something they didn't before I taught them. I feel my greatest accomplishment in my history classes is when my students begin thinking for themselves using the analytical and critical thinking tools they have developed in my class.

About Allison
I started knitting 11 years ago, because I wanted to learn how to make longies (cloth diaper covers) for my daughter. I began lessons at a local yarn shop when I was pregnant, learned to cast on/off, knit, and purl, and then my daughter arrived. I spent about 2 years only knitting squares & rectangles, then in 2008 two online knitting friends pushed me to tackle a pattern. It was AWFUL…the ugliest sock ever. The “ribbing” was undetectable, there were at least 2 heels, and the toes didn’t close up.

Now there’s only a few techniques I haven’t tried. Lacework is hard to do with kids in the house. Someone always interrupts while I’m counting, so it’s best for my sanity to avoid it at the moment.

I love cables, fair isle and fades <3

About Laura
I am a bit of an unconventional teacher. I like to hear my lessons around my students best ability to learn. My courses are set at a very comfortable pace and are laid back. I have been contracted to sew costuming that had to pass as historically correct.

Hand sewing a costume for an actress playing Queen Elizabeth the first. Everything had to be hand-sewn from the undergarments to the seven layers that consists of a historically correct tutor costume. I have some pieces for reenactors. I have also been contracted to so for an exhibit in several museums. I have customers all over the world. I also have experience in creating patterns from photos alone or someone's drawing.

I like to share my love of history and sewing. I do this through teaching and sharing. I love to see the excitement in someone's eyes when they put they're very firs
t project on. The fit and comfort of a homemade, handmade item surpasses anything that you can get, unless you go to a Couture shop. Couture sewing is a dying art. One I hope to at least bring more interest in. You're wanting to learn how to make anything from Kilts to Jerkins or corsets to a smart 40s dress suit and everything in between this is the place.

With pattern-making we will learn how to take patterns off of clothes that we love. You know that shirt that fits beautifully but they don't make it anymore. I will also go over some ways to find inexpensive material that still gives you the wow factor.
