About Marsha
Fall, fall, fall! Beautiful music, beautiful weather, beautiful trees that look like flowers for leaves! We are finishing Halloween pieces and starting Christmas ones! Master Class next month preparation, and a 100 day Music Challenge in full swing. I am currently full except for ONE slot Wed at 4:30, snatch it up quickly!

Goals: Since I am also a Life Coach, we really focus on how to accomplish our hopes and desires. We begin by weekly, then monthly and even a yearly goal.

Each week we also focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. Another is TECHNIQUE. Technique is the ability to have proper position, wrist-lifts and finger curve as well as Theoretic knowledge and application.

I started giving out lickable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet a
nd come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!

It is a great week when students are nearly all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.

Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Julian
I started building and programming robots at a very early age. With over ten years of experience with robotics and computer programming, I'm always excited to share my knowledge! I believe students learn best by formulating their own objectives and dreams. They must build knowledge based on a final goal that may range from a career or one little project. For example, I learned computer programming for my hobbies of building robots and developing video games. I currently study cognitive science at the University of Evansville. In my spare time, I take up inline skates for distance and speed. Getting third place in the Chicagoland Inline Marathon proves my passion for skating.

About Stephen
Why should you take lessons from me?
Well, I started teaching myself piano at age 5. Started playing drums at 10. Went into school band at 11 and played tenor sax in concert and marching band. I picked up guitar at 12 and started my own gigging band and joined the school jazz band. That was the same year I got my first multi-track cassette recorder and have been producing demos and albums ever since. Over the years I've never stopped learning new instruments (just added banjo, flute, and ukulele), never stopped composing, and have gigged with 14+ bands across genres from alt/grunge, rock, to progressive metal, to funk/r&b, reggae, hip hop, industrial/electronic, etc...

Though I didn't attend an expensive university for music like many teachers, earning a BA in game Art/Design gives me a broader expertise from which to draw and a unique
perspective when it comes to music education. I've even been able to integrate my game design experience into my lesson plans with tailor-made Virtual Reality experiences! I think, "why shouldn't you take lessons from me?" would be a much more difficult question to answer.

About Etana
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 11 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.

I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.

I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.

There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas
sion of Design with you.

David is very knowledgeable in writing and specially resume writing.Me and many other students in school have been advised by him for resume writing. He knows different helpful tools to use for making a very professional resume, like valid references to select the best fit words.
During the process of editing my resume he also taught me different methods to update and edit my resume by myself .He spends as much time as he thinks is required to have an excellent result. Also it was clear that due to his valuable experience he has a very wide horizon which leads to his ability of writing various writing texts.
Beside that, he is very passionate and generous to help others and definitely very active updated in the areas of his work. Truly, His nice character makes it really pleasant for anybody to work with him .

He has share with me skills that I had been able to implement in my life to facilitate and expedite my time in the kitchen.

I am a former employee of David's and I had expressed interest with updating and making my resume more advanced. He gave me some of the best advice, suggestions, and even referred me to a couple of websites that proved to be very helpful. During the review process, David first pointed out all of the good aspects I had on my original resume. On the parts he thought should be tweaked or edited, he gave advice and pointers in a positive manner. He also took his time really picking apart the resume, making sure he was giving me 100% of the information that he could. With confidence, I can say I am now very proud of my resume and happy with how my strengths really stand out, thanks to the help given from David.
