About Marsha
And... it is summer. There are lots of things and people we LOVE. I like to focus on those good feelings, and music that uplifts and enriches. We are really working on our OWN music compositions this month.

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 and 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.

I just wanted one lesson as an intro to gymnastics, and Christian is great! Thanks to him I'm more confident with my backflip and with just one more lesson I believe I can get it down. Definitely recommend! I might add gymnastics to one of my hobbies thanks to him.

I have been taking ballet lessons with Imani for the past month, and I could not be happier with the instruction that she has given me. Her attention to detail is incredible, and she is always 100% committed to perfecting my technique. She is genuinely interested in helping her students, and she even creates detailed lesson plans specific to her students. She is very personable and introduces new ballet movements and terminology in a fun and encouraging way. Also, my flexibility has greatly improved within only one month as a result of her effective conditioning that she incorporates into her lessons. I highly recommend Imani as a dance teacher! - Lauren Gold

I've been using Djuana life coaching services for a few weeks now and it's truly been one of the most enlightening experiences I've had. I've never been the type of person to seek help in the form of life coaching or therapy but I was struggling with maintaining discipline and focus on a major project and figured this would help, and so far I've gotten way more out of this than I could've imagined! She's helped me get to the root of my struggles and provided tools and guidance to accomplish my goals. I would highly recommend her services!

About Lori
Lori grew up overseas & comfortable on stage from a very young age. With a huge love for ensembles and teamwork, harmony came very naturally to her. It was obvious early on that music was life-giving, and a source of joy. She studied music at Azusa Pacific University and received her B.A. in Music, with an emphasis in Church Music and with Voice as her primary instrument, adding on optional classes like Vocal Pedagogy and performing in 5 languages at her Senior Voice Recital. Her most thrilling performance was singing Mahler's 2nd Symphony with the Apollo Chorus of Chicago in downtown Chicago in May 2016. She loves coaching and teaching one-on-one and helping build on the individual's natural gifting and seeing them radiate confidence! She believes the foundations of voice are crucial and open the doors to your musical path.

About Jennifer
Hello! I am a Certified Fusion Mat Pilates Instructor specializing in a blend of traditional Pilates, Yoga, HIIT and body weight training (certification from Set and Flow Yoga). My workouts build lean muscle, burn body fat and leave you feeling energized and awesome! I am available to teach private or small group lessons ranging from 30 - 120 mins. (I am flexible if you need more or less time).

I've been practicing Pilates and Yoga for 6 years and I used to train and compete for Spartan Races professionally. I love to incorporate all different types of new movements to keep your body guessing and to hit new muscle groups. I will modify and customize each workout based on your preferences and capabilities. If you want a challenge, let me know! If you need to dial it back, we find something that works for you. If you are local in LA and
interested in taking our workouts outside to parks or on hikes, this would be a great way to squeeze in extra cardio.

I will also assist all of my clients with nutrition as well as mindfulness training to work on building up positive body image and self-love. I believe it is just as important to exercise the mind as it is the body. We will focus on your breathing and stretching before and after workouts.

I am available to make house calls, teach at outside locations, my apartment complex or online!! All clients are also able to call/email/Skype/text me 24/7 with questions related to diet/nutrition/exercise or if you just need someone to talk to.

About Nicole
Imagine lying down on your mat. You take a deep breath, expand your lungs and belly, and allow yourself to melt more into the mat with every exhalation. Your whole body relaxes. Your mind relaxes. You feel the energy you just created in a your yoga class and let go. You notice the energy flowing from the top of your head, down your body and you know you just created something special. That's what my very first yoga class was like almost 15 years ago. I fell in love with yoga and now I share my knowledge and passion for yoga, meditation, and all things health and wellness related to students every day.

I have been practicing and learning for almost 15 years love helping others improve their lives. I'm a 200-RYT, NASM Certified personal trainer, meditation and Reiki 1 & 2 practitioner. I have been teaching students ages 15-90 from begi
nner to advance. I truly enjoy inspiring students to learn to love their body & mind more and improve their quality of life. In each class students have the opportunity to learn

• Breath-work
• Relaxation techniques
• Poses, modifications, and variations
• Consistency and mindfulness
• Proper form and techniques
• Different forms of meditation
• Mind/muscle connection
• Concentration and endurance
• Yogic history and philosophy

The more I teach the more I learn and I put in the effort to practice on and off the mat. You’re smart, so you already know anything worth doing takes work and consistency. Yoga teaches you that. In order to see its benefits you need to be consistent. That's why it's called a yoga practice. According to Harvard Health and Psychology Today yoga benefits beyond the mat include but are not limited to:

• Increased Vitality
• Reduced Fatigue and Inflammation
• Better Body Image
• Regulated Cortisol (Your stress hormone)
• Elevated Mood
• Overall better quality of life

I’ve learned the times I need yoga the most are the times I try to avoid it. So what are you avoiding? I like to have open communication with my students and create a class to suit their needs because everybody is different just like every body is different. Sign up for classes with me today and allow me to be your guide as you embark on an amazing journey, guaranteed to change your life.

Namaste and with love,

Nicole

Nicole is a fantastic teacher with a genuine desire to help. She will teach you how to gain a further understanding of each pose and give you tiny tweaks on how to go deeper. When you think you have reached your physical limit you'll hear her whisper breathe and you'll sink deeper into it. Absolutely incredible at what she does.

I was first exposed to yoga in 2009 as a college student and was so impressed with how relaxing and beneficial it was. I immediately fell in love with yoga and could really notice the benefits of daily practice! After years of practice, I knew that I wanted to help spread the love to those who are new to yoga. I understand that it can be intimidating, so I go out of my way to make sure that I provide a positive and loving atmosphere for my students. I specialize in Hatha Yoga, and can also teach laughter yoga and yoga for children.
