Piano is skill that is kinetic as well as audible and visual. It is something that will take you from childhood long through your life. I have taught for many years (25+) and have found that students with enthusiasm and dedication can accomplish whatever they set their goals to do. Since I am also a life-coach, my students benefit from many years of experience as well as bonus skills like goal-setting, tools to get over humps as well as Master Classes and Theory expertise. Music is what moves the universe!

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

I begin by focusing on the basics of the flute, such as knowing the parts of the flute, how to hold the flute with good posture, making that first sound, having the correct embouchure, and some breathing techniques. Then we progress to learning basic note-reading and rhythms, while incorporating several beginner flute fingerings, then moving on to learning simple songs.

I typically use the Accent on Achievement series for flute or the Rubank flute series or a combination of the two, depending on the student's ability/level.

If the student plays in band at school, we may also take time to work on music for that as well, giving the student the individual attention that they may miss in a group/classroom setting. Flute lessons are also a great way to keep up with practice when school is out for holiday breaks or summer.

About Donna

I have been teaching music for 21 years, both in private lesson and classroom settings. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Shenandoah University & Conservatory and I have experience teaching all age groups, from age 3 through senior adults, and every age in between. I enjoy teachin

I've been fortunate enough to study with some of the top acting coaches and teachers around the world! This has given me a unique arsenal of “actor’s tools” that I’m happy to share with you. I love helping actors get extreme clarity on a scene and their character in record time. I also give you fun, fast, tips and tricks on character discovery, memorization, on-camera techniques and audition mastery that you can use for a lifetime. Whether it’s for an audition, agent or manager reading or casting director meet and greet, I love helping actors bring scenes to life in ways they hadn’t thought of before!

About Hunter

I love to help new performers and people looking to break into the biz, as well as seasoned actors who want to up-level their career or deepen their craft. I have been coaching actors since 2008 and have a unique combination of experience and training to help you launch your career and create work

Only had a couple of sessions but great so far. Hunter is really fast and sessions are fun! Great to study with a coach that has actually done live improv. Just trying to get my skills up to go out and try it with a group.

only one word, good!
Stephanie
Oh my gosh! I am so in love with Hunter I would recommend her to everyone! I’m just trying to get into voiceovers and she has been so helpful and encouraging. She’s also really honest in helping you find your strengths and your weaknesses but is totally easy going about it, never pushy, just really wants you to succeed. I’m working on my skills a lot but also where is going to be the best place for me to find work. Super excited to keep going with this and maybe even a new career!

"Cara, was a spectacular teacher. She taught my twin girls for two years. She kept them engaged both in violin and piano. Cara made these lessons fun! She was both caring and effective in her teaching, and my girls looked forward to seeing her EVERY week. Cara does a great job of boosting the child's self confidence. It is amazing to see our children grow into a wonderful musicians. We miss her terribly.....and would have stayed with her until my girls had graduated. I am grateful that she was able to be apart of my children's lives. Cara has given my daughters a great love of music that will last forever."

"My main goal in searching for s voice coach was to find a teacher who would challenge me to grow while at the same time help me to build confidence and a sense of freedom when singing. In my very first lesson, Stephanie had me hitting notes that I had not been able to sing for at least a decade. Amazing! Stephanie possesses all of the qualities I was looking for in a vocal coach and more. She is knowledgeable, skillful, patient, compassionate, and flexible. I definitely have seen growth in my skill and abilities, and I look forward to continuos improvement with her as my coach. I highly recommend her services!"

"When three different people tell you they have the best piano teacher in the world and it ends up that they all take from the same teacher, you tend to listen. That is how we came to find Kelly Jenkins (Miss Kelly) when we moved to a new area. Her business card said “Gift of Music Piano Lessons” and spoke of developing each child’s individual gift for music. One friend confirmed this claim and commented how her children actually wanted to practice for Miss Kelly. That seemed a bit hard to believe at first. But in the three years we were blessed to learn from Miss Kelly, we found this to be true—not only for my son and daughter that took piano lessons from her, but for my younger children who got excited about music and piano from watching their older siblings and being cared about by Miss Kelly.

Miss Kelly has an excellent knowledge of music—both performance and theory. But more importantly for a teacher, she is able to convey that knowledge in a positive, effectual way. Perhaps this is due in part to being the oldest of ten children. But from whatever source, she is able to teach and correct in a way that leaves the learner feeling empowered, not diminished. She is very friendly, professional, and respectful. We were looking for a teaching experience that was not overly stringent but that would develop a solid musical foundation for a lifetime of music love and service. We are very happy with Miss Kelly’s ability to provide that.

Needless to say, when Miss Kelly moved, we were sad to see her go. Yet we are still able to maintain a friendship—even across the country. We have even been blessed to hire her, on occasion, as a consultant when music questions have arisen that we knew she could help with.

In short, we highly recommend Miss Kelly."
