About Kay
I have been teaching Piano for 20 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major, you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn, but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping t
hem love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess incorrect performances in an honest, but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that, though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics and gain the ability to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and Pop

About Justin
After studying at Drexel University and securing a B.S. in Information Technology with a Minor in English Literature, I studied for a Master's in Digital Media at Drexel University. As an undergraduate I was given the honor of acting as the commencement speaker for my school. As an MS graduate, I earned the Outstanding Master's award for my research and community contributions.

Drexel's professors and leadership supported my growth as a professional by hiring me on as an Adjunct Professor of Digital Media where I taught game design, project management, and 3D animation. I also served as a committee member to several graduate students. I've recently entered the games industry as a designer, embarking on a year-long game engineer position with Disney. I'm most rewarded when I provide mentorship to those who want to learn. I look forward
to working with you!

I wrote a review when my son first started working with Justin and a few months later I must say the experience continues to be exceptional. Justing puts so much thought into preparing for his lessons. He pays attention to what works best with my son's learning style and personality and is able to shift gears when necessary. He is extremely knowledgeable and not only recommends resources but answers questions via email between sessions. My son is feeling much more confident and has started to read books and articles on game design. I was so impressed that I started working with Justin as well. He has been an excellent HTML and CSS tutor and I am not at all a techie. I can't recommend him enough!

My son took his first online computer programming lesson with Justin yesterday. He had been trying to learn to code/make video games on his own but was finding it difficult to determine where to focus his energies. The lesson with Justin exceeded his expectations. He feels focussed and learned more in his first session than he has in the few weeks he has been trying on his own. I was impressed with Justin's prompt response to my initial inquiry which went out to several tutors. From his response it was clear that Justin had put a lot of thought into his response. He asked follow up questions was able to clearly articulate how he could address my sons needs. He put the same thought an energy into preparing the first lesson which he shared with us prior to the session. My son is looking forward to continuing to work with Justin. We will definitely be booking more lessons.

I purchased a lesson with Athan as a Christmas gift and received RAVE reviews from his student about the experience! He loved the interaction and the way Athan was able to tailor the lesson very specifically to hone certain skills. Athan was extremely professional, easy to interact with and overall a great instructor. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve his/her poker playing.!!

Athan is a great instructor. He's patient, methodical, and adaptive. We had him for a group lesson, and he made learning poker super fun and easy to understand for us newbies. Even my husband, who is a seasoned pro, said he got a lot out of it. Highly recommend!

About Ainslie
I am an intuitive, Jungian-based astrologer. A life-long yoga practitioner, I presently run a yoga nonprofit. Daily meditation is essential to me. I had my astrology chart done on a whim in the early 90's and immediately became enthralled with the art.

I began my daily blog, featuring Street Art from around the World, in April of 2013. I published two of my novels, written in the late 90's, this year as well. With an MA in counseling Psychology, and a PhD in Philosophy and Religion, I bring a psychological and philosophical perspective to my work. My PhD, from the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, concentrated on symbol systems and Jungian Psychology. With over twenty five years experience in astrological counseling, I impart a unique, artistic vision, to my workshops and readings.

Ainslie is equally patient and dynamic in her teaching style. Moreover, the breathe of her astrology knowledge is unparalleled, and she effortlessly imparts a thorough knowledge of the subject in terms that are clear and concise. After my own lessons, I would enthusiastically recommend Ainslie to any student interested in gaining a comprehensive understanding of astrology.

Ainslie has given me two astrology readings.. both of which have given me a deeper understanding of astrology and myself. She is meticulous with her work and very patient while explaining all the information she gives, you can clearly see this in her weekly blogs. What I loved most about Ainslie readings is that you really feel how passionate she is about Astrology and this makes the experience so much more meaningful and fun! Thank you Ainslie!

My son USCF rating 1400+ took a trial lesson with Danial. Danial is methodical and systematic in his coaching. He was quick to identify what my son needs to improve in order to get to the next level. The most important thing is that my son enjoyed his one-hour lesson and literally felt that the lesson time flew by as it felt like only 2 minutes long to him. My son gives Danial thumbs up and 5 stars.
