Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Central to economics is the theory of demand and supply particularly for micro-economics which involves units of business and households with regard to the distribution of land, labor capital and entrepreneurship. Macro-economics deals with whole economies including global systems. I have worked with UCLA students on ECONOMICS 1 and ECONOMICS 2. In addition I have assisted USC students with their micro-economics and macro-economics including ECON 351 Economics for Business; with some MBA students at UC-BERKELEY I have covered projects and discussions revolving around MBA 201 Economics for Business decision making.

She was the kindest, and the most patient teacher with the greatest teaching method for math and English as a tutor to my son, who is currently studying for his MBA.

Everything You Need to Know About Open Handed Drumming

It’s known by a few names: “Open handed drumming,” playing with a “left hand lead,” playing “uncrossed,” or simply “open.” Whatever you decide to call it, open handed drumming is a way of setting up and playing your drum set so that one hand doesn’t cross over the other while playing the time-keeping cymbals (like the hi-hats, or ride).
