As soon as you get to understand chess well, you'll begin to see it's beauty and depth. Each game is an adventure. I love chess, and that is my perspective of the old and romantic game of kings and queens. I also enjoy teaching it that way, as it makes the game fun to learn and play.

About Eli

Chess can be confusing and difficult sometimes, but really all you need is someone who loves chess to help you love it, and see it for its beauty. We'll play a few games together, so I see where what level you're at, then take you from there. From a beginners level, up to advanced, showing you the

I have been a teacher for 6 years, teaching in a school setting as well as online with elementary-aged students. With this experience I have learned how to cater to the learning needs of individual students. Because crochet requires a certain level of fine motor skills, I start at age 8. In my crochet lessons we will start at a level that is appropriate and work at the students' pace. My lesson plans involve creating simple projects as we learn various stitches that show off their new skills.

About Meagan

I am an elementary teacher that has recently become a stay at home mom. I teach online as an English teacher and now teach crochet! I have been teaching for 6 years and absolutely love helping my students. I have been crocheting for around 5 years and love to create a wide range of projects from ha

GAMING MUSIC FOR PIANO:

This is a special course Ms. Melissa is offering! She is teaching video game music on piano to all those gamers out there!

Ms. Melissa likes to learn video game music in her spare time, from games such as Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and so on.

She understands that a lot of piano students want to learn this type of music, so for a limited time she is offering to skip the introductory classes and get straight to work!

NOTE: This course does not teach the basics of piano (note reading, technique or notation) Ms. Melissa strongly suggests this course for students who already have at least some knowledge of these fundamentals.

NOTE: Can be taken IN CONJUNCTION with regular piano lessons, or on its own!

About Melissa

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!

I have little to no experience with guitar, but Ralph makes it very easy to get started and I began learning technique and chords right away. He clearly has a passion for music, but also experience in teaching others to play. He's not only compassionate and understanding for the difficulties you face as a beginner, but is also ready to challenge you and keep you motivated when learning gets frustrating. You'll progress quickly with him as your teacher.
