About Gilbert
I have worked for many Colleges and Kids Sports organizations. I have been background checked many times. I also teach kids of many ages at The Arbor Learning Center home schooling group.

Mr. M. is a CG artist. Like many, his love for art started in grade school and evolved in high school. While running his own T-Shirt Design company, "Extreme Limitations", he was able to quickly see the power of design, layout, color, and typography.

With over twenty years of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Prototype Design, Game Art, and Motion Graphics, Mr. M. now spends his time teaching students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Anim
ation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

About Lindsay
Online lessons are also available at 30 and 45 minute durations please call takelessons to book. In home and in studio classes are a 1 hour minimum.

Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passi
on for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their outlook. I’m an eager student, so I’m constantly teaching new stuff I’ve recently learned. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Please inquire about rates for semi privates, group, and corporate training.

In studio lessons are available as well inquire for details.

I love taking my online classes with Lindsay! Having a really busy schedule, I thought at first this was an indulgence to have a class in the comfort of my own home, however I've rethought that since I've started. These are necessary to keeping, not just my physique in shape, but my ballet up to par, as well as my mental state of being calm, focused & happy. Lindsay is very skilled at shifting each class to what is best for me that day. She's skilled & knowledgeable, proficient, professional, friendly, fun & gives me a thorough workout! Thank you Lindsay!

Taught me a choreography that I needed to perform in a few hours for a video we were recording on the same day. Even though it was last-minute, he showed Marvelous patience and an ethereal calmness to his instructions. Once you get the feeling of his dance choreography, you start getting the “swag” or the flow of the whole vision which makes learning dance with him a Resplendent experience! Definitely the Most-skilled, exceptionally gifted and purposeful choreographer I’ve ever known! MUST take classes with KENN...I would!

Hello, My name is Allan and I have been playing drums/percussion for 24 years. I started off in the orchestra in middle school and have never stopped playing since then. I am a touring/studio musician playing with all different types of artist and styles. (I do not teach metal. Sorry never got into it) I specialize in funk/rock/jazz/blues/country/ and pop.

I make lessons fun and interesting. Sure there are times when you have to read out of a book, but I use fun and creative ways to take that material and apply it to each students needs.

Here at my house I am equipped with 2 drumsets, practice pad drumset, organ, piano, and guitars as well as recording capabilities to hear your progress. I also have an electronic drums set to come to your house if you are unable to travel.

I love music and I want to help you be comfortable i

I am promoting caring for your mind, body and spirit through exercising, stretching and using some kind of tool for myofascial release/ massage. I have experience working with both men and women, from beginners to high-school, college and professional athletes.

Stay moving!
