I've been teaching Statistics for 6 years. I strive to show students the beauty behind mathematics and encourage them to enjoy it. I work with students at their own pace with the main focus being on developing the confidence to be able to understand what questions are asking and how to solve problems. I prefer to spend the first two lessons testing a student's confidence, strengths, and weaknesses before I select the teaching materials. I cannot wait to help you reach your math goals!

About Kyle

Note: Summer time is generally more flexible for me. However, please contact me before signing up for a time because my schedule is less concrete. I am a Ph.D. student in Statistics and earned a Bachelor's in mathematics from St. Norbert College in 2016. I have been tutoring for over 10 years

We will work together to develop your musicianship and make learning music fun, regardless of age or musical background. Lessons will be at your pace, tailored to your interests, and, perhaps most importantly, will foster a love and understanding of music.

Students will learn songs they love to play — from any genre — while also developing important skills such as learning how to practice, note reading, rhythm, playing by ear, and technique, as well as songwriting, composing, improvisation, and music theory.

About Summer

**In-person lessons at my studio will resume beginning July 15, 2021. Students wishing to take in-person lessons can sign up in advance and, optionally, can begin with online lessons in the meantime.** My primary goal as a teacher is to make music lessons a positive, life-enriching experience for

Summer as been teaching both my daughter's, ages 7 & 11, for little over a year now and we couldn't be happier. I don't know how she does it, patience of an angel, but the girls are growing with their lessons and their love for both piano & guitar weekly. She is always encouraging and full of joy. Summer is a great listener and lets my girls have input in what music they want to learn. It is funny how the music they pick out, fits their personalities so well. Summer is extremely hardworking and punctual. We love to "virtually" invite her in our home every week. We hope one day to meet and see her play in person. Until then we look forward to our weekly sessions with her.

Summer is an excellent teacher! She was very accommodating and encouraging. Looking forward to future lessons!

In teaching lessons, it is my great pleasure to share with students of all ages and skill levels the knowledge that I've gained over 27 years of playing. I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything at any time, given the proper tools!

In our first lesson, we will determine your musical goals and create a realistic path to achieving them. It's my job to help you along this path while keeping things fun.

To maintain focus and week-to-week continuity, I always provide lesson notes to take home. I can also provide recordings of lessons and transcriptions of pieces, if desired.

I am very impressed with Elias! He listened well, offered helpful suggestions, laughed and was very congenial to work with. We discussed how to hold a bow and, since I have some arthritis in my hands, he was very open to other possible options that might work better for me. Taking lessons from him will be a bright spot in my week. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
Gene
A fun and informative lesson. Looking forward to the next one.

Elias is great! My daughter is 7 and this was her first exposure to violin lessons. She loves Elias, says how patient and nice he is, and can’t wait for her next lesson each week. I highly recommend him!

Classical piano is a subject I have taught for over twenty (20) years. As a classically-trained pianist, it has been my main area of focus throughout my teaching and performing careers. If you wish to focus on classical piano, we will cover in-depth music theory during our classes, which is a required component for success in classical piano.

*Please Note*
Online-only piano classes are only available to students who have prior experience. I do not recommend complete beginners to start fully online, as there are beginners' nuances that are much better addressed in-person!

We are so thankful we found Patrick! Patrick is a very effective teacher who’s able to relate and motivate students. Our daughter was loosing interest in playing piano due to her former teacher’s approach. Now she’s back to practicing because she wants to and is so excited to see Patrick each week. We are very greatful that she’s back to loving piano and continuing to learn.

Hello!

I am a private music instructor specializing in woodwind instruments looking to take on clarinet, flute and saxophone students!

My lessons consist of a well balanced coverage of exercises (scales, note patterns, etudes, duets, major repertoire, etc) geared towards building a solid foundation in playing technique. This allows each student to be accurate and expressive with a sense of ease in their playing! Students of the studio are also thrown into the world of music! They are strongly encouraged to attend concerts, listen to music regularly, and attend masterclasses. The goal is not just to learn an instrument, but to also develop a life-long love and appreciation for music!

I am very proud to say that my students soar through their band and orchestra programs in school and obtain a sound quality/sense of musicality way beyond their grade level! The majority of my students excel past their school music programs! They join youth/honor bands and orchestras, chamber ...

I believe that everyone has the ability to enjoy and be expressive on an instrument. It is poor instruction and a lack of passion in music education that allows students to become frustrated and bored, ultimately pushing them to quit their instruments. My goal as a music educator is not only to t

What is Acting: A Deeper Look at the Craft

Hollywood actress, Rosalind Russell once said; “Acting is standing up naked and turning around very slowly.” Although meant as a joke, this is the best description of acting I have ever heard.

But what exactly is the craft?  The History of Acting In order to truly understand acting, one must understand the history of the craft. And, what a history i …

Read on as teacher Matthew H. shares his advice...    While becoming an actor may seem extremely difficult in and of itself, without any experience it may even feel nearly impossible. However, what we often fail to realize is that the process alone of becoming an actor is filled with lessons that add to our overall experience and skill set. In fact, there's actually no such t …

Can You Really Learn Contemporary Dance Online?

Contemporary dance is the most expressive and subjective dance form, making it more accessible to outsiders and helpful as a supplement to other dance training. Contemporary choreography techniques help dancers harness the energy and emotion of their own bodies, resulting in a more fluid and organic form of movement that can appear effortless and completely improvised to the casual observer. You have a lot of options when it comes to learning, practicing, and performing modern dance. And with t …
