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

Wow! This lady was oozing knowledge galore! Not only she knows what she claims, but she quickly sees other marketing aspects of the cyberworld and shortcomings of the website! She is extremely talented lady who cares about what she does. She is worldly and helpful with invaluable suggestions to improve SEO qualities of the site!

Initially, I have committed to only one session. I have purchased 3 more sessions. Donna ROCKS!!!

Courtney has been such an inspirational teacher. She has taken me from absolute zero to feeling like I can actually do something with confidence now. This during only two lessons. Courtney has a very gracious and friendly teaching style with me which I find very patient and comforting while learning something challenging.

Sonya was very helpful with getting started. I honestly didn't have a super solid plan of what to ask and only had a simple goal in mind, but she was able to work with that no problem. I'm very glad that I chose her as a teacher.

How Long Have I Been Sewing?

I have been sewing for 40 plus years. I started sewing in my home economics class in junior high school. At the time I didn't know how valuable it would be for me to have the background of knowing how to sew by the rules. In my sewing class I learned all the basics of sewing, things like grain lines, pattern layout and cutting, reading a pattern guide sheet, pressing, parts of a sewing machine, how to thread a sewing machine etc... I can't stress how important it was to have a real person teaching me the basic of sewing. From the basic fundamental instructions I received in that class I was able to sew just about anything, of course I continued to gain as much knowledge about sewing as I could and as of today I'm still learning new sewing techniques that are definitely enhancing my basic sewing skills. The
re is always something new to learn in the world of sewing!

~Sewing is a all time favorite craft for many and I think it's time to get back to stitching!

I'm a life-long learner and avid seamstress. I have been sewing since I was a young child and learned from my grandmother basic hand sewing. From there I learned other techniques through books, trial and error, and hands-on classes how to sew professional looking garments, quilts and bags.

I love everything about sewing from the ideas to the creation. It is a slow process and can be a lot of fun if you take your time and can enjoy the process. I want to teach others this amazing skill.

About Kathleen
I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself.

Now I have 10 years of continuous experience sewing for myself, friends, and family. I've made seasonal pillow covers, tiny shirts for my little cousins, and lots of dresses for my Mom. (How the tables have turned!)

I would love to help you discover how fun and easy sewing can be. If you're a curvy woman, like I am, buying clothes that fit can be super frustrating. That's why I went from sewing costumes to making day-to-day clothes for myself. It can seem intimidating at first, but most women just need some basic adjustments on every pattern to make them
fit perfectly. I promise your wardrobe will never be the same again!
