About Marsha
The Recital was fabulous- thanks for all your work.

Goals: Since I am also a Life Coach, we really focus on how to accomplish our hopes and desires. We begin by weekly, then monthly and even a yearly goal.

Each week we also focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. Another is TECHNIQUE. Technique is the ability to have proper position, wrist-lifts and finger curve as well as Theoretic knowledge and application.

I started giving out lickable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet and come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!

It is a great week when students are nearly all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.

Perhaps you are reading
this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About Jannette
Hello! I am Jannette from Los Angeles, CA. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design from The Art Institute. I've been a Freelance Designer for about 5 years now and sewing for 10 years. Sewing has been a great interest of mine since my early High School days. My experience includes, construction (sewing), pattern-making, draping, illustration by hand and computer (Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop), Fabric sourcing/ identification and overall creating amazing garments.

I love teaching my clients how to sew. I am very detailed oriented in regards to my pattern-making and construction. I believe sewing is a wonderful skill to learn as a creative outlet and can be very relaxing. I enjoy creating wearable art and teaching others to master the skill. A great tool to produce quality garments besides a sewing machine is a great iron...I alw
ays say!

My style is very versatile. My interests varies from vintage looks to today's modern styles. I can teach at different speeds and skill levels depending on the student. I am highly skilled in sewing and fashion related subjects.

Please feel free to contact me regarding your interest in learning how to sew! Let's SEW ON!

Jannette is very professional, friendly, and an excellent teacher! My daughter and I thoroughly enjoy Jannette's confident ease and patient demeanor while providing us instruction based on her years of academy level course work and current seamstress experience of which she obviously enjoys performing in her spare time. Thank you Jannette, for taking the time to help my 12-year-old daughter understand many basic skills and the joy of sewing!

About Siddharth
Hi there, my name is Siddharth and I have been teaching chess in public and private schools, including private lessons, over the last three years.

I love to see students grow with each lesson and accomplish their goals. Under my tutelage, I have helped students advance from beginner level to tournament level competition. Recently, two of my students have won in their respective tournaments.

I attended De Monte Fort University in England and earned my degree in Textile Technology and Business Management in 1976. Since then I have been fortunate to be able to travel worldwide.

I enjoy teaching children of all ages, as well as adults. My philosophy is to make chess a fun experience while improving my students' technical skills.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals.

I am 25 and have been crocheting and teaching others within the last few years. I recently moved to Georgia from Virginia. I Would love to get to know others by teaching and creating together. Crocheting is healing in many ways and will help with focus, concentration and natural creative energy flow. I love working one on one with others and I am very patient. I have made many eclectic crochet projects outside of the basics. I have made scarves, hats, tops, slippers, head warmers, steering wheel covers, bathing suits, drawstrings bags, backpacks and head rest covers for the car. I am currently working on a vest. I am available to do all types of projects.

About Celeste
Hello, fellow creatives!
I got into sewing when I was 17 years old after getting my first sewing machine (as requested) for Christmas. I really wanted to make my own raver wear and the first thing I made was butterfly printed pants. I loved being able to express myself thru the costumes I made and have been ever since!
I have made everything from traditional Halloween costumes (cheerleader, poison ivy, ringmaster, genie etc) to costumes for burning man for myself and all my friends including my boyfriends, to costumes for performers like professional hula hoopers, fire spinners, stilt walkers, dancers, and DJs. Basically, I help anyone who wants to have fun while they look fabulous in their own one of a kind costume.
Some of my more notable creations have been- Steampunk couple including steampunk toy gun, Mad hater that won a
costume contest, Derek from Zoolander, Sun goddess with headpiece, rainbow bright, His and hers Space cadet costumes and so many more!

About Diana
Hello there- I'm Professor Diana Smith.

As a teacher, I have incorporated values just as a company sets values for their business. A few of my values is to give my students transparency, motivation, practical experiences and autonomy. I currently serve as a Business Communication Professor.

I get REALLY excited about a lot of things. Marketing, Business, Communication, and writing-- but also tacos & nachos, cosmetics, coffee, reading personal development books, practicing positivity and optimism by blogging and vlogging!

I am a creative, I write poetry, short stories and self help blog post. I love to create.

One of my best pieces of advice to anyone, is to read a book! There is so much peace you can find in reading.

My life is filled with sunshine because of my 9 year old son name Carter -who enjoys basketball and Fortni
te. He also enjoys spending all of my money on v-bucks.
For me- providing awareness and educating my students is a passion.

There is fun to be had in every classroom and every learning environment.

My #1 goal is to help you understand the dynamics of the modern business environment while understanding the way communication influences each business facet.
Anything you need, just ask. I may not have the answer but I will find the answer.
