I started learning Ukulele with Kevin and then picked up Guitar lately, Kevin has a systematic way of teaching, instead of covering each and every chords, he summarizes them by different shapes, and also their variations, so you can memorize the basics and find their "relative" chords easier. He also taught music theories, how each chord is formed, and if you want to play a specific song, he's also glad to help on finding the exact chord and transfer them into different notes that suits you. Definitely have your notebook ready since there's a lot to learn. The harder thing for myself is with the online class, it's not as efficient as a face-to-face one, I also tend to be less motivated to practise but you ought to just find your own motivation!
Jennifer Closson
I have been involved in singing for many years now and I can tell you that Kevin knows what he is doing with his special skills teaching voice and guitar. I feel lucky to have found him and I hope to continue learning from him for a long time.
Anthony
Kevin offers helpful advice and insight. An instructor with a deep understanding of music, he demonstrates a great ability to guide new students. He brought clarity to problems I experienced as a new guitar player. I highly recommend inviting Kevin into your music journey.

Bharata Natyam is one of the classical dances from India. A rich dance with rhythmic foot work, strong and graceful movements and expressions. The class is taught by an expert Bharat Natyam dancer and teacher who comes from the Mysore Palace tradition. The form is taught with care for great detail, expression and wonderful rhythm work. The class is suitable for all age groups including the elderly. Try this art form and you will see how much beauty is there in our bodies and our expressions. This a great form for actors too.

I've been looking for a teacher like Aparna throughout my life so I'm pretty happy I finally found a good guru. I learn both dance (Bharathanatyam) and yoga from her via Skype. Her attention to detail, insight and expertise, and inspirational teaching style have re-instilled my confidence and commitment as an artist. Highly and strongly recommend!
Avani
Aparna is a wonderful teacher and I am so glad to be learning from her. I have been taking Bharatanatyam lessons from Aparna for over four years via video-call. She has a strong command of the dance form and teaches it in an accessible way. She encourages creativity alongside developing a strong base. Even via video, she can see the details of my dancing and correct me appropriately. I had taken Bharatanatyam lessons for a couple of years when young, and done various dance styles throughout my life, but wanted to get back into it as an adult. I mostly do one-on-one classes but also joined a few group classes and I see that she is a good teacher for people of all ages. I've grown so much as a dancer and am really grateful for her guidance.
Smitha
Aparna Sindhoor is a master-level Bharata Natyam dancer with a lifetime of insight and experience. Her teaching is customized, non-judgemental, and elevates your body, mind, and spirit. I started taking classes with Dr. Sindhoor six years ago after decades of Bharata Natyam learning and performance. I am continuously learning something new from her. She is flexible, understanding, and yet maintains the highest artistic standards. I strongly recommend her to any dancer looking for a dedicated, compassionate teacher in dance and life.
