My s
tudents can expect to have fun while still incorporating discipline. All students will learn different styles and techniques from various styles of music to expand their musical talents and knowledge. Even if your focus is classical music, you can still expect to learn some jazz, pop, etc. Students can also expect to work on breathing exercises, diction, basic piano, basic guitar, sight reading, ear training, proper singing techniques as well as the anatomy of the throat. After a few months students will see tremendous improvements in the areas mentioned above as well as gain more confidence, individuality, creativity, adoration for the art and be able to execute their vocal instrument efficiently and beautifully!

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound
way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying

About Stephanie
After 15 years working in high-tech I had enough of the constant stress, demanding work and long hours scrunched at my desk trying to solve other peoples issues. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do next so I started taking classes in anything that sounded interesting. I took my first cooking class at the local community college and loved the way it made me feel. It wasn't until I took my first baking class in this degree program that I knew I was home. After graduating with a hospitality management degree, I transferred to Johnson and Wales University in Rhode Island to earn a degree in Pastry Arts

My first job was with the Rhode Island Hospital. This hospital had received great recognition for the quality of food the kitchen produced. The director wanted to create a pastry program to expand the selections even more. Thus starte
d my career.

Coming back to the bay area, I wanted a more autonomous position, so I went into business for my self; first with a whole sale bakery which morphed into a catering business. I did this for 12 years, and loved it. All this time I was teaching community baking classes, adult education baking and pastry classes, and teaching part time at Mission College in Santa Clara.

I was then asked by Mission Valley ROP program to create a culinary/pastry program from scratch. It was a real challenge, but I found I really like challenges. From there I went to work for Whole Foods as a Pastry Chef.

After a few years of working for WFM I started teaching at the Art Institute in San Francisco. From there I went to Le Cordon Bleu, Also in San Francisco.

In the middle of all this I got married to a wonderful man.

The Cordon Bleu closed in September of 2016. Which brings me to the present. I am passionate about teaching baking and pastry, and hope to create a program which will allow students to understand baking, not to just follow recipes. My goal is to flame the creativity, and passion in my student, and fuel the desire to keep learning.

About Yulia Karuntu
Hello there, how are you? I’m 22 and I’m from Milan, Italy I live in the Usa. I moved here because I really wanted to learn English. My biggest passion is traveling because I think it’s the best way to know the culture of the countries and to learn new languages.
The Italian language is really beautiful, and I think it’s also pretty easy to learn it if you really want to 😃

About Jyoti
Love Indian food, but need help in cooking....I am here to help!!

Hi, My name is Jyoti Janoria - wife and mother of two children. I am passionate about healthy and creative Indian cooking and have helped others with their desire to learn the art of cooking a wide variety of food from the Indian cuisine!

I was born and raised in India in a family where cooking has been a part of our heritage for generations. In addition to picking up the cooking style and well recognized recipes/cooking style from my mother, I have adapted and have been very creative with my own cooking style.

After pursuing my career in the Information Technology industry for over a decade, I decided to follow my passion to cook and teach others how to make healthy, flavorful and creative meals for themselves and their families. My cooking style is unique due to
the extensive cooking experience I have had from a very early age, and the ability to create and customize the dishes per your taste and liking!

I am an extremely outgoing and fun-loving person. My classes are fun, interactive and intuitive. The feedback I have received from the people I have taught is highly encouraging and it’s a very gratifying feeling to pass on my learning and expertise.

I believe, anyone can cook, but not many can maintain the consistency in flavors. So come join this fun cooking joy ride with me where your options are endless !!!
