Private Calligraphy Teacher

I have studied and practiced various forms of calligraphy and am very experienced in these styles of calligraphy: modern calligraphy, hand lettering, brush lettering, faux calligraphy, and beginner Copperplate calligraphy.

See photos in profile to view my work!

I specialize in teaching students the basics of calligraphy and building the necessary skills to develop their own personal style and create designs that they love! I also teach Ipad calligraphy using the Apple pencil. In addition, I teach students basics of scanning and digitizing their artwork to create designs such as prints, mugs, shirts, greeting cards, and more.

If you’re a beginner, you can expect to cover the basic strokes of calligraphy and receive practice sheets and resources to practice on your own and develop your personal style. I will also recommend best supplies to use to begin your calligraphy journey. You will soon be able to create beautiful calligraphy handwriting and designs on your own!

Esther is the best piano instructor one can ever ask for. She is very patient and takes the time to make sure your child captures and understands everything. I would recommend Esther to anyone and everyone!

Ms. Esther is a great teacher! She was very patient and explained everything very clearly to me so that I could understand. I’ve had multiple piano teachers, but she was the first one that helped me really progress in playing piano and understand music theory. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a piano teacher.

Esther is passionate and knowledgeable about music and she does an incredible job of sharing that passion and knowledge with her students. She instructed my two young boys in a music class along with 6 other young students. She was always prepared and taught the class a variety of musical instruments and the history behind each of them. She instilled a love for music and instruments, into my boys. We were sad to have her move so far away but the knowledge she passed along to my boys, is priceless. We highly recommend Mrs. Esther!

Not only will you build a strong foundation for your calligraphy skills through our lessons together, but we can also discuss how to start and grow your own calligraphy business in advanced lessons.
In the beginner lessons, will go over the very basics, including supplies, dipping the pen in ink, pressure and flow, and basic letter forms. We will keep things as simple as possible as you learn to hold and maneuver the calligraphy pen.
In continued and more advanced lessons, we will add to your existing knowledge and skill level by working on different calligraphy styles, mediums, and supplies together.
With every one on one session together, the lessons will be catered to your skill level and your specific area of interest as these will change as you continue to practice on your own. I'm excited to ...

Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.
