In 1995 I taught children from Kindergarten to 4th grade Music at Liberty Christain Cathedral. In 2000 she worked at The Dayton Academy teaching music classes to elementary school children. In 2006 she taught voice to a school choir at Nehemiah University. In 2007 she successfully taught voice and performance to a Senior Choir at Wesley Community Center. The Senior Choir had many Choir performances. Also in 2007,she taught voice lessons and keyboard lessons to a youth choir at Maranatha Worship Center for seven years. she cond
ucted a Black History choir and several Christmas Plays. She has successfully taught students in the past who have become music teachers and music directors in a church or school setting. She has taught students from various backgrounds. Music is my passion because it is international communication. It ministers to my soul and spirit.

I can teach you basic skills in a step-by-step curriculum fashion or I can help you create a specific project that you have in mind. Do you want something special for an event or do you want to make something out of some fun fabric you found? I am very flexible and enjoy being creative, so bring me your challenge and I will help you give it life!

About Sarah
Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! I have been an artist for my whole life and I am passionate about sharing my love of creativity with others. I earned an MFA in Costume Design from UCLA in 2007 and have been a freelance costume designer, college professor, photographer, illustrator, and jewelry designer.

As much as I love to create, what I really love is to help somebody learn to do something they love and create something they can be proud of! I am happy teaching all ages, and I specialize in helping each student find his or her unique vision.

I can teach sewing by hand and on a machine, including how to read and understand the instructions in commercial patterns. Bring your project and I'll help you make it happen! I am highly skilled at teaching life drawing, as well as marker rendering and watercolor fashion illustr
ation. Photography is my other passion, and I look forward to helping you understand how to use a camera's many features, and your eye, to create art.

The two hour lesson was perfect for me. I needed a refresher course and Sarah reviewed all the areas of concern. At this time I do not have a follow up appointment set. I want to take what was discussed today and apply it to my sewing projects. I would definitely recommend Sarah for any of your sewing needs.

Hello there. My experience with the QiGong is one of beginning to pass on the great training I have had. Not only in the QiGong. It is the strength and beauty of movement in other martial arts, yoga, nature hikes.

My background with the arts, holistic practitioning, home education based on waldorf model, and even clothing design and making enhance the interaction we have.

Bringing forth from past experiences to you. This movement helps with weight issues, actively helps eliminate back issues, and can help to eliminate other physical issues.

About Lesley
Hey there! Thanks for reading my profile! I am so excited to work with you and share my passion for creating custom items through sewing! I got my first machine when I was nine years old! It was instant joy! I love teaching! I love sharing tricks and helping others make their dream projects come true. As a mom and grandma I have enjoyed teaching my own kids to sew. I also work as a Birth Doula (coaching) and substitute teacher.

I have owned my own in-home sewing business where I performed wedding alterations, general alterations and custom sewing. My greatest love is to instruct students in the art of quilting and sewing. The accomplishment of a student's successfully finished project is such a highlight!

As a mother of twelve (* seven boys and five girls) I have created 75% of my families wardrobe as well as quilts, gifts, diapers
, jackets, pillows, purses, backpacks, workout wear, couch slip covers, curtains, toys, dolls...etc, There is nothing so satisfying then the ability to create something unique that you love. Let's get started on your next project!

Learn how to sew clothing that fit you and your style! Learning how to sew can be complicated. Starting from Beginning level to advance level. I will teach you how to understand and use a pattern. Along with constructing PJ pants, sewing terminology and more. As you move up each level, you'll continue to learn more sewing techniques while creating pant/skirt, button down shirt and tailored blazer.

About Margaret
Hello sewers!
My experience in sewing goes way back. I tell my students I've been sewing for 100 years! I started sewing when I was 10 years old. I continue learning throughout high school into college. I also went to school for fashion design in Paris, France. I've designed my own line and was in a few stores. But I realized that teaching the beautiful art was what I was placed on this earth to do. I've been teaching now for 11 years. Six of those years, I have done in my own location. I enjoy teaching youth to adults. I think the best part is the expression on their face when they complete their garment. Priceless!
