About Marsha
Fall, fall, fall! Beautiful music, beautiful weather, beautiful trees that look like flowers for leaves! We are finishing Halloween pieces and starting Christmas ones! Master Class next month preparation, and a 100 day Music Challenge in full swing. I am currently full except for ONE slot Wed at 4:30, snatch it up quickly!

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 a
nd 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.

Ash Is a excellent teacher she helped me to calm myself when i get anxious. She teaches different kind of techniques to help when you're feeling overwhelmed or just teaching that feeling you feel it's just a feeling not you and how to let it go or put your attention on it and watch it go away after a few tries!

Ash is amazing! I started with her two years ago. I had sever anger issues, and I was all over the place. She taught me really cool tools like "dropping" your mind, light mediation, and more...I really recommend learning from her. She is great at explaining things and has helped me a lot in my meditation journeys. When I look at myself now, I feel more calm and accomplished thanks to her.

Ash is an excellent teacher, from what I have seen firsthand. A true expert in communicating and helping others understand the lessons at hand. With her patient and gentle approach, I would think that anybody would be able to learn from her. I have had the pleasure of watching her teach both children and adult, and I have learned a great deal in the process, and consider myself a student of hers aswell. I highly recommend her to teach your children or anyone for that matter.

About Nicole
I currently have 28 piano/music students that I teach weekly. Both the students and I enjoy the piano lessons very much, and I am looking to teach it full-time. I have a natural way of communicating and teaching music and also make the experience very unique as I incorporate my own listening exercises, piano games, and reading techniques that help speed up the skill of playing piano. Children learn quickly with me and the parents have been the best with recommending me to their family and/or neighbors and becoming piano students themselves! Thank you for that! Piano is fun, therapeutic, and academic.
Every year I have a music recital, where my students perform pieces that they have been working on. Most times, my students perform on their own, but we also have groups that perform together. This is a very special time for all of us. When
you become my student, you join a music community.

Some of my music history include:
A general music reading course in college
I also have 7 plus years in piano lessons, 2 years in violin, and 3 plus years in choir, voice, and sight reading. I also taught myself how to play guitar as a teenager.

For Health and Fitness:
I've been a personal trainer and I have a Master of Science in Nutrition and Physical Activity. There are key specifics with trying to body build or weight loss that involve both exercise and eating habits. With my experience in training, I know I can help anyone get to their max potential in their goals. I love teaching health and breaking down the science so my students understand how the body works.

Currently, I teach 7 courses throughout the semester as a PE college professor. I love my work and love sharing my passion for health to the next generation. I'm a very passionate person and love to motivate youth into finding and making their dreams a reality.

Hi, I am writing because I want you to know what happened to me when I took a meditation class with Jessica. I am hyper by nature and very seldom could I relax. Let me tell you, with Jessica, not only that I relax, but I meditated and fall sleep! I highly recommend Jessica and her meditation techniques.
