About Marsha
The Recital was fabulous- thanks for all your work.

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 and 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.

About Joan
I have 18 years experience teaching high school Spanish and have lived and worked in Spain. I am a UC Berkeley graduate with a minor in Italian. My passion is the study of foreign languages. I have also studied French and Arabic and am able to understand the difficulties of language learning from both the student and teacher's perspective. I am adept at explaining concepts in a clear and concise manner and targeting the student's specific difficulties. Students have found my tutoring helpful in improving their performance on tests, increasing their ability to comprehend and respond in Spanish and/or developing conversational Spanish when traveling to a Spanish-speaking country. I can provide the student with useful classroom strategies and study skills to make language learning easy and fun at all levels.

About Allen
I started learning piano when I was five and played classical for six years. I like to play by ear and also took a year lesson in improvisation.

I graduated from San Jose State University with B.A. in Music Composition in 2002 and I've been composing ever since I was sixteen. I wrote a lot of Christian Music both in English and Chinese, Pop, Commercial, and Soundtrack.

I teach according to each student's need and goal. I like to do a consultation with the student and parents on our first lesson.

If you're interested in getting to know more about the piano lesson, feel free to message me!

God bless & keep learning~

Susan is a wonderful French teacher both for adults and kids. We have had her as an in-home teacher for both over the past few years during the school year. She is very patient with the kids and keeps it fun for them, and also is a great conversationalist with the adults. I can’t recommend her enough. She is also versatile enough to teach German as well.

About Andry
Hello, I’m a native Spanish speaker from Venezuela and I have teaching experience for more than 4 years with kids, teenager, and adults. I worked in my country in High School teaching Natural Sciences. Since I came to Davis, 2 years ago, I have been working as a babysitter, where also I taught Spanish to the kids. By own experience, I know the challenges and difficulties that people face when learning a different language. Considering not only language related things such as grammar, pronunciation or writing but important things like getting involved with the culture and be committed and perseverant. I’m very excited to start teaching and helping you in this new adventure in a comfortable and friendly environment.

Andry is a great instructor. Although I am a beginner, after only three lessons, she has taught me how to use verbs properly, and how to give and understand directions in Spanish. She makes sure your pronouncing the words with proper dialect. She makes learning a new language less challenging with her positive attitude and her encouragement. I am excited to continue to learn and grow with her.

My name is Alexandra, I am 22 years old and I am currently studying to hopefully become a full time interpreter for American Sign Language or Brazilian Portuguese. I, as most young people, dream of traveling the world some day. I have taught a number of people sign language and it has been very rewarding to see how one can start from learning the alphabet to being able to confidently carry on a full conversation entirely in sign language. I love being able to pass on such a beautiful language to people who truly want to practice and reach out to the Deaf Community.

I have taught hundreds of students over the years to play the oud. I am very patient and the University where I was teaching truly appreciated the quality of lessons I offered. I have studied the oud from some of the most well know Oud Players in the Middle East. call me at 9 1 6 - 7 6 5 - 9 7 9 8 . Or e mail at mohtady . ekmail at gmail.

My Teaching Philosophy

rly hard because its predominantly used in middle Eastern music and many people in the west are not familiar with it. I hope my students will learn to appreciate the uniqueness of this instrument and understand how special it is. call me at 9 1 6 - 7 6 5 - 9 7 9 8 . mohtady .
