My son's review of her is, "She is the best teacher ever!"

Renee is very knowledgeable, but also has the God given gift of teaching. She truly pulls the best out of my son. His diligence and focus are growing, right along side of his piano skills. We could not recommend her more highly.

I cannot tell you how many individuals have come to me and told me, "I have this sewing machine but I don't know how to use it." This is your opportunity to learn how to perform basic tasks with that sewing machine that might be collecting dust.

Being able to sew means being able to save money and make something that is unlike anything you could buy in any store.

I will demonstrate how to use your machine, how to care for your machine, how to read a pattern, how to preserve those special patterns that you use most often and how to be creative and make something that is yours and yours alone.

Tina is the best voice coach. She is very professional but friendly at the same time. Somehow my daughter(8 years old) clicked with her and loved singing with her! Tina successfully prepared my daughter for the Talent Show quickly even though the date was imminent. My daughter is currently taking a break from singing until her school is over. I highly recommend Tina to anyone who has a child or teenager as she is very patient and fun to sing with!

Ms. Tina is the best singing teacher in the High Desert! My daughter loves coming to her lessons, and has vastly improved. She has had 3 other singing teachers prior, but they did not teach breathing and vocal techniques. Ms. Tina coaches and critiques without being overly critical. She challenges my daughter with different genres of music, which has helped her not only widen her interests in music, but also improved her vocal abilities tremendously.
So if you're looking to sing better just for fun or for a competition, Ms. Tina will help get you there!

Best Vocal Teacher Ever!!

Ms tina is an excellent vocal coach, her ability to cover the most important aspects of vocal instruction is very impressive. My experience with her has been extremely beneficial. I had been singing 5 plus years and after taking vocal lessons with Ms.Tina I realized I was singing the wrong way and damaging my vocal cords. After working with Ms tina for a little over 1 month I was able to identify correct breathing tecniques, pronunciation, as well as being able to stay on key. Ms tina is extremely professional, patient, reliable and very passionate about helping her student's reach their goals and aspirations in music.
Any direction that my signing career goes, I would love to keep her as a vocal coach!

Beginner Classes

1. No experience necessary.
2. I provide machines for the first few classes.
3. I provide all basic supplies needed for these classes.
Students learn about the sewing machine and various things it can do -- how to thread and operate it, how to sew seams and finishes, and, of course, everyone will construct and sew some fun basic items like pillow case, cushion cover with appliqué, apron, coasters etc.
My program is designed for children ages 8-16 and adults who have an interest in fashion design, sewing, and illustration.
My goal is to help kids take this “arts” seriously from an early age. I teach kids with the same discipline that I use in my adult classes. I want the children to have fun while learning skills they can take with them and use for a lifetime!

Intermediate Classes

This class is for students who have completed the Beginner Class or already have comparable sewing experience.
1. Students will have to bring their own machines.
2. ...

I purchased these classes for my wife. She love it and was very pleased.
We bought an additional package after the first. And would have continued if taxes hadn't raised there ugly head. Maybe after we've finished with the IRS we'll be back.

I've been sewing for 15+ years and have taken courses in Clothing Construction, but my skills aren't limited to clothes. We can start at the very beginning with basic stitches and seams or I can help you read and complete a pattern for a garment, accessory, or home decor item. I do have some fabric for beginners but if you have a pattern, please provide your fabric and the notions listed on the pattern. I can come to you or you can come to me (but I have 2 cats - in case you have allergies).

I am so happy with my decision to take private lessons with Annie! Having never sewn before, I feel that the hands-on instruction in my own home and on my own machine shrunk the learning curve and alleviated so much of the frustrations I would have experienced trying to learn from online videos or books. She is intelligent, experienced and has a very pleasant disposition. She taught me what wasn't written in the pattern directions, and was able to offer suggestions and other options for the various steps along the way. I went from never having sewn a stitch in my life to having wearable items in just a few weeks. I would highly recommend Annie!

Annie is a wonderful teacher. She is sweet and very organized. Annie taught my 14 year old to sew and we had fun during our lessons. I would highly recommend her to anyone learning to sew or brushing up on sewing skills.
