About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

I had my first lesson with Kelvin and it was very good. Kelvin made me feel very comfortable and we focused on the various tones used in learning and speaking Mandarin. I look forward to my next class this coming weekend.

While I do not follow a rigid vegan lifestyle, I am an advocate for health and well-being. I strongly believe that anyone can benefit from learning how to incorporate more plant-based, wholesome foods into their diet. Jessica's versatility makes her the perfect candidate to help guide you in the preparation of what I call, "liberating" foods. I encourage anyone reading this to enrich their journey to health by allowing Jessica to share her gift with you.

It's great to learn about healthy eating from someone who is so passionate and knowledgeable as Jessica. It's hard out there for a black vegan, but Jessica gives you practical info and instructions you can put to work asap.

Emily's teaching exceeded all my expectations for the four lessons she gave me on healthy cooking. She arrived punctually, well-prepared, and brimming with cheerful, well-informed advice that allowed me to gain far more confidence with my efforts in the kitchen! I highly recommend her!

About Michael
Hello, my name is Michael Seward. I’m a young student who has spent a lot of my life learning and experimenting with food and music. Since a young age, I just couldn’t stop myself from pushing the envelope of what I could create in those arenas. I won’t claim to be the best at what I do but I have fun, and I am efficient in teaching you the way you want to learn. If you have a passion for creativity, I believe we will work great together.

About Olesia
I'm a professional chef and a pastry chef. Graduated with two diplomas (Chef de Cuisine and Chef Patissier) from Le Cordon Bleu Paris in 2014, I spent next three years working in Parisian and New York high-end restaurants and pastry shops, such as Thoumieux (2 Michelin stars, Paris), Vaucluse and Mah-ze-Dahr (New York). I also ran a custom cake business in New York for a year and can teach you how to make 3 tier wedding cake from A to Z.

I'm an adherent of seasonal and healthy cooking so I would love to teach you how to cook not only delicious and good-looking dishes but also ones that make your body feel good and not guilty. Even if this recipe you would love to cook so much is calling for unhealthy ingredients- I'll show you tips and tricks how to swap for wholesome ones.

Little more about my pastry background- I specialize in Fr
ench pastries and cake production. If you always wanted to learn, how to make this beautiful mirror glazed cake or chocolate tart you saw on IG- I will show you the easiest and fun way to achieve the same result.

If you have a recipe, you'd like me to teach you how to make- it's wonderful! If you don't, I would love to create one (or even the whole menu) for you based on your food preferences, that we can discuss in advance. And don't worry if you don't have special equipment- years of "chefing" in tiny New York kitchens taught me how to improvise, and I'd love to share this knowledge with you.
