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.

About Blake
Greetings! My name is Blake and I can't wait to meet you! I have been practicing design in the corporate, fashion and entertainment industries for over ten years. I can assist you with your goals from learning a new design software to providing guidance one of your current projects. Whatever you want to achieve, I can assist you by finding the right path. I do not have a set curriculum because every student varies from age to experience. My only rule is to take fun seriously!

Whenever I'm not at the computer, I'm acting, improvising or podcasting in Chicago.

About Melissa
I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all age groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.


What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

About Jacob
Hi there and thank you for considering me as your personal mentor in the world of digital artistry. A long time ago this world was just a hobby for me as well, and I hope to help you develop your skill set into something much more. I have over a decade of exposure to the rapidly-adapting professional photo and video world, with experience spanning from the smallest of freelance jobs all the way to mainstream feature film production and post. You can spend a lot of money in workshops or online training, but nothing comes close to the value of one-on-one personalized training. Because I enjoy teaching, I make an effort to keep rates affordable for the value of education given. If you're a photographer wanting to make your photos look like the pro photos you see online or a videographer looking to advance your work to the next level then wel
come aboard!

I look forward to meeting you.

I thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with Jacob. My husband gave them to me as a birthday present and it was tons of fun. Jacob was able to answer all of my nitty gritty questions, as well as general tips on improving my skills. The lessons were enjoyable and I learned tons. I've gone from shooting in complete auto mode, because I didn't know how to do anything different, to shooting in aperture priority mode with much better results. My Christmas portrait of my kids will be much better this year thanks to these lessons. If you're looking for an affordable way to improve this is a great option because you'll learn a lot in just a few one-on-one sessions. Jacob was also very flexible in working with me on the schedule for the lessons. Thanks Jacob!

About Latausha
I love, love, love to create! I am a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design where I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration. I love to explore color, lighting & textures. Currently, I own a party business where all the decorations are handmade. I try to find a way to be creative everyday.

Telling stories through art is very important to me. This is why I am a Children's Illustrator. Being able to draw something, add color and tell a story is an honor. Illustrating allows me to teach someone or cause a reaction solely based on what I create.

I learned to combine ink and watercolor dyes while in college. It was given as a one time assignment but I began to use the technique and make it my own by practicing on different subject matter.

I also specialize in digital illustrations through the use of Adobe Illustrator , dra
wing and pointillism. Pointillism is one of my favorite techniques. It can be very tedious but the finished product is impactful and rewarding.

Book a lesson with me and I assure you that you will take your personal creations to the next level! I want to help you achieve your personal goals.

About Emily
Hello there! I'm Emily Carrier, an artist, illustrator, and all around nerd. I am a freelance Illustrator who works primarily on children's books and character designs. I have studied illustration for four years at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). I have been drawing ever since I could hold a crayon. My love for art only grew with time. Now, my art style can be described as whimsical and quirky. I have worked with different clients and have even produced four children's books with more on the way!

I am here to help any beginner artist who wants to learn the fundamental basics of art, to the intermediate artist who may want to further their skills and experiment with new materials and techniques. Being a graduate of an art school, I have been emerged in an environment that pushed my own boundaries and creativity. I have lea
rned new techniques and ways to promote my art and spread my love around the world. I would love to mentor any student who wants to learn more about art, whether it is for their own personal projects or if they wish to pursue art as a career.

Art is one of the most important subjects that can be taught. It allows one to explore themselves and the world around them. You learn to harness your inner creativity which can help develop problem solving skills. You do not have to be Vincent Van Gogh, Picasso, or Leonardo Da Vinci to express yourself through art. The point of art is to find your own inner happiness.
