About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

We've had Dawn teach a variety of classes at the Simsbury Public Library (CT). Our most popular is the arm knitting class we open to Teens & Adults. Everyone gets to take home an infinity scarf and they all leave learning a new skill. Dawn works well with all ages, is patient, and really enthusiastic about teaching what she loves. We can't wait to have Dawn back to teach more classes this Fall!

Dawn is an amazing sewing instructor. She taught my 8 year old daughter to sew her first quilt, which later won first prize at the Terryville Fair. Dawn is punctual, energetic, and patient. My daughter enjoyed every lesson and learned the fundamentals of sewing, cutting, and following patterns. Lessons were effective and fun.

About Faiza
I'm a tailor and instructor. I started tailoring and people liked the details in my work. They showed their interest in sewing and I love to teach. I composed courses and help them understand each thing the way I wanted myself to be taught in detail. I have taught absolute beginners in just 3 weeks to sew their own tunics.

I graduated with a Bachelors in Business Administration and worked as an Accountant prior to teaching. Later I realized sewing is as important to me as breathing. I help students build confidence in sewing. I love the feeling when students are able to complete their courses and practically apply their knowledge.

"She's an amazing teacher. Loved the classes I took with her. She goes out of her way to make sure you get it. We stitched a tunic and trouser and both turned out so good.
Thanks for all your efforts and the small little personal touches you give to make us feel welcome!
Highly recommend her sewing classes 👍🏼👍🏼"

About Laura
I am a bit of an unconventional teacher. I like to hear my lessons around my students best ability to learn. My courses are set at a very comfortable pace and are laid back. I have been contracted to sew costuming that had to pass as historically correct.

Hand sewing a costume for an actress playing Queen Elizabeth the first. Everything had to be hand-sewn from the undergarments to the seven layers that consists of a historically correct tutor costume. I have some pieces for reenactors. I have also been contracted to so for an exhibit in several museums. I have customers all over the world. I also have experience in creating patterns from photos alone or someone's drawing.

I like to share my love of history and sewing. I do this through teaching and sharing. I love to see the excitement in someone's eyes when they put they're very firs
t project on. The fit and comfort of a homemade, handmade item surpasses anything that you can get, unless you go to a Couture shop. Couture sewing is a dying art. One I hope to at least bring more interest in. You're wanting to learn how to make anything from Kilts to Jerkins or corsets to a smart 40s dress suit and everything in between this is the place.

With pattern-making we will learn how to take patterns off of clothes that we love. You know that shirt that fits beautifully but they don't make it anymore. I will also go over some ways to find inexpensive material that still gives you the wow factor.
