Stephen, is the first guitar instructor where I was able to successfully follow along with him and play an entire song from start to finish. I felt like a real guitarist! He's fun, supportive and has an upbeat positive attitude. He'll be patient with you and meet you where you're at musically.

Five stars!

Thanks John I will recommend you as a teacher

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

This is not a machine embroidery class. Get ready to move beyond the basic cross stitch (by hand). Let me coach you on specialty stitches such as satin, queen, eyelets, Rhodes, French knots and more. Let me repeat, this will not be a machine embroidery class, every stitch will be made by hand!

I've been cross stitching since 1983 and teaching it for over 10 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll learn how to organize your material for easier sewing, master basic stitches, and as time goes on you'll be able to tackle complicated stitches and designs. I specialize in counted cross stitch, but also have experience with redwork, drawnwork, Bargello, pulled thread, hardanger, and canvaswork. Typically, I use The Cross Stitcher's Bible by Jane Greenoff but can recommend other helpful resources. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have been taking quilting lessons from Dawn for many months now and I have found her to be a kind, patient and compassionate teacher. She is so helpful between lessons with questions and has videos to help. Being an older student with medical issues comes with challenges but she faces them with grace and compassion.

After speaking to Etana over the telephone and emailing her the text info, she had 1st drafts within 24 hours! And after making a few adjustments we had our finished graphic design, and the actual paper announcements (plus personalized envelopes) shipped to our door on the 7th day!

Thank you Society Jazz for a professional and timely order. Great job!!"

"A while back, I decided I wanted to start an investing blog. The problem was, I had no idea how to do it. I knew Word Press was one of the most popular programs for building web sites, but that was about it. I was able to secure my URL and get a hosting service, but I soon learned that Word Press was not going to be something I could efficiently learn on my own. After having a couple false starts with other instructors, I found Etana, and she is fantastic. She listened to what I wanted to do, and today I have a web site, which includes a blog, and I am able to post blog articles and pictures and do many other updates to the site. My regular weekly lessons with Etana are coming to a close, but she's only a click away if (more likely WHEN) I run into the next obstacle and need some help."
