About Richard

I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love. Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Profession

Richard is so patient and knowledgeable. I am very happy with our lessons. Because of my background with classical guitar he wondered if the fact that he doesn't read music and I am renewing my mind back into it would not be a good teaching set-up. Not at all. I now have an electric guitar and the five years spent playing classical, now fifteen years ago, did not give me a good foundation for understanding music theory unfortunately. I have a genre I had already picked out fingerstyle electric and now with some thinking my way through the basics I did have I still need to learn just basic strumming etc. I understand what he is referring to in music so we still speak in the same key. Also and lastly my daughter has a severe seizure/dementia disorder that is very unpredictable and our caregiver's mom just passed away so there will be times when I just can't do a week/day. He has been very understanding. I am smiling from my soul because music is my healing path for difficult stuff I couldn't pay any doctor/therapist to even call me back for. Thank you so much for your assistance. Sincerely Teresa

This is perhaps my favorite subject to teach. There are such a variety of things you can do with the most basic of stitches, which students can then build upon depending on their interests. My goal for my students to walk away with a confidence in creating their own designs, with techniques tailored to their specific aesthetic goals.

*No machine embroidery.

About Rhiannon

My name is Rhiannon and I am a third generation crafter. Originally I went to school for art history, all the while crafting. Eventually I had enough of studying other people's work and instead wanted to make my own and empower others to do the same. I consider myself to be the "Swiss Army Knif

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them. Her flexibility (both in what I want to learn and in scheduling) makes private classes a pleasant and worthwhile investment. Highly recommend!

He is very knowledgeable and his passion for the game can be seen through demonstration of various strategies he teaches. This was my daughter’s first experience with chess club. She learned so much and had her first check mate!"

"I enjoyed taking lessons with Mr.Siddharth. He was a really cool instructor I could talk to and easily forget about time. It's always good to be so engaged with what you are learning that you put all your focus into the subject, and he easily allowed that. I even went over time in my first lesson, we were both so engaged!

I highly recommend Mr.Siddharth as an instructor. I am a relatively advanced player, but I can see how his wisdom can transfer over to beginners and intermediates. I will consider even more lessons in the future. One small caveat was his small bouts of absent-mindedness (moving the wrong piece, forgetting what as the last move), but that never caused so much confusion I didn't know what was going on.

Overall, he doesn't disappoint. Book a lesson with him, and you'll learn something."
