I have been teaching small group classes of children between the ages of 5 and 13 since 2010. My favorite memory from my earliest class was when my 10 year old student went home and adjusted her mother's sewing machine to sew properly! I have taught classes from very basic sewing machine skills to machine quilting.

About Angela

I learned to crochet in grade school, taught myself to knit and learned to sew from my mother at a very early age. Teaching grade school children/students is my passion. I believe learning to knit and sew can help students learn a level of patience and persistence that will help them in their schoo

Angela is a very knowledgeable instructor! She helped me come up with different ways to construct garments for my unique business and sped up my surging and sewing skills in just 5 lessons. She’s very patient and excellent at explaining things in depth and easy for a beginner to understand. I would definitely recommend Angela!

I'm an experience seamstress focused on plus sizes with about 15 years of sewing projects under my belt. I'm a home sewist who does it for fun, but I've started moving into making clothes for friends and family due to high demand. If you want to learn to make a pillow, pajama pants, or a quick skirt, I can help you do it! I specialize in plus size sewing, so if you're looking to make something that works on your body that's a bit more complicated, I can take you through the adjustments you need. Sewing has changed how I see my body-- I hope it helps you too!

About Kathleen

I started sewing when I was in elementary school! My Mom used to make Halloween costumes with me. When I got really into anime I wanted to attend comic book conventions in cosplay (costume) and my Mom decided that this was a bridge too far, so it was time for me to learn to sew myself. Now I have

GAMING MUSIC FOR PIANO:

This is a special course Ms. Melissa is offering! She is teaching video game music on piano to all those gamers out there!

Ms. Melissa likes to learn video game music in her spare time, from games such as Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Skyrim, and so on.

She understands that a lot of piano students want to learn this type of music, so for a limited time she is offering to skip the introductory classes and get straight to work!

NOTE: This course does not teach the basics of piano (note reading, technique or notation) Ms. Melissa strongly suggests this course for students who already have at least some knowledge of these fundamentals.

NOTE: Can be taken IN CONJUNCTION with regular piano lessons, or on its own!

About Melissa

Ms. Melissa is a classically trained singer and pianist with a love for all kinds of music. Since 2013, she has taught students to read music, understand music, and prepare for various occasions such as NYSSMA, auditions (theatre, college, etc.) and recitals. She is currently teaching out of her

We love our online lessons with Melissa! We just prop up the phone or iPad on a chair and Melissa can guide my daughter as if she was sitting right next to her!! She keeps her engaged and focused with her encouraging approach and current song choices. Voice lessons are also going great with Melissa demonstrating or singing along as needed. I spoke with A LOT of instructors and music schools and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Melissa to anyone!

"I am thankful I found this astrology teacher. She is amazing at showing a beginner student how planets, signs, and houses may interact and influence one another without using an overwhelming amount of words that you can't understand at beginner level. Her way of teaching is almost like a mini-reading where you can gain insight into both how astrology works and how your chart is influencing who you are/why you feel/do things. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn astrology!"

"My daughter had her first lesson yesterday and it was great! Mya Mya was very patient with her and also let her work at her own speed while learning the machine. She’s 9 and she wanted to go slow, then fast, then slow again. I’m glad I chose to use a one-on-one instructor because I feel like my daughter retained a lot more information than she would have in a group class. At the end of a pretty long lesson my daughter didn’t want to leave and asked to stay longer! We will definitely be going back for more lessons."
