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.”

About Christian
Chef Christian Bonilla Culinary Bio
From a young age I had a passion for everything food. Everything. My Spanish ancestry passed on the love of food and cooking as well. Family gatherings have always revolved around the menu and cooking. As a Spanish Language major in college, I studied abroad and devoured the Spanish culture and cuisine. Traveling throughout US broadened my horizons to other cuisines as well.

Eventually, I turned my passion into my career path and attended culinary school at The Restaurant School of Miami, a classical French culinary school. I absorbed all the techniques to prepare me for a culinary career. While in school, one of my classmates mentioned the new field of "Personal Cheffing". From that point on, my goal was to eventually have my own Personal Chef business with a focus on healthy cuisines.

Aft
er apprenticing at various types of food establishments, including the five-star Zuma Restaurant and a healthy foods catering company in Puerto Rico,
I settled back in New York City and started my Personal Chef Business.

Focusing on special diets has been a natural progression for my business. I have spent much time taking classes and reading materials related to diet and health. When I have a new client with a health condition unfamiliar to me, I spend some time researching this condition, for my own education. I will use the diet information from my client's healthcare provider or nutritionist, and use my culinary knowledge to prepare healing foods that promote my client's wellness.

I have worked with clients who have had Multiple Food Allergies, Parkinson's Disease, Lung Cancer, Breast Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Gluten Free and Dairy Free diets, and Diabetes, to name a few. As I work with a client they start learning about healthy foods, and how to incorporate nutritious foods into everyday. My personal commitment to my business and clients is to continue to learn and study about the relationship of food, health and nutrition. I find these subjects fascinating. I whole heartily incorporate this commitment into the meals I prepare for my clients, to continue to help them maintain vibrant health.
