My Son started with Sergio almost a year now. The music teacher in his school moved him to play with the fifth grade class, however he is a fourth grader. I received a great report about his music performance from school. Sergio is a wonderful music teacher, who is able to make the lesson full of energy and joy. I strongly recommend him for any student who wants to achieve great progress in Sax in no time.

I have twelve years of experience as an art teacher. I am experienced at general art courses, photography, painting, AP Art, and computer art. My personal area of concentration with my own work is acrylic painting, I work with abstract work most of the time but also do quite a lot of pet portraits. I have an art studio where I teach all ages from preschool through adult. I love learning more about students and teaching them the skills that they need in order to create the things that they are interested in!

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.
