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.”

Absolutely Amazing!!! She was very helpful and provided great information and knowledge. If she did not know the answer directly, she would provide resources and assistance that helped during the session to resolve the question and resources for future questions. I would definitely recommend her and also use her services again.

About Bill

I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring (doing it ever since I was in high school for my classmates) and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

About Bruno

I am a native Spanish speaker originally from Argentina, but I have lived abroad for the last 20 years. I have a Bachelor of Education from Melbourne University and a TEFL certificate from ITTT and I have been teaching for 10 years: 4 in China, 1 in Japan, 1 in Korea, 1 in Thailand, 1 in Taiwan and 2 in South America. 6 of them at private schools, 2 at public schools and 2 as a private tutor. I speak and teach only neutral Spanish without any accent or slang.

My primary teaching method is space repetition and I supplement it with a lot of role plays, improvisation activities, and a student-centered approach, making sure that the teacher talking time is reduced to 20% of the of the class time, so the student is the one who gets the chance to speak at least 80% of the time.

The technique I use, (spaced repetition) it’s not fun but it

works, I know because I have used it to teach myself Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. I have several courses, like the one for travelers, where we learn everything we need to know to get by in South America or Spain: How to introduce ourselves, the numbers, how to ask for prices and buying things. Asking for directions, checking into a hotel, ordering a meal at a restaurant, taking a bus or taxi, and much more. Feel free to Google my name: "Bruno Maiorana" for more info about me and my projects :)

About Blake

Today we have access to a mega-powerful tool that can bring our ideas from text to the big screen in a matter of weeks. To go from a photo to a billboard. A group chats to a leading production team. A voice memo to a hit song. Today, everyone can be heard in high definition, seen in 4k, and shared on any Online Platform or Big Screen, thanks to an incredible technological advance called the smartphone. You wanna be part of the success stories? Then let me show you all the right tools to use today and how to use them to their maximum potential. Whether you are an aspiring filmmaker (short, feature, documentary), Vlogger, content provider or even business owner. Let me show you how easy it is to turn your smartphone from a simple communication tool to an intergalactic spacecraft that can transport your dreams into reality on the go.

To be mobile. Film in Cinematic quality anywhere. Forget the office, you have a whole factory in your pocket.

I have been nominated over 20 times and have won 5 awards internationally, and I have been recognized by the ACS (Australian Cinematographer Society) for my skills in filmmaking. I have also been recognized by AFI and AACTA for being one of the leading filmmakers who has been using mobile technology to its full potential.

Blake is super informed and very motivated. He motivates you to work more and better. He shares everything he knows and supports you anyway he can...
He learned by him self so much and helps you do the same yourself!
