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.”

Monika is a superb instructor. We were attempting to make croissants and she made us all feel as though we were master bakers. She has a positive vibe and is incredibly helpful and informative.
I would take another class from her any time.

About Jyoti
Love Indian food, but need help in cooking....I am here to help!!

Hi, My name is Jyoti Janoria - wife and mother of two children. I am passionate about healthy and creative Indian cooking and have helped others with their desire to learn the art of cooking a wide variety of food from the Indian cuisine!

I was born and raised in India in a family where cooking has been a part of our heritage for generations. In addition to picking up the cooking style and well recognized recipes/cooking style from my mother, I have adapted and have been very creative with my own cooking style.

After pursuing my career in the Information Technology industry for over a decade, I decided to follow my passion to cook and teach others how to make healthy, flavorful and creative meals for themselves and their families. My cooking style is unique due to
the extensive cooking experience I have had from a very early age, and the ability to create and customize the dishes per your taste and liking!

I am an extremely outgoing and fun-loving person. My classes are fun, interactive and intuitive. The feedback I have received from the people I have taught is highly encouraging and it’s a very gratifying feeling to pass on my learning and expertise.

I believe, anyone can cook, but not many can maintain the consistency in flavors. So come join this fun cooking joy ride with me where your options are endless !!!
