I have been teaching and coaching actors for over 20 years. My students work professionally on stage, TV and film. Within the first few lessons, you will understand how to create a character. Soon, you will have the skills to book a role. I specialize in method acting, but draw upon my experience at The Second City (improvisation) in Chicago and other training I have had. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels; I can't wait to meet you!

About Jeremy

In addition to working professionally an as actor for over 25 years, I graduated from the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts where I majored in drama. Are you working on a part for a play or film and need assistance? If you are new to act

I have never taken acting classes before, & Jeremy has made my first experience extremely helpful. He goes into detail with every exercise & is not afraid to let you know how to improve. I have taken his recommendations & advice to heart & am very hopeful to how my skills develop alongside his coaching.

About Kelly

I have been sewing for more than 20 years and take a practical approach to learning sewing. I like to have students start with a project that is going to be achievable.

Kelly did a great job showing me how to thread a sewing machine and load a bobbin, and get started on my first project. She has excellent cameras to show you close ups of her machine and to demonstrate what she is doing.

I have been playing guitar for 21 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time.

Piano is the general instruction of the instrument. I have taught lessons for over 23 years where I have been traveling to the homes.
The students learn not only the general concepts but they also learn Theory which is the understanding of what lies underneath the music itself.
I have an easy going personality with the students learning how to play the piano, but I also want the students to work to their full potential.
The students learn not only the basics of the piano itself, but they also play fun songs, such as popular songs that they know.

About Teresa

Baduanjin Qigong
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Taught as it was taught to me by my Chinese Master while visiting Hanfi Health and Fitness Center, Ningbo.
The Baduanjin qigong(八段錦) is one of the most common forms of Chinese qigong used as exercise. Variously translated as Eight Pieces of Brocade, Eight-Section Brocade, Eight Silken Movements or Eight Silk Weaving, the name of the form generally refers to how the eight individual movements of the form characterize and impart a silken quality (like that of a piece of brocade) to the body and its energy. The Baduanjin is primarily designated as a form of medical qigong, meant to improve health. This is in contrast to religious or martial forms of qigong. However, this categorization does not preclude the form's use by martial artists as a supplementary exercise, and this practice is frequent quite common.

About Ron

Peggy
Ron is an amazing instructor. He has passion for the art and this really shows. He is very knowledgeable and brings his passion and knowledge to every lesson. He is very patient and through in his explanations. I have taken Tai Chi in person in the past but have to admit, even on-line classes his explanations and feedback have been superb to advancing my minimal skill. Ron incorporates theory and background history into each lesson, making this a very well rounded class. I would highly recommend Ron, well worth it!
Lillian
Takes time to explain. Not only the lesson but also the why. Background info as well. I had a very nice and interesting first Tai Chi lesson. Definitely think Ron can help me very good to become a good Tai Chi student.
Chris
Ron is an extremely knowledgeable, helpful and patient instructor who teaches true Qigong Tai Chi from China. I have had the best experience learning from Ron. He can break down every movement so that I can easily understand it but also will continually tweak my Qigong to improve my technique, my body flow and my body transformation. I highly recommend Ron if you are hoping to learn the true ancient martial art of Qigong Tai Chi or any of the martial arts that Ron teaches.
