Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

Crocheting is all about enjoying what you create with your own two hands. So you will learn all the basics and beyond while creating actual items: from scarves to hats to crowns, stuffed animals, decor, whatever interests you!

My grandmother taught me how to do a basic stitch back in high school and I taught myself the rest! Fast forward years later and I have actually opened up my own crochet shop focusing on children's crocheted creations.

Great teacher! My 3 yo daughter loved her music lesson with Sarah.
Patricia G.
Sarah was energetic, positive, and kind with my daughter, age 11, who was really struggling to get a handle on a song for a play she has been trying to train for. This was her first voice lesson ever. My daughter was drawn in immediately by Sarah’s practical and happy approach and felt more capable and comfortable at the end of the session and is definitely looking forward to the next one. Hard to ask for more than that in a first lesson!

I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.

I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.

Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

Joshua has worked with my 1st grade brother for about 8 weeks and he has made impressive progress in both his reading and math skills. He has also helped discover my brothers learning condition, dyslexia, but it seems like Joshua has had no problem with that. My brother has enjoyed working with him and is demonstrating new learning, this delights me. Joshua has also developed a fun relationship with my other brothers too. I could not more strongly recommend Joshua to tutor any student."
