About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I have also worked as a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means.
Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new techniques that are relevant to our

current day and age.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson plans vary from person to person. I always make it a point to get to know the student's existing musical knowledge, goals, and background before I create a personalized lesson plan. All important concepts are covered as they are needed so students can understand theoretical concepts based upon actual application and usage. In short, I teach in a way that students can "dig in" right away and play, create, improvise, sing and/or compose freely and naturally. I always encourage students or parents to contact me with their goals, previous musical training, etc., and discuss what they really want out of lessons so they can get the most out of taking me on as an instructor.

Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

Patty
I started with Patty's classes in 2001. I was 51 years old and getting pretty beat up by Menopause
and Endometriosis in particular. I was a Jogger for many years but needed to add a good class with
weights and high and low impact exercise to really get into good shape. My best friend recommended
Patty's Classes and rest as they say is History.

Everyone knows that Exercise is critical to good health and if you have any chronic conditions is it
especially important !! Patty's training sessions are the best I have ever gone to - in addition to the exercises, the knowledge
she has imparted to all of us has been just as rewarding. I schedule everything "around" my training.
because I never want to miss and the older I get the more critical it is for me !

It is not an exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination when I say that her training session have saved my life
because it is literally true. I had a serious illness a few years ago that took such a physical toll that there
is no way I could have survived it had I not been in the best physical shape of my life and that was at age 60 !
Oh and her Boot Camp class is the best ever - hands down.

When I began to train with Patty I was a vending machine addict. Patty helped me kick my habit! I would buy 4 pops a day @ $1.25. This added up to $100 a month. I would also buy other vending machine items, totaling up to an additional $40.00 a month.
My work junk food vending machine habit ran me $140.00 a month...which pays for over half of what I spend in training with Patty! When people tell me I must be rich to have a trainer, I tell them "I just stopped eating and drinking crap and it pays for my sessions"...people don't realize how much they spend on junk food....hope this helps someone else!

What makes the Skype workout so convenient is, that I can literally get up, go to the living room and start my workout. I do not have to leave my home and that makes it so much easier to continue on with exercise. It is the perfect amount of working out. After 40 sessions with Patty, I always still come out feeling great. This workout has made such a difference in my life style and my body!! Ryan S.

About Ron

To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines.

American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Certified Master Instructor
United States Tai Chi Community
World Dragon Kenpo Karate
Grandmaster 8th Degree Black Belt
Tai Chi for Health Institute
Certified Senior Trainer in multiple TCHI programs
Training available which can lead to Instructor Certification.

Ron has been actively teaching a diverse population of tai chi players since 2006 and has been involved in the martial arts as a student and instructor for over 40 years.
Ron also guides a group of local instructors, most who attend his lessons at Midwest Tai Chi Self Def

ense in Burlington Wisconsin regularly.

There are ongoing classes at the Kenosha Moose Lodge (Yang 24, Yang 32 Sword, TCBP, TCK,TCO, TCR, TCA Part 2 and Seated, TCE) and a Saturday morning TCA class at the Kenosha Senior Center. Ron's ongoing relationship with the University of Wisconsin Parkside Kenosha is where he's involved in community outreach through the Mini Course program.

Master Instructor Ron Pfeiffer has also been teaching Taiji Zen and the 13 Essential Forms for several years now and believes in the Beauty and Depth of this particularly powerful Tai Chi Chuan set developed by Jet Li in China.

Ron's journey into Health Fitness began in 1978 with various martial arts. In 2014, he was honored to be recognized through the International Sungjado Association for his over 35 years with a Doctor of Philosophy in Martial Science Degree.

All 30 to 60 minute lessons are designed for individual participants. Your goals are my guide.

Ron has incredible credentials and is an amazing teacher. I've been taking lessons on-line with him for over two years and recently attended a live workshop at his school. The training was outstanding. I highly recommend Ron.

I have been training with Ron for a little over a year now and want to leave an update to help guide others looking for a phenomenal instructor. Working with Ron has been pleasant, exciting, and encouraging. I take weekly lessons with him learning Chen 18 Forms while refining the Yang 24 Forms and Ron does a tremendous job blending new instruction with refinement. He intuitively knows how much time to spend on each based on how I'm dong and what form or posture we are working on. I think I mentioned it in my first review but Ron's constant reminder of the fact that my Tai Chi is right for where I am in my learning is refreshing and helpful. If you are interested in learning more about Tai Chi Ron is an excellent choice and I highly recommend him.

Sandeep R.
For benefit of others, I wanted to write a quick update review. I have been studying with Ron online for several months now and can say that it has been--and continues to be--a joy. I try many things and have many curiosities. Tai Chi was one of them, but under Ron's guidance, my curiosity has deepened substantially. His teaching style is warm, kind, guiding, and filled with depth and wisdom. This combination signifies to me a true master, and I highly recommend anyone interested in Tai Chi to seek his guidance.!

About Sifu Jack

I was accepted in an all Chinese School in Chinatown Chicago in 1973 when it was very difficult for non-chinese students to study. My Sifu was Grand Master Wai Lun Chois who fought for 8 days out of 13 days in full contact in South East Asia Singapore to become the Grand Bare Knuckle Champion. I have taught over 15,000 Students since 1975.

Take lessons anytime and anywhere. If you fly into Vegas I am available to pick you up from the airport and go start training at your hotel, at a school or local park... Have a great day.

Versatile in teaching all fighting forms.
Overall great guy.

There are (unfortunately) many Martial Arts instructors who know just enough about self defense to get their students killed. Sifu jack is a TRUE instructor with years of experience and he possesses an exceptional reputation. The best thing I could say is " I'd have him watch my back and/or protect my loved ones anytime".

You won't find a more experienced, insightful, inspirational, and personable instructor as Siful Jack! With his strength, flexibility, wisdom, enthusiasm, sensitivity and humor, he makes things EASY.

Julian
"When I spoke with Frank on the phone, he was apologetic that there will be construction going on during the private parkour lesson in the facility. I told
him I did not mind as long as his instruction was great. Well, the lesson with Frank proved to be outstanding. He had a positive energy, was very encouraging and patient, and he knew how to observe, break things down to manageable pieces, and build on student's success. My 13 year old son was also impressed with Frank and really liked the way he taught."
