About Jean
In 2014, I found my passion for helping others as a Music Teacher. I was living in Boston at the time, and offered my services to the many students who reached out for help. Through my years of experience, I’ve gained the reputation to guarantee great results, and the skills to get my students to excel in a variety of subjects.

I teach students with a wide array of educational levels. If you need an experienced Music Teacher, feel free to call or email me so we can set up an initial evaluation session at your convenience.

Great job getting my daughter who is not afraid to sing in front of people to open her voice up even further. She just preformed as a lead in a play and displayed what she has learned very well

Jean's passion for singing inspires me to become the best singer I can be. She is professional and easy to talk to. She creates a comfortable atmosphere and only wants her students to be the best they can be. She has helped me work towards my goals and is nothing but supportive. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a voice teacher.

About Margaux
Margaux Vranken (born in Brussels, Belgium) is a pianist, a composer and a singer. With a mixed and complete musical training : classic training (piano, music theory) for more than 10 years, chorist at the Youth Choir of Royal Opera La Monnaie, piano jazz at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, Margaux is carrying out several ongoing projects.

She founds the quartet PINTO in 2012 and offers a bitter-sweet, delicate, bright and appealing jazz. The band wins the Audience Prize in the scope of the Brussels Jazz Marathon contest in 2014. PINTO finishes its monthly residency at the Sounds Jazz Club with a critical and public success at the Mithra Jazz festival in Liège in 2015.

Margaux also writes the music of the long-feature "Les Liberterres" (released in Brussels in August 2015). The movie is being regularly broadcasted in France, Canada,
Switzerland and Belgium. In 2016, she receives a grant from the Fondazione Siena Jazz to take part in the Siena Jazz International Summer Workshop with teachers such as David Binney, Stefano Battaglia, Jeff Ballard, Matt Penman, Ben Wendel, Aaron Parks and many more.

She recently graduated from a M.M. in Contemporary Performance at the Berklee Global Jazz Institute (Boston, USA) with Danilo Perez and an impressive array of faculty including John Patitucci, Adam Cruz, Dave Liebman, Joe Lovano, Terri Lyne Carrington, and George Garzone among others. The Global Jazz Institute is an intensive program which awards full-tuition grants to all participants who in turn must complete a Master’s degree in one year.

When Margaux teaches, she keeps in mind that every student has different needs and different ways of learning. She creates an environment of mutual respect and empathy in which students can find their own voice and develop their creativity. One of the most important things for her, as a teacher, is to share her passion, to communicate her enthusiasm, and to give students the motivation for learning.

About Tyh
Hi I'm Tyh :) Are you looking to improve the way you move? Then you're in the right place! I've been performing, teaching and studying dance in the greater Boston area for 15+ years. I specialize in hip hop and street jazz where you can explore freestyle movement in a supportive culture of community and fusion! Book a private with me to tap into your already amazing movement vessel in a fun new way!

I love to eat all kinds of foods but my favorite has to be ICE CREAM. Hehe. I also love to read books about psychology, history and sci-fi fiction! Eek. My favorite pass time is fitness when I'm not dancing (like they're not related pfft) so you can catch me in the gym lifting weights or training mixed martial arts with my fiancé!

About Rock
As a child and teen, I was always active in the performing arts in school. Taking major roles in many productions and performing numerous solo singing acts throughout my years prepared me for success. In my early twenties I was scouted by agents across the country for my talents in acting, singing, commercial modeling, and dancing. In addition to awards for my acting, I've written and recorded over 30 original songs for myself and other artists and have had 4 singles on iTunes. My fans stretch across 15 countries!

After performing in live major acting and singing showcases, music videos, and attracting the personal attention of America’s Got Talent producers, I found my passion in helping others improve their craft by scouting & coaching kids, teens and adults in TV Commercials, Scenes, Monologues, Improv and Cold Reading, and Singing Pe
rformance.

I'm proud to say many of my students have been in a variety of productions and have been signed by major modeling and acting agencies in NY and LA. Working closely with a wide range of agents in the industry has given me a behind-the-scenes look into what agents are looking for in new talent which I willingly shares with all of my students and clients.

About Erica
I'm a professional tribal belly dancer, specializing in ATS and Tribal Fusion. I've been dancing since 1999 and performed quite frequently in showcase events in Austin, Texas. After relocating to Massachusetts, I've decided to relaunch my business in my new location.

One of the things I love about teaching belly dance is watching my students learn and grow. It's a beautiful art form, and so many of my students have gone on to become wonderful dancers, one of which is performing regularly with the Central Texas Belly Dance Association.

In my dance practice I focus on technique and the safe execution of moves. Strong technique and solid foundation moves are the basis for any belly dance practice, whether you choose to continue in tribal style or move on to other styles of the dance.

Currently I'm offering classes in Framingham and Na
tick.

A little something about me, personally? I love American Tribal Style belly dance, or ATS. There's something about the way dancers move together in silence, communicating through cues and common vocabulary is just magical to me. It's given me the opportunity to dance with dancers I've just met because we share this common language.

I never thought of taking belly dancing before, but was asked to tag along with my sister. I'm happy I did because this is a really fun class!

Erica takes the time with her students to provide clear instruction and individual attention, if needed, to perform the dance moves.

Whether you're looking to become a belly dancer or just have a fun time while getting in a good workout, I would highly recommend this class.
