About Peter
I am a student of various great drum teachers from many backgrounds. Experienced players enjoy jamming with me, but I have been told that I am especially gifted at helping beginners feel comfortable finding rhythms and sounds out of any instrument, including the human body. Rhythmic breathing is made simple and encouraged from the start. Tones and drum patterns can be explained verbally or written mathematically. Students remember the patterns forever, as well as gaining comfort in playing with other drummers or instruments. Odd time signatures or complicated songs can be tackled and easily learned. Use any drum or percussion instrument you have! Recordings are encouraged if you like!

Peter grew up in Chicago, raised to love soulful music. A graduate of Northwestern University's Performance Studies program with a focus on Theatre and
Media Arts, Public Speaking, and Ethnology. Designing percussion for stage and dance lead to studies and teaching of North and West African, Middle Eastern drum, Caribbean/South American and Asian drum and percussion rhythms. First hand experience has been gained by living in Morocco and South Korea for nearly a year each, studying and documenting folk music.

Alyssa is an upbeat, encouraging, and patient teacher. Her own singing voice is beautiful, and she sings very professionally in a wide range of genres. She is reliable, pleasant, sincere, and capable. She gives each student her full attention and tailors her lessons to each one's particular talent (as well as where they're in need of improvement). I recommend Alyssa very highly... She's delightful!

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 Maria
I am trained in Hip Hop, Jazz and Ballet, and have performed in clubs, theatres, and public places since 2012, under dance studios like On Stage in Hamburg and Flying Steps Academy in Berlin, Germany. My dance style can be wrapped up in these three keywords: Swag, Smooth and Sexy.

In 2016, I obtained a Hip Hop dance trainer license from Gina Workshops Dance Institute in Hamburg where I learned the history and various styles of Hip Hop dance, and how to conduct an effective dance class to help students understanding the technique and artistry of dance.

I was also actively participating in regional and national dance competitions. Together with the formation Holy Grail from Tybas Dance Center I won the Germany National Hip Hop championship organized by DTHO in 2016.

I moved to Boston in early 2018 and would love to share with othe
rs how dance as a creative expression is amazing in every way. Currently, I am offering heels dance lesson which includes walking practice and choreography.

Melanie is an absolutely incredible vocal teacher/coach. I noticed a change in my voice after just the first lesson. Her vast knowledge of the anatomy used to create vocal sounds combined with the techniques she teaches has definitely improved my voice. She taught me how to belt and showed me the difference between my belt and my mix, which was beyond helpful. She also taught me how to sing in my head voice in a healthier and more effective way. And on top of that, she has a mental library full of great song recommendations for my individual voice. Can't wait until our next lesson!

About Tayon
As a former student at a performing arts school with a dedication to social activist projects, government and acting may seem like a weird combination. They're not, I promise. I've learned so many lessons, but the most important being that the theater is the gateway to getting people to wake up and focus on issues around them. My resume includes six shows on stage, working with summits in Washington, D.C., and serving on panels that focus specifically on civic engagement.

WOW! This guy is the best. Tom really helped me to get out of my own way, be more creative in my choices, and book work. I started as a new adult actor with Tom and within 3 months started booking roles in film and theater. He has a way of making you feel good and confident with what you do. It's a little like "therapy" but so much more fun.
