Karen is a wonderful teacher. Very experienced and patient with a beginner.
Erika H.
Karen is so friendly, sweet, and methodical in teaching style. It is wonderful to be introduced to dulcimer with her and - literally - learn how to fine tune my instrument with her tips and encouragement. She makes me even more excited to tune and play my instrument. I can easily get happily lost simply in the tuning process with my dulcimer as it brings me a lot of joy just to hear the notes come into tune and playing very small, minor amounts of things on my dulcimer as is... it is so nice to have a guide like Karen to help me better to understand and dance with my dulcimer, learn about music and how the dulcimer strings are arranged, and how to hold the hammers! I thought I was excited to learn before... I'm even more happy and excited now and have some clear, down to earth steps to begin to actually really play with my instrument!

Tim is wonderful. He's patient, but also pushes you to stretch. He lets you decide where you'd like to go and what you'd like to work on, but has excellent exercises, ideas, and guidance when you need some direction. He's an excellent, kind, and fun teacher.

Christine is a fantastic piano teacher! She made me feel comfortable and at ease with what was my first ever exposure to the piano. I didn't feel nervous or anxious. She gave me a good explanation of the basics and clearly communicated what I needed to know so I could perform the required actions. She gave me excellent feedback, correction, and encouragement. I'm very pleased to have her as my piano instructor!

My 6 year old couldn't stop talking about her first lesson. She was very nervous but the instructor put her at ease and provided constant encouragement.

This has been an amazing process with my God son. He has ADHD and while initially he had some difficulty being focused he is beginning to slow down and is grasping the ability to learn. Wilma is very patient and an excellent instructor. We really approach her.

Self expression through art is an amazing experience. It's personal on all levels.

The most fabulous thing about being an artist is that boundaries regarding creativity are non-existent. The artist is always in a state of learning. Art is a progressive practice that takes time to develop. The students main objective is to learn, by drawing what the individual wishes to draw (personal projects that sparks and continues the creativity within).

Materials are not included.
Materials needed are pencil, paper and a willingness to explore.

Drawing lessons will be assessed based on the individual's current abilities and their goals.
Ages 9+

Note:
For virtual sessions, the student will need to create a conducive workspace that will allow teacher/student viewing of art work in progress. The student will need a workspace with lots of light. Often, I will ask to see the students progress, so that I may be able critique and give advise on their work in progress.

For short-term sessions ...

"My daughter had her first lesson yesterday and it was great! Mya Mya was very patient with her and also let her work at her own speed while learning the machine. She’s 9 and she wanted to go slow, then fast, then slow again. I’m glad I chose to use a one-on-one instructor because I feel like my daughter retained a lot more information than she would have in a group class. At the end of a pretty long lesson my daughter didn’t want to leave and asked to stay longer! We will definitely be going back for more lessons."

Chess Openings & How To Start Your Game Strong

As a game, chess is traditionally divided into three phases: the opening, the middlegame, and the endgame. While all three are important, today I’m going to help you start out strong in the opening. When I first learned how to play chess, I played openings that really did not help me improve and left me with an awkward start to the game more often than not. Eventually, I adopted some of the openings that I will show you in this post and my rating skyrocketed. Opening Principles The first …
