About Jacquie
As a young child, Jacquie began to show interest in both piano and voice. Coming from a musical family tree, her father began teaching her beginner piano as well as vocal harmony through original children compositions. She began her formal piano training at age 8 and continued to study for the next 5 years. At this time she also began writing music and recording her compositions in the family recording studio.

Around the age of 12, Jacquie began her training in classical voice. She is well versed in all styles from Opera to Pop and has the unique ability to train others to accomplish their musical goals. As a Coloratura Soprano she has starred in many productions and won prestigious vocal competitions throughout the USA and Europe. Jacquie is an accomplished Contemporary Songwriter and Recording Artist which has caught the eye of quit
e a few National Recording Companies. In the Summer of 2000 she toured throughout Tuscany, Italy as a featured soloist with SSMA with an Orchestral Ensemble. While in college she minored in Piano Performance and majored in Vocal Performance.

Jacquie began teaching at the age of 16 from her family's music store in beginner piano and voice where she learned the art of being an private instructor. Since then she has taught at other prestigious Music Schools and has trained students of all ages to the advanced level. She prides herself on the ability to be able to customize each lesson to accommodate both the student's wants and needs. She has trained many students who have gained successful entrance into LVPA Charter High School, Community Theaters and highly acclaimed competitions such as "American Idol." In 2005 she acquired a membership with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing).

Come have FUN with Jacquie, she would love to have the opportunity to guide you or your children through a musical journey!

As a private instructor Jacquie believes that lessons can be both FUN and rewarding. She holds her students accountable for practicing and preparing for the next week's lesson by setting goals and providing techniques in order to be successful. Throughout the lesson she will give praise for the students accomplishments as well as give constructive feedback for improvement. She prefers to teach from the Alfred's Piano Library for Piano, recommends Theory, Harmony & Solfege, as well as materials for the students choice of Musical and Vocal style. It is also recommended to bring a notebook, binder and personal MP3 device in order to prepare for the next week's lesson. Within the first 3-6 months a student will have learned the beginning techniques for either piano or voice and have quite a few songs added to their repertoire.

Jacquie's studio has a comfortable seating area for parents to observe the lesson if desired. She also has a full size digital studio piano, recording studio, stereo, and other musical necessities to accommodate each and every lesson professionally.

All styles from Opera to POP!
Experience with teaching young children, special needs (physically/intellectually disabled), and people who are tone deaf.

Excellent Teaching Skills

The best vocal coach ever! Miss Jackie makes the students feel as though there is nothing that they cannot do and helps them achieve it. She is very knowledgeable in every aspect of her field, goes above and beyond. She is very patient with the students and never lets them feel silly. I highly recommend her for vocal lessons.

The class was a blast. My wife and I gave each other a gift to take a cooking class from Dave Hammer. The lessons weren't too complicated and even an old guy like me was able to do it. A great date night for any couple. Highly recommended.

Chef Anna hosted a handful of dinner parties at my home in Boulder, Colorado. Everything was amazing, of course, especially the delectable confections she whipped up for our daughter's bridal shower. She and her catering partner Carrie came to teach us a French macaron class and it was amazing!

About Clay
Hello, my name is Chef Clay, i have been cooking for as long as i can remember, starting out with my grandmother feeding hard working men coming in from the wheat fields. I later went through a 4 year long culinary arts Program on the Oregon coast working with many gifted Chefs during that time. I came to get a taste of cooking from Chefs that had been around the world, and no culture was outside of our lessons. I have worked in kitchens as far North as Malibu Canada and as far south as Las Cruces New Mexico. In that time working as a restaurant and personal chef i came to enjoy imparting what i know to the others in my life. I love what a good meal can do to bring people together, and i hope that with what i have learned in the course of my life so far i can share that magic.

Hi everyone. My name is Odalys. I was born in Puerto Rico, raised in south NJ. My father was a cook in the army which is where I get my love for cooking. As for my passion for food I can not tell you.... I am obsessed. My whole childhood I wanted to be a cook. I watched all the cooking shows. Right after high school I attended Culinary school for a year and a half until I realized I did not want to work fifteen hours in a hot sweaty kitchen with a hairnet, no makeup on, and no finger nail polish. I did end up dropping out but I never stopped cooking. I show my love through feeding my family very delicious simple meals. I am a busy mom of two. Most days I get home at 5pm, go to the gym till 7, that gives me one hour to go grocery shopping and have dinner ready by 8pm. I want to share with you all, easy 30 min or less meals, super simple crock pot meals, 5 ingredient meals, and even using only what is in your pantry meals. Some of my favorites are shrimp and grits, buffalo chicken mac ...
