About Marsha
To a Musical 2018! Recital is coming! Practice, Practice, Practice! Congratulations to those who completed the 100 day challenge, WOW! I am currently full except for ONE slot Wed at 4:30, snatch it up quickly!

Goals: Since I am also a Life Coach, we really focus on how to accomplish our hopes and desires. We begin by weekly, then monthly and even a yearly goal.

Each week we also focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. Another is TECHNIQUE. Technique is the ability to have proper position, wrist-lifts and finger curve as well as Theoretic knowledge and application.

I started giving out lickable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet and come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!

It is a great week when students are nearly
all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.

Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

About Kaira
Hello! My name is Kaira!

I am an educator in the performing arts and reading. My love and extensive background in theatre, and music is utilized in teaching children: singing, acting and reading. I am contracted through Baltimore County Public Schools as a temporary teacher, which has granted me the opportunity to teach yearly as an Reading Specialist. As an Independent Contractor Teacher, BCPS has provided me with the opportunity to learn and teach a Leveled Literacy program that strategically helps children to increase their reading literacy. I have helped over 50 children in a 4-month period of time to move up one level in reading while using this program. Along with the dedication of the child, parent partnering, and my fun reading curriculums can help a child succeed in the area of reading. These experiences ignited me to open up
my own business to teach children who have a desire to become the Performing Artist of their dreams, and or a Confident Reader.

Experience:
*Over 15 years of experience teaching children.
*Over 15 years of experience as a Performer in the entertainment business.
*Over 5 years of experience as a Production Associate and Casting Director in the entertainment business.

Education:
*Theatre Arts, B.A, The University of Nevada Las Vegas
*Television, Radio and Film, M.A, S.I Newhouse School of Public Communication at Syracuse University
*Elementary Education (Reading and ESL), M.A, Grand Canyon University (One year of education)

Locations (Important Note):
* Meeting at the library is ONLY for "Reading Sessions." You will have a choice to have class at the libraries or via TakeLesson Classroom, whichever location is convenient for you. :)

You can expect to have fun during our sessions. So, be prepared to have a great time while learning! I look forward to helping you reach your goals as a Performing Artist or Confident Reader!

About Susan
Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.

Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.

Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.

Speaking – Every public spe
aker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.

Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.

I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.

I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.

I am from Colombia where I used to be both, an English and Spanish Teacher. I did it for over 15 years and thanks God I did a great job in all institutions I worked for. My accent is from Bogotá, Colombia, and I have a very learned spanish level. Many people say that in Colombia, specially in Bogotá, you will find one of the best places to learn this language as our accent is neutral. I have developed a skilled and easy technique to teach this beautiful language. On the other hand I am an artist. If you are interested in learning and getting a high and fluent spanish level, with someone who feels passion for teaching, I am the one you need.

About Mechelle
"Ok, so like Math really isn't that difficult...."...says the person who never struggled with it. I struggled with math all the way through college. It wasn't until I didn't HAVE to do it, that I found HOW to do it.

The challenge was finding a way that math applied in my life and realizing that my approach to math was based on my MINDSET and being taught only one way. I was fixed in the mindset that I was not a "math person" and that prevented me from growth. I also didn't know all of the mistakes and wrong answers were important in helping my brain to grow new pathways.

I started my path into education by volunteering at my local after-school programs as a tutor. I then worked as a Math and ELA intervention teacher before becoming a fully certified Instructional Teacher. My goal is to instill confidence and teach in a way in which m
y students comprehend and relate to the material and can apply it school and life as a whole.

Oh yeah, almost forgot this part. I graduated from Brooklyn College with degrees in Biology and Exercise Science.
