In a world full of chaos the challenge is to find a practice that helps you calmly balance your physical & emotional being that you can instantly use anywhere. We will explore and personalize tools intended to help you calmly energize yourself using techniques utilized by singers, actors and public speakers to conquer stage fright & audition nerves.

Briefly, my method for teaching meditation practice is simple and straight forward with focus on a very specific breath exercise with the intent to pull all our physical and mental focus to a central point, helping to distract our 'less quiet' self into being a bit more quiet. The sessions are personalized to each individual's needs, meaning you can meditate from the couch, a comfy chair, or the floor in full lotus position. My environment is optimized for visual beauty and comfort in order to provide a welcoming and nurturing space to meditate. Primarily, we investigate removing restrictions to meditation, to help uncover a practice that

Arlys is great. She's obviously very experienced and a good instructor. I've never taken singing lessons before, so I don't know what to expect, but I felt relaxed and comfortable with her.

Hello. My lessons are for beginning and intermediate students looking to improve their skills for school band or full drum set. Students will need to have acoustic drums to allow for practice between sessions. We will work on your skill-set relative to your level of experience. Each lesson will build on the next. My goal is to help students grow with their comfort and confidence. If you are comfortable and confident, then you will have fun. It all works together.

I've had some great guitar teachers in my life and I've learned a lot from them about music and playing the guitar. I will use what my teachers taught me to help you or your child learn how to play the guitar. I teach beginning to advanced players (except for classical guitar which I teach beginning to intermediate levels), kids and adults, and will work with you in a fun and challenging environment to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment. I am a very calm and friendly teacher who will make our lessons fun while also encouraging you to make progress. I will strive to keep you motivated to improve and will document your progress with the use of technology like audio recordings and video so you can see and hear your progress as well as learn from your mistakes. I like to work from guitar method books so we can establish specific and measurable goals, but I do respect and accommodate different learning styles. And, of course, we will work progressively on any songs ...

I have played blues, hard rock, fingerpicking, folk, and jazz music on the guitar since 2006. I have played onstage in rock bands and jazz combos and received years of private instruction. I am a chronic improviser, a composer, a creative musician, and a music theory geek.

My enthusiasm for the guitar is related to its irreplaceable role in genres that are uniquely and beautifully American like blues, bluegrass, and rock 'n' roll.

I can teach you how to play the basics, how to solo, how to write a song, how to play jazz chords, how to play rock riffs, how to groove, how to fingerpick, or whatever you want to learn.

Check out my guitar lesson demo video on my profile to hear me play!

"So I met Daniel a long while back. Background is that I am a retired cop who wants to break out of his comfort zone. At the time, Daniel was much younger, but he still knew his chops. What I liked is how right after we learned something, he would then do the trick for random individuals at the coffee shop to show the style, and way it should be performed. Heck, I was even able to impress my wife with a couple of his tricks.
I recommend him."

As we have grown in dance, we have found Mr. Eugene and Ms. Ania to be extraordinary. My husband has some health issues (Stage 2 Alzheimer’s) and they designed a plan to help him achieve success. I had confidence issues and once again, they gave me the courage to perform. We have found the love of dance! Through their guidance, wisdom and knowledge of dance, we can honestly say...”We can dance”!"
