About Kevin

I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b

ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

I waited after a few lessons to give feedback. Very pleased. Kevin is full of knowledge -both relevant to music and other random fun facts! He is patient and will move at whatever pace you prefer. I look forward to continuing to improve my skills under his direction.

About Atousa

Becoming the world youth champion at 12 and chess Grand Master at 20, would have never been possible without receiving the best chess lessons from my trainers and coaches. Everyone needs guidance in chess, I’m here to share my knowledge with you.

Despite being a professional chess player since I was 9, I’ve been teaching chess since 2006 and started my own chess school in 2008.

Private Lesson is an excellent way to learn, implement and achieve desired results for ambitious players or children who want to start chess methodically. Also, it helps any chess player to improve his/her proficiency. My students range are from beginner to master level.

About Dominique

I am a professional game developer with 5+ years of experience in open source software: Unity3D, Construct 2, and Game Maker. I have graduated from Houston Community College with an Associate's in Applied Science, specially Video Game Art.

Students who are interested in learning how to create complete video game lessons can expect how to improve in programming with C# as well as learning how to create their own games from the ground up. I teach students how to create fun games based off games that have been released by popular developers. My lessons are original content that cant be seen anywhere else.

Currently, I am a game developer for a growing company in Houston. I bring my creativity and originality in what I do to create the best games in business. Even though I have been in the gaming business for about a year. I can still tea

ch a lot on how you can improve on your game developing skills and so much more.

Hello, and welcome to my page!

I am a trained and working actor who would love to pass along the skills I've acquired in my time training and auditioning. I believe art makes the world a better place; that it can take us to new heights physically, mentally, and emotionally. In a fast-paced city, it is imperative that we take time to explore different facets of our creativity and individuality, and that this exploration be fun! I take what I've learned from training in New York, London, and Chicago, to create a toolbox approach to acting and speaking. I am well-versed in many techniques, meaning we will find something that works for you! Let's discover!

Richard is an amazing chess instructor. When going over games, he quickly determines where your thought process went wrong and how you can adapt it for better performance. He has deep knowledge of the game and is able to communicate it at your level. I strongly recommend him for anyone looking to improve their chess.
