About Marsha
And... it is summer. There are lots of things and people we LOVE. I like to focus on those good feelings, and music that uplifts and enriches. We are really working on our OWN music compositions this month.

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 Julia
Hi! My name is Julia A. I have been tutoring students of all ages and skill levels at learning centers, colleges, libraries and schools since 2008.

My instruction extends nationwide, with students from all corners of the US, utilizing online tutoring services such as Skype.

My main field of study is in MATH (trig, algebra, geometry, precalculus), CHEMISTRY (high school and college), and PHYSICS (high school and college).

I completed my Bachelors in Physics and Mathematics Education at Hunter University and have gained experience with both in-person and online group instruction and curriculum development.

Some examples of the students I have tutored are: Elementary school students preparing for State competitions and exams; High school and College students in preparing for entrance exams, and in subjects such as algebra, geome
try, trig, precalc, chemistry and physics.

I do Regents and SAT/ACT prep for these subjects as well as the GRE (These are NYS based High School Preparatory Exams - do not hesitate to ask should you need assistance with the ones offered in your state/country).

In addition, I am thorough and meticulous, by paying special attention to how the student grasps information and retains it, and prepare individualized handwritten reviews, with supplemental material found online and in texts.

I assign homework to keep my students ahead of what is going on in class, and a visual and intuitive understanding of the concepts I present is important to me, so I use visual aids (diagrams and virtual art) to help my students integrate what they learn with me in real life situations.

My instruction includes those with a gap in going back to school/university. I start with an assessment based on what the student has trouble with or remembers last covering in school, and prepare material going from there.

As a result, my students all have improved grades without any need for cramming before tests, and I encourage a stress-free and easygoing learning environment.

My lessons are fun and enthusiastic - these subjects are beautiful and will help open your mind to new ways of thinking - whatever your field of study!

Julia creates her own curriculum which is better than anything my daughters receive in their schools.
I see marked improvements in their grades for this past year, and my eldest is actually skipping fourth grade as a result of lessons. I am astounded as to my girls' progress, and greatly appreciative of our tutor's expertise.
Her patient, methodical approach to teaching is why I see us remaining with her for all of our educational instruction. She has already taught arithmetic to my youngest (3rd grade), and algebra to my eldest (starting 5th this sept!), and is proceeding with more advanced math with no issue whatsoever. I cannot recommend her enough.

I'm in a fast paced trig course at my uni, and we've covered things I never did in high school. I did 5 lessons over skype with Julia, and know I've found a keeper. She sends stuff to practice on in advance and has me work with her like I would with my professor. She comes up with practice based on my weakest areas and never shortens time. I don't even have to ask for review material because she assigns hw to work on, and basically, I'm a master at graphing now.

Yoga and meditation have been in my life for ten years. After training and being certified with a Yoga Alliance school, I started teaching six years ago. I love teaching beginners and using therapeutic modifications to safely engage with injuries.

Yoga is a practice that can offer many gifts. The movements and other practices, like mindful breathing and guided meditation, bring stress-relieving benefits, no matter what practice level or time commitment.

If you would like testimonials, please be in touch. I look forward to helping you on your journey with Yoga.

About Kellie
There's no such thing as a perfect yoga practice or even a perfect yoga pose. For years, I was convinced, I could only become a yoga instructor if I was at the peak of my physical fitness, as flexible as elastic, a dedicated vegan, and had absolutely no vices. I looked upon my current instructors as if they could do no wrong; the epitome of health, wellness and wisdom. (Not long after this thought, I got to know my instructors on a personal level, realizing they are human too and there is no "perfect" yoga instructor as I thought in my mind. Some of the greatest instructors I have ever worked with started their journey as a way to overcome a personal battle, grief, a tragedy, addiction or as a last effort to change their current lifestyle.

Mr. Dali had it right all along, it is impossible to achieve perfecti
on. We are individuals, therefore, each one of us has a unique body meaning we're going to have our own unique yoga practice. I learned fairly quickly that there is no room for self judgement or criticism in the practice of yoga. It doesn't matter how flexible I am or what crazy arm balance, twisty thing I can do without breaking a sweat and smiling perfectly for the camera. Instead, I found out about the development of a practice to improve my weaknesses and create balance in not only the physical body but emotional, mental and spiritual body as well. When I had this epiphany, I felt I just had to share it with anyone who would listen. So I enrolled in a yoga teacher training program in the summer of 2007 in Chandler, AZ.

I started my yoga practice in 2003 in Scottsdale, Arizona. I signed up for a power yoga class with absolutely no yoga experience, but I thought "Hey, I grew up in gymnastics, I got this." (Ummm.....I couldn't of been more wrong). I struggled my way through, sweating profusely, never in the same pose or correct side as the rest of the class, and suddenly forgetting my right arm from my left pinky toe. I was determined! I kept coming back with the intention of mastering power yoga and being the best in the class.

It was years before I realized I cannot master yoga. You are a student of the practice with an endless amount of knowledge to gain. It isn't a class where you receive a grade, instead it becomes a lifestyle. For me, the transformation moved slowly and subtlety, then one day, almost instantaneous, I began to notice my personal views and beliefs had changed. I developed more patience, tolerance, I was calmer, my worries and fears didn't seem to be as terrifying, my mind was clearer and I wasn't constantly on auto-pilot. As soon as the fog was somewhat lifted, I felt clarity soon to realize what I thought I knew about yoga, was really nothing at all.

Power Yoga and Vinyasa has always been one of the greatest loves of my life as well as an amazing and CHALLENGING way to workout feeling completely refreshed. Although, it wasn't until I discovered the practice of Yin Yoga when I stumbled on to my absolute passion, yin yoga. Not familiar with Yin? This style of yoga is much more passive, however, in many ways yin can be just as difficult as an intense hot yoga flow class. over the past 10 years, yin has become more mainstream in the west. (many studios do a variation of yin calling it "deep Stretch") The true form of yin yoga poses are held anywhere from 3 to 5 minutes, sometimes even longer. The postures are all seated and designed to MODERATELY stretch the connective tissue in the body. (JOINTS, ligaments, tendons, FASCIA).

Yin Yoga did something for me that I never thought was possible. It no longer became just a physical workout, instead it transformed into a more emotional, mental and spiritual practice. I have suffered from post PAR-TUM depression with both of my two boys, struggled with ANXIETY attacks ever since I was a young girl (I remember having my first one at the age of 5) as well as have been DIAGNOSED with bio-polar disorder and INSOMNIA. I have been on every medication under the sun (you name it, I'm sure it's been prescribed to me) and sometimes they worked and others......made life a little more colorful at times. It wasn't until i ACCIDENTALLY wondered into a yin yoga class that ever even imagine there was anything else out there beyond WESTERN medicine could help me slow down my thoughts enough to where my brain didn't feel as if was an sr-71 blackbird taking off during the cold war. I'm not saying, "quit taking you're meds and just start doing yoga." That is definatly not the answer.

Yoga has enhanced my life in more ways than I ever thought COULD exist. It started as a competition with myself to become a part of my everyday life. I thought If i could ACHIEVE "perfection" it meant accomplishments, ACKNOWLEDGEMENT, self-worth, respect, SUCCESS, wealth, power, fame, money, popularity.....ect., ect., ect., Then the world would be right, my life would be fulfilled and I would happy. sure, some of those things might make you feel better on the inside, maybe APPRECIATE life a little more or not take things for granted, as they should. However, when its all said and done, yoga has THOUGHT me that the only pure happiness can come from within, not through perfection.....and i didn't learn that from bench pressing.

I have been working with Kellie for over 2 years and I am so happy I found her! I was an athlete growing up and played football and baseball from the age 5 to 18. I never liked to stretch and avoided it at all costs. Now that I am an adult I've begun to just realize how much my body needs it and thought I would give yoga a try. At first, I did not like Yin Yoga but after a couple of month's I was hooked. I feel amazing and my low back hardly ever hurts anymore. If you are nervous to try it, don't be, it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I am not new to yoga but it had been sometime since I had did some deep stretching. I was intimidated in going into a class but there is not ANY private yoga instructors in Springfield Missouri because I have checked. She is just a great instructor! I can't say enough about Kellie. If you are experienced or just out for your first time she is someone who I would recommend.
