Piano
Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

My 15 yr old son has taken Algebra and now AP exam prep tutoring from Mary. Trey has some learning disabilities and Mary does so great with teaching him the math formulas and how they can be used in every day life so then he memorizes them alot better.

Nikki S. Los Angeles, CA

Hello! My mother taught me how to sew when I was nine years old and I have loved it ever since. I used to make my own clothes and wear them to school! This led me to study it in college. I graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design in 2012 and received a BFA. I can teach the basics starting with the tools and how to use a sewing machine, all the way to making your own patterns. I also have fashion sketching skills!

About Marie

I have worked in Animation for over 20 years, from traditional 2D animation to computer, initially in Canada, in Montreal, more precisely. In '97, I was hired by the Walt Disney Animation Studio to train their animators on the computer. I taught computer animation software, mainly Maya, and Photoshop to hundreds of talented artists here in Burbank. I was also creating and writing teaching materials, so I am well versed in Word, and Illustrator. I really enjoy teaching, but after years of teaching animation software, I craved teaching something more meaningful, that wouldn't just help people in their career, but in every aspect of their life. This is where Life Coaching got my attention. Through coaching, I can have a real positive impact in the world, one person at a time. My other ...
