To whom much is given, much is expected this quote impeccably describes LadySonya, an extraordinary talent in the Music Industry with an aspiration to use her skills to chase her dreams while inspiring others as well. LadySonya currently instructs piano lessons to aspiring music producers/artists as well as major music producers & artists in the industry, LadySonya Music Studio, in Atlanta, Ga. Just after starting the company in March 2008, LadySonya has consulted with numerous celebrity producers/artist such as Fat Boi, Kyron Leslie, Justice League, and others who have worked on tracks from artists such as Usher, Travis Porter, Jody Breeze, Young Money, and more with the assistance of her networking skills and knowledge base structure of Music Theory. Nevertheless, it is her remarkable story of faith, dedication, and sacrifice that has g
enuinely defined the young professional, what lures many to her, and why she remotely continues to build her influential empire as a true business lady.
In 2007, LadySonya, a Georgia Peach native from Columbus, Georgia, and transfer student from Troy University to Georgia State University, began her life shift of miserably working 2-3 part-time jobs to prosper through college. In less than one year of living in Atlanta, LadySonya quit her part-time job as stock for Ross Department Store and decided to follow her dreams of being in the music industry. With no money saved, nothing but a Radio-Shack 76-key keyboard, and one year of college experience, she decided to start her own business of teaching piano lessons. She found a contracted job to teach at Tarang School of Music & Arts, Suwanee, Georgia, and began to make her infamous mark. LadySonya also found various online sites to assist with marketing her newly established company. Many supporters on social media such as face book & twitter began to take notice of LadySonya's swift entrepreneurial progression and in May of 2009 LadySonya held her 1st annual Spring Recital for LadySonya Music Studio Company. The event inspired 75+ guests. Once the company began to bloom more she began to hold recitals twice a year, one in May and the other in December, filling the venue with up to 150+ guest per show. In 2011, LadySonya decided to take her name to the next level by writing her life story testimony of how she went through 7 part-times jobs in one year span along with almost giving up everything to move back to Columbus. During the summer months of 2011 LadySonya organized her very own Network (iNetworkDoYou) to help aspiring entrepreneur/music industry by encouraging them to gain valuable information to help them along the way.
Often mistaken for a fashion model, LadySonya is a celebrity piano instructor, with a lively girl next door attitude. However anyone views her, this young lady is establishing her brand as a music mogul, exercising her inner power to become highly successful.
It is dedication, drive, and determination that lead the role-model LadySonya to reach out to her numerous supporters and fans by creating an Annual Vision Board Extravaganza (2012) to empower others to reach follow their dreams, annually host two music recitals for the students to grow out of being shy musicians, create Lady University Movement to mentor young & older ladies desiring to be leaders, and assemble frequently as a motivational speaker and panelist as a entrepreneur inspirational expert.
Shut Up and Drive is the mental note that pushed LadySonya to the next level to be more than a piano teacher, but a business lady with ongoing dreams of being the next Oprah, with a diva attitude as Beyonce, and musician skills of Alicia Keys. She works day in and day out to build her empire of being a role model- I am LadySonya.
With strong family & spiritual backbone, LadySonya believes her ultimate purpose in life is to indeed inspire others to stay focused. Her alter-ego LadySonya is known to give you that extra boost of confidence and internal drive to set goals and achieve them. However you view LadySonya, as a musician, artist, entrepreneur, model or even social networker, know that she is on top of her business/brand and she's working hard to touch lives like never before with making her dreams come to reality.

*** Lesson Details *** What students can expect from the lesson is "learning".
I am a very relaxed, fun, and motivated teacher. I teach everything from classical to gospel to country to pop music. One thing you will find out from my lessons are you are "learning" rather than "memorizing". Lessons are structured to the students needs. I put my all into the lesson to the last minute or maybe run a minute over but at the end I know I've done my job!
I like to make it fun, so I encourage students to bring in music they would like to learn even if I have to simplify it a bit!
I also try to teach different tricks to learn the theory.
LadySonya is amazing!! I havent played the piano in probably over 10 years, and only played the piano by memorizing music, not truly learning. However, after just my first lesson with LadySonya, I was learning music theory and actually practiced a few songs playing by ear! I've learned more in this one session than I've learned after years of taking lessons. I cant wait to see how far I can go with this!
I have personally built dozens of Wordpress websites from scratch. I have building websites since I was a kid (back in the days of AOL, if you remember that!), and I love it. I currently actively run a website in my spare time that generates $500/month in income as a fun little side hustle.
I can teach you how to do the things you need to do while leaving out all the tech babble if you just want to know how to use it, or I can teach you what everything is and, generally, how it works.
I’d love to empower you to create your own blog or website, whether it’s for personal or business!
I love teaching and using humor to make learning fun. I like a lot of different styles of music, with a special love for blues, jazz, rock, and video game music. I've been playing the guitar for almost 20 years, the piano for nearly 15 years, and I've been singing since high school. I taught myself to play guitar because I wanted to perform songs while singing, and because I started to feel silly playing air guitar in front of the mirror in my room while singing along to my favorite songs.
Now, I'm a full-time licensed music teacher, a manager and singer for a choir that records video game soundtracks, and an online teacher. I really enjoy using people's interests to teach them instead of relying on the same old repertoire for every student. If it's not fun, you won't want to keep learning after all! I look forward to learning abou
t you, your musical goals, and the kind of music that inspires you to play/sing!
For prospective Wordpress students: I have been creating websites since middle school and currently own and operate a profitable website (vgmacademy.com). I love building sites and teaching others how to build sites themselves. Whether your focus is personal in nature or you’re looking to create a website for your business, I can help.
Wordpress Expert since 2007. I have sites that rank in the top 10 results for keyword searches with more than 40 million results. Right Now. My best day in traffic was over 6000 unique visitors. My highest ranking site in Alexa was 31,000 traffic ranking as a 1 man business. My Best ROI was making $1300 for every $100 I spent in advertising. If you build a wordpress site believe me when I say.. both free and very inexpensive paid traffic is out there
I am an expert in SEO and online marketing and sales in general. Paid, Organic, Or Viral On Social Media.
I also have achieved "Super Affiliate" status (Which means I have made $10,000 a month (or more) in commission marketing other peoples products for them) and can prove this as well. I have been working full time from home since 2002.
Bottom Line! I can help anyone optimize their business to get more leads, sales and long time repeat customers to their website or phone.

I've been sewing since I was 13. I've sewn things over the years such as dresses, pajamas. I do a lot of tailoring things too. I just love to sew, and I love teaching people to sew too!
The way that I teach is to help the student develop their own style. I have students work on their own individual projects that they pick out while asking me questions that they might have while they are doing their project.
However, if they would like there is an option for me to develop lessons for the student on certain sewing techniques that the student could learn. Although, be aware that learning how to sew takes time and that all the techniques of sewing cannot be done all at once.
Then, there is the third option that the lesson could be a mix of the student doing what they want (choosing their own project) and learning some pre-designed
My first goal is to give my students all of the tools they need to feel confident from the very first lesson. I would like for all of my students within the first lesson to finish either of two basic projects (pajama pants or a draw string bag).
My lessons are not like videos you may find online. Meaning projects will take longer than you think they will. I will work with you to properly construct a quality finished project without too many frustrations and in a timely manner. I recommend buying lessons in 90 minute packages, since sewing always takes longer than expected.
THE BEGINNER SEWER
In these lessons we will go over the following, which can be adapted to how you want:
- Sewing safety and how to use a machine - Learn about the sewing tools you'll be using - How to read, cut out, layout, and follow a basic pattern instructions - How to pin and sew a seam, finish seams and sew hems - Learn to sew on an elastic band (to pajamas or for a tote). - Learn how to unpick your projects when a mistake is made. - Learn how to do a basic stitch and the gather stitch. - TAKE AWAY PROJECTS: - Pajamas - Sewing Tote - Basic Dress - Pillow case
THE INTERMEDIATE SEWER - Cement what you learned in the while a beginner. - Learn to hand sew hems etc. - Learn about different fabrics and when to use them. - Sew a basic zipper onto clothes or bags. - Learn about the different foots. - Learn to do other stitches -TAKE AWAY PROJECTS - Intermediate Dresses/ Clothes - Bags
Whether it is for a hobby, to decorate your house, to prepare for design school, or to make your own clothes, I can teach you from the very basic sewing skills, to more advance topics such as modifying your patterns to make clothes that fit.
りりさん Is a great teacher I'm very excited for my second lesson! She's very focused on what you want to learn specifically and also helps you understand the basics. Sends you what you've learned so you can review it whenever!

She had a PowerPoint ready on the technique I wanted to learn.
WordPress used to be specifically a domain name aimed at web hosting (and still is) however with an open developing community a standardized set of files have been openly been distributed for anyone to use!
With these files you gain a set of tools: WP Control Panel Database integration Theme and child theme design. Plugin and widget systems CRM (Content Management System) -Admins -Users -Products -Pages -Posts
And countless possible customizations and extensions. Today's Digital Market demands more developers capable of running and troubleshooting WordPress code.
With eight years experience at Valencia College and 2 years at University of Central Florida I have experienced a wide variety of students between the ages 7 to 60 years. This experience has enabled me to customize lessons in one to one sessions with each unique student and their unique needs.
My teaching methodologies include plenty of visual aids, simile's, and clear communication with a strong emphasis on Socratic questioning to stimulate critical thought in helping to understand and take control of the information to be learned.
Sessions include visual and auditory components to learning and for students who need kinetic interaction to fulfill their learning process assignments can be assigned or custom problems can be created to be solved with an overview process of what is understood and what needs to be better diagnosed.
Do-it-yourself WordPress is deceptively simple and incredible complex. To Many people it's like a 1,000 piece puzzle without the boxtop with the picture.
Creating a WordPress website begins with lining up your resources with a domain name and webhosting. That's before you even install WordPress. I teach you how to do that.
Next, you need to select a theme, add plugins, apply widgets and create menus. You'll want to understand concepts and learn the vocabulary. I teach all of that.
Finally you add content, tweak your design, engage SEO, and set up "best practices" maintenance. I guide you through doing that yourself, too.
If you've already started we can pick up where you left off, or we can start from scratch.
I have the patience if you have the passion!
An oft-repeated phrase is "Been There, Done That." It describes my nearly 30 years of experience with computers, computer programs, websites and on the Internet ~~~ this section is about how "my experience" can serve you.
I created my first website over 25 years ago. In the 1990's, I hosted websites and email from servers in my basement. (That means I'm good at trouble-shooting and putting out fires!)
Today, I am a teacher, guide, coach, mentor, web builder, a domain registrar, and a web hosting re-seller. My latest interest is creating and showing video.
From that first day, decades ago, I've been teaching. I've taught one-on-one, taught small groups of 5-20, and addressed a full auditorium. I was an adjunct instructor for MS Office products at a community college. When I complete chapter 3 of something then I'm prepared to shar
e what I've learned in chapter one!
We will work together online, and maintain follow-up contact by phone and email.
Or, if you're in the Tampa / Clearwater / St. Petersburg (Florida) area, our first session can be held the old-fashioned way: face-to-face! (I actually prefer that.) We'll meet at a study room at a library half-way between us.
I like to use analogies, and they work best with an over-40 audience. Many millenials today have never seen a dimmer switch on a car floor or carried a digital pager.
I am available for all things computer: at home, at work, on your local network and on the Internet.
_____ PS: At the end of the last century I was assembling computers by hand, but don't tell anyone. They will want to use my trouble-shooting skills to help fix their hardware, too.
Rick was great to work with. I had specific issues I needed help with and he was able to steer me to the proper techniques and answer all my queries.

This morning I have completed my lessons with Rick for Word Press. I’m ao excited to get started applying everything I learned with Rick. Can’t say enough about Rick and his teaching methods.

Highly recommend! Thank you Rick!!
February 6, 2019
Just finished my 3 rd class with Rick! He is outstanding! Thorough and patient as a saint! Highly reccomend Rick!
We will start by getting to know one another a bit so I can gain a clear idea of what you are hoping to gain from our sessions. Whether it be an intro to a software or taking developing a full start to finish project. After our first meeting I will use my 11 years of professional experience to develop a unique lesson plan for you and your goals.
Hi! My name is Etana, M.S. I am a detail oriented, self starting designer with 12 years of professional experience under my belt. From print to web, design is not simply what I do for a living, it is my passion.
I run a Tempe, Arizona based business called SocietyJazz = ‘Society’ as in the totality of people and ‘Jazz’ as in all that stuff. Society Jazz brings together my core concepts: People .Passions . Environments.
I bring this philosophy into my teaching method: I believe that each person is uniquely different so therefore their love/passion in life and how they bring it into the world is their own. I use this philosophy to create unique lessons based on you, how you learn and what you want to learn.
There isn't a creative challenge I won't take on with you no matter your experience level. My greatest joy is to share my pas

I'm a professional website designer, internet marketer, photographer, and visual artist. I have a wide range of skills, talents, and interests from coding CSS and HTML, to manipulating photos, and making fine art paintings. Despite the medium, above all else, I am visual artist and designer.
With over 15 years of experience using Adobe software to build websites, and edit photos, I now work closely with clients to brand their businesses and market their products and services online.
I'm currently enrolled at Mesa Community College in pursuit of my 2nd associates degree, specifically digital photography and applied sciences. I'm excited to share what I know and mentor students who are eager to learn how to use their computers and software.
