About Jennifer
I am a professional singer-songwriter and have been teaching lessons fulltime for the last 12 years. I teach students of all ages and levels of experience. My current range of students include: kids with learning/developmental disabilities, teenagers who have starred in school musicals, and performing adult singer-songwriters. Whatever your background or desire, I can help you to cultivate your unique musical potential, and to strengthen your creative voice.

As a professional vocalist and pianist, I have worked freelance, in a variety of settings, over the years--including solo, in wedding bands, small jazz and rock/pop groups and with big bands. I have been singing with the Mood Swings Big Band for 6+ years. During that time, we have performed at the White House, the Chamber of Commerce and in Kennebunkport, Maine (at the Bush e
state).

I also have an extensive professional and personal background in meditation (10 years), astrology (5 years) and healing (particularly Reiki, 4 years). I am very interested in the intersection between a healing/mindfulness-awareness approach and singing/playing piano.

Jennifer is an awesome piano teacher! She works great with children! My 6 year old is very engaged, interested and ready to learn! She leaves each week saying how she cannot wait for her next lesson and she practices a lot at home. I believe this comes from Jennifer's excellence in teaching! I would highly recommend her!

About Dovile
I began teaching while studying in Art Institute. My first students were 5 to 7 yr. old kids. It was very challenging, but also very rewarding. I was teaching them skills, they were teaching me patience. Later the age of my students grew, until I ended up teaching the same students I was in the same classes just 6 months ago. Again another challenge. I love challenges and even more I love helping others to overcome them.
My philosophy about teaching is that everybody can learn, it is only the way how we learn is different for different people. Another very important thing - I strive to be creative, respectful and approachable.

About Rosanne
I am a life-long crocheter, having learned from my grandmother and the Girl Scouts as a child. I am beginning my coursework for certification as a Crochet Master by the Crochet Guild of America this fall. I can work from written instructions as well as charts and often create my own patterns. I have used all types of yarn from the bulkiest roving wool to the finest thread. Currently my focus is on baby clothes, toys and blankets - new generation coming in to my family! One of my primary life pleasures is gifting my creations.
I have enjoyed teaching crochet informally throughout my life to friends and friends of friends and am always thrilled when the skill takes root in another. I currently belong to a few local crochet / knit circles and attend CGOA conferences as regularly as possible.
If you're up for learning or honing your cro
chet while sharing knowledge, laughs and a yummy snack, I'm your gal.

NOTE: I am right-handed. It is sometimes difficult for a left-handed person to learn from a right-handed crocheter.
