About Jillian
I have a Master's degree in Music Therapy, am a nationally board certified music therapist (MT-BC); performer and vocal instructor (Bachelor's in Classical Voice); certified yoga instructor and meditation guide (200+); certified and attuned Reiki master; professional writer and editor.

...I find joy in a lot of places! And often I find these areas of study inform and augment each other.

Music therapy has afforded me a great deal of experience working with children, teens, and adults with special needs including, autism spectrum disorder, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy, emotional disturbances and developmental delays as well as teens and adults with psychosocial issues, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, grief, ADHD, personality disorders, and more.

I incorporate my experience as a therapist into the educative se
tting.

As a voice teacher, I want to help my students settle comfortably into their own musicality by showing them the building blocks of a solid technique, drawing particularly from the things that helped me grow as a vocalist. I want my students to feel strong in their body, comfortable and relaxed in their breath, and confident in their performance.

I am a professional vocalist in NYC. I perform liturgical and classical music, as well as musical theater repertoire. I participate in professional operas, choral groups and other concert series, as well as professional theater work. Performing gives me a sense of bliss and completeness that is indescribable.

As a certified yoga instructor, I teach in many locations throughout NYC. I was trained at Yoga Haven in Scarsdale, New York with Betsy Kase, and earned a 200-hour certificate in Asana, Pranayama, and Meditation. I went on to complete advanced trainings and now specialize in restorative yoga, prenatal yoga, yin yoga and therapeutics. I offer private yoga instruction and meditation at my home studio, and on occasion in my clients’ homes. My studio comes fully equipped with all yoga props, aromatherapy, and music. Hands-on-assists and personalized sequencing to deepen your experience.

It is a joy to offer Reiki to curious, open clients in need of energy healing. Reiki is a noninvasive energy healing technique totally separate of any religious affiliation and available to anyone. It is a difficult to describe the relaxing, soothing, and deep-healing effects of Reiki to someone who has never experienced.

Please feel free to inquire about any of my services!

*Note: If you don't see a time slot that is suitable to your needs but would like to try a session with me, feel free to register for the Flex Plan, and we will work out week-to-week times!!**

**Note: If you are interested in music therapy, please email me with a bit about yourself (or your loved one) and your personal goals, as well as the qualities you hope to find in your therapist.

About Tamari (Tamara)
Hi, there! I'm Tamara and I can't wait to meet you!

On social media and for those who are more familiar, I'm Tamari. We all learn in different ways; some are more visual; others, auditory; some, kinesthetic--I combine a number of different modalities in my teaching, including direct feedback-teaching--once you learn a concept or skill, teach it, as soon as you possibly can, to someone else! -- this reinforces your own knowledge of the skill or concept!
I've been teaching private lessons for many years and have loved helping my students acquire new skills, master new pieces, and prepare for concerts and performances. Over the years, my younger students have earned Blue and Gold ratings at the Young Musicians' Festival in Fairfield U., some of them earning gold cups: This is a statewide event to encourage long-term commitment
to the art, discipline and joy of music making.
I attended Indiana University's distinguished Jacob School of Music where I earned a Masters in Piano Performance, and Composition in the '90's. I sang all types of vocal music as well as prepared singers with vocal coaching and voice development techniques 20+ years.
I'm fun loving, patient, and optimistic-- these traits carry through in my teaching style,
One Size does NOT fit all--I approach the lesson plans for each student tailored to your learning style.
Over the past 23 years, my life experiences have encompassed other disciplines and compelled me to learn and acquire many other skills: my liberal arts as well as fine arts education lent itself to helping me work administrative jobs and even expanded into sales and public speaking. I have coached after school and SAT preparation to High School and College age students, helped with the preparation of legal and analytical documents, creative writing and editing assignments; and even tutored computer, social media and Microsoft Office & iWork Suite of applications to older adults. Within the 10 most recent years, I served as Music Director in Catholic, Methodist, Presbyterian and Lutheran Churches, as it is my firm conviction that Music is a universal language which can help deepen the prayer experience while helping to bring comfort and joy.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals

I have known Tamari professionally for fifteen years.
She is an excellent music teacher for piano and voice. Her expertise is noticeable as she patiently meets her student at his/her level and guides that student to the next step.
The process is perfect for any student, even if developmentally challenged and for any age. I highly recommend Tamari.

I've been consistent weekly taking yoga lessons from Tamari at the Y in Canaan CT. I try not to miss it. She's a compassionate and caring yoga teacher and will trailer her classes to fit your needs. Her classes are good for newbies and seniors and those who want a simple class. No athletics. Hatha Yoga are basic yoga stretches that will make you feel good after participating . My aches and pains are gone after each session. To be continued....

Tamara is a very highly qualified, and extremely capable musician and instructor. While away on a leave from my position as music director at a local church, Tamara planned and provided the music for services, and led the congregation's music programs in my absence. While I was away, it was a great comfort to know that Tamara provided quality music for each service. In addition to demonstrating an extraordinary level of musicianship, Tamara is a dependable, and dedicated professional. I am pleased to provide my strongest recommendation!

Hello everyone! My name is Victoria and I am looking forward to having you join me in the ASL classroom! I have a degree in the field of Sign Language Interpreting, a job that I love with all my heart. I have worked with Deaf students from elementary to college levels and weekly enhance my skill with my constant contact with the Deaf community. I've had the joy of teaching ASL to students with multiple disabilities from the ages of 3-8 and taught group classes for all ages from the months of June - August in my community.

Teaching has allowed to me to experience a whole new love of Sign Language because I am able to help others not only learn fluent and correct ASL, but teach them about deaf culture! If you are a beginner interested in learning because its on your bucket list, let's get you started right with the true understanding o
f what American Sign Language is!

If you are an interpreting student or deaf ed student in need of some extra tutoring, or you're going back to school and would like to brush up on those skills, let's sharpen away!

If you are a business owner, employee, or otherwise that has contact with the Deaf community and would like to be able to provide services in a more effective way, your goal is my passion!

No matter what your ASL goals are, learning with me means you are going to reach them in the most productive, efficient, and personal way with a curriculum tailored to YOU.

ASL is a BEAUTIFUL language. Come learn with me, and no matter what your goals are for learning, we can accomplish them successfully together!

Hi everybody I'm Anna, i'm Italian and I live in California from 13 years. I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology of Marketing and I have been teaching Italian for the past years.

I teach Italian language to speak with confident and clarity. I'm specialized in teaching grammar and I push my students to speak Italian as much as possible during the lessons in a friendly atmosphere. This is a great way to improve or learn Italian in a reasonable time frame.

About Abby
I'm a marketing communication student from Beijing, China.
I've been learning English for 15 years, and I came to the US during high school for a cultural exchange program. I think the immersive environment of a foreign language is crucial to the speed and effect of the learning progress. Even though it's not that easy to accomplish in another country, I still try to provide appropriate context to create an environment close to the native scenes. Personally I also study Korean and Spanish, which gives me a perspective on how to learn languages that from different language families, and to study at different ages.
I've been volunteering for the same cultural exchange organization for 8 years, during which time I came to contact with students from different continents and native languages.
I fully understand the obstacles of easing into M
andarin Chinese language system as beginners, getting comfortable with the grammar frame as intermediate learners, as well as the advanced written and spoken skills desired by advanced learners (as a Beijinger, I speak Standard Chinese aka Putonghua).

About Pieter
Hi there! I am a professional guitarist, ex-professional gamer and a language enthusiast! I have played in tons of local bands, competed in professional E-Sports tournaments and I have been a native English speaker my whole life (Teacher for almost 2 years).

I would like to start this off by saying that I love working with people. Meeting new people, talking to them and mostly, teaching them. I have a lot of patience with people of all ages. I love teaching and I would love the opportunity to be your teacher.

Improvement in any field of life always takes time, but with practice and dedication I can assure you that you will drastically improve weekly! I like interacting with my students according to their personal preferences. I believe that all individuals have the right to their own identity and I would like to be able to help my stu
dents to discover and develop their own identity.

I love all genres of music (especially rock/alternative), I enjoy games such as Counterstrike, Playerunknown's Battlegrounds and Call of Duty, and for my language students I would love to ask you where you want to start with your language course. I have a set of categories for starting off with languages!

I really look forward to getting into touch with you and to helping you reach your dreams!
