About Amanda
https://www.somdmusiclessons.com

Learn how to enjoy and take charge of the learning process! Read or play by ear and develop your ability to create meaningful music. Crochet Art Classes are also available.

*** Lesson Details ***
Please be aware that I am willing to travel a little farther than the 10 mile radius.

I have plenty of music, instruments and ideas to start you off with or to continue your musical education. I also offer an introductory demo lesson in case you would like to experiment with different instruments in order to decide which one you like best.
:)

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a great library of music to choose from. I also own nearly every instrument that I teach so that I may demonstrate and play along.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some music, a few incentives and supplies, as well
as simple repairs and maintenance for your instrument. I will also bring my own instruments for demonstration. The student will be required to secure their own instrument, music stand, book, reeds, valve oil, and the like.

Wow Sergey is really great at this! My daughter just turned 5 and is still practicing her headstands against the wall hours later. Sergey's advice to have her 'help' me practice MY stretching is a double win and making her more willing to do her pushups and splits too. We are really looking forward to the next class already. Thank you so much for all the advice and feeback post class too, Sergey!

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

About kaneshia
My name is Kaneshia Andrews and I started sewing in 2004, mainly sewing as a hobby. Over the years, I started sewing professionally for my online store fierlessfashion.com, friends and family. In addition to sewing, I also make jewelry. I am affiliated with a national sewing organization such as ASG of Plano. I’ve taken online classes with Stratford Career Institute, Burdastyle University, Crafty classes and in-studio with Petit Atelier.

It is widely known that sewing is fun, educational, and practical. Learning to sew is a wonderful hobby for all ages.
 Sewing is a wonderful medium of empowerment
 Sewing is great for devolving problem-solving skills, strong motor skills, attention to detail, and enhances focusing skills
 Sewing not only helps people to learn a hobby that is fun and artistic, it teaches math, critical thi
nking, and spatial awareness
 Confidence building

About KIM
I am a fashion samplemaker, and a devoted sewing teacher! My greatest joy is seeing my students master new skills, empower themselves through crafting their own style, and applying their learning throughout their lives. I maintain a blog on Tumblr where you can see some current and past fashion samplemaking work (as released by the designer themselves) as well as video tutorials that I've made.

While I am patient, my enthusiasm is palpable during each lesson. Each lesson is designed for maximum student engagement using a show-not-tell approach. Sewing is a hands-on enterprise! So, I do my best to empower each student with each lesson.

Kim is super knowledgeable and great at connecting tools, skills and goals. I have learned a lot more already in one lesson than I would have expected, all of it relevant to what I want to be able to sew for myself on my machine. Thank you, Kim! Looking forward to my next lesson :)

I found Kim after looking for someone to make me some custom athletic tank tops for the gym. After meeting her, I chose to learn how to sew instead, because she did a good job of making sewing make sense to me. To say I felt awkward my first time in a sewing store as a 6'6" bodybuilder the understatement of my life.

She took me from knowing nothing at all about sewing to being able to make my own work-out tops. Then she taught me how to make work shirts, and soon together we will start making my first pair of pants. (If you're as tall as I am, you know this is a very big deal.)

Friends and coworkers, for the first time, they're seeing me in clothes that fit my arms and shoulders properly and they ask where I got them. I feel really good about that, and I don't have rashes under my armpits from too-tight "XL" shirts.

If she can get my burly dopey butt to learn to sew, she can teach anyone.

She also has a stocked sewing studio. Most lessons I go there to learn, but I've also had her visit my place. I prefer to go there, if you need a button or fabric, she probably has it, and will let you buy muslin from her instead of taking a special trip to the Garment District to get it.

Sergey taught me about everything I had questions about and also offered suggestions in helping me to better determine the best way to find the career path that is right for me. Rather than hard and fast lessons, it was an opportunity to spend time, one on one, with a professional and learn from his experiences what works and what doesn't.
