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 10 years of experience working with Adobe Creative Suite software. I have an extensive archive of completed projects of my own along with many of my clients'. My expertise is in editing photos and graphics, shooting and rendering videos for online and DVD publication, and editing online content for various clients and personal projects. My most-used applications are Photoshop, Premiere, Encore, Dreamweaver, and Adobe Media Encoder.
I can teach how to carry a photo and audio/video project from start to finish, implementing effective practices to make the project stand out. If you have an existing project you need help with, we can go over it together.

Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, in my studio and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.
I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.
I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patien
t, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!
Sylvia is an excellent teacher. I was starting from scratch, and she was able to quickly teach me how to do numerous important tasks relative to what I was looking to accomplish. I recommend her without reservation.

Sylvia was excellent! I came to her class with very little knowledge of the subject but she was patient and taught me step by step on the topics I wanna learn. She was very knowledgeable of Adobe software, professional and very understanding of my schedule. I am confident now on using the program after our classes. I highly recommend her! Thanks Sylvia!

Sylvia was patient , knowledgeable and kind! I really appreciated her help in even trouble shooting how to approach my project.
I tailor my Adobe Photoshop lessons to meet the precise needs of my students. Make a flyer, edit a photo, create a business card or sign, make a photo album, create a promotional ad, touch up modeling images. Or just learn the basics of the program.
I am a graphic designer, photographer, and front-end web developer living in Brooklyn, NY.
I first discovered I love teaching others in High School. I took an independent study of Photography my senior year and basically spent the whole time aiding the other students with their projects.
In college, I noticed I was very ahead of most the other photography students in terms of understanding the different printing processes and techniques. I was always lending a hand with the projects when it was crunch time. A few kids even asked to reserve my time so that they could have me on stand-by during their shoot.
Now I have moved on to working for different design agencies and freelancing. I started doing web design last year and I love showing others how fun it can be to create a website once you get the hang of it!
I myself am an
avid learner which is probably why I love teaching!
Holly was awesome! She helped me get right into PS at the quick pace I wanted and she was great at answering all my questions. She also sent me lots of extra resources to help and even some homework so I could practice! I plan to do more lessons with her soon, highly recommended!!

Holly worked editing photos for my company to aid in advertising and Web publishing. I can only say that her work was impeccable. Every photo that she touched came back to us ready to go in formats that we could use directly or pass on to clients as part of an advertising portfolio. I only wish that she had stayed in Connecticut so her talent could further benefit my business.

Holly is patient supportive and knowledgeable with a good perspective on the subject matter and she is also prompt and offers constructive criticism that made my old ways seem more impactical than foolish.

What an awesome experience. I had a ton of questions and got answered them all to different topics like high,- and low key photography , landscape, shatter speed, exposure and many other topics. Eduardo is very friendly and explained everything in way so it was easy to understand for me. And we did a lot in practice to my questions. I would recommend him definitely.
You will learn how to use Adobe Photoshop fast easy and fun, especially if you are looking for just the basics.
I am a communications designer, I graduated with a bachelors from Pratt Institute 2019. I went to the HighSchool of Fashion Industries 2010 - 2014 with a design garment shown on WWD Magazine my senior year. I have always been interested in different art forms, like drawing, painting, sewing, music, movies and videos, designing logos and posters, clothing. I especially love the process of designing because of where you start and where you end. The future can be quite exciting. Learning shouldn’t be a chore, it should be fun and exciting in creative ways.
"Etana was great! I look forward to working with her more! She's very thorough and accommodating to what I wanted to work on. I loved that she gave me that
option to do what I wanted and learn what I needed to learn. It saves so much time."
"Holly worked editing photos for my company to aid in advertising and Web publishing. I can only say that her work was impeccable. Every photo that she to
uched came back to us ready to go in formats that we could use directly or pass on to clients as part of an advertising portfolio. I only wish that she had stayed in Connecticut so her talent could further benefit my business."
"Excellent instructions, great patience and encouragement that really enhance learning. Great experience!"
"Nicole professionally layed out, designed, and printed the obituary of my husband using Adobe Photoshop. Her helpful, yet sensitive suggestions regarding
picture arrangements on the pages of the obituary were appreciated. She was timely and easy to work with. I highly recommend her as an instructor."
"Holly helped me learn how to navigate Photoshop by giving clear instructions mixed with her infectious sense of humor. I was really struggling and I now f
eel confident in my abilities to use this program personally and professionally."
"During my time at Norco College, I had the pleasure of taking quite a few classes with Gil. I'm not know to be the best kind of student, I don't do well i
n classroom structures, but Gil's class was one of the few I was able to stay focused and do well in.
He has a great way of teaching that actually allows you to learn and have fun at the same time. He knows what he is doing and that shows, plus instead of just telling us to read this chapter or go to this page and follow the instructions, he will be more hands on and show us what to do and where to go and he did his best to help each student individually and help push their limits to make some amazing pieces of work.
I've learned a lot and still use a lot of the techniques from those classes, definitely the best teacher I ever had to date. So take it from me, if you get the chance to ever have Gil as a teacher, don't pass it up."
"Jonathan was awesome! He was very helpful and did a great job working through all of the questions that I had. I will definitely be signing up for more le
Plus it was great to learn how to add my cats in all photos! A new Photobombing level of greatness!!"
"I have had the pleasure of taking several classes from Gil; Illustrator, Advanced Photoshop, 3D Modeling to name a few. As an older student in classrooms
full of younger students, I can certainly recommend Gil's ability to teach any age group. He has the patience to walk students through techniques and procedures despite any lack of skill. At the same time, he is quick to challenge those students who skillfully grasp concepts and are ready to move on. The atmosphere he provides is warm and encouraging. There are so many techniques I am continue to use thanks to Gil's instruction!"
"This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can
't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!"
