Beatrice is a great teacher! She taught me how to thread a sewing machine and how to do a bobin. Next week I have a double lesson. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to sew.

Tired of paying for alterations? Interested in giving your wardrobe a DIY makeover? Whatever your needs, my classes cater to your goals.

I learned to sew in a high school Costume Design class when I was 15 and I haven't stopped since. In 2013, I received a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design after which I started a cottage business making women's clothing and accessories.

My skills are specific to pattern-making, machine sewing, hand sewing, basic alterations, and how to start a fashion business.

I believe that with a strong sewing foundation you will find endless capabilities.

My classes are offered to children to adults, all ages welcome! I look forward to hearing about your sewing goals!

As soon as you get to understand chess well, you'll begin to see it's beauty and depth. Each game is an adventure. I love chess, and that is my perspective of the old and romantic game of kings and queens. I also enjoy teaching it that way, as it makes the game fun to learn and play.

Chess can be confusing and difficult sometimes, but really all you need is someone who loves chess to help you love it, and see it for its beauty. We'll play a few games together, so I see where what level you're at, then take you from there. From a beginners level, up to advanced, showing you the

About Cosette

Hi, there! My name is Cosette and I can't wait to meet you! I've taught private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students learn, explore, and develop their skills. I went to Wild Hope Academy and have studied in the music field for over a decade. After beginning with piano and

Benjamin D.
Over a span of ten years of teaching music lessons, Cosette was one of my fastest-learning students. Cosette strives to do her very best in every piece she performs and this was evident. Cosette not only would come to lessons prepared; but also because she was always willing to try a new type of dynamic or articulation, or to think of a musical phrase in a new way that would make the passage stronger or more musical. This approach brought her to a high level of playing, quickly.

In addition to her assigned material, Cosette would often work on additional pieces for church, other functions, or just for enjoyment, and bring them to the lesson. I always like it when my students bring extra music like this to the lesson; it shows initiative and involvement with others around them. Cosette definitely enjoyed collaborating musically with her family and friends.

In my opinion, once study and learning has taken place, it is a musician’s duty to look beyond the mechanics and to serve others with their talent - which is something Cosette is already doing.
David W.
Cosette is very passionate about teaching piano and vocal lessons. She takes her time and gives great instructions on what I need to work on. She is truly devoted and loves what she does.

As her former piano teacher, Cosette was a gifted, eager student who practiced diligently. Cosette pushed herself every bit as hard as I pushed her, and she has a sensitivity to music's subtleties. Her personal character and love of music of music made her a delightful student.
