There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Abigail is a very helpful and patient teacher! She explains new concepts in a way that I can understand and she gives many helpful tips for practicing the pieces. She makes me want to practice and does a great job at helping me sound the best I can.

I love Abi’s class!! She is a great teacher and easy to work with. She is also very flexible to teach anything that you want to play. One of the best thing of her class is she always send you a class note after each class, which is very helpful for you to review and remind you what you’ve learned or tips from the class! I highly recommend her!
Layla
Abigail is a amazing teacher! Even though we were learning through online she made it fun and educational. She explained and gave examples that helped me understand and look at things in a different ways. She is very easy to talk to, kind, and funny person. Like I said I was learning with her online and l would absolutely want to work with in person.

Above all I want students to enjoy learning the piano. Most people start because they love a certain type of music or wish they could just sit down and enjoy playing. My goal is to make that happen. I teach all ages, beginners and intermediate levels. I think that lessons for children need a lot of variety so that they can learn from games, singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano. Of course, we all need singing, clapping, movement and playing the piano to learn but without the stickers at the end of your lessons!

About Nancy

Playing the piano and loving music has been at the center of my life. Aside from the happiness and fun it can bring, learning an instrument also teaches discipline and confidence which carry over into everything. I enjoy teaching both children and adults. As I teacher I am patient and encoura

What a wonderful piano teacher Nancy is! I am in my 50's and learning for the first time. Nancy made me comfortable, explains everything very well and I quickly learned how I needed to place my fingers and where my body should be sitting to play my best. By the time I was finished, I had an understanding of what and where the piano keys were and was capable of playing a simple song. I left with a great feeling of accomplishment. I am eager to continue and learn more!

Instead of searching for multiple professionals whom practice multiple skills, has one considered the thought of zoning in on one or two skills at a time with an artist/coach specializing in talents they seek?

From 2004-2020, I always considered myself a "student", because I was going about performing or sharing the abilities to create, but it felt more like a talent show audition personally, where I was repeatedly trying out... seeking approval and trying too hard to be noticed. I swore that I'd never be like that to begin with, but over time as I kept building more and more pieces, it became more of a struggle to become unique.

So I stepped away from only making albums, to currently seek out opportunities to work with students who get inspired by music, and desire to tell a story. My main focus for my own craft was being a singer/songwriter, but there's many forms of instruments that define music, and also blend with being a vocalist.

While I prepare to start a record label ...

My approach in teaching is firmly grounded in developing a healthy and self-driven practice culture in my students. As a practicing teacher, I strive tirelessly to lead by example. I ensure my students feel empowered after each lesson and hold them accountable to commit to their own daily grinds. For working with a new student, my typical process is to begin with the end in mind. According to the particular needs and expectations of the student, we discuss attainable and measurable goals for a given period of time. Especially during times of difficulty, I encourage my students to follow their curiosity and guard their motivation as we share the journey of music making together.

About Tommy

As a strong believer in the life-changing power of music, my teaching is driven by my purpose to serve and empower students of all backgrounds to realize their full potential and to leave a positive impact on the lives of others.

"I am compelled to write a raving review about Haley Shea. I am 55 years old and started working with her one-year ago to nail down punctuation and grammar in order to write a blog about nutrition and resistance exercise. Haley is patient and has a pleasant demeanor that strongly motivated me to want to learn the material. Currently, I look forward to each and every lesson.

Around December of last year, I discovered that my heart was not into blog writing. I sent Haley an email and explained my feelings and that I was actually passionate about screenwriting. She wrote back and I discovered this was right (or write) up her alley. Truth be told, as a nine year-old I used to write and direct 8 mm movies with my neighborhood friends as actors and dreamed one day of becoming a writer, producer and director. But like all other dreams this one was derailed.

Haley had me write a couple scene samples. She sent them back to me and was quite pleased with my neophyte attempt. I told her about a sci-fi television project that I wast interested in and after many months of her encouragement and my persistence I finished the first draft.

After some revisions, I watched her perform a table read by Skype utilizing the skills of her improvisation students. I loved watching their reaction as they each read their part. It is very gratifying watching some one become the character you created. It was intended to be funny and campy. There were times the actors seemed to have trouble containing their laughter. Overall their reaction was positive.

At this juncture, Haley is helping me with query letters and obtaining input from other professionals in her inner circle. She is also seeking input from other writers.

The most important thing is I enjoy screenwriting no matter what happens. Haley has helped me love what I'm doing and it is not chore but sweet ride.

I'm greatful for her guidance,
Paul Skinner"

6 Mistakes You’re Making on Your Acting Resume

Professional actors often can’t help but feel a little powerless when it comes to the process of auditioning and booking jobs. Sure, from the outside people think that actors have some say in creative aspects, but your input and personal preferences are really quite insignificant in the process (well, not until you're on a Brangelina level at least). So while you're on your way to superstardom, it's smart to leverage the opportunities at hand. The first area you have control of as an actor is …
