*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

Ms Shannon has been very accommodating with instruction, since I have some physical challenges. She finds new and creative ways to make things work for me.
I am so lucky to have found her. She's an imaging teacher.

About Darren
Darren R. Wong is a member of The Kinjaz from NBC's World of Dance and has been teaching, performing and choreographing in the Hip Hop community for 13 years.

He has also been a part of world-renowned Hip Hop organizations such as Culture Shock LA and Kaba Modern and spent 4 years on the faculty of the Claire Trevor School School of the Arts at the University of California, Irvine as an adjunct lecturer of Breakin'.

He has been sharing his experience and knowledge by teaching and training dancers of all skill levels, from college performing arts programs, dance studios and online students from around the world, how to break with the knowledge that he has been fortunate enough to gain.

Darren's goal is to share what dance has given him in his life by providing in person or online dance courses for up and coming dancers who may b
e intimidated or self-conscious to start dancing or do not have access to experienced teachers or a dance studio with classes that interest them around them.

His courses allow both new and experienced dancers from all over the world to have access to an experienced teacher who understands the ins and outs of how to break down movements to its simplest form, so a student can confidently learn a movement with correct technique, execute them to music and piece them together to create their own combinations whenever and wherever without having to step foot into a studio.

He aspires not only to help those in his local dance community, but also dance communities worldwide who may not have direct access to the techniques and knowledge that was shared with him.

My experience with Darren was nothting short of outstanding! He has a neverending wheelhouse of moves that he can teach you. More importantly, he can help any bboy or regular dancer with the most important aspect of dance: staying on beat 100% of the time while doing these moves! He was kind, patient, punctual, and very talented. Anyone who wants to learn dance the right way can accelerate their learning by working with Darren!

Darren was very patient and nonjudgmental. I think he is a very good instructor. I was a little unsure as to how well a dance lesson would go over the internet but he put those fears to rest. I give him five stars for his knowledge and because he made me feel comfortable.

About Ron
To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines.

American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Certified Master Instructor
World Dragon Kenpo Karate
Grandmaster 8th Degree Back Belt
Tai Chi for Health Institute
Certified Trainer in multiple TCHI programs
Training available which can lead to Instructor Certification.

Ron has been actively teaching a diverse population of tai chi players since 2006 and has been involved in the martial arts as a student and instructor for over 40 years.
Ron also guides a group of local instructors, most who attend his lessons at Midwest Tai Chi Self Defense n Burlington Wisconsin regularly.


There are ongoing classes at the Kenosha Moose Lodge (Yang 24, Yang 32 Sword, TCBP, TCK,TCO, TCR, TCA Part 2 and Seated, TCE) and a Saturday morning TCA class at the Kenosha Senior Cente. Ron's ongoing relationship with the University of Wisconsin Parkside Kenosha is where he's involved in community outreach through the Mini Course program.

Master instructor Ron Pfeiffer has also been teaching Taiji Zen and the 13 Essential Forms for several years now and believes in the Beauty and Depth of this particularly powerful Tai Chi Chuan set developed by Jet Li in China.

Ron's journey into Health Fitness began in 1978 with various martial arts. In 2014, he was honored to be recognized through the International Sungjado Association for his over 35 years with a Doctor of Philosophy in Martial Science Degree.

My 10 year Tai Chi journey found Ron after experiencing classes with several different Tai Chi instructors. The consistency of his classes is only one reason I am still studying with Ron. His commitment to furthering his knowledge and expertise is evident and he passes that along to his students. His classes are layered to benefit the novice as well as the more experienced student. Ron’s passion and attention to detail makes this the perfect place to begin or continue your Tai Chi journey.

I’ve been training with Master Ron for several months. As a 60 year old physician I’ve had many professors and mentors who have shaped my life. Ron has a spot right up there with the best of them. Great instructors are not just great communicators - it’s a given that they can explain what you need to know. What makes Ron different is he is a great listener - even better he listens with not just his ears but his eyes and his gut. He can tell when you are struggling even if you don’t realize it and gently guides you past it. He rejoices in your victories no matter how small and encourages you in your battles with certain moves. Although he is very gifted he is very humble. He is very Zen. He believes in living in the moment with what you are capable of now but always wants you to strive to improve. If you are looking for an instructor you can’t do better than Master Ron.

About Mathew
I have been coaching chess for 2-3 years. I have been passionately studying the game of chess for 13 years. I am currently a 1939 USCF player (Class A player). My highest rating was 1983. But I am committed to go to 2200+ USCF player (National Master player). I have won several chess tournaments as well.

I am currently coaching 7 students to go above and beyond their expectations. If you hire me as your coach, I will take you above and beyond your expectations in the game of chess. My coaching style is hands on, which means that I provide move by move feedback. My coaching philosophy is grounded in encouragement and meticulous game review. My one student that I have been coaching for 2 years went from never playing chess to a 1350 USCF chess rating.

I graduated from Kutztown University of PA in 2013 with a B.S. in Biology: Molecula
r/Micro/Cell with two Minors in Mathematics and Biochemistry. I have such a passion for math, science, and chess. And I try to live with that passion everyday and show that passion to people everyday.

About Bill
I am patient, sensitive and intuitive. I teach well beyond what the choreographed movements look like. I teach how they are done in a way that maximizes their health, strength and martial benefits. I teach what makes the movements Tai Chi, so that you can incorporate the internal principles into your daily life. I teach you how to approach your practice from a perspective of growth, development, improvement, and how to become more mindful, improve mind-body connection, function, neural plasticity, health and ability.

I teach Tai Chi, Meditation, Qigong, and Ba Gua Zhang. I am a certified teacher since the year 2000, and a practitioner of the internal martial, movement, and meditative arts since 1990.

I teach on-site; privately in your home or gym, or to your group at the office, hotel, conference, or school.

My students have ran
ged in age from 2 years old to 95 years old. Teaching sites have included: pre-K and early childhood learning schools, senior centers and senior homes, corporate offices, hotels, industry conferences; and boutique gyms, wellness centers and physical therapy offices.

I have also taught ongoing classes, weekend workshops and seminars, and week-long retreats in New York, London, and Frankfurt.

I have been awarded medals in a number of regional tournaments and have been featured in several martial arts magazines.

I am also a certified scuba diver, and an avid world traveler. Find out more at my website comprehensivetaichi.

About Annabel
I have been coaching for 6 years now. I have coached private lessons, club teams, high school teams, and middle school teams. I developed my passion and interest for coaching when I was in college playing volleyball where we held camps and helped out coaching. With such a wide variety of coaches in my developmental stages, I became a mixture of the many different styles and methods of all the coaches that taught me to be the person and athlete that I am today. I owe all my success to them and my passion lies in wanting to share my knowledge and love for my sport to others.

I have been playing volleyball and lacrosse for 13 years. I have played at all levels from middle school, high school varsity, internationally, collegiate division one, recreationally, and on all platforms such as indoor, doubles grass, and doubles beach.I am a lefty w
hich has provided many benefits as a volleyball and lacrosse player. I have played OH, RS, S, and L which sheds some light on my knowledge of vertical training since I am only 5'2". I was a dual athlete in college and loved every minute of it! Due to injury, my career fell short which is why I preach injury prevention and studied athletic training, and physical therapy to benefit all my athletes that I have coached.

Annabel took a lot of time and effort to correct bad habits formed by other coaches. She helped me from when I was in middle school all the way through to helping me get recruited in college. She came to my tournaments and played with me in grass leagues. She does everything in her power to make sure you gain the most out of each and every interaction with her. She has been an amazing role model for me on and off the court and I couldn't thank her enough for all that she has given me. She cares deeply for all of her clients and spends all hours of the day answering calls, texts, emails, and forming plans and strategies that work for each person. She has helped me through all aspects of time management, diet, nutrition, exercise, and even helped me pick out a dress for prom! She listened to me complain about my boyfriend, parents, and school and was like an older sister to me. I struggled obtaining the grades to go to my dream school and Annabel checked in with me everyday to make sure I was getting my work done and studying for tests and always asked if I needed any help. I was a completely lost cause when I came to Annabel and now I'm playing division 1 volleyball for my dream school. I couldn't pass, set, hit, serve, or focus on the court. I had zero court vision or volleyball IQ. I was goofy footed, wore the incorrect shoes, and didn't even think I would ever make it any further than middle school volleyball. My dreams were accomplished thanks to Annabel. I am forever grateful. Literally best instructor ever. Worth every penny and then some.
