About Lars
I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught seven- to 60-year-old students in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now, I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco for university studies, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week-long summer jazz camp called Jazz Camp West, where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music (Jazz Guitar) and Spanish, as well as
an MA in Music, from San Francisco State University. By now, I am confident in working with whatever musical material students offer! Thank you.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back teacher, but I definitely expect students to practice what I suggest they practice. I advise that students use method books or sheet music of some sort, and I will certainly make notes for them and create materials they can learn from. I always teach based on the goals of the student and what type of music they enjoy, but I also like to guide the student in a direction I think would benefit them. I usually introduce music to play right away, conforming of course to the skill level and interest of the student. I now a play seven-string guitar that differs from the standard six-string guitar in that it has one string lower than the low E of a six-string. It will be practical to aide students by accompanying with a bass range instrument.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar
My guitar roots are mainly Jazz, but I am always happy to employ a very wide range of styles. I work with both modal and tonal musical styles.

Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

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 Me:

I work extremely well with people of all ages and absolutely love to teach. My full time job is training employees how to use software and computers. On my luckier days, I get to share my love and passion for volleyball!

Overall, I’ve been playing for 16 years and coaching for over 8 years. I started playing in grade school onto competitively at the collegiate level. I am active in the volleyball community and now play recreationally in tournaments and leagues.

I have coaching experience with middle school, high school Junior Varsity, Varsity as well as club volleyball. I started coaching in 2011 and quickly learned that introducing this sport to a younger age group is as challenging as it is enjoyable. Working with kids truly sparks joy in my life!

Back to the serious stuff....I have my American Cross CPR, First-A
id, NFHS Concussion, NFHS Coaching certificates and I’ve attended a handful of Volleyball clinics here in WA and CA over the years. I became a member of Puget Sound USA Volleyball and recently volunteered as a volleyball coach for the USA Special Olympic Games 2018.

At the end of the day, I seek opportunities to transfer my knowledge to others and always hope to make a difference.

Lesson Details:

Before and after each activity I like taking the time to explain and answer questions because it's important for athletes to learn how to properly execute drills as well as understand the concepts behind what they are doing. A typical session will be customized to the athlete’s goals. I will provide detailed instructions, a quick demo, and then have the athlete briefly practice perfecting their form by themselves and get some repetitions in. Next, they will nail down some drills with me focusing on footwork and ball control. Last but not least, they will work with other players and perform in team environment. Before moving onto the next lesson, there will be opportunities to ask questions. Afterwards, athletes will be given extra resources such as videos, write-ups, at-home drills they can practice, and workouts/activities to try on their own time to try to target and strengthen muscles needed.

Online lessons are convenient and can be a fun and interactive way to learn from the comfort of your own home. Athletes are given the private and dedicated attention they need to improve through the use of training videos. The cost is of course lower as well - please message me for more details.

Coach K is completely dedicated to fostering the love of soccer! His expertise is witnessed through the growth of athletes' skills and performance. He instantly sees an athlete's strengths and areas in need of support. He is always positive in his feedback and is clear with explanations and expectations. He discussed with my daughter and I her short-term and long-term goals. He assessed her skills and developed an individual plan to support her in reaching her goals. He's flexible with days/times and is very reasonable with his rate. We look forward to every session!

About Emily
Hi! I'm a dance, circus, and fitness professional. I have spent my entire life in the dance world, training vigorously in several different ballet institutions. After graduating with a major in ballet from the Walnut Hill School of the Arts in Massachusetts, I received my BFA in dance from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music, where I began to find an interest in fitness and earned my Pilates teacher certification. I later earned my personal training certification from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and worked as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer. In addition to finding a passion for fitness, I was drawn to the circus world and began training contortion and aerial arts.

I currently work as a company dancer with Ballet Florida, a contemporary company, and perform as a contortionist
locally and internationally. I teach modern, ballet, pointe, and contemporary dance classes and train groups and individuals for flexibility and strength training.

For flexibility training, I focus on both static and active flexibility to effectively improve range of motion (not just sitting in a stretch for several minutes at a time). Contortion lessons also available for students who have reached a good foundation in flexibility and strength.

Well Josh is a "special" guy. He really enjoys helping people reach their fitness goals. I'm a new student and didnt know what to expect but after that first day, I thought wow this guy is really into what he is doing. What I like most is he is a seasoned trainer and knows how to target certain muscles in your body. He will definitely push you beyond your limits and that's the type of trainer you should want. These next few months are going to be interesting because this guy doesnt even do the same workout twice. He switches it up every session. If you are serious about learning martial arts or getting in shape hit this guy up.
