Hello, my name is Cindle V. and I love teaching music and chess. I have been teaching for 15 years. I hold a bachelor's degree in music education and currently teach around 30 lessons a week to students ranging in ability from beginner to professional. My experience working with all types of learners allows me to easily tailor lessons to the student. Currently, I play in 2 active bands and produce my own music. I am a member of The National Music Educators Association, OPSICA, and am a nationally licensed teacher who incorporates music therapy into my lessons. I also work with local chess clubs. I teach my clients in my home music studio. I work with singers, guitarists/bassists, pianists, instrumentalists, strings, and chess students. Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Indie Rock, Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative, Pop, Punk, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical. Some of my chess skills are opening, mid game tactics, end game tactics, and speed chess.

Cindle makes learning the piano fun. She is energetic, very knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about music, and passes on her enthusiasm to me. She makes learning interesting by relating her past experiences and education. It's always a pleasure to receive a lesson in piano from her.
I have literally zero musical background/talent and randomly decided to take up the mandolin. I found Cindle and had my first lesson yesterday evening... Cindle is awesome!! She teaches in a way that is easy to understand and has a great sense of humor. I never felt overwhelmed or defeated. I can't wait to continue weekly lessons! 10/10 recommend! :)
Great teacher. My son already is practicing all that he learned. Looking forward for the next one!
