Overview

Now teaching and mentoring online!

My experience covers Music, Architecture (for buildings), and Metaphysics.

We can look into the individual subject you wish to learn, for a series of lessons. If you prefer, we may look into a range of topics for the lessons.

What do you want to learn about? If you like, you can take a look at my education and coursework to help you make a decision. Open up a separate tab or window on your browser, and past this link... http://www.esylvia.com/coursework/

Mentoring and lessons are for general information and are not a substitute for contract documents nor any other sort of professional advice. Metaphysical topics are usually for entertainment purposes, as are music and performance topics, and are not a substitute for professional advice. I do not diagnose, prescribe, or treat any medical condition.
