Jason has been working with my almost 12 year old for several months now. We started with the ukulele and then moved on to the guitar a few months later. Jason is always very open to our suggestions and feedback on our son's progress and makes any adjustments necessary to keep him engaged. Additionally, Jason is always on time and if we need to make scheduling changes he does his best to work with us to accommodate.

If you are thinking of trying the ukulele or guitar, then connect with Jason. I think that no matter your skill level he will be able to keep you engaged, excited and challenged.

Every one of us have had to run at some point of time – be it as a punishment for coming late to school, a way to reach a train that you can’t afford to miss or simply a part of competing in a sport. While most of us know it is healthy, not many people do it on a daily basis. Probably, if they knew about its various health benefits they’ll be more encouraged to include it in their lifestyles.
Here are some of the top reasons why running is healthy for you.
Great for your heart...Great for your lungs...Helps you lose weight...Slows down aging....Reduces depression...Aids digestion.... Good for your bones....Helps you sleep and Makes you happy

Kelvin did it again! He supported and prepared my son for his orchestra audition. Nicholas was accepted into the Metropolitan Youth Symphony Orchestra for the third year in a row. Kelvin has helped him to achieve this goal each time. Thanks Kelvin for being such a great instructor and truly investing in my son.

Kelvin was a nice guy but not very good at listening. You can tell he is probably good at SEO, but is more geared towards giving multiple lessons, because he will not answer any questions if its not in the order he is teaching. Being a teacher myself, you have to LISTEN to the person paying for the lesson. You should not tell a paying customer that you wont answer a question because you will get to that at a later time in a different lesson. Some people, like myself understand many aspects of SEO already, and just need to ask some questions to learn new things to try.

Kelvin did give me a couple very good tips I will implement.

You could be a very good teacher my friend, just listen more

Keith is awesome. Keith has a lot of knowledge in the field of finance and economics. He has provided me with both academic and professional advice. Keith maintains a positive attitude during tutoring sessions and really is a pleasure to work with. Studying with Keith makes me not dread studying like all of times. I would highly recommend Keith if you are studying economics, finance, or accounting.
