I have been taking flute lessons from Shannon for about six months now. I am an older beginning flute student. It has been great working with her. She places much importance on fundamentals, getting the embouchure right and developing a good tone. My progress is slow, but i feel that later i will not have to go back and unlearn things. She is also happy to let me include flute pieces i like in the lessons rather than doing only lesson books and the like.

Shannon tailors her teaching approach and lessons to the student. I am an older student who had limited music knowledge. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience that is fulfilling a deferred and delayed childhood experience!

Having been a runner since my pre-teens, I have competed in both short distance sprints & long distance races (up to a half marathon). In that time I have studied under amazing, award-winning coaches & have amassed a great deal of knowledge regarding the subject. In our discussions/training, we will cover breathing techniques, proper running technique, warming up & stretching adequately before performing, etc. In conjunction with hands-on training, we will discuss dietary plans, varying training regimens, proper hydration, & how to build a routine that will increase your overall physical & mental wellness.

Lesson was well organized. Alex was very knowledgeable. He explained things in a way that a 14 year old can easily understand. I'm really looking forward to my next lesson.

I've taken several lessons with Jason and highly recommend him! He is very patient, easy going, and goes at the student's pace. He's a great guitar player and he will work with you to achieve your goal. I leave each lesson learning a few new songs.

Jason is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. I don't have any musical background whatsoever, but he quickly got me started learning to play banjo and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this teacher.

We were new to the whole online, private lesson world and only tried as a test for our 10 yr-old son. He has now been working with Jason for several months now and shows no signs of stopping. Our son is progressing, has gained confidence and still seems to have fun. Jason is on time and if you cannot make a lesson he is flexible in rescheduling if given some notice. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much Jason packs into his lessons without overwhelming the student. We highly recommend him!

Kortnee is a fabulous teacher! She came into our home and taught my 9 and 11-year old daughters piano once a week. Both girls thrived and looked forward to their lessons. The progress they made in one year with Kortnee was impressive. We have moved out of state and the biggest regret is that we can't find another piano teacher like Kortnee. We miss her and her enthusiasm for teaching music. Best instructor ever!

Kortnee is amazing!!

I actually take both piano and flute from Kortnee. Her energy is contagious and she knows many styles of music. She is always ready to support what I want/need to do and can give me a tip within minutes that will help me forever. I can puzzle over a phrase or mood, and she will immediately "get it". She loves to see me have fun, and loves to help me over the rough spots.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

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

Our experience has been excellent. Kelvin's lessons are a challenging supplement to my son's school orchestra program. We also appreciate Kelvin's quick response to email and accommodating a few short notice notice schedule changes. My son enjoys his weekly Skype lesson and seems to be making great progress. We highly recommend Kelvin Lin.

I bought guitar lessons as a Christmas present for my Dad and he loved his lessons from Kelvin! He said Kelvin was a great teacher and catered the lesson perfectly for my Dad's level and what he wanted to get out of the lessons.

My 13 yo niece took video editing/production lessons from Kelvin. He kept her interested & engaged. He explained things well & in a way that she could clearly understand. She was eager to do the homework he gave her and to go to the next class. I recommend Kelvin highly. He's a fantastic teacher.

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.

Keith was a great help to our sales staff. It was apparent that his ultimate desire was to help us succeed in our sales training efforts when he went out of his way to stay in touch with our management staff through phone calls and email. We would recommend Keith because he is a stand-up guy and truly cares about those seeking his expertise. He will also tell you if he is not able to help in an area, his integrity is top of the line.

Keith is a fantastic Instructor. He has helped many of my students understand some very difficult concepts in Finance and I have sought refresher sessions with him and its a pleasure to work with him. Keith can breakdown some really difficult financial models and help you demonstrate efficiency with them. I highly recommend him, as I recommend him to all my students at the University.
