Great teacher

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Shannon for 2-3 years. She really enjoys her time with Shannon and has learned so much! Shannon does a wonderful job of creating chamber music groups with recitals, in which my daughter was able to take part - definitely nothing that would have been offered in her school at this level! We are very lucky to have found Shannon!

About Kortnee

Hi There! Today is your day to start those piano lessons! Right? Please contact me for additional availability. I have more options than are shown here. Whether I am teaching a piano lesson, directing a play or training for a triathlon, you will find that I am always full of enthusiasm and positive life energy. I look forward to helping you meet your performing arts goals. There is nothing more beneficial to your well-being and contentment than participating in the arts! When I was a little girl, I begged my parents for piano lessons.... and then flute lessons... and then saxophone lessons, and then oboe lessons... and then voice lessons.... and the list goes on and on! They couldn't keep me away from music and theatre. I studied music and theatre in college as well ...

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!!

10+ years experience as a swimming teacher and coach - I have taught students ranging in age from 6 months to 70 years old. I have also worked with students ranging from beginners to National level swimmers.

Note: you must have a pool where I can teach the lesson(s); most of the facilities around have strict policies against outside private swim lessons due to liability

About Laura

I hold a BA from Westfield State where I majored in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Performance. I am an experienced teacher with a vast knowledge in Stage Acting, Acting for Film & TV, Improvisation, Shakespeare (acting and deciphering text), Directing, Playwriting, Sound Design, Script Analysis, Scenography, the Meisner Technique, Method Acting, Suzuki, Clowning, and much more. With the background and experience I have, classes are extremely educational and fun! Lessons will be structured around what YOU want to get out of the class. Need help getting into character for a performance? Work on public speaking? Need a better understanding of Shakespeare for an essay? Help learning lines? Want to learn of different acting techniques? Or maybe you're new to acting and are ...

I signed up my 8 year old daughter for acting lessons with Laura. At first it was just to have her get some extra help for a school play, but once the play ended I stuck with the lessons (my daughter loved it). Overall I have nothing bad to say - my kid loves her and acting!
At first I went through this site, but found it easier to just schedule them with Laura directly after a while. The website is too difficult when it comes to bookings, I rather deal with the instructor themselves. Plus, I saved some money by doing it that way too.

I cannot rave about Laura enough! I was skeptical when I first signed my daughter up for acting lessons, especially seeing how pricey they were going to be, but it was completely worth it. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week, and has even requested that I extend her half hour lesson to an hour.

My daughter has always been very shy, but recently opened up a lot through these lessons. Not just with acting, but at home, with her peers and academically. As a parent, it is wonderful to see that happen.

Laura has been on time to each and every lesson (if not early), and was always prepared with a lesson for the day. She is very informative and knowledgeable on the subject matter (she has covered some Shakespeare as well as contemporary plays), but more importantly for my daughter - she keeps it fun.

If you decide to sign up for acting lessons, experienced or not, go with Laura! As my daughter says, "she's really cool."

About Megan

I am originally from North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been involved in music, theatre and dance since the age of 3.

Great teacher to learn!

Megan is great to learn with. I play other instruments but I wanted to start learning the piano and how to read music. She was very patient and really enforced the importance of getting into the habit of practicing, even if it's just 15 minutes a day! I highly recommend her for piano beginner adults and children.

Patient, communicative and fun!

I played the violin years ago and decided to pick it back up again. Megan was very patient and was very communicative with how to help me. She also came up with very fun ways to keep me practicing. She worked very well with me as an adult but I've also seen her teach very young children and her patience and creative teaching shines with the young ones as well! If you're looking for a personable, fun teacher that inspires, Megan is the teacher for you.

Bailey E. Tempe, AZ

Bailey has aught swim lesson curriculum through the American Red Cross and Star Guard for 3 years in the City of Glendale.

In swim classes, students ages 3 and up will learn swimming skills from basic, life-saving skills (rolling onto their back in the water, getting out of the pool without a ladder, etc.) to refined, efficiency skills (body rotation in water, proper form in all 4 strokes, etc.) Students will gain confidence in the water, understand water safety concepts, learn new body positions and strokes, develop endurance and will eventually be equipped for participation in swim teams!

Lessons will be conducted in the pool at my complex during summer months only, as the pool is not heated.
