About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I would love to be your voice and/or piano teacher! I have been studying and performing classical music for 21 years. My relationship with music started at age 9 with the Contra Costa Children's Choir and I have maintained my classical vocal studies ever since. Along with my vocal studies, I studied classical piano privately with Keith Snell for 7 years, competing and achieving high marks in regional competitions. I went on to receive her Bachelor's degree in Music at Mannes College of Music in New York City and finished my education at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where I received my Masters, receiving training in vocal pedagogy and physiology, as well as vocal performance. I graduated from SFCM in 2009 and immediately began perusing both a ...

Patient and encouraging

I'm always impressed with how Jessica is patient with our 7 year old daughter and still is able to draw her out and motivate her when she is tired from school. Jessica always finds creative ways to be inspirational. Both my husband and I drive 15 miles to be able to have Jessica teach our little girl. We think she is worth it. She has been flexible and always tried her best to work within our schedule and has even driven out to our house to cover a lesson when things didn't work out in the schedule.

Wonderful teacher

Jessica is teaching piano and voice to my 10 year daughter, and I am so impressed with her skills as a teacher. She is patient, encouraging, and inspiring, and her love for both music and teaching is apparent. She is also extremely knowledgeable about music theory and uses a teaching method that's very effective and gets students actually playing music right away, without shortchanging their long term development as musicians. Jessica is a rare find, plus she comes to our house for lessons!

Jessica is great with kids and makes music so much fun!

I have two girls, ages 9 and 6. They both take piano with Jessica once a week. I can't express enough how great Jessica is with them and her ability to adjust to their ages and their ways of learning.
Jessica is so passionate about music which is demonstrated in her teaching style and of course all her education, training, and performances.
Jessica is so wonderful in her communication - showing such support throughout the lesson and has a great ability to explain the music so they understand.
My girls are very fortunate to have such a great mentor and teacher. Jessica is a true professional who is fully committed to music. We could not be happier!

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. I also have worked with various professional children's theatre companies and run my own touring theatre company. I have been a Zumba instructor since 2011 and I have been a swimming instructor/lifeguard since 2003. *** Lesson Details *** I believe that learning anything new should be a fun experience. If it's not fun then you're more likely to get frustrated and quit. My teaching philosophy is that I want to know what inspires you and create lessons that will keep you or your children interested and having fun. I offer 30 and 45 minute lessons. During the first lesson we will figure out a personalized lesson ...

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.

About Hanna

Hanna M is a recent graduate from Columbia College Chicago where she received her Bachelor of Arts degrees in Dance and Arts Management. Hanna has been a dancer since the young age of three and continues to train and perform throughout the Chicago dance community. Hanna took her first yoga class with her aunt when she was in high school and felt it was a great complement to her dance training. It wasn't until she took her first class at CorePower Yoga that she fell in love with Vinyasa yoga and discovered a moving meditation that awakened her to the journey of this practice. Hanna knew that she had to share this realization with others. Hanna received her 200-hour Power Vinyasa Yoga Certification from CorePower Yoga in the summer of 2014 and completed their Extensions program shortly ...

Working with Leah is the best. We hired her to do a staff training and the team raved about it. She gives all kinds of verbal and nonverbal cues throughout the class, as well as both easy and advanced move modifications so that students can tailor the workout to their level. She believes workouts should only be done if they're fun and she brings the fun! Her class is guaranteed to give you an amazing, high-energy workout. She even dressed according to our 80s theme and did an excellent job at picking music that we loved. She also did a great job at adjusting her teaching for a group of about 20. I could not more highly recommend Leah!

Leah is a tremendous instructor! Her class was my first introduction to Zumba and I could not have asked for a better instructor. She is high energy, motivational and patient. Leah is particularly adept at teaching to all skill levels simultaneously. Her classes are so fun that you hardly realize how much actual work you're doing. I would absolutely recommend her without reservation.

So I took my first ever Zumba class with the lovely Leah and it was everything I hoped for and more. Leah has a very fun and energetic personality and I think that is what really got me through my first Zumba class. **Also, should be noted that the songs Leah picked out were all very upbeat (because duh it's Zumba) but in particular her selection of songs were "so choice" it really made the class go by fast! If you want an awesome workout or just need a little dose of sunshine Leah is your instructor!

Zumba! If your Zumba instructor keeps telling you to take it easy, slow down, slow down more, SHE IS WRONG! Zumba is energetic, fun and full of sassiness if you are willing to move your body!

It's for everyone, men and women! Come and shake it off with me!

I'm getting certified very soon but I have got choreography for us to start right away.
