About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

About Tammy
I conduct group lessons for young children, which I am unable to state on my profile/list of services here. You can send me a message if you are interested in them!

I believe EVERYONE should have the opportunity to learn music, especially children, in a fun and enjoyable way! As someone who grew up around music (my mother is a music teacher!) I wish to give that chance to others.

I started playing the piano at around the age of four, and helped out as a substitute teacher at my mother's music school back in Singapore while in High School. I left shortly after to pursue music at Berklee College of Music, where I graduated summa cum laude in August 2013 with a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance and Contemporary Writing and Production!

My students range from as 3.5 years old, to the grandmother of a couple of my students. I wo
rk mostly with children, but have a handful of adult beginner students I work with as well.

Everyone is different - and I personally take the time and effort to develop and customize my lessons and materials for each student. I'll push you (a little!), to make you realize just how much you can do!

Music is an all-rounded experience. Not only can I offer you a chance to learn how to play different styles of piano, from jazz to pop to classical, but I can also teach you how to write your own songs, arrange them, and perhaps (if you like) record them!

A very energetic and enthusiastic instructor. Tammy came very well prepared for her lesson and brought readily custom-made materials that make the lesson very smooth. Our son is really excited about his piano lessons again!!

Thanks a lot!

Hi, there! My name is Helen and I can't wait to meet you!
I've been teaching private lessons since 2009 and have loved helping my students to speak a new language, to successfully pass their exams, and to increase their language confidence.
I went to National University of Donetsk (Ukraine) and earned a Master’s degree in French language and literature in 2010. I'm a patient and easy going person and my teaching methods always depend on student’s age and language needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Azalea
Welcome! My name is Azalea, I grew up in Mexico and I am fluent in both English and Spanish. I hold a Master's degree and I have been teaching since 2012. Some of my classroom settings include private lessons, group lessons, summer camps, online lessons, among others. I have experience working with students of all ages and backgrounds such as children, adults, college students, working parents, etc.

I believe it is important for students to be emerged in the language they are learning. For this reason, I like to encourage my students to practice in and outside our lessons as much as possible by speaking, listening, and reading in Spanish. Every single student is different and they all have very different learning techniques; therefore, I personalize my lesson plans to fit my students' needs, learning style, and interests. Plus, the mos
t important part of the learning process is to have fun and to enjoy ourselves every lesson!

Our background or language should never be a reason to feel disconnected from others, like our own family, friends, or colleagues. So if you are looking to learn Spanish for work, school, or just for fun, you are in the right place! I would love to help you conquer your goals and guide you in your Spanish journey!

Thank you for stopping by and please let me know if you have any questions, I can't wait to meet you!

About M.
Over the past year, I have taken time to be a peer educator with the Education and Outreach at Arizona State University, while I have also enjoyed the demands of being a senior design student. Not only have these positions allowed me to mature greatly, they have also aided my inter-personal skills. Although I have demonstrated my capability to excel academically, I am fully aware that it is only in combination with my wit, diligence, tenacity, intuitive and problem-solving skills that my scholastic knowledge can be applied effectively.
