About Julie
I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (5 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years
of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
PIANO lessons in Living Room: piano near front entryway, couch, loveseat, over-sized chair, dining room table, open space, end table with chair, parents may sit in on lesson.

SINGING lessons in Recording Studio: keyboard, recording equipment, desk, 2 chairs, music stand, microphone, private room. Parents may wait in adjacent rec room or sit in on lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson books, the students should provide their instrument.

I do have a mobile keyboard to bring for SINGING lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1

Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification

Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Lab certified instructor

About Jessica
My name is Jessica. I have been teaching Chinese since I moved to Paris in 2007. Now I am living in Santa Clara, California and I still have a huge passion to teach and spread the Chinese Culture.

For adult students I usually help them with General / Business Chinese (Speaking, Listening, Writing and HSK/AP Test) and Life in China.

For kids I help them with their Chinese homework and also college students to pass their school exams. I teach all from beginner to advanced levels. If you are a Native French speaker I can also teach you Chinese in French as I speak it fluently.

I give Individual Private Classes or Small Group Lessons (2-4 people). I provide a quiet place for class in Santa Clara.
Online class is available too (ask me for online class discount).

I also help people to practice their French conversation and gram
mars (beginner to intermediate level).

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

About Jamee
Professional Korean linguist, liaison and cultural consultant. I started my linguistics career as a tutor and an instructor and have made my way up through working as a textbook writer, interpreter, translator, voice-over into the position I am in now. Full-blooded Korean, I was born in Republic of Korea - commonly known as South Korea - but was tossed back and forth from Korea to United Kingdom. From a young age, I was forced to be bilingual and forced to mend cultural gaps and balance two very different cultures. Thus something I have learnt from a very young age and gained professional knowledge on as I have worked in the industry. I have a passion for teaching and one of the services I offer as a cultural consultant is employee relocation training for businessmen and engineers.
I have taught students from various backgrounds, Koreans
, Americans, Korean-Americans, Chinese from age 5 to as old as a professor in his 50s. I am able to customize the lesson to fit the needs of the student and capitalizing on my skills as a cultural consultant, am able to provide a mend in the cultural gap, and not solely on linguistics. You will find that I am an encouraging teacher, but if you do not have a desire to learn, I will not have a desire to teach.

Dr. Tem is a wonderful teacher for any age and audience. If you only want to learn to play, then you will be satisfied. However, if you are interested in music as art and a form of expressing one self, you will find this is where Dr. Tem's ability to teach really shines through.

About Mary
English language teacher with more than 10 years of experience. I have taught all levels, from beginners who don't speak any English, to advanced lessons within businesses where my clients already understood English but wanted to improve pronunciation, grammar, and email etiquette. I am passionate about teaching and my students express how much I help them with valuable feedback and quality lessons.

I attended Seton Hall University for Education and Spanish. I attended Rutgers to study teaching English as a Second Language. I am certified in New Jersey.

In our first lesson I like to see what level students are, ask what their goals are, and begin lessons that target those goals. I love to help my students accomplish their goals and enjoy the process!
