About Amber
I have been a performing singer-songwriter/graphic artist for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs, released several CDs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am both easy going and goal oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons and enjoy every minute.

I provide the syllabus & handouts needed initially
but will may assign a book after the first few lessons. Students should have an empty three-ring binder handy or iPad in addition to owning their own guitar or piano/keyboard. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if needed.

Within 6 months*, the student should know and be able to play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow basic sheet music. Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning.

Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

* results will vary with each student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Each student needs a guitar or piano/keyboard and a 3 ring binder.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting: Folk, Rock, Blues & Country.

Don was very kind, patient, and encouraging. He brought over a lot of his own materials so it was much less stressful trying to find things to do.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

I am thankful I found this astrology teacher. She is amazing at showing a beginner student how planets, signs, and houses may interact and influence one another without using an overwhelming amount of words that you can't understand at beginner level. Her way of teaching is almost like a mini-reading where you can gain insight into both how astrology works and how your chart is influencing who you are/why you feel/do things. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to learn astrology!

Donna is awesome! She's very patient with someone such as myself who is not acquainted with SEO and Wordpress. She went above and beyond my expectations for a first session, her insight and advice was invaluable. She event spent some time researching my issues before we had our first meeting. I look forward to working with her more.

About Kevin
Hi All! My name is Kevin and I live in beautiful San Diego, California. (Although I’m a Midwest native). With my 25 years of Photoshop experience, I am well beyond proficient, and now, I’m into creating photo manipulation with the goal of making fanciful, fun, beautiful, composite art.

I started my journey into composite work about 5 years ago, after seeing some other artists’ work online. I was drawn to the general aesthetic of the surreal landscapes and characters. I love that the only limit is one’s imagination.
After wading through a myriad of different tutorials and speed paintings over the past few years, I was able to master the different tools that allow me to create the kind of art that you see in my profile. If you would like to learn how to create these types of images, I would love to share what I’ve learned with
you and help you achieve your creative ambitions.

Essentially, I am here to offer you a direct approach- no need to wade through fragmented videos or look in different places for help with different skills; I am your one-stop-shop. Simply contact me, and depending on your skill level with Photoshop, we can create an outline of lessons that will work for you. I will also share resources I have used over the years and offer my tips and shortcuts, so you can expand your skill base and increase your skill level, fast.

I hope we get a chance to work together!

Kevin’s photoshop skills are only rivaled by his unusual imagination. His mind lives outside the box and his solutions to any challenge—whether it be a photomanipulation, textures, brush uses or any other art/design problem—blew my mind. Watching him teach and explain things to myself as well as to young artists/designers was not only fun but very easy to follow and understand. I can not recommend Kevin enough.

Kevin is the perfect TECH teacher: patient, creative, and invested in your success. Photoshop can be intimidating. So can trying to learn it from an expert. Kevin breaks it down for you so your choices become intuitive. I never felt he was talking down to me. Kevin only ever encouraged. He provided a great balance of tech know-how and creative inspiration. He has given me the confidence to express myself!

About Steve
Hello,
My name is Steve and I've been teaching for over 30 years in high school and college. My main field was Algebra and Geometry but nothing has excited me more than teaching Excel and watching people understand what it can do for them and their business. Excel is very powerful but also can be very simple - it all depends on what you want to do with it. You don't have to learn it all and I will work hard to give you just what you need while pointing out possible topics you might be interested in. Also, I will help you after the lessons are over with creating formulas and/or troubleshooting. I have taught classes in many of the businesses in East Tennessee as well as two community colleges. I hope you will give me a chance to help you!

Steve's 2.5-hour Microsoft Excel 2016 introductory course was time well spent. He is not only a subject matter expert but also a highly skilled teacher. His teaching style is effective and efficient, and yet he pays careful attention to each student and provides thorough answers to all questions. Highly recommended.

Steve has been our go to Excel instructor at Cleveland State Community College for any Excel Training's we schedule at the college. He is not only a great instructor but an even more amazing person! He is very knowledgeable and know's Excel like the back of his hand. He can teach anything from beginner to advance. Steve keeps his training fun and engaging all while learning the in's and out's of Excel. We have received nothing but amazing review's on Steve from every level of Excel he has instructed. I've even had companies tell me they aren't interested in any excel training unless Steve is the one teaching it. If your looking for someone to show you the ropes of Excel, Steve is your Man!!! You will not be disappointed!!!
