*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz

Body transformation is NOT a one-size fits all formula. Everybody is different and every body is different, so we will cater a workout and nutritional regimen that makes sense for your needs. Combinations of body weight exercises, free weight training, resistance bands, etc. are all considered to achieve realistic goals in a healthy, balanced way.

About Matthew
I am a world traveler with over 13 years of tutoring experience. I also have weight trained for about 15 years. Currently working on my PhD in sociolinguistics at the University of Pittsburgh, I received my MA in Spanish from NYU and can help you with many different areas. My experience as an editor for a publishing company, combined with other professional experience in a variety of positions, allow me to offer students a unique perspective on diverse subjects.

I learned a lot from Marcel and liked his vision of how to redo the garden. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we discussed how to improve it. He pulled out his iPad and made several garden sketches that were helpful. The original garden was cluttered with overlapping plants and we decided to remove several of them and re-"orchestrate" the remaining ones. (We only bought new plants if they were needed to realize the new garden vision.) He is also a very hard worker, helping me (physically) transplant and add plants as required. For example, we transplanted a 100+ (?) pound Sago palm across the front yard. I would never have done that on my own (too heavy for me) but together we did it! Highly recommended. Bill

Excellent teacher. We took a 20'x2' section of "dirt" in the back, redid the soil, transplanted a rose in that section, added two other new roses and a bunch of ground cover. Looks great! Recommended.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

About Amy
Hello, my name is Amy and I am very excited to be teaching out of my studio, Double A music. I took 12 years of private music lessons on various instruments. I have taught for about 9 years, and have an associates degree in teaching from Western Technical College in La Crosse, Wisconsin. I am also certified to teach Piyo. I have been attending Piyo classes for over a year and have been teaching since September 2018.

I enjoy helping students succeed in many areas of music, such as school orchestra, performing solo, accompaniment, improvisation, and more. I understand each student's needs will vary and provide a variety of methods and supplement materials for this purpose. As a Piyo instructor I will help you individualize your lesson to meet your fitness goals.

When you sign up with me you will be greeted with a welcome email. I wil
l ask you a couple questions to help us both prepare for your first lesson. I will also send you a copy of my lesson policy. I look forward to meeting you!

***Please Note!!! I do not teach every other week music lessons! I strongly feel the student needs their weekly time with me to stay focused and motivated. If you sign up and select every other week I will deny your request. Thank you!***

I have been involved in the fitness world for over 15 years and continue to go to the gym 7 times a week. Learn how to reap what you sow as you exert time, sweat, tears, and hopefully (little to no) blood in weight training! It feels good when you are strong, fit, and healthy!

About Austin
Hello! My name is Austin, and my personal life motto is: doing my best to help others realize and reach their best! I have been teaching a number of topics ranging from music, fitness, to technology, writing, and religious texts for over 7 years. Over these years, I have also worked a myriad of jobs to receive invaluable experience as well as learn how to interact with all kinds of people.

It has always been my deep passion and true joy to journey along with someone who is simply willing to learn the many gifts that life has for us to enjoy! I am currently studying for my masters at Western Seminary, interning at a church, and a certified teacher here at TakeLessons.

Time and time again, I have come to realize that life is about serving, teaching, and loving others with what we already have; teaching is such a simple yet profound
way to practice this!

I look forward to doing my best in order to help you realize, reach, and ultimately relish your best!

Best regards,

Austin Ying
