*** 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!

About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

Our son first time playing bassoon. Base on my son experience, he find Joshua to be very nice, patients, and explains a lot of information. It help him understand about the instrument and the sound when he play. He do have a sense of humor which help my son to have fun and be more comfortable. He also teaches other instruments, too. Highly recommended to everyone!!!!

I have been working with Jaqueline for about 8 months now, and can say that she is a very good teacher. She will focus on your strengths and use them to help you learn. She remains flexible to schedule needs and keeps good notes on your progress and what you have learned so far as well as where you are going. I need to learn Portuguese for my work and so she was very focused on keeping my lessons moving from the very basics to ultimately technical terms and meeting conversations. I don't believe I would be productive without her help.

About Davina
I am a fitness professional, personal trainer and speed coach that has a passion for helping my community emphasize the importance of health and wellness. I graduated from the University of Houston with a Bachelors of Arts in Communication and a minor in Spanish, yo hablo espanol .

Proudly, I train people from all different age groups and fitness levels. All of my clients can expect to undergo an initial fitness evaluation in order for me to be able to gauge exactly where they currently are health and fitness wise. This allows me to not only get to know the client better but also get a great idea of their fitness goals for me to customize a personal fitness program.

I specialize in outdoor workouts after being a runner/sprinter for 10 years. I can train clients on basic weight management skills and how to become flexible, stronger, an
d have more power for speed and/or polymeric training. I can help clients recover from old or recent injuries and work with anyone that hasn’t been deemed permanent disabled.

I competed in the Junior Olympics twice in the 4x1m relay and the 100m dash. As a result I have been able to perfect my craft with some of track and field’s most amazing athletes such as Chauntae Bayne and Sanya Richards. Speed conditioning is one of my multiple specializations with the understanding that every client will have their own unique strengths and weakness in all categories of fitness training.

My love and passion for health and wellness allows me to share the importance of exercise with every client that trains with me. I truly enjoy the wide range of workouts that are ever so growing on a daily basis resulting in the different variations of fitness training I present to my clients. Whether it be in the gym, on the track or at the park I look forward to meeting with you, getting active and restoring your fitness journey!

Hi there! My name is Meg and I want to help you gain confidence, get in shape, try something new, or even work on something you’ve been practicing for years! I’m here to help you reach your goals and have fun doing so!

I grew up in North Carolina and began ballet when I was three and theatre a few years later. I studied at the Raleigh City Ballet and did pre-professional programs with Carolina Ballet and the University of NC School of the Arts. My love for theatre kept me from pursuing professional ballet and I attended the University of Michigan and received my BFA in Musical Theatre from one of the top programs in the country.

Currently I am a teacher, actor, and professional dancer with 10 years of teaching and industry experience. I have a versatile background in numerous styles of dance, acting, fitness, modeling and theatre.
I fell in love with performing at a very young age and haven’t stopped since; one of my greatest passions is sharing that love with others!

I work with all ages and levels from toddlers to adults, beginners to experts! My lessons are challenging, creative, and lots of fun! I focus on encouraging creativity and recognizing small victories as we work towards bigger goals. Nothing brings me more joy than watching my students achieve exciting things and know I helped them get there. Whatever it is you want to accomplish, let’s make it happen!
