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 Vincent
Hello Everyone! Hope you are all having a great day so far. A little bit about myself - I've recently graduated from Rice University with my Master's of Music degree. I am a concert pianist, as well as a professional figure skater. I have toured with the production Holiday On Ice in Europe, performing both as a figure skater and a live musician.
Most importantly though, I have a passion for teaching and love to help my students improve. There is nothing more satisfying than communicating knowledge that I've learned to my students and see the progress build throughout the months of hard work. I have taken piano pedagogy courses throughout my undergraduate and master's studies, and am comfortable with teaching students of all ages and levels.
My piano teaching studio is set up at my apartment in Downtown, and I teach ice skating at the
Galleria mall, Memorial city mall, as well as the Bellerive Ice Center.

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!
