About George
I am so glad you’re here!

The music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

Discover for yourself why families love my innovative music lessons for kids.

YES! Music Matters!

The curriculum is built on research that proves MUSIC MATTERS. Music affects virtually every aspect of development and when young children are consistently engaged by music during the “musical window” they benefit at many levels.

What about private lessons?

Do I believe in private lessons? You bet! But I know from experience that private lessons are most valuable for older kids who have the ability to concentrate in a one-to-one setti
ng.

With this Private setting you will have a solid foundation in keyboard skills and music theory and typically excel quickly in their continued music education and when learning other instruments. The education and experiences a child has in my music program sets them up for success with private instruction.

Music Program

Builds spatial-temporal reasoning skills critical for greater success in math and science studies.

Music students out-perform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math.

Music students receive more academic honors and awards than non-music students.

Develops social and emotional skills including the ability to relate to others and better express ideas, and less likely to have behavior/discipline problems.

I offer up to 2 recitals a year so that you can perform everything you know.

Feel free to reach out and let's setup some lessons.

Thank you, George F.

George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.

About Melody
My musical experience began at the age of 4 on the piano. I have been classically trained for most of my life. I have performed on soundtracks, played with bands (in genres from Jazz to Metal), and accompanied choirs. I have taught intro to piano and music theory since the age of 15. Currently, I teach throughout the Dallas metroplex, play in several bands, as well as write music for Television and Film.

I see music as a language. Once it is mastered, it can be shared with anyone, anywhere. My goal as an instructor is to provide my students with an opportunity to discover their own musical potentials. From breaking the ice from playing for the very first time, to perfecting even the most structured and difficult pieces, I feel there are no limits. I feel comfortable teaching in any genre and always tailor my classes to match my studen
ts own individual learning style. In my lessons, I highlight important principles right from the start, such as posture, proper fingering, and rhythm training, to ensure no bad habits form that later are hard to break. As we become more confident in our playing, we transfer some of the traits contained within us. Those traits become the character and style of our "musical speech," which will help to define us as musicians. I recommend books and provide sheet music when we start learning songs. Learning music with me has been said by many of my students as, "the most fun they have ever had playing music."

In addition to music, I teach science in the subjects of Chemistry, Biology, Anatomy and Physiology. I have my 200 hr yoga teaching certification and teach private class to aid people in living a healthy, fulfilling life.

Thanks again for reading my profile. Hope to meet you soon.

I signed up with Melody for something unique - learning to speak from my diaphragm and speak with more bravado and projection. I've always been frustrated by how my voice goes out if I speak loudly in a crowded room.

She took me through different exercises she's borrowed from her singing lessons and applied it to my specific case. I have a much better idea of how my voice should sound and where the sound should come from. Although I still revert back to my old ways, I recognize it and from here on out it's about me actively trying to improve it with the skills provided to me.

Here is my fake 5 star review that looks like a child's writing review because I have bad punctuation and run-on sentences but rest assured this is a student not an instructor trying to plump up my own reviews!Thank you teacher. Signed another funky spelling of a 1st name.

About Cindy
Photography is a passion of mine and I love sharing it with others. I enjoy helping others understand the art and science in photography and would be delighted to work with you.

--- REVIEWS ---
Prior students and clients have given me 5 of 5 stars in all 51 online ratings across various websites. Students have told me they appreciate the way I simplify complex topics, such as in these reviews from prior students:

Incredibly helpful
Cindy was incredibly helpful, and really went "above and beyond" in every way. She's extremely knowledgeable and did a tremendous amount of research in order to supplement her work on this job. Saved me many, many hours of potential aggravation — I will definitely continue to rely on her for expertise with all things Lightroom/Photoshop/PostProduction for photography. Highly recommended!

Computer Challenged student gives her 5 stars plus!
Cindy was very patient and worked well with my low computer skill level. The class was very informative and fun. I believe we hit it off right away. I can't wait for my next class.
- Hope S., Snellville, GA

Very patient.
Cindy was able to untangle my Lightroom 6 update snarl with patience and humor. She has an excellent grip on the mechanics of Lightroom and communicates well. I recommend her highly.
- Elizabeth S., Middleton, MD

Excellent
Contacted Cindy a few months ago to help me to put together a slide show, clean up my photos, To say that I'm technically inept would be a compliment. At my age (you don't want to know) just about all these new programs give me the shakes. I was using a rather basic photo program and she recommend I take a look at Adobe Lightroom. I was notified that it would look a bit intimidating and was pretty aggressive. That was an understatement. Well, it's been a couple months now and I think the Adobe LR program is absolutely terrific. I've become quite proficient and the program is so inclusive that I'm sure, despite how far I've come along, it will always be able to do what I need with the help of Cindy. She has been very responsive, knowledgeable, organized and very patient. My lessons will be ongoing (every two weeks) and will build upon a strong foundation. Highly recommend Cindy.
- Tom K., Marietta, GA

About Bill
I have always been a self-studier in my entire life. Being able to learn with just books and your brain is a crucial skill to have! However, I know not everyone (and sometimes even myself) have the discipline and motivation to keep going during hard times. This is where a tutor would come in handy.

I enjoy tutoring and helping other overcome problems that I have encountered myself because it enhances my own understanding and makes me happy that my self-studying is helping others. Sometimes, my students even bring up alternative ways of thinking that I have never thought of before!

Aside from academics, I enjoy playing the piano. I also play the occasional volleyball and improv theater.

Preparing for the GRE test was a little stressful. I did not know what topics I should focus on in the little time I had, but Bill was able to break all the content into manageable sections. We managed to cover almost all the topics and my test went really well!

Learning piano has been an amazing experience because Bill tries his best to pass his musical passion down to me. He doesn't take the boring route of learning piece by piece as many other teachers often do, but he focused strongly on musicality, style, and interpretation.

This makes practice and learning more engaging instead of becoming a mindless chore.

About Henry
I am a college student majoring in Informatics with a minor in data science. I love working with technology but am especially passionate about educating others. During my academic career, I've had a variety of roles in education.

I began as a course assistant leading review sessions for a basic computing course. I then moved onto writing lesson plans and leading larger review sessions for statistics courses for my university. My programming tutoring started with a company using a project-based curriculum. Here, we taught students basic programming skills and computer science knowledge by leading a step-by-step guide to create their own Gamemaker Game and their own Minecraft Mods.

I then worked in smaller classrooms teaching programming through Python, Alice, and Scratch. Here, students worked on applications Here I taught students fro
m a simple "rock, paper, scissors" application to a more advanced Twitter Bot using a Raspberry Pi and the Twitter API.

Younger students can start learning a 4th generation language like Scratch or Alice. Older students may excel in learning Python or basic web development.

About Leo
My name is Leo. I've been a musician for 28 years and teaching for 14 years and I still continue to pursue all things concerning music with the same passion, perseverance, and love I had at the beginning of my music career.

I received my formal training at Texas State University where I studied Classical guitar and Music Education while also playing in Hard Rock bands in San Antonio. While still in college, I started teaching music privately to help pay for my education. I soon found myself with a successful business and decided to focus on it full time.

My goal is to produce quality music lessons available to anyone who's ever desired to learn the guitar, piano, music production, music theory, Pro Tools, songwriting & arranging, composing for film & video games, and all other important music skills in the comfort of their home.

The starting point of all achievement is desire, so if you desire to become a better musician then don't hesitate, get started now.

About Natasha
Hello, I'm Natasha and I grew up loving math and science. These subjects always felt very logical and natural to me, and I hope to share my love and intuition for them with every student I teach. My passion for math and science brought me to Caltech, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering with a focus in Applied Math.

I've previously tutored elementary and middle school children where I provided one-on-one assistance with homework help and exam prep in Math. I love that tutoring is not a one-size-fits-all approach and that each student can view a particular problem very differently than his or her peers. I do my best to tweak my pace and teaching style to fit each student's needs more closely, so that they can get the most out of each session.

I extensively programmed in R for 4 years in industry, and made s
ome very interesting data visualizations to represent statistical analyses of open-source data. Statistics feels a lot more approachable when there are visualizations to illustrate the concepts.

I graduated with a Chemical Engineering degree from Caltech, and worked in a protein chemistry lab for 3.5 years. I have in-depth knowledge in high-school and college-level organic chemistry, physical chemistry, thermodynamics and spectroscopy.

I grew up in a bilingual environment and so am proficient in both English and Mandarin Chinese. Having also learned French and Thai through my childhood and adolescence, I am no stranger to learning a new language and will be happy to guide a student through learning Chinese for the first time! I enjoy learning about China's rich history of over 5000 years, and believe that the best way to teach the language is to let it come alive with stories that have been handed down over many dynasties and generations.

Talk to you soon! Drop me a message so we can see if I can fit your needs.

Having only known Sarah in-person for a brief time before she moved out of state, I'm grateful social media kept her in touch. As a fellow photographer with much yet to learn, I'm inspired by her ability to juggle personal and professional time and make explanations simple enough to follow without face-to-face interaction. Her knowledge of the craft combined with her great people skills make her the ideal instructor.
