Kristin is a wonderful teacher implementing the practical and the theory at the pace of the student. She made this 29-year old going through a mid-life crisis wanting to learn their first instrument very relaxed from the start. Kristin also bends the curriculum to your genre's to make it more enthusiastic.

I've been teaching Italian since 2003 and my students have gone on to develop a deep love of its culture, travel abroad, and make new friends. Within the first few lessons, you'll understand why Italian is one of the most beautiful languages of the world, and as time goes on you’ll love it forever. I lived in Italy for almost a year and I would like to share my experience about it with you. I love working with students of all ages and levels and I can't wait to meet you! Ti aspetto. A presto)

Philippe is an extremely engaging and patient instructor. I had the pleasure of taking two of his virtual courses, one with about 12 students and one with 5. He was able to teach to everyone's level without leaving anyone behind or boring those with a little more experience. He also made himself available outside of class to answer questions. I believe I made great strides with my French speaking skills because of him.

Philippe is an awesome instructor. I have learned so much from him about French culture that one could just not get from a textbook. He is very encouraging and his teaching style is very nice to work with.
Merci beaucoup Philippe! 😁😁😁

David enjoys teaching students from all different backgrounds and levels of proficiency. Whether you are just starting out or a virtuoso shredder in the making, he is happy to teach you! Over all, he is fairly laid back, as long as you practice. He usually combines work with reading off of the treble clef (what he likens to "eating your vegetables." You may not want to do it, but it will make you a healthier musician!) with learning more popular songs (or songs the student says they would like to learn) through tablature and chord charts, depending on the style of the song.

David is also very pro music theory. He usually incorporates music theory into the curriculum in conjunction with the material already being discussed. He is also very knowledgeable about composition/songwriting, and if the student is interested in learning more about this area, he is happy to share what he knows!

About David

David is a successful singer/songwriter/guitarist out of Fairfax, VA. He has a bachelor's degree in Music with a concentration in composition from Salisbury University, where he also studied jazz and classical guitar . In the 25 years he has been performing (20 of those professionally) and playing

"I booked Kim for an in-person crotchet lesson and knew right away she was a good fit for me. Our first and second in-person lessons were learning the basics as I have no experience. I just finished my third lesson and I am already working on projects.

Kim is very kind, patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and flexible with booking and selecting projects of interest. She can anticipate your next move and is able to read her students very early on to know where they may struggle and/or have success. I recommend Kim to anyone who has a desire to learn!"

"my instructor Felicia was fantastic. She was knowledgeable, patient & extremely helpful. I learned so much in the half hour class. She was able to improvise when I was missing an important component to my machine. She truly is a genius. I scheduled another session at the conclusion of my 1st class, but find I must cancel due to physical problems. I am disabled with severe arthritis & her class is on the 3 rd floor. She carried my machine up for me & I made it up the stairs but when I got home later that evening my knees were so swollen I had to ice them & take pain medication. I know I cannot do that again & will let my instructor know it is not het fault."

5 Chess Moves to Up Your Endgame

The end of the game has come. You have successfully out-maneuvered and outfought your opponent, conquering large swaths of the chessboard, and approaching that triumphal moment when you will topple the opponent’s king and declare that he has fallen---in other words, a checkmate (recall that “checkmate” is an anglicization of “shah mat”, Persian for “the king is dead”)… Only to realize that you don’t quite know how to finish the game, which inevitably results in a slapsti …
