Marty has a true heart for music! She really cares about the success of her students. The only reason I didn't give her 5 stars is because I had a long-time instructor previously who was out of this world, so I couldn't select "Best Instructor ever" as that would do him a disservice. He no longer teaches. Marty comes in a close second and I would recommend her services. She is sweet and kind. I enjoyed my time with her!

She was patient with my technology foibles, and taught me how to use White Balance in a clear and concise manner.

We went over a lot of camera information in this lesson. Julie did an excellent job of explaining everything. I really enjoyed my class with her.

Lynn is very knowledgable about many aspects of art. She has an incredible ability to relate the student (Me) and how I want to learn. Lynn is very personable and offers great advice and insight to the drawings that I want to learn to create. I highly recommend her to other students interested in improving their artistic capabilities.

I have had nothing but the best experience working with Marlisa. She is patient, she takes the time to verify that you've grasped a concept you're struggling with and works to find the best way to communicate with YOU. I don't think anyone would regret spending an hour or two learning and chatting with Marlisa. I feel so inspired and more confident each time I leave a session. If you're on the fence about trying this; don't hesitate!

Marlisa is a very kind, patient and knowledgeable teacher. I took my granddaughter to her for a pottery lesson and she was very happy with Marlisa's teaching, resulting in her being able to throw a bowl on the wheel that she can actually use. I would highly recommend Marlisa as a teacher for students of all ages!

I have taken Both A Photography and an Adobe Photoshop Class from Blake.
Blake is Extensively Knowledgeable and Compassionate about what He Teaches I may go into the class with a misunderstanding of a particular Subject or Topic but close with a Reassurance and Confidence in both Myself and the Subject; That is because Blake will not stop until He is assured I know the Amswer. I would Highly Recommend Blake To Anyone Who is Looking to Further Their Knowledge And Education With Great Appeciation and Grattitude, Ellen S

Hilda has me learning the finer points first: pronunciation and the alphabet. It's certainly tricky for a 39 year old brain to learn a completely new language but Hilda makes it fun and I am really enjoying our lessons.
