Melissa M.

Sunnyvale, CA

About Melissa

I have been teaching since 2006 on a variety of topics. I graduated with an BA from the University of Wisconsin. My degree is in History with and emphasis on East Asian history.

I've taught all a
ge groups from age 2 up to retirees. My teaching experience includes one-on-one and group classes in a variety of settings. I've taught corporate classes, private lessons, small groups, and traditional classroom lessons.

We have a student-centric philosophy of learning. Lessons are generally relaxed and designed to work towards accomplishing student determined goals. While all students will study similar fundamentals regarding technique, theory, and performance, every lesson is as different as every person. Special focus on topics like music theory, self-accompaniment, composition, song writing, and home recording are available as well.

What are your personal goals? We'll tell you what you need to do to get there, and help you take the steps to achieve your aspirations.

Lessons with small children are more focused on just having fun while developing a good musical foundation, but we prefer for them to have as much personal ownership of their lesson as possible.

Sarah L.

Redwood City, CA

About Sarah

Hello, and thank you for visiting my page! I have been an artist for my whole life and I am passionate about sharing my love of creativity with others. I earned an MFA in Costume Design from UCLA in 2
007 and have been a freelance costume designer, college professor, photographer, illustrator, and jewelry designer.

As much as I love to create, what I really love is to help somebody learn to do something they love and create something they can be proud of! I am happy teaching all ages, and I specialize in helping each student find his or her unique vision.

I can teach sewing by hand and on a machine, including how to read and understand the instructions in commercial patterns. Bring your project and I'll help you make it happen! I am highly skilled at teaching life drawing, as well as marker rendering and watercolor fashion illustration. Photography is my other passion, and I look forward to helping you understand how to use a camera's many features, and your eye, to create art.

Sarah is a delightful, smart and talented photography teacher. She went to the trouble to read up on my particular kind of camera so she knew could tell me all the details. So helpful! Totally recommend her to anyone who wants to learn photography!

Los Gatos, CA

About Irina

Hello. My name is Irina. I am from Russia but fluently speak English since I moved with my family to Los Gatos 5 years ago. I graduated from RJ Fisher Middle School and Los Gatos High School. Currentl
y enrolled in Liberty University online (it's in Verginia). I am aiming for Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design to work for Web Development somewhere in Silicon Valley, so I can earn my first million. I love people, love horses, love drawing, physics was my best subject in high school. I thought my lil brother, thought a girl Russian, worked in food delivery service, volunteered with horse work and learned how to properly sit on horseback during summer because my dream back then was to become natural horsemanship trainer. I turned 18 just recently and married, so have a little more responsibilities and would take any opportunity to help our family succeed. Thank You!
