Since this is a dying art, it has been awhile since I've been commercially active, but I have taught classes before and have the supplies. I'd be most willing to share what I know with others who would be interested in keeping this art form alive!

I was a student of Marsha’s for several years, and I have never had such a qualified instructor! Incredibly bright, positive, flexible, and experienced. Genuinely enjoyed my time learning from her.

Daniel cancelled my son's first lesson with less than a one hour notice. He attended the second lesson, but again cancelled the third lesson with a 30 minute notice. He sent me a text message to notify me and I called him back and left a voicemail. 24 hours later and I still haven't gotten a call back. I want my money back. He has wasted my son's time. Poor professionalism.

Daniel adapted throughout the course of the hour-long lesson to understand what I already knew and find appropriate ways to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. He also started me on the process of learning a new approach when looking at and learning to play new music pieces.

Although my focus as a TakeLessons teacher is primarily in music, I also teach a killer Calligraphy class. I do not take the fact that I am 'multi-talented' lightly. I know good calligraphy and I know mediocre calligraphy. Before getting more involved with music, I taught Calligraphy at a junior college for 7 years. I taught over 750 students and took classes from a student of Donald Jackson, one of the Scribes of the Queen of England. I can strengthen the work and techniques of intermediate or advanced calligraphers (and illuminators) and am very adept at teaching beginners. We can meet in my music studio or your home. I have a list of preferred materials and love this amazing communication form.

I'm a student at ASU's School of Music and wanted to get extra help with singing, since it is not my primary instrument. I've been studying music for 14 years playing the piano, violin, and guitar. Marty is very knowledgeable and has helped me so much with not only my voice, but I've also been able to use what she's taught me to help me with my other instruments and classes. She has helped me in areas none of my other teachers have really touched, such as improvisation and accompaniment, and she explains things very thoroughly and with good examples. She is very dedicated and cares deeply about her students. I highly recommend Marty!

Marty has taught my kids piano for 2 yrs. My kids are 7 and 9 and have progressed tremendously. My son has autism and Marty has been very patient with him and has increased his love for music. I applaud Marty for her professionalism and her knowledge of music. I definitely recommend her as a piano instructor for all skill levels.

I can teach you how to make money with Calligraphy and Hand Lettering.

I start out with nomenclature, then I go into the basics of composition, flourishes, tracking, and anatomy. Then I get into skeletal stroke order for Serif, Sans Serif and Script (focusing on whichever one the student wants), and I provide more in depth training in each specific style of interest.

I also can teach you hand lettering which is different from Calligraphy in that the rules are much looser and it is very stylized, and is a lot more fun.

Educated in Europe, I was always inspired by my teachers and travels to continue honing my artistic skills. With practice, anybody can develop their own style, and I believe it's my duty to pass on the knowledge that was instilled in me as a young artist.
Expression of one's soul in art may be sometimes stronger than words, something that psychologists have proven for years.
Practicing calligraphy is very rewarding in time but the most important tool is knowing the cursive letters of the alphabet. Or learning them with me.

Had my first lesson with Isabella. She's a great Italian teacher and I'm looking forward to my next lessons. She quickly assessed my skill level and tailored the lesson to my needs.

A very fun lesson today! We covered nationalities, telling time, days of the week and months. Also entering/exiting stores and restaurants. Good advice about emergency exits and always having the American Embassy phone number handy. I'm getting so excited about my upcoming trip to Italy!
