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!

About Marsha

It is a pleasure to meet you! You probably came here with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for you can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy; I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven, and I just reconnected with my first teacher again on Facebook, what a lovely world this is. Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years. I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest ...

Ms. Marsha is such a great teacher. My son who is 11 years old is learning a lot in such a short period of time. She makes it easy for him to understand how to read notes and how to play them in such a fun way. We were just going to try 8 sessions, but after just 2 sessions, we would like to continue for more. We just love her! I'm glad she had an opening when we were looking for a teacher.

Daniel A. Schaumburg, IL

The specific style of calligraphy I teach is Chinese Calligraphy. Note: I do not teach western style calligraphy.

About Daniel

In addition to teaching music, I am also a special education assistant and wrestling/track coach at Lake Zurich Middle School South and an assistant Kung Fu/Tai Chi instructor at Green Mountain Arts in Logan Square, Chicago, Illinois. Jazz piano, Voice, and Composition are my main areas of expertise. However, I have also been recording, and playing guitar almost my entire life. I fully believe in music education not only for entertainment and personal enjoyment, but for many other means. Beyond its capacity for being used as entertainment, music aids in learning, helps develop advanced motor skills, increases memory function, and many other purposes for a well rounded education. It is my goal to help educate the next generation in traditional music practices as well as incorporate new ...

Daniel is awesome!! He really knows how to customize the lesson to your skill level and makes it so that it's easy to learn. I'm already memorizing and learning things that I didn't think I would be able to. I'm really enjoying my lessons and so glad that I signed up. Looking forward to many more lessons from Daniel!

Daniel is a highly skilled piano teacher.

I have been very impressed with Daniel's instruction abilities - he is patient, tuned-in to whether or not I 'get it', and has opened the door to a whole new way to re-learn piano for personal enjoyment.

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

Monika is such a patient and skillful teacher. I was a little skeptical that something as visually detailed as calligraphy could work well online but I've been so happy with my daughter's experience. Monika is also flexible and really great about the times we've had to reschedule. This is so important.

Lisa R. Bolinas, CA

Writing is a beautiful art, and I'd love to share what I've learned over the years.
Schooled in rigorous old fashioned French village, calligraphy was a major subject, hours and hours of handwriting practice. It's all about finding your position and your flow. And then make it into an art project!
I also learned Arabic calligraphy just for the art initially. It's so much fun and very relaxing. I'd be delighted to guide you in the art of Calligraphy!

About Lisa

Hello there! My name is Lisa and I believe that we are all given gifts to share them with others. That's why I teach. I'm a multilingual percussionist; I've taught French, Spanish and ESL for many years in several parts of the world. I've also studied, played and tutored traditional Ghanaan and Malinke percussion for almost 10 years and have acquired strong polyrhythmic foundation. I love and can teach the art of Calligraphy, including mainly French and Arabic calligraphy. I earned a BA in Linguistics from UC Berkeley and have acquired and developed a lot more academic skills that I'd be happy to transmit (see my list of subjects). I'm also a mother of 2 little boys, 1 and 4 years old, so I have no time to get bored! I still do my best to remember to take a break and breathe to ...
