About Joshua
I am a tutor who earned a music teaching degree, substitute taught, and didn't become a school teacher. I held professional tech retail jobs and am supplementing my life with my passion - education.

Whatever subject or instrument I teach, I celebrate students' successes; and I enjoy helping learners have new aha moments.

The majority of my students take guitar, bass guitar, or Spanish lessons. I am an educator and help my students learn other skills and knowledge sets too.

I went to Ohio State University for college, earned a BA in Music Education, and graduated Cum Laude. I also spent 4 years in the Ohio State University Marching Band.

Through my healing journey, I've developed patience, insight, and understanding for my students' learning processes.

I'm excited to help you incorporate new skills into your life!

In search of helping our 10 year old son build some self-confidence we sought out clarinet lessons this summer. He started playing in school last year, and it was something our reluctant son liked "enough" to want to build up some competency. Joshua has been amazing! He finds just the right amount of challenge to encourage my son to practice, but not get discouraged. My son looks forward to his lesson each week and told me that he isn't even sure he wants to switch to saxophone next year because he is having so much fun playing the clarinet. Joshua is amazing with children, and has spent time getting to know our kiddo and find out what will work best for him. Patient, calm, and inspiring--very talented instructor.

Joshua Blatman is a fantastic music teacher. He has a great resume, is experienced in a variety of instruments, and a solid background in teaching.
I think any kids lucky enough to learn music from Joshua will have fun and hopefully fall in love with learning it, just like my kids have.

I whole-heartedly recommend Joshua for anyone of any age and any skill level who wants to enrich their life learning guitar. I appreciate the fact that he makes the time and has the patience to adapt to my needs. Joshua is flexible in scheduling - especially for those unforeseen incidents - which is appreciated.

Being an adult beginner with music lessons, Joshua eases my frustration on immediately wanting to play perfect notes and chords. I look forward to continuing lessons.

About Sasha
Hey, Sasha speaking! I would be thrilled to share my passion for dance with you. I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole). I have been teaching different subjects for 6 years with a focus in instructing ballroom for the last 4 years. I believe dance is a healing and liberating art and would love to help you find your flow. Not only is dance fun, but it will come in handy at parties and events, and is a great way to socialize. I am experienced with both kids ages 4 and up as well as adults, so please feel free to contact me, and we can begin an awesome journey.

I am now offering online group classes in various subjects as well. Subjects include Zumba, Bellydance, and Hip hop with more coming soon. Classes run weekday mornings and some weekends.

About Lindsay
Hey there! My name is Lindsay. I truly enjoy teaching everything in the realm of physical activity. I grew up dancing at Mark Spivaks Institute in Jacksonville, Florida. I studied under a Russian Prima ballerina. I played soccer. I swam. My lifestyle at a young age has reflected in my work as an adult. Nowadays I love yoga, hiking, running, art, and being a big sister! If I have one goal in my professional life it would be to inspire active living in today's youth. I completed my 450 hour pilates certification which compliments my teachings in every field due to the anatomical approach. Currently I work as a dance teacher, pilates instructor, yoga teacher and flexibility coach. My passion for movement will inspire you to achieve your goals. I love to make any positive difference to a client: in their day, in their body, in their out
look. I look forward to meeting you and reaching the finish line- whatever that may be!

I am enthusiastic about teaching online lessons as well. I find that online training works amazingly well, and is extremely convenient for people with busy schedules.

For Dance - Lindsay teaches ballet, social club, and basic hip hop and tap

Please inquire about rates for semi privates and group training.

Lindsay is wonderful. She really takes her time to understand what the client both wants out of their workout and needs out of their workout. I love how she always mixes it up and is not afraid to challenge me. Also she’s great in both private sessions and group sessions! Thanks Lindsay!

Lindsay put together mommy and me ballet lessons for my 2 year old and I. We looked forward to our lessons and she kept my daughter engaged and having fun the entire time. Over the course of a year, not only did we have a lot of fun doing ballet together, she actually learned a few basic steps and is comfortable with the rhythm of warming up, dancing, then cooling down. Having Lindsay live online was much better than a video because she interacted with Skye and could adjust the lesson to keep her involved. I enjoyed dancing with my daughter and getting a little stretch and workout in each time as well.

About Ron
To begin with let me say I am a martial arts instructor. I'm not a Yoga person, music teacher, actor or some other part timer and all of my reviews are from actual students who have taken classes with me in the martial arts and in various disciplines.

American Tai Chi and Qi Gong Association Certified Master Instructor
World Dragon Kenpo Karate
Grandmaster 8th Degree Back Belt
Tai Chi for Health Institute
Certified Trainer in multiple TCHI programs
Training available which can lead to Instructor Certification.

Ron has been actively teaching a diverse population of tai chi players since 2006 and has been involved in the martial arts as a student and instructor for over 40 years.
Ron also guides a group of local instructors, most who attend his lessons at Midwest Tai Chi Self Defense n Burlington Wisconsin regularly.


There are ongoing classes at the Kenosha Moose Lodge (Yang 24, Yang 32 Sword, TCBP, TCK,TCO, TCR, TCA Part 2 and Seated, TCE) and a Saturday morning TCA class at the Kenosha Senior Cente. Ron's ongoing relationship with the University of Wisconsin Parkside Kenosha is where he's involved in community outreach through the Mini Course program.

Master instructor Ron Pfeiffer has also been teaching Taiji Zen and the 13 Essential Forms for several years now and believes in the Beauty and Depth of this particularly powerful Tai Chi Chuan set developed by Jet Li in China.

Ron's journey into Health Fitness began in 1978 with various martial arts. In 2014, he was honored to be recognized through the International Sungjado Association for his over 35 years with a Doctor of Philosophy in Martial Science Degree.

All 30 to 60 minute lessons are designed for individual participants. Your goals are my guide.

I’ve been training with Master Ron for several months. As a 60 year old physician I’ve had many professors and mentors who have shaped my life. Ron has a spot right up there with the best of them. Great instructors are not just great communicators - it’s a given that they can explain what you need to know. What makes Ron different is he is a great listener - even better he listens with not just his ears but his eyes and his gut. He can tell when you are struggling even if you don’t realize it and gently guides you past it. He rejoices in your victories no matter how small and encourages you in your battles with certain moves. Although he is very gifted he is very humble. He is very Zen. He believes in living in the moment with what you are capable of now but always wants you to strive to improve. If you are looking for an instructor you can’t do better than Master Ron.

My experience with Ron Pfeiffer has been that he is an excellent teacher. I started in Beginner's Class at U.W. Parkside learning Tai Chi for Beginners' and later Tai Chi for Energy. He is friendly and yet detailed in his approach. He works with each student & improves their for forms. He has more Teaching Certificates than anyone I know and yet always goes back to the basics. I have earned two Teaching Certificates : Tai Chi for Energy and Tai Chi for Diabetes. I've worked to improve Yang 24 Form by attending classes in Burlington, WI. I talk classes weekly with Mr. Pfeiffer at the Moose Lodge & Senior Center in Kenosha, WI. I he is not available, classes go on with other Senior Students from his dojo in Burlington, WI. He is a teacher with a wealth of knowledge and I would recommend him to friends and family of all ages.

Nice to meet you!

I am a teacher of twelve years and I love what I do! I enjoy helping my students reach their goals while having fun along the way.

I am a versatile teacher with experience in many areas of dance, fitness, theater, character, circus, and more. I've taught all ages and levels, so anyone is welcome -especially beginners!

I am a dancer, performer, choreographer, teacher, model, and actor, so I am very familiar with the industry. I have choreographed, taught, and performed around the world, and enjoy sharing my knowledge with those who want to learn, get some good exercise, and have a good time.

I teach the following subjects:
-jazz dance
-hip hop/urban dance
-contemporary dance
-strength & conditioning
-stretching and flexibility
-dance fitness
-ballet dance
-burlesque dance
-musical theater dance
-modeling
-choreography

I am outgoing, friendly, and most importantly, I love what I do and I am passionate about sharing my experience with others who are eager to learn!

About Kate
I played at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater from 2004-2007. While there I played libero for one year and was a setter for the other three years. I was named All-Conference in 2006 and 2007 and I was named 2nd team All-American in 2007. My team won the Division III National Championship in 2005, we took 3rd place in 2006 and were runner's up in 2007. I continue to play in adult leagues and tournaments around the Madison area.

A typical session with me is 60 minutes long. I work with the athletes to perfect their fundamental volleyball skills. High quality repetitions, goal setting and intensive skill breakdown are incorporated into each lesson. I give my athletes simple tasks to focus on which they can integrate into their high school or club practices after they leave the lesson. I also utilize videography to analyze the athletes
movement patterns and give visual feedback to help them develop their skills more quickly. If requested I will add in agility and plyometric training as necessary.
