*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz

About Leo
Hello! I'm Leo, and I will be your prospective tutor for today. I am a New School alum in the literary studies program, with a specialization in fiction writing. Most of my teaching experience stems from a martial arts background (specifically taekwondo, Muay Thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu) , where I taught students ranging from 4-60 years old. I also have experience teaching people how to type, how to improve their reading and writing skills, stage presence, public speaking, self defense, and physical health. I look forward to meeting all of you while helping with whatever you need help with.

I love that Master Ron says that my clunky awkward Tai Chi isn't wrong - its just my Tai Chi. And my Tai Chi in 3 months may be better or worse than my Tai Chi today - but it's still my Tai Chi.

I have been a student of Ron's since 2011. I am learning both Kenpo Karate and Tai Chi. Ron is very knowledgeable in both venues and is passionate about the health aspects of each. He is a great teacher - caring and disciplined.

I am a new student and Ron Pfeiffer is my instructor.

I am so excited that I made the decision to join.

I joined because I wanted to learn how to reduce chronic pain without the use of opioids. I highly recommend that everyone learn about the healing benefits of Tai Chi & Qigong.

Ron is very passionate about helping everyone enhance their overall well-being. All the other students are warm and engaging. Great environment ; no judgement.

There are other Tai Chi Studios but only one Ron Pfeiffer. Why settle for the rest when you can experience the very best at Midwest Tai Chi.

In the past I experienced Tai Chi by someone in another state whom was not Certified and didn't know what they were doing. It was not a good experience for me. Stay away from people whom are not certified and properly trained!

Which is why I praise Ron because he is professional, certified and his training has impacted my health very positively. I am learning about proper balance, deep breathing techniques, mindfulness, clarity and focus. My sleep is also improving. Which is an added benefit that will help me to continue to heal.

About Lynn
The horse crazy bug is a lifestyle, not a phase, and everyone should have the opportunity to learn about horses! If you are new to horses and want to learn how to work around them safely, or have been riding for years, this program is for you!

Are you tired of riding in your backyard with no one to guide you? Does your pony keeps doing that "one thing" that stands between you and your goals? Is your trainer dismissive and discipline focused, but not addressing daily problems at the root? Let me take a look! I have evaluated riders from all over the world using live video, rider photos, or in person as a professional instructor for over 22 years. I will give you information on where you are sore and why and where your horse may have issues based on kinesiology and physical interactions with the horse.

After graduating basic trainin
g, you will understand how and why your horse responds to you, and how to effectively communicate with them.

As an online student, you are entitled to send one video up to 30 minutes in length of you riding for recorded critique, or photographs which will pinpoint position adjustments for your comfort and enjoyment of the sport. You will learn in a flipped classroom via instructor videos, required readings, review quizzes, live chat with Power Point presentations, and take home exercises and lessons to execute while mounted and on the ground. If you choose to record or photograph these take home lessons, you may send them to me and I will critique them for your review.

This program ensures a solid foundation for riding in any discipline, and even helps parents of horse crazy kids in being around the stable.
