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!

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.

Daniel was very patient with me with our first lessons. I would highly reccomend daniel to anyone who likes a teacher who will patiently guide them to become a better singer and person.

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.

Marty was everything we were looking for in a piano instructor. Her background is highly skilled. She teaches all levels and we are beginners. My daughter also wanted voice lessons in accompaniment so we can have Marty help with both as she also teaches voice. Highly recommend her.

I was so nervous before my first lesson. Marty went above and beyond to put me at ease and made me feel excited and hopeful about my skill set. I chose her because of what other people had said and they were all right. You won't regret working with her.

All my life I have loved the art of making beautiful letters. Since 1994, as interest has arisen, I have taught beginners to move from fledgling efforts... to making letters look artfully beautiful. A student can select the lettering styles they want to use. I provide a calligraphy pen with archival, acid-free ink. Bring nothing but your enthusiasm to the first class!

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

I have been practicing Calligraphy in a lot of western styles and Eastern from Copperplate to Blackletter to all sorts of Arabic Diwany, Naskh, Riq3a and A lot of Chinese and Japanese Brush styles. I can teach you the rules and provide you with ways to practice the letters.

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 :)
