Ocarina:
An ancient wind musical instrument like a type of vessel flute, typically with four to twelve finger holes and a mouthpiece that projects from the body. It is traditionally made from clay or ceramic, but other materials are also use such as plastic, wood, glass, metal, or bone. The ocarina belongs to a very old family of instruments, believed to date back over 12,000 years. Ocarina-type instruments have been of particular importance in Chinese and Mesoamerican cultures. We will begin with learning finger placement, breathing, notes, reading, rhythms, and learn to play songs and even solo! A lot of fun!

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

I teach general piano lessons since 2010.With every new student our mutual journey into the world of music begins from the very basic stage; we begin with discussing student's proper sitting position at the instrument,basic introduction sessions on the general buildup of the instrument, its keyboard layout, and proceed, gradually, to the notation symbols on the music staff introduction to the student. Through the diligent preliminary talk we will discuss various aspects of interest that my students have developed in relation to playing piano, so we could plan and design our future lessons according to an initial discussion. My job and responsibility will be to make an intelligent assessment of my students' natural abilities for the given subject of study, to create vigorous learning atmosphere during our meetings, and to give my students professional instructions to the best of my humble abilities, for the benefits of their musical , aesthetic, and personal development.

Philip is an excellent teacher and gave me very heloful pointers on my technique. I am an advanced player and have performed semi-professionally several times but hadn't learned proper technique in the past.

I plan to continue with him regularly to improve my technique and skill level.
Kennadi S.
Philip was so friendly and patient, and made my 7 year old very comfortable with her first lesson. He really knew how to speak on her level and his instruction was very positive and motivating. My daughter left the lesson very excited to start practicing what he showed her, and we can't wait till the next lesson!

Very helpful person to work with, understanding of my student's transportation difficulties and great about rescheduling. The girl likes him and is learning.

I've been studying mathematics for 7+ years, and have tutored at the high school and undergraduate level. In the first class, we will discuss your goals and what you hope to take away from the classes, and customize a plan for your best interests. I specialize in theoretical computer science, combinatorics, graph theory, and discrete math, and typically either follow a textbook in a specific topic, or generate problems and exercises to work through with the student.

Specifically for students interested in classes in discrete mathematics, I roughly follow Concrete Mathematics by Graham, Knuth, and Patashnik, while also preparing exercises and problem sets for the session and as homework.

I try to design my sessions so that students learn what they like to learn, while also developing a foundation and mathematical maturity for higher levels. I love working with students of all ages and levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

"My son has been working with Mrs Marty for a month now and he has shown exceptional growth. He is a high functioning autistic boy who can be non verbal and jittery at time. Marty is patient with him and when they play the piano together it has become an outlet of expression for my son. I do not play and so I am so grateful to Marty for all the hard work she puts in to help my son find an avenue of expression. She puts together personalized binders that my son loves to have to sit at practice his “homework” lesson Marty gave him for the week. The binder has served as a wonderful point of reference for not only my son but for me to understand basic piano techniques so that I may also help my son and understand what he is learning. We would recommend Marty to anyone who has an interest in learning piano!"
