Excellent instructor. Patient and personable with children and new learners.
Chris
Jerry is the greatest, with a particularly wonderful way of inspiring children with a fun and humorous spirit, alleviating anxiety, while promoting them to learn skills both concretely and even abstractly. Finding him on here, and experiencing his giftedness in teaching my nine-year-old daughter was a godsend. I couldn't recommend him more highly!

I have been teaching dance for over 10 years. In that time I have found that, regardless of what style you are learning, everything is made of a few fundamental principals and components specific to that style. There are only so many ways you can move your feet and body. By understanding these principals & components, you can then put them together in any order with different style to create different dances. By laying the proper foundation, students have an easier time following choreography, learning to apply their own style, and even keeping up with a class. Once a dancer has a foundation to work up on, I introduce new concepts in layers to help dances feel better and develop a nicer aesthetic.

About Sasha

I am trained in various styles including ballroom, ballet, bellydance, hip hop and aerial arts (aerial silk, hoop and pole).

Saxophone is my first instrument. I have soprano, alto and tenor saxophones and am especially partial to the tenor.

About Hayes

I've played sax for 27 years, bass for 22, and taught many students and performed with a variety of acts. I studied music and education at Kent State University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in 2006. Musical instruction is therapeutic for some, for for others it can be a journey to some destination

Hayes is super helpful and encouraging. I walked in feeling a little intimidated because I haven't really played in 30 years. He made me feel very comfortable and motivated. Good first lesson.
George
As a middle-aged guy who has played drums all my life, I wanted to add the bass guitar to my repertoire. Hayes is exactly the right guy and was able to show me how to get off to a quick start and then be able to add to my skills as I keep playing. I would recommend him highly!

Esther is amazing! My daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Jacey
Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

"Coach Siddharth has been a colleague of mine and a chess coach in great standing at Silver Knights Enrichment for the past few years; during this time I have had the privileged of co-coaching groups of young chess enthusiasts with him on numerous occasions and have been continually appreciative of Siddharth's ability to effectively impart his vast knowledge of chess concepts and principles to young students. In addition to his enthusiasm for teaching, he also has a patient demeanor and a wonderful way with kids. Recently I was pleased to learn that one of Siddharth's private students participated in his first scholastic chess tournament and won First Place in his division! Bravo coach!"

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

I will admit to you, the reader, that most of the articles I have written thus far assume that the reader is already a fairly avid chess player, who is aware of the basic rules of chess and thus is interested in learning more advanced strategies, traps, and tricks with the goal of decisively defeating the opponent. But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …
