About Aaron and Cintya

Our Mission

We create joy by connecting our students to their best skills. 

We love teaching music, math, science, and languages.  Our enthusiasm comes from our genuine enjoyment of all the subjects that we  teach.  Expect to get a dose of that joy as you gain competence and confidence.

our Core values

  • Fun is vital to learning.

Fun and enjoyment are the magic ingredients to learning.  If we don’t get the instrument out of its case, or open the book, nothing else matters.  The enjoyment that keeps us coming back for more is the number one factor in our success at anything. 

  • There are no mistakes.
When we learn most effectively, we take risks and make “mistakes.”  Actually, it’s not even correct to call them “mistakes,” since there is no shame or regret, and these imperfections are expected if we are practicing and learning effectively. 
 
  • Teach to the whole person.

We show up as a complete person every day, as both teachers and students. We don’t exist in a vacuum.  A parrot can’t survive in the arctic, and a polar bear can’t survive in the rainforest.  It’s important to acknowledge the interconnectedness of everything in a person’s life.  All our skills, experiences, and humanity enter into everything we do.
