Gabriella's knowledge and experience as a life coach are surpassed only by her creativity as she makes it fun and easy to make her lessons meaningful and applicable in our daily lives. For me saying out loud to someone, this is what I want to do, started the process. Knowing that I had to be accountable motivated me. Gabriella suggested I set my goals incrementally; this is something I would have not done myself. As a result of this, I attained my goals and feel better about myself. Clearly, her enthusiasm is a testament to her commitment to helping others make healthier lifestyle changes.

I have been working with Jeanine for life coaching. My experience with her has been nothing less than fantastic. She is definitely pushing me to live out my aspirations and work through what is holding me back. I find Jeanine to be very encouraging and supportive. There is lots of structure with personalized lessons and homework. I wouldn't be able to make these life changes without her. I truly think that she is one of a kind!

I worked under Adam for about three years, and had a really great experience with him as my manager. I had worked in the industry for about seven years before joining Adam's team, and my experience with his company was the most organized and well thought out working environment I had, or have yet, to find myself in. As a superior, he was always receptive to feedback, which I find to be an invaluable quality in anyone that finds himself in a place of leadership or authority. He also has a knack for drawing out the important aspects of a situation, and the ones that can be left behind, which not only made him the perfect person to be directing a business, but also the perfect person to be consulting small businesses.

I have worked with Braco over the past seven years. He was my instructor for a Dale Carnegie and Institute of Advance Human Performance master classes. I also benefited greatly from taking advantage of one on one consulting. Braco directly impacted my professional development with public speaking, leadership, and continually pushing the limits of my comfort zone. He has impacted my personal development with tools to form better habits and increased emotional intelligence. I have seen a return on investment with my counseling and coaching from Braco that has led to promotions, deep and lasting professional relationships, and being an effective leader in my organization. -Paul M.

She allows the instrument to grow organically nurturing it with Love and a solid education. She isn't only an exemplary teacher and Artist, she is a beautiful woman with a Blessed heart. Simply being around her can change your entire day.

    I attended a Tai Chi lecture. Usually lectures are boring drawnout and the presenter gives too much information, but Markus made everything simple, and all the content was usable. I decided to connect with him to take private lessons and six months later I'm a very happy customer.

    Since starting coaching with Louzia, I have never felt more focused, more confident, or more joyful. Coaching has empowered me to take my business and my life in a whole new direction.

I have a relationship with a woman I love, I have renewed my dedication to fitness, and I have developed two new sources of revenue for my business. I can’t recommend Louiza highly enough. -John Thomas, Management Consultant

    Learn the music you love! I offer piano lessons for beginners through advanced. I teach all ages. I offer traditional teaching with the reading of the main two clefs (bass and treble), music theory, immediate approach to the keyboard, immediate exercise that develop the presence of your fingers in the keyboard as well as the strength and speed of your fingers. Start to play your favorite music from the very first lesson! Learning piano includes the following: * ear training * sight reading * music harmony * improvisational skills * knowledge of music history * counterpoint * technical mastery (note by note passage at every speed, octaves, double thirds, trills, arpeggios, scales, etc.) Technical mastery is not limited to the above. I also offer mastery of touch (how to approach the keyboard for a legato, articulate touch and semi-legato) and mastery of phrasing. The music phrase is different, depending on the composer and the period when the music was composed. I have complete command of knowledge from Bach to Broadway songs. Piano lessons are available also in a more easy-going way of learning which is reading only with the treble clef with the complete understanding of the chord symbols. This style of learning is definitely for jazz standards, Broadway and pop music. I offer singing lessons or vocal coaching for pop singers. The philosophy of my teaching here is based on the music that you want to learn. I don't do yoga lessons or relaxation lessons. I do start from the music. From the phrasing, you'll know where to breath. From the music, you'll know what kind of voice timbre to use (you don't sing a Broadway aria like a Beatles song). From the music, you'll learn the text by memory, understanding what kind of expression to use according to the meaning of the text itself. Warming up of the voice is essential for successful learning. I resume it in two essential points which are as follows: * Knowledge of your vocal range without trying to stretch where your voice can't arrive and will never arrive (find the beauty of your real voice) * Blending of lower middle and high range I offer performance opportunities for the most talented. I also offer vocal coaching for classical and opera singers. Identify from the beginning the timbre of your voice as well as your voice range. Some unlucky students have been convinced to belong to a voice range that is not theirs! I have been dealing with more than one case with singers that think to be a mezzo, but instead, they would be making a great career as alto! Once you know with certainty and confidence what is your range and timbre, you can direct your energy to the right kind of repertoire. This is very important especially for those who want to pursue singing at a professional level. You don't need to waste your time, money and energy in the wrong repertoire. For example, if you are a soprano leggero, you don't want to sing R.Wagner or G.Verdi. Other important aspects to consider include the following: * Enlarging your voice range in order to get your instrument more complete without forcing your voice and breathing according to the music phrase * Pitch control without the use of too much vibrato (I am not against it, but I am when the vibrato compromises the pitch.) * Clarity in the speed * Projection of your voice (The projection of your voice might sound great in the music studio, but would that be the same if you sing at the met?)


    Experience in 15 countries across many business sectors and ranging from new hires to CEOs and all C level personnel. This diversity helps me help clients. In addition I have been an operations executive who has been coached by others.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    What is a career coach?

    If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

    • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
    • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
    • Defining your career goals
    • Creating a plan for job searching
    • Improving networking strategies and skills
    • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
    • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
    • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

    Why is career counseling important?

    Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

    • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
    • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
    • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
    • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
    • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
    • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
    • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

    How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

    When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

    What is a career counselor?

    If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

    Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.
