What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I love to help others play music and find their inner rhythm!
Percussion instruments have a profound affect on me...that's what led me to start selling and playing all the instruments in my shop, including 15 quartz crystal singing bowls, large gongs from the far east, didgeridoo, flutes....etc!
What do you love most about your job?
I love to share my excitement for music with my customers. When someone walks in the door and wants to know about all the exotic instruments I sell, I really enjoy sharing that expereince with them.
In 2012, the Runaway Circus struck upon a brilliant idea—find an unused studio space to fix up and turn into a community art center dedicated to teaching and practicing acrobatics, juggling, comedy, and highly physical performance art. That dream became the Toy Boat Community Art Space, which today provides a home base for such acts as the jugglers Forty Fingers and a Missing Tooth and the mysterious Wendal Wandell, who conjures waves of applause with his feats of legerdemain. Those without a big-top passion project to work on at the gym-cum-art studio can participate in other upcoming events involving folk music acts, DJ sessions, goofy plays for young and old, and unpredictable comedy shows.
The mixologists at ABC Bartending School divulge saloon secrets during certification-based and recreational bartending classes. During two-week certification courses, burgeoning bartenders mix classic and popular drinks while learning about alcohol laws, responsible liquor service, and stocking and inventory. Alternatively, an entertaining mixology course lets amateurs shake up drinks and take cover from projectile champagne corks behind an ornate bar with mirrors and gold trim. Once finished imparting their knowledge, the instructors set students up with ABC’s job-placement program, which puts certified graduates to work everywhere from restaurants and nightclubs to the zero-G sports bar where astronauts celebrate successful trips to the moon.
After graduating from Harvard Graduate School of Design and working as an architect for a decade, Ofri Gilan decided to embrace her true passion—cooking homemade meals using healthy, fresh ingredients. At Ofri's Home Cooking, she prepares meals for busy families based on their nutrition needs and food preferences. She specializes in cooking for people on medically restrictive diets, including those with diabetes or heart problems.
Ofri also passes her skills on to others during healthy cooking classes. These unfold in a comfortable home overlooking the Smokey Mountains. Some classes even take place on the outdoor deck when it's nice outside and the neighboring restaurants' spy birds have clocked out for the day.
Kids Clubs, led by a former first-grade teacher, warms youngsters to the idea of learning through fun, highly interactive classes targeted at building specific skills, from reading comprehension to public interaction. Craft clubs and Lego-building classes inspire creativity and show students how to accomplish goals through projects. Other classes help students accurately complete their homework and combine elements of literature and theater to strengthen reading comprehension. Even babies can exercise their brains during sessions that strive to improve their motor skills and prepare them to ace the bar exam.
