  • Aaron Evans Piano Instruction
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I am really good at adapting my teaching style to match a student's learning ability. This allows me to create an individualized lesson plan for every student with measurable results. Playing the piano is a valuable life skill and I believe everybody can learn. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? Students are required to purchase lessons books, an assignment notebook, and ideally a metronome. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I've had a passion for music for as long as I can remember, and think it is important to share this passion with others. Mastering the piano can take years, and my proudest moments with students are when I'm teaching a lesson and my student has a self realization of a breakthrough. Its amazing! What do you love most about your job? I love helping people develop their skills, and take great satisfaction in helping them realize their potential. Music has an immense power to heal, and sharing my talent with others is the most gratifying thing I could ever do.

  • Christal Cerrone GLASS DESIGNS
    While working as an art teacher at a public school in St. Louis, Glass Class's owner, Christal Cerrone, began her journey into the world of glass by repairing the stained-glass windows of local theaters and historic buildings. A move to San Francisco presented Christal with the opportunity to further hone her skills, and she began to create stained-glass windows for homes, memorials, and tricked-out family station wagons. Twenty-three years later, with work featured on HGTV's That's Clever!, the art educator in Christal still shines through as she teaches kids and adults to make their own masterpieces with materials including dichroic glass and metals. The custom creations that emerge from Christal's studio can be both decorative and functional. Classes include all required materials for possible projects, such as necklaces, lamps, or life-size replicas of the Louvre pyramid. In addition to classes, a lineup of camps for kids aged 9 and older help youngsters to master diamond tools and work with glass.

  • North Carolina Central University Athletics
    "While a sparrow clings to its flock, an eagle soars alone." Those were the words of North Carolina Central University founder Dr. James E. Shepherd, who each year rallied the student body with an inspirational toast to the school's majestic mascot. Today, the noble Eagle's eye watches over the historically black university's 16 men's and women's athletic teams, many of whom have soared throughout the years. The Eagles have claimed 43 conference championships—not all with its current conference, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference—to go along with three NCAA regional titles and two national titles. The school's athletic prowess has even reached the international stage: Eagles appeared in six consecutive Olympics from 1956 to 1976 and won five gold medals, which back then were actual gold medals—not the foil-wrapped protein bars they give out today.

  • Arthur Murray Dance Studio
    Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
