THE TEACHING ARTISTS

Meet the creative people who have come together to Keep Kids Inspired.

 

Mr. D (aka Stephen Duffy)

FOUNDER

Meet the creator, founder and inspiration of Mr. D's Music Club, Stephen Duffy. Mr. D tapped into the love and inspiration of music at an early age (7 and certain stardom would hit at 9). Only as an adult and well into parenthood did he fully realize the value of music in a child's life. Not only is Mr. D an accomplished singer/songwriter, he is, more importantly, a valued educator and mentor. He inspires the students he teaches to create an eclectic playlist in life that isn't always obvious. As a mentor to young Teaching Artists he always maintains the most important mantra: Make.It.FUN!

"Mr. D literally gives everything he has to his students and classes, and is cherished by my entire family. I suggest signing up for some of his VERY affordable online summer classes before they fill up."

Kay Sibal

The Musical & Acting Spaces

Though Kay was raised in a choir surrounded by classical piano and voice training, she has always had a passion for pop music as well. In high school she dove into musical theater and now pursues a BA in Theater at UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

 

Kay works with kids every summer, whether it be assisting the acting program at Piedmont High School, working as a counselor and teacher at Mr. D’s Music Club, or teaching private music lessons in guitar, piano, and voice to students in the area.

"2 thumbs up for Kay and her Musical Theater class.... my daughter thought she was awesome!"

Julia Ribas

The Musical, Acting &

Singing Spaces

Julia Ribas is a junior at UCLA’s school of Theatre, Film and Television in the Ray Bolger Musical Theatre Program. She has been involved in acting, singing, and dancing for as long as she can remember. Aside from her passion for music, she also loves to travel, watch movies, and ski with her family. Originally from the Seattle area, Julia misses the California sunshine as she’s quarantined back home. However, she’s so excited to teach with Mr. D’s Music Club this summer, because her students always brighten up her day—even when it’s raining outside!

Quincy Kosena

The Movement Space

A Montana native living in Seattle, Quincy has loved dancing and letting loose for as long as she can remember. She was first captivated by the OULA spirit in 2012 and has been hooked ever since. (Give it a google if you’re curious!) Like many kids, Quincy was labeled early on as a “free spirit” and she was really drawn to the open, laidback nature of OULA. She believes deeply in the importance of moving emotions through the body, not just for kiddos, but for everyone - regardless of age! Mr. D’s philosophy is so inspiring and right in line with that of OULA: it’s not about how it looks, just about how it feels!

This (Covid) summer online program was really well organized, and thoughtfully put together - my daughter came away from every class energized and excited for the next session! Mr D and his artists have an energy for music, performing and teaching kids that is really special. Even by remote, they still find a way to meet kids where they are, and build a safe and supportive creative place for them to grow.

Dear Mr D. Our son, C. is really enjoying your classes and we definitely feel like we’ve stumbled into something really special!
