Murray P. Baltimore, MD

About Murray

My musical career started at age 3 when my parents placed a pair of drum sticks in my hands. I started playing drums in church and then progressed to play in middle school where I was part of the jazz band and orchestra. With some very early lessons, I begin to blossom into a skillful drummer. I then continued to play in bands in high school and, in addition, became a member of the Milford Mill Academy Marching Band. In my sophomore year, I became the section leader of the drum line where I played & mastered the snare drum. I have 2 degrees in music theory from Deer Park Magnet school and Morgan State University. I have performed with many bands from all different musical genres such as gospel, funk, pop, jazz, blues, rock, Latin, reggae, and R&B. In 2004 I became the only ...

One of many words to describe Murray, AWESOMENESS! Meeting Murray and learning under his instructions has brought a bigger meaning to playing the drums. His love of drums and music shows in how he teaches his students. He never criticizes your mistakes and works along side of you, teaching you, until you learn and understand it all. He is very patient, professional and the best drummer I have ever met. I am truly blessed to have him as an instructor and look forward to many years of his teachings. Not enough stars in the world to rate him!!!!!

A rare gem!

I am blown away every week with how engaged and enthused my 7 year old is while under Murray's instruction. His style and technique are clearly adapted to the benefit of the individual student and his professionalism is a breath of fresh air. My child is having so much fun and is thriving in his drumming lesson. We recommend Mr Piper 150 % !
Benjamin P. Parkville, MD

About Benjamin

I discovered music sifting through my Dad's record collection and soon decided that I wanted to play guitar. As a teenager I began taking lessons and building confidence in my abilities. I played in different types of bands ranging from rock, country, blues, and jazz. After completing College in 2004, I realized music was not just going to be a hobby, but a career. At age 33, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for the last nine years. I believe that anybody can learn to play as long as they are patient and understand that anything worthwhile takes time and sustained effort to achieve. You also need a good teacher who understands how to take you where you want to go musically. I have taught hundreds of different students of all ages and abilities. I have ...

About Dorothy

I am a violin and viola teacher born and raised in the Baltimore area. I have been teaching private lessons and group classes for the last eight years and studied both performance and pedagogy at some of the best music schools in the country. I most recently completed a Graduate Performance Diploma at Peabody Conservatory, where I also studied pedagogy under Rebecca Henry and Janet Melnicoff-Brown of the Peabody Preparatory. While the majority of my teacher training and professional work has been on the violin, I am a violist at heart. I teach students ages 3 to adult at my home studio in Mount Vernon, and I enjoy working with students who have all different levels of ability and commitment. Everyone is welcome.

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.

Thank you for what you have done for Mechelle so far. She enjoys coming to lessons and feels very comfortable working with you. And it's nice to know that she's getting the attention and help that she needs to be successful in learning the viola.

About Belinda

*** Lesson Details ***
NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the ...

Excellent teacher!

From the very first lesson, my daughter felt that she was learning a great deal from Belinda. Belinda cares about her students and is good with different styles of singing. She's always very professional, but fun at the same time.

*** Lesson Details ***
During the first lesson, I will discuss with the student about their personal goal. I would like to see what the students have been working on and I will suggest materials that will help the students to develop their musicianship.
My lessons are usually pretty laid back. However, I do expect student to come with some preparation.
I believe that strong foundation is very important for young ...

Grace Is Tops!

By the end of May, I will have been working with Grace for six months. During that time, I have learned so much! I now feel I understand how to attack a new piano piece, and I am slowly gaining skill in executing it. My love for the instrument has simply skyrocketed!

Grace has an amazing skill set. Not only does she possess expert knowledge of the piano, but she exhibits that unique ability to convey her knowledge to others, in a straightforward, engaging, and often humorous manner.

Each lesson fires me to learn more and more, and I am very happy with the results!

Sean M. Baltimore, MD

About Sean

Hi! I'm Sean. I love music and one of my goals in life is to share my love of music with everyone else, in a number of different ways. I'm a senior Music Composition major at UMBC and my primary instrument is guitar. I play a wide range of styles - fingerstyle, classical, rock, jazz, metal, and just about everything in between! My goal is to go to graduate school and become a composer, either in freelance or work in academia. I'm teaching guitar privately to get more teaching experience before I hit the classroom!

I strive to have all of my students become balanced musicians. If reading or theory is a soft spot, we'll apply your strengths and catch up quickly. I also think that being interested in the music that you're playing is incredibly important ...

Great first lesson. High hopes for follow lessons.

I self-taught myself guitar over 35 years ago; mostly forgotten. Sean began with establishing goals that would meet my goals. The feedback to me during the lessons was focused and delivered in a friendly manner. Progression was enhanced due to his manner and his approach to teaching. While this was the first lesson, I am looking forward to future lessons.
