My name is Omar. I am a musician and a visual artist. I earned a Masters cert. in Songwriting and Guitar from Berklee College of Music. I have been playing guitar and recording music since childhood, am a classically trained sitar player and am currently studying Indian classical vocal. My favorite thing to do is share music with people, I love to discover new things about music, and no better way to do that then to meet new people who love music. As an artist I have been featured on the BBC, NBC, VOA, ARY, MTV and in Alt Press, Rollingstone, LA times, and much more. I am a great teacher for anyone who wants to learn to write songs, or is into Indie, rock, pop, reggae, metal, hip hop, and electronica. I have spent a lot of time developing as a vocalist, songwriter, composer and producer, which helps me in all aspects of my music and teaching, I'm always looking to learn more. I have played in really heavy bands, but have also done slow acoustic stuff, I produced raw hip hop but love old soul and ska tunes. Being well rounded musically and drawing from lots of influences is what makes me a good teacher and shapes me as a musician. I love to answer questions and learn things I don't know, I know a good amount about guitar repair, improvised instrument building, how to buy a good instrument and not spend to much, and I have a vast knowledge of obscure instruments, and audio production as well. Feel free to ask me questions, and expect informative non-judgmental answers.

"Ever since I could remember, I have always been in love with the guitar. I just always felt like it was an extension of who I am!" recalls Washington DC guitar and multi-string instrumentalist, Michelle. Michelle is a restless collaborator who is engaged in exploring and extending the boundaries of her instruments. Michelle's guitar playing is often described as incredibly creative and innovative. A FORCE OF NATURE. Her playing is visceral, with a expressionistic approach to creating timbre and velocities. Constantly discovering new sonorities on her guitar, she has created a uniquely personal language which speaks to audiences. "Michelle is the most engaging improvisor I have ever seen. No one is breaking boundaries and taking command of the guitaristic language like Michelle is, NOBODY. She is a percussionist on guitar, indeed she is the GUITAR'S RENAISSANCE" to quote Lydia Cummings Smith (independent improvised music critic) in 2002. Influenced at first by guitarist like Allan Holdsworth, Don Mock & B.B. King, Michelle found great inspiration in the highly charged expression of their music but has created a style all her own, an extended language. Michelle was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. Here she spent the early years of her life immersed in a community of musicians, break dancers, artists and poets. She started playing the guitar at the age of 5. It was rock music that got Michelle hooked on guitar "Rock & Pop guitarist were the biggest examples of guitar playing in my life at the time, they were the most visible and so I guess I just gravitated towards that. It wasn't until later that I started to wake up to all the other great guitar players out there playing other music that I actually liked more, like jazz and reggae. When I realized, really realized these players and their music it was like the whole world opened up for me. " In 1988 Michelle attended the Duke Ellington School for the Arts in Washington DC and studied jazz with DC guitar legend Tom Newman and Saxophone great Davey Yarbrough and in 1992 Michelle received what was at the time the second largest scholarship given to a conservatory student to attend Oberlin Conservatory in Oberlin OH. Here she studied with guitarist Bob Ferreza and jazz educators Jimmy Owens and the late Wendell Logan. Michelle moved to Brooklyn New York in 1995 where she expanded her musical career to include becoming a professional composer & sound designer as well as a DJ. After many concerts over the years, Michelle decided to assemble various groups of her own. These groups were instrumental in making Michelle more well-known. Her vast, poliedric repertoire is particularly oriented towards Global Bass.

My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do.
My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis.
I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.
I have been teaching music professionally now for over twenty years. Some students want to take a few lessons to see if it is something they will enjoy, others have worked with me for over a decade. I have mentored several students who have gone on to professional careers. I have experienced a lot of success teaching young children and those with special needs. I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of patience and truly enjoy teaching anyone who wants to learn.
Whatever your goals or abilities, I look forward to working with you!

My interest in music began when I was about 8 years old and learned to play the piano. A few years later, I joined the middle school band and fell in love with the trombone. I've played the trombone almost everyday for 17 years and I'm now a member of the prestigious US Air Force Band in Washington D.C.
I have a passion for teaching that is rarely matched. I love seeing the light bulb turn on when a student begins to understand specific concepts that unlock the next level of musicianship. This inspires me to keep inspiring the student! I'm one of the most patient teachers, not minding if a student is working hard but has trouble grasping something. I'll work through it many different ways until it clicks.
I taught freshman level music theory and ear-training at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music while getting my Masters Degree in music performance. I've also studied with teachers at Juilliard and have played under the baton of the most famous conductors of our time while I was a member of the New World Symphony Orchestra in Miami Beach, Florida.
