About Emily

Hello all! I am Emily F., a recent graduate of Grove City College with a degree in Music Education. While in school I majored in Percussion and Voice and spent the majority of my time performing and gaining experience. I am currently an elementary music teacher with Prince George's County Schools. I have had years of lessons myself and have taught many students as well. As a vocalist, I can teach you how to sing anything from Top 40 hits to Broadway numbers to Operatic Arias. I will help you gain confidence as a performer and vocal strength. I am also prepared to teach beginning piano lessons to help you learn to accompany yourself and others. For percussion lessons, I have years of experience as a principal percussionist in my College's band and orchestra and would love to help ...

I started taking marimba lessons from Emily several months, but due to various work related and health issues, I've had to frequently change my schedule with her. I have appreciated her flexibility in working with me and has always responded in a timely manner. She has shown great patience and is a good teacher. She loves what she's doing and that is a great asset in teaching. Most of all, she is a very nice person.

I have been taking piano lessons with Emily for almost a year, and have had a very good experience. Her teaching style is "laid back" and patient, but she does emphasize accuracy in technique. (This was a factor I was looking for in a piano teacher.) I took lessons as a child, but had not touched the piano since then. In the past year, I feel I have made significant progress.

Personally, Emily seems to be a dedicated profession (she is also a nice person to work with.) She has consistently responded to e-mails, texts, etc. in a timely manner.

Emily was super helpful. She worked really well with me, even when I was a little nervous. She's such a bubbly and positive person, and I looked forward to every lesson i had with her. She worked with me and all my scheduling issues, and was very understanding. I really enjoyed her teaching style, she was very relaxed and made me feel a lot more comfortable singing. Overall I really thing I've improved over these past few months and I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with Emily!

My name is Aneka and my 10 year old son Caleb is a recent student of Rodrigo. Caleb only started playing the clarinet in May 2014. He has made tremendous strides in such a short time. Rodrigo is a very patient, encouraging, and supportive teacher. Caleb is already able to identify and play several notes and some songs. It has made him very confident about his playing. I am pleased with our experience and look forward to Caleb continuing lessons with Rodrigo.

great clarinet teacher

Rodrigo has ben my clarinet teacher for a year now. I am an adult learner who started with limited musical background and no prior knowledge of the clarinet. Rodrigo has been a very knowledgeable and dependable guide who has a positive outlook and an easy-going, flexible style. I have great respect for his expertise.
As a teacher myself, I understand the value of an organized approach. His lessons are purposeful and goal-directed. His praise is well-placed and specific, but he does not hesitate to point out areas I need to work on. His "pointing out" most often involves actual examples. I have difficulty transitioning between some fingerings. Rodrigo never tires of showing me how to improve my fingering technique to make it more efficient. Then--and this is important--he listens/watches to make sure I am following through correctly. If not . . . we go through it . . . again. In this manner, he has helped me expand my "comfort zone" with my instrument. He has a wealth of patience.
Try as I might, he doesn't let me get away with much. I have always been a master at avoiding things. This characteristic extends beyond the usual everyday chores to my clarinet practice. My clarinet book contains some pieces that require extra effort for me to work through. It is amazing how often I miss these pieces entirely. Rodrigo never misses them. Over time he must have evolved specific "radar" to identify them. He makes sure I at least give them a good try. Little by little, this helps me improve. He does keep things varied and is quick to make a change--in book or approach--if necessary.
I am pleased with the progress I have made. When I first started, I had no idea the scope of my undertaking. Rodrigo has helped make the journey enjoyable. More often than not, when I leave my lesson, I have a renewed enthusiasm and a desire to try just a bit harder in my next practice.
Rodrigo seems to love what he does--and I would say he does it well. I am fortunate to have him as my teacher.

About Austin

Music is something that everyone can share and express themselves through, and i want to help everyone to find that avenue of expression! I studied drums at the Drummers Collective in New York City, where i studied several genres of music. I play everything from rock, jazz, soul, R&B, Caribbean, and Latin music. If a student is interested in a certain style of music i would be happy to dive into that further, or explore other genres that may peek interest. The difference between me and many other teachers is that i genuinely love teaching and watching my students grow as players and musicians.

About Nii Akwei

I have been a musician for the past 19 years. I've been professionally making music for ten of those years.

*** Lesson Details ***

My lessons are designed around the goals of each student; the first lesson is the exploration of those goals and the formulation of your specific lesson plan. Additionally, in the first lesson, I will assess your current skill level in the lesson subject.

Lessons include instruction in music theory, ear training, and music history as necessary to achieve the goals of each student. Weekly scales, exercises and other practice targets will be assigned as necessary. It is strongly encouraged that each student keep a notebook to keep track of what is to be worked on.

About Joshua

I am a recent graduate of the University of Maryland, majoring in Criminal Justice. I am looking primarily for violin students, but am more than happy to assist with English tutoring as well (I scored a 730 on the writing section of the SAT and a 680 on the Reading section). I have played violin for approximately 16-17 years and was a member of the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra from 8th-12th grade, eventually touring Vienna and Prague with the orchestra in Summer 2009. I have taught private lessons for the past two summers and have previously worked with children as a camp counselor. I look forward to tutoring your child and helping them realize their full potential! Josh

My granddaughter is learning a lot from this fellow and is enthralled with him, She is progressing with her violin quickly and plays her instrument very much. He has her progressing beyond where I thought she would be, having only been playing for a few months and I believe she will keep at it with him as her instructor!
