Justin P. Fairfax, VA

About Justin

I understand that there are many desires a pupil can have about learning music, especially towards the practicality of the modern world and I hope to gear the student towards that. I have worked with children for almost a decade so I am comfortable with youth education. My experience with working with children is mostly with the Boy Scouts of America since I was 14. From teaching scouts about nature, to directing shooting ranges as an NRA Rifle Safety Officer, to eventually managing a camp. As a young adult who has just finished their music degree from collage and working to further my education, I can understand the process of learning a musical instrument and guide the student on a smoother path to their goals.

Justin is a natural teacher!!

I had a great experience learning under Justin's guidance. He really took the time to learn how much understanding I had of my instrument before he started teaching, so he knew exactly what I needed more work on. I can see he definitely tailors lessons for each individual student's needs. He was patient and introduced new ways of learning that really helped me grasp the material. Although he sticks to a general lesson-plan for each session, he gave me plenty of freedom to play around and jam. I would recommend him to anybody, and have already referred him to some friends. If you're looking for a professional, yet fun and relaxed teacher, you've found him!

About Mike

I have played bluegrass banjo since I was 16 (I€™m now looking at Social Security). I€™ve been instructing for four years €“ since semi-retiring from my day job. I use various teaching methods and aids and have participated in training programs with the finest banjo players in the country, including Sonny Osborne, Bill Emerson, Tony Trischka, Ned Luberecki, Pete Wernick, Jim Mills, Bill Evans, Charlie Cushman and Alan Munde.

My banjo philosophy is that while we may aspire to play banjo like Earl Scruggs, it is not necessary to be at that level to enjoy playing bluegrass music. The organic simplicity of bluegrass songs, the repetition of components, and the strong melody lines makes entry level playing fun and rewarding and within the reach of anyone ...

Mike is truly a patient, excellent teacher & communicator. He totally understands my needs and limitations, and always finds a way to address them and thereby helps me move forward. I am absolutely confident that in the very near future I will be able to play the banjo and be able to jam with others - and I attribute all of that to Mike and his approach. My only regret is that I didn't meet him 17 years ago when I first moved to the area and decided to learn to play the banjo. I wholeheartedly recommend him for anyone - he loves to play and he loves to teach.

Banjo
Best Banjo player!

I'm new to the banjo, having spent most of my life playing the guitar, acoustic, of course. I'd met Mike at a jam and was very impressed by his abilities. I was surprised to learn that we lived near each other, and I was in touch with him when I returned home. I started lessons with Mike and am now playing much better, due to his help. He's very patient, taking the time to show me not only how to play better, but also how to play with others in a "group" situation. I will continue to take lessons until
I'm as good as he is!
Megan A. Fairfax, VA

About Megan

I grew up on Long Island New York and am currently studying music education at George Mason University. I have been playing flute for 12 years now and it's time I share my experience and love for music with others!

To me, music is an outlet and it's important that my students fall in love with music while also learning about it.

A typical lesson with me will be structured like this:
Emphasis on basics (scales, studies, tuning, etc)
Sight Reading and Ear Training
Learning techniques through pieces

I had a lot of bad habits that developed over years I didn't have proper teachers, it will always be my goal to make sure this isn't the case with my students. Playing music should be fun, never too hard or painful. I will put ...

Megan has been a colleague and musical partner of mine for over 7 years. Megan has a unique ability to positively connect with her students at all age and skill levels.

As a truly talented Flautist, Megan will provide you with a wealth of knowledge and expertise on playing flute. I've had the pleasure of performing as well as teaching with Megan and she is a valuable asset to any Music program.

If you're looking for a private teacher who will teach you the fundamentals of music, while also making lessons fun and enjoyable, then Megan is certainly the right instructor for you.

Layla has truly been a helpful tutor. I tend to struggle in classroom environments where the teacher can't always attend to my needs with so many students, so I decided to get a tutor. Layla has experience in teaching and so I decided to give her a try. Her methods are effective and have helped my improve already in such little time. She is not only helpful during our tutoring sessions, but also maintains dialogue in-between sessions, which is also very helpful. I would strongly recommend her as a tutor. She's amazing!

Layla is a wonderful tutor. Her teaching methods are very helpful and have helped me improve my English. It's sometimes hard for me to learn in a classroom environment, so her one-on-one teaching methods are very productive. I definitely recommend her as a tutor!

Professional, patient, and pleasant!

Alan has been my 15-year-old son's drum instructor for five years now, and in that time, my son has progressed from being a complete novice to drumming in a very decent teen band. With Alan, you get solid teaching skills, a pleasant personality, and great flexibility in arranging lessons. We love the fact that he provides instruction in our home--one less runaround for us! Alan is a musician who knows how to teach and inspire, and we recommend him without reservation.

Excellent instructor

I've been studying with Alan for more than a year. He is an excellent, reliable teacher and an outstanding drummer. His lessons are clear and concise. His communication skills are excellent. Also, I'm very happy with the syllabus he has put together for me, as we use a variety of instruction books. I feel like there's a definite path towards improvement. You won't be disappointed if Alan is your teacher...

Alan is a great drum teacher

Alan teaches my 15 year old son drums. He is a real professional player and teacher. I cannot believe how much my son has learned in his first 6 months! Alan is patient but also holds my son accountable by not giving him a pass if something is not right. He is a pleasant man too - always smiling. I highly recommend him.

About Samuel

Hello, I'm Sam, and I've been playing the viola for 13 years, and teaching for a total of 4-5 years. I'm a recent graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, but I'm a native born South Dakotan. I'll tell you a little bit about myself as a teacher.

I love sharing what I've learned with students, and I'm particularly interested in teaching students what they want to work on, but also giving them the tools that they need to succeed. I teach from either a traditional standpoint, or from Suzuki books in order to teach technical facility.

I don't provide instruments or the accessories that go along with it, so please be prepared to have those things. I'll also provide a list of music that you should order after our first lesson. ...
