About Thomas

My musical life began during the "folk boom" of the 1960's. I began songwriting and performing during my high school years. Later I was a member of a folk-rock band called The Bean Angels. We preformed and recorded in the Iowa City, Iowa area. Later I attended Montana State University where I studied music education. My training included: piano skills, music theory, music history, aural perception, conducting, and vocal pedagogy. I have several decades experience in teaching. I have taught guitar, piano, voice, and ukulele, and have directed a children's choir.

I've been taking ukulele lessons from Tom for about 2 months and have just added voice lessons. Tom is a very thoughtful, kind man. He has a great deal of knowledge about the theoretical and practical/performance aspects of instruction. He is also excellent at adapting his lessons to my own particular goals. What more could you want!

About Jessica

Jessica moved to the Chevy Chase/Bethesda area in 2009, having grown up and gone to school in New York and Ohio. She loves the area, and she and her husband are thrilled to be putting down roots in the community. As a performer, Jessica has traveled around the world, but throughout her career teaching has been one of her most important focuses. "As a relative newcomer to the DC area, growing my private studio has been a great way to get involved in the community. My teaching style is individualized, but I always try to include two important things: building a strong basic skill set, and developing creativity."

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Ayanna is the best!!! She is a beautiful singer herself, and she is the perfect match for my daughter. She is never critical, always positive, and so good at pointing out ways to make the songs special. She also works with vocal exercises that are fun. We have tried other voice teachers, and nobody comes close.

About Jeff

Hi, I’m Jeff and I have been playing the drums for over 40 years and an instructor for the past 10 years. I began my teaching career at The School of Rock where I spent one (1) year helping the drum students learn to play along to songs from various rock groups such as The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Rush, Kiss and Led Zeppelin. We also covered funk artist Sly & The Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic and James Brown, to name a few. From there, I started teaching at Dale Music, Co., where I served as the Director of Drum Set Studies for the past nine (9) years with a concentration on performing jazz. My personal drumming style has been influenced by Steve Gadd, William Kennedy, Jimmy Cobb, Art Blakey, Steve Smith and Ndugu Chancler to name a few. ...

My son has been Jeff's student for almost 2 years. We are very grateful for the knowledge and skills that Jeff has. He has taught my son how to play the drums the correct way, and it shows! Jeff is easy to work with, and always willing to help whenever and however he can.

Jeff taught me for 7 years. Over that time he became more than just a drum teacher, he became a friend and mentor to me. I was always excited to go to his lessons because I would improve every day with him. Every lesson I would learn something new. Jeff is a great teacher and wonderful company, I'd recommend him to anyone. Perfect practice makes perfect and there are no short cuts.

About Daniel

I am a fun and energetic multi-instrumentalist who loves to play and explore music of all kinds. I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years, guitar for 9 years, and bass guitar for 6 years. Music is a source of enjoyment and an avenue for creative expression, and this is what I keep in mind as a teacher.

I believe the best way to teach anything is to focus on the individual student's need. I have no single way to teach, and I cater lessons to students' individual needs and wants.

I am very committed to providing a high quality musical experience for you; I am very flexible and willing to accommodate difficult schedules and special requests.
