Emily F. Laurel, MD

In these lessons, I will help you develop a stage presence and demeanor on stage. These are lessons that are aimed towards helping you be the best performer you can be.

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!
Wilma Evangeline B. Bowie, MD

As a private music teacher, I provide instrumental, vocal and music training for children and adults of all ages. I have developed and prepared learning materials and repertoire for my students at different stages of their musical development; I teach individual and/or group lessons lasting from 30 minutes to an hour or longer, usually incorporating elements of general musicianship, such as ear training and theory, as well as instrumental technique and interpretation. Also, I do arrange performance opportunities for your my students, such as concerts for friends and relatives; preparing them for performances, examinations, auditions and festivals.

Ms.Wilma is awesome! She is patient and knowledgeable in Violin. Her expertise helped to identify that the music store provided our daughter with the wrong size violin. Once that was corrected, her playing got better. Our daughter, 4 years old, loves Ms. Wilma and is very excited for each lesson with her.

Wilma is a wonderful instructor. She is extremely patient and will go over the materials until the student understand and can play the lesson as required. I was able to sit and observe her in the lesson and was able to assist my son when he was practicing. She is always prompt and ready to go when we arrived. We never had to wait she was always prepared. My child is 6 and Wilma was able to get him focused on what he needed to do in class and he was able to replicate the lesson at home.

Music Theory and Music Performance

Ms. Wilma's enthusiasm for life and music shines through in her instrumental playing and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many music genres and can teach different kinds of musical instruments.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and easy to be around. One of her main strengths is her ability to convey musical thoughts in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.
I really enjoyed how she have enriched my ability to think about musical concepts, discuss theories in music, and listen to different types of music.

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.

Ethan P. Silver Spring, MD

While I primarily work with bassists, my experience as a band leader means I've worked to improve the performance of a variety of musicians on different instruments.

About Ethan

Hello, my name is Ethan. I'm a 2014 graduate of Oberlin College and Conservatory where I studied Jazz Bass.

My main performance experience is in jazz settings--I've performed with jazz artists like Rufus Reid, Gary Bartz, Steve Turre, and Marshall Keys. Additionally, I've received Outstanding Soloist and Outstanding Small Jazz Combo Awards from Downbeat Magazine.
While the majority of my experience is in jazz settings, I've also taught rock, pop, funk, and gospel styles to electric bassists and classical styles to upright bassists. While at Oberlin I taught bluegrass, funk, jazz, arranging, improv, and classical lessons to 18-40 year olds. My teaching approach focuses on performance--it doesn't matter what style the student is interested in.

Singing can be difficult to teach yourself, so having someone who can listen to you critically, without judgment, is really important. In any genre, we need to know how to sing higher (with ease), how to sing in tune, and how to reduce tension.

About Shannon

Hello! I'm Shannon, and I would love to teach you about music! I have an extensive musical background in both performance and education. I attended George Mason University and the world renowned College of Music at the University of North Texas. I am also an award winning bassist and singer, having performed at such venues as the Kennedy Center, Blues Alley, Rams Head Tavern, and more. I specialize in teaching contemporary styles (pop, rock, jazz, musical theater, etc.). I have taught many successful young vocalists and instrumentalists and believe in a positive, fun, confidence building approach. My students learn music theory, warm ups, and technique in conjunction with songs so they can apply musical concepts in a practical way.
