Sean D. Hyattsville, MD

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Performance, Music Recording, Percussion

About Me

I love jamming, teaching, instructing, practicing, learning new songs, and I am always up for a challenge!

So about me,
I grew up in the suburbs of Cincinnati, OH. My Father started playing the drums at an early age and started teaching me when I was about 12 years old. I've had over a dozen private instructors and grew up playing drums starting in Middle-school, through High-school as a "Band GEEK". In 7th grade I started playing with the school jazz band and readily learned "proper technique". In 8th Grade I was a "Ninja", or a "helper" for the High-school Marching Band. My freshman year I finally was apart of the drumline. Starting off as a Bass Drummer I made my way to the Snare line by my Junior year. In the High-school district (Mason, OH) we traveled around the country winning awards for the Winter Percussion Ensemble, and also played for MEPA, winning 7th In the World as a the (7th) best Drumline Ensemble out of thousands.

Also during High-school and after graduating I played with 3 different local bands (as a drumset player) covering metal, jazz, fusion, rock, progressive rock, christian rock, samba, funk, and various independent artists; and learning to mimic their playing styles; Terry Bozzio, Akira Jimbo, Marco Minnemann, Mike Portnoy, Vinnie Paul, Dave Lombardo, Dave Weckl, to name a few...

After Graduating High-school in 2002, I started to study Music Education in Three different colleges. Moving to Portland, OR I started off by studying "General Music" at Portland Community College Cascade, then transferred to Portland State University majoring in Percussion. After a full 2 years of both colleges I transferred to California State University Northridge to continue my studies in Percussion. While studying in school I was taught in Voice, Ear training, Sight reading, Harmony, Music Theory, Piano, and all Percussion instruments.

While living in California I played with a couple different local bands practicing, recording and also performed at the "Viper Room" in downtown Hollywood (owned by Johnny Depp). I also played as a back up drummer for a local Open-Mic night club in downtown Hollywood from 2007 through 2008.

In 2009, I moved back here to Portland, OR to reconnect with local Percussionists and to expand my interests as a drummer. I currently have a studio practicing and recording area in my apartment which allows me to post videos online and teach at my own leisure. Check me out! Thanks for your time!

*** Lesson Details ***
I currently am giving drumset lessons; where there is a bit variety of: ear training, rhythmic dictation, percussion, and metronomic time signatures while also learning how to read music!

Want to be able to learn how to back up an entire BAND? OR do you love to drive a BAND? OR do you just want to be amazing at drum solos? While also learning how to push yourself to the limit in all kinds of drumset styles? I am the one that CAN and WILL HELP!

Music is an expression, all it needs is someone to help them find it within themselves, and I am confident I can help you.

I provide step by step instruction and can teach you what you want to learn. I am patient and understanding. Music isn't about messing up and quitting, its about staying consistent and pushing yourself through boundaries and limits you never knew you had in you.

Some people say you have to have talent, but the reality is anyone can be taught its all about the right instructor.

Marquita N. Alexandria, VA

Subjects Taught

Cello, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Viola, Violin

About Me

 

Marquita Renee N. is a
multi-talented musician. She has been giving private lessons on the violin,
viola, cello, piano and voice for almost thirteen years now. She is also a
freelance editor. She edited a book for Rob Jolles entitled, Mental Agility,
which was published in May of 2006. 

 

She is a graduate of Shenandoah
University, Conservatory of Music. The recipient of an Academic Scholarship and
Viola Talent Scholarship, Marquita was a Dean's List Scholar,
receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Arts Management in May of 1999.

 

Having taught in numerous schools
and programs such as Agape Christian Academy, Mars Music, Capone Music,
Alexandria Music, Music by Patti in Suwanee, Georgia (where she established a
strings program), ArtStream, and establishing her own teaching company/ studio,
Mrs. Marquita€™s Music, she finds teaching to be therapeutic for both the
student and herself.

 

She enjoys reading, writing poems/ journaling, and
being with family and close friends. Listening to €œGod€™s Words Through Me,€ you
may hear influences of folk, country and jazz music along with traditional and
contemporary Gospel as Marquita is a listener of all €œgood music". 

*** Lesson Details ***
Taking lessons with Mrs. Marquita means that you will have so much fun learning your musical instrument. I infuse traditional teaching methods with music theory. My main goal is to teach my students the joy of playing a musical instrument so they will be able to read music and play it and also be able to begin to play by ear. Whatever song or melody they here they should be able to sing or play on their instrument. My style is laid back, but I am strict in such a subtle manner that my students only remember me being funny and how much fun they have learning music. I also teach the history behind the music as well as music theory. I think it is important for each student to understand exactly what is in their music and why they are playing it. We use scales (vocalization and breathing techniques for singers) as warm ups and then get into the pieces that we're working on. I use John Thompson/ Suzuki/ various other books and sheet music for piano. For Strings I use the Suzuki Method books (we do not learn Strict Suzuki method which relies solely on the ear. We use the books because it is important for each student to develop the ear and be able to actually read the music that they are playing). For Strings we also supplement the learning with various other sheet music as well as any orchestral pieces the students may need extra help with. For voice (I can teach any vocal style--from opera, pop, Gospel, Jazz, Theatre) I use a variety of books according to my students' goals and styles.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my supplies that I need for teaching, and my students should have their instruments and their supplies.

*** Specialties ***
I love the Suzuki methods for piano and strings. For piano I also use the John Thompson's books and Alfreds for adults.

Priscilla L. Silver Spring, MD

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I'm not just personable and qualified but I am a versatile professional who truly love to mentor young enthusiasts the arts such as music and visual arts and I believe the importance of adapting my teachings to each students needs. Through my 13 years of studying Music in both here in the US and in Brazil I've come to realize with the teachings of my mentors, peers and my parents that I have a goal to teach kids and in order to be part of the enrichment of culture I would continue to pursue art, music and education by doing so. It's vital to me to teach arts alternatively and I'll do so for always with great passion.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have an easy-going, yet structured approach that allows each student to achieve results effectively at his or her own pace. I believe that there is a connection between music, movement and language that intertwine and support each other through the development process. I specialize in teaching all kinds of styles from Classical, Pop,Bossa Nova in guitar, piano and music theory lessons. I Love to emphasize various playing techniques, music theory, ear training, music reading, and more.The materials for teaching varies.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Books, Metronome, Guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
note book, assigned books and sheet music assigned

*** Specialties ***
Guitar, Piano, Music Theory and Performance is what we do !
My main goal is to present students with simplified arrangements of standard repertoire concentrating on sight-reading and writing composition as well as playing all sorts of variety of music genres. Use of the metronome is needed, and very often the exercises defy the tendency to play by ear or in the position pattern.We will focus 1/2 of the lesson on repertoire and 1/2 the lesson on the technique. I have my students let me know via email what songs they would like to work on for the weeks lesson a few days prior to the lesson, then I cater the technical study during the lesson to help them learn the song we are working on. It has been proven to be very effective and makes the technique and theory are less uninteresting.
Through good vibes we all learn and grow tremendously so with that said come and Jam with me.

William T. Alexandria, VA

Subjects Taught

Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Piano, Trombone, Trumpet

About Me

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.

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy a creative learning environment where I approach difficult technique from many different angles, boiling it down to the most simple form when needed. I enjoy having fun in lessons while accomplishing the goals I set out. I expect students to practice as I teach them to, and present any problems they are having at the beginning of the lesson so I give them the guidance that they need to overcome them. Lessons are most effective when the students are enjoying what they are learning and welcome new challenges. Learning a new instrument is difficult, only when you aren't having fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full sized keyboard with weighted keys.
Trombones
Pedal Harp
Professional Microphone and recording equipment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide sheet music for each student

*** Specialties ***
Styles: Classical (solo and orchestral), Jazz, Contemporary
