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.

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.

I specialize in spreading the joy of learning music by having fun while teaching my beginners and intermediate level kids.

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
