About Me

I am originally from Chicago, Illinois and now reside in the Maryland/Washington D.C. area. I started singing publicly around the age of 5 and playing piano at 9. From there I have toured overseas to various parts of Europe and across the United States. I have learned various techniques from Classical, to Gospel, to Country, to R&B, to Pop/Rock, to Musical Theatre and many more. In addition to just singing them myself I can effectively teach others the how to sing their favorite genre as well. I have taught for music and arts, Andrews Air Force base and several local music schools. I also help students preparing for college auditions, and recitals. In addition, I have experience with social media and online presence which can allow vocal singers the opportunity to sing with others and create various performance recordings. On the academic side of things I help tutor students in a variety of subjects and coach them to achieve better grades, and higher test scores to create an attractive college preparation portfolio.

*** Lesson Details ***
In lessons its really all about you and what you would like to learn. I am comfortable teaching all ages and helping you learn more about the music that you love. Whether that's learning a song to sing to your spouse for an upcoming anniversary, learning essential repertoire to get into the music school of your dreams, or if you have always wanted to learn piano but just never had time before. My job is to help you improve and help you get to where you want to go. However, this is not always an easy task much work and hard practice goes into learning how to sing correctly and/or play piano. Although there are many fun and exciting times there are also times when work needs to get done, and like anything else practice is KEY. So whether you are just starting out or if you have been in lessons for years I look forward to helping you and seeing you thrive. Also, I promise to provide a curriculum that is tailored specifically to you and your needs to help further assist in your musical growth. I love to just have fun and I hope that you will not only have fun but also learn lots of music as well.

Emily Z. Columbia, MD

Subjects Taught

Acoustic Guitar, Acting, Classical Guitar, Classical Piano, Classical Voice, Ear Training, Guitar, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Singing

About Me

Hello! My name is Emily Z. and I am currently the Choral Director at a public high school in Montgomery County, MD. I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education/Voice from West Chester University of Pennsylvania in 2012. I have been teaching private lessons to young musicians for over four years. My concentration is in Classical Voice , but I also enjoy teaching a rigorous and fun Piano curriculum at my high school and also enjoy teaching Guitar. I also have background in Musical Theater, Acting and Audition Prep and I am a creative and patient facilitator of Classical Music Reading/Writing, Music Theory, Sight Reading and Ear Training - I feel that these skills are important for all my students to learn!

Below are my lessons offered with details:

Classical Voice in Your Home:
It is preferable that families have a piano in their home.
In this series of lessons, I will teach your young musician basic breathing and vocal techniques to support their singing voice wherever they choose to take it! Vocal health and anatomy is included because with the right foundation, your student will have a long and healthy singing career. Depending on the students age, different aspects of classical training can be taught such as; singing in a different language (Italian, French, Spanish, German), sight-reading (the ability to sing a piece without having heard it before), preparing a song in a favorite style (Musical Theater, Classical, Pop) and many other options that can tailor vocal training to your student's interests. We can also spend time learning or preparing the music for your student's choir class, church choir, All-County or All-State concerts, or any audition they may have coming up. All of my lesson series end with a recital of prepared pieces for family and friends.

Classical and Popular Piano in Your Home
It is necessary that students have their own piano or keyboard.
In this series of the lessons, which is modeled after my own curriculum in the classroom, I will teach your student the basic of music reading. They will be able to begin practicing on the keyboard on day one. My curriculum is easily sequenced and filled with fun milestone projects so students can master and apply the large vocabulary of skills they acquire in relevant ways. Some projects include; recitals, writing music, accompanying a singer, duets and learning to play your favorite popular song, among many more. All of my lesson series end with a recital of prepared pieces for family and friends.

Classical and Popular Guitar (Your Home or Mine):
It is necessary that students have their own guitar - acoustic, classical or electric.
In this series of lessons, I will take your young musician from the basic of guitar anatomy to reading music to applying what they've learned to play their favorite songs. It is always necessary to have a good foundation of classical music reading (knowing the notes of the guitar and what they look like on paper) in order to progress to chords and strum patterns. The goal of this well-rounded course is to have your student be able to read and play guitar in the Standard Notation of music (on a staff) AND be able to read Lead Sheet Notation (just chords) to play their favorite popular repertoire and play with others in a band setting.

Music Reading/Music Theory/Ear Training/Sight Reading (Your Home or Mine):
No materials necessary. Keyboard would be helpful for you to have.
This course is ideal for older students who are seriously considering applying to a college or university music program. Most programs require an entrance exam that tests how well you hear music, write music and read music. My course will identify what your student's strengths and weaknesses are and prepare them to be a well-rounded musician with a wide musical vocabulary and the ability to hear and identify important musical moments. These lessons are ideal for vocalists and instrumentalists and anyone who wants to begin their music education.

Acting on Stage (Your Home or Mine)
With a long background in performance and directing, I can teach your aspiring actor or actress the basics of dramaturgy, speech, auditioning and performance on stage. Whether your student is preparing for a role in the school play, a commercial audition, or would just like to become a more confident speaker, these lessons will provide a well-rounded knowledge of the stage, voice, and movement in fun and engaging ways! All lesson series will culminate with a performance for family and friends. Students are encouraged to sign up and bring a friend or two for even more fun acting possibilities!

*** Specialties ***
Trained in Orff, Kodaly and Dalcroze methods of Music Education. I am creative and patient and keep students interested with engaging and relevant activities. I have earned a Certificate of Completion in Teaching Music to Special Learners and have a variety of accommodating approaches to teaching music to students with special needs.

Thank you for reading! I hope to hear from you soon and get your student started on the wholesome, enriching and fun path of a musical education!

About Me

I have multiple years of experience tutoring both kids and adults in a variety of different subjects, from English to Algebra.
I enjoy teaching, acting, dancing, writing poetry, and playing soccer.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each and every lesson is tailor-made to fit the needs of the student. It will have an immediate objective as well as fitting into a long-term goal. While fun is not the object of the lesson (learning is), it is certainly a welcome by-product.

*** Studio Equipment ***
You bring: an eagerness to learn.
I'll bring: everything else.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I just pack up all the essentials from the studio and come to you!

*** Specialties ***
Acting: I have performed in and directed multiple plays and have been trained in improv and scripted theatrical arts. I love Shakespeare and enjoy bringing the pages to life. The last student I coached scored a leading role in her school's big production.

Economics: I studied under some of the brightest economists and have a firm foundation in both micro and macroeconomics as well as international economics, particularly that pertaining to the third world and poverty alleviation strategies. The last student I tutored raised her grade two letters.

English: I teach ESL classes and have worked with students with very little knowledge of the language as well as those who just wanted to delve deeper into its intricacies. I am a published poet and enjoy employing rhyme and meter. The last student I tutored progressed from learning the alphabet to engaging in conversations.

Math: I enjoy problem-solving, and once I figured out that Math was like riddles with numbers I began to enjoy it too. I'm best at explaining Algebra (I & II) or Geometry. The last student I tutored was initially scared of failing, but ended with an A in the course.

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Singing, Speaking Voice, Theater Acting

About Me

With over 10 years in professional regional musical theater in the D.C. Metropolitan area, I have worked with some of the brightest minds in the region to develop a strong foundation and intuitive sense of acting and staging techniques from a performing and directing perspective. Developing an alluring stage presence is an important aspect of any performance and is a focus in lessons.

Presently featured as a choral tenor and tenor soloist in the nation's capital, I have extensive experience with vocal performance in a wide range of genres including musical theater, pop/ R&B, and early/classical repertoire. I hold a B.A. in Vocal Performance from the esteemed University of Baltimore County where I was a Linehan Artist Scholarship recipient. I regularly perform with such groups as The Handel Choir of Baltimore (as a professional tenor ringer), Countertop Ensemble (D.C.), and Chantry (D.C.). I am currently a full-time tenor for the Basilica of the National Shrine.

Growing up with and around brilliant minds in music, theater, and visual art has afforded me a well-rounded perspective on performance that I bring to my own career on a daily basis. It is my foremost goal as a teacher to provide my students with this same perspective and to bring their skills to their full potential.
