Timothy H.

Washington, DC

We concentrate on developing proper technique including posture and fingering, scales and strengthening exercises, beginning to intermediate theory, musicality and knowledge of repertoire in various genres

About Timothy

I hold a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. With over 15 years of experience, in both piano and voice, I've had to opportunity to perform, both domestically and internationally, with such great acts as Peter Nero and The Philly Pops, The Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, and many others. I served as lead singer, pianist, and co-songwriter for a number of independent bands covering numerous genres including, but not limited to, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Acoustic, and A Capella.

Since moving to Washington DC, I've immersed myself within the local music communit
y playing a handful of group and solo acts. I currently maintain a home music studio well equipped with musical instruments and music technology. I'm constantly practicing, writing, and recording to improve myself as an artist.

My teaching style is unique and individualized to each student. I set personalized goals to make every lesson a success, and I push my students to get the most out of themselves just like I do myself. I'm always enthusiastic and humor driven to create a personable learning environment for students of any age. Music is my life, and I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to share my greatest passion with the hope that my students, too, will fall in love with music!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson environment is laid back and stress-free. I like my students to feel inspired and encouraged as they begin, and/or continue, their music education. I introduce fun and innovative ways to build students' musicianship and creativity while retaining classic methods to develop strong technique and proper performance and practice habits.

For beginners, we'll be exploring the basics of either piano, or voice, while focusing on proper technique, basic theory, and a solid skill set. Within 3-6 months, my students are able to read music and understand the language of it.

For intermediate-advanced, we'll focus on building musicianship and skill sets by furthering studies in music theory, varying styles of repertoire, proper techniques that will greatly improve your piano and/or voice abilities, songwriting, improvisation, and live performance skills. We can also cover the basics of recording so you not only have tangible evidence of your improvement over time, but the know-how to create your own music!

I ask that my students come prepared to every lesson with the motivation and commitment to learn something new each week! Lessons are a fun and creative way to discover yourself as an artist and a person, so let's get started!!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha CLP-550 Upright Electric Piano, 13" MacBook Pro and iPad mini (Apple), ProTools9 (Avid), LogicPro8 (Apple), MBox Interface System (Avid), M-Audio 25 key Midi Controller, MXL4000 Condenser Microphone, Shure SM-58 Dynamic Microphone,, BeatsStudio Studio Headphones (beats by dr. dre), HD280 Pro Studio Heaphones (Sennheiser) and G900DX Studio Headphones (Gear One).

First off, Timothy has an amazing voice. That's number one. Number two, he is warm hearted and makes sure you feel at home. He really takes everything he knows and teaches you along the way. I know I've made progress since I started 5 weeks ago, and I know it will just get better.

Lola M.

Woodbridge, VA

I LOVE teaching piano, and all the elements that come along with learning this instrument. Whether you want a solid classical training or you'd like to build on the basics to play with lead sheets, we'll have a blast going through the paces, learning to make this instrument fun!

About Lola

I have more than 30 years of musical experience. I’ve taught guitar, piano, bass, and theater in private schools, art schools and I’m currently teaching at Classic Axe Guitar Gallery in Gainesville, VA. I’ve taught over 250 students in all levels of experience, tailoring each lesson to fit each student, covering all genres, so that learning their instrument is fun. It’s been exciting to see some of them become music majors, some of them become performers, and some using their skills and gifts to teach others. I love teaching and sharing my musical knowledge with people of ALL ages. I believe a
nyone can learn music, with the right approach and encouragement. Nothing gives me more pleasure than watching my students accomplish more than they ever dreamed possible.

I loved taking guitar lessons with Lola! She's excellent with beginners of all ages. I've seen her coax actual chords out of clueless eight-year-old and empower adults to take the stage for the first time ever. Lola is a wonderful encourager and always easy to work with.

Annie did a great job figuring out my daughter's competency level, as she had been taking lessons with a different teacher previously. Once she had that figured out, she was very adaptable, and worked hard to provide a lesson plan that would work for her. I highly recommend Annie.
