Miles H.

Falls Church, VA

I not only focus on reading, technique and theory but how these subjects relate to the music you listen to.

I believe music is a language and is understood best in context of of what music you enjoy on a daily basis, that way you can play along.

I like to structure my lessons around the student, focusing on their goals and aspirations.

About Miles

Miles was born in Bogota, Colombia, but raised in Annapolis, MD. Early in life, he began to take classical piano lessons, but after 9 years, guitar became his instrument of choice (though he still has a fond appreciation for the piano).

He then went on to graduate from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music. His time at Berklee has enabled Miles to play in venues all around the Boston/Cambridge area. He has been teaching around NOVA/DC for 3 years.

Miles does his best to make lessons incorporate the music you enjoy listening to in conjunction with the nec
essary theory and technique to do so.

Fun Fact: Two of his guitars are custom built by himself. He often provides students assistance in maintenance of their instrument.

"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inner places of the soul." - Plato

I'm a beginning guitar student and have just started taking guitar lessons from Miles. He's very knowledgable, patient, and kind. I haven't quite made "friends" with those strings yet, but with Miles' help, I know I will.

Miles is fantastic!

Miles is great at working with my 11 year old on both what she wants to learn and what she needs to learn; he ensures the right balance of theory and contemporary music to keep her interested. We move a lot and have had other piano teachers over the last several years, but Miles is top notch. His calm demeanor and endless patience is much appreciated in this house! Hope he continues to teach my daughter for years to come.

Charles S.

Waldorf, MD

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.

About Charles

Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local
rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my college years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Funk, pop, and classical.

Christine P.

Alexandria, VA

I specialize in setting students up with very clear and strong fundamentals in reading, music theory, counting, interpretation and reasoning.

I teach students how to simplify music, even students who have struggled significantly in the past with their reading comprehension.

I have a very clear methodology for setting students up for success and becoming musically independent. My technique is based in Russian technique.

I teach in the traditional route, but I include it into other styles of music.

I work with many client's with impairments that have found success in my methods. Please ask me how if you have any questions.

About Christine

First and foremost thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and I look forward to helping you work toward your musical aspirations.

Professional recording artist with two U.S. Billboards (2014) in the popular adult contemporary and an E.P. (3 singles) currently playing on radio in the U.K. You may find my music on iTunes and other online distributors such as Spotify. I also have a profile on Reverbnation.com.

Received music education from George Mason University in classical vocal performance.

I have continued my vocal studies with the incomparable Fabiana Bravo, who studied unde
r Luciano Pavarotti. From her I have learned the true Italian tradition of Bel canto and Verismo in opera. This differs from the American interpretation of the art.

I am a true dramatic soprano. I sit between mezzo and soprano. Having a rare and large instrument has given me invaluable insight and a wider perspective on all other voice types because of it.

I specialize in intonation and teach students how to apply specific vocal techniques to create different colors in their resonators. From this students will be able to achieve different styles of music while maintaining the integrity and authenticity of their instrument.

Some of the styles I offer are jazz, popular adult contemporary, classical, opera, R&B, traditional pop, gospel, spiritual, hymnal, musical theater, big ballad, country and any variation of these styles.

What to expect during lessons:

I base lessons on the assessment of the student's individual structure and voice type, much like the true Italian style. Students will develop their technique through very clear and specific vocal exercises. They will put this into practical use through their rep.

Beyond this objective we will cover other artistic and technical aspects including musically interpretation, diction, phrasing, timing, and performance.

We will also discuss the mentality of singing. This approach helps students learn their instrument immensely better than without it.

I also teach piano in the European route. I specialize in proper reading skills and developing good technique. I will show students how to uses strategies to sight read music on their own and develop interpretive skills.

I have developed a method of teaching that helps students systematically identify pitches and counting with accuracy.

My goal is for my students to become independent musicians. I have worked with many children with disabilities as well. Please ask me how.

Lastly, I love music, I love life, I love my family, I love my dogs, I love my coffee and I love to laugh a lot (I'm very Italian in that way).

I always say to people considering taking voice lessons to just come as they are. Leave your worries at the door:) I understand that a person's voice is a very personally extension of who they are and it can be intimidating to sing in front of a professional.

I have taught hundreds of students and am well versed in seeing many different vocal issues.

I want to assure any potential students that the space I provide is professional, safe, encouraging, friendly and welcoming.

Voice begins at age 12 and piano at age 5.

I teach beginner to expert level advancement in voice and beginner to intermediate advancement in piano.

I started my teaching career at Lorton music full time as a vocal and piano instructor and have over five years experience. At Lorton Music I was so highly recommended and referred to by other clients that I was required to put students on a wait-list to work with me. My success in teaching has allowed me to open up my own private studio from home, which has been such a blessing:)

A little bit about the types of students I have in my studio. I have a diverse range of students in terms of age and interest for their musically aspirations.

I have had many students casted as main roles time and again in high school and community musicals. I have had many students get into districts, all county and state choir. I even had a student get the highest score in the entire state for her voice.

I have had professional vocalists work with me. I have had students win competitions and talent shows. I have had students take lessons to improve their voice for worship services.

I have had students want to simply sing better as a personal hobby and for themselves. I have students want to master a particular style of music. I have students take on the discipline to work through their disability, such as autism, attention deficit and speech impediments among others.

I have had students who have taken voice lessons before or attended music school, but have been out of practice or are looking for a better fit in a vocal coach. I have had students who want to build their confidence and find their voice and have managed to overcome personal issues such as stage fright, anxiety and other personal insecurities.

I have had students get into collegiate vocal programs such as Glee club. I have also had students get into music school for voice with several offers to schools including full scholarships.

This is only a handful of the reasons students have decide to take lessons with me. Whatever your reason, it's a calling and I am here to simply serve faithfully as your teacher.

Christine kept a very open and fun atmosphere which made for a wonderful learning environment. Her knowledge in her art and ability to tell what I was doing wrong and being able to correct it just by listening was impressive and inspiring. She has mastered the ability to explain the mechanics and fundamentals of singing in a simple and easy way to understand. I look forward to all future lessons with Christine and am excited to see the things that I can learn and accomplish with Christine's guidance. I would recommend Christine for anyone of any age to take lessons with her.
