Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

About Jason

I have been teaching and performing as a full time career since 1994. Over the years, I have developed an approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I will help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Musicians think, learn, and create in many different ways. Some are visual learners, preferring to learn by studying diagrams and reading notes. Others learn intuitively, simply by listening, imitating, and then creating. My objective is to find the lear
ning style which works best for each of my students. I can help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve those goals.

*** Specialties ***
I'm comfortable teaching any style, from bluegrass to jazz, blues, rock and metal.

Though I was only able to take lessons with Jason for a couple months due to an unexpected move, I was able to learn a lot from him. I came in with very little guitar experience and no background in music. His lessons are very accommodating and I felt I walked away a little bit better every time. Jason is a great guy and it is easy to share your goals and ideas for the future with him. When working with Jason it felt like a team effort in order to help me reach my goals. In the short time I took lessons with Jason I learned a lot about the guitar and I am excited to build upon the music career he helped me to start. A definite Recommendation.

Joshua L.

Glen Burnie, MD

About Joshua

I am an active musician in the Baltimore and Washington area working as a pianist, guitarist, producer, and composer. I am a music director at two churches and spend time gigging, writing, and teaching. I graduated from the university of the arts with a degree in music performance performing in different ensembles from Latin jazz to the school's production of "Porgy and Bess." I have been teaching students of all ages for over 8 years and I love working with children. Not only will students learn to read music but will get a great sense of rhythm, balanced theory, and even songwriting for tho
se interested.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a universal language that I believe anyone can get a basic understanding for. I cater my lessons to the individual needs of the student. I am laid back during lessons but wont settle for less than excellent. My goal is to push students beyond what they think is possible of them and let them discover the potential that they have. I do this by usually teaching out of a lesson book and then allowing students to pick a supplement book or even just songs that they want to learn. This way lessons are fun yet the fundamentals are still being driven into their memory. In 6 months new students should have at least built up the confidence that's needed to be good musician.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students should have a piano of their own or their own guitar. Students have to be able to practice in order to get better. a casio keyboard with 61 keys is just fine too

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25
lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students.I produce and write hip hop, pop, rock music professionally. I went to college and studied jazz performance on piano for 4 years. this included classical as well. I also play gospel on keys and blues on guitar.

About Kimberly

My educational background is in flute performance; I have completed a Bachelor's from American University, Master's at Catholic University, and Artist Certificate at George Mason University, all in music. I have been teaching flute lessons to students of all different levels, from beginners to adults, since 2010 and would love to add to my studio!

Another passion of mine is math. I began volunteering as a peer tutor in high school and have since had experience in helping a wide variety of ages and ability levels throughout many different curricula. I am able to provide great test taking tip
s, homework help, and an extra boost to keep students ahead of the class.

Kim is truly amazing in every way. She is the best math tutor in Washington DC hands down. She is patient, smart and extremely easy to work with and learn from. She has helped me enormously prepare for getting into business school. I strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a fantastic math tutor who knows how to break down difficult concepts in a comprehensible manner.

Rachel S.

Elkridge, MD

About Rachel

Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 8 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include cl
assical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with you!

Just a side note- due to an EXTREMELY demanding schedule, I do ask for flexibility when scheduling. GENERALLY, I can fit new students into my Sunday schedule, or potentially Saturday evening, depending on location. Most of my students are located in the Ellicott City/Fulton/Laurel area, so it is easier for me to be flexible with those locations. For weekdays, I am typically available late evenings. If you are a student who would like lessons during weekday mornings/early afternoons, I have the most flexibility!!

Thanks so much!
