About Rebecca

I love music and I love teaching! I started out with a passion for musical theater, and eventually I developed a love for opera and art songs. I love how singing requires both physical awareness and mental focus, and I will strive to teach the balance of these aspects. Whether you want to gear up for karaoke or learn how to sing an Italian aria, I can offer you advice and training to help you meet your goals. I've had a great deal of experience reaching out to students of all ages. I taught undergraduates while finishing my masters degree in Chicago, and while performing outreach with the San Diego Opera and Anchorage Opera. Outside of music, I love competing in triathlons! *** Lesson Details *** I will cater each lesson to meet the student's individual needs. Our lessons ...

I started taking lessons with Rebecca over 2 years ago. It was one of the best decisions of my life. Rebecca is a fantastic teacher, very energetic, patient, encouraging and fun. I feel like I am a whole different singer than I was 2 years ago. Before, I used to like singing. But now, I love it, and I have the confidence I need to sing with friends and feel comfortable with my voice. If you are considering taking singing lessons, Rebecca is the way to go! :)

Thank you Rebecca!

Can't thank her enough...

My daughter really enjoys singing lessons with Rebecca! She is fun and challenging. My daughter's confidence in her own singing ability has improved since she started lessons. She no longer hides behind other students during school concerts. She stands out and looks beautiful and confident while she sings. Rebecca works hard to make sure you get the best possible experience. She is definitely respected and admired for her singing and teaching abilities.

About Benjamin

I discovered music sifting through my Dad's record collection and soon decided that I wanted to play guitar. As a teenager I began taking lessons and building confidence in my abilities. I played in different types of bands ranging from rock, country, blues, and jazz. After completing College in 2004, I realized music was not just going to be a hobby, but a career. At age 33, I have been teaching and playing guitar professionally for the last nine years. I believe that anybody can learn to play as long as they are patient and understand that anything worthwhile takes time and sustained effort to achieve. You also need a good teacher who understands how to take you where you want to go musically. I have taught hundreds of different students of all ages and abilities. I have seen ...

Ben is an amazing guitar teacher who is patient and always willing to work with a busy schedule. As a senior in high school, many things pop up and we are always able to work around it. His lessons are based around what the students want to learn and he always finds a way to accomplish it. He has a great deal of knowledge in music theory and has helped me many times stay ahead in my music theory class in school and more importantly how to tie it in musically. As a performing musician as well, he has experience and other bits of wisdom about music and beyond that he can/will share and has which I feel is important as well.

Dorothy C. Baltimore, MD

About Dorothy

I am a violin and viola teacher born and raised in the Baltimore area. I have been teaching private lessons and group classes for the last eight years and studied both performance and pedagogy at some of the best music schools in the country. I most recently completed a Graduate Performance Diploma at Peabody Conservatory, where I also studied pedagogy under Rebecca Henry and Janet Melnicoff-Brown of the Peabody Preparatory. While the majority of my teacher training and professional work has been on the violin, I am a violist at heart. I teach students ages 3 to adult at my home studio in Mount Vernon, and I enjoy working with students who have all different levels of ability and commitment. Everyone is welcome. Graduate studies at Peabody Conservatory and Longy School of ...

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.

Thank you for what you have done for Mechelle so far. She enjoys coming to lessons and feels very comfortable working with you. And it's nice to know that she's getting the attention and help that she needs to be successful in learning the viola.

About Jacob

My name is Jacob and I have played guitar professionally in Baltimore and Northern Virginia for the past four years. I specialize in jazz and funk guitar but I also have extensive experience playing rock, Latin, blues, and have even been developing the ability to play classical with a pick. I graduated from Goucher College in 2011 with a degree in Music Performance and Jazz Studies. Whether its understanding music theory and composition, learning how to improvise in different stylistic contexts, developing chops, playing with other musicians, or simply plugging in and playing your favorite songs at a volume your neighbors won't appreciate- I can help! *** Lesson Details *** I consider myself to be a fairly laid back teacher. I understand people have busy schedules and the last thing

First rate, easygoing instructor

Jake is great. I have had five lessons to date and have enjoyed our time together immensely. We have a great balance between fundamentals and just playing. I look forward to our next round of sessions.

Further, I was a bit hesitant about finding an instructor online--and I am delighted to be proved wrong. This whole process from web site to a clearly competent instructor in Jake has made this very easy and comfortable.

About Belinda

*** Lesson Details *** NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student. I ...

I have been working with Belinda for a little over 2 years. Every lesson, she challenges me to be better than before. What I love most about her style, is she customizes her style of teaching for the student. I am a very imagery oriented person, and she always helps me to visualize things in ways that makes sense to me. My singing has dramatically improved during my time with Belinda, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. Every lesson is different, every lesson is challenging in a new way, and every time I walk away feeling like that was the best lesson I've ever had. Thank you Belinda!!

From the very first lesson, my daughter felt that she was learning a great deal from Belinda. Belinda cares about her students and is good with different styles of singing. She's always very professional, but fun at the same time.

Grace Is Tops!

By the end of May, I will have been working with Grace for six months. During that time, I have learned so much! I now feel I understand how to attack a new piano piece, and I am slowly gaining skill in executing it. My love for the instrument has simply skyrocketed!

Grace has an amazing skill set. Not only does she possess expert knowledge of the piano, but she exhibits that unique ability to convey her knowledge to others, in a straightforward, engaging, and often humorous manner.

Each lesson fires me to learn more and more, and I am very happy with the results!

Excellent teacher! Nice, professional and fun to work to work with.

Grace embodies all that means music. Her passion for teaching students translates into a great experience of having her as an piano instructor. She is fun and professional at the same time. She stays on task and helps me improve my piano skills even as an adult beginner. I recommend Grace to anyone in the Baltimore area and beyond.
