Sophia, my six year old, had her first lesson this evening with Matthew. He was extremely attentive and understood very quickly where she was level-wise and was able to tailor a lesson without hesitation. She really enjoyed her time and I think she got a lot out of it. She can't wait for next week.

Yelena has been a wonderful piano teacher. Always cheerful and patient and has been flexible with my crazy schedule. I appreciate that she took the time to challenge me and encourage me as I got started on learning to play the piano - something I've wanted to do for years! Even though I can no longer continue (due to my work schedule), she's given me lots to practice at home and hopefully I'll be able to return later. Yelena is the best!

Earl Carter is extremely knowledgeable, and very patience. You will find that each session is enjoyable yet challenging. I would recommend Him to anyone from the beginner all the way to the more advanced student. If you have the desire to learn the art of music then you will enjoy His instruction. I couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Aaron C.

Laurel, MD

About Aaron

In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student.

I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus. I've performed on cruise ships, in clubs and bars, and in concert halls.

As a drummer I'm well versed in Jazz, Rock, Latin, Funk, and Orchestral/Band Percussion. We will focus on solid time, technique, and musicality.

On the piano we develop solid fundamentals through reading and technical exe
rcises, a grounding in theory, and an understanding of musical structure. You will learn to play from a fake book, play with a band, and improvise. I will also equip you with the tools to write your own music.

Happy to teach students both drums and piano. We can do this as a split one hour lesson, or alternate weeks. We will also work on ensemble playing by playing together.

NOTE: I CANNOT PROVIDE IN HOME TEACHING WITHIN MONTGOMERY COUNTY
