Olga is very passionate, patient and persistent voice teacher who strives to bring the best in her students. My daughters 10 and 12 started taking lessons with Olga an year ago. We saw phenomenal difference in both of their singing abilities in just few classes. Moreover my 10 year old daughter passed with flying colors ‘The certificate of merit -level 3’ exam and got selected to sing at the MTAC convention. Thank you Olga for your persistence and hats off to your patience. If there is tiny bit of constructive feedback it would be to seek help on organization skills, but being a mom myself I totally can discount that for your caliber of music.

I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.

Outstanding instructor, professionally gifted, helpful, patient and personable. I was fortunate to have found Elisabeth to teach my 9 year old son how to play the violin. Her teaching style was a perfect match for him and she was able to keep him motivated to play and improve and also achieve his goal of making the junior orchestra for his school.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music with a major in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught students, teenagers, adult and small children as young as 5 years old. My teaching is focused on stylistic piano playing (chord playing, improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 years with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I certainly welcome piano training for beginners as early as preparatory level. Digital piano and digital hammond organ are available at my house for piano tutoring should you
choose to come to my location.

My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well.

I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian.

I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics.

Working with Hadi is a true pleasure. He has an immense amount of knowledge and experience to boot. Hadi is extremely easy to work with and has tons of patience while in the lesson. He has a keen ability to analyze where you are as a player and build a personalized plan to reach your goals. I highly recommend him as a teacher for pursuing jazz piano as well as other contemporary styles.

Chloe K - February 7, 2018
Mr. Hadi is a very patient and knowledgeable piano teacher. My son definitely enjoys learning piano and music theory with him. I can see that Mr. Hadi keeps a progress chart for each of his students,. My son is just a beginner level student, but he still gets personalized content from Mr. Hadi.

My goal is not to show off my son's piano skill at family gathering, but to encourage him appreciate and enjoy music. Thanks to Mr. Hadi for helping me reaching this goal.

Velisia C - February 11, 2018
It was my first piano learning lesson, and Hadi is the greatest teacher. As an adult, I thought it will be hard to understand the material but Hadi gave a very good explanation. Quick responses, and absolutely great value for a private lesson. He is so patient. Worth it!!!

Chris D - February 23, 2018
Hadi Sumoro is an excellent teacher, and an even better player. As a teacher, he's patient, knowledgable, and provides excellent advice that helps you develop your skills. And as a player, he is as good as it gets. He can play just about anything. Best was that he takes the time to speak with you and ask what kind of atmosphere you want to create with music, and then does exactly what was asked.

A bit about me; I am from the Philadelphia area and went to college in Pittsburgh at Duquesne University graduating with a double major in Logistics & International Business plus a minor in Spanish. I have spent a summer in both Peru and Argentina to better my understanding of the language. Learning a language can be a full time job, and any chance I can get, I seize the opportunity to practice with natives.

About Raghad
I am a known Syrian actress, I have a Bachelor degree in acting and I was a teacher's assistant acting in the Higher Institute of Dramatic Arts in Syria for six years, that is why I have teaching skills. And with both my teaching skills and love for Arabic language I decided to be an Arabic tutor four years ago. I have a very good experience in Arabic tutoring both in Lebanon and the United States of America.

I arrived to the United States of America recently, and this is a great thing because my Arabic is still fresh and strong. I try my best not to use English during my classes to help students learn as much as they can, and to do so I love my lessons to be challenging but at the same time full of fun and energy. I use my experience as an actress to deliver language in a creative way. while taking a lesson with me you are not only
learning language but also you are learning how to have a perfect pronunciation and to know how to improve your Arabic speech skills.

I give an unconventional Arabic lessons with a lot of activities such as cooking Arabic food with my students, watching Arabic movies and discuss it and many other activities related to Arabic language and culture. With children I use drama games and games in general to make learning Arabic a fun thing to do. I try my best to make my classes full of passion and enthusiasm. I am currently a fellow teacher with GLN (Global Languages Network), GLN is an NGO located in Washington DC. I also give Private Arabic tutor both in Virginia and DC for children and adults.

I chose to tutor Arabic not because it was my specialization at university but because I love Arabic, I really enjoy tutoring Arabic but what makes me continue is my students feed back, and the feeling that they are enjoying my class, and the moment I lose this is the moment when I quit tutoring.

Raghad is a great Arabic teacher. Since taking lessons with her, my Arabic speaking skills have improved beyond my expectations. My vocabulary of the Syrian dialect has also increased which is further enhancing my speaking and listening skills. I would recommend Raghad to anyone who wants to learn the Syrian dialect or to improve their overall Arabic skills
