Chris H.

Waldorf, MD

I have a degree in music with a teaching certificate. I have been teaching cello privately for 10 years. Depending on the age of the child we will start with either Essential Elements or Suzuki cello book one. They will start with proper positioning and plucking. Once they have 8 notes down, we start bowing. As we progress, we will be doing scales, and etudes.

About Chris

I have been teaching private violin for over 20 years, and private viola/cello for about 10. I have taught in Charles and St. Mary's County Public schools. I am a member of American Strings Teacher's Association, National Association for Music Educators (Maryland Music Educators Association), and the Music Teachers National Association (Music Teachers Association of Charles County). As a teacher, I'm very student oriented. We move at your pace. The more you practice, the faster we move. I do encourage learning to read music, but I use multiple ways of teaching to reach my students. Everyone learns in a different way. My primary job is to see you achieve your goals in relation to your instrument. I also encourage that you take every opportunity to perform. There are many groups in the ...

Excellent

Ms. Heins is an amazing teacher. I have been learning Violin from her for over two years now and I love it. She explains things clearly and if I am stuck on a piece she helps me out. She encourages me to do my best and participate in different competitions and activities. I love playing violin with her.

It's evident she cares for her students....very patient with my daughter, my daughter has been under her care for about two yrs now, even sparking her interest to play another string instrument!

I cannot say how appreciative our family is of Ms. Heins and would certainly recommend her.

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Samantha H.

Alexandria, VA

Samantha’s focus is not only on the technical aspect of cello playing, and practice strategies, but how to make the music come alive. She believes in using an approach which helps students understand how to let their bodies work for them, not against, in a way which produces a full, rich tone with no strain. Understanding that not everyone learns the same way, she strives to discover each individual student’s learning style and present materials in a way that makes sense to each student. Samantha is registered as a Suzuki teacher for books 1-3 and teaches using both Suzuki and traditional methods. Her studio is located in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA.

About Samantha

Samantha H. began her cello studies at the age of eight in Sacramento, CA. She later earned a Bachelor of Music degree from California State University Sacramento where she studied with Andrew Luchansky. She then went on to complete a Master of Music degree and Graduate Performance Diploma from Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, MD, studying with Jeffrey Solow, Alan Stepansky, and David Hardy. Samantha has performed in Italy, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and England, as well as in the U.S. She attended Kneisel Hall Chamber Music School and Festival in Blue Hill, ME and has played in cello and chamber music master classes with Steven Doane, Mihaly Virizlay, Ronald Copes (of the Juilliard Quartet), the Alexander Quartet, and Seymour Lipkin. She has performed with indie folk ...

We met Ms. Katie about 2 months ago. During this time my son has been very happy about going to his piano class every week and following up at home with his practice and assignments. Ms. Katie is very knowledgeable, and friendly. I really like the structure of her lessons. Very happy student and mom here :)
