Susan G.

Falls Church, VA

About Susan

I was a piano major at UNI and received a B.A. in English with a minor in music. I taught music for several years in Iowa and Pennsylvania. I have an M.A. in Reading, which has been invaluable in analyzing learning styles and teaching to each student's strengths. I have been teaching piano for over twenty five years and I'm also active in church music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus on learning the foundations of music as well as the technical skills needed to play piano. I gear the instruction towards finding patterns that make a piece more than a collection of notes and, thus, easier to
learn.
I've used various curriculum: Alfred, Bastien, Faber, etc. and try to supplement materials with music that is appealing to the individual student.
I am very flexible with scheduling and try to make each lesson as stress-free and interesting as possible.
In a few months a student should be able to read music and play simple melodies and chords.

*** Specialties ***
I teach classical as well as pop, providing a broad foundation that allows the student to play any style of music.

Attentive Instructon

I am an adult student and have taken lessons in the past and am starting again. I have enjoyed the personal and attentive instruction given. Susan sits right by the piano and watches every movement. Teachers I have had in the past have not done this. She provides supplemental material that I need. She is always very friendly, kind, patient and has a great deal of professional knowledge. I would recommend her to anyone.

Miles H.

Falls Church, VA

About Miles

Miles was born in Bogota, Colombia, but raised in Annapolis, MD. Early in life, he began to take classical piano lessons, but after 9 years, guitar became his instrument of choice (though he still has a fond appreciation for the piano).

He then went on to graduate from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Professional Music. His time at Berklee has enabled Miles to play in venues all around the Boston/Cambridge area. He has been teaching around NOVA/DC for 3 years.

Miles does his best to make lessons incorporate the music you enjoy listening to in conjunction with the nec
essary theory and technique to do so.

Fun Fact: Two of his guitars are custom built by himself. He often provides students assistance in maintenance of their instrument.

"Musical training is a more potent instrument than any other, because rhythm and harmony find their way into the inner places of the soul." - Plato

I'm a beginning guitar student and have just started taking guitar lessons from Miles. He's very knowledgable, patient, and kind. I haven't quite made "friends" with those strings yet, but with Miles' help, I know I will.

Miles is fantastic!

Miles is great at working with my 11 year old on both what she wants to learn and what she needs to learn; he ensures the right balance of theory and contemporary music to keep her interested. We move a lot and have had other piano teachers over the last several years, but Miles is top notch. His calm demeanor and endless patience is much appreciated in this house! Hope he continues to teach my daughter for years to come.

Gina T.

Annandale, VA

About Gina

I have been a singer for over 15 years and have been a vocal coach for over 5. I had 9 years of vocal training, which I have worked to transition into a teaching style of my own. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre and Vocal Performance. I have a good ear for vocal difficulties and a good assortment of solutions.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, laid back teacher, but I expect focus during the lesson. I would expect practice outside of lessons and for my students to be prepared when coming to the session. I do like to laugh and to make my students feel comfortable. My students
can expect results with range, clarity, technique among others.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, speakers for MP3 players, microphones, recording equipment

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, classical, and pop.

Very professional and knowledgeable. Gina has helped my teen daughter discover her potential, while understanding the delicate balance of constructive instruction and being mindful of a teens self esteem. She also helped my daughter successfully prepare for auditions. I highly recommend her.

My 13-yr old daughter took lessons from Gina for over a year. While my daughter LOVES to sing, she is quite inhibited in front of others. Luckily, Gina is so sweet and approachable, that my daughter was able to relax and focus on singing and developing her talent. What a difference a year makes! My family is so impressed with how far and refined her voice has become. We are moving to Michigan in a couple of weeks. We wish we could take Gina with us!

Brianna S.

Annandale, VA

About Brianna

I am currently pursuing a BM in Trumpet Performance at George Mason University, studying under Professor Phil Snedecor. I have been playing trumpet for 14 years, and have orchestral, wind band, chamber, marching band, and pit orchestra experience. I have been teaching privately since 2012.

It is extremely important to me that my students reach their full potential, being the best musician they can be while still retaining their passion for music. I remember the first time I ever picked up a trumpet; it was one of the most unforgettable experiences.

I emphasize teaching and solidifying f
undamentals while creating a fun and musical environment for my students. I also believe that ear training is imperative in developing musicianship.

I am available to teach both 30 minute and 1 hour long lessons.

Learning trombone from Brianna was a great experience for my son, who is going into 6th grade this year. We wanted him to have a few lessons before starting band in middle school, and Brianna was the perfect person for the job. She taught him the basic skills he would need to succeed in the middle school band, and she really helped him become interested in music.

I loved learning from Brianna. She is the greatest person to learn trumpet from. Her expertise is exceptional, and I truly enjoyed going to see her perform in concerts at George Mason University. It's great to be able to see your teacher perform!

My daughter is 9 and a bit shy - played piano but never flute. Melissa jumped right in on our first lesson, went through the basics, and while doing so assessed her abilities (like ability to read music). Before she left, my daughter was playing some basic notes using the form Melissa taught her. As I write this, she is already practicing on her own after left with some challenging but fun practice. Only the first class, but a great "gut feeling". My wife and I both enjoyed Melissa's kind personality but most importantly our daughter enjoys her. We're optimistic for a great learning experience.

Melissa Thompson has been a colleague of mine for 4+ years now and is an amazing musician! I have had the opportunity to watch her teach countless times and would recommend her to anyone. She is clear, concise, and fun in her lessons and you can definitely hear an improvement right away.
