Yana H.

Fairfax, VA

About Yana

My teaching experience includes students between the ages of 8 and 70. I believe in the individual approach and decide what music books and methods to use and recommend after the first few lessons with the student. Everyone learns differently!
Flute lessons can be fun, educational and helpfull. Playing the flute is a great skill that lets you appreciate and express music. It also enhances your capability to focus and the quickness of your mind since you think of a few different things simultaneously when playing the instrument. And the fun part - well you can play your favorite song, compose
something yourself or have fun playing duets with me or fellow flute students.

Tasha L.

Alexandria, VA

About Tasha

As a classically trained pianist, I focus on a solid foundation of the "basics," but also branch into other styles the student expresses interest in pursuing. I teach all ages, levels, and abilities. I focus on nurturing each student's unique talents and developing a positive and lifelong love for making music.

For those with pre-K children, I also offer:
Private Lessons: the WunderKeys program for a head start in music, math, and life!
Group Music Lessons: KiddyKeys - Make Every Child A Star!

*** About the Instructor ***

Tasha graduated from the University of California, Irvine
in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance under the tutelage of Nina Scolnik. She has worked as an accompanist and private music teacher in Long Beach and Orange County, and recently relocated to Alexandria, Virginia. Tasha is a member of the Virginia Music Teachers Association, the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association, and of the Music Teachers National Association.

She has been a member of the National Guild of Piano Teachers, the California Association of Professional Music Teachers, and served on her local Long Beach branch's board for the Music Teachers Association of California as 2nd Vice President in charge of professional development and programming. She regularly attends annual teaching conferences to continue to improve and enhance her teaching.

Tasha is currently writing her thesis to complete her Master of Arts degree in Musicology from California State University, Long Beach, focusing on female French Baroque composers.

In addition to almost ten years as a private music instructor, her teaching experience includes lecturer for college theory courses and studies in early childhood development at Long Beach City College, where she also holds an Associate of Arts degree in classical saxophone. Though her passion is classical music, she encourages her students to explore all styles and creative interests, and most importantly to develop a love for music.

I think that Joel Meltzer is an excellent trumpet teacher. He is both professional and personable. He was able to quickly assess my current skill level and determine where I needed to start for my first lesson without making me feel insecure in any way.

I look forward to getting more competent with each succeeding lesson.

3 Things Every Guitarist Needs To Know About Songwriting
Writing a song can be one of the most satisfying experiences you'll have with your instrument! Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares three things every guitarist should know about writing a song on guitar... As a teacher, having you develop the ability to express yourself is my number one goal. Playing guitar solos is one form of personal expression. Writing songs is another. If you've never written a song, you might think of songwriting as something that only a few special people can do.

Introduction to Proper Guitar Posture
As a beginner, proper guitar posture is one of the most important beginning steps before you learn about chords, picking, and strumming. Sadly, learning proper guitar posture is often an afterthought to learning to play.
