Aleksis B. Germantown, MD

About Aleksis

My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do. My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis. I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in ...

Aleksis is a good Teacher. He is very understanding, patient, conscientious and professional. I have medical needs : Seizures. Once when I seized just seconds before starting the lesson, he was very empathetic, understanding and kind. My Parents are also very happy with the Company he is employed with . Our experience with "Take lessons" has been fantastic so far. Their (the staff that we have talked to various times ) P.R. is excellent and they are prompt in sending and finding the tutors.

Aleksis has been the best teacher (in any subject) that I've ever had! He's very calm and patient, but also stays focused on teaching. Every time I have a question he has a good answer, proving to me that he is very knowledgeable.

Most importantly the results of his instruction have been excellent. I've made more progress under his tutelage in two months than I've made over a couple of years on my own.

An excellent teacher and very affable, I can only think of good things to write about Mr. Aleksis!

Learning at my age!

I started singing backup vocals in a band and at the age of 57 it's not easy. Alexis has been great. He is very patient, kind and encouraging. I enjoy our lessons and feel he is getting the best of my abilities.
I'm having a great time.

Helped me find my passion

In middle school, I really didn't have very much direction and I was afraid of going to high school. To make friends, I decided to go out for one of the high school's audition choirs, and though I didn't make it into the elite choir, I made the women's choir. I was happy, but I was afraid to sing out even in front of the other girls in the choir. I didn't have any confidence in my voice and most of them knew how to read music and sight-sing. I didn't. I started taking lessons with Ms. Jenni in the fall of my freshman year in the hopes of catching up with the other girls and eventually auditioning into the elite choir before my senior year.

That was three years ago. I now read music and sight sing and have much more confidence in my voice. I made the elite choir at my school in the spring of my sophomore year-- and in my junior year we performed at the White House! Jenni has encouraged me to participate in competitions and summer music programs that have helped me grow even more. I am seriously considering majoring in music in college after I graduate in 2014.

Jenni has been such a wonderful teacher. She really "gets me" and her encouragement has helped me find my passion. She's always positive and helpful and treats each student like they are her only one. I just love her and I will miss her when I go to college--because without her I really don't know where I would have ended up.

I really appreciated the way Jenni made me feel welcome and comfortable through her outgoing attitude and encouragement. She also made a point to relate to me on a personal level which was very important to me as well and contributed to my comfortability and progress. I definitely plan on taking lessons from her again in the future!

David L. Frederick, MD

About David

As a lover of music, my biggest joy is the bass. I have a unique approach to the instrument, which I convey through both my playing and my teaching. I consider the bass a vocal, melodic instrument, and in any genre I'm playing, I seek to approach the bass not as simply a supporting actor to the lead, as it is so often portrayed, but as a counter-melody, the left hand to the right hand, complimentary but equal. The general theme that informs my playing is harmony. I seek to create the most beautiful and musically pleasing counterpoint to the lead, whether I'™m accompanying a vocalist, a jazz combo, a guitarist, or playing in the bass section of an orchestra. Coming from a unique combination of genres, I am able to bring the complete spectrum of music into my playing and teaching. My ...

Yulia is a very professional, capable, and patient teacher, who produces results. She has a deep knowledge of the fundamentals of singing and what is takes to build a solid foundation of a vocal technique. Furthermore, she is able to demonstrate and reinforce important points with her own voice and that helps a lot. I definitely recommend Yulia as a voice teacher!!
