I am a dedicated lifelong fan of the acoustic guitar and it's music. Flatpicking a la Tony Rice, fingerstyle moves from James Taylor or Mississippi John Hurt, or strumming great songs from Taylor Swift, The Eagles... this is all music I have loved and learned and shared with my students. I am also here to help you learn the great acoustic guitar parts your bring to the lesson from your favorite artists, or to find your own voice on this great instrument.

Learning an instrument can open your mind to new insights in life, and just like with languages, will be much easier to comprehend at a younger age. If you're looking for violin lessons for your child, look no further. As a young person, I believe that I will not only be able to connect with younger students like no other, but also teach and instruct with more than nine years' experience in both orchestra and chamber orchestra across Fairfax and Loudoun County, all at an affordable price. With Superb Violin Lessons, your child can learn a beautiful instrument, have fun, and maybe even find themselves sitting in the first chair.

I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a Master's Degree in Reading and Curriculum.

Piano is a fun instrument to play for all ages and can easily fit into any style of music. In my piano lessons, you can expect to learn songs, healthy technique, sightreading, and ear training. For online students, my technology set up allows you to view the keys I press on my keyboard in real time, so you'll have a visual guide. Please use the "Ask a Question" feature or book lessons to get started. Looking forward to working with you!

My son is in 10th grade and has been studying Saxophone with Ian for almost 4 years. Ian is great on teaching, nice to student, always responsive to questions. Highly recommended.
Yuka O.
Me and my 12-year-old son started saxophone two years ago together. Ian had a great guide to us who had never played the instrument. My growth is slow due to age issues, (of course satisfied) but my son's growth was great. My son now has a great deal of confidence as a jazz player, and he was able to work on other things positively too. We met Ian then became more into music and jazz. He is patient and will tell you until we can do. Ian is mainly jazz, but he is also very familiar with brass band and classical saxophone too. He is a working musician who do live performance, gig, and compose in various places. He loves music from the heart, his solo is so beatuiful. Ian's lessons has changed our life. We really grateful for giving us his time.

I don’t teach accent reduction—I teach North American Dialect Acquisition. It’s not the same thing.

“Accent Reduction” feels demeaning to students I’ve worked with. Accents are simply speaking someone else’s language by the rules of your own (Trevor Noah). I don’t want to rob you of your own language; I want to help you master the rules of mine.

I share tools and techniques for speaking with the grammar, tone, and character of a locally-born US citizen with an emphasis on midwest and northwest dialects (typically regarded a "clean" or "flat" North American sound, like a news broadcaster). We approach it analytically, physically, and emotionally. Language is a full-body experience and I seek to honor your culture while adding a new skill to your collection.

I developed and applied this novel approach with two different cohorts of adult students at Tacoma Community College’s Internationally Educated Nurses program. It helped them pass their TOEFL exams and earn jobs in the United ...
