About Heather
Having begun teaching lessons while still in high school, I went on to major in music and graduated with a degree in sacred music in 1999. Since earning that degree, I have accompanied for three separate vocal music CDs using original improvised piano accompaniments. I have played sacred music in church for 25 years and have a great deal of experience improvising with hymns. I have taught piano, flute, choir, and general music at a private academy for over ten years. Having recently earned my Masters in Education, I enjoy discovering students' strengths and seeking to shape them into the best musicians and individuals they can be.

Mrs. Ross has a passion for perfected technic. She takes time on making sure things are done properly and is very encouraging along the way. She is a wonderful teacher with a bright and helpful attitude. You never need fear asking a dumb question to her. She is always very thorough in her answers. She makes learning fun and the students want to learn.

I took piano lessons from Heather Ross in high school before going on to take a piano pedagogy major in college. Her teaching was a definite help in preparation for my college studies, and I learned much from her during my time studying under her. Heather is a knowledgeable and skilled teacher who understands what it takes to bring a student from one level to the next.

Hello, My name is Michael and Im excited to meet you! I've been teaching private & Professional lessons since 1997! I love helping students accomplish their goals like, getting into college, hit auditions, and more, but above all I love to inspire the love of Music and Performance Arts!

I use a number of established teaching methods to instruct my studies as well as my own methods that I have perfected through my 18+ years of teaching. My philosophy is that
it is important to stay fluid and adjust to each student's learning style to create successful students at any age from 3 to 100!

My only goal is to help you reach yours!

I teach Suzuki Method when appropriate, as well as popular scholastic methods when needed for a school band program however, I mostly teach to the student. Each student gets a unique and personalized experience tailored to their specific goals and needs using a variety of available materials, but above all I strive to teach fun when learning the arts!

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!

I received a B.A. in Liberal Studies/Music from Cal State San Bernardino, Ca. I have played in weddings and mostly non-profit organizations, especially at Christmas time. I love Christmas carols, Classical, Jazz, Polkas, and standard tunes. I enjoy most genres. I am looking forward to meeting you and getting started playing the accordion.

Grey hung in there even with all my connection problems. Then he taught me accordian information that I had been thinking about, but never knew the answer to before, because I have been out of the picture for so long. It was just the right timing from my 5 previous lessons. I am looking forward to my next lesson. I just need to get in enough practice time. My learning curve is in my hands now. Until the next lesson.
Thanks Grey

My name is Al Philipp, used to serve in ministry with Grey and what an awesome gift God has given him in music. Grey would play all kinds of music and my favorites were the old hymns and the contemporary Christian music, but when he broke out the polka music it would get your heart pumpin and your feet jumpin. Yes Grey is very good with the accordion with a great personality to go along with his teaching ability. I highly recommend Grey if you are wanting to learn this instrument.

I have a Bachelors of Music Composition from Brooklyn College, and I'm currently finishing a Masters degree. I've been playing music professionally for 27 years, spanning a wide range of styles. My knowledge of different genres gives me a unique perspective for teaching.
I've been entertaining at the piano for 15 years, playing guitar for 25+, and began my musical career primarily as a drummer with a variety of bands. I'm classically trained as a percussionist, and I studied jazz piano at the University of Kentucky before finishing my degree at Brooklyn College.

I can make the piano, drumset, or guitar approachable for traditional and non-traditional students alike. I offer a strong foundation in technique, theory, and musicality, and can teach you popular music styles and improvisation as well. I look forward to working
with you!

About Caroline
I am a composer, conductor, arranger, and flautist with a BA in Music from American University in Washington, DC! I have been playing the flute for over 15 years and have had almost 10 years of formal composition and theory training thus far.

I teach beginning and intermediate flute players of all ages and in all styles! Since my primary background is in composition, I am able to create custom exercises and arrangements of the music in which my students are interested. This includes music from TV shows, videogames, Top 40 hits, and everything in between! Building confidence while enjoying practicing and skill-building on the instrument are my goals. I am also willing to collaborate with school band and orchestra teachers to further enhance a student's learning and performance.

I also teach beginning music theory and songwriting! As
a poet, songwriter, and composer, I want to share what I've learned about improvisation, refining raw ideas, and getting ideas from one's mind onto the page. Creative expression is a tremendously important part of life, and understanding the foundations of music can help us appreciate and interact with it on a higher, more fulfilling level!

My studio is in Hilltop, Virginia Beach. I am comfortable teaching a variety of styles and ages - nothing is too "out there" for me! I look forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve your goals!

I had the pleasure of performing Caroline's original composition Onwards, Ever Against the Snow both for recital, as well as jury boards. The score is written for piano and alto saxophone and is written as a programmatic work featuring a Beethoven-ian hero. The piece received glowing reviews from internationally acclaimed composers and applied musicians at both the recital and jury boards. Take lessons with Caroline confidently!

I worked with Caroline for her senior composition recital, performing a solo violin piece that she wrote. She was incredibly easy and pleasant to work with; we had several rehearsals together leading up to the recital, and she was always patient, kind, helpful, and clear when helping me interpret her piece. She was very professional to work with in terms of scheduling rehearsals as well, and was always open and prompt when communicating about scheduling. Working with Caroline was extremely enjoyable and easy!

Amy was great! She was great to work with on scheduling and was very good about keeping in touch prior to the lesson letting me know we were still on for the scheduled time. She really knew how to teach well and was thorough making sure my daughter understood what needed to be done during the week before the next lesson. We are very happy with her and look forward to learning a lot.
