First instructor I've ever had and I've got to say Nate is everything I was hoping for. Makes learning a fun and engaging experience and is very patient. I have no doubt I wouldn't be as far as I am today had I not decided to have him in my instructor. Highly recommended.
Jaclyn K.
Knowledgeable. Patient. Supportive. Kind. Nate obviously loves teaching piano. My first lesson was wonderful. He takes the anxiety away while helping me play better.

Tony was awesome. This was my first ever lesson, despite having "played" for many years - Tony was friendly and gentle in his approach to showing me all my bad technique and habits and how to correct them. I'm looking forward to many more lessons and growing my ability through his guidance!
Bonnie
Tony is an excellent instructor. His style of teaching emphasizes clear instruction, valuable feedback and attainable goals within a friendly and calm environment. The pieces he chooses for study are appropriately challenging and musically enjoyable. The in-home lessons were very convenient and he was professional in all respects. I recommend him highly!

Rachel is absolutely wonderful! My daughter is 6 and has a speech delay. She's been taking lessons with Rachel for 3 months. At first she was very shy and wouldn't sing. Now she hums the exercises throughout the week in between lessons and asks when she will see Rachel. I would say one of Rachel's greatest gifts is meeting the student where they are and keeping the lesson fun & exciting!
AK
Rachel is such a warm and encouraging teacher. My daughter who was mostly a shy girl was very comfortable with her from the first class itself. She has not only taught her many songs, but also encouraged her into love for singing, which is so valuable. My daughter can easily sing with confidence in a room full of people ! Her focus and singing has greatly improved.
In fact this is our second time back with Rachel, we had to stop for some reason, now we are back again !
I would recommend Rachel to anyone !
Elsa
Rachel is a great teacher. I loved how she interacted with my daughter. My daughter went from beginners to playing current songs on the piano. Rachel knew how draw out my daughters skills, challenging her, so that she can grow as a pianist. Rachel was always patient, and curious with her. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

I love teaching students the concepts and fundamental theories associated with music making. Mastering the foundations of music theory and ear training can help students have a better understanding and appreciation for what they are doing with their individual instruments. In lessons, it is my goal for each student to be intrigued and find music theory interesting, while having fun improving their aural skills. I have worked with elementary students being introduced to musical concepts for the first time, as well as high school and college age advanced students fulfilling degree requirements or AP exams.

Erin is a kind and compassionate woman as well as a terrific flutist. I am very fortunate to work with her!
Tatiana, flutist
I am an accomplished flutist and teacher myself - and over the years I have seen many fine teachers and players. Not many people can truly be considered experts in both, and Erin definitely demonstrates her fine artistry and intimate knowledge of flute pedagogy time and again. I have witnessed her perform in both capacities, and any student studying under her should feel at ease, knowing they will have a top notch education.
Hailey
Erin makes lessons exciting and fun. She always has an answer to my questions, and brings enthusiasm and energy to each lesson. She helped me master my scales, and I have improved my sound greatly, She has helped me to love the flute!

"Ms Melody is a great teacher. Her teaching method has helped and guided my 13 year old daughter to read music confidently. She has a unique way of strengthening the musical foundation in such a way that the student will keep engaged and focused. When my daughter joined the recital for the first time, it has exceeded our expectation. It was done professionally. The duet pieces are outstanding. We are sad that she has to move. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a music teacher in DC."

"Sign up for classes with John. Just do it, and you won't regret it.

Whatever the opposite of musically-gifted is, that is what I am. I'm an adult beginner in the truest sense of the word - never read sheet music, couldn't hold a beat to save my life, and hadn't played an instrument. EVER. That's why I'm still amazed that I've learned to play a couple of simple songs after a few lessons with John - it's a great achievement on his part!

John has the patience of a saint and a great ability to teach. If I don't understand a concept or have difficulty contorting my fingers to hold a certain chord, he shows me a different way and can break it down to simpler terms. He's really a great teacher. On top of that, he's laid back, approachable, amiable, and very understanding of my busy work schedule. He makes sure I leave each lesson with enough homework to practice and gives me constructive criticism to work on my technique. Like another reviewer said, John is really worth his weight in gold!!"
