Barry M.

Washington, DC

About Barry

Hello! A little about me... I have a Bachelors Degree in Music, 15 years of performing experience, and 10 years of teaching experience. I would love to share what I've learned to help you find your authentic sound. I try to approach each student individually vs treating everyone the same, catering to learning styles and willingness to learn. I hope to see you soon!

*** Lesson Details ***
I think everyone is born with the capacity to sing, with their own unique voice. I think often times we "get in our own way" and hold ourselves back from truly realizing our potential. I would love to
help find your true voice so that you can do anything you want, whether it's singing in the shower or in front of thousands of adoring fans at Carnegie Hall!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice rooms with upright pianos.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If there is no piano, we can work from the mp3 player or a cd player and make it work!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Jazz voice, improvisation (scatting) and Broadway singing. I am also trained in Acting.

Barry is a gifted and talented individual who urges his students to step out the box. If you ever receive and opportunity to work with Barry understand you'll be put to a challenge and be expected to challenge yourself. I was able to experience and learn many things in Theater acting, Speaking voice, Singing and Music theory and I could never be more grateful for everything he passed on to me as knowledge .

Barry is a very skilled and patient teacher. He has helped me with the confidence I needed to embrace my natural voice tone. I have regained a love for singing after working with such an inspirational being. I thought that after smiling I have don't irreparable damage to my vocal chords but Barry showed me that was not the case! For that I am forever great fun! Anyone who is really serious about singing should have just one class with Barry and your ideas about the craft will be immediately transformed!

Scott G.

Silver Spring, MD

the first thing I do is find the vocal range of the student and let them become aware of how low and how high they are actually capable of singing. Next through proper breathing and singing techniques we learn how to expand the range to it's full capacity using songs they know and finding the right key for the student

Scott is kind, easy-going, knowledgeable, versatile, encouraging, patient, and quite talented. Music is his life, and he really enjoys time with students. He has all the equipment one might possibly need, and then some. I'm learning a lot about singing, and about myself, from him. Great guy, great teacher!

I love my lessons with Scott. Prior to 10 months ago, I had not sung one note in public. Strictly a shower singer. With Scott's help in performance, singing, and band leading, I am guest singing with 2 bands in town. Seriously, this is a dream come true! I can speak to, sing, and do things now that weren't even imagined a year ago. I am still learning, and Scott makes that fun. He challenges me because he knows of my goals, but it's done in a positive way. I will likely start learning the ukulele from him. Because of his experience, Scott is a great mentor. He is well respected among his peers, and well respected by me!

Timothy H.

Washington, DC

I specialize in teaching voice with concentrations in proper technique, proper breath control, placement, musicality and knowledge of repertoire in various genres.

About Timothy

I hold a Bachelors of Fine Arts from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. With over 15 years of experience, in both piano and voice, I've had to opportunity to perform, both domestically and internationally, with such great acts as Peter Nero and The Philly Pops, The Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra, and many others. I served as lead singer, pianist, and co-songwriter for a number of independent bands covering numerous genres including, but not limited to, Jazz, Pop, Rock, Acoustic, and A Capella.

Since moving to Washington DC, I've immersed myself within the local music communit
y playing a handful of group and solo acts. I currently maintain a home music studio well equipped with musical instruments and music technology. I'm constantly practicing, writing, and recording to improve myself as an artist.

My teaching style is unique and individualized to each student. I set personalized goals to make every lesson a success, and I push my students to get the most out of themselves just like I do myself. I'm always enthusiastic and humor driven to create a personable learning environment for students of any age. Music is my life, and I'm so thrilled to have the opportunity to share my greatest passion with the hope that my students, too, will fall in love with music!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson environment is laid back and stress-free. I like my students to feel inspired and encouraged as they begin, and/or continue, their music education. I introduce fun and innovative ways to build students' musicianship and creativity while retaining classic methods to develop strong technique and proper performance and practice habits.

For beginners, we'll be exploring the basics of either piano, or voice, while focusing on proper technique, basic theory, and a solid skill set. Within 3-6 months, my students are able to read music and understand the language of it.

For intermediate-advanced, we'll focus on building musicianship and skill sets by furthering studies in music theory, varying styles of repertoire, proper techniques that will greatly improve your piano and/or voice abilities, songwriting, improvisation, and live performance skills. We can also cover the basics of recording so you not only have tangible evidence of your improvement over time, but the know-how to create your own music!

I ask that my students come prepared to every lesson with the motivation and commitment to learn something new each week! Lessons are a fun and creative way to discover yourself as an artist and a person, so let's get started!!
