Chevy Chase, MD

Classical music-focused, fun and relaxed environment, experienced teacher with top conservatory background

About Jessica
Jessica moved to the Chevy Chase/Bethesda area in 2009, having grown up and gone to school in New York and Ohio. She loves the area, and she and her husband are thrilled to be putting down roots in the community. As a performer, Jessica has traveled around the world, but throughout her career teaching has been one of her most important focuses. "As a relative newcomer to the DC area, growing my private studio has been a great way to get involved in the community. My teaching style is individualized, but I always try to include two important things: building a strong basic skill set, and developing creativity."

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether your goal is to make it into All-State, give a solo recital, play tunes at family gatherings, or just try something new for the very first time, I will help you succeed and have a good time along
the way.

In my view, the most interesting thing about performing music is that it is one of the few activities that engages both the left and the right brain at the same time. With that in mind, my teaching places equal importance on developing strong technique, and developing creativity. Students learn all the basics of music, and also spend time developing strong ensemble skills and strong background knowledge of style and repertoire, so that they can enjoy music in all kinds of settings, all their lives.

Knowing from experience how "boring" it can be to learn by rote, I combine technical work with fun time playing duets together, improvising, and exploring a wide variety of styles and genres of music. After all, there is no experience so motivating as hearing a new piece that you HAVE to learn to play yourself!

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in either living room or upstairs office; Steinway baby grand piano in living room;

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect piano students to have daily access to either a piano or a keyboard with 88 full-sized, weighted keys. Bass or cello students must have their own bass or cello.

*** Specialties ***
classical, baroque, renaissance

I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Arlington, VA

View Full Profile

Andrew is a gifted teacher who prides himself on making the student feel comfortable, no matter their level of experience or ability. This approach has worked successfully for many of his students, allowing them to be more open and understanding of some of the many concepts introduced and practiced while learning the piano.

Andrew is also very adaptable, understanding that each student is different, responding to unique learning styles and approaches that suits them better than others. But one thing remains the same, and that is the ability to enjoy the work as well as feel clear and measurable progress. This is any student's ultimate goal, and Andrew has a proven track record of success when it comes to learning the instrument.

Andrew will work with you to establish clear goals, if you don't already possess them, and be a steady and comforting guide for you on your journey - no matter how far you intend to go.

About Andrew
Andrew started playing piano at the tender age of 3. His mom wanted him to spend his endless energy on something artistic so she started him on piano lessons. Very early on it was clear Andrew had a natural, unique ability to connect with the piano. He played in school bands throughout grade school and began performing around DC in high school. While Andrew also plays guitar, drums, and bass, the piano has remained his first love and primary instrument.

At the age of 17 Andrew left DC and started college at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. Andrew studied Jazz Piano but also led big bands, wrote and arranged music, produced and engineered. Shifting from Jazz to Rock in his early 20s, Andrew joined the band Ambulance LTD with which he played all over NYC and the US as well as internationally.

Upon ret
urning to New York from a hectic performance schedule, Andrew began assisting younger students at The New York Piano Academy—helping them to develop their playing skills, as well as their composing and arranging pursuits. The experience exposed his innate ability to build students’ talents through patience and encouragement, consistently taking them farther than they thought they could go. Andrew discovered his passion for teaching and began working with students of all ages, from 3 year-old children to seniors. As a teacher, Andrew focuses on making learning enjoyable while teaching all types of music—pop, rock, jazz, classical, and even Broadway. He tailors his programs to the students and teaches them not only how to play, but also how to hear, enjoy and love music.

Andrew is a gifted teacher and musician. I was beyond 50 when I started lessons with him, sure there was no way I could actually learn to play the piano. His patience, kindness and expertise overcame my fears and deficit of innate talent. I love his lessons and I enjoy practicing and I can actually play a few tunes!!! He is great at mixing things up - interweaving melodies and theory - and creatively finding new approaches to overcome obstacles.

Want to learn piano but don't know where to start? Interested in giving those piano lessons from when you were a kid another shot? I'm your gal! With 12+ years of piano training under my belt, I can provide you with a fun and simple crash-course that allows you to adopt a jack-of-all-trades mentality, which ranges from following what's on the page to "faking it."

About Allison
Thanks for stopping by! My name is Allison, and I'm a student with a passion for music!

I am a classically trained vocalist, pianist, and composer who has been studying music for 16 years. My abilities in ear-training and sight-reading have given me the perfect springboard to experiment with different musical techniques, and I have spent my time as a music student developing my own jack-of-all-trades style.

Piano students can expect to learn beginner tools such as basic sight-reading techniques and proper finger coordination to finding exciting ways to "fake" your way through a piece. I aim to give students an adaptable tool box that allows them to feel confident in multiple facets of piano-playing.

Vocal students can expect to approach their singing with a musician's ear, and gain the confidence to nail their next big audition
or voice recital. I aim to provide a leg up in sight-reading and ear training to give the student an advantage over their peers.

Many piano teachers begin teaching you how to read music before you actually learn how to play. I work backwards. My goal is to get you playing, so that when you start reading music, it makes more sense! I want to teach you to play piano in a way that is not dry and boring. YOU SHOULD HAVE FUN! Also, don't you want to improvise? I'll never understand how some people have had piano lessons for years and years and can't play Happy Birthday without sheet music. With 15+ years of experience tickling the ivories, and 4 years of working as a professional music educator, my methods get you enjoying the feeling of playing with freedom. :]

About D'Andrew
Feel like you're stuck in a rut with your piano playing?
There are probably hundreds of songs that you want to learn to play on piano, and you're probably using outdated methods to learn to play them without even knowing it! That's why I'm here, so you can discover an entirely different way of learning how to play the piano. Don't spend another seven years learning how to play happy birthday! I am looking forward to working with you and showing you everything that I have acquired over 15+ years of playing piano.

Classically trained pianist and youth soccer coach. In my free time, I enjoy reading, composing music or playing sports.

I will make sure to communicate and understand the specific goals my potential student may have and diligently work towards them.

About Saad
I am an aspiring singer, songwriter, pianist, recording artist and sound designer. i am currently studying at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every one has a ability to succeed; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

Are you a complete beginner, or are you looking to dust off the keys and pick up where you left off? With over five years of teaching experience and a lifetime of playing, I provide customized private lessons based on each student's skill, pace, and learning style. An age appropriate curriculum is chosen to maximize both learning and enjoyment. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome! During lessons, students will learn proper hand techniques, artistic expression, and music theory while mastering songs from classical, folk, jazz, and pop genres. If you're interested, send me a message!

About Christine
I have been teaching the piano since 2010 after graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. My goal as a teacher is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their own musical journey, whether they pursue the piano for the rest of their lives, switch to other instruments, or decide to pursue other interests.

I started studying the piano when I was four and began participating in piano competitions in the 5th grade. When I was in 8th grade, I won first place in a concerto competition and was able perform my piece before a live audience, while accompanied by an orchestra. That opportunity helped me realize that I love sharing music with others, be they students, fellow musicians, or members of an audience. Throughout the years, I have pursued this love by playing the p
iano for/with friends and family, singing in choirs, and playing the violin in orchestras and ensembles. While attending the University of Maryland, I was a member of the Gamer Symphony Orchestra, where I sung with the choir and led the soprano and alto sections in rehearsal. Today, I also work as a piano accompanist and church musician, where I sing with the choir and play the violin, in addition to playing the piano.
