I work with students from a selection of music theory books to help them understand the fundamentals of music, including note recognition, rhythms, key signatures, scale degrees, chord structures, musical vocabulary and symbols.

About Taryn
I am a University of Hawaii Piano Performance Major with a training emphasis in classical piano. I have taken multiple AMEB piano examinations, as well as performed in various recitals, culminating in an undergraduate music certification. I have been playing for 20 years, working with a variety of musical and performance styles, including individual performance, accompaniment, and musical collaboration. These experiences have given me the skills to tackle and communicate musical themes and ideas to students with a range of learning styles and needs, from beginning to advanced, classical to leisure.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very dependent upon the need of the individual student. I believe that each person learns differently, and different people require unique methods of communication (visual, aural, descriptive), as
well as structure of classes. In addition, I understand that students are hoping to gain different things from learning any instrument. Given this, I really try to cater to what a student wants, and how they learn best. However, I also believe that no student can learn and advance without an understanding of theory and development of technique. I generally use the Piano Adventures curriculum with my beginning students, however for intermediate and advanced students, I prefer to allow more freedom in the pieces that are learned. While studying with me, you can expect to develop technique through the study of classical music, gain an advanced understanding of music theory, and develop the ability to not only play well, but to perform well too!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Yamaha piano in common area w/ seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide the piano or keyboard for practicing. The students should be responsible for getting the proper music books necessary for teaching.

*** Specialties ***
The genre I am most experience with is classical music.

Fairfax, VA

View Full Profile

Experienced in studying applying, and teaching music theory for over 30 years. Scored A+ in music theory classes at GMU. Experienced in making music theory useful for various musical styles.

About Geoff
I played on a toy piano when I was very young, learning a bit of sight reading from my Mother, while listening to classical, jazz, and rock music. When I was 12, I learned guitar and later took private piano lessons from a prominent Philadelphia instructor. After playing in a rock band in high school, I went to college and received my degree in Physics. During this time, I joined a choir, and sang and played guitar in a contemporary vocal group where I became the lead guitarist and vocal arranger, and later became the director. I also played guitar in my church, as well as in a small folk group, performing music of the Beatles, Bacharach, Crosby, Stills, and Nash, and many others. I also played or sung in a number of weddings during my college days.

Upon graduation, I moved to the DC area to work in the engineering field, while s
imultaneously pursuing my music ambition. I studied classical guitar at American University with a student of the great Andres Segovia, and also studied jazz guitar with a former student of a prominent jazz guitarist, Pat Martino. Additionally, I sang in choirs and studied composition privately with a prominent Washington area composer and performer from Catholic University, I also began to teach at an area performing arts academy.

My most long-term experiences in music have been serving in my local church for over 30 years, either playing guitar (acoustic, electric, bass), piano, or arranging vocals in a contemporary worship band. I also started a church choir, and led both choir and small orchestra in a number of special performances. Additionally, I led congregational worship in different scenarios. During this time I also taught students of all ages guitar, piano, and music theory, and have continued to today in helping students to find their musical potential and pursue their musical ambitions.

I have recently retired from my engineering career so I can use my musical gifts in my local church and teach music as a second career. I have completed my second degree at George Mason University, and continue to play with other musicians there. More importantly, I continue to learn how to better teach others of all ages how to grow in all aspects of music-making.

*** Lesson Details ***
Having taught for many years, my approach is flexible and I can adjust my teaching style and/or curriculum to maximize the student's potential for learning at any age. I encourage disciplined practice while working to make learning music an enjoyable experience. Although I specialize in guitar styles, I also teach piano, and can include music theory, sight reading, composition, and how to improvise on any instrument. I have taught improvisation on a number of different instruments such as violin, cello, flute, and clarinet.

Here are some testimonials from present or former students/parents:

"Mr. S. is very earnest; when he gives you a compliment, you can tell he really means it. He's very patient and experienced and skilled and he is willing to take what he's teaching down to my level to help me understand it." Gregory K., age 10
Geoff is a patient and encouraging instructor. He tailored my lessons towards the skills that I needed. He provides the necessary encouragement when the long hours of practice seem impossible to sustain. I could write a book about Geoff's credentials: highly qualified is an understatement. -- Neal B.
Mr. S. is awesome at playing and teaching guitar, and he is nice and helps you. -- Michael B., age 12
œI'm sure I could learn to ˜Play Guitar Today™ using books and videos, but I think I'm on the right track with private one-on-one instruction. “ Linda H.
The guitar lessons are fun, interactive, and instructive. A great way to make learning a delight!“ Gina R., parent

*** Studio Equipment ***
Office at home w/ keyboard and guitars, white board, seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide self-produced instructional material.
Students provide their own instrument and a folder to store instructional material.

*** Specialties ***
I teach any style of guitar, including classical and jazz. I also teach improvisation or "playing by ear" on any instrument; my experience includes piano, violin, cello, clarinet, and flute.
I'm very familiar with 60's music (e.g., Beatles)
I've performed a lot of folk music, rock music, and classical music
I've played classical guitar and in classical and jazz ensembles at weddings and other special events.

About Justin
Hello^^ My name is Justin. I studied Music Composition and Piano at Towson University, and I've been teaching for over Nine years. A few things I would like you to know about me are that I love video games, cartoons, and movies. I especially love the music found in them. Teaching, for me, is a way to learn. If something doesn't make sense we must figure out what's going on inside the mind. By discovering the best way for a student to learn or how a student learns best, already, we have a gateway to endless potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
-Fun and engaging

-Customized to how your brain learns. One size does not fit all when it comes to education!

-Keyboard Memorization, Sight Reading, Singing, Posture, and Technique

-Theory and Harmony

-Compose and perform your own Music!

-Free Interpretation and Artistic Deve
lopment

A typical lesson with me will have us tackling a number of music fundamentals and general technique. My goal is to teach you HOW to learn, as well as what to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio consists of a separate fully furnished room with an acoustic upright piano.

*** Specialties ***
The only general method that I use is teaching basic singing to help develop a strong sense of relative pitch. I specialize in teaching Classical and classical hybrid musics including video game scores, and movie scores.

When our daughter said she wanted to take piano lessons, we checked out several instructors in various teaching settings. We feel very fortunate to have found Justin for our 10yr young daughter's first piano lessons! His approach with her has invited her to want to learn and do well. He selected just the right books for her lessons and is also helping her learn a song she wants to play from one of her favorite bands. This keeps her engaged with other aspects of skill building and music reading! He also wrote out a clear description of what she is to include in home practice sessions. We definitely recommend Justin.

About Brandon
Hello!

My name is Brandon L.! I have been a percussionist for 12 years, a producer for 5 and an artist since the day I was born! I'd love to share my knowledge of music with you and I want to show you everything you need to know to start learning on your own!

Working with me will kick start your amazing journey as serious musicians. I have a certified sessions player reputation by many industry professionals such as Rob Robinson, Dave Celentano, Matthew Dubbs and many more!

Whether you're just now beginning or you've been doing it for years, these private lessons will push you to your highest potential and maximize your drive, allowing you to access the next stage of your musical endeavors!
_________________________________

Musicianship as a child was very exhilarating and stimulating so I like to put as much energ
y and excitement into each lesson as possible. Even if there are no signs of progress, the most important thing is to encourage the student because getting better at your instrument is exponential and will usually start off sluggish.

My first steps into getting to know the student better is to begin with having them choose a style of music that they like and play along with some of their favorite artists, in order for them to loosen up and get excited for learning. When I feel the student is fully comfortable and ready to begin our learning process, I will also have them play along with a style more complex, or out of their comfort zone, if you will. This establishes a sub conscious goal that they will want to reach every time they pick up their instrument which result in long-term commitment, respect and understanding of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Before taking lessons with me, there are only 2 things you need to know:

.You are REQUIRED to express your creative side with 100% honesty, there will be no holding back in creativity in my classroom!

.Keep in my that though we want you to be as open as possible, I will often have strict guidelines for the benefit of your musicianship. It may seem like I may push you sometimes and it may seem to get boring and pointless.. but your musicianship will improvement exponentially with each lesson!

About David
Having taught many students for nearly 10 years now ranging in age from 4 years old to adults, I have found that students enjoy their lessons the most when they truly excel in their studies. I've found this to be true for students pursuing music as a hobby just as much as students wishing to have a more traditional classical education. My goal is to always make sure that students are progressing towards and even surpassing their goals as well as enjoying their lessons more and more each week.

I teach out of my home studio in Ellicott City, where I live with my wife and two small boys. In addition to teaching, I am also pursuing a DMA in Sacred Music at Catholic University of America in Washington, DC, where I also serve as Graduate Assistant for Music Ministry.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are crafted to meet the interests and as
pirations of each student. Although I try to emphasize strong fundamentals with every student, I also strive to be flexible and accommodating.

It is truly unfortunate that so often music theory is presented as a mere collection of naming systems and rules. To me, understanding music with the mind is a key ingredient to becoming an effective and inspired artist. In music lessons, I teach not just how to talk about music but the fascinating complexity of how music operates - the fundamental principles that illuminate the translation of sound into thoughts and emotional expression.

I offer instruction on a range of topics: composition, improvisation, theory, ear training, arranging, piano performance and more. While providing a broad, synergistic foundation in musical skills and understanding, I also encourage students to pursue their unique interests and inspirations. On the first lesson with a new student, I'll always go over the options for potential areas of study and work with the student to develop an appropriate course of study customized to their needs and interests. For information on the other areas of study that I
