About Travis
Hi,

My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet Performance from the University of Maryland College Park.

While there, I played with the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra and Jazz Band. I am also a regular performer with the Prince Georges Philharmonic.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work through the fundamentals of the instrument including fingerings, embouchure, breathing and scales. Once mastered, the more difficult obstacles such as range, dexterity, repertoire and endurance are approached. I do not work with a set schedule for s
tudents, and tailor the lesson plan for the student's growth and practice.

I specialize in technique, typically use piano adventures books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: a piano, metronome, etc.

About Rachel
Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 10 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I also hold a masters degree in voice performance and pedagogy from the Peabody Conservatory. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include classical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with
you!

Excellent music teacher and my child is enjoys going to Ms. Ann classes.

To mention that my family knows Mrs. Ann Keen for over 10 years. We happened to know Ms. Ann from the NIST Child Care Center because she worked as a preschool teacher with both of my kids. Being a wonderful teacher my kids keep in touch with her. They absolutely loved her. My daughter started taking piano lessons with Ms. Ann when she was 4.5years old. Ms. Ann had taught everything, starting with all background of music elements and following deeper into techniques. patient with kids.

Hi everyone!

It is a pleasure for me to teach music. I have been teaching piano and cello for more than ten years. All my students no matter which level of playing are having a good quality time in the lesson. Through my lesson, student learns music from different genres such as music theory,music history, ear training and music appreciation. Because of that, my student always tends to learn quicker than they expected.
Besides teaching, I also perform. My philosophy in music learning is that, it is never easy to learn an instrument. Therefore, learning in a creative atmosphere and giving out precise guidance is not only good for students, but also good for me. By exploring music together each week, it will be a fun and engaging experience for both of us towards music learning.

About Alice
I am a classically trained pianist and piano/ cello teacher. By more than ten years of teaching experience, learning with me is going to be engaging and enchanting. I chose the right method books and design the lesson plan/ practice plan according to your needs. Through my lesson, you are not only learning music but also having a great time learning.

I held a Master degree in piano performance from Manhattan School of Music, , as well as a bachelor degree in piano performance from Taipei National University of the arts. By 27 years of indulging in music, I have to say, it is such a fulfilling journey!

Therefore, I would like to meet all of you. No matter what age you are, what level of playing you are, don't be hesitate to talk to me. I love meeting people and sharing musical thoughts. Looking forward to meeting you.

Ms. Alice is one of the most memorable piano teachers I've taken lessons with. I would always look forward to piano lessons because she would make them fun yet still be able to move forward in songs and techniques. Whenever Ms. Alice plays a section of a song for demonstration, I could feel the emotion behind her playing and I think that plays a role in her being an excellent piano teacher.
I enjoyed my lessons with Ms. Alice very much and I strongly believe that anyone who takes lessons with her will enjoy them as well.

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 returni
ng 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.

I studied piano for years throughout my childhood and college years and am so eager to share my knowledge of the instrument. It is one of the most versatile and valuable musical skills that can applied to many situations. Please let me know if you have any questions about studying piano!

About Wesley
I am a recent graduate from the University of Virginia, where I studied music and drama. I have performed operatic and musical theatre roles with several opera companies, including Teatro Nuovo, Victory Hall Opera, Charlottesville Opera, and the Bethesda Summer Music Festival. My performances and studies have taken me across the country, as well as to Italy and France.

I have also worked as a stage director in opera, musical theatre, and theatre stage production. This insight allows me to guide students in their presentation of songs and characters.

I have worked as an educator at several institutions, including Imagination Stage in Bethesda, MD, which specializes in inclusive artistic education. I am passionate about teaching lessons because private instruction allows for a personalized approach that is so necessary in singing.
Each singer's instrument is unique, and I take joy in helping my students find the easiest, healthiest, and most beautiful sounds that they can produce.

I wish to build a solid foundation of students of all ages who are eager to play piano and to hope to inspire young musicians and help expand current musicians' abilities. I intend to instill the students with sheet reading skills, knowledge of key and time signatures, the understanding of harmonic and tonal concepts, as well as a proper technique. Lessons will be tailored to the individual depending on the students' interests and goals as well as the amount the time the individual is intending to devote.

About Lilan
I come from a musical background with my father being a professional musician. I have been a classically trained pianist since the age of 4 and continued formal piano training up until high school.

With classical piano training at young age, I've built up a solid musical background, with a profound knowledge of music theory. I earned my level 10 piano performance certificate, which is the highest level, at age 13. I am fluent with a variety of classical pieces, including ones from Bach and Chopin.

When I was 11, I was able to quickly pick up percussion. I've been in the school band beginning in middle school and continuing through high school (Shanghai No. 3 Girls' High School) and college (Shanghai Jiaotong University).

In my spare time, I enjoy listening to and playing modern popular music as well. I frequently go to a variet
y of entertainment shows including concerts with my friends. For more information, please do not hesitate to ask.

She provided me with practical guidance on my playing skills as well as the emotion in the performance with her on-stage performance experience. She is also a responsible instructor. She will play the chapter by herself to let me better understand the performance. Thanks to her professional instructions and patience, my playing skills have been improved a lot.
