Private Classical Voice Teacher

I can help you develop the discipline to increase your range and technical performance with sight singing and ear training

About Aleksis

My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do.

My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis.

I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

I have been teaching music pr

ofessionally now for over twenty years. Some students want to take a few lessons to see if it is something they will enjoy, others have worked with me for over a decade. I have mentored several students who have gone on to professional careers. I have experienced a lot of success teaching young children and those with special needs. I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of patience and truly enjoy teaching anyone who wants to learn.

Whatever your goals or abilities, I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Experience fun based lessons as my teaching approach is relaxed and inspirational. I enjoy working with all ages, adjusting my teaching methods to accommodate your learning style and abilities. Learn to play the music you love! You learn best when you enjoy what you are playing, I can help you play along with your favorites or even write your own songs. I always ask my students at the beginning of a lesson "What would you like to do today?" Then structure the lesson accordingly into a routine that the student can practice on their own. Generally the time is divided into warm ups, learning new material, then picking a fun song the student choses. Whether your interest is Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop music, etc... I'm here help you reach your goals so let's make your dreams come true with music together!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books, Guitar, music stand, metronome, picks, tuner, page clips, capo, media player, laptop, Keyboard (on request), and recording equipment (on request)

*** Specialties ***
With Voice I specialize in helping people prepare for auditions such as American Idol. I have students who simply want to be karaoke stars. I have several professional singers that hire me as a voice coach and producer for recording sessions. I have taught children as young as 2 and those that retired with a lifelong dream to sing. Though my training is classical, I can teach Jazz, Pop, Rock, Rap, R&B, etc...whatever is fun for the student. I highly recommend learning to read music but I do not push it unless parents want their child to.

With Piano I can teach traditionally from Alfred and Bastien Piano Courses depending if they are auditory or visual learners. For Kinesthetic learners I use Hanon scale exercises and Rothman Rhythm Exercises. For those that want to learn notation I introduce classical and Jazz composers unless there is a popular artist/band/movie theme etc...that they would like to learn. However I do not push students to read music unless their parents would prefer it. I tend to keep more students that want to learn to play by ear especially adults by using rhythm training and music theory exercises and then applying them to songs they love. For piano I haven't had much success with children younger than 3. I also have a lot experience working with special needs children.

For Guitar I teach Classical, Acoustic, and Electric all styles and genres. I encourage sight reading but don't mind using tabs. I use more exercises with these students, since the first month students have a hard time making a sound. I try to make the lessons fun by having students strum chords along with songs they chose. I teach lead and rhythm even songwriting and composition. Job satisfaction for me is seeing my students leave a lesson with a smile on their face so I make sure to be a fun based teacher that doesn't give the student a hard time about not practicing.

For Recording and Performance I use the knowledge I gained doing Pro Audio Sales for Guitar Center from 2000-2002 to help clients build their own home studio. I have lots of producers and engineers I work with on a regular basis to produce broadcast quality audio and video recordings and help my students use their lessons and pre-production for those opportunities. I can teach Garage Band or Pro Tools classes on navigating the software and utilizing all the commands. I can also teach room acoustics and using the right microphone and how to position them with the right equipment and the right acoustics to get the best possible tone that they are looking for. I can also teach editing, mixing, looping, sampling, midi, and mastering so that the student can eventually work on their own writing, performing, and recording their music.

About Michelle

Instilling and nurturing a love of music and developing musicianship are why I’m a voice teacher. I earned my Master of Music Education degree in 2012 from Boston University, which has furthered my love of teaching and given me even more resources to draw from.

With all my students, I emphasize good technique. No matter what genre of music or age of student, singing in a healthful and fun way includes great posture, breath management, and producing a free and easy sound. I believe that each student has their own unique way of learning, so I tailor my lessons to fit. Students are both encouraged to sing music they're familiar with and to try something new. Immediate feedback and specific practice instructions help my students gain a sense of confidence and assess their progress. Last but not least, singing should be fun!

I'm a member

of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, The Voice Workshop, and the Loudoun Fairfax Music Fellowship.

She is energetic, funny, and enthusiastic to work with her students. Our son had his first lesson tonight and enjoyed it very much,

I worked with Michelle for a little over 2 years. As an adult student, I was super nervous about singing in front of anyone - it took me this long to just sign up for lessons! She was patient with me and gave me lots of tools for dealing with my nerves and stage fright. Michelle helped me to choose songs that I not only wanted to sing but that matched my voice and range. I was hesitant about performing in a recital but Michelle pointed out that it was like training for a marathon - doing all the work but not performing just seemed silly. It wasn't perfect but it was definitely something I'm proud to have crossed off my bucket list.

Lessons with an emphasis on healthy technique/the foundations of singing. I can assist with learning notes, rhythms, musicality, foreign language, and more.

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!

Beginning classical training is one of this most exciting adventures you can take! My own musical journey has taken me performing from DC to Europe and Asia, to Princeton and NYC, and now back to the DC area! Having completed a Master of Music in Vocal Performance and Voice Teaching at the Westminster Choir College, I would love to take part in your classical vocal training! Together, we can create the perfect program for your needs. Whether your goal is to sing professionally, or to learn how to sing in tune, I am your gal!

Thank you so much and I look forward to teaching you!

*Note* I'm only able to travel to give in-home lessons when the lesson duration is 45 mins or more.

About Grace

Hi there! My name's Grace and I'm a voice teacher and a classically trained performer. I’ve been in the DC area for about 2 years now and am delighted to grow my voice studio! If you or your child loves to sing and would like to take your singing to the next level, feel confident as a soloist, or prepare for an audition, give yourself or your child a classical basis for how to healthfully sing. Now is the time! I have a varied background: I started out in musical theatre and choirs and now sing with orchestras, opera companies, and churches. I began teaching privately in college, then taught private lessons, before proceeding to the Westminster Choir College, where I received a Master of Music in Voice and Voice Teaching (formally Vocal Performance and Pedagogy.) Hope to meet you soon!

*Note* Due to the number of students I currently t

each, I no longer travel to student’s houses. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I earned my B.A. in music from Hood College and have studied with Elaine Bonazzi in New York and Ruth Drucker in Baltimore. I sang opera professionally in my twenties and have been teaching private voice lessons for fifteen years. Many of my students have gone on to music conservatories or universities for vocal performance (classical and musical theater), but if you are just looking to have fun singing that is great, too!

*note: for voice lessons I only teach female students

ONLINE VOICE LESSONS: I offer VOICE LESSONS ONLY online as piano does require a physical presence at the keyboard with the student. If you are interested in online voice lessons, there are some differences from a live lesson to consider:

During live lessons, I accompany my students on the piano for their songs. During online lessons, due to lag time and my need to clearly hear you during lessons in order to give solid feedback, you will need to have an audio source separate from whatever device you are

About Marie

I earned my B.A. in music from Hood College and have been teaching private voice/piano lessons and general music in schools for the past fifteen years. I sang opera professionally in my twenties and early thirties, and have taught voice to both the young beginner who just likes to sing for fun and the serious musician preparing for a career in music. I also teach beginning - intermediate piano and particularly enjoy working with children (I am a preschool teacher by day). Thanks to my background in working with young children, I understand how to pace a lesson to keep a young child interested in sitting still on a piano bench for thirty minutes straight ;)

If you are interested in piano lessons, please have either a real piano or weighted keyboard at home for practice. You will also need to purchase a few music books (about $5 each).

Voice students will need to purchase song books ($15-20) after we meet and I get a feel for the student’s range and what type of repertoire we should work on.

Note: for VOICE LESSONS ONLY I only teach female students.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I am a British musician with 5 years experience teaching singing, music theory, choir and conducting. All ages welcome. Lessons are customised to the needs of each student. I'm a patient teacher who can help you achieve your musical potential. Do get in touch with any questions you have - I'd be delighted to hear from you!

About Patrick

I am professional singer and conductor, with music degrees from King's College London and Cambridge University.

I like to encourage my singing students to develop a healthy vocal technique, and to apply this to music that they love to sing. I know how joyful this process can be from my own study, and I love to pass this on to my pupils.

I'm also passionate about helping conductors become more confident. I achieve this by analysing every element of what they do, from score marking to rehearsal preparation to every gesture they make, and guide them to solutions to any problems they have. I want them to feel relaxed and in control when they're on the podium, and know how to get them there!

I'm also experience in preparing students for music theory exams, sight-reading tests, and helping them improve their listening skills.

My personal pa

ssion is choral music but I firmly believe that great training is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to fulfil your musical potential!

Private Classical Voice Teacher

A student’s learning experience should be fun, exciting and inspiring, as well as stimulating and challenging. Over the years, I have come to realize that all students respond differently to concepts and materials presented in studio or class, depending on their backgrounds, interests, and learning styles. Prior knowledge has a significant effect on a student’s perception of new information, and therefore, instruction should be flexible and uniquely tailored to address each student’s needs, goals, strengths, and weaknesses.

In teaching the vocal technique, I frequently utilize my science background in my teaching, especially when explaining scientific concepts such as the acoustics of sound and its relation to singing; however, I also acknowledge the fact that some students respond much better to other teaching methods. I always aim to be well-equipped to present the information through multiple approaches and tools, which include imagery and metaphors.

I firmly believe that ...

"Mr. Thomas is an outstanding vocal coach! He is patient, understanding, passionate and positive. I've been with him for about 5 years now doing Classical
music. I started out as alto and now I am a mezzo soprano. Mr. Thomas never gives up on you and always make sure that you are having fun on what you do and improve on your technique but also to be apart of the piece and understand where it's coming from. I am still doing lessons with him to this day! He gives you many opportunities to expand and learn."

"Jamie has been my voice teacher for almost three years. I have enjoyed working with him on a variety of different songs and musical styles. He always has
fun, sometimes challenging warm-ups for me to do at the beginning of each lesson. During the lesson, he is very good at helping me find better or easier ways to sing certain notes or phrases. He has a good ear and can tell if I'm singing something in an inefficient or incorrect way. When he offers me corrections or suggestions for ways to improve my singing, he does it in a way that is easy to understand and doesn't make me feel incompetent.
I feel that my singing has improved quite a bit during the time I have been working with Jamie. And as my voice improves, so does my confidence. I always look forward to my next lesson to measure my progress and to see what new things I might learn."

I really enjoyed that she made my lessons challenging enough to help me grow musically, but always working on something within my reach. She also has many incredibly useful performance hacks to help get out the best of you when its time to be on stage. I am happy to say that all the time and our hard work was well spent. After I auditioned for the college I wanted I received not only the acceptance letter, but also a near full tuition musical merit based scholarship. Thank you so much Dani!"
