*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every student has his/her own need because we are all unique as human beings, every one of us has their stronger and weaker skills and my job as a teacher is to find the best tool to pass to the given student.

I am strict but fun, whichever amount the student needs more.

I use the Suzuki books because the songs (and later pieces) in are very good, popular, fun, and evenly progressive.

Achievements depend also on the student and the amount of practicing done at home. I as a teacher can only do that much in passing my knowledge and spur the student own.
Practicing at home is very, very important.

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 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.

Perfect first session. Michael adapted to Rory's deep understanding of music theory but total lack of knowledge of the bass. He was thoughtful, patient, and adaptive introducing the bass and providing practice suggestions to Rory. I recommend Michael in the highest terms as an instructor for beginners and knowing his vast education and experience in the bass I must assume this travels though the entire range of students - beginner to advanced. We look forward to the next lesson.

Jonathan is an excellent instructor. My lessons were scheduled in the evenings and he accommodated my busy work schedule. He presented the lessons clearly; he adapted my lesson to my learning style and never forced me into just 1 style of learning. He also gave me a lesson manual and discussed alternative ways of practicing at home. Joanathan is extremely knowledgeable, I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn violin.

I believe it is extremely important to combine a solid technical foundation with a thoughtful approach to musicality. I constantly strive to help students understand the different roles of the cello in musical settings and the incredible versatility of the instrument. I am passionate about teaching and performing alike and am an active cellist throughout the New York City area, recently having completed my masters degree at Manhattan School of Music.

About Jacob
I recently completed my masters in cello performance at Manhattan School of Music. I teach privately throughout the tri-state area and I am also a teacher with the Harmony Program where I teach in larger classroom settings throughout the boroughs. This past February I was a guest artist and teacher at the VerArte String Academy in Arequipa, Peru. I have attended numerous music festivals such as Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, CA, the Banff Centre in Canada and most recently I was a fellow at the Alba Music Festival in Alba, Italy. I am also passionate about orchestral and chamber music.

As a teacher, I hope to give students a strong technical foundation on the cello while also helping them to understand and appreciate the musical versatility of the instrument. I believe it is extremely important to combine technical and mu
sical skills from the earliest musical studies. I am enthusiastic about teaching students of all ages and varying musical goals.

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.

My cello students are amazing! I teach all ages and all levels and have been teaching for over 20 years. I work hard to discover the best way to approach each student based on their current ability and learning style. I have started cellists and have seen them become incredible musicians...for their own enjoyment and for future development. I have also taken on students at an intermediate and advanced level and helped them achieve their goals for auditions and recitals. I enjoy training all of my students for orchestra, chamber music and solo playing.

About Robin
I am a classically trained performer and have plenty of pop music experience as well. I have studied with the some of the top cellists in the U.S. and Germany. Additionally, I have studied with leading pedagogy professors for my work with young children. I have taught private cello lessons for over 20 years and have infused all I have learned from my teachers into my teaching style. I enjoy discovering how each student learns best and work from their level.

I perform as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral player and have experience teaching these styles of playing. I am a member of the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra and a solo artist with Great Lakes Performing Artist Associates. I was recently named an "Emerging Artist of 2018" by the American League of Symphony Orchestras magazine. My performing gives me great insight into prep
aring students for auditions all other types of performing.

As a pop artist, I perform with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra string section and have shared a stage with Josh Groban, Sarah McLachlan and Michael Bublé. It has been with this experience that I am able to work with students on an array of musical styles.
