About Belinda
*** Lesson Details ***
NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student.

I emphasize a basic knowledge of music theory, because it
's important for a singer to not only know how to sing, but to also understand the music he or she is singing. I will incorporate music theory into the lessons, starting with basics such as learning how to read notes.

I believe in making sure the singer is comfortable and confident.  The environment you will be learning in is open and non-threatening because a singer needs a place to explore his or her voice.  I encourage my students to make mistakes and to keep the lines of communication as open as possible.  Singers are perfectionists, and we're constantly telling ourselves what we do wrong- we don't need someone else enforcing that negativity.

I concentrate on a classical vocal technique, with proper posture, efficient breathing, lack of facial and body tension, and healthy vocal production. I believe that it is important to have a strong foundation of healthy technique no matter what style of singing. My teaching style and lesson focus will be different for each individual person, and I'm very flexible in adapting to each singer's needs and personality.

I am a very understanding teacher, and very patient, but I will push you to work to your potential! What you put into these lessons and your practicing is what you will get out of it. I am not strict, but I do expect dedication, passion, and respect. I am a very enthusiastic and energetic teacher, and lessons with me will be fun, productive, and encouraging.

If I sound like the right teacher for you, please arrange a trial lesson to see how well we work together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, piano, full-length mirror, comfortable seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
*Teachers classified as a Student Favorite have taught a minimum of 25 lessons and have received the highest feedback rating from students. I specialize in classical singing- applicable to any style of singing!

I have been working with Belinda for a little over 2 years. Every lesson, she challenges me to be better than before. What I love most about her style, is she customizes her style of teaching for the student. I am a very imagery oriented person, and she always helps me to visualize things in ways that makes sense to me. My singing has dramatically improved during my time with Belinda, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. Every lesson is different, every lesson is challenging in a new way, and every time I walk away feeling like that was the best lesson I've ever had. Thank you Belinda!!

About Gina
I have been a singer for over 15 years and have been a vocal coach for over 5. I had 9 years of vocal training, which I have worked to transition into a teaching style of my own. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Theatre and Vocal Performance. I have a good ear for vocal difficulties and a good assortment of solutions.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun, laid back teacher, but I expect focus during the lesson. I would expect practice outside of lessons and for my students to be prepared when coming to the session. I do like to laugh and to make my students feel comfortable. My students can expect results with range, clarity, technique among others.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, speakers for MP3 players, microphones, recording equipment

I specialize in Musical Theatre, classical, and pop.

My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Gina since the beginning of 2013. In her opinion, Gina is a great teacher! She makes each lesson vocally entertaining as well educational. Whether it's tackling a newer pop song with a range lower than your own or a song from an operetta that requires not only a large upper register but also the classical singing characteristics , Gina has the talent and technique to help you achieve your goals!

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.

Great teacher. Very quick with knowledge of theory, and how to practically apply it to guitar, calm demeanor, information dense lessons with the ability to slow it down/break it down to more and more granular levels as needed.
When I take content home from the lessons, I feel like i'm on a clear track towards my lesson goals including a vision of where i'm headed, and why the things I received in that lessons are going to be directly responsible for getting me there, if practiced diligently.
Good stuff.

Dom is a fantastic guitar coach! He takes the time to know what your interests and goals are, then tailors the lesson to accomplish that goal in the most efficient and effective manner. If you're in a rut playing the same riffs over and over again, or just want to take your playing to the next level, I'd highly recommend taking lessons with Dom!

About Grace
Hi there! My name's Grace and I'm a voice teacher and a classically trained performer. I recently moved back to the DC area and am delighted to begin a 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 just received a Master of Music in Voice and Voice Teaching (formally Vocal Performance and Pedagogy.) Hope to meet you soon!

Amanda is an outstanding teacher. She inspires and challenges me to play pieces I did not think I could play. She is able to take difficult passages and break them down step my step so I can learn how to play them properly. I am sure I would not be playing as I am now, if it weren’t for Amanda’s skilled teaching. She is also friendly, makes the lessons interesting and fun and is very professional. I have taken lessons both in person and on Skype and she excels in both modes.
