My 6 year old couldn't stop talking about her first lesson. She was very nervous but the instructor put her at ease and provided constant encouragement.

This has been an amazing process with my God son. He has ADHD and while initially he had some difficulty being focused he is beginning to slow down and is grasping the ability to learn. Wilma is very patient and an excellent instructor. We really approach her.

Tim is wonderful. He's patient, but also pushes you to stretch. He lets you decide where you'd like to go and what you'd like to work on, but has excellent exercises, ideas, and guidance when you need some direction. He's an excellent, kind, and fun teacher.

Karen is a wonderful teacher. Very experienced and patient with a beginner.
Erika H.
Karen is so friendly, sweet, and methodical in teaching style. It is wonderful to be introduced to dulcimer with her and - literally - learn how to fine tune my instrument with her tips and encouragement. She makes me even more excited to tune and play my instrument. I can easily get happily lost simply in the tuning process with my dulcimer as it brings me a lot of joy just to hear the notes come into tune and playing very small, minor amounts of things on my dulcimer as is... it is so nice to have a guide like Karen to help me better to understand and dance with my dulcimer, learn about music and how the dulcimer strings are arranged, and how to hold the hammers! I thought I was excited to learn before... I'm even more happy and excited now and have some clear, down to earth steps to begin to actually really play with my instrument!

Cheerful and energetic teacher with several years of teaching experience and over 18 years of performing experience. I teach my students technique, artistry & musicianship, music theory, music history, composition, sightreading, and improvisation. I believe in a wholistic approach to music that expands beyond the boundaries of the keyboard. In order to understand the piano, you must also understand music as a whole! I firmly believe that that the key to success in learning how to play the piano is learning how to become your own teacher. Many students don't realize that 99% of the work is done at home. Unfortunately, most teachers don't teach their students how to practice, resulting in very slow progress and a bored and frustrated student. I give my students the tools they need to learn quickly, which improves their focus and motivation, and most importantly allows them to have fun! My curriculum focuses on classical music, but also incorporates other genres like jazz and pop ...

About Sarah

I am a pianist and lyric mezzo-soprano. In May 2017, I graduated cum laude from the University of Maryland in College Park. I received my B.M. in Piano Performance under the tutelage of Dr. Mayron Tsong and my B.A. in Vocal Performance under the tutelage of Linda Mabbs. I am a full CAPA scholarship

Sarah is a brilliant pianist, singer and teacher. She is a longtime friend and colleague, and I've seen her develop her musical skills to extraordinary levels. Sarah is also one of the most patient people I've ever met, and has an undeniable passion for music and love for helping others. I highly recommend anyone to work with her--you definitely won't be sorry!
