Classical, Jazz, Blues and Improvisation. Current students are beginners to professional musicians and music teachers.

About Robert
Creativity, skill and love of music are the key elements that I work to encourage in every student. Over the years my teaching has evolved and I find it gratifying to take people far beyond their own expectations while helping them achieve their goals. I believe everyone is musical and just needs the right key to tap into their own creativity.

For beginners it's important to study with an excellent teacher. Setting a solid and creative foundation makes all the difference!
For advanced players studying with a great artist takes you greater artistry.

Weekly private lessons focus on technical skills in either piano, voice (or a combination of both) and a strong musical foundation. Theory and Ear Training are fundamentals that are embedded in this approach to developing a complete musician and artist.

I have over 20 years exper
ience working with students as young as 3 and old as 85! Often multiple generations in a family study together making for a rich family experience.

Performance opportunities: Recitals, Concerts Cabarets and Musicals are a part of developing into a musician and singer and enhancing a love of music that will last a lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
Piano - Classical, Jazz, Blues and Improvisation. Current students are beginners to professional musicians and music teachers.

Voice – I am an accomplished vocal coach and songwriter and currently work with a wide variety of singers from young beginners to professionals who look to develop through ear training, singing and songwriting. In a unique way I guide people to become better performers and musicians through the combination of voice, piano and composition.

I work with students as young as 3 or 4 and into their 80’s. It’s important to begin with an excellent teacher from the start to set a good foundation and to have the ability to develop as quickly and thoroughly as possible. I enjoy working with beginners as well as accomplished musicians. I also believe that music is one of the great joys of life and that lessons should be FUN!

Besides a wide variety of performance opportunities through my Family to Family Concerts, I also offer my students the curriculum and exams of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music, a gold standard music curriculum.. The ABRSM is accredited in over 100 countries worldwide and exams are offered twice per year in all instruments and voice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lesson room with grand piano, vocal mics, recording equipment. Parents can sit in on lessons and waiting area available, parking on street. No pets.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They will need a piano or keyboard

*** Specialties ***
A message from Robert: Hello, I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with a very creative approach to improvisation and composition. I help students to achieve their interests of music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. Classes are tailored to the student and constantly evolving. This has led me to work in a variety of mediums and styles including Jazz, improvisation, rock and blues. This approach also enhances an understanding and love of classical music.
I also guide my students in the curriculum and exams of the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music. (ABRSM) Exams are offered twice per year.
I have also found it inspiring to work with people with disabilities and help them find a way to express themselves musically. I give lectures and workshops in the area and around the country on improvisation and creativity along with concerts of my own music.
I also work with a number of students in vocal coaching and accompanying.
New this year are seminars in songwriting for adults and children. Groups of 4-5 collaborate on new songs. Film and video composition coming soon!

Experienced piano teacher available for eager beginning students of all ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills and technique. I tailor the lessons based on the student's learning style so concepts can be grasped quickly and be a fun experience while becoming more confident with their piano playing. Music theory, note reading, and posture will be incorporated in the lessons. I have a piano for playing as well as sheet music of various styles available.

About Heather
Heather is graduate from George Mason University with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance. An active member of GMU Opera, Heather participated in the program's performances of 'A Christmas Carol,' 'Amahl and the Night Visitors,' 'La Boheme,' and 'Suor Angelica;' as well as Carolina in the studio scenes of Cimarosa's 'Il matrimonio segreto.'

Heather made her solo debut at the Kennedy Center in April 2011 singing for the Karen Reedy Dance Company along with singing for the GMU Dance Company.

Heather has been studying voice for over 10 years emphasizing on pop and musical theatre styles prior to her opera training. Having learned the natural way of singing, Heather incorporates vocal health into her lessons with the theory of "self-awareness" while singing. Each student will sing only what is comfortable for THEIR voice and will r
eceive, as well as give, feedback on their singing.

I just had my third lesson today and I've loved the lessons so far. Heather has already helped me become a lot more confident with my upper register by helping me with my breathing techniques. The stretching and breathing at the beginning of the lessons made me a lot more comfortable from the start. I'd definitely recommend her :)

About Jean
I have been teaching piano for approximately 35 years. I've had experience with all ages and levels of students. I am also a church organist and music director and I have taught general /vocal music in the public school system for 24 years. I have had the pleasure of being an adjudicator for the Pennsylvania Piano Student Festival. I am a member of the Maryland State Teachers Association, Greater Baltimore Music Teachers Assoc., Baltimore Music Teachers Association, Harford County Music Teachers Association, The Early Music Society of Baltimore, National Federation of Music Clubs, Bach in Baltimore Chorus , The Welsh Choir in Delta, Pa. and the American Guild of Organist.
I graduated from the College of Notre Dame University with a MA Degree in Music Education. I have continued my private studies throughout the years with notable
professors. I attend piano teaching workshops on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with new teaching materials.
My students are taught a complete knowledge of music theory. The fundamentals of scales, chord structures, arpeggios etc. are an essential part of every lessons. Music technic is developed with these fundamentals. I teach a variety of music genres such as Jazz, Contemporary, Classical and Hymn playing, depending on the age and musical development of each student.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach a 45 minute lesson but a 30 or 60 minute class is an option. In my experience, students 5 or 6 years of age, depending on their maturity level, do perform better with a 30 minute lesson. As they progress, they will move to the 45 minute lesson.
I have studied with many wonderful piano professors over the years.
Duke Thompson (Maryland Music Conservatory)
Ernest Ragogini ( Notre Dame University)
Jane Tan (Composer of teaching repertoire and teacher techniques for teaching)
Virginia Reinecke (Loyola University)
Fredrick Petrick ( Peabody Conservatory)
I cannot fail to give credit to Mrs. Marie Heck my first music instructor who inspired me with her gentle manner and her love of teaching.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music Room: grand piano and organ.

*** Specialties ***
Classical Style all periods, Hymn playing, some Jazz and Contemporary music.

Jean is a wonderful teacher. She's dedicated and patient with her students. With a great music background, Jean has given our kids (two of her students) great music & piano techniques/methodology and a way to approach music that is by far superior to that of any of the previous piano teachers. She is agile in her approach to teaching piano with the belief that not one teaching method is applicable to all kids.

About Kristin
I began playing at 4 years old. I loved classical music and taught myself by listening till I was 6 and started formal lessons. I continued lessons throughout high school with a Julliard graduate. During my senior year of high school, I had the amazing experience of playing in Weill Hall, located in the famous Carnege Hall, as part of the young artist showcase.
While attending Vassar College, I continued to take private lessons with another Julliard graduate, as well as taking classes in theory.
I am currently attending George Mason University in pursuit of a second B.A in music. I hope to apply concepts I learn in my classes to my lessons with my private students!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have beginner to advanced piano books in both performance, lessons, and theory.

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.

Most important of all, she always remind my son the right habit of the way to play violin at the beginning which I think is very important for beginners! She has a lot of patience and encouraged my son a lot! I highly recommend Annie for both young kids and adult students.

Students can expect to learn the basic concepts about their instrument, basic theory, rhythm, will learn a song on their first lesson! Students will go on to learn more and more involved songs and begin to learn to read music. I use the appropriate Alfred Beginner series of books for kids and adults. My method is a non pressure environment where learning is fun!

About Michelle
HI Everyone!!!

I am an award winning singer-songwriter/producer. I have been playing out locally for several years now. I also write songs for Film & TV and have had several placements on shows like Reign, The Fosters, Benched, Longmire and more! I am fairly new to the music lesson game, but found that I love it. I have a teaching/training background which allows me to break down the material into small chunks of absorbable material. I love to teach and I love music and that combination is a winning strategy. We will talk about your goals, the music you would like to learn and plan a basic strategy tailored to your learning style. I teach in a low pressure low stress environment with lots of encouragement. No need for perfection here. We will work through this together! Oh and of course we will have FUN! Hope to have you
as a student soon! - Michelle

I've been teaching piano for over 8 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to play songs in any genre and style that you so choose. I specialize in classical piano and accompanying (especially musical theatre), typically using the Piano Adventures books, but depending on the age and level the repertoire will be adjusted! I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Rachel
**IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BOOK LESSONS WITH ME IN NEW YORK CITY I AM HERE FOR JUNE 2017! WE CAN SWITCH TO A SKYPE FORMAT AFTER THAT :)

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 am currently getting my masters in voice and pedagogy (teaching) 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!

Rachel is my daughter’s piano teacher, and based on our experience with her, and in comparison to my son’s guitar teachers in his early years, Rachel is the best music teacher that I have encountered. Rachel is great with kids, she knows how to keep my daughter engaged and away from frustrations. In her lectures, Rachel maintains a nice balance between fun and challenging songs, and in every assignment she give out, her student either polishes a technique or acquires the new one. All in all, Rachel creates a great learning environment and provides a positive experience.
