I'm an experienced piano teacher for over 11 years that's looking to work with eager students of all experience levels from ages 5 & up! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in what they need to know to be successful.

About Chanel
Hello there! I'm Chanel Narcissus and thank you for your interest in my studio. I have been teaching private lessons and recording music since 2007 and am able to teach lessons at your home, online or at Studio Nar, LLC located in the Towson area.

My education career has afforded me the opportunity to be a graduate of Sheffield Institute of Recording Arts with a concentration in Audio Engineering. I also attended Morgan State University, where I was a double major in the concentrations of Vocal Performance and Classical Piano. Here, I received my Bachelors of Arts degree.

Throughout my career, I have gained in depth knowledge and experience in teaching voice, piano and theory, audition preparation, audio engineering, production and song-writing and I look forward to sharing it with you.

Honestly, after just one session, I am confident I made the right choice to choose Channel as my instructor. She has a beautiful and bright spirit, she is encouraging, and covers a lot of material during her session. She is structured, takes notes to learn of you and track progress, and much more. I am absolutely excited about future sessions with her.

I had a terrible experience with the first teacher so Chanel was a wonderful change. She was totally prepared, helped teach me how to read music (it will take a while), she had a booklet for me with my "homework" book, my notebook, cancellation terms, etc. Very professional, organized, and friendly. I would HIGHLY recommend her anytime!

I have been profoundly classically trained in music for over 12 years. Started as a tutor at the age of 16 and kept going till this day, for over 11 years now.
I like to build great relationships with all of my students, weather they are adults, teenagers or children. For me it is very important students gets to feel comfortable at my lessons, as in this way they can focus better, have more fun and learn faster how to hit their goals in the musical field.

About Florentina
I am teacher since I was an adolescent. Always wanted to do everything it takes so my pupils take what they need from my lessons, understand and assimilate all the information, and also live with the desire of coming back and continuing with me the journey in the field they have selected.
Many of my students became my close friends that I go to see operas, broadway shows , concerts or other cultural and entertaining events with.
I also organize recitals and interesting meetings with the participation of my students.
For any additional information, contact me and I will answer in no time.

About Marie L.

Frederick, MD

I earned my B.A. in music at Hood College and have spent the last fifteen years teaching general music classes as well as private voice and piano. I am also a preschool teacher in Montgomery County and my strengths lie in working with young children. If you are looking for a beginning piano teacher for your child, I would love to meet you! I use the Alfred series and generally have students work out of the technique, repertoire and theory books. Lessons are designed to be a half hour, and I understand the importance of changing activities frequently and keeping lessons fun and engaging when working with young children.

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 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 piano and particularly enjoy working with children (I am a preschool teacher by day). If your child is interested in learning to play the piano, this is a great first step; 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. Yo
u 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.

Marie has completely changed her attitude about piano; my daughter has progressed quickly in the last year and even enjoys practicing. I couldn't recommend a better piano teacher!

About John F.

What I enjoy most about teaching piano is:

The opportunity to transform the piano into more than a box with buttons, but rather an instrument capable of communicating every type of human emotion in limitless ways, that is if our bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain=

As a musician who takes excellent care of his health with physical activities and sound (pun intended) nutrition, I'm a firm believer that playing the piano requires lots of physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is consistently proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in physical training outside of studying music.

Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies, which instantly heightens their musicianship and individual artistic expression.

This is what separates me from 99.99% percent of piano teachers.

You will learn exactly how your body and hand move at the piano so that you will be able to play any ...

About John
What I enjoy most about teaching piano:

The opportunity to transform the piano into more than a box with buttons, but rather a device capable of communicating every human emotion in limitless ways, that is, if our physical bodies are up to the task.

Let me explain:

As a musician who takes great care of his health through a range of physical activities & sound (pun intended) nutrition, I'm a firm believer that playing the piano requires tremendous physical control, dexterity, and poise.

This notion is constantly proven true again and again when I give lessons to children and adults who are engaged in sports or any other physical training outside of studying music. Because they are in good shape, they can demand much more from their bodies. This instantly heightens their overall musicianship and individual artistic expression.

My approach to piano lessons simply put is: How do we form as close a physical bond as possible between the instrument and student? In terms of piano, I achieve this by training the student's hands to move; in the best way; in the right way; in the most healthiest way; in an athletic way.

Now, you *do not* have to be an athlete to see results. My point is= I take an athletic position in terms of teaching piano.

I fully understand music theory, chords, scales and rhythm. So does every other teacher.

What most other teachers do not know is=
How to teach students to move at the piano.

This specifically is what separates me from 95 percent of piano teachers.

Overall point= If we did not have a body with which to move, we would not be able to make any music at all. So on a fundamental level, your body is the first thing that needs to be trained when learning a new instrument.

About Saad M.

Columbia, MD

Classically trained pianist and youth soccer coach. In my free time, I enjoy reading, composing music or playing sports.

I will make sure to communicate and understand the specific goals my potential student may have and diligently work towards them.

About Saad
I am an aspiring singer, songwriter, pianist, recording artist and sound designer. i am currently studying at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Students can expect to improve week to week in their technique. Every one has a ability to succeed; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to play with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach students of all different ages and experience levels. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

With over five years of teaching experience and a lifetime of playing, I provide customized private lessons based on each student's skill, pace, and learning style. An age appropriate curriculum is chosen to maximize both learning and enjoyment. Students of all ages and abilities are welcome! During lessons, students will learn proper hand techniques, artistic expression, and music theory while mastering songs from classical, folk, jazz, and pop genres. If you're interested, send me a message!

About Christine
I have been teaching the piano since 2010 after graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering. My goal as a teacher is to provide students with the tools they need to succeed in their own musical journey, whether they pursue the piano for the rest of their lives, switch to other instruments, or decide to pursue other interests.

I started studying the piano when I was four and began participating in piano competitions in the 5th grade. When I was in 8th grade, I won first place in a concerto competition and was able perform my piece before a live audience, while accompanied by an orchestra. That opportunity helped me realize that I love sharing music with others, be they students, fellow musicians, or members of an audience. Throughout the years, I have pursued this love by playing the p
iano for/with friends and family, singing in choirs, and playing the violin in orchestras and ensembles. While attending the University of Maryland, I was a member of the Gamer Symphony Orchestra, where I sung with the choir and led the soprano and alto sections in rehearsal. Today, I also work as a piano accompanist and church musician, where I sing with the choir and play the violin, in addition to playing the piano.
