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.

My 8 year old is so enthusiastic about piano. Jean has been able to get right to his level and feed that enthusiasm. We left the lesson and Tyler said he wanted to be a famous pianist like Mozart...thank you Jean for showing us how to start.

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.

Mr. Brown is very attentive to my 6-year-old with piano lessons. He's very patient and always pleasant. He also tailors his lessons according to my child's development to ensure he's grasping each concept before moving on to the next lesson. I would highly recommend him as a piano instructor.

About Ian
I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.

I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.

After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.

Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach you take with each student will be different, basic standard requirements will consist of:

1) Being able to loc
ate notes on the piano in relation to middle C

2) Being able to recognize notes on the staffs and play them in the correct locations on the piano

3) Scale theory- understanding how scales are constructed and being able to play at least 2 octaves of all 12 major scales with both hands at the same time

4) Chord theory- understanding how triads and eventually seventh chords are constructed

5) Sight reading- there is a "trick" to this, if you will, a way to go about approaching tunes that I've found makes them easier to digest

6) And for those interested, we can give the lessons a more Jazz-oriented approach (lessons would then more heavily emphasize scale and chord theory, syncopation, and learning Jazz standards)

Remember, we are all students. Instrument teachers, instructors, coaches (whatever you want to call them) do not represent an end to the learning process, but rather a continuation of it. We're all trying to improve, develop our craft, build up our chops, practice new and uncomfortable things, and expand upon our abilities of what we can do. I have heard from Jazz pianists in their 80s say that they are still learning, still trying to get better. I think that's an important thing to keep in mind as you begin this journey. The journey never ends, it just extends and continues. You'll never run out of new things to learn. The only thing you can strive for is to be the most competent you can be at your instrument. Your playing ability at any point along this journey is only a mere reflection of who you are at this moment in time. So make this moment the most meaningful it can be. The journey begins here.

About Susan
Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.

Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.

Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.

Speaking – Every public spe
aker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.

Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.

I've been taking lessons with Susan Scher for about two months now. I can easily say I've been impressed at how much I've improved. I look forward to lessons every week. I feel that soon enough I'll be able to audition for roles in film and television. If you live in the Baltimore area and are interested in voice acting or any acting in general. Contact her and go, you won't be disappointed.

I did not know what to expect when I signed up to take classes with Susan. I decided to take classes with her for two reasons: Her studio is not far from me and 2, the good reviews left by her clients. All I wanted was to learn the fundamentals and techniques about acting. Susan was excellent and very patient. She offered water in each lesson, which is also very kind. Her interpersonal connection brings a sense of comfort. Her studio is very neat and welcoming. I do not have regrets in my selections and I know you won't be disappointed too.

Jordan is a good dude! In two practices I have learned more than most years of lessons. Feel like on a path to not just playing guitar, but understanding it. Also, first teacher ever that I'm not watching him play his guitar the whole time. He watches, listens, and gives excercises to learn and improve.

About Jennifer
Helloooo! My name is Jennifer Lucas and I've been giving voice lessons since 2014, and I love teaching students the techniques and vast history of the jazz genre. I specialize in helping students prepare for college auditions in the jazz voice field by teaching entry level improv, jazz vocal stylings, ear training, sight singing, and basic breathing techniques. I am currently a student of the jazz voice department at Howard University, under the direction of Proffessor Connaitre Miller, and private instruction of Irene Jallenti.

I'm a firm believer in speaking things into existence, meaning if you are motivated and willing to learn you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to! So no matter what the level of experience, I hold ALL of my students to the same high standard. That being said I accept students of all ages, and skill le
vels. If you're ready and willing, I will do everything I can to help you along in your musical journey!

I understand that learning something new can be very daunting. I know that in particular, because I am still new to teaching! We can both learn together. I want to make it my goal, to help you be a better musician, performer, and most obviously: a better drummer. I care deeply about making sure my students understand what I'm teaching them, and patience is the key to that.
I have self taught myself to play drums for 15 years, and have been performing for 10 years. Please ask me any questions, I'm an open book.
I also attended Sheffield Institute for the Recording Arts and am a certified audio engineer.
My ultimate goal, is to help you reach yours!
