About Richard
I am a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory and I hold two degrees in piano performance. Through my world-class teachers I can trace my musical education lineage directly to Mozart, Liszt, Haydn, Chopin, Mendelssohn and Beethoven. Over several decades I have taught more than 3,000 beginning and advanced students, a number of whom have gone on to earn piano performance scholarships from prestigious conservatories, music schools and universities. I have composed my own course method based on the piano teaching method of Carl Czerny, a student of Beethoven and the teacher of Franz Liszt. Beginners quickly gain confidence to perform in public and learn to perform increasingly difficult and lengthy compositions such as the Beethoven sonatas, Chopin scherzos, works of J.S.Bach and many others all from memory. One of my students just complet
ed, from memory, a Beethoven sonata of 28 pages. Several of my students are on youtube.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students must have a piano or keyboard at home and are expected to practice every day. I have written and published the music and the course of study for all first year beginners; They learn proper fingering, how to memorize music by learning finger patterns, and how to count in rhythm. The more time they spend in practice will determine how quickly they advance, Upon completion of my initial course, they begin to study works by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin. Children can begin lessons from the age of 4. Parents of students from 4 to 8 years of age must sit in on lessons and practice regularly with the child at home.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio are two Mason Hamlin grand pianos. A professional concert adjustable stool and a collection of nearly all classical piano music. There is a waiting room with coloring books and a TV.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I teach in my students' homes, they must have a piano.

*** Specialties ***
Vengerova Method based on the French School; Close Fingering Techinque

I am a senior in my 70s. Teacher very cordial. Liked his way of explaining the way to learn the piano. I never played so was a bit nervous. He inspired me. Practice lessons were enjoyable. Looking forward to my additional lessons. First time in my life with belief that I will be able to play the piano.

I've been teaching piano lessons for almost 10 years and I offer weekly private lessons to beginner, and intermediate students from age 4 through high school. The piano lesson include a balance of theory, ear training, sight reading and repertoire appropriate to the student's level and musical ability.
So get ready to make some music! I'll make sure that each lesson will challenge your level of concentration and ambidexterity. Using both hands together, we'll slowly begin to play a series of simple, but melodic tunes with the right hand playing the lead, and the left hand adding harmony.

I teach beginning and intermidiate piano with the Alfred's method which is a lot of fun and includes an orchestral play along CD, plus I teach ALL my students the Circle Of Fifths which is all about our major scales. You will learn how to write all the key signatures in the major scales. When you learn all your scales you will receive a very elegant reward!! Then as time moves on I will teach you at the intermediate level. I also teach my students how to play chords and how to transpose from one key to another. We have a lot of fun . You don't have t be a concert pianist to sound really good with my techniques!

About Dr. Jeanne
*Hi and welcome!!

My students like to call me Dr. Jeanne, so feel free to do the same! I have been in music all my life and I love helping my students no matter what level they may be.from beginning to advanced. My experience in music started on stage at age three and by the time I was 21 I was singing and dancing on national television in many variety tv shows after having won the tittle of Miss Memphis. I studied music at Stephens College in Columbia, MO and the University of California in music andI have since taught hundreds of voice and piano students everything I know about music and performance. Piano is a joy to teach, but my greatest love is teaching voice .I specialize in all styles of music as long as I feel it is musical, developmental and expressive.. Music takes time and discipline to master and I'm looking forward t
o meeting you and hearing all about your goals and dreams in music and how I can help you along your path.

I am very happy taking voice lessons with Lilly as evidenced by me willing to drive an hour to see her. She has a lot of knowledge and experience in singing and therefore understands my needs so that I can produce what she asks me to. I had no singing ability in the beginning and I was so embarrassed by my voice I couldn't even sing when I was alone. Now, I feel encouraged by the progress I have made and would highly recommend Lilly as a voice instructor.

Our 9-year old daughter has now had 5 lessons with Louis. The difference between these lessons and the lessons with her previous teacher are night and day. She is excited about the lessons, looks forward to each one, and enjoys practicing. She loves piano again. Louis is absolutely brilliant. He combines a strong classical foundation with enjoyable modern songs, which he often transposes or simplifies himself to the level of his students at that time. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. As a piano player myself, I've had many teachers over the years, and Louis is the best I've seen. I'm tempted to start lessons for myself again!

My fundamental approach to playing and teaching piano follows a principle enunciated by the legendary Glenn Gould: "We do not play the piano with our fingers but with our mind." I focus on the mental and conceptual aspects of interpretation at the piano -- not to the exclusion of the physical component, but stressing that bringing these physical actions under conscious control is the key to success at the keyboard.

About Steven
Steven holds a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance from San Diego State University, where he has also worked as a Lecturer in Piano and Resident Artist in Collaborative Piano. He now lives in Washington, DC, where he is a Teaching Artist at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, and a freelance pianist, piano teacher, and composer who regularly takes the stage at Friday Morning Music Club, Rock Creek Chamber Players, and Ensemble Deburau recitals. Steven specializes in teaching motivated adult piano students at every level, from complete beginners to advanced players.

I teach a wide variety of students from beginning to intermediate. Capable of teaching more advance levels. I encourage all of my students to enter into competitions and perform in Suzuki concerts!

About Valerie
I believe anyone can play piano. I teach a combination of the Suzuki method and traditional styles. I encourage my students to develop their own style of playing while also growing in their knowledge of theory, form and technical expertise.

Are you most ready to the learn the basics? I can work with you! Are you looking to perfect the moonlight sonata? I can do that too! What about by ear and playing Billy Joel and modern music? Yep. That's fine too!

While I am an engineer during the week, there is nothing quite like watching your student be able to complete his or her first piece. This is my "fun" job. I started teaching in college several years ago while working as a nanny for several families in Virginia. In 2015 I decided to formally offer lessons alone. It's been a pleasure and success so far with students participating in co
ncerts and performing at their schools.

I am a member of the Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area. I have availability on Sundays in Vienna, VA and evenings in Washington, DC.

Piano and Music Lessons for Little Hands!

I have over twenty years of experience working with toddlers, young children and their families . . . and was Project Lead in the development of a hands-on curriculum for early childhood music that has been used all over the country.

Beginner lessons with me can include not only an introduction to the keyboard, and entry into learning piano and musical notation, but explorations of musical concepts like steady beat, experiences with rhythm or movement, and opportunities to try out or even make other music instruments to play with.

I am happy to individually classes for each student and family based on their age, level and goals and desires for learning music and piano.

As a graduate of the New England Conservatory Certificate Program I have been trained in piano, music theory and choral arts. In addition to piano can play the alto and soprano recorder, accordion and baritone ukulele.
