It is truly unfortunate that so often music theory is presented as a mere collection of naming systems and rules. To me, understanding music with the mind is a key ingredient to becoming an effective and inspired artist. In music lessons, I teach not just how to talk about music but the fascinating complexity of how music operates -- the fundamental principles that illuminate the translation of sound into thoughts and emotional expression.

I offer instruction on a range of topics: composition, improvisation, theory, ear training, arranging, piano performance and more. While providing a broad, synergistic foundation in musical skills and understanding, I also encourage students to pursue their unique interests and inspirations. On the first lesson with a new student, I'll always go over the options for potential areas of study and work with the student to develop an appropriate course of study customized to their needs and interests. For information on the other areas of study that I ...

Great first lesson. Learned new methods to improve bowing. Looking forward to the next lesson

I am coming to the cello as a brand new beginner. I have play around with some fretted instruments, ukulele, banjo, etc. But Irina was super at getting me relaxed, focused on basics and encouraging me with small, but important mechanics and technical details. I have taken other music lessons like sax, so could compare. I totally enjoyed the start of my cello training.
Oh, btw, I'm retired and over 65!!!

I offer viola lessons at my home in Eldersburg, and welcome prospective student inquiries from all ages and levels of experience. As a teacher, I recognize that each of my students follows their own path toward their musical development and personal fulfillment, and I am highly invested in guiding them every step of the way with care and expertise. Above all, my goal is to inspire within my students a personal love for music that they can carry with them well beyond our lessons, and ultimately into a more fulfilling life. To that end, I develop an individualized curriculum for each of my students catered to their own abilities and personalities, ensuring the most effective learning possible.

I hope to hear from you soon, and to help you along your viola journey!

"I always looked forward to Sean's lessons, even if I knew I hadn't practiced nearly enough because he always made the class's environment comfortable and conducive to learning--whether it be about the theory of my instrument, or background about a certain artist/song I'm interested in, or even figuring out how to combine music theory from various parts of the world and relate it to our lessons. He is well versed in a variety of musical topics which facilitated my transition from playing the piano to the ukulele. I thoroughly enjoyed my classes, always learned something new, and am excited to take more in the future :)"

"Pattricia has been great with my daughter. This is my daughter’s first time learning piano, and Pattricia makes it fun and is so encouraging. She takes a genuine interest in my daughter as a person, not just as a student. My daughter is 9 and has really enjoyed learning how to play. Pattricia gives her a combination of lessons she can do at her current level as well as stretching her skills. but she always reminds my daughter to have fun while she learns. We couldn’t ask for a better teacher for her first time experience! Thank you, Pattricia!!"

"Have been taking violin lessons with will for a few months now. As an older student doing this as a hobby, Will is super patient working with me at my slower pace ;) . I was hesitant at taking violin lessons virtually at first as I thought it was going to be impossible for me to learn without someone next to me in person, but Will has a great method of teaching and I was actually able to pick up basic technique's early on.

Will comes with a ton of knowledge of music and musical techniques in general which definitely shows.

I highly recommend Will for a teacher of all ages!"
