I can help you develop your repertoire and refine your skills with a variety of classical composers to learn from

About Aleksis
My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do.

My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis.

I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

I have been teaching music pr
ofessionally now for over twenty years. Some students want to take a few lessons to see if it is something they will enjoy, others have worked with me for over a decade. I have mentored several students who have gone on to professional careers. I have experienced a lot of success teaching young children and those with special needs. I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of patience and truly enjoy teaching anyone who wants to learn.

Whatever your goals or abilities, I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Experience fun based lessons as my teaching approach is relaxed and inspirational. I enjoy working with all ages, adjusting my teaching methods to accommodate your learning style and abilities. Learn to play the music you love! You learn best when you enjoy what you are playing, I can help you play along with your favorites or even write your own songs. I always ask my students at the beginning of a lesson "What would you like to do today?" Then structure the lesson accordingly into a routine that the student can practice on their own. Generally the time is divided into warm ups, learning new material, then picking a fun song the student choses. Whether your interest is Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop music, etc... I'm here help you reach your goals so let's make your dreams come true with music together!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books, Guitar, music stand, metronome, picks, tuner, page clips, capo, media player, laptop, Keyboard (on request), and recording equipment (on request)

*** Specialties ***
With Voice I specialize in helping people prepare for auditions such as American Idol. I have students who simply want to be karaoke stars. I have several professional singers that hire me as a voice coach and producer for recording sessions. I have taught children as young as 2 and those that retired with a lifelong dream to sing. Though my training is classical, I can teach Jazz, Pop, Rock, Rap, R&B, etc...whatever is fun for the student. I highly recommend learning to read music but I do not push it unless parents want their child to.

With Piano I can teach traditionally from Alfred and Bastien Piano Courses depending if they are auditory or visual learners. For Kinesthetic learners I use Hanon scale exercises and Rothman Rhythm Exercises. For those that want to learn notation I introduce classical and Jazz composers unless there is a popular artist/band/movie theme etc...that they would like to learn. However I do not push students to read music unless their parents would prefer it. I tend to keep more students that want to learn to play by ear especially adults by using rhythm training and music theory exercises and then applying them to songs they love. For piano I haven't had much success with children younger than 3. I also have a lot experience working with special needs children.

For Guitar I teach Classical, Acoustic, and Electric all styles and genres. I encourage sight reading but don't mind using tabs. I use more exercises with these students, since the first month students have a hard time making a sound. I try to make the lessons fun by having students strum chords along with songs they chose. I teach lead and rhythm even songwriting and composition. Job satisfaction for me is seeing my students leave a lesson with a smile on their face so I make sure to be a fun based teacher that doesn't give the student a hard time about not practicing.

For Recording and Performance I use the knowledge I gained doing Pro Audio Sales for Guitar Center from 2000-2002 to help clients build their own home studio. I have lots of producers and engineers I work with on a regular basis to produce broadcast quality audio and video recordings and help my students use their lessons and pre-production for those opportunities. I can teach Garage Band or Pro Tools classes on navigating the software and utilizing all the commands. I can also teach room acoustics and using the right microphone and how to position them with the right equipment and the right acoustics to get the best possible tone that they are looking for. I can also teach editing, mixing, looping, sampling, midi, and mastering so that the student can eventually work on their own writing, performing, and recording their music.

Experienced piano teacher of 9 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical skills. I specialize in technique, typically use piano adventures books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: a piano, metronome, etc.

About Rachel
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 also hold a masters degree in voice performance and pedagogy 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!

I have been taking lessons with Rachel for almost a year and I love working with her. I have noticed a marked improvement in my singing abilities and my confidence has increased dramatically because of it. Rachel starts with a great basic foundation and works with you to bring out your own talent and style. She also has a great balance of teaching you not only the how but the why, which helps to deepen the understanding. I highly recommend.

Rachel is an incredible teacher. She is so good at helping you highlight your strengths as a singer and performer. I don't know what I would do without her for help with audition prep. She knows how to slightly change one or two things to elevate your performance to a new level. Working with Rachel is one of the best decisions I've made as a singer!

We’ll address interpretation, various time periods, phrasing, and more.

About Anna
Hi there! I'm Anna, and I'm looking forward to meeting you. I've been offering private piano lessons since 2009 and offer foundations in music theory, technique, sight-reading and classic piano repertoire.

I begin most students in Faber method books, before branching into classical repertoire including selections from Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Contemporary time periods. My teaching style is flexible though, so I'll be happy to adapt to your individual liking and needs.

In 2012 I graduated from Thomas Edison State College with a degree in music and in 2017 I completed my Master's in Education from Post University. Today I enjoy teaching music to students ranging from six years old through adult.

I believe quality practice and motivation are key to success, and I'm looking forward to helping you succeed!

Anna is an extremely knowledgeable and skilled musician, which inspires her students to want to excel themselves! My 7year old son has been taking lessons from Anna for about 2 years. He is excited to go to his lesson each week! Although my son struggles with some dyslexia, Anna is extremely patient with him and makes him feel like he is valuable and capable. She has adjusted the method and curriculum to find something that works well for him. She carefully explains the lessons, makes my son feel so special, and inspires him to want to learn.

We'll have fun exploring the basics techniques of the piano while working on a dynamic repertoire together. The intention will be to get yourself to the next level of playing.

About Grady
My personal philosophy of music is to explore and learn as much from my students as I can teach them. For me teaching is like going on an adventure to find something together. I've been able to play all over the world and tour with many different musicians and the thing that made the core of every great performance was the human interaction and communication. For me music is about being more human. This is something I just as much try to impart and teach in my lessons as theory and technique. (On a side note I can travel farther than 13 miles as long as it's in the boroughs of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx).

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!

I am one of the most diverse piano teachers you will find. I can thoroughly teach both classical and jazz, as well as theory, composition, and music technology. My teaching style is fun, motivating, and challenging all at the same time.

About Natalie
I have been playing piano since I was 7 years old and grew up with classical training and spent a lot of time composing and learning things by ear at a young age. In high school I attended the Arts & Communications Academy at Thomas Johnson High School. I then traveled to Shepherd University with almost a full ride to study classical piano and composition. After one year I decided I wanted to intensify my studies and attend Shenandoah Conservatory where I began studying jazz piano. While at Shenandoah, I was immersed in a rich learning environment that increased my knowledge and experience in classical repertoire, and gave me my foundation in jazz harmony, improvising, and performing live in a variety of settings and ensembles. In 2017 I graduated from Shenandoah Conservatory with my BM in Jazz Studies. Since graduating I have become a pa
rt of the DC music scene working with R&B artists, singer-songwriters, jazz groups, funk groups, fusion groups and traveled to major cities all over the east coast performing in these various musical groups. Music has been my life for as long as I can remember. I am always performing, rehearsing, jamming, and writing. When I started teaching in high school I realized I had a similar passion for sharing my knowledge with others and inspiring my students. So join me in my studio where you can learn everything from classical piano, to jazz piano, to dealing with synthesizers and learning what all those knobs and buttons mean!

Enjoyable, positive lessons focus on strengths and suggestions for improvement of technique, listening and performance.

About Christopher
I started playing piano when I was about 10 years old. It has taken practice and discipline to play well. One important truth in music that you should know is that if you don't enjoy it, you won't play well. I'm going to listen to your playing, give you some tips and always suggest what you should practice to improve where you are. The lesson is about you and where you are with your piano playing.
