All musicians should have a grasp of music theory! This is how musicians can hear a song and play it…

There are only seven notes in music… I will de-mystify the study of music theory wherein you will no longer be a slave to sheet music.

Learn to Play ANY Style of Music… Rock, Pop, Blues or Jazz through your knowledge of Music Theory!

Ron has been my piano instructor for the past three years. I find him to be very knowledgeable in jazz as well as classical music. He goes above the allotted time to ensure your understanding of instructions, and maintains a professional demeanor at all times, even with wit in his oral approach. I would not hesitate to recommend him for piano instruction at all levels!

I have been singing opera for 7 years now, and Christine had the most thorough teaching process by far! I found my real voice underneath all the conformity I had been taught through choir and am now moving through singing more powerful and with my "real voice." She is open to workshopping repertoire that you are interested in, and suggests things that will help you grow your voice while not pushing an agenda, so you feel as though you have lots of artistic freedom.
Also just a super warm and authentic person. Overall a great experience!
Rashad
Christine is extremely talented and provided me with positive yet technical feedback each practice.
Kelly
Christine is a Godsend! Prior to working with her, I studied classical voice and opera with several instructors. Christine is by far the best teacher and wish I had met her sooner!

As an accomplished singer herself, she is able to identify challenging areas and help improve technique. I’m now attempting pieces with confidence that I never would have attempted previously. And, I find the sessions very relaxing and enjoyable. She inspired me to push myself further and feel like I’m getting great results! Well worth the investment.

About Dennis

I have performed in acoustic Celtic, new age

This was my first ever guitar lesson and I thought it was a blast. The instructor took the time to explain best practices and why they were so important. I also really enjoyed seeing the instructor's passion for the guitar and that passion made the whole experience even better!
Charese
Dennis is a fabulous teacher! I took lessons for 2 (?) years from him in high school, entering with decent knowledge of music from other instruments but only beginner-intermediate guitar skills from self-teaching and guitar class in school (what a joke). From the very start he adjusted to my level, asking me to play something I knew and identifying the chords that I had (unknowingly) played, and creating an exercise for me to practice new chords at home. Lessons were nothing but fun and informative; Dennis is a great conversationalist and incredibly knowledgeable about music theory. His lessons are full of variety: scales (different positions and modes), progressions (written on the spot by Dennis), improvisation (with live accompaniment), transcriptions (of your favorite songs), and learning from the book. Looking back, I progressed immensely under Dennis’s tutelage, from barely playing barre chords to writing my own music in different modes! It certainly doesn’t hurt that Dennis treats his students as equals, and that his home is always welcoming. He’s invested, not the type of teacher to chase you off once your “time’s up.” If I hadn’t gone off to college, I’d still be taking lessons from him for sure! Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for enjoyable, enriching guitar lessons.
Andrew H.
Dennis has a great comprehensive approach to teaching guitar. He helps you understand the nuances of the instrument, and provides specific instruction based on your individual needs. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge, and shares anecdotes about those experiences to help better understand topics relevant to your own personal pursuit of improved playing.

Even if you aren't sure exactly what you want to get out of lessons, Dennis is quick to provide material that will help you improve your skills. They are laid out in a clear way and act as a great resource to add to your collection of practice material.

I'm happy I took lessons with Dennis, and others should definitely work with him if looking for a laid back atmosphere and a steady pace of improvement and understanding.

I teach Ukulele from the perspective of a modern musician and songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun in our lessons and pursuing the style of music that resonates with you. In ukulele lessons with me you will learn chords and strumming styles, how to read and play tablature, chord charts and sheet music if desired, and other picking and accompaniment styles. If you are a singer, we will also work on playing and singing simultaneously and working through difficult counter rhythms. With these tools you will quickly be able to learn to play the songs you love and even create your own! My lessons are driven by my students taste in music rather than my own, so we will always be playing the music that you love!

I'll be honest. I randomly chose an instructor for my 10 year old voice lessons. So pleased! She keeps in contact when there are issues with a lesson. Very flexible when it comes to platforms. Encourages and teaches my beginner in all the areas shes unfamiliar with. Super duper!

"Need a teacher who's very knowledgeable, incredibly flexible, and super caring? Chelsea's the one!

When we were looking for a new teacher after our previous teacher moved out of state, I found Chelsea's information online and contacted her. She spent 45 minutes with me, going over my daughter's musical interests and needs, her teaching philosophy and style. She has carried on that same thoughtful approach for the last three years as she has taught my daughter both piano and voice. She tailors her lessons to her particular needs, working on specific concepts that she needs help with or in support of my daughter's goals.

Chelsea has coached my daughter through musical theatre audition pieces, helped her prepare for all-county and Maryland all-state chorus auditions, and tirelessly worked on various piano and vocal techniques. With Chelsea's support, my daughter has been in All-County Chorus for three years and was part of the Maryland All-State Chorus. She recently had a lead role in her school's musical theater production.

Even more important than all of that, Chelsea shares her love of music. She tells stories of her own experiences with auditions and learning music. Chelsea is always supportive and encouraging, sending good wishes on audition day and ready to tackle a new piece with her at a moment's notice.

I highly recommend Chelsea as a vocal and piano teacher!"

"This past spring I was looking for a teacher who would provide my daughter with excellent music theory knowledge and piano. I did some extensive research and I was fortunate to find Fawn. My daughter has truly been loving the experience of learning the piano and spending time with Fawn. She looks forward to her lessons every week. The lessons are fun and educational. She started back in March and she has already advanced to her 3rd level book! Fawn is super sweet and promotes a comfortable and fun atmosphere, while giving a thorough foundation. She even assigns composers for my daughter to read a few times a month. I was hesitant to do online lessons, thinking it may be difficult, but it's been very easy and effective. Fawn is a great find; if you have a child who is the slightest bit interested in learning piano, songwriting, voice, performance, poetry, etc. then you are in great hands with Fawn!"
