Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

About Nathan
I have been teaching private lessons for close to 10 years and have been an active performer for even longer, playing in all different types of groups, from rock bands and jazz groups to orchestras and brass bands. I studied music at Frostburg State University (Bachelors) and the Peabody Conservatory (Masters). I can teach just about any age and skill level and cover anything you are interested in learning; whether its a certain style, genre, technique or song.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are laid back, with a focus on perfecting the basics. Most students work out of a method book appropriate to their skill level. Aside from that we'll also spend time learning songs and pieces of the students choice. With the right amount of effort, you'll know your way around your instrument in no time at all

*** Travel Equipment ***
Will provide sheet music and exercises. My students should have a working instrument as well as any method book or sheet music we are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I teach all styles and genres

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.

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.

Jordan is amazing, he can just learn a song by ear the first time he hears it, I’ve been working with him for a little over a year and I never thought I’d be able to do that, but my ear has really started to develop. He always offers positive critique, never negative and always patient!!

***Note: I am moving out of the area at the end of June***

Hello! I am a classically trained violinist and violist. I got my Bachelor's degree from the Hartt School of Music in Connecticut and I am currently working towards my Master's at the University of Maryland School of Music. I started playing violin when I was 10 and since then I have also learned viola, piano, guitar, ukulele, banjo, and mandolin. I have a successfully maintained a full studio of violin and viola students and can easily adjust my teaching style to meet each student's needs.

As a performer, I have performed in professional opera and musical theatre orchestras as well as on my own in solo violin recitals. I love working on various genres of music with a special place in my heart for contemporary classical music. I have worked with students between the ages of
6-adult, abilities ranging from beginner to advanced players. Feel free to reach out and ask any questions, I would love to hear from you!

Miss Phoebe is an excellent, patient instructor for my two young violinists! She is prompt, and has lots of tools in her tool kit to bring about proper posture, tone, sound. She exhibits a very warm kind discipline that makes clear her expectations without being mean about it at all. I think my kids have made significant progress under her tutelage and I would definitely recommend her for any skill level!

I'm an adult learner who went through Suzuki book 2 and a few other pieces with Phoebe as my instructor. I spent a month prior with a "bad experience" and hadn't taken lessons in probably 10 years before that.

Working with Phoebe was GREAT. She was very easy to work with and really saw to improving my skills. She was encouraging and very positive. When I had troubles with parts (which was often), she would always have multiple suggestions as to how to practice them to work through the difficulties. She also gave me nudges along when I didn't think I could do certain things too. All in all, I had a great experience working with Phoebe and would have loved to continue to work with her if she was still in my local area.

If you're wondering why not 5 stars, that's more from my lack of experience than any issue with her. The guide says 5 stars is the "best teacher ever". She probably was the best teacher ever for me, but I'm somewhere between beginner and intermediate. Is she a good fit for an advanced student, I'm going to guess that, yes, she is, but I don't know that info personally so I went with 4.

About Patrick
I am professional singer and conductor, with music degrees from King's College London and Cambridge University.

I like to encourage my singing students to develop a healthy vocal technique, and to apply this to music that they love to sing. I know how joyful this process can be from my own study, and I love to pass this on to my pupils.

I'm also passionate about helping conductors become more confident. I achieve this by analysing every element of what they do, from score marking to rehearsal preparation to every gesture they make, and guide them to solutions to any problems they have. I want them to feel relaxed and in control when they're on the podium, and know how to get them there!

I'm also experience in preparing students for music theory exams, sight-reading tests, and helping them improve their listening skills.

My personal pa
ssion is choral music but I firmly believe that great training is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to fulfil your musical potential!
