About Rebecca
I love music and I love teaching! I started out with a passion for musical theater, and eventually I developed a love for opera and art songs. I love how singing requires both physical awareness and mental focus, and I will strive to teach the balance of these aspects. Whether you want to gear up for karaoke or learn how to sing an Italian aria, I can offer you advice and training to help you meet your goals.

I've had a great deal of experience reaching out to students of all ages. I taught undergraduates while finishing my masters degree in Chicago, and while performing outreach with the San Diego Opera and Anchorage Opera. Outside of music, I love competing in triathlons!

*** Lesson Details ***
I will cater each lesson to meet the student's individual needs. Our lessons will be 100% focused on YOU! Each lesson will begin wi
th a warm up to help you find your true voice, and then we can move forward with repertoire choices. We'll explore music which the students will enjoy singing, from musical theater to oratorio to opera. I own a variety of music books, including musical theater anthologies, beginner Italian aria hits, English and French songs, and oratorio.

I started taking lessons with Rebecca over 2 years ago. It was one of the best decisions of my life. Rebecca is a fantastic teacher, very energetic, patient, encouraging and fun. I feel like I am a whole different singer than I was 2 years ago. Before, I used to like singing. But now, I love it, and I have the confidence I need to sing with friends and feel comfortable with my voice. If you are considering taking singing lessons, Rebecca is the way to go! :)

Thank you Rebecca!

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.

Not only one of the best guitar teachers but best teacher in general. Aleksis did the impossible which was actually get me to learn theory. He has a knack for understanding the students learning style and creating a customized program that works best for the student. Lessons are always fun and informative and nothing feels forced. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a great instructor.

· Violin · In studio
I would have described how 'passionate' Gabbi is about violin but unfortunately never had that opportunity. I had scheduled the class 10 days in advance and on the day of the class Gabbi decided to shoot an email couple hours before saying she can't make it.
A dollar is minute is a very decent compensation which I don't make as an engineer with 7 years of college education. But unfortunately that didn't inspire enough professionalism in Gabbi. Maybe she reserves her professionalism for few people and not for everyone.

Gabby is a great violin teacher. She customizes her lessons to your needs, and she encourages and gives great pointers throughout the lesson. My daughter leaves her lessons with so much more knowledge and hints - than when she came with to the lesson. I have seen her improve greatly in her playing in just a few lessons.

About Susan
Acting – I have taught all kinds of acting, including Audition Skills, Shakespeare, Stage, Film & TV, Dramatic, Comedic, whatever. I also have quite a bit of experience performing in all those arenas. I have a relationship with one of the best management agencies in the area, so my students get fast-tracked with her.

Voice – Anyone can sing. If you want to and have always thought you couldn't, you will be delighted when I prove you wrong. Training for the voice is pretty much the same, whatever style you are interested in. Then I'll coach you in your chosen style and we'll pick songs you like.

Singing beautifully is not enough. I can't tell you how many times I heard in grad school "beautiful voices are a dime a dozen." I will teach you how to OWN the song. That's what keeps people coming back.

Speaking – Every public spe
aker I know has lost their voice at some point, but not from talking too much. It's because they don't know how to use their voice properly. Learn that, and you need never lose your voice to over-use. That's easy to teach.

Writing – I have been a professional writer and editor for over eight years, with many books, articles, posts, newsletters, etc. to my name. I use – and teach – practical grammar, not just correct grammar. I can also help you make your words more powerful.

About Norma
Hi! My name is Norma. I was born in Bogota, Colombia. I fell in love with music when I was a little girl, so I began taking music lessons when I was 8 years old. First, I took violin lessons, and after four years decided to switch to the piano.
I also loved to sing. So I took piano lessons and singing lessons at the same time, and after a while I dedicated myself completely to singing. After that I graduated from my music school with a degree in vocal technique.
I have sung in several venues in Colombia and in the US. as a solo artist and as a band member as well.
I also worked at the School of Rock in Coral Springs, Florida for four years, which gave me much more experience with rock music and teaching kids of all ages.
I really hope I can help you reach your goals, and to love music the same way I do.

About Emmie
Hi! My name is Emmie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1996 and have loved helping my students read music and play songs they enjoy. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I started teaching piano when I was in high school (1996) after 10 years of private study. I continued teaching piano through college, taking music courses at the University of Maryland, New England Conservatory of Music, and further private study with professors from the Peabody Conservatory of Music.

I've recently broadened my understanding of the piano as an instrument by taking technician courses from Rick Bulter, RPT for tuning, temperature control, and piano regulation.

About Colin
I hold viola performance degrees from the Eastman School of Music and Boston University, and have spawned a rewarding and diverse performance and pedagogical career that has taken me across the United States and Europe. In lessons, I am dedicated to upholding a positive and enthusiastic learning environment for each of my students, and always strive to help them discover their own love for music--I consider this to be the greatest source of motivation for anyone learning an instrument, no matter their level.

I have a great passion for guiding my students in their development as players, and believe their ultimate fulfillment and success as instrumentalists has as much to do with personal growth as it has to do with musical growth.

About Maggie
I am graduate of Samford University with a degree in Music Composition and Piano Performance. I will be continuing my education by pursuing my Master in Composition at the Longy School of Music at Bard. I have studied classical piano and composition for 9 years and actively study, perform, and write classical and contemporary music. I was a 3 year member of an internationally acclaimed A Cappella vocal ensemble. This past year we toured the Baltics and received the top honors Grand Prix award - as well as 5 others - in Lithuania. I have written music for short film, have had my classical work performed by groups such as Sybarite 5, The Amernet String Quartet, and numerous professional music faculty and students. I have had my own personal songs (singer/songwriter) played by radio stations from Maryland to New York, and was a guest artist
on WTMD's Baltimore Hit Parade in 2015 - performing and getting to talk about my and other music as well. I am also currently in a popular electronic music duo called the Halter Kids, based out of Birmingham, Alabama.

I firmly believe in fostering an intrinsic love and passion for music in students as well as teaching them the fundamental skills that will allow them to progress effficiently and quickly. In studying both Piano and Composition, students will have the benefit of receiving lessons structured not only around keyboard pedagogy but how to reach their full creative potential in writing as well.

Each students is different and it is important to meet them where they are and tailor the lessons in a fashion that is best for them. That could look like lessons focused on classical music technique and repertoire, practice methods, sight reading, or music theory. Or more contemporary methods such as reading from lead sheets, more improvisatory exercises, ear training, and writing music. Whatever fits the student best is the quickest path to getting them to understand and love this art.

I am open to working with students of all ages, experience, and goals. I am a musician of Classical Performance, Composition, Jazz, Songwriting and Singing, but regardless of the genre am extremely passionate about teaching students to find their own path and voice as a musician!
