Jason F.

Baltimore, MD

About Jason

Hi, I'm Jason. I've been teaching and performing as a full time career for 23 years. During that time, I've developed a diverse, flexible approach to teaching that is customized to the needs and interests of each of my students. I'll help you set up musical goals, and then use your preferred learning style to help you achieve them.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal is to help you unlock your full musical potential by tailoring your lesson experience to your unique interests and goals. Your lessons will be a balance of technique and creativity. My studio is equipped with pro sound gear
and software so we can incorporate drum sounds, keyboards, bass, and guitar into your lessons.
I encourage all of my students to read standard notation, but it isn't necessary if you would prefer to learn by ear.

*** Specialties ***

-I'm comfortable teaching most styles, including R&B, Jazz, Blues, Gospel, Funk, Rock and Metal. I try to encourage all students to learn the basics of music theory, so you can understand the music you learn.

-I use a wide range of method books. I also use books that I have authored, which have been used in music programs in Baltimore area private schools and charter schools.

Adina V.

Mechanicsville, MD

About Adina

I am a professional violinist with the National Philharmonic Orchestra at Strathmore Hall in Bethesda, Maryland. I also joined the Faculty of College of Southern Maryland (CSM) in 2013 where I teach Violin,Viola and Chamber Music Ensemble. I have been teaching violin with great results for more than 15 years and started my violin studio when I moved from Florida to Maryland in 2005.
Graduates of my studio have been admitted to prestigious conservatories such as Oberlin Conservatory, Manhattan School of Music, Rutgers Mason Gross School of Music and others and have won many competitions thr
oughout the United States.
I have a deep love and appreciation for music and I enjoy teaching my student (from beginners to very advanced or adults). All levels are welcome! My studio is geared towards the motivated student seeking a well-rounded enjoyable, yet detailed, music education that focuses on both excellence and artistry.
Special emphasis is placed on building and maintaining a strong classical music base, which is the foundation for all other styles and techniques found in music. Additionally, students are exposed to learning concepts in ear training, sight singing, music theory, music history, folk music and improvisation. This enables students to be exposed to other areas of music such as composing, arranging, conducting, etc., thereby giving each student the unique opportunity to branch out and explore endless opportunities.
All teaching is conducted in a supportive yet challenging environment. Each student is encouraged to think for themselves and develop their own judgment through the development of their ear and musical comprehension.
Student recitals I arranged once or twice a year to showcase my students talent and progress and encourage their love for music.
I also organize other activities for my students such as Master classes and Music mind games (for younger students). I have a group class "Building music and memory skills" designated for children age 4 to 6 (children learn basic concepts in music theory and ear training before starting playing an instrument).
I offer a half hour lesson for beginners, a 45 min. lesson for intermediate an an hour lesson for intermediate to advanced students. Above all, I strongly encourage enjoyment of music.
Music should be played from the heart with passion and excitement.

WHEN YOU START TAKING LESSONS YOU WILL NEED:
a violin with bow and strings in playing condition, rosin, a kun shoulder rest (the right size for your instrument) and a music stand - see chart bellow for the right size violin and bow or contact me for the best way to measure your child.

4/4 (Full Size)-11 years to adult

3/4 violin and bow- 10 to 11 years

1/2 violin and bow- 8 to 9 years

1/4 violin and bow- 6 to 7 years

1/8 violin and bow- 5 to 6 years

1/10 violin and bow- 4 to 5 years

1/16 violin- 3 to 4 years ( average kids)

1/32 violin and bow- 3 to 4 years (petite kids)

Travis P.

Cheltenham, MD

About Travis

Hi,

My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet performance from the University of Maryland College Park.

While there, I played with the Wind Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra and Jazz Band. I am also a regular performer with the Prince Georges Phil Harmonic.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work
through the fundamentals of the instrument including fingerings, embouchure, breathing, and scales. Once mastered, the more difficult obstacles such as repertoire, range, dexterity and endurance are approached. I do not work with a set schedule for students, and tailor the lesson plan for the student's growth and practice.

A wonderful instructor for my 6 year old daughter. I appreciate how he mixes theory and truly teaching her what she is playing and why she is playing it a certain way, with fun and enjoying playing the piano. I can see that she is getting a lot out of the lessons. I would highly recommend Travis for these types of lessons.

Haley R.

Arnold, MD

About Haley

Hi! My name is Haley, and my specialties are music and math. I have been playing harp for many years. It's my passion in life, and I would love to share the gift of music with others. My musical education includes a Maters degree in Harp Performance from Yale School of Music and a Bachelor's from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University. I have played with numerous orchestras, both as a soloist and orchestral musician, and currently serve as the principal harpist of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra. I have also been a prizewinner in several national and international competitions. Whil
e I always enjoy performing, I also love to teach!

In addition to music, I also hold a degree in Mathematics, another great interest of mine. So if you want to learn about anything from basic arithmetic to calculus (or beyond!) it would be my pleasure to help you understand the many wonders of the mathematical world.

Why Are Piano Keys Arranged That Way?

When you look at the keys on a piano, a few things pop out right away. First, there are both white and black keys, and second, there is a distinct pattern that the keys on piano repeat.
