I have a degree and certification in violin and piano from the Boston Conservatory as well as a Master's Degree from the University of Maryland. I have had additional training and certification as a Suzuki teacher from The Suzuki Teacher Training Institute. I am a member of SAGWA-Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area as well as SAA-Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have played all around the world including the Vatican, White House, Paris, Russia, England and Wales as well as in Concert Halls such as Carnegie Hall and Kennedy Center. I have taken students with me to perform as well in these countries and also every major concert hall in the Washington, D.C. area. I give my students opportunities to perform whenever there is an opportunity. In addition I work with students to earn music scholarships to private school
s and colleges. I am also a judge in the Young Artist Award in Maryland. In addition, I have received two White House awards for my performances at the White House, I am also a member of Psi Chi International Honor Society.
Music has been an important part of my life. It represents so much that is good in life and I do my best to communicate this to my students. I am training my students not just to be musicians but to love music for life.
*** Lesson Details *** I treat each student as an individual since everyone is different. For some I might use a traditional approach, some just the Suzuki approach and others a combination of techniques. Whatever produces the best results. My goal is not to make strictly classical musicians but to train students to love music and carry this love throughout life. My repertoire consists of everything including traditional, Suzuki, Disney, Showtunes, etc. I have taken students to perform little concerts at the White House, schools, hospitals and concert halls to get the real feel of performing. I view lessons as a three way relationship between myself, the student and the parent so that the parent is not left out. I even have a small group called Musical Magic which incorporates magic into music. I feel I am laid back but am able to accomplish my goal through positive reinforcement. Every child or student wants to feel good about his/her playing. If you believe in yourself, anything is possible. If you want online lessons, please contact me through Take Lessons since I have additional availability to teach online. In the past six months my students have performed for the National Humane Society at their animal ball, a multi teacher recital on a local stage, and just two weeks ago seven of them performed at Strathmore. This summer I have two more concerts planned. Coming up will be an all instrument graduation with several other teachers where students receive medals for their performances. No student is required to perform but if they want to the opportunity is there. All students are required to have an instrument prior to beginning lessons. If students need to rent a violin, I will provide you with the name of a violin dealer that both rents and sells string instruments. Piano students must have a piano or keyboard.
I have also started a toddler music appreciation program geared for the 1-4age range. The purpose of this program is to expose very young children to the fun of Music through instruments, songs and play.
*** Studio Equipment *** I teach at home and have both a grand piano and electric keyboard in addition to a harp and violin.
*** Travel Equipment *** When my students have to travel to perform, I make sure they have everything they need.
*** Specialties *** Traditional and Suzuki approaches for both violin and piano. I also teach children with learning disabilities.and have extensive summer programs to help students with auditions for youth orchestras and school orchestras. At this point in time I am only accepting beginner to intermediate level students.

Hello I'm Chris! I am a Senior Software Developer specialized in website development. I graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Information Technology and a specialization in Web Applications.
I am tutoring students in computer knowledge and Information Technology since the beginning of the year. I worked as a Web Producer at Barnard College in New York City for a full semester and I also worked as a Lead Developer during three years. I currently work full time as a Software Developer with a start-up in New Jersey and I am also finishing my Master's degree in Information Systems.
Learning about computers, development in school and knowing how hard it can be, I came to a realization that what we learn is most of the time not what is being used on the job. Therefore I try to teach and give my students the exact skills they will
need in order to succeed in their careers and personal endeavors.
My lessons aim to everyone: children, teenagers and adults with all levels. The method I use is based on active learning with interaction in order to make my students practice what they learn directly on their computers.
As a tutor but also as a professional, I want to benefit the students I work with as much as possible to achieve that I make sure that my lessons are always tailored to the students and as personal as possible. I am also open to suggestions because the most important thing for me is that the students enjoys our lessons.
I am very easy going and will always answer you as fast as I can so please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
Please reach out if you are interested in learning about website development or just computers in general. I can not wait to help you reach your goals!

Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Melissa Miles was fourteen years old when she was given her first camera. As a teenager, she loved taking pictures of her friends at school with a 35 mm film camera and it was the Church photographer who encouraged her flourishing interest in photography. Melissa studied photography and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications with an emphasis in photography. During her college years, she spent time on campus shooting photos for the university’s newspaper, ‘Sidelines’ and served as the photo editor. Over the past several years, she has expanded her photographic knowledge learning Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for post-processing digital images. Today, she enjoys creating composites from thousands of images I’ve shot over the years. Melissa also enjoys pet photography, graduate and
senior, lifestyle and branded photography. “It’s important to keep up-to-date with new photography techniques and trends in post-processing.” Melissa continues her education through webinars, online classes, and contests. I enjoy teaching and helping others get off to a great start. It can be complicated but with the right lessons the process is much smoother. She is also a member of Professional Photographers of America.
