Charles S.

Waldorf, MD

I'm a music teacher in DC and also case manage special needs students.

About Charles

Outside of teaching percussion and musical performances I have worked in special education for over 15 years.

My life of music started knee high at the age of 4 playing drums and piano. At the age of 15 I gave my first musical performance, from that stage on I knew my talent had found a home.

In the 11th grade I toured with a local funk group in Washington DC through 26 cities learning music and the life of travel at an early age. During my last high school and college years I performed extensively playing classical, jazz, rock, funk, go-go, gospel, marching band, R&B, and with local
rap artist.

Recording credits and highlights include work with Def Jam artist Steady Eddy, recording go-go Mario with Double Agent Rock, and recordings with Little Benny and the Masters.

My other musical passion is teaching. Throughout my college years and beyond I served as a percussion instructor and assistant band director at Morgan State University. As part of the Morgan State University Magnificent Marching Machine I served as a instructional leader in music and performance mentor for the team. I taught part time as a percussion instructor at Milford Mill High School giving individual lessons for over 10 years.

Musical inspiration is an important element to the refinement of my craft. A few personal musical influences are Buddy Rich, Max Roach, Neil Peart (Rush), Dennis Chambers, (Santana), George Gray (Roberta Flack), Ricky Wellman (Miles Davis), Quinton Mack-Davis (Rare Essence) and Michael Bland (Prince).

*** Lesson Details ***
Within the first three months of lessons student will gain a strong foundation of sight reading and basic drum techniques in both rudiment studies and playing the drum set. My style of teaching music consist of breaking each skill down into chunks and allowing students to learn using their individual learning styles. I utilize rewards for perfect practice and each lesson contains a safe, fun learning atmosphere with students exhibiting in their best behavior.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Dwight H.

Fort Washington, MD

Learning to play the piano is one of the keys to a strong musical foundation, upon which playing everything else becomes a little bit easier. I've been playing piano for more than 20 years, and possess the know-how to help you up your game whether you're a neophyte, mid-level, or advanced player. I'll expose you to a variety of styles, show you how to read if you can't already, drill scales and chords, and get you started improvising and learning to play on the fly.

I've studied and performed a number of genres and stay current on the latest in gear and trends in
order to stay on the forefront as a competent musician.

I'm formally trained, having taken piano lessons since youth, and studying jazz and orchestra in both high school and college. I have experience playing over a wide range of other genres (blues, country, funk, rock, metal) and can help you learn, whatever your goals might be.

My home studio is equipped with a wealth of gear:

Very professional and patient. This was my first time taking piano lessons, so I was a little nervous. He made me feel very comfortable because he was patient and reassuring. YES! I would recommend him.

Dwight is the best teacher I have worked with ever! He teaches his students how to play the instrument, and he teaches at a good pace for you. Dwight is a dynamite bass player, and he knows theory so that is a tremendous combination. I seen him play the piano, drums, and guitar and he is excellent at those instruments.

The other thing that i like about Dwight is that he push his students. As a guitar player, it is important that students push there fingers to try new things. Dwight lets his students step outside of the pocket with solos and we can improv based off of what we know.

Dwight is very patient, and he never gets frustrated or angry when you mess up. I have a number of occasions when i mess up. It is either because i am nervous or my fingers get crossed up. But, he is very professional and he wants the best for his students. I highly recommend that you sign up for Dwight right after your finished looking at this review. I promise you won't regret it.

I had the pleasure of watching Dwight teach my son for a month (June 2015) to present and became enamored with his teaching style. It motivated me to stop sitting on the 'sidelines' and join the party.

I have been around 'bigger named' instructors who placed more emphasis on themselves than the actual development of their students. Dwight is the polar opposite. Knowledgeable, professional, courteous, patient, accessible and understanding. Moreover, I have seen Dwight teach at the pace that is best for the students and yet he gently pushes the student and challenges them to reach their potential.

If you live in the DMV and are looking for a Bass instructor who has talent (multi-instrumentalist), drive and the skill to raise musicians then look no further than Dwight Hill. You will not be disappointed!

Travis P.

Cheltenham, MD

About Travis


My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with kids, 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 County Symphony.

As each student is different, so is my technique and teaching method. Generally, I have students work throu
gh 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.

Rachel P.

Washington, DC

I use the Faber method books for children including the Lesson, Theory & Performance books which all work together to introduce and reinforce musical concepts.

For teens & adults, I generally use an all-in-one method book and then allow students to choose what pieces they'd like to work on, or suggest pieces based on the style of music that student prefers

For younger children just starting out, I implement early childhood techniques to include creative movement and percussion instruments. These enhance and reinforce the musical elements we are working on in piano. They also extend the attention span and infuse the lesson with a sense of action and fun.
