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 ***
Lessons in store front studio, drum kit provided

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring a practice pad. Students should have a drum set.

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Funk, pop, and classical.

My son's reaction after one lesson: Charles is awesome!
I whole-heartedly agree! He jumped right in, asked some great questions and quickly deduced Jonathan's skill level.
He was able to give him something tough enough to really challenge Jonathan, but still within his range to be able to do..

Great!

Our 5 year old son is currently taking lessons with Mr. Stewart. Mr. Stewart is a fantastic teacher who is able to communicate effectively with our son. Mr. Stewart sets expectations at the beginning of each class and gives assignments until the next lesson. He asks that our son dedicate ten minutes a day to his lessons. We are overjoyed that our son has learned so much in just three lessons. We look forward to a wonderful journey with Mr. Stewart.

Alexandria, VA

Highly qualified, engaging, experienced piano teacher. Member of MTNA, VMTA, NVMTA. Former member of CAPMT, MTAC, NGPT. All ages, levels, and abilities welcome.

About Tasha

As a classically trained pianist, I focus on a solid foundation of the "basics," but also branch into other styles the student expresses interest in pursuing. I teach all ages, levels, and abilities. I focus on nurturing each student's unique talents and developing a positive and lifelong love for making music.

For those with pre-K children, I also offer:
Private Lessons: the WunderKeys program for a head start in music, math, and life!
Group Music Lessons: KiddyKeys - Make Every Child A Star!

*** About the Instructor ***

Tasha graduated from the University of California, Irvine
in 2013 with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance under the tutelage of Nina Scolnik. She has worked as an accompanist and private music teacher in Long Beach and Orange County, and recently relocated to Alexandria, Virginia. Tasha is a member of the Virginia Music Teachers Association, the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association, and of the Music Teachers National Association.

She has been a member of the National Guild of Piano Teachers, the California Association of Professional Music Teachers, and served on her local Long Beach branch's board for the Music Teachers Association of California as 2nd Vice President in charge of professional development and programming. She regularly attends annual teaching conferences to continue to improve and enhance her teaching.

Tasha is currently writing her thesis to complete her Master of Arts degree in Musicology from California State University, Long Beach, focusing on female French Baroque composers.

In addition to almost ten years as a private music instructor, her teaching experience includes lecturer for college theory courses and studies in early childhood development at Long Beach City College, where she also holds an Associate of Arts degree in classical saxophone.

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. I follow the student's interest is specific genres of classical, jazz, blues or pop and add pieces from those genres that students will find interesting and exciting.

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.

About Rachel

A graduate of Duke Ellington School for the Arts and the prestigious Berklee College of Music, Rachel Panay is a 6 time Billboard Club charting singer/songwriter in the Dance music genre. She recently returned to her musical theatre roots appearing as Rose in Theatre Lab's production of The Secret Garden. Rachel is also a Wolftrap resident teaching artist in DC schools and has been commissioned by Wolftrap to create and perform her original children's performance piece, Jazz Cat/Blues Kitty. She leads worship music weekly at Luther Place Memorial Church and sings with community gospel choir
, The Ambassadors of Praise.

As teacher, Rachel is warm, friendly & energetic. Her passion for every facet of music is expressed in her desire to impart that same appreciation to her students. She tailors lessons according to the individual student's goals and interests. With younger students, Rachel communicates regularly with parents so they can work together to get the most out of lessons!

Rachel was a wonderful teacher: patient, talented, and very attuned to my specific needs and goals. As an adult pursuing singing lessons, it was important to me to have a teacher that could be flexible to my schedule and my goals, and I had a wonderful experience with Rachel. I'm sadly leaving DC, so won't be able to continue lessons, but will definitely miss her as a teacher!

Kepa F.

Waldorf, MD

I offer individual and discounted group piano lessons (to help parents afford lessons for 2 or three student lessons.) In my lessons students learn to play by ear, read music, compose original music, and even to improvise. I try to keep things fun, and children's lessons involve a lot of moving and interactive computer/tablet activities as well. These resources are available for adult or teen lessons as well, but not required.

About Kepa

Hi! I'm Kepa Freeman and I'm a musician/educator/composer/tutor/songwriter based in Waldorf, MD who's offering a few different services on this site, but one thing is consistent: I work my hardest to give fun/engaging lessons that guide my students to success.

In terms of credentials I have a Master's of Arts in Teaching in Special Education (Trinity Washington University) and a Bachelor's of Science in Music (Temple University). I'm also a licensed Special Education Teacher for grades K-12 in Washington, DC. On the musical side, my musical credentials can be heard here: www.broadjam.co
m/kepafreeman.

A little about my experience as a teacher. I've spent the last 5 years working as an elementary Special Education Teacher. Before that I was a Music Production Teacher. Before that, I was a teacher's aide for a Special Education High School. a Substitute Teacher, and a Tutor. Overcoming challenges to show my students success is what I do!

I hope to work with you soon!
