About Dorothy S.

Hi! I am a friendly and energetic teacher (and mom) who has extensive singing experience with opera companies all over the city. In 2017 I graduated from Teachers College, Columbia University with my Master of Education in music education. I also completed my NY state teaching certification. Instead of returning to the classroom, I had a kiddo and decided to build a private studio consisting of voice and piano students.

I’m able to engage students in many ways. My teaching philosophy encourages students to build new skills onto their prior knowledge while keeping music culturally relevant while valuing each student’s unique culture and learning style. I pride myself on having a growth mindset—I never stop learning so my students continue to enjoy lessons and their learning journeys.

Ms. Dorothy taught my then 6 year old son piano for a year, we really loved her! She is engaging, patient, and encouraging, and is in it with her whole heart. We were really sad when she moved away, otherwise we'd have stayed for years and years! I can highly recommend her.

My daughter took voice and piano lessons from Dorothy for a year and a half and loved it!! Dorothy is so sweet and encouraging and made sure to use music that would engage my daughter (Greatest Showman, etc), along with the classics. We were so sad to see her leave DC. I highly recommend Dorothy - your children will love her!
