I have 21 years of piano playing experience and have competed and placed in many local competitions, including the Maryland State Solo Festival hosted at the University of Maryland. I have also performed in venues such as the Embassy of Austria in Washington, DC, McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, Canada.

I use a hands-on approach to teaching piano, and believe in demonstrating techniques and exercises in a way that's accessible to all levels. Being a classically trained musician, I have a wide repertoire that includes the works of Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, Schumann, Chopin, Prokofiev, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin and more. However, I believe that students should be able to choose their own repertoire, whether that is pop, classical or otherwise. Specific techniques and learning methods for those genres would be applied accordingly. I acknowledge that everyone begins or continues piano lessons for their own reasons, and I am there to accommodate those reasons. For me, the most important thing is that students are enjoying playing music and progressing towards their goals!

About Erica W.

I am a graduate of University of Maryland, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance, in addition to my two B.A.s in French and Government and Politics. I have been playing piano for 17 years, accompanying for 6 years and teaching for 3 years. I am also able to help with basic to intermediate levels of music theory.

Additionally, I am able to tutor all levels of elementary, middle and high school, as well as undergraduate college level French. I have studied French for 12 years, and have gained experience in the language through living in Montreal, studying abroad in France, and living in a French immersion program for 3 years. I am currently a French teacher at Fluent City, where I teach Beginner French to adult students.

CANCELLATION POLICY:
If you need to cancel or reschedule a lesson, make sure you do so 24 hours or more prior to the lesson start time. Makeup lessons will not be scheduled for lessons that have been cancelled less than 24 hours in advance, and will be marked as "missed." This means that the credit for that lesson will be used for the missed lesson. I highly recommend students and parents to check ahead in their calendars and notify me about any changes in scheduling as soon as they are aware of them. Please contact me for further questions.

Erica is a great teacher. She is very patient and willing to work through my technique issues. I am able to choose some of the pieces I work on, while also working on some pieces she assigns me.
