2015

I am an eclectic pianist and singer with dual Bachelor of Music degrees in Performance and Jazz Studies from Shenandoah Conservatory. My skills are diverse and I enjoy using them as I teach at any level. Other than teaching, I compete in voice and piano competitions, perform as a soloist and accompanist, arrange, and compose. I also play in a funk band called Souled Out, stationed in Winchester, VA. My passion is in classical and jazz music, as well as musical theatre, but I teach all contemporary styles.

Classical Piano · In studio

Mr. MC is an excellent instructor. He always takes into account students' background and interests in order to develop meaningful lessons. He explains and presents new music material clearly, and always models in order to facilitate learning. He also monitors progress continuously and provides feedback on students' performance. One of the best instructors I have had the pleasure to work with.
