I am an experienced piano teacher of 5+ years, specializing in the elementary and intermediate levels of the instrument. I have taught piano students ranging from 5 - 65 years of age and have also worked with students with learning disabilities. My piano lessons are tailored to each individual student's needs and interests. Once my piano students learn their fundamentals, we tap into specific areas of music the student favors. Students will learn how to construct a personal practice routine, will be able to play major, minor, and chromatic scales, will frequently sight-read, will learn the fundamentals of music theory, and much more.

A little about me: I began private piano lessons at age 5 and continued them until age 16. I began teaching piano privately during my undergraduate studies and currently teach online and in-person music lessons.

About Victoria C.

I am an experienced piano and French horn teacher of 5+ years based in the D.C. Metro area, specializing in the elementary and intermediate levels of both instruments. I have taught students ranging from 5 - 65 years of age and have also worked with students with learning disabilities. My music lessons are tailored to each individual student's needs and interests. Once my students learn their fundamentals, we tap into specific areas of music the student favors. Through determination, diligence, and love for music, my students succeed in their music studies. Above all, I seek to inspire those of all ages, to share my love and knowledge of music, and ultimately make a difference in each individual’s life through musical performance and education.

Victoria has been a great teacher for our daughter! We appreciate that she has offered a virtual teaching option for students to continue practicing and playing at home. Our daughter loves to play and Victoria has moved her through learning the basics to learning "real songs" as our daughter says. Highly recommend her as an instructor.

Victoria has been amazing teaching my daughter play the french horn! At first my daughter only wanted lessons for a summer. My daughter has enjoyed taking lessons from Victoria so much, we are still taking lessons with her abt 18 months later! My daughter learns so much in each lesson that she wouldn't get in school.

When my son asked for lessons for the piano I instantly reached out if she could fit him in. Victoria is patient and encouraging with the kids that makes learning an instrument fun!

Victoria has taught my daughter piano for over a year now and she is a talented instructor. She is always on time for her lessons and accommodates rescheduling. My daughter enjoys her teaching and she is growing.
