Wilma is a patient teacher who works really well with my daughter. I have her a 4 out of 5 stars because she didn't let us know about the materials needed before class.

Our experience has been very positive. My granddaughter is making good progress and is enjoying lessons. She has only had four lessons, but is doing well. The teacher is very encouraging and low key.

Kimberly E.

Bowie, MD

About Kimberly

My educational background is in flute performance; I have completed a Bachelor's from American University, Master's at Catholic University, and Artist Certificate at George Mason University, all in music. I have been teaching flute lessons to students of all different levels, from beginners to adults, since 2010 and would love to add to my studio!

Another passion of mine is math. I began volunteering as a peer tutor in high school and have since had experience in helping a wide variety of ages and ability levels throughout many different curricula. I am able to provide great test taking tip
s, homework help, and an extra boost to keep students ahead of the class.

Kim is truly amazing in every way. She is the best math tutor in Washington DC hands down. She is patient, smart and extremely easy to work with and learn from. She has helped me enormously prepare for getting into business school. I strongly recommend her to anyone seeking a fantastic math tutor who knows how to break down difficult concepts in a comprehensible manner.

Earl C.

Greenbelt, MD

About Earl

International guitarist Earl C. is now offering in-person and online coaching sessions. With more than thirty years of experience, he has performed with many well-known artists including grammy-nominated celebrities and others such as Freddie Jackson, Regina Belle, EU, Angela Bofill, Alyson Williams, Mya, Syleena Johnson, Nick Colionne, Mike Phillips, Michael Lington, Bobby Lyle, Marcus Johnson, Bob Baldwin, Pamela Williams, and more.

Earl Carter is extremely knowledgeable, and very patience. You will find that each session is enjoyable yet challenging. I would recommend Him to anyone from the beginner all the way to the more advanced student. If you have the desire to learn the art of music then you will enjoy His instruction. I couldn't ask for a better instructor.

Rachel S.

Ellicott City, MD

About Rachel

Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 8 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include cl
assical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with you!

Just a side note- due to an EXTREMELY demanding schedule, I do ask for flexibility when scheduling. GENERALLY, I can fit new students into my Sunday schedule, or potentially Saturday evening, depending on location. Most of my students are located in the Ellicott City/Fulton/Laurel area, so it is easier for me to be flexible with those locations. For weekdays, I am typically available late evenings. If you are a student who would like lessons during weekday mornings/early afternoons, I have the most flexibility!!

Thanks so much!

Rachel has extensive experience in teaching and performing. Her degree and experiences as a singer and pianist allow her to relate to students from a unique technical perspective. Rachel is not only a talented teacher, but a kind person who is eager to help.

We have had 3 or 4 lessons for our daughter with Rachel. Everything has been going great - she's working nicely with our daughter, is punctual and responds immediately with communication.
